Satan Is The Self God

Satan Is The Self God Cover “To the Satanist, he is his own God. Satan is a symbol of Man living as his prideful, carnal nature dictates. [...] Satan is not a conscious entity to be worshipped, rather it is a name for the reservoir of power inside each human to be tapped at will.”

"The Satanic Scriptures" by Peter Gilmore11

In my words:

“People create gods in their own image according to their own desires. Gods are our creations. Within organized religion, people's opinion on their "god" is always individual and subjective but merely uses the terminology of their religion to describe their own god.

Outside of religion, people come up with their own terminology to describe "Gaia", Pantheism, Paganism, monotheism... depending on a person's will and need they search out gods that closely match what they themselves want. Gods are created according to our needs.

If a real God does exist, then we cannot perceive it. We can only perceive ourselves and our own expectations projected into the heavens. It is our own sense of ego that we feel from god. It is our own pride that makes us think we know the truth. God is the individual, and each individual may as well be his own god.”

"Masters Of Existence: Subjectivism and Self Worship in Satanism"
Vexen Crabtree (1999)

“The first and second Book of Lucifer in The Satanic Bible expands on this idea greatly. Between religions and within religions, people have their own personal idea of what god is. Each individual has created their own god, in accordance with their own imagination and experience, and such a god is purely a Projection of the ego. "Man has always created his gods, rather than his gods creating him" (The Satanic Bible: part of Book of Lucifer 1:1). The logical philosophy of god is that it is only ever a reflection of the self: That there is no Universal god, that each of us is both his own god and redeemer. For Satanists, this state of affairs is represented by Satan, as a symbol of the prideful ego, rather than God, a symbol of homocentricity and all of its errors.”
