Bonjourno everyone!

I'm currently reading the Satanic Bible written by Anton Szandor LaVey and I thought I'd be fun to share some notes I made from the bible. So if you're interested keep reading. There will be another part since I haven't finished reading the book.

satan, satanist, and god image

P.40
-Anyone who thinks of Satan as evil should consider all the men, women, children and animals who have died because it was "God's Will". But if God is in complete control and as benign as He is supposed to be, why does He allow these things to happen?
-The Satanist, realizing that anything he gets is of his own doing, takes command of the situation instead of praying to God for it to happen. Positive thinking and positive action add up to results.
-Just as the Satanist does not pray to God for assistance, he does not pray for forgiveness for his sins. The Satanist knows that if praying does no good, confessing to another human being, accomplishes even less - and is degrading.

P.46
-A Satanist knows envy and greed are the motivating forces of ambition and without ambition, very little of any importance would be accomplished.
When you have overeaten (gluttony) to the point of obesity, another sin - pride - will motivate you to regain appearance that will renew your self-respect.
Anyone who buys an article of clothing for a purpose other than covering his body and protecting it from the elements is guilty of pride. Satanists often encounter scoffers who maintain labels that are not necessary to keep them warm and they are guilty of pride.
P.47
Being reluctant to get up in the morning is to be guilty of sloth, and if you lie in bed long enough you may find yourself committing yet another sin - lust.
In order to ensure the propagation of humanity, nature made lust the second most powerful instinct. Realizing this, the Christian Church made fornication the "Original Sin". Your very state of being is a result of sin - the ORIGINAL sin!
-The seven deadly sins of the Christian Church are greed, pride, envy, anger, gluttony, lust, and sloth.
The strongest instinct in every human being is self-preservation, which brings us to the last of the seven deadly sins - anger. A Satanist practices the motto, "If a man smite thee on one cheek, SMASH him on the other!"

P.50
-If a religion DOES preach the same things that it always has, but its followers practice nearly none of its teachings, why do continue to call themselves by the name given to the followers of the religion?
-If you do not believe in what your religion teaches, why continue to support a belief which is contradictionary with your feelings.
