The Apostles Creed is recited across many of the “Christian” religions. This creed is a “statement of faith” often used as part of baptismal ceremonies. In the previous article on this subject, we showed that the apostles themselves would not even know the Apostles Creed. It was fabricated three hundred years after Jesus and the Apostles under the influence of Babylonian, Greek, and Roman worship practices. These practices are contrary to God’s Word.
Let’s look more closely at this creed and at what Jesus and the Apostles themselves had to say. To begin, what exactly is the creed?
The idea of Rapture is NOT in the Bible! “According to some millenarian teaching, it is the “transport” of a “believer” from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.” They actually purport that “the chosen” will be lifted up bodily into the sky, leaving nothing but a pile of clothes behind.
Many characters in Roman mythology, including the Roman progenitor, Aeneas, have been lifted up bodily into heaven. He is recognized by them as the god, Jupiter, from whom they got the Black Madonna. Millenarianism itself is actually based in Zoroastrianism which is an ancient pagan, Persian religion.
Worship of a Black Madonna, Mother-Goddess goes back to ancient times and has been fused into the majority of cultures globally. The origins of this are highly contested among scholars. This article will finally solve the Mystery of the Black Madonna: where and who it came from. But whether it’s white or black, it’s the same image. Syncretism is the practice of combining or fusing different forms of belief or worship into one, i.e. Greco-Roman.
The feast day of the so-called “Black Madonna of Czestochowa” (Poland) is celebrated on Sunday, August 26th. Roman Pontiffs have recognized and venerated this icon for centuries.
Jesus is not God. Jesus, more accurately known as Y’hoshua, is a son or child of God, one of many. Most “Christian” religions teach that Jesus and God are one and the same. Jesus himself said otherwise. Where?
“…Why call you me good? there is none good but one, that is, God…” Matthew 19:17
Oh what a time of pure chaos and confusion! This day for instance, Ash Wednesday, a day of “penance and prayer” for “Christians” to remember their mortality because after all: “from dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return” Coincidentally, it happens to land on Valentine’s Day, a day of indulgent love and sexual rituals with all the candy, surf and turf, cakes and goodies and wine you can eat and drink. What a contradiction! What are you gonna do? The Lenten period is supposed to be a time of penance, abstinence and fasting. The truth of the matter is that it’s all worthless paganism! Just leave it alone.
Have you ever wondered what Valentine’s day is all about? Who is Valentine? Why is this considered a “holy” day? Why do people feel the need to purchase billions of dollars’ worth of gifts annually to show their love for one another? Who is Cupid? What is the significance of the arrow? Why do we associate a naked little boy with “love”?
Origin of Valentine’s day
The practice of Valentine’s day originated in Rome with the feast of Lupercalia. This was the fertility celebration named for Lupa, the she-wolf who suckled the founders of Rome. In this fertility worship practice, inebriated males sacrifice a goat to Venus, wear it’s skin and go through town whipping women with a short strip of leather dipped in blood to promote fertility.
The Christmas Tree, advent calendar, Christmas stocking, the mistletoe and candle light services are all traditions followed as a way of celebrating the Christmas Holiday. God’s Word warns that traditions make void the Word of God, therefore, you should stop and ask yourself, “Is God referring to any of my traditions?” How exactly do traditions make the Word of God “void”?
Santa Claus seems to be a kind old man bearing gifts. But parents completely ignore the fact that the origins of this character are paganism, materialism, consumerism and pedophilia. They willingly hand their children over to it.
There is rampant pedophilia within the Roman Catholic clergy and has been for quite some time. It should be easy to make the connection between the massive child abuse and this custom of giving the children over to such a ‘god-man’ who “knows if they’ve been bad or good”?
The image of “Santa Claus” is merely a marketing ploy to make the merchants of the earth rich. The children are taught to “pray” to him as a “false god” for all their wants and wishes and to believe that if they’re “good” their wishes will be fulfilled. It is idolatry and evil in the eyes of God and it only serves to provoke Him to anger!
“Gather My Holy Ones/Elect together to Me; those that will make a Covenant with Me by an offering. And the heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God Himself is Judge. Hear, O My people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify before you: I am God, even your God. Offer to God thanksgiving; and pay your vows to the most High: And call upon Me in the Day of Tribulation: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” Psalm 50
As of 2005 54% (3.6 billion people) of the world’s population considered themselves adherents of an “Abrahamic religion.” Christianity being the largest at 33%, Islam second at 21% and Judaism at 0.02%. All “Abrahamic religions” claim a direct lineage to the Biblical Patriarch, Abraham.
Jesus said, If you are the children of Abraham, you would do the works of Abraham. So let’s see how well connected these “religions” really are to Abraham!
