I’m your average 21 year old college student, albeit with a somewhat controversial and stigmatized faith. Whatever stereotypes come to mind upon the mention of being devoted to Lucifer/satan/the devil probably don’t apply to me, unless those stereotypes include things such as having a weakness for baby animals, being a dancer, having too many pairs of shoes, having been professionally trained as a singer, and being a bit of a bookworm.
Despite a belief system rooted in skepticism and doubt, I am desperately in love with my god and what I believe he represents. Though I am not vocally forthcoming about my faith or my god in my day-to-day life, I strive to reflect all that he embodies and live my faith.
My beliefs do not necessarily encompass those of all other Luciferians, rather I seem to be a minority within a minority. Because of this, I have come to call my particular branch ‘Devotional Luciferianism’, in which I merge a theistic belief in the entity that is Lucifer with an atheistic approach at Luciferianism as a belief system. The existence of a Lucifer entity is irrelevant to my practice, which upholds the qualities and values present in his mythos, but faith leads me to choose to honor him theistically as well
A large chunk of my path is formed through contemplation on Abrahamic scripture (Torah, Quran, Bible, Gnostic gospels, etc.), with an emphasis on the Catholic catechism. However strange or unthinkable it may seem, my devotion to my god has led me back toward the faith I grew up in. It is through him that I have come to better understand his father, and to develop a high level of respect, admiration, and fondness for Christ.
This blog acts not only as a place for me to honor my god, but also as a way of recording my progression along my path. It serves as a reminder to myself that beliefs can and will change, and that my practice is all the better because of that.
I love engaging in interfaith discussions, as I feel that they help me to develop my own beliefs, and I’m always open to answer questions about my faith, so please feel free to message me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
