Setian Luciferian Sins

      Setian Luciferianism agrees with the Satanic Sins as laid down by Anton LaVey. There are just a few additions:

Rigidity of thought – The only constant is change. Those who are unable to adapt to change will perish or hold others back. Dismissing an idea without at least making a genuine attempt to understand it is a sign that you might be acting stupidly. You cannot know the truth or worth of an idea if you dismiss it out of hand. As Robert Anton Wilson said, “When dogma enters the brain, all intellectual activity ceases.” This is as true of those who consider themselves intelligent science types as it is for those who religious. This is true of everyone, in fact.

Proselytization – In your own space, such as books, blogs, being among others like you, or being by yourself, you may speak as you like. In spaces not your own, do not give your opinion unless asked, and cease when they ask you to stop. It is rude and counterproductive to do otherwise.

Lack of a sense of humor – Pity those without a sense of humor, for the universe is often a very bad joke at our expense. Those who can laugh along during such times will survive, where the others will fall into despair and perish. Taking yourself or others too seriously is a recipe for disaster, and is the cause of myriad wars and other conflicts.

Inappropriate superiority and ageism – It is understandable to feel superior to an adult that might otherwise be an intelligent person if their reality tunnel had not trapped them so they can go neither forward nor back. But too many people decide, either consciously or subconsciously, that they are superior to children just because they are adults. This often leads them to mistreat or even abuse children. There are few lies as common nor as harmful as the belief than adults are inherently superior to children.

Harming children – There is no greater sin than hurting a child through either abuse or neglect. If you cannot treat children with respect, dignity, and love, you do not deserve to have them. Also be aware that children require gentle but firm repetition and explanation of things you take for granted. Expecting them to know everything you know, and punishing them when they show they don't, is a great sin. People who do things like commit the crime of shouting “you know better than that” to a child who clearly is too young to know better deserve scorn and derision, and do not deserve to have children.

Destroying works of art or writing – Willfull destruction of art, writing, or any work of creativity is never excusable, no matter how much you may object to the work. To throw any idea, no matter how absurd or evil, into the darkness only gives Yahweh Silver Tongue and Ahriman more power. To in any way diminish the cultural heritage of humanity is unforgivable.

Lack of perspective – One must strive at all times to keep things in perspective, to consider as many points of view as possible. If this requires drastic measures sometimes, then so be it. There are far too many people in the world who have never experienced true hunger, never truly worried about making ends meet, and never had to work a day in their life and yet wield power over people with problems they have never experienced firsthand and have no possible way of understanding. This leads to extremely “poor” (if you'll mind the pun) and self-serving leadership, which will eventually end in economic collapse or worse. This is just one of many examples of what can go wrong when one lacks perspective, and possibly not even the worst example.

Prejudice – Being prejudicial against someone because of their skin color, ethnicity, clothing, birth sex, gender expression, body modifications, weight, body shape, and even religion does not serve The Light; such prejudice serves only Ahriman and Yahweh Silver Tongue. Prejudice is the tool of the enemy, to drive us apart. But flesh is transitory, and we are all Demons under the skin; we were all born of the Fires of Hell. We all have the same capability of traveling the xeper road to become Demon Gods. Our Demon souls do not often share information with our mortal minds, and so when freed from the flesh we often have greater perspective than we did in the flesh; as such, the Demon soul may choose to live a life of someone of the same type that its previous lifetime oppressed. The goal of xeper is to get the mortal mind in line with the Demon soul. This could be incorrect, of course. But even if is, it is nonetheless true that prejudice does not make any sense, and serves only Ahriman and His dark allies. As part of the xeper path, we must discover all of our prejudices and work to dismantle them, because they do not serve the purpose of xeper, and they do not serve the goal of spreading enlightenment and freedom to others.

And of course, the original Satanic Sins by Anton LaVey:

1) Stupidity -- The top of the list for Satanic Sins. The Cardinal Sin of Satanism. It's too bad that stupidity isn't painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity. It depends on people going along with whatever they are told. The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable. Satanists must learn to see through the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid.

2) Pretentiousness -- Empty posturing can be most irritating and isn't applying the cardinal rules of Lesser Magic. On equal footing with stupidity for what keeps the money in circulation these days. Everyone's made to feel like a big shot, whether they can come up with the goods or not.

3) Solipsism -- Solipsism can be very dangerous for Satanists. Projecting your reactions, responses, and sensibilities onto someone else who is probably far less attuned that you are. It is the mistake of expecting people to give you the same consideration, courtesy, and respect that you naturally give them. They won't. Instead Satanists must strive to apply the dictum of "Do unto others as they do onto you." It's work for most of us and requires constant vigilance lest you slip into a comfortable illusion of everyone being like you. As has been said, certain utopias would be ideal in a nation of philosophers, but unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, from a Machiavellian viewpoint) we are from that point.

4) Self-Deceit -- It's in the Nine Satanic Statement but deserves to be repeated here. Another cardinal sin. We must not pay homage to any of the sacred cows presented to us, including the roles we are expected to play ourselves. The only time self-deceit should be entered is when it is fun, and with awareness. But then, it's not self-deceit!

5) Herd Conformity -- That's obvious from a Satanic stance. It's all right to conform to a person's wishes, if it ultimately benefits you. But only fools follow along with the herd, letting an impersonal entity dictate to you. The key is to choose a master wisely instead of being enslaved by the whims of many.

6) Lack of Perspective -- Again, this one can lead to a lot of pain for a Satanist. You must never lose sight of who and what you are, and what a threat you can be, by your very existence. We are making history right now, everyday. Always keep the wider historical and social picture in mind. That is an important key to both Lesser and Greater Magic. See the patterns and fit the things together as you want the pieces to fall into place. So not be swayed herd constraints--know that you are working on another level entirely from the rest of the world.

7) Forgetfulness of Past Orthodoxies -- Be aware that this one of the keys to brainwashing people into accepting something as "new" and "different", when in reality it's something that was once widely accepted but is now presented in a new package. We are expected to rave about the genius of the "creator" and forget the original. This makes for a disposable society.

8) Counterproductive Pride -- The first word is important. Pride is great up to the point you begin to throw out the baby with the bath water. The rule of Satanism is if it works for you, great. When it stops working for you, when you've painted yourself into a corner and the only way out is to say, "I'm sorry, I made a mistake, I wish we could compromise somehow," then do it

9) Lack of Aesthetics -- This is the physical application of the Balance Factor. It is important in Lesser Magic and should be cultivated. It is obvious that no one can collect any money off it most of the tome so it is discouraged in a consumer society, but is an essential Satanic tool and must be applied for magical effectiveness. It's not what's supposed to be pleasing--it's what is. Aesthetics is a highly personal thing, reflective of one's own nature, but there are universally pleasing and harmonious configurations that should not be denied.
