The Nine Satanic Sins
For years, people have asked Church of Satan representatives, "Well, okay -- your
philosophy is based on indulgence of human instincts but do have any sins like other
religions?" Our answer has always been "No." But the time has come to amend that
response. We have grown steadily over the past 21 years and find that it is
appropriate to have some clearer guidelines on, not only what we strive for, but also
what we work to avoid -- what we disapprove of. The difference is where other
religions develop sins that people can't avoid, we consider a number of things
"sinful" that people could avoid if they worked a little.
1) Stupidity--The top of the list for Satanic Sins. The Cardinal Sin of Satanism. It's
too bad that stupidity isn't painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives
increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are
told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only
acceptable but laudable. Satanists must learn to see through the tricks and cannot
afford to be stupid.
2) Preteniousness--Empty posturing can be most irritating and isn't applying the
cardinal rules of Lesser Magic. On equal footing with stupidity for what keeps the
money in circulation these days. Everyone's made to feel like a big shot, whether
they can come up with the goods or not.
3) Solipsism--can be very dangerous for Satanists. Projecting your reactions,
responses, and sensibilities onto someone else who is probably far less attuned that
you are. It is the mistake of expecting people to give you the same consideration,
courtesy, and respect that you naturally give them. They won't. Instead Satanists
must strive to apply the dictum of "Do unto others as they do onto you." It's work
for most of us and requires constant vigilance lest you slip into a comfortable illusion
of everyone being like you. As has been said, certain utopias would be ideal in a
nation of philosophers, but unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, from a
Machiavellian viewpoint) we are from that point.
4) Self-Deciet--It's in the Nine Satanic Statement but deserves to be repeated here.
Another cardinal sin. We must not pay homage to any of the sacred cows presented
to us, including the roles we are expected to play ourselves. The only time
self-deceit should be entered is when it is fun, and with awareness. But then, it's not
5) Herd Conformity--That's obvious from a Satanic stance. It's all right to conform
to a person's wishes, if it ultimately benefits you. But only fools follow along with the
herd, letting an impersonal entity dictate to you. The key is to choose a master
wisely instead of being enslaved by the whims of many.
6) Lack of Perspective--Again, this one can lead to alot of pain for a Satanist. You
must never lose sight of who and what you are, and what a threat you can be, by
your very existence. We are making history right now, everyday. Always keep the
wider historical and social picture in mind. That is an important key to both Lesser
and Greater Magic. See the patterns and fit the things together as you want the
pieces to fall into place. So not be swayed herd constraints--know that you are
working on another level entirely from the rest of the world.
7) Forgetfulness of Past Orthodoxies--Be aware that this one of the keys to
brainwashing people into accepting something as "new" and "different", when in
reality it's something that was once widely accepted but is now presented in a new
package. We are expected to rave about the genius of the "creator" and forget the
original. This makes for a disposable society.
8) Conterproductive Pride--The first word is important. Pride is great up to the
point you begin to throw out the baby with the bathwater. The rule of Satanism is if
it works for you, great. When it stops working for you, when you've painted
yourself into a corner and the only way out is to say, "I'm sorry, I made a mistake, I
wish we could compromise somehow," then do it
9) Lack of Aesthetics--This is the physical application of the Balance Factor. It is
important in Lesser Magic and should be cultivated. It is obvious that no one can
collect any money off it most of the tome so it si discouraged in a consumer society,
but is an essential Satanic tool and must be applied for magical effectiveness. It's not
what's supposed to be pleasing--it's what is. Aesthetics is a highly personal thing,
reflective of one's own nature, but there are universally pleasing and harmonious
configurations that should not be denied.
The Nine Satanic Statements as written in the Satanic Bible by Anton
1) Satan represents indulgence, instead of abstinence!
2) Satan represents vital existence, instead of spiritual pipe dreams!
3) Satan represents undefiled wisdom, instead of hypocritical self-deceit!
4) Satan represents kindness th those who deserve it, instead of love wasted on ingrates!
5) Satan represents vengeance, instead of turning the other cheek!
6) Satan represents responsibility to the responsible, instead of concern for psychic
7) Satan represents man as just another animal,sometimes better, more often worse than
those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his "divine spiritual and intellectual
development," has become the most vicious animal of all!
8) Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they lead to physical, mental, or emotional
9) Satan has been the best friend the church has ever had, as he has kept it in business all
Pentagonal Revisionism: A Five Point Program
In recent years, we've wasted far too much time explaining that Satanism has
nothing to do with kidnapping, drug abuse, child molestation, animal or child
sacrifice, or any number of other acts that idiots, hysterics or opportunists would
like to credit us with. Satanism is life-loving, rational philosophy that millions of
people adhere to. Now we're ready for something that goes quite a few steps
beyond just explaining our principles. Every revisionist movement needs a set of
goals -- guidelines that are clear, concrete, and that will effect significant changes.
The following Five-Point Program reflects attitudes which allow others to decide
whether they wish to align themselves with Satanism or not. Each is necessary for
Satanic change to take place. When asked what we're "doing", here's the answer:
1) Stratification--The point on which all the others ultimately rest. There can be no
more myth of "equality" for all--it only translates to "mediocrity" and supports the
weak at the expense to the strong. Water must be allowed to seek its own level
without interference from apologists for incompetence. No one should be protected
from the effects of his own stupidity.
2) Strict taxation of all churches--If churches were taxed for all their income and
property, they'd crumble overnight of their own obsolescence, and the National
Debt would be wiped out as quickly. The productive, the creative, the resourceful
should be subsidized. So long as the useless and incompetent are getting paid, they
should be heavily taxed.
3) No tolerance for religious beliefs secularized and incorporated into law and order
issues--to re-establish "Lex Talionis" would require a complete overturning of the
present in-justice system based on Judeo-Christian ideals, where the
victim/defender has been made the criminal. Amnesty should be considered for
anyone in prison because of his alleged "influence" upon the actual perpetrator of the
crime. Everyone is influenced in what he or she does. Scapegoating has become a
way of life, a means of survival for the unfit. As an extension of the Judeo-Christian
cop-out of blaming the Devil for everything, criminals can gain leniency, even praise,
by placing the blame on a convenient villain. Following the Satanic creed of
"Responsibility to the responsible," in a Satanic society, everyone must experience
the consequences of his own acitons--for good or ill.
4) Development and production of artificial human companions--The forbidden
industry. An economic "godsend" which will allow everyone "power" over someone
else. Polite, sophisticated, technologically feasible slavery. And the most profitable
industry since T.V. and the computer.
5) The opportunity for anyone to live within a total environment of his or her choice,
with mandatory adherence to the aesthetic and behavioral standards of the
same--Privatly owned and controlled environments as an alternative to
homogenized and polyglot ones. The freedom to insularize oneself within a social
milieu of personal well-being. An opportunity to feel, see, and hear that which is
most aesthetically pleasing, without interference from those who would pollute or
detract from that option.
This is the encapsulated version of the current thrust of Satanic advocacy. So when
someone asks you, "Well, what do Satanists do?", you will be qualified to tell them.
The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth
1)Do not give opinion or advice unless you are asked.
2)Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
3)When in another's lair,show him respect or else do not go there.
4)If a guest in your lair annoys you,treat him cruelly and without mercy.
5)Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
6)Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he
cries out to be relieved.
7)Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If
you deny the power of
magic after having called upon it with success,you will loose all you have obtained.
8)Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
9)Do not harm little children.
10)Do not kill non-human animals unless attacked or for your food.
11)When walking in open territory,bother no one. If someone bothers you,ask him to stop. If he
does not stop,destroy him.
