Do Christians know what the Olympic torch means?

...

In Greek mythology, the original “torch-bearer” was Prometheus, the Titan who stole fire from the gods in order to give it to humanity...

The act of “carrying the torch” is symbolic of man’s awareness of his own “divine spark” and represents his aspiration to become “one of the gods”. This is, in a nutshell, the core philosophy of the world’s elite, which is heavily influenced by the teachings of Freemasonry, Rosicrucianism and Illuminism. For this reason, Prometheus’ Torch of Illumination is often found in the occult elite’s symbolism.

So what? YOUR ancestor stole an apple from your god,agains express orders.How's that better? Does that make apple an occult symbol?

And by the way,I'm pretty sure Prometheus was not a Titan, merely a hero. And hoo boy, did HE get what was coming to him...

Isn't this more of a CSTDT? What with the Illuminati and Masons?

Although, someone being apalled that humans want to be more than worms grovelling before almighty Sky Daddy sure has some fundieness.

BTW, Prometheus was a titan. The Greek myths also credit him with creating humanity from clay, among other cool things.

Isn’t the Olympic torch ignited in the old Zeus temple in Olympia, Greece? Zeus was not really the biggest fan of Prometheus…

(And I don’t think you really put much research into your conspiracy theory. Here you have the unique opportunity to include the Nazis without “Godwinning” [is that a word?] and you miss it!)

Well, speaking as a Brit, I certainly know what the Olympic Torch means (especially as it passed through my city, Hull, just a few weeks ago, on it's relay around the UK)...

...in just ten days time, we'll be hosting the Greatest Show on Earth, and you fundies in the US won't XP

And how it'll stick in your collective craws over there, that this time we won't have to get up at unholy hours of the day to watch events live (example: an athletics event at, say, 10 AM our time, will be shown in the US at 5 - 2 AM) It's your turn to suffer! [/smug & superior] >:D

There's a quicker way, you know:

"Christians made up the Lucifer character based on the Prometheus figure and demonized it to ensure their followers wouldn't mess with other religions."

Done.

I know fundies want to live in the past, but rejecting cave man technology is really living in the past.

In case you haven't noticed, the Olympics originated as a pagan religious festival. That's where the whole symbolism comes from, no secret organization needed

Actually, Prometheus stole the fire in defiance of the gods and for the benefit of the human race. And that's good.

Because they couldn't have kept the torch just because it was tradition. No, the Lou Malnati's is trying to convert us to paganism because...umm...I don't know but I'm sure they have some nefarious reason for it!

The act of stealing fire from the gods is about SELF IMPROVEMENT. Striving to make one's self better than you are now.

No wonder fundies are so hostile to the idea.

And if we see chemtrails above the Olympic stadium, then that just proves it!

They even see occult symbolism in something as inoffensive as the Olympic Games. What's in the water over there?

Do xians know what the broom means?
IT is a symbol of witches and their dark madjick in the medieval period. People who supposedly made pacts with the debil. And as such....any self respecting, non sinning xian would only own a vacuum cleaner, and NEVER own a broom.

Jeez....this is as silly as never eating a Caesar salad. As you should "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and render unto gawd what id gawd's". I mean....the salad belongs to Caesar so you have to give it to him. Cant eat it. But that brings up the question....can xians eat greek salads without sinning?

I'm betting it means your house will be cold and your food raw until some helpful person brings it back to you.

If he really wanted to demonize the torch, he should have pointed who it was that started the trend of carrying from Greece to the host city.

(It was Hitler)

Well, with the torch, OK, illuminism, sure.

Yeah, they hate all forms of science and knowledge - now we can't even have Fire? What's up with that?

Actually, Prometheus was a Titan. He was the Titan of being all smart and wise and shit. He was the dude who was chained to a rock and forced to have his liver eaten by a hawk forever. At least until he was rescued by Hercules.

Other stuff that originally had pagan religious connections: money, writing, buildings with columns, calendars. Be sure to avoid them.

the core philosophy of the world’s elite

Dear Amanda, don't worry, you can sleep quietly tonight: nobody will make a connection between you and any elite, ever.

You're as far from being a member of the elite as humanly possible, you can be very sure of that.
