God is Satan
And why not? God is also Allah. God is an entity that we can have a relationship with and given that God us the creator of all things including people and by default all languages – God could be called whatever we most likely connect with in an emotional way. So can you imagine God being fussy about what name I use to connect with Him? I mean I’m God’s creation so it would be contradictory to be fussy about that considering She had a hand in the creation of my personality. But happy to say that a contradictory entity isn’t God, so God can’t be concerned about His name.
The truth is we can build a strong connection with others and never know their name. Because a connection is not built on the condition of knowing someone’s name, that’s immaterial to the connection. The connection is based on finding common ground, in other words finding an emotional harmony with that person. That’s the vital thing in finding a connection to anyone really and the same must be said with God or if you prefer Satan.
Over the years I read through many websites about Satan and what many wrote about the subject made a lot of sense, in fact there’s a lot that doesn’t steer far from my understanding of God currently.
(if you find this difficult try replacing the name Satan with God and see how it sounds)
“True Satanism is about elevating and empowering humanity which was our True Creator (Satan’s) original intention.
We know Satan/Lucifer as a real being.
We know Satan to be the True Father and Creator God of humanity.
We work directly with Satan. We believe each and every person who is willing and respectful can have a personal relationship with Satan. There are no mediators in Spiritual Satanism; the Ministry is here only for guidance and support.
Spiritual Satanism is a life loving religion. Satan accepts us as we are, but guides us to advance ourselves to where we evolve to a higher level. Spiritual Satanists are free to live their lives as they choose- responsibility to the responsible. We live by natural law and encourage everyone to develop themselves to their fullest extent.
We know we “save” our own souls as opposed to claims of the Nazarene saving anyone. Satanism is based upon the true transformation of the soul…”
While I don’t agree with everything on the website, the core values in my opinion aren’t different to mine. Probably in the above, while I agree that it’s not Jesus’ responsibility or anyone’s for that matter besides myself to “save” my soul, I don’t know anywhere where it was claimed by Jesus himself to be the saviour of others souls. That was a creation by priests to explain the crucifixion as part of God’s plan (as AJ once mentioned – will add the link later on)
It’s an interesting side note which I discovered recently that Seth who is 2nd after Adam on the bloodline of Jesus is also considered to be the same as the Egyptian Set who many see as one of the earliest archetypes of Satan / Lucifer. It was God who as the story goes made Seth as the replacement of Abel (killed by Cain). In fact, before the male only God (Jehovah) was worshiped by the Jews, God who had both male and female attributes was worshiped by them. The female was dropped and so this aspect (the feminine side of God) was pushed into the shadows (by us). It’s likely this that gave rise to the apparent dark side (or light side) of divinity (Satan / Lucifer) where in fact it’s really a reflection of the dark side of ourselves. But all that couldn’t have any affect on God having a feminine side – it was really our problem if you will. So if we really are looking for the true Satan, we’d find God and vice versa. I’m sure that would be too much to swallow for many on both sides who are emotionally invested in being on a ‘side’ to begin with.
On that, it’s interesting too that an early Hebrew sect the Sethians saw God as both male and female but believed in a rather convoluted way that God didn’t create the material universe but rather it was an entity called the Demiurge who was mistakenly created by one of God’s female angels and was hidden from God for this reason. So this entity who is likened to a manual laborer made the material universe as the best representation of heaven as possible because he / she wasn’t supposed to exist or let alone occupy the heavens.
It’s sounds to me like an elaborate justification to make up for the emotional loss of God’s femininity, while still considering God as wholly male as well as God’s human constructed antithesis – the devil who is also male. It reminds me of a child’s story constructed in a way to avoid the perceived punishment for taking personal responsibility. In this case personal responsibility for the rejection of the feminine side of God which is also and more importantly a reflection of the rejection of our own femininity and all the qualities in ourselves that the feminine side represents. Often because we feel rejected ourselves by our own mothers and fathers we find the idea of being in alliance with the rejected aspect of God as a source of alleviation (for our core feelings of rejection). But considering that a loving Creator who from a perspective of love would desire us to free ourselves from our own emotional restraints, this same Creator would not build an ‘alliance’ with us that is based on us holding on to our own restraints (our causal emotions).
God doesn’t build alliances with us.
Interestedly all the mystery / esoteric / occultist based spiritual / religious movements (Eleusis, Gnostic, Cabala, Satanisim etc.) from this standpoint can be seen to be spawned by a deep emotional yearning to connect with the lost and hidden feminine side of God. The mystery, the hidden meaning, the secret is that we made it that way – hidden.
Does it make sense that God would want to hide from us?
To be honest though, concerning how we connect with God, its not farfetched if you believe there is an afterlife to see that spirits (dead humans) will call themselves God or Satan or whatever will work on us best to get from us living people whatever it is they’re looking for.
The real God can’t be looking to get anything from us and if you feel He / She is then it’s a good sign we are being deceived by a dead human. Real love doesn’t require the object of that love to do anything to earn that love in the first place. So why would God require things from us? Why would she create us only to expect something in return? That’s what we often do, so attributing this to God is creating a construct, an anthropomophic God to suit our own denials.
God does not require anything from us in return for Her love. She loves us as we are right now in our present condition, no more or no less than she did before or she ever will. That love is complete and abundant. It’s really up to us then to accept it or not.
So its important, in my opinion not what we call God, but whether we are allowing ourselves to be deceived while we believe we connect with God or Satan or Allah or the Source, the Universe etc.
