Secret organisation dedicated to the worship of its head and master, Satan and to working for the overthrow of the Christian Church and Christian civilization. Its rituals of worship are believed to be characterized by all that is most evil and depraved they include human sacrifice, cannibalism and depraved sexual orgies where all the rules of incest and social custom are ignored. Versions of this belief are held by many twentieth-century Christians all over the world, more particularly m the Protestant denominations, and most of all in the fundamentalist and charismatic sects. Some people who do not see themselves as Christian at all may also hold variants of this belief.
There were four different languages employed when talking about paganism in nineteenth-century Europe. One assumed it to be a religion of savages, characterized by animal and human sacrifice and a superstitious dread of idols it was used mainly to describe tribal beliefs and some Hindu traditions in the contemporary world, but these were commonly projected back onto prehistoric Europeans. In addition, it was often applied to the temple-based religions of the ancient Near East and North Africa. This language strengthened dunng the century, under the impact of reports generated by increasing European missionary work in the tropics, and evolutionary theory. The latter made it easy to portray this brutish paganism as the lowest form of religion, from which European humanity had ascended as part of a general progression of knowledge and manners, aided (for the pious) by divine revelation. The second language did not conflict with the first, but represented a different emphasis within the...
Multiplied in the hands of the Apostes who distributed them to the people by the command of their Master, these miraculous loaves were a symbol and an acted prophecy of that living bread, far more mysterious, which these same Apostles, and the priests, their successors, should be one day charged to distribute to all Christian people. Overcome with admiration at the sight of this great miracle, they said among themselves, This is of a truth the Messiah whom we look for. Labor not, said the Lord to them, for the meat which perisheth, but for that which endureth unto life everlasting, which the
The colours of the fairies' dresses were due to dyes, produced and used like those still employed in country places. The number of indigenous plants from which dye-stuffs are obtained is surprisingly large, such plants are to be found in all parts of the British Isles and the dyes cover the whole range of colour. Lichens give very fine dyes, red, yellow and blue besides these, other plants and trees have been in use from time immemorial and dyes are still made from their roots, bark, leaves and fruit. All combinations of colour and shade can be made by mixing the dyes, but it is perhaps worth noting that there is no record of yellow being worn by the fairies blue, black, green, and a little red, were the chief colours. Green was the favourite colour, the reason, probably being that the fairies were originally hunters, and green made them less visible to their quarry. Later, when they themselves were hunted, green was the best colour in which to move unobserved in a forest or to lie...
By constant use the idea of an I attaches itself to foreign drops of seed and blood, although the thing exists not. then why should I not conceive my fellow's body as my own self That my body is foreign to me is not hard to see. I will think of myself as a sinner, of others as oceans of virtue I will cease to live as self, and will take as my self my fellow-creatures. We love our hands and other limbs, as members of the body then why not love other living beings, as members of the universe By constant use man comes to imagine that his body, which has no self-being, is a self why then should he not conceive his self to lie in his fellows also Thus in doing service to others pride, admiration, and desire of reward find no place, for thereby we satisfy the wants of our own self. Then, as thou wouldst guard thyself against suffering and sorrow, so exercise that spirit of helpfulness and tenderness towards the world
Secretary at the coven meetings, at which he recorded the oaths of allegiance to Satan kissing the Devil's anus (see kiss of shame) and making a DEVIL'S pact falling into ecstasies and trances, during which his spirit was transported to various mountains bewitching a man to have a spell of lunacy once every 24 hours because he loved the same woman as Fian attempting to seduce the woman by bewitching her, but instead bewitching a heifer that followed him about leaping and dancing . . . to the great admiration of all the townsmen of Saltpans robbing graves for body parts to use as CHARMS and various acts of magic, such as FLYING through the air. He was also accused of putting magical CANDLES on the legs of his horse and upon his staff, which enabled him to turn night into day as he rode.
Even though many men, Caesar Augustus i.e., Nero , have tried in their lives to pass on a large body of marvelous information, no one has been able to bring his promises to fulfillment because fate's darkness clouds the perception. I believe that I alone of all men from the beginning of our epoch have achieved something that is marvelous and understood by few. 2. I embarked on a project that went beyond the measure of human nature, and after many ordeals and hazards I brought it to a proper conclusion. 3. For I studied grammar in Asia and, outstripping everyone there, I persisted until I should get some benefit from the field. 4. Then I sailed to the highly desirable city of Alexandria with a great deal of money and studied with the most accomplished men of letters. I won praise from all for my perseverance and insight. 5. I went continually to the schools of the methodist physicians, for I was extraordinarily keen on this field. 6. When it was time to return home, my medical studies...
Other less ritualistic Christian sects utilize prayer and music to whip up a veritable brew of personal power to attune with that of the divine. Operators of revival meetings and charismatic Christian preachers know these secrets well, and effectively use them to elevate the consciousness of their followers to a high spiritual state.
Hephaestus, Greek god of fire and metal-work, was thrown from Mount Olympus by his father Zeus because he took the part of his mother Hera in a quarrel as a result of the fall, he became lame. He created armour, weapons and jewels for the gods in his workshop beneath the volcanic Mount Etna, in Sicily, and as a reward was given Aphrodite as his unwilling bride. He was among the least charismatic of the gods, but his Roman counterpart, Vulcan, fashioned Jupiter's thunderbolts.
