Anyone with eyes to see, and who is not blinded by 'religion', certainly must recognize Papal Rome as the disguised off-spring of SUN Worshiping Rome, or Lucifer Sun Worship 'baptized' with the name Christianity. In light of Scriptural teaching, sincere men like John Wycliffe, Savonarola, Martin Luther and thousands of others, were willing to give their lives for God's truth, and most did. The Church of Rome makes pure mockery of everything that is sacred, pure, and the truth. Claiming to be Christian, it has in clinging tenaciously to its possession of the title 'Pontifex Maximus' who sits at the Vatican, and its preoccupation with the revival of Roman ascendancy on earth as the Kingdom of Heaven, has become just a continuation of Roman SUN Worship, with even greater atrocities, using the faith and needs of simple men to forward its schemes. Let's review just a few of the core items carried over from SUN Worship to the Church of Rome, that Protestants fearlessly gave their lives to oppose.
'Syncretism' is a word meaning, the mingling into one religious system, elements that have been drawn from different other religious systems. As a smokescreen, this is exactly what the Church of Rome has done in calling herself Christian. Most will ask, is it really that important? The reader must be reminded, that God calls this 'mixing' of false religion with His truth as something He hates, an abomination. (Deuteronomy12:28-32 & 18:9-12) It is startling to learn of God's stern denunciation and warnings against this 'mixing', but even more amazing, is the attitude of those who claim to be teachers of God's Word, who shrug these poisons off as perfectly harmless.
(Deu 12:28) Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God.
(Deu 12:29) When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;
(Deu 12:30) Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.
(Deu 12:31) Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.
(Deu 12:32) What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
(Deu 18:9) When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
(Deu 18:10) There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
(Deu 18:11) Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
(Deu 18:12) For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
