Believe It or Not, He’s The Reason for the Season
Here are the facts, as written and as attested to by countless followers the world over: God was born of a virgin on December 25th, and his birth was attended by no one save lowly shepherds.
He lived a simple and celibate life on earth, but to those who believe, he “giveth increase, he giveth abundance, he giveth cattle, he giveth progeny and life.” Further, he “protects the soul of the just against the demons that seek to drag it down to Hell.”
And yet, despite these concrete, historical proofs, and despite the fact that multitudes have worshipped him for centuries, today some poor souls have never even heard his name—and many who have deny his truth as mere legend!
That must make god very sad. Why won’t people accept him? It’s odd, especially since the incentive to do so is great: Through him, we will be “born again” and “enjoy forever a blessed immortality.”
Just think about that for a minute: Immortality. According to ancient, sacred wisdom, that means that after we die, we’ll live forever !
That’s just an incredible offer, isn’t it?
So let’s all take a moment, during the hustle and bustle of the holidays, to reflect on the miraculous birth and instructive life of Mithra, the real reason for the season.
Merry Mithramas, everyone!
