Nothing in Christianity is original.....

In reply to How to justify pagan roots?, posted by Miss Honeychurch on January 7, 2004, at 8:34:12

this is a quote from a book named "The Da Vinci Code".
"Historians still marvel at the brilliance with which Constantine converted the sun-worshipping pagans to Christianity. By fusing pagan symbols, dates, and rituals into the growing Christian traditions, he created a kind of hybrid religion that was acceptable to both parties".
"Transmogrification, the vestiges of pagan religion in Christian symbology are undeniable. Egyptian sun disks became the halos of Catholic saints. Pictograms of Isis nursing her miraculously conceived son Horus became the blueprint for our modern images of the Virgin Mary nursing Baby Jesus. The pre-Christian God Mithras-called the Son of God and the Light of the World-was born on December 25, died, was buried in a rock tomb, and then resurrected in three days. ...December 25 is also the birthday of Osiris, Adonis, and Dionysus. The newborn Krishna was presented with gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Even Christianity's weekly holy days was stolen from the pagans."
This passage is on page 232 of the book.
This is a very interesting book about religion.

So you see there's nothing new under the sun.

If you feel it is an important belief for yourself then explore it...see what's real and what's myth.
There is nothing wrong with embracing a myth if it nourishes your mind, body, and spirit.
