If your trying to say that it is a pagan sun worshiping religion because of all of the hidden pagan things found in the various holidays, that doesn't hold any ground because the holidays are not apart of the religion, they are just celebrated by some of the followers of it.
so, if I do not have to celebrate Easter and Christmas to get to heaven and live forever, that means I do not have to celebrate them to be a Christian, which means they are not at all apart of the Christian religion in any sense or form.
ok, so on Easter daylight "wins the battle over night" which in reality when you look at that without a religious view from either side "pagan or Christian" "the sun winning the battle" is just a natural occurrence that has happened before Christians or sun worshipers even existed.
and if the pagan view on "the sun winning the battle against night"
couldn't the Christian view on that event happening on the exact day that Jesus rose from the dead "Easter" represent Jesus "the light" winning the battle against sin "darkness"?
and you speak of sun halos on the top of Jesus' head in depictions of him, those are man made depictions and no where in the bible will you read about a halo, so if halo's are NOT in the bible and the Christian religion is based on the bible then that is a false representation of the bible and the Christian religion and is not apart of it, this is a given but because it is not apart of the religion it cannot be used as evidence of Christianity being sun worship.
if you can say that the pagan view on the 12 disciples is the 12 zodiac symbols then couldn't the 12 disciples on the Christian end of the spectrum represent the 12 tribes of Israel?
and for the fish symbol, does it say anywhere in the bible that you need to represent your faith with a symbol of a fish?
no? Then it is not apart of the Christian religion and cannot be used as evidence in the way you intended.
this was a fun discussion, good luck in the voting period!
