Ashamed before Him at His coming



Historians recognize December 25 as a well known pagan birthday, honoring many of the ancient sun gods.

Those who attend our bible schools and seminaries are well aware of that fact; yet it is rare occasion when one of them will publicly admit it.

It’s easy to learn the origin of celebrations on December 25th. Encyclopedias plainly reveal the facts; and today, by way of the internet, with only a few minutes of research you will learn all you need to know. It was thought to be the birthday of pagan gods long before the time of Christ.

A good example is found in the fact that in Rome, a pagan temple for the sun god known as the Invincible sun, was dedicated on that day.

So why won’t Christian leaders tell us? They are ashamed of it. It cannot be defended; and they just don’t want to talk about it.

Do you think that perhaps there may be other things that we are not being told?

Men Who Hold The Truth In Unrighteousness



Many highly educated people have come to the conclusion that Christianity is nothing more than a new version of pagan mythology. There are many examples.

One reason they believe that, is the fact that December 25th is known to have been considered the birthday of pagan gods long before the time of Christ. Even so, now, it is widely accepted as the birthday of our Savior.

Those folks think that we are stupid – but there is a difference between deception and stupidity. Many of us have been deceived by our religious leaders and teachers. I know that I was; and, when I found out, I knew that it was my responsibility to warn others. That is the purpose of these commentaries.

The book of Romans has something to say about those who reject the Gospel of Christ. We are told that: Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. December 25th never had anything to do with the birth of our Savior, yet many pseudo intellectuals have believed the lies of the theologians to the extent that they have rejected Christ all together. What are we going to do about it?

Romans 1:18 speaks of those who withhold the truth in unrighteousness. We are told that the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against them.

In an information age that plainly reveals the pagan nature of December 25th. will we demand honesty or will we be complicit with those who purposefully withhold the truth?

December 25th, A Happy Birthday? – by Richard Rives

December 25th is well known as the birthday of various pagan gods.

A Roman calendar drawn up by a “Christian” in 354 A.D. (The Codex Calendar of 354) shows December 25 to be the birthday of Sol Invictus. Not only is it listed as a pagan birthday; but, it is listed as the most important pagan birthday of the whole year. It was celebrated in the Roman Circus with extra chariot races. This is the sun god that Constantine the Great worshipped while claiming to be a “Christian.” His coins state that he was “committed to Sol Invictus.” Constantines’ form of “Christianity” continues to influence Christianity today. December 25th is just Continue Reading

Christmas – Dec 25 – by Richard Rives

TO HEAR A 2 MIN. JUST THE FACTS AUDIO SEGMENT RELATING TO THIS SUBJECT:

The Encyclopaedia Britannica reports that “The traditional customs connected with Christmas have developed from several sources as a result of the coincidence of the celebration of the birth of Christ with the pagan agricultural and solar observations at midwinter. In the Roman world the Saturnalia (December 17) was a time of merrymaking and exchange of gifts. December 25 was also regarded as the birth date of the Iranian mystery god Mithra, the Sun of Righteousness.”

Colliers Encyclopedia agrees. Quote: “After the triumph of Constantine, the church at Rome assigned December 25 as the date for the celebration of the feast, possibly about A.D. 320 or 353. By the end of the fourth century the whole Christian world was celebrating Christmas on that day, with the exception of the Eastern churches, where it was celebrated on January 6. The choice of December 25 was probably influenced by the fact that on this day the Romans celebrated the Mithraic feast of the Sun-god (natalis solis invicti), and that the Saturnalia also came at this time.”

Both encyclopedias plainly reveal that the source of the celebration of December 25 is the birthday of Mithra, the pagan sun god.

Today Contemporary Christianity has not only allowed truth to fall, but it has thrown truth in the street as a gesture of religious tolerance and compromise. It has given the adversaries of scripture exactly what they need to substantiate their claims that what most present as Christianity is nothing more than redefined pagan mythology. Educated theologians know that; yet they continue to present a compromised gospel filled with pagan tradition that never had anything to do with Christ. There has never been a more important time in the history of mankind for those called out as servants of our Creator to confront the philosophy and vain deceit that would lead people away from our Savior.
