The Catechism of Lucifer – Johannes Nefastos

Ixaxaar – 2013 (First published 2003, I think)

This is another one of those fancy boy Ixaxaar books. I enjoyed the first 3-4 pages and then got very bored. I guess a muggle like me just doesn’t have the brainpower to figure this stuff out.

The Catechism of Lucifer is a Luciferian version of Luther’s Catechism. I did enjoy the fact that the work of a Protestant was being attacked, but that fact also rendered this work a little less blasphemous. I mean, attacking the work of an enemy of Catholicism actually aligns you with the one true church, amirite? I haven’t read anything by Luther (and I hope to John Paul II that I never have to), so i’m sure a great deal of Nefasto’s sinister parody went over my head.

I liked the naughty version of the 10 commandments at the beginning, but the rest of the writing in here is extremely boring. Seriously dull stuff. I mean, I’m sure that some people find it really profound and all that, but I honestly had no idea what this Nefastos lad was talking about. Theosophical Luciferian Gnostic philosophy? Haha, no thanks bud. Thank goodness this was short.

I wonder about the type of people who take these books seriously. I reckon they’re either humourless black metal fans, or neckbeards who collect swords and use an image of an anime character as their Facebook profile pic.

This book doubtlessly looks cool on your shelf and will probably worry your Christian friends if they look through it, but if you want to gain insight from it, good fucking luck. It’s just a load of old crap if you ask me.

    To be accurate, Nefastos is a very big fan of Catholic church, which he views as the most mystical of the forms of Christianity. To be even more specific, he even seems to believe that there is some kind of credence to the claim of pope being the regent of God on Earth, not just in symbolic but in very concrete and magical way. In general, his branch of “satanism”, if it can be called that, isn’t in any way hostile to christianity and most of his cultists and even Nefastos himself venerate Christ as a mystically enlightened “god-man”.

    1. Haha, thanks Johannes!

      In sincerity, thank you for the clarification.

      As I acknowledged in the post, most of this book was over my head. I’m the idiot here. I’m sure Nefastos and his followers have good reasons for their beliefs.
