9 – The gods of Babylon

Hislop believes the religion that began at the Tower of Babel was actually the worship of Satan in the form of fire, the sun and the serpent5.  However, Satan worship could not be done openly because of the many who still believed in the true God of Noah.  So a mystery religion began at Babel where Satan could be worshipped in secret.” Herbert Peters, Recommendation 666, pp. 46, 47 5. Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons, 2nd American ed. (Neptune, New Jersey: Loizeaux Brothers, 1959) 227

“In the unity of that one Only God of the Babylonians, there were three persons, and to symbolise that doctrine of the Trinity, they employed, as the discoveries of Layard prove, the equilateral triangle, just as it is well known the Romish Church does at this day.” –The Two Babylons ; Alexander Hislop, Chapter II

“Adventist beliefs have changed over the years under the impact of ‘present truth.’ Most startling is the teaching regarding Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord. Many of the pioneers, including James White, J.N. Andrews, Uriah Smith, and J.H. Waggoner, held to an Arian or semi-Arian view … that is, the Son at some point in time before the Creation of our world was generated by the Father the Trinitarian understanding of God, now part of our fundamental beliefs, was not generally held by the early Adventists. Even today a few do not subscribe to it.” (William G. Johnsson in the Adventist Review, Jan. 6, 1994 p.10)
