TITLE: PAGANS LOVE PINE CONES AND USE THEM IN THEIR ART
Subtitle: Pagans revere the Evergreen because it symbolizes Eternal Life to them. They further revere the "fruit" of the Evergreen, the Pine Cone. We will study widespread use of the pine cone in Pagan groups and in Roman Catholicism!
Pagans have always coveted eternal life, and have sought it by worshipping and revering many objects they find in Nature. Of course, this type of worship is the Biblical definition of what a Pagan is. Listen: "Who [unrighteous men] changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen." [Romans 1:25]
As we move into the End of the Age, we discover that Paganism is really on the increase. In fact, it is highly possible that this 20th Century may represent the high water mark for Paganism. We would expect this might be the case, as the Bible foretells that Antichrist will be a Pagan generally and a Satanist specifically. [Daniel 8:23-25]
Since the person behind Paganism of all types and ages is Satan, we should not be too surprised to discover that many of the practices of Paganism/Satanism are common to many different Pagan groups throughout the world and throughout history. For example, most Pagans are vegetarians either totally or in part [Read NEWS1185 and NEWS1004 for full details].
One of the common points of Pagan worship is their common symbol for eternal life, the Evergreen, both bush and tree. Further, the Pine Cone is revered because it is the "fruit" or the result of the Evergreen. Since all people of all ages wish to live forever, the Evergreen and Pine Cone have been powerful, and ancient, symbols of Eternal Life.
Let us now examine the various Pagan groups that have utilized the Pine Cone in their ceremonies, their rituals, and their art. Once you study this list, you will be in for a great surprise in that the Roman Catholic Church utilizes the Pine Cone, just as any good Pagan religion would do! This fact is further firm evidence that Roman Catholicism is Pagan, not Christian. In fact, we would say that Roman Catholicism is counterfeit Christianity, with Paganism as its beating heart.
Pine cones are common in Roman Catholic architecture and sacred
"Roman Cult -- The bronze hand, to the left, dates from the late Roman Empire, when all forms of divination from scrying to astrology, flourished. The hand bears the symbols, such as a cockerel's head and a pine cone, of the Roman mystery cult of Dionysus. Worshippers of Dionysus would work themselves into a frenzy, in which they might see visions of the future."
["Mind & Magic", by Francis X. King, Crescent, Great Britain, 1991, page 150] Notice the Pine Cone on the thumb of this hand. I find it very interesting that the Pine Cone is closely associated with this particular cult, whose emphasis was on divination, sex orgies, and fortune telling.
This picture is of a Mexican god holding a pine cone and fir tree, symbols of rebirth and the sun.
This pine cone staff is a symbol of the solar god Osiris, Egyptian Museum, Turino, Italy. Osiris originated in Egypt, where he was their Messiah, who died for the good of his people, and whose Mother, Isis, was worshipped as the Virgin Mother. Osiris was the Egyptian counterfeit of Jesus Christ!
This picture is of the Assyrian winged god with a pine cone, representing power of regeneration. Traceable to Tammuz of Babylon. Most Paganism in history is traceable directly back to Tammuz of Babylon. His mother, Semiramis, was the first Virgin Mother in world history, predating the birth of Jesus Christ by over a thousand years. Did you know that the Roman Catholic practice of making the Sign of the Cross originated in Babylon as people paid homage to their Messiah, Tammuz, who "died for the good of his people". People would constantly publicly demonstrate their love and adoration for Tammuz by making the sign of the "T", or "t". Isn't this a clever move by Satan? He knew that Jesus Christ would die on a cross that could be thought of as a "t". Therefore, Satan was able to transfer the sign of the "t" for Tammuz directly into the Roman Catholic Church, as people thought they making the sign of the Christian cross. Tammuz was the Babylonian counterfeit of Jesus Christ.
This is Bacchus the god of drunkenness with a Pine Cone staff. Pagans love to drink prodigiously and revel in getting drunk. Therefore, we should not be too surprised to learn that Bacchus is celebrated as looking forward to eternal life even as he is busily getting, and staying, drunk. Have you noticed that the Roman Catholic Church has been battling drunkenness and addiction in both their priests and their adherents. Further, Catholic countries like Ireland, France, and Italy have always been known for their love, and consumption, of alcohol.
This is Dionysus, the Greek god, carrying a pine cone staff as a fertility symbol. Children are always looked upon as extending the life of the human species. Therefore, it is predictable that the Pine Cone should be linked to the new life of the conception of children.
This is the pope's staff with a pine cone, the ultimate pagan symbol! Since the ultimate goal of religion is the securing of eternal life, we should not be surprised that the Pope should be carrying the ultimate Pagan symbol of eternal life.
This is a picture of candles used in Catholic masses. This is typical in Roman Catholic services and ornaments.

Pine Cones are common in Roman Catholic architecture and sacred decorations.
By now, you should be persuaded that Roman Catholicism utilizes the Pine Cone just as many Pagan religions in history have done. We are now accumulating many instances where Catholicism has incorporated many, many elements of Pagan practices within their doctrines, rituals, art and architecture. We have noted the following other Pagan practices within Catholicism.
RC100 Bent Crucifix -- We show that Pope Paul VI began the practice of using a Bent Crucifix during his many ceremonies, rather than the traditional Catholic Crucifix depicting a straight cross and full figure of Jesus Christ. This Bent Crucifix was invented in the 6th Century by Satanists to be their symbol of Antichrist. So the pertinent question is, "Why is the Most Holy Pope, John Paul II, continuing to use this Bent Crucifix? Why is he holding up before his faithful a symbol of Antichrist"?
RC109 Queen of Heaven -- The Virgin Mary is known as the Queen of Heaven in Roman Catholic doctrine, literature, and art. Yet, God physically destroyed Israel in the Old Testament because they were worshipping the "Queen of Heaven", who just so happened to be Semiramis, the Virgin Mother of Babylonian Satanic Mysteries. The Divine Son was Tammuz.
RC111, RC111a, RC111b -- Purgatory is shown to be a Pagan invention, and not Biblical in any way, shape, or form. The Pagans invented Purgatory as a means to make money by charging the living for prayers to get their loved ones out of this "temporary" place of torment as quickly as possible!
RC113, Mass Shown To Be Un-Biblical -- We demonstrate that, not only is the practice of the Mass not provided by Scripture, but is also forbidden in Scripture! In fact, the Mass may be the most despicable of all Catholic rituals, in the eyes of God.
RC115, Rosary -- We show that Jesus Christ forbade praying a prayer like the Rosary demands. Further, we demonstrate that the Rosary originated in the Babylonian Satanic Mysteries.
RC122, Priest A Witch -- We share with you the revelations made by a former Black Magick witch that the priest fulfills the same role in Catholic services as a witch fulfills in a coven ceremony.
RC123, Auricular Confession -- We demonstrate that the Bible never tells anyone to confess their sins to any other person than Jesus Christ. Further, we show that Auricular Confession was invented in the Babylonian Satanic Mysteries.
If you are Roman Catholic, you can know the spiritual freedom once you reject the falsity of Catholic doctrine, and embrace the simple Biblical truth! Won't you turn from images to the true Jesus Christ today? Won't you turn from Pagan teachings that enslave you and terrify you, to the true teachings that will liberate you from your bondage of sin and of fear of Judgment?
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that nothing will not hurt you spiritually. You will also know the greatest heart peace that the greatest God can give to one of His own children.
