Constantine: Satan’s Homeboy [CHURCH BUILDINGS ARE UNBIBLICAL!!!!!!]

Many well-meaning “Christians” today dress up in their Sunday-best, file into church every Sunday morning, sit down at the pews trying ever-so-hard to look dignified, and then stare straight ahead to “listen to” the choir and/or the priest/pastor.  And every so often in church, they take part of the “communion table”, answer an “altar call”, “put money into the offering plate”, etc.

And they feel perfectly comfortable while doing so, because hey, it’s “tradition”, right?

Now think about that word for awhile: tradition. Let it sink in. Meditate on it for awhile. The Miriam-Webster dictionary defines “tradition” as: “a way of thinking, behaving, or doing something that has been used by the people in a particular group, family, society, etc., for a long time; Cultural continuity in social attitudes, customs, and institutions, etc.”

Okay, now lets turn to the bible to see what Jesus Christ Almighty had to say about the word tradition:

And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition – Mark 7:9

But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?“- Mark 15:3

Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth 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 15:6b-9

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” – Luke 6:46

So in other words, ALL modern-day church buildings (ALL OF THEM, NO EXCEPTIONS) have “transgressed the law of God” to follow man’s OWN TRADITION!!! Because the bible actually CONDEMNS “church buildings”.

Please remember that in Matthew 27:51 “And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent”. Translation? THE TEMPLE WAS NO LONGER NEEDED AS JESUS CHRIST *HIMSELF* BECAME THE TEMPLE, ALONG WITH THE *BODY OF BELIEVERS*!

So BECAUSE of this, 1st century Christians were smart and HAD no “buildings” to meet in but rather, met in private homes of about the small size of 5-35 people or so. And several “house gatherings” were had throughout the city of Jerusalem. But they did NOT consider themselves “separate groups/denominations” like you see today. Rather, they were ONE group, ONE believing body. EVERY single person was treated equally and given the “ability” to “minister” onto all the others. That way, they each brought their OWN insights from the Lord TO the meeting and EVERYONE maintained eye contact with one another and benefited. They were all equal in the eyes of Jesus Christ Almighty and Jesus Christ Almighty HIMSELF was the “head of the church, the *chief cornerstone* and the head of the *gathering*!

{And please note: Many people think that Constantine made it so that “Christians” weren’t persecuted anymore, PERIOD. But that’s just simple not true, folks! What Constantine did — along with the help of “Catholic bishops” — is PERSECUTE the *TRUE CHRISTIANS* (those who held to the BIBLICAL “Jewish precepts” of their religion! So YES……..TRUE/BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS were STILL persecuted under the “rule” of Constantine, unfortunately……}

However, the start of the “church building” (where the “priest/pastor” was considered ABOVE the “laity” and where the “laity” were SILENCED and NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK, etc.) began with Constantine. Sadly, many Christians and historians today tout Constantine as the “great hero” and “spreader of Christianity all throughout the Roman Empire” but what they DON’T realize is THIS: the TYPE of “Christianity” that Constantine “spread all throughout the Roman Empire” was a FALSE RELIGIOUS SYSTEM based on PAGAN PRECEPTS!

The truth is, Constantine no doubt “admired” many of the “Pagan temples” he saw around the Roman Empire and came up with the MORTAL IDEA that “hey, Christians should have THEIR own building to worship in, as well”, even going so far as to MODEL these “basilicas” AFTER the “Pagan temples” of his day. He also saw Jesus AS the Sun god, Helios, and inserted sun god symbols all throughout the basilicas and even went so far (during the 325AD or so Council of Nicea) to CHANGE GOD’S HOLY, SANCTIFIED 7TH DAY SABBATH to SUN-DAY (venerable worship day of the SUN), so he could CONTINUE to worship the “sun god, Helios” in the IMAGE of Jesus Christ! (BLASHPHEMY!!!!)

And not only THAT, but it gets much worse, historical wise. At the 365AD Council of Laodicea, it even BECAME A CRIME to worship on the Lord’s TRUE *biblically-mandated* 7th-Day Sabbath and ALSO to celebrate in the Lord’s (once again) *biblically-mandated* 7 Annual Feasts (such as Passover, Pentecost, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.) In addition to fasting, praying or eating of “unleavened bread”. On the other hand, “Christians/Jews” of that that time were COMMANDED by Constantine/Catholic bishop/other Roman imperial leaders to eat UNCLEAN FOODS (such as pork), to worship on PAGAN holidays (such as Christmas, Easter, etc.) and to WORK on the 7th Day Sabbath and REST on Sun-Day, which was all CLEARLY CONDEMNED IN THE BIBLE!

And IF a Christian/Jewish person refused to comply with Constantine’s demands, they were PUNISHED (most times, imprisoned/executed). So tell me. Is Constantine “such a great hero” in your mind, NOW? HE, along with the Catholic Church, PERSECUTED THE LORD’S TRUE PEOPLE!

And one of the REASONS Constantine was so successful to get people AWAY from true biblical, Jewish-roots Christianity is because Anti-Jewish sentiment was HIGH at that time. Why? Because the “Christians” blamed the JEWS for the execution of Jesus Christ! So they saw all Jews as “evil” and wanted to have nothing to do with “all things Jewish”. Constantine, in retrospect, took high advantage of this and decided that the Lord’s commands in the bible were “Jewish only” and NO LONGER APPLIED TO THE LORD’S PEOPLE (that is, to say, “Christians”).

However, a few “Christians” out there were wise enough to defy the attack on the Lord’s people and the Lord’s commandments and REFUSED to obey Constantine and/or the Roman Catholic Church (and many payed with their very own LIVES for it!) Today, those people are known as Jewish-roots Christians, Messianic Christians, Jewish Christians, Christian Jews, or Judeo-Christians, respectively.

Truth be told, Constantine, like the Roman Catholic Church, HATED the real, true, biblical Jesus Christ, and the Lord’s law and the Lord’s people. Almost as much as Hitler did, if not more so!

Basically, the made the “Christianity” of today nothing more than BABYLONIAN/PAGAN SUN WORSHIP, REPACKAGED.

So people: I beg of you! GET OUT OF THE CHURCHES AND THE “CHURCH SYSTEM” WHILE YOU STILL CAN! Your eternal salvation depends on it, MARK MY WORDS!!!!!

And remember that, during the time of the White Throne Judgement, Jesus Christ is going to say to/about MANY, MANY, MANY people in Matthew 7:21-13:

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heavenMany will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”

Plus remember that Matthew 7:21 is a FOLLOW-UP to Luke 6:46 which states: “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”

[Now, is that to say that a true body of believers/assembly in Christ CAN’T meet in a church building every week? No. Not necessarily…….It just means that they can’t CALL the “church building” the “house of God”, and they also can’t SAY they are “going TO church” (if they want to be TRULY biblically accurate) for each believer in Christ IS “the church”.

Also as well: if EACH person gets to say their own individual input into what the Lord has taught them that week, that’s considered a biblical model of worship. Some might say that sermons are okay because “each person” gets to speak individually during bible study.

But “sermons” (as a whole) are still biblically inaccurate since a) it sets the “laity” above the churchgoers, and the bible says ALL believers are considered “equal”, in importance and are called “ministers unto God/Jesus Christ” and b) the institutionalized church service is a solemn assembly when the bible says “church gatherings” are supposed to be a JOYOUS assembly, REJOICING in Jesus Christ’s resurrection & ascension, while ALSO talking about the important of repentance of sins! and c) “the church”, that is, the body of believers in Christ — as a whole — are supposed to go out INTO the world to preach the gospel and not “hide” behind 4 walls every week!]

If you’ve EVER sat through a church service and wondered why it is you don’t seem to be growing at all in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ or why you feel like you’re just going through the motions, etc., then the following book is for YOU!

As Christians, we can either CONTINUE with “tradition” as is and be led on the path to eternal darkness, keep going to church every SUN-DAY and following “Pagan traditions of men”, thus taking the “blue pill”.

OR……..we (as Christians) can choose to be enlightened, shown what the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ is, have a TRUE life-changing spiritual relationship with him, and DEFY all things Pagan, and read (and APPLY) the following 2 books……..thus taking the “red pill” [realizing the “reality” of modern-day church traditions].

[Note: The “blue pill” and “red pill” are a reference to the movie called “The Matrix”. In the movie, the character Neo is more or less told: “take the blue pill and you can go back to your life, believing whatever you want to believe, and follow in your own tradition – but take the red pill, and you will see just how far down the rabbit hole [of reality] goes”].

PAGAN CHRISTIANITY and it’s SEQUEL…. PAGAN CHRISTIANITY2

“Modern-Day Christianity” is COUNTERFEIT!

Going to church every Sunday morning (if one is “Christian”), partaking in Easter, Halloween, St.Patrick’s/St. Valentine’s Day, Christmas and praying the “sinner’s prayer” almost comes 2nd nature to most “Christians” out there. But is it even BIBLICAL? Let us examine the evidence.

After the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, “anti-Jewish sentiment” (due to many “Christians” blaming the “Orthodox Jews” FOR his crucifixion) was at an all time high. During the time of Constantine, it was even higher! In fact, the Roman “culture” at the time was attempting to “separate themselves” from the Jews and have nothing to do with “all things Jewish”. And one of the things they “claimed” was “specifically Jewish” was the 7th-Day Sabbath!

The Roman Empire at that time was ruled by Pagan-minded people who worshiped the Sun (and please notice I said the SUN, NOT “THE SON”).

However, due to the advent of the pro-Jesus-was/is-Messiah Jewish religion, Roman leaders & “Catholic bishops” feared the spread of the pro-Jesus-was/is-Messiah Jewish religion and loss of political control/power. Thus, at the Council of Nicea around 325A.D., Constantine (along with “Catholic bishops”) CHANGED THE SABBATH from the biblically-mandated Saturday to SUN-DAY (which was venerable worship day of the SUN), thus, creating an entirely NEW “Christian religion” that didn’t relay on “Jewish precepts”, such as the “biblically-mandated 7th day [Saturday] Sabbath” and that also had PAGAN ROOTS, to boot!

And Constantine wanted control of both the Pagans AND the “pro-Jesus-was/is-Messiah-Jews” (called Christians) and so what better way for him to do that than to create a “Sabbath Day” for both Christians AND Pagans? Think about it, folks! And that was only the beginning.

Around the year 365A.D. at the Council of Laoedicea or after, “resting” on the “Jewish” 7th day Sabbath [a biblical COMMAND/principle in the Old AND New Testament times – more about that later] was FORBIDDEN, as well as partaking IN the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts [outlined in Leviticus 23 in the Old Testament AND partaken of by Jesus Christ AND his disciples, etc. in the New Testament]. Not to mention they were also REQUIRED TO WORK ***ON*** the 7th Day biblically-mandated Sabbath and to REST on Sun-Day (which the bible CONDEMNS!)

All of this can be found and is well-documented in the Constantine Creed: http://tjcoop3.wordpress.com/the-constantine-creed/

But it wasn’t just “Emperor Constantine” who brought this LARGE/SATANIC SCHISM about. The Catholic Church, in and of itself, had a HUGE ROLE in all of this! Just examine the following quotes:

Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108: “But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify“

The Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

Chancellor Albert Smith for Cardinal of Baltimore Archdiocese, letter dated February 10, 1920: “If Protestants would follow the Bible, they should worship God on the Sabbath day by God, which is Saturday. In keeping the Sunday, they are following a law of the Catholic Church“

Stephen Keenan, Catholic—Doctrinal Catechism 3rd Edition: 174:

Question: Have you any other way of proving the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

Answer: “Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her, she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the 1st day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the 7th day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority“.

Our Sunday Visitor (February 5, 1950): “Practically everything Protestants regard as essential or important they have received from the Catholic Church… The Protestant mind does not seem to realize that in accepting the Bible and observing the Sunday, in keeping Christmas and Easter, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope”

Louis Gaston Segur, Plain Talk about the Protestantism of To-Day (London: Thomas Richardson and Son, 1874): 213: “Thus the observance of Sunday by the Protestants is a homage they pay, in spite of themselves, to the authority of the (Catholic) Church”.

The Catholic Mirror (September 23, 1893):”The Catholic Church, for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday…The Adventists are the only body of Christians with the Bible as their teacher, who can find no warrant in its pages for the change of day from the seventh to the first. Hence their appellation, “Seventh-day Adventists.”

Catholic Record (September 1, 1923): “The [Catholic] Church is above the Bible, and this transference of the Sabbath observance is proof of that fact”

Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae (The Reunion of Christendom), June 20, 1894: 
”We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty“

“Pope,” Ferraris’ Ecclesiastic Dictionary: “The Pope is of so great dignity and so exalted that he is not a mere man, but as it were God, and the vicar of God”

***Plus, many, many more “quotes” from the Catholic Church regarding the “Sabbath Change”……..

And one only has to read the Constantine Creed to know WHY the Catholic Church incorporated “Pagan practices AND Holidays” INTO the “Christian religion”. Many falsely think that Constantine “helped spread Christianity throughout the Roman Empire” but the sadistic truth is that Constantine DID help spread “Christian religion” alright…….a FALSE PROFANE “Pagan form” of it, that is! Don’t believe me? Look at history!

In fact, Constantine HATED THE JEWS and God’s true people! Probably about as much as Hitler did, quite honestly. So why do the major media networks and “religious scholars” never cover THAT part about Constantine? Answer: They’re just as much “Pagan/Satanically-minded” today as Constantine and Hitler were in THEIR day!

Many Christian folks out there today want to point to Colossians 2:16-17 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ” as a means to DISREGARD the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts outlined in the bible.

However, in retrospect, the passage is saying that the 7 Annual Feasts of the Lord are both a foreshadowing of Jesus Christ, the Messiah AND fulfilled in Jesus Christ, the Messiah (if that makes any sense). And not only that, but the passage is also telling us not to let ANY non-believer, wayward believer, or believer of ANOTHER religion judge US (the Jewish-roots Christians who follow both Old AND New Testaments) in REGARDS to partaking IN the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts and High Sabbaths or regular, weekly 7th Day “Saturday Sabbaths”.

It is my strong personal belief that the Colossians 2:16 is NOT only talking about the “modern day scoffers” who write off the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts and 7th Day Sabbath as “Jewish days, ONLY” and that JUDGE those of us Jewish-roots Christians who DO still partake of them (or atleast try to partake of them to the very best of our ability), but I think it was also accurately foretelling Constantine’s Creed down below, as well:

“I renounce all customs, rites, legalisms, unleavened breads and sacrifices of lambs of the Hebrews, and all the other feasts of the Hebrews, sacrifices, prayers, aspirations, purifications, sanctifications, and propitiations, and fasts and new moons, and Sabbaths, and superstitions, and hymns and chants, and observances and synagogues. absolutely everything Jewish, every Law, rite and custom and if afterwards I shall wish to deny and return to Jewish superstition, or shall be found eating with Jews, or feasting with them, or secretly conversing and condemning the Christian religion instead of openly confuting them and condemning their vain faith, then let the trembling of Cain and the leprosy of Gehazi cleave to me, as well as the legal punishments to which I acknowledge myself liable. And may I be an anathema in the world to come, and may my soul be set down with Satan and the devils.”

(Stefano Assemani, Acta Sanctorium Martyrum Orientalium at Occidentalium, Vol. 1, Rome 1748, page 105)
 
As for the rest of the “Pagan holidays” instituted by Constantine and/or the Catholic Church? St. Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas/St. Nicolas/Yule/Mithras Day, Halloween/Dead Saints Day, and Easter (Ishtar Day)? Each holiday (with the exception of Easter and New Year’s) has a “patron saint” attached to it. And “Catholic saints” (as we now know) are actually DEMONS! Not to mention that nearly ALL “Christian-Pagan holidays” (Christmas, Easter, etc.) are based off of ancient Pagan “sexual fests” (Saturnalia, Imbolc, etc.) Don’t believe me? DO THE RESEARCH, PEOPLE!!!!! 
 
Tell me, what do Easter bunnies, painted eggs and chocolate have to do with Jesus Christ? Can you find anything? Even just ONE thing? Answer: You can’t. And also: just WHAT do christmas trees, ornaments, snowmen, christmas decorations and SANTA CLAUS have to do with Jesus Christ? Again: nothing. So you should REALLY sit back and ask yourself that IF these “so-called holidays” are “Christian”, why do they have such PAGAN SYMBOLS associated with them? Think about that for awhile……It’s very, very sad and absolutely HEARTBREAKING to me that “Santa Claus” has become a “type of god” to people (no joke!)
 
He’s a MYTHICAL FIGURE based on Yule/Mithras, a FALSE GOD. And yet, many “songs” and “hymns” are sung to him each year, as if HE is the “all-knowing”, “all-powerful”, “omnipotent/omnipresent” God that GOD THE HEAVENLY FATHER IS! GOD is the one who sees, hears, and knows all things, NOT SOME MYTHICAL PROFANE SANTA CLAUS FIGURE!
 
Read your bible. You won’t find Santa Claus or Halloween or Easter bunnies in there. But what you WILL find is the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts outlined in Leviticus 23 in the Old Testament (King James Version)……feasts that Jesus Christ himself and his disciples celebrated and decreed that all the Lord’s people (Jew and Gentile alike) celebrate!

The truth is, today’s “modern day Christian Church” (whom no doubt forces congregations to meet on Sun-Day, the FALSE CATHOLIC SABBATH), has been lying to you for YEARS, people!!!!! YEARS!!!!!!!!!!! So get OUT of the “institutionalized”/”commercialized” Christian churches while you still can & start studying the bible (King James Version) AT HOME, with no false “priest” or “false Christian church model” to HINDER YOU! This way, you can have a PERSONAL relationship with Jesus Christ and not a FALSE/FORCED/COMMERCIALIZED ONE taught in all the “churches” today! NO WONDER today’s “Church” is going to pot! And NO WONDER this here American country is going to pot as well! ;( [Literally AND figuratively!!!!]
