[quote=Sooner4Christ]Under St. Peter’s Basilica there is an image of a sun god or it seems to be some type of istic image. Does anybody know the full story on this. I do realize there was Rome and Christian Rome, and some cannot seperate the two as they believe Catholics picked up traditions and point to the son god image as a starting point.
Can somebody give me some better insite on this.
If you have the book “Catholicism and Fundamentalism”, you’ll see in the section on “Anti-Catholics” where someone uses this in their literature tracts. Mr. Keating points out that the “author” is trying to link Catholics with the Roman gods when Constantine was in charge.
The problem is, it’s not a Sun God. I’ll have to go home and find out exactly what it says, but I thinks it’s a scene from the bible, with the sun rising in the background, maybe a depiction of the Holy Spirit descending like a dove during the Baptism of Christ. I’ll get more details later tonight, unless someone else has this reference.
I wonder if anyone in this forum has access to the book, “Catholicism and Fundamentalism”. Hmmmmmmmmm.
Until then, my memory is,
