Where Sherry Shriner Went Wrong: The Deception of the Ages 3

This is another in a quarilogy of articles dealing with an article by false prophet Sherry Shriner, Hopefully this one will address more of her objections.

"I have been stating for the past 2 years that Paul was a government agent infiltrating Christianity because I kept feeling led into that area. I just couldn't prove it. I couldn't find the missing link until I stumbled on Mithraism. I had seen it before but had ignored it all together as a clever imitation by Satan to confuse men. Until I recently took a closer look at it and realized it was more than attempt to confuse men, it had completely overpowered and replaced Christianity. And that was the link I had been looking for and kept overlooking.

     Mithraism operated back in the early church days the way the Masons do today. It was an elite cult for the men of high social circles and a god of the military forces. At the time of Christ it had permeated the Roman government. Mithra was the god of light, just as the god of Masonry is today. Saul-Paul's father was a Roman government official. There's no doubt he was involved in the sect of Mithraism, and having Jewish/Edomite blood, Saul-Paul had established himself in the sect of the Pharisees of the Jews. He had dual citizenship among the Romans and the Jews."

Ok, I have said this before, I'll say it again, Can Shriner give sources for anything she is claiming within these articles? No. There is no evidence that Paul had both Jewish and Edomite blood in his veins. So what if he was part of the Pharisees? Is a Pharisee barred from coming to Yeshua through repentance and faith? Of course not, He was a Pharisee yes, but in spite of his efforts to be the best, they fell short of God's holy standard. Paul did have dual citizenship, there is no question about that? But what does this prove? There are "nice" theories about Paul being involved in Mithraism, but the onus of proof is on her and others who make this claim to either back it up from the holy scriptures, or from reliable documentation outside of the scriptures. So far, Shriner's assertions about Paul are as empty as an action movie with a lucklustre plot.

"Paul was the instrument to merge Mithraism with Christianity and overthrow the original church the apostles had built. Now before you scream heresy, let me assure you if you read this through you will realize the deception of the churches today. If you're celebrating Christmas and Easter and celebrating the Sabbath on Sunday then you need to read this. No, I'm not a Seventh Day Adventist or any religion, I hold to none. I seek only the Father and the truth in the Most High God.

      When we study the future Blue Beam Project that is going to be used to bring the Antichrist to power, you can't overlook the striking similarities of Mithraism. Is Maitreya (another name for the coming Antichrist) going to be the modern day Mithra? Seems like it.

       Remember, as I just stated above one of the earliest Persian symbols for Mithra was a flying disc (UFO) and an all-seeing eye (symbol of the NWO)."

Sunday worship I already established from materials such as the Epistle of Barnabas and the Didache was not something carried over from Mithraism. Again, It did not come from the pagans. Like I said before, The Lords Day to celebrate the resurrection was on a Sunday, because that was the day he rose. Also I quite frankly couldn't really care about the Illuminati conspiracy theory or the Blue Beam. Though Anti-Christ will establish a new world order in the future, it hasn't happened yet but still worth being cautious. If Paul had the power to overthrow the church with Mithraism, then Jesus was unable to protect his church. Considering both Shriner and I both acknowledge Jesus as fully God, she is effectively saying YHWH couldn't protect the church, What utter blasphemy.

"In retrospect, it would have been a very easy switch from Mithraism to Constantine’s form of  'so called’ Christianity, as their doctrines and tenants were very similar. Only the name of the god Mithra had to be changed to Christ, and the day of worship to be changed from Saturday to Sunday. There was also a little rearranging in other things, but all in all the amalgamation was relatively easy because most of the doctrines and teachings of Mithra were transferred and assimilated into the church. Not to make it easier for the pagans to accept Christianity, but to infiltrate and pollute Christianity with a false messiah. "


"In his edict of Milan, issued in 313AD., a year after his supposed conversion, toleration and equality were proclaimed to other cults and religions within the state, however anyone who persisted in observing any other day than their venerable day of the sun’, the state promoted day, were actively persecuted, therefore any Sabbath keeper had to go underground.

      The seven Mithraic sacraments were adopted (retained in Catholicism to this day) and Christmas and Easter, Mithraic holidays were also brought in."

Here is what the Edict of Milan ACTUALLY says:

"When I, Constantine Augustus, as well as I, Licinius Augustus, fortunately met near Mediolanurn (Milan), and were considering everything that pertained to the public welfare and security, we thought, among other things which we saw would be for the good of many, those regulations pertaining to the reverence of the Divinity ought certainly to be made first, so that we might grant to the Christians and others full authority to observe that religion which each preferred; whence any Divinity whatsoever in the seat of the heavens may be propitious and kindly disposed to us and all who are placed under our rule. And thus by this wholesome counsel and most upright provision we thought to arrange that no one whatsoever should be denied the opportunity to give his heart to the observance of the Christian religion, of that religion which he should think best for himself, so that the Supreme Deity, to whose worship we freely yield our hearts) may show in all things His usual favor and benevolence. Therefore, your Worship should know that it has pleased us to remove all conditions whatsoever, which were in the rescripts formerly given to you officially, concerning the Christians and now any one of these who wishes to observe Christian religion may do so freely and openly, without molestation. We thought it fit to commend these things most fully to your care that you may know that we have given to those Christians free and unrestricted opportunity of religious worship. When you see that this has been granted to them by us, your Worship will know that we have also conceded to other religions the right of open and free observance of their worship for the sake of the peace of our times, that each one may have the free opportunity to worship as he pleases; this regulation is made we that we may not seem to detract from any dignity or any religion.

Moreover, in the case of the Christians especially we esteemed it best to order that if it happens anyone heretofore has bought from our treasury from anyone whatsoever, those places where they were previously accustomed to assemble, concerning which a certain decree had been made and a letter sent to you officially, the same shall be restored to the Christians without payment or any claim of recompense and without any kind of fraud or deception, Those, moreover, who have obtained the same by gift, are likewise to return them at once to the Christians. Besides, both those who have purchased and those who have secured them by gift, are to appeal to the vicar if they seek any recompense from our bounty, that they may be cared for through our clemency. All this property ought to be delivered at once to the community of the Christians through your intercession, and without delay. And since these Christians are known to have possessed not only those places in which they were accustomed to assemble, but also other property, namely the churches, belonging to them as a corporation and not as individuals, all these things which we have included under the above law, you will order to be restored, without any hesitation or controversy at all, to these Christians, that is to say to the corporations and their conventicles: providing, of course, that the above arrangements be followed so that those who return the same without payment, as we have said, may hope for an indemnity from our bounty. In all these circumstances you ought to tender your most efficacious intervention to the community of the Christians, that our command may be carried into effect as quickly as possible, whereby, moreover, through our clemency, public order may be secured. Let this be done so that, as we have said above, Divine favor towards us, which, under the most important circumstances we have already experienced, may, for all time, preserve and prosper our successes together with the good of the state. Moreover, in order that the statement of this decree of our good will may come to the notice of all, this rescript, published by your decree, shall be announced everywhere and brought to the knowledge of all, so that the decree of this, our benevolence, cannot be concealed."

Where in this passage does it say what Shriner said? Nowhere. Ask yourself honestly, Can you find in the Edict of Milan where it says what she says? I'll leave you to investigate.

"The female companion cult to this male’s only religion was a dedication to the fertility goddess, Ishtar, the Queen of heaven, or Magnus Mater. The moon was her planet as in Moon day, our Monday, as the next largest orb in our heavens. At the first full moon of spring in the northern hemisphere, that is at the end of our March, in Babylonian times the pagan son of the sun-god, Demuzi, or Tammuz, the forerunner of Mithra, descended into the nether world, to be rescued by his mother/lover, Ishtar, the fertility goddess, and on being rescued participated in an act of human procreation. Rabbits and eggs were symbols of this fertility rite. Little round cakes, the equivalent of our hot cross buns, were also baked in honour to this Ishtar, the Queen of Heaven. The evidence of this is found in Jeremiah’s time
Jer.7:18 The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. See also Jer.44: 17-19.

     These practices were merged into the church to where today we have a combination of both the pagan Mithraism and Queen of heaven worship via the Protestant Easter and the Catholicism celebration of Mary."

I don't see Easter or Christmas in scripture so I won't make comments. They are not in the Bible so I need not observe them. It would be nice if she actually gave a source for what she is saying because I am getting sick of having to constantly look up her claims. Not sure how Tammuz is remotely connected to Mithra.

Feel free to check to take a look at this article here: http://christiananswers.net/q-eden/edn-t020.html

"In the northern hemisphere the winter solstice falls on December 22/23, thus making this time the sun’s most weakest point of the year, so it was then reckoned to be the time of its yearly death. But then after this point the sun then became stronger, so the ancients considered that it was the time of rebirth and hence declared a few days after as being the birthday of the sun (son), that is, Mithra’s birthday! The day chosen being December 25, the most important date on the Babylonian calendar year. If you are celebrating Christmas, it is not the Lord Jesus's birthday you are celebrating but Mithra's. And the argument "the Lord knows my heart" won't work either because Yahweh hates the traditions of men! You are worshipping another god, and another gospel. Why? Because you're following after the traditions of man and ignoring Yahweh's Required Feasts altogether."

The required feasts in the Old Testament I have already covered:

"Mithra’s cave-temple on the Vatican Hill was seized by Christians in 376 A.D.. Christian bishops of Rome pre-empted even the Mithraic high priest’s title of Pater Patrum, which became Papa,(or Pope)   First there was Mithra copying the coming Messiah. Now, we have Christianity taking over Mithra, copying and assimilating the pagan aspects of Mithraism. Both would become assimilated into each other creating a false and delusional mystery cult religion. And not only that, what today is located on Vatican Hill? The Vatican. There are 7 hills in Rome, and the Vatican was built on top of a Mithra temple, just as other churches had been built on top of ancient Mithra temples.

     And we still have it in today's secret occult societies. The sun became the mysterious ‘all seeing eye of Mithras’, and astrology prediction became an important part of the cult. We see this even today with Illuminati symbols of the all-seeing eye and their dependency of astrology. What the church dropped, the occult kept. We have Mithra in both our church and government. The all-seeing eye is a symbol on our dollar bill.

       Many of the Roman Emperors who embraced this mystery cult god included; Nero, Commodus, Septimus, Aurelain, Julian the Apostate, and Dioclethian, to name only a few who were all faithful followers of Mithra. For it was he who promised to be the ‘Protector of the Faithful’, which would be very important to a soldier, and also as a ‘guide to the souls’ of men. Thus these Emperors added divine names to their own, such a ‘Dias’ or devout, ‘Felix’ or blessed, ‘Invictus’ or invincible, to make legitimate their claims of ruling by divine right.  A practice the Roman Catholic papacy would adopt.

      Naturally the true and faithful to Yahushua could not possibly bow to this form of sun-worship, so they were persecuted. Do you understand that? The Early Christians would not bow to the sun-god yet today's Christians are bowing every Sunday to it!  "

Again, I have covered the issue of Sunday Worship here:
Just because Christians worship on a Sunday, that doesn't mean they are paying homage to a pagan god whatsoever. Sunday Worship is not the issue, it's who you worship. Christians don't worship the Sun god on Sunday, because it is not there. Which churches aside from the Vatican built a temple on a Mithraic shrine?

Stay tuned for a final article response to this article by Shriner.

Answering Judaism.

Addendum: Sherri does provide sources at the end of the article for some claims, not all. Not that this would vindicate her or justify her attacks on Paul.
