An article in today’s paper caught my eye: Neopaganism growing quickly, about the resurgence and growth of such pagan nature religions as druidism and witchcraft. The newspaper article claims paganism is the fastest growing religion in America, Canada, and Europe today, with the numbers of adherents doubling every 18 months.
The comments, though, on this article is what is really interesting. The pagans themselves discuss why the traditional American religion of Christianity is on the decline (many of the pagans identify themselves as former Christians or raised in the Christian church), some giving reasons that the “patriarchy” of Yahweh is less free than the “matriarchy” of their goddess … the ancient Canaanites agreed with them. Some say that paganism is a more ancient religion than Christianity, as Christianity is based on sun worship. We have discussed the connection in detail here.
This is why God is calling His people out of Babylon, to return to the religion of the Scriptures, not the Roman church.
