I keep saying they are going to openly worship the ancient Gods, the Demon worship will become more and more aceptable and they will begin sacrafice to them, maybe even someday human again.




ROME, November 6, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A reconstruction of a pagan idol who demanded child sacrifice was stationed at the entrance of Rome’s Colosseum as part of a secular historical exhibition.

The presence of the idol raised particular concern among Catholics, as it was erected nine days before the Amazon Synod and the subsequent scandal over the veneration of the Pachamama idol at the Vatican.

The statue of Moloch, worshipped by both the Canaanites and the Phoenicians, is part of an exhibit dedicated to Ancient Rome’s once-great rival, the city of Carthage. The large-scale exhibition, titled Carthago: The immortal myth, runs until March 29, 2020.

As it mentions they are openly worshiping idols at the vatican.



October 30, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Three cardinals and three bishops have separately voiced opposition to paganism in Church ceremonies in the Vatican surrounding the Amazon Synod, including the Oct. 4 pagan ceremony in the Vatican Gardens where people bowed down and worshiped the Pachamama idol as Pope Francis and other top-ranking prelates looked on.

Catholics around the world were indignant to not only see the pagan statues present in various ceremonies, but to see Pope Francis actually bless one of them during the Vatican Gardens ceremony. He was also present when the Pachamama statue was carried into the synod hall, at the beginning of the Amazon Synod, accompanied again with pagan rituals. Paulo Suess, one of the key authors of the Amazon Synod's working document, commented on this ceremony, saying “so what. Even if it would have been a pagan rite, then it is nevertheless a pagan worship of God.”

Yes many will be very happy with this in fact, the majority. I bet you will find many future chances to greet the new, old gods.

Yeah, most people can appreciate history and art without interjecting religious wackadoodlery into the mix.

You think putting a statue up for history makes people worship it? If that was the case, I’d be every religion ever made.

Pretty cool statute though. Kind of reminds me of Stargate (films or TV show. Take your pick).

Those old religions were pretty cool. Lots of gods who were fairly snazzy looking. Freaky rituals, wild sex orgies. It’s all good. Most new religions are positively boring in comparison.

Three of them have the exact same God. And he’s just some old guy with a beard.

Since the 19th century, there has been an increasing interest in ancient pre-Christian European religions such as ancient Greek, Germanic, Celtic, and Slavic paganism. This stems from an increasing interest in spirituality in Europe, specifically a spirituality in touch with European heritage and ethnic roots in a similar manner to indigenous religions of Native Americans and Aboriginal Australians.

Ancient and Modern Combine
Among modern Pagans, there are two approaches to reviving pagan practices. One is eclecticism or syncretism, in which elements of historical ethnic religions such as the ancient Norse religion are combined with modern movements such as Wicca, Theosophy or other New Age philosophies. This is largely based on romantic views of these ancient religions which emerged in the 19th century which may or may not be historically accurate.

The Fearsome Wicker Man: An Eerie Way Druids Committed Human Sacrifice




According to a number of classical authors, the druids partook in human sacrifice, though these authors usually did not specify the way these sacrifices were carried out. Nevertheless, references to a form of druid human sacrifice which utilized the ‘wicker man’ can be found in two classical sources.



Denmark too completed a pagan temple dedicated to Odin for the first time in a millennium in 2016.

Well you have your path so that is your choice, no one arguing this is of interest to people who follow Jesus.




Many American “are no longer seeking solace for their souls in the arms of Christianity… today’s most popular forms of spirituality are those associated with the occult, neopaganism and witchcraft” (7).

In the last several decades, Wicca and neopaganism have gained surprising influence in nominally “Christian” churches, where one might not normally expect to find workshops on astrology, tarot card reading, channelling and goddess worship. “Some witches and neopagans are now senior pastors of large denominational churches. It is an event unprecedented in the history of Christendom.” (8).

Wicca and neopaganism are also surging in popularity on some college campuses, even those associated with “Christian” denominations. One professor, a self-proclaimed lesbian feminist witch, “is spearheading a campaign to turn Christianity into nothing less than a neopagan, goddess-worshipping religion”. (9)

And yet everyone supposed to have a common ancestor named Abraham that was about sacrifice his own child, to a God that has no image? Just so he could make 100 more an maybe try to sacrifice them too.

What about the YMCA, it fun when it not fun to pray to YHWH!?

That’s a lazy understanding of Abraham, superficial and ignorant
Also, Abraham was the father of the Hebrews not everyone as you suggest

As for the statue, it’s a rock, it has no real intrinsic value other than what people place on it or as a representation of history

Maybe they should place them out the front of abortion clinics, most people don’t care about children now anyway
The statue is really meaningless

Abraham was called the “father of many nations.”

By YHVH Himself.

Who is also referred to in the Bible as El, who was the chief deity of the Canaanite pantheon of which Moloch was part.

YHVH only said you shall have no other gods BEFORE ME.

Well, that is, if you believe the myths stories.

So the OP is going full retard and insisting museum exhibit = worship. Nice, great way to instill mass ignorance through weak-knee stupidity, it's like a self-feeding loop of morons there.

However, if people feel the desire to worshipthe true gods of any given region outside the Middle East cesspit, more power to 'em. Long live Odin, Valhalla awaits!

Father of many nations or
common ancestor
I see a significant difference in the two descriptions, one being physical and one being spiritual but anyway, just a difference of opinions

Peterson on Isaac, well worth understanding the depth of the story
I don’t agree completely with the interpretation but at least it’s been thought through a little deeper than superficially
