I think that since the introduction of Christianity into our part of the world a lot of things have been either fluffy-bunnified or dragonified. The world became that much more easy to deal with becasue things were black and white, either good or bad. God was good and that gave us hope, and the devil was bad and that was why this life was perfect...
Even things like phooka have been classified as purely bad and evil, despite stories of certain phooka keeping members of their households from swearing and womanizing and insisting in leading in the lords prayer.
Personally I think that if you do a ritual which you believe will have an effect without considering the wider consequences for those around you... then you aren't a very nice person. If on the spur of the moment you hurl a curse at someone because they severely wronged you- then you are only human and have every right to you all the power at your command (you must also be aware though, and prepared for the consequences of your actions). I think I have something against premeditated selfish acts though, that are thought through to profit oneself above others, without a care for the damage it does to others.
I was wondering does the term "for every action their is an equal and opposite reaction" apply to things like magic?
only if that were so, then by doing "bad things" we'd be increasing the amount of "good things" the world did back... does that makes sense??
The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.Sonnet XCIVBut if that flower with base infection meet,The basest weed outbraves his dignity:For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds

I only agree that self-satisfying magick could hinder a person when it's ALL they do. A spell here and there to promote some sort of selfish agenda isn't an all together bad thing. I'm a firm believer that you can't do for others without first doing for yourself. Then again, I'm selfish and lazy. lol

And hey, where's that Belial dude?? And here I was, eagerly awaiting to see what he'd share on his subject of 'human sacrifices!' (God, I crack myself UP! ;D)

A sacrifice of an animal is used as an offering to our Lord. When one dose there pact with Satan at times they are required to do a sacrifice upon our Lord to prove there faith upon our Lord. But yet not all sacrifices don't include of a killing, depends what sacrifice you tend to offer him, but has to come from the heart. Satanism to me is what I have become to learn is my life and as followers of Traditional Satanists they are my Family. I got a site on yahoo groups called Ministery of Satan, there you will find Black Magic, VooDoo, Moon Magic, and a little bit of everything. Satanism is letting your self lose from the strings that god has one on, it is all about being free and not being afraid you will mess up or be punished.

Well do I think I will punished 4 what I believe? well no not really cause to me how can I be punished 4 being a Satanist? not trying to be a smartbuta if I believe in jesus or his father and did such acts guess I would be punished but don't much believe in him. I was born and raised Catholic but as a child I always had a hatred 4 god why? that I do not know thats why I say I was born into Satanism, guess just them certain Black Sheep. When death comes across we will be in our Kingdom to yall it's called Hell guess you can say it is our satanic Heaven. Guess you can say it is the christian, baptist, catholics, and so forth Satan whom I worship as my Lord. Glad to be of help, but gotta watch what I say cause am not very welcomed here (evil grin)

Okay, so you don't care for the worship of Jesus.... but do you believe that he's the son of God? It would stand to reason that if you believe in Satan, Jesus is the logical balance to that equation, since they are both constructs of Christianity. Thanks for answering my questions... sometimes I tend to ask a lot.
