Off With His Head
And you will discover the body of Jupiter--literally!
(The following quotes are taken from the Secrets of Romanism pgs. 14-16)
The pagans knew it when the "Christians" removed the head of their god and replaced it with Peter's. What a compromise! And what a symbolism! The body of the church is paganism while the head pretends to be Christian.
All that kissing and toe rubbing is on Jupiter! I'd be offended to find that out if I were a Roman Catholic! It would make a difference to me!
"The very same piece of brass which the old Romans worshipped as Jupiter, with a new head on its shoulders--like an old friend with a new face--is now, in St. Peter's Church of Rome, adored with equal devotion by the modern Roman Catholics. . . ."
And the early church fathers didn't stop there.
"And, as if they wished to make the resemblance as perfect as possible, they have, in imitation of his pagan prototype, surrounded the (supposed) tomb of the apostle with a hundred ever-burning lights as the 'Centum aras posuit, vigilemque sacraverat ignem' (He erected a hundred altars, and consecrated the ever-burning fire)."
I've never been to Rome, but apparently, from the above statements, the (purported) tomb of Peter is surrounded with 100 burning lamps, eternal flames, copied from pagan Rome's veneration of Jupiter's tomb. In the "light" of this, it is understandable why the 1983 Canon Law 400 requires the Bishops to worship "venerate" the tomb of Peter, and also Paul.
On the Roman Catholic "sacred heart" symbol of the crucified heart of Jesus (above left), we see an eternal flame of paganism burning. These ever-burning lights are symbolic of the Eternal Flame from pagan fire worship. Former U.S. President Roman Catholic John Kennedy has an eternal flame burning over his burial site... It's been videotaped in documentaries of his assassination.
The Structure of Pagan
vs. Modern Roman Catholicism
" The primacy of the Bishop of Rome, established in the pre-Constantine period, was emphasized and magnified after 313 (Edict of Milan) . . . . The organization of the (Roman) church was thus put on the same divine basis as the revelation of Christianity. This idea once accepted led inevitably to the medieval papacy.
'Romanism is simply the old Roman paganism revived under Christian names. Romanism and paganism bear to each other the most exact and extraordinary resemblance.
Had paganism its temples and altars, its pictures and images? So has popery.
Had paganism its use of holy water and its burning incense? So has popery.
Had paganism its tonsured priests, presided over by a pontifex maximus, or sovereign pontiff? So has popery.
Had paganism its claim of sacerdotal infallibility? So has popery.
Had paganism its adoration of a visible representative of deity carried on men's shoulders? So has popery.
Had paganism its ceremony of kissing the feet of the sovereign pontiff? So has popery.
Had paganism its college of pontiffs? So has popery, in the college of Cardinals.
Had paganism its adoration of idols, its worship of the queen of heaven, its votive offerings? So has popery.
Had paganism its rural shrines and processions? So has popery.
Had paganism its pretended miracles, its speaking images, and weeping and bleeding images? So has popery.
Had paganism its fictitious saints? So has popery.
Had paganism its canonization of saints, as in the deification of the dead Caesars? So has popery.
Had paganism its idolatrous calendar and numerous festivals? So has popery.
Had paganism its enforced celibacy, its mystic signs, its worship of relics? So has popery.
Had paganism its cruel persecution of those who opposed idolatry? So has popery.
Was paganism satanically inspired? So is popery.'
'God overthrew paganism;
Satan revived it under Christian names;
but God shall destroy it, and sweep its hateful presence from the earth.'
(From Romanism and Reformation, H. Grattan Guinness)
"God Shall Destroy Paganism which is centered in Roman Catholicism"
[This will be the fulfillment of the destruction of the image in King Nebuchadnezzar's dream. ]
" 'In the transition from pagan to papal Rome much of the old material was worked up.
The heathen temples became Roman churches.
The altars of the gods became altars of the saints.
The curtains, incense, tapers, votive tablets remained the same.
The aquarinarium was still the vessel for holy water
St. Peter stood at the gate, instead of Cardea;
St. Roque or St. Sebastian in the bedroom, instead of the Phrygian Penates.
St. Nicholas was the sign of the vessel, instead of Castor and Pollux.
The Matte Deum became the Madonna.
Alms pro Matte Deum became alms for the Madonna.
The Festival of the Matte Deum, the Festival of the Madonna.
The Lugentes Campi, or dismal regions, became purgatory.
The offerings to the Manes were masses for the dead.
The name purgatorium was taken from the pagan feast of purification called 'Sacrum Purgatorium.'
The Feast of the Purification of Mary replaced the Feast of the Lupercalia (in honor of Pan).
The Feast of Rogations replaced the Feast of the Ambarvalia (in honor of Ceres).
Litanies and processions invoking Christ replaced those to Jupiter. ' " W. S. Blunt.
"What are nuns with their vows of celibacy, but a new edition of the Vestal Virgins?
The monachism [monastery life] was, in its origin, a purely pagan institution, common to the religions of India, Tibet, and Syria.
The daily sacrifice of the mass is copied from the victim-hostia of the heathen ritual."
The Triple Crown
"The Pope himself with the triple crown on his head replaced the old Cerberus with his three heads, who keeps guard as the custos of Tartarus and Elysium.
The very same piece of brass which the old Romans worshipped as Jupiter, with a new head on its shoulders-like an old friend with a 'new face-is now, in St. Peter's Church of Rome, adored with equal devotion by the modem Roman Catholics. (photo above left)
And, as if they wished to make the resemblance as perfect as possible, they have, in imitation of his pagan prototype, surrounded the (supposed) tomb of the apostle with a hundred ever-burning lights as the 'Centum aras posuit, vigilemque sacraverat ignem' (He erected a hundred altars, and consecrated the ever-burning fire).'

(Worship before the burning lamps in the Vatican)
And the Roman church calls itself the only one, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic church, whereas it is pagan to the core.
The Right Rev. Monsignor Canon John Vaughan, who claims "that a Protestant who is saved is saved not in so far as he is a Protestant, but simply in so far as he is a Catholic," does not need an answer but a Bible where he can find out that salvation does not depend on this or that church but only on our faith and acceptance of Jesus as our personal Saviour."
