Appropriation of Satanism and lawsuits

Appropriation of Satanism and lawsuits

There has been a lot of bitching and complaining by various so-called Satanists as of late in regards to the appropriation and “misuse” of Satan/Satanism in the media as of late.
The biggest complaint that I have seen is from the Satanic temple a group of performance artist liberal arts “activists” complaining about how a Tv show stole the image of their particular rendering of Baphomet on a tv show featured on netflix.
But is the Baphomet even a traditional Satanic symbol?

Levi himself described the meaning of the symbol thusly in “Dogme et Rituel:”

“The goat on the frontispiece carries the sign of the pentagram on the forehead, with one point at the top, a symbol of light, his two hands forming the sign of hermetism, the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed, the other pointing down to the black one of Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect harmony of mercy with justice. His one arm is female, the other male like the ones of the androgyn of Khunrath, the attributes of which we had to unite with those of our goat because he is one and the same symbol. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is the magic light of the universal balance, the image of the soul elevated above matter, as the flame, whilst being tied to matter, shines above it. The beast’s head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes. The rod standing instead of genitals symbolizes eternal life, the body covered with scales the water, the semi-circle above it the atmosphere, the feathers following above the volatile. Humanity is represented by the two breasts and the androgyn arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences.”

Originally this symbol had very little to nothing in connection with actual Satanism.
It only became popular among Satanists when Anton Lavey appropriated the symbol for the church of Satan.
The Satanic temple has even rendered their own version appropriating it from occultists and from “modern satanists”  to fit their own agenda and narrative.

Lucien Greaves leader and spokesperson of the Satanic Temple Wishes to sue netflix and the creators of “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” claiming they stole design for a demonic statue of the occult deity Baphomet, the group’s spokesperson Lucien Greaves wrote on Twitter.

Greaves further goes on with a conspiracy theory that netflix is somehow promoting a satanic panic with the way the show portrays satanists/satan.
In my opinion The Satanic temples version of the Baphomet triggers the narrative of Satanic conspiracy theorists in regards to child sex trafficking and pedophilia through their appropriation and rendering of the Baphomet adding children  to the image almost confirms this theory and propaganda.

The Satanic Temple does have a legitimate legal complaint when it comes to their copyright and trademark of their image of Baphomet since it is unique and exclusive.
However you must question the real reason why the group would be so defensive of a religion and “deity” that they do not represent or recognize.
Money talks and seems to be the motivation behind this complaint.

Recently The Tv series American Horror story fictionalized Anton lavey from the church of  Satan changing him into some sort of Theistic devil worshiper who performed human sacrifices. The show also has shown Satanists to gather in basements sacrificing people for the antichrist.

As an ordained Reverend Of the religion Theistic Satanism I have no concern for such theatrics and fiction the show entertains me and I have no fear that it somehow will cause a “satanic panic”
Let me ask you Brothers and Sisters do you wish Satanism to constantly be portrayed as a fluffy religion such as wicca?

We are Satanists and Satan is the great adversary we are warriors and should not be concerned about how the outside world views us.
This white washing of Satanism by liberal performance artists has somehow given many of you the idea that we are some sort of new age salvation army.
It is that appropriation  of satanism that you should be concerned about because it has actually affected those with in the religion to lose sight of who we are.

Theistic Satanism is not a new age religion

Theistic Satanism is not a new age religion
BY
Reverend Dr Robert Fraize
maxresdefault-1024x576

I open this article by stating that this is in no way a burn or hate towards any person or organization
I am writing this article in hopes to educate people to stop spreading disinformation.

Out of all my years in the occult/Satanic scene I have seen my share of weird and bizarre beliefs I even have shared my own weird and bizarre beliefs.
But not until very recently have I ever thought that I would need to explain how new age religion/spiritualist is In no way connected with Theistic Satanism.

There come waves of people in each generation and new figures and organizations are established and formed.
I have seen so many come and go mainly because people decide to do this for money or fame and there is no money or fame in the occult/satanic scene so they end up leaving.
This current new wave of occultists are the kids who grew up on harry potter and twilight.
Everything seems to sparkle to these people and somewhere they got the idea that you can take anything and shine it up to be anything that you want it to be in the name of “evolution”

Theistic Satanism was established when the Enuma Elish was written the great epic of our creator the dragon of old (SATAN)Tiamat vs the solar deity who later became the god of Abraham (Marduk)
All theistic Satanists who actually practice this ancient religion know that our religion is a stand alone religion which predates all Modern religions.
Theistic Satanists do not recognize Lucifer,Iblis or any devils or demons from the religions of Abraham as those religions are corruptions and rewrites of the original religion.

Theistic Satanism as a stand alone religion does not require evolving as that would mean that it would be changed from its foundation which is already established.
If you are going to mix in your own spirituality and beliefs from other religions into what you think is Theistic Satanism it is no longer Theistic Satanism but something else so why call it Theistic Satanism at all?

And what is new ageism what constitutes a new age religion?
Unlike other people I provide definitions so people can understand what I am talking about to prove my point.

New Age

NOUN

  • often as modifier A broad movement characterized by alternative approaches to traditional Western culture, with an interest in spirituality, mysticism, holism, and environmentalism.

The definition of New age says that it is an alternative approach to western culture?
The problem here is that Theistic Satanism is not a western religion of philosophy it was founded in the middle east in Sumeria in what is now known as Iraq.
All educated people know that new age spiritualism became established and popular in the 1970s with a strong focus on self development and holistic healing .

Religions like Wicca can be considered newage as they adopted aspects of ancient practices but where mixed together with modern ideology with peace and love in mind.
Theistic Satanism existed long before the 1970s and has absolutely no connection with the ideology of the new-age movement.
Theistic Satanism has not “evolved” as some say into a new age religion or philosophy Theistic Satanism continues to thrive as a Stand alone religion with real structure,tradition and doctrine.

As long as I live There will always be a religion called Theistic Satanism.
And it is my job and the reverends of the traditional church of Satan to teach this religion to the new wave of satanists to keep it alive.
The Traditional church of Satan does not exist for popularity nor do we exist to make money or promote the pipe dream of Unity peace and love.
We exist to serve and honor Satan!

Satanism requires no cult initiation

Satanism requires no cult initiation

By Reverend Dr.Robert Fraize

(Originally published at traditionalchurchofsatan.net on April 4, 2016. Revised 922/18)

I would like to take this time to talk about a subject that has been brought up by some ignorant misinformed individuals.

Some people have failed to realize that Satanism is a religion,spiritual movement,philosophy based on individual freedom.
The whole concept of Satanism is self development and empowerment.
regardless if you recognize a deity or not a although I personally do not recognize aesthetic satanist the Satanists goal is not to imitate or seek the acceptance of others.

I have been questioned by some people as to who initiated me and into what “coven”
This question was asked by ignorant pseudo Satanists.
I do feel the need to answer this question because maybe it will help educate people.
I initiated myself at a very young age.
I had designed a ritual based on what I was feeling and my thoughts during meditation.
I held a private Ceremony between myself and My deity this was a spiritual ceremony and would not had been the same if it involved other people.

Later I was Ordained by A Satanic church in Massachusetts that closed
and obtained a ulc ministers license until 2012 when the Church Of Leviathan became a legally recognized church dedicated to Theistic Satanism at which time the board ordained me and gave me the title (Pope)

I do not believe that a Satanist should ever have to conform to the ideology and standards of another man.
and for this reason I myself do not hold initiation ceremonies to initiate people into any organization that I have ever been apart of and I never will.
I however have written rituals for self baptism for Individuals to perform in solitude.
People can say whatever they like about this to discredit me and that is perfectly fine with me but building a relationship with Satan is not done through some bizarre hazing or sexual ritual to benifit the gratification of another human being.

Theistic Satanism is a stand alone religion.

Theistic Satanism is a stand alone religion
By
Reverend Robert Fraize.
(The leader of theistic Satanism)

wallpaper-1dc56d.jpg

I have had enough sitting back and watching people in the “satanic community” Mixing what I call bullshit into the religion of Theistic Satanism.
People will argue that Theistic Satanism is not a religion but rather a philosophy or spiritual practice. and while philosophy and individual spiritual practices are apart of Theistic Satanism that does not make it so.

Theistic Satanism is a traditional religion dating back to the days that predate the religions of abraham the Kabbalah the goetia and Ahriman.
and was established around the year  1500 BCE when the Sacred tablets the Enuma elish were written.

It is these tablets that set the foundation of the religion of Theistic Satanism the great cosmic battle between the creator Dragon Tiamat vs the solar deity Marduk.
Theistic Satanism has no historical roots with  the corrupted religions that came afterwards and only Idiots and ignorant worms would believe any different.

You have people claiming to be apart of “Theistic Satanism” making all sorts of uneducated and childish claims that Theistic Satanism is whatever you want it to be.
Those of us who have studied and practiced the religion for decades know that this is not true. Call it dogmatic if you wish BUT the fact is Theistic Satanism has a set system and beliefs separate from other religions which makes it a (STAND ALONE RELIGION) .
As a Reverend of the religion Theistic Satanism it is my Job to educate people with the truth of the religion and not to keep silent on such issues.
No matter how unpopular the truth is or how many people disagree or hate me for it does not matter.

If you are a Theistic Satanists and wish to study and even practice other “religions”
that is your own personal choice.
Your personal choice does not reflect onto the religion (theistic satanism) and should never be taught as a part of the religion (theistic satanism).

The problem is that while it is important to study everything it is not logical to mix and match them because the end result is the equivalent to a bad chemical combination that leads to an explosion in the practitioners face.

I would not be much of a reverend if i was not looking out for people of the religion of which I represent would I.
so I leave you with this.

If you wish to be a Theistic Satanist be a Theistic Satanist study the religion and practice it. beware of people who are mixing  various bullshit in order to sell you some products along with a pretty face.
They may get facebook and video likes but Theistic Satanism is not about popularity nor is it about the approval of others.

The goal of a Theistic Satanist is to gain the true power of the universe through a relationship with the Ancient dragon and anyone who says  differently obviously has not studied very long or has read the disinformation work of e.a Koetting ford AND OTHERS .

How to create your own thought form

how to create your own thought form
by
Reverend Robert Fraize

images (1)

Create Your Own Thought-Form
Even if you’ve studied the occult, I feel it’s
necessary to explain what a “Thought form”is. Many attempts have been made to explain this as well as teach methods for creating them that I feel falls short. A
Thought-form is a manifestation of an entity that is created by combining your energy with that of Satan.

The form itself is a psychic entity and is created to do the work of a magician that is not able to travel great distances.
They are useful for many things
such as protecting loved-ones, or to do your bidding to an enemy. There is no limitation to what your psychic entities can do for you.

Many people fail at creating Thought-forms,because they fail to recognize it is not just their own psychic energy that creates them.Our energy comes from Satan, the Creator,and all things are made from this energy.
When people fail to recognize Satan, they
lose all true psychic ability and are, in a
sense, cut off from the energy grid that
connects all things.

In order for a Thought-form, to manifest
properly you must both recognize and honor Satan which imbued you with power.
It is required that before any ritual you honor Satan
In a dark room light a candle on your altar, if you are outside, a campfire is proper, say
aloud:

“Satan, My God, the Creator, of all
things I come before you as a
Son/Daughter, I ask you to grant me
the power that I need to complete my
work. So let it be done.”
Now you make an offering in the form of
cooked meat on a clean plate in front of the
flame. Say aloud:
“Satan, accept my gift to you, may the Vital
Energy from this animal bring you power
and strength, as I devour this creature thatyou have given me.

I share with you the
energy within my essence”
At this time, you devour the offering and
Satan will also feast through the energy
inside of you. After you have honored
Satan, you take a quartz crystal and place it on top of a speaker and play “The Mantra of Tiamat”, the song can be found on the album: “Satanic Ritual Music”. Play the song as loud as possible with strong bass.
The Mantra of Tiamat was created to
vibrate the ritual chamber at a certain
frequency, which is known to open portals to other dimensions. As The Mantra of Tiamat is being played,mediate and gaze into the crystal, with the vision and end result of the task that you will assign the Thought-form. Continue this until you can
visualize the whole process and see the task to the end. Now, place the crystal onto your altar, or in front of the flame, this is when you give your Thought-Form an image.
It is very important to think about the task that you will assign it.
If your Thought-form is going to be used for protection, create it in the image of
something huge with the weapons, that you wish it to use for protection. If it is to be created to destroy your enemy, create it into the most fearsome monster that you can dream up.

With the crystal placed in front of the flame,visualize your creation coming to life.
With Your eyes closed, project your astral-self into the fourth dimension and from your own point of view, in this alternative dimension, walk up to your creation and instruct the creation of its task.

Tell your creation that through the Power of Satan, it shall be commanded and that it shall obey your every word and wish.
At this time, you must feed the creation, and this is done by sending the vital energy that you and Satan consumed in the offering process.

It is wise to give your creation a name, so
that it can return to the crystal and feed on more energy to continue its task until it is done.

That is all that you need to do to properly
create a Thought-form, it does not need to
be difficult, but you must respect and honor Satan, because without Satan, it simply
won’t work.

Evocation/Conjuration of the infernal ones By Reverend Fraize

Evocation/Conjuration of the infernal ones

By Reverend Fraize

conjuring-1

These practices were received in the astral world and passed on by the Shadow Man. This knowledge penetrates the membrane between worlds where matters of Spirit meet the Flesh. Demonolatry is not to be treated lightly. Should you choose to summon these entities, they should be given due respect or else suffer the consequences.

Eshatra Visually, Eshatra appears as a reptilian male that stands nine feet tall and is approximately five hundred pounds. His skin is patterned as a reticulated python. He has long hands with long fingers and talon claws. His head resembles that of a human’s with a snout of an alligator. He has three rows of serrated teeth much like a shark. Eshatra’s power evoked will protect people who respect and help Reptiles on Earth. Eshatra expects offerings of raw meat and when called upon only a warm room with light of flame will do. His sigil should be drawn upon a mirror and while holding a snake in one hand you gaze upon it. Place a small offering of raw meat on a clean dish in front of the mirror and chant the following: “Esh-at-ra, Esh-at-ra, I call upon you to protect me from my enemy. Accept this flesh that I have offered you, as a symbolic offering of the soul of my enemy.

Tiamat  As the ancient dragon that represents chaos and creation, summon with caution. She is among the first of Adversarial forces. Her home is Ancient Sumer and Babylon and is drawn to reminders of her Motherland. To call upon Tiamat, draw her sigil and place a dark offering bowl on top of it. The offering bowl should be filled with salt water from the ocean. This bowl represents the Abyss. If you do not have access to the Ocean, spring water and salt is an acceptable substitute. Never use tainted tap water as it would greatly offend our ocean Mother. Chant the following while gazing into the Abyss:

Apollo  is a Greek god widely known for his artistic and musical abilities. He is also tied to prophecy, oracles, healing, plague, disease, poetry, archery, and protection. Apollo accepts offerings of ink or paint. To call upon him, light a green candle and gaze into it. Imagine Apollo playing beautiful music, as he guides your desired wishes, and say aloud: “I call upon Apollo, God of poetry, art and music to lend me his ears, eyes, and mouth, so that He may guide me on creating a masterpiece in the name of Apollo. Let it be done, Hail Apollo!”

Anzu In Sumerian myths, Anzu was a large bird of prey that lived in the realm of the gods. Sometime around 2000 BCE stories arose that he rebelled against them. Anzu represents seeking hidden knowledge. To call upon Anzu, you light three candles of any color and burn pine resin over coal. 24 Gaze into the smoke and visualize the great bird rising from the ashes as a strong spirit with fire burning around him. When see this image, chant out the following: “An-zu An-zu An-zu, I spit on the name of Enlil! He wishes to keep knowledge for hidden from me, rather to share it to benefit everyone! I thank you for your sacrifice and honor and respect you. I come to you and ask you to give me the knowledge of which is seek!” Now close your eyes and meditate without any distraction, slowly breathing through your nose and out of your mouth. Meditate until your questions are answered.

Iblis In the Qur’an, the devil has 2 names. It is thought that Iblis was derived from the Greek diabolos and always used in the 25 singular form as a personal name, usually in the context of a fall from grace. Some scholars have argued that Shaytan, his other name (Arabic), was possibly derived from the root ‘to be far from’ or ‘born with anger,’ and may have been applied as a result of a rebellion. As the story goes that when Allah created man, he told all spirits to bow before him. Iblis refused, claiming he was above humans because he was created out of fire instead of mud. Allah then cast him down for his pride. Thus, Iblis represents rebellion when those in power become corrupt. Iblis can be called to help spawn a rebellion against tyranny. The only offering that Ibis requires is that you show your pride above all others. To call upon Iblis, light a candle and gaze into the flame and chant: “Iblis, great rebellious one, enemy of the tyrant god Allah: I call to you to lend me your strength, so that I can overcome and destroy those that unjustly rule my life. In 26 the name of Shaytan, let it be done. Hail Iblis!”

Amon  is a strong and powerful marquis. He appears as a wolf with the head of a snake spitting fire. He is also known to take a human shape with long sharp wolf teeth. He makes peace among the past and present, as well among friend and foe. Amon can be called to settle arguments among friends and family. To call upon Amon, you must hold a snake in your left hand and gaze into a mirror, with your own hand-drawn sigil dedicated to Amon chanting the following: “Amon, great and powerful marquis: I have been involved in an argument/fight with people who I love, I ask for you to intervene and restore peace, In the name of Amon, let it be done.

Bune Bune is a strong duke. He appears as a dragon with three heads: One head of a dog, the second a griffon, and third of a man. He is known to raise the dead and to gather demons around tombs. Bune enjoys an offering of meat which is left on top of your own hand-drawn sigil. Light your candle and gaze into a scrying mirror or bowl and say the following: “Great duke Bune, I come to you, raise the dead so that I may speak with my loved one again. Hail Bune!”

Gruago Gruago is a powerful king who rules over the swamps of the underworld waste land. He is often described as a massive amphibious beast, and some say that he looks to be a hybrid of a man and a snake. He has the legs of a man and the body of a snake having no arms and his head resembles a cobra. Each of his teeth are fangs loaded with enough venom to kill 28 every creature on earth. Gruago possesses the power of stealth, he is able to sneak into an enemy tribe without warning and kills them all. You may conjure Gruago if you are looking for ways to invade an enemy’s lair. On the eve of the horned moon, you must walk into a swamp, into the sticky mud among the snakes and frogs. Find the thorn-bush and only using your bare hands break five limbs off of the bush by doing this it shows your devotion and determination. Once you have all of the branches, place them upon the mud in the pattern of the pentagram. When the pentagram is complete, light one candle in the center of the star, and gaze into it and chant the following: “Gru-ag-o Gru-ag-o, open your serpent eyes so that you can hear me call your name, slither up through the endless mud out of the abyss and grant me audience. I 29 have come to you to ask you to show me the way into my enemy’s lair, so that I can infiltrate them from the inside. “ After you have spoken the words, close your eyes until you can feel the presence of snakes all around you. Wait until a snake crosses your path, this is when you know that Gruago has heard your wishes. Bury the pentagram and candle in the mud, when you dream, you will receive Gruago’s answers.

Pazuzu Pazuzu is king of the demons of wind, and son of the god Hanbi. He also represented the south-western wind, the bearer of storms and drought. Pazuzu was said to be invoked in amulets, which combat the powers of his rival, the malicious goddess Lamashtu, who was believed to cause harm to mother and child during childbirth. Although Pazuzu is, himself, an evil spirit, he drives away other evil spirits, therefore protecting humans against plagues and misfortunes. To conjure 30 Pazuzu, light charcoal and sprinkle candle wood on it as an offering. Draw a Sigil of Pazuzu on a small mirror and place candles around it. Say aloud: “Pazuzu, Great Demon of the wind, I call upon you to protect me and my loved ones.”

Lucifer The name Lucifer, means ‘day star,’ or ‘sun of the morning.’ It is believed that Lucifer is also another name for Satan. Christians have made Lucifer into a demon or devil, and this is one of their many lies. The fact is, Lucifer is the sun of the morning or the light-bearer and represents enlightenment. To conjure Lucifer, sit in a dark room and light a blue flame. Sterno is suitable for this task. Draw a sigil and gaze into the blue flame and say aloud: “Lucifer, god of Enlightenment, come to me and show me the errors of my ways wash 31 away my ignorance with the eternal flame of enlightenment”.

/Hekate, is a goddess in Greek religion and mythology, most often shown holding two torches or a key. She was associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, and gateways. She has knowledge of herbs, necromancy, and sorcery. To conjure Hecate, sit by a river under a full moon and burn roses. Offer the roses to Hecate and say the following: “Great goddess Hecate, I call to you to open the doors that have been shut in my life, I seek your guidance”

Satan The Dragon Tiamat Theistic Satanism

Tiamat (goddess)

Tiamat is a personification of the primordial sea from which the gods were first created. She is also the main adversary of Marduk in the Enūma Eliš TT .

Functions

Tiamat’s exact functions as a goddess are difficult to establish. As her name indicates (see below), she was a deification of the primordial sea. Our best source of information for Tiamat is the myth Enūma Eliš TT , and in fact, there are only a handful of references to her outside of it. Enūma Eliš TT  begins with a description of the two primeval seas, the salt sea Tiamat and the sweet sea Abzu TT , mingling their waters together to create the gods (for recent translations of the story see Foster 2005: 436-486 and Lambert 2013). In the following battle between Abzu TT  and Ea, Tiamat attempts to appease Abzu TT  and stop the conflict. But when she is later pressured by the lower gods to revenge him, she herself becomes the main antagonist of the story, creating an army of monsters led by her new consort, Qingu. She is ultimately defeated by Marduk, who incapacitates her with his “Evil Wind” and then kills her with an arrow. Marduk splits her in two, creating heaven and earth from her body, the Tigris and Euphrates from her eyes, mist from her spittle, mountains from her breasts and so on. Throughout the epic, there are differing descriptions of Tiamat: she appears both as a body of water, as a human figure, and as having a tail (Tablet V, line 59). These varying descriptions are ultimately reconciled as Marduk turns her limbs into geographical features.

Divine Genealogy and Syncretisms

In Enūma Eliš TT , Tiamat is the mother of all the gods (Tablet I, line 4). Together with Abzu TT  she creates Lahmu and Lahamu, who in turn beget Anšar and Kišar.

Though one cannot point to a syncretism as such, there are several models for Tiamat in the earlier mythology. Katz (2011: 18f) argues that the figure of Tiamat unites two strands of tradition attached to the sea. The first is the motherly figure of Namma, who is also referred to as a primeval ocean from which the gods were created. The other is the figure of the sea as a monstrous adversary, like the Levantine god Yamm (see also Jacobsen 1968: 107). Another important influence for the figure of Tiamat is Anzu, a mythical bird defeated by Ninurta, indeed the battle between Marduk and Tiamat has a number of parallels to the battle between Ninurta and Anzu (Lambert 1986).

Cult Place(s)

There was no cult dedicated directly to Tiamat, but the battle between Tiamat and Marduk played an important role in the New Year’s festival TT  in Babylon. The Enūma Eliš TT  was recited on its fourth day, and some argue that the festival included a symbolic reenactment of the mythological battle (see the discussion in Lambert 2013: 461f).

Time Periods Attested

The oldest attestation of Tiamat is an Old Akkadian incantation (Westenholz 1974: 102), though there are few other references to her until the first millenium BCE (see Lambert 2013: 237). After the composition of the Enūma Eliš TT , Tiamat is found in a number of theological commentary works, but most of these seem to rely on the epic (e.g. SAA 3.39, r. 1-3). Tiamat is also mentioned by Berossus, writing in the 3rd century BCE (Breucker 2011: 648f).

Iconography

A relief from the temple of Bêl in Palmyra depicts Nabu and Marduk slaying Tiamat, who is shown with a woman’s body and legs made of snakes (Dirven 1997). However, this scene is a late Hellenistic adoption of the Babylonian motif, and no Mesopotamian image has been positively identified as a representation of Tiamat. A string of identifications (Yadin 1971Grafman 1972Kaplan_1976) have recently been rejected (George_2012), and until new evidence surfaces they remain dubious.

Name and Spellings

The name Tiamat is uncontracted form of the word tâmtu, meaning “sea”. The long vowel â is contracted from the short vowels i and a. The word is in the “absolute state,” a noun form that is equivalent to the vocative (a grammatical case which directly invokes or addresses a person or deity; literally the name means “O, sea!”).

Written forms: dti-amat, ti-amat, dtam-tum, ti-àm-tim, ta-à-wa-ti

Normalised forms: Tiamat, Tiāmat, Tiʼamat, Thalatta (Greek).

According to Academic scholars Tiamat was the first representation of a Dragon creator and the adversary of the solar deity Marduk making her the first Adversarial Deity.
In ancient times people did not Worship our Mother because they had became corrupted by Marduk and his cult followers into believing she was evil.
But we must not forget it was Marduk not Tiamat who created humans to become the slaves of the god’s
In the Days leading to the great war between the dragon and the solar deity Humans did not exist our lives at no time where ever in danger by the creator.
The Traditional Church of Satan recognizes Tiamat as Satan but recognizes the individuals rights to choose which ever adversarial deity that they chose to recognize or not recognize. Our church believes in the importance of developing your own relationship with the deity that comes to you during meditation.
