>>17215244 Because they use the word satanic to describe a lot of things which aren't satanic. Anyone interested in the occult, alchemy, freemasonry, or anything similar would fit into that category for them, even if it's not true because it's close enough in their eyes.
>>17215244 I often read his book Lectures on Ancient Philosophy and listen to his lectures (highly recommended). I think he respected Christianity as a potential stage in the road of higher understanding but its focus was too easily disturbed by fundamentalist interpretations like that of the vicarious atonement (atonement by the death of Jesus Christ) and the personal God (as a being with a personality, temper, etc).

We don't need to be saved from anything more than ourselves and our bad decisions. Let's say Christ is a character from a book and he is an archetype for a thing called the Rational Soul just like Bacchus or Brahma. Historical consensus says that Jesus Christ existed, in my personal belief he was some sort of enlightened human (more connected to his divine self) and obviously created a shock-wave among those who met him (see the depictions of Christ in the Abrahamic religions).
Really, Manly P. Hall was a very chill gentleman I don't ever see him as picking out fights with anyone truly a great master.
