Remember the Jews who built the temples that held these zodiacal mosaics had spent quite a long time in Babylon learning all sorts of Satanic occult crap and the bad habit of burning babies in HOLOCAUSTS long before Hitler's men thought it a wonderful process.
The builders also hated Jesus and preferred Babylonian false gods.
Maybe the temples were windowless like the room Ezekiel saw as written at Ezekiel 8 in which Jews had the bad habit of making and worshipping graven images?
One thing we can be sure of is that the mosaics were not made by REAL CHRISTIANS as by the estimated date of production the REAL CHRISTIANS had emigrated out to England and America.
Zodiac references may be found in the ancient Babylonian texts and artifacts as well as in ancient China. Somewhat similar representations of the sky are also apparent in the artifacts of pre-columbian civilization in Central and South America. (North American natives, who were basically itinerant hunter-gatherers, didn't create much in the way of esoteric confabulations.)
Greeks and Romans adopted the astronomical references from the Babylonian culture as well as Egyptian sources. The church adopted most of its mythical ideology from pagan Rome Egypt and Babylon. Jewish culture has been rejected for the most part by the self-righteous church.
Jewish tradition holds that the Babylonian Talmud, a document in excess of 15,000 pages, is the primary source of faux-spiritual knowledge. There isn't one specific Jewish school of thought regarding Talmud Zodiac or Numerology.There is no such thing as a REAL CHRISTIAN as suggested by the quoted post.
According to Biblical record the first disciples of Christ were JEWS. Scholars estimate as many as 33% of the Jewish population in Jesus' day became believers.
The entire Bible, except for the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts, was written by JEWS for JEWS. Numerous references in the epistles attempt to teach gentiles the basis of Biblical LAW with regard to salvation offered by God in Christ. For the most part ANY reference to Jewish LAW as a basis for the post modern church religion has been denied and obfuscated despite Jesus' own words to the contrary.
Jesus didn't come to destroy the LAW (Matt 5:17). Jesus came to destroy SIN. Both LAW and the concept of SIN have been denied and ignored by the church both Catholic and Protestant. Thus the original definition of a Christian, as found in the pages of the Bible, are denied. Consequently there is no such thing as a "true Christian"".
When gentiles became members of the new religion they brought their pagan beliefs with them, ultimately corrupting the gospel as presented in the pages of the Bible. Jews were ultimately forced to either accept pagan ideology and tradition in Christian churches or invited to leave. Church membership thus became the primary requirement for salvation, NOT the blood of Christ.
The ideology continues to this day in both Catholic and Protestant denominations.There is thus NO SUCH THING AS A REAL CHRISTIAN.
According to the Bible, which nobody really believes any more, a disciple of Christ is justified by the blood shed upon the cross and by acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. NO OTHER requirement is made. Although disciples are encouraged to assemble for worship (if the government allows such a meeting), it isn't a prerequisite for justification in the eyes of heaven. On the other hand, A REAL CHRISTIAN is a person in good standing with church membership including the payment of a 10% religious tax for the duration of his or her natural life.
According to the Bible, those who are saved become Jews (Romans 2:29) in the eyes of God. Where then is the nomenclature of "christian" injected into the statement? It is not found anywhere.
Today the protestant church is riddled with occult influences, immoral sexual aberrations, religious con artists and anti-semitic attitudes. A real Christian should separate himself/herself from this mob of apostates. (Rev 18:4)
