Over the course of a week, I find that I have answered some of the same questions (worded differently) a few times. I seriously considered creating a FAQs page on my website however, I think that some of the answers need to be expounded upon and there is no simple way to package them into a nice, neat and tidy webpage that would not look like an encyclopedia page. In the interest of keeping my website “user-friendly” and providing useful information without going into long-winded dissertations, I will simply archive questions I receive and the answer I supply. Then, from time to time, I will post them for my readers.
This will be my first installment so “Here we go…..!”
Question #1: What type of Satanism do you practice?
Answer #1: At the risk of painting myself into a corner, I must say I am closest to Theistic Satanism than any other form however, I do not claim to be a Theistic Satanist. I acknowledge Satan and Demons are real and our lives as followers are measured according to the service we provide to the Master of the World. Every follower has to decide what is right for them.
Question #2: How long have you studied Satanism?
Answer #2: I have followed the Left Hand Path for over 25 years and I am happy with my progression as a Magus and Spiritual Teacher. I enjoy what I do and derive a great deal of satisfaction by helping others discover a world where neither guilt nor hypocrisy are used as tools to sell lies the others. Satanism is an open and HONEST path that leads each follower to their own version of satisfaction, self-fulfillment and happiness. I never experienced such peace and stability in my life and emotions while part of the Xian congregation.
Question #3: Do you sacrifice animals and drink their blood?
Answer #3: I suppose this question will always be asked since the Xian church would have everyone believe it to recruit them into their congregation. No, we do not torture, kill or drink the blood of any animals. We do practice sacrifice rituals but they are performed by “proxy“…..we use an inanimate object as the focus of the ritual so only the person intended will be harmed (who should be harmed). This is a basic magical operation.
Question #4: Do you provide guidance to those who ask?
Answer #4: Yes, I am happy to provide answers to questions and assist those searching for the truth. I ask for one thing before you ask a question; “Do your research and be ready to discuss the matter intelligently before you contact me”. The basic information about Satanism is readily available from many sources including my books. I do not have the time to explain “Satanism” to someone who is either too lazy to research or too cheap to buy a book. Satan helps those who are willing to invest in their knowledge and spiritual growth. I will not write a 5 page email explaining Satanism. My books provide those answers and much more.
Question #5: Do I have to join a coven to practice Satanism?
Answer #5: No, there is no requirement to attend any type of meeting or ritual to practice Satanism. Some followers have never been in a coven nor performed rituals with anyone else. Some people prefer the seclusion of being totally alone during magical workings. Satanism is individual and it is up to the person to decide what is right for them. Many followers have their sanctum or altars in their homes and never join a group.
I hope these answers help those who are considering Satanism. Feel free to contact me with any questions (after you have done your research) and I will provide as much direction as possible.
