There have been a lot of questions lately about why don't we (Pagans) believe in god or why don't we try harder to find him... My question is this. Since most Pagans are polythiestic do you believe that the Christian God does exist? And what are your thoughts or beliefs surrounding his existance? What about Jesus? Do you believe he does or did exist? And what are your beliefs surrounding this existance?
*I will answer below as well...

I am a hard polytheist! I do not believe that "All Gods Are One" as many do. I believe that each God is an individual entity unto himself. And I do believe in the existence of the Christian God. However, I believe he is no better or worse than all the other Gods that oversee existence... I believe in the idea of "local gods"- that when human kind came in to existence the Gods were divided up or chose to oversee or rule certain peoples. (Egyptian Gods for Egypt / Mayan Gods for Mayans) and that this is why different people had different beliefs and religious traditions, because they were all being led by different groups of Gods. So, the Christian God was simply the God that chose the Israelites and ruled them (along with Asherah for some time).

Cont~ I believe, that there is life after death, and that life and death is a cycle, we come from somewhere good (heaven), then to life in this world, then to pay for our debts in another one, and there it's as bad as the things we did, we reap what we sew, but to me it's a life similar to the one's we live now, the outcome is based on what we did in our previous life. Then when we die there we go live a better life, then are born again to this world. It's a cycle, hard to explain, but I also have theories based on the planets, nine lives, nine planets. But our lives are good or bad based on the previous one. My theory and something I came up with, but I do believe in Heaven and Hell and God for that matter.
