is there a group of people who actually worship SATAN (and/or demons)?

there was a question a while back about satanism and how it really isn't the worship of satan, more of a mocking of christianity and indulging in our animal instincts.

but, i think it begs the question, does that mean that no one worships satan? and if so, what is that particular "religion" called?

  • No, I believe that some people actually do worship Satan the entity. I'm not sure what they think he stands for, if he can help them or what, but I know that if you search long enough, you can find a group for almost any absurd thing you think of. LOL.

  • Satanism isn't about mocking Christianity. Whoever said that is an idiot. There are different types of Satanism. Google traditional Satanism and LaVeyan Satanism. Traditional Satanists worship Satan. LaVeyans are more like worshiping the power within themselves (which they believe was given to them by Satan).

  • Yeah, there are, and in many cases they too call themselves Satanists, but it's not the same as the actual Satanist Religion. As with any religion Christianity has it's followers that prefer to go to the "dark" side rather than stay on the straight and narrow...

  • The word "satan" means adversary--and is neither good nor evil. There are some angry christians who choose to rebel against the authority of their parents, and their church, by taking a path they think is the direct opposite of christianity. Satanity. In other words, it's the action of ignorant people. People who THINK they know what satanism is but who haven't bothered to educate themselves. Just as there are naive people who think that being a witch means dressing in black clothes, pointed hats, and wearing goth makeup. They don't understand that being a witch is something you are INSIDE. It's not what you look like, how you act, or whether you have the right wand to wave. It's something you are. Something that comes as easily as breathing or smiling.

  • What Sabrina said. There are those who actually do worship Satan but I believe they are not as common as the Satanists who use Satan as a metaphor for self worship.

    Well you are correct on Traditional Satanist worshipping Satan but their description of him varies greatly from the Christian construct. You are completely wrong on LaVeyan satanists believing anything was given to them by Satan. They don't believe in Satan.

  • There are Luciferians, they worship Lucifer, but they believe he was good, a light barer and that Christianity turned him into an evil entity. So, they do not worship the Christian idea of Satan.

  • If they DO worship "Satan" it sure is a waste of time...there is no "Satan"...that is a creation of mere people who have to have something to blame for their faults and the faults of others who offend them or who commit crimes,etc.
