(1Co 13:4-7 KJV) Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.We like that. Since we like it and it isn’t found in paganism, we have grafted it onto the old gods. I keep trying to find fantasy authors that I can enjoy. Some tell good stories and gradually introduce magic and sorcery as they move through a series. That means in a series of five books I can make it through two and a half before I give up. I notice that they use terms like, “church” and “sin” while trying to gild it onto the polytheistic superstitions that they are constructing.
It is kind of like anchovy paste. A tiny amount enhances flavor and brings out subtleties. It very quickly gets to the point that it overwhelms the other ingredients. A better example might be giving someone a pint of B- blood when they are B+. It may look the same and be similar in so many ways and yet it means death.
Paganism will do that to the American culture. The virtues we enjoy did not come from any source but the Bible.
