ALWAYS LOOK TO SCRIPTURE, NOT TRADITION
QUESTION from E-MAIL: You say In your book that we should not give our tithe to help support our leaders (Rabbi). Well If that Is their full-time job (teaching Yeshiva, leading Shabbat services, traveling, then how should they be supported? Furthermore we meet in a building that we are renting and somebody has to pay for the electric bill! Yes, we could meet in a house, but there are more than 500 of us. What's your view on this? We put our tithe in the box every week. I'm not sure how every penny is spent. Our leader says it's also from the Torah (I don't remember where) to publicize who pays their tithe and when each year. They print out a list with everyone's name on it declaring who gave their tithe and how often. What do you think about that? - [from e-mail] ANSWER: ~ What your e-mail described was not a "tithe", but a social decision, which is fine, but it's not the purpose of the commanded tithe. The electric bill, and rent to house 500 people, are costs to run a school or club, and the payment being made is more like tuition, or club dues. The elders who teach are worthy of part of the tithe, in fact, a "double portion" (1 Tim. 5:17) of the meal fed to support the poor, widows, and fatherless children. Actually, no where in Scripture did any apostle take the whole tithe (10th part, ma'aser) for himself, to support him and his family! Paul said he supported not only himself with his own hands, but those who traveled with him. Sure, an elder is able to eat from his labors, but eat only, not pay mortgages, and personal support above and beyond staying with those he is teaching. The record at Acts 20:17-35 describes how Paul pleaded with the elders at Ephesus, which you should read very carefully, because it describes the situation we see today, which Paul wept over. Note carefully verses 20:32-35. He was speaking to the elders. Generosity to the poor gets YHWH's attention (Acts 10:4). But, one should first see to the support of their own family in need, such as parents, or close relatives, rather than have them be a burden on the assembly of saints (1 Tim. 5:3-11). Here, there was a "list" mentioned (5:11) that one had to be on to receive support. I would emphasize 1 Tim 5:16, which says: "If any woman who is a believer has widows in her family, she should help them, AND NOT LET THE ASSEMBLY BE BURDENED WITH THEM, SO THAT THE ASSEMBLY CAN HELP THOSE WIDOWS WHO ARE REALLY IN NEED." We are all to progress in knowledge, and although we never become greater than the one who teaches us, we should become like them. I teach and work a job, like bro. Paul. We are to feed the sheep of Yahushua, not fleece them. If one man has a group of 100 people who regularly "tithe" 10% of their income to him, that one man gains an income that is TEN TIMES greater than that of any one of those who "tithe" to him. You see, this is the "business" of the merchants. They often attend seminaries, which train them to be extremely successful at this, and they pay a percentage to their denomination. It mushrooms like an MLM, or pyramid organization. As long as one knows they are not paying a "tithe", but supports the costs of the group meeting, there's no problem. If there's 500 people, and each one gives 75 cents per week, that's $375 for a meeting place once a week. But, if 250 of them pay $20 each week, then that's $5000 a week. That's a big business, not the rental and electric bill. An elder is not to receive the whole tithe, but SHARE in eating with the poor among the assembly, if he doesn't work for a living like everyone else. I'm sure any man who is able to have the size income from an assembly as large as yours is, or even larger, would be very much against everything I teach on this subject. I could easily have 2000 or more attend a weekly meeting here in Louisville, and bilk them out of many thousands, but I have to teach the truth, and face my Rabbi one day. "In their greed, these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up." ~ 2 Peter 2:3. In truth, we already pay quite a bit more than 10% to support the needy, just through Social Security, Medicaid, and various other public support mechanisms in place. There is no "tithe" to "spread the Gospel" in Scripture. Also, when we give, we are not to let our left hand know what our right hand is doing, so our Father who sees in secret will reward us. Our giving is to be "anonymous". Reading all of Acts 4:32-35 shows that those in need received the proceeds, and there were no needy among the Nazarenes. "James" 1:27 says "Religion thathwhy our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." 2Cor. 2:17 says "Unlike so many, we do not peddle the Word of hwhy for profit". QUESTION: Christianity has always taught salvation is a free gift through faith, not works. Wasn't the "Law" done away with in the Mes
WHO RECEIVES A TENTH PART OF OUR INCREASE? LEADERSSHIP, OR THE FATHERLESS, WIDOW, POOR, LAME, AND FOREIGNERS IN OUR MIDST?
siah's atoning sacrifice, so we can now eat pigs, lobsters, blood, and ignore Sabbaths? ANSWER: What OWYhy's death accomplished was bringing an end to the ceremonial law, which required the shedding of blood for the forgiveness of sin. Our faith is in His atoning blood ~ we're covered! Animal sacrifices were not a permanent atonement, as the precious blood of OWWhy is. Nor could animal blood change the inner man. Our "faith" is in OWYht's shed blood covering our past sins, which is what all the animal sacrifices pointed to. Our life is in His resurrection, and His Spirit comes into us to dwell, circumcising our hearts with His MORAL Law. Allowing Him to write His Covenant Moral Law on our hearts is the New Covenant, promised at Yerme Yahu 31:31-34, and Heb. 8:10. This is commemorated each year at Shabuoth, called "Pentecost" (meaning count fifty). This is the 50th day after the Shabbat following Passover. This was when Yisrael was at Sinai in Midian, receiving the Torah Covenant, and took the marriage vows "I do". It is very fitting that the Spirit of OWWhy came into the 120 Nazarenes on this day!
The model prayer, called "The Our Father", asks for hYht's "will" to be done on Earth, and His Kingdom to come. His "will" is His Covenant Laws, the Torah, or 10 Commandments (the marriage covenant). The eating of blood is even prohibited (Noahide law) at Acts 15:19-21, and it goes on to mention Shabbat, when Gentiles went to synagogue to learn more Torah. The "Sabbath" was changed to Sun-day by Constantine, in his attempt to "universalize" his Empire. At Mark 7, the text is twisted backwards with the addition of the words ("He thus declared all foods clean"). Our Mashiach was really saying that we sin because "evil" comes out of our hearts, it doesn't enter into our mouth from unwashed hands. Sin. defiles us. The copyists added the words in parenthesis, to fit their lawless theology. (At Mark 7, the Pharisees were washing their hands because of a Kabbalistic superstition). Our "works" (actions) are evidence of our faith, as "James" says, "You see that a person is justified by what he does, and not by faith alone." (2:24). Read all of James chapter 2. Of course "legalism" is always taught as a bad thing, but only Shatan would teach people not to obey ~ remember the deception of Adam's wife, Chuwah. No Scripture condemns anyone for obedience, but rather all Scripture teaches that we must obey. "For not the hearers oi the Law are righteous in the sight oi Elohim, but the doers oi the Law shall be declared right." (Rom. 2:13). The Spirit is only given to those who obey (Acts 5:32). Of course this will get you labeled as a "cult", but that's OK. QUESTION: What is sin?
ANSWER: "Everyone who sins breaks the Law; in fact, sin is Lawlessness". (1 Yahuchanon 3:4). (The Gentilized name for Yahuchanon is "John".) Another way to translate the verse is "Everyone practicing sin also practices To-rahlessness; and sin is Torahlessness." Paul answers it also: "Is the Law sin? Let it not be! However, I did not know sin, except through the Law." Rom. 7:7. Rabbi OWYhy Himself said: "Whoever then, breaks one of the least of these Commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of hYhy (the heavens); but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of hwhy". Mt. 5:19. The teachers of Torah today are thought to be cultists, or heretics, because great darkness has spread over the Earth, and the Torah is Light (see Prov. 6:23). The "Word" of hYhy is the Torah, His teachings: "Your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a Light for my path." Ps. 119:105. Psalm 1 begins, "Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, or stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of mockers; but his delight is in the Law (Torah) of hYhy. On His Torah he meditates day and night." Torah has a feminine ending in Hebrew, and is called "Wisdom" in Proverbs. This "woman", Wisdom, is supreme; therefore get wisdom. It will unlock the mystery of Revelation 13:18, and many other veiled secrets. Sin is lawlessness, living outside the Covenant. While the Commandments of the Creator were known and applied, the "vineyard" was green and fruitful because the "living waters" kept it alive. The symbol of the Torah is the Tree of Life, memorialized in the lampstand called a "menorah". Removing the "living waters", the vineyard has become dried up, and the dead branches will be burned in the fire. The "oil" that lights the lamps of the menorah is the To-rah, the personality of hYhy. The 10 virgins in the parable at Mt. 25:1 illustrate the difference between the "5 wise" and the "5 foolish". They all "slept", meaning they died. When the Bridegroom comes, He will call them out, but the lack of oil will impede the "5 foolish" virgins. Man-made rules have caused most to be deceived.
QUESTION: What is "The Gospel"? ANSWER: Simply put, "Repent, for the reign of hYhy draws near." This "message", also called "testimony" is not popular, because it involves "repenting", or turning from sin. We must obey the Covenant, or Commands and teachings (Torah), but we cannot while in the "mind of the flesh". The carnal person "dies" at their immersion, calling on the Name of Ya-hushua, Who cleanses or washes the past
Torah-breaking from them, and He comes into them, enabling them to "walk in the Spirit", because He changes their attitude about the Commands ~ they love the "Word" from that point. The writing of the Torah on our hearts is the New Covenant. That would be your next question. QUESTION: Why are we here, and what is the meaning of life?
ANSWER: We were created to be companions to hYhy, and rule the universe He created with Him. This really sounds like Mormonism, but it's not that at all. We will "inherit" the Earth, and OWVhy will rule the universe from here. In the here-and-now, our purpose is to make "righteous offspring". That's not easy, believe me. Everything you see is passing away, and everything you can't see is eternal. We will become spatial beings, able to interact with the physical world as well as the unseen "space" or spirit energy, when the "children of hYhy" are finally revealed. "Going to Heaven" is a Pagan myth; it's not an idea found in Scripture. (By the way, when you read the phrase "Kingdom of Heaven", the word "heaven" was used to avoid saying the Name. It was probably changed by copyists.) QUESTION: Where is sin? ANSWER: Sin exists in the heart. Yerme Yahu 17:9 states: "The heart is deceitfulabove all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?" The good news is at Ezek. 36:26, 27: "I will give you a new heart, and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone, and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit in you and move you to follow My decrees and be careful to keep My Laws." When a person builds a thermonuclear bomb or landmine, a sin was committed. The idea itself was a sin if even the intention was there. HYhy doesn't make such things. Why? Because these things kill without selection! A gun or sword is not a sin to build, but their use can be. Automobiles and dynamite have killed, but they are not "sin". Sin is not outside us, it's in our hearts. OWYhy told His students to arm themselves with a sword the night He was arrested, so a sword or gun is not the sin, but the use it is put to. The same logic applies to "images". If you bow down to a statue, picture, or object (like a national icon) for any reason, it is an abominable act, and the object also becomes an abomination, and must be destroyed. This happened to the serpent on the pole, Nehushtan, so it had to be destroyed (Num. 21:8,9, 2Kings 18:4). Also, food, money, gold, silver, or other valuables become defiled (in men's hearts) if they were offered to foreign elohim. But, the person must know this, or there is no problem. Paul explains this at 1Cor. 8. We know that foreign elohim are as nothing at all, but all people do not know this. The LOVE of money is the root of all kinds of evil, not the money itself.
QUESTION: Who is OWYhl? ANSWER: He is the "Word of Life", and anyone who acknowledges the Son of hYhy has the Father. "And this is the testimony: hYhy has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of hYhy does not have life." (1John 5:11,12). The reason He appeared was to destroy the devil's work. "We know we have come to know Him if we obey His Commands." (1John 2:3). His indwelling enables us to do no sin. OWYhy is the Mashiach, Who came in the flesh, "Who, being in very nature hYhy, did not consider equality with hYhy something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness." (Philippians 2:6,7). OWYhy "is the image of the invisible hYhy, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created: things in Shamayim and on Earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him... He is the beginning and firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy. For hYhy was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things on Earth or things in Shamayim, by making peace through His Blood, shed on the stake." (Col. 1:15-20). He is the Spokesman Who made all the Covenants with Yisrael. He is the Ruach ha Qodesh, or "setapart Spirit", the resurrection and the life. "When he looks at Me, he sees the One Who sent Me."(John 12:45). Philip said, "Rabbi, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.' OWYhy answered, 'Don't you know Me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father.'"(John 14:8). He is the living Word (Torah) ~ the personality of hYhy, made flesh. The physical body of OWYhy being the "Son", and the mind being hYhy is a better "grasp" for our limited abilities to comprehend. I guess that makes me a monotheistic modalist. But, so were all the prophets. QUESTION: Is hYhy a "Trinity"? ANSWER: The Shema (meaning "hear"): "Hear, O Yisrael: hYhy our Elohim, hYhy is one! Love hYhy your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These Commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." (Dt. 6:4-9). The words "EhYah asher EhYah" mean "I will be Whom I will be". YHWH, Yahueh, Yahuah, Yahu-wah, Yahweh, IAUE, IAOUE, etc., are transliterations from the Hebrew letters hwhy / mnn. This Name means all three of the following: I was, I am, and I will be. "'I am the alef and the tau', says the Sovereign hwhy, 'Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come, the Almighty (Heb. Shaddai)'". (Rev. 1:8). The speaker was OWVhy, speaking to "John" (Yahuchanon) on the island of Patmos. Men who "interpret" the Writings with their own preconceived ideas can put a "spin" on them, making them seem to say things they don't say. They will admit that Mosheh and Daniel didn't think there was a "Trinity", but claim there was "progressive revelation" later on. If there were a "Trinity", then surely there would have been a great deal of explanation given in the Writings, because it goes against everything the Scriptures ever taught. You can't have monotheism, and trinitarianism! "I am hwhy; that is My Name!" (Yesha Yahu 42:8). "I am the First and I am the Last; apart from Me there is no Elo-him." (44:6). "Is there any Elohim besides Me?" (44:8). "I am Elohim, and there is no other; I am Elohim, and there is none like Me." (46:9). "Before Me, no elohim was formed, nor will there be one after Me. I, even I, am hwhy, and apart from Me there is no savior." (43:11). He is infinite in power, space, and time. He is not a multiple personality, but can be anything He wills to be. Zechar Yah 12:10 reveals Who died at Golgotha: "They will look upon Me, the One they have pierced, and they will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for Him as one grieves for a first-born son." TRINITIES WORLD-WIDE Since Pagan religions were (and are) based on sex, the father-mother-child triad were common to them all. The four seasons were interpreted as manifesting a great cosmic cycle from impregnation (spring) to birth (winter, at the solstice). The power or control over the masses was in the hands of the very few who were "initiated" in the mysteries, and could tell when to plant, when to reap, and when to sacrifice their children to the deities. "deity" comes from the word "diva", and produces the words divine, deis, and day; it means to shine. Here are a few of the Trinities from the past: Babylonian: Baal, Semiramis, Tammuz. (alt. Bel, Ishtar, Duzu). Ishtar was also known as Easter, Asherah, Astoreth, Astarte, Aphrodite, etc. India: Brahma, Shiva (or Devaki), Vishnu (or Krishna). The family name of "Brahmans" may have stemmed from one of Abraham's descen dants, due to the close spelling, so some say. Egypt: Amon Ra, Isis, Osiris (or Horus). (Note: E.G.Y.P.T. is said to be short for the Genie of Ptah.) I.H.S. originally stood for Isis, Horus, Seb.
Greece: Zeus (or Apollo), Demeter (or Athena, Artemis), Porsephene (or Nike). Rome (Roma): Deus (form of Zeus, also known as Zeus-Father, or Iu-piter, Jupiter); Venus (or Astarte, Biblia, Charis); Cupid (or Bacchus, Nike).
Celtic: (also known as Druid, Wiccan, Norse, Gaelic); Baal (or Woden, Teutates, Heil); Ceridwen (or Freya, Frigga, Eostre); Thor (or Balder, Taranis, Dero). (alt. Esus, Taranis, Teutates).
Canaanite: (and Phoenician); Baal (or Moloch); Asherah (or Ishtar, Easter, Tanit); Rom-pha.
Chaldean: (and Zoroastrian); Baal Mithras (known as "wise-lord" Ahura Mazda, or Ohr-mazd); Astoreth; Haoma. Persian: Shamash, Ishtar, Sin. Macedonian / Asian: Dagon (fish idol); Cybele (or Ceres); Deoius (or Janus). Mithraic: (Chaldean fusion with Indo-Iranian); Mithras (or Marduk, called Sol by Romans); Rashnu; Vohu Manah. Mandaean: Joshaman, Abatar, Hibil Ziwa. Manichaean: Ohrmazd, Maitreya (New Age "Christ"); Zurvan.
In Japan, the Shinto religion has the phrase, "San Pao Fuh", which means "one deity, three forms". The Irish use one of their ancient Druid symbols, the trifolium clover leaf, as a symbol of their Celtic pride, but also as a secret symbol of their Trinity. The male and female symbols used in Biology are the secret Babylonian signs of Nimrod (Orion, Sagittarius ~ the mighty archer/hunter), and his wife/mother Semiramis (Great Mother, Magna Mater). All of these things and many more, were the "interpreted" mysteries of the Pagan religions, overseen by Wizards, sorcerers, warlocks, shamans, and priest-magicians who exploited the masses. (The "Magi" from Babylon were priests of Ahura-Mazda (Mithras), the sun deity. They arrived when the Mashiach was about two years old, and the gifts they bestowed enabled the family of Yosef, Miryam, and little Yahushua to live in Egypt until Herod died.) Trinitarianism and Replacement Theology Replacement theology, or supersessionism, resulted from un-converted Pagans becoming part of the early assembly of believers. The educated men were influencial and wealthy, and they swayed doctrines to conform to the mold of the Pagan mind, simply because it was the easiest thing to do. It also preserved their control over the masses. The Pagan mind was already skilled at "spiritualizing" everything through interpretation, and the early Church Fathers had all come from this mold. Augustine had been a Manichaean, which is a sun worshiper. Anti-Semitism (from the word Shem, a son of Noach) developed from the writing of the Church Fathers. By the 4th century, it had become conspicuous; the record bears witness to it in this letter of Faus-tus, who wrote to Augustine:
"You have substituted your love feasts for the sacrifices of the Pagans; for their idols, your martyrs, whom you serve with the very same honors. You appease the shades oi the dead with wine and feasts; you celebrate the solemn festivals oi the Gentiles, their calends, and their solstices; and as to their manners, those you have retained without any alteration. Nothing distinguishes you from the Pagans, except that you hold your assemblies apart from them." The change-over to Paganism is right here on the record, witnessed by Faustus as it happened. Again during the 4th century, the learned M. Turretinwrote this into the record as he saw the changes occur:
"It was not so much the (Roman) Empire that was brought over to the iaith, as the iaith that was brought over to the Empire; not the Pagans who were converted to Christianity, but Christianity that was converted to Paganism." In the year CE 439, the historian Socrates wrote:
"Although almost all assemblies throughout the world celebrate the sacred mysteries on the Sabbath oi every week, yet the Christians oi Alexandria and at Rome, on account oi some ancient tradition, have ceased to do this." In the year CE 440, the historian Sozomen wrote: "The people oi Constantinople and almost everywhere, assemble together on the Sabbath, as well as on the first day oi the week." The "love feasts" referred to by Faustus were the original commanded appointed times from Scripture, called Pesach, Shabuoth, and Sukkot (Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles, Lev. 23,
Dt. 16). Today, those of us who observe these and the correct weekly Shabbaths are thought of as some kind of "cultists", or heretics. In reality, who are the real cultists and heretics?
The APOSTASY is here, folks, and has been for a long, long time. They missed the big picture, and became overwhelmed by all the small Pagan details. They didn't want to be accused of substituting Pagan customs, so they "reinvented" them by revisionism over time.
Coming out of this Pagan background, it is no wonder Protestants carried out so many things from their "Mother", like Sun-day, altars, steeples, Easter, Christ-mass, trees and wreaths, the Trinity, and the fake name they use for the true Creator. It's also no wonder the "Jews" are so appalled by the Christian religion! Abandoning the Torah, and calling the Mashiach by a Greco-Roman Name might not be the best way to begin introducing the Savior to a Yahudi.
QUESTION: What about Paul's letters? Doesn't he clearly say that all days are special, and observing Sabbaths were "shadows"? ANSWER: Paul's letters, especially Galatians, Romans, and Colossians have been used to "prove" certain things he was not saying at all. When Paul discusses the "Law", he is often speaking of the Ceremonial Law which dealt with atonement. When atonement for sin was made one time for all in Mashiach's death, the Ceremonial Law came to an end. The Moral Law, which defines sin, will be in force for all eternity. Consider what Rabbi OWYhy said at Mt. 5:17,18:
"Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah (Law) or the Nebi'im (Prophets). I did not come to destroy but to fulfill (fill full). For truly I say to you, till Shamayim and Eretz pass away, not one yod or tittle shall by any means pass from the Torah till all be done." The skies and Earth are still here, so the Moral
mm nomas ic.iwoei)
Law is in force ~ every letter of it. Also, if you read Acts 6:13, and 7:53, the stoning of Stephen, there is concrete evidence that the "Law" is in force, AFTER the "crux", and the resurrection of Mashiach. Acts 1:12 states "then they returned to Yerushaliyim, from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day's walk from the city." This not only mentions a "Sabbath", but also mentions a maximum distance (1000 cubits) one can walk on a Shabbat. Even the day called "Pentecost" (Acts 2) is Shabuoth, the 50th day after the weekly Shabbat, following the weekly Shabbat after Passover, every year. See Lev. 23:15,16 to see that it is the day AFTER the seventh Shabbat. (To me, Shabuot/Pentecost/Feast of Weeks is always on the 1st day of the week, and there are some who disagree on this.) The "Fast" (Yom Kippur) is mentioned at Acts (27:9— the "Fast" being the 10th day of the 7th moon, in the autumn, when the storms at sea make traveling hazardous).
When Paul writes at Romans 14 about "fasting" and special days, he is addressing traditions of the Yahudim that arose, not Commandments. When the Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE, it became a custom to fast each year on the "9th of AV". The Temple was destroyed both times on this day! Ferdinand and Isabella's expulsion of the Yahudim
from Spain occurred on this same day. At Col. 2:8, Paul says, "See to it that no one makes you prey through philosophy (commentary) and empty deceit, according to the traditions of men . . ." At Col. 2:21,22, Paul condemns asceticism (obsessive self-denial, austere living) because these are the commands and teachings of men. Another place Paul's writings are used to negate Commandments is Col. 2:11-23. If you read the various translations, you will see huge differences in the texts, and even sentences that say the opposite of other
translations. The text says, "Let no one judge you . . . BUT the body of Mashiach." The KJV shows the added word, "IS", to the phrase, "but the body (is) of Christ." At 2:16, it is being stressed that only the body of Mashiach should "judge" what you eat or drink, or regarding a religious festival, New Moon celebration, or a Shab-bat Day. Then at 2:17, he says these things are shadows of things to come. The NIV butchered the text, and men over the years have read into the text what they wanted to see. QUESTION: Should we use crucifixes with, or without, the body of the Savior on them? ANSWER: Many things thought, done, and said within the various denominations of Christendom can be traced to Constantine I. He set the pattern for Sun-day and Easter, and gave us the labarum emblem, a circle with a crux beneath it. This symbol, complete with the chi-rho letters in the circle, are on coins that date back to the 2nd century BCE. Tradition says that his aging mother, Helena, traveled to Yerushaliyim to find the actual wooden "cross" which the Savior hung on. It is claimed that she dug it up! Today, supposedly the pieces of this "discovery" are scattered all over the Earth. If brought together, there would be enough splinters to fill several railroad cars. Catholic "altars" contain 5 relics each, which the priest-craft kiss during their rituals. These relics are anything from human remains to clothing fragments of "saints", and often there is also a splinter of "cross wood" in the "altar". We have already seen that Pagans used the crux as their symbol of the sun, and the word in our translations came from the Latin Vulgate. Thanks to Constantine, the symbol of Christianity is the cross symbol. The 1965 World Book Encyclopedia vol. VII states: "Cross forms were used as symbols, religious or otherwise, long before the Christian era in almost every part of the world . . . This symbol had a wide diffusion before the Christian era in Europe, Asia, and America, and is commonly thought to have been an emblem of the sun, or fire; and hence, of life."
The ancient symbol of life to the Egyptians was the crux ansata, or ansate cross (ankh or anchor), and began to be embraced by Coptic Christians from their Pagan surroundings. The 1945 Encyclopedia Americana states, "The symbol of the cross was used throughout the world since the later Stone Age; Greek pre-Christian crosses were the tau and swastika; the cross first became a symbol of Christianity during the reign of Constantine."
The swastika is four Greek gamma letters, and it is also seen prominently displayed on the entrances of Hindu and Buddhist temples, as an emblem of the "wheel of Samsara". The 3rd Reich used it to identify itself with Christianity in Nordic caricature (runes), as all scholars agree.
