We were talking about "sun worship" in context of another thread, and how Mystery Babylon is centered around it, and definitely it is infused into Catholicism [with all the Cathedrals facing EAST] to worship the "sun". Remember Ezekiel 8 when those lost to paganism, worshipped Tammuz by facing East?
Ezekiel 8:15Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
16And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
17Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
I have warned for years about false sun worship and its incorporation into Mystery Babylon...and wrote this blog entry :"False Sun Worship #1: Solar Wheels and Mystery Babylon""
Now this guy asking questions about this, is an unbeliever, be careful if you read his website, it is some truth mixed with especially Jungian and New Age lies and an odd emphasis on "super-heroes" but he has accurately noticed, just how prevalent the sun logos are in evangelical churches....
"Watch Out People: Here Comes the Sun"
My post yesterday on the Solar imagery on my local megachurch's site prompted me to poke around seeing if other churches were following suit. I only spent a short time doing so, but even a hour or so poking around Google resulted in more than 100 church logos in which the Sun is featured prominently. I was astonished by how many conservative churches were using Solar imagery in place of traditional Christian imagery on their sites.
Even I found myself asking when I saw this over and over....Haven't any of these folks ever read Ezekiel 8? Here is a SUN too:
His first article points to the use of sun imagery in general corporate logos. His third article on the same subject, adds to the very wide collection of sun logos in churches and comes up with this point, it is always interesting to me how sometimes unbelievers who definitely lack the full truth, stumble upon a small snippet of truth...
"Ask yourself this- given the centralized, authoritarian structure of these churches, how hard would it be to gradually steer a hyper-politicized and overly-subordinate laity towards a very strange new interpretation of the faith? You wouldn't have to really change a jot or tittle, you simply would immerse your parishoners into a new symbol system and introduce a "bold new interpretation" of scripture. Or even use actual coercion to install this new "revelation." Already, we see believers acting more like militant Mithraists than Christians, and isn't how you behave more important than what you claim to believe?"
Definitely that has been an ongoing theme of my blog, noticing the power, "coercion", bad politics and control over the laity and definitely a "strange and new interpetation of the faith" He is right about that part, and the mention of "militant Mithraists" is interesting as well, which definitely shares attributes of Dominionism when you get right down to it. Article 4, has even more sun logos, and some quotes from popular false "early church fathers" who by no surprise to me, POINT to the SUN as well..
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
