When Jesus walked the earth when he was here, he saw Paganism all over. The Romans had the god "PAN" all over the place. Have you ever seen the god PAN? He's VILE!
I never saw those gods till I went to Greece. I went into a store in Athens to purchase a scarf, when my eyes fell on this small statue of PAN!!! I was in SHOCK!!!!!!!!!! My Jaw dropped to the floor!!!!!!! My husband began laughing at me.......of course he's more educated than I and knew about this.....but he was laughing at my response. lol.
I don't know how to say this to those who have never seen the god PAN.......but .........if you haven't seen that statue........and someday you do........... your JAW WILL DROP TO THE FLOOR TOO!
It's about fertility.........and I GUESS THEY WANTED TO BE REAL FERTILE.......if you get my meaning? I mean REAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL FERTILE!
Anyway, I told the store manager that I was offended by that thing and because of that I wouldn't buy anything at her store. And then she laughed....because what works in USA does not work there! You can't threaten them with that stuff. That's been going on since the days of Jesus there and to this day, they are still selling those gods....believe it or not!
But Jesus said, be in the world but not of the world. Be NOT LIKE THEM. Be the Salt, be the Light of the world. So that's what we're supposed to do.
I am not sure if I was salt or light when my jaw dropped.......but .........oh well....I tried
