Taking, then, the admitted unity and Babylonian character of the ancient Mysteries of Egypt, Greece, Phoenicia, and Rome, as the clue to guide us in our researches, let us go on from step to step in our comparison of the doctrine and practice of the two Babylons–the Babylon of the Old Testament and the Babylon of the New.
In the “Institutes of Menu,” he is characterised as “He whom the mind alone can perceive; whose essence eludes the external organs, who has no visible parts, who exists from eternity It obtained the epithet of perfectand was believed to be the most ancient of religious systems, having preceded that of the Egyptians. Now we find statements in their sacred books which prove that once a very different doctrine must have been taught.
After referring to the fact that the Egyptian priests claimed the honour of having transmitted to the Greeks the first elements of Polytheism, he thus concludes: When we look at the symbols in the triune figure of Layard, already referred to, and minutely examine them, they are very instructive.
The statement of Bunsen is to the effect that the religious system of Egypt was derived from Asia, and “the primitive empire in Babel. Out of the middle of this figure is proceeding the Holy Ghost in the form of a dove. Hence, from Dheva or Theva”The Good,” naturally comes the Sanscrit, Devaor, without the digamma, as it frequently is, Deo”God,” the Latin, Deusand the Greek, Theosthe digamma in the original Thevo-s being also dropped, as novus in Latin is neos in Greek.
Zero, in this sense, had evidently come from the Chaldee, zer”to encompass,” from which, also, no doubt, was derived the Babylonian name for a great cycle of time, called a ” saros. Here, then, we find that Brahm is just the same as “Er-Rahman,” “The all-merciful one,”–a title applied by the Turks to the Most High, and that the Hindoos, notwithstanding their deep religious degradation nowhad once known that “the most holy, most high God,” is also “The God of Mercy,” in other words, that he is “a just God and a Saviour.
The other is the head of an old man, surmounted by a triangle.
The ancient Icelandic mythology calls him “the Author of every thing that existeth, the eternal, the living, and awful Being; the searcher into concealed things, the Being that never changeth. From Zonaras we find that the concurrent testimony of the ancient authors he had consulted was to this effect; for, speaking of arithmetic and astronomy, he says: In both cases such a comparison is most degrading to the King Eternal, and is fitted utterly to pervert the minds of those who contemplate it, as if there was hisslop could be any similitude between such a figure and Him who hath said, “To whom will ye liken God, and what likeness will ye compare unto Him?
But there is reason to believe that “Deva” has a much more honourable origin, and that it really came originally from alfxander Chaldee, Thav”good,” which is also legitimately pronounced Thevand in the emphatic form is Theva or Thevo”The Good.

All these separate facts–all these scattered testimonies, recur to that fruitful principle which places in the East the centre of science and civilisation. If the angel here referred to had not been God, Jacob could never have invoked him as on an equality with God.
So utterly idolatrous was the Babylonian recognition of the Divine unity, that Jehovah, the Living God, severely condemned His own people for giving any countenance to it: Petersburg, and given in Parson’s “Japhet. The identity of Nimrod with the constellation Orion is not to be rejected. Both Bunsen and Layard in their researches have come to substantially the same result.
The ancient Babylonians, just as the modern Romans, recognised in words the unity of the Godhead; and, while worshipping innumerable minor deities, as possessed of certain influence on human affairs, they distinctly acknowledged that there was ONE infinite and almighty Creator, supreme over all. Now to establish the identity between the systems of alxander Babylon and Papal Rome, we have just to inquire in how far does the system of the Papacy agree with the system established in these Babylonian Mysteries.

Now we find such doss applied to Brahm, the one supreme God, as cannot be accounted for, except on the supposition that Brahm had the very same meaning as the Hebrew Rahm. Macrobius shows that the distinguishing feature of the Phoenician idolatry must have been imported from Assyria, which, in classic writers, included Babylonia. Major Moor, speaking of Brahm, the supreme God of the Hindoos, says: Back Table of Contents Forward moza butterfly.
If there be this general coincidence between the systems of Babylon and Rome, the question arises, Does the coincidence stop here? Rahm in Hebrew signifies “The merciful or compassionate one.
We have only to bring the ancient Babylonian Mysteries to bear on the whole system of Rome, and then it will be seen how immensely the one has borrowed from the other.

Layard, in his last work, has given a specimen of such a triune divinity, worshipped in ancient Assyria. Nay, not merely jislop the ancient Hindoos exalted ideas of the natural perfections of God, but there is evidence that they were well aware of the gracious character of God, as revealed in His dealings with a lost and guilty world.
We think it must be painful to any Christian mind, and repugnant to Christian feeling, to look at this figure. Backend server did not respond in time. But in so doing he is entirely inconsistent, for he admits that Brahma, the first person in that triform image, is identified with the supreme Brahm; and further, that a curse is pronounced upon all who distinguish between Brahma, Vishnu, and Seva, the three divinities represented by that image. We beg to speak of it with due reverence.
One of the heads is like the ordinary pictures of our Saviour. Though modern Hinduism recognises millions of gods, yet the Indian sacred books show that originally it had been far otherwise. In India, the supreme divinity, in like manner, in one of the most ancient cave-temples, is represented with three heads on one body, under the name of “Eko Deva Trimurtti,” “One God, three forms.
It evidently meant that He who, ever since the fall, has been revealed to man as the “Merciful and Gracious One” Exo And here I have to notice, first, the identity of the objects of worship in Babylon and Rome. Kennedy alexanedr to the application of the name “Eko Deva” to the triform image in the cave-temple at Elephanta, on the ground that that name belongs only to the supreme Brahm.
