Paganism In Christianity

Mark 7:8, “You have let go the commandment of God to keep the commandments of men.”


Some Christians in churches today become highly offended when you try to tell them of the traditions of men that have slowly seeped into the faith over the past few centuries.

Many stubbornly, hold tightly to these “traditions”, with deep psychological emotions. And to make the situation worse, much of these things that they are holding tightly to, did not even come from God, but came from the altars and practices of the ancient gods dating back to biblical times. The same practices that Jehovah said that he detested, found to be an abomination, and destroyed thousands for practicing.


Instead of going to the Bible to study the scriptures in prayer and to examine for themselves, to see if they are on the straight and narrow, they seek the opinions of other men who are stumbling on the same path. They often do this, because it is not truth they seek, but reassurance that their continuance in such things is not so offensive to God, that He blots out their name.


Some are so emotionally attached to what they love that after getting their reassurance, they will distance themselves from the voice of the one who pointed out the error.


THE IGNORED SCRIPTURE

It is well known, even by those of the Catholic faith, that part of the history of the Catholic Church is how they adopted pagan customs, and changed the name of the gods to those of the Christian God, in attempts to win the pagans to the Catholic faith. This is why Halloween, Christmas (originally Christ Mass), and Easter (Ishtar) all got changed. You can now even find the festival Easter written in the Bible in place of Passover, thanks to the Catholic Church.


Just look at how Passover is celebrated and compare it to how Easter is celebrated. These two are nothing alike.


This is why if you look at all the statues that are supposed to be mother Mary and Yeshua, you will see a sun behind the mother's head. Because these statues were originally, the sun god, the goddess, and the sun god reincarnate or as some call him, the son of the sun god. This is the spiritual confusion that has been mixed in with the true Christianity. And part of the reason why so many claim that the Son of God is the sun god.


These pagan festivities over the centuries, have since been adopted by other Christian denominations, who have long forgotten the reason why believers did not celebrate these days. There were sects who held out and distanced themselves, trying to keep the faith of Christ pure, but slowly these traditions took over and became the norm.


By disregarding the old testament passages all together, believers throw out verses like Deuteronomy 12:30-32: When Jehovah, your God shall cut off the nations from before you, where you go to war them, and you succeed them, and dwell in their land; take heed to yourself that you be not snared by following after them, after that they be destroyed from before you; and that you inquire not after their gods, saying, how did these nations serve their gods? Even so, will I do likewise. You shall not do so unto Jehovah, your God: for every abomination to Jehovah, which he hates, have they done to their gods; for even their sons and their daughters have they burnt in the fire to their gods. Whatsoever thing I command you, observe to do it: You shall not add to it or take from it.


After hearing this verse, some point out that the pagan festivities adopted by the Catholics and handed down to other Christian denominations do not practice child sacrifice. They totally miss the point. Everything these pagans did is not listed. The verse does make it obvious that there are many kinds of worship/servitude given to these other gods that Jehovah finds abominable, but the fact that they burned their children in the fire was pointed out, probably because it was the most horrific.


HISTORICAL EVIDENCE

Many have heard of the pagan origins of these yearly festivities, yet they make excuses to continue in their ways. Their claims are that they are not celebrating the pagan god in their heart, but Christ. Others close their eyes, and say that there is not enough evidence, yet they most likely have never looked for evidence because many books, historical records, and archaeological finds, bring the evidence. However, I am not here to force you to change your mind, I am only here to inform and plant a seed.


The History:

Tammuz was the sun god reincarnate, who was killed by a wild pig when he was 40. So his mother, the goddess Semiramis, declared a forty day fast from meat, one day for each year of Tammuz's life, to be done in his honor, annually. At the end of this fast, they would consume pig, because a pig had killed Tammuz. During this time, they would weep for Tammuz.


Now let me take you to scripture:

Ezekiel 8:13-16: He said unto me, turn you yet again, and you shall see greater abominations that they do. Then he brought me to the door of the gate of Jehovah's house that was towards the north; and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Then he said unto me, have you seen this, O son of man? Turn you yet again, and you shall see greater abominations than these. And he brought me into the inner court of Jehovah's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of Jehovah, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men, with their backs towards the temple of Jehovah, and their faces towards the east, and they worshiped the sun towards the east.


You can probably guess what this festivity has been adopted and changed to.

Semiramis, who in other cultures became known as Ishtar, is the queen/whore of Babylon that the scriptures speak of. And all of this goes all the way back to Nimrod.

This is just a few instances that once you do the research, the scriptures that you have read over several times, instantly makes more sense.


SPIRITUAL DOORS

Lets look at how one prepares for Christmas. People go out and get a fir tree, they bring it into their house, and they fix it, so that it does not move. They then decorate it and place presents beneath it. If you were to ask why they do these things or how does it relate to Christ in the scriptures, many cannot answer. The few who do, its usually a made up one that makes little sense. In fact, everyone who celebrates in the name of Christ, will give a different answer in a tone of uncertainty.


The truth of the matter is that a lot of traditions that Christians have adopted were done by the pagans to open spiritual doors, so that their gods/goddesses could step back through from the spirit world to this world.


They used the palm tree in Egypt, and in pagan Rome, they used the fir tree. The tree symbolized the rebirth of the sun god, Baal. His spirit would be reborn through the tree on his birthday, December 25th, and he would leave presents before leaving the home where he was invited. Even the yule log, the mistletoe, all holds a demonic spiritual ties to the root beliefs, and customs of the festivities intended purpose.


Ever wonder why there are so many drunken brawls, domestic violence disputes, and other evils on or around the holidays, with Christmas being one of the worse. Could it be the not so jolly, deceitful Christmas spirit?


It is the same when it comes to Easter. The bunnies, the colorful eggs, the candy, the egg hunt, and baskets... none of these are rooted in Christianity, and again, no one can show scripture where any of these festivities make any biblical sense. Because these festive activities were created to open spiritual doors to the pagan gods.


Same thing goes for Halloween and nearly every celebration that has been taken from the pagans. This is why God commanded us not to participate in it and not to worship him in those ways, because we could be ignorantly opening doors to these demonic spirits that the pagans worshiped.


THE DIMMED LIGHT

The light of Christ should shine in and through us. We should be as a light house in a darkened world. We should salt the earth with the truth. Be the voice in the wilderness, standing unafraid as warriors, but the light of the church has grown dim.


Sadly, our historical religious leaders made compromises with the darkness, mixing in the traditions of abominations with the holy scriptures. The church that once was a burning fire has turned to embers and ashes. The faith has become watered down through the generations, as the hearts of believers have become corrupted with pagan rituals, that the scriptures have always condemn.


As we have entered into the great falling away, it is good to see so many in the faith waking up, and coming out of the Babylonian celebrations. Thousands have all ready separated themselves from these traditions, and have sought out God in the ways which He has ordained Himself to be worshiped.


It is so important for us to become grounded in pure faith because I do believe that there is a sifting coming and many hearts will be revealed.


IT MATTERS

I have brought this matter up, not to condemn anyone for being ignorant of the traditions that we were all brought up in. I bring it up, to sound the alarm, and I scream to you 'DANGER!” Those who hear and choose to ignore, because they claim to worship Jehovah in their own way, while excusing themselves around what He said, is playing spiritually dangerous games. We do not get to worship God in our own way or by our own customs or traditions. His word is very clear how we are to worship him. Jehovah wants our worship of Him to not only be separate, but look different from how the pagans worship their gods.


My friends, if one pagan thing can be sanctified and used to honor God, explain why they all cannot be? Do we really get to pick and choose? Just as the Quiji Board acts as a portal for demonic entities, the Christmas Tree acts as a pagan portal for Baal. That is what the pagans used it for. And now millions who profess Christ, put one up annually in their homes. The same can be said for the Easter/Ishtar bunny and Ishtar eggs.


Matthew 15:8-9: This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, and honors me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines, the commandments of men.

Mark 7:9: And he said unto them, full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition.


Early believers never adopted pagan customs, so they never would have celebrated God the way that the churches today do. They would have seen it as a grave abomination. That is why you will not find one instance in the Bible where those who were obeying God, adopted paganism rituals as a means of worshiping God.


Colossians 2:8: Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principals of the world, and not according to Messiah.


Ephesians 4:13-15: Till we all come in the unity of faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of a stature of the fullness of Christ. That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; but speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.
