Thinking Theologically: Sacred Texts and Sacred Text by LV Boloix

In the pagan and polytheist communities, generally and across the board, I’ve observed a strange love/hate relationship with the concepts of sacred texts. Many in our communities express disgust, hatred, or apathy towards the idea of having a sacred text, mostly out of (mis)understanding a strong affiliation of sacred text and scripture often to the point of conflating the both of them. Many pagans express a pride of being liberated from rules, statutes, and stories from sacred books – from things that are the cornerstone of religions such as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, adherents of which have been named “people of the book.”
