Good Wolf, I encourage you to Apostatise from whatever church or cathedral you have been involved with, in writing. This will not only give you a sense of confidence, it will prevent the church from using you in the statistics. This lessens the influence of the church. And yes, I have apostacised in writing as well.
Now here comes an even more shocking Bible realization: the name "Lucifer" (another name for Satan) means light bearer, or morning star. On the very last page of the Bible Jesus reveals himself and provides the amazing kicker ending of the entire "Holy" Bible: I am the root and offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.-Revelation 22:16 And the very last words of Jesus in the Bible, makes it the greatest and longest-lived lie of all time (something only a devil would say): Surely, I come quickly.-Revelation 22:20 Perhaps the reader will now understand why some Satanist cults use the same Bible as the Christians. Note: The idea of the name Lucifer as synonymous with Satan goes back for centuries. In Isaiah 14:12, St. Jerome, translated the Hebrew word for "morning star" into the Latin term "Lucifer" (light bearer), a name commonly ascribed to Satan by Christians, and represents the fallen star, an ancient symbol for the fallen or evil one. In the NRSV Bible version, Isaiah 14:12 describes the fallen as "O Day Star, son of Dawn!" The Day Star, or morning star actually refers to the planet Venus, although, of course, the ancients did not know about planets. Venus always appears low on the horizon and the ancients thought of it as a star fallen from heaven (fallen angel). Venus also appears as the brightest "star" in the sky, thus the reference to the "bright and morning star" in Rev. 22:16. Although the Isaiah verse describes the fallen king of Babylon, Christians have, for centuries, ascribed Satan as taking many forms (for example the serpent). Thus, a conclusion, based on Christian beliefs of Satan, and the belief in the "inerrancy" of the Bible, one must conclude that Jesus has revealed himself as Satan!
"God loves you Jesus died for your sins... blah blah blah" I know all that! What new material can you bring to the table to justify swallowing all that bollocks?!
19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him;
20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

According to the anti-Christ bible God is the devil and Satan is the Lord.
There is a hint that Satan is not the wicked one in the bible. Notice in Revelation 13 Who made war "with" the saints? "With" is not "against".
62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

I'm desperately looking for the answer to two questions:
1) Does a God(s) exist? and,
2) Is there an afterlife?
