People don't want to be held accountable for there sins so they want to just "pretend" there is no God so they can "live it up" and enjoy the things that will never last. Consequently they will never know God and the things God has to offer. Without accepting Jesus Christ as their savior and asking Him to cone into their hearts, they will never make it to heaven. People will go along there way and hope God isn't real but they are sadly mistaken and will unfortunately find out God is very real when God sends them to Hell for not accepting Him as their savior. "The path is narrow and few will find it." I'm happier now than I ever was before I was saved. I don't ever wanna go back to the life before I was saved.
God and Satan are like two opposing sides of a war. Some go with God, some go with Satan. In a war, people will still fight on the "evil" side, no matter what. You can't change war, and you can't change the world.
Some people are just rebelling against Christianity, some just want to be different and "edgy". Most who tell you they worship Satan are just young people who want to look cool and think that "satanism" makes them look like rebels. They just look like morons. they are not going to be tormented, they are likely to have a strict Christian upbringing and just want to rebel. It is all silly, Christianity, Satanism, religion. Basing your identity off a story. I would guess you are asking because people at your school claim to be Satanists, they are just trying to be different, they will grow out of it.
I think that people who "worship" satan, do it because they don't really believe in him or in God. (It's usually people who were raised by religious people, but they've grown to dislike it, or simply stopped believing)
Very few people worship Satan. Of the ones that do, most don't see him as Satan (Greek meaning adversary), but rather as Lucifer, the highest of angels. They feel that God has wronged humanity, and that in reality God is not good.
Lucifer, however, stood up for himself. He saw the evil that God had created and decided it was not good. Similar to American colonist feeling oppressed by England, Lucifer started a revolution, garnering his independence and taking 1/3 of the angels with him.
Humans are inspired by his courage and follow in his stead. Rather than "worshiping" him, they more-so revere him, such as Christians, Muslims, and Jews do regarding Abraham. They defy God, creator of all, including good and evil. They feel that creation has surpassed its creator, as we have the freedom to choose good instead of being enslaved by the evil God created.
In reality, it's a matter of philosophy and faith. In their minds, they feel they are choosing good instead of siding with an oppressive evil God. They feel that in doing so, they will be saved. From an objective standpoint, they are really little different than Christians, who side with God, the creator of everything good, who opposes evil that He did not create. The thing is, unfortunately religion isn't objective, and in the end only one side will win. In my personal opinion, I feel the Bible teaches that all will turn to Christ prior to their demise. I can only hope and pray that they do (and evangelize to that effect).
Satan became satan, which means opposer, because he let a bad thought dwell in his heart...it was there long enough that he acted on it... I think thats where most of our crimes come from... Satan and his bad thoughts... Then people want to blame God ... God didnt pull the trigger... God didnt steal from someone... Its us... Not wanting to take the blame... Of course its easy to blame God... Its harder to pray and think of doing the right thing all the time because we're selfish ... Wait till it matters, then those "satanists" will be regretting the grief and rebellion they gave God.
My friends ,christianity and God is not a tale and satan is not a joke,living and growing up in occidental world has his wickedness on the spiritual level ,because you are not in touch with the realness of satan evil work in the world,we africans can tell you for sure what this evil is doing we see it everyday,we see naked people falling from the sky and they all agreeing working for the devil and on God side if you are a real believer,you can chase demons and cure disease so christian life with Jesus is real you can experiment just like you do with science.So don't think those who believe in satan is a joke because satan does not joke at all, reward is money,success and power but you have to make human sacrifices,I know what I am talking about and hell is real that you believe or not but you better wake up and not sleep too long. when you sin meaning disobedient to God ,satan has the right on you that is why the entire world is in his influence except the one who chose to follow Jesus .and this info is from the bible but also from satan servants themselves.
