One thing I’ve noticed is that Christians try to vilify paganism, but actually just makes it sound more and more awesome. Same with sexuality among other things. This is usually the taboo effect, when something is made forbidden it usually entices the person to it. However, I feel there is something else in effect as well, and the taboo draw is just the start.
I think that mankind has a timeless attraction to the things that Christianity attempts to proselytize against, such as sexuality, our nature as humans, mysticism, and the wild side of existence. And the taboo against these things only strengthens our attraction and fascination towards them. Being cut off from these things makes us miss them so much that we want them so much more.
Our love of what we usually call sin is more than just the taboo effect. It is also the mark of our timeless love of it.
