Paganism is no religious beliefs. No foundation from the Word of God. Paganism could be beliefs made up that don’t exist in the Bible. It could mean gods (Jer.10). Papal Rome adopted Pagan Rome’s beliefs; so most of the world is the same exept for one religion (Eph.5:27).

If it’s an ‘ism’ it’s a religion, because ‘ism’ denotes a doctrine to define something believed to be true. However, Jesus-ism defies definition, thank goodness. In the same way that love – ism defies a definition. Because for many, there is no one on Earth who can define love except those who, when they try to define it in a proscriptive language of relative truth and morality, very often end up behaving in a militant way that makes a complete mockery of the meaning of the word ‘love’ as clearly shown by the mountain of hurt, maimed and killed bodies… Read more »

At one time, we saw ourselves as fragmented beings, made out of pieces of the earth, and we were just a small corner of a great big design. And as a small thing in this great world, we had many different needs and fears and hopes, which had an infinite number of solutions. And for each unexplained mystery we stumbled on, there were many mystical explanations. This is what the Pagan spiritualities were about – belonging, feeling, experimenting, TRULY understanding, and reveling in the great mysteries. Testing new foods, new therapies, new growing patterns, entrenching ourselves in the habits of… Read more »

Paganism is the ‘umbrella term’ for all religions which include more than one god in their worship, so yes, it includes most of the examples on your list. Pagan religions include those that grew up from tribal understanding of there being gods for everything – fire gods, water gods, hunting gods, blood gods etc. They have included some of the leading faiths in the history of the world – The ancient Egyptians were pagans, as were the Greeks and Romans, the wicca, the druids, the Vikings and so on.

Hope this helps.

Paganism (from Latin paganus) and heathenry are blanket terms which have come to connote a broad set of spiritual or religious beliefs and practices of natural or polytheistic religions, as opposed to the Abrahamic monotheistic religions. “Pagan” is the usual translation of the Islamic term mushrik, which refers to ‘one who worships something other than God’. Ethnologists do not use the term for these beliefs, which are not necessarily compatible with each other: more useful categories are shamanism, polytheism or animism. Often, the term has pejorative connotations, comparable to heathen, infidel and kafir (كافر) in Islam. During the expansion of… Read more »

Paganism is a broad, eclectic contemporary religious movement that encompasses shamanistic, ecstatic, polytheistic, and magical religions. Most of the religions termed Pagan are characterized by nature-centered spirituality, honoring of pre-Christian deities, dynamic, personal belief systems, lack of institutionalization, a quest to develop the self, and acceptance and encouragement of diversity. Paganism is sometimes referred to as Neo-Paganism to emphasize its connections to as well as difference from pre-Christian religions.

The literal definition of ‘pagan’ is any religeon that isnt Islam, Christianity, or Judeaism. This includes Hindus, Buddhists, Shinto, Taoists, and all the New Age Paganisms. Any religeon that is not into God is a pagan religeon.
