what was the cult of isis and how much influence did it have on christianity
>>14235312SourceIdk why but the search image doesn't work anymore
>>14235312Christianity was a Jewish version of Pagan dying/rising savior cults that were all the rage at the time in the surrounding civilizations. https://youtu.be/E6Psu5X2X1w
>>14235312Honestly we don't know much about it, it might have an egyptian priest one day who sat up and said "look theres all these mommy goddess in the world, lets go spread the love". It could have been kinda like "new age" Roman religion, just a bunch of mother goddess syncretized and made into a roving cult. Mother goddess cults existed all over teh Mediterrenean and they were often the biggest and most important cults for the layfolk, such as that of Demeter, Artemis, Innana and Cybele. Isis apears at the end of Apulius "The Golden Ass" , and he calls her there Queen of Heaven , and it seems the cult had all kind of salvific and beautific promises that they received through visions. The worshippers also shared meals , got baptized etc.I think it was just popularized mystery religion , in many ways showing how Christians acted in a similar way as to convert more people.

sauce me senpai
>>14235512I don't know why you're seething so much. All I did was call your religion a kike knockoff of pagan mystery cults.
isis/queen of heaven/lucifer/blessed virgin mary/ishtar/athena/lady liberty worship comes from the root of the pagan false religion aka mystery babylon, going back to Babel, where a false 3 part Godhead of the Almighty based on coomcultism and host of heaven and apotheosis worship was instituted and is still going strong until today.how it affected Christianity? it didnt, but it did affect the people who went "a whoring after idols", they were destroyed many times because of sex goddess worship, and its gonna happen at least 1 more time.
>>14236046Babylonians never had a "whore goddess" nor did they worship whores. Innana/Ishtar actually had a husband. Also Athena was a perpetual virgin .Also its seems to me that only christians are so obsessed with sex.
>>14236101~uh-huh~ask the castrated twink temple prostitutes of samiramis, why they are worshipping their dragon queen by taking it up the ass, while the dragon queens high priestess takes it from spirits in ritual ceremonies. all in worship of the virgin queen of heaven... hmmm seams completely unconnected to mystery babylon mother of harlots and abominations, no? and what was that ishtar festival in babylon called, where ALL single girls bound themselves up in ribbons and sat around in the streets waiting for any dude to come around, pick them, rape them and rip off the ribbons during sex, to show that they were considered attractive and pleased the goddess by being raped publicly? baka@"sacred"protitutionhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_prostitution
Didn't Cleopatra continue to be worshipped long after her death? I know many statues of her were preserved when Cult Priests payed considerable amounts of coin to Octavian to keep them intact.
>>14235312Wow she is beautiful. Stop tempting me during the Nativity fast.
>>14235312for the love of god... sauce...
>>14235531I have to imagine a lot of mother goddess cultists were looking for comfort during pregnancy, considering how horrifyingly high the rates of miscarriage, infant mortality, and pregnancy complication related maternal death were before modern medicine. It really is true that in ancient times men died in war and women died in childbirth.
>>14236315yep -- pagan larpers are fucking hilarious. they somehow skip over all the getting fucked in the ass eunch tranny shit that happened in the temples
>>14236315did babylonians really?
>>14237710Hard to say for sure, since much of what it known about their practices comes from ancient "historians" like Herodotus who had no first-hand knowledge of what they were writing, and wrote down basically every rumor they heard as though it were fact.There were probably temple prostitutes of some sort in Babylon, but whether their practices were really as depraved as some later sources suggest seems questionable.
