Theistic Satanism, on a first reading, appears to be the direct opposite of LaVey Satanism, in that followers generally believe in the person of Satan, His Demons, and the realm of Hell as existent in the world outside of oneself.
Theistic Satanism dates back to pre-history, and in that sense predates Christianity by many thousands of years.
Traditionally the knowledge of these entities, and the powers they can be called upon to deliver to humanity, were transmitted, through the mystery schools of antiquity, only to those who were deemed worthy of receipt of such knowledge.
This tradition has continued through to modern times. This occulted, or hidden, knowledge, is retained only by a few select organizations and family bloodlines.
This knowledge is therefore not available to the general population, and what knowledge is available, is deliberately obscure and obfuscated.
The famous 20th Century occultist, Alistair Crowley, was particularly well known for writing in a way to confuse: retaining the real information for his own, carefully selected, initiates.
This makes finding the truth in the published Satanic and occult material particularly problematic.
Over the years I have been lucky to find some of these men, and they have done me, and the gay Satanic community, a great service by sharing their knowledge with us.
As a community we owe these men a deep and ongoing debt of gratitude.
Theistic Satanism and Sexuality.
Gay and bisexual men need to connect with each other in order to fully explore the sexual power of theistic Satanism.
