    Addressing our DeitySome Definitions....Tenants of Theistic Satanism by The Church of Theistic Satanism.Temples of Satan Founder Grand Magister Blackwood:

    For years people have written me asking if they are appropriate in addressing Satan as some of the

    following and I have decided to answer a few of these questions to provide a clearer understanding tothe Real Satanist.

    Our Father: Our Father, is a Christian Salutation, however it is acceptable if one believes that FatherSatan had a hand in much of creation, or has been a Father to man's understanding.Lets examine Father:

    Definitions of Father:

    a male parent (also used as a term of address to your father); "his father was born in Atlanta" forefather: the founder of a family; "keep the faith of our forefathers" `Father' is a term of address for priests in some churches (especially the Roman Catholic Church

    or the Orthodox Catholic Church); `Padre' is frequently used in the military a person who holds an important or distinguished position in some organization; "the tennis

    fathers ruled in her favor"; "the city fathers endorsed the proposal" God when considered as the first person in the Trinity; "hear our prayers, Heavenly Father" founder: a person who founds or establishes some institution; "George Washington is the father

    of his country" beget: make children; "Abraham begot Isaac"; "Men often father children but don't recognize

    them" don: the head of an organized crime family.

    So how do any of these fit Satan?

    It could be representative of of our founding, and we are the offspring thereof or because of him.

    Some other salutations that are often acceptable:

    Hail Satan:

    Definitions of Hail

    acclaim: praise vociferously; "The critics hailed the young pianist as a new Rubinstein" be a native of; "She hails from Kalamazoo" call for; "hail a cab" precipitation of ice pellets when there are strong rising air currents greet enthusiastically or joyfully many objects thrown forcefully through the air; "a hail of pebbles"; "a hail of bullets" precipitate as small ice particles; "It hailed for an hour.

    So we find Hail Satan to be greeting the deity enthusiastically.

    And of course we all know what Satan is so I will not ramble on, and next we find ourselves oftensaying Avete Satanas lets define the both of them.

    Definitions of Avete:

    Refers to Hello in Latin, so Hello Satan is that like Hello Kitty?

    Not really some use it in formal greetings of other Satanist's.

    Definitions ofsatanas:

    I often refer it to being a Soldier to Satan:

    Definitions ofsoldier:

    an enlisted man or woman who serves in an army; "the soldiers stood at attention" serve as a soldier in the military a wingless sterile ant or termite having a large head and powerful jaws adapted for defending

    the colonyNow some will say this is wrong but in Theistic Satanism, Satan requires an Army of people whounderstand his world.

    Sometimes people speak of following Satan.

    Definitions offollower:

    a person who accepts the leadership of another. someone who travels behind or pursues another.

    Faith is important to the Deity, I will here define a few more things.

    Definitions ofdeity:

    any supernatural being worshiped as controlling some part of the world or some aspect of life orwho is the personification of a force.

    I refer to the deity to avoid disrespecting other peoples deity, however as a Theistic Satanist we shouldreally not care because it's our deity the strongest deity and able to destroy the others at will.

    But enough!

    I will define a few other things Christians like to label and theirs.

    Definitions offaith:

    religion: a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny; "he lost

    his faith but not his morality" complete confidence in a person or plan etc; "he cherished the faith of a good woman"; "the

    doctor-patient relationship is based on trust" religion: an institution to express belief in a divine power; "he was raised in the Baptist

    religion"; "a member of his own faith contradicted him" loyalty or allegiance to a cause or a person; "keep the faith"; "they broke faith with their

    investors"

    Faith is not owned by Abrahamic Religions and for Modern Satanist's they will rail against those of uswho display Faith as they prefer to see things from a Atheistic Intent.

    Definitions ofreligion:

    a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny; "he lost his faithbut not his morality"

    an institution to express belief in a divine power; "he was raised in the Baptist religion"; "amember of his own faith contradicted him"

    Belief in a deity is similar in religions throughout the world and but Theistic Satanism requires someunderstanding and yet it prevails as the most powerful magic based religion on the planet, I personallyam glad people have tried to whittle down its tenants and have attempted to define it as something else,but here it is.

    Theism in the broadest sense is the belief in at least one deity. In a more specific sense, theism refers toa particular doctrine concerning the nature of a god and his relationship to the universe, being Theisticis the action thereof.

    Some things that are useful in its practice is the arts:

    The Art of Meditation:

    Definitions ofmeditation: continuous and profound contemplation or musing on a subject or series of subjects of a deep or

    abstruse nature; "the habit of meditation is the basis for all real knowledge" (religion) contemplation of spiritual matters (usually on religious or philosophical subjects).

    The Art of Invocation:

    Definitions ofinvocation:

    a prayer asking God's help as part of a religious service an incantation used in conjuring or summoning a devil conjuring: calling up a spirit or devil

    the act of appealing for help.The Art of Incantation:

    An incantation or incantations are the words spoken during a ritual, either a hymn or prayer invoking orpraising a deity, or in magic, occultism, witchcraft with the intention of casting a spell on an object or aperson. The term derives from Latin(incantare).

    The Art of Spell-Craft

    Definitions ofSpellcraft:

    Spellcraft is the ability to cast and work spells. It is often used to describe the rituals performedby witches, Wiccans, and Neo-pagans. Such instances of spellcraft can require the use of

    various gems, herbs, incense, candles, colours, meditation, chanting, astrology, and numerology.

    The Art of Ritual:

    entreaty: earnest or urgent request; "an entreaty to stop the fighting"; "an appeal for help"; "anappeal to the public to keep calm"

    a fixed text used in praying. someone who prays to a God.

    While I pray several times a day, I recommend those in Theistic Satanism to pray at least once a dayand thank Satan for many different things, including guidance, it is necessary to become Spiritual with

    Satan.Definitions ofspiritual:

    religious: concerned with sacred matters or religion or the church; "religious texts"; "a memberof a religious order"; "lords temporal and spiritual"; "spiritual leaders"; "spiritual songs"

    concerned with or affecting the spirit or soul; "a spiritual approach to life"; "spiritualfulfillment"; "spiritual values"; "unearthly love"

    lacking material body or form or substance; "spiritual beings"; "the vital transcendental soulbelonging to the spiritual realm"-Lewis Mumford

    a kind of religious song originated by Blacks in the southern United States apparitional: resembling or characteristic of a phantom; "a ghostly face at the window"; "a

    phantasmal presence in the room"; "spectral emanations"; "spiritual tappings at a seance"

    While people often think they are being spiritual they sometimes as not, I would have to contemplatebeing spiritual as an Art or The Art of Spirituality.

    This can stem from faith as well and could be formed from prayer and or ritual.

    Messages come clearly to those with Faith or Spirituality and slow for those not immersed in such.

    Now comes the age old question as to where does the Theistic Satanist's go when they die?

    After long hours of research I surmise that we are reborn over and over because we are comprised ofenergy, however some people do think we have past lives, but I have a theory while some seem to be

    precognitive of a past life, we cannot control where we go or who be return as, because our essencewhich is comprised of energy is uncontrollable at death.

    So we a merely a husk that contains an energy that can prosper or fail based on our level of Faith orSpirituality and the stronger we are the better chance we have to survive beyond our bodies.

    We should do as can while we are in our bodies and in order to work from beyond our bodies werequire a certain level of internal faith to push us path the throes of death and into our next lives servingSatan, while his plan may or may not be complete we do not move along like Lab Rats in someexperiment we move along as travelers and we chart our own futures by actions of Faith while ourenergy lives.

    One does not have to be rich or well to do to thrive around the deity, just have Faith he understands we

    all have a mission, a place and no matter how downtrodden you become you must rise up and realizethere is a better place and perhaps a better life somewhere in your future, so no matter how low youfeel you can never loose your faith.

    Hail Satanist's!Grand Magister Blackwood
