"It is okay to be at a place of struggle. Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then. In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress. The only one who doesn’t struggle is the one who doesn’t grow. So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign — and celebrate your struggle."
Okay time for a rant. This post is really pissing me off and here’s why.
1. No where in the Bible does it say God “hates fags” the entire message of the Bible is love. That’s the core message and anyone who says otherwise hasn’t read it.
2, “worship us hardcore or you go to hell” is just bullshit. All you need for eternal love is to accept Jesus as your saviour you don’t need to go to church or do any rituals if you don’t want to but you sure as hell can if that’s your thing.
3. “you better love everyone around you and God a lot,” the message of the Bible is love as I said early, so you’re expected to try to live your life in love. (could you imagine the amount of problems this would solve if everyone lived like that?!) but God knows you’re not perfect, He knows you can’t but He just wants you to try.
4. Respecting people is a good thing. Again it’s the same principle as number three.
Satanism is dark shit. All this light fluffy stuff you see floating around tumblr is the gateway stuff. It’s to draw you in. My mom has a friend that was raised within a Satanist group. She was raped on an alter as a sacrifice by a priest in front of the entire church several times; her and several other children. She was bled for Satanic blood rituals as a child. Her childhood was stolen from her and she was traumatized. She was lucky to escape.
Don’t get me wrong guys, I love Supernatural. I just know what’s fictional and whats not. I can love God and thoroughly enjoy the show too.
So just please, please stop with this post and others like it, because it makes me sick to my stomach every time I see them. both religions are being horribly misrepresented.
HOT DAMN THANK YOU
Shit like this really pisses me off. Don’t just scroll past it, read it if you still think Satanism is all hearts and Lucifer and rainbows.
Stop. Shaming. My. Religion.
(Please read the whole thing)
yo there’s a difference between LaVeyan Satanism and traditional Satanism. LaVeyan Satanists believe in the basic principles and beliefs like the ones in the photo, and it’s what almost anybody nowadays is referring to when they say “Satanism.” They are atheists who don’t believe in blood rituals or the other nasty things OP mentioned. Additionally, it has nothing to do with Supernatural and claiming that it does is really ignorant.
Now, Christianity has many sects. It’s not the majority that believes you are saved by faith alone. That belief came in with Martin Luther in the sixteenth century, i.e. 1500 years after Christianity originated. I’m not entirely sure what groups other than Lutherans hold that belief, but I do know that at least Catholics - a Christian group with 1.2 BILLION members worldwide - do not believe in salvation by faith alone. They believe that you can’t go to heaven without regular worship and confession.
Catholics also believe that homosexuality dooms you to an eternity in hell. Again, 1.2 billion is a very large number of people, and there are plenty of other people who use their Christianity as an excuse for homophobia.
There are so many different sects of Christianity because people have had so many different, varying beliefs and interpretations of the Bible. The post in the photo is regarding beliefs that are held by millions and millions of Christians, even if they aren’t held by you personally. Your horror story has no reflection on LaVeyan Satanism, which is simply a belief system.
You’re making blanket statements that don’t have a lot of basis in fact. Neither religion is being horribly misrepresented by the photo post, and it’s not “shaming” a religion to criticize it. There are plenty of things wrong with Christianity as an institution and it’s very egotistical of you to think otherwise.
You want Satanists to stop shaming your religion? Maybe you should stop shaming theirs.
