Occult Markings on Church History Museum and Visitor’s Center
The Church History Museum (formerly known as theMuseum of Church History and Art until 2008) is a large white three story building located at the west gate of Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City.
The inside of the building houses exhibits on church history from the time of Joseph Smith to present day events (2014) and what concerns us is choice they’ve made by depicting the occult markings on the inside and the outside of that building. We’re taking a look at some of those here.
Located on the outside front entrance of the Museum is a stone carving that depicts a set of upside down pentagrams. This seems to be a continuing theme in the world of Mormonism and we have to ask why. If this is a Christian organization why would they continue to house these occult markings on their buildings?
Here’s a close-up of the inverted pentagrams near top of the display.
To the right of the upside down pentagrams you’ll see the sunstone which is also present on the Nauvoo Temple. You can read about their meanings and what the Church says about them in our article on Inverted Stain Glass Pentagrams here.
If the occult markings on the outside weren’t bad enough at one time there was also an exhibit on the inside of the museum in the children’s section with large pentagrams along with paper and crayons for the kids to draw what they saw.
You can find other disturbing displays of the occult at the Visitor’s Center, located at Temple Square. To be sure, the Church has used every square inch of their property to adorn the most evil of symbols known to mankind. Their repeated use of these leaves no question as to whom they worship.
Inside the Visitor’s Center are planter boxes that line the windows in front of their Christus statue. Each planter box is adorned with an upside down pentagram.
The image on the right is a striking pictorial of LDS leadership in front of theChristus statue. Why is the earth dark behind ‘Christ’? Jesus is the light of the world and brought light to mankind. Why is it shrouded in darkness?
Another display that you’ll find in the Visitor’s Center is an altar. This isn’t just any ol’ altar, oh no. This is an altar of Adam and Eve giving an offering of fruit to God! Why would they do this you say? Yeah well, we’ve asked ourselves that very same question…
The altar scene is taken from Genesis 4:1-8 when Cain and Abel offered their sacrifices to God. Abel offered a lamb and Cain offered fruit of the ground. As we all know, God was displeased with Cain’s offering so our next question is why would Adam and Eve offer the same thing their sinful son Cain did? And why is the lamb sitting at the foot of the altar not being sacrificed?
The demonic markings on their temples, visitor’s center and history museum make a loud statement that shouldn’t be overlooked! These emblems aren’t a reflection of Jesus, nor do they bring glory to God!
As we think on these things remember to pray for the Mormon people who typically have no idea what these things mean. Pray that God will open their eyes to the truth and they’ll begin to wonder why anything representing the occult would adorn the most sacred places on earth.
Very interesting post. So it seems like the Adam and Eve display is supposed to show that mankind is able to offer sacrifices of their own choice and making that is pleasing to God?
As you pointed out, the Bible makes it clear that Cain’s non bloody sacrifice did not please God, but Abel’s animal sacrifice did please God. Because of the disobedience of Adam & Eve sin entered the world and their relationship with God was broken. The Bible tells us that Adam & Eve tried to cover themselves with fig leaves to cover their shame, but that did not suffice. Instead, God clothed them with animal skins. So an animal was sacrificed so that its blood would pay the penalty for their sin. The Bible tells us that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. See Hebrews 9:22 see also Genesis 9:4 “the life is in the blood”
It is clear from scripture that we cannot pay for our sins. We cannot please God through our own efforts. In fact, the Bible calls our good works “filthy rags”! Isaiah 64:6
Those who try to please God through their own good works and morality actually put themselves under a curse. Why? Because if you break any part of the law of God you are guilty of all. See Galatians 3:10 None of us can perfectly keep the law. Remember that the Lord Jesus Christ did not lessen the demands of the law, but He increased them! He took it back to our hearts and our motives.. it is not just what we do outwardly, but our very thoughts and motives, our hearts that are sinful. We do things for bad motives; we also neglect to do what we ought. There are no “good people”!! We are born sinners because we are made in the likeness of our first parents, Adam and Eve. God is not our “parent” -Adam and Eve are!! See Genesis 5:3 and Romans chapter 5
All of this to say: in God’s economy, sin incurs a penalty, a death penalty. All sin is an offense against a holy, righteous God. God has shown us throughout scripture that He requires a blood sacrifice to atone (pay) for it. This is what the Lord Jesus Christ did on the cross of Calvary. He paid the penalty for the sins of His people so that they can be reconciled to God. We cannot please God because our sins have separated us from Him. We cannot earn our way back to Him, but we must humble ourselves and come in the way that God Himself has provided. That way is Jesus .
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
Another show of complete ignorance. The inverted pentagram only became a symbol of evil in the 1800s. It was a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem shining down on Jesus’s birth and once the pentagram and the inverted pentagram was even a close runner up in the contest of the early Christian church to the cross to be the symbol of the Christian faith. Not only that, it has been used in many religions in the far past way before it became a symbol of evil or of the devil. I would recommend you do some research before writing such a ridiculous article.
” The inverted pentagram only became a symbol of evil in the 1800s. ” So then why would Joseph Smith allow the symbol on the Nauvoo Temple?
