No. Satanists are rebelling against Christianity. We only rebel against stupidity and narrow-mindedness.

Do you hate Christianity?
We hate no belief system. All are equal in our eyes and all have value.

How do I leave?
With ease and grace. We even have a loving ritual to honor the departing individual if they wish.

What do I need to get in?
An open heart, a willingness to transform yourself, and an eagerness to learn.

What if I live outside of the Los Angeles area?
We do not have any Temples outside of Los Angeles. However, we do have members that live out of town. If an interested person is willing to travel to Los Angeles once a year, and they are very self motivated, initiation may be considered. Ultimately we are looking to work with those interested in understand and doing their individual “True Will.”

Do you perform astral initiation?
Never.

What is True Will?
That which you were incarnated to do.

Why should I consider initiation?
Many find spiritual progress much easier in a group setting and it fills a need for community.

Is there nudity? Hazing? Hexing?
No, no, and no.

Is there black magick practiced at Cor Lucis?
We define black magick as an attempt to control another’s Will, an act we are sworn not to do.

What is the difference between the Cor Lucis and OTO?
It is easier to explain what is the same. Both are based on Thelema and both have a set of rituals that advance one on a path. The methods of the two groups are far different, and the requirements on members are also quite different.

What is the requirement for membership?
An interested person is interviewed both to see if our Order suits their needs, and they suit ours. We look for a “fit.” Please view our application if you are interested in getting started.

Love is the law, love under will.
