So, what about eating meat that has been offered to idols? Well, we all know that an idol is not really a god and that there is only one God.

~1 Corinthians 8:4, NLT


It is the glory of vain men never to yield to the truth.


Roman and Greek mythology was big in the pagan world. For the Romans, the king of the gods was Zeus and his Greek equivalent was Jupiter, who rules over Mount Olympus and is the god of thunder and lightning, as well as law and order. Hera, or Juno in Roman religion, is the wife and sister of Zeus, and is queen of the gods. Her symbols are the peacock, the cuckoo and the cow.  She is the goddess of marriage, childbirth and fertility.  Poseidon or Neptune were the gods of the sea or earthquakes. Mars and Ares were the gods of war. Ares’ half-sister is the Greek goddess Athena. Goddess of reason or wisdom. Bacchus was the god of wine; Aphrodite and Venus were the god and goddess of love, sex and beauty. Artemis and Diana were god and goddess of Chasity. Apollo was the god of sun and healing. You get my drift, they had a different god for every need or desire. I only mentioned a few, there are many more. If you were a pagan, you had to remember which god you needed to appeal to for what particular need. You would actually need a chart. Such is the confusion in the world of polytheism but not so for a real Jew or a Christian.

We believe in one God who is the Creator of all and reigns over all. We go to one God for every need. Augustine lived in a pagan culture, almost at the height of the Roman Empire. Like all the prophets of the Old Testament, he made fun of their gods who were figments of their own vile imaginations. These gods aren’t real. At best they are demonic spirits. The gods themselves are idols that were created by men and have no life or power within them. I disagree with Jonathan Cahn. He is trying to sell books, I am not. We are not seeing a revival of the gods. The gods are not real; what we are seeing is an increase in demonic activity. I think we are facing an all out assault from  the demonic world. Demons are real, gods are not. No where in scripture does it teach that an idol has substance, life or power. I do agree that here in the USA, we saw a dramatic increase in demonic activity in the 60’s and 70’s. I can remember what it was like before and I am telling you, the world I grew up in {50’s} was nothing like today. There is no question that evil existed but we didn’t know it. Of course there was no TV, no social media, no CNN and the two biggest events on the calendar was the summer church revival and the county fair in the fall. I think we are facing a demonic blitz because the devil is running out of time, but this is just an opinion; it is not fact because I don’t really know and neither does anyone else.
