#newslaves #deviladvocates Christianity has always labeled these ancient religions as being pagan, which gives a negative connotation. The word pagan actually means someone who lives in the country, a mountain dweller, or someone who lives outside of a city. That name was given to someone who lived up in the mountains, because in Rome, after Christianity was adopted, the religion was thought to be sophisticated. There was little sophistication to be found outside of the cities. Once Caesar became a Christian then everybody could be a Christian, so therefore, it became the State religion. So it was in high style to be a Christian. Consequently, you were considered very intelligent if you became a Christian at that time, you were very in, you were modern if you were a Christian in Rome. Once it was accepted fully, and then it became the thing to be. Of course, the people out in the hills, the farmers, the poor people out in the country, on the outside of Rome that have lived the same way for ten thousand years, well, those were pagans. They didn't understand a new "take" on things. So it became a disparaging remark about poor people of the soil, people who were farmers, people who didn't know all of this high-fangled, new religious thing that Rome had come up with as a new belief system. The cross with the circle of the sun is a very common symbol, in both ancient and modern times. They were just people, and the working class people were called pagans. That is where the word came from in ancient times. Anybody who wasn't with the "in" crowd in Rome, with the new religion, was considered a pagan.
