Sorry but amen has it's roots traced back to the Egyptian god Ra.
1 century Christians did not worship jesus,You are mistaken.
Matthew 28 :19'20 "Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit,20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded ​YOU. And, look! I am with ​YOU​ all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.”
8 "Again the Devil took him along to an unusually high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory,9 and he said to him:“All these things I will give you if you fall down and do an act of worship to me.”10 Then Jesus said to him:“Go away, Satan! For it is written,‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’”
the watchtower use to contain those symbols but they removed once they studied and realized that it was a part of false worship. they stopped celebrating the holidays and many other things.
The first century christians did not worship jesus,but jehovah.or yahweh.
the word amen in greek /hebrew translated in english means " so be it or " surely" . It does not orginate with an egyptian amen ra because amen ra is translated hidden.
This world is not ok, The majority in the world live in poverty.
The Goverments are terrible.
Im not JW but i know for a fact they are doing what the dirst century christians did.
In ancient rome if you did not participate in there festivals you were persecuted which is why they would throw them into the arenas.
after the 3rd it became contaminated with people who wanted people to follow them so many of them began twisting the scriptures and it became dark for a while.
this is prophesied in the bible
matth24:4 "4And in answer Jesus said to them:“Look out that nobody misleads ​YOU;5for many will come on the basis of my name, saying,‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many"
1 timothy 4;1 to 4
However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons,2 by the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, marked in their conscience as with a branding iron;3forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be partaken of with thanksgiving by those who have faith and accurately know the truth"
If you you read the bible it will show you how a christian is suppose to act.
"Woe to ​YOU, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ​YOU​ resemble whitewashed graves, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful but inside are full of dead men’s bones and of every sort of uncleanness.28In that way ​YOU​ also, outwardly indeed, appear righteous to men, but inside ​YOU​ are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
matt 23 "Woe to ​YOU, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ​YOU​ resemble whitewashed graves, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful but inside are full of dead men’s bones and of every sort of uncleanness.28In that way ​YOU​ also, outwardly indeed, appear righteous to men, but inside ​YOU​ are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness."
The romans persucted christians because many of the goverment leaders participated cult like rituals.
Roman religion revolved around traditions many gods
They only decided to legalize christianity once they combined the false teachings and mixed them.
Which is why today we have holidays,idol worship etc...
true christians did not participate in the cultic practices of the romans
