Poor helpless Christian here to agree with jedimiller.
Alot of what you are talking about is also in the movie zeitgeist which I have seen.
There are many similarities to Catholicism and ancient peagan religions of which you speak..I agree 100%,, however as I was watching said movie I saw
the discrepancies to actual archeological fact.
Such things as Christ being born in december and being related to religion of old. Read the bible Christ could not have been born in december.
That is not my only point but I guess Ill have to watch the movie again to refresh my mind as thats the only thing coming to me as of now.
But anyway, It is not totally unknown to some Christians that the bible and everything that is in modern Christendom was a fabrication of the Roman
Empire. So Im sorry to inform you that your exuberant epiphany is old news. When I look at the bible I see many things that stick out like sore
thumbs in regards to the ways of old world religion.
I agree so many things are falsified. Christmas, Easter, Sabbath days, confession, idols, pantheons, latria, dulia, hyperdulia, and just about
everything in between.
What is often overlooked when reading the bible by many is when it refers to the "simplicity of Christ". That is...who he is in relationship to you,
and who he is in relationship to God. Everything else is quite erroneous and trivial.
I often wish I had the cohones to simply accept the life I lead as a Godless life, where I too Could have my own epiphany where nothing I did really
mattered and because thier was no consequence and I was merely an unimportant animal with simple goals like EAT,SURVIVE, REPRODUCE.
Where I felt Confident that I by myself with no help from anyone awakened into the world in which I become aware of the glory of the human animal! A
world where I could glorify myself above everything else and pretend to be humble to the rest of the universe.
UHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG>> Boring, that scenerio plays out like a cheesy SCI FI adventure from a 1950s comic book.
Well thanks for trying to awaken me anyway. When I get my head chopped off by the new world order or when Im led to the slaughter like the little lamb
that I am in the new age because I was to hard headed to take that pesky mark or whatever, Ill look back and think once again "Boy I sure wish I
could have had all the answers just like the auther of the Omega codes!"

God Bless You!
