10 Truths About Christian Imagery That Your Pastor Probably Never Told You

cross a pagan symbol

Cross Was Originally a Pagan Symbol

The cross is regarded as one of the core symbols of Christianity. It is believed to be a holy symbol originating from the Christian religion as a symbol that represents God’s sacrifice of Jesus Christ at Calvary. The truth is, however, the cross is actually a pagan symbol that wasn’t even considered a Christian symbol for years after Yeshua the Messiah was born. Sandy Nagy, an Examiner contributor and author who focuses on numerous biblical subjects, wants people to consider a few things before assuming the cross is a symbol of Christian origin.

“If the cross is a Christian symbol, then why is it traceable way back to Babylon and Egypt, as far back as 2,000 B.C. … ?” Nagy wrote in an article for the Examiner. “Many ancient cultures used crosses or the mystic Tau. Babylon seems to be the originator from ancient Chaldea, but you can find crosses in Egypt [Egypt is often separated from Africa by Eurasian-centric intellects], India, China, Africa, Mexico, Greece, Italy, and South American histories. All before Yeshua was ever born.”

  1. Egypt is in Africa…

  2. Ishtar is a Babylonian goddess, so why try to link her to St. Peter's square via an Egyptian obelisk? The six-pointed star on the Pope's hat is better known as "The Star of David," and an ancient symbol of Judaism; silly New Age cults have nothing to do with it. The cross — two intersecting lines — is a common symbol all over the world; Christians get it from the Greek letter "X" which is the first letter in the word "Christ." It doesn't have some sort of secret, occult origin. The Jesus fish is not a vagina. What's with this article? Why make a valid (though obvious) statement such as "Jesus probably wasn't white" and then surround it with such bogus crap? It definitely doesn't help the credibility of the Atlanta Black Star. Would you publish a similar list of absurd, wacko aspersions & label them "truths" about Islam?

  3. I love this site, for the introduction to new information and historical perspective. However, in order for anyone to confidently rely upon your articles as a source of reliable information, Atlanta Black Star needs to have improved editing and for the sake of all that is holy and unholy….PLEASE CITE YOUR SOURCES! lol

    You on drugs bro.

    I still don't think any of the pictures are jesus. Eventhough jesus never exists I highly doubt that's what the ancient people in palestine look like on the left. I don't trust these forensic science especially being down by these eurotards. I recalled when they did with the reconstruction of king tut making him look like barbara streissand twin brother.

  6. Not sure what Egypt has to do with Ishtar… but the obelisk was there before the Vatican was. They just 're-purposed' it, like they do with a lot of columns by putting a statue of a saint on top.

  7. I am as far away from being a Christian as it's possibly to be but the question at the end of your comments is ultra valid David Frederick.

  8. Actually for the 6 sided star being related to Satan 666 is false. In my study of melanin I ran across what the real meaning behind the number 666 and its importance. It is actually demonized. 666 is if you look up the 6th element Carbon. Carbon has 6 electrons 6 neutrons and 6 protons. Now look at the star again. It is a carbon atom. Our bodies are made of what? Carbon. Look into it more
