I exercise dominion over all creatures and over the affairs of all
who are under the protection of my image. I am ever present to help all
who trust in me and call upon me in time of need. There is no place in
the universe that knows not my presence. I participate in all the
affairs which those who are without call evil because their nature is
not such that they approve. Every age has its own manager, who directs
affairs according to my decrees. This office is changeable from
generation to generation, that the ruler of this world and his chiefs
may discharge the duties of their respective offices, every one in his
own turn . I allow everyone to follow the dictates of his own nature,
but he that opposes me will regret it sorely. No god has a right to
interfere in my affairs, and I have made it an imperative rule that
everyone shall refrain from worshiping all gods. All the books of those
who are without are altered by them, and they have declined from them,
although they were written by the prophets and the apostles. That there
are interpolations is seen in the fact that each sect endeavors to prove
that the others are wrong and to destroy their books. Truth and
falsehood are known to me. When temptation comes, I give my covenant to
him that trusts in me. Moreover, I give counsel to the skilled
directors, for I have appointed them for periods that are known to me. I
remember necessary affairs and execute them in due time. I teach and
guide those who follow my instruction. If anyone obey me and conform to
my commandments, he shall have joy, delight and comfort.
I requite the descendants of Adam, and reward them with various
rewards that I alone know. Moreover, power and dominion over all that is
on earth, both that which is above and that which is beneath, are in my
hand. I do not allow friendly association with other people, nor do I
deprive them that are my own and obey me of anything that is good for
them. I place my affairs in the hands of those whom I have tried and who
are in accord with my desires. I appear in diverse manner to those who
are faithful and under my command. I give and take away; I enrich and
impoverish; I cause both happiness and misery. I do all this in keeping
with the characteristics of each epoch. And none has a right to
interfere with my management of affairs. Those who oppose me I afflict
with disease, but my own shall not die like the sons of Adam that are
without. None shall live longer in this world than the time set by me
and if I so desire, I send a person a second or third time is this world
or into some other by the transfer of will.
I lead to the straight path without a revealed book; I direct aright
my beloved and my chosen ones by unseen means. All my teachings are
easily applicable to all times and all conditions. Now the sons of Adam
do not know the state of things that is to come. For this reason they
fall into many errors. The beasts of the earth, the birds of the heaven,
and the fish of the sea are all under the control of my hands. All
treasure and hidden things are known to me, and as I desire, I take them
from one and bestow them on another. I reveal my wonders to those who
seek them, and in due time my miracles to those who receive them from me
. But those who are without are my adversaries, hence they oppose me.
Nor do they know that such a course is against their own interests, for
might, wealth, and riches are in my hand, and I bestow them upon every
worthy descendant of Adam. Thus, the government of the world, the
transition of generations, and the changes of their directors are
determined by me from the beginning.
I will not give my rights to other gods. I have allowed the creation
of four substances, four times, and four corners, because they are
necessary things for creatures. The books of Jews, Christians, and
Moslems, as those who are without, accept in a sense, so far as they
agree with and conform to, my statutes. Whatsoever is contrary to these
they have altered; do not accept it. Three things are against me, and I
hate three things. But those who keep my secret shall receive the
fulfillment of my promises. It is my desire that all my followers shall
unite in a bond of unity, lest those who are without prevail against
them. Now, then, all ye who have followed my commandments and my
teachings, reject all the teachings and sayings of such as are without. I
have not taught these teachings, nor do they proceed from me. O ye that
have believed in me, honor my symbol and my image, for they remind you
of me. Observe my laws and my statutes. Obey my servants and listen to
whatever they may dictate to you of the hidden things.
I don’t dislike Christians, I dislike Christianity.
I don’t dislike Muslims, I dislike Islam.
I don’t dislike Jews, I dislike Judaism.
Just because I don’t like the religion does not mean I don’t like the people that follow it. There is much more to a person than their religion and it is no excuse to treat someone differently because of it.
Paying the $200 for the official Church of Satan membership is not vital in becoming a Laveyan Satanist. Same as buying the membership does not suddenly make you a satanist.

For a Laveyan satanist to slut shame it is entirely hypocritical. We encourage people to do what they love and to not feel guilty for it. Having casual sex is not something that should be shamed, if that’s their choice it’s THEIR choice. As long as they are not hurting others or themselves in the process, there is no reason someone should be shamed for liking sex.
