Your still giving multiple choice here which indicates the greatest lie does it not?

Maybe I am reading this wrong but it seems clear to me.

Also the paradox you are suggesting is a loop that endlessly feeds back into itself.

If satan doesn't exist then god does not, if satan exists then god exists.

If both are in fact created to control your mind then we have an ouroboros in play.

Actually, Satan represents Man. What is called satan is merely the human subconscious or shadow of the psyche. Clean the inside of the cup and the whole cup will be clean. Satanism is about self-knowledge and personal responsibility, not adhering to the status quo, thinking out of the box and asking questions.

Re: Multiple choice: The greatest lie that Satan promotes: What would you choose?
That Jehovah's witnesses aren't Satanic.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 56189843


Honorable mention, lol, although it is a part of my write in answer.

In reality, none of the above.

I think the most effective lie Satan continues to tell, and the christian "church" has been promoting for the last 200 years, is straight out of the Garden of Eden.

My vote would be a write in: The Greatest Lie is that something/someone OTHER than the Lord can be equal or above the Lord.

In humanity's case, going all the way back to Eden, that women should be worshipped ABOVE the Lord. Which of course highlights the JW and Mormons in the modern era, as well as pretty much all the 'christian' church, and of course modern Muslims.

It is the Greatest Lie, because it works so very well. It worked in Eden. It worked on David, a man after God's own heart. It's at work today.

It took the Son of Man telling Peter "get behind Me, Satan" to show how a person is supposed to submit to the Lord's will OVER someone trying to be above the Lord. Contrast what Adam let Eve do to him, against what Peter TRIED but FAILED to do to Jesus, in getting Jesus to not go to Jerusalem.

The Bible says Eve was the first to eat, and it also says Eve was the first to be deceived, and yet the NT says sin entered the world thru Adam. God told us what Adam did, that Eve did not do first, to bring sin into the world. God said Adam "listened to the voice of [his] wife". Adam put Eve above the Lord and in so doing destroyed Eden.

Lot and Lot's wife might be a decent example of what may have happened if Adam didn't go down to sheol like an ox to the slaughter. Maybe God would have taken her out and replaced her. In fact, Lilith from the Jewish accounts had to be destroyed because she was so rebellious and uncontrollable, lol.

What is interesting is that the Bible tells us the truth when it says a chaste and respectful woman can win a rebellious man to the Lord - as women were made for men's sake, as the Bible specifically says.

The Bible also says that a man CANNOT bring a woman to the Lord, as he who can control a rebellious woman "restrains the wind and grasps oil with his right hand".

This is why those above religions, of which I have spent too much time in and amongst, have to make dipshit rules about what women can and cannot do, stupidly thinking those rules will even make a difference. The very reason they make those rules to begin with is solely because their women "refuse and rebel" so viciously, as Isaiah says. The only thing that comes of it is violence, chaos, civil unrest and constant savagery and tribalism, again as Isaiah says.

Women want to be worshipped. This is WHY the Bible makes specific warnings to women to dress modestly and be quiet in church, because for some reason their nature is predisposed to want to be worshipped.

I think Satan has sold a more succinct form of the Greatest Lie as: "women are better than God"

As Edward Gibbon pointed out in his Decline and Fall, the feminizing influence of the church destroyed ancient Rome, and seeing what destruction that the feminized American christian church has wrought on our nation over the last 200 years, I believe it. It culminated in Prohibition and the 19th Amendment. Utter disaster.

"Women are better than God" is the greatest lie because it has always worked, and always will work. The Sumerians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Garden of Eden, Constantinople, the Byzantines, modern Islam, the Russians, and now the USA all bought it, and all were destroyed because of it.

Marx and Engels were the ones who wrote it down and since they were trained "christians" too, I think Satan has proven this lie is the greatest.

Satan is a very clever bastard.

Well Anton La Vey was right when he said "the devil is the greatest friend the church ever had, for it is he who has kept it in power all these years"

(By the way, how can one be a "Satanist" and not believe Satan is a being????)

Most Satanists don't believe in a literal Satan. Like I said, Satan is more of a metaphor for the subconscious or shadow of the psyche.

Well, that makes no sense, that would be like people who believe in God to not believe in a literal God

I think Satan has the "Satanists" more confused than they know

Christ Jesus had a conversation with Satan, he IS real
 Quoting: CelestialMaiden


Why is there a need for a satan? Humanity is more than capable of carrying out its own atrocities.....why? Because they don't know themselves. Hence, Satan is that Shadow aspect. When we say or do something and wonder why we did it...that's the Shadow at work. If we sought to know ourselves and embrace all the parts of ourselves we hate, disown, deny, and reject...we would achieve wholeness. Religion has split our psyches.

Also, the name Satan, merely means Adversary. Satanists view themselves as the adversary to the status quo/herd mentality.
