The decree issued by Emperor Constantine the Great known as the dies Solis—day of the sun, “Sunday”—as the Roman day of rest (Codex Justinianus 3.12.2) had directly resulted to the present Sunday worship practices of Catholics and Christians. Historically, prior to its issuance, the Sun worshiping had already been part of the Roman cult system and quoting from Wikipedia, it states:
“Sol Invictus (“Unconquered Sun”) was the official sun god of the later Roman Empire and a patron of soldiers. On 25 December 274 AD the Roman emperor Aurelian made it an official cult alongside the traditional Roman cults. Scholars disagree about whether the new deity was a refoundation of the ancient Latin cult of Sol, a revival of the cult of Elagabalus, or completely new. The god was favored by emperors after Aurelian and appeared on their coins until Constantine I. The last inscription referring to Sol Invictus dates to AD 387, and there were enough devotees in the 5th century that the Christian theologian Augustine found it necessary to preach against them.”
Despite the opposition from early theologians in the 5th century because sun worshiping had already generated enough devotees, they were prevailed upon by sun worshipers and as a result, Sunday worship was installed into the fabric of Catholic and Christian teachings, which is still persisting today.
Hence, the theory of deceived bible scholars and historians that Emperor Constantine was Christianized is actually false, the facts being supportive of the conclusion that early Christianity was actually paganized by Constantine. As reference, the decree issued by Constantine states as follows:
- “On the venerable day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country however persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits because it often happens that another day is not suitable for grain-sowing or vine planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost.”
Therefore, despite of being scriptural, the law on Sabbath in the Ten Commandments, which must be followed by believers, is actually desecrated by the doctrinal imposition of the Sunday worship on Catholics and Christians. That being so, less likely that they will received blessing as it is negated in Isaiah 56:1-2, which states:
“56 This is what the Lord says:
“Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation is close at hand and my righteousness will soon be revealed. 2 Blessed is the one who does this—the person who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it, and keeps their hands from doing any evil.” (Isaiah 56:1-2, NIV)
