"It has served us well, this myth of Christ."
Pope Leo X
It does seem that most modern religions are based on sun worship and astrology but they try to hide this fact. Here is an example.. Christianity in sun worship components.
The Son of God
We know the ancient peoples worshipped the sun, and no one on Earth could ever own the Sun. Such a heavenly body must belong to the unseen Creator of the universe. It became known as, not man's, but "God's Sun."
Obviously "God's Sun" was . . ."The Light Of The World." it was common in ancient Egypt to say that "God’s Sun was the 'Light of the World,' who gave His life for us".
Each night, mankind was forced to wait for the "Rising of The Sun" or "The resurrection of the Sun" to chase away the physical and mental insecurity brought on by the darkness.
The morning Sun focused man's attention on his heavenly dependence on Earth. It was the obvious symbol of divine benevolence from heaven. The Sun God, called 'Horus' in ancient Egypt moved across the sky in a chariot, its where we get Hours or Houruses from as the gradations of his movement and also where Set the god of night would win over him at Sun 'Set'.
Just as a small fire brought limited light into man's own little world of darkness, the "Great Fire of Day" served the whole Earth with its heavenly presence. It was said at Deut. 4:24 and Heb. 12:29 that the God of the Bible was a "Consuming Fire" in heaven.
Man was bound to a life on Earth, but the sky was the abode of God's Sun. He resides "up there" in. . . "Heaven."
Man saw in his male offspring his own image and likeness, and his own existence as a father was proved by the person of his son. "God's Sun" was a visible representative of the unseen Creator in heaven. It was said, "When you have seen the Son, you have seen the Father." Or "The Father is glorified in His Son."
In ancient Egypt, the Sun was pictured with wings. In Mal 4:2, the God of Heaven is described as the "Sun of Righteousness with healing in His wings." Then in the New Testament in Matt. 23:37 and Luke 13:34, we see God's Son wanting to gather all under "His wings."
Since harm lurked in the dark of night, evil or harmful deeds were naturally the "Works of Darkness." And of course the evil of night was ruled over by none other than . . . "The Prince of Darkness." Evil is of the Dark, the “Dark-Evil" or the "D Evil"
Man kept track of times and seasons by the movement of the Sun - daily, monthly, yearly. For this, the sundial was used. Not only the daily movement of the Sun was tracked on the round dial, but the whole year was charted on a round calendar dial.
Since the Earth has four different seasons, all the same and equal (in time) each year, the round calendar was divided into four equal parts. This represented the complete story of the life of "God's Sun."
To represent the seasons on the circular yearly calendar, you put a vertical line down the middle, cutting the circle in half - one end being the point of the winter solstice; the other end the summer solstice. Then another horizontal line (crossing the first one) adds the spring equinox and the autumn equinox.
This is called "The Cross of the Zodiac."
The movements of the suns life are on the cross, so
The life of God's "Sun" is on "the Cross."
This is why you so often see the round circle of the Sun on the crosses of Christian churches. They are showing you zodiacal crosses, infact they are showing you sun calendars.
Death and Resurection
On December 22, the Sun, going south, reaches its lowest point in the sky (our winter solstice). It was often described, since the days have the longest darkness of the year, as the sun's descent into Hell where he was subjected to the darkness, or the dark-evil, the D-evil.
From the 22nd the sun stops moving for the next three days. (the sunrise is at exactly the same place as depicted on a the zodiacal cross) The sun has died on the cross.
On December 25th, the sun starts its motion northward. On December 25th the sun is “Born Again.”
December 25th was the ancient Roman celebration of Sol Invictus-the Sun Unconquered. So Roman Christianity celebrates the birthday of the Sun on this date.. The full return of the sun happens at the vernal equinox when days become longer than nights. This is Easter. Christians still celebrate Easter at a sun rise service.
Its sun worship !
Well some moon too. Queen Semiramis of Babylon came down from the moon in a giant moon egg that fell into the Euphrates River at the time of the first full moon after the spring equinox. She was later called Ishtar and its why we eat eggs on Easter to celebrate her reign. Her son was nimrod who she married and was later called Baal the god of the Sun. The worship of this light is what Lucifer or Lucius the god of light is all about. Its funny how Christianity is actually a Luciferian cult.
