Jesus did not say: “I am the sun of the World”. Neither did he tell his students to replace the bread of the last supper with a round white wafer, and hail it like the sun.
I have for the past Saturdays focused on misuse of the name of “Jesus”. The worst culprit is the Roman Catholic Church, who have adopted paganism, and tries to tell the World that the Bible does not condemn people who promotes such syncretism.
This Saturday, I will display some photo’s that exposes syncretism between pagan sun god worship, Islam, and Catholicism.
The most amazing picture, are Catholic priest carrying the Eucharist wafer in the center of a monstrance that is an exact copy of the Sun. This procession took place at the opening Mass of the 49th International Eucharistic Congress in Quebec City.

When you see this kind of religious parades, The Vatican explanation of the Eucharist it almost funny:
A papal website gives the following message: “Eucharistic Adoration is spending time with Jesus who is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament”.
I guess the “Catholic Jesus” is to be found in the center of the sun.
Rome is here the obvious copy cat of what is pagan images of the sun god, or “Helios” as he is called in Greek mythology. On of these pagan sun god images of Helios can be found on mosaic in the Byzantine period Sepphoris synagogue in Northern Israel. Here four steeds is seen pulling the chariot bearing the sun god Helios.
Some of the oldest images of Sun god worship, is found in Egypt. This image is from the stele of Ur-Nammu of Ur (2112-2095 B.C.). The solar blaze is the sun-god, Shamash, placed within the crescent of the moon-goddess, Nanna.
The differences between worship and symbolism within Islam and the Roman Catholic faith is only marginal.
