4‭.‬ If a guest in your lair annoys you‭, ‬treat him cruelly and without mercy‭.‬
5‭.‬ Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal‭.‬
6‭.‬ Do not take‭ ‬that‭ ‬which‭ ‬does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved‭.‬

8‭.‬ Satan represents all these so‭-‬called sins‭, ‬as they all lead to physical‭, ‬mental‭, ‬or emotional gratification‭!‬
9‭.‬ Satan‭ ‬has been the best friend of the church as he has kept it in business all of these years‭!‬

The Nine Satanic Sins

1‭) ‬Stupidity‭ -- ‬The top of the list for Satanic Sins‭. ‬The Cardinal Sin of Satanism‭. ‬It's too bad that stupidity isn't painful‭. ‬Ignorance is one thing‭, ‬but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity‭. ‬It depends on people going along with whatever they are told‭. ‬The media promotes a cultivated stupidity as a posture that is not only acceptable but laudable‭. ‬Satanists must learn to see through‭ ‬the tricks and cannot afford to be stupid‭.‬
2‭) ‬Pretentiousness‭ -- ‬Empty posturing can be most irritating and isn't applying the cardinal rules of Lesser Magic‭. ‬On equal footing with stupidity for what keeps the money in circulation these days‭. ‬Everyone's made to feel like a big shot‭, ‬whether they can come up with the goods or not‭.‬
3‭) ‬Solipsism‭ -- ‬Solipsism can be very dangerous for Satanists‭. ‬Projecting your reactions‭, ‬responses‭, ‬and sensibilities onto someone else who is probably far less attuned that you are‭. ‬It is the mistake of expecting people to give you the same consideration‭, ‬courtesy‭, ‬and respect that you naturally give them‭. ‬They won't‭. ‬Instead Satanists must strive to apply the dictum of‭ "‬Do unto others as they do‭ ‬
onto you‭." ‬It's work for most of‭ ‬us and requires constant vigilance lest you slip into a comfortable illusion of everyone being like you‭. ‬As has been said‭, ‬certain utopias would be ideal in a nation of philosophers‭, ‬but unfortunately‭ (‬or perhaps fortunately‭, ‬from a Machiavellian viewpoint‭) ‬we are from that point‭.‬
4‭) ‬Self-Deciet‭ -- ‬It's in the Nine Satanic Statement but deserves to be repeated here‭. ‬Another cardinal sin‭. ‬We must not pay homage to any of the sacred cows presented to us‭, ‬including the roles we are expected to play ourselves‭. ‬The only time self-deceit should be entered is when it is fun‭,…
