Hebrew Anglo-Saxons? — Medieval Conversion Tactics

by Survive the Jive

ANGLO-SAXON and Jewish people were [and are — Ed.] very different! One was a polytheistic group of Germanic warrior tribes in northern Europe and the other was a monotheistic Semitic tribe in the Middle East. Yet, for the Anglo-Saxons to convert to Christianity, they had to accept the Hebrews of the Old Testament as the “chosen people” of the “one true God” — and this would not have seemed like an attractive prospect to them.

Therefore, those who wished to convert the Anglo-Saxons to the Semitic religion used clever techniques were used in Old English translations of Biblical and other Christian stories (Judith, Andreas, and Exodus) in order to make the Israelites seem more like Germanic warriors, and to make the pagans of Egypt and Assyria seem like Viking pagans.

This was good, and I would like to get his take on “the Heliand” or Anglo-Saxon Gospel.

Christianity was spread with fire and sword. The first religion to convert on the pain of death. Romans called it the ‘new superstition’. It infuses itself into horror stories, paranormal activity and anything that goes down. The Jew god to the rescue.

Demon is a Christian invention.

“Sinistrari was a French theologian of the sixteenth century who wrote of an order of beings between humans and angels. He called them demons and associated them with the elemental nature of earth, air, fire and water.”

I think it was Dan Barker who said that his neighbors ignored him and walked on his lawn. He was very angry, so he took his own son down into the cellar and tortured him. Since then he has forgiven his neighbors, and shown grace toward them.

Horace (65 BCE – 8 BCE) said it first: Ridicule often settles matters of importance better and with more effect than severity.

Seneca (4 BCE – 65 CE) followed: Ridicule often cuts the (gordian) knot more effectively than the severity of satire.

Then, attributed to Pontifex Maximus Ben Klassen (1917 CE -1993 CE): It takes faith to believe in [Yahweh] just like it takes faith to believe in the Easter Bunny — but at least the Easter Bunny is based on a creature that actually exists.

People have too often accepted as historical fact the Christian model of the conversion of the Northern European peoples. This is the Christian model: (1) Heathen belief, followed by (2) Conversion, ushering in (3) Christian belief. But here is what actually happened: (1) Heathen belief => (2) First introduction of Christianity => (3) Period of christianized heathenism => (4) Formal conversion => (5) Period of heathenized Christianity => (6) Christian belief. Thus, in one Icelandic saga, we are told of a man who worshipped Christ when he was on land, but at sea he worshipped Thor, because when sailing he needed a “stronger god.” It was not a matter of one faith or the other, but of elements of the two mixed together. One technique used in making the Semitic… Read more »

Both the Catholic and Orthodox brands of Christianity clearly teach that the jews have been lopped off the chosen vine and the christians have been grafted on. The zio-Christians believe the jews are still chosen and are going to convert any day now. Sure, suckers. How convenient for the money borrowers.
