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.
