  Thelema
The theology of Thelema postulates all manifested existence arising from the interaction of two cosmic principles: the infinitely extended, all-pervading Space-Time Continuum; and the atomic, individually expressed Principle of Life and Wisdom.
This "Law of Thelema", as it is called, is not to be interpreted as a license to indulge every passing whim, but rather as the divine mandate to discover one's True Will or true purpose in life, and to accomplish it; leaving others to do the same in their own unique ways.
Thelema has no direct parallel to the Judaeo-Christian concept of the devil or Satan; however, a pseudo-personification of confusion, distraction, illusion and egotistical ignorance is referred to by the name "Choronzon".

 Thelema 101 - Eidolons of Ash   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Thelema utterly rejects the notion of original sin, and states, rather, that we are all divine creatures—“Every man and every woman is a star” (AL I:5).
Thelema also does not recognize any personified source of "evil", such as the Judeo-Christian Satan (although a personification named Choronzon is used to represent malicious confusion, egotism, and illusion).
As such, Thelema recognizes that the fundamental nature of the Universe is creative, which is reflected and embodied in the act of sex.

Thelema is the name of a philosophical/religious system established in 1904 by Aleister Crowley with the writing of Liber AL vel Legis, or The Book of the Law.
Thelema stresses personal Freedom (balanced by disciplined responsibility), the inherent divinity of every human ("Every man and every woman is a star" —AL I:3), and the battle against superstition, tyranny, and oppression.
Living Thelema usually, but not necessarily, is intertwined with the practice of magick, particularly of the concepts and techniques explored and invented by Crowley.

Thelema is a greek word meaning 'will', and it is also the name of a spiritual philosophy which came into being in the early part of this century by an Englishman named Aleister Edward Crowley.
This philosophy also recognizes that the main task of an individual setting out on the path of Thelema is to first discover their True Will, hence initial studies include mainly methods for self-exploration, self-discipline, and encourage free thinking in the individual.
Although Thelema is sometimes referred to as a religion (because to some it is), it accommodates a full range of individual beliefs, from atheism to polytheism.
