A Pagan website?!? That's your "source"???
Did you bother to check on when Mithraism was? No?
'twas after Jesus, after Christianity. In the 2nd & 3rd century AD. And it was just a Greco-Roman paganist cult.
Maybe a copy?
Whenever I think you might have one working brain cell you fall into the abyss of ignorance again.
It is you that failed to check on MITHRAS.
FAITH has corrupted your mind. Facts are abandoned for fantasy.
How about I throw more facts at you. Google them!
I have nothing to hide... why are you hiding from the truth?
Mithraism hit Rome in the first century BC as the Mithraic cult fled Persia. Here it flourished as the Sun God Natalis Solis Invicti. The leader of this religion ruled from what is now Vatican hill, which is a place previously sacred to Mithras. This male leader was called Papa (which is how we get the word Pope). Books in honor of Mithras were called Helio Biblia, which translates to us as either Sun Book or Holy Bible.
But hang on!
Before Mithras there was Krishna in India, circa 1200 BC. Krishna was born of the Virgin Mother Devaki after being visited by spirits to announce the impending birth of an immaculately conceived child who is Gods Sun and the son of God. His birth was attended by wise men, as well as shepherds. Krishna was presented at birth with frankincense, myrrh, and gold. Krishna worked miracles, restored sight, cast out devils, and raised the dead.
Many hundreds of years before both Mithras AND Jesus, Krishna was baptised in the River Ganges, crucified between two thieves, died, buried, and resurrected in three days and worshipped as the saviour of men. He proclaimed himself the Resurrection and the way to the Father.
He was said to be without sin, of royal descent, and raised by a human father that was ... a carpenter. He preached of a great and final day of judgment and used parables to teach the people about charity and love. In death he stood transfigured in front of his disciples. Krishna was called the Shepherd God,Lord of lords,the Redeemer, and the Universal Word. He was considered,Alpha and Omega as well as being omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent.
He was prophesised to return to battle evil forces in a second coming. His disciples bestowed on him a word that means pure essence. That word is Jezeus.
But, oh no! Thats not all!
Thousands of years before Krishna, Mithras, and Jesus is the sun god Horus.
Horus goes back to Egypt circa 3000 BC. Horus was born of the virgin Isis-Meri on December 25 in a cave/manger with his birth being announced by a star in the East and attended by three wise men. In the catacombs at Rome are pictures of the baby Horus being held by the virgin mother Isis. Horus taught in the temple when he was a child. He was baptised when he was 30 years old by Anup the Baptiser.
Horus performed miracles and raised a man named El-Azar-us, from the dead. Not only did Horus walk on water, he was also crucified, buried in a tomb, and then resurrected.
Horus was known as the Way,the Fisher,the Truth,the Light,Gods Anointed Son,the Son of Man,the Good Shepherd,the Lamb of God, and the Word. He was also was called the KRST, or Anointed One.(It is worth noting here that Christos means anointed in Greek.)
There was a trinity with Horus: Atum the Father and Ra the Holy Spirit. Add Horus and we have the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In the later years of Horus, he had 12 disciples known as Har-Khuttie. Horus had an enemy (originally this was also the dark side of Horus, or his other face).
This evil enemy was Set or Sata. Horus struggles with Sata for 40 days in the wilderness. Some claim that this myth represents the triumph of light over dark. This triumph is most noted on December 25.
