The virgin goddess of black magic
In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
The Orthodox Church is correct and Roman Catholicism is wrong about the blessed virgin Mary who is the Theotokos and the mother of Jesus Christ Who is God in the flesh. The virgin Mary is not the immaculate conception, she immaculately conceived by the Holy Spirit the only true God in the flesh Who is Jesus Christ and is therefore the mother of God (not of His divine nature but His human nature which is divinized by His divine nature in the enhypostasia of the communion of idioms or hypostatic union of His two natures of God and of man, in theological terms) for He is One Person – of the Three Persons of the Blessed Trinity One God. Mary is of course totally loyal to Jesus Christ and has nothing to do with the virgin goddess (Isis and others) of black magic, which was used by the ancient Gnostic apostates as a substitute for the real virgin Mary mother of the God-Man Jesus Christ. He, Jesus Christ is the second Person of the Holy Trinity and therefore is God. Mary is therefore in this sense the mother of God. It is in this sense that she always has been confessed by the Church to be the mother of God. She is not a goddess.
Meet the virgin goddess of black magic -- she is the “immaculate one” (A LIE) who is Satan and false god and temptress and the rehashed pagan mother goddess that the early Gnostics (who claimed they were the knowers of the unknown god) worshipped.See this short excerpt, to illustrate, from:
"Thunder, Perfect Mind" from the Nag Hammadi Library
I am ... within.I am ...of the natures.
I am the creation of the spirits.
I am control and the uncontrollable.
I am the union and the dissolution.
I am the abiding and I am the dissolving.
I am the one below, and they come up to me.
I am the judgement and the acquittal.
I, I am sinless, and the root of sin derives from me.
I am the hearing which is attainable to everyone and the speech which cannot be grasped.
I am a mute who does not speak, and great is my multitude of words. ( this is Sarasvati)
The Mother Goddess was the beginning (the mother) of all the gods and goddesses and all sorcery /magic in connection with them.
In India the mother goddess is Durga and takes the form of Kali.
The yogis, ajivika or sramana or sadhu, of India, worshipped the fire god Agni (the god called “The Knower” whose tongue is the goddess Kali the goddess of destruction, a hermaphrodite god-goddess) imported from ancient Assyria/Persia, and engaged in the practice of the magical incantations of the kashshaph (sorcery) and nachash (serpent black magic) practices, amongst others, of ancient Mesopotamia, which made their way there through ancient Assyria/Persia as well. This strange fire (Hebrew: esh) with the sorcery and magic and rest of the occult practices listed together therein are condemned by God in Deuteronomy 18:10, 11. The final abomination of this is listed first in Dt:18:10: Neither let there be found among you any one that shall expiate his son or daughter, making them to pass through the fire…. (DRV) That final abomination is human sacrifice by fire sacrifice (as in Agni) to false gods/goddesses in the hope of gaining preternatural power from fallen spirits; the apostate angel, Satan - the devil, is the chief fallen spirit of the rest and who Jesus Christ said was a murderer and a liar from the beginning. Jn:8:44: You are of your father the devil: and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning: and he stood not in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, andthe father thereof. (DRV)
Sorcery/magic and astrology began, in the post flood world, in Chaldaea Sumeria Assyro-Babylonian Mesopotamia.

The Cult Of The Planet-Gods
Having introduced the chief gods, we shall now examine literary evidence demonstrating the cult of the planet-gods. We shall look at the Creation Epic (Enuma Elish) and at a variety of prayers and magical texts. I shall use simple and common definitions for prayer and magic here. In prayer, one makes a request of a god. The magician tries to coerce or even command a god. In practice, however, the distinction may break down. For example, knowing the habits of a god, his likes and dislikes, one might make a request in such a way that it would be unlikely, even impossible to reject. Certainly, there was no clear distinction between prayer and magic in Mesopotamia./35/ It is the modern scholars who have drawn it, and in many cases they have been force to "fudge," coining the term "Gebetsbeschwrungen," or"Prayer-spells"….
Magical ceremonies in Mesopotamia were private, small-scale,versions of the rituals performed publicly in the temples. Magical practitioners of different sorts were usually priests. References to the astral aspects of the various gods are common, although they do not crowd out other aspects./38/

This commanding of gods even extended to making them speak (the statues and other images) by occult means. The magicians who engaged in such things generally did it for money. In Jesus Christ's time on earth before His Ascension into heaven (from whence He will come again to judge the quick and the dead), He warned about these fakirs.
From Jesus Christ:
22 For there will rise upfalse Christs and false prophets: and they shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce (if it were possible) even the elect. (DRV)
15 ¶ Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (DRV)
From St. Paul:
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. (DRV)
From St. Peter:
20 Understanding this first: That no prophecy of scripture is made by private interpretation. (DRV)
From St. John:
15 And it was given him (the Antichrist) to give life to the image of the beast: and that the image of the beast should speak: and should cause that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast should be slain.
16 And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand or on their foreheads: (DRV)
Rather than take the Mark then, the early saints were martyred for their faith. Something that we must not hesitate to do when confronted with that choice. One of the early martyrs was St. Irenaeus of Lyons author of Against Heresies. For the creed of the early church which he recorded for posterity (which is also the original Apostles creed) see:
