"Do what thou will" is the whole of the law......

Where does the title of this expression come from?

Well, you shall find it in many places.

In the world, we find it in hedonistic slogans. People doing what they want is the highest goal for mankind.
Nike says, "Just do it".
Sprite says, "Obey Your Thirst".
Double Diamond Beer says, "I'm only here for the beer".
And on and on,
Show me the money
Sex, drugs, rock and roll
If it feels good do it
Party on dude!
Go for the gusto
Supersize me!

The whole world has been singing along with Whitney to the tune of "learning to love itself, as the greatest love of all", and the "Material Girl" Madonna has been the role model for many youth.

There are umpteen magazines called "self" or some variant like "self esteem" and many more, all aimed at "self".

The tiltle of this wee article is called "Do what thou will" is the whole of the law. Where does that expression come from?

You may think it came from Hollywood, right?

Well, the latest childrens adventure movie I warned Christians about, called the "Golden Compass" when brought right down to its core meaning, is all about "self autonomy", it is all about our children obeying the law that says, "Do what thou will" is the whole of the law.

Actually, this simple expression is the self proclaimed crux position, of the Church of Satan, and it is the ultimate message from the Satanic Bible and mantra of Anton LaVae, it's founder, which was the great doctrine of the man called "the Beast", the legendary Aleister Crowley.

Most people think of Satanists as those awful people that kill babies and drink blood and other horrible ideas, but the Church of Satan merely laughs at such ideas. The true Satanist, according to the "real" Satanists, are all of those who simply live for self. That is their goal and mission in life.

Scripture warns us, 2Timothy 3:1-5

Know this also, that in the last days grievous times will be at hand.
For men will be self-lovers, money-lovers, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unyielding, false accusers, without self-control, savage, despisers of good, traitors, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these.

Do what thou wilt is the undoing of humanity, and Satan Himself is behind it.
He does not change his message. He started the same message in the Garden by appealing to Eve, to do what thou will, for God is keeping things back from you, was the implication. And ever since, this ploy has sent millions to Hell.

Satan disguises himself as an Angel of light, and that is why he does not come as someone to get you to drink blood, but rather he comes in your friends, your surroundings and every day life situations.
His only goal is to get you to "do what thou will".

Live for you. That way you will never seek your life to be hid with God in Christ, where God intended you to be.

Do what thou will, is the sure way to end up in Outer darkness forever.

Hi Tartanarmy!
I have found you here! I wish I could still have your comments at Doctrines of Grace. I understand the point that you make. It is an interesting position to speak bravely and without compromise what has been given to us, the Word Of God. God willing, I learn from you. I spoke rashly as a young man. I want to speak as God would have me as an older guy.

Those satanist think they are so iconoclastic. They only speak the age old rebellion that man is likely, wont to do. I was once an enemy of God. That nature still plauges me. May God's justice come soon. If I doubt the promises, I could imagine praising God's justice from hell. Somehow, in God's community, I am promised to be saved in Jesus Christ as testified in the Word!

I hope we can communicate more.
Rob A.

Hey there brother, glad you are here.
The good folks at Doctrines of grace and I simply had a difference of opinion, so I offered my resignation and they immediately accepted it.

So I came here in relative obscurity and can only attempt to respond as much as is possible in these dark days.

Those old Satanists know a thing or two about modern culture though, that even seems to by-pass a lot of Christians sadly.

Keep on trusting in Jesus Christ alone for salvation, for He alone is our righteousness and only hope at the great Judgement.
