I'm not going to go bashing Christianity, Islam, or any other organised religion, it's not the fault of the followers.
I will say that everyone following their so called "Occult practices" why do you put so much of your faith, following what is written in books? you
cant learn the powers of Nature from a book, all books give, are other peoples opinions, experiences, thoughts, and conclusions after research, what
they don't give you are the main tools , those tools begin with you, your inner self, and you can only find what you need through you, by searching
and exploring, not following words written by another.
Books can be used as guide to what you seek, but are far from giving you the answers, and those answers are inside, you just need to learn how to read
them, and then what to do with them.
As for Occultists being branded as Satanists, well go and do some research, the Occult as it is being labelled here, came long long before Satanism
ever had something to give it it's own label, ie Satan, a name manufactured to bestow fear and keep you under control, if you don't follow their
rules then you will burn in Hell, doesn't sound very God like to me, Gods are supposed to be all forgiving, and Loving, condemning you to eternal
suffering well it speaks for itself IMO.
As a Pagan, Satan means nothing to me, has no part in my faith, I am neither afraid of him hurting me or offering me accommodation for feeling guilty
about anything, as for Hell, where have I been living all these years?
