Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever, Amen. — Romans 1:25
As far back as 10,000 B.C history is abundant with carvings and paintings reflecting earlier cultures respect and adoration—every morning the sun will rise from the east bringing vision, warmth and life, erasing the coldness of darkness for twelve hours earlier cultures knew the effects of the sun from the abundance of crops to the survival of life on the Earth. The letter “ O “ used to be the name of the sun and “ O “ meaning the “ One “ so does “ On “ this word is supposed to mean the sun then the Greeks translated it into “ Helios “ or “ Sol “ Hel; An ancient root “ to shine “ as in the Greek Helios “ sun “ Hebrew Helel “ Bright “, The soft H Interchanges with S; and in other languages Sal, or Sil is the same Latin Sol “ sun “ Akkadian and Turkish Sil “ Shine.

Constantine the Great was a Roman Emperor who reigned from A.D. 306 to 337. Tradition has it that on his way to an important battle in A.D. 312, a vision of a flaming cross appeared to him with the inscription, “In this sign conquer.” He therefore authorized his mostly pagan soldiers to place a cross on their shields, and went on to win the battle. Believing the Christian God to be his secret to military success and the key to uniting his empire, Constantine adopted Christianity as the official religion of Rome in A.D. 324. His life continued to be marred by bloodshed and political intrigue until his death, but through his influence the bishops of Rome gained momentum and made amazing ascendancy to political and temporal power.
The real secret of Constantine and the bishops of Rome is their cunning introduction of sun worship and paganism into Christianity. It was done so shrewdly that, incredibly, it has been veiled within the faith for centuries. Through Constantine, paganism and christianity joined forces obscuring truth in the Roman Empire.
Historical records show us that Constantine was an innate sun-worshiper. In one event he declared, “On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed” He made this decree in honor of the sun after his supposed conversion to christianthiesm—Constantine, even after his transmogrification into christianthesm Constantine faithfully remained Pagan.
One of the earliest occurances of sun worship into the church was through the spring pagan festival—the festival was celebrated in honor of Eostre according to the eighth century cleric Bede. The festival often honored a goddess like Ishtar, and one of the more popular tall-tales of this time concerned the god Attis ( Mentioned above )who was said to be resurrected each year during the month of March. According to one tradition, the festival of Attis began as a day of blood on a black Friday and culminated after three days in a day of rejoicing over a resurrection. These spring festivals eventually became the Christian festival of Easter, complete with Hiding eggs full if candy and and dressing up as rabbits and we all know what rabbits like to do right? both ancient pagan symbols of fertility.
Yet this remains one of the favorite Holidays celebrated by Christians.
