Statue of Attis

Attis, a sun god, (pictured below) was the consort of Cybele in Phrygian and Greek mythology and god of vegetation. In his self-mutilation, death, and resurrection he represents the fruits of the earth, which die in winter only to rise again in the spring. Various finds suggest that the cult of Attis was popular in Herculaneum at the time of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.

The coin below is a representation of Helios, also a sun god to the Greek. Helios was described as a handsome titan crowned with the shining aureole of the Sun and is closely associated with, and sometimes consciously identified with, Apollo.

While these seem like distant religions of distant people we need to recognize the influence of Satan has been and will be far reaching, claiming authority and rule over all the peoples of the world.

The last picture is very familiar to Americans, yet they have no truth of its origin or its purpose. While claimed to be a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, it was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi.

Bartholdi got his inspiration for the sculpture from Egyptian mythology and originally proposed the sculpture as a huge lighthouse for the Suez Canal based on the Colossus of Rhodes: an ancient bronze statue of the Greek god of the sun, Helios.

It was only after several failed attempts to edify ancients gods with the statue in other nations it finally found favor with the son of a friend of Bartholdi, an American artist, John LaFarge. LaFarge would make the political and societal connections to make a place for the statue in New York’s harbor.

Lady Liberty is really not a lady at all, and too, as a depiction of a “god” there would be no freedom offered to humanity only subjugation.
