The first six chapters of the book deal directly with sun worship as it can be traced historically throughout the centuries. From Ancient times sun worship has been the apostate form of religion which Satan has chosen to oppose the true worship of the Creator. Through every known civilization sun worship influenced the thoughts and actions of mankind.

The Chaldeans worshipped the sun god. So did the Assyrians. The Babylonians - The Medo-Persians -The Grecians - and the Romans were sun worshippers. And even today, by way of the mystery of iniquity, the sun worship of previous centuries is disguised to the extent that it is now accepted by the majority as that of Biblical Christianity.

Scriptures warn us to beware of those preaching "another Jesus""...if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might 
well bear with him."

Sol Invictus / Mithra

What would be considered "another Jesus"? The Greek word used in this scripture verse is"allos" meaning different. So what we are considering is a different Jesus; not the Jesus of the Bible, not the only begotten Son of God, but another Jesus -- an impostor.

Today there are worldly wise, philosophers "vain in their imaginations" who using the example of Jesus teach men to disobey Gods commandments. They are preaching "Another Jesus". Many pagan practices that have absolutely no scriptural basis have been accepted, by many believers as the worship of Christ. These practices have not only been accepted but have become commonplace in the organized church. Those who refuse to participate in these practices are considered strange. These practices, introduced gradually by false teachers, have been accepted through tradition and have absolutely no scriptural basis. We have no excuse for ignorance. We have been fairly warned:

    "there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies."

We must search the scriptures to find out the truth. The truth that the ways of the LORD prescribed for His people have not changed, nor will they change. Activities unacceptable to the Lord 6000 years ago are still unacceptable today.

Christ said: "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men."

The prophesies of the Bible have come true: The time has come when sound doctrine is not endured. People receive teachers who tell them what they want to hear. Things that are wrong are justified, explained away: disregarding the warning, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"

Fables and the traditions of men are substituted for the truth: "After their own lusts they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they turn away their ears from the truth, and are turned unto fables."

"Christianized" pagan activities, traditional inventions of men, are not in honor of the Biblical Jesus.

What Jesus do they honor? "another Jesus".

Law and Grace

The Spirit of Grace ......Hebrews 10:29
The Righteousness of the Law ......Romans 2:26
Saved by Grace  -  Go and sin no more


While it is true that legal matters can become very confusing, it must be remembered that Gods laws are plain and simple. They can be written in one paragraph, memorized by the smallest child and as the Bible states, are not grievous.

In an age when many turn the grace of God into lasciviousness, there are those, professing themselves to be wise, who attempt to persuade that the laws of God are now void and of no value. Such persuasion can be described in no better way than what the Bible calls "vain deceit."

Jesus Christ, our Creator, the law giver, and our Savior said that until heaven and earth pass away, not even the slightest thing concerning the law will change. We are told that sin is the transgression of the law and that Christ died for the remission of sins. In fact, if any of the commandments could have been changed, sin could have been redefined, and He would not have had to die.

We are also given Biblical warning that through the sacrificial death of Christ - as payment for our sins - and through faith in his shed blood, we receive forgiveness only for sins that are past - and that if we sin willingly, once we have come to the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sin, certain judgment and ultimate destruction.

We are told however, that if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Only if we confess our sins.

Now if the servants of Satan can persuade us that God's laws are invalid, then sin, which is the transgression of those laws would never be confessed - and the wages of unconfessed sin is death.

Yes, Satan, our adversary as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. Be sober, be vigilant and remember "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law..."
