Mother Goddess

This is an altar to the ‘mother goddess’, dating to the 1st-2nd century AD, and was unearthed at Winchester, Hampshire. Found in 1854, and displayed at the British Museum, it is dedicated to 'the Italian, German, Gaulish and British Mother-goddesses'. The dedicator, Antonius Lucretianus, was a beneficiarius consularis, an important military official attached to the governor.

Ancient pagans were fond of the mother goddess cult, with elements of it surviving today in Catholic mariolatry, the secularists’ fascination with 'Mother Nature' (rather than the Creator), and in New Age mysticism’s reinvention of the spirit of divine femininity. The Bible describes God in male terms; this might have been used to denigrate women in the past, but that makes it no less true. Similarly, those who rail against patriarchy in the name of equality hate and despise the Bible and its God- but He is still masculine. Get your theology from God's word, not the prevailing winds, past or present. 

Have we not all one Father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously with one another by profaning the covenant of the fathers? Malachi 2:10, NKJV
