If you believe in Satan you have to believe he's a loser. God has already kicked his butt. A better alternative would be to study science and leave superstition to those who need it.

NN ... why would ANYBODY need an official religion to "believe in self"?!? I can't "believe in self" by being Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindi, etc, etc???

I've hesrd that offered before, NN. Sorry, but it's nonsense. Satanism, as the name implies, is belief in Satan -- a particularly obnoxious deity.

Most people question their faith at some point in their life, but that doesn't mean you just convert to another religion. You need to search for something that fits into your beliefs. You don't have to convert to anything at all.

If Jesus and God don't love you, Satan DEFINITELY doesn't 😈

Why do you have to convert to Satanism if you don't believe in God or Jesus?  Do you believe in Satan?

Believe in whatever gives you comfort and strength.

It does seem to me that satanism, which is "anti everything relating to the Abrahamic god" is unlikely to offer you anything much.

Of course, you don't HAVE to believe in any higher power if you don't wish to.

To answer you question regarding "Gift of Faith" . . . the Greek word Pistis is derived from Greek pagan mythology. The Christian religion further distorted it to mean some sort of "Divine persuasion" . . a "Gift" from God.
The problem with this dogma, is that it further supports the idea over "Predestination or Preordination" over "Free Will".

4102 pístis (from 3982/peithô, "persuade, be persuaded") – properly, persuasion (be persuaded, come to trust); faith.

Faith (4102/pistis) is always a gift from God, and never something that can be produced by people. In short, 4102/pistis ("faith") for the believer is "God's divine persuasion" – and therefore distinct from human belief (confidence), yet involving it. The Lord continuously births faith in the yielded believer so they can know what He prefers, i.e. the persuasion of His will (1 Jn 5:4).

If you are a Catholic, you were given the gift of Faith at your Baptism.

When you get older, you have to affirm your acceptance of that gift.

Take that gift and start using it.  Don't just drift away because you have doubts.

I personally find that ex-Catholics are generally NOT a pretty sight when they reject God's gift out of anger or because they simply drifted away from God.

Could you explain "gift of faith", please?

I'm not really sure I can explain it, but I can tell you how we look at it as Catholics.

We Catholics hold that Faith is one of the 3 theological (given by God) virtues and is given at Baptism (one of our seven sacraments.)

Faith is a form of sight enabling us to see beyond appearances to the things that last. ‘Visible things are transitory, but invisible things are eternal’ (2 Cor.4:18). Things that last, as St. Paul saw so clearly, are infinitely more important than those that pass. If there are not things that last, what future is there for us anyhow?

Gifts come in different shapes and sizes. Some make more demands on us than others. The gift of a bicycle requires little change in our lifestyle. It is something you can leave in the garage for a few weeks and forget about. The gift of a baby is significantly different. Forgetting about it for a few weeks would have dire consequences. Faith is more like a baby than a bicycle. It needs nourishing, care and attention; otherwise it will die. ‘You have been trusted to look after something precious; guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit’ (2 Tim. 1:14).

Could you be more specific regarding what particular Satanism belief system you are contemplating? It sounds like if you are having doubts about God, you might be considering LaVeyan Satansim.

This particular "Brand" of Satanism is more Atheistic yet it way more primal and seeks to actually mock religion and religious ceremonies or beliefs. I think its a tad bit dramatic and "Over the top". They are certainly organized enough to gain the same "Tax Shelter" afforded other belief systems.

Why don't you try a naturalistic approach or Buddhism if you need to have some organization to the way you conduct your life.

Your age? How old you are may be a factor in that you now find yourself  looking at life in a new way than you've been taught and encouraged by your parents up till now.
It is healthy to wake up and see that the way your family deals with life is not the only way, meaning everything from their political views and religion on down to tastes in food.
Please let us know if you do "convert to satanism" and how you like it there, if it supplies you with a social network/friends you can count on, etc. Just be sure you can get out  and leave the door open..
