The Philistines cut the head of dead King Saul, and kept his skull hanging in the temple of Dagon. The mourning Jews buried the rest of his bones.
I have for a long time claimed that the adoration of corpses, skulls and bones is wicked and tasteless. In particular in the Roman Catholic Church, who by large segments of the World is branded as ‘Christianity”
For the last days, I have been lead to read the book “First Chronicles”. The battles Israel was fighting for survival in ancient times, is very similar to the ongoing battles.
Like in ancient times of the Philistines, their successors pose the greatest threats to Israel today.
We can learn something form the tragic end of King Saul. One of the lessons is the display of his cut of head, or skull, in the pagan Temple of Dagon.
No one within Christianity would permit such a wicked and awful display in our congregations. But the Roman Catholics consider exhumed bodies to be “holy”. Corpses of various kind has been removed from the grave, their head cut off, and the cleansed skulls put up for veneration and adoration.
Just like in the pagan temple of Dagon.
1 Chronicles 10:8-11
The next day, when the Philistines came to strip the dead, they found Saul and his sons fallen on Mount Gilboa. They stripped him and took his head and his armor, and sent messengers throughout the land of the Philistines to proclaim the news among their idols and their people.
They put his armor in the temple of their gods and hung up his head in the temple of Dagon.
When all the inhabitants of Jabesh Gilead heard of everything the Philistines had done to Saul, all their valiant men went and took the bodies of Saul and his sons and brought them to Jabesh. Then they buried their bones under the great tree in Jabesh, and they fasted seven days.
I can not display the pictures of thousands of skulls, that are displayed in the Vatican approved copies of the Temple of Dagon. But I have chosen some of my “favorites”:
I am sure the Roman Catholic Church has a place for the skull of King Saul too.
It is interesting that while the Roman Catholics and the Philistines are criminal grave looters, the Jews at lest buried the bones of their fallen “saint” and King.
The Philistines and the Roman Catholics have a lot in common. They both are the enemies of God of the Bible and the Zionist state of Israel.
Since the Temple of Dagon existed 2.500 B.C, there is very few reliable drawings of this temple and a “god” named Dagon. But since the Philistines were intruders from the island of Crete and fishermen, many historians believe Dagon was the “fish god”.Here are some illustrations:
Rome is the spiritual mysterious Babylon that is serving the prince of the present World. This will not be questioned by those who know Church history and the Bible.
If you love Jesus the Messiah” Never, ever recognize this corrupt and wicked religious movement as a part of Christianity.

I agree with you on the disgusting nature of worshiping dead things.
Only Mystery Babylon is Jerusalem (shocking to consider, I know) I really liked Chris Whites in depth teaching on Mystery Babylon, I had already learned this in my own bible studies, but I went nowhere near as thorough , you can watch it on youtube.
Here is the link to the first part:
You will be shocked at the biblical accuracy of his study and it fits with the article you were posting about the Vatican trying to get it’s hand son Jerusalem. The anti Christ will rule the nations from Jerusalem. Interesting how it all comes together.
I have written some few articles about the anti-Christs plans to take over the Old City of Jerusalem.
Just want to mention that the hebrew word Dag means fish …
Yes. The “fish god”. So the pagans should take the skull of a fish up on their altars, and keep it for adoration and veneration. A big cod can have a head as big as a human.
This corrupt religious practice is disgusting, RCC is fully idoltary who claim that by displaying skulls of so Called Catholic saints will make them please God of the bible
Yeah right. You say “Shalom” and then go on to make an argument against the Catholic faith. I would say that arguments aren’t very peace-like. Anyways,
1.For starters, we do not commit idolatry with relics. We remember the life of the holy person who’s relic we are praying in front of, and pray to the holy person that we become more like them.
2.When do we say that relics please God?!?! As I said above they are reminders to pray and become more like them (because we must try to be like Jesus, and the holy person might have been closer to that goal than we).
3. Just a note, a relic is not always a head. It can be any part of the body, even something that came in contact with the body.
4. The whole practice of having relics is not just ‘cutting of heads and worshiping them’. Sometimes when people have come in contact of a holy person they have had a miracle worked on them. Surely this is a sign that relics are just.
the Bible says, ” this people serve me with their lips, but their heart is far from me, because they follow the tradition of man, rather than the commandment of GOD ” Those who become saints are those people who become victorious in keeping the commandments of GOD. When JESUS will bring us to heaven we become saints, coz HE cleans us from our filthiness. It is only JESUS who can pronounce us as saints, if we surpass all trials and temptation in this world when HE return, NOT ANY HUMAN BEING or anybody can declare anybody as saint, because , he is not GOD, or if he wants also to be a god. JESUS is the only mediator between GOD and man, Read ephesians 5: 3
Actually, God DOES declare saints. He sometimes tells us about a person being a saint by working miracles in they’re name. Once recognized, we check if the miracle is possible by science. If not we wait and see if there is another miracle when we pray to that person. If there is, we decide that God is giving us a hint that that person is a saint.
People become “saints” only by obeying Jesus Christ and following him and him only, not men, their traditions, or belonging to so-called religious organizations set up in his name.
As far as miracles being proof of sainthood; even Satan can produce lying signs and wonders, as well as presenting himself as “an angel of light”.
let us pray to one another that we will be victorious in this coming end of time, GOD says don’t be afraid to them that will kill your flesh, but be afraid to HIM that will kill your soul, as JESUS and HIS disciple died in keeping the true faith, some followers of JESUS will also suffer the same, but HE assure us be not afraid, lo i am with always tll the end of the world.
There is only one saint who ever walked this earth, Jesus Christ our L-rd and Savior.
The skull of saint Mendita is both hideous, and at the same time, looks just plain goofy. Why would anyone want to sit around and look at that or be compelled to display it? My reaction would be to hide it.
Reblogged this on The Iniquitous Church Crimes.
This is a verification of relics: http://www.ewtn.com/library/answers/relics.htm
Also, we venerate relics, not worship them. If you saw Jesus hanging on the cross, would you not touch him, or at least fall to your knees before him?
Jesus is alive. He is no longer on the Cross. That is the victorious message of all time.
What a sick collection the Roman “church” keeps! It really is indefensible. Our Lord God forbade the Israelites to even TOUCH a dead body! What makes you think that the Roman “church” would have His approval of such?! Making a religious relic out of dead body parts is a corrupt and vile practice! Those who do have heaped judgment upon themselves.
We do not have to argue about everything.. or anything as long as we believe in one true god. Let us pray to god that we too in time of trials, will have faith same to that of those saints that have endured because of him. Thanks. God bless us all. Amen.
