Other Traditions 101
This page is an addition to the Primary Seven page with basic informational links to other religions. I have chosen some with image links to either main websites to their tradition or an informational link on that tradition. A place to just come and explore a bit and begin your personal study. Hope this is helpful.
"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference"

We have all heard that "all roads lead to Rome" but in reality all roads lead to Egypt. This is especially true when one studies Christianity and Judaism and finds that these sister-faiths are nothing more than evolutionary developments of the Egyptian Religion. Understand from the beginning that Judaism is a much more faithful picture of this Planet's original understanding of the Divine than Christianity. As a Pastor I am amazed where my studies have taken me and the things I have learned over these last twenty years in my pursuit of Jewish Roots of the Christian Faith. Never did I expect to find what I have uncovered and consider myself fortunate to live in an age where archeology and other such disciplines are giving back to mankind what Rome destroyed, covered up, and took from us over the last two thousand years. - Craig M.

The Essenes and Jesus
Some believe Jesus did not die on the cross but was saved by the Essenes.
Jesus was taken down from the cross by his fellow Essenes because
he was "exalted over his enemies" so saved from death.
The accounts of the Empty Tomb vary.
According to Matthew, an angel in shining garments is seen by Mary and Mary opening the tomb, and the angel tells them not to be afraid since Jesus is risen from the dead.
Some speculate that the "angel" was actually an Essene.
Was Jesus St. Issa?

"As is contained in its name, religious naturalism has two central aspects. One is the naturalist view – that the natural world is all there is (and that nothing other than natural, including an active personal God, may cause events in the world). The other is appreciation of religion (which, for many, is mainly personal), with a view that Nature can be the focus of religious attention. Naturalist views, grounded in science, provide a framework for understanding what seems real."

January 8th, 1697 – Execution of Thomas Aikenhead the last person in Britain to be executed for blasphemy
Aikenhead was indicted in December 1696. The indictment read:That the prisoner had repeatedly maintained, in conversation, that theology was a rhapsody of ill-invented nonsense, patched up partly of the moral doctrines of philosophers, and partly of poetical fictions and extravagant chimeras: That he ridiculed the holy scriptures, calling the Old Testament Ezra's fables, in profane allusion to Esop's Fables; That he railed on Christ, saying, he had learned magick in Egypt, which enabled him to perform those pranks which were called miracles: That he called the New Testament the history of the imposter Christ; That he said Moses was the better artist and the better politician; and he preferred Muhammad to Christ: That the Holy Scriptures were stuffed with such madness, nonsense, and contradictions, that he admired the stupidity of the world in being so long deluded by them: That he rejected the mystery of the Trinity as unworthy of refutation; and scoffed at the incarnation of Christ. On the morning of 8 January 1697, Aikenhead wrote to his 'friends' that "it is a principle innate and co-natural to every man to have an insatiable inclination to the truth, and to seek for it as for hid treasure.
