Any similarities between Pagan SUN god Baal worship and “Christianities” SUNday observance?

Also, what about the obelisks or I mean Steeple’s on the top of those Sunday buildings?

Yes. Worlds of difference. My God is the same God who Elijah called down the fire from heaven from, who also ordered the 400 prophets of Baal to be destroyed. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The One, True, Living God. There is no correlation between worshiping Baal and Christians meeting to worship the Living God on one of His days, such as the first day of the week, just as the Apostles did. Everyday is the Lord’s. We are not bound to Jewish feasts, holy days or Sabbaths. Jesus IS the Lord of the Sabbath. All of our… Read more »

Baal worship directly correlates with sun worship: 2 Ki 23:5 And he did away with the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had appointed to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah and in the surrounding area of Jerusalem, also those who burned incense to Baal, to the sun and to the moon and to the constellations and to all the host of heaven. Observe the Sabbath for our Creator or forsake it for sunday and baal, which shall we choose? 1 Ki 18:21 And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How… Read more »

Yes. The Roman Empire were sun god worshippers before they became so called Christians. The first day of the week, Sunday, was the venerable day of the sun as proclaimed by the Emperor. As they started to embrace Christianity as their official religion, they changed the 7th day Sabbath to the 1st day of the week, Sunday. The Roman Catholic Church is also responsible for changing the Passover. The early church kept the Passover as Jesus commanded the disciples. It is the day we are redeemed from death as this is the night Jesus gave us his flesh and blood… Read more »

Sunday became the day of worship because it was the day Jesus rose from the dead. Although worshipping on the traditional Jewish sabbath would be just as good. Having a convention is a good idea though.

As the convention was adopted by Roman and Greek christians they would use the Roman or Greek name for the day of the week. They didn’t invent their own names for days of the weeks as it would be unnecessary, as a day is itself, whatever its label is.

the Pagan God is Mithra, Sunday was known as ‘the day of the Sun’ it was a holy day for mithra the pagan God of Constantine the great, the first christian emperor.

you’ll find other similarities between the Orthodox Jesus (not to be confused with the Christ, represented by other early christian sects, but then that’s another topic)

other similarities are
Lords supper
Resurrection on the 3rd day
miracles
virgin birth, Alma in hebrew means young woman who has not had a child, not virgin!

and born on december the 25th, mithra’s official birthday.

Nothing but similarities. christianity is based on astrology and sun worship. Read up on astrotheology.

the day of God is the day of the sun… the religion has sun worship stamped all over it

“The similarity between “Sun” and “Sunday” only occurs in the ENGLISH language, sherlock”

this calander and these terms were largely originated from the church… hence B.C. and A.D.

If you want to parallel Christan and pagan traditions (like that hasn’t been done to death here) there are easier and more accurate comparisons to be made.

exactly. Where in the bible are we taught to worship on sunday instead of saturday sabbath? churches follow man-made doctrines, evidently.

Christians don’t sacrifice their first born to a bronze idol by throwing them in to a fire. # anit I: 730-600BC. First era of burial. Consisted of relatively few graves spread over a wide areas. Tested bone fragments revealed that the remains belong to very young children; babies of a few days or months. Each burial was in a little vault, marked by a throne like cippus or grave marker. The children’s remains were accompanied by Egyptian style beads and amulets. Additionally, bird bones were found, suggesting they were cremated with the children. # Tanit IIa: 600-400BC. Second era burial… Read more »

Not a one

Lets start getting your facts straight junior Baal was a philistine god and had nothing to do with the sun.

Had you said RA (the egyptian sun god) you would have atleast looked smart
