BAPTISM - COTYTTO (a.k.a.

Cotys)
(Greek: - [] / )
The priests of Cotytto, the goddess of promiscuous sex (including gay / bi sex), were called Bapt, the same base form of Baptism (Bapt), and religiouslypracticed the same kind of watering ritual.
Instead of using something different, Jesus ordered Baptism for a reason. Also, John the Baptist was the principal prerequisite to Jesus. Could have Jesus or John the Baptist not known about Cotytto? Coty(t)to / Cotys Bapt / Baptai / Bapto / Bapti / Baptes writings range from 500 B.C. to 100 A.D. Cotytto was a Greek religious deity. Pagan deities and their characteristics were the language and definitions of the era. The entire New Testament was originally written in Greek. Paul prophesied mostly to the Greek world. Jesus Old Testament quotes are mostly from the Greek Old Testament (the Septuagint), not the Hebrew Old Testament. Regardless, God knew about Cotytto (and her priests baptizing / watering rituals / logo), and Jesus is the Son of God so, Jesus knew.
(See here for details about the changed definition of the word fornication / sexual immorality, and many more subjects with evidence. All this proves that the many centuries of changing Jesus into an anti-sex / pro-marriage ideal was a very large deception, only for the then advantage of secular financial gain.)

Cotys: The goddess of sexuality. She was celebrated with secret feasts held by her servants, the baptai "baptized ones", who released the forces of life through erotic celebration. Although well known for sex orgies, Dionysus / Bacchus was the god of wine; Orpheus was the musician (both attributable in early Christian art, as shown via my home page), but the actual deity of promiscuous sex was Cotytto / Cotys. Her characteristics of promiscuous and gay sex were more than any other diety: the very definition of it. In addition to my findings of the definite corruptions in the Bible words fornication and agape (love), Christ used this obvious Baptism correlation as a supporting message to displace todays popular Church corruption against free sex. This is timeless information.
Cassells Latin Dictionary, Simpson, 1968, p. 73 (Latin-English), Baptae: P. 156, Ctytt:

Of course I dont recommend having promiscusous sex until there are cures and preventives for all STDs including HIV/AIDS. But, very likely, these facts will expedite that process, as few today want to spend their money to go against God.

The Reverend Mr. Reeves says (Notes on Justin Martyr): "Thus were men initiated into the mysteries of Eleusis, and he who initiated them was called "Hydranus, the Waterer'" Tertullian says that thus men were initiated into the mysteries of Isis and Mithra; and Apuleius describes purification by water as part of the ceremonial of the Isiac initiation. Those initiated into the mysteries of the Goddess Cotytto were called Baptes, from the ceremony of Baptism, which was part of the initiation; and Eupoles, rival of Aristophanes, wrote a comedy called The Baptes, ridiculing them. That was in the time of Socrates. (Same text in book form is at: http://books.google.com/books?id=6ix84jqOoK0C&pg=PA2&dq=Reception+of+a+Louveteau+and+A

Two incidents in the life of Jesus at his return to the public eye carry great amounts of Pagan influence. The first is his baptism. Purification by water was very common it was done by the Greeks in the Elysian Mysteries and by theThracian priestesses whose name were the Baptes. The idea of baptism centres around the idea of water as the blood of the mother and the womb of life (cauldron-grail).

You see, God isnt going to say Cotytto in the Bible, so it can evade Middle Age church corruption; to make it available for me to use today. Otherwise, all legends of this deity and her priests would have been destroyed or corrupted. Since God could have easily picked any other, or made up another kind of sacrament for us to follow (from wiggling our toes in the air, to dancing cats), theres only one logical reason for Him choosing Baptism, and thats to support my commentary today about unconditional sex.

Brewers Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, 1999, p. 283, Cotytto:

See BAPTES is missing. The Jesus-Cotytto connection is two-fold: (1) The base form word Bapt was only used by Cotyttos priests out of all Greek and Roman religions. Therefore, the connection is firm even if her priests didnt

ritualize the watering part. When researching the meaning of a word, the historic and current use of the same base word, has everything to do with its meaning; especially when its used for the same purpose (religion). (2) The ritual watering part connects it to Cotytto and a few other supportive orgy (mystery) religions as well. Out of the thousands of deities, only a handful ritualized sex orgies. And, Cotytto was the only one named for it. Now, people like James Dobson will say that Jesus used the baptism ritual to indicate the opposite of what He really wanted. But, the problem with that theory is that its not of traditional church teaching. In truth, its been covered-up more than anything else. Plus, its not of intelligent theory. Its like saying churches that display crosses do it to show the opposite of what religion they represent. Maybe theyre really Muslims. Or, like McDonalds displaying their arches to tell people that theyre not really McDonalds, theyre Burger King, or a shoe store. Its like the Pope today wearing the Playboy bunny logo, so to somehow express his opposition to pornography, saying This symbol we shall follow but not say anything further. People arent going to think he meant to follow the opposite. (Or, many would spin it saying the Pope is just supporting rabbits, and/or male children at the playground.) But, the pathetic thing is, people will just believe whatever James Dobson says. I cant even find a listing for Cotytto in any Bible dictionary to indicate how the following of Baptism shows the opposite of its previous (and, then current) religious meaning. If youre Jesus, and you assign Baptism to mean the opposite of what you really want, then you need to say its the opposite of what you really want. Otherwise, the intelligent and honestassumption will remain. Its like if Jesus just drank a glass of wine, it wouldnt mean much; but, if Jesus made wine into a Christian symbol or ritual, e.g., then itd be supporting the parallel deity of wine: Dionysus. Coversely, sometimes it doesnt make any sense why Jesus like cursed the fig tree, until you find that the fig festival of Nonae Caprotinae honored Juno, the goddess of marriage. Exposure of the Antichrist: According to Christ, what most clerics will now do is actually forsake Christ to satisfy their own anti-sex agenda, and/or to simply save face. Oh theyll still use the name Christ for income purposes, but they wont preach the correct truth. I tell you, those lies, including not correcting errors, will not only prevent you from entering the Kingdom of Heaven, but will entail much further Fair Afterlife Punnishment (Matt. 5:25-26; 7:13-27; 25:32-46), regardless of your cop-out beliefs (James 2:20). In the meantime, just keep on Baptising people, ya hear? If Cotytto was the goddess of marriage or sex only in marriage, mainstream church leaders would disseminate it 100%. Instead they continue to condemn the innocent.

As Paul Harvey would say: Now you know the rest of the story. And, nows the time to question your religious leaders on this subject.
