Have you read their doctrine? Go find out. Why would someone want to be Christian or Muslim? At least Satanists don't crusade.

okay then james when did the satanists crusade?
Report as
Yes james- care to site your source? Do you even have a source? Have you even ever heard of satanist crusades? The concept is actually strictly forbidden by their doctrine in the sins category. They are not allowed to even speak about there religion unless asked about it. So while your at it why don't you describe the freaking amazing mental acrobatics it would take to justify crusading satanism.

Their always crusading. They make human sacrifices . :-) Just so you know those who were claiming to be Christians, the crusaders were religious people not Christian. Just because one claims to be a Christian does not make them one. Just like atheist. Most atheist will say theirs is not a religion. but if you look up the Word religion you'll find different. satanist are no different than atheist because their motto is " Do As Thy Wilt the first commandment in the satanic bible" and that's the very way you think as well. For if you claim you don't believe in God which also means you don't believe in God's Law as well. Which means you do your own thing. :-)

I just want to say i am am not satanist in fact im Muslim, but Jamie let people believe in what they want to believe. Just because i stated that i was Muslim you went on how Islam was not a religion and how i would go to hell. So remeber give sources not preaches

Why does James always smile like a moron even when he's absurdly wrong?
Report as
James there has never been Satanist crusades- I wont disagree with you on the human sacrifice part necessarily because, well, I just don't know. But you are wrong about atheist being a religion- it is only the rejection of god claims- I know the definition of religion by heart because I've looked it up so much so why don't you take a second look.
Satanist and atheist are not even close to the same thing. That is like say carrots and bananas are the same thing- they don't even address the same issue. Once more you are putting words in my mouth- that is not my motto. My motto is don't let the ignorance of others or delusion of self get in the way of happiness, health and humanities prosperity. You can't seem to let other speak for them selves and it appears that surely you are not a person that listens but only wishes to hear himself talk. I don't believe in gods law- that is true but that doesn't give you free reign to judge my code of conduct. If you think talking down to me will help then be my guest though I'm not the one on with a horse on stilts here.

James, most people mean LeVayan Satanism when the say Satanist. Their doctrine is pretty reasonable.

I think dabbling in satanic things is more a fad among young teens in an attempt to be different or "bad". When I was a teenager (back in the dark ages of the late 50s) doing something like this was unheard of. Two of my grand daughters got into this a little when they were teens but they soon outgrew it and went back to their Christian roots.

This is just my opinion....I am sure the answers you get from those that are into satanic worship will give you a very different answer from mine.

Report as
glassboi good for you. I have seen him too. clw99 if you are a christian WHY in God's name are promoting a satanic symbol?
Report as
I know I'm going to regret commenting on this heated exchange, because I'll bet I get dumped on, somehow for something ....
But, just for the record, and for the sake of accuracy, the symbol in his icon is not satanic. It is merely a combination of images from several different ethnic religions that existed quite a few centuries ago. Given the sources, and that the symbol parts are benign in themselves, it appears the artist was merely combining them for an overall beneficial meaning.
Report as
GlassBoi
That symbol is the pentagram and has been adopted by many satanic groups for many years now, at least the past 20. It has also been found to have been left around after Satanic rituals have occurred and is worn as a necklace on those that identify themselves as Satanists. A google search for "Satanic symbols" will reveal the pentragram within 2 hits.
Report as
GlassBoi
I forget to mention that the pentagram is inverted when related to Satan and his followers or pawns

The Satanic bible even uses the symbol on its cover: http://www.churchofsatan.com/Pages/BaphometSigil.html = more evidence

well im not promoting it

GlassBoi
and the founder of modern satanism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_LaVey
Report as
Ok. what does this all mean. whats your point
Report as
GlassBoi
just proving the fact that the inverted pentagram may not have initially been malevolent (which he showed no link or proof of), it has been officially adopted by Satanic's for decades now and cannot be considered benign since it has been fully adopted and promoted as a means of satanism and all things for which satanism represents which is torture along with many other malignant beliefs and actions

so basically the image you use to represent your "image" on ask.com stands for hate, killing, destruction, anarchy, torture and other cruel and inhuman things that is utterly disgusting. I doubt God taught you to promote your image in such a manner as you have chosen
Report as
Ok. Please stop.

And im not promoting my image through ask.com. thats ridiculous.

Report as
Ok, since I'm apparently dealing a True Believer, here, there is no point in further discourse. You will believe what you wish to believe.
My last comment here is simply I that I wholely disagree with your conclusions on the sources of this polyglot of symbology. I have seen the sources you provided as "proof" and I believe they are, in themselves, self-delusional. The "exposing satanism" site, in particular, is a "New World Order" conspiracy propaganda site. Anton LeVey founded his nonsense in 1966. Like Gothic era "satanism", much unrelated ancient symbology was misappropriated from the distant past and ascribed to current practices created from nothing.
The symbols I referred to are historical and anthropological. The religions they trace to are pre-Christian and had no "satan" figures in them. Too many people take a grain of knowledge and twist it to their own agenda.
I believe in facts, not propaganda.
I believe in your freedom to believe as you wish to believe.
I do hope that you will afford others the same freedom, and not presume that you know the inner workings of a strangers heart.
I will not return to this post.

Well, I disbelieve what you say and support the conclusion that the real Satan or anti-christ lead Anton LeVey on in his voyage to be a follower of the real Satan that exists (I don't even know if you believe he exists). Satan is known via Jesus Christ and the Lord to want worshipers from man kind so that he can be worshiped like the Lord himself. Satan uses the Same symbol and is likely the origin of the symbol whether or not it came into belief as a benign symbol which it hardly is associated with and hasn't been for decades. Like any religion it starts and spreads and gains followers just like Satanism has done whether you believe it is a false religion others believe Christianity is a false religion. The fact that you are defending the symbol that has widespread and world-wide acceptance as the symbol for satanism is your person belief and choice. Satanism as it stated from Anton LeVey has been widely televised and has a wordwide followership like Christianity. To think that I stand alone in my belief that the symbol represent Satan and his religion is ludicrous considering the amount of national attention Anton LeVey has developed for himself not to mention his published bible that has existed for decades now and is the only published copy of Satanism. The media has even imprinted on the public's belief that Anton LeVey is the founder of Satanism and done so via Time and other prominent highly viewed and televised mediums.

In my opinion. They are brain washed, they don't know or want to know anything about god. Because if they did they wouldn't do what them ppl do. But that's just my opinion.

I guess they hate God. I read that they look down on those that do good. It said they like to indulge , take vengeanence , and that man should be free of moral codes. Some were
Jayne Mansfield , Sammy Davis Jr. ,
& the Night Stalker.
But there are those that like it I suppose.

Once you come to understand your reason (or, non-reason thereto) to be a Christian, you would readily understand someone else's reason to be a Satanist -- for, they are essentially the same.

Why not? It's basically the same thing as worshipping your god, my God or Goddess, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster. A satanist has found his or her place at satan's side, and I don't really care about anyone enough to worry about what'll come after.

Not that i am a satanist. I'm not. But maybe at least one of them would like to learn more about the devil from a non biased source such as the holy bible. If God truly created him then he probably isnt all evil and may just be misunderstood. However i dont really hold either to be evident i just think that could be the case rather than just assuming that they are evil.
