Question by Holy Spirit: Cults of hellenic gods in greece?
Can someone explain what he cults to certain deities did or practiced in ancient greece please?

Best answer:

Answer by [Muslim] islam is peace™
alot of those practices moved to christianity

*****

I am muslim by choice , and thats for the following reasons that i found after study :

1- The view of Jesus and Mary in islam:

the view of jesus in islam is the best and the most reasonable as In islam jesus is looked at as a moderate view between two extreme views , jews humiliate jesus and his mother , whereas christians worship jesus and raise him above humanity this thing jesus denied and refused .
in the bible there has been altering but still there can be find from the bible ,, sayings of jesus that makes us know the truth
let us take an example of jesus saying “My God” in the bible, one can find that in alot of places in the bible like :
<<< after one of the scribes asked him Which is the first commandment of all? Jesus answered him, ((The first of all commandments {is}, Hear, O Israel The Lord our God is one Lord )) Mark 12: 28 to 33 (K.J.V.)>>>
and:
<<< Jesus in the gospel of John said “I ascend unto my God, and your God”. John 20:17 KJV >>>
and in alot of other places ..
notice the word -Our God – that jesus said this means that we have a common God we and jesus, God means creator this means we r both created and raised by the same God,, we as well as jesus

jesus always admitted and declared with hight Voice that he worships Our God that is in the heaven and invited us to worship him how can he be God after that
we always see jesus saying (my God) and praying to him why don’t we just worship the God of jesus , that is; the creator of jesus
its amazing how jesus used to call God : (My God) and (Our God ) many times in the bible , God is the one who creats and rises that means jesus always used to say : (my creator).
which agrees with islam view of jesus as human prophet and no more than that.

Mary also mary is considered in islam , as a very great woman and the purest woman on earth , but not as mother of God !! whom he had made pregnant !! , nor his gf!

HolySpirit
the holy spirit is considered as the head of angels and he it is called gebrael , but its not a part of God nor any divine , he is just a creation of the One and Only true God that is in heaven .

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

2- Upon reading quran i found many amazing facts from those i found is scientific facts or miracles i will mention some of them:

Few miracles Of Quran
Big Bang
When describing the creation of the “heavens and the earth,” the Qur’an states the theory of the “Big Bang” explosion at the start of it . the Qur’an says that “the heavens and the earth were joined together as one unit, before they were aparted:
Quran (21:30) {Have not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We cloved them asunder} [cloved them asunder means separated them].
and this was 1400 years before the discovery of the big bang theory.

Expansion of Universe
this amazing theory was discovered in the 20th century that the universe is continuing to expand after the big bang explosion,,
this idea ; that the universe is continuing to expand. was mentioned in quran 1430 years ago : {and The heavens, We have built them with power. And verily, We are still expanding it} quran (51:47).

furthermore, In nicia council constantine forced people on only 4 gosepels , and burned alot of gosepels that said jesus was only a human prophet no more, and he killed those who oposed trinity , thus forcing trinity on christians ,

Constantine was a roman pagan all his life , he wanted to be called christian but he also wanted to maintain his roman believes , so what he did was that he inserted the pagan beliefs of trinity and idol or statues glorifying and worshiping into christianity , thus deviating christianity from the true word of God ..

thats why nowadays muslims r the real christians (followers of jesus) cause they follow the belief that jesus used to believe and the things he used to command , and they dont follow a diverted or a pagan originated believe.

Conclusion:

finally and in conclusion… The concept of God taught by Islam is, the Supreme being who is uncreated , anyone who is created, born or dies is not God.

i found that islam is the only religion that claims absolute uniqness of God and really means it and thus islam is the only religion today that follow the first commandment of all commandments to moses and jesus and mohammed which is :

“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, [is] a jealous God:” [Exodus 34:14]
and jesus said:
after one of the scribes asked him Which is the first commandment of all? Jesus answered him, “The first of all commandments is, Hear, O Israel The Lord our God is one Lord” [Mark 12:28to33]
and in Quran : ” 1.Say, “He is God [who is] One, 2.God, the Eternal Refuge. 3.He neither begets nor is born, 4.Nor is there to Him any equivalent. ” (112:1)
amen.

islam is simplicity , clearness , direct teachings , and

Question by robbie: What are the some practices and beliefs dealing with Hellenic Paganism?
Im new to the fact that some people still exclusively follow the Hellenistic pantheons and Im quite curious about it because I know soooooo much more about the Greek and Roman Gods and Goddesses but nothing about the modern practice. So if you have any experiences sources or beliefs you don’t mind sharing thanks very much!
