satan, before Chirsitanity used the word, was hebrew for "adversary".
The Levayen church of Satanism is called that because it teaches things that are pretty much opposites of what Chrsitain churches teach. Things like: Do good things, for that sake of soing good, always question things that don't make sense, depend on your friends and family for love, ask for forgiveness from the party involved instead of from something that wasn't there, etc.
All Satanists that actualy worship Satan are jsut cults that stole the name. The Laveyen church doesn't encourage these cults. Just google Laveyen Satanism, and you'll find real answers, instead of listening to biased opinions on here.
agnostic atheist, I'm not a Satanist myself, but I've read about them.
