What are the Nine Satanic Sins?

Updated on February 29, 2020

You mean Satanists have sins, too?

Well yeah! You can't have Satanism without a background in rebellion against the Puritanical Christian church, so of course the opposition to Christ and Christianity would carry over some characteristics of the same. One does not intend to convert people to look away from their God without giving first an avenue of ritualistic comfort (meaning giving new acolytes something they recognize as "the way things are done") like sin!

Moreover, the word sin brings to mind something which I, a good follower of [Insert Denomination Here] should not do. Immediately, and by virtue of the word's meaning in other languages, you can take away the impression that this is something to avoid. So, avoid these SINS if you are a Satanist (though oddly enough some of them are fairly common sense things you should aim to avoid no matter what you believe.)

The Cardinal Sin (greater than all others) is Stupidity.  The cornerstone philosophy of the Satanic religion is to pursue knowledge.  Ask questions, and question everything.  Stupidity is the product of many factors, and is dispelled by knowledge seeking.  Willful stupidity, be it through behavior or through word, is a Sin.

Pretentiousness - While you are always encouraged to take credit for and pride in the things you have done and achieved, using your deeds to create a loftier, more self-important image to impress and awe others is greatly frowned upon.  In a world where everyone is King of something, or at least made to feel that way, following that path of thought is sinful.

Solipsism - Simply put, to treat everyone around you in a manner that you would like to be treated, rather than in a reciprocal fashion based on their actions toward you is also sinful.  Instead, you should take personal responsibility for your own behaviors and deal with others based on their dealings with you.

Self-Deceit - To lie to yourself, to deal with the world in a fashion which is not reality is a sin.  Self-deceit can also lead to any of the other listed sins, as when you lie to yourself, you open doors to other falsehoods of behavior.

Herd Conformity - Believing what other people believe simply because of the magnitude of other believers.  Everything you read must be true everywhere, right?  Realistically speaking, every person has a motive for their views, and has twisted it in delivery in some fashion or another - it is your duty to see through any bias and get to the truth of the matter. 

Truth about Satanism

Lack of Perspective - Taking the world as what it is - both immediately around you and larger than you, can keep you from this sin.  Having a lack of perspective can lead you to believe things about yourself that are not true, (i.e. self-deceit) and gives you a doorway to forgetting yourself.

Forgetting Past Orthodoxes - When a new religion springs up, it is generally adoptive of old religions and repackages the concepts of such into something shiny and "new."  Never forget that this is the case, and will always be the case in the future.  This type of repackaging is a tool to draw in the stupid, the unwitting and the unwise into believing the same old illogical games as before.

Counterproductive Pride - Be proud of that which you have done, of that which you have achieved.  However, do not let this pride stop you from achieving more, learning more, experiencing more.  Swallow your pride, if only for a time, as a means of fulfilling more of your life's goals.

Lack of Aesthetics -  Find true beauty.  To merely accept that which is advertised or applauded as beautiful is to follow the herd and discourages personal growth.  Discovering the beauty and balance in this world, from your own eyes and perspective, is a boon to you.

      My mother thinks Satanism is only about murdering people, drinking animal's blood, and burning crosses. Wrong! I FORCED her to read this. After she was done, she was like "O My God, this doesn't sound bad at all!" So now I'm FINALLY able to believe what I want to :D

      There isn't anything to find fault with there. They are all logical and fit perfectly with what I believe; however I am not a Satanist. (Not yet anyway.) :)

      Well, you should also explain to people the difference between theistic and atheistic Satanism. That is, there are Satanists who believe the Bible, believe in God and Satan, and choose to worship Satan, possibly because He seems more powerful in affecting he world than God. The Nine Satanic Sins come from the Satanic Bible, which is, title aside, a guide for Atheistic/secular Satanism, simply mocking and opposing Christian values without a literal belief in either God or Satan.

      I am not a Satanist, myself, but in my many years of study and seeking I have learned quite a bit. I am glad to be able to present this information in a way that doesn't offend. :)

      I am very impressed with your intrepretation and writings on the Nine Satanic Sins. Most "Satanists" write very poorly and unintelligently when it comes to explaining the crux of the Satanic "belief system" (loosely worded of course). Kudos to you my dear.

      LOL Thanks Zsuzsy! I think there are a lot of things about Satanism that folks misunderstand, and I'm going to work on dispelling them as much as possible. :)

      Gamergirl! Judging by the title I wasn't sure if I was ready to know the satanic-sins but then I was pleasantly surprised that you were not going to talk about not liking the taste of goats blood or some such thing

      Great hub regards Zsuzsy
