For most people, the concept of Satanism is something limited to television shows and movies. The concept of worshiping Satan, which under Christian doctrine eternally condemns one to hell, is much too frightening and dangerous for the average person. However, there is an increasing interest in Satan and Satanism in modern society, beginning with a revival of Satanic interest in the 1960s and continuing into the modern era.
Tenets of the Satanist Philosophy
The primary reason for this is that the key tenet of Satanism is worship of the self and emphasis on self-gratification, self-indulgence and self-satisfaction. While the most visible example of this is the orgy of sex and gratification epitomized in the Black Mass, true Satanists indulge themselves primarily in more traditional ways of seeking pleasure and gratification. From masturbation and drug use to excessive food and drink, the goal of a sincere Satanist is to live as a hedonist, indulging in pleasures of the flesh while eschewing spiritual development.
A central tenet of the Satanist philosophy is that preparation for the afterlife is futile, and that no effort should be made to atone for bad deeds or to abstain from short-lived pleasures.
Conducting Black Masses
Many people think that Satanists are cannibals who indulge in human sacrifice and other such black acts, however, no current research backs up this fact. While Satanists conduct Black Masses, these are generally demonstrations of a rejection of traditional Christian values, including the desecration or destruction of Christian iconography and the deliberate violation of Christian moral codes.
Black Masses are generally conducted in the homes of Satanists and are a combination of neo-Pagan rituals, the desecration and mockery of traditional Christian ceremonies and self-indulgence. Because the ceremonies are private and small-scale, they can be conducted in apartments, modular homes or even impromptu setups in forests or other remote locations where the participants are unlikely to be observed.
Satanism influences Modern Culture
The primary ways in which Satanism influences modern culture are through the entertainment industry. The over-the-top indulgence culture of modern rock music and film meshes well with Satanism and many musicians and actors have dabbled with Satanism or become converts. This may be reflected in their work by the use of Satanic imagery or iconography, however it is most often reflected in a desire to push forth self-indulgence over restraint or good moral choice. Glorifying drug use, mindless sex or gluttony are the most common expressions of Satanism.

An obsession with darkness, depression and death is also common, since Satanists believe that the current life is the only one worth living and that preparation for the afterlife is futile. Additionally, there is a strong emphasis on the now, from the collection of vast quantities of wealth to a refusal to share said wealth, which is a central tenet of Christianity. Satanism is most easily spotted by the glorification of greed, and most easily avoided by eschewing entertainment and businesses which glorify greed, hedonism and temporary pleasures.

WHERE CAN I FIND THESE BLACK MASSES? iS THERE A CODE WORD OR SOMTHING?
Satan’s meeting was quite good but I felt interview with satan to be not serious enough. You have a goodlooking, appealing, humourious young man being lightly interviewed. I think the full reality of following satan was quite lost in this. I don’t think this interview will have the desired impact on those who are not yet fully grounded.

I wrote a post warning people that demons and demonic activities are real. Another major play of the devil is to make people think it is just all human psychology.
Despite the wickedness of dark forces, Scripture reveals that power has been given to the saints to exert over satan’s forces.
Through the Name of Jesus we have power to triumph over demonic forces.
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you” Luke 10:19
CONFIRMATION OF AN ONGOING WAR
(For A Worldwide Eucharistic Revolution)
Confirmed by the recent southern Irish referendum relating to an aspect of the ‘gay’ concept HUMANITY especially Christians must pursue and express the truth in relation to our creation by God. I have friends who are ‘gay’ but they do not pursue a so called ‘marriage’ with each other nor participate in sexual activity.In fact there are those who are gay and do not have religious beliefs who are strongly opposed to ‘gay unions’. Which some of them claim to be purely a source of mutual sexual depravity. An activity which has risen within humanity since creation occurred because of satanic influence. A part of satan’s continuing offensive against God!
In the world there are many influenced by satanic activity, including myself which I strongly oppose with the grace of God, and in the gay community there are those influenced without having knowledge of that influence.And many of the latter have become influenced by the secular and atheistic satanic world wide media of communications.Victims of evil without knowing it! Evil which caused Jesus who claimed to be equal with our God to become man and be crucified in the war against the Devil.
As the Christian Bible confirms marriage is that between a male and a female.Those who argue otherwise are victims of the ‘lord of lies’ who obviously was very active in the southern Irish referendum to the extreme extent of the manipulation of the concept of ‘equal rights’.
