-------The Nine Satanic Statements Pt.3------
Satanic statement number 3 reads: Satan represents undefiled wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit!
Satan represents undefiled wisdom? Let's see, Satan was once an angel known as Lucifer. He was the highest ranked angel of all. He was allowed to govern over much. He had a problem though. He wasn't satisfied with what he had. He wanted more. He wanted to be God.
I remember watching a Dirty Harry movie called Magnum Force. This movie was about cops who used their position to wield power. It made them corrupt. At the conclusion of the movie, Clint Eastwood softly spoke, "You've got to know your limitations." Apparently, Lucifer didn't know his limitations very well. He thought God wasn't being fair to him because God had the knowledge of good and evil and Lucifer did not. Lucifer thought he was asking for wisdom. God knew he was asking for trouble.
Satan represents undefiled wisdom? When God granted Lucifer's wish to have the knowledge of good and evil, Lucifer became filled with pride. Lucifer made an attempt to remove God from the position of ruler of the universe. He led many angels astray and thus they were cast out of heaven. Jesus said he beheld Satan fall from heaven like lightning. Luke 10:18 Lucifer became Satan, the embodiment of evil and became the enemy of God. Anton Lavey states that becoming an enemy of the being that created you is a wise thing.
What is Satan's fate going to be? When Christ returns, Satan is going to be cast into a bottomless pit for 1,000 years. Revelation 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
So this all mighty and all knowing representation of wisdom gets to spend a 1,000 years in a bottomless pit. If Anton Lavey believes that spending a 1,000 years in a bottomless pit should be everyone's goal because it represents wisdom, then by all means let him go there. So what happens to the "undefiled wisdom of Satan" after that 1,000 years is over?
Revelation 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 20:9And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
So this ambassador for wisdom is freed after 1,000 years, deceives nations and leads one last rebellion against God. The result? Satan is cast into the lake of fire and brimstone to be tormented day and night forever. According to Anton Lavey's logic, Satan represents undefiled wisdom because he is eventually going to wind up in a lake of fire for eternity. I wonder if smoking will be allowed?
