Change comes too late for Luciferian forum

LRS going the way of the dodo?

Jeremy Crow a leading light of the religion of Luciferianism has written to all members of his forum Luciferian Research Society to say he is introducing a membership fee of $1 a month for each member.

Crow complained that the LRS had suffered its lowest membership activity to date, and donations had been very low for the $400 a year site.

I have been a member of LRS on and off for many years, a site open to all outlooks of the Left Hand Path.  Since the first years LRS has suffered low activity despite even my own efforts to promote activity.

LRS suffered from being hosted on the Ning hosting platform which limited the options of what could be done with the site.  Ning quickly became obsolete by better designed “free” social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

A few years ago I suggested to Jeremy Crow to move LRS to a different platform, adding a membership subscription.  Crow unfortunately did not evolve LRS with the times, keeping LRS in the same manner as it had been when the forum was created.

Unlike 600Club the public are unable to access ten years of quality content on LRS without becoming a member, so denying the public the opportunity to learn about the Left Hand Path religions.

Crow was tempted to delete his platform, which he kept going mainly at his own expense as a labour of love.

Although I wish Crow success in his subscription-only LRS forum, in my opinion this innovation has come too late to save LRS from extinction.

This is what Jeremy Crow said in his email to members of LRS:

Dear LRS Member,

After reviewing the past several months of activity on the Luciferian Research Society, a few things have become clear. First of all, the level of engagement is at an all time low. We have over 1700 registered members but only about 1% of those members actually use the site each month. Secondly, almost nobody is willing to contribute funds to support the operation of this site. To be completely transparent, and to give shout-outs to those who deserve it, only two people have donated money in 2018:

Thanks so much to both of you! Your generosity is highly appreciated.

The LRS didn’t receive any financial contributions in 2017 at all.

If we look at the number of members who contributed funds in the past 24 months (2 people) this represents only 1/10th of 1% of the total membership. The LRS costs roughly $30 USD every month to continue operating, not including the yearly domain name registration to maintain ownership of the website address LuciferianResearch.org. Over the past two years, the total member contributions have covered less than 1.5% of the total costs incurred. The rest of this expense has been covered by me (Jeremy Crow.)

I’m beginning to feel like the LRS isn’t valued by it’s members and I have to ask myself why I continue to pay for something that almost nobody even cares about anymore. This was once a thriving community and the amount of content here is impressive, but I can no longer justify keeping it going, considering all of the above.

I seriously considered unceremoniously deleting the entire network without notice. I almost clicked the termination button… but I just couldn’t do it.

The LRS has been around for just shy of 9 years. It’s gone through it’s ups and downs and I have myself been guilty at times of being absent for a time before coming back again. And that’s fine! I don’t expect anyone, myself included, to maintain a dedicated presence here. We all have lives outside of the internet (I hope!) but I really like having this space that I can come back to and reconnect with people when I need it. There are a lot of memories stored here in the form of discussions, blogs, comments, photos, etc… I’d rather not see it go away. But it is clear that voluntary member donations alone will never be enough to keep this site going and that I am destined to pay out of pocket to keep this resource alive.

It is with this in mind that I am going to try something new. Within the next week or two I will be enabling a feature that will require members to pay a monthly subscription fee in order to continue accessing the site. At this point I’m thinking that $1 USD per month is more than fair. Even if you are on a fixed income, one dollar per month is not going to break you. It’s all about priorities. If you honestly cannot afford this small subscription fee then you should be seriously focusing on improving your financial situation rather than hanging out on an internet forum.

I’m hoping that not only will this cover the LRS expenses, but will result in a much more engaged membership. I know that a ton of members are going to drop off, but those who remain are going to be the ones who genuinely do value this community hub. These are the people who I really want to interact and share with.  I hope that you are one of these individuals and that you will choose to continue being part of the LRS going forward.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Crow

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,

Michael W Ford

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.
