Christians, what made Aleister Crowley evil? That he spread the fact that the occult = truth and bible = lies?

  • My opinion is that he was dubbed the evilest man in the world in Victorian England, under very prudish culture, and it’s just been passed on nonchalantly that he’s evil, without the things he did necessarily being all that evil by today’s standards. As Crowley said, the only difference between him and the pope is what they consider sacred and what they consider profane.

  • Your question is weird. I’m Christian, yet have studied teachings of Aleister Crowley. I don’t find him evil. I do find it funny that someone who seems to be a fan of Crowley would even say he 1) “spread the fact” and 2) “occult truth and bible = lies”.

    Any student of Crowley would know quite clearly, that Crowley didn’t deal in facts. Crowley understood the world we know is an illusion, interpreted and experienced through our minds.

    Just because you read the bible in wrong terms, missing the actual point of the writings, doesn’t mean its lies, you just don’t understand it. And if you understood Crowley, you would understand why lies and truth, are one and the same, and meaningless.

  • You got this backward – bible=truth and occult=lies.

    You’ll know this for sure on the ‘last day.’ But I hope you find this out long before then. . .

  • For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.

    But the bloody sacrifice, though more dangerous, is more efficacious; and for nearly all purposes human sacrifice is the best.

  • Actually, it was because of the principles in Liber Al Vel Legis. The book does strongly imply that the old religions of the world are like slave drivers, and need to be stamped down. To most Christians that is Satanic, when in reality it is Liberation.

    Remember, Crowley recommended the Bible as a study on occultism and esoterica; but like any book recommended one not fall into it’s traps.
