The co-founder of the South African Satanic Church recently RESIGNED after Christians demonstrated unconditional love for him.
Riaan Swiegelaar, the co-founder of the South African Satanic Church (SASC), resigned from his position as presiding priest of the controversial church on 30 May 2022.
Riaan also resigned from the church council, as well as dissolved his membership with the organization.
In a lengthy live Facebook video, Riaan explained how he made the decision.
“To be very honest, I initially thought I’d quietly slip out the backdoor and I didn’t think people would be so interested in why I do what I do.”
“I was very sad and very broken, without realising it. I think a lot of people resonate with Satanism when they come from a very broken place.
“I have met thousands of Satanists over the past year and they are extremely hurt and broken—that’s the one thing we all have in common.”
‘A LOT OF PEOPLE RESONATE WITH SATANISM WHEN THEY COME FROM A BROKEN PLACE’
An emotional Riaan said: “To this day, there have only been four Christians in my entire life who have shown me what unconditional love is.”
He said Adele Frey, one of the people who supported him, messaged him, saying she just did a simple thing by showing him, love.
“People, showing love for others is everything. it is not a simple thing. You showed me the love of Christ; I’ve seen it in you.”
Riaan said Frey showed him, unconditional love at a time when he was a monster, an ugly person who took people like her on.
“You showed me unconditional love.”

Riaan conducted his last interview as a member of the SASC on the CapeTalk radio station, not knowing it would be his last radio interview.
‘I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED SUCH UNCONDITIONAL LOVE’
“In the interview, I said I do not believe that Jesus Christ exists. This lady from the radio team came to me after the interview and hugged me in a way that I had never been hugged before.”
A week later, he saw on WhatsApp that the woman was a Christian.
“I never had a Christian do that. I have never experienced a Christian show so much love after the things I said. And it stayed with me, though.”
A week after the interview, Riaan met with the SASC council about the next phase would be to gain more power and influence.
He said he did the ritual and during the ritual, Jesus appeared before him.
According to Riaan, he was extremely cock and said, “If you are Jesus, you have to prove it.”
JESUS APPEARED TO HIM DURING A RITUAL
A crying Riaan said Jesus flooded him with the most beautiful love and energy.
“And I recognized it right away, like the woman at the radio station pointed it out to me. This is how I recognized the love of Christ. “
In his video also said the number of Satanists in SA was growing.
Riaan lives in Cape Town,
“For the last month, I have had personal conversations with the Lord. I am not here to attack people, but I want to get a few things off my chest.
“I have for a long time believed that I am not worthy of God’s grace because I am ***.
“The Kingdom of God is not a gated community. The kingdom of God is open to everybody.”‘

Meanwhile, the SASC confirmed in a statement Riaan’s resignation.
“We, as the SASC Council, want to thank Swiegalaar for his contribution, both as the pastor and the co-founder of the SA Satanic Church. We wish him success in all his future endeavors. “
