Llewellyn Publishing and Christian Segregationist Wolves in Pagan Sheep's Clothing

One participant at the International Festival of Golden Dawn Magicians, today informed us that another Golden Dawn order, the other party of the famous Golden Dawn trademark settlement agreement (here) claimed at Pantheacon 2013 that their order "is bringing Paganism into the Golden Dawn."

I was quite surprised by this odd claim, considering that the order in question is led by Llewellyn authors who also lead segregationist, "Christian only" esoteric orders. You can read more about this subterfuge, documenting its connection to Llewellyn publishing HERE.

The Pagan led Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and its parent order, the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha Omega, initially applauded the new, allegedly "pro-Pagan" stance of that order, even though it seemed somewhat hard to believe, since two of their leaders also lead Christian segregationist orders. 

By a bizarre twist of fate, the other shoe dropped today when a spokesperson for the same G.D. group again wrote that "all modern Magick is of CHRISTIAN origin and that there is no such thing as ancient Egyptian Magic." This is not the first time that representatives of this G.D. group led by segregationist, "Christians only" Llewellyn authors, have published this argument.  HERE is one example. We have refuted this already in the past as well (for example HERE).

Since the Alpha Omega is ecumenical and non-sectarian, we invited even leaders and members of that order to come and examine the A.O.'s Egyptian Magic for themselves at this week's International Festival of Golden Dawn Magicians. Instead segregationist leaders threatened their members with expulsion if they came to the Festival.

Why is it that their Christian led Golden Dawn order, on the one hand, behaves in such a blatently sectarian manner, yet at Pagan events pretends they are "bringing Paganism into the Golden Dawn?"

Actions speak louder than words.

In any case, we have already refuted that tired argument in the past (for example here). It is in reality Christianity itself that is a reformulation of ancient Egyptian and other Pagan traditions - and not the other way around as the wolves in sheep's clothing would like you to believe.

Take, for example, the "mythical" story of the life of Jesus Christ himself, which has been "borrowed" nearly wholesale from Egyptian myths of the life of Horus!

Check this out:

Check these parallels:
  1. Both were conceived of a virgin.
  2. Both were the "only begotten son" of a god (either Osiris or Yahweh)
  3. Horus's mother was Meri, Jesus's mother was Mary.
  4. Horus's foster father was called Jo-Seph, and Jesus's foster father was Joseph.
  5. Both foster fathers were of royal descent.
  6. Both were born in a cave (although sometimes Jesus is said to have been born in a stable).
  7. Both had their coming announced to their mother by an angel.
  8. Horus; birth was heralded by the star Sirius (the morning star). Jesus had his birth heralded by a star in the East (the sun rises in the East).
  9. Ancient Egyptians celebrated the birth of Horus on December 21 (the Winter Solstice). Modern Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25.
  10. Both births were announced by angels (this si nto the same as number 7).
  11. Both had shepherds witnessing the birth.
  12. Horus was visited at birth by "three solar deities" and Jesus was visited by "three wise men".
  13. After the birth of Horus, Herut tried to have Horus murdered. After the birth of Jesus, Herod tried to have Jesus murdered.
  14. To hide from Herut, the god That tells Isis, "Come, thou goddess Isis, hide thyself with thy child." To hide from Herod, an angel tells Joseph to "arise and take the young child and his mother and flee into Egypt."
  15. When Horus came of age, he had a special ritual where his eye was restored. When Jesus (and other Jews) come of age, they have a special ritual called a Bar Mitzvah.
  16. Both Horus and Jesus were 12 at this coming-of-age ritual.
  17. Neither have any official recorded life histories between the ages of 12 and 30.
  18. Horus was baptized in the river Eridanus. Jesus was baptized in the river Jordan.
  19. Both were baptized at age 30.
  20. Horus was baptized by Anup the Baptizer. Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.
  21. Both Anup and John were later beheaded.
  22. Horus was taken from the desert of Amenta up a high mountain to be tempted by his arch-rival Set. Jesus was taken from the desert in Palestine up a high mountain to be tempted by his arch-rival Satan.
  23. Both Horus and Jesus successfully resist this temptation.
  24. Both have 12 disciples.
  25. Both walked on water, cast out demons, healed the sick, and restored sight to the blind.
  26. Horus "stilled the sea by his power." Jesus commanded the sea to be still by saying, "Peace, be still."
  27. Horus raised his dead father (Osiris) from the grave. Jesus raised Lazarus from the grave. (Note the similarity in names when you say them out loud. Further, Osiris was also known as Asar, which is El-Asar in Hebrew, which is El-Asarus in Latin.)
  28. Osiris was raised in the town of Anu. Lazarus was raised in Bethanu (literally, "house of Anu").
  29. Both gods delivered a Sermon on the Mount.
  30. Both were crucified.
  31. Both were crucified next to two thieves.
  32. Both were buried in a tomb.
  33. Horus was sent to Hell and resurrected in 3 days. Jesus was sent to Hell and came back "three days" later (although Friday night to Sunday morning is hardly three days).
  34. Both had their resurrection announced by women.
  35. Both are supposed to return for a 1000-year reign.
  36. Horus is known as KRST, the anointed one. Jesus was known as the Christ (which means "anointed one").
  37. Both Jesus and Horus have been called the good shepherd, the lamb of God, the bread of life, the son of man, the Word, the fisher, and the winnower.
  38. Both are associated with the zodiac sign of Pisces (the fish).
  39. Both are associated with the symbols of the fish, the beetle, the vine, and the shepherd's crook.
  40. Horus was born in Anu ("the place of bread") and Jesus was born in Bethlehem ("the house of bread").
  41. "The infant Horus was carried out of Egypt to escape the wrath of Typhon. The infant Jesus was carried into Egypt to escape the wrath of Herod. Concerning the infant Jesus, the New Testament states the following prophecy: 'Out of Egypt have I called my son.'"
  42. Both were transfigured on the mount.
  43. The catacombs of Rome have pictures of the infant Horus being held by his mother, not unlike the modern-day images of "Madonna and Child."
  44. Noted English author C. W. King says that both Isis and Mary are called "Immaculate".
  45. Horus says: "Osiris, I am your son, come to glorify your soul, and to give you even more power." And Jesus says: "Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once."
  46. Horus was identified with the Tau (cross).

  1. Perhaps they are confused and know not what they do? I hope so. Oftentimes I'll see a Christian preaching and wonder if they are simply hurt and humbled, frequently humiliated, or if they are pure evil.
