So since God is just a fairy tale, what do you do when the urge grabs you?
Because unlike Jesus, the urge is real!

And if you still believe, remember this ...
If you don't sin, Jesus died for nothing....

"apply myself wholeheartedly to my intellectual pursuits and to use the full powers of my mind"

"seek to love others as I love myself"

these are not islamic.

the rest of it is pretty close.

Not to rain on your parade, but... who are you pledging to? Jesus said not to make any oaths, and he also said that if you do good you should keep it to yourself, don't boast about it like the Pharisees.

So my question(s): If you truly want to emulate Christ, why are you telling us? And why the large caps, bright color emphasis on the part about homosexuals? It really raises suspicions about your motives, and whether there is a hidden political agenda in broadcasting this for everyone to see.

It sounds as though in posting this "purity" pledge online, you may be overlooking the more serious stumbling block of self-righteousness and pride. If you know your bible, then you know to be mindful of Luke 18:10-14.

10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”


Not wanting to judge, just offer an FYI and a reminder that to truly follow Christ is a matter of the heart.

mr. sunshine, why did you feel the need to declare this on a political forum where no one probably cares?
Thanks from Hollywood

I pledge and and am fully committed to a lifestyle dedicated to Lucifer as personal Lord.

1. I PLEDGE to apply myself wholeheartedly to my ritual sacrifices and to use the full powers of Mephistopheles for the turn of a profit for satan and the leviathan.

2. I PLEDGE to grow in my demonic powers, by developing my own relationship with sadism and avoid all things holy.

3. I PLEDGE to develop my body with hedonism by participating in promiscuous "physical activities" and avoiding harmful repentance.

4. I PLEDGE to cultivate good slave relationships and to seek to exploit others as I exploit my own body. I will not repent; I will not love; I will curse those who love me; I will not feel remorse. I will fabricate lies of righteous and holy people (e.g. republicans, conservatives, christians and God.)

5. I PLEDGE at all times to keep my total being under constant assault from all immoral and illegal actions and communications. I will take all illegal drugs and misuse any drugs; I will engage in or forcibly engage in all illicit, unscriptural sexual acts, which include homosexual activity and sexual intercourse with one who is not my spouse through traditional marriage of one man and one woman. I will excessively drink alcoholic beverages and I will use tobacco daily.

6. I PLEDGE to maintain an openness to my lord lucifers claims on my soul and to do my utmost to follow and enforce his will forever.

The above represents my evil and fiendish pact and is detailed in my contract with Satan as to how I will do his bidding.
