Origins of Christianity

Excerpt from The House of Yahweh monthly publication…

By harnessing the emotions generated by pagan religions, one can truthfully say that the pagan religions are a part of Christianity.

– Constantine, was also the leader of the First Council of Nicaea in the year 325 C.E.
– Sunday worship was established for Christianity at that time
.

The Christian church did not want to have anything to do with the ‘‘wicked rabble of the Jews,’’ including Yahweh’s Seventh Day Sabbath. Easter, or the worship of the Goddess, Eostre, was established at that Council because Passover was part of the ‘‘Jewish’’ religion. The doctrine of the trinity was established and Yahweh’s Feasts were changed to the pagan celebrations the deceived Christian world celebrates today.

Daniyl 7:24-25
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that will arise; and another will rise after them; and he will be different from the first ones, and he will subdue three kings.
25 And he will speak great words against Yahweh, and will wear out; mentally attack to cause to fall away, the Saints of Yahweh, and think to change times; Yahweh’s Feast Days and Laws; and they will be given into his hand until a time, and times, and the dividing of time.

– History has proven this Prophecy correct.
– The last, diverse kingdom that subdued three kingdoms is the religious power of papal Rome.
– This religious power changed the Feast days of Yahweh to the pagan festivals that were already popular
.

The most popular pagan festival was the birthday of the invincible sun on December 25th. The Mithraic and Roman religions were already celebrating the rebirth of the sun.

It was not a hard task to place the mask of Christianity over this pagan birthdate and call it the birthday of Jesus.

Strange Stories Amazing Facts, by The Readers Digest Association, pages 283-284, says:

Christmas and Easter, although the greatest festivals in the Christian calendar, are celebrated with customs that originated in superstition and heathen rites hundreds of years before Christ was born.

Even the dates owe more to pagan practices than to the birth and resurrection of Jesus.

It was not until the fourth century that December 25 was fixed arbitrarily as the anniversary of the Nativity because the pagan festivals from which so many Christmas customs spring were held around that time.

Although Christianity has swept the world in a relatively short time, as the histories of great religions go, the early missionaries faced an uphill task. The pagans were reluctant to give up their false gods and ancient practices.

So the missionaries, unable to convert them easily to an entirely new code of worship, did the next best thing. They took the pagan festivals as they were and gradually grafted the observances of the new faith onto these festivals and the rites and customs surrounding them.

December 25 was not called Christmas until the ninth century. Until then it had been the Midwinter Feast, a combination of the Norse Yule Festival and the Roman Saturnalia, both of which took place in late December.
