Mother’s Day Idolatry
The Mother Earth pantheism, the essence of a state-sponsored religion, really should be treated no differently than any other religion.
“Mother’s Day dates back to ancient cultures in Greece and Rome. In both cultures, mother goddesses (Queen of Heaven), were worshipped during the springtime with religious festivals.
The ancient Greeks paid tribute to the powerful goddess Rhea, the wife of Cronus, known as the Mother of the Gods (Queen of Heaven).
Similarly, evidence of a three-day Roman festival in Mid-March called Hilaria, to honor the Roman goddess Magna Mater, or Great Mother, dates back to 250 BCE.
As Christianity spread throughout Europe, the celebration of the “Mother Church” replaced the pagan tradition of honoring mythological goddesses. The fourth Sunday in Lent (Weeping for Tammuz), a 40-day fasting period before Easter, became known as Mothering Sunday.
To show appreciation for their mothers, (Queen of heaven) they often brought gifts or a “mothering cake” (Jeremiah 7:18) and over time, it began to coincide with the celebration of the Mother Church, (catholic syncretism).
Mother’s Day always falls on the second Sun-day of May, and like so many other holidays rooted in pagan sun-worship including Father’s Day which always falls on the third Sun-day of June, usually fall on the day named in honor of their most powerful god The Sun!”
The above information can easily by anyone who cares about truth. But what baffles me is when those who are exposed to the truth still continue in the errors of idolatry by their participation, by blatant or subtle ways.
The idolatrous cultic practice of celebrating this queen of heaven, also called Gaia, in her mother earth worship is now celebrated globally through the inclusion of all mothers.
