THE TEN COMMANDMENTS and The Council of Nicea. 

Rev. John O'Brien, The Catholic World, March 1994, p. 809, "The Sun was a foremost god with heathendom 70; The sun has worshipers at this hour in Persia and other lands70; There is, in truth, something royal, kingly about the sun, making it a fit emblem of Jesus, the Son of Justice. Hence the Church in these countries would seem to have said 'keep that old pagan name. It shall remain consecrated, sanctified.' And thus the pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian Sunday, sacred to Jesus."

Rev. John O'Brien, The Faith of Millions, pp. 421, 422, "But since Saturday, not Sunday, is specified in the Bible, isn't it curious that non Catholics who profess to take their religion directly from the Bible and not from the Church observe Sunday instead of Saturday? Yes, of course, it is inconsistent, but the change was made about fifteen centuries before Protestantism was born70; They have continued to observe custom even though it rests upon the authority of the Catholic Church, and not upon an explicit text in the Bible. That observance remains the reminder of the Mother Church from which non-Catholic sects broke away - like a boy running away from his mother but still carrying in his pocket a picture of his mother or a lock of her hair."

"Letter from C.F. Thomas, October 28, 1895, "Of course the Catholic Church claims the change was her act70; And the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters."

Changing the Laws God gave to Israel to keep the Christians in roman under the control of the Roman Emperor.

It is interesting to mention that a very similar thing happened to the Northern tribes of Israel during the ninth-eighth century BC. Because of the sins of King Solomon that went into idolatry, the Kingdom of Israel was divided into two kingdoms: The kingdom of Judah in the South and the kingdom of Israel, also called Ephraim, in the North. The king of Ephraim was Jeroboam. Jeroboam was not from the kingly lineage of David. He feared loosing the 10 tribes that were under his rule, so he abandant the Mosic Law and interduced the Oman made Aeasis. He divorced the Northern tribes of Israel from their roots in the same way that Constantine officially divorced the Church from its Jewish roots, replacing the Holy Feasts and the Holy Laws of God for pagan customs.

The "Sin of Jerboa" in the Church can have the same outcome as God said that he will relict those that are arrogant against the natural branches", the Jews. And therefore repenting for the sin of Jeroboam in the Church is a matter of life and death.

The divorce from the Jews and the Jewish roots of the Faith of the Jewish Christ has born children of disobedience, ignorance, lawlessness and paganism. The Bible says: A false prophet is recognised by his fruit. The fruit of institutionalised Christianity has been murder, hatred and massacres; (Crusades, Spanish Inquisition, Nazi Holocaust). But what about the Protestants and the Spirit filled Christians?

Martin Luther and other reformers were greatly used by God in the 16th Century to restore some of the truths from the Jewish Bible, both Old and New Testament. These Truths were lost to the Church in the Dark Ages. Constantine rejection of God's Holy Sabbath and the Biblical Jewish Roots were the cause of this. The Reformers restored the original truth of salvation by Grace through obedience to the Faith of Jesus Christ. At the beginning Martin Luther and others tried to win the Jews to the Lord, as they understood that the Jews were still the people of God and that the Gentile Christians had alienated them. However, the Jews by then had suffered through the Spanish Inquisition and several Crusades and they totally rejected Luther's attempts to win them to the gospel. Due to that, Luther became bitter and developed a vehement hatred against the Jews. He issued a series of articles and pamphlets including 'On the Jews and Their Lies'. In those he labeled Jews as venomous', 'thieves' and 'disgusting vermin'. He had a real problem with the Law of the God of Israel, to the point that he wanted to leave the book of James out of the New Testament, because it talked about: "Faith without works is dead", (James 2:20). The seed of hatred and anti-Semitism was transmitted through Luther to all Protestant Christians. The 'arrogance of the branches' and the 'Sin of Jeroboam in the Church' continued its destructive course, and it is still continuing until this very day.

A new reformation is knocking at the doors of the Church of the SECT of the Nazarenes. Go back to the roots of the Christian Faith of Jesus Christ. Back to roots of the Ten Commandments of the God of Israel.

There is none other commandment greater than these."
