Runes Exposed


“Runes are ancient Teutonic and Norse alphabet sigils (signs or images) placed upon titles that are given magical and divinatory properties. The word “rune” derives from the Indo-European root “rw,” meaning “mystery or “secret.” One author refers to the runes as a “later and more sophisticated version of the I Ching…” The runes are said to be like the tarot, Ouija Board, and other forms of divination, that give access to (demonic) power. The Germans have been fascinated by the runes, and Nazism not only made use of them but of much other occultism as well. The church actively tried to stamp out runic divination, but it inevitably became linked with witches, warlocks, and their arts. Runes become a vital component of the Third Reich’s belief in Aryan superiority. The Nazis employed two runes routinely: the swastika (originally a Norse magical symbol known as Thor’s hammer) and the lightning-looking sigil used by the SS troops, originally a symbol of the Earth Mother and the sun. In recent decades, runes have experienced another revival, perhaps, at least in part, from the popularity of the Roman Catholic J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” which has been falsely attributed as a Christian allegory. Christians should stay clear of all forms of divination.”

More examples of runes, some hidden in plain sight:

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.”

    Sigh. You know, there are lots of runes, (24, plus extras), not just the S, which is the only one that you seem to know about. Also just because some stupid band uses an angular S like a lightning bolt in their logo, doesn’t mean they’re using runes. I get the Nazi pin, but Britney Spears? Are you fucking kidding me? Get some better pictures, Maybe some real pagan ritual tools and tattoos with lots of runes on and in them, not just the S.

    Jeez, what a terrible article. You can’t bring yourself to do minimal research can you? Allow me to rewrite it for you. Here you go.
    Runes are an ancient Teutonic and Norse alphabet. Apart from their phonetic value, each rune has a deeper magickal meaning which is used in divination and talismanic magick. These meanings are derived from poems written by the Anglo Saxons, Norwegians and Icelanders. The rune meanings and divination layouts are also heavily influenced by the Tarot, although neopagans will often not admit this. There is almost no information about how the runes were used in magick and divination in antiquity, except that they were. The one primary source describes characters written on chips and cast on the ground, but offers no more information on the interpretation. The word “rune” derives from the Indo-European root “rw,” meaning “mystery or “secret.” One author refers to the runes as “later and more sophisticated version of the I Ching…” Nazi Germany made use of the runes in their symbolism. There are examples of the Nazis using the runic S, O, Z, and T, as well as other non-runic ancient symbols such as the swastika, triskele, and more recently, valknut. The popularity of the made-up alphabets of J.R.R. Tolkien may have contributed to the popularity of the real runes in recent years. In Norse mythology the runes were discovered by the god Odin when he stabbed, and hung himself from the world tree in a sacrifice to himself. This resemblance of this scene to the crucifixion of Christ was not lost on our ancestors. Indeed, early depictions of Christ from Scandinavia often showed him entangled in the branches of a tree like Odin. (You might want to explore the differences between Odin’s and Jesus’ sacrifice from a Christian theological perspective.)
    Continue with Christian warnings about dangers of divination and magick.
    Please rewrite the article. Lies and bad research is worse than outright condemnation
    Also, get some better pictures. Maybe some inscribed ritual tools, tattoos, or even corporate logos like Bluetooth.
