Is Christianity Incompatible with Being Elves?

"We have simply noted and experienced that being elven
transcends any particular religion."

One might think so if one went by many old faerie stories in which elfin folk are repelled by and unable to enter churches or holy ground. This is not really different from the idea that our Unseelie vampire cousins cannot abide crosses or holy water. This is old propaganda but totally inaccurate.
     According the Laurence Gardner in his Grail series and Nicholas de Vere in his Dragon Legacy, Jesus is from the royal elven bloodline and the original formulation of Christianity was much closer to the Elven Path. The Catholic Church, according to these two authors, perverted the faith and in doing so set itself against elven for over a thousand years (de Vere calls this the Elven Holocaust), for the elves were and are the true guardians of the light.
     For our own part, we have simply noted and experienced that being elven transcends any particular religion, which is to say that those who are attracted to the Elven Way come from a variety of religions and cultures. There are elves who have come from the Christian faith and some that still practice or at least believe in its basic tenets. There are elves who tell us they are Muslim. Elves have no problem with anyone’s faith as long as they don’t attempt to force it upon us. We don’t care what you believe, only what you do, particularly in relationship to us, but in terms of the whole planet as well. And probably most religions, while not actually believing in our existence, don’t really have a difficulty with the elves.
     There are, however, fanatics of various faiths and they, by their natures, are incompatible with everyone else and every other belief and it is unlikely, in fact, near impossible for one to hold such fanatical beliefs to believe one is an elf. It is even harder to embrace such beliefs and be an elf. But then, the Universe constantly amazes us. It is, after all, a most miraculous and amazing place.

but there is no doubt in our minds that Jesus does."

"The Elven Way passes beyond the fields of the known
into the forest of the unknown illuminated by the glow of the elves."
(quote on the top of the book cover)

THE ELVEN WAY: The Magical Path of the Shining Ones describes the Mystical, Magical, Spiritual Path of the Elf folk and their connection to the Shining Ones, those supra-dimensional beings who are our guides, guardians, ancient kindred and the source of Elven enlightenment. The Elven Way takes the reader beyond the field of the known and lays the road into the forest of unknown, revealing new, wonderful and exciting secrets about the world of Magic, the Path of the Elves and the rich Elven heritage. This book is about High Elven Spirituality and Magick, the philosophy of the Elven Way, and the teachings of the Elves. It is written for all elves and all those interested in learning more about and following the Elven Path, for advanced Elven adepts and magical folk of all kinds. The Elven Way reveals much about the Shining Ones, who are the ancient elves and our guardians, our Eldars, who are highly advanced and divine beings that help and protect the modern Elven folk today. It explores both the psychological and the spiritual component of the Elven folk and the development of this component! The Elven Way provides a vast reservoir of knowledge about how this world is arranged and how it works, who the elves are, and what is the Elven Spiritual Path!

And for further reading on the elven way and lifestyle, we suggest:

THE MAGICAL REALMS OF ELFIN: Answers to Questions About Being an Elf and Following the Elven Path contains questions and answers about being elven that many people who are exploring the Elven Way have posed to The Silver Elves throughout the 40 + years that they have been living and sharing the Elven Way. The Silver Elves have put them all in this one book for all those who need a convenient, yet thorough and easy-to-read, resource to explore their questions about who the modern elves are and about the Elven Way or elven spiritual path — past, present and future. If you are curious about elves and want to learn more about modern elves and the Elven Path, then you will surely find this book to contain many of your questions answered and it will be a great comfort and help in finding your way home to the Magical Realms of Elfin.

"When elves say that every elf is a star, we not only mean it in a Cosmic way that each elf is a unique manifestation of the Light of the Universe but we also mean it in a Hollywood way that every elf is a radiant personality manifesting enchantment in the world."

Please touch this star dear Kindred for an Elven Blessing!
