If you love everyone and everything you lose your natural powers of selection and wind up being a pretty poor judge of character and quality. If anything is used too freely it loses its true meaning. Therefore, the Satanist believes you should love strongly and com pletely chose who deserve your love, but never turn the other cheek to your enemy!

<p>1: Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked</p>
<p>2: Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them</p>
<p>3: When in another’s home, show them respect or else do not go there</p>
