Who Is The Roman Catholic Church Really Worshiping?

This study will reveal the meaning of the symbols, statues and attire used by the Pope and priests, as they reveal what the Papal Church is really worshiping.

For thousands of years Pagan religions have used symbols to show which gods they worshiped.  These symbols were declared openly in Egypt, Babylon, Rome and other cultures.

These symbols are still used today, but their true meanings are hidden.

Most people typically don’t notice the symbol or they have a positive impression of it.

The enlightened understand the meaning behind the symbols, and they use them to communicate with others.

Leaders of a Christian Church should not have anything to do with the symbols of pagan gods.

For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God.” 2 Corinthians 6:14,16

If you’re Catholic, ask yourself why the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church are using all of these symbols of pagan gods.

The Zucchetti which is worn by Catholic priests, cardinals and the Pope, represents respect, fear and submission to Cybele, the Mother Goddess of Rome.

The Cap of CybeleThe Cap of Cybele is one of the oldest and most sacred pagan religious symbols of humanity, dating back to 2,000 B.C.

The skull cap was worn by the sun priests of Egypt.

It is a thin, slightly rounded skullcap now commonly known by various titles including the Yarmulke (Jewish) and Kufi (Muslims).

The Roman Catholic Church calls it the Zucchetti.

Vatican Hill was the site of the largest ancient temple to Cybele.  Ashtoreth the goddess of fertility, sexuality and war; was known as Cybele in Rome.

The Bible warns against worshiping her, “Then the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served the Baals and the Ashtoreths.” Judges 10:6

The Bible declares “For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 11:7

Ask yourself, why do Catholic priests, Bishops and the Pope, wear the Cap of Cybele?

The Mitre hat that is worn by Catholic priests, cardinals and the Pope, represents Dagon the Babylonian fish god.

The Mitre hat that is worn by Catholic priests, cardinals and the Pope, represents Dagon the Babylonian fish god.The ancient Babylonians worshiped Dagan, the god of agriculture, plenty (food) and good fortune.

The Babylonian priests wore a headdress that represented the worship of Cybele and Dagon. It featured an open-fish mouth on the head, with the rest of the fish body forming a cloak.

In the Roman Empire, it was worn by the head priest of Cybele (the Magna Mater) or the Great Queen Mother Goddess.

Today the Catholic Cardinals, Bishops and the Pope all wear the open fish-mouth mitre, which represents the worship of Cybele and Dagon.

The Mitre hat of Dagan is always worn over the Kippa of Ashtoreth/Cybele, as you can see in the picture of Pope Francis I.

God warned the Jews not to worship the gods of Babylon, ” I will pronounce My judgments on them concerning all their wickedness, whereby they have forsaken Me and have offered sacrifices to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands.” Jeremiah 1:16

Ask yourself, why do Catholic Cardinals, Bishops and the Pope, all wear the mitre of Dagan?

The Obelisk in St. Peter’s Square represents the worship of the Sun god.

The Obelisk in St. Peter's Square represents the worship of the Son god.Obelisks were prominent in the architecture of the ancient Egyptians, who placed them at the entrance of a temple, marking it as a zone of sun worship.

They represent the Sun God Ra, the Egyptians’ greatest deity; the creator of humanity, the source of all heat and light, the being on which man was totally dependent.

The most well-known Egyptian obelisk was re-erected in 1586 A.D., in front of St. Peter’s Basilica. It is surrounded by a sun wheel, with the points lining up with the Vernal Equinox, the Summer Solstice and the Winter Solstice.

During the sunrise on the Vernal Equinox, the sun causes the obelisk to cast its shadow onto the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica, which represents the sexual union of the sun god and moon goddess.

Another Egyptian obelisk sits in front of the Pantheon of ancient Rome, which housed statues of their pagan gods. The obelisk was originally constructed by Pharaoh Ramses II for the Temple of Ra in Heliopolis. It was brought to Rome in ancient times where it was used near a shrine to the Egyptian god Isis.

The Pantheon was dedicated to pan theos, meaning “all the gods.” When it became a Roman Catholic Church, it was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and all the martyrs.

God’s 2nd commandment says, “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God.” Exodus 20:4-5

Ask yourself, why does the Catholic Church venerate pagan monuments to the Sun god?

The six-sided star is the supreme symbol of Satanic tyranny.

satanic-pope-hexagramThe hexagram has been used by people such as the pagan Babylonians, Egyptians and Assyrians, to directly or indirectly worship Satan.

Helena Blavatsky wrote that “Lucifer is the true God“, and she incorporated the hexagram in the emblem of the Theosophical Society, which she founded in 1875.

Satanists, Luciferians, astrologers and witches use it to invoke the power of demons.

The six-sided star numerically equals 666 (6 points, 6 triangles, 6-sided hexagon).

Christians pass it off as the ‘Star of David‘ but the truth is that King David never used a star, so calling it a nice sounding name hides what it really represents. King Solomon used it in witchcraft, magic and idolatrous worship to Ashtoreth and to Moloch.

Stephen accused the Jewish leaders, “And you took up the tent of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, the figures which you made” “in order to worship them.” Acts 7:43

Ask yourself, why does the Catholic Church use the Satanic six-sided star?

The eight-pointed star represents the pagan goddess Ishtar, the lightbringer.

eight-pointed-star-vaticanIn Babylonian symbolism, the goddess Ishtar is represented by an eight-pointed starburst, and she is associated with the planet of Venus.

Ishtar was the Babylonian High-Mother-Goddess, the goddess of fertility, love and war. Her cult was the most important one in ancient Babylon.

An eight-point star enclosed within a circle is the symbol for the sun god, as it’s points represent the solstices and equinoxes.

The “Babylonian star-cult is the core and the archetype of subsequent astrology.”

At the center of St. Peter’s Basilica, the Pope sits in the middle of eight 8-sided stars.

Ask yourself, why does the Catholic Church use the eight-pointed star of Ishtar?

The Maltese Cross represents Shamash, the god of the Sun and Justice.

maltese-cross-sun-godIn the image, an ancient Assyrian king is wearing a cross on his chest, just like the one seen on the Pope’s robe.

Shamash (Akkadian Šamaš “Sun”), was a native Mesopotamian deity and the sun god in the Akkadian, Assyrian and Babylonian pantheons.

Shamash was the god of justice in Babylonia and Assyria, corresponding to Sumerian Utu.

This cross was identified with a Sun god eight centuries before Christ and long before it was called the Maltese Cross by the Knights of Malta.

It’s also called the Iron Cross. Roman Catholic Adolph Hitler renewed use of the Iron Cross in 1939 and superimposed the Nazi swastika in its center.

Ask yourself, why does the Pope wear the cross of Shamash the Sun god?

Pine cones symbolize the worship of the solar god Osiris.

Pine cones represents the spiritual enlightenment of pagan gods on Pope StaffPine cones are associated with spiritual enlightenment by ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Greeks.  They represent the mysterious link between the physical and the spiritual worlds, which can be found in the human brain, in the pineal gland.

The pine cone staff is a symbol of the solar god Osiris and originated in Egypt where he was their messiah who died for his people and whose Mother, Isis, was worshiped as the Virgin Mother.

The Vatican also has the world’s largest pine cone that once decorated a fountain in ancient Rome next to a vast Temple of Isis.

At the Old St. Peter’s Basilica, it was dedicated to Attis, son and lover of Cybele.  The Catholic Church then relocated it to what’s now called the Vatican Court of the Pigna.

Ask yourself, why do Popes use pine cones which symbolize the solar god Osiris?

Revelation 13 says that Satan the dragon gives authority to the antichrist beast.

The Bible calls Satan the great dragon, who deceives the world.

So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:9

Revelation 13 tells us that antichrist beast is empowered by the dragon to deceive the world.

So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” Revelation 13:3

Revelation 13 says that Satan the dragon gives authority to the antichrist beast, yet there's many dragons at the Vatican

Ask yourself, why does the Catholic Church use images of the dragon which represents Satan?

Friend, it’s obvious that the Roman Catholic Church is worshiping other gods, which is forbidden by the Bible.

God’s 1st commandment says “You shall have no other gods before Me.” Exodus 20:3

The Roman Catholic Church and the Pope have fulfilled many Bible prophecies, as the antichrist beast of Revelation.

I have landed on this site by accident but surprised by how blinded man can be, or the effectiveness of indoctrination. it wouldn’t have been a bishop John Paul to post such defenseless defensive arguments.


wilson July 20, 2017 at 3:10 pm

in india’s kolkatta they offer sacrifice to goddess kali of human being and eat the flesh and drink the blood something similar to catholic communion

I found this website quite by accident.

I should point out that the correct word is zucchetto. Zucchetti is the plural form of the word.

The Cap of Cybele can be seen here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrygian_cap. From what I can tell, it doesn’t in any way resemble the zucchetto worn by Catholic priests, but perhaps you have more information that would show this. I’d be delighted to see it.

BTW, the temple you reference was located on the Aventine Hill, one of the seven hills on which the city of Rome was built. However, the Vatican was not located in the city or on any of the seven hills, but across the Tiber. You may want to look into that.

It wasn’t until circa 13th century that the zucchetto became customary in usage. Version of it could have been used earlier. But maybe, just a thought, it simply served the purpose of keeping the head warm? It was common for clergy to have the tonsure. It might be that priests wore the zucchetto to keep warm in the winter, and protect the head from the sun in the summer. Just a thought…

Having said all that, I respect you quote of Corinthians. I’ll have to think about that one…

Right on David! Thank you for your deeply-rooted understanding and love for our true God, Lord and Savior and for your strong rebuttal against the deceptions and lies being perpetuated by the demonic Roman Catholic Church. Their pagan teachings camouflaged in Christian words has brought thousands of people to hell without ever knowing the TRUTH IN THE WORD OF GOD. I was a Roman Catholic for 56 years when I came to know the Lord Jesus. I was deep in oriental religion and philosophy and i believe the Lord literally pulled me from the mire of my unbelief and cleansed me with His precious blood. Now at 83, my life’s work if all for the gory of God! I publish articles and tracts for free distribution to the lost which are numerous here in the Philippines.Thank you for you encourage me to be even bolder now as I combat also Mormonism and Iglesia in Cristo in addition to the RCC. Please share with me what I can use to help these deceived people to the light of the truth. God bless you David.


David June 28, 2017 at 3:39 pm

Praise our Father that He drew you out of the pagan Roman Catholic Church and oriental religion Monina!!! You are welcome to use any of the content on this website, to help people see the light of truth. May the Father bless you richly! David

I had to laugh when I read this. Another ignorant person, who probably hates the Catholic Church, posting mislead information to the public, spreading confusion and hate. The star of Satan is a well know Jewish symbol of the Star of David. As bishop I wear a Zucchetti, so do almost religious leader of all kinds of Church wear some kind of religious hat, but you pick out the Catholic pope in your hate message. The picture you posted as Babylonian priests is not a priest but a king, but again you point out the pope in your hate message. In the Old Testament God chosen people had Shepard staffs (Crosier), Church Elders had Shepard staff as a symbol of authority, and again you pick out the pope in your illustration, you must really hate the Pope and the Church. I feel sorry for you, because you could have applied your energy in a non-hateful ways such as help come up with new idea on how to feed the homeless and help them. But you choice to hate the Pope. I pray the Holy Spirit touches your heart and remove all hate from you nature.


David June 3, 2017 at 2:38 am

Your comment makes me sad John Paul. Of course you can’t see the truth, you are part of the harlot church, you’ve been programmed with the teachings of Rome, most of which are not Scriptural.

David never had a star. His father Solomon, who fell away into pagan god worship, used that star, the star of Remphan. It’s a HEXagram, which is used to invoke the powers of Satan.

Scripture proclaims that you should not cover your head when praying, so it is you who are wrong about your Zucchetti. I pick out the Pope, because that’s the context of this website.

Speaking of, the Pope has fulfilled Bible prophecy as the Little Horn of Daniel 7, the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation.

And the Roman Catholic Church fulfills Bible prophecy as the harlot church of Revelation 17, who is dressed in purple and scarlet, the colors of Bishops and Cardinals; and has a golden cup in her hand.

Teach the truth about prophecy fulfillment does not mean that I hate anyone. The truth is that I love Catholics and pray that they will find Scriptural truth, so that they are saved by faith in Messiah’s atoning work, not by Mary or the sacraments.

Antichrist does not just mean ‘against Christ’, it also means ‘in place of Christ’; and the title of the Pope is the ‘Vicar of Christ’. The Pope has proclaimed to be Jesus Christ in the flesh, and to be God.

I pray that the Spirit touches your heart and removes your programming, so that you can see the truth, and come out of the harlot church.

Believers for a thousand years have been testifying against the antichrist Popes. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/historic-witnesses-against-the-antichrist-beast-the-popes-of-rome/

Many of you say you are Christians meaning you follow Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church is based off of the teachings and never once goes against the teachings of Christ, so if you say the Catholic Church is demonic then you are saying Jesus was demonic


David May 9, 2017 at 6:32 pm

That is a false association Johnny! Popes and priests proclaim to forgive sins, but it is only Messiah who can do that. Popes and priests proclaim to provide salvation, but salvation is only found through Messiah. Much of what Popes and priests proclaim is contrary to Scripture, thus it is contrary to Messiah, it is anti-Messiah. http://romancatholicbeliefs.org/


John Paul June 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm

Go to this Website and educate yourself.


David June 3, 2017 at 4:10 am

The Understanding Catholics explanations are sad. Regarding graven images, it declares not to make of an image of anything that is in the heavens, in the earth, or in the water. Those three places include every place on this earth.

The proper context of calling someone ‘father’ was if they were acting as a teacher, like the scribes and Pharisees were doing; so that applies to Catholic priests and the Pope.

The office of the papacy fulfills Bible prophecy as the antichrist, against Christ, beast; so we know that they or their priests in their harlot church cannot forgive sins.

It claims that Catholics don’t pray to Mary, but Pope Francis pray to her, and he tells Catholics to pray to her. There are many pictures of him praying to her. She is a blessed woman to be sure, but she is dead, and she won’t be resurrected until Messiah returns.

Regarding the Eucharist, Messiah taught His disciples to remember Him with the bread and the wine, on Passover, on the day that He died as the Passover Lamb. He did not say to do it every day.

Of course, Catholics observe the pagan based Easter and Christmas, which are not Scriptural. Messiah was born in the fall, during the Feast of Tabernacles, as He came to dwell among us. 12/25 is the birthday of the pagan sun god, so it is the last day that should have been selected for His birthday

Easter is based on the fertility goddess Ishtar; all of which is based on the Babylonian Mystery Religion; thus the reason the harlot Catholic Church is called ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great’; because it pagan god worship (primarily the sun god, Tammuz) with a veneer of the true Scriptural faith.

As for the Protestants starting churches, that was needed because the Popes of Rome had relentlessly sought to eliminate the Two Witnesses against it; the Scriptures and the Saints.

Popes banned and burned the Scriptures, and they persecuted and killed the true saints.

So when the Two Witnesses were brought back to life after Martin Luther posted in 95 Thesis in 1517 A.D., millions of people heard the true Gospel and were saved by faith in Messiah’s atoning work, not the sacraments. http://revelationtimelinedecoded.com/the-two-witnesses-of-revelation-11/

I pray that the Spirit moves in your heart, because you are greatly deceived.


Shawn D Melder June 23, 2017 at 7:04 am

I have eyes,and the Holy spirit.
I can’t even begin to count the lies.
A spade is just that,a spade.
And Satan is murder and a lier,ever thing g he says is a lie, for there is no truth in him.

Only thing left to say is repent. If you serve the lier then GET BEHIND ME! Because you know nothing of my Father’s plans. Alpha and Omega! The great I AM !


Julie June 29, 2017 at 10:12 pm

Your alk right abiut the closeness to paganism and the total immersion in its origens in pagen wirship all related to the catholic church but your all wrong and just as blind in yojr belief of tbe holy spirit the trinity anr the belief in a triune god this has as much to do with pagen worship as all the rest.the son nesus is who we put faith in through his ransom sacrifice which is for forgiveness of our sins but this is only possibl throug jehovah d who gave his only begtten son in death for this purpose and his holy spirit is a force like a pwer he used tocreate everything even his son jesus


Cepho D Chaplin April 24, 2017 at 5:33 am

I think we must not discard the above facts but rather dig deep within the Roman Catholicism historical books and then safely pass your conclussion with no hesitation


Kat June 26, 2017 at 3:38 pm

I agree with that statement. It’s hard to face something that contradicts everything you have been taught. The worst thing you could do however is dismiss it without at least doing your own research and thus coming to your own conclusions. I would also pray that God reveals the truth to you and does not allow you to be led astray.
