Subject: RE: BS: Is Positive Thinking Satanic?
Oh goodness.

Ok, Christians, you may or may not want to switch to another thread here. Here come my thoughts.

I don't think positive thinking is satanic. I think satanists and satan worship is simply another aspect of Christian cultural background. Many satanists were once fundamentalist Christian, and worshiping Satan is a sort of rebellion on their part, IMO. It's a kind of reactionary religion.

Those who are Pagans (Wicca, etc) do not worship Satan as a rule, but date their belief system as pre-Judeo/Christian, and therefore pre-Satan. So Satan is moot among Pagans.

I think you just have to trust your hunches and go with what feels right. Analyzing it too much can be an obstacle to learning when it comes to faith, IMO.
