The cult of the Mother and the child was widespread in Egypt. The mother goddess Isis wearing the crown of the Queen of Heaven and is often represented holding the child Horus on her lap. This image is very similar to that of the Virgin and Child Christianity AE50. It has established a close relationship with 'the great Artemis of the Ephesians (Acts 7:28 p.m.) and the great goddesses of other peoples. It has close similarities with the Phrygian goddess Cybele and other female representations of divine power in Asia (Ma of Cappadocia, the Phoenician Astarte, Atargatis and Myletta Syria) and we can assume that all these deities are merely variants of a single religious concept.

The body of the goddess

bulls, symbols of fertility. She wears a high calathos.
It is represented with all
the attributes of the Mother of the Gods
and as such she wore a crown of towers, which reminds
the Tower of Babel. AR15

Ephesus was the crucible in which the pagan worship of the mother goddess was Christianized
and transformed into a fervent devotion dedicated to Mary made "Mother of God"

"The God who made the world (...) does not dwell in temples
handmade "- Apostle Paul to the Athenians. - Acts 17:24,29
Ephesus was the crucible in which the pagan worship of the mother goddess was Christianized and transformed into fervent devotion dedicated to Mary made ​​"Mother of God" AR16. It is the Christians of Ephesus that Paul had announced such a drift (Acts 20:17-30, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, note). In 431 the Third Ecumenical Council held in this city proclaimed Mary "Theotokos", a Greek word which means "God-bearer." The use of this title by the Church was instrumental in the development of Marian doctrine.
Catholic notions of 'Mother of God'
and 'Queen of Heaven', although
post-New Testament
us back to practices
historico-religious Eastern
much older.
In a tour guide of the city of Ephesus, he wrote that "can discover personality traits of the Mother Goddess (Cybele / Artemis) and its features with the Virgin Mary. For example, the statues of Artemis are often the arms stretched forward, and in one aspect of abundance and wealth, such as the Virgin Mary. This resemblance is very significant in the conduct and scope of the person. "AA128
The honor paid to the Virgin Mary in Ephesus was an updated version of the old pagan worship of the Virgin Mary carried in Anatolia. These traces are too numerous and precise so that we can talk about coincidences. The cult of the Mother and the child was widespread in Egypt. The mother goddess Isis wearing the crown of the Queen of Heaven and is often represented holding the child Horus on her lap. This image is very similar to that of the Virgin and Child Christianity AA127. This strong presence in Egypt and symbolism of as opposite as Catholicism and Buddhism could be explained by the common Babylonian origin religions.

The Isis picture wearing the crown of the Queen of Heaven and taking the child Horus on her lap much like that of the Virgin and Child in Christendom

Should we bow to a mother goddess

to pray to God?

The similarity between the cults of mother goddesses,

statues and securities

is not a mere coincidence

Even the titles given to Mary remember the pagan mother goddesses. Ishtar was hailed as' Madonna 'or' merciful mother who listens to prayers. " Isis and Astarte were called 'Queen of Heaven'. Cybele was called 'Mother of all the blessed.' All these titles are awarded, with variations to Mary, 'Blessed Virgin'. AR17
"Our Father
in heaven "
- Matthew 6:9, Jerusalem

"Make all things"

1 Thessalonians 5:21.

Religious practices are often, communities or individuals in difficult circumstances of life, a way to release emotion. It is hoped that an objective examination of the facts relating to these practices will be useful to them seeking to interpret such phenomena. The Bible actually encourages us to "check everything." - 1 Thessalonians 5:21.
