unmasking Baphomet

Baphomet
(Updated 12/29/2015)

Baphomet, the character pictured here, is a popular figure tied to many pagan rituals and organizations.  He has also been referred to as “the talking goat’s head”, “the goat of Mendes,” and “the horned god.”  Because this idol has ties to so many pagan groups, no one is 100% certain who used it first.  Groups throughout history who have used depictions of Baphomet in their rituals include (but are not limited to) Islamic mystics, the Knights Templar, Kabbalah, Roman pagans, Greek pagans, Druids, witches (both Wiccans and black witches), satanists, and Freemasons.  If anything, it shows that false religions have spiritual ties to each other and since they have those ties, it is no wonder that there is a push among all false religions to have a one world religion that preaches about all roads leading to “God.”

The picture here of Baphomet was drawn by a man named Eliphas Levi, whose name appears in the lower part of the picture.  He was a 19th century Kabbalah mystic in France who established many teachings followed today by those involved in magick and the occult.  His real name was Alphonse Louis Constant and he at one time had the desire to be a Catholic priest but eventually left the seminary and the Catholic Church to embrace occultic teachings, beginning with Rosicrucianism.  After leaving seminary, he changed his name to Eliphas Levi, which he thought to be the Hebrew version of his birth name.

This idol drawn by Eliphas Levi is chock full of occultic symbols.  One of the first things you will notice is the pentagram on Baphomet’s forehead.  The pentagram, whether upside down or right side up, is a very prominent occultic symbol.  According to Levi in a book he wrote on transcendentalism, the pentagram symbolizes the power of the mind to dominate the spiritual realm in order to interact with “legions of angels and hosts of fiends”, or, as we Christians would say, it is symbolic of interacting with devils.

On Baphomet’s right arm is the word “solve” while on his left arm is the word “coagula.”  Together the words form the phrase “solve coagula” or “solve et coagula.”  This phrase means “solution and coagulation” and is a philosophy based on medieval alchemist practices.  Alchemy was the belief that base metals could be changed to gold, that panaceas existed to cure all ills and needed to be discovered, and that with enough experimentation, one could discover an elixir to give longevity to life.  It also included the use of occult magic in an attempt to bring these theories to reality.  The phrase “solve et coagula” was the mantra used referring to the process of breaking down elements and hardened positions (solving) so those elements could be changed, or transmuted, to be united in a different form (coagula).  Levi thought this phrase applied to the religious/spiritual realm where people’s unenlightened beliefs could be broken down and then changed to more enlightened paths that would unite everyone to a new perspective that would put everyone into agreement.  In other words, he wanted to break down the Christian belief that Jesus is the only way to God, or other “divisive” doctrines, so that all mankind could unite to follow his god in a one world religion.

If you look at Baphomet’s hands, the index finger and second finger on each hand are up.  These hand signals (the “peace” sign) are  symbolism used in the occult world as well as in the Catholic Church and Eliphas Levi applied this signal to his own occultic ideas.  Actually, the two philosophies symbolized in this hand signal, whether they are used in the Catholic Church or in occultic settings, are both false doctrines.  The Catholic portrayal of Jesus below shows a Catholic Jesus (a false Christ) using the hand signal.  The two-fingered signals used by Baphomet and the false Christ symbolize 1)Apostolic Succession, and 2)Temporal Power.Catholic Christ

Apostolic succession in Catholicism is the doctrine that only the Pope is the true head of Christ’s church on Earth and that he sits in the seat of Christ (i.e. he is the “vicar of Christ”).  Temporal power is the doctrine that the Pope has authority and sovereignty over all the rulers of every nation on Earth.  To the occultist bowing down to Baphomet, apostolic succession is translated into the belief that Baphomet is the god in every religion, therefore all religions lead to god.  The doctrine of temporal power is translated into the belief that Baphomet has universal power to rule all nations.  It is only through the acceptance of his doctrines that peace, victory, and unity can take place on Earth and in the universe, according to occultist teachings.

The two-fingered sign with one arm up and one arm down also symbolizes the “As above, so below” mantra that is used in various pagan, occultic, Hermetic traditions (see this comment below). It has several interconnected meanings within each occultic tradition which intentionally muddies the waters of specifically pinpointing its definition for the sake of confusion. Generally, it refers to a universal balance between positive things and negative things, the physical and the spiritual, which appear to be opposed to each other, but end up working in unison for the benefit of those who use the mantra. To Eliphas Levi, it meant the use of Chesed (creativity, kindness, light) is balanced with the use of Geburah (severity, fear, judgment, dark) for universal power. (added 12/29/2015)

In Baphomet’s lap, you see two serpents criss-crossing up a pole with a hole in Baphomet’s abdomen.  Two serpents going up a pole is the ancient symbol of the staff of Hermes in Greek paganism, and the caduceus of Mercury in Roman paganism.  This occultic symbol means Baphomet opens the path to Kundalini energy (taught in Hinduism), also known as the “Serpent Power”, that when released causes the occultist to transcend to higher levels of enlightenment to unite the body, mind, and spirit in well-being.  It is also a phallic symbol representing the act of generation (especially sex outside of marriage) and promotes the occultic/pagan belief that sex brings the person who participates in it great power and control in their own lives and control over the individuals they have sex with. For more on the ungodly symbols found in depictions of Baphomet, see this comment below which has quotes from occultist Eliphas Levi.

Those who buy into all of these evil doctrines that Baphomet represents are terribly deceived.  Baphomet’s pentagram may promote contact with devils, but God’s word says, “…I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils,” [1 Corinthians 10:20-21].  Devils, although they transform themselves into angels of light, are nothing but deceivers who bring darkness and like thieves come only to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.  But Jesus Christ has come so we can have life more abundantly [John 10:10]. Baphomet may claim he wants to “solve coagula”, but this is nothing more than a plot to blaspheme God’s name as he opposes God in a feeble attempt to exalt himself above God.

Those who follow Baphomet may seek to destroy the true church of Christ, but upon the rock of Christ God has built his church, and the very gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  Greater is he that is in Christian believers, than he that is in the world [1 John 4:4]. Peace, victory, and unity may be promised by Baphomet by his claims to have all power on Earth, but true peace can only come through Jesus Christ, the true Prince of Peace.  Real victory over sin, death, hell and every work of the devil only comes through the Lord Jesus Christ, who alone has been given all power in heaven and earth [Matthew 28:18].  True unity can only be displayed when there is unity of the Holy Spirit and of godly faith in the believers of Jesus Christ. Baphomet promises enlightenment through his serpent power, but in reality it is the entrance of God’s word into our hearts that gives us light and understanding [Psalm 119:130].  God’s word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path, providing us with more understanding than any ungodly teacher or ungodly elder [Psalm 119:99, 100, 105]. So who is this Baphomet?  None other than the great deceiver known as Satan, Lucifer, Beelzebub, Belial, and the devil.

  1. This is, truly, an excellant article. It is not focused on too much today in (various) churches but it is indeed true that, “[…] we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12, KJV).”

    What about the symbolism of the half moons in the top left and bottom right corners? (Did, I miss you expound on that?) What are your thoughts?

  2. penultima,

    Thanks for your comments. I left out the crescent moons because I couldn’t find anything on them and didn’t know what they meant. But after further research, I was able to find out more information when I tracked down a translation by A. E. Waite of Eliphas Levi’s “Dogma et Rituel de la Haute Magie.” In English, the title is “The Ritual of Transcendental Magic.” On p. 82 of that book, Eliphas Levi makes the following blasphemous statements about Baphomet:

    “Now, all the fathers of the Church, who have concerned themselves with Jewish symbolism, have recognized in the immolated goat the figure of Him Who assumed, as they say, the very form of sin. Hence the Gnostics were not outside symbolical traditions when they assigned this same mystical figure to Christ the Liberator. All the Kabalah and all Magic, as a fact, are divided between the cultus of the immolated and that of the emissary goat. We must recognize therefore a Magic of the Sanctuary and that of the wilderness, the White and the Black Church, the priesthood of public assemblies and the Sanhedrin of the Sabbath. The goat which is represented in our frontispiece bears upon its forehead the Sign of the Pentagram with one point in the ascendant, which is sufficient to distinguish it as a symbol of the light. Moreover, the sign of occultism is made with both hands, pointing upward to the white moon of Chesed, and downward to the black moon of Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect concord between mercy and justice. One of the arms is feminine and the other masculine, as in the androgyne of Khunrath, those attributes we have combined with those of our goat, since they are one and the same symbol. The torch of intelligence burning between the horns is the magical light of universal equilibrium; it is also the type of the soul, exalted above matter, even while cleaving to matter, as the flame cleaves to the torch. The monstrous head of the animal expresses horror of sin, for which the material agent, alone responsible, must alone and for ever bear the penalty, because the soul is impassible in its nature and can suffer only by materializing. The caduceus, which replaces the generative organ [penis], represents eternal life; the scale-covered belly typifies water; the circle above it is the atmosphere, the feathers still higher up signify the volatile; lastly, humanity is depicted by the two breasts and the androgyne arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences. Behold the shadows of the infernal sanctuary dissipated! Behold the sphinx of mediaeval terrors unveiled and cast from his throne! Quomodo cedidisti, Lucifer!

    The dread Baphomet henceforth, like all monstrous idols, enigmas of antique science, and its dreams, is only an innocent and even pious hieroglyph.”

    It’s obvious that these devilish doctrines are affecting what we see going on in the world. The caduceus is a phallic symbol promoting fornication and Baphomet is androgynous–having both female and male body parts. Androgyny is what we see promoted in rock-n-roll and in the world at large when people espouse bisexuality, transgenderism, or homosexuality.

    1. You are all doing what is exactly what is wanted. Quarreling over your beliefs is a means to achieve nothing, for if only Jesus can save, then even trying to preach gods word is useless, as you do not hold such powers. If not to preach to lift a veil then your breath is wasted and time is spent not worshipping, but feeding the ego. Bickering over beliefs has led to wars. If, instead of debating on a internet forum, you would go out and bring good to the world, you would surely be more god-like. One should be happy enough in their belief that they shouldn’t feel the need to explain or preach it, as I said, Jesus is the only one who can save, right? So, your spouting of who is wrong and right, is meaningless. This is to everyone on this forum, I simply replied to harry. None of this matters after our physical bodies have passed, so why concern ourselves with discussing these beliefs? That’s the real evil if you ask me. Go do something good for someone in the physical world instead of discussing this for such an extended period of time. While this world is only temporary, regardless of what you believe in, you may find some happiness in helping others who need it. You may never know how simply holding a door for someone may help them feel joy if you are too preoccupied with a screen with letters on it.

      1. Anonymous,

        Do you know what the “law of noncontradiction” is? It simply states that if a statement contradicts itself, it cannot be true. Your statement contradicts itself and cannot be true. You claim debating about beliefs is a waste of time, yet your comment is debating us about our debating. You say spouting off about who is wrong and who is right is a meaningless exercise, but by your very statement you are claiming you are right and we are wrong. So you’ve contradicted yourself–which means you’re not practicing what you preach.

        You should also take a closer look at your statement about wars. Wars take place when certain people believe they have the right to violate other people’s rights by unjustifiably using violence with intent to murder with the help of an armed group. “Bickering” about beliefs takes place all over the place every day, but most places in the world aren’t having wars.

  3. This essay while completely biased on the christian side unfortunately shows the author did the most minute amount of research but surely the eyes were afraid to dig too deep into what they were affixed. Baphomet is a symbol and nothing to do with pagan. Unless by pagan you assume one means because they don’t believe in christ? Ponder this thought on the highest levels and you may assume a minute amount of enlightenment. That which could be thought is false! From a completely unbiased (I.E. Agnostic(I don’t assume to have any answers because there are no questions.)) point of view there is but one meaning of this beast! Baphomet represent qualities attributed to the forces that created the great world weather you call that force God Jesus Mahammed Jah Jehova Iam whatever makes no difference. This is the symbol they taught their followers to respect creation, life, death, continuence, love, imperfection, the universe, all summed up into one symbol which by the way is a card among the taro deck. The taro being a wheel representing the cycle of life and the story of the forces that created it. The moons you seem to misunderstand represent the movement of the moon, orbital. The position of the moon, waxing and waning. The harmony of both the dark (eclipsed) moon as well as the bright (enlightened) side of the moon appearing to balance an equation. Does this mean worship the goat head, no it simply means stare at this symbol and you will find universal truths. To call all of this devils and to say that jesus (ha) is the only way to attain knowledge obviously you don’t know the internet that well. You assume to read a few articles on a symbol you have no knowledge of that you are of merit to post a report of venomous slander against that what you do not understand. Such disrespect is a quality of christians passed down from their predecessors. That’s my two cents care to debate I won’t be back on this page contact me directly Crazedlude@hotmail.com.

  4. Perduable,

    I’m rather glad you won’t be back on this page. Yes, I have a bias in favor of Christianity just as you have a bias in favor of your beliefs. Biases, when based on the truth of God’s word, are a good thing and are pleasing to Jehovah, the God of the universe. I’d much rather please him than be concerned about offending you or any other unbeliever.

    By “pagan” or “heathen” I mean anyone who does not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, which is what the Bible teaches. As far as your attack on my research goes, I went to the source of the one who depicted Baphomet and the other pagan resources who discuss him. I even quoted in my comment from Eliphas Levi’s book for his meaning of the picture of Baphomet he drew. And you’re disputing information that has come directly from him. The fact that Baphomet is a representation of the devil and devilish beliefs is not venomous slander, it’s the truth.

    Your bias against godliness, truth, and righteousness in the things that I’ve shared here simply reflects the fact that you hate the one true God and what he represents while you sugarcoat the devilish lies you’ve bought into as being the truth. You call evil good, and good evil; you mistake darkness for light, and light for darkness; you also mistake bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter when it comes to spiritual matters [Isaiah 5:20].

      2. Ehm, if this isnt the truth, then why are all this symbols in our churches and in all religions churches, cause all religions contain symbols of this baphomet as it means that all religions contain truth. But you have a free will to choose good or bad. As it shows up is good and the sun and shows down bad or evil with the moon side. Both are needed, cause one without e other cant exist. That like the symbol yin yang, it shows on there big white (good) but there is always a bit black (bad)in it and the you have big black (bad) but there is always a bit of white (good, light, hope) in it, they coexist. All religions hide some truth and some lies, something good and something bad, cause those who rule the world also rule the church as they control the masses, and sometimes those who rule are bad power(black) and means they take over the churches and but bad stuff in it, and then then comes a good ruler in the world (white) and teaches good stuff in the church, so what i mean is all religions have good truth but you have to take the bad ones who are not good out it, cause the heart knows the good, as you see jezus statue with the sun crown on his head, hand with the heart and hand showing UP (white ,good) you know with your heart what is good, with your heart you know also what is the bad in the church that you have to reject. I found all this today after years thinking af everything i saw and searched to understand and find the truth as could not rest till i find all this difinitions. Today i understood everything on how the system works , all of it. And with Trump who is now in the new world order but of the good side UP against Hillary who was as Obama and Bush the DOWN side, the evil. Thats why with them the world was in wars and chaos. And Trump is now the good force who comes and defeat thé dark forces Hillary and Obama and Bush. So normally we chould see change to peace in the world from now on as Trump won and also if you hear him saying his speeches, you hear positive stuff, Hillary bad stuff like war with russia, while russia is the good guy good power, and Trump is going to be friends with him and all the west, the mad eviL EU will fall as it was a evils plan of the bad powers. So that shows that everything has to do with this baphomet image, as it controls church(your beliefs), politics (thoughts) by tv media news, who mostly are on the evil side, the news will give you lies by giving you some truth with lots of lies, but cause of a bit of truth in it you will also believe the whole with it, confusion in your mind and other things in society. It controls You.

  5. I believe the baphomet represents accepting the world for as its seen; all the elements and creatures. Accepting that everything’s the way it is because a collection of stories in an old book or a man at a podium tells you so is unbelievable. The world is as it is and no mystical being or god made it so. Christians truely are the most hypocrital and ignorant people on earth. Always saying to “accept all men as we are all gods children” yet telling me I’m wrong for not follwing your beliefs.

    1. I’m not a Christian who says “we’re all God’s children.” We may all be created by God, but only those who know Jesus are God’s children. The Bible has been proven many times over not to be just a collection of stories. There are countless people whose lives have been completely changed for the better because of God’s word being preached to them. Call us whatever you want and be a hater all you want, but the lives of us Christians are filled with the Lord’s joy, peace, and grace whether times in our lives are rough or copacetic. We don’t have to always depend on ourselves or other people since God is always with us. We can let ourselves down, other people can let us down, but even when that happens, God remains faithful to us and always works things out when we are weak. Who do you have when you fail or when others fail you? I imagine that must be a miserable, empty type of existence.

      Baphomet is not symbolic of any good thing. But you are so blinded by the evil in your heart, such a statement won’t make any sense to you. So if you want to keep playing into the devil’s hands with your false beliefs, you have the free will to do so.

It sounds to me that he sees the image for what it is unlike you who sees it as the most awful thing ever even though all its saying is life is life nothing more nothing less. It seems to me that you are the evil and the one spreading it, not the people who believe in equality and determine life what for they see and what it appears. not like you who takes life to an extreme saying that balance is evil because all the power in the world is in God.

      2. William,

        You claim “nonignorant” above doesn’t know any better when in fact he does know better. He/she made it known they were very aware of Christian teachings. Also, I gave quotes from Eliphas Levi himself in a follow-up comment to this post above where the very artist of the Baphomet drawing admits it was a depiction of Lucifer and occultic practices. Anyone who is familiar with Christianity, as “nonignorant” claimed he/she was, should know the Bible speaks against occultic practices and against Lucifer/Satan. So your whole argument is baseless.

        “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all,” (1 John 1:5), but Eliphas Levi taught Baphomet had darkness in him. Additionally, Jehovah the God of the Bible is superior to all other gods and his doctrines are superior to your religious beliefs and anyone else’s beliefs who don’t agree with his. That’s why his prophecies are the only ones that come true even centuries after they were first predicted.

        To end my comment, I’ll point out the contradiction in yours. You say you believe in equality, but obviously you don’t. By saying my beliefs are evil (which they aren’t) and by criticizing my beliefs as wrong in comparison to yours, you are claiming my beliefs are not in a state of equality to yours. Therefore, you don’t really believe in equality and have contradicted yourself. By contradicting yourself you violated the universal law of noncontradiction which states that any principle that contradicts itself cannot be true. So you’ve proven yourself to be a liar.

    1. True peace can only come from the Lord Jesus Christ. This peace from the Lord has a pre-requisite that a person examine themselves to see that they are sinful inside, having a dead spirit that only Jesus Christ can revive when they acknowledge they are sinners, turn away from their sins, and confess that Jesus is the only Lord. There is no other real peace that can be acquired by man apart from this simple truth. If a religion does not have the Lord Jesus Christ as the only way to God, that religion only has a cheap imitation of real peace.

    you misunderstand many things and are so blind by your one sided view that you have failed to research the basics.
    the pentagram is a symbol of the four elements and the fifth element known as the spirit (not sure if you have heard of that word before) it shows the spirit’s power over said elements and depicts that one can control the elements if the spirit’s will is there.
    Then you say that when we communicate with angels we are in fact communicating with demons. are you then saying that angels do not exist and/or can not be reached? harry, have you ever communicated with your guardian angel? i have. i have also communicated with my loving spirit guide named Alastaar. they are only there to protect us. angels and demons alike may be contacted, it is up to you which you decide to talk to.
    You go on to say that “In other words, he wanted to break down the Christian belief that Jesus is the only way to God, or other “divisive” doctrines, so that all mankind could unite to follow his god in a one world religion.” you can not say “in other words” because you do not know his opinion. he is clearly stating, by what you wrote, that we should form together and agree. be peaceful, is that not what God wishes for? Peace?
    And, again, you state falsely that the Temporal Power is the complete power of the pope over ALL nations. it is, in fact, the pope’s power over Catholics, from which your religion descended.
    To answer Penultima’s question, the half moons are a symbol of the goddess, and in this portrait a symbol of balance. the goddess symbol, looking like this )0( shows the three stages of Her life. maiden, mother, and crone. this is linked with the stages of the moon.

    I am here to say that you sir are a poor excuse for a Christian because you have no earthly right to judge. or do you not accept that part of the Bible? you are to love EVERYONE regardless of race sex or CREED. or did you skip over that part also? another important fact is that the Christians created Satan in their stories so that there was a negative. we could all live in a place where everyone went to paradise, but no. there must immediately be evil! God said let there be no god greater than I. well they are all equal harry. as long as we love the deity that we follow, they are equal. I love all three of my deities and can not wait to meet them all in the glorious afterlife. in the end we are all striving towards paradise. learn to love harry and you shall find peace.

    Matt 5:43-44
    43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour,
    and hate thine enemy.
    44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,
    do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully
    use you, and persecute you;

    I Jn 4:7
    Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one
    that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

    1. The “Christian” belief was here before the roman church my friend. It was after the paganistic beliefs couldn’t be forced onto everyone else, that Constantine thought of a good lie to win a war , then the Holy Roman Empire forced this new, very biased Christian religion onto everyone that was in countries Rome ruled. The beliefs/rules of today’s Christian religion was enforced under penalties of death over 2000 years ago, and now it is known as the truth. One verse in the bible should be enough to make people desire to be more educated on this matter, my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, or seek wisdom of the Lord, or the parable of walking in the light, cause right now y’all in the dark.

      What level are you? Most witches, members of secret societies, etc don’t even know what they are into until they get to certain levels. My dad was a 32nd degree Freemason. I say was because he did his research and God revealed to him the truth behind the society. According to its leader, Albert Pike, Freemason and Masons alike serve Lucifer. It is written in the text given to those of the 29th degree. Mason’s aren’t privy to this fact until they reach the 29th degree. My father, however, refused to read said text because of the author’s association with racism and the KKK. But read it to learn more about the very group he was a part of. Also upon further reaearch, my father discovered that the first levels of Masonry mirror that of witchcraft and that the Mormon church adopts many mason rituals with in turn translates to pagan/satanic rituals.

      Also, you put the scriptures out there, but it is common for witches to use scriptures in their practice and not because they have reverence for God.

      I hope you find true peace that is found in the one and only God, that is the God of Abraham and Jacob. I hope that you learn more about the group that you are a part of and see it for what it really is.

  8. [i am a loving Wiccan witch]

    Yes, you are loving. You are in love with evil and with every evil thing and evil person in agreement with your wicked doctrines.

    [i am a follower of the Roman Catholic church… the base of all Christian and Lutheran and Protestant beliefs.]

    Wrong! The roman catholic church was started by Constantine the Great in the 300s AD. True Christianity started centuries before catholicism when the Lord Jesus Christ came to earth. I am not “Protestant.” I believe in Jesus Christ, who hath saved me, and called me with an holy calling, not according to my works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to me in Christ Jesus before the world began [2 Timothy 1:9]. My faith has nothing whatsoever to do with the false religion of roman catholicism which is the harlot wearing scarlet in the book of Revelation. So it’s no wonder that a Wiccan is a proud member of the roman catholic church.

    [the pentagram is a symbol of the four elements and the fifth element known as the spirit]

    Yes. And the spirits symbolized by the pentagram are Satan and his fallen angels who kept not their first estate [heaven], but left their own habitation, who God hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day [Jude 1:6]

    [Then you say that when we communicate with angels we are in fact communicating with demons. are you then saying that angels do not exist and/or can not be reached?…i have also communicated with my loving spirit guide named Alastaar.]

    Your spirit guide is a devil. For Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers [and his fallen angels] also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. [2 Corinthians 11:14-15]

    You communicate, or pray, to your angel and praying to angels is the worship of angels. I, as a true believer in Jesus Christ, have no need to pray to a created being like an angel when I can go directly to their righteous Creator who rules over the whole universe. The Bible is against praying to (worshipping) angels–“Let no man beguile [deceive] you of your reward in a voluntary [false, phony] humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,” [Colossians 2:18]

    [you can not say “in other words” because you do not know his (Eliphas Levi’s) opinion.]

    I’ve read some of Eliphas Levi’s words, so I do, in fact, know his opinion about embracing ecumenism while rejecting Christ as being the only way to God.

    [you state falsely that the Temporal Power is the complete power of the pope over ALL nations. it is, in fact, the pope’s power over Catholics, from which your religion descended.]

    No, my “religion” did not descend from catholicism as I explained above. When Constantine started his false church, Christianity already existed and was vibrant. True Christians knew roman catholicism was a cheap imitation of the real thing and they refused to join and were persecuted as a result.

    Temporal power is the belief that the Pope has power over ALL nations, not just catholics. They just don’t preach this doctrine out in the open because most people would reject it. This teaching went underground at Vatican II. But everytime you see a Pope landing in some foreign country and bending over to kiss the ground, this is symbolic of his belief in his power over all nations.

    [the half moons are a symbol of the goddess]

    You can bow down to the moon all you want, and your false goddess, but the Bible calls this idolatry and “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters…shall inherit the kingdom of God,” [1 Corinthians 6:9-10]

    [how can God, who loves everyone, want you to be bias?]

    You talk against bias, but you clearly have a bias of your own. You are biased against the truth that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. God’s word says, “He that believeth on the Son (Jesus Christ) hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him,” [John 3:36] And this is the same John who you quoted out of context at the end of your comment.

    Yes, God is biased against evil. Revelation 20:15 says, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” In Revelation 21:8 it says, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

    The Bible tells us those who are in the book of life are the ones who believe only in Christ. Those who are unbelievers, like you, and sorcerers, like you, and idolaters, like you, and liars, like you, are thrown into the lake of fire. Once again, this is the same John you quoted that wrote this. But I hope you see the error of your ways and repent of your sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ before this happens to you.

    [another important fact is that the Christians created Satan in their stories]

    Christians did not create Satan. Satan was mentioned in ancient writings that precede any writings of Christians. The book of Job, which is a book written earlier than Genesis, talks about Satan. The prophet Isaiah talks about Satan’s (Lucifer) origins in Isaiah 14 and it was written in the 700s B.C. The prophet Ezekiel also talked about Satan’s (king of Tyrus, anointed cherub) origins in Ezekiel 28 which was written in the 500s B.C.

    Wiccans believe in lies, so it’s no surprise that you can’t accept what the Bible says or what a true Christian tells you. But I rebuke all of your lies and false doctrines in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And I pray for you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that you will be saved.

    Just for future reference–there is a snowball’s chance in hell that I will ever take spiritual advice from someone who is openly wiccan or a witch.

      1. Jerome,

        You really haven’t thought your argument through. Your statement is just a regurgitation of what others have said to encourage themselves in their sin. You scoff at God’s word because you love your sin and because of that you haven’t taken the time to really understand things. Another commenter came to my blog recently and left a very similar comment to yours so I’ll copy and paste here what I told her:

        ‘…this following statement of yours shows ignorance–> “The first problem is that Lucifer is a Latin name. So how did it find its way into a Hebrew manuscript, written before there was a Roman language?” This is a faulty question based on a false premise. Lucifer means “light bearer.” It is the English translation for the Hebrew word Helel, or “light bearer.” The latin word Lucifer did not find its way into the Hebrew text. It found its way into English translations of the Hebrew text because the English translation of the Hebrew word “helel” is “lucifer.” The English language took the word from the Latin language. In case you didn’t know, the English language borrows many words from other languages. So the question you presented above is not even a valid question. Maybe you should take courses on etymology and translation.

        ‘We know Isaiah 14 is translated correctly and correctly connects Lucifer to Satan as the same person because other scripture confirms it. The English translators had all 66 books of the Bible so they could compare scriptures to make sure they translated correctly. To prove it, Isaiah 14:12 talks about a light-bearing person who fell from heaven. Then Jesus in Luke 10:18 talks about Satan like lightning falling from heaven and Rev. 12:9 says the dragon, aka Satan, was cast out of heaven. Basically, what I’m saying is the evidence proves your comment is nonsense.’

    1. sumdumb,

      You have bought into revisionist history as far as the Bible is concerned. Constantine and his flunkies put together bastardized manuscripts to form what today is known as the Catholic Bible. The true manuscripts which were preserved by real God-fearing believers in Christ were brought together to form the Textus Receptus, which is the Authorized Version.

      Since you’re not Christian, here’s a truth u may not be aware of–Satan always tries to mimic whatever God does. So he found some deceived people to help Constantine create a mimic of the true Bible.

      God said–”Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” That means belief in God’s word, the Bible, gives spiritual, eternal life. It’s so important that God claims it’s more important than food.

      [before the book there were many Gods]

      No there weren’t. But you’d disagree because you believe the lies you’ve been taught since you’re in the world and not a believer in Christ. Man, in the beginning, worshipped the God of the Bible–Yahweh. Then after the fall of the first man and woman, eventually “…when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things…Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator.” [Romans 1:21-23, 25]

      Man turned his back on the one true God and came up with many gods who mankind made based on God’s creatures, including humans.

      [how can someone be evil if they do their best to be a good person??]

      Because God’s word says, “But we [humans] are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags.” [Isaiah 64:6]. Jesus said “there is none good but one, that is, God.” [Matthew 19:17] God is the only good person in the whole universe and he considers all our good works as worthless rags unless we confess Jesus as Lord. This is why Jesus said “…ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he [God, the Messiah], ye shall die in your sins,” [John 8:24]

      [oh yeah and did’nt J.C. say blessed he whom is full of darkness for the light in the body is the eye????]

      No, he didn’t. You’re not even close. Here’s the scripture you misquoted–

      “The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single [focused], thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.” [Luke 11:34-35]

      Jesus said (about His life) in John 10:18-

      “No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”

      The nails did not hold Jesus on the cross. His love for us did, and His desire to take the punishment for our sins so that we can be acceptable to God.

  13. nik,

    [can you please tell me how jesus left this world i mean how he died?]

    Jesus was crucified on a Roman cross after Jewish religious leaders brought false accusations against him so they could put him to death. Jewish leaders, because of their jealousy and hatred, persuaded a very reluctant Pontius Pilate to order Christ’s death by crucifixion.

    [i am sure your answer is ‘ becoz of jews’. then why you people forgave them and why they are still on this world?]

    Because the Jews are not the only ones responsible for Jesus’ death. Jesus, who is God, knew before he came to Earth as a human that he would die. That was his ultimate purpose for coming here. His mission was to die for the sins of all mankind [1 John 2:2] from Adam, the first human, to the last person who will be born right before God brings the present Earth to an end.

    This is why true Christians are not preoccupied with blaming the Jews, even if they were wrong. All of us are in some way responsible for Christ’s death. But Jesus’ death was not the end of the story. Since he came back to life on the third day of being in the grave, the Jews ultimately did not win in the end. It is pointless to ask why the Jews still exist for crimes committed by their forefathers when the majority of people in the world violate God’s laws and reject him, just like some Jews do. All humans can only be saved as a result of the undeserved favor we receive from God by believing that Jesus Christ is Lord whether we are Jew or non-Jew. All humans have an evil nature, so claiming or implying that Jews deserve to be extinct is hypocritical.

    [i believe that the christianity is true but not the new one coz its been changed by american people about 400 years ago]

    I don’t know what you mean here because true Christianity has never changed. There are many false religious systems set up by humans that call themselves Christian, but they’re not really Christianity. Newer versions of the Bible which are not based on the Textus Receptus manuscripts may have tweaked the story, but Bibles like the English King James Version is based on the truthful manuscripts and did not change the story. Either way, the Jews are not the problem you should be concerned about. Your worst problem, like the rest of humanity, is your sinful nature and you, like the rest of us, need to have Jesus Christ as your Lord.

  14. I think this is a well written article and you are obviously very well read as far as The Bible is concerned. But I would encourage you to speak with kindness, as it is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, which Jesus speaks of in detail. We are to love our neighbors, and that is not only expressed in our sharing of the Gospel with them, but also the manner in which we do so. Jesus was a humble and loving man, who spoke the truth and performed miracles from a kind and compassionate heart, unlike the wise priests of His day who preached and healed out of pride and self-righteousness. Christ’s love is neither condemning nor judgmental, but a source of freedom from our flesh and the consequences of our sin.

    And after all, isn’t that what we Christians are: followers of Christ? We are to follow the things He did but also the manner in which He did them.

  16. It still amazes me, how much fear and interrogation are used in the christian religion. Baphomet is a sigil (or symbol) representing the universal union between positive and negative energies. It is parallel to the symbol of the Tao (yin yang) and can be considered one and the same. Many people associate Freemasons with the view of Baphomet as a symbol of wisdom and higher intelligence although there is no documented evidence of Freemasonry’s belief in Baphomet.The name appears to be a combination of two Greek words baphe and metis meaning “absorption of knowledge.” A popular misconception is that Baphomet represents “evil” or the Christian Satan. This is only because of similarity of the goats head. In the 19th century the name came into popular English-speaking consciousness with the publication of various works of pseudo-history that tried to link the Knights Templar with conspiracy theories elaborating on their suppression. In 1854, with the publication of Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie by Eliphas Lévi the name Baphomet became associated with a “Sabbatic Goat.”
    The Christian God is a god of hidden lies. No one can know the Father. The Father keeps himself hidden up above us and can not be reached.
    Satan is the giver of knowledge. To follow God is to follow blindly. To follow Satan is more likely to be opened to the truth.

    1. squees,

      The genuine gospel of the Bible that true Christians preach happens to be the truth even if you hate it. The definition of “interrogation” means “the process of asking questions,” so is that the word you intended to use or did you mean to use “intimidation”? Because there is nothing wrong with asking questions if you seek the truth in a harmless way. But if you mean intimidation, you are not accurately describing true Christianity. It is pagans who have tried to intimidate, persecute,and kill Christians since Christianity began because you hate it when the truth about God, sin, and the consequences of sin are preached.

      As far as your argument that Baphomet is an innocent symbol, if you wanted to use examples of its innocence, you should not have used Taoism or Freemasonry as examples. They are both steeped in occultic deceptions. But then again I guess you are too, based on your comment.

      Baphomet was tied to the Knights Templar by their own admission in the few historical documents that remain that they themselves created centuries ago. So it started way before Eliphas Levi came along. So you’re either lying or you’re ignorant of the history you claim to know. Personally, I believe you state this false history from a deceptive heart since you believe that Satan is the giver of knowledge.

      Your spiritual father, Satan, is a liar and deceiver and you have embraced his character which makes you a liar and deceiver just like him.

      To follow God is to follow spiritual truth to understanding why things are the way they are on Earth and in the universe. God has proven that he says the truth and is the originator of truth since throughout the ages the Bible has proven true in its history and its science. Archaeology has proven the Bible true time and time again and cosmology even shows that what the Bible says is true and I have given all kinds of scientific proof of this in several other posts. But we Christians have accepted by faith that God has spoken the whole truth and nothing but the truth. It is when we accept what he says that we then see how he backs up what he says in the Bible.

      Your god, on the other hand, is the one that people like you follow blindly. Satan has blinded your mind and you’ve willingly given in to the lies he has told you. You really need to wake up before it’s too late.

      You think you’re on the right path, but there is a way that seemeth right unto a man when the end thereof is the way of death. And that’s the path you’re on. Oh, BTW, God has shown us Christians how things will turn out in the end. Even when people like you will continue to cause the death of Christians and will promote your hatred of God–even when it looks like Christianity is losing the battle against your evil–GOD WILL WIN IN THE END AND SATAN WILL LOSE! Satan and all his followers will end up burning in the lake of fire. BELIEVE THAT!

      So maybe it’s time for you to switch teams by turning away from your sins and bowing down to the true God–the Lord Jesus Christ.

    So people are delusional if they don’t believe that: a talking snake is the cause of all evil, that god used to like blood sacrifices and genocide, that god (omniscient, omnipotent) expresses REMORSE after flooding the earth and promises not to do it again… even though he could have just seen the future, that there is a huge amount of literature that is far older than the oldest found copies of any books of the Old Testament that tell stories that the Old Testament could have simply modified (one example the Epic of Gilgamesh and other Sumerian tales), there are many biblical prophecies which never came true, god demands that people who work on the sabbath be condemned to death and also rebellious children who drink too much (Leviticus), and that in all of his wisdom… God couldnt think of any better way to try to save humanity than to send his son on a suicide mission in Jerusalem, and that the entire planets way of averting ETERNAL torture is to believe in him and only him, and that a book that is supposedly written by God himself but in strewn with inconsistency. There really wasn’t a better way?

    The answer is… Yes, there is.

    How do we answer what the Bible really is then? Since even a small amount of literary criticism instantly shows it isn’t the infallible word of God.

    It is a collection of writings (with huge amounts of alternate texts from the same period omitted, read them and you’ll see why) by a group of Bronze Age and approximately 1900 year old men who were trying to make sense of the world based on observations, and based on mystic experiences that became dilluted into theology. Read Exodus, Moses was learned in the Egyptian tradition, an initiatory mystery religion. They were savage and warlike, and their God became savage and warlike. Then a Jewish Mystic named Jesus comes along and tries to overturn the violent Jehovah into a God of Love and Forgiveness, he is killed as a revolutionary and after his death diefied and the hell filled guilt ridden visions that were in the scribe’s minds polluted what probably started as a decent philosophy.

    But who knows, I don’t have the false sense of absolutely being write as you do so it probably won’t matter to those running Christianity 2.0 as their operating system, but to anyone not brainwashed beyond hope… Look at the stars at night, feel the fresh air, be thankful that you are alive now, give up your ego-games, make amends, raise good kids, love your spouse, and be kind and never stop learning. Not because you are afraid of punishment, but because you are a thinking human with the humility and awe you should have while revolving through infinite space on a planet around a star among billions of stars.

    1. Your comments just prove my point about people being delusional who don’t believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

      First of all, a talking snake is not to blame for evil in the world. Adam and Eve are to blame for listening to what Satan told them. And your attacks against the Bible only show your ignorance about the God who created the Earth and the rest of the universe.

      Not all prophecies in the Bible have been fulfilled yet because those unfulfilled prophecies will be fulfilled in the future (duh!). You can’t sit there and say that some of it’s prophecies haven’t been fulfilled as long as the Earth still exists and history is still in the process of being made every day. The Bible has had enough prophecies fulfilled in the past and in today’s times to prove how truthful it is. Your criticisms are nothing more than you accepting without question what you’ve been told by people who hate God like you. You’ve neglected to do your research, because if you actually did research, you would find that the Bible is one of the most historically accurate records ever written and that it is also scientifically sound in what it says.

      And if you did some research, you would know that the story of Noah pre-dates the story of Gilgamesh.

      I have covered the criticisms you raise in several of my other posts so I won’t go into them here. The basic reason you can’t understand the Bible and what it teaches and why Jesus Christ had to come to save mankind by his death is because, for one, you’ve allowed Satan to blind your mind to the truth, and secondly, because “the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” [1 Corinthians 2:14] Since you don’t have the Spirit of God, your spirit inside of you is spiritually dead and you can’t understand who God is and why he does what he does.

      So the bottom line is that you are deceived and therefore delusional. Even if someone explained everything to you concerning the Bible and proved to you how true it is, you still wouldn’t be willing to accept it because you embrace your deceptions, just like the Jews of Jesus’ day who knew for a fact that Christ rose from the dead, but still devised lies to steer people away from the truth.

      If you’re so convinced about the lies you believe, why are you wasting your time trying to debate me about the Bible? The Bible existed way before you or I did and greater people than you have tried to snuff it out but they have all failed and they will always fail. You will fail too. Why? Because God’s word will never pass away, it’s truth will never pass away, and the God who gave his word to us will never pass away.

People just don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. This is a modern statement of how loving first is the only way others will consider your statements.

        While there are so very many passages of scripture that are purely black and white such as the path to eternity being through Christ alone, there are also many “best practices”, if you will, that can be applied in a myriad of ways. None of them right or wrong as long as they are done in love. Proselytizing, for example, can be done in many ways. While the intention is good, the delivery can have the opposite effect if not done purely out of love.

        For example, calling someone a sinner or a liar because of their potentially ignorant association with new age cults, or another religion will likely be received the wrong way. While the statement remains true even if not said, humility and love is lacking. The bible says all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. This is universal and includes you and me. If I was an unbeliever who received a response such as these, I would find Christianity demanding, condemning & without freedom. I would miss the fact that Christianity is quite receiving, loving & with more freedom than you felt before. Most view the God of Christianity as demanding when it’s quite the opposite.

        Hopefully, this message is received as constructive since I mean no attack on you personally or other. In fact, your firm grip on biblical knowledge can have a drastic impact if delivered with humility and love just as Jesus did. Hopefully you can do it, because I find it very difficult holding my tongue when I know I can deliver that last blow that will take them down! But then what…?

  18. You must get to know God in order for him to be real for you Anonymous.
    I am living proof he is real, if you care to take a look at my newest post on Harry’s article on the prophesies that have been proven to have happened here on Earth.
    I hope you decide to really look further, because the belief system you have set up for yourself is going to fail you miserably in a sooner time frame than you think.
    I just love people who think they know what is in the Bible, when it is clear you haven’t read it, just listening to what others have planted in your head. Go out on a limb, I challenge you to start with the books in the New Testament, Get to know the people who walked with Jesus, and heard from God directly, and made sure to write it down. Then go back and start with Genesis, and learn the word of God.
    I was mixed up also for a long time. But as I said before, I have all the proof I will ever need, and you can have that also. Instead of condemning without really knowing what you are talking about, Try instead to learn. Then see if you still feel the same. I’ll pray for you, and I don’t take that statement lightly. I am praying that you are brave enough to really search for answers.

  19. I cannot see how people can believe that the Baphomet is Satan, and that Satan represents evil. Nor that people can believe in a God. What Christianity doesn’t understand is that there is NO proof whatsoever of an existance of a “god” of any form. The only person that one should worship is oneself, as that is the only consistancy in your life.

    Also, I would like to comment on the so called “Seven Deadly Sins (SDS)”.
    These are simply traps to keep people always begging “God” for forgiveness. These so called “SDS” are actually the path to self-fullfillment, and keeps Christians from achieving higher in life, for example :

    Avarice (greed) + Envy + Pride = Aspiration to better oneself, and to revel above others in society.
    As I said, the SDS were carefully selected by Christianity so that man would always be sinning, and therefore is a trap made by Christianity to keep men begging for forgiveness to “God”.

    Anton Szandor LaVey had the right ideas. LaVeyan Satanism is the way forward for humanity.

    1. If you read history to see all of the crimes against humanity and evil committed in the name of Baphomet and Satan, then you would clearly see how they represent evil, unless, of course, you have no conscience.

      As for your statement that there is no proof of God’s existence, that is completely wrong. If you would take some time to search out how accurate the Bible is in its historical statements and events, you would know that it tells the truth. I have done several posts here showing how the Bible predicted events that were then fulfilled years, decades, or centuries after the prophecies were written. I even did a recent series proving scientifically, without using the Bible, the existence of God. You can read them for yourself if you click on my “science” subject in the cloud on the right side of the screen.

      Basically, the Big Bang theory, the 2nd law of thermodynamics, the fact that the universe is expanding, the radiation afterglow existing in space from the Big Bang, the existence of great galaxy seeds in the radiation afterglow in space, and Einsteins theory of general relativity all point to the fact that the universe had a beginning from nothing and that a Supreme Being had to have created the whole universe. This fact has already been attested to by great scientists like Einstein, Hubble, Robert Jastrow, Arno Penzias, Robert Wilson, and other scientists. All of these scientists, with the exception of Jastrow, got Nobel prizes for their scientific discoveries and admitted that the Bible was accurate in its account of the Creation and in the existence of God.

      So for you to sit there & say there is no proof of God’s existence just means you’re just too lazy to do your research and that you would much rather embrace a false doctrine that caters to your faulty, sinful way of thinking. You would much rather have a god created in your own evil image. It’s easier that way and doesn’t require too much thought on your part. Furthermore, you just couldn’t fathom how off-base you are. Then you would have to admit to yourself (gasp!) that you’re actually wrong, and the Bible is right.

      Since the Bible has already been proven to be accurate, anyone who has researched the history recorded in it and who is logical can conclude that the God of the Bible must exist and that the Bible is telling the truth. Therefore, what he says about sin, Satan, and salvation must also be true. But then they must have faith to embrace that truth and apply it to their lives.

      Anton LaVey was a pervert and a miscreant. He was a disciple of Aleister Crowley. Crowley, who LaVey followed, was involved in sacrificing humans (mainly children), committed every type of sexually deviant behavior he could get away with from bestiality to bisexuality to pedophilia, called up devils in seances, abused every drug he could get his hands on, just to name a few things he did. Then Anton LaVey came along and did the same twisted, ungodly things. How is that supposed to be the way forward for humanity? If anything, he’s reverting humanity back to barbarism and illogical, immoral, anarchist behavior that would make us worse than beasts who roam the wild.

      But thanks for leaving a comment. That means you automatically go on my prayer list since I know you stopped by. And I’ll be praying for you in the name above every name–the Lord Jesus Christ–with the hope that you will one day surrender to the true master of the universe and experience freedom from slavery to sin.

Yes we are in a war against your evil ruler down here on earth. Go ahead and pledge yourself to that monster when the Anti-Christ takes over and forces people to choose him.You will become a robotic slave, for your master cares only for himself. As for us that have faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, we shall be protected, and receive eternal life with God. We will walk on streets paved with gold, and those who choose the way of your Anton LaVey, will burn in the pit of fire and brimstone. Brother or Sister, forever will be a very long time. Don’t you ever ask yourself, why all these Satan followers in entertainment end up broke, sick and dead? If he is so great why is that?

  22. Harry, give up man.. you’re just beating round the bush, trying to prove ‘unbelievers’ wrong by quoting from the very thing they’re finding fault with – the bible. And it doesn’t really seem like ‘God’ influences us or the world, if he does exist, that is.. No one can really deny the existence of Wicked people living really happily (whatever happened to the righteous god) and God-fearing, pious people, who’re so ‘in-love’ with God, that they’re living the rest of their lives miserably. What do they stand to gain, at the end of it all ??
    Just have to admit that it just sucks fot the people who are putting all their faith in God, for they would have ended up much happier if they had put that very faith or trust in themselves.
    Finally, forgive me if I’m being a little rude, but for all you know te Bible (I think you’re thorough with it), you’re just acting like most priests now-days- get this feeling in your head that ONLY you are going to be saved and ALL the others are going to suffer. I don think CONDEMNING everyone else around you who doesn’t necessarily believe what you do is what your GOD wants. If god can’t really help the suffering, i really don’t think there’s any need to worship him. It’s not worth arguing that those who’re suffering are actually BEING PUNISHED for all the evil they’ve been upto or by saying THEY’LL BE REWARDED IN HEAVEN…

    1. After all that God has done for me and after all the promises he’s kept and after all the prophecies that have been fulfilled from his word leads me to say that I will never give up. The very thing that unbelievers find fault with–the Bible–has been proven to be factually accurate time after time. For instance, there was a time that people didn’t believe the Hittite people existed like the Bible says, then in 1906, ancient clay tablets were found that gave the history of Hittites and their empire. People didn’t believe that Canaanites were as evil as the Bible says they were in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, then ancient clay tablets were found in Syria from 1929 to 1937 and 1948 that talked about the Canaanites and all of their immoral practices like sacrificing their babies to their pagan gods and their bestiality.

      The Bible also said the Earth was round [Proverbs 8:27, Isaiah 40:22] centuries before scientists discovered it was really round and Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims had all said the Earth was flat. With the exception of Revelation, the New Testament was complete by the 60s AD and in the gospels, Jesus predicted in the 30s AD that Jerusalem and its temple would be overthrown by the Romans and his prediction came true 40 years after his prediction in 70 AD. People doubted that Pontius Pilate existed like it said in the Bible until ruins were found in the ruins of Caesarea in Israel that named Pontius Pilate as the Roman “Prefect of Judea.”

      So history and science prove the facts mentioned in the Bible. Those who don’t believe that it’s completely true lack faith based on facts and they are historically ignorant as well as scientifically ignorant.

      God helps suffering people every day. You just don’t see it because you’re not really looking for it. You’re just looking for some way to justify your own sins since you love sin, so God’s not doing what you want, when you want, and how you want is just your way of justifying your wickedness. Those who genuinely put their trust in the Lord are not miserable as you claim. By your statement I would say you really don’t know any genuine Christians and this is just another way you’re trying to encourage yourself in your evil.

      If unbelievers are so happy, why do they drink so much or use drugs or cheat on their spouses or sleep around with so many people like they do? Then all they have to show for it is their own unhappiness. Why do so many unbelievers commit suicide? Why are they so unhappy even when they get lots of money? True Christians, on the other hand, are rather well-adjusted in our society and are content.

      I serve God because he has proven that he can be trusted. My faith is in him because the record has shown century after century that he is reliable.

      And I’ll end by saying that if you want to get your point across in a believable way, you should probably use a spell-checker and work on your grammar a little bit.

      1. Harry,

        Sorry to post so many times, but I can’t help myself 🙂

        I would like to point out to your readers that becoming a Christian and following Jesus doesn’t suddenly make the entire universe easy or all of your bad habits & additions go away. In some cases, people are set free from it, but in others, it still remains a battle.

        I have fought with drinking, smoking and other bad habits in my life, but God is always gracious & forgives me. Christianity is a walk and sometimes you trip or fall, but it makes you appreciate the days you can run. It doesn’t guarantee that every day of your life will be joyous and happy. It does guarantee that at the end of the day you can put your mind at rest by trusting God and placing your worries with Him.

        I have known Christians who fall into alcoholism & even one who committed suicide. Temptations still exist, but shifting your focus to God helps with this. Becoming a Christian is the very first step, but certainly not the last. We still have daily choices to make; some of which can make us very unhappy and maladjusted.

    2. Anonymous_2,

      Unfortunately, when people hear about Christians, they think of fire, brimstone, the crusades & going to hell if you don’t turn from your wicked ways. A summary of the Christianity from another person just won’t cut it. You have to research it for yourself.

      People constantly think that God is this “cosmic Santa Claus” that sits in the sky and will do their bidding if they just pray hard enough. The truth is, He has a will of His own much like we have plans for our own lives. It all comes down to choice. God has choices just like we do. However, it is not in His nature to be evil therefore He doesn’t (won’t) sin, but He still has the choice to do it just like Jesus had the same choice when he was 100% man. It’s difficult to understand that the choice is still there even if you never take it. Satan, on the other hand, is evil by nature and interacts with this world to a large degree. There are terrible things that happen in life that are most certainly a direct result of someone’s choice. What I’m trying to say is that we, as humans with a sinful nature, are headed down the path of evil which ultimately ends up in that “hot place”, for lack of a better way to describe eternal damnation in fire and torment. GOD doesn’t send us there… we send ourselves. Without the choice to worship God and choose eternal life through Jesus, what better are we than robots created to do God’s bidding? Love is a choice. If you made someone love you with no other option, how would that make you feel? It’s ultimately just you loving yourself.

      A world without choice wouldn’t exist. It would be fabricated like a computer with programmed emotions. Is that really love?

      Some punishments in life are just a result of a bad choice. You wouldn’t blindly put your fingers into a table saw and blame God or the devil for your missing fingers, would you? In the same way, some wars are started simply because of a poor choice. While God could certainly have put an end to it with a wave of His hand, we wouldn’t learn from our choices. Unfortunately, those choices can impact innocent people.

      We were created free to love and hate. God deserves our praise even if the most He ever did was chose to give us life and the ability to love. Would you want life any other way?

    1. Jesus of Nazareth was born a Jew, but came to fulfill the Mosaic law on our behalf and to die for our sins. God established the Mosaic law as a temporary fix until it was time for him to come to Earth as the man we know as the Lord Jesus. Therefore, if we believe by faith that Jesus is the Lord (i.e. God), that he died for our sins, and that he rose from the dead, then he saves us from sin and from the punishment of hell to live with him after our physical death. This is all that is required to become a Christian. Then after we are saved, we do works in our lives to please God. These are the basics of Christianity.

      Roman Catholicism falsely teaches that we must do works to be saved, like baptism in the Catholic Church, membership in the Catholic Church, taking the eucharist, etc. But it is by grace (God’s unmerited, undeserved favor toward us) that we are saved through faith, not by works.

      I would then have to ask–are you saved based on what I just said? Then I would suggest you get a King James Version of the Bible and read Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to get understanding about who Jesus really is. And in the meantime ask God to reveal to you which church or what believers he wants you to associate with for worship. The Holy Spirit will then lead you in the right direction if you listen to his guidance as you continue to read the Bible, his word.

    1. The Bible is indeed full of wisdom but if one does not come to the realization that it highlights man’s ultimate need, then none of the wisdom in it will do you any good. And man’s ultimate need is to have a restored relationship with God by being saved from the evil nature all humans inherited from the first man Adam. That salvation can only come through Jesus Christ, the sinless Lord whose blood is the only thing that cleanses us from sin. The only thing Anton LaVey’s teachings or Satan can do for you is lead you to the everlasting punishment of hell. They cannot save you from your evil nature to which you are enslaved. Genuine freedom can only come through Jesus Christ.

      I am not arrogant, but confident in what the Bible says and in the unfailing, righteous, almighty power of Jehovah. LaVey’s so-called power could not save him from death. Satan’s power could not keep him from getting kicked out of heaven and won’t prevent his ultimate doom in the lake of fire. But the Bible gives us a more sure word of prophecy to let us know that the power of people like LaVey and his spiritual father Satan are anemic in comparison to the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Jehovah.

      And about Albert Einstein, no one is completely sure where he stood spiritually. But his theory of general relativity backs up what the Bible says about time, matter, and energy having a beginning whether he believed in God or not.

    1. You said “You don’t know the truth, and neither do I”, but is that really true? If you don’t know the truth, then how do you know your statement is true? In order for you to declare that I don’t know the truth, you have to base such a statement on something you believe to be true. By default, you have implied that there is absolute truth, otherwise you cannot claim that “‘true, false, right, or wrong’ have no place in religion.” If there were no truth, you could not make this declaration. Since you claim that you don’t know the truth, this means I can dismiss everything you said because it isn’t true.

      Your statement is utter nonsense, poppycock, and folderol and shows how blind you are because this statement is self-defeating. Since you “do not profess to know the ‘truth'” then you have all but admitted how foolish you are for even leaving your comment to argue against me. If you really believe you don’t know the truth, you would’ve kept your nonsensical comment to yourself. Therefore, in your self-defeat you have proven that absolute truth exists. If it didn’t exist then how could an architect build a safe building according to exact measurements and standards? If all of his builders could not agree on 1 foot equalling 12 inches because they all had their own truth, then any building they would build would not be safe. If I punch you in the face because I believe this is the true way to handle my dispute with you, then you would be wrong to object to my punching you, since you don’t know the truth. And a police officer trying to arrest me for assaulting you would be wrong to do so. That’s just how ridiculous your argument is.

      But, you may ask, what do these examples have to do with religion? It is good religion that prompts us to make laws that tells us we should avoid doing things (like building unsafe buildings) that threaten people’s lives and to treat people as we ourselves want to be treated.

I see it took you a good 20 years to catch up, and it seems you new comers “know it all” (as usual). I don’t see anything negative or bad about Alphonse Louis Constants works, such as “Transcendental Magic,” or “The History of Magic.” In fact, for those, like myself, who have actually studied and read these works (which obviously you didn’t), we know that Jesus Christ is spoken of VERY HIGHLY. Eliphas Levi also holds the Bible in high esteem, that it is God’s Word, and Jesus is the Son of God. I believe you are ignorant and blind in your “fundamental christianity,” and cannot penetrate the great notions Constant has shared.

    This symbol has little or nothing to do with the devil, or Satan, and has everything to do with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. In fact, it is designed to frighten, or scare off those who are not ready, profane, and unworthy.

    Acts 2:3 “They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.”

    These “tongues of fire” are none other than the 3 pronged torch/flame on Baphomet’s head — the Holy Spirit — that which obviously you have never experienced. I have.

    Baphomet is an atbash cypher for “Sophia.” Sofia is Wisdom. What does the Bible say about Wisdom?

    Proverbs 8:22 “The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works, before his deeds of old”

    Now, as someone who has personally experienced, first hand, what this engraving, “The Baphomet,” is — as someone who has “become Baphomet,” — someone who has received the true and real Holy Spirit, the tongues of flame “γλῶσσαι ὡσεὶ πυρός” — I can say the OP (Original Pos[t]er) really doesn’t know what they are talking about, and is steering people away from truth. You meant well, but are truly causing more harm than good.

  33. The usual Christian taking a shot at us Catholics, when you gonna learn that the only reason your religion exist is because a king who wanted to marry all the women he wanted got almost miscommunicate by the Pope so he taught :I’m gonna make my own religion so I can do whatever I want” I agree with you on this image going against everything a christian stands for and I do believe in Jesus Christ the son of God, but that doesn’t give you the right to call the “Catholic” Christ a false Christ even only out of respect, but I know when people come up with new things out of original things they gotta make the original look wrong or obsolete, Christ build his Church on a rock named Peter, our first Pope, read the Bible or did you change that too?! God help you guys I pray the Virgin Mary mother of God to intercede for you to her son our Lord to forgive your blasphemous words.

    1. Michael, the fact you pray to the “virgin mary” proves how false Catholicism is. And the fact you believe Christ built his church on Peter is another falsehood. I’ve already point out such poppycock at this link: https://sunandshield.wordpress.com/2007/04/11/sweet-deceptions-catholicism-and-christianity-blow-by-blow/

      Jesus is the only rock that the church can be built on. If you’ve got any other rock as the foundation, it’s the wrong foundation. Jesus said, “Thou art Peter (a small stone), and upon this rock (huge boulder) I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
      The rock, or huge boulder, that the church is built on is the fact that Jesus is the Christ, the son of the living God. All those who confess that same confession that Peter did are on the rock of Christ, not the rock of Peter. At one point Jesus called Peter “Satan” when Peter tried to say Jesus was wrong about his own death by crucifixion.

      The true church started way before Henry VIII’s shenanigans. Roman Catholicism began when Constantine saw that he couldn’t get rid of the true church so he made a cheap imitation and claimed that the early leaders of the true church (like Peter & Clement of Rome) were the Popes of his false one. Your account is revisionist history pushed by the Vatican. You’ve been brainwashed with false info. May I suggest you get your brain washed by the truth by getting your heart right with God through his son Jesus?

  34. Clearly you have no real understanding of anything the Catholic Church teaches. I would make my points to you, but it is really clear that what we have here is a difference of some philosophical, preconceived notions that prevent you from being able to have a conversation regarding the information that you claim to know about a faith you and not a member of. I admire your spirit and fire to pursue and love God, but I would encourage you to take great care in your prayer and discernment, both for your own sake and for those who may believe you or follow you. Whatever may be true, I ask the LORD God, the true God, to bless, guide, and keep you and all who read this message. Love is more important than knowledge in our faith, so may we be filled with it and pour it out upon one another. True peace upon you. If you are interested in hearing what Catholicism really teaches, then reply and I will show you the difference between what people think we teach and what we actually teach.

    1. I’ve spoken to enough Catholics and have been to enough Catholic websites to know all about the false beliefs Catholics cling to. My link in my previous comment even directs readers to the specific Catholic documents where one can find everything I stated. So your comment is basically telling people not to believe what they can read for themselves from the catechism about Catholicism’s falsehoods which don’t line up with the Bible.

      [Love is more important than knowledge in our faith]

      So in other words we should just overlook the false doctrines Catholicism has for the sake of going along to get along & just don’t mind the truth if it brings conflict. That’s not genuine love. Genuine love is when someone cares enough about someone else that they see is on the wrong path to lovingly and firmly show them they’re wrong. Then they lovingly and firmly point out the right path to them. The love you’re talking about isn’t really love. It’s the fear of men. It’s fearing men so much that you avoid mentioning truth so as not to get them upset with you because you’re more concerned about someone liking you more than you are about pleasing God.

    1. There are several reasons we know that you & the rest of us aren’t gods. You don’t have power over your sin or death like the true Godhead does. You can’t predict things down to the details like the true Godhead does. You haven’t made an accurate, detailed prophecy that has then come to pass like the true Godhead has. You are confined to space, matter, and time, unlike the true Godhead.

      If a god is to be worshiped, that god has to be proven trustworthy, non-contradictory, and must provide accurate, true information at all times. If they don’t, then that means they are prone to mistakes or are liars and everyone who has lived or will ever live knows that liars cannot be trusted and are not worthy of worship. You have shown yourself to be a liar, therefore you cannot be trusted and are not worthy of worship or to be called a god.

      How do I know you’re not a god? Wouldn’t a god know how to give correct spelling & grammar at all times since spelling & grammar render information? Yet, you misspell words & use incorrect grammar in your comment. If you can’t even get that correct, how do you expect us to believe you’re a god?

      If gods must provide accurate, true info at all times, then how can you say every religion is one? If something is one, it never contradicts itself. Buddhism was started by a Hindu who became disgruntled with the Hindu teachings & practices. So Siddhartha started his own religion on the basis that he believed Hinduism was incorrect and full of lies. Islam was started hundreds of years after Jesus Christ and he criticized Judaism & Christianity for not fulfilling the correct teachings, then added his own teachings as an additional revelation to what the Bible says. But his history in the Koran have been shown to be inaccurate in the facts.

      Even Taoism contradicts other religions & itself. Taoists claim the idea of non-action. That aggression or competition are unnecessary to make things happen or to win battles. But in order to get a job, they have to submit a resume to a potential employer and have an interview that has to be competitive in order for them to be hired. They contradict themselves. Tao, a term meaning “the way,” espouses that it’s philosophy is the only correct way, which by default places itself in competition to all other beliefs and practices. Therefore, contradicting itself.

      Now if all religions are one, then they would not be in competition with each other in their basic teachings and none of them would have their claims of exclusivity. Since they all have claims of exclusivity, it is up to us to figure out whose exclusivity clause is telling the complete truth. If one were to be honest with oneself, Jesus Christ is the only one who gives us complete truth.

      Since you have shown yourself inaccurate on these points about the religions and have shown yourself to be a liar, you are not a god. I can’t place my trust in you and you aren’t worthy to be worshiped by me or anyone else, including yourself.

      When it comes to sexual orientation, since God created sex, he’s the one who has the final say on what’s right & wrong regarding sexual practices. Who’s report will you believe, God’s or man’s? I choose to believe God’s report that any sex outside of God-established marriage between man & woman is sin.

      23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2

        […it is up to us to respond to that persecution in a manner that would glorify God. Rather than stooping down to the level of those that anger you, respond in kindness, the way that Jesus would have.]

        Jesus and his apostles respond in various ways in various conversations. For you to assume that I didn’t respond in a manner that fits your own personal preferences to Jesus’ responses doesn’t mean I’m wrong. It just means you have a different preference. I responded in love and righteous anger to some comments and responded in love and gentleness to other comments. Neither Jesus nor his disciples were always soft-spoken when it came to addressing false doctrine. Here are some examples:

        “12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” Matthew 21

        “39 And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

        40 Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?

        41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.

        42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

        43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

        44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.

        45 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.

        46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

        47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

        48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.” Luke 11

        “51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. 52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:” Stephen in Acts 7

        “16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry. 17 Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.” Acts 17 [emphasis mine]

But as i kept reading, i suddenly noticed how your article is oozing at every paragraph with preconceptions and generic bible banther. You did not create this article to educate about Levi or Baphomet – instead you turned it into a blunt instrument to damn everyone who isn’t in accord with your beliefs. I was disappointed ofcourse and proceeded to read the comments to see what others thought about it. I’m telling you my good man, you would have made a fine inquisitor when the job was still in demand.

    You, friend, are a parrot. You do nothing but quote scriptures. You have no opinion of your own experience. I think you must have had some kind of traumatic experince in the past that you couldn’t get past by yourself. I’m happy that you have found your peace, in one way or another but i am concerned that you have lost your individuality and your power to reason. I’m sad that you need a constant father-figure in your life to make you feel better. It shows that you have not matured spiritualy and that you have stopped seeking the truth because you have been led to belive it could ever be captured in a book. The fallacy of saying that the bible is the actual word of a supernatural being seems to not bother you at all. Your claim that the bible has any historic or scientific merit is absolute b*%#!~^t. I will never belive that i am the incestuous offspring of a man and a woman who ate some apple because a snake told them it was a good idea. When will you bible-parrots ever learn that the truth is something you have to search for yourself, with utter dedication and complete sacrifice. It will turn you into an outcast, a weirdo and a dissident. That is what Jesus was. He had found his own truth and because he loved us so much he didn’t care about what would happen to him if he started preaching it. He wasn’t the son of a bearded man in the sky, i’m afraid. He was a man like you an me who saw his own light and knew that we all had a light inside of us, and wanted us to seek at aswell. Not HIS light, our own. The rest you learn about him are mythological exagerations that the romans and subsequently catholics used to create fear. Because evil knows – fear is a much better incentive than love. That’s why you keep rambling about hell and lakes of fire – your own fears.

    I also made a mental note at some point to laugh at you for slandering Taoism. Are you serious? You will shamelessly discredit any philosophy and religion that isn’t your own? Usualy bible-bashers such as yourself pick one thing to slander and lie about (sex before marriage, pro-life, homosexuality, etc). You on the other hand choose to throw poo at every direction. Not so wise and it makes you look like a narccisist and a sociopath, cause only those types of personality claim that they’re view is right and EVERYONE else is wrong.

    In conclusion, i urge you to begin a process of introspection and to start asking questions again about the things you hold to be rock-solid truth. Look up meditation, yoga, other practices that differ from your own and apply them whole-heartedly. Then, and only then, will you know anything about them and about yourself. Even if you find them untrue, it will be so of your own experience, not because you read in some books that x is good and y is bad. And even then, it will not mean that your truth would EVER be someone else’s. Please understand how utterly unique each of us are. Please understand that you are NOT inherently born evil because someone supposedly ate a fruit. Do not mock the beauty of life with fear-mongering of demons and b@%^*!$t. Thank you and namaste.

What’s more is that you should really work on your spelling skills. You all but butchered the actual account in the Bible of Adam & Eve. Then you claim the Romans thought up myths surrounding Jesus when historical records from the 1st century prove he did the things recorded in the Bible. The historical records from that era also prove that Jesus & his apostles were persecuted and killed by the Roman government. They were looking to exterminate Christianity, not prop it up to make people fear as you imply.

      You contradict yourself like so many other critics of Christianity. You assume we should be responsible for finding our own truth & not be concerned with what others think about it, but if that were true then you are not in the position to criticize me either for my beliefs. If we’re not supposed to discredit other philosophies or religions, then why discredit mine & tout your own as better than mine in your comment. Contradictions, contradictions. Taoism is like all other religions–it promotes itself as the truth in opposition to all others.

  42. Hey Harry.

    Let me just say I agree wholeheartedly with this article. I’m aware of the occult/secret societies/global eltists that run this world. I mean just looking at the entertainment portion of the world, you’d be a fool to not see a pattern in each example.

    I’ve been a believer all of my life and I will never denounce or reject God and his son Jesus Christ. Lately, I’ve been slightly struggling with my faith. I guess you can call this a help request? I don’t know. I just deem you a credible source for information because we have similar ideological backgrounds. (I too know about how the Catholics/Freemasons/Rosicrucians/Skull&Bones/Luciferians all intertwine in some sort of fashion)

    Ok. So here it goes. (Sorry for the length but I feel as if you should know the details of my issue in order for an accurate response)

    One day I stumbled on google trying to find what I should call “God”. After all, the Hebrews/Greeks didn’t refer to “God” as God. That’s an anglosaxon word for a deity. I’m confused as to why there are so many names for him. For example, Yahweh is one of his names. Yahweh was associated with wind. However, it tells us in Genesis that “God” or the Elohim created the heavens and Earth. This is a plural hebrew word for “authority” or “power”. Whereas, Yahweh is a singular name used when he parted the red Sea to help the Israelites flee the Egyptians. (source: http://ancientskyscraper.com/330712.html )

    The main thing which kind of shook me up is the fact that “God” (i use quotations not to denote but to ask the question what’s his true name?) told Abraham that he is in fact “El”. The canaanites (Abraham’s region) worshiped tons of deities. The fact that “God” said he was “el” kind of strikes confusion within me. He used the term “el” as if he was reinstating Abraham’s familiarity within the popularized pantheon in order to catch his attention.

    Also, when the Israelites returned to their pagan ways, Aaron crafted a golden bull to satisfy the jews’ faith. How ironic, that this deity “El” (Which God revealed himself to Abraham) is known as a bull God. This of course made Moses irate. Also, Egypt had a large pantheon of Gods and bull worship was quite common. As a matter of fact, there is a temple dedicated to Jehovah, or YHWH as early as the 14th Century B.C. (source: http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2010328 )

    I know, as a believer, I shouldn’t be stumbling upon anything outside the bible, however, archaeology shows that the Ugaritic texts and tablets reveal that El or Baal (Lord) was among the pantheon of which the Lord (our God) revealed to Abraham.

    Why is it that “God” has so many names? Elohim, Jehovah, El, Yahweh, Adonai, Baal, El Shaddai (btw that was a common name even among pre-islamic Arab lands)… Are these his names or are they in fact adjectives to describe him?

    The ugaritic texts really threw me off. Not completely off. I will always serve and hold Jehovah (I guess thats his name? Or is it Yahweh? Or should i refer to him as the Elohim?) as the most High with his son Yeshua (or Jesus) as my savior. But I need some clarity on this issue so my faith can be renewed…. It’s just hard to stay focused when “God” says there shall be no Gods before me, when in fact, he has so many names from which all have stemmed from a pantheon of the ancient canaanite religion….

    Help me brother! Thanks!

    1. Toby,

      Your confusion about who God is and what his names are stems from false premises that you assume to be true. And I’m not saying that to slam you. Here are the false premises that I’m talking about:

      ♦ Google is where you can find what to call “God.”

      ♦ Yahweh was associated with wind.

      ♦ God was relating to the pantheon to catch Abraham’s attention.

      ♦ Aaron made a golden calf called “El”, which relates to God, to satisfy the Jews’ faith.

      ♦ God revealed himself as El or Baal, which relates to the pantheon.

      ♦ God’s many names are confusing.

      ♦ Baal is one of God’s names.

      ♦ The Ugaritic texts help us understand God.

      ♦ All God’s names stem from the Canaanite pantheon.

      None of these assumptions you’ve made are true. Just because someone writes something with a whole bunch of references that proclaims the above statements over and over as being true doesn’t mean they are true. Until you throw out all of these premises you’ve made and accepted as true, they will continue to cause you to be confused. The links you consulted that you list in your comment are from the Watchtower Society, or Jehovah’s Witnesses, and they have nothing to do with the real Bible or the real God of the Bible.

      The names Jehovah & Yahweh are used synonymously and are just different spellings for the same name. The Christian Bible (not the New World Translation of the JWs or the Catholic Bible) is where you find out how to understand God and his names. God introduced himself to Abraham as God Almighty (El Shaddai) and told him to come out from among his people & their gods. So he really wasn’t identifying with any pantheon. He was making the exclusive claim that he is the only true god and the only one who should be worshiped.

      God also had nothing to do with Baal worship. Baal was a totally different god for a totally different religion. Many who attack the Bible try to tie the two together to try to diminish God’s importance, but they’re lying and those lies are satanically inspired. God repeatedly told his people to stop worshiping Baal. God also had nothing to do with any Egyptian bull gods. He told the Israelites to forsake the Egyptian gods when he brought them out of Egypt. But throughout Israel’s history they turned their backs on the one true God & embraced the idol gods of neighboring nations, which led to God punishing them with exile. Then some archaeologists and others came along to discover the ancient pagan idols and altars that ancient Israel worshiped, then inserted their own assumptions about God based on what Israel did and formed conclusions based on syllogisms, which went something like this– Jews worshiped the God of the Bible and worshiped Baal, Molech, and other gods. Therefore, Jehovah = Baal = Molech = other gods. Therefore, all religions can be traced back to the same religion.

      Those assumptions are nothing but lies. There are two religious systems in the world– the heathen religions inspired by Satan and the worship of Jehovah based on a relationship with Jesus Christ through faith. The false religions inspired by Satan always make the claim they are the same as Jehovah-inspired religion because Satan wants to be worshiped and wants to overthrow what glorifies Jehovah. When you consider that Jehovah is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient, then no matter how many names we call him, they could never fully express the complexity and vastness of who he is in all his divinity. So instead of being preoccupied with how many names he has, read the Bible to find out which names he wants to be called no matter how many they are. He answers to all of the names which are correct.

  43. Btw, I’m not here to stir a debate up or challenge you on your biblical/scientific/archaeological knowledge. I posted this to help me break this weight of confusion on my faith so I can serve God with my all. I feel like I’m serving him out of fear alone, you know? I want to serve him with love along with fear. The fact one of his commandments commands us not to be polytheistic strikes me because he has a multitude of names himself. Most of which stemmed from Ugaritic texts and ancient pantheistic religions. That kind of triggers a “How can I take your word seriously” when you are among this pantheon? The ugaritic texts are extremely ancient. Way before Abraham and Job came onto the scene.

    Half of me is like “I wish I would have never found this” and the other half is like “You should take this into consideration because the truth shall have no filters”

      Worship of Jehovah pre-dates the Ugaritic texts. Adam & his descendants kept a written account of things that happened in the early years of man’s existence on Earth. Then Moses took the writings and compiled them into Genesis (Genesis 5:1). Genesis 4:26 says men began to call on the Lord about the time of the birth of Enos, which was approximately in the 3800s BC. This was way before the pagan religions and shows Jehovah had nothing to do with them.

    1. Crow, you’re deceived on both counts. Jesus said he came to fulfill the law and not destroy it. The god you love isn’t God because the only way to God is through Jesus. If you loved God you would follow Christ and therefore would be a Christian. You lie.

  46. Assuming the version of the bible we have today is newer than believed could this Levi be the Levi mentioned in the book of Leviticus that sets gods rule and make the laws? If you read Leviticus you will find lots of satanic paganism and the alter to which sacrifice is given is described as having horns. Leviticus is a vile book and I don’t believe it came from any savior. Also Christ is explained as coming like a thief in the night. Moloch the owl is a night hunter. Christ is the way? I think Christ is baph’s alter ego savior by day and destroyer by night just like satanist today, and alchemy has more to do with evil people making a public persona to trickster humans into submission. In film when a scene is added to make the character sympathetic it is called a rubber ducky scene. After reading the evil old testament I’d have to say the new testament is the biggest rubber ducky scene in history. Only a fool can not see that the new testament is just a reverse of the old. The devils you speak of all came from religions about sons born from immaculate conception way, way, way before Christ. Where does the bible say satan knows God’s plan? Why would god then model his religion off of satanism?

    1. Anti-leviticus,

      Right off the bat you reveal that you don’t know your history. The Old Testament (OT) is based on manuscripts that are way before Eliphas Levi was even born. Haven’t you heard of the Dead Sea Scrolls?

      [If you read Leviticus you will find lots of satanic paganism and the alter to which sacrifice is given is described as having horns.]

      The reason why you try to lump together worship of Jehovah, the one true and living God, with paganism is that you lack spiritual discernment that can only come by knowing Jesus Christ. “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” [1 Corinthians 2:14] Horns on the altar are symbolic of God’s power. The altar had four horns. It was symbolic of Jesus Christ, his sacrifice for your sins and everyone else’s sins, and the gospel message for the whole world. The four horns symbolize the whole world (North, South, East, West) and God is King of all the earth (Psalm 47:7).

      [Leviticus is a vile book and I don’t believe it came from any savior]

      That’s your choice made by your God-given free will. But you’ve made your decision based on lies. Here’s what Leviticus says:

      3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. …

      6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the Lord. …

      20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her.

      21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.

      22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

      23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

      24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

      25 And the land is defiled… Leviticus 18

      So the OT speaks against pagan nations like Egypt and their corrupt pagan practices. It speaks against incest, adultery, human sacrifices, homosexuality, bestiality, and more because the nations who God sent Israel to overthrow were guilty of all of these evils. So if you hate Leviticus and the OT, then by default you are saying you embrace one or all of the sins it speaks against. Your attacks against it are just a cover for your being uncomfortable with the Bible speaking out against the sins that you’ve given yourself over to. You’re projecting.

      [Christ is explained as coming like a thief in the night. Moloch the owl is a night hunter.]

      Christ, who is God, spoke against Moloch in one of the verses I quoted above, so your attempt to equate them has no merit. Christ will come when people least expect it, much like a thief does in the night. But when Christ comes, it will be for good, not evil. Those who don’t like him, such as yourself, will see this good as evil because you are caught up in sin. If you refuse to believe in Christ, you will die in your sins and reap all the evil you’ve sown by paying for your own sins in hell. That’s real talk.

      [I think Christ is baph’s alter ego savior by day and destroyer by night just like satanist today]

      Your opinion is not based on facts. Jesus Christ never contradicted himself. Your statement is much like the Pharisees who said Jesus cast out devils by the power of the devil, to which Jesus responded, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?” (Matthew 12:25-26). If Jesus were divided as you claim, then his kingdom would not still be around–there would be no Christians and no Bible.

      [Only a fool can not see that the new testament is just a reverse of the old.]

      Again, you have no proof but are just stating your wishful thinking because you don’t like the fact that the Bible speaks against the sins you enjoy, so you have to come up with anything in your mind to try to tear it down. You’re not doing a good job of it. Here’s a comparison between what the OT says and what the NT says:

      OT: Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it… Deuteronomy 4:2
      NT: If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Revelation 22:18-19

      OT: The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord… Isaiah 61:1-2
      NT: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4:18-19

      OT: I believed, therefore have I spoken… Psalm 116:10
      NT: We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak… 2 Corinthians 4:13

      OT: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…his name shall be called…The mighty God, The everlasting Father… Isaiah 9:6
      NT: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23
      NT: Jesus saith unto him…he that hath seen me hath seen the Father… John 14:9

      OT: Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me… Isaiah 29:13
      NT: He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Mark 7:6

      OT: Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. Deuteronomy 25:4
      NT: For it is written in the law of Moses, thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. 1 Corinthians 9:9

      It seems to me that only a fool could not see the OT and NT say the same thing, not the reverse.

      [The devils you speak of all came from religions about sons born from immaculate conception way, way, way before Christ.]

      This myth has been debunked. So people like you only repeat it because you’ve never read the ancient pagan texts and are looking for any excuse to reject the Bible for telling you your sins are wrong and you’re on your way to hell if you don’t repent.
       

       
       

       
      [Where does the bible say satan knows God’s plan?]

      Satan knows the Bible and God’s prophecies. Genesis prophesied about a coming Messiah, Satan just didn’t know the exact time. Satan inspired Herod the Great to kill the baby boys in Bethlehem because Satan knew God’s plan. He tempted Jesus in the wilderness because he knew God’s plan, but he’s not aware of all the details.

      [Why would god then model his religion off of satanism?]

      He doesn’t. That’s just your assumption based on lies and it’s a faulty assumption as I’ve shown throughout my response to you. You have no legitimate basis to reject the Bible or Jesus. You need to repent of your sins and believe in Jesus, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life,” (John 3:16).

      Essentially, Laura, you are being hypocritical here. You hate it when Christians disregard the points of view of others, but somehow, someway, it’s perfectly fine for you to disregard the Christian point of view since it doesn’t agree with your own view. Your statement screams hypocrisy. You say Christians are close-minded as you yourself are shown to be close-minded. If you knew all religions well enough, you would know that all of them claim to be the right one. The only way one can determine which one is really the right one is by examining the facts, which you refuse to do because you are close-minded. Once a person has discovered the truth about something, it’s perfectly fine to close one’s mind, but in cases such as yours where you have not discovered the truth, being close-minded will be your downfall. For example, when one finds out that 2 hydrogen atoms combined with one oxygen atom are what makes water, one does not have to consider any other chemical combination of atoms for making water.

      [If you have so many comments to defend yourself against people who are unimpressed by it, then it only proves the lack of motivation on your part, to provide something well thought out, unbiased, and embellished with facts.]

      Actually, it just shows that people are quite content with buying into the lies that oppose Christianity’s truth. They love their sin instead of the Savior. It’s amusing that you would tell me to think things through and be unbiased and consider facts when you have failed to do any of the these three things you wish I would do. You have only presented your opinion with no facts and the opinions you do submit are hypocritical and contradictory. When you show yourself to be contradictory as you have here, do you realize what that means, Laura? It means you have revealed that you are not someone whose opinion can be trusted. I presented my case with statements made by Eliphas Levi himself, who worshiped Baphomet and whose painting of the character is one of the most popular depictions of Baphomet. Yet you have presented no facts whatsoever. So who is really the one who submitted statements embellished with facts? Hint: it isn’t you.

Do not believe what this article says, do your own research and do not let your judgement clouded by stupid doctrines and beliefs, especially not the belief in the Christian god, who is completely false.

All you’ve done, like the negative commenters who preceded you, is embraced the liars who believe as you do in your hatred of Christianity because the Bible confronts you about the sins you love. And as I’ve stated plenty of times before, if the Bible were a construction of men, it would not be so accurate in the science it talks about centuries before the scientific truths were discovered. If it were just a construction of man, it would not be so accurate in its prophecies being fulfilled. Nor would it record such accurate eyewitness accounts which historical documents have verified.

      And as far as Jesus is concerned, Josephus was not the only ancient secular historical source that speaks of him. So you’ve shown yourself to be someone who is not a student of history. If you were familiar with history, you would know Jesus of Nazareth’s existence is verified by these 1st & 2nd century sources:

  50. ATROCIOUS DRIVEL!!! The author of this article has so little understanding of what he speaks of. Never mind that he uses the briefest, context-less quotations to justify his own, COMPLETELY distorted, subjective interpretation of what he (wants to) believe the Baphomet symbol represents. The painful irony is how he lumps together various differing, even contradictory, uses, understandings, and definitions of what the symbol represents simply so he can (inaccurately) lump together all the so-called false-religions; while conveniently sidestepping the unity that the Baphomet symbol has with Christian doctrine.

    There’s so many ins here that it is hard to pick just one; so I’ll go for the most potent: the pentagram, as depicted in the Baphomet image drawn by Levi, represents the union of man and God. Not a “false god”, as you put it, but the exact same God that you believe in: YHWH/JHVH (which is often, incorrectly pronounced as “Jehovah”). If you want that expounded on, I suggest you read more of Levi’s writings and you’ll come across his drawing of the Tetragrammaton Pentagram, which combines the unspeakable name of that who you refer to as “God” (and by doing so, you accept the pagan concept and vocabulary for a deity; which I personally think is a very limiting and simplistic confinement of the greatness of that wonderful Divine Spirit) with astrological and Jewish/Kabbalah signs to represent the perfection of mankind/the material (it is not a talisman for “communicating with devils”, as the author of this article randomly infers, but a symbol meant to bring one closer to the divine and expel anything opposed to the divine light). In short, the Pentagram, so long as one point is ascended (and this makes a HUGE difference) represents exactly what Jesus Christ is: the perfect equilibrium where the Divine Spirit (“God”, if you prefer) imbues and perfects the material. The Baphomet symbol, as designed by Levi, reinforces the exact same thing.

    Now, there is obvious confusion on the part of the author here regarding the existence of multiple, even contradictory Baphomets. There are essentially 3 different, significant Baphomets. There is the Baphomet of the Knights Templars, which is believed to be tied the prophet Mohamed – it is believed that the Muslims chanting Mohamed name was heard and interpreted, phonetically, as Baphomet. There is the Baphomet image designed by Levi, which is featured at the top of the page and I shall explain better in a moment. Then, there is the Baphomet of the Satanists, which completely inverts the meaning and values that Levi was expressing with his drawing.

    There are two major differences between the Satanic inversion/perversion of Levi’s Baphomet symbol. The first being that the Satanist’s definitive image of Baphomet consists of simply the goat’s head within an inverted pentagram (2 points up, one point down). This is to signify that the material (represented by both the goat’s head and the two points of the pentagram) are placed in the position of glorification over the spiritual (which is represented by the single, 5th point of the pentagram). All other images from Levi’s Baphomet are absent – including, most significantly – the flaming torch above/behind the goat’s head. This is a crucial element. You see Satanism as a religion is really just a kitschy form of atheism (that’s right, for all the fear and power most Christians invest Satanism with, it doesn’t even have a serious agenda other than to essentially ‘troll’ your belief system). It exalts the materialistic and aims to undermine the concept of spirit. Now, in Levi’s drawing of Baphomet, the flaming torch – extending from the point over the right-side-up pentagram – represents the divine spark or spiritual emanating from within the goat’s head; which represents the bestial, material element of mankind and our universe. To quote directly from Levi (a passage that seems to have conspicuously withheld by the author of this article ): “The ugly beast’s head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes.”

    So, you see, the goat head – which of course immediately conjures images of the devil for anyone raised in a Christine (Catholic to be more specific, since all of our modern images and symbols of Christ, Satan and religious events emanate from Catholic, religious art) culture where a goat-like visage has become identified with the Devil [a relatively modern development in the grand scheme of things] – is meant to depict the material; the flesh. It is that base point where each of us begins and strives to ascend out of (this Christian AND Alchemical journey sees each of us evolve from a spiritually leaden state into a vibrant, golden one). The Satanists/Atheists and you so-called Christians all place the emphasis on the goat’s head and fail to see the Divine spirit/God that resides beneath it. The whole point of Levi imbuing his drawing with such a grotesque front piece is so that the truly sophisticated, spiritually enlightened viewer would be rewarded for their knowledge (Sophia) and spiritual awareness and see past the material, symbolic aspects of the sign to the deep spiritual truth underneath: Christ’s truth. All others, whom he deemed the profane (and which describes anyone on this site who goes in for the author of this page’s complete hogwash), would fail to understand and turn away in revulsion at the superficial aspects on display.

    You see, Levi, unlike many here, understood the purpose of symbols. They are intended to guide from the physical into the spiritual. They are means of expressing wondrous spiritual concepts that are otherwise so great and wondrous that they are beyond expression and tangibility (like referring to the Great Divine Spirit as “God” simply so we can find a name to describe it). The problem with many people – those profane, ignorant fools who buy into the drivel on this site – is that they imbue too much value into the signs themselves; rarely understanding what they truly represent. The author of this page was accurate in understanding the meaning behind the Hermetic rod with intertwined serpents; however, he shoots himself in the foot by trying to make into a devil’s tool with its eerie occult/pagan roots. I have news for you, Harry, unless you’re not too familiar with your Bible you’ll recall that the rod of Hermes pops up and is used by Moses – under the direction of God, no less – to protect the people of God from deadly snakes. So, the followers of Hermes were either influenced by the same God as the Israelites or He just really like their symbol and wanted the Jewish tribes to use it too. Either way, you’re argument is starting to look pretty flimsy. This wouldn’t be the first time that a Christian was ignorant of the pagan influence on Christianity, still exemplified in practice today.

    Let’s take the Jesus fish, better known as the vesica pisces, which is a pagan symbol representing the goddess’s vagina; from which all life was believed to flow. So, whoever designed this symbol was either playing a wicked prank or they were exemplifying the very concepts that Levi’s Baphomet represent and you seem to find so troubling. By coupling a distinctly feminine symbol with the masculine name of Jesus, we see the divine joining of the feminine and masculine traits of all creation, the Alchemical Wedding; Spiritual equilibrium. You see, for how often you like to pretend God is a man, the Divine Spirit is just what I refer to it as – Spirit – and therefore outside and beyond of any physical, biological, gender-defining signifier. This is why Levi valued androgyny – because it represents equilibrium between the masculine and feminine aspects of creation and spirit; since both man and woman emanate from what we label God. Androgyny, then, is a better signifier to the spirit/God since these are traits that were broken apart and separated to form the material order in which we now exist. Androgyny represents the joining back together of these elements. There’s absolutely nothing sinister about that. Perhaps, the implications of sexual couplings bother you? I don’t see why, since sex is the only means by which the human race came about and will continue to do so (it’s worth noting that the author of this article randomly asserts that Levi specifically endorsed sex outside of marriage, despite there being no quotations from Levi’s writings to validate this clam; more “creative” inferring on the author’s part, I assert). Anyways, if the Bible is to be interpreted as a historical text, we must realize that all of humankind is descended from the incestuous coupling of one family; I don’t know why we don’t hear many diatribes against the book of Genesis based on this evidence.

    Hopefully I brought some enlightenment to this pool of shadowed thought and commandment breaking lies. If anyone wants to challenge any of what I have said, you are welcome. However, be warned that I have the luxury of understanding what I speak of and have researched it thoroughly. I suggest you do the same before challenging my argument, otherwise you’ll find yourself eviscerated and humiliated by Divine, objective truth. May Sophia find you all!

    1. TommyB,

      I hope if you leave a comment in the future, that it won’t be as long-winded. If not, I’ll have to shorten it. Anyone who knows the true God of the Bible knows that what’s really drivel is your comment. You’re an occultist kabbalist who is defending one of the most influential kabbalists of all time–Eliphas Levi. That alone tells those of us who love the truth that you have spoken nothing but lies. I provided specific sources that people can consult for themselves at a public library or online to verify what I’ve said, yet you just want us to take your misguided word and want us to assume your lies are the truth just because you were the one who said it. That just doesn’t fly.

      Leave it to an occultist such as yourself to call light darkness and darkness light; to call bitter sweet and sweet bitter; and to claim good is evil and evil is good (Isaiah 5:20). It’s exactly what your spiritual father, Satan, does all the time. Like father, like son in your case.

      Your attempt to claim there are 3 different Baphomets is a feeble one at best. All 3 versions are rooted in Luciferian traditions, whether Knights Templar, Eliphas Levi, or the Satanists. You claim Eliphas Levi’s version was different, but Eliphas Levi was a satanist and a freemason in the Knights Templar order. Here’s what he said in his book “Mysteries of Magic” on p. 428, “What is more absurd and more impious than to attribute the name of Lucifer to the devil, that is, to personified evil. The intellectual Lucifer is the spirit of intelligence and love; it is the paraclete, it is the Holy Spirit, while the physical Lucifer is the great agent of universal magnetism.” Kabbalists, such as yourself, New Agers, Freemasons, Satanists, and witches all hold Eliphas Levi in high esteem and his words reveal who all of you are really serving. You’re a liar and the truth is not in you. Eliphas Levi even knew that Lucifer and his devils were actual persons because he actively participated in seances and transcendental meditation to speak to them. So by defending him and his take on Baphomet, you are promoting his devilish form of worship and are partaker in the same sins he participated in.

      Furthermore, you even contradict yourself regarding the Bible and the people mentioned in it. On the one hand you want Christians to embrace the falsehood that they have the same spiritual roots as pagans, Satanists, etc. that you falsely believe are reflected in the Bible through Moses and Christ, then you make the claim that the Bible should be dismissed based on the book of Genesis and the intermarrying among family members that occurred. You use the Bible as proof that your claims are true, then tell us the Bible should not be accepted as true, which is essentially telling us that we should dismiss most of what you said since you based it on the Bible. You have blatantly broken the law of noncontradiction since the Bible cannot be true and untrue at the same time. You inadvertently admit by your own admission your arguments are lies since you say the Bible isn’t true.

      Bottom line, you need Jesus Christ as your Lord and not the fake Christ you talk about in your comment. It’s time for you to ditch the falsehoods of Baphomet and embrace the truth that you are a sinner in need of the only salvation that comes only through Jesus of Nazareth.

Well, occult simply means “hidden”; as in reference to the spiritual world which is invisible to the physical. Kabbalah is a complex school of thought that has been tied very closely to Judaism and Christianity. So, none of that is remotely devil-worship-y.

        As for trying to get people to take only my “misguided word”, I made it quite clear that I’m using the same sources that you are; the crucial difference is that I understand what I’m talking about. I don’t know what sources you are employing when irresponsibly claiming that Levi is (and thereby implying that I too am) a Satanist. I encourage anyone reading this to actually read Levi’s text, so that they can see that there is not a single instance of support for the devil.

        You use his quotations about the symbolic understanding of Lucifer, like you have done with all other quotations from Levi, without context. In Levi’s writings, Lucifer is distinct from Satan; as he also is in the Bile. Lucifer is a name given by God, meaning “light-bearer”.

        Lucifer, as it says in the Bible, was the most loved and wonderful angel. He becomes corrupted and then perverted into Satan; Lucifer dies as a result of corruption. Now, I don’t take this story literally signifying an external devil, but simply as a myth that illustrates the true, spiritual degradation that all human spirit endures when submerged into the material order.

        To be clear, I don’t view the Bible as a literally true, historical document. I view it as an enlightened, holy text that uses mythological symbols to express universal spiritual truths. I don’t care what your opinion on that is, but I want to make clear what my position is on the Bible, since that was the bulk of your “counter-argument” in the absence of any evidence to support your groundless claims.

        Again, I encourage anyone reading this to actually read the texts by Levi so that they can understand that Harry Gaylord is the only one trying to deceive people here. He literally lies to backup his claims in the absence of any evidence (that he understands, at least) to back them up. Read what Levi said about Baphomet and the pentagram and then look at what the Satanists say about it. You will find, as I have said and Harry has denied, that they are in fact completely contradictory. I have no agenda other than speaking the truth: God’s truth.

One example is that it promotes observing the sun, moon, and stars to map out decisions for one’s life. This practice of astrology is known as observing times or divination and is often done by consulting mediums. God’s word condemns these practices:

        There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord… Deuteronomy 18:10-12

        The Kabbalah claims to follow the books of Moses. If that’s the case, why are they in such blatant violation of them by observing times through astrology?

        Another violation of God’s word that they commit is their practice of following the Sefer Yetsira, the Book of Formation that Kabbalists claim Abraham wrote. This is not part of the inspired, accepted canon of genuine Jewish law. God gave commandments throughout his word not to add to it or take away from it when his word says:

        Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. Deuteronomy 4:2

        Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. Proverbs 30:5-6

        So once again the Kabbalah is shown to be lies because they have violated God’s word by following a book that adds to God’s word in that it falsely claims to be divine. So, TommyB, the more you make your false claims, the more you are shown to be a liar and deceiver.

    Well, first off you keep referring to that which I prefer to describe as YHWH or simply the Divine Spirit as “God”. Now that’s a word that comes from the Hebrew word Elohim; a generic word that denotes any deity. Therefore it can refer to Baal, Moloch or any other pagan god as easily as that which you constantly misname as “Jehovah”. So, even the name you choose to call the spirit by is “steeped in paganism”… you’ve…avoided addressing the pagan roots of the “Jesus fish”/vesica piscis or that “God” clearly instructs – in Numbers 21:8-9 – Moses to build the rod of the Greek god Asclepius (I mistakenly confused it with the Rod of Hermes, earlier. You see, I point out my mistakes in the favor of greater truth. …). So the “God” of the Bible seems to have some purpose for pagan iconography.

    [Lucifer isn’t dead. Lucifer became Satan… ]

    I find it ironic that we’re going to argue the minutia of a word – “Lucifer” – that only appears once in the Bible… Now, to make my point perfectly clear, the “shining one” of the Bible is regard as “God’s” pinnacle of creation before he falls and is transformed into what is described as the “prince of darkness”. …In the spiritual tradition of Levi, the story of the “shining one’s” descent into darkness is seen, not as a literal history, but as a symbolic parable about the fall of the Divine Light… The Bible then, from the fall of man, to the fall of “Lucifer”, to the descent of “God” into the physical realm (Christ) is seen as a work in line with the alchemical spiritual journey…which encompasses the journey back toward the Divine Light… Now, if you need more evidence that Levi viewed the symbolic “Lucifer” as separate and distinct from the the devil, I’ll just let him speak for himself:

    “What is more absurd and more impious than to attribute the name of Lucifer to the devil, that is, to personified evil,  The intellectual Lucifer is the spirit of intelligence and love; it is the Paraclete, it is the Holy Spirit, while the physical Lucifer is the great agent of universal magnetism. To personify evil and exalt it into an intelligence which is the rival of God, into a being which can understand but love no more – this is a monstrous fiction. To believe that God permits this evil intelligence to deceive and destroy his feeble creatures is to make God more wicked than the devil. By depriving the devil of the possibility of love and repentance, God forces him to do evil. Moreover a spirit of error and falsehood can only be a folly which thinks, nor does it deserve indeed the name of spirit. The devil is God’s antithesis, and if we define God as He who is we must define His opposite as he who is not.” Eliphas Levi, The Mysteries of Magic.

    [Kabbalah is a Luciferian religion of gnosticism. It is devilish in many ways. One example is that it promotes observing the sun, moon, and stars to map out decisions for one’s life..]

    And the Bible has never employed astrological patterns to denote meaning?

    “Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” (Matthew 2:2)

    “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. [There is] no speech nor language, [where] their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, Which [is] as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, [and] rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. His going forth [is] from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.” (Psalms 19:1-6)

    “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Luke 21:25-26)

    [ Another violation of God’s word that they commit is their practice of following the Sefer Yetsira, the Book of Formation that Kabbalists claim Abraham wrote. This is not part of the inspired, accepted canon of genuine Jewish law. ]

    You are, again, distorting facts and information to suit your argument. It is true that some Kabbalists theorize that the Sefer Yetsira might have been written by Abraham, but this is a debated topic. …

    When it comes down to it, Kabalah aims to better understand the will and true word of the Divine. You materialistically deify the literal text of the physical Bible itself. I am under no such delusion. The word of “God” is that spiritual light that exists beyond and within the symbols; not the symbols themselves. That’s like claiming that the pentagram or the crucifix or a painting of Jesus is in itself an embodiment of YHWH. None of which is true. They, like the Bible, are abstracted symbols that allow us a way into the intangible spiritual realm, by making those concepts tangible to the human mind. …

    “[Baphomet] is a knowledge rising in opposition to idolatry, protesting though the very monstrosity of the idol. The Israelites were forbidden to give divine concepts the figure of a man or of any animal; thus, on the ark of the covenant and in the sanctuary, they dared sculpt only cherubs, that is, sphinxes with the bodies of bulls and the heads of men, eagles or lions. These mixed figures reproduced neither the complete form of any man, nor that of any animal. These hybrid creations of impossible animals gave to understand that the image was not an idol or reproduction of a living thing, but rather a character or representation of something having its existence in thought. Baphomet is not worshipped; it is God who is worshipped, this faceless God behind this formless form, this image which resembles no created being. Baphomet is not a God; He is the sign of initiation.” Levi, Eliphas. The Book of Splendours, page 118.

      Not when it specifically names the god that it’s referring to. You’re saying Baal=Moloch=Jehovah and that’s not the case at all. Worshiping Baal is called evil by Jehovah. If all these gods were the same, then they would all agree and not contradict each other as in the following cases:

      And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD [Jehovah], and served Baalim: And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger. And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth. And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies. [Judges 2:11-14]

      And the king [Josiah] commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD [Jehovah] all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove [Asherah], and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron 2 Kings 23:4

      And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. Jeremiah 32:35

      Worshiping Baal and Molech was evil and an abomination in Jehovah’s eyes. So your attempts to equalize them, just like your attempt to say using “Jehovah” is wrong, are simply attempts from someone who is deceived to cause confusion. And the author of confusion is none other than your spiritual father, Satan. So once again, like father, like son.

      [ you’ve…avoided addressing the pagan roots of the “Jesus fish”/vesica piscis]

      [“God” clearly instructs – in Numbers 21:8-9 – Moses to build the rod of the Greek god Asclepius]

      TommyB, brush up on your history. First, all pagan traditions have been shown to add to or subtract from their scriptures, teachings, myths, etc. Greek mythology was no different (see Martin P. Nilsson’s The Mycenaean Origin of Greek Mythology, available free online). The first mention of Asclepius is by Greek poet Hesiod in 700 BC. Moses and his writings date back to the 1400s BC. And the two accounts are very different from each other. In Moses’ account, many poisonous serpents were slithering through the Israelite camp biting people, who subsequently died. Moses made a brass serpent that those who were bitten had to look at to be healed. Asclepius had a live serpent crawl up his staff that gave him an herb to heal. But I would say from 1400 BC to 700 BC is plenty of time for Greeks to plagiarize or incorporate Hebrew accounts into their own with some changes to make their account look legit.

      [The Bible then, from the fall of man, to the fall of “Lucifer”, to the descent of “God” into the physical realm (Christ) is seen as a work in line with the alchemical spiritual journey]

      So basically you, like other pagan traditions, are implying Jesus was just one representation of many Christs like Buddha or Vishnu and that we all are born with the Christ-conscious ability in us that we have to awaken within us by our own efforts. We must save ourselves (become divine) with the use of magick (alchemy). That’s not what the Bible teaches. The Bible says, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: It is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast,” (Ephesians 2:8-9). Since the Bible is true, that makes you a liar for contradicting it.

      [And the Bible has never employed astrological patterns to denote meaning?]

      The Bible never condones astrology. Astrology is the use of heavenly bodies to tell fortunes about one’s future and to make decisions for selfish gain, human exaltation, or worship of an idol based on how heavenly bodies are aligned. That’s the Bible’s definition based on the context of “divination” and “observer of times.” The scriptures you listed don’t do that. God revealed to the Magi that they should forsake pagan idolatry and used the star to direct them to the literal God in the flesh, the Lord Jesus Christ. And when they found the toddler Jesus, they bowed down and worshiped him as God. Psalm 19:1-6 is simply acknowledging the awesomeness of Jehovah as exhibited through his creation. They are the physical proof and testimony of Jehovah’s literal existence and his literal power as the only one who should be worshiped. Paul explained this further in Romans 1:18-20 that God has made his existence clearly known by his physical creation in the heavens and earth and in man’s inherent knowledge that we should worship him and not a false god as you do.

      The Luke scripture you mention is simply pointing out that God will use what he created as signs of his power to judge sinful mankind. It in no way is telling man to look to heavenly bodies to find out what they should do today to exalt themselves or a false god. Your pagan, reprobate, satanically-inspired mind is just attempting to twist God’s word for your ungodly pagan ends. I, like Paul, “have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully” (2 Corinthians 4:2) as you choose to do.

      [You materialistically deify the literal text of the physical Bible itself. I am under no such delusion.]

      You are delusional by making this statement. I don’t deify the Bible, I worship the God who gave us his Bible. And he has proven his Bible can be trusted historically, scientifically, and spiritually. Many prophecies he has given have literally come true in the history of mankind, as I have shown elsewhere on this blog. He has literally healed the sick miraculously and raised the dead, as I have shared many times at this blog. So your argument that the Bible is only symbolic is mere folderol and delusional poppycock. It’s right up there with Mother Goose and Grimm’s Fairy Tales.

      And your belief along with Levi’s that the Devil is not an actual person is the same thing the Church of Satan claims. So you’re right in line with their doctrine of lying and denying his existence while you worship him in secret. Furthermore, Levi lied when he said the devil is God’s antithesis because they would have to be equals. The devil cannot be God’s equal since God created him and had the power to kick him out of heaven. Even by your own admission, Lucifer descended into darkness and you admit God did not. Someone who is strong enough not to fall is far superior to someone who has fallen into darkness even in your warped concept of a conceptual non-literal devil and God. Therefore, Levi’s statement is a false one since God would have no antithesis since no one equals him.

    “When we begin to study Kabbalah, we immediately find ourselves under the private guidance of the Creator, and then no fortune teller or magician can do anything to us, since we are on a completely different path. We move to a different level of progress. None of them can predict anything for us because we are out of the control of the collective law of nature. The Spiritual Force and nature work differently on us.” (from kabbalah.info, under the section “Fortune Tellers – Social Assistance”, by Michael Laitman, PhD).

    [So basically you, like other pagan traditions, are implying Jesus was just one representation of many Christs like Buddha or Vishnu and that we all are born with the Christ-conscious ability in us that we have to awaken within us by our own efforts.

    The Jesus of the Bible is YHWH made flesh (in the form of a man), Buddha is a man who achieved enlightenment, and Vishnu is the Supreme God of Vaishnavism (which is a part of Hinduism). Now, what I ACTUALLY believe is that Divine Spirit can be known to the Jews as YHWH and simultaneously be reinterpreted, through a completely different cultural perspective as Vishnu (and if we go along and believe that Buddha found enlightenment, then that is just another way of describing a total state of Communion with the Divine Spirit). …the Divine Spirit resides within men. So, you are inaccurately trying to demonize me by saying that I believe, “We must save ourselves (become divine) with the use of magick (alchemy)”. The “magick” you describe is the Divine Spirit inhabiting us/me/even you. I am not using some exterior sorcery… I am simply re-connecting my soul/my spirit with YHWH’s; where all spirits emanate from originally. …

    I don’t like to used the word “saved”…it implies that my relationship with the Divine is based on fear and a desire for a reward. I don’t serve the Divine for “salvation”, I strive – imperfectly, but earnestly – to serve the Spirit simply because I believe it is right… I don’t do it to escape hell or gain heaven. I don’t fear the fires of any hell…such a state of suffering exists outside of my communion with the Divine. I am with “Him” and so I live in bliss…

    Ultimately, I don’t care what you think about what I believe. I’m under no delusions of broadening your narrow mindset. My purpose, here, was to correct and refute inaccuracy of your claims regarding specific symbols and their meanings. You said the, above, Baphomet symbol was a satanic deity, I showed you quotes from the creator of the image himself stating the exact opposite. … Remember the 9th commandment Harry…

      TommyB, you are misinformed. “Jehovah” is the actual pronunciation. Maybe you’re confused because the Watchtower Society has hijacked the name. But according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th ed., 1910-1911 in vol. 15, pages 311-314, Jews had used Jehovah (Yehovah) as the name & pronunciation for God centuries before the Christian era. This is verified by the New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge of 1912 in vol. VI on page 117 and vol. XII on page 470. Even the early church has been documented as having used that name & pronunciation. The Hebrew letter “jod” before the modern era was pronounced as the English j or soft g when transliterated from the Hebrew. “Yahweh” was made the spelling & pronunciation by Jew-hating Germans when they spread the false claim that the God of the Jews was the same as the pagan Babylonian & Canaanite deity “Yaho.” German scholars in the 19th century like Genebrardus, Driver, and Delitzsch helped spread this lie worldwide to justify their anti-semitism until everyone, including Jews, adopted it. To verify this, just look at how the Hebrew words for Jerusalem and Joshua are pronounced which have the same Hebrew letter combinations at the beginning of the words.

      [My point is that there is an overlap between the Jewish/Christian tradition and the Pagan one. … I believe the symbol denotes the same inspired truth regardless of which cultural tradition it extends from.]

      Actually what it symbolizes is that the god of this world is a hack who makes a habit of taking what God does and counterfeiting it to glorify his evil. To use the word “overlap” is to say that the original brass serpent used to glorify God is equal to the pagan symbol that glorifies Lucifer/Satan/the devil. But I wouldn’t expect the evil cabal to know the difference.

      [You clearly explain…that “God” employed a star to lead the pagan Maggi to the literal Christ. …you just encapsulated the essence of what I believe…what we have here is an example of your…concept of “God” revealing “Himself” through the aid of pagan iconography.]

      No, God did not use pagan iconography to reveal himself to the Magi. They had the revelation before the star appeared just like they had a revelation after they saw & worshiped the Christ child. Firstly, God revealed himself to them somehow (probably through a Jew of the diaspora who shared Jewish scripture) to let them know that he, Jehovah, was the one true God. They forsook their paganism. Then God told them he was about to appear in human form and the sign of his coming would be a special star placed over the town where he would be found. When the star appeared, the wise men organized a caravan and a collection of gifts then began their long journey. The star came after their conversion as verification of God’s truth and their faith and was not a means to convert them as you are stating.

      [Kabbalah [is] under the private guidance of the Creator, and then no fortune teller or magician can do anything to us, since we are on a completely different path. …None of them can predict anything for us because we are out of the control of the collective law of nature.]

      The evil cabal like all other anti-Jehovah pagan traditions is glaring with contradictions and subtle wordplay. And this is an example so thanks for offering it. Eliphas Levi, whom the evil cabal holds in high regard, says this about astrology:

      “Jerome Cardan, one of the boldest students, and beyond contradiction the most skilful astrologer of his time … has left a calculation by means of which anyone can foresee the good or evil fortune attached to all years of his life. His theory was based upon his own experiences, and he assures us that the calculation never deceived him. To ascertain the fortune of a given year, he sums up the events of those which have preceded it by 4, 8, 12, 19 and 30; the number 4 is that of realization; 8 is the number of Venus or natural things; 12 belongs to the cycle of Jupiter and corresponds to successes; 19 has reference to the cycles of the Moon and of Mars; the number 30 is that of Saturn or Fatality. …Hence I conclude that, for myself and for this year, experience confirms fully the precision of Cardan’s astrological calculus, which connects furthermore with the climacteric years of ancient astrologers.” [Dogma et Rituel de la Haute Magie, pages 144-145]

      I said before, “Astrology is the use of heavenly bodies to tell fortunes about one’s future and to make decisions for selfish gain, human exaltation, or worship of an idol based on how heavenly bodies are aligned” and that’s exactly what Levi is promoting. And the quote you gave, TommyB, is just stating the fact that one can use astrology for themselves without help from fortune tellers to determine one’s own fortune and that this astrology is determining how the heavenly bodies are aligned to determine that fortune. The evil cabal has re-phrased this astrology as “The Spiritual Force and nature work[ing] differently on us,” as your quote from kabbalah.info states. Yet it’s still astrology and God (Jehovah) still hates it. So thanks for verifying what I said.

      [Now, what I ACTUALLY believe is that Divine Spirit can be known to the Jews as YHWH and simultaneously be reinterpreted, through a completely different cultural perspective as Vishnu (and if we go along and believe that Buddha found enlightenment, then that is just another way of describing a total state of Communion with the Divine Spirit). …the Divine Spirit resides within men.]

      You say these other traditions are “another way…of Communion with the Divine Spirit.” That contradicts what Jesus said. You admit Jesus of the Bible is Jehovah made flesh, meaning you believe he is Supreme. Then why don’t your beliefs match his teachings? If you see Jesus as being so important then you would take this to heart–“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me,” John 14:6. And the man Jesus esteemed as one of the greatest prophets, John the Baptist, said this–“He that believeth on the Son [Jesus] hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him,” John 3:36. Jesus is the only way to Jehovah. There isn’t another way. To say anything different than what Jesus said means you don’t really esteem him and, “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son,” 2 John 9. Since you believe in another way, you aren’t abiding in the doctrine of Christ.

      And you just contradicted yourself again by mentioning Vishnu as the Supreme God. You disagreed with me using Elohim or Jehovah as the one true God and said it was steeped in paganism, yet somehow someway it’s perfectly okay to state that the Divine Spirit can be known in a different cultural perspective as Vishnu, the Supreme God. You toss out God’s true name Jehovah, yet embrace the use of the name of a pagan idol. Hypocrite. But that doesn’t surprise me since your “divine spirit”, Vishnu, and Buddha, are all devils which is why you like them all so much but reject Jehovah.

      [I don’t like to used the word “saved”…it implies that my relationship with the Divine is based on fear and a desire for a reward.]

      So you disagree with Jesus/Jehovah of the Bible who you claim to highly esteem. You also contradict yourself again. You are of the evil cabal because you believe it will bring you the reward of obtaining the Divine Spirit you speak of and you follow it out of fear of being on the wrong path that will not lead you to the Divine Spirit, which is in reality the devil. True salvation is based on grace through faith and love. There is nothing wrong with fear or a desire for a reward in certain cases. If you work your butt off on the job, you expect the reward of a raise or bonus somewhere down the line don’t you? If you have to make your way home from a social outing or from work, are you going down a street known for carjackings and muggings? Your healthy fear of preserving your own life will tell you to do the safe thing.

Baphomet is not a God; He is the sign of initiation.” Levi, Eliphas. The Book of Splendours, page 118.]

      The rest of what Levi says in this passage is really interesting and contradictory:

      “Baphomet is not a God: he is the sign of initiation. He is also the hieroglyphic figure of the great divine Tetragrammaton. He is a hold-over from the Cherubs of the ark and the Holy of holies.

      He is the guardian of the key to the temple.

      Baphomet is analogous to the dark God of Rabbi Simeon. He is the dark side of the divine face. This is why, during initiation ceremonies, the member elect must kiss the hind-face of Baphomet or, to give him a more vulgar name, the Devil. Now, in the symbolism of the two faces, the hind-face of God is the Devil and the hind-face of the Devil is the hieroglyphic face of God.

      Why the name of Freemasons? Free from what? From the fear of God? Yes, doubtless, for when one fears God, one is looking at him from behind. The dreadful God is the black God, the Devil. The Freemasons wish to build a spiritual temple to the one God, the God of light. …They oppose the God of the Devil and the Devil of God.”

      One minute Levi is saying Baphomet is symbolic of the Tetragrammaton, which we know as “YHWH” in Hebrew and “JHVH” in English, then he says Baphomet represents the dark God and the dark side. All of this is wordplay to confuse. It’s a tactic always used by the devil and those who follow him. Levi admits that Baphomet is the devil, but also tries to disguise the obvious by attempting to bring the God of the Bible into his contradictions. And he speaks of God and the Devil as if they are equal opposites or different sides of the same coin when they’re not. Baphomet is a representation of the devil.

    1. The Catholic Christ is a false Christ even if you deny it. What’s blasphemous is the false idea that faith in Christ isn’t enough for salvation and that one has to be in the Catholic Church or baptized or take part in the Eucharist to be saved, which is a false works-based gospel that teaches Jesus is too weak to save someone by his own power.

    1. I guess it’s easy for you to make such a comment hiding behind your anonymity. I, for one, have no fear of any devil since I’m covered by the blood of Jesus and the Lord has given me power over devils, so I don’t know who you’re talking about when you say we’re afraid. Why are you so afraid that you’re hiding your identity? We Christians have the power to expose devils and cast them out, which is one reason why I wrote this post. Lucifer is a loser and one day he will be put down for all eternity, and so will his followers. Is losing your soul to follow someone who was defeated by the Lord Jesus really worth it to you? Hell is a place of never-ending torment reserved for followers of Lucifer, i.e. those who reject Jesus Christ, so you would be better off repenting.

      All Lucifer ever does is keep people enslaved to fear, anger, bitterness, resentment, and hatred which is why his followers tend to steal, kill, and destroy things. That’s hardly a peaceful, pleasant existence.

    I would say exactly the same for people who blindly believe in ANY supernatural being. I see this behaviour in Christian, Jewish and Islamic communities as well.
    The problem here is that you’re claiming a monopoly on good, and denouncing the occult and the following of Baphomet as ‘Evil’. How can you say this logically? Have you met all the followers of Baphomet? Do you know for a fact that it is ONLY because of their worship of Baphomet they do bad things? Do you understand that “evil” is a very subjective term and actually has no real spiritual connotation at all, since bad behaviour comes from social and environmental conditioning?

      [bad behaviour comes from social and environmental conditioning]

      Have you ever seen a toddler lie? No adult has to teach them to do it. They don’t do that from ‘social and environmental conditioning,’ it comes automatically from the sin nature we’re all born with. Maybe you don’t see lying as bad behavior unless it comes from others besides those you align yourself with–I don’t know. I know that’s what atheists tend to do. Not saying you are one since you haven’t said. It’s just something I’ve observed.

      [Do you know for a fact that it is ONLY because of their worship of Baphomet they do bad things?]

      What I’m saying is that because they are sinners who love sin, they follow Baphomet (i.e. Satan) so they can encourage themselves to do evil.

      [I would say exactly the same for people who blindly believe in ANY supernatural being]

      The operative word is “blindly.” In genuine Christianity (I say genuine because there are many counterfeits) no one ‘blindly’ follows God. God cures spiritual blindness, so if one truly believes, God requires them to ‘test the spirits’ to tell if what they’re being told or what they believe is in line with the good things God has said in the Bible. There are Christians who choose to be blind about certain things, but that isn’t belief in God–it’s a belief in doing what they think is right in their own eyes in spite of what God says. He’s not responsible for their blindness in such cases.

      [The problem here is that you’re claiming a monopoly on good]

      So by saying that I don’t have a monopoly on good, by default aren’t you saying you have a monopoly on good which points out my views as a ‘problem’ and wrong in comparison to YOUR views on what’s good? Don’t you see the contradiction?

      I don’t have a monopoly on good. There is one who is good, that is God. I try to conform my ways to his because of that. He established what good is long before I was even conceived.

      […denouncing the occult and the following of Baphomet as ‘Evil’. How can you say this logically?]

      Because Baphomet is Lucifer (Satan). Those who have been prominent Luciferians have done great evil in history and Lucifer is defended along with prominent Luciferians in history by those who presently embrace Baphomet. Luciferians they defend include Aleister Crowley, Annie Besant, Madam Blavatsky, Adolph Hitler, Eliphas Levi, Anton LaVey, and many others.

      [Do you understand that “evil” is a very subjective term and actually has no real spiritual connotation]

      No, I don’t because that is a wrong interpretation of evil based on what God’s word says. Now if you can make a prophecy and then have it fulfilled like the Bible does and in addition to that match the scientific and historical accuracy of what the Bible says and then based on that, provide me with a sinless, perfect Messiah who can die for my sins and rise again of his own power, then I’ll consider your take on evil.

      And in any case, if evil were really subjective as you claim, then you wouldn’t waste your time coming here to knock down my take on evil while you imply your own take on evil is superior to mine, now would you? If it were subjective, then you would accept my view of evil to be equally valid as your own. That tells me that you know evil isn’t really subjective.

  57. You’re combining too much into one concept, mixing cause and effects together, to create one singular dichotomy. You’re also reading all the interpretations way to narrowly, I actually oppose what lavey satanism represents… but you miss the entire reason to oppose it in the first place.

    The fact that it denies christ isn’t a good enough reason, faith alone has always been nonsense. Most importantly is to WALK WITH CHRIST. The most important tenants are his EXACT words, not one iota more is worth compromising his principles. Get your a** out of leviticus, and study the sermon on the mound. You think you understand it?, Read it again, and again, and again. Then when you fully comprehend his message, LIVE IT AS FULLY AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. For starters anyone who is failing those teachings should be taught, not dismissed and condemned. If they are to be condemned for failing without even trying, then that is gods judgment alone. Maybe a warning is acceptable, but only from the perspective of legitimate concern… and still if you walk another path but follow his teachings that is the most important point. Id take a world that walks with jesus, but doesn’t believe in his piety anyday over what we have now…. a world where tons of people are comforted believing in his piety, but disregard all his teachings and don’t even try to walk with him.
    They sure love leviticus though, they sure love condemnation, judgment and serving mammon.

    The reason to oppose lavey satanism is actually brutally simple, it believes in serving oneself above all others. Levey himself described his satanism as essentially Ayn Rand with occult rituals. Christ taught us to serve others as we would ourselves, NO BETTER AND NO WORSE. Rejecting the “natural” world that the pagans worshipped, as their natural world was filled with brutality. Vengeance, Greed, survival of the fittest… all concepts Christ strongly rejected, they may be “natural” human symptoms but they deserve no worship.

    My final point is simple, IF you hold oneself to his moral teachings you are not evil by definition. You may be wrong about many things, you may not even believe in him, but whether you realize it or not you walk with him. If a particular religion/philosophy/thought teaches his lessons, follows his footsteps, it is by definition “another way”. It doesn’t mean Christ isn’t the right way, …. since it would still be his teachings, understand? This doesn’t mean every way is his way, evil teachings like Ayn Rand egoism are not his way, for this reason satanism is not his way. But seriously though the symbols themselves are meaningless, just like faith alone is meaningless, it’s the teachings that matter. It’s serving mammon that makes you a satenist, even if you read Ayn Rand and THINK you belive in Christ.

      [Most of these comments made me feel sad and hopeless for humanity.]

      Apart from those who have a relationship with Jesus Christ, ultimately humanity is hopeless and sad because humanity is mainly evil sinners in need of the savior, Jesus of Nazareth, who “according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for” those of us who believe (1 Peter 2:3).

      […this is not a place for equality or any type of understanding]

      If you were looking for the espousing of equality between belief systems of worshiping the God of the Bible vs. worshiping false gods, then no, this is definitely not a place for “equality”. For Jehovah, the God of the Bible, “is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation,” whereas “[t]he gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens,” (Jeremiah 10:10-11). Jehovah reigns supreme forever. “Equality” among gods is therefore null & void.

      As far as “understanding” goes, if you expected a place where “understanding” means acceptance of pagan lies being as valid as God’s truth, then no, this is not a place of that type of “understanding.” This is a place where the idea is promoted that “[t]he fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding,” (Proverbs 9:10). So I’m happy to disappoint you if you had the misconceptions I mentioned.

  60. Baphomet means different things to different people. He is often more so regarded as a symbol than an actual being. (Not that there aren’t those who do regard him as a being of some kind.) To equate Baphomet solely with the Christian Devil is short-sighted, however. For many people, so-called “occultists” (those involved in the traditions of Western esotericism) included, Baphomet is nothing more than an archetype and symbol of liberty and personal initiation into spiritual practice and gnosis. (Or “enlightenment”, if you’d like to use a term more appropriate to Eastern religions.)

Just because a Luciferian says something doesn’t mean you should automatically take their word for it. You have to look at the whole body of their practices & sayings, not just one statement. They are liars, just like their spiritual father, Satan himself. And they are experts at double entendre, hidden meanings behind some of their statements and contradictions sometimes purposely done to confuse.

  62. I stumbled upon this site to learn the meanings of baphomet. I completely knew I was going to get a Christian point of view on this. I was raised Catholic an alter boy and all. Once priest started raping little boys I denounced my religion. I always felt something was funny with it. I always asked “Why?” I got the same stupid answer of “You should never question God. It’s God’s will it’s God’s way” This was NOT a viable answer to anything. Basically i was taught a man created everything in 7 days and that Adam and Eve were the first on Earth, Moses parting the black sea and everything about Jesus. I heard the same stories year after year during the same times of years. While I was encouraged to read the bible the people doing the encouraging never read the bible. I tried Christianity and the priest there cheated on his wife. Talk about a let down. I really just didn’t understand what Jesus was doing for these people. This brings me to more of a present day me. I started working in the semiconductor industry and what my eyes have seen are mind blowing. It’s hard to believe man came up with this crazy technology. I started researching where this came from. I found conflicting reports it came from the Roswell NM UFO crash down to American claimed technology from the Nazi’s after WWII. What does this have to do with religion? Everything! I now had something to research, something with some fact to it. Something with documents behind it. The bible is a mere mystery written in 3rd person…all of it! I mean, who was around to witness a man called God making the universe in 7 days to document it? These are questions that started popping up. I’m smarter now and have a magnitude of resources to research farther into my profession. Is the technology from UFOs? Who were in these craft? Where did they come from? Did God create them too? So I research farther and the more I do the more I read the bible and moved even farther away from religion as I was starting to realize a religion is just an organization of people that believe one aspect of a unproven story and discredit anyone that doesn’t believe what they believe. I was laughed at, ridiculed, and told I was stupid for just thinking. The more I was told this the more I started to realize religion promoted hate in between other religions. Is this what God created us for? Who was this God? Who really was Jesus? Who are these people that dominate our thinking that make us despise our own humankind? The more into Nazi’s I looked the more I found occult ideas. What are these? All I know are devil ideas that the church told me. There is a devil out there that will try to steal your soul. What is this soul? I’m so engulfed in history I can’t put it down. I mean the history before any Jesus. The Earth is 5 billion years old. No way I can base my life from a man that lived only 2000 years ago. Being a Diffusion Engineer I need to think logically and believing in a man only 2000 years old answers zero questions of pyramids and the worlds mysteries. I search farther and see ancient paintings during Jesus times with UFO’s flying around. I’m curious…is this the same type UFO’s that crashed and I now make the technology from it? I read the bible more and notice all the UFO references in it. I think “there has to be something to all this”. I feel at this point my life has be wasted learning only bits and pieces of true history. I really get into ancient text. I realize the bible has stolen many stories from other civilizations. The book of Genesis for one. A story that mentions multiple Gods and how we were created in their imagine Genesis 1:26 but all I was taught was Genesis 1:27. Why was this? I realize now we are not a product of apes. That were were put here by some superior race of human beings…you guys call these Gods or one God. After years and years (over 15 years now) of religious research and alien research there is a connection. God is not a man, Jesus was not the son of a God…we was just a man that taught a great word on how to live a just and moral life. He was put here by aliens. The outer race that can’t interfere with our life but reside in the heavens and manage the stars and other races from other stars using a counsel of Gods. Could this be more likely? I have to think logically. If there is a counsel of Gods then what is this devil? I learned a ton about the soul and what the soul is here to do and hat man is designed to do…learn and gain wisdom. But you can’t learn with a closed mind….religion shut of my mind and told me not to ask questions. I learned the soul reforms again and again until it had gained enough wisdom to become one with God…or the Creation, the Creational energy that powers our soul. So what’s the devil still? The devil is nothing. There are good souls and bad souls….light and dark. That a spiritual battle is being fought in a spiritual dimension. That if you give your soul to the dark (that claimed to be the light) you will have everything you want but your soul will never evolve. I learned this is not a path I want to go down. I don’t need money that much nor do I need fame. But the logical thing to do is study your enemy. Only a fool doesn’t research Satanism to understand their weapons they use against us. I learned America was founded on Satanism which is why we see it in our everyday lives on TV. Baphomet horns are everywhere now. I learned that Judaism is derived from Satanism or Pagan practices. I can see and understand why they want a NWO, but it’s the people in charge and the mission that is evil or dark in nature. I learned we are all one. People are with the stars, heavens, dirt, plants, and animals. We all are linked. I learned there was so much more to life than to put it towards one religion. Why would anyone want to shut off their mind? Why would you not want to learn all you can learn? I learned my body is just a vessel to carry me through this life that I will die and rise again, just like Jesus. I will live many lives. I will have many dreams. I learned I’m not afraid to die anymore that dying is just a portal to a new life. I learned that there are thousands of billion of galaxies with thousands of billions of stars and it is impossible that we are the only race of humans in the vast universe. I searched for answers…..one day I got my answer. I was chosen to see God for what it is. I got experience pure love. I got to visually see The Creation. I got to be one with the creational energy that powered my spirit. It was nothing like I was taught by churches. But it was similar to what ancient text had to say. It as logical. It needed to create good and bad so the human can learn and gain wisdom. It will take us a very long time to oust this evil. But it’s up to us as humans to control what we learn. I am a better man now. I try not to judge but I see evil everywhere. I feel it’s hard to escape but I know dying for what I believe is better than living a life of lies and evil. Life is much more than we can imagine. I like symbolism because even good has crazy symbolism. There is magic of the stars. There’s a knowledge someone knows but they use it for bad. It’s the same magic (dark and light magic) just used differently. It’s what God (an Ishwish or King of Wisdom) cast the angels from the stars for teaching humans the magic when they were not ready. The counsel intervened. The fallen want to prove a point. Where has your God been in all this? Doing noting because he Creation is the true God, not a man. Christian die everyday in war. There is war among many religions, where is God? Where is he? Where is this man is the sky? Ask yourself is it logical for all this death to happen? No. It’s logical to just learn all you can and gain wisdom and you will find the true Creation.

    1. Mike,

      Where is God? Saving people from their sins everyday so they can make a positive difference, no matter how small, in their part of the world. Hospitals were a concept thought up by people who worship the God of the Bible. So were orphanages. If man is such the advanced creature you wish him to be, then why is it that the world is still in such bad shape? Man has messed up the world, yet you wish us to rely on messed up men to come up with the ultimate solutions to our problems?

      Wouldn’t it be logical to look at how messed up we all are and conclude that the answer to our problems must come from someone much higher and way more intelligent and way more powerful than any force in the universe? You attempt to dismiss the Bible because you claim no human was around to see it. Yet, you turn right around and cling to UFO origin theories. What human was around to see it? So your statements contradict. If you dismiss the Bible based on that argument, then why cling to UFO theories?

      You overlook a huge fact. If a being exists who has to be intelligent and advanced enough to create all time, matter, and space–the things that science proves had a beginning–wouldn’t that being automatically be intelligent enough to prove his existence without depending solely on human witnesses yet reserve the right to have human witnesses if he so chooses? He would also have to exist outside of time, matter, and space and not be subject to it. Yet your argument falsely presupposes and assumes that such a being must be subject to time, matter, and space and human logic when your words clearly show that you really don’t have concrete answers but are making guesses and leaps of blind faith.

      If human logic is faulty, as is made clear by your words, how is it that you would expect God to be confined to your human logic? The statements made in the Bible–whether they be historical, scientific, or spiritual–have to withstand the ability to test them in the real world to see if they bring forth valid, believable results. That’s exactly what the Bible does. I give plenty of examples of this elsewhere here on my blog. It’s easy to blame others for your rejection of God, but the bottom line is that people reject God because they love their sin and would rather not have someone confront them with the argument that they need to be saved from them.

      A blatant lie. The founders of modern Satanism were known to have participated in seances to contact the spirit world. Ever heard of H. P. Blavatsky? Other prominent Luciferians/Satanists of her day did seances. And that tradition continues among you today.

      [We don’t go to heaven.]

      Yes, of course, I’m well aware Satanists don’t go to heaven. Thank you for stating the obvious. But plenty of people who have a relationship with God, who either died and came back or had near-death experiences, or people healed from sicknesses by means beyond science, have given powerful testimony backed by facts that offer valid proof of heaven’s existence.

      So your statements boil down to some simple things. You love sin. You love your spiritual father, Satan. So using his tactics like lying are what you must do to promote your religion by any means necessary.

  67. Well this is probably the most biased and under-researched article I have ever read. Baphomet does not have any direct links to Satanism, other than the Church of Satan creating their own sigil of Baphomet to use as the church’s copyrighted logo; however, that is a fairly recent development that doesn’t have anything to do with the real meaning behind the Baphomet idol. The Knights Templar were the first to have brought the idol into light; in a letter, written by one of the crusaders whom mentioned Baphomet, mentioned the idol in a form that is equivalent to modern Christians saying, “God, bless us,” or, “God, be with us.” That may be a rough example, but that is basically how Baphomet was mentioned in the letter. Also, it is more than likely Baphomet is a poorly translated verion of Mahomet, or Mohamed; the Templars spent a lot of time in the Middle East and they as well brought a lot of the esoteric teachings of the Kybalion and other Hermetic knowledge, of which originated in the Middle East and in Egypt, before Christianity, back with them into Europe. So it would be safe to say Baphomet is likely just the Islamic prophet lost in translation. Another point, over the years, the idol has become used a lot more in pagan circles due in largely to Eliphas Levi’s Baphomet, which is as esoteric as it is a personal illustration draw by its author. “Solve et coagula,” the inscriptions upon the arms of idol, translates, from Latin, into Seperate and Together. This has to do with one of the 7 Hermetic Principles: The Principle of Polarity. This principle states (I am quoting the Hermetic book The Kybalion), “Everything is duel… everything has its pair of opposites, opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree… all truths are but half-truths…” This maxin, “solve et coagula,” refers to the yin and the yang, or the Light and Darkness, or the universal struggle of Good and Evil. Another thing, is that the actual goat head depicted is to represent man in his most vicious and primal state. It represents how cruel and frightening we can be. The Baphomet is more of an idea than an actual deity. True, some refer to it and worship it as an idol (Note how I refer to Baphomet as an “it,” because it is androgynous, being that is has both breasts and a phallus, this refers to the seventh Hermetic Principle, The Principle of Gender, and it being androgynous is to represent perfect balance in a carnated form), the Baphomet itself may just very well be the Islamic prophet, because before Levi’s drawing of Baphomet, it was never depicted as a horned-god, not once. So it would be inaccurate to say Baphomet is a horned-god, but that it being horned is merely a form the Baphomet may take, as being it’s the only common visual representation, so if somebody who devotes their time to worshipping the idol says they’ve seen Baphomet via scrying or through a vision or a dream or meditation or in what ever way, it would be that they saw it in its horned form because that is how we would imagine it to look and that is how our brains would depict the idol as. I could f*****g go on for hours about what is wrong with this article, like how alchemy was actually a form of Hermeticism and that alchemy was never actually oriented around literally turning base metals into gold. Turning base metals into gold is an esoteric reference that implies alchemy is the sturdy of turning base metals (ordinary individuals) into gold (gold was enlightenment through spiritualism and philosophy).

I looked up in the encyclopedia and found that ot has something to do with deceit l, trickery and merchants… There is no evil in God at all. Not a speck. He can make hearts pure and transform peoples lives through Jesus. He has mine.

  68. So in sacred geometry you can find both the pentagram as well as the holy trinity. The symbols in geometry are permanent so all no matter what time can see the blueprint of God. It symbolized unity and equality and unmasks all duality. There is no right or wrong and peace is found through silence and nature. You are an animal so you contain the beast. You are man and contain duality both create the romance that is life and death no need to fear either. Go draw the flower.

    1. There is only one spiritual truth and it’s only found in God’s word, aka the Bible. You say, “there is no right or wrong” regarding spirituality, but all the major religions claim the other ones are wrong and they are right, and by saying “there is no right or wrong” you are saying the major religions are wrong and that you are right. Therefore, you contradict yourself and your statement isn’t true.

      You say peace is found through silence and nature. Silence of what? And what part of nature? I’m sure you’ve probably seen nature documentaries, right? The ones on Africa’s nature show predators chasing down their prey, doing what comes naturally in nature. Often the chase causes a herd of potential prey to stampede. Not very quiet, but it’s nature. Speaking of nature, birds chirping or calling out isn’t silence, but there is often serenity in that.

      If the peace you refer to is spiritual peace, no genuine spiritual peace can exist inside of a person without the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. Bottom line–you’re on the wrong path that in the end will not save you from your own sins. All it will do for you is bring God’s judgment. You need to forsake your sins and confess Jesus as your Lord while you have the time.

  69. Gay Boy, you should know me. I love reading your posts. i always receive them and follow your new links that i might have missed.
    i would like to clarify a few things, i really mean no disrespect. (i already anticipate your COMMENTS\STATEMENTS in reply to me. Please think about what i ask and answer me as truthfully as possible, i just want to know the truth.. that is all i ask.)

    1) how do you know that Jesus actually lived on earth, died for our sins, was a real person and the son of god.
    2) What makes Christianity superior to other religions.
    3) Why is there so much of animosity between the different christian churches,
    4) Is there a heaven or hell. if so how do you know.
    5) what qualifications and number of years do you have in religion that makes you posts your posts.

    Thank you for your understanding and please post something on my 5 point. like i said i just want to to know the truth.

    Thank you

    1. Woody,

      First and foremost, I’m not gay so don’t include me with people who don’t know the true purpose of their body parts and whose path is headed toward hell. I’m saved and sanctified by the blood of Jesus. Secondly, all of your topics have been covered by several posts I’ve done over the years here at this blog. If you really want to know, try using the search feature. All I’ll do for you for now is get you started by pointing you toward the answer to your first question–> https://sunandshield.wordpress.com/2010/02/13/is-the-new-testament-truthful-pt-2/

  70. Baphomet is an abomination to the Lord. It is rebellious towars the will of God. That concept or doctrine that good cannot exist without evil is a lie of the devil.

    Me, I worship the God of Israel, The One Who Spoke and everything was created. Jesus is His only begotten Son, who was perfect in everyway and was crucified for mankind’ sin, but then arose from the dead on the third day. He came to His own, but His own would not receive Him. God caused them to be blind in order to save the gentiles also. Saving the gentiles to provoke the Israelites to jealousy, so that in His plan they will return to Him and be saved. And they will. God bless the Jewish people. Because of them, their Patriarch, Abraham and Hid decendants, Jesus came into the world. And so, jews and gentiles alike could experience His grace, mercy and love. But then came that Mystery Babylon religion. Which has been around since Nimrod. Satan said, i cannot stop this Jesus. Satan then infiltrated the “church” and to this day, many are deceived. Purgatory, sunday worship, which eventually led to us not keeping His Sabbath, praying to mary and other saints, salvation through the sprinkling of baptism, priest forgiving sins, communion taken as the actual blood and body of Christ, etc…. None of these things are in line with the Word of God, which is the same Entity who created all things (through Him and for Him). Just read the Bible. Keep His commandments, including His feasts. Turn away from your fathers traditions, running your children through the fire. And yes, in today’s christian churches there are many pagan symbols and rituals being practised. But, i belive that those being deceived, even though deceived, they have something called faith. And so, faith the size of a mustard seed goes a long way. If the Father grants His Son to a person and that person receives Him… That person will be good to go. But if people choose darkness, rather than His light… Then, God will allow you to believe satans deceptions. One day, the Church will marry Jesus and will become One with Him. That day is soon approaching. We better examine the Word and our hearts to make sure we are pleasing Him and keeping His commandments because those that do not keep His commandments, well, they might not really know Him as they think they do.

    Harry, I love you brother. May the God of Israel bless you and keep you continually. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!
