Resolved Question: Am I a christo-pagan?
I feel more like myself now that I've found God/Jesus, but I also feel a strong connection to the supernatural and I like the use of using natural elements to calm and just listen to warnings and advise and my dreams and stuff.
I like both christianity but I like wicca [it's the only form of paganism i've known so far]... and is it normal to be christian but choose not to discuss the wicca/pagan with anyone who is not like minded?

Resolved Question: How the greek word -
how if Greeks have not the concept of Messiah?
maybe Jews will answer me: This is because Christianity is all a pagan story - Well, Greeks of that time weren't pagans - They weren't that spectacle of wordliness that were Babylon and Canaan and Rome... - they were very concerned by God - an invisible one - but they suffered that "invisibility". I want hear all opinions but just write them putting details - this is not a space for taunt the name of Jesus of Nazareth Fireball: I didn't say Christianity is pagan, I said I hope Jews said that and I said I was searching for deeper answers of the list of coincidences that they use to present - That is Khaganate: Sorry - when I said that about Jews I didn't referr to you, nor I think that it is a general thing of Judaism - Protestant critics towards Catholicism is how I have discovered that pattern of critics - me being a master of that -Catholic's thoughts about Jews are so superfitial...! too
I just said: Hebrews expected a Moshiah - not Greeks - so how had Greeks a word for traslate the hebrew term? If both "just mean" the annointed one" so I shoud study why is so important to be annointed - why is so important the oil? But that I will ask in another space Abdijah: Yours is a superfitial critic towards Catholicism - few lines and charged of hard critics. Paganism is not in Christianity because Paganism is wordliness and Christianity commands a wordly conduit that is dreadful for most people - but not because it is a powerful idole - but because God is who bounds in that pathetic way. Jehova's Witnessism says that Jesus is not God and that is maybe because so you have a space of "liberty" for try someday to build a new Babel - we Catholic cannot corrupt in that because we know that our God is always in the deepest - suffering the pass for the Hell. You would like that I said that Jehova's Witenesses are neo-worshipers of the pagan figure of the brave hero? (what was pagan of the Greek culture, not as their philosophy). Don't say empty discourses but put yourself in the situation that you say you believe in and you will see that it has no so much sense for condamn Catholics as Pagans--- Christ did that. He entered in Christ did that. He entered in the play for teach us. I hope not have offended you, but teach you something
I answered your answer because I said I wouldn't permet such superfitial saiths - let's dialogue traiting each other as serious people - not pagans Khaganate: Mine is a melange of questions. I thanks you for have made the effort for understand me. Your new answers helps me more. Yeah - how Greks received a word which is synonim of Mosshiah?If they had not the concept? And when they had that was a according to you a perveted (not fair) concept. So the Israelite was not the same concept of the Greeks - I use to be teached about the diversion (latin di-vertio escindition, one line goes to one place and the other to another place) by Jews and to talk say Jews: Let's us to dialogue day and night about: How the Second Person of the Trinity - the Son here - descended in a time when... how had the Providence and the genius of Mankind made an global order for the fondation of Christianity? This question is asking to you to addopt a Christian rationality - but for that I should first make you undersand why be Christian... I hope you undersand what I mean ;) Abdijah: I know there are many passages that teach that the truth and the lies will be evident - but there are other - I am sure - that say that there will be false profeths - with the figure of sheeps. In this case - what heard? the passages that say we had have clear evidences? or the passage that say we must be aware? what do? - Let's dialogue putting our heart on the table - because we could do terrible things using the Biblical literacy with a heart that is maybe perverted -
Sorry, in my last saith to you: I said that Jehova's... could be compared with neo-woshipers of the Hero because you see in Jesus not God but a person similair to Michael - That is like a figure of a hero - so you could be taking the way of those Pagan greeks that wrote the Illiade and all those pagan books - we Catholics have a concept of a Christ who showed us that the way is hard - there is not space for us to be heros here in the earth - I could say that - being superfitial- Who bound us catholi I could say that I SAID ABOUT JEHOVA'S... - being superfitial- (sorry by the capitals - but I wanted to say that I refered that and not what follows): Who bound us catholic to be idolaters of the same God (the Father of course-the Son-the Holy Spirit) is God himself who put an idole in his soreful body - The idoles that take outside Hebrews were not like Him - so one should be respectful - not call us idolaters. Let's us not to be idolaters and go to the basis of the phenomenon - let's go to the peace of the essences Melkha: Thanks! =) Now I undersand better what is the value of the anointed"ness". About you said after: I didn't mean Greek philosopers hadn't God. They had a sole God- point to us the theists the fact of the Philosopers have been worshipers of God - but they didn't worship those scandalous Deities of the Ancient Greek pantheon - they spoke about Zeus but this siglus's scholars (Fernando Rodríguez Adrados - the Athenian Democracy) say that they said: "Sinners created sinner gods, the gods are not like the Illiade was" (paraphrasis) - Jenophanes
what you refered then was the Antiochian souverains - I don't know about that so much - I should study- I never understandt why was so hard for Jews just a statue of a Pagan god in their Temple - I should learn of your wisdom - I just proposed to speak so consequently like you did - I didn't mean you Jews are not Sages - I am just saying:Put a staircase to us - not just critics. You have a great spir You have a great spirit ;)
Plato somewhere said something like: "We will never have the Truth is God Himself doesn't come Here to speak us" that is why I said Greeks (of that era) didn't like the invisibility of their God Mathew: Don't you see that you put just some little lines of information for my question? You explained me what the value of the oil is and that is so welcome. But you then repeat Judaism has no relation to those strange Greek thing, and you call us palm readers just because there is ONE passages of the NT that says something about that (I haven't read that passage), don't you see that you have into you most part of the arguments? Because this is not something for convince me: Repetition of the Jewish cathegoricism (that is our way and that is not like the most published thing) + Tell us palm readers just by a passage--- you give me the image of habit in an Ivory Tower - you have wisdom but nothing of that is visible for me, you are despective with me talking about ONE passage and you are so circumscribed in your position.
