By Steven Bancarz| There are few people that have lived on earth that have been more passionate about Satanism and the occult than Anton Levay.
He has been called “The Black Pope” and the “Father of Satanism” because he is the one who founded the Church of Satan and brought it to the Western world as an organized religion.
He is the author of the Satanic Bible, along with four other ‘classic’ Satanic books teaching people everything from basic satanic principles to satanic magic. He also has an extensive background in the occult.
In fact, he was the founder of the Order of the Trapezoid where he used to give presentations on the occult and paranormal research, which he later decided to turn into the Church of Satan. So the Church of Satan was birthed out of his interest and affiliation with the occult.
Anton Levay on the New Age
After becoming a Christian and digging deeper into the New Age, I went out and bought the Satanic Bible for research purposes (which I since thrown out) and gave it a quick read. I was amazed as how many parallels there were between the New Age and Satanic ritual and philosophy. It just sounded like a slightly darker version of the exact same topics.
The Age of Aquarias, the five elements and the pentagram, Lucifer as the personification of enlightenment, Thoth, God is man and man is God, spirit guides, pantheism, sensual indulgence, spiritual rebirth through studying the “mysteries”, the All Seing Eye, being your own redeemer and saviour through ‘enlightenment’.
I was amazed to find out that the New Age is no different from Luciferian and Satanic philosophy coming straight from the Satanic Bible itself. I will continue to pull together research proving that each of these topics are Satanic, but it was nice to know that Anton Levay did some of the work for me by making a passive aggressive remark about how the New Age stole the devil’s religion:
“In the scores of books lining the shelves of New Age bookstores, there are instructions for guided meditation, creative visualizations, out of body experiences, getting in touch with your spirit guides, fortune telling by cards, crystal balls or the stars. What if Satanists reclaimed these for their own dark purposes and integrated them into rituals dedicated to the Devil, where they rightfully belong? New Agers have freely drawn upon all manner of Satanic material, adapting it to their own hypocritical purposes… But in truth, all ‘New Age’ labeling is, again, trying to play the Devil’s game without using His Infernal name. ” —Anton LaVey, quoted in Church of Satan, B. Barton, p.107
So according to a lifetime occultist and the founder of Satanism, the New Age is just a relabeling Satanism without having to use the name of Satan and New Age practices should be reclaimed by Satanists and dedicated to the Devil to whom they belong. Why would he say this?
What the New Age does is mix in Satanic occultic practices with a message of love, unity, self-help, self-esteem, and positivity. This turns Satanism into something morally appealing enough to be digested by the soft-hearted and captivating enough to be explored by anyone who is genuinely looking for a deeper meaning in life.
And this is not simply me quoting one guy and being a sensationalist. As we will read below, the entire New Age movement was founded by a 32nd degree freemason and a Theistic Satanist who praised Satan as being God.
The whole New Age movement was founded by a Theistic Satanist
Helena Blavatsky has been called the “Mother of the New Age”. She is an occultist and spiritualist from the 19th century who founded the Theosophical Society which was “an unsecterian body of seekers after Truth, who endeavour to promote Brotherhood and strive to serve humanity.” This sounds a little bit like the New Age.
As New Religious Movements research specialist from the University of California Dr. J. Gordon Melton said: “No single organization or movement has contributed so many components to the New Age Movement as the Theosophical Society… It has been the major force in the dissemination of occult literature in the West in the twentieth century.” ( New Age Encyclopedia 1990, pp. 458–461.)
He has also said “… Madame Blavatsky … stands out as the fountainhead of modern occult thought, and was either the originator and/or popularizer of many of the ideas and terms which have a century later been assembled within the New Age Movement. The Theosophical Society, which she cofounded, has been the major advocate of occult philosophy in the West and the single most important avenue of Eastern teaching to the West.”- Gordon Melton, Jerome Clark and Aidan A. Kelly, editors, New Age Almanac, Detroit,
Michigan, Gale Research Inc., 1991, p. 16.
Theosophy, according to Wikipedia, “refers to systems of esoteric philosophy concerning, or seeking direct knowledge of, presumed mysteries of being and nature, particularly concerning the nature of divinity. Theosophy is considered a part of the broader field of esotericism, referring to hidden knowledge or wisdom that offers the individual enlightenment and salvation.” The society taught everything you could possibly imagine that could fall under the umbrella of the New Age.
Lumerians, Ascended Masters, Ancient Egypt, Hermeticism, Hinduism, mysticism, scientism, astrology, sacred math, enlightenment, spiritualism, chakras, Atlantis, and every other New Age topic was taught by her and was promoted the society she started. Between 1887 and 1997, over 2800 journals were published in the Theosophical magazine she started called Lucifer:
And no, Lucifer is not used here as a metaphor. The New Age founder was literally a Luciferian and a Satanist in the most literal sense and taught this as an essential ingredient in her philosophy.
Helena Blavatsky quotes praising Satan
Here are some direct quotes from volume II of her book The Secret Doctrine, It is considered to be a classic work in esotericism and is noted as being responsible for bringing occultic ancient wisdom to the Western world. Please take the time to read these:
“Satan is the ‘Anointed Cherub’ of old. . . . God created Satan, the fairest and wisest of all his creatures in this part of His Universe, and made him Prince of the World, and of the Power of the Air…Thus, Satan being perfect in wisdom, and beauty, His vast empire is our earth, if not the whole solar system. . . . Certainly no other angelic power of greater or even equal dignity has been revealed to us.” (p. 229)
“Stand in awe of him, and sin not; speak his name with trembling . . . . For Satan is the magistrate of the justice of God (Karma); he beareth the balance and the sword . . . . For to him are committed Weight and Measure and Number.” and “It is “Satan who is the god of our planet and the only god,” and this without any allusive metaphor to its wickedness and depravity. For he is one with the Logos, “the first son, eldest of the gods,” (p.234)
“The glory of Satan is the shadow of the Lord”: God in the manifested world; “the throne of Satan is the footstool of Adonai” — that footstool being the whole Kosmos. (Vide Part II., “Is Pleroma Satan’s Lair?”) When the Church, therefore, curses Satan, it curses the cosmic reflection of God; it anathematizes God made manifest in matter or in the objective; it maledicts God, or the ever-incomprehensible Wisdom, revealing itself as Light and Shadow, good and evil in nature, in the only manner comprehensible to the limited intellect of Man. This is the true philosophical and metaphysical interpretation of Samael, or Satan” (p.235)
“But Satan will now be shown, in the teaching of the Secret Doctrine, allegorized as Good, and Sacrifice, a God of Wisdom, under different names.” (p.237)
“In this case it is but natural — even from the dead letter standpoint — to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light,” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: “in the day ye eat thereof ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil” — can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour.” (p.243)
All of those quotes can be read directly from The Secret Doctrine right here.
More Satanic quotes from The Secret Doctrine
“Satan, the enemy of God, is in reality, the highest divine Spirit” (p.377)
“The “Serpent,” moreover, is not Satan, but the bright Angel, one of the Elohim clothed in radiance and glory, who, promising the woman that if they ate of the forbidden fruit “ye shall not surely die,” kept his promise, and made man immortal in his incorruptible nature. ” (p.388)
“the greatest of modern Kabalists, namely Eliphas Levi, describes Satan in the following glowing terms: — “It is that Angel who was proud enough to believe himself God; brave enough to buy his independence at the price of eternal suffering and torture; beautiful enough to have adored himself in full divine light; strong enough to reign in darkness amidst agony, and to have built himself a throne on his inextinguishable pyre. It is the Satan of the Republican and heretical Milton. . . . . the prince of anarchy, served by a hierarchy of pure Spirits” (p. 507-508)
“Lucifer is divine and terrestrial light, the “Holy Ghost” and “Satan,” at one and the same time, visible Space being truly filled with the differentiated Breath invisibly; and the Astral Light” (p.513)
“And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the “Lord of Phosphorus” (brimstone was a theological improvement), and Lucifer, or “Light-Bearer,” is in us: it is our Mind — our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Saviour from pure animalism.” (p.513)
“For since the Logos (or God) is the aggregate of that once divine Host accused of having fallen, it would follow that the Logos and Satan are one.” (p.515)
In Volume II over her book, well over 100 references to Satan were made to either glorify him or paint him to be some kind of a victim of Christian dogma. He is spoke of as a bringer of light and truth, and she literally equates him with being God, the Logos, and the Holy Ghost. Is this not concerning to some people? She has arguably had the largest influence over the New Age out of anybody else in history, and she is openly praising Satan as the creator of mankind and the Saviour of humanity.
What do her and Anton Levay know about the occult that we don’t?
Aliester Crowley & New Ageism
Crowley was a famous occultist, 33rd degree freemason, and satanist from the 1900s. He referred to himself as “The Beast 666” and once said ““I was not content to just believe in Satan, I wanted to be his chief of staff”. He has openly admitted to making blood sacrifice to demons, which he believed jumpstarted his success with magic.
The A∴A∴ is a spiritual organization founded in 1907 by Crowley. Its members are dedicated to scientific illumination by perfection of the individual on every plane through a graded series of universal initiations. Students would enter the order and then master certain occultic tasks and learn esoteric wisdom in order to graduate to the next level. If you were to be initiated in the order of AA, here are some of the things you would learn about:
Astral Projection. Hinduism. Qabala. Yoga. Magick. Non-duality. Ascended Masters (Secret Chiefs). Tree of Life. Transcendental Meditation. Higher Selves. Buddhism. Mysticism. Gnosticism. Sorcery. Rituals of the Pentagram and Hexagram. Tarot Cards. The Zodiac.
After being involved in the occult for over half a century and dedicating his entire life to magick, enlightenment, the spiritual mysteries, and the occult, he left this world a broke drug addict with the final words:”I am perplexed…Satan, get out”.
With all due respect, do we actually think that he was just a few more New Age topics away from finding the truth and leaving this world in peace? Maybe if he would have channeled the Pleadians instead of his Higher Self, or if he hadn’t have left the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn so soon?
He is the most famous occultist who ever lived and was a huge influence to the New Age, and he left this world totally confused with Satan breathing over his shoulder. Others say his last words were just “I am perplexed” along with “Sometimes I hate myself”. Being a master practitioner of these topics clearly did him no good in the end.
The “Joy of Satan Ministries” teaches New Ageism
If you want to become the most educated and “enlightened” in subjects discussed in the New Age, you don’t have to go to a local bookstore. All you have to do is visit Joy of Satan Ministries and you can learn about the following topics in full detail:
Astrology, auras, magick, self-hypnosis, incense, pendulums, runes, telekinesis, brain waves, clairvoyance, past lives, chanting, the pineal gland and the third eye, the chakras, bioelectric technology, the astral plane, spells, the Kundalini serpent, and trance. And you can learn all of these from their witchcraft index, their information about the human mind, and their index of Satanic meditations. Why would the Joy of Satan teach these things unless they were consistent with spiritual Satanism?
In addition to these topics, you can also learn about how Satan is the one true God and is the one who brought spiritual knowledge to man, just like Helena Blavatsky taught.
Tying it all together
When people get involved in the New Age, they are fed a wide range of occultic topics that they know very little about. And because they don’t know anything about these topics, they believe them out of ignorance because they are accompanied alongside a message of unity and love.
But when we look at each of these topics individually and do research on their origins, (which is the mission of this website), we see that they are not only false and untrue but extremely dangerous and even demonic. And in fact, the entire New Age movement has been accused of stealing it’s topics from Satanism by the founder of the Church of Satan himself.
Furthermore, the person who has had the largest influence on the New Age out of anyone else in history was an avid Luciferian and Satanist who mentions Satan in glorifying terms over 150 times in her main work. Crowley followed in her footsteps teaching many of the topics the New Age teaches alongside a Luciferian message, and the Joy of Satan ministries to this day teaches every New Age topic under the sun.
These people knew the topics of the occult better than anyone reading this right now, and dedicated their entire lives to studying it. They all came to the same conclusion. What if they are right? Here is a video going more in depth:
The New Age is just spiritual Satanism repackaged in a box of social morality, wrapped in wrapping paper of unity and social progress, and topped off with a bow of love and tolerance. It is spiritual principles of Satanism mixed in with an appealing heart-centered moral system where Satan gets replaced with the psychologically therapeutic imaginary idea of “Source”.
But all of the actual subjects in the New Age that have to do with occultic and spiritual matters have their roots in Luciferian philosophy. Just because the New Age sprinkles in a self-esteem message and endorses an appealing standard of social morality does not mean that the New Age subjects themselves are not essentially Satanic.
But don’t just take my word for it. Take it from the founder of the whole New Age movement and the founder of the Church of Satan himself.
