    It was under "Roman rule" that pagans (literal sun worshipers of an esoteric Egyptian concept) and early Christians (left over remnants of Jewish sect) were brought together under one thumb --Christianity, by Constantine The Great -- (i.e Council of Nicea, 325).

    1. CONSTANTINE MADE NO BREAK WITH PAGAN SUN WORSHIP AND ORDERED THAT SUNDAY BE SET AS DAY OF REST

    "This [Constantine's Sunday decree of March 321] is the 'parent' Sunday law making it a day of rest and release from labor. For from that time to the present there have been decrees about the observance of Sunday which have profoundly influenced European and American society. When the Church became a part of State under the Christian emperors, Sunday observance was enforced by civil statutes, and later when the Empire was past, the Church in the hands of the papacy enforced it by ecclesiastical and also by civil enactments." Walter W. Hyde, Paganism to Christianity in the Roman Empire, 1946, p. 261.

    "Constantine labored at this time untiringly to unite the worshipers of the old and the new into one religion. All his laws and contrivances are aimed at promoting this amalgamation of means melt together a purified heathenism and a moderated Christianity . . Of all his blending and melting together of Christianity and heathenism, none is more easy to see through than this making of his Sunday law: The Christians worshiped their Christ, the heathen their sun-god [so they should now be combined]." H. G. Heggtveit, Illustreret Kirkehistorie, 1895, p. 202.

    "Modern Christians who talk of keeping Sunday as a 'holy' day, as in the still extant 'Blue Laws,' of colonial America, should know that as a 'holy' day of rest and cessation from labor and amusements Sunday was unknown to Jesus . . . It formed no tenet [teaching] of the primitive Church and became 'sacred' only in the course of time. Outside the Church its observance was legalized for the Roman Empire through a series of decrees starting with the famous one of Constantine in 321, an edict due to his political and social ideas."--W, W. Hyde, "Paganism to Christianity in the Roman Empire," 1946, p. 257

    2. CONSTANTINE MADE NO BREAK WITH SUN WORSHIP AND CHANGED THE DATE OF EASTER

    The passover dispute between the Western Church and the more Scripture-adhering believers of the Near East was finally settled by Constantine's Council of Nicaea in the year 325, where it was decided that Easter was to be kept on Sun-day, and on the came Sun-day throughout the world and that "none should here-after follow the blindness of the Jews."

    3. CONSTANTINE MADE NO BREAK WITH SUN WORSHIP AND CHANGED THE SABBATH FROM SATURDAY TO SUNDAY

    First Sunday Law enacted by Emperor Constantine -
    March, 321 A.D. -- 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 so suitable for grain-sowing or for vine-planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost. (Given the 7th day of March, Crispus and Constantine being consuls each of them for the second time [A.D. 321].) -- Source: Codex Justinianus, lib. 3, ***. 12, 3; trans. in Philip Schaff, History of the Christian Church, Vol. 3 (5th ed.; New York: Scribner, 1902), p. 380, note 1.

    A. No.

    Western Civilization follows/swallows these same edicts--"Roman rules" remains the operative word of the day.

    IN CONCLUSION, THIS IS THE LAST ROMAN EMPIRE AND IT TOO SHALL FALL.

    Its easy, enter into a covenant with Lucifer, the Son of GOD…….

    Isa:28:15: Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:


    See how GOD reveals their evil doings?
