The Wrong Turn Taken

by Luther Williams

THE FOLLOWING comparison between the ancient European religions and Christianity is quite illuminating.


EUROPEAN PAGANISM


CHRISTIANITY

Strong ideals of heroism and gaining fame by deeds. Eternal life is the memory of your actions by your descendants throughout the ages.



Shuns individual importance. Deeds are rejected for “faith”. Eternal life is just a reward for believing.






Expect greatness. Emphasis on cultivating wisdom, strength, beauty, health and overcoming.

Elevates mediocrity.

“The meek shall inherit the Earth” (Matthew 5:3-5)

“God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world, the despised things, and the things that are not, to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.”
(1 Corinthians, 20 and 26-29.)

Aristocratic.

Anti-Aristocratic. Hatred of Elite.



Eugenic thought. Only those who demonstrate quality deserve to live.

Dysgenic thought. Everyone deserves to live, no matter their quality.


Strong kinship bonds. “The family, the tribe, and the blood are first”.

“If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers, sisters, and even their own life, such a person cannot be my disciple.” (Luke 14:26.)


Man is noble by nature.

Man is a sinner by nature. (Psalm 51:5) (Romans 5:12) (1 John 1:8) (Confiteor).

Emphasis on honor and pride.

Honor and pride are rejected in favor of mercy, humility and guilt. Honor and pride cannot exist because everyone is sinner.



There is no fear to the Gods. You are not their slave.

You have to fear god and give blind submission to him. You are a slave of Christ. 
(Ephesians 6:6)




Inherently Ethno-Nationalist, Identitarian and Racial-Realist. Paganism is the religion/worldview of the Folk. Race is the only bond.

Inherently Internationalist, Globalist, Universalist and Egalitarian. 
“All we are equal in Christ”. (Galatians 3:28.) regardless race. Faith is the only bond. All who are of the Christian faith, be they Black, Asian or White, are better and more valuable to it than a White who is not a Christian.


Vitalistic. In harmony with Life and Nature. Nature is sacred. Sexuality and instincts are appreciated as divine gifts. 

Nihilistic. In opposition to Life and Nature (Philippians 3:8) (1 John 2:15). You are given the “true life” only after death. Sexuality and instincts are despised as “earthy and mundane”.



The body and the spirit; material world and spiritual world are complementary and closely united as two faces of the same thing.


The body and the spirit; material world and spiritual world are separated, mutually exclusive and opposed.


Emphasis on self sufficiency.

“All things are possible with god”.


Promotes self-defense.

“Where you recongnize evil, speak out against it and give your enemies no peace.” (Hávamal, 127)


Promotes self-loathing.

“Love your enemies” (Matthew 5:44) “Do not resist evil” (Matthew 5:38-42),

Tends to unity among Europeans. No other pagans are heretic, whether Germanic, Greek, Celtic or Slav.

Tends to division among Europeans. “Other Christians, who don’t follow the same kind of Christianity as I do, are wrong and heretical”.


The ultimate expression of pagan Europe was not the religion(s) of Zeus or Odin or the like in themselves. From those Olympian beginnings, the greatest philosophies the world has ever seen evolved — the Stoicism of Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius being merely one. The rise of an increasingly Cosmotheist point of view among Renaissance and Romantic and scientific thinkers is a part of that evolution. And Cosmotheism itself is its ultimate expression.

What the Jews fear and detest the most is the Ethno-centrism (life force, superior evolutionary survival) of other races, not their own, that is because Ethno-centrism is power and they only want it for themselves , in order to dominate and subdue the nations that parasitize. Christianity (racially egalitarian, except Jews) is the opposite of Ethno-centrism, therefore it favors the parasite.
It all comes down to just three words for the parasite, POWER, MONEY AND CONTROL.
Conclusion: An Ethno-centric (Pagan) society will be strong, and healthy, therefore difficult to subdue. It attacks its Ethno-centrism and it will weaken therefore it will bend and submit.

Hmmm… Sounds like Christianity is strikingly similar and may very well be a mirror image of the repugnant social organization known as Communism.

I’m unable to reproduce it here, but Johann Chapoutot’s book, The Law of Blood: Thinking and Acting as a Nazi (Cambridge, MA: The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2018), reproduces a table (p. 71) from a National Socialist publication contrasting the values of National Socialism with the anti-values of Christianity, and it’s very much in line with the table in the article above. Summarizing National Socialist views on Jewish law, Chapoutot writes (pp. 72-75): Jews were beings of abstraction, for they hated what was real. This hatred had led them to invent artifice, to take refuge in what did not exist, in phantasmagoria confabulated in their poor sick heads. It was the Jews who had written the laws: they were the “people of the Law” because they were incapable… Read more »

The pagan side sounds good if you are born into an “aristocratic” family. If not, forget it—you will not be accepted no matter what you do. Stuart Wilde, the urban mystic, said just a few years ago that this is true in Europe even today, regardless of what they say. If you are an atttactive peasant woman, though, the nobles will court you for a sexmate, until they find a suitable noble woman, they you will be dropped out of their life forever. The nobility, honor and pride was only among the nobles—they did not extend it to everyone else, who were peasants and craftsmen. And “paganism promotes unity” among Europeans? Not among the Romans and the Celts, or the Romans and the Carthaginians, or the Athenians and the Trojans.… Read more »

I suppose the issue is whether one was a good pagan, good Christian, or good Catholic. Henry VIII (Robert Shaw) reportedly sought a papal dispensation to divorce his aging wife Catherine of Aragon whom he– as the “historian’s” story goes– was not able to bear him a son, and marry his mistress Anne Boleyn.

On marrying outside one’s race, mulattos if you will, aside from confused cultural norms regarding fidelity, service, <a href="social distance“>social distance, what-have-you, there is the appearance factor– appearance that may revert to the mean statistically speaking. It remains to be seen whether the Dutchess will remain with the Prince or leave him as Judy left Bo.

To the Southern “bathed in the blood of jee-zus” Christian,
this essay would be like water on a duck’s back. They are
hopeless and are a total waste of valuable time.

I’ll take this article as counterbalance to all the christian propaganda (church yeah, pagan ugh), but it should be noted, that both sides had positive and negative effects on Whites. Even some of the worst things the Catholics did came out quite great for us later: The conquering of the Saxons by Charlemagne and the subsequent forced intermarriage and movement of the peoples in the core of Europe. It sounds bad, was brutal and inconsiderate, but it cracked open the tribal societies genetically and this outbreeding over many generations made the people of the Carolingian kingdom curious, increased IQ, decreased tribal urges (and thereby enabled the ideas of fairness, of impartiality, of objectivity), laying the groundwork for the industrial revolution and the modern state. We are now some 50 generations… Read more »

I’m moderately well-read and somehow I am not seeing that Whites were incurious and of low IQ before the wonderful unintentional outbreeding project imposed by insane, bloodthirsty, hypocritical religionists.
