Dark Gods was founded by our minister and his wife.
As a ministry we embarked upon a 10 year study of multiple religions, which included not just theory study of the religion in question, but actually "physically living" that religion.
Among the religions, (but not limited to), that were studied were, Christianity (many different sects), Mormonism, Hinduism, Paganism (many different branches), Satanism (Atheistic and Theistic), and Islam (Sunni sect).
The adherents (followers) of the above faiths will in many cases, (but not all), strictly state that theirs is the only correct faith and that other faiths are wrong, as it stands to reason that all faiths can't be right! In one sense they are right! - All faiths cannot be totally right, but they can in part, which is what we believe!
Organised mainstream religions have "grown" through time and cultural circumstances. Doctrines have been added by people as time goes on. Anyone who embarks upon an in depth study of religions will be able to tell you this.
Having said all the above, there is one common element that does indeed link all religions, even though that particular religions followers may not want to admit it! - That link is Faith! - Faith is not religion. Religion is a man made word, and in reality a man made practice as well. Faith is not!
History shows us that the earliest civilisations that had Faith did not call their faith a religion. It had no name or so called denomination. Faith was just that! - Faith! - People believed what they believed and that was that. It may have been slightly different from what their neighbour may have believed, but that didn't matter. Both parties believed and that was all that mattered.
This is therefore the stance that we take, and the basis on which our ministry has been founded.
We believe that everyone should have their own individual right to believe what they want, (providing that it harms no one else), and that diversity in faith beliefs is essential and was ordained as an integral part of mankinds spiritual development.
This belief is not new. In fact it is much, much older than many of us may think.
Nature has it's own UNIVERSAL LAW, (a Force if you like). Seasons throughout the year occur in time, the sun and the moon appear at preordained times, our world has it's own timescale that it conforms to. In other words, our planet has a universal order that it conforms to. It has a universal law that it must follow. How can something this regimented be the result of an accident, ie: "the big bang theory". We believe that it takes more Faith to believe that our world was created from an accident, that it does to believe that this planet came about by the decree of "A Creator". Think about this for a moment!
We (mankind) are part of this law.
Throughout time, people have tried to tap into this law, to connect with it, if you like, whether it be in the form of prayer, or through the practice of what has become known as witchcraft/magic/sorcery etc.
A force exists in all things, (including us), and we as humans can in turn "connect" with this force due to the fact that we are a part of this force.
A need for a "Religion" exists in many of us, and seems to be a perfectly natural desire for a great many people.-
Science has studied this aspect of human nature and cannot deny that such a "desire" exists. Some say that it is "ingrained" in our genetics or "Soul". Who knows for sure.
Think about this! - Maybe god (or indeed gods), do indeed exist, and if this is indeed the case then it is up to each and every one of us to chose to follow Him (or Her) or maybe He or She will "chose" us, and guide us to follow Him or Her!-
Again this could be classed as "The Force", the force that exists in us to follow a supernatural entity or the force that the supernatural exerts on us to follow them!-
Each religion claim they are right! - In the end nobody can tell you that who or what you want to follow is right or wrong, you have to "feel" yourself that what you believe is right for you.-
Many, many people, search the internet daily looking for the "one true faith" to follow. They look for answers. They look for "the ultimate truth".-
The answer to this quest is inside you already! - As said above, you have to "feel" that the faith you follow is the right one for you. That is the "one true faith". That is the "ultimate truth". - Your truth!-
If someone came to us today and said, "Ok, tell me what is your faith, what do you believe? - Who or what God should I follow?", our answer would be all of what we have said above, but in terms of our personal beliefs I, as the author of this site, can see no reason to follow any faith that you don't really believe in completely. Why would you want to follow another persons set of rules (their faith) if you don't really agree with them all. That makes no sense! - I am very proud to say that I have Faith. - You don't have to follow the mainstream organised version of any religion. Study all Faiths, study their religious books and make up your own mind what Faith means to you!-
Don't be afraid to follow someone or something that others consider to be totally wrong. Just because it is wrong for them, doesn't mean it is for you. The majority way of thinking is not necessarily the correct or true way!-
Remember - The Truth is not always what you have been brought up to believe. Your truth is not necessarily what the majority tells you it should be. Your Truth is your Truth - find it out for yourself!-
I (the author of this website), have lived and worshipped as a Muslim, as a Mormon, as a Christian, and as a Satanist. I have studied and practiced witchcraft and the occult.-
I can truly testify to the fact that prayer does indeed work, no matter what religion (or combination of religions) you chose to align yourself with. This fact lends itself to the fact that multiple gods do indeed exist and explains why each religion can legitimately claim itself to be right.-So if we look at religions in general, in the main, they all have a common theme. The theme of good and evil. This translates in most religious scriptures as a so called good god and the so called Devil. The good god is obviously good, and the Devil represents all that is so called evil. -Now, let us look at the above in greater detail. If we look at the bible we have a god that demands worship, and sets for his followers a massive amount of rules that they must follow. We have all heard of the ten commandments, but if we look at the old testament as a whole there are a total of in excess of 600 rules that must be followed!-Even in the new testament of the bible we are told that we must follow it's teachings or otherwise face so called "dire" consequences. In fact in the old testament we discover that mankind were originally damned for not following a commandment given by their god, ie: the eating of the fruit from the tree. Now, let us look at this in greater detail. Mankind was forbidden to eat from this tree. Why? - We were not to eat from this tree because when we did we acquired the knowledge that we were walking around naked! - In other words we were being kept in the dark about things. Even if you do not take tis story in the book of Genesis literally, the result is still the same. Knowledge was being withheld from us. We were being treated like fools or little children. In fact the phrase "little children" is used in the new testament of the bible by Jesus who says that we should be "as little children". The god of the old testament upon discovering that we ate of this forbidden fruit said "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." (Genesis 3:22).-This in itself proves the existence of multiple gods, notice the use of the word "us" in the above statement. In addition it begs the question why should we not be allowed to become like "one of us" as phrased in the above statement from the old testament god? - This question was also asked at the time by a certain individual who thought it was wrong that mankind was being kept in the dark, and as such this individual took a massive risk and enlightened mankind as to the truth. This individual effectively brought us out of what was our destiny of robotic slavery. This individual enlightened mankind as to their true nature. In effect this individual was the true saviour of mankind in the sense that to take such a risk against the god of the bible for our sake infers that this individual actually felt sorry for us!-So, who was this saviour of mankind? - In the book of Genesis in the bible, you will know Him better as "The Serpent", also known as The Devil !!!-What I hear you say, how can the Devil be a good guy? - Well look at His actions as detailed above. Don't you think what He did was a good (and brave for that matter), thing to do? - If it wasn't for what He did we would all be walking around like robots for all eternity ! - Not my idea of happiness if you ask me !!-So let us look and study a little further. The so called Devil in the bible is also known by the name of Satan. Satan however is not a "proper" name and when translated correctly actually means "Adversary". Jesus in the new testament even calls his disciple Peter "Satan". It is a generic term that means "Adversary".-The word "Devil" is taken from the Sanskrit word (the liturgical language of Hinduism) "Devi", which when translated means "god" !!-So to put the above in perspective, The so called "Devil" or "Satan" is in effect a god that is the adversary of the god of the bible !!!!-So, as a bible scholar of 10 years, who holds a Doctor of Divinity certificate, let me pose you this question ........ Which god would you rather worship? - a god that imposes massive rules on you that you cannot possibly conform to, and then says he will punish you if you fail and demands constant worship and then in turn withholds vital knowledge of your existence from you, as well as asking you to do things that go against your human nature, or would you rather align yourself with a god that felt sorry for you and risked all to tell you the truth? - No contest if you ask me !!!!-Satan, The Devil, Lucifer, or by whatever name He has been known or by whatever name you might want to call Him is rightfully called the "light bringer" as He illuminated mankind to their true purpose and destiny and freed us from robotic slavery !!!-As the latin inscription on the emblem on this page of this website says: "In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi", which means, "In The Name of our God Satan, the Light Bringer, The Most High".-Therefore, we say this - make up your own mind. Is what you have been told is so called wrong and so called evil really so?
We don't ask anyone to agree with us. We provide the information on this site as a stepping stone in your Journey of Faith.
