So here we go again.
Honestly though, is seems like nothing has changed, which is a pity.
I came across this picture on facebook that addresses things which I have had to deal with in the past.. so here…. lets start with what it says.
“Hebrew Roots is an occult?
Christianity has adopted Christmas/pagan idol worshiop of winter solstice yule god, ¬†pagan idol worship of Ishtar/Easter, 40 days of lent/40 days weaping for Tammuz, The Lord’s day/pagan day of Sol invictus the sun god.
I’m sorry…. who is in an occult? ”
Now, discounting the poor wording and grammar, we’ll take a look at the content.
First, I don’t know who ‘Hebrew Roots’ is, I would think they are an offshoot of the Messianic movement which is fine by me.. The problem here is that this person is spouting the same nonsense I found on the web years ago.
Christmas. ¬†Okay, since when is celebrating the birth of Jesus pagan?… ¬† ¬†and ‘winter solstice yule god’ ¬†really? ¬†Why do people think that celebrating the Saviour’s birth is worshiping that creature? ¬†Something to ponder there…. ¬† moving on now.
Pagan idol worship of Ishtar….. does not equal Easter at all, which is when I celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
’40 days of lent/ 40 days weaping for Tammuz’ ¬† so okay… I have no idea and am not even looking it up right now.. I admit to having lint in my dryer but that’s about it.
‘The Lord’s day/Pagan day of Sol Invictus the sun god.’ ¬†The first day of the week was designated as the Lord’s day… has nothing to do with Sol Invictus… sun god my eye…. in which tradition?
I think what disturbs me most is the exwitch that was seemingly in agreement with this mess… She should know better since with worship, it is a matter of intent more than anything else. ¬†I am sorry for them if some misinformed folks are equating them as being in the occult, but….. the followers of Jesus are not.
I am actually going to deal with something else as well… just for those who buy into the whole ‘pagan christianity’ nonsense. ¬† If you are going to say that because some pagan somewhere did things on a certain day or in a certain way, that christians are pagan….. you better stop cooking your food, and living in shelters because pagans did that… oh and birthdays…. oh yeah, before I forget; there is pretty much a pagan holiday on every calender day of the year somewhere,¬†in some tradition or other so you better stop using the calender and stop celebrating on those days…. or worshiping on them… or anything else…… ¬† ¬†feel free to go hide in a dark corner somewhere safe though.
