LACTANIUS

Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists
in response to reader comment: "God in three Persons, Blessed Trinity"

Lacantius again i appreciate your thorough knowledge of what you truly believe. Egyptian trinity indeed was a myth as Horus the Sun God was a non entity. However, people from Egypt to Rome served the Sun God from Horus to Saternalia born December 25. Constantine just gave Christians a day to celebrate like the pagans did and thus the birth of Jesus became December 25, when the Bible says he was born 6 months after John the Baptist. John was born in the Spring,

Arius was not trying to change things but keep them as it was Jesus was the Son not the Father. The Holy Spirit had no name. The Father had a name from Moses til now, YHWH or Jehovah in English. The Son had a name Jesus the Christ. Satan has indeed blinded the minds of the people so the good news about the Christ might not shine through-2 Co. 4:4. The Kingdom is that good news. Arius was messing up the good thing of the Catholic Church with Constantine and he was a threat to political correctness in Rome. Constantine gave a Christian name to many pagan ideas, and just before he died he was baptized as a Christian. (smile) He was on both sides.

I enjoy serving the same God Jesus served. Jesus said he was going to his Father and my father. Remember again, Jesus was already a person before he was sent by someone. Was he lying? You and I know he was not. Jesus has returned to the right hand of the Father.

Catholic Encyclopedia even says, it is a mystery to cover up this attempt to make a Almighty God out of a Mighty God. Jesus is a mediator, so when I pray to God, Jesus mediates my prayers for me. If Jesus was God, why a mediator?
