Satanism, Luciferianism, and evil in general flourish under the cover of religion, and as the nature of hierarchy in institutional rule limits access to positions of organizational power, the modality of negative intent first builds its presence as an infestation, beginning at the top and often dating back to the power structure’s formation.
To accomplish this a cosmogony and way of living directly opposite to the ideals espoused by a targeted religion is structured into a paradigm that justifies “Satan’s actual hand in the religion’s founding”, with proof ostensibly offered in a secret understanding of the teachings the “world can’t handle but are undeniably true”.
Here is the version of a canonical teaching peculiar to Roman Catholicism Satanists and Luciferians use to explain the reason they are known in public as Catholics (it works for any Christian denomination):
(1) Jesus was indeed tempted by Satan before his crucifixion but it was not explained accurately by the church. Satan proved to Jesus that beyond any doubt He owned the planet – it is only here by his command – and Jesus displayed unmeasurable bravery by accepting whatever post Satan would offer him in return for Jesus’ commitment, which was supposedly demonstrated in his “dying in and for Satan” at his crucifixion.
(2) Jesus was in a sense no different from his followers, they were all doing the same thing but Jesus said the most about it and Satan made clear, “this is no trick – anyone else who agrees gets the same deal”. Satan apparently had some mysterious use for what Jesus had done up to when Satan decided to offer the deal, but showing the actual wisdom Jesus possessed, he was the only one of his people who agreed (to this level of supposed commitment to Satan).
(3) Judas became a part of the plan, agreeing to spread the conspiracy which would become the reason Jesus had to die in return for silver, and this part of the teaching secretly explains the establishment of Luciferianism – embodied in the act of a lesser but still “very important, powerful and useful man” who agreed to lie on behalf of Satan and his plan for Jesus – his chosen.
–With this as their central belief system, the Vatican’s brand of Catholic Satanism and Luciferianism was born and it indeed predates the establishment of the Roman Catholic Empire so it is considered (especially to evil people “in the know”) a fundamental contribution to how the traditions of Roman Catholicism have evolved since the religion’s beginning. The term “Roman Catholic Empire”, and not “Holy Roman Empire” speaks more accurately to the Roman Catholic tradition’s history. When it comes to pre-Vatican Roman Catholicism, the church was a warring empire; the term better also (therefore) does more to address the church’s “founding” Satanic interest.
Persistent, too-easily dismissed allegations are impossible to access absent a sound starting point. Using this satanic version of the Roman Catholic canon, the long standing evidence of not just sexual abuse against children, but also a claimed Vatican-run mind control program specifically designed to produce serial killers, meant to be let loose on the world in regular cycles, doesn’t so much begin to make sense – taking evil for the threat it truly entails, “Satan’s” interests are served by placing and securing evil in the institutional authority of the church, because whatever act required is allowed in a setting that makes it unlikely the evil will ever be known. In terms of a war to end evil – which is the charge of every Christian regardless of their denomination – on these grounds, a Catholic/Christian Gnostic is “at war” with the Vatican.
Gnostics of any type meditate a lot and keep quiet, and for the Christian Gnostic, this is their reason to remain silent.
