A few Quotes from Occultists who actually believe this nonsense (& there are MANY of them, which is why you now see occult symbolism everywhere in these latter days):

“Symbolism is the language of the Mysteries … By symbols men have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the limitations of language. Rejecting man-conceived dialects as inadequate and unworthy to perpetuate divine ideas, the Mysteries thus chose symbolism as a far more ingenious and ideal method of preserving their transcendental knowledge. In a single figure a symbol may both reveal and conceal, for to the wise the subject of the symbol is obvious, while to the ignorant the figure remains inscrutable.”Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, p. 20


“All occult symbolism is in fact dualistic in meaning or interpretation, in that, it has an exoteric or outward meaning (known to the masses) and an esoteric or hidden meaning (known only to the elect few). Occultist Fredrick Goodman in his book ‘Magical Symbols’ (p. 6) explains: “The true magic symbol is an image which hides an inner meaning.” Source: Secrets of Masons


In contrast, the Lord says:

“Let no man deceive you with vain words [or symbols, I might add]: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. … And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. … But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.”Ephesians 5:6-13.
