Sinister Sites – Temple Square, Utah

349

Situated at the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah, Temple Square is the spiritual, cultural and administrative center of the Mormon faith.  This ten acres plot of land includes a Temple, a domed tabernacle and numerous buildings,  monuments and memorials. While this place may seem holy and wholesome, a closer look at the structures reveal the presence of occult, pagan and masonic symbols. A deeper study of those grounds only adds to the controversy regarding Mormonism and reveals the disturbing truth about its real god.

Creepy…

This article’s intent is not to condemn Mormonism as a faith, but rather  to analyze the symbols in Temple Square in an objective matter. A visitor of this religious area finds himself surrounded with symbols esoterically associated with Black Magic, evil or ancient paganism. Why are these symbols visible on supposedly Christian buildings, of all places? Many ex-Mormons have claimed that the LDS secretly leads followers to the worship of Lucifer. Are they right?

The Temple

The Temple is the centerpiece of Temple Square and acts as the heart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The building itself is stern and imposing and surrounded with many sculptures. It is said to accomplish the same functions as the ancient Temple of Jerusalem. While we can write pages on how this is not true, we’ll focus on the structure itself.

Temple Square

Inverted Pentagram

The exterior of the Temple contains numerous symbols which are not simply remnants of ancient paganism but directly associated with evil. The most blatant symbol is the inverted pentagram.

pent0a

This symbol is found all around Temple Square, in multiple forms. An upright pentagram stands for the five elements, protection against malignant spirits and is an embodiment of the Golden Proportion. It also signifies the dominance of the divine spirit on the lower nature of Man. Conversely, an upside down pentagram represents the submission of the spirit to matter and the submission of man to his lowest impulses.

pentagram_lucifer_satan2
Eliphas Levi’s rendering of the upright and inverted pentagram. Contrarily to popular belief, Levi did not come up with the use of the inverted pentagram as a negative symbol. It was used in ritual magick centuries before the publication of his work.


“The pentagram with one point upwards repels evil, but a reversed pentagram, with two points upwards, is a symbol of the Devil and attracts sinister forces because it is upside down and because it stands for the number 2. It represents the great Goat of the witches’ sabbath and the two upward points are the Goat’s horn.”
-Richard Cavendish, The Black Arts

 

Sun, Moon and Stars

moon1

The walls of the Temple bear Sun stones, phases of the moon and stars (in the form of inverted pentagrams). Those three celestial bodies can be found on ancient pagan temples and their use can be traced back to the times of Baal Worship. Through Mystery Religion, occult orders like the Freemasons have preserved those symbols and still apply them on their own monuments.

All Seeing-Eye

This classic masonic symbol representing the “Great Architect” is right on the facade of the Temple. It is surrounded by glory and a veil. It most probably represents the initiatic process of the Mormon Church, which is very similar to the one Freemasons go through.

Secret Handshake

050401cricket_ihop

Like Freemasons, Mormons learn secret handshakes and passwords during their initiation process. This handshake is on the facade of the Temple and is similar to the handshakes portrayed on Masonic buildings and monuments such as this one:

secret-masonic-handshake-g_551

On top of the handshake is the saying “I am Alpha and Omega”, which is taken from the Book of Revelation. It can be translated as “I am the beginning and the end”. The fact that it is placed on top of the handshake, the symbol representing LDS’s secret doctrine, makes me wonder who is the Alpha and Omega.

Baptismal Font

baptismal-font

Each Mormon Temple has its own baptismal font, mounted on the backs of twelve life-size oxen.  Mormons say it is modeled after the “laver” which was situated at the entrance of Solomon’s Temple. The only thing they’ve forgot to mention is that the laver was used by priests to clean themselves after animal sacrifices (laver means “to clean”). It was not used to baptize people. It was certainly not used for the “baptism of the dead”, a Mormon practice where deceased people become posthumously part of the Mormon church. Numerous scandalous baptisms have taken place where, for example, holocaust victims were baptized without the family’s consent. More recently, Barak Obama’s mother, who died of cancer has been baptised by the Mormons without consent. There is no trace of this disturbing practice in ancient Christianity or Judaism. Ex-Mormons who have witnessed these ceremonies say the rituals dwell in the fields of witchcraft and spirit invocation.

 

Museum of Church History and Art

This museum displays exhibits celebrating the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its history. You can find information about their migration, settlements, and the men who have served as prophets and presidents  from 1830 to the present. There is also a special kid’s corner. What better place to display…inverted pentagrams?

Inverted Pentagrams

pent2

These two pentagrams appear at the entrance of the Museum of Church History and Art. Once again, it is important to stress the significance of this symbol as it is the equivalent of placing an upside down cross right on a church.

“In symbolism, an inverted figure always signifies a perverted power. The average person does not even suspect the occult properties of emblematic pentacles.”
-Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

The circled pentagram on the left is particularly significant due to the fact that it is used in Black Magick rituals.

“The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand. Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It
merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed.

The pentagram is used extensively in black magic, but when so used its form always differs in one of three ways: The star may be broken at one point by not permitting the converging lines to touch; it may be inverted by having one point down and two up; or it may be distorted by having the points of varying lengths. When used in black magic, the pentagram is called the “sign of the cloven hoof,” or the footprint of the Devil. The star with two points upward is also called the “Goat of Mendes,” because the inverted star is the same shape as a goat’s head.”
– Op. Cit

We can find more pentagrams in the museum in…the kid’s corner.

The Visitor’s Center

The Visitor’s Center is a tourist favorite but contains the most disturbing symbolism of Temple Square. It basically reveals the real object of worship of Mormonism.

Christus Statue

43370957_132efd8a46

The Christus Statue is said to be the icon of the LDS Church and is dramatically displayed in the Visitor’s Center. It is a replica of Bertel Thorvaldsen’s  Christus in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Mormon version is placed in front of an unusual setting: the universe. This might refer to the gnostic concept of “cosmic Christ”.

One detail is however striking and unusual. You might know that one of the most basic ways to analyze a work of art is through the relation between light and shadow. Well in this setting, the Christus figure is actually casting a shadow on planet Earth. Isn’t Jesus considered the “Light of World”? Casting a shadow on something symbolically means that is it keeping it in darkness and ignorance. If this figure of Jesus isn’t the source of light, what is then? The answer lies within the rotunda of the Visitor’s Center.

The Rotunda

pent3b

The rotunda faces the Christus statue and bears a special kind of inverted pentagram.

pent3a
Inverted pentagram with elongated bottom point

The bottom point of the pentagram is elongated. This detail which goes unnoticed by most visitors, carries heavy occult meaning. First, the irregular length of the bottom point represents a perversion of the power of Good. Second, this particular pentagram, with the bottom point falling down carries a precise esoteric meaning: the fall of Lucifer, the Fallen Angel, the Morning Star.

“When the upright star turns and the upper point falls to the bottom, it signifies the fall of the Morning Star.”
-Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

After establishing this fact, the light and shadow riddle can easily be solved. Lucifer, the light bearer, is considered the source of light of the universe. The figure representing Jesus Christ blocks the source of light on Earth and thus meaning that Christianity has an obscuring effect on mankind. So this setup, who apparently celebrates the coming of Christ on Earth represents in actuality the exact opposite.

15-270-3
The elite of the LDS in front of Christus

Throughout  history, all spiritual currents have regarded light as being the ultimate representation of good, truth, beauty, knowledge and divine wisdom. In all religious art, the source of light is of an utmost importance. Some ex-mormons have claimed that the LDS worships Lucifer in subtle yet deceitful ways. The symbolism in place sure do corroborate their testimonies.

Cain Offering

cainabel2
Cain’s offering

Another strange feature of the Visitor’s Center is the above arrangement: Adam and Eve kneeling in front of an altar which has fruit on it. This is a reference to Genesis IV, which describes the offerings of Cain and Able to God.

“1. And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.

2 And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.

4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering.

5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

6 And the lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted: and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door: and unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

8 And Cain talked with Abet his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.”
-Genesis, Chapter IV

To sum up the story, Cain and Abel were the sons of Adam and Eve.  Abel was in charge of sheep, while Cain took care of the ground. When it was time to give offerings to God, Abel slew a lamb in sacrifice while Cain gave fruit. God accepted Abel’s gift but rejected Cain’s fruit (the reason for this is unclear). Cain then lost his tempter and ultimately killed his brother.

The sculpture displayed at the LDS church portrays Adam and Eve offering fruit to God while a lamb (Abel’s gift) sits there alive and enjoying its non-sacrificed state. One can’t help but wonder: what does this piece represent if not a sense of resentment (maybe even defiance) towards a cruel and unjust god? Why do we portray Cain’s offering which was rejected by God? The meaning of this arrangement falls right into the beliefs of luciferians, who see God as a stubborn tyrant. Biblical and mythological figures who defy God are celebrated by the luciferian doctrine (see article on the Rockefeller Center). Lucifer, the light-bearer is considered to be hidden savior of humanity who brought the gift of godliness to humans.

Eagle Gate

pent1a

Situated at the corner of State St. and South Temple, the Eagle gate is yet an other occurrence of an inverted pentagram. We can find on top of it a huge 200 pound eagle clawing a beehive, the symbol of Utah, of Mormonism and coincidentally an important symbol of Freemasonry.

 

To Conclude

This article barely scratches the surface on the occult  symbols found at Temple Square. There are numerous esoteric concepts that can be studied such as reflective pools (who embody the notion of “As Above so Below”), phallic and yonic symbols, astronomical references to Saturn and many more. Without even having previous knowledge of the history, philosophy or beliefs of the LDS, a symbol-literate person can grasp the core intent of this church by reading the meaning of their art. The rituals, symbols and modus-operandi of the LDS are directly lifted from Scottish Rite masonry. The hidden meaning of the art at Temple Square incorporates a mix of pagan and subversive symbolusn and subtly celebrates the worship of Lucifer.


I do not claim to be a specialist of Mormonism or of Joseph Smith Jr., the Mormon prophet. I’ve tried to stay as unbiased as possible in the research and composition of this article.  I however know that the scriptures warn the world against false prophets and, from what I’ve gathered, Joseph Smith is as  false as it gets.  I hate to be the one to say it, but someone has to. Stay vigilant.

@MormonGirl

You said: " We like to remember the life of Jesus Christ, not his death."

His death was the most remarkable thing about him. He died for the sins of humanity, and then ROSE FROM THE DEAD. If he hadn't died on the cross, we wouldn't even be having this conversation. That's possibly the single most asinine statement I've ever heard from anyone claiming to be a follower of Christ: " We like to remember the life of Jesus Christ, not his death."

Really? Really. Wow.

John 17:17 says "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." If you look to God's word, it clearly states at Exodus 20:4 (one of the 10 commandments) "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:…" The use of "any" images is forbidden! Birds, Stars, Moons, fish, and yes, even crosses! There is no excuse to why using any image is acceptable! Plain and simple! 2Corinthians 5:7 says: "For we walk by faith, not by sight:" Why do those who profess to be Christians choose to use images of Jesus Christ as a helpless baby in a manger, or a dying man on a cross (stake) instead of seeing him with eyes of faith as a Glorious King in heaven, seated… Read more »
Very interesting article. I was brought up Mormon, and I've done babtisms for the dead. I was too young to understand any of it, and was basically just doing as I was told. They don't really even give you that much information on the ceremony or it's purpose, beyond the most simple 3 minute explanation. I haven't been to church in 20 years, and I never really believed the dogma, but I never imagined it was a luciferian, or satanic organization. I actually believed that overall, the church had a net positive affect on its members. Things like maintaining a pure body ("word of wisdom" doctine..no drink/smoke/coffee, etc.), the 10 commandments, pure mind, etc. That's what I learned in church. I never learned anything from that church that was in anyway anti-social, or what I would call evil. Certainly nothing ever resembling anything satanic, or black magic. I thought the… Read more »

There are plenty of books available in most public libraries, written by Mormon professors and authorities detailing the symbology and the meanings behind them. Please finish your research by talking to actual Mormons to balance those that have an issue with the Church. Then you can claim true journalistic credentials… right now, this article is not balanced and not well researched… and leads anyone with a logical and analytic thought process to begin to question the informaton on the rest of the sites you have here…. read the books, at a minimum, as I did… and then enlighten us with your new and well documented journalistic reportings. Thanks!

I also want to add that we live in a Luciferian world,we always have since the begining of time,some people don't want to realize it or admit it,but it is true,the english language was created for the purpose of using it for a one world language,it has messages that you don't even realize when you speak it,we preform rituals daily to worship "the gods",from our sports, to music ,to religion,etc. We have to realize this, and understand it, our spirit comes from the light but our bodies in this reality do not.

Anyone wondering what is true and what is not, instead of relying on anonymous people on the internet, get on your knees and ask God.

"You only see what you're looking for."

I agree that he was just bringing up facts. But you do realize that all the facts he brought up all had something to do with satanic religion, or evil influence. You are given facts, just not all of them.

Its weird….I mean, its horrible that they do this…but its highly offensive that they do it so openly. They stayed in secret for so long over so many years, and someone I guess needed attention. Typical spoiled brats. Eventually, this will become common knowledge. They know this, that's why they they're so blatent now, which is funny because with all the "power" they posess, they are scared, and panick often. But….yet, they still exsist so touché bastards

Mormons do not allow anyone of another faith in their churches, but you (Awake and Pissed/Ken) expect that speaking to Mormons will elicit honest insight into what we are seeing on, and in, these buildings? You are very naive if you actually think that Vigilant would get honest and forthcoming information by such an approach. Do you think that speaking to catholic priests, bishops, cardinals, or the pope will get information on why Catholic Churches have occult imagery? I think when some people SEE something that unsettles them, they attempt to look anywhere and to anyone to discount what they have seen. They want an acceptable reason for its existence. If you are truly "awake" you will see that religion is an institution of control that empowers those that wield its devices. I am not saying one should be an atheist, but your faith should allow you to discount those… Read more »

I was raised a Mormon and never really noticed these symbols around the temple. I remember some of them now, but since I was only a kid at the time, never studied or thought much about them. However that's all in the past now, as that religion no longer felt right for me. Thanks for the informative article.

mormons.lol theyre not christians. and im sorry i dnt believe whoever he was john sumthng was a prophet.just someone that bent wat the bible said then wrote his own book. they read the book of mormons more than the holy bible. vigilantcitizen this was great. i remember my mother would argue with the mormons everytime they knocked at our door.lol she'd leave them speachless. grab her bible and school them kids.lol i gotta put this page on fb. lol

Why are there any imagines in any Christian Church? Exodus 20 vs

4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

So I ask myself why are there any images in any church? Because their are many distortions of Christianity but I agree some are outright evil.

I am a member of the LDS church, although no longer active. I'll admit that it is due to a few things I am not ready to believe in. Having said that, until you have actually been inside a Temple and seen with your own eyes what goes on, you really don't know what goes on. You cannot make judgments based on what someone says, because that is heresay. Whether a religious organization is true or not true, we can all agree that people have faults. It is best not to confuse a person for a religion as a whole. Not all mormons are a**holes. Yes, some are. So are some catholics, jehovah's witnesses, baptists, etc. Because people aren't perfect. You're going to punish the whole class because one pupil was talking out of turn? C'mon. As far as I have studied personally, and by studied I mean attended, read,… Read more »

Some of these comment are rather sickening. If everybody just stopped ripping eachother, and there religions and beliefs, or non-beliefs apart, the world would be a much nicer place to be in. There is absolutely no need for all this 'my religion is better than yours' business. Could we all just get along, for once?

i honestly believe its how you use symbols, the way illuminati use it is just creepy and dosent feel good. The mormon church is all about agency, they want you to pray and ask God before you join, they want you to have your own testimony not leaning on others.

“We are walking by faith, not by sight.”—2 Corinthians 5:7. Also, “You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth." – Exodus 20:4 What is God telling us by these two scriptures? That, in order to live a life acceptable to HIS (not our own) standards, we must cultivate faith from the heart. It is also implied that symbols are not needed. With that in mind, one has to ask oneself, "why do most religions adorn their buildings and festivals with symbols, especially similar, parallel symbols? The answer? Because most religions have their roots in Babylon (hence the term "Babylon the Great" in Revelation 18, aka. the world empire of false religion). Babylon was where Nimrod, "a mighty hunter in opposition to Jehovah" started… Read more »
@ George and Everyone else….why not? Almost all of the symbolism in the christian church came about through the Roman Empire and it’s take over of many peoples. I will cite several examples…. The evergreen tree.. This was NOT from , as george put it “nimrod’s wife planted…yada yada”… In fact there are several Pliable theories, yours not included…. 1)late in the Middle Ages, Germans and Scandinavians placed evergreen trees inside their homes or just outside their doors to show their hope that spring would soon come… An act to the sun god for winter solstice..which is also where December 25th hails…. 2) In 722, Saint Boniface encountered some pagans who were about to sacrifice a child at the base of a huge oak tree. He cut down the tree to prevent the sacrifice and a Fir tree grew up at the base of the oak. He then told everyone… Read more »
I think that geroge was referring to a referrence work by one Alexander Hislop. I had to look it. Here it is (from The Two Babylons chapter three): The Christmas tree, now so common among us, was equally common in Pagan Rome and Pagan Egypt. In Egypt that tree was the palm-tree; in Rome it was the fir; the palm-tree denoting the Pagan Messiah, as Baal-Tamar, the fir referring to him as Baal-Berith. The mother of Adonis, the Sun-God and great mediatorial divinity, was mystically said to have been changed into a tree, and when in that state to have brought forth her divine son. If the mother was a tree, the son must have been recognised as the "Man the branch." And this entirely accounts for the putting of the Yule Log into the fire on Christmas-eve, and the appearance of the Christmas-tree the next morning. As Zero-Ashta, "The… Read more »

with the story of Cain and Abel, God rejected Cain's offering because He asked them to bring the best of their offerings, in which Abel brought the whitest and purest of his fold while Cain kept the best for himself and gave God the second best. Just clearing it up for u. 🙂

Well, The thing is that Cain ofered some flowers to god, because he didn´t have animals for a sacrifice, but god prefered the sacrifice ofered by Abel, and ignored Cain´s. Then, he saw that god prefers sacrifices, and gave him his brother; after that, god was so hipocrit and blamed him, after seting on him a defense seal. You can read it in Genesis…

Excellent article! I've had my doubts about the Mormon Faith, I did my research and we both got the same answers. So as you said they are as false a they get

Having read the article but not yet the commentaries, one thought prevails in my mind:

***Why didn't the author just ask the LDS about the meaning of the many, many symbols used in their religion?***

Write them an email at lds.org, call up your regional stake (that's what they call a branch), talk to some missionaries, send them scouring for official information….

btw, Joseph Smith joined the Freemasons in 1842 and afterwards introduced a lot of their symbolism and rites to the church. That's no secret at all. Also there is online a lot of their teachings regarding any topic the vigilant citizen should find delectable: evil, perversion, corruption of body and mind and what not…

Wow. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freemasonry_and_the_http://www.irr.org/mit/masonry.html. Maybe VC should do a few articles on Mormonism itself. That or Catholicism. I'd love to read that, though I would imagine it would have to be in a series. Maybe call it infiltration?

great article, like always :] while reading some comments, i cant help but notice the people saying how heaven is the only place where we can be away from this evil. one of my favorite songs, basically says just that. not meaning to troll, but gamma ray-dethrone tyranny 's lyrics are PERFECT. look em up. heres a link to youtube to the whole song

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOS0ax8RBrw

my favorite part of the song happens to be

"Illuminati

You'll never take control

Your new world order

Will lead to none at all

We all stand before you as one

Heaven is for everyone

To be free from the dark"

I often think to myself what if Christ is Satan and Satan is Christ? What a deception, what a lie, what a reality to then realize that all of religion was false and contrived figment of men seeking to control the masses while mind controlling the masses to believe a false hood that imprisons the mind instead of freeing mans soul to more lofty heights. The Catholic Church and what we think of Christianity has been created to control the masses. Such a mind trick is so evil as to leave me unable to describe my horror to think, just to think that perhaps they might be right. Perhaps it is all mixed up and it mixed up because those that did this evil need the division to keep control over those that never question what they are told so long as it came from the word of God.

There is also an inverted star in the corner made of stars in the picture with jesus casting a shadow on the world.

Well most of us would agree on this site that Masonic symbols do in fact appear at the Temple which OBVIOUSLY shows that there is a connection between the two. This being said, I read an article by an Ex 33rd Degree Mason which stated that once a person reaches the 33rd degree they cannot use the name Jesus nor study the Bible. So explain to me why this ONE faith cannot be studied but every other faith can be. Could it be possible that they know the truth? Can any of you that will deny my facts say with 100% confidence that its BS? I would be careful with your answer because there will be eternal consequences.

Symbols are just that–representations of other things. The meanings are only what we give them and do not have actual meaning in and of themselves. To claim that people are worshipping or representing evil by the symbols they use without knowing that to be a fact is admitting that we do not know the true definition of the word "symbol". Cultural Dictionary symbol definition An object or name that stands for something else, especially a material thing that stands for something that is not material.

Very good article, thank you Vigilant Citizen!

As for the rejection of Cain's offering, it is now clear for Christians, that it wasn't accepted by God because He wanted a specific type of offering, and before everything it was Cain's attitude that was proud and full of rebellion that made God to refuse his offering. =)

Peace.

The amount of vitriol that we generate in the name of religion is amazing. It always seems to have the same pattern though. "Your God is better than mine", "Our is the one and only true faith.","You will be cast to hell for your sin of being a non-believer", etc,etc……… Well just a little suggestion, why don't we just make sure to do as little evil and not hate and discriminate as much as possible? As far as I have seen, blind faith tends to do far more harm than good……..It leads to discrimination, wars and bloodshed. Both our heaven and hell are present on this earth…..It is only we who decide whether our life will become heaven or hell………………………..

Well said!

Again, we are supposed to be walking by faith, not by sight, but then again, faith is not the possession of all people. Nevertheless, I must confess that to do otherwise than contribute constructively to a forum is deemed bad manners, to put it lightly. How would you know what other people do, outside this forun? Isn't it presumptuous of you to critisise others when you do not know anyone else here, nor if and what they do to assist others in their awakening or in other areas of life? I have no doubt in my mind that there are persons of all faiths who are corrupt as well as persons in all faiths who are trying their best in life, including atheism, which also takes faith to NOT believe in a creator, sometimes more so, in fact, when you consider the realities of life.

As always, great article VC. This is my first time to comment but I felt I actually needed to spread some insight into a subject the religious folk on here seem hell bent (pun intented) on bringing up over and over. Cain and Able (like all passages in the bible and any other version, doctored or not) is a metaphor for something either relevant to the past, present or future, or even a 'divine truth' antrhropomorphized as something else. That being said Cain and Able represent the duality of early man. In all cultures there is this duality being represented by those who were the hunters (or in this case a herder) and those who were planters and lived off the earth. – see the Iroquois legend of flint the hunter and Sprout or plant boy. In the biblical tradition, the plant boy is Cain and the hunter (herder) is… Read more »
Also, concerning the use of symbols as either negative or positive and the fantasy ideal that a "symbol can mean whatever the viewer wants or feels it to" is pure ignorance. Let me ask those who think this way a simple question.. If our stop and go signs were suddenly interchanged with dollar signs and radioactive signs all the time, how would we be able to tell them apart? The world would be in worse disarray then those who shape our opinions would like us to believe it already is. Symbols may mean something entirely different from one person to another based on their education in this subject, but that does not deter the fact that our subconscious is tapped into the great Consciousness that makes up the Universe and is affected by these subliminally whether you recognize it or not. Fortunately there is something to be said in the… Read more »

Remember the reference to honey and bees in Lady Gaga's "Telephone" video?

You go to Utah and the state route signs are in the shape of beehives. Utah is known as the Beehive State.

The truth of the matter is that i was baptize in to this church when i was 8(eight) because that is the year any child born in the church will be baptize. The called them CHILD OF RECORD. But i don't know how true this is. I need someone to educate me beyond this line. Infact i have leave the church because i was told by my mummy that it is an ocultic church that i should stop going there. Well that was when i was a 15 yrs but now that ' am 20 and now want to face life am planning going back to the church because i love the worship, maybe i didn't know any thing about the church as a kid but with this now am getting all confused please i need help and more explanation. thanks

This disturbed me just as much as the Denver Airport Conspiracy.

The apparent thing here is that everyone has their own opinion and their own argument, which is good. No HIVE mind, yet. However, if you read the Protocols Of Zion you'll see that one of the biggest agendas is to pit one against another. We our of ONE WORLD, created by ONE GOD! Yet we have 192 "United Nations" (Vatican City isn't one of them.. hmmm…). From that we have confrontation; Left vs Right.. North vs South.. East vs West.. Blacks against Whites against Hispanics against Asians against (yes, that is still a problem), religion against religion, school against school, team against team, all the way down to city block vs city block. It's retarded. Nobody's going to ever be able to completely accept each other's difference and UNITE for the common GOOD, without bringing in their own pride or negativity for "the way things should be". That's why it's… Read more »

I am a member of the LDS church, and wish to give my opinion. If you were the devil, where would you focus most of your efforts in destroying God's work? You would focus on perverting God's teachings and God's churches. Every religion is so horribly and grotesquely perverted by the devil, the LDS church is just another church that has been infiltrated so severely it is disgraceful. Particularly because God chose Joseph Smith to try to restore Christ's true church, because all other churches had become so horribly corrupted, but alas, again the fate of Christ's church became perversion by the devil.

Whoa, thanks for posting this.

I live in Salt Lake. Been here three years. I visited Temple Square about a year ago. Although there was religious slander thrown all over, not once did I feel holy walking there. Great work capturing the symbols. I think I might take a walk there soon and take some pictures for myself.

THANK YOU.

I am a mormon. I'm now 21 years of age, I grew up in a mormon family and we were all sealed together in the temple and my parents are still together and everything. I do see you pointing out some strange symbols here that do look like pentagrams and etc.. Not really sure what to make of them. but all I know is, I was very rebellious growing up and started running with the crowd when I was about 16.. well this is when my life began to go down hill.. my spirit was starting to wither and die like a dry reed, it really was like that! So a long time of living in misery. I fogot about god and the church. I just figured I would go along with everyone else beliving in nothing and that we came from apes. well I found no joy in life… Read more »
Please, please, please do your research before you write any article. I would like to say, before I relay the facts which are easily found on the web, that a symbol is a subjective thing. You may see it as a sign of evil doings, but if the user believes otherwise, then your personal imposition of its meaning is useless. It means what it means to them so live with it. that said, look at the full history of these symbols and you'll find that they are anything but sinister at all until organised religion got its hands on them. Firstly, the pentagram which has existed for countless thousands of years, first dating back to around 3500 BC where it was used in Ancient Mesopotamia, at least latterly, by rulers as a symbol indicating that their power breadth the four corners of the known world. The early Greeks called the… Read more »

Oracle you may be right as Satan is the author of confusion, and even the symbols have double meanings.

Knowing that these symbols are both meant for white and black is another good reason to stay away from them.

A christian or person for that matter does not need any symbols, idols or representations of anything!

We worship in Spirit and in Truth, this is what pleases G-d the father.

Reflect on why you defend these symbols and representations, as a former catholic I can tell you it is better to be FREE in Christ, than be enslaved to man made superstition and idolatry.

@ mormongirl… "We have no secret handshakes or secret initiation practices– that’s just ridiculous!"

The beginning of this article says, "Many ex-Mormons have claimed that the LDS secretly leads followers to the worship of Lucifer." Notice the word 'secretly' … one definition of the word being: kept from the knowledge of any but the initiated or privileged.

your religion telling you the upside down star means "god's blessings being poured down on you" or whatever … its like when adults tell children that a stork drops babies off at your doorstep when they ask, 'where to babies come from?'

First of all I'd like to acknowledge anyone who stands up for their faith. Nowadays, not too many people try to defend their religion; so let me take a crack at it. Please keep in mind, I'm not doing this to make anybody feel bad.. or harass them. I'm simply doing this to expose flaws in the aforementioned and to hopefully do my part to make sure people are not being fooled. I am a Christian. I believe in what the Bible says. If you do too, MormonGirl, I suggest you pay attention to this. Through constant studying of both the Holy Bible (KJV) and beliefs of other doctrines, you would know that there are many out there to taint religion, infiltrate the TRUE Church (Col 1:18, I Cor 12:12-14; Matt 18:19-20; Matt 16:18) or impersonate Jesus himself (Matthew 24:5). Let's start with tainting Christianity. I'm sure you've heard the… Read more »

you are misunderstanding this. you really think god is just chillin up there in heaven ALONE? who was Jesus praying to? himself? nonsense.. he is the LORD OF HOSTS!

@LOVEROF CHRIST you are 100% correct that the LDS Doctrines contradicst the Holy Bible. In addition, the shocking thing to even LDS to realized for themselves is that the LDS Doctrine contradict The Book of Mormon!

THE BOM is a fraud but the fiction has truths in the principals and is not evil by any means.

***BOM is against WHOREDOMS like POLYGAMY*****

sorry, you are ignorant.. polygomy went on for a short time because a lot of men died protecting their wives and family.. also, the government was going to war against them! which by the way, is against the consitituion! a lot of the men died in war, and other reasons.. therefore there was more women then there was men! durring that time period WEMON actually relied on a MAN more than today! I know the mormon history very well.. a lot of the wemon were widows.. thats not very god like to just leave them to fend for themselves now is it? besides. you are a man of god right? you belive the bible right? well MOSES had more than one wife my friend! MOSES! one of the greatest persons in the history of the world and the greatest biblical figures! and also, who in the right mind. a 14… Read more »
No one knows who the anti-christ will be (so stop trying to figure out who and where/when he is!).. know one knows when god will come. Observe! but man will not and can not figure everthing out! david Icke doest have all the answers. the creator of the universe/god, christ jesus has the answers.. gods laws doesn't always apply to mans.. don't forget! I think it's safe to say god likes variety! if he didn't he would make all the trees look the same.. look, all we know is there is obviously a plan and we gotta follow it if you like it or not.. like bob marley says: "we've got to fullfil the book." stop fighting and stop the hateful remarks. we are to stick together.. not fight eachother!, you don't have all the answers, you havn't figured god out.. "mormongirl" is not your enemy here. she's NOT OUT… Read more »

You the the freaking IGNORANT how do you explain Einstein that he married two 14 yrs old…who had father, eight women who were already married. I read that your Mormon that’s fine….Whatever makes you happy. However, shut your mouth before you right ignorant comments down you are a 21 yrs old babe and have much to learn.
Want Proof!?

Sure check it out and by the way you can see it in family search too sorry to break your little heart about your Joseph poor baby…Hey, I thought the same thing you wrote down this is what they preach, until I discovered the truth! You can stay Mormon but know your LDS facts and history when you do….then I will have respect for your comments!

@LOVEROF CHRIST you are 100% correct that the LDS Doctrines contradict the Holy Bible. In addition, the shocking thing to even LDS to realized for themselves is that the LDS Doctrine contradict The Book of Mormon!

THE BOM is a fraud but the fiction has truths in the principals and is not evil by any means.

BOM testifies of the trinity not that God was once a man like us….who lives in Kolob

BOM is agaisnt secret combinations (witchcraft, secret societies, secret tokens, shakes etc anything in darkness or secretive)

BOM is against Satan all the way! Has protestant views as Joseph mother became a Methodist.

THE HOLY BIBLE is factual, the true word of God! The map to the Christians.

Also, you should look up Externalization and Desensitization. I'm not talking about the basic terms either. I mean, in regards to a NWO, the Anti-Christ, etc. You'll see that being accustomed to this sort of symbolism will fool you when "Christ" returns. I'm sure you'll see this very same symbolism everywhere when that time comes.

just wanted to point out, in the picture of the cosmc jesus where he is casting a shadow on earth, look at the top left. you will see 5 stars. connect the dots. inverted pentagram

i went to university in utah – living there, i found out that the majority of the state is LDS/Mormon. i also found out utah is the #1 state in america for prescriptions of anti depressant and anti anxiety medication. one wonders about the correlation between those two things.

stay vigilant, indeed.

I know that god loves us and wants us to return to him and that the way to do that is threw being diligent in seeking the truth and living its practices, I saw these things in thy sons name Jesus Chris Amen.

I would like to bare my testimony, That I know that following the teachings of Jesus Chris are the path to eternal life and everlasting happiness. I know that the teachings of all religions have truth and righteousness I have participated in numerous different religions and there practices and found truth and have felt the spirit of God our eternal father and his son Jesus Christ in all of those places and during all of their practices. I have never felt the spirit more overwhelming then when I have humbled myself in prayer before my heavenly father and asked to know not by fact but by the spirit of christ if what i was seeking to know was true. I know that god will answer our prayers and the only way to find the truth is within ourselves and the feeling the spirit delivers to our souls when we seek… Read more »

this explains the strange symbol that is used on the LaQuinta Inns..the sun with one of the rays longer and pointing downward. Can you do some reports on the symbols that we encounter everyday on Hotels, Oil Companies, Retail stores, etc… and their meanings?

Someone mentioned in the comments that God does not ask for money and that money is the root of all evil. That is false. The bible says the love of money is the root of all evil. Money in itself is not evil. We ought to love one another as christ has loved us. The bible says;) Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved… Read more »

You say that the reason was unclear why Cain's sacrifice of fruit was rejected. The reason it was, was because Abel gave his best lamb, and Cain gave his second-best harvest. It's that simple. Abel reserved his best for God and took the second best for himself, and Cain took the best fruits for himself and gave God the leftovers.

I read a lot of fear here in this article and the God I worship provides just the opposite, faith. When I was a teenager I listened to popular music, much of it rock and many of the adults were worried about back masking in the lyrics. Today I am amused. God does not allow his followers to wonder far from him. He will not hold me guilty because someone tricked me into worshiping Satan. He will hold me guilty for violating his commandments and if I truly love him I will keep them (John 14:15). Vigilant, as several people have pointed out there are many interpretations of the symbols you have noted. Very few of those interpretations are evil. In fact Lucifer (or Satan or Baal or whoever you want to call him) steals those symbols to create his false religion. The sun, moon and stars represent the three… Read more »

A name for Lucifer (Luci-fer, Venus as light-bringer); a fallen angel{NIV which is owned by Rupert Murdoch who also owns the copyrights the Satans Bible}, also called "Day Star," from certain translations of Isaiah 14:3-20.

A title of Jesus (KJB Revelation 22:16)

the so called "masonic eye" or seen here it is shown as the seers eye. you can see it sybolizes the eye and the veil. the eye is looking through or past the veil.. meaning the gift of the seers, the eye that looks through and or, into the sacred veil. just because you are a freemason doen't make you satanic! we're the founders of america satanic? no.
