The Satanist embraces the moment in my opinion, for there is neither past nor future. This day for any individual may be the last day of life, or the last hour. Occasionally I come across incidents in life or a blog post that reminds me that life is uncertain and doomed to certain death. There are many external authorities, Christians included, who will convince the individual to sacrifice every moment of their lives in slavery to those external authorities, based on falsehood, fear and ignorant opinion, a foolish waste of precious moments that can never be regained. The only certain thing in life, is the moment, and it is better to use those moments as liberated individuals free from slavery to follow the individuals own dreams, rather than the empty dreams of someone else.
