Egyptian Influence on Modern Religions II

Hidden In Plain Sight

The Obelisk was an ancient Egyptian symbol employed in Modern religion. It is usually ‘hidden in plain sight’. One of the methods through which information is concealed is by having it, ‘hidden in plain sight’. This is a very ancient practice that has been used by various peoples throughout the ages. It is a method of concealing information from those they chose not to share it with. At the same time, making it openly available to those who already are acquainted with its meaning.

Secret societies have used this technique for millennia. The African slaves who were tortured and killed for following the spiritual traditions they brought with them, employed it as well. The Europeans greatly feared their spiritual practices, and to a large extent still do. As a result, they forbade them from even praying or singing as has been their customary manner for thousands of years. Disobedience meant they could be mercilessly whipped, have their hands cut off, or even killed. That was the price they could pay for worshiping these ‘demons’, as they were eventually classified.

African/Egyptian Influence In Modern Religions

In an attempt to avoid this torturous, barbarous and sometimes deadly treatment, they resorted to hiding their spiritual practices. This they did under the guise of worshiping the Christian deities. So for example Ogun became St. Peter; Oshun became Mary and Obatala (Damballa in the Shango) became St. Patrick. To their European captors they appeared to be worshiping the Christian deities. All the while they were in reality venerating their African ancestors. It was indeed ‘hidden in plain sight’. It is from those practises that we have what is known today as the Spiritual Baptist, a ‘Christian’ denomination incorporating African spiritual beliefs. A history that (sadly) many modern day practitioners are unaware of.

Egyptian Obelisk Incorporated In Places Of Worship

Almost all of the world’s religions have been started by members of secret societies. This includes most of the top Christian denominations. It is therefore quite natural that Obelisks and other Egyptian influences are incorporated into our modern religious systems. The African/Egyptian influence is clearly ‘hidden’ under the guise of Architecture. Hidden from the masses, while clearly evident to those who are familiar with the esoteric knowledge.

In the collage I have put together below, you can clearly see the evidence of Egyptian Obelisks on Hindu temples, Mosques and the magazine of a major Christian organization. in fact the Washington Monument was imported all the way from Egypt and strategically placed there.Egyptian obelisk in modern worship

  1. Hinduism or Sanatana Dharma (as referred to in Sanskrit) is not a modern religion; it pre-dates Egyptian culture/religion. Sanatana Dharma is a way of life, leading the seeker to truth.; it is not merely a religion. May I suggest you explore the Vedas, Puranas and Upanishads? And perhaps re-evaluate your theory on the influence of Egyptian religion on ‘Hindu’ Temples? Thank you.
