Other religions: December 2005 Archives

My wake-up call


A JW named Dorothy called me this morning to tell me helpfully that Christmas was based on Mithra-worship (not to be confused with the veneration of Mothra), that "Cornelius" (she meant Constantine) who had a vision of the Cross and conquered under that symbol never became a Christian (not quite correct there), and the holiday is based on the Saturnalia. Ho hum. I chatted with her a while, so she'd know I'd heard it all before, and gave her 1 Tim 3:15 to look up: "the Church of the living God, which is the pillar and ground of the truth".

Is this what they do now when they can't get into the building?

What? Who?

On life and living in communion with the Catholic Church.
