The Church of the Divine Earth

Beginning in the 10th century and continuing on into the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries, and beyond, The Teutonic Knights, and their predecessors and successors, were granted power and authority by the Roman Catholic Church to Christianize all those living in the Baltic regions and elsewhere in Europe. The Baltic and Prussian Crusades, which were just two of the many religious crusades orchestrated by papal Rome during that time in history, either Christianized or annihilated the country dwellers --- by whatever means.  Fact. In the modern world, acts of this kind are known as acts of genocide --- the "intentional murder of part or all of a particular ethnic, religious, or national group."

Nuo 10 amžiaus ir tęsiamas į 15-ą ir už jos ribų, kryžiuočiai, ir jų pirmtakai ir teisių perėmėjai, buvo suteiktas teises ir įgaliojimus pagal Romos katalikų bažnyčios krikščionybės visus joje gyvenančius Baltijos regionuose ir kitose Europos šalyse. Baltijos ir Prūsijos Kryžiuočių buvo religinių Kryžiuočių orkestravo Popiežiaus Romoje krikščionybės arba sunaikinti šalies gyventojų. Faktas. Šiuolaikiniame pasaulyje, veikia šios rūšies žinomi kaip genocido --- "tyčinis nužudymas dalį ar visas tam tikros etninės, religinės ar tautinės grupės." 

In 1565 Valerijonas Protasevičius invited the Jesuit order to 'fight' with idolaters. This was the last step to destroy the ancient Baltic faith. Despite this, Lithuanian peasants continued to practice Paganism until the 18th century. Later, Pagan traditions were adopted by the Christian church, old deities were replaced by sainthood, and many elements of old religion have been preserved well into the 21st century.

1565 m. Valerijonas Protasevičius pakvietė jėzuitų siekiant "kovoti" su balwochwalców. Tai buvo paskutinis žingsnis, siekiant sunaikinti senovės tikėjimą. Nepaisant to, Lietuvos valstiečių toliau praktika pagonybės iki 18 amžiaus. Vėliau, pagoniškų tradicijų priėmė krikščionių, senų dievybių buvo pakeisti Šventumas ir daugelis elementai senosios religijos vis dar egzistuoja šiandien.

After the Christianization of Lithuania, the final frontier, the real purpose of the Christian Teutonic order was revealed: the Order was fighting against the Balts not to bring a new faith, but to conquer new territories. Another consequence of the Baltic Crusades was the extermination of Pagan Old Prussians.

Po krikšto Lietuva, galutinis sienos, nekilnojamojo tikslas krikščionių kryžiuočių buvo nustatyta: Įsakymas kovojant su pagonių užkariauti naujų teritorijų. Kitas Baltijos Kryžiuočių pasekmė buvo pagonių naikinimo Senoji Prūsija.

The crimes and atrocities committed by the conquerors disguised as heralds of the Christian faith are now forgotten. In 1701, "Prussia" became an independent German monarchy. Since then the name "Prussian" has passed over to the Germanic people.

Nusikaltimus ir žiaurumus, kuriuos užkariautojai užmaskuoti kaip šaukliai krikščionių tikėjimas yra dabar užmirštas. 1701, "Prūsijos" tapo nepriklausoma Vokietijos monarchijos. Nuo tada pavadinimas "Prūsų" dabar priklauso germanų tautos.

If you believe in the Christian God, you may very well have chosen to reject Brahman, Allah, Buddha, Elohim, Waheguru, Bahá, Perkunas and all of the thousands of other gods that millions of other people worship today. It is quite likely that you rejected these other gods without ever having taken the time to look into any of them in an attempt to discover anything about them. You simply absorbed the dominant faith in your home or in the society you grew up in.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Paganism (from Latin paganus, meaning "country dweller", "rustic") is a blanket term used to refer to various polytheistic, non-Abrahamic religious traditions. Its exact definition may vary: It is primarily used in a historical context, referring to Greco-Roman polytheism as well as the polytheistic traditions of Europe before Christianization. In a wider sense, extended to contemporary religions, it includes most of the Eastern religions and the indigenous traditions of the Americas, Central Asia and Africa, as well as non-Abrahamic folk religion in general. More narrow definitions will not include any of the world religions and restrict the term to local or rural currents not organized as civil religions. Characteristic of Pagan traditions is the absence of proselytism and the presence of a living mythology which explains religious practice.

The term "Pagan" is a Christian adaptation of the "gentile" of Judaism, and as such has an inherent Abrahamic bias and derogatory connotations among Western monotheists, comparable to heathen and infidel, also known as kafir and mushrik in Islam. For this reason, ethnologists avoid the term "Paganism," with its uncertain and varied meanings, in referring to traditional or historic faiths, preferring more precise categories such as polytheism, shamanism, pantheism or animism.
