Christianity is a pagan religion.

Christianity has pagan roots and is still to this very day a disguised form of paganism.

Despite the lofty claims of religious zealots, Christianity comes from less glorious roots than many authoritarians would have us believe.

Monotheism began in Egypt 2,500 years BC in the time of Akhenaten. This is where we get the Christian cross image from which was formerly the Sun God Ra’s symbol which was subsequently adopted by Christians some 2,800 years later.

Most Christian prayers end with the word - Amen, which is Amen - the Egyptian God of creation.

Thus, all Christians are really just pagan sun worshippers. :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

How do you define ‘pagan’?
What is the alternative to a pagan religion?
Which ones are non-pagan?

Please cite the evidence that the word amen refers to the Egyptian god.

  1. Paganism is a term that developed among the Christian community of southern Europe during late antiquity to describe religions other than their own or Judaism. Throughout Christendom it continued to be used, typically in a derogatory sense. In the nineteenth century it was re-adopted as a self-descriptor by members of various artistic groups inspired by the ancient world. In the twentieth century it came to be applied as a self-description by practitioners of contemporary Pagan, or Neo-Pagan religious movements.
    There has been much scholarly argument as to the origins of the term Paganism. Paganism has also been understood by some to include any non-Abrahamic religions, but this is generally seen as insulting by adherents of those religions. While Paganism is often considered to exclude monotheism, and to express a worldview that is pantheistic, polytheistic, or animistic, there are some monotheistic Pagans.[1] Once monotheistic religions such as Christianity and Islam started to become more prominent (in processes known as Christianization and Islamization), names to encompass polytheistic worshipers started to develop; some of these include Hellene, Pagan, and Heathen, and at times these names were used as slurs.

  2. Any religion which doesn’t worship animals, objects and idols.

  3. There is really no alternative to pagan religion because there are really no gods.

Christianity or Judaism? Christianity is an offshoot of Judaism. And while it is easy to see the pagan influence in Judaism (Try reading Herman Melville’s Moby Dick and then the first five books of the Old Testament, sometimes called “The First Book of Moses”), Christianity seems to have been an attempt to temper the paganistic practices of Judaism with a more philosophical theology.

If this figure Jesus of Nazareth ever even existed, I suspect that he was radically different from the highly Romanized accounts we have of him in these stories that were written long after his crucifixion.

Give credit where credit is due. This notion that Moses was a priest of Akhenaten, and later expelled after the death of Akhenaten originally comes from Freud, in his book Moses and Monotheism:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akhenaten … monotheism

As the article points out, some believe that Moses is a fictionalized version of Akhenaten. Also, Ahkenaten’s reign was more in the 1300 BC range, not 2500 BC, which would mean there could have potentially been some Hebrews already living in Egypt at the time of his reign. As for the cross, it is a common enough symbol in ancient cultures to have been in the “public domain” by the time of Jesus, and I suspect its symbolic significance had more to do with the Crucifixion than any long forgotten Egyptian gods in the time of Jesus.

Akhenaten worshipped the sun god Aten, and claimed to be the son of Aten. Amun-Ra is another Egyptian deity, who got pushed aside when Akhenaten tried to introduce monotheism. There is some speculation that it was the powerful priests of Amun-Ra who had Akhenaten murdered and his monotheistic practices thrown out. As for the Christian word amen, at the end of each prayer, it is Latin, and means “so be it”.

You’ll need to make a better argument than this before concluding that Christians are really sun worshipers.

what are you pp1…I worship the sun

By your definition(s), pagan means non-Abrahamic. Therefore Christianity, which associates itself with the God of Abraham, regardless of where some of its practices may have originated, is expressly ]not pagan - is, in fact, the quintessence of not-pagan.

The definition of religion is worship; all religions make some reference to animals [lamb of god, the holy ghost represented as a dove] but do not necessarily make them objects of worship [the Greek, Roman and Norse gods, e.g. are all humanoid]; all but Islam have idols - and if you count that big rock and their holy book, not even Islam is exempt.

The non-factuality of its content has never been, and cannot be, an obstacle to the success of a religion. Indeed, the non-existence of its focal sacred entity is the basis of faith and a major component in the aetiology of all religion.

IOW - What difference does it make that modern religions evolved from ancient ones? Of course they did - along with the people who practice them.

  1. Jesus the fisher of men. The fish symbol of Christianity. The fish being the sign of Pisces. Jesus being a symbol of the precession of Pisces. The ram (Aries) being the symbol of Mosses. Thus, we have the zodiac relationship of Christianity.

  2. The 12 disciples of Jesus which represents the 12 signs or cycles of the zodiac.

  3. The Christ and all holy figures are represented with solar halos over their heads.

  4. Christmas is celebrated on the 25th of December which is the precession of the sun.

  5. 23rd to 25th of December the sun ‘dies on the cross’. and is reborn 3 days later. That means Southern Cross. The Southern Cross points to the sun rise on the 25th of December in the Northern Hemisphere.

Are you serious?

Amun, Amun-Ra, Amun-Re, Amon, or Amen

Note- The God Amen is holding the Christian cross in his hand. This image is 4,000 years old.

The Hebrew “[size=150]אמנ[/size]” (Amen) means “May the spirit be manifest”.

…and the Egyptian ankh is NOT the Christian cross.

No but the Pope does have the sign of Horus on his robes… and the labours of Hercules on his Papal throne… and the Egyptian fish head crown… and most of the obelisks from Egypt are in Vatican city… and the star of David (which is not really Jewish) on his crown… and they built all of the major cathedrals on pagan grounds…

Let’s just say I respectfully disagree with the official position on that words origin…

The Catholic Church was specifically intended to be a union of spirituality and the final resolve.

And let’s just say that you disrespectfully accept any anti-Christian hokum that comes along.

What part of what I said was hokum? Are you a Christian?

I apologize. Looking back, I see that I was reading Platopussy’s posts as yours.

No problem.

This is all likely akin to something in psychology they call apophenia: the tendency to see patterns where no pattern exists. But let’s assume you’re on to something here. So where does Apollo (Greek god of the sun) fit into all of this? And by your own logic, did not NASA and MGM conspire to revive the cult of Apollo, with The Wizard of Oz (1939), and the Apollo moon missions? And isn’t the movie actually a complex construct of symbolism, foreshadowing the lunar landings and combining the symbolism of the Roman god of the sun with Jesus Resurrection symbolism? (It’s complicated, but I can explain it, if need be.)
