How do you oath yourself to Lucifer?

This question has been asked of me quite a few times.

The simple answer, often the answer that those posing the question don’t want to hear, is: You don’t. The greatest oath you can make is a vow not to bind yourself to him.

Regardless of whether you’re approaching Lucifer and Luciferianism through atheism, theism, or agnosticism, there are a couple different reasons why being oathbound would prove to be a problem.

The first would be the goal of apotheosis. If you are seeking to become your own god, why would you make a vow to follow another god for the rest of your days? Even if you are only seeing him as a means of support for your own growth, the goal is to not need that support.

Additionally, depending on your level of faithfulness to keeping that oath, it may later prove to be a self-imposed restriction on your own free will—a restriction that Lucifer as a god would not want in the first place.

You should ask yourself, what is the point of making an oath to a god of change, a god who finds beauty in the ephemeral? What use would a sworn oath be to a god who recoils from absolute fealty and worship directed towards him?

Even if you did make an oath, he would find a way to make you go back on your word, along with the faith that fueled its initiation. As Adversary and Destroyer, it is what he does best. He will make you question all that you thought you loved about him, all that you held dear, because a resolve to remain steadfast and loyal to him as you believe him to be is a resolve to never embrace change or doubt, a resolve to be stagnant in your faith.

Take it from someone who once made such a vow—the only acceptable binding oath made to him is a broken one.

    Very interesting. It makes sense that you wouldn’t bind yourself to him. But couldnt he just bind you to him?

    • For a god who upholds free will to the highest extent, that would go against everything he stands for.

      • Isaac Alsop says:

        What if he really doesn’t?

      • If Lucifer doesn’t support free will, then clearly he’s done an awful job sticking to and communicating his beliefs, considering that is one of the critical ideals within Luciferianism.

      • Isaac Alsop says:

        I understand that, but I mean what if he is deceiving you? Why should you trust what he says he is for?

      • What would be the purpose in being deceptive about his stance on free will?

        On the one hand, if Lucifer is the fallen angel who rebelled against God, not supporting free will would mean he doesn’t support the very force that allowed him to rebel in the first place.

        Additionally, if he supports it for himself but not for humanity, allowing us to believe and fight for our own free will gives us the tools to work against him, so to speak. It doesn’t seem very logical to be deceptive in order to promote the very thing that would give us power over him, does it?

        If, on the other hand, Lucifer is in the role of satan, wherein he acts as divine prosecutor and adversary to mankind in order to test their faith, it again doesn’t quite make sense why he would deceptively promote free will. Not having free will would mean that our actions are preordained, that our acts of evil do in fact stem from God and not ourselves. Free will allows us to make the choice to obey god, which in itself is worth more than being forced to obey (or not).

        As for why I should trust him–he has given me no reason thus far not to trust him.
