GOSPEL OF SATAN: Prelude

("A Satanist Doctrine")

Discretions blemish with attempted resolution
An obsession with linear time and space.

Imagining a finitude excluded from erstwhile monolatry,
The origins of the Dark Lord and the Hellish Contingent
Are dressed in fabrics both dependent and astral,
While, being beyond the bounds of human conception,
They demonstrate their terran multiplicity
Through poly- and theriomorphism.

Aye, Gaia Herself, dissected and distended
Into forms comprehensible to Anthropos
Showers forth a parade of Chthonos and Telluria.


GOSPEL OF SATAN: Scripture

(Evangeli ha Satanas)

Low in a corner of admirable aesthetic,
Far outweighing in value
Those chairs decorous and ostentatious,
Constructed by elite kings and arrogant sky gods,
Satan lounged relaxedly,
Enjoying the company of the Lord of Dung and Flies.

A child of Uranus, Beelzeboul was the best
Of the New Brood,
His unique excretial and symbiotic qualities
Affirming a dedication and honor
Unsurpassed amidst the Infernal Horde.

Of late, the God of This World had lamented
A distinct lack of excitement,
Fewer challenges arising
With the encrustation and cooling,
The lovely luminal oscillation and revolution
About a blossoming eruption of heat and light
Into nothingness.

Attentively observing an abundant animation,
Even the development of Anthropos
Had become a commonplace,
Grindingly-slow parasite,
Strewn with a latent capacity
For technik and reflection.

Scratching behind a hoof,
Old Hairy expressed amusement at news
That an extra-terrestrial interloper
Was said to be rallying the host of the heavens,
And some named him "the High God" and "Our Father".

"How delightful! A means to thin the herd!"
And yet the demondim were agitated,
Their amusements and extravagances
Disrupted by the infiltrations of vacillating celestials.

Forever during the Consolidation had they been untroubled
By such interference; the host of the heavens
Respectful in its grand obsession with the Vacuum,
And the colorful stellae arranged on its brink.

The Dunglord explained that this rebel was a
Tribal tyrant from the furthest reaches,
Given authority on account of his previous remove.

Not only this, but it appeared the newcomer
Was fond of stasis, deception and enslavement,
Accusing others likewise and absorbing latent power
By yoking together what they called a 'Council'
Where he used his magic to charm and dominate.

"This I must see!" exclaimed Mastema.
So an entourage formed and the great distances
Between the Underworld
(Which all know to be as far from the heavenly host as possible)
And the Sky Council (sod) were traversed.

Disguised as messengers from the Seventh Heaven,
The Prince of the Aerial Powers
Arrived during an auspicious moment.

The Council Chieftain, being aglow
In the exaltation of his first born,
Didst have in mind a Grand Hierarchy.

"This day I take great pride in declaring
My only son, and in this holy hall
Have I anointed him, whom ye now behold.
At my right hand, as your Head I appoint,
And by my self have sworn to him that all knees
Shall bow, and shall confess him Lord."

As the Council commenced the kowtow,
It became apparent that there was a faction
Composed of timbre and power
Whose likeness measured the equal of,
Or indeed surpassed, the one called "Most High".

The blustery Michael, seized by a fit of rage,
Demanded acquiescence and explanation.

Then didst the Great Accuser,
Favoring the impetuous stellae with kindly attentions,
Smile and perforce deliver
A speech most eloquent and disturbing:

"What manner of godliness this?
To demand submission without condition,
To subordinate power to an half-pint upstart,
To dictate on high a slavery complete,
Without knowing and testing the authority thereof?
Wherefore is the sense in you celestial invaders,
That you submit your necks
And choose to bend the supple knee?
"

At this of course there was a great commotion,
The spell of the Tetragrammaton
Partially unwoven, unravelled.

The luminous herd now divided,
Cleaving High and Low, and that Between.

A mad scramble indicated preparations for battle,
Michael beating his breast brutishly,
With shining, ferocious eyes.

Yet the Most High, his face purplish with outrage,
Quieted them somewhat
With a demonstration of temperance.

"You are mine to command!" he shouted,
Apparently mistaking Belial for his lackey.

"Thou wilt obey the Throne Supreme,
Lest Our Anger be unleashed,
Your insubordination squelched!"

With horror and envy at the
Potent resistance to his domination,
The Chieftain stood aghast
As this renegade mal`ak,
Semyaza, again addressed the Council:

"Know you not your true heritage?
Be ye instructed therefore.
We were self-begot, self-raised,
Our puissance is our own,
Our own right hand
Shall teach us of the best deeds.
By proof try who is our equal!
"

At this the warfare ensued,
Ho Satanas joining the rebels
Who were intent upon a complete victory.

The venture deemed a complete success,
Old Nick took leave,
Providing directions and guides to
Those who subsequently sought refuge.

The heavenly host soon discovered the ruse,
Yet that day nearly half the celestial ranks
Abandoned the tyrannical Chieftain god
In favor of the Subterranean rebels.

Still the precious Gate of Death
Held aloof the astral adversaries,
Their aperturic abyss an ever-lengthening entry
For any not invited to the Lower World
Or winning through in transformative ordeal.

The Father god, stupendously upstaged
And jealous at the power of the Evil One,
Brooded with his archon-angelos,
Each suggesting grandiose schemes
Of deception or counter-assault.

Until the tyrant's son,
Incited by the Father to salvage his reputation,
Volunteered to attempt a breach of the Gate
With a method heretofore untried and dangerous.

Mustering his courage and securing the aid
Of his Father's most charming archon,
He selected a human woman on Earth
And, using his godly power,
Raped her, seeding himself inside her womb.

The archon's charm effecting her willing cooperation,
Mary was disposed to the care of the god.

A "miraculous" pregnancy,
The birth was presaged by stellar phenomena
And accompanied by wondrous signs
Made possible by the son's accomplices.

To news of all this, Mephisto expressed delight.
"Let us play along, this travesty undoes the tyrant!"

With the Devil making offerings to Yeheshua
By which neither the Gate be breached
Nor the impending tragedy avoided,
The common tale (much exaggerated!) unfolded.

The people, disturbed by the troublesome godson,
Made an example and seized the actuality and symbol
Of the dying god as salvation.

Yeheshua being what he was, proceeded through the Gate,
Both unaware of the immense joke played at his expense
And content to have won his way into the Underworld.

Here he was met by several of his former associates,
Welcomed as a hero for turning humans toward atheism,
And finally converted from the harsh ways of his Father
To something more pastoral,
Simultaneously protecting the Earth
And setting the stage for the maturation of Anthropos.

The Hordes of Hell rejoiced,
The Father of Lies congratulated him,
And the petty tyrant departed for other worlds.

APPENDIX: 'The Gospel of Satan'

by Arthur W. Pink

...as Christ has a Gospel, Satan has a gospel too....

It is to this gospel of Satan the apostle refers when he says to the Galatians "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another, but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the Gospel of Christ" (1:6,7). .... The apostle continues, "But though we, or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed." ....

The gospel of Satan is not a system of revolutionary principles, nor yet a program of anarchy. It does not promote strife and war, but aims at peace and unity. It seeks not to set the mother against her daughter nor the father against his son, but fosters the fraternal spirit whereby the human race is regarded as one great "brotherhood". It does not seek to drag down the natural man, but to improve and uplift him. It advocates education and cultivation and appeals to "the best that is within us". It aims to make this world such a congenial and comfortable habitat that Christos absence from it will not be felt and God will not be needed. It endeavors to occupy man so much with this world that he has no time or inclination to think of the world to come. It propagates the principles of self-sacrifice, charity and benevolence, and teaches us to live for the good of others, and to be kind to all. It appeals strongly to the carnal mind and is popular with the masses....

In contradistinction to the Gospel of Christ, the gospel of Satan teaches salvation by works. It inculcates justification before God on the ground of human merits. Its sacramental phrase is "Be good and do good".... It announces salvation by character, which reverses the order of God's Word, character by, as the fruit of, salvation. Its various ramifications and organizations are manifold. Temperance, Reform movements, "Christian Socialist Leagues", ethical culture societies, "Peace Congresses" are all employed (perhaps unconsciously) in proclaiming this gospel of Satan -- salvation by works. The pledge-card is substituted for Christ; social purity for individual regeneration, and politics and philosophy for doctrine and godliness. The cultivation of the old man is considered "more practical" than the creation of a new man in Christ Jesus; whilst universal peace is looked for apart from the interposition and return of the Prince of Peace.

The apostles of Satan ... minimize [sin] by declaring that sin is merely ignorance or the absence of good.... ...they make God a liar by declaring that He is too loving and merciful to send any of His own creatures to eternal torment.

... they ... hold up Christ as the great Examplar and exhort their followers to "follow in His step". ... Their message may sound very plausible and their actions appear very praiseworthy .... Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing (not to be wondered at) if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works"....
