Hey everybody, thanks for joining me for this episode. Before I get started on the main topic today I want to make a few announcements. I wanted to let everybody know that we do now have transcripts for episodes 11 through 15 and we should have transcripts for all episodes hereafter so if you’re interested in that they’ll be available at my website at RJWomack.com. And I also wanted to let everybody know that even though I don’t always respond to email or Facebook messages, I do listen to your suggestions and I do take on board what you say. And I’m going to be implementing some of those things shortly. So I just wanted to let you know that I may not always respond but I do appreciate your feedback and I do listen to it.
There’s also one other thing I’d like to mention. I’d like to take a moment to recognize those people who are active duty military or who have served in the military who also happen to be Satanists. I meant to do this last week during Veteran’s Day but I just didn’t get the chance. I think a lot of people tend to overlook the fact that there are many veterans and many active duty members of the military service that are Satanists. And they serve our country and I think they need to be recognized and honored, especially the Satanic ones because they don’t get recognized like the Christians do. They get overlooked and a lot of the Christian soldiers get a lot of praise and a lot of honor and a lot of recognition. And our soldiers don’t get recognized at all for the service they provide. And I think it’s important as a Satanic show to recognize those people. And I just want to tell you from me personally I appreciate your service and I respect the job that you do.
In this episode I’ll be answering a question about the Satanic afterlife or the beliefs that Satanism holds about the afterlife. The first and most important thing you need to realize is that there is no universal view of the afterlife, there is no universal concept of creation, there is no universally accepted sacred text. This is something that all newbies to Satanism need to understand because if you come across a group that says “This is the way it is, this is the only way it is; our way is the true way,” then you’re probably dealing with a group that is a cult, and you’re probably dealing with a group that is not truly Satanic. When you have any group that tells you that their way is the only way or is the “true” way in Satanism, that is NOT true. It’s never been true.
Everything we know about Satanism, everything we know about the history of Satanism, shows that people’s views have varied from county to country and from group to group and there has never been a universally accepted belief about any of these topics. So that’s the first thing you need to understand. It’s very important that you understand that so that you don’t get manipulated and used. What one chooses to believe is highly personal. It is a personal choice that every Satanist has to make. You have people who have the atheistic view and you have people who have the 13th century Luciferan view that Satan will recapture Heaven and sit on the throne of “God.” So, the beliefs about the afterlife among Satanists vary widely and they basically cover any set of beliefs you can think of. I mean there are people who believe that there is a place where Satan exists but there is no Christian god, and there are people who believe that Satan exists and he’s the supreme God and there is no afterlife. There are people who believe that the purpose of Satanism is to get people to sin and then get people to burn in Hell. Although that’s a small minority, there are people who believe that out there.
There are essentially two types of people: people that make up their beliefs and decide what they believe based on what they think and people who make up their beliefs based on what they’ve experienced. And the people who make up their beliefs based on what they experience, although they may not be any better than the people who make up their beliefs because in all honesty, even if we have experiences with spirits, even if we have visions, even if we have dreams, even if we have things that come to us in meditative states or ritual states, whatever we’re seeing is just the tip of the iceberg. So there’s no way that any of us can really know that much about the afterlife. We’re always going to just be seeing the basic minimum of what we can know about the afterlife until we cross the threshold of death. So that’s one of the things that I think is very important to point out, is that you have to understand that whatever you experience is only a small piece of what the reality of the spirit world is, so whatever you’ve experienced, you can’t make sweeping generalizations about what is true. And that’s why I say that anybody with any intelligence about these types of issues will know that whatever they experienced they can’t say that’s the end-all-be-all of everything. Because whatever they’re experiencing is only their perception of those experiences. So anyone who says they know the absolute truth can’t be telling the truth, because it’s impossible for any of us to know until we pass over the threshold of death.
I’ll continue discussing this topic in the next episode, and I’ll go into what I actually believe personally about the afterlife based on what I’ve experienced and based on things that I’ve learned from friends of mine who’ve also had similar experiences. And that will help you to understand at least what my view is and why I have that view. Anyway, I hope that you have a good week this week and I’ll see you next time. Thanks guys.
Episode 15: Can Satanists & Wiccans Get Along? Part 1

I was asked by a listener whether I thought Wiccans and Satanists can get along. And my answer is obviously yeah, we can get along. Assuming the Wiccans understand one thing: we have a common enemy, a common enemy in the Christians. The Wiccans tend to think of themselves as superior to Satanists, but if they could just realize that its the Christians that are always opposing freedom for alternative religions, if they could just bring themselves to understand that we have a common enemy, then maybe they wouldn’t be so uppity about everything.
See, the problem with Wiccans is they believe their own hype. They believe that they’re special. They believe that they’re carrying on some unbroken pagan tradition, when their religion is really just a recreation of paganism and its a very poor recreation of paganism, because most pagan cultures were warrior-like cultures, most pagan cultures believed in animal and sometimes human sacrifice which are things that Wiccans never do. And if you look at the average Wiccans you can tell they’re not part of a warrior culture because they don’t even look like they’ve been to a gym in a couple of years. So this idea that they’re carrying on some ancient pagan belief is just silly.
Now there’s nothing wrong with being a religion that recreates old pagan traditions or tries to as close as you can, but what you should do is admit to that. You should be honest about it. You should say “we’re trying to recreate ancient paganism as best we can” or the way we think we should. And that’s the problem with all other occult religions is that people aren’t honest about their history. Wicca was created in the mid 1950s by Gerald Gardner and even the Charge of the Goddess is taken from Aleister Crowley’s The Book of the Law. The first two chapters, it has all of this Book of the Law stuff in it, and that’s certainly not ancient paganism because The Book of the Law wasn’t recieved until 1904, so this idea that Wicca is somehow an ancient religion, and is somehow superior to Satanism, is an absolute lie.
And the other thing is they’ve fooled themselves into believing that they’re somehow more socially acceptable to the public than Satanism is and in some ways they’re right because the public generally sees them as harmless. They see them as a bunch of weirdos and fruitcakes, whereas because Satanism has been subject to the Satanic Panic, people fear us more. They think we’re more involved in criminal activities, which, to be honest, Satanists are no more involved in criminal activities than Wiccans are generally. I mean there are exceptions to that rule, but generally speaking Satanists are law-abiding citizens. And unfortunately they have this bad reputation because of all the films and all the documentaries that have been made and all the stuff that went on during the ‘80s. I’d like to also point out that it doesn’t really help that Satanists are still thought of the same way on the internet today. It doesn’t help that people like Alex Jones, and Mark Dice, and Jim Mars are perpetuating this Lucifeian-conspiracy thing.
But getting back to the question, can Wiccans and Satanist get along? Yeah, we can. Will we? Probably not. As long as the Satanists see Wiccans as individuals who are Christianizing paganism, and as long as the Wiccans see Satanists as individuals who are reverse Christians, there’s going to be no common ground. But could we get along? Yeah, sure we could. But will we? Probably not, ever, until we realize that we have a common enemy, and that common enemy in Christianity.
Episode 14: Can I Convert from Christianity to Satanism?
This is Dark Illumination Report Podcast episode 14. The views expressed on this podcast are the views of the podcast host only. The host neither represents nor endorses any specific Satanic organization or tradition. If you enjoyed the show please take a moment to leave us a review on Itunes and please tell a friend. I’d really appreciate it. You can also follow me on twitter at rjwo15. If you have questions or comments you can leave us a message at speakpipe.com\dirpodcast.
A friend of mine was pointing out the other day that they get this question a lot. They’re often asked whether once somebody has become a Christian can they renounce it and become a Satanist. And the answer is obviously yes, you can renounce Christianity and become a Satanist. Only on one condition: that is you haven’t fully accepted the spirit of Jehovah in the first place. And the reason I say that is because if you truly accepted the spirit of Jehovah you wouldn’t have any desire to be a Satanist. Simply by the fact that you can even question Jehovah or Yahweh or by whatever name you want to call him shows that you haven’t accepted his spirit. Because one of the things about Jehovah is he changes your personality. If you accept him and let in his presence, you no longer have a desire to be like everyone else, to be normal. You want to be a passive, servile, always praising Jesus sort of person. So that fact that you can question whether you truly believe in Jehovah tells me that you haven’t accepted it in the first place.
So the next obvious question would be if you haven’t accepted it, why would anybody want to be Christian in the first place? And the reason is because in a lot of places in this country and other places people come from families where they’re constantly being pressured to be “saved,” to accept Jesus. Especially in the Southern United States where I’m from it’s “momma, apple pie, and Jesus.” That’s not just a cliche, it really is kinda like that around here. So, you’re constantly being told that if you don’t accept Jesus you’re going to burn in Hell. So people tend to accept Christianity out of pressure. They might not necessarily really believe in Christianity, but they’re still afraid because they’ve been told “You’re gonna burn in Hell, you’re gonna burn in Hell.” They just break down from the pressure because nobody wants to think about going to an eternal lake of fire forever. What usually happens is once they get past this initial fear though they go back to being the way they were. They go back to thinking about religion the way they did before they were scared and so that’s why they get interested in Satanism again. So what I would say is as long as you have an interest in Satanism, as long as you have a desire to still question Christianity and to not really believe it fully then that means you never really accepted the spirit of Jehovah, of the Christian god in the first place so you’re fine.
Once that parasite gets ahold of you . . . and that’s the way I view Jehovah; I view him as a parasite. I view him as a disease. I don’t view him as anything special. I don’t view him as the supreme God. I view him as a parasite. And I view the people that believe in him and worship him as being possessed., being ill, being sick. And they’re possessed by a spirit of evil that is vindictive, that is hateful, that tries to convince people that he is the supreme deity. I don’t see it as anything special to be a Christian. I see it as somebody who, unfortunately, has succumbed to an illness that they can no longer be saved from.
The Christians are very much like the deity they worship. They have two faces. They present this image of love, peace, and acceptance, but when you really look at what they preach and what they do, that mask comes off and you realize how vindictive and how evil they are. You realize that, just like their god, it’s a mask, that false kindness, that false love, that “we accept you brother,” and “the love of Christ,” and all that stuff, it’s a mask that they wear. It’s an image that they put on. But behind all of that fake love and acceptance is this evil desire to control every aspect of your life. And if you don’t believe me just watch the video I put up on my YouTube page about Christians showing their true colors. Look at what they say. Look at what they do. Look at how they act. And that’s exactly how their god is. He has one face for people when he wants to convince them and seduce them into believing in him and then once he has them he shows people what he really is: a vindictive parasite, an evil entity worth nothing and worth no praise and worship. He is something that should be destroyed. He is something that should be avoided. He is something that should be opposed at every opportunity.
To me the idea of Christians going around giving people this message of “salvation” is about the equivalent of giving somebody an AIDS infected needle, or giving somebody a gun and telling them to pull the trigger once they put it to their head. It’s not something special, it’s not a gift. It’s a curse. It’s enslavement, and that’s the way I see it. And so the way we should look at Christians who go around spreading the Gospel of Christ is they’re committing a crime. They’re committing a crime against humanity, a crime against that individual. They’re teaching them to enslave themselves to a religion that wants to take away their personal freedom and their personal free will. And they’re enslaving themselves to a god that doesn’t give a damn about them.
