    Is Christianity Alien to Germanics?

    As I can see when I look around this forum and when reading polls, many of you germanic people at this forum define your selfs as christian. By tradition I too define myself as christian.

    But recently I have started to feel that it´s a problem for me as a christian that it is a semitic religion, created by and for semitic people, not germanic people.

    What is your view on this issue?

    Is it a problem or not?

    Eihter way - why or why not?

    Re: Christianity not for Germanics?

    I advice you to look at the book "The Doctrine of Awakening" by Julius Evola, which is about the early buddhistic texts.
    Buddhism is considered to be the spiritual doctrine of the Indo-Europeans.
    Maybe this material will get you more in contact with your spirit.

    The traditionalists teach that all religions have the same esoteric core, so maybe "Sophia Perennis" also could be something for you.

    Sv: Christianity not for Germanics?

    Yes, I have ran into to the concept of "Sophia Perennis", via Evola I think. But I did´t get into more detail on that.

    Do you have any suggestion on where to start reading about Sophia Perennis?

    In short, why does Evola mean that buddhism is the spiritual doctrine of the Indo-Europeans?

    Re: Christianity not for Germanics?

    Christianity is as much Greek as it is Semitic. Any scholar of Christianity knows that Greek thought had great influence on the New Testament.

    Yet even if Christianity were 100% Semitic, why would that matter? If Jews had invented the automobile, would you be reluctant to drive a car?

    By tradition I too define myself as christian.
    If you're defining your religion out of "tradition," that sounds like a poor reason. You should adhere to a religion because you actually believe it.

    No, propobly not. But I don´t think that that is a relevant comparison.

    First, there is a number of alternative religions to christianity, including our traditional germanic pre-christian religion.

    Second, my thougt is that maybe a germanic religion is better suited for germanic people, and a semitic religion for semitic people.

    And by the way, I actually prefer a swedish or german car, since it is built for swedish(winter) conditions.

    I also have a problem with christianity´s dogma of the jewish people as the chosen people. But maybe I´m wrong here?

    Revolt against the Modern World by Julius Evola is a good place to start, but also books by Frithjof Schuon, Réne Guénon and Martin Lings. They are perhaps the most known, but there are many others.
    If you understand swedish there are Tage Lindbom and Kurt Almqvist.

    Here are some links:

    András László and the Metaphysical Traditionality

    Ljus i Mörkret-Tage Lindbom



    Scientific studies has indicated that the historical Buddah was a blond, Indo-European from noble Scytian stock. It is also said that he was the prince of the Sakya warrior caste and that Scytians are the ancient cousins of the germans, Celts etc. It is also considered by Evola that the spirit to purify one-self; to reach the primordial state, which is the "resurrection" of the divine nature of man, because this was lost after the fall, is considered to be Aryan.

    Re: Christianity not for Germanics?

    Christianity is something that I personally belive in. For me Christ is my Saviour. If you actually read the bible then you might understand that it is for everyone not just the jews. Christ said that the gentiles can be saved just as the jews can and if I remeber correctly then some of the jews did not like that fact. Another thing that I dont get is why so many people think that christianity is a tool to destroy the white people, cause most jews that I have talked to think that Christianity is wrong and racist. Remeber that a true Jew does not belive that Christ was the saviour.

    just my 2 cents

    Re: Christianity not for Germanics?

    Being an agnostic myself, I have mixed reactions about Christianity. On the one hand, it's a shame that pagans were forced to convert to a foreign, Judaic religion. For sure we lost some of our Germanic heritage because of it. But at the same time, Christianity has helped to unify the continent and protect it against foreign oppressors throughout history (e.g Turkish or Moorish invaders). I fear that if Europe had remained pagan then we would still be a bunch of warring tribes. There's nothing to say that we wouldn't be conquered by a similar but less favourable religion, like Islam or Judaism, at some other point in time...

    Re: Christianity not for Germanics?

    I would believe in Christ and his resurrection regardless of whether it was congruent with my ideology. In my opinion, Christianity is real and its veracity can be shown through historical evidence (and hey, if it's not, I'm not going to lose anything in eternity). Thus, I would not forsake my religion in exchange for a temporal ideology.

    Christianity has done much to unify Europe and inspire learning, making Europe the most succesful continent on the earth, militarily, economically, and intellectualy.
