Jacob McKelvy. Haha.
What a funny little anecdote.
Thought the Greater Church of Lucifer is not affiliated with any Satanic current, and my knowledge of Luciferianism is quite limited, I can only say that I find the whole situation worth a giggle.
Long story short, Mr. McKelvy was a GCOL leader, he then was found out to steal from the organisation’s resources and kicked out. He then resurfaced as a born again Christian and is probably using that to commit fraud elsewhere.
For me, his actions were completely Satanic. He wanted money, he got it, when he could no longer get it, he just went to another source.
One of the most literal fundamental principles of the LHP is that the individual uses the group to attain its goals (as opposed to the group using the individual as a puppet for their system, like in the RHP). I feel rather disappointed that this needs to happen in order to remind some LHPers some fundamental rules of life: Trust no one other than yourself and if you are fucked over, you were either weak or you let them do it.
People are assholes, and that’s human nature, to get what we want any way we can.
GCOL members or sympathisers, I invite you to reflect on this question: Is the organisation serving you? Or are you serving the organisation?
If you feel like a victim, you might want to reconsider being part of the LHP. This is the path of the strong. Of those who survive and prevail. Not those who are duped by some born again pseudo Luciferian.
There is a certain connotation of immobility to the concept of Balance. When we say someone is balanced we are struck with an image of perfect equilibrium, of a sphere perfectly balanced atop a needle.
For me, this characteristic is anti-satanic.
The Satanist is in an eternal state of oscillation. He changes and adapts, he moves and relocates himself in order to adapt to the never ending chaos that is existence. Balance only works in a balanced world. Alas, our world isn’t.
Our world is ever changing. It moves chaotically and erratically according to an infinity of variables, well beyond our measurement. And since we cannot predict the changes of our world, the best we can do is become masters of our oscillation. The laws of nature proved to us that it is the creature that adapts the fastest and best to its ever-changing environment, that lives the longest and survives to further evolve.
The Satanist should strive to be that perfect being of nature. Unfazed by the chaos around him, he should swiftly adapt to its new environment, and make it his once again, until nature tests him once again.
Satanists are oscillators, not balancists.
