The Cult of Sol Invictus
 by D.J. Love, Minister, TSN, SBC(Upgraded 3-4-2002) 
The Roman Empire began their official recognition of sun worship during the timeof Aurelian when he instituted the cult of "
Sol Invictus
". There is virtually nodifference between the cult of Sol Invictus and that of Mithraism or for that matter catholicism.In the year 307 A.D. Emperor Diocletian, a
Sun Worshipper
, was involved in thededication of a temple to Mithra, and was responsible for the burning of HolyScripture
(which made it possible for later emperors to formulate
Christianity
, and thusbegan the Roman version of the"UniversalChristo-pagan Mystery Religion.")
After the rein of Diocletian, the Roman Emperor Constantine, who was an early Christo- pagan
(Christian)
 
maintained the title "Pontifus Maximus" the high priest of  paganism, and remained a worshipper of Apollo. His coins were inscribed:
"
"
, which is interpreted as "Committed to the Invincible Sun".During his reign pagan
Sun
worship was
blended
with the worship of the TrueCreator 
(syncretism)
, and officially titled "
Christianity
" by the
(less than holy)
Roman Empire and its' official church the
(less than holy)
catholic
(universal)
church.
Cybele
,
the Phrygian goddess, known to her followers as "
the mother of god
",was closely related to the worship of Mithra. Just as Mithraism was a man'sreligion, the worship of Cybele was practiced by women.
The priests of Mithrawere known as "Fathers"
and
the Priestesses of Cybele as "Mothers"
. After  baptism into the Mysteries of Mithra, the initiate was marked on the forehead.
Thesign of the cross formed by the elliptic and the celestial equator was one of thesigns of Mithra
.
Sun
day
(Deis Solis)
, the day of the
Sun
, was considered byMithraist a sacred day of rest.
December 25th
 
(the birthday of Mithra)
wascelebrated as the birth of the
Sun
, given birth by the "
Queen of Heaven
" -"
Mother
of god." The Mithraists celebrated a mithraic love feast. This feastconsisted of loaves of bread decorated with crosses with wine, over which the priest pronounced a mystic formula. Mithra was considered mediator between godand man
(does this sound like Jesus?)
.
Note:
In 46 BC, when the Roman "Julian Calendar" was adopted, December 24th was the shortest day of the year. Therefore, December 25th was the firstannual day that daylight began to increase. Thus, the origin of the REBIRTH or Annual Birthday of the Invincible SUN.In accordance with the Roman "Julian calendar," the "Saturnalia" festival appears
 
to have taken place on or about December 17th; it was preceded by the "Consualia"near December 15th, and followed by the "Opalia" on December 19th. These pagan celebrations typically lasted for at least a week, ending just before the lateRoman Imperial Festival for "Sol Invictus"
(Invincible Sun)
on December 25th.In 1582 AD. Roman Catholic Pope Gregory the XIII caused the current "GregorianCalendar" to be adopted, in order to eliminate the solar time shift error introduced by the "Julian Calendar 
.
"By December 1582 AD the shortest day of the year had shifted 12 days on theRoman "Julian Calendar" to Wednesday, December 12, 1582
.
However, the Original December 25th 'Birth Date' was retained for all pagan Sungods by the Roman "Saturnalia" and "Sol Invictus" traditions
;
which were nowcalled the "Twelve Days Christ Mass
.
"On the new Roman Catholic Gregorian calendar the shortest annual day wasnumerically shifted back 10 days to the 22nd of December, where it remains to thisday; while the original order of the days of the week remained unchanged
.
Therefore
,
Wednesday
,
December 12th
,
1582 AD, became Wednesday, December 22nd, 1582 AD, and the True Sabbath Day remained unchanged.Yahweh
,
the Only True Yahweh, would never have allowed The True Messiah to be born on or near the December 25th birthday period of the pagan Sun gods
;
duringthe time in which virgins were sacrificed, murder was commonplace
,
and orgiesthe norm
.
This would be an entirely unacceptable association.
Mithraists, also, believed in eternal life in heaven,
and in the
torture of thewicked after death
. Many of these beliefs and rituals were exclusive to Mithraismand up until the fourth century were not an official part of the Christo-pagan faith.In the 4th century, through confusion and deliberate manipulation by the RomanEmpire and its' official universal
(catholic)
church, rituals of "
Sun Worship
" werelegitimized, under the guise of the "Authority of the Church"
(Yahweh NeverGranted Any Such Authority)
to be "
Christian
" in nature
.
There is no Biblicalsupport for the inclusion of Mithraic rituals
(pagan Worship)
into the worship of theYahweh of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Creator of heaven and earth, and theOnly Duty of the True Church is one of Obedience To The Authority of Yahweh
.
Itis a Satanic scheme of deception to disguise the transgression of Yahweh's lawsunder the title of "
Christianity
"
(Christo-pagan syncretism)
. This same system,characterized by the shrouding of truth in secrecy and the manipulation of the truthin order to achieve its ends, has been working for two millennia to perfect theChristo-pagan religion of Christianity
.
The mystery of iniquity is at work and itonly takes a little leaven to leaven the whole lump. The next step is the actualforced taking of the "
Mark of the Beast
," however, millions have already takenthe "
" voluntarily
