Ancient Egyptians believed that in order to become immortal after death, a spirit must first pass through the underworld — a realm of vast caverns, lakes of fire, and magical gates. Needless to say, one needed to come prepared. But how? Tejal Gala describes an Egyptian “Book of the Dead” — a customized magic scroll written by the living to promote a smooth passage to the afterlife when they died.

  1. So he has to tell the assessor gods that he hasn’t sinned, but the scarab amulet is there to make sure he doesn’t admit the times he’s sinned? I sure hope one of the 42 sins isn’t lying.

  2. Sooo the beetle hides their truth? And they lie to get into “heaven”… wait! the “gods” don’t already know the truth ? Hmmm 🧐 interesting!

  3. This is Satanism originating in Babylon with Nimrod/Tammuz and Semiramis!

    …"Tammuz is the Osiris of the Egyptians; the same with Mizraim, the first king of Egypt, who, being slain in battle, his wife his ordered that he should be worshipped as a god, and a yearly lamentation made for him; and indeed Osiris and Adonis seem to be one and the same, only in different nations called by different names. Mention is made in Plato (d) of Thamus, a king that reigned at Thebes over all Egypt, and was the god called Ammon; no doubt the same with this Tammuz; and who is here called, in the Syriac and Arabic versions, Thamuz or Tamuz; he seems to be the same with Ham; and Egypt was called, the land of Ham, Psalm 105:27"
    See Gills Exposition on the entire Bible(Ezekiel 8:14)
