  17. 17. Nine Satanic Statements The from The Satanic Bible by(unofficial) Humanist Manifesto Anton LaVey  Seek indulgence  Seek vengeance instead of instead of abstinence turning the other cheek  Seek vital existence  Seek to blot out any slavery to guilt and assign instead of spiritual pipe responsibility to the dreams responsible  Seek undefiled wisdom  Embrace the vicious instead of hypocritical animal that man is from self-deceit within  Seek awareness of the  Seek those deserving of flesh kindness instead of  Remember: Satan is, in wasting love on fact, the best friend of the ingrates church. ©2009 Oak B rook Produ cti o ns – All Ri ghts Reserved
  18. 18. In Closing  Resist the bait and switch concepts of evil that Satan is peddling. Evil is not always in a red suit.  A counterfeit truth is far more dangerous than a contradictory one. Contradictory truths spawn conversation; counterfeit truths spawn a dense darkness.  Realize that evil is rarely relative when it comes to the innate moral compass within humans.  An awareness of evil is important to find the subtle messages that are the most damaging. ©2009 Oak B rook Produ cti o ns – All Ri ghts Reserved
