"O L-RD, Who are my power and my strength and my refuge in the day of trouble, to You nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, 'Only lies have our fathers handed down to us, emptiness in which there is nothing of any avail! Can a man make gods for himself, and they are no gods? 'Therefore, behold I let them know; at this time I will let them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My Name is the L-RD".

Sun-God” Worship
in Christendom

“In Hellenistic and Roman art the sun-god Helios
and Roman emperors often appear with a crown of rays.
Because of its pagan origin, the form was avoided
in Early Christian art, but a simple circular nimbus
was adopted by Christian emperors for their official
portraits.”

“Another sign of sun worship is the halo.
Halos are pictured as a luminous ring or a disk
of light that surrounds an object.
Webster’s Dictionary describes a halo as the
aura of glory,  veneration, or sentiment
surrounding an idealized person or thing.”
-Sun Worship in Christianity?
A study by Timothy Youngblood

“it was the ancient pagans that originated this
practice of using halos or “sun-disks” to signify
the divinity of the sun god Ray.  Many of the customs
and much of the icons of our worlds religions
were adapted from paganism, and Sun worship is what
spawned the use of these sun disks in pictures
and graven images.”
-Sun Worship in Christianity?
A study by Timothy Youngblood

“The truth is that the halo did not come into
Christian art until the third century – at a time
when the Catholic Church grabbed it from the pagans.”

THE PAGAN HALO OF SUN GOD WORSHIP ADOPTED FOR CHRISTIAN ART

“The Catholics adopted the halo from Paganism
to indicate that a person was a saint.”
-Fossilized Customs
by Lew White

“In the oldest images of sun-gods
the halo takes the form either of a plain disk
or of beams of light radiating from their heads.
In Egypt the sun disk of Re, Hathor and Sakhmet
appears above the head as part of a crown.
The radiant type of nimbus is typical of Amaterasu,
Mithras, Apollo and Helios/Sol, and hence of certain
deified Roman emperors. The oldest extant images
of Hindu deities with a nimbus belong to the 2nd
through the 4th cents. AD.  The nimbus appears
in Christian art about the 5th cent. when the
western Roman Empire was collapsing and the Church,
adopted many pagan imperial formulae.”
-Illustrated Dictionary of Symbols
in Eastern and Western Art; James Hall
“The Mithraic cult (of the god “Mithra”) was also
an influence; as Christianity gradually supplanted
(and absorbed) worship of the sun-god. Churches were
built over Mithraic temples where haloed images of
Mithras and the sun-god Sol may still be seen today.”
-Illustrated Dictionary of Symbols
in Eastern and Western Art; James Hall

GREEK SUN GOD WITH HALO AND BABYLONIAN SUN GOD WITH SUN RAYS

“A Solar Deity (also Sun God(dess)),
is a deity who represents the sun,
or an aspect of it. People have worshiped
the sun for all of recorded history.
Sun worship was exceptionally prevalent
in ancient Egyptian religion. The earliest
deities associated with the sun are Wadjet,
Sekhmet, Hathor, Nut, Bast, Bat, and Menhit.
First Hathor, and then Isis, give birth to
and nurse Horus and Ra.”
-The Art of Oneness
by David Shearer

“A halo is an optical phenomenon that appears
near or around the Sun or Moon.  Christianity
adopted forms of sun worship which is why they
worship on “Sun”day and why the son of god has
a halo (and so do the saints).”

by David Shearer

HALOS IN SUN WORSHIP

“The Halo, also called Nimbus, in art,
is a radiant circle or disk surrounding
the head of a holy person, a representation
of spiritual character through the symbolism
of light.  From the middle of the 4th century,
Christ was also shown with this imperial attribute,
as was his symbol, the Lamb of God, from the end
of the 4th century. In the 5th century it was
sometimes given to angels, but it was not until
the 6th century that the halo became customary
for the Virgin Mary and other saints.
For a period during the 5th century,
living persons of eminence were depicted
with a round or square nimbus.  The halo is also
found in Buddhist art of India, appearing from
the late 3rd century AD. It is believed that the
motif was brought to the East by Greek invaders.”

with the pagan Greeks and Romans to represent
their sun god, Helios. Later artists adopted it

THE HALOS OF SUN GOD WORSHIP

“In the plastic arts (painting and sculpture)
the symbolism of the nimbus was early in use
among the pagans who determined its form.
In the monuments of Hellenic and Roman art,
the heads of the gods, heroes, and other distinguished
persons are often found with a disc-shaped halo,
a circle of light, or a rayed-fillet. They are,
therefore, associated especially with gods and
creatures of light such as the Phoenix.
The disc of light is likewise used in the
Pompeian wall paintings to typify gods and
demigods only.”

also the simple halo.  Furthermore the Middle Ages

“the nimbus was in use long before the Christian era.
According to the exhaustive researches of Stephani
it was an invention of the Hellenic epoch.
Hence it follows that the Bible furnished no example
for the bestowal of a halo upon individual saintly
personages. As a matter of fact the nimbus,
as an inheritance from ancient pagan art tradition,
was readily adopted and ultimately found the widest
application.  In contemporary pagan art, the nimbus
was a symbol of divinity.  Towards the end of the
sixth century the use of pagan symbols in the
Christian Church became as general as it had formerly
been in pagan art.  Even Herod, received a nimbus (halo).”

“before Constantine, representations of specifically
Christian character were not influenced by pagan art
traditions. Only pictures of the sun, the seasons,
and a few ornamental heads carried a nimbus at that
date. On the other hand, several pictures of Christ
in the catacombs, dating from the fourth century,

majesty and power, in Christian art it was more and
more definitely made the emblem of such virtue and
grace.  In Germany the fish was agreed upon for the
symbol of Christ, or a fish bladder if it had the
shape of a figure 8.   God the Father is typified
in later pictures by an equilateral triangle,
or two interlaced triangles, also by a hexagon
to suggest the Trinity. If there is no circle

of the cross give the same effect.”

“Artists have developed many varieties of the nimbus,

fashioned more and more lightly and delicately.
It is true that the nimbus is not intrinsically
a part of the figure and at times even appears
heavy and intrusive.  A delicate circlet of light
shining or floating over the head does not lessen
the artistic impression.  The nimbus, like a crown,
not only characterizes and differentiates a figure
but distinguishes and exalts it as well.”

SUN GOD WORSHIP IN CHRISTENDOM

“Many symbols of sun worship are incorporated
in the Catholic church and its worship. There are
many pictures of the Pope holding what is called
a Monstrance or Ostensorium. It is used to display
a round wafer of bread, called the host, which is
used in what is called the Mass, Lord’s Supper,
Communion or Eucharistic meal. The Roman Catholic
Church calls the Monstrance a sunburst.  During
the baroque period, it took on a rayed form
of a sun-monstrance with a circular window
surrounded by a silver or gold frame with rays.”

fact that we make Sunday a day of festivity.”
-(Roberts, ANCL, XI, 449-450.)

When Nimrod died, and was made the sun god,

declared that her son, Tammuz, was in actuality the

“Nimrod’s religion is identified in scripture with Satan –
by reading Isaiah Chapter 14 and in Revelation Chapters 17-18.
By history we can prove that Babylonian religion invaded
the whole world and is the basis for every system of idolatry,
and is the theme of mythology, though the names of the gods
are different because of the various languages in the world.
The world’s major religions can be traced back to ancient Babylon.
Satan is known as the father of lies which deceiveth the whole world
(Genesis 3:1, John 8:44, Revelation 12:9), and Nimrod was the
human “father” of all false religion.”

Roman names of Venus and Jupiter, or under the names of
the “Virgin Mary” and the “Christ- child.”. Either way,

BABY JESUS COLLAGE

DECEMBER 25th
The Birth of a “sun-god”

The First man to declare himself a god, was Nimrod.
His mother, Semiramis, declared herself to be “The
Mother of god”.  Together with their son, Tammuz,
they replaced the worship of Jehovah God, with a
Triune – “trinity” mystery god.  Since Tammuz married
his own mother – he was both – “God – the Father” and
“God – the son”.

When the peoples language was confused in Babel,
they took with them the religion of Nimrod and spread
it all over the earth.

Every pagan god, and every pagan goddess has received
some aspect of Nimrod, and Semiramis worship and devotion.
All the pagan sun-gods of the world claim to have been
born on Decmeber 25th.  How appropriate that they even
copied the birthdate of the First man to oppose Jehovah
God.

Paganism is filled with sumbolism.  If you do a careful
search on Sun Worship – you will learn what these synbols
and teachings are.

When you honor and adore the “Baby Jesus” on December 25th,
you have been duped into giving the pagan sun-gods of the
world – honor, attention, and worship – without even
knowing it.  This has been going on for years.  But now
that we live in an age where data is everywhere at our
fingertips – these Deceptions are being unearthed and
exposed for what they truly are – a trick of the Devil,
to take worship away from Jehovah God and direct it at
his own seed.

“The ‘Christianization’ of Pagan Customs, Symbols, and
Terminology — Christianity had to undergo a transformation
so that pagan Rome could “convert” without giving up its
old beliefs and rituals. The actual effect was to paganize
official Christianity. A compound religion had been
manufactured, of which … Christianity furnished the
nomenclature, and Paganism furnished the doctrines and
the rights. The idolatry of the Roman world had by no
means been demolished. Instead of this, its pagan
nakedness had been covered with the garb of a deformed
Christianity.”

Everything you say is false, It’s exactly the opposite of what the catholic church teaches.
