    I humbly think it is possible to change how people respond to you, preemptively through a smile, a nod, even bowing to the eye of your affection;)

    If the person is reasonable. Unfortunately not everyone is. My grandma thinks me demon possessed due to my beliefs.

    Then she is oblivious to what is obvious to you or me. Grannies with curly blue hair come to mind, doing what that role does. One of my own grandmothers died recently and was a raging imbecile to the end.

    Post it up here so that anybody can see it...... why not?

    If an altar can be a bowl, or lots of things, then we've got many altars in our little home, celebrating our little hounds, our ducks, flowers and happiness. :)

    OK.
    Question:-
    Do I get the impression that you live with your parents in their house?
    If not, where do you live?

    I live in a group home for disabled adults. I haven't lived with either of my parents since I was seven.

    I have found that one's domicile is not always an accurate nest for them...

    I beg to differ on that again: you can change how people respond to you preemptively. Lest I enumerate the ways how.

    OK........ so you probably do have your own room.
    So that's no problem.
    We should be able to personalise our own spaces, I think. :)

    I just wanted to know what you say, because I think there can’t be any good reason for doing so. And your answer indicates to me that you think so also.

    It doesn't indicate that. There is a good reason. The thing is tho lots of people don't understand paths regarding theistic Satanism and Luciferianism. So I'll ask another question: are you willing to actually try and understand some people don't see Lucifer as evil and see him very differently then how Christianity does? I'll tell you my views so long as you could put aside your bias enough to know I do not believe in Christianity nor do I see the Christain God as someone I would worship. My views on the Christian God and on Satan vastly differ from Christians. Are you willing to understand all this or are you gonna to try and criticise? Can you be civil? If not admit it. I won't hold it against you.

    I don't care if you disagree thats fine and I am willing to tell you my beliefs. I am just not in the mood for any conversation that'll be filled with uncivilness and rudeness. I want you to remember that views differ when talking is all. One person on this thread already got his posts deleted cuz he was being uncivil. He was not willing to try an understand a view different from his. I don't want that to be you. If you are at all uncivil and I feel you arent interested in understanding I will not engage with you. I won't waste that energy. I am not an evil person. In fact I am kinder then some Christians I meet. I am willing to try and understand your beliefs are you willing to try and understand mine? After all the Lucifer I believe in is not the Lucifer of the Bible.Before I go any farther I have to know if you agree to be civil.

    I think I am always civil. But, it is possible that I disagree with you and many times disagreeing is seen as uncivil.

    Well, we can't say that's surprising as you are getting into Satanism and she is a strident Christian.

    Lucifer to me is not an evil entity. He's a god of knoweldge, specially of the self, of freedom, of selflove,of hard truth(as a lightbringer) and of other things. He is a god I would like to work with(but maybe not worship) in order to better myself. From what I've gathered from people who've worked with him he's pretty chill.

    But to assume I am literally demon possessed and wanting to call the pastor for an excorism?

    You have to consider it from her point of view, too. She likely finds it very shocking and concerning. I don't know exactly what the relationship is like between you two so I can't really comment much on it.
