Why Wisdom is not Satanism

A Tract Book Essay

Some protestants seem to think that Wisdom is Satanic. This is absolutely not

true. The Catholic Christian tradition has taught the importance of Wisdom throughout

its history. In fact, an entire book of the Bible, The Book of Wisdom, is all about

Wisdom. Wisdom is the enemy of Satanism.

Reason, or rationality, is very linear in nature and as Bergson points out, misses

many of the most important nuances about life and reality. Alinear Wisdom, using

philosophical intuition is able to find the knowledge that “falls between the cracks” of

linear rationality. If indeed the irrational is evil (with the exception of love), as some

say, then Wisdom is not evil in this sense because Wisdom is arational not irrational.

In more direct terms, we can see that Wisdom and Satanism are not the same and

in fact are in many ways opposites. Satanism is ordered toward evil. Satanism is based

upon hatred. Satanism is based upon destroying the weak.


Wisdom, on the other hand, is ordered towards the Good. Wisdom is based upon

love not hatred. Wisdom looks after the weak trying to help them, not destroy them.

Now, for some the following point may be difficult. Although Wisdom is ordered toward

the Good in the first instance, Wisdom allows all three of the following:

1. The good is used to promote the Good.

2. Evil is used to promote the Good.

3. Evil is used to combat Evil.

Now, it is difficult to find the foregoing list in any philosophical source, but I found

the foregoing to be taught to me, “in between the lines.” as part of my Jesuit education.

Whether they realize it or not, the Jesuits teach Wisdom, and they teach that as long as

one’s primary goal is the Good, that one can use evil instrumentally.

Finally, I would like to point out that Satanism is a bad deal. Typically, one

must sell one’s soul to Satan to get anywhere with Satanism, and this is a very bad deal.

Satan always breaches his contracts. Satanists are hopelessly naïve in this regard. Also,

with the possible exception of Satan, himself, it is absolutely true that evil is simply as

deficiency in the Good. Ultimately, evil self-destructs, and ultimately Satanism self-

destructs. Satanism is a stupid move for those with small minds.
