It’s interesting that so many current celebrities went to Catholic school, and some of them, like Madonna and Lady Gaga were quite good students. There are many of them who even went to seminary to become priests (inc. Tom Cruise and Michael Moore).

Where did I read
Dan shall be a serpent by the way,
an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels,
so that his rider shall fall backward.
And in Revelations, chapter 7
is the tribe of Dan?
Have you ever considered Emperor Constantine I
in the history of the Catholic Church
Have you ever read
From Sabbath to Sunday by Samuele Bacchiocchi?
"The fact that as a result of Hadrian's edict Judeo-Christian members and bishops were replaced by gentile ones, indicates that a clear distinction was made at that time between the two. We would assume that the distinction was limited not only to the racial factor, but that it included also a new theological orientation in particular toward characteristic festivals such as Passover and the Sabbath. This hypothesis is supported by the testimony of Epiphanius who in his lengthy report about the controversy over date of the celebration of Passover states:
`The controversy arose [literally, was stirred up] after the exodus of the bishops of the circumcision [A.D. 135] and it has continued until our time.'The bishop makes special reference to the fifteen Judeo-Christian bishops who administered the Church of Jerusalem up to A.D. 135 and who up to that time had practiced the quartodeciman Passover [the Passover on the 14th of Nisan!] since they base themselves on a document known as the apostolic constitutionswhere the following rule is given:
`You shall not change the calculation of time, but you shall celebrate it at the same time as your brethren who came out of the circumcision. With them observe the Passover'"
(From Sabbath to Sunday, p. 161,).
Where the Council of Nicea (325 A.D.) laid the groundwork for the ultimate expunging of all traces of "Jewishness" from the doctrines and customs of the church, the Council of Laodicea (whose date is a subject of some controversy), positively confirmed it.
Canon 29 of the Council of Laodicea said:
"...Christians should not Judaize and should not be idle on the Sabbath, but should work on that day; they should, however, particularly reverence the Lord's day [Sunday] and, if possible, not work on it, because they are Christians."
For some period of time, because of the growing confusion in the apostate church, both the Sabbath and Sunday were being observed. Two contemporary ancient historians, Sozomen (who lived about A.D. 440) and Socrates (who lived about A.D. 439) documented this dual observance.
Socrates wrote: "Although almost all churches throughout the world celebrate the sacred mysteries [the Eucharist] on the Sabbath of every week, yet the Christians of Alexandria and at Rome, on account of some ancient tradition, have ceased to do this." (From Sabbath to Sunday, p. 196).
Notice! These historians, writing more than four centuries after the time of the resurrection of Christ, more than twice the length of time the United States has existed as a nation, admit that
"almost all churches throughout the world celebrate ... the Sabbath
Sozomen also wrote,
"...the people of Constantinople, and almost everywhere, assemble together on the Sabbath as well as on the first day of the week..." (Ibid. p. 197).
Any serious student of ecclesiastical history MUST read Dr. Samuele Bacchiochi's book From Sabbath to Sunday. The absolute documentation of how Easter was substituted for the Passover, how Sunday was substituted for the Sabbath is totally conclusive!
Remember, God established His Sabbath day as the great IDENTIFYING SIGN, like a stamp, symbol, label, or MARK between Himself and His people!
Is it any wonder that the tribe of Dan and the Catholic Church lead people astray?
