While gay “marriage” is seen nowhere in ancient history, the seeds of homosexual unions are firmly planted in classical paganism. First, the Greeks were open to the potential for men to have homosexual relations. For example, in one of the most notorious developments in history, homosexual pedophilia was highly developed in ancient Greece. This cult of pederasty was ostensibly used for instruction. Further, homosexual acts by adults were noted in culture and the arts.

Romans also tolerated homosexuality, yet with a twist. Officially, homosexual acts between Roman citizens merited the death penalty. Yet, any sex acts done with a slave, even children, were totally acceptable. This was because slaves were not technically persons under the law. Yet, no ancient society ever allowed homosexuals the right to marry. Further, the Christian theology placing Christ’s relationship to the Church as an analogy to human marriage certainly meant that no straight reading of the Bible could ever condone such an idea. That America now legislates such actions is a powerful statement on our true pagan faith.

Paganism therefore rejects biblical revelation of the One God, and an objective definition of truth—replacing it with a regime of superstition, earth worship, polytheism, and radical humanism. The latter is the replacement of any traditional Western idea of religion with rank secularism, however that might attain. An example of the latter would be Marxism with its savage embargo of God, which replaced tradition with a comically inept reign of humanistic pseudo-science, totally rejecting constitutionalism, natural law, and human rights.

Don't confuse "modern Christianity" with the Bible. The Bible IS the most ancient writings on the subject of man - dating back in some cases over 4000 years. All of the "pagan" sources you mention are actually written after most of Genesis.  Yes, modern Christianity is packed with Paganism, but the Bible gives us the true God and the The Plain Truth what God's message is.  Paganism's roots started with Nimrod, but God's roots started before the creation of the universe.  Your view on God, is basically the same view that most believers have today - a God that has no consequences - one that allows us to do anything want to do - yet all around us we see the results of your belief system -  Death and destruction! The death and destruction means only 1 of 2 things
1) There is no God

2) That God does not intervene

I know there is a God, so #2 is my answer - and the answer presented in the pages of the Bible.  The Bible that explains why God does not intervene....  Read the Bible and find out why -  you can order our translation with all of God's words in RED.....

The writer's claim that the prophesies of the Bible are ripped off from the pagan calendar is simply unfounded. Throughout history, it has been the pagan cultures who have borrowed from and twisted the truth of the Bible into a toxic blend of a little bit of truth mixed with a whole lot of untruth and deception. The deception originated in the Garden of Eden when Satan spoke with Eve.

Satan is not a personification of fear, as the writer suggests. Satan is actually a very real character. He is a fallen angel, in fact, one who formerly was a guardian cherub at the throne of Almighty God. He was expelled to Earth and is called "the god of this world" in the New Testament. He is called that because most people generally reject the ways of the true God that lead to eternal life, and instead follow the ways of Satan, breaking the divine instructions given by God. Remember, Satan had actual conversations with people in the Bible, including Eve in the Garden of Eden, and Jesus when He was tempted by the devil for 40 days and nights in the wilderness. Jesus Himself said that He saw Satan fall from heaven. God is a superior force to the created being known as Satan, but He allows the evil to exist to demonstrate to mankind the horrific outcome of not following the divine laws that lead to life.

The claim that America's Founding Fathers "were NEVER Christians" is absurd. Most of them did, in fact, worship Jesus Christ as the God of the Bible. The very first act of Congress was to appropriate money to have Bibles published. The artwork all over the U.S. Supreme Court (inside and out) depicts Moses and the Ten Commandments.

The writer's statement that "You are of Divine origin" is correct, but don't forget that EVERYTHING we know of is of divine origin. All rocks are designed and created by Jesus Christ. So are all mosquitoes. So is every strawberry. But just because something is of divine origin, does not mean it is alive forever or has all knowledge. The source of all life on Earth and knowledge is Jesus Christ, the Maker of all things, and by His mercy and love for the creations He made in His own image (that's us, folks), He is in the process of having divine offspring, whom the New Testament calls "the children of God."

Has anyone ever noticed that the so called prophesies of the Bible are ripped off from the astrological pagan calendar? Look for the original, unchanging truth. We are all one with the Universe. This is the definition of paganism. Oneness. We are all created by the same creator and laws of nature. I would state that God, our common Creator, is all powerful. Satan is simply a personification of Fear, which was created by God to give us a choice. Free will, remember? And while there is Power in Paganism... It shows that "God, who causes the sun to shine on both the just and unjust, does manifest through both." Our forefathers came here seeking religious Freedom, and promptly built a city in the shape of an upside down pentagram. They were NEVER Christians. Anyone caught seeking similar power was called a witch and burned, the natives were slaughtered. We have been duped to think that real power should be Feared and comes from Satan. On what planet could God, the Creator of All, lose any battle to an inferior force? He has no equal. He needs nothing. He has no motive except Love and Freedom for all. That is the image of God. With all the love I possess, I would state that there is no reason to listen to me, or anyone else. Find the Truth inside of you. God loves you, and doesn't need a book to manifest his Word in your Heart. You are of Divine origin, just like everyone else. I read the Bible for Christ's words. In Christ, there is Truth. The rest of the Bible should be carefully considered before belief.

I too find a lot of pagan in every day life. Our money, with the all-seeing eye on top of a pyramid, the days of our week, the way the city of DC has been built (look at a topo map, the streets make a pentagon) etc. It is everywhere. And Satan is not stupid. He is full in power here on earth, and knows it.
 
Pagan symbols is actually quite the good study. I have done a lot of research on this topic...and the results are amazing. Everyday things that we take for granted...are actually symbols used to bring light to the wicked.
 
Like I said, Satan isn't stupid.

The ditors of this site ran some informative articles about the symbols of Christmas and their true origins. How many of you know other pagan symbols in the USA? Here is a partial list. Maybe The Plain Truth might want to do some stories on these as well. Do you think God cares? I do.


The following symbols were in Ancient Rome (and Egypt) And now they are in and ALL OVER the United States.

Isis - The Egytian "Queen of Heaven" Semiramis  condemned in scripture, who Catholics changed to "Mary" when they gave Biblical titles to the pagan gods.(also known as Nimrod's wife and EASTER) = The Statue of Liberty


She was called Semiramis wife of Nimrod in ancient Babylon, and Isis wife of Osiris in Egypt, or commonly by the title "queen of heaven"






Ignorant people believe the Statue stands for Liberty and they are not totally wrong. But it is the Liberty to be free of obedience to God and Gods laws.

Jeremiah 7:17-20 Do you not see what they are doing in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?  The sons gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me.  Do they provoke Me, says Jehovah? Is it not themselves, to the shame of their own faces? So the Lord Jehovah says this: Behold, My anger and My fury will be poured out on this place, on man and on animal, and on the trees of the field, and on the fruit of the ground. And it will burn and will not be put out.

Jeremiah 44:17-25  But we will certainly do whatever thing goes out of our own mouth, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings, and our rulers, in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. And we had plenty of food, and were well, and saw no evil.  But when we stopped burning incense to the queen of heaven, and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked all things, and have been devoured by the sword and by the famine.  And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven and poured out drink offerings to her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings to her, without our men? Then Jeremiah said to all the people; to the men, and to the women, and to all the people who were answering, The incense that you burned in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, you, and your fathers, your kings, and your rulers, and the people of the land, did not Jehovah remember them? Yea, it came into His heart.  And Jehovah could no longer bear because of the evil of your doings, because of the detestable things you have committed. For this reason your land is a waste, and a horror, and a curse, without one living in it, as at this day. Because you have burned incense, and because you have sinned against Jehovah, and have not obeyed the voice of Jehovah, in His Law, or in His statutes; and because you did not walk in His testimonies, therefore this evil has happened to you, as at this day.  Jeremiah also said to all the people, and to all the women, Hear the Word of Jehovah, all Judah in the land of Egypt. So says Jehovah of Hosts, the God of Israel, saying: You and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hands, saying, Performing we will perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings to her. Lifting up you lift up your vows and performing you perform your vows.

When the Roman emporers gave a Christian veneer to this pagan religious system, they called her "Mary, queen of heaven" which explains their odd veneration for a figure in scripture who is mere human like the rest of us.

 
 
 


Mars - (or Osiris in Egypt)(Nimrod) - Is the Pagan Warrior God = Mars on the USA capitol building
Millions have admired the Carving in the Capitol building (front door statue), taken pictures along side it and visiting with family and friends.
 

The Washington monument is a large obelisk which is condemned by God in scripture as an evil pagan symbol.
The Vatican resides on the former temple site of the Roman Sun god, Mithras. The ancient Obelisk phallic symbol in St. Peter's Square was brought to Rome from Heliopolis (Greek for Bethshemesh, House of the Sun), Egypt, by the cruel homosexual Roman Emperor Caligula in 37 AD. It originally stood in his circus on a spot to the south of the basilica, close to the present Sacristy. Sixtus V had Domenico Fontana move it in 1586 to the center of St. Peter's Square:



God specifically condemned this filthy symbol:

Jeremiah 43:10-13 say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Behold, I am going to send and get Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and I am going to set his throne right over these stones that I have hidden; and he will spread his canopy over them.  "He will also come and strike the land of Egypt; those who are meant for death will be given over to death, and those for captivity to captivity, and those for the sword to the sword.  "And I shall set fire to the temples of the gods of Egypt, and he will burn them and take them captive. So he will wrap himself with the land of Egypt as a shepherd wraps himself with his garment, and he will depart from there safely. "He will also shatter the obelisks of Heliopolis, which is in the land of Egypt; and the temples of the gods of Egypt he will burn with fire."'"

The same phallic symbol is also prominent in Washingto DC:



There are about 16 verses that condemn this evil symbol, but here are just a few more:

Leviticus 26:1  'You shall not make for yourselves idols, nor shall you set up for yourselves an image or a sacred pillar, nor shall you place a figured stone in your land to bow down to it; for I am the LORD your God.

Deuteronomy 12:2-3  "You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations whom you shall dispossess serve their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree.  "You shall tear down their altars and smash their sacred pillars and burn their Asherim with fire, and you shall cut down the engraved images of their gods and obliterate their name from that place.

2 Kings 10:25-28  And they went into the city to the house of Baal, and brought out the pillars of the house of Baal and burned them.  And they broke down the pillar of Baal, and broke down the house of Baal, and made it an outhouse to this day.  And Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.

The obelisk is symbolic of the shaft of baal and is an evil symbol condemned by God.


Drive in most cities in the USA and look at the old courthouse or Government building. Take a close look at the carvings. You will find Pagan Gods, Gargoyles, Beasts of all kinds.
