This looks overtly racist and I cannot be associated with anything like this. Sounds hateful.

Discussion: Winter Festival--Festival of Light over Darkness

Light over darkness, can do that at church or religious services each week. Don't need a pagan festival to do that.

But paganism is more sensible and easier to deal with than Christianity. Look on conversion as just another step in a 12-step process.

Lightness over darkness.

So white is better than black. Very clear to me what we're doing here.

"Light over Darkness" is celebrated by both the Hindus of India called "Dewali Festival" and also by most Hebrew and Christian Sects today. There are different names for each such celebration depending on the historical and cultural adaptations at various places.

But the "Light over Darkness", was a key theme of the ancient Persians, who practiced a religion, today called "Zoroastrianism", whose central religious belief prophesied a celebration of "Good over Evil".

This idea was actually adopted by the Hebrews during their 500 years of relatively peaceful existence under the Persian Empire, from about 520 BC, when Cyrus The Great (600 BC-530 BC) entered Babylon and allowed Hebrews to return to Jerusalem and start rebuilding their "2nd Temple".

By the time of Jesus, and the Crucifixon Event around 32 AD, Jesus entered the 2nd Temple, to make his political statement, when he overturned the "money changers" tables in from this same 2nd Temple.

So, the religious idea of "Good Over Evil" as celebrated today by Hebrews and Christians, in many places, is really adopted from Ancient Persia.

Makes sense ?

What is Wisdom ?
(Going Deeper in Battle of Light & Darkness)


"Prince of Darkness" according to Ancient Persians

"The national religion of the Persians was Zoroastrianism, which had a very different cultural and geographical background from the dominant religions of Palestine and Mesopotamia. It introduced such concepts as monotheism, a God of pure goodness (Ahura Mazda, meaning “wise lord”), a supreme “destructive spirit” named Ahriman that opposed God, hierarchies of good and evil angels (the latter called daevas), and the idea of an eschatological battle with a final judgment and resurrection in paradise (itself a Persian word). "

Quoted from following website that has excellent summary of Judeo-Christian "Satan" (Devil) concept adopted from the ancient Persians
