Dear Yog,

I didn’t exactly think my first question/answer on this newly site would be about Satan, but I will try my best to answer your questions.

First of all, you must always remember to keep an open-mind. “Jesus sucks” is just your opinion because like many people, the concept and the Christian religion has been “drilled” into their heads for probably most of your life. So just remember not to look-down on other people’s religion if you want them to be open to yours.

Second, Satan is both good and bad – depending on which side you’re looking at him from. In the Christian, Islam and Judaism religion, Satan is considered bad and evil. Though they are not the only world religions that believe in a devil.

Satanism has two basic, main forms: one, as a Satanic religion – a group that is unrelated to any other religion or faith, whose members feel free to satisfy their urges responsibly, show kindness to their friends, and attack their enemies. The largest Satanic organization in North America is the Church of Satan.

The second form is what is called Theistic Satanists (or devil worshipers). They worship the Christian Satan as an actual deity/god.

There is no “real” definition of Satanism. It is not a real religion, or faith, but just a popular phenomenon that happened to expand and gain many members into it’s beliefs and ways. Why are you attracted to Satan? I really don’t know. Perhaps because, like you said “Jesus sucks,” that you are trying to find a way out of the Christian religion and go completely against it by being attracted to one of Christian’s greatest sins; to worship the devil himself.

But there could be many reasons why you are attracted to and comfortable towards the idea os Satanism. Only you can truly find the answer. All you need is to guide yourself and try to discover your inner beliefs. Try reading and researching other religions and faiths. See what they say about the devil and Satan. Maybe it’s not Satan you’re trying to find, but finding a way out of Christianity into a religion/faith that you are more comfortable with.

What is Paganism? Paganism is an ancient, earth-based, natural religion. Pagans believe in the power of mother nature and the universe. Many Pagans believe in many gods and goddesses, or just one god and goddess. The neo-pagan religion of Wicca has several different traditions, including Alexandrian Wicca, Eclectic Wicca, Seax-Wica, Gardnerian Wicca, Dianic Wicca, and many more! Paganism does not believe in the Christian devil or Satan.

Only you can figure out what’s best and what’s right. There is no right or wrong religion in the world. Everyone’s own religion is their right religion. Nothing is set in stone, nothing is right, nothing is wrong. Man has made every religion, every bible, and every religious scripture. It is up to you to decide on what it is that you believe in, if anything at all. This decision won’t happen over-night or right away – it may take days, weeks, months or years. There are people that soul-search for an entire lifetime before they find the “right path” for themselves.

I hope this has helped you and answered your questions.

Blessed Be,

Sage
