All Saints Day

Since November 1st has rounded the bend I wanted to give you, the reader, some food for thought.

Christianity is founded on the idea of there being One Almighty God, taking the form of three persons/entities/etc. : The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit.

Beyond that, they have Angels, Archangels, and Saints.

We are told that there are intercessors, this second group can be prayed to and then can direct this prayer request to God.

Why would God need an intermediary if He/She/It is all powerful, and all mighty?

The truth comes to my mind that if you are allowed to pray to something other than God, then you have created Demigods.

Christianity and Catholicism is not a monotheistic religion, it is polytheistic.  We replaced the previous pagan gods of the civilizations we conquered with a new hierarchy to make conversion easier on the new subjects.

So the question has to be asked: what did we lose when we gave up the gods of old?

 

Our Cultures and Our Heritage.
