The Heresy of “Modern Satanism”

The notion of Satanism as an organized religion only entered the modern mind with the antics of Anton Szandor Lavey and his “Church of Satan” in the 1960s. Fittingly for his background as a circus performer and amateur psychologist, Lavey turned Satanism into a media circus, where ritual and black magick was nothing more than “psychodrama”, and an actual being called “Satan” did not even exist. Thus began the great heresy called “Modern Satanism” or “Atheistic Satanism”, which subverted traditional Satanism by removing its whole metaphysical basis – the belief in Satan. In its place, Lavey offered a hodgepodge of modern secular ideas borrowed from the likes of Ayn Rand, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ragnar Redbeard and P.T. Barnum. If the essence of the Satanic is moral and cultural inversion, then Lavey's Satanism was indeed Satanic, for it did invert the values of traditional Satanism, while at the same time turning the New Age hippie ethos of that era on its head. But after Lavey,...

The Many Masks of the Devil

“There is but one Black Master though men calle hym Sathanas & Beelzebub & Apolleon & Ahriman & Malik Tous... Ye abysse yawns & ye debt is to paye. Ye light fayles, ye shadows gather. There is no god but evil; no lite but darkness; no hope but doom—” —Robert E.

This god has gone by many names down through man's history in different lands: Set, Typhon, Baal, Ahriman, Satan, Lucifer, Kali, Cernunnos, Chernobog, Supay, Tezcatlipoca, etc. – but all of these are just deific masks of the one Dark Lord, whom we call Diabolus – the Devil. One of our tasks as a Temple is to reclaim these many diabolic masks and memes from those who have appropriated them for their own misguided agendas. We shall bring them together under one banner for the purpose of propagating a true...

Sir Baphomet

“I am Sir Baphomet” I would like to say that I first came across Lord Hellstrom “the Black Sun Master”, through another friend and was attracted to his personal power and intellect, which is evident in his writings and sermons that can be found at the website known as Order of the Black Sun. He has given me the name “Sir Baphomet” and instructed me to teach you and others the art of dark sex magic, that can be used to pursue all types of sexual desires, such as finding an ideal sexual mate(s), slave, or master. And I must say, just before I met Lord Hellstrom, I was having problems with my second Chakra in that I was experiencing pain in this area for many years. I have sought out help from numerous Naturopathic doctors, Chinese and Oriental medical practitioners, Curanderos, and other forms of healing magic rituals, to include Yoga and Rajneesh meditation. But nothing came close to curing...
