Satanismus (Teil 1 2 Von): Was Glauben Satanisten?
Satanism (Part 1 of 2): What does Satanists worship?
Beschreibung: Eine kurze Übersicht über die verschiedenen Arten des Satanismus und deren Glaube.
What exactly is satanism? The Google dictionary defines it as: “The worship of Satan, which typically involves a mockery of Christian symbols and practices, upside down. The website wordnetweb.princeton.edu defines it as the belief and veneration of devils (especially Satan) and thefreedictionary.com adds that it is profound wickedness. Religious Tolerance, the Canadian website dedicated to explaining the diverse religious beliefs around the world, states that: „There may be dozens of different belief systems and practices called Satanism.“
Therefore, it is almost impossible to estimate how many Satanists there are in the world. Depending on the definition and which groups correspond to another definition, the total number of Satanists can range from a few thousand to millions or even more. In North America, estimates range from ten to twenty thousand Satanists from various belief systems and organizations. According to statistics, only 335 Canadians identified themselves as Satanists at the 1991 census. It is almost impossible to talk to them or to collect statistical evidence from any of these groups claiming to be practicing any kind of Satanism.
The Church of Satan, which Anton LaVey founded in 1967, generally consider himself to be strong atheists, agnostics or free thinkers, and membership numbers are kept secret. However, the Church of Satan is fairly open in its views and practices. They describe themselves as: “The first above-ground organization in history that is openly dedicated to accepting the true nature of man – that of a carnal beast that lives in a cosmos that is indifferent to its existence. For us, Satan is the symbol of pride, freedom and individualism. „
According to David Shankbone, who interviewed the highest priest in the church, Peter Gilmour: “LaVey’s teachings are based on individualism, self-satisfaction, and an ‚eye for an eye‘ morality, with influences from Friedrich Nietzsche and Ayn Rand; while his rituals and sorcery largely rely on occultists like Aleister Crowley. ” His article makes it fairly clear that members of the Church of Satan neither worship the devil or a Christian / Islamic idea of the devil, nor even believe in him. Her Satan has nothing to do with hell, demons, pitchforks, sadistic torments, selling souls, performing miracles, human sacrifice, cannibalism and deeply evil deeds.
A definition of Satanism is that: „Satanism is the total rejection of the spiritual nature of theistic religions, and the honest admission that we are only animals that have evolved like all other complex systems.“ On the other hand, what about the religious Satanism that has become the content of our nightmares and films? Does he exist? The Church of Satan publicly states that: “Satan respects and praises life. Children and animals are the purest expressions of this life force, and as such are considered sacred and precious …. ”Therefore, as mentioned above, no human sacrifice. The majority of Satanists simply follow a lifestyle that includes satanic statements and rules, while avoiding satanic sins.
Numerous authors, almost all conservative Christians, have described alleged satanic rituals. They almost always revolve around stolen religious symbols, black masses, upside down crosses or prayers read backwards. This is a pure invention that can be traced back to books from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, especially The Malleus Maleficarum (The Hammer of the Witches). In the 15th and 16th centuries, the Catholic Church theorized that the worship of Satan exists and is a massive threat. This has led to the burning of witches, which can also be called burning times or, alternatively, the Holocaust for women. Belief about Satanism turned into an imaginary religion that was the opposite of Christianity.
So far we have found that there is a religion known as Satanism and that most, if not all, of its followers are hedonistic atheists who intend to act according to their most basic desires. An anonymous writer once wrote that satanism is the religion of the American boardroom, but for the most part, it doesn’t involve strange or evil practices because most satanists simply practice a lifestyle that includes enjoyment and satisfaction. A very small number of individuals have created their own version of Satanism, which includes anti-Christian practices, from the large number of anti-satanic literature.
Where does this information leave the Muslims? As believers we understand that Satan exists and actively tries to move people away from God. He may or may not be involved in the satanic religion that claims to have no gods or to worship such a manifestation of evil. However, Satan’s work is clearly recognizable in a number of groups or categories of people who claim to worship him. These groups include psychopathic killers and serial killers trying to defend themselves with „the devil in me made me do it“ and abusive pedophiles who in various cases have used satanic attitudes to make the history of their victims seem untrustworthy . In England it was proven that in at least three cases where predators claimed
Some musicians pretend to be satanists to gain fame and bad reputation, and there is also a group known as satanic dabblers. Dilettantes are known to be rebellious, seek the attention of adolescents or young adults who, usually from unreliable and fictional sources, have created their own form of Satanism. They are often responsible for graffiti, graveyard damage and ritual killing of small animals. Both groups may pretend to be something they are not, but they live a life dangerously close to the abyss. A person who tries to worship the ancient god Seti or revive his worship also risks their minds, and in some cases their lives.
Satan, the devil, Lucifer, Seti or whatever you call him is not a power to be trivialized. He has an agenda, and in the next article we will look at how seemingly harmless behaviors can make a person commit the most dangerous of the great sins. The Church of Satan may be little more than an organized group in which members can engage, the behavior of which would otherwise frown, but how many members „actually deal with the devil“? Those who use the term satanism to hide their innate depravity may find that satan has led them to ruin on the collar.
Satanism (part 2 of 2): trading with the devil
عبادة الشيطان (الجزء 2 من 2): التعامل مع الشيطان
Description: How apparently harmless practices lead to very dangerous situations.
In 2004 the Minister of Justice of Cyprus warned of the dangers of occultism and neo-Satanism in European society. In 2010, six Russian satanists were arrested for the ritual sacrifice when they were found guilty of dismembering and eating various teenagers. Examples of evil and repression practices abound, but the majority of people, particularly in the West, tend to forget about Satan’s role in these scenarios.
The satanic Bible, written and published by Anton LaVey, is a collection of essays, observations, and rituals. It contains the core principles of the religion of Satanism and is considered the foundation of its philosophy and dogma. The nine satanic statements are little more than excuses for immoral, enjoyable behavior. For example: „Satan represents all of the so-called sins because they lead to physical, mental or emotional satisfaction.“ A believer would easily recognize the deception behind such statements. However, those who are not aware of God’s love for humanity may be tempted to follow their perverse guidelines. From the beginning of mankind, God sent prophets and messengers to reveal His love and to show the right path that humanity uses, however, humanity tends to fall victim to its own desires and desires. Satan is well aware of this and likes books like Anton LaVey’s Satanic Bible very much.
As we know, these modern Satanists have little resemblance to the myths created by the Catholic Church, but by following the nine satanic statements or gathering in groups to admire Satan and everything he stands for , to manifest, men and women open up to be completely overwhelmed or overcome by Satan himself. The satanic dabblers mentioned in the previous article also put themselves in a precarious situation.
Satan (the devil, Lucifer etc.) is a jinn, a creature of the invisible. He is in despair because he is denied God’s grace, and therefore he swears not to live in the depths of hell alone; he wants to take as many human beings as he can. God warns us in the Qur’an of Satan’s hostility. Satan is able to cheat, mislead and trick people, and is able to make sin look like a gate to paradise. Even if a person is cautious, it can easily be misled, and there is a danger in groups, cults, or religions that devote themselves to Satan or Satanism.
The people who take Satan as a friend or helper will soon realize that he will betray them and lead them to doom. Then it disappears completely; leaves her and rejoices in her misfortune. He encourages them to give up their decency and values, and even encourages them to commit crimes such as murder, theft, and pedophilia. People who experiment with Satan worship are particularly vulnerable to his wicked ways; Satan will lead them to the most terrible places, physically and emotionally, and then leave them.
We have found that Satanism exists in many forms. The most famous is the Church of Satan, there are also splinter groups that worship Satan to a certain extent. Believing in or practicing divination, communicating with the „dead“ and other such practices are tools of Satan and he enjoys it. They are Satan’s clever recruiting tools designed to lead many to the actual worship of Satan. Satan worship is usually fairly deceptive, or even marked, in Holywood movies; sometimes you don’t notice that a certain ritual is a satanic one! One should be particularly careful when things are called “back to nature” or “fun”. It might seem like fun
Satanism is really a war, and most of the time Satan wins because we, the modern people of the 21st century, have everything, but we have stopped believing in its existence, even to the extent that we use his name in public to gain publicity and fame. Oddly enough, many of these people take Satan as a helper or friend. They knowingly and unwittingly follow his footprints and accept his views, even though he is their first enemy who wants nothing less than to completely destroy them both in this life and in the next. How unreasonable it is to take your fiercest enemy as a friend. Many of these people are criminally insane or simply evil, others are simply gullible and uneducated, without the weapons to defend themselves.
But God did not leave us defenseless in this war. He has given us a lot of necessary information about our enemy. If we read and understand God’s warnings, we will easily see that Satanism is a deceptive trick performed by Satan himself and people with little or no reason. From the Quran and the authentic traditions of the Prophet Muhammad, God’s blessings and peace be upon him, we can gather the necessary information about Satan’s motives and methods. God has given us the means to protect ourselves, and thus the weapons, to face this never-ending war and to fight Satan and his cohorts.
