Now, I’ve known for quite some time that it’s “originally” not Satanic at all, but the symbol of St. Peter, who was crucified upside down.
But today I heard this:
The inverted cross is a very ancient symbol, YES, predating Christianity and its Jewish root by thousands of years. Its true…
There is no meaning to it, it is just the symbol of St.Peter, as it looks opposite to traditional cross people are associating it with Anti Christ or Anti Christanity.
No symbol has a “true meaning.” Symbols represent what we choose to have their represent.
I don’t know much about chakras, so I’m not even going to comment on symbols that might or might be associated with them. However, it’s highly unlikely that the church would have even been familiar with the concept when they started using St. Peter’s Cross. IT is completely plausible that a symbol as simple as the one in question would develop multiple meanings in different areas of the world independently of one another.
There is no such thing as pagan Satanism.
Christianity is 2000 years old. That is not a new religion. There are certainly religions older than that, but many have died out, and many, many more have developed since then.
The upside down cross has only been associated with Satanism very recently. if you suggested that to a Christian 500 or 1000 or 1500 years ago they would have no idea what you were talking about. Likewise, organized Satanism is also very, very new.
Satan emerged from the Jewish scriptures about 3000 years ago, where he was the adversary *sent* by God to tempt people to abandon God. He was a test of faith. The idea of him being evil and rebelling against God is a Christian concept.
Upside Down Meaning
It may be that the upside down cross has this meaning for some, but it is also important to remember that just because Joe Dokes sees the cross in this way, that means nothing to YOU. If you don’t see the upside down cross that way, then who cares what it might mean?
After all, to some, yes it does indeed symbolize the demonic desire to negate everything good that Jesus represents. That doesn’t mean it has to mean that for YOU.
For some, the upside down cross explicitly refers to Peter.
The swastika has been used in designs in native weaving for centuries, and it is a universal good luck sign. Some German extremists hijacked the swastika in the 1930s and 40s, and now that is where it derives its meaning. However, lots of folks around the globe have never allowed that to effect the way they deal with their symbols,a nd to them, the swastika is a good luck sign, just as it always has been.
There’s pretty much no simple geometrical form, lending itself to symbolic interpretation, that hasn’t been used, over and over, by various groups of people, for thousands of years, ever since people started playing around with symbols in the first place.
The upside down cross doesn’t “really” mean anything. It’s been used here lately, the last thousand some odd years, by the catholic church, because of how they killed that Peter fellow, and yes no doubt other people have used it too, for whatever.
It means whatever the guy who drew it intended it to mean.
Chakras (and their inverted cross) are from a different and separate theology to Christianity and the inverted Crucifixion of Peter. They developed separately thousands of mile apart with no contact.
“NEW religion” In what way is a 2000 year old religion new?
Pagan Satanism That is actually far younger than Christianity.
Edit ioerr- The catholic Church did not kill Peter the Romans did.
It is a satanic Symbol as it represents the opposite and reverse and if you read the Satanic Bible the Satanic philosophy is the opposite and reversed of ALL spiritual religions. I read the book and I know Satanists
It is Satanic. A co-worker wore it at work and all of the christians and atheists all shouted SATANIST! They did not shout jew or christian lol what matters is what a symbol means to every one now, not in the past as all things change in time
Yes, the cross is a pagan symbol that predates both Christianity & Jewism:
“…Ancient Egyptians were not the only ones that used the cross as a sacred religious symbol. It has been popular in pagan religions all over the world. Regarding this, The Encyclopædia Britannica, 11th Edition, Volume 7, says:
“Various objects, dating from periods long anterior to the Christian era, have been found, marked with crosses of different designs, in almost every part of the old world. India, Syria, Persia and Egypt have all yielded numberless examples, while numerous instances, dating from the later Stone Age to Christian times, have been found in nearly every part of Europe. The use of the cross as a religious symbol in pre-Christian times, and among non-Christian peoples, may probably be regarded as almost universal, and in very many cases it was connected with some form of nature worship.”
“It was used as a religious symbol in the form of a swastika in India and China some ten centuries before the Christian era. In the South Pacific the cross appears on the ancient statues of Easter Island and on the sacred stones of eastern New Guinea. In New Zealand greenstone crosses were worn by the pagan Maoris. Crosses were also used by the early inhabitants of New Mexico, for they have been found in the shell mounds there. They are also present among the pictographs of the Dakotas.
“Regarding the use of the cross among the early people of Mexico,
The Standard Dictionary of Folklore, Mythology and Legend says:
“Early explorers of Mexico were astonished to find that there the cross had an unquestionable religious significance. The Mexican cross carried by the Aztec goddess of the rains is now thought to have been associated with the sun or wind.”
“This linking of the cross with sun worship is not surprising, as that was what the Chaldeans of Mesopotamia did, and it was from there that mankind was dispersed to all parts of the earth after the great Flood. Their god Tammuz was associated with the sun, and, according to Alexander Hislop, “the mystic Tau of the Chaldeans and Egyptians” was “the initial of the name of Tammuz.” Although Tammuz was given different names by other peoples his symbol, the tau cross, continued in general use. Since Constantine was a pagan Roman, among whom the cross was a religious symbol, it is significant that he had a vision of this symbol in the sky beneath the sun.
“The cross was often associated in ancient times with phallicism, or sex worship. This was inevitable since it was considered to be a symbol of life. The crux ansata, a cross with a circle on top, represented the active power of generation and the passive power of production. This may be the reason that a female figure excavated from the ruins of Troy had a cross on its pubic region. INVERTED TAU CROSSES have been used as phallic symbols in Greece, Rome and Japan.
“In pagan Rome the cross was marked on the official garments of the priests and was worn suspended from a necklace by its vestal virgins. In Assyria it was worn as a pendant by Assyrian kings. Archaeologist A. H. Layard said it was found on Assyrian sculptures in Khorsabad, on Assyrian cylinders and on ivories from Nimrud. All were in use long before the coming of Christ.
“The caduceus, a winged staff entwined with serpents, was actually a cross whose crossbar had been replaced with wings. It was carried by the god Mercury as well as several other gods. This associating of a serpent with the cross was also done by the Egyptians.
“The famous Druids of Britain looked upon the cross as a sacred religious symbol.
Regarding their use of it the book Indian Antiquities says:
“The Druids in their groves were accustomed to select the most stately and beautiful tree as an emblem of the Deity they adored, and having cut the side branches, they affixed two of the largest of them to the highest part of the trunk, in such a manner that those branches extended on each side like the arms of a man, and, together with the body, presented the appearance of a huge cross, and on the bark, in several places, was also inscribed the letter Thau.”
“Druidic reverence for the cross is also shown by the fact that they laid out some of their temples in the form of a cross. The Druid temple at Classerniss on the Island of Lewis in Scotland was built in this form as well as the Druidical grotto at New Grange in Ireland. In India there are some ancient Hindu temples built in the same form. An outstanding example is the very old cave temple of Elephanta near Bombay. It was excavated from solid rock and shaped like a cross. . . .” #
Anyone who thinks that Almighty God Jehovah would allow his son to be hung on such an abominable apparatus doesn’t have a clue about God’s power or righteousness!
all of that is people’s BS now everything that is upside down is evil example: 999 666
