One of the delusions that will be cleared up at the outset of this post is the lie that leading Satanists do not believe in or truly worship the Devil. First of all it should be understood that Anton La Vey, the founder of the Church of Satan, viewed Satan as a true entity that he truly worshipped before his death. Anton La Vey deceived a lot of people who joined the Church of Satan by deliberately deceiving them into believing that “Satan only represented the repressed forces of nature and in fact was not a real entity.“
In Interviews with former Charles Manson family member Susan Atkins, whom is still in prison after being convicted of eight murders, Atkins blew the lid off of La Vey’s lies. As a former associate of Anton La Vey’s, who danced for him and spent personal time with him before joining the Manson family, she was privy to conversations with La Vey before he became popular. Atkins repeatedly said that La Vey promotes a watered down, palatable form of Satanism to the ignorant masses which he is deceiving. He presented the exact opposite to her & to his inner core of Satanists within the Church of Satan. Atkins stated the following:
“Anton told me that as a Satanist he did not believe in the God of the Bible& he refused to worship him. He made a conscious decision to worship Satan instead.”
La Vey was aware that few people were ignorant enough to truly turn their lives over to Satan, knowing that they would not only be allowing themselves to be controlled by the enemy of God but subsequently they would spend eternity suffering the torments of hell. La Vey therefore presented a seeker sensitive, user-friendly form of Satanism in the hope that it might appeal to the masses whom he was seeking to deceive. La Vey sought to put such a spin on Satanism as to present it as a kinder, more gentile form of Devil worship by claiming that Satan merely represents a force in nature. All of this was done to garner unwitting recruits.
For starters, one should never trust a Satanist. Satanists view lying as one of their highest virtues which is in complete contradiction to the tenants of true Christianity. La Vey & other Satanists serve the one whom Jesus repudiated as “The Father of Lies” (John 8:44). It would be just like the father of lies to cloak his religion in non-reality. Satan has long been about deception & has successfully deceived many recruits into believing that they are simply worshipping a symbol rather than a reality. Satan relishes in such ignorance!
Atkins testimony that La Vey was deliberately “duping” Satanists in the outer circle is corroborated by evidence from Le Vays own admissions. La Vey let his guard down when responding to other Satanists whom considered him “not extreme enough” by stating that, “If they were at all intelligent they would realize that there was only so much that he could say in public…I will not advance things in print which make my position untenable…How long would the Church of Satan have lasted if I had not appeased & outraged in just the right combination? It required a certain amount of discretion & diplomacy to balance the outrage.” (Lucifer Rising, pg. 133)
Purposeful deception is need among leading Satanists to enslave those who recruit as unscrupulous & unsuspecting pawns who feel more comfortable believing that Satan is a symbol for force. Few Satanists realize the evil intentions that permeate the inner core of Satanists & how they view lower initiates as mere puppets whom can be used & later discarded. Those within the higher echelon of the movement are often aware of the true nature of Satan & the demonic realm which they serve. Notwithstanding, they are often bound & blinded on another level because they have become addicted to the power that Satan has deceptively promised them.
Kenneth Anger, who was a co-founder of the Church of Satan along with Anton La Vey, used a similiar spin on Satanism. Mr. Anger stated in the 1960’s, in his film Lucifer Rising, that “Lucifer is the light of God, not the Devil“, this statement was taken from the jacket of the film. This delusion that Lucifer is really the God of Light & not Satan should not surprise us, fore God’s word warns us through the following passage, “And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” – 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
Years later, after Mr Anger had deceived multitudes of people into thinking they were worshipping the supposed “light god”, an entity that was not really Satan, he confessed that Lucifer had always been the historical Satan. However, this confession came far to late for the throngs of Satanists whom had been deceived & had long since passed into the service of the “dark lord”. It is far to late for those whom are now cursing the likes of Mr. Anger, Mr. La Vey & Satan from the depths of Hell.
It would appear that the musician Marilyn Manson is doing nothing more than playing the same mind game with his fans as did Mr. Anger & Mr. La Vey. Besides following the teachings of Mr. La Vey, Mr. Manson readily admits that, “I’ve taken a lot of my inspiration from Kenneth Anger.” Sadly, while the leaders of the movement are well aware of the genuinely dark nature of their treacherous master, the multitudes whom swell the ranks within their church are naively believing that they are part of some nature religion. They are taught that either a real Satan does not exist or that Hell will not be that hot. This of course is pure nonsense. Anton La Vey was severely deceived, as is clearly depicted through a statement which is contained within The Satanic Bible, “I will reign with Satan in Hell.” I am quite sure that Mr. La Vey now realizes the folly of his ways & in fact realizes that he was the most deceived of all.
The scriptures are quite clear that Hell was created as a place of torment for Satan & his angels (Matthew 25:40-43).
So even leaders within the Church of Satan, who are deliberately deceiving their initiates, are in fact being deceived themselves through the belief that they will attain some place of prestige when they reach Hell.
“Evil men & impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving & being deceived.” – 2 Timothy 3:13
Richard Ramirez, known as the Night Stalker, was deceived by Anton La Vey’s assertion, which is contained within the satanic bible, that denotes that Satanists could reign in Hell. Ramirez believed that his human sacrifices to Satan would earn him a place of rulership in Hell next to Jack the Ripper & other serial killers.
Further evidence of the actual system of belief of leading Satanists is represented through the assertions of Lieutenant Colonel Michael Aquino of the United States Army. Mr. Aquino was a leader within Mr. La Vey’s Church of Satan & was purported to be Mr. La Vey’s “second in command” before he broke off in order to begin his own satanic order which was called The Temple of Set. Mr. Aquino ended up taking several of Mr. La Vey’s followers with him. The Temple of Set would eventually attract the likes of Mr. La Vey’s daughter, Zeena La Vey. So rabid a Satanist is Aquino that he had the number 666 tattooed on his scalp. The Temple of Set proclaims that Set, another name for Satan, is a real entity & is a name for “the oldest known form of the prince of darkness.” Mr. Aquino believed that it was time for Satan to come out of the closet in all of his naked deformity. Mr. Aquino even took his more direct portrayal of Satanism to the television airways where he virtually admitted that Satan is a real entity & that many are still in the dark as to whom they are really worshipping, including millions of new agers. On the Oprah Winfrey Show, Mr. Aquino candidly admitted that his church was following the infernal being that orchestrated the initial rebellion against God, the creator of the universe. This assertion, verbatim, is as follows: “We believe that this quality [to oppose God’s natural order] in the human soul that makes it different from all other lifeforms…was deliberately inculcated in humanity in its distant evolutionary past by an active agency that is acting in defiance of the universal norm [God’s moral law]. & that agency has been caricatured as Lucifer, as Satan, & in the greatest antiquity by the ancient Egyptians as Set.” Mr. Aquino went on to describe how they believed that they as Satanists are now becoming Gods. This was at the heart of Satan’s initial rebellion. & now Mr. Aquino was parroting the essence of Satanism, which is a desire to usurp the true & living God’s authority & follow Satan into God realization. “We are not servants of some God,” declared Mr. Aquino, “We are our own gods!” Oprah Winfrey appeared to be surprised to find out that this was exactly what she believed as a new ager, failing to realize that the New Age movement was nothing more than and extension of Crowleyan Satanism which is just like Mr. Aquino’s Satanism. Mrs. Winfrey went on to ask Mr. Aquino the following, “Well, the way you explain this is the way a lot of people who are into metaphysics, the New Age movement & New Age thinking define their systems of belief. Are you saying that it’s the same?” Mr. Aquino, without skipping a beat said, “yes” to Mrs. Winfrey’s question, implying that New Agers & Satanists are walking the same path in the rebellion against God & in their quest to achieve god-hood as they follow in Satan’s footsteps. He only clarified that most New Agers are not aware that they have joined a satanic rebellion against God & that Satanist’s know what is going on. Mr. Aquino stated the following, “Yes, except that I would say we [Satanists] have a more precise grasp…we would say that we understand whats actually happening a little better than many New Agers.” After bringing Satan out of the closet The Temple of Set failed to enlist the large amount of recruits they apparently had hoped for. In their failure to acquire more recruits they changed their method of evangelism & returned to a formula more in keeping with that of the Church of Satan. Today the Temple of Set like the Church of Satan espouses a more palatable, seeker sensitive form of Satanism so as not to scare off potential recruits.
The result is that Satan is once again cloaked in ambiguity & the song remains the same as inner circle initiates continue deceiving outer circle initiates. Mrs. Winfrey was surprised that Mr. Aquino, as a self-confessed Satanist, would try to deny the hard facts of the evil behind Satanism. When Mr. Aquino stated that they as Satanists have “nothing to do with evil,” she said, “It’s just difficult for me to understand that the devil is a good thing…that Satan isn’t evil which is the opposite of what everybody in this world has been taught…” Mrs. Winfrey went on the exclaim, “In every state of the nation authorities are investigating some form of what they call satanic activity…children are telling the same stories about infants being murdered before their eyes in strange devil rituals. The list of bizarre stories goes on & on.” Not surprisingly Mr. Aquino tried unsuccessfully at this point to put another spin on Satanism by claiming that they are not into such things. Even as leading Satanists like to hide the fact that they are truly worshipping Satan so it is that they seek to deny that Satanists sacrifice humans including children. The truth of the matter is that Aleister Crowley, whom Mr. Aquino acknowledges, had an incredible influence on Aquino & The Temple of Set, not only taught his followers to engage in child sacrifice but admitted to sacrificing scores of children himself. After Mr. Aquino made the false claim that Satanists do not really sacrifice children a law enforcement officer spoke up & stated, “To say that there are no bodies & that these [Satanists] are not committing crimes is the farthest thing from the truth…in every case that I’ve investigated, now exceeding well over 200, I have found this particular book.” The officer then proceeded to hold up a copy of the Satanic Bible.
In the Satanic Bible, Mr. La Vey, seeking to not advance thing in print which made his position untenable lest he found himself behind bars, stated that his followers were to commit human sacrifices by proxy, “We perform human sacrifices, by proxy you might say…the destruction of human beings who would, lets say, create an antagonistic situation towards us…in the form of a curse & hexes, not in actual blood rituals because certainly the destruction of a human being physically is illegal.” Note that the only reason La Vey concedes “that he is not publicly advocating actual physical human sacrifice is because it is against the law”, implying that if he could get away with it they would do it. In fact La Vey takes credit for the death of Jayne Mansfield & her boyfriend Lawyer Sam Brody, stating that it was a result of a ritual curse on Mr. Brody, & Ms. Mansfield happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Mr. La Vey also believed that he was responsible for the Manson family murders. Manson was heavily influenced by the Satanic cult known as The Process. The Process also acknowledged that Satan is a real entity. Their particularly twisted spin, in an effort to get unwitting recruits, was not to pretend Satan was not a true entity but to claim that Satan was actually a Jesus loving Devil. The Process claimed that they, Jesus & Satan, had reconciled & that all would work out well in the end for everyone including Satanists, because Jesus had supposedly forgiven the Devil. Ridiculous as this suggestion was it proved successful in garnering more than a few recruits. The bodies have piled up & the idea that Satanism is not behind the death of countless multitudes of innocent people is a lie only believed by the incredibly naive.
Manson was a confessed Satanist & was responsible for up to thirty-five murders if the admissions of his former followers are to be believed. Charles Manson, whom Marilyn Manson cites as one of his preeminent inspirations & a brilliant philosopher, has stated, “Jesus Christ is for real & so is that other guy [i.e. Satan].” Charles Manson knows that Satan, whom he serves, is a real entity & has been more candid than has his follower Marilyn Manson.
The Son of Sam, whom was a part of a Process coven, made up of 22 Satanists & connected to several other satanic covens also murdered several people under the direction of the coven. Richard Ramirez who followed the Satanic Bible & met with Anton La Vey before his Satanic killing spree killed twenty people. Ramirez even went so far as to torture his victims & made some “swear to Satan.” Between Manson, the Son of Sam & Richard Ramirez alone we have dozens of murders in the name of Satan. I have more than sufficiently made my case for those of you who will honestly look at the evidence. We have now seen evidence that the most influential & notorious Satanic leaders have had a campaign to deceive their devotees into becoming unwitting followers for Satan.
