Isis is Not

This bronze statuette, on display at Liverpool Museum, is of the Egyptian goddess Isis and her child Horus, and dates to about 664 - 332 BC, though the place of its excavation is unrecorded. Does it not resemble the so-called Blessed Virgin Mary, holding a child upon her breast as she sits atop a throne? The two even share the same title as well as pose: the Queen of Heaven. Whichever Egyptian charlatan invented this goddess must be amazed to think that, four thousand years later, she is still venerated and worshipped, while the real King of heaven continues to be relegated and ignored. The days are coming when such idols will be destroyed at last, and the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the water cover the sea (Is 11:19). Hasten Lord the day.
