✨ Highlights📊 Transcript
The question of whether the Greek Gods were real is approached by considering the grain of truth behind myths and legends, and the transmission of knowledge through generations.
00:05
The assumption is that there is a grain of truth behind all myths and legends.
The Old Testament account suggests that all human beings come from a common ancestor, Noah, and his three sons.
Generations pass on knowledge, including the history of their family, which contributes to the development of myths and legends.
The speaker discusses how Noah and his sons would have passed on knowledge about the past world and the existence of angels to subsequent generations.
01:44
Noah and his sons would have shared information about the past world and their experiences with God in the garden.
The speaker suggests that the stories might have been warped and changed over time as they were passed on from generation to generation.
The speaker mentions the possibility of angels mixing with human beings, resulting in the production of a race of Giants.
The stories of Greek gods may have been changed over time to make them more relatable and less demanding.
03:31
Stories about gods were passed down from generation to generation but were changed to fit the desires and beliefs of later generations.
The stories were altered to make the gods more lenient and less concerned with moral accountability.
The end result was gods who only cared about rituals and sacrifices, rather than the state of one's heart.
The idea of superior beings called angels with power over nations is mentioned in the Old Testament.
The stories of the Greek gods may not be true, but they are likely based on a knowledge of superior beings that had dealings with humans in the past.
05:18
The nations of men are said to be set under the guidance of angels called gods.
Pagan gods and religions are not mere inventions, but rather a warped and distorted memory of the beginning.
Pagan beliefs and stories of the gods may contain some truth, albeit distorted.
00:05in the ancient epics uh and myths of
00:08course the gods show up all the time
00:11they're an essential part of the myths
00:13so uh the question is were the Greek
00:16God's real and there's a number of ways
00:17to answer this but um they they they all
00:20determine they all are are driven by a
00:24certain outlooks on history on the
00:27supernatural uh on the origins of man
00:30and uh here's the way I approach the
00:33question uh first of all uh my my uh
00:36going assumption uh is that there's a
00:38grain of truth behind all the myths and
00:40myths don't arise for no reason where
00:42that grain of Truth is is another
00:44question of course but there's a there's
00:45a grain of truth behind all the myths
00:47and legends something causes them to
00:49arise uh
00:51secondly in the scripture we see if we
00:54take the Old Testament account of the
00:56origins of man and of Nations seriously
00:58we see that all human beings have come
01:00from a common ancestor not just Adam but
01:02filtered down through Noah and his three
01:04sons because everyone is wiped out in
01:05the flood and then Noah and his three
01:07sons uh through Noah and his three sons
01:09the Earth is repopulated and so we read
01:11in the early chapters of Genesis uh that
01:14the three sons of Noah become the
01:15progenitors of the nations of the earth
01:17and where these nations have where where
01:19the where their descendants have spread
01:20out to but if we think about the way
01:22Generations work about the the dynamic
01:25that goes on between parents and the
01:27children that they're raising parents
01:29teach their children things parents tell
01:31them where they came from parents tell
01:33their children what the history of their
01:35family is and so uh if we if we think
01:38about what the generations after no and
01:40his three sons would have been doing
01:41they would be passing on the knowledge
01:43that they have and it would be
01:44especially motivated by the fact that
01:46the Earth has been destroyed and they
01:48are the only people and they need to
01:49tell their children what the Earth had
01:51been they need to pass on to their
01:53children into Generations what uh the
01:55world had known before the world was
01:57wiped out so it's inconceivable able to
02:00me that Noah and his three sons would
02:02pass on to the to immediately subsequent
02:05Generations um uh uh information about
02:08the the about the past world without
02:10knowledge of the Angels the cherubim
02:14that guard the guarden of Eden who would
02:16have been known by 2,000 years of of
02:18generations until the flood removed the
02:20necessity of cherubim guarding the
02:22Garden of Eden um it's inconceivable
02:24that they would have passed on knowledge
02:25about the past without talking about
02:27having walked with God in the garden
02:28about having been given information that
02:30we can never uh that we can never
02:32receive um about knowing that uh the uh
02:36that the sons of God uh uh fell in love
02:38with and intermarried the daughters of
02:40men and produced a race of Giants and
02:42that of course uh is an entirely new
02:44topic that can get be gotten into
02:45another time but in my opinion that's
02:47the that's an account of angels uh
02:49mixing it up with human beings so Noah
02:52and his sons would have passed on
02:53knowledge of transcendent beings uh God
02:56himself and the and the superior created
02:58beings we call the angels to subsequent
03:01Generations no one has three sons
03:03presumably are are godly people uh so
03:06they tell the story straight but as uh
03:08as later generations continue to pass on
03:10the stories because parents don't simply
03:12stop telling the stories they're
03:14wonderful stories but as the stories get
03:16passed on from generation to generation
03:18stories can get Warped and changed just
03:20in the natural process of repeating a
03:22story like the game of telephone where
03:24you sit around in a circle and whisper
03:25in one another's ear and by the time the
03:27tail get back gets back to the to the to
03:29the person who starts the tale it's it's
03:31been changed sometimes all out of all
03:33recognition there's a natural um a
03:36natural sort of tendency for stories to
03:38change but there's also a motivation for
03:40stories to change when uh later
03:42generations after Noah and their three
03:44sons become rebellious and no longer
03:46walk with God it's one thing to pass on
03:49a story about a God uh about a God who
03:53who loves you uh and with whom you have
03:55a good relationship but it's another
03:56story it's another idea um a whole
03:59another thing to pass on a story about a
04:01God who cares about your morality who
04:03cares about the state of your heart uh
04:05who has expectations about you so I can
04:09conceive quite easily of the stories of
04:10God and the angels being passed on from
04:12generation to generation but being
04:14changed so that we can live with them so
04:16that I don't have to talk about a God to
04:17whom I'm I'm accountable he's still
04:19there and these Angelic beings to whom
04:22God has given power and authority over
04:23the nations of the earth uh uh that that
04:26knowledge is still there but I changed
04:28the story so that I live with them and I
04:30tell my children uh different stories
04:33about these powerful beings so the end
04:35result would be um uh stories about gods
04:39that um expect only uh a smoking sheep
04:42thrown at them now and then in sacrifice
04:45uh a God who only cares that you fulfill
04:47the rituals and the rights but doesn't
04:48care about the state of your heart
04:50that's a God you can live with and
04:51that's a God Like Zeus and Apollo and
04:54and uh you know Hera and and uh and the
04:56other gods so it seems to me that that
04:59since all myths have a grain of Truth
05:02and since the origin of man is what the
05:05scripture tells us it is and there had
05:06been a knowledge of superior beings
05:08called angels and these angels according
05:10to the Old Testament have been given
05:11power over the nations of men we see
05:13that in Daniel when the uh when when a
05:15wicked Prince of Persia withstands
05:17Michael the Archangel the prince of
05:18Israel when he's coming to Aid Daniel we
05:21see this in Deuteronomy where we're told
05:23that the nations of men are set under
05:25the GU guidance of the of the Angels
05:27called gods in the Psalms and all the
05:29these things suggest to me that the
05:30stories of the gods are not simply made
05:32up fiction and the stories of the gods
05:34are based on reality the actual things
05:37that are told about the gods and the
05:38myths may not be true but they probably
05:40are based on a knowledge that they are
05:42superior beings which have had dealings
05:44with men in the past uh and there's one
05:46one other point that we might make about
05:48this as well to say that um pagan gods
05:52and Pagan religions are mere inventions
05:54entire falsehoods and there's no truth
05:57to it until Christianity comes along is
05:59to be thinking like an evolutionist
06:01evolutionists tell us that we evolve
06:03from cavemen or from apes swinging in
06:05the trees and then gradually the idea of
06:07religion starts with being terrified of
06:09the Thunder and then a Priestly class
06:11saying I have a way of taking away your
06:12fear and so on that's an evolutionary
06:14theory but when we Christians say that
06:17the gods are entirely false and there's
06:19no uh truth to them at all we're talking
06:21like those
06:22evolutionists um instead of saying that
06:25um uh paganism is entirely false and it
06:27needs to be entirely rejected as though
06:30there's no value in it at all we need to
06:32think rather that the pagans were not
06:34the first people on the Earth that's
06:36what an evolutionist would tell us it
06:38was Believers in God who were the first
06:40people on the Earth pagans came along
06:42and rejected the truth but they didn't
06:44reject it by throwing it away entirely
06:46they just warp it and distort it so that
06:47they can live with it so as Christians
06:49we look at Pagan thought Pagan
06:51philosophy Pagan religion Pagan beliefs
06:54uh Pagan stories of the Gods and we can
06:56discern in it a warped distorted memory
07:00of the
07:03beginning
