Satanic Temple spokeswoman Jex Blackmore has stated that the Satan is not an actual or personal being and that thus, told Christians, “Don’t waste your prayers on us.”
Within my article TIME magazine – Evolution of Modern Satanism in the US:
…some Satanists claim that they do not believe that Satan is a personal being and some Luciferians claim that he is yet, both are devil worshippers by any other name.
Jex Blackmore noted:
I cannot speak for all satanists. There are many different understandings of satanism and satanic philosophy. That being said, satanism stands for individual sovereignty in the face of tyranny, and the pursuit of knowledge even when that knowledge is dangerous. We believe in the power of individual will, not the collective consciousness of the mindless masses.
Yet, they believe in the power of individual and not the mindless masses…which is probably why they all look exactly the same.
Of course, as I noted in Miranda Barbour: is she a satanist and are her murders satanic crimes?, when Anton LaVey’s girlfriend Jayne Mansfield’s son was mauled by a lion (at Jungleland, a private zoo), LaVey and fellow Satanists actually invoked the healing help of their “Brother Satan” as a personal being with the ability intercede for them.
In fact, Jex Blackmore’s very own Satanic Temple unveiling of the Baphomet statue required signing a contract whereby the person sold their soul to the Satan. So they sell their soul to the Satan as a ritual aspect of unveiling their, literal, idol. Well, Blackmore explains that away, wink wink nudge nudge, claiming that it was merely a security protocol. May I recommend that they try an eternal security protocol and turn to Jesus.
Just as is the case with Atheism, Satanism is an anti-Christian support group; for examples, see: What do satanism and atheism have in common?
Jex Blackmore stated:
I became a satanist after my experience within the church, learning that what’s natural was often condoned as “sinful” or “satanic.” I got involved with the temple after interviewing Lucien (Greaves) about the temple right after they announced the formation of the organization…
To those Christians whose minds are enslaved by biblical mythology we say: Don’t waste your prayers on us.
It is interesting that she specifies that, that which is “natural was often condoned as ‘sinful’ or ‘satanic’”—whatever that means. Firstly, since YHVH is the creator it is YHVH who determines that which is “natural” and that which is not.
Of interest in this regard may be Romans 1 which states:
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
In short, Jex wanted to sin and rather than keeping from sinning, she chose sin and rejected YHVH.
Let us review: the wrath of God is revealed from heaven because that which may be known of God is manifest in them so that they are without excuse. Yet, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Thus, they became Satanists.
Thinking that they are no oh so very enlightened (actually endarkened), they not go about professing themselves to be wise yet, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things—and a goat headed hermaphrodite which they erected as an idol.
Thus, God also gave them up to the point that they change the natural for the unnatural. They now think via a reprobate mind and are without natural affection.
Do you see the foolishness of the proud reprobate mind when she refers to “those Christians whose minds are enslaved by biblical mythology”? The very same “mythology” upon which Satanism is based, by the way. Thus, “those Christians” to which she refers are they “whose minds are enslaved by biblical mythology” even though she has not a clue as to how “those Christians” came to hold to the Bible.
In her enslaved to sin mind, they are automatically enslaved in comparison to her embrace of sin. But that she states that we Christians should not “waste your prayers on us” means, of course, that Christians will do so even more that this is even more evidence of just how fallen into sin Satanists are: they need love and prayer.
