On Saturday, the Satanic Temple of Los Angeles held their biggest event ever: a massive satanic mass, complete with a live bloodletting ritual. The purpose of the mass, according to the Satanic Temple’s website, was “to inspire personal and societal liberation.”
A Satanic invocation included a statement of principals of the Satanic Temple (aka the Seven Tenets), included a call to question everything, a call to stand up against racial and gender inequality, and ended with chants of “Hail Satan.”
Unquestionably, some of the people who attended the event did so out of curiosity or for entertainment…but others in attendance take their practice of Satanism seriously.
“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:3
and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.
2 Timothy 2:26
But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
2 Thessalonians 3:3
in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
2 Corinthians 4:4
