Coronation of Mary; Slide 116

The people compensated by making Mary the Mother of Jesus a goddess, though everyone is careful not to admit it.  That would mean we were pagans for sure if we admitted to a female deity – and to a PANTHEON of gods.

But.  Christianity has pagan DNA — and that’s okay, we can handle it.

What IS this word DIVINE?

Think to yourself right now if you feel God-the-Father is divine. Seems reasonable — he’s an immortal being, created the universe, is all powerful.
Okay, now think if your instincts say Jesus is divine.  You know.  He’s a god.  Has supernatural powers, is always painted with a halo. He’s a very holy dude. Surely divine.
