Don’t Use His Name in Vain?

Where the Word “God” Comes From

We’ve been exploring the roots of Christianity and the top 3 religions Judeo / Christian / Muslim and how they are actually rooted and derived from the very pagan and heathen religions they allegedly denounce vehemently.  In the end the conclusion is always that Judaism / Christianity / Muslim are all simply variations on pagan religions and are simply popular pagan religions.  The fact they try to call themselves non-pagan is laughable when over and over, every major event these religions celebrate are directly stolen from pagan religions.  In the end, they are simply religions and not derived from any god they pretend to be from.

Speaking of god, how can you have a discussion on modern religions without knowing where the very word god came from?  You cannot.  So if we wish to discuss these religions let’s begin with the heart of all of these religions, the very being which they pretend to worship, god.  Just as before, the word god comes from… you guessed it… another pagan religion, the Hindu.  Unlike most other Americans, I have never considered Asian beliefs to ascend to the point of them being called religions.  They are more, Eastern Philosophies.  They are a way of thinking and living than they are, worshiping some obscure being that you have no control over and who in turns secretly controls your life.

Although the top three religions vehemently denounce these pagan religions, the very essence of their religion, god, the word, comes directly from these religions.  In fact, the top three religions did not have a word for god, until they heard it from these pagan religions.  Not only that, but the word, god, is a very recent invention and was not around when the three religions were formed and their “holy scriptures” were supposedly written. 

On a huge side note, the word god, when it is brought over into the top three religions, takes on a very masculine form and the being is seen as a man.  The original idea of the word god, was a gender neutral being.  Why do we think this matters?  Because it points out that man formulated the word god and the concept of god.  Because these societies are patriarchal, man centric, they then formulate the idea that god is a man.  They could not conceive of a being that is gender neutral.  The most important being in their entire society then, has to be a man, because it then means that men, the gender, are in command and always right.

Oxford English Dictionary:

“god (gρd). Also 3-4 godd. [Com. Teut.: OE. god (masc. in sing.; pl. godu, godo neut., godas masc.) corresponds to OFris., OS., Du. god masc., OHG. got, cot (MHG. got, mod.Ger. gott) masc., ON. goð, guð neut. and masc., pl. goð, guð neut. (later Icel. pl. guðir masc.; Sw., Da. gud), Goth. guÞ (masc. in sing.; pl. guÞa, guda neut.). The Goth. and ON. words always follow the neuter declension, though when used in the Christian sense they are syntactically masc. The OTeut. type is therefore *guđom neut., the adoption of the masculine concord being presumably due to the Christian use of the word. The neuter sb., in its original heathen use, would answer rather to L. numen than to L. deus. Another approximate equivalent of deus in OTeut. was *ansu-z (Goth. in latinized pl. form anses, ON. ρss, OE. Ós- in personal names, ésa genit. pl.); but this seems to have been applied only to the higher deities of the native pantheon, never to foreign gods; and it never came into Christian use.

 The ulterior etymology is disputed. Apart from the unlikely hypothesis of adoption from some foreign tongue, the OTeut. *gubom implies as its pre-Teut. type either *ghudho-m or *ghutó-m. The former does not appear to admit of explanation; but the latter would represent the neut. of the passive pple. of a root *gheu-.  There are two Aryan roots of the required form (both *glheu, with palatal aspirate): one meaning ‘to invoke’ (Skr. hū), the other ‘to pour, to offer sacrifice’ (Skr. hu, Gr. χέειν, OE. yéotan YETE v.). Hence *glhutó-m has been variously interpreted as ‘what is invoked’ (cf. Skr. puru-hūta ‘much-invoked’, an epithet of Indra) and as ‘what is worshipped by sacrifice’ (cf. Skr. hutá, which occurs in the sense ‘sacrificed to’ as well as in that of ‘offered in sacrifice’). Either of these conjectures is fairly plausible, as they both yield a sense practically coincident with the most obvious definition deducible from the actual use of the word, ‘an object of worship’.

Some scholars, accepting the derivation from the root *glheu- to pour, have supposed the etymological sense to be ‘molten image’ (= Gr. χυγόν), but the assumed development of meaning seems very unlikely.

Barnhart, Robert K (1995). The Barnhart Concise Dictionary of Etymology: the Origins of American English Words, page 323.

The earliest written form of the Germanic word god comes from the 6th century Christian Codex Argenteus. The English word itself is derived from the Proto-Germanic * ǥuđan. Most linguists agree that the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European form * ǵhu-tó-m was based on the root * ǵhau(ə)-, which meant either “to call” or “to invoke”.[4] The Germanic words for god were originally neuter—applying to both genders—but during the process of the Christianization of the Germanic peoples from their indigenous Germanic paganism, the word became a masculine syntactic form.[5]

The capitalized form God was first used in Ulfilas’s Gothic translation of the New Testament, to represent the Greek Theos. In the English language, the capitalization continues to represent a distinction between monotheistic “God” and “gods” in polytheism.[6][7] In spite of significant differences between religions such as Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, the Bahá’í Faith, and Judaism, the term “God” remains an English translation common to all. The name may signify any related or similar monotheistic deities, such as the early monotheism of Akhenaten and Zoroastrianism.

When used in English within a community with a common monotheistic background, “God” always refers to the deity they share. Those with a background in different Abrahamic religions will usually agree on the deity they share, while still differing on details of belief and doctrine—they will disagree about attributes of [the] God, rather than thinking in terms of “my God” and “your (different) God”.

So we can see quite a few things from just studying the origins of the word god.  First, that it is derived from pagan religions.  If your being of worship and the center of your religion is derived from a pagan concept, what does that make your religion?  If your being of worship is directly derived from idol worship, what does that make your religion?

I know these are heavy concepts to accept and probably, for some of you, grasp, but noone else talks about it, and you know us, we talk about things people are afraid to talk about.

Are we afraid god is going to strike us dead for talking “bad” about “him”?  Not in the least bit.  We think the modern religions got the teachings of their religion wrong.  It’s wrong in practice, and the concept was never embraced.  You cannot have a religion both teach about love, which all 3 do, and yet through the “religion” endorse slavery, murder, war, genocide.  That’s where the practice of the religion diverges or goes away from the teachings of the religion.

There is a saying, “Man is fallible, but God’s Word is infallible.”   Obviously whoever said that, did not scream that loud enough.  The religions have twisted the very ideas that they are pretending to worship.  They have used a message of hope and love to torture people with and render brilliant people dumb and killing themselves.  Millions of Africans were taught, worlwide that they must bow to the white man and discard all of their former names, beliefs, heritage, because “god” told them so and that “god” wants them to be slaves to white men.  And, what’s worse, the Africans did discard their own beliefs, heritage, names, history and lineage to bow down to the very “god” they were taught, put them in slavery, and they never went back to their own ways.

The top 3 religions are nothing more than religions.  They are nothing different than Voodoo, Hindu, Shinto, Osirian Worship etc.  They are simply religions.

Sunday: Give Me That Old Time Religion

What is Religion?

The people in America feel that everything they started is the newest, bestest, most special thing on the planet.  They also think that everything they started is the most pure and innocent.  But, the reality is that behind every idea in this country, someone is sitting in a grand hall somewhere, who actually started and sent their “people” out to get the people to make it popular.  Most times, it’s done simply for the love of money.  Take religion, for example.  Everyone thinks the country was started based on some innocent and moral Christian ideal.  It is not true in the least bit.  Oh, don’t get me wrong.  Telling elementary school kids that the pilgrims came to run from persecution is a great story, but it is not the truth, in the least bit.  America was started for money pure and simple.  But, we tell each other these lies so that we can feel better about ourselves.  You cannot sell, “land of the free, and home of the brave” if the truth is rich men were sent here to basically be lords and duke over huge tracts of land, we know now as states and from day one they wanted cheap labor, like the Mexicans we have today.  Back then, they were called indentured servants, and then slaves.

This notion that religion played a part in this country is so ingrained in people that they refuse to believe this country was a money venture then, and is still a money venture today.  Instead of slaves and indentured servants, we simply have the poor and middle class.  And, religion still keeps the masses upon masses of people from rising up and defeating the upper class and becoming masters of themselves.

Let’s look at religion for a second.  The entire foundation of this new country is a mere two centuries.  It is a drop in the bucket, in the history of man. Yet, Americans delude themselves with the opiate of religion telling themselves that they are better than other countries because we take care of our poor and have charity for the disabled.  It is so far from the truth, as to be not even conceivable that one could tell one self that.  Other countries truly take care of their poor and truly take care of their disabled.  The current administration passed a law stating that charitable donations are taxable to nearly every penny donated.  In other words, “give to charity and we’ll tax you”.  Apparently churches and charities don’t have enough money to lobby congress to get that repealed.  Oh, there’s that word money again.

The country is also sold on the marketing scheme that Christianity is the only religion on the planet that leads to this so called Heaven.  In fact, no other religion on the planet, today, has so many splinter groups.  Everyone wants to call themselves Christian and yet wants their way of being a “Christian”.  But, they all agree that other religions, definitely are not the way to get to Heaven.  The truth of the matter is, Christianity is just another religion among religions: Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Scientology, Sikhism, Taoism, Baha’i, Confucianism, Vodun, Asatru, Druidism, Goddess Worship, Wicca, Witchcraft, Caodaism, Damanhur Community, Deism, Druze, Eckankar, Elian Gonzalez religious movement, Gnosticism, Gypsies, Hare Krishna – ISKCON, Ifa, the religion of the Yoruba people of West Africa, Lukumi, Macumba, Mowahhidoon, Native American Spirituality, Rom/Roma/Romani/Rroma (a.k.a. Gypsies), Santeria, Satanism-The Church of Satan, Unitarian Universalist Symbol Unitarian-Universalism, The Creativity Movement (formerly called World Church of the Creator), The Yazidi branch of Yazdanism, Zoroastrianism.

For the most part, religion is a case of location and not a case of actual belief.  If you’re born in a certain country, for the most part, you’re going to have a state religion that everyone believes in.  Americans like to delude themselves that there is no state religion, while 75% of the country believes in Christianity.  Is that by accident?

According to David Barrett and team, there are 19 major world religious groupings in the world which are subdivided into a total of about 10,000 distinct religions. Of the latter, there were 270 religions and para-religions which had over a half million adherents in the year 2000 CE. Within Christianity, they have identified 34,000 separate groups (denominations, sects, individual unaffiliated churches, para-church groups, etc) in the world. “Over half of them are independent churches that are not interested in linking with the big denominations.”

Even considering a single religion, Christianity, within a single country, there are often thousands of individual “Christian confessions and denominations.” For example, Barrett et al. states that there are:

  • 4,684 groups in the U.S.
  • 3,364 in South Africa.
  • 2,079 in Nigeria.
  • 1,581 in Brazil.
  • 1,327 in South-central Asia.

Among other English-speaking countries, there are:

  • 828 groups in the UK.
  • 469 in Canada.
  • 267 in Australia
  • 175 in New Zealand.

 But, you might be asking yourself, what is the “true religion”.  Here’s a quote that might shock you:

“…just because you don’t bow on your knees and worship an idol or an invisible being, does not mean you are not a Satan worshiper. The worship of any other god (s) is the same thing. There are no other gods. They are demons and Satan is in control of them.” From the website http://www.exposingsatanism.org

I’m sure a lot of Christians would be horrified if they found that they were worshiping Satan all this time, all the while thinking they were being pure and holy.

Everyone wants to believe that they have the true religion.  But, what does “God” want?  Many have claimed that they have prayed and asked “God” and come to the conclusion that he told them to start a religion.

When people pray to God for enlightenment, most seem to conclude that their own religion and faith group is the true one. If people could access the will of God on this matter, then a vast majority of the world’s population — the folks who pray — would realize that their faith group was not the true one. They would gradually migrate to the true religion. There would eventually be only one religion and one tradition within that religion left standing. Otherwise, people would be rejecting the will of God. All the other 11,000 religions and their tens of thousands of denominations or traditions would be phased out.

Think about that for a second.  If we could pray to “God” and ask him what his true will would be, the Christian religion would be wiped out, Judaism wiped out, Islam wiped out and we’d be left with one world religion and only one sect of it.

In America we have marketing.  You cannot just be a Christian.  You HAVE to go and get your neighbor to be a Christian too.  Apparently, “God” needs help with people getting to believe in him.  Maybe, he’s not as powerful as Christians say he is.

It is illogical.

You cannot have both an ALL-POWERFUL “God” and yet he can’t convince the person next to you that they should believe in him?  Either he is not all-powerful and not a “God” at all, or your religion has no basis in a “God” to begin with.  Because, an all-powerful being does not need an ant like you to convince people that he is all-powerful.  The right conclusion then, is that you are caught up in a marketing scheme and your “religion” has no basis in actual fact.  It makes more logical sense that you are spreading your religion, and not a belief in “God”.  People seem to confuse their religion with reality.  If you say to them that, they believe in a religion and not believe in “God” they get very defensive.  In fact, they cannot divorce themselves from their religion.

For instance, if you said to a Jew to work out the logic behind “God” being the creator and making everything perfect, and “God’s” need for men to circumcise themselves, they would go into their religious diatribe and not give you any logical answer how the two can coexist.  If you said to a homosexual Christian how they could call themselves a Christian, when the religion itself has many many direct strictures about being homosexual, they would go into their personal beliefs and how they can be both homosexual and yet still try to belong to the religion.  If you said to a Christian to explain how the founder of their religion, Jesus, was a Jew and yet Christians have hated Jews for over 2,000 years and even slaughtered them left and right, they cannot.

For most Americans they have no idea that what they are worshipping is a religion and not actually “God”.  They have bought into some else’s marketing scheme and believe whole-heartedly that their religion is the one true religion and that ALL others are wrong.

The truth of the matter is, Christianity, Islam and Judaism are just a few religion in a vast sea of religions.  They are no more right than the other half a million religions around the world.  And, according to the scholar on satanism, they might all be simply a deception to get people to worship Satan instead.

And that’s good enough for me!)

Shall we sing a verse for Thor,
Though he leaves the maidens sore?

And she bit me on my … elbow
But she’s good enough for me!

There are those who practice Voodoo,
There are those who practice Voodoo,
I know I do, I hope you do –
It’s good enough for me.

Meeting at the Witching Hour

Folks are raising up the power
And that’s where I want to be.
