Not long ago, I wrote about what makes “Krishna and Jesus” different. Daniel Hopkinson of Examiner.com wrote a piece about “A different perspective on the ancient mystery religions 1”. He examines the claim that all religions point back to the ancient sun god religions.
His point is that mysticism, aka gnosticism, led ancient Israel and some of Christianity’s “fathers” into error that was akin to idolatry. It is a somewhat dry treatment, but nevertheless an interesting perspective that I think the average COG reader might want to read.
