Christinaity’s Sin

Not only does Paganism pre-date the man-made religion of Christianity, but many aspects of paganism were stolen and re-branded to suit man’s new agenda for control of the masses.

Christian’s major disagreement with Paganism is their belief in more than one God. This directly contradicts their doctrine of worshiping only one Lord, the first of ten commandments (from man). It’s interesting to note that the polytheistic gods directly link to our emotions regarding a vast array of different subjects: physical things, properties, and states of being. Literally, the gods were events and things that happened, how they happened, and why they happened. These gods were all true, real, and undeniable – but did not fit into the Christian’s anthropomorphism of God. Paganism was a formed basis that allowed man to live with earth as one, and not be restricted.

A major principle Christianity is founded upon is the use of restriction. The most notable factor of Christianity is their use of the ten commandments, which they claim as “orders from god”. They then use our very strong emotion of fear by telling us that by breaking these laws, we will be condemned. Christianity’s restriction of sin is essential to their success, as they do argue somewhat validly that sins can lead to pain and suffering. However, suffering is very real and should not be ignored or denied, as it will eventually surface in different forms through out ones life. It cannot be contained and it will bear it’s teeth. How often do you learn of major “evils” committed by persons believed to be noble and honorable? Often. Sin must be experienced and sin must be conquered, else we will not advance beyond earth. This is our purpose of incarnation.

St. Augustine of Rome helped vastly expand the Christian church by teaching it’s clergy to utilize rhetorical philosophy, which until him had been widely regarded as ‘evil’ and ‘pagan’. He helped persuade the non-believers by the use of Aristotle’s five cannons, metaphors, and reasoning which he used to not show but force people to know that they were in fact already practicing Christianity. Many small cultures were instantly converted to Christianity, as they were allowed to simply proselytize their current beliefs and re-brand them as Christian.
