Note the last words in this hymn ... "Hail the 'sun' of righteousness."

Sun worship came from Paganism.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>

Charles Wesley wrote this hymn.

Christ, by highest Heav’n adored;
Christ the everlasting Lord;
Late in time, behold Him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail th’incarnate Deity,
Pleased with us in flesh to dwell,
Jesus our Emmanuel.
Hail the heav’nly Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!

Christ … the “sun” of righteousness.

The Progress of the Intellect: As Exemplified in the Religious Development of the Greeks and Hebrew, Volumes 1-2, by Robert William Mackay.

It was probably from ancient association and custom that Jewish and early Christian writers were led to look on the worship of the sun and the elements with comparative indulgence.

Christianity itself had adopted emblems and observances which caused it to be regarded by many as a mere form of sun worship. Christ was the “sun of righteousness” prophesied by Malachi, the “light of the world, the “day spring from on high.

Yes - additional teachings by Jesus you don't follow, use, utilize, believe, etc.

BTW - where did you get that they are blasphemous? Do you have a statement by "God" specifically stating such an unfounded claim?

Why don't you believe Jesus?

BTW - saying things against texts are not blasphemous according to Jesus:

(44) Jesus says:

(1) "Whoever blasphemes against the Father, it will be forgiven him.
(2) And whoever blasphemes against the Son, it will be forgiven him.
(3) But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, neither on earth nor in heaven."

One more thing Dan, the Holy Spirit is not leaving you to grope around in the dark. That little voice in the back of your head telling you the Catholic Church may be right isn't just your imagination, He may have led you to this forum for a reason.

It's not by accident that someone committing crimes has the title of being a "shady" character.

Light always meant right, enlightened, holy, saved, etc.

Dark (black) equated to wrong, sinister, evil, lost, etc.

If Jesus lived, he was a very shady character. He was so meek he put up with his father's evil nature such as sending humans to hell for not believing in him ... and for wanting us to stone each other to death, etc.

Had he lived, Jesus would have been nothing to rave about.

Good grief no. Why would we expect the impossible? Most of you that dispel the ideas of Christianity also believe that a Marxist makes a good President in a Capitalistic society. You see, whether is happened exactly the same is not important. The bible is written using different dialects, languages and are about places no longer standing. I would however believe that happened more so than a meteor hit, the earth cooled and made an amoeba and then Michael Jordan. Amoebas can't jump.

Ecl. There is nothing new under the sun. There is nothing to be added to the bible or taken away.

Catholics don't preach, follow or proclaim Jesus Christ a Lord and Savior 6. Catholics aren't Christian 7. Catholics believe in "works only" 8. The Pope interprets the bible for Catholics 9. Catholics are told not to read or interpret the bible 10.Catholics don't have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ----"these 10 are just for starters Ox!!! Want more??? Just ask me, an ex-Protestant who came into "true Salvation", the "fullness of the faith" and the "fullness of the truth" in Jesus Christ---in and through HIS One (and only one) True Apostolic Catholic Church!!!---the bride of Christ!!!!
1. Catholic do teach tradition trumps the bible. The Bible teaches to pray to God the Father in the name of Christ....Catholics pray to Mary and dead "saints"...I know...been there done that..

2. Catholics do worship idols...I know..been there..done that..CNN showed a video of that happening....in color and stereo!!!!

3. Catholics do worship Mary...the rosary is a prayer to her...they knell at her image (an idol)...speaking from experience..

4. The Eucharist is truly not the true body and blood of Christ..to believe that it is...you must accept the Bible teaching cannibalism!!!

5. Catholics really don't preach, follow or proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior...in forty years I never heard one do so!!!

6. Catholics aren't Christian..because they do not follow all teachings of Jesus...they follow traditions...the magnasterium (misspelled I am sure)...teachings from dead "saints"...etc etc

7. Catholics do believe in "works only"...I have heard Catholics defend this erroneous teaching..

8. The Pope does interpret the bible for Catholics...and you dare not question him!!!!

9. Catholics are told not to read or interpret the bible...I know because I was told not to read the Bible..

10.Catholics don't have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ----to do so requires to be born again "from above"...per Scripture..quote: Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.{again: or, from above} I have yet to hear a Catholic claim that he is a born again Christian...

Where is the rest of your regurgitated swill you get from the vatacan???

Wow. You should probably start considering where your soul will end up.

The best thing you ever did for the Catholic Church is leave. We have no room for people with your level of ignorance. I know that sounds harsh, but what are we supposed to do? You have free will. You rejected the Church and the Eucharist for a more me me me brand of Christianity that falsely guarantees you salvation.
Maybe you left because (apparently) you were the only one worshiping statues and felt like you didn't belong! lol.

Your theology claims that only those who believe in Jesus can hope to be "saved."

Muslims, according to your own dogma are only fodder for the Christian devil's hell ... with the approval and stamp of his father-god.

Isn't religion fun though for ... for those who see evil in others, and holiness in their selves??? Sarcasm intended.

Heck, have you seen the stock market lately.

Heck, anti-business Obama isn't even a good Marxist.

The dang market is up almost 100% from the day he was elected.

Boy, reality sure can be a downer sometimes.

Question: Jesus had a set of keys, right?
Did Jesus Christ give them to Peter or not?
You guys say you're word for word sola scripturist..
This one seems as obvious as anything written in the entire Bible.
The car keys?

No, Peter didn't drive.
