Re: How to justify pagan roots? Miss Honeychurch

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

Isn't wondering about Pagan roots of Christianity somewhat like asking what comes first, the chicken or the egg. I always thought that Christ was the God of the Old Testament, that Christianity began with Adam, and pagan / idol worship evolved away from. The real root of Christianity dates back farther than Osiris. The fact that all influences are felt, may have more to do with tradition than religion. For instance, in most cultures, you can retain the culture and still worship. There are many cultural practises that don't go along with Christianity, but not all.

So, my opinion is that we do not have to justify pagan roots, because they are just a branch off the main. I believe there has never been a moment in time that the earth was left completely void, without a branch of true Christianity, rooted firmly in Jesus Christ, whether on the earth, or in the earth, in the Americas or in Europe, Asia, or isles of the sea. It has always been somewhere. Aside from this, the language of symbolism should not be confused with idol worship, but I really don't know what it is you are referring to when you say pagan roots. What time period did this originate? Don't all christians accept Jesus Christ (part of trinity) as the God of the Old Testament? Don't they beleive Adam and Eve were Christians? That they spoke with Jesus Christ in the Garden of Eden? Just wondering.
