Nyi Roro Kidul, Mother Of Maria And Practice Of Paganism

ISL4M.COM, TANJUNG ENIM - Since ancient times, paganists have always worshiped the goddesses, especially Earth Gods or Earth Goddesses.

The characteristics of paganism are characterized by various rituals and mythologies with the same signs or phenomena, such as worshiping nature, respecting the highest balance of the cosmos, worshiping gods, statues, magical powers, ancestral spirits, animism, dynamism, sacred objects, sacred symbols and horoscope or astrology.

Another characteristic of paganism is the spells, offerings, offerings, altar and smoke or incense or incense to add to the mystical atmosphere.

Return to ancient paganism again. Goddess Earth is described as a beautiful goddess, symbolizing fertility, fertile farmland, a symbol of prosperity, love and generosity. The ancient Javanese always made statues of Dewi Sri, to be praised as a form of gratitude when the harvest arrived. The Dewi Sri statue is often placed in a sentong or a kind of room or in a rice storage barn.

In the tradition of the Mataram Kingdom in Java, it was believed that there were queen rulers in the south coast. Nyai Roro Kidul. He is described as a beautiful goddess, who has magical powers and collaborates with the rulers of King Mataram in governing the kingdom. Every person who is washed along the southern coast of Java is believed to be a victim or victim of Nyai to be a servant or retainer of the South Sea kingdom. Every Syuro date is held a harbor to honor Nyai Roro Kidul. Likewise fishermen along the southern coast often hold sea alms to offer sacrifices to Nyai.

Meanwhile, Hindu traditions, especially in Bali, are worshiped by Goddess Saraswati. He is known as a beautiful goddess, knowledgeable knowledge, wisdom and wisdom. At each ritual ceremony textbooks are placed for purification in front of the goddess statue.

The teaching of paganism about the worship of the goddess was very influential in the Christian world so that in 431 AD, at the time of the convening of the Council in the city of Ephesus, Mary was proclaimed as the Mother of God. Since then the Proclamation has been accepted as something in accordance with the Bible and as a benchmark for their faith. FYI, in the city of Ephesus stands a magnificent temple to worship Goddess Artemis. With the appointment of Mary as the Mother of God, it is clear that the decree from the results of the Council of Ephesus has come down which gives the status of "divinity" or the divinity of Mary. With the letter of rapture, Mary's status from the mother of man changed to become the Mother of God. Thus the status of the divinity of Mary was obtained approximately 400 years after her death.

In Sendangsono, Kulon Progo Yogyakarta was made Gua Gua as a place for Christian pilgrimage. Similarly, Sendang Sriningsih in Klaten, Central Java, in Kediri, East Java, in NTT, Timor Leste and others. These places are often held ritual ceremonies in the cave of worship.

In Indonesia, there are no less than 52 places of pilgrimage that begin with the phenomenon of the appearance of the Virgin Mary. In front of the statue of the Virgin Mary, the Christians prayed, just as did paganists.

Even though in the Gospel itself reminds Christians, "My children, beware of all idols" (I John 5:21).

Regarding the practice of worshiping other creatures or worshiping Jesus or Mary, Islam has reminded in the message contained in the Qur'an:

And (remember) when Allah said, "O Isa son of Mary, do you say to man,‘ Make me and my mother two gods besides Allah '? Isa replied, "Glory to You, it is not proper for me to say what is not my right (say it). If I ever say it, then surely you know it. You know what is in me, and I do not know what is in You. Surely you know things that are unseen.

I have never told them except what You commanded me (say), namely, 'Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord,' and I am a witness against them, as long as I am among them. Then after you have forgiven me. You are watching over them. And You are the Witness of all things. (Surah Almaidah verses 116-117). Wallahu A'lam.
