- If a man does not worship God alone, he will perish.
Worship means many things to many people, but to God it means slavery to His Will for our everlasting benefit. The derivation of the term in English comes from the ‘recognition of worthiness’. And in ancient Hebrew it literally means “to bow down’ or ‘prostrate’ oneself before a king; or ‘to grovel like a dog and lick the master’s hand’ — not a particularly acceptable image to proud, egocentric eyes, which is why Jews rejected and/or murdered their prophets in deference to Chaldean and Philistine magi. Nevertheless, I think it best to grovel than become part of Hell’s ongoing expansion program.
It is worth the effort to review the Judaic commandment from the King James Translation of the Torat; Deut. 5: 6-10:
I am the Lord thy God, Which brought thee out of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Thou shalt have none other Gods before me. Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third generation of them that hate me, and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me and keep My commandments.
On review of this passage, we understand why Protestants abbreviated the original version and Catholic authorities, especially, discouraged and even forbade its reading. The command also confirms my several remarks on the use of symbols and icons. The latter use, i.e., semiotics, is a major party to all sectarian divergence, and most especially those of occult fellowships. Symbolism, when referenced to the metaphysics of cosmogony and theology constitutes forms of subliminal idolatry. To excuse this and continue using of the Star and Crescent of ancient Chaldea to represent Islam is a position that cannot be defended on the Day of Judgment.
‘Idolatry’ in the Hebrew is the word, hebal, which means ‘vanity’ or ‘worthlessness’, particularly the latter. This extremely meaningful word brings us full circle to the definition of Worship, which is the conscious acknowledgement of that which is more worthy or superior. One must ask, therefore, to who or what do sectarians bow when they prostrate under symbols or photos placed on a parade ground or within prayer and meditation rooms? This is a straightforward matter; for which there is, unfortunately, no excuse, especially on the day of judgment.
The Law of Worship, therefore, like all Spiritual Laws, brooks no compromise and carries a distinct warning. It is a law that bears within it the concepts of honor and love. If a man breaks this law, he inadvertently pays honor and respect to an enemy of truth no matter how high his deluded aspiration attempts to ascend. God will not accept his prayer or deed no matter how wonderful or glorious it appears in the eyes of men. Keeping this in mind, and as a practical exercise in the political science of ponerology, raise the matter of symbolism (iconography) in any religious or political forum and sectarian deviants (the skirtoid type) will surge in its defense with threats to marginalize (or worse) all who do not agree with their apologies for the crime against heaven. Another ostensibly non-pugnacious lot—mostly hypocrites and elitists whose positions depend on idolatry—will politely excuse you as not ‘worthy’ of membership in their respective cliques and country clubs; this includes most politicians, business CEOs, bankers, and academics; all of whom will immediately return to the pretense of politically correct punditry like so many roosters.
One should not underestimate the power of symbols or the duplicity of institutions that effectively wield them; including the Church and its derivatives of Humanism, Socialism and Communism and other institutionalized fetishism. Essentially, they are sigils that work a form of magic on the general populace as illustrated by the slides below:
The first recorded Muslim example of such an exercise was that of Mu’awiyah who raised the Qur’an as an icon which then altered the course of history in his temporal favor. At that particular moment he otherwise would have been defeated, but the results of his action were so powerful and immediate that troops of Hadrat Ali succumbed to superstitious fear rather than obey the legal command of God’s authentic Viceroy. This cunning exploitation of man’s superstitious nature is called pragmatics in the science of semiotics:
The process of interaction within the triadic unity of sign–designatum–interpretant is called semiosis. Morris decomposed this process into the three dyadic relationships-processes:
a) syntactic studies relations among signs,
b) semantics studies relations between signs and their designata,
c) pragmatics studies relations between sign-vehicles and their
The power of symbolic idolatry is such that it causes men to ignore divine guidance. In the case just cited, divine guidance was Hadrat Ali’s command to attack. The immense power of fetishism is therefore demonstrated as a type of PSYOP conditioning tool used to silence the mob’s better judgment, especially in public venues. In this instance, the result was an act of obedience to an inanimate object, the written Koran, which, in all truth was mere ink and paper material, whereby the essence of the Koran was completely ignored to the public’s immense harm, which then allowed the ponerogenic usurpation of Islam by lines of typically sociopathic dynasts. This is a misplaced form of veneration that is historically rampant as practiced also by Catholics, Hindus and Buddhists, among other fetishists, and was prophesied by the Prophet (wslm) who referred to the manufacture of ‘gilded Korans’ whose content would never pass beyond vocal chords to enter the ark of the human heart. Hadrat Ali’s defeat, therefore, was the result of sociopathic cunning. Someone in Mu’awiyah’s camp, most likely a Kabalist Jew, had psychological expertise enough to manipulate the Skirtoids  in Ali’s army by using superstition as a fulcrum and the Koran as an idol.
In paying honor to an idol, one expresses love, veneration, reverence and obedience to something other than God, His prophets or their representatives. And since ‘God’ is a term that literally means ‘He who decides’, it is better to grovel on the dirt floor of an icon-idol free shed than the finest marble floor of a Mosque displaying the Star of Isis & Crescent Moon of Mythras.

 Vital, egotistical, and thick-skinned individuals who make good soldiers because of their endurance and psychological resistance. In peacetime, however, they are incapable of understanding life’s subtler matters or rearing children prudently. They are happy in primitive surroundings; a comfortable environment easily causes hysterization within them. They are rigidly conservative in all areas and supportive of governments that rule with a heavy hand. – Political Ponerology, op. cit. p. 136
 This symbol actually represents the horns of a bull worn as a head-dress by Nimrud, grandson of Noah and King of Babel who contended with Ibrahim. It is a constant feature of both Mythraic and Baal Worship from ancient antiquity through to modern derivatives. In ancient Haran, the moon-god cultus referred to him as Sin, a term that is traced through Accadia to the Dravidian Culture of the Hindus Valley of present day Pakistan. The star represents Isis or the ancient Chaldean goddess Ishtar. These idolatrous icons were elevated for use in Islam by the very un-Islamic Ottoman Turks during the 16th century.
