Satan the great temptor
What is he tempting us to do?
A fallen Angel that wants us to worship him? instead of God?
Ask a devil worshiper and they will explain: they worship themselves.
That is what devil worship is.
Devil worship is an action not a religion.
It is worshipping your happiness and that of YOUR family.
What is evil? but human selfishness?
Is any evil ever done that is not human induced?
Isnt the rest, just acts of God?
Natural disasters? Accidents? Animal attacks?
The need for power, greed, more than another.
The gratification in people looking up to us is our ecstasy.
The joy in having more than another is our peace.
Do you have the new flatscreen or the best car?
A big house to show off to others? Your success?
Success in beating down others makes us happy.
Member of the country club? Beautiful mate? Smart kids?
Me, Me, Me, I, I, I.
We all do it, we are trained too as small children. Capitalism.
Giving up on selfishness is the most difficult thing a human can do.
In my culture, we worship Satan: The devil: Ouselves: Individualism.
We are tempted to put our family before anyone else and follow the temptation.
Stop lying to yourself, you do also. Lets just admit it.
We are selfish, and that is Devil Worship.
