catholic church is pagan and has always been pagan, never at one point budging from its completely pagan stance... As is protestantism. Christianity
is paganism. The only Christians that remotely represented and did honor to the hebraic tradition it was born from are the puritans - and we see how
reviled and parodied they are by todays culture....
Oh, please! I am a Pagan, and I take offence at being called equal to these fundamental religious types. The study of the Occult Teachings showed this
writer very clearly the chains of organized religion in general, and the lies of the church became very clear indeed to me. What the Christians do is
loosely based on ancient Pagan practices and Rituals, I will agree with, most especially the Blood Ritual called "Communion," and the fact that when
they raise energy it is confined in a building, and perhaps released to an entity they know not. The funniest thing I came across in my studies is
this: Even the blackest Black Magick spells are completely filled with references and petitions to Jesus to help and protect the
Practitioner/Operator as he/she performs, and protect them from whatever Demon they are calling up. Read carefully, it seems like Christians Priests
wrote the thing in the first place, for in ancient times, before Christ, there was no Jesus yet, right? Some, at least, of the Biblical Heroes were in
fact practitioners of Magick, the "Abracadabra" spell can be traced back to Moses, used to dispel fever, and is included in
The Sword Of Moses
One of the fascinating magical traditions is the 6th and 7th books of Moses. Moses is credited with writing the Pentateuch, the first five books of
the Bible. These books are alleged to have been written in addition to the Pentateuch. A cursory glance will show why they are not included in the
canon of the bible: they deal with the conjuration of spirits and commanding them to do one's bidding. In these books, we see Moses portrayed as an
astute Magus (practitioner of Magick) who commands spirits to do his bidding. Seals are provided for the magical tasks he performed prior to the
exodus, the plagues he brought upon Egypt, as well as conjurations for the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire which led the Israelites through the
That Moses should have this knowledge is not unusual as he was raised as a Prince of Egypt, and as such, he was privy to knowledge that was kept
closely guarded from the general population. Solomon was another. The "wise King was also a a High Magick practitioner, and had full dominion over 72
"demons" whom he was said to command to mine for gold in Africa, and to build the First Temple.
So to call the average Catholic or Christian a "Pagan" is basically an insult to Pagans and Wiccans everywhere.
