Going Along With Current-Day Religious Definition Of PaganThe pagans were the followers of Horus.
Horus is one of the Gods who Jesus was modeled after. (BB 305/317) Since religions of today like to call Egyptian religion heathen and pagan, we will go along with them for now and just list some ways these religions are contradictions of First Truth. 1. The Christian cross existed before Christianity. The Christian cross existed before Egyptians created the original version of Christianity. The Egyptians took their spiritual practices and put them into an easier to understand form for the Greeks and Romans during their invasions of Egypt. The Christian cross is Egyptian, thus pagan and heathen. (NG1 433/451) 2. Ancient Egyptian imagery had been continued by the Christians who knew not what heathens they had been all along; heathen in origin, doctrines, and typology. When they did wake up to the facts, one by one they tried to get rid of the proofs, or keep them concealed. A lot of these facts are hidden in the catacombs of the Roman Christian Catholic Church. By this then we know the mountain of secrets Rome has hidden underground must crumble under its own weight and not just some papal paper apologies. (NG1 442/460) 3. As Emerson said, “a good symbol is a missionary to convince thousands.” When Europe was first converted to Christianity, it was by making use of the same symbols that were hallowed to the "Pagan" Cult. (NG1 11-2/29-30) 4. The “Pagan” imagery was not even taken intelligently, it was only inherited ignorantly. (NG1 451/469) 5. In the information hidden in the catacombs of Rome is shown the remains of the "pagan" past taking life as the divinity of the new. The young priests of the "pagan" gods wore a diadem, or bandeau around their heads. This was copied in the depictions of Apollo (wreath) and of Jesus (crown of thorns).(NG1 497/515) 6. The halo of Christ is the glory of the sun god seen in his phantom phase when the more physical type had become psychotheistic. Hence, it is worn by the child-Christ as the karast mummy. It is the same halo that illumined Horus and Iu-emhept, Krishna and Buddha, and others of whom the same old tales of deliverance and redemption were told and believed. (NG2 481/489) 7. The Christ is a popular figure of “Pagan” origin who in human form was the portrait and image of a dozen different gods. (NG1 480/488) 8. How was it then that the religion of the ignorant overturned and superseded that of the learned? One explanation is because the ancient wisdom had been concealed; because the mysteries were confined to secrecy; because the hidden gnosis was only communicated in secret, and the initiates received it under the seal of secrecy. The religion or mystery was doomed to die of the secrecy in which it had been self-enshrouded. It was buried alive with its own seal on its own mouth. It was an unpublished religion. And when the new sect put forth the same dogmas, doctrines, tenets under the same types, accompanied by the same rites and ceremonies, they became the first publishers of the ancient religion with a new interpretation of the Christ made flesh. (NG2 497-8/505-6) 9. The ark that rested on Mount Nizir in the Babylonian legend, or Mount Ararat in the Hebrew version, and on Mount Manu in the Hindu account, is described in the Ritual as the “ship of Ra” which attains “the highest place of the ark in heaven,” with the mount of glory for anchorage and the pole for mooring-post. (AE2 553/17) 10. A Hindu who was shown the symbolical pictures of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John with their respective man, lion, ox and eagle, explained these in accordance with his own system of divine totemism as the avatars or Vahans of the four evangelists, because they represented the universal types of the four quarters. (NG1 414/432) 11. When the story of the Christian Messiah was first told to the natives of New Zealand, the missionaries and the Maoris were equally amazed to find the likeness of Jesus to the character of Tawhaki, a Messiah already known to them, of whom the selfsame incidents were related as those now retold of the later Christ. The connection between Tawhaki and Osiris (or Horus) is shown by his death having been effected by the reptile gods, the Apophis and conspirators in the Ritual. The Buddhist is able to prove that the history of Jesus is one with that of Buddha, called Gautama. This is not mere parallel but identity. Such history cannot be personally true twice over, once in India and once in Judea. Not was the gospel narrative drawn from Buddhist sources any more than the Buddhist was derived from the Christian. Both had a common origin as mythos, but not as human history. Astronomical mythology claims and accounts for thirty thousand years of time at least; and this alone goes down to the source of the whole matter; this only can explain the relationships found on the surface by an original identity at root. The transformation of the ancient religion into the new was made with sufficient secrecy to imply consciousness. The sloughing was chiefly out of sight, but the real truth of the origins must have been concealed among the secrets of the management in Rome. (NG2 498/506)
