  1. devil-worship

    Theistic Satanism, otherwise referred to as religious Satanism, spiritual Satanism, or traditional Satanism, is an umbrella term for religious groups that consider Satan, the Devil, or Lucifer to objectively exist as a deity, supernatural entity, or spiritual being worthy of worship and supplication, whom individuals may contact, convene with, and even praise. (In contrast to the atheistic archetype, metaphor, or symbol found in LaVeyan Satanism or The Satanic Temple.) The individuals and organizations who uphold theistic Satanic beliefs are most often very small, loosely affiliated, or independent groups and cabals, which have largely self-marginalized. Another prominent characteristic of theistic Satanism is the use of various types of magic. Most theistic Satanic groups exist in relatively new models and ideologies, many of which are independent of the Abrahamic religions.


  1. devil-worship

    Devil-worship generally refers to the spiritual or religious worship, veneration, or reverence of the devil or other associated demonic entities, often as a direct opposition to mainstream religions which typically regard such entities as evil. This form of worship can occur within various religious, occult, or satanic groups and may incorporate rituals, ceremonies, or practices aimed at seeking power, knowledge, or favor from such entities. It's important to note that the understanding and interpretation of what constitutes 'devil-worship' can vary greatly depending on cultural, religious, and historical contexts.
