O Christmas Tree, Idolatree

Most people probably wouldn’t associate a Christmas Tree with idolatry. But God’s Word commands against this ancient custom of vanity and idolatry.

“The modern Christmas tree is frequently traced to the symbolism of trees in pre-Christian winter rites, wherein Viking and Saxon worshiped trees.”  BBC Religion and Ethics

Why God and Thanksgiving Don’t Mix

ThanksgivingThis November, Americans will celebrate the National Holiday and tradition of Thanksgiving.  Getting a couple of days off work to spend with family is, of course, wonderful.  But just because a tradition has wholesome intents and even includes a prayer to God, doesn’t mean that it is in line with God.  He may even hate it!

Francis Addresses Abuse Scandal – The Devil Did It!

“Pope” Francis is up to the church’s old tricks.  Deflect and distract.  Every day for the month of October, he has asked “the faithful” to pray the rosary and to pray to Michael the Archangel.  What are they praying for?  In response to the ever-expanding abuse scandal, Francis has asked them to pray “to repel the attacks of the Devil who wants to divide the Church.”  During a morning mass in September, Francis addressed exactly what these attacks against the church were.

“In these times, it seems like the Great Accuser has been unchained and is attacking bishops.  True, we are all sinners, we bishops.  He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people.  Let us pray, today, for our bishops: for me, for those who are here, and for all the bishops throughout the world.”  Francis

Apostles Refute the Apostles’ Creed

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?

Are Your “Biblical” Beliefs in the Bible?

Many have come in God’s authority and have deceived the majority. This has been prophesied in God’s Word, the Bible, to come upon the world from the very beginning to the end.

Just as Eve was deceived by the serpent, so it says in the last book of the Bible, that “Old Serpent” has deceived the whole world. (Gen 3:13; Rev 12:9)

Let’s begin by looking at just a few things that have been said by God’s Son and His servants, the Prophets in His Word.

“Many shall come in My Name”

Jesus/Y’hoshua was asked by his disciples, what would be the signs of the end of the age. He answered them and said:

Apostolic Succession

This article will answer the question of “Apostolic Succession,” what it is, who has claimed it for themselves, and who it rightfully belongs to.

Jesus warned to watch out for “false prophets/teachers who come to you as wolves in sheep’s clothing.” The Book of Revelation states that the “whole world” has been deceived by a certain religious entity who is the “Mother” of them all. Let’s take a closer look at this and see what it all means.

Can You Spy a False Prophet?

Jesus and the Apostles warned often of “false prophets.”  In the Book of Deuteronomy, Moses spoke of false prophets.  Who were they talking about?  Meanwhile, there are legitimate prophets like Moses, Jesus, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Elijah, the Apostles and many more.  What is a prophet and how can you tell a false prophet apart from the one you should actually listen to?  Let’s take a look.

The Mystery of the Black Madonna

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.

Ancient Roman Holidays – Two for One

There are two Roman holidays being celebrated on this day, but where did they come from and what do they mean? The Prophets of God have been warning Israel for a very long time how they provoke God to anger by participating in such “holy days.”  Let’s take a look and see why:

Ferr-agosto is a Roman holiday celebrated in Italy on the “ides of August.” It coincides with the major Roman Catholic Religion feast of the “Assumption of the Virgin.” After a 2-week fast, it’s a time for Italians to go to the beach before summer ends.

Ferragosta comes from the Latin, Feriah Augusti (the festivals of the Emperor, Caesar Augustus, 63 BC – 14 AD) which was introduced back in 18 BC.

Caesar Augustus - August is named for him
“And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.”     Luke 2:1

Augustus’ predecessor, Julius Caesar had been elected Pontifex Maximus in 63 BCE. Augustus inherited the role about the time of Christ. The Pontifex Maximus, or the Roman high priest, was assumed by the Roman Catholic Pontiff.

Jesus is Not God

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
