A very detailed video by a Reverend explaining Paganism to his Christian congregation. Presented in a logical, truthful way without the drama and lies so common in these situations. Everyone can learn from this video.

Watched it. He did a good job covering the subject from a limited viewpoint.

He can't put everything in one simple presentation.

If more folks would look into the subject they might stop hating and spreading it.

OK I've watched some of his other sermons and did a bit of research. he is not christian. However I think he has some well thought out things to say and deserves to be heard. Here is his statement of faith from his website:
Quote:
Statement of faith and Affiliation:

I do not adhere to any denomination of any religion. I practice a variety of things from multiple religions. I consider every religion valid in its own right and that is what I try to promote in the videos I release. I am every religion I have ever or, will ever encounter throughout my life. Since I cannot put a name to it, when asked, I simply say this:

I am the same religion as Yeshua, Buddha, Zoroaster, Krishna, Gandhi and every other Prophet and Philosopher who has come or will come. None of these adhered to the religions of their ancestors and none of them were a follower of the religions that sprang from their pupils. IE, Yeshua could not be considered a "Christian" and Buddha, could not be considered a "Buddhist"

I am ordained through three entities. The Church of Spiritual Humanism, The Universal Life Church and Universal Ministries. I obtained ordination through these entities in order to be legally recognized and obtain all the rights and privileges of a minister. Some do not see these entities as legitimate, because as some have said "they will ordain anyone". This, I suppose, is true. However, I do not see that as a fault of the entity but a strength. The fault, if any, is with the individual who does not or will not take the responsibility seriously. That person has not lessened the validity of the organization, but the validity of him/herself.

Secondly, I obtained ordination from these entities, because had I gone to a denominational church, they would not have ordained me unless I adhered to their doctrine/dogma, some of which I do not believe, and would have been forced to lie in order to obtain said ordination, furthermore, my credentials would soon be removed for preaching what I do.

Namaste:

Rev. Derrek Younger


Here is a link to his other sermons:

He seems to be a rather new face... He might be an interesting interview for the podcast ? He seems to be coming at things from a Gnostic angle.
