Or is it, satanists are atheists? In a recent article I just read, there is a custody battle going on between a satanist named Jamie Meyer, and his wife that wants her children to be dropped off at a Christian Church on Sunday so they can attend Church with her.
Meyer is a real winner, with his tattoo showing the "t" in satan's name on his left leg, drawn to look like an upside-down cross. Also, this is Jamie Meyer's second failed marriage. Misty Hoff, his first ex-wife, said he already has alienated his oldest daughter by calling her a hypocrite for her Christian beliefs. What a real man this guy is, Pffft.
But the part that threw me back is what Peter Gilmore, high priest of the Manhattan-based satanism organization said: "Satanism is the world's first carnal religion, Satanists are thus atheists—not devil worshipers—and we see Satan as being a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, not a deity." (emphasis added)
Wow that sure does sound like the definition of modern secular humanism which is cloaked with the buzz word of atheism. My heart and prayers goes out to those poor children that have to put up with this while just trying to grow up. This is why God gave us the wisdom in 2 Corinthians 6:14 "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"
The real twist is that the burden is on the ex-wife to show that the religion of satanism was harmful to the children. Really? Satanism isn't harmful? Ah, American freedom, our forefathers would be proud. Atheism isn't harmful? How about guiding people into the eternal lake of fire. Is that harmful enough for you?
Satanists and atheists, arm in arm together forever, inseparable in that unquenchable fire,(Mark 9:43) outer darkness,(Matthew 22:13) a furnace of fire and a place where people wail and gnash their teeth,(Matthew 13:42) and a lake of fire.(Revelation 20:15) where the worm does not die and the fire is not quenched,(Mark 9:48) and where people are in agony in flames.(Luke 16:24)
Perhaps the most terrifying passage in the Bible describing hell says that men will "drink the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; and they have no rest day and night." (Revelation 14:10-11)
Good luck with all of that atheists, satanists, secular humanists, or whatever you're calling yourselves this week. Please repent before it's too late.
