Constantine’s Christian Creed
”I renounce all customs, rites, legalisms, unleavened breads and sacrifices of lambs of theHebrews, andall the other feasts of the Hebrews, sacrifices, prayers, aspirations, purifications,sanctifications, and propitiations, and fasts and new moons, and Sabbaths, and superstitions, and hymns andchants, andobservances and synagogues. absolutely everything Jewish, every Law, rite and customand if afterwards I shall wish to deny and return to Jewish superstition, or shall be found eatingwith Jews, or feasting with them, or secretly conversing and condemning the Christian religion insteadof openlyconfuting them and condemning their vain faith, then let the trembling of Cain and theleprosy of Gehazicleave to me, as well as the legal punishments to which I acknowledge myself liable. Andmay I be ananathema in the world to come, and may my soul be set down with Satan and the devils.”(StcfanoAssemani, Acta Sanctorium Martyrum Orientalium at Occidentalium, Vol. 1, Rome1748, page 105)
The writer of this creed seems to make the Sabbath, the feast of the Lord, newmoons and clean animals for food as Jewish in origin. This is not consistent withwhat the scriptures say.The Sabbath was blessed and sanctified by GOD, Genesis 2:3
And Godblessed the seventh day
and sanctified it
:The feast of the Lord are not called the feast of Jews, they are called the feast of the Lord,
the feasts of the LORD
,The new moon is an instrument used to determine the lunar month. It wascreated for that purpose or at least one of its purposes.
, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the dayfrom the night; and let them be for
signs, and for seasons, and for days, andyears
:Meat intended as food for humans is listed in Leviticus 11, classified as cleanfood. Meat
intended as food for humans is classified as unclean food. Thisis the word from the Lord, not the Jews.
And the LORD spake
unto Moses and to Aaron, saying untothem,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These
the beasts which ye shalleat among all the beasts that
on the earth.
