“Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:” -Exodus 20:3-4

“The Baphomet, which was recently erected in Detroit and Oklahoma, is an androgynous creature with manly arms, woman’s breasts, a goat’s head, and a rod with intertwined serpents. The Baphomet is a popular sigil among witches, magicians, and satanists. It is also popular among pop “musicians” which apparently shows who they pay homage to, and the spirit working behind their music. The hand gesture teaches the occult maxim “As Above, So Below”- means that things on earth (below) come from or are affected by things above. That’s astrology, among other things. It also has to do with gaining power; “realizing your true potential.” Baphomet is a symbol of rebellion against God.”
One source reads it is “also known as The Judas Goat, The Men of Mendes, and The Black Goat. The symbol is portrayed as a man with a horned head and goat’s leg and is a gnostic or pagan deity. The Knights Templar were accused of worshiping this demonic deity, and from there, Baphomet was incorporated into numerous occult and mystical traditions. During ceremonies, this symbol is hanged on the altar’s western wall. Lastly, various occult societies use the Baphomet to represent the fallen angel Satan.”
Yet another source reads it’s a “demonic deity and symbolic of Satan. Can be seen as jewelry It is also now being used by the masons. It can be seen on their buildings and the emblems the put on their vehicles to identify each other.”
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
