Measure others by deeds and results

jacob-mckelvy-finds-jesus

Jacob McKelvy (aka Jacob No) the founder of the Greater Church of Lucifer being baptised as a born-again Christian.  Luciferians would have saved themselves trouble and damage to their reputations by researching this fraudster and judging him based upon his deeds and results rather than his words and manipulations.

When I occasionally commission artists, I research their portfolio of past work.  In using suppliers I look at reviews of what other customers have said about them.  In working with people I am interested in their deeds rather than their words, I have no time for salespeople.

In the Left Hand Path there is an expectation that all those that walk this path judge others by their deeds and results.  To enter into partnership with an individual or group in the LHP is to judge those parties by their deeds and results.  In entering a co-dependent relationship with others is to open self to success or failure based upon their deeds and results, and the self being the agent of their own success and failure would be wise to take great care in what relationships their enter into.

The more I learn about Jacob McKelvy (aka Jacob No), the more I am disappointed in those leading Luciferians who entered into partnership with him in founding the Greater Church of Lucifer.  McKelvy was a con-man who recently became a born-again Christian.

Jeremy Crow and Michael Ford have a strong track record of deeds and results in Luciferianism, but their lack of discernment and judgement in entering into the unholy partnership with McKelvy in founding their “church” is disappointing.  Hundreds of Luciferians joined GCOL based upon the reputations of Crow and Ford, and McKelvy made suckers out of all those Luciferians, the stinking shit of what McKelvy did will stick to the reputations of rest of the leaders of GCOL for years to come due to their profound naivety and stupidity.

Hind sight is a wonderful thing, but the signs were there if leading Luciferians behind the GCOL had taken the effort and courage to dig and see the con-man for what he was.  Tau Pneumatikos is a leading Luciferian (avoided GCOL leadership positions), one who has previously worked closely with Jeremy Crow on LHP conferences and forums, and had Crow talked to her, would have learnt that McKelvy had conned her over a book order in 2014.  The reputations of Crow and Ford based upon deeds and results is strong, but McKelvy was a name I knew nothing about, and neither I am sure did many others in the LHP.  Ford made the point that McKelvy did not know much about Luciferianism before he proposed the founding of GCOL.

Words and an initial financial investment by McKelvy seduced the leading lights of Luciferianism, who jumped on board the Luciferian wagon to suckerdom without using their senses, experience and reason to see what a fraud he was, who used the reputations of Ford and Crow as the platform to swindle money out of hundreds of Luciferians to buy himself holidays, musical instruments and to prop up his own business.

When McKelvy finally was caught out, resigned and then found Jesus, the leading Luciferian Ford publicly whinged like an old woman how early on he witnessed McKelvy was demanding Luciferians bow before him and was acting without consultation with other Luciferian leaders of GCOL.  Even in the early days of GCOL when more red flags were raised about McKelvy based upon his deeds, Luciferian leaders such as Ford was cowardly and submissive in failing to get to grips with a blatant acts of unLuciferian and uncooperative activty by McKelvy.

Whilst I initially considered that a Luciferian platform such as GCOL was a great idea to bring together many Luciferians in cooperative activity, the poor judgement by the leading Luciferians such as Ford and Crow, plus the damage to the reputation of GCOL makes that “church” in my mind a worthless car wreck that should be dissolved.

I conclude by quoting what Luciferian Ford had to say about this matter:

LATEST STATEMENT FOR THE GCOL ON JACOB MCKELVY

Michael W. Ford August 28 at 10:21pm ·

There have been a lot of questions regarding my involvement with Jacob No (aka Jacob McKelvy). As he continues to try to undermine work that has been around since he was a country DJ and a mormon at this time I would like to make a public statement even though I dislike even writing the name of this parasite. Two years ago, he approached me about getting involved in a group he had been trying to start based on the work of myself and Jeremy Crow. I was very hesitant about going into this with someone I knew little about but I felt there was a need for this platform within Luciferianism and had always wanted to do something like this but had little time to do so. Although I won’t get into most of the details about the issues that we had with him from the beginning, I am going to outline a few reasons why I have NOTHING more to do with this “man” and warn anyone who decides to involve themselves with his endeavors.

1. He had never really read my books or any other books on Luciferianism except for the basic, short-book The Kybalion. Even after I had discussed and explained over and over again the importance of knowing and understanding what you “trying” to be a “leader” in, as of the time of his leaving, he had still not read, practiced or done any studies except for the random Wiki page.

2. This man who speaks of “ego’s” as if they are a bad thing (as if he has none – anyone who met him shares that laugh with me), My first experience of the original “ceremony” of self-illumination at a July 4th meeting in 2015 (I was asked to attend) he had his “wife” robe him (yes, she did) and then had a potential member “KNEEL BEFORE HIM” and pledge his “allegiance” to the group. I actually left in middle of it as it pissed me off so badly I could not be respectful in his domain any longer. At this time I was going to leave the organization but he called me and asked me why I left and was I angry. I told him I was personally offended that he would ask another to bow before him and as Luciferians under NO circumstance DO THAT (Any of you that know me personally can attest to my dislike of flamboyant egocentric performance). He actually “CRIED” (yes, there were witnesses on speaker phone) to which he told me he was sorry, he was just learning and if I stayed he would have me re-write the ceremony so it would be “luciferian” in nature, etc.

3. During the opening of our first building, he asked us if we should reach out to the media and announce our presence. We voted no as we had safety concerns for those attending and did not want to make this a publicity stunt. He then asked again stating that Jeremy Crow had an interview in Toronto and they would find out anyway and it would be good publicity. Again, we voted NO. Within two days of this conversation, someone contacted the news about us (our sign was not yet even UP) and the news started interview requests. We were suspicious about the timing but felt the interviews had to be done to state our side rather than their own one-sided approach. The very first interview request was from the Houston Chronicle and after the interview, Jacob asked them if it would be in the Sunday paper. The reporter replied “he did not know” and Jacob responded: “this is pretty big news and people will want to hear about it”. The reporter said in a sarcastic manner “they would probably have news like terrorism and other things to report for Sunday”. He gave the reporter a book and without the reporter asking, he suggested that “we sign it for him”. As the reporter was leaving, we asked how the reporter knew about us. He responded that a anonymous concerned male citizen called to make the public aware of us. I later questioned Jacob because I suspected it was him, he chuckled and said “I don’t know nuthin’ bout that bubba”…to which he said “I’m Media marketin’ Genius, bubba”. Hope and I wanted to leave at this moment but we were in the middle of a full throttle opening of the GCOL and could not just stop then.

4. There were many other things leading up to this but they very last thing was the refusal of him to allow us to see and review the financial records even though he wanted Hopemarie to be responsible for filling our sales with the state. Jeremy Crow asked him again and in the same evening he resigned and signed everything over to us with a commitment to fulfill ALL outstanding membership orders. We finally got him to turn over MOST of the records and found SIGNIFICANT amounts of monies misappropriated for things such as his wedding, honeymoon, guitars, studio time, restaurants, etc. He left us with virtually no money in the bank for thousands of dollars in orders not completed or fulfilled. He later made an agreement with us and paid back monies from January to March of 2016 ONLY. 2015 has never been paid back. He still never completed the orders and complains that he had charge-backs for them.

5. Since the time of his leaving he has bad mouthed myself and others within the GCOL as well as the organization itself. He has even gone so far as to try to steal my copy written artwork to sell on T-shirts. ( I was able to contact Etsy and have it removed)

The reason I am writing this is because there were a lot of questions regarding my involvement and my choice to get involved with this person. As a warning to those who may want to get involved with ANY of his other endeavors: My experience with this man is that he is a manipulator who constantly plays the “victim”, he is untrustworthy; he is NOT a true Luciferian in ANY sense of the word. One of the reasons I think this is not only because of the reasons above but also because when he resigned he asked to meet with me by myself. At which time he told me the only reason that he started the GCOL was to make money as he was living on a friends’ couch at the time. He also stated he was still a registered Mormon at the time of the formation of the GCOL. After doing a little further research, I found a funding site that he created before the GCOL called the “Greater Church of Satan” to which he was trying to raise money for.

As a Luciferian I am always trying to find insight from my experiences and what I have learned from this and take from this is that you should always trust your instincts and if a person does not seem “right” and the “creep alarm” goes off, cut your ties immediately and don’t look back! I hope that my insight will help others who have experienced or who may be experiencing a parasitic plague like this individual.

Ba nam i aharman,

Former GCOL leader becomes a Christian

fall_of_a_luciferian

The fall of a Luciferian leader Jacob No (Jacob McKelvy)

A fellow blogger made me aware that former Greater Church of Lucifer (GCOL) founder and leader Jacob No also known as Jacob McKelvy has converted to Christianity.

McKelvy under his Luciferian name Jacob No was instrumental in bringing together the leading thinkers of Luciferianism such as Michael Ford and Jeremy Crow to form a well defined Luciferian “church” in 2015.  The GCOL had a slick web site, clearly defined administrative systems and rules, and a fast growing membership, especially in South America.  The GCOL opened their first physical church building in Houston USA.

According to leaders such as Michael Ford things did not feel right about McKelvy, for instance in an initial GCOL ritual McKelvy required that he be robed and that a new Luciferian member bow to him, an action that seriously runs contrary to the idea of the LHP where the individual is their own god, bowing to nobody.  McKelvy a former Mormon apparently had not studied Luciferianism, yet most were happy for him to represent them as leader of a Luciferian group.

“My first experience of the original “ceremony” of self-illumination at a July 4th meeting in 2015 (I was asked to attend) he had his “wife” robe him (yes, she did) and then had a potential member “KNEEL BEFORE HIM” and pledge his “allegiance” to the group. I actually left in middle of it as it pissed me off so badly I could not be respectful in his domain any longer.”  Michael Ford via Facebook 28 Aug 2016 10.21pm

Early fears expressed by Luciferians such as on the Luciferian Research Society forum that GCOL might become a source of tyranny seemed to manifest in the activities of McKelvy who was acting without consultation with other GCOL board members.  Events came to a head when board members insisted on looking at financial records and discovered that McKelvy was using GCOL funds for his own use such as holidays and the purchase of musical instruments.

McKelvy resigned from the GCOL, and the board discovered they were insolvent, unable to pay suppliers for services rendered or honor orders for products paid for.  The GCOL board came under fire from those who considered the group should have taken McKelvy to court to recover monies he had apparently misappropriated.  From a personal business point of view, if an individual in my business had committed fraud, I would have referred this to the police, and instituted civil court action to recover lost monies.

GCOL today is a shadow of its former self, though it continues to limp on despite a damaged reputation and resignations.  Former and current members of GCOL have bitterly clashed over the toxic fallout of McKelvy’s activities and over Luciferian philosophy.

McKelvy recently became a born-again Christian, a propaganda boon to the Christian evangelists, where he is training to become a prophetic pastor, which some cynical observers consider is another financial scam by McKelvy.

According to McKelvy in his public speeches to Christian gatherings, he considered GCOL his army of Satan founded to destroy Christianity and Islam.  The ideas of McKelvy contradicts the attitudes of Luciferian GCOL leaders such as Jeremy Crow who promotes Luciferianism as an individual path of empowerment rather than as anything to wage war on other religions.

It remains to be seen if GCOL can overcome dire challenges to its reputation, finances, administration and the ongoing civil war between various former and current members over the direction of Luciferianism.

Can the ONA stop whinging about Satanism please?

crybabyona

ONA types are throwing a tantrum because they are neither wanted or relevant to the new reality of Satanism.

I like to check what others write about Satanism in the WordPress Reader, and oh my, what a bunch of whingers the Order of Nine Angles (ONA) folk are being in recent months.  Outside of trolling LHP forums the favoured past time of those keyboard warriors and fantasists of the the ONA is posting their poop upon WordPress, and most of their output in recent weeks seems to be whinging about Satanism. Indeed, their main focus in life at the moment outside of promoting their psychopathic desire to kill people is a relentless stream of complaint about Satanism.

It has been fully established, as confirmed by these fools on my own blog pages, that the ONA do not regard themselves as Satanists, but some other religion or philosophy altogether. The schizophrenic outlook of ONA motivates them to hang out in every religion and political philosophy going, except their message is always the same, to kill people, plus their love of drama, fast makes them outcasts.  Satanism has been the only home that has given any tolerance to these psychopaths, but like an unwanted guest they have outstayed their welcome and have been booted out of most of the LHP forums and groups.

In just a few years, perhaps reflecting the changing outlooks of society in general, the face of the LHP has changed, and the ONA, like the Church of Satan, have been left in a past where they are no longer relevant to the modern Satanic current.  We have for instance the fast growing Satanic Temple, and even the Luciferians have evolved into a Greater Church of Lucifer. The ONA have suddenly discovered how totally irrelevant they are, now nobody wants them.  They are apparently too stupid to go off and form their own religion, preferring instead to parasite on the religion of someone else.  Plainly, when a guiding principle of the Satanic Temple is “The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo your own;” or that of Greater Church of Lucifer who respects the integrity of life in people and animals, makes it difficult for homicidal ego maniacs like the ONA to get any traction in the new reality of Satanism and the LHP.

Now, the poor ONA psychos gather in their little blog sites and weep and stamp their feet at the injustice that they are now no longer relevant or wanted, even in Satanism.  Cue the violins.

Nature, Religion, Groups and Independent Satanism

The following are quick personal views on certain philosophical points:

Nature.

External to self, nature is the ultimate authority.  Nature is the sum of everything. All that has ever existed, does exist and will exist is part of nature. There is nothing beyond or outside of nature.  Nature is an information system.  The language of nature is mathematical, organized in patterns.  If there is one external authority worth working with it is nature. The only truth worth knowing is what is observed, demonstrated and experienced in nature.

Religion.

Satanic Temple, Greater Church of Lucifer and even the Church of Satan regard the branches of the Left Hand Path such as Satanism or Luciferianism as a religion.  There are many interpretations of what a religion is.  The current definition of religion by this writer is:

“An orientation that defines the self, the world and the place of self in the world. “

Based upon the above definition this writer considers Satanism as a religion.

Groups.

Nature consists of patterns, the human mind can convert those patterns into tools in which to manipulate the world.  The car, the State, the internet are all tools.  Groups such as Satanic Temple or the Greater Church of Lucifer are also tools.  For those that join groups, the challenge, is the tool or the self master in their own life? Satanic Temple is a tool for the individual to manifest their will as social-political activists in the issue of separation of Church and State, or the rights of minorities.  The Greater Church of Lucifer is a tool that offers the first viable international point of meeting of Luciferians to learn about the complex philosophies of Luciferianism.  For those that participate with groups, there is nothing wrong with using any tool to benefit the self, but once the tool becomes the master of self, then those individuals no longer walk the Left Hand Path, they have embraced the Right Hand Path outlook.

Independent Satanism.

The current personal definition of the Left Hand Path:

“The path where the individual retains personal sovereignty over their choices and will to action in all situations in their life.”

Satanism is a branch of the Left Hand Path.  The essence of Satanism is the individual, the self.  In Satanism there is no master but self in their own life.  The focus of Satanism is purely selfish, focused on satisfying the needs, dreams and goals of self.  Only the Independent Satanist truly expresses the authentic core of Satanism, which is the selfish self.

Satanism is not Luciferianism, for the Luciferian is motivated to benefit humanity through their individual activities, whereas the Satanist focus starts and stops with self.

Just as a child needs a parent to act as a “tool” to help them in the world, there is a time when the adult must let go of such tools and seek their destiny alone. The groups are tools that the Satanist can use to advance their goals, but if the Satanist desires to follow the path of Independent Satanism, they must reject all affiliation with Satanic groups.

Leaders of the Greater Church of Lucifer issue open letter

Comment

Satanicviews plans to write posts on the issue of Left Hand Path as a religion and about LHP groups in the near future.  The Luciferians have in recent years attempted to formalize their philosophy through the vehicle of the Greater Church of Lucifer, their latest decisions and developments have been announced in their open letter as follows:

LETTER STARTS…

This is an open letter to the Luciferian, Left Hand Path, & Pagan Community,

Greetings,

We would first like to say that it has been an honor working with many of you over the past 2 years, during which we have seen not only the G.C.O.L community grow but, also the Left Hand Path & Pagan community as a whole.

Here are some of the great accomplishments that you all have helped us achieve over the past 2 years.

1. Greater Church of Lucifer has grown from an idea to launch a platform where Luciferian’s, Pagan’s, those just coming out of Monotheism or those walking on the Left Hand Path, new or experienced, could learn from one another, to an organization that has grown to include several U.S. state based chapters, a Canadian chapter, chapters in Spain, several chapters in South America and we currently have branches in every country in Central America .

2. We have laid the foundation of the Luciferian Doctrine, with the publishing of The Wisdom of Eosphorus.

3. We now have By-laws and an application process in which one can open a chapter in their own city, if none currently exist.

4. We have created a board of Directors (The Archon’s) and several other leadership positions that will help our organization grow and run smoothly.

5. We have made history by filing for tax exemption status as a Religious Organization. (Although, we are still going through the Federal process of filing our 501c3, which will take a little while longer before we are approved) This means Luciferianism is officially a religion and will soon be a recognized religion. This also means that all of your generous donations and future donations are tax exempt and may be claimed on your taxes.

6. We are also happy to announce that The Order of Phosphorus will be integrated into the GCOL, in order to give those that are interested in deep Luciferian study, as well as the Magickal Aspect of Luciferianism, an avenue to pursue their studies. (We will also be announcing another Order that will be integrated under the GCoL banner, in the near future)

7. On August 17, 2015 we signed the first lease in history for a Luciferian Church. A place that like minded people can meet, learn and study from one another. A place where we can revel in our similarities as well as our differences. A place where we share the knowledge and wisdom each of us have inside. A place where we do not have to hide or be afraid to share who we are and what we stand for, a place to meet like minded individuals, who share the similar values. A place we can all call a home.

Make no mistake, the signing of this first lease is a historical moment, not only for the GCoL, but for all those Pagan, Luciferian and Left Hand Path alike, and none of this could have happened without you, the GCoL Members. We are proud of our members and the strength and courage it takes to walk this path. We also know that change can only occur when people stand up and fight for their right to be individuals with opinions that are valued. No civilization throughout history began without individuals that were willing to take a stand for what they believe, with the follow through to make things happen. To make change in the face of adversity happen! These people were all Luciferian, whether they knew it or not.

Even though we have made all of these strides, we still have a long way to go. This is not the time to sit idle or sit on the fence with one foot on the other side. It will not be easy but then again, nothing worthwhile ever is, this is a time to stand together, to see the future of what can be, to support one another and push us into The New Luciferian Era.

Here are some things to consider:

1. We are going to have a GCoL opening weekend. This will occur on Oct. 30th-Nov. 1st. It will include the Building consecration ritual on Oct. 30th. The opening ceremony and 1st GCoL Meeting in the new building will occur on Oct. 31st followed by a luncheon and a festive night of activities at one of Houston’s premiere night clubs. On Nov. 1st we will have a discussion about our future and a closing activity. Allowing all those who travel from out of town the ability to leave by 12:30. (Michael W. Ford will be leading the self-Illumination Ceremony for all members that wish to participate in the ceremony during our first meeting. ** Please note that we would like to know in advance who would like to participate, so that we can make the appropriate preparations) More information about lodging and such will be released next week. Start making your preparations now, to attend this historic event as space will be limited.

2. Thanks to the wonderful donations you all have contributed to the GCoL, We were able to pay for the initial lease and many of the improvements necessary to make the building suitable for the esteemed current members as well as future members. We have also received donations of labor, décor, artwork etc. from many of the local members. A special thanks to Justin, Sabrina, Ivan, Michael, Jacob & Michelle for all your contributions. I can speak for myself when I say this has been a labor of love and am happy to have contributed.
However, we still need to raise money to finish furnishing the inside of the building. We are going to be having an auction to help raise these much needed funds. The auction will help pay for the following, a statue of Lucifer designed and cast just for the GCoL, New lighting fixtures, security system (to help avoid would be vandals) Area rugs, lighting and seating for back room, bookshelf for books to be studied in the back room, privacy window screens for the front of the building, furnishings for lobby area as well as the outdoors area in the back.
More information will come out about the auction within the next 2 weeks. The auction will include many items donated from prominent and influential people within the left hand path community. Many of these items will be one of a kind.

3. We still need to raise funds to build our own building. Our building donation fund is located on the GCoL web page.

4. If you would like to donate in other ways such as donated land or buildings that can only be used for the growth of the GCoL please contact any of the Archons via Facebook. Remember all donations are tax deductable and could save you quite a lot on your taxes.

Last but not least, the GCoL building is only the first of what we hope are many more buildings, here and around the world. I see people online and have talked to many on our path, about how they want to meet and discuss things with like minded individuals. Many feel alone and many didn’t know that there were so many of us out there until they found the GCoL. We are striving for a future, where we can build these much needed homes for everyone who has ever felt this way. We cannot fail if we come together as a community and family and support one another.

Again thank you all for your support and continued efforts in pushing us forward toward The New Luciferian Era.
~Sincerely, HopeMarie, Jacob, Michael, and Jeremy

Our position on Luciferianism

This blog has been asked to do a review on the Greater Church of Lucifer, and has readers who are involved in or are researching Luciferianism.  It seems a good opportunity to establish our position on Luciferianism.

Luciferianism is a branch of the Left Hand Path which shares many ideas and attitudes in common with the more common LHP branch of Satanism.  There are many opinions of if Luciferianism is another form of Satanism; if Satan is the same as Lucifer; if there are differences between Luciferians and Satanists, and what those differences would be.  Self-described Luciferians and Satanists do mix together in LHP websites and events; there are always the few that describe themselves as purists who prefer to oppose any mixing of their branch with the other.

Our position is that Luciferians and Satanists are two different branches of the Left Hand Path, sharing many ideas in common, but with subtle differences.  Our view is that Satanism focuses more on the practical aspects of the Left Hand Path in relation to the individual, whilst the Luciferian prefers to indulge in the philosophical questions of why they participate in the practical application of the Left Hand Path.  This blog is wary of applying the same criteria we would apply to Satanism to Luciferianism, therefore we will only comment on issues relating to Satanism, and will leave anything related to Luciferianism to Luciferians, who know their LHP branch better than we do.

It seems reasonable to refer readers who wish to know more about Luciferianism to the GCoL website, which includes the viewpoints of the leading lights of Luciferianism such as Michael Ford.

Satanic Temple creates first local chapter in Detroit

The New York based Satanic Temple is expanding its Satanic brand by creating fifteen local chapters in the USA and overseas starting with its first in Detroit. The new chapter in Detroit is led by a thirty-something Satanist called Jex Blackmore who promises that they will not sacrifice children and animals or practice cannibalism, much to the disappointment of people such as the Order of Nine Angles followers.

The focus on a grassroots organization is nothing new in Satanism, something the Church of Satan for a time promoted with its grassroots Grotto system before abolishing the system in favour of central control.

The Greater Church of Lucifer for Luciferians also has similar plans for local chapters, though their plans have yet to manifest into tangible results.
