Through the Reeducated Lens of Christianity or the Religious Sects of the Faith!

Definition of Reeducate:

  • Educate or train (someone) in order to change their beliefs or behavior. (Oxford Dictionary)
  • to train again – especially to rehabilitate through education (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

Throughout the past few weeks, we have examined some difficult and complex issues surrounding names, oppression, slavery, occupation, and race. For some, the biblical perspectives have provided profound and meaningful insight. In contrast, others have found these last few Food for Thoughts uncomfortable and heartbreaking. Despite the emotional reactions that these discussions may have prompted, we must continue in the pursuit of becoming reeducated with the truth.

We must push forward to explore these issues to gain an even deeper understanding of their impact on our society’s past, present, and future. The three-part strategy that we have been discussing is more inclusive than the Yahshar’elite’s slavery in Ancient Babylon and the Transatlantic Slave trade. Christianity (Roman Catholicism) and Rome used the strategies to attack the Torah and the prophets, the testimony of Yahshua Hakashiach, and Nazarenes (Acts 24:5), AKA followers of The Way (followers of both the law of YAH and the testimony of Yahshua Act 24:14Act 18:26Revelation 12:17). This week will cover the reeducated masses.

Three-Part Strategy Found in Scripture

  1. Reeducate them in the ways of the Chaldeans as well as writing and speech (Daniel 1:4)
  2. Change their diets to foods that would defile them (Daniel 1:5)
  3. Change their names (Daniel 1:6-7)

4. …teach them the writing and the language of the Chaldeans

5. And the king set to them the portion of a day in its day, from the king’s food, and the wine of his drinking, even to rear them three years, so that at their end they may stand before the king. 

6. And there were among them of the sons of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, 

7. to whom the chief of the eunuchs gave names. For he called Daniel, Belteshazzar; and ChananYAH, Shadrach; and Mish’el, Meshach; and AzarYAH, Abednego.

Daniel 1:4-7 (HRB)

In this and all Food for Thoughts I recommend you read the Scripture(s) provided and the entire chapter they are from to obtain more insight.

Through the Lens of the Religion (Christianity)


Religions (Roman Catholic, Protestant, Judaism, and others) and world governments have slowly and meticulously reeducated and conned the masses over the centuries into following false doctrines. Through syncretism and inculturation, they authorized different ideas, worship practices, and lifestyles to merge into what people currently know as Christianity. Unless you read and study your Bible regularly and test everything (Acts 17:11), you will not be able to see the camouflaged paganism that influences multiple aspects of Christianity and the reeducated people. 

Far removed are the days when Nazarene (Christians) were known and persecuted for obeying the law and following Yahshua. Far removed are the days when the Nazarene and followers of The Way stood for righteousness. Now, many “Christians” live in the hidden delusion or according to their own hearts desire. But how did we get here? The answer is simple: the masses, including me at one time, were educated and reeducated by both learned and unlearned clergy, family members, friends, and the world with camouflaged paganism. Let’s look at what the Bible teaches and then what man teaches.

𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Qadosh Set-Apart Days and Feast vs Man-Made So-Called Holy Days

These are appointed times of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, holy gatherings which you shall proclaim in their appointed seasons.

Leviticus 23:4 (HRB)

In this and all Food for Thoughts I recommend you read the Scripture(s) provided and the entire chapter they are from to obtain more insight.

Yahuah has given His children Yahshar’el and grafted in branches (Romans 11:17-31) Feast Days. Days for spending time with Him and fellowshipping with family (the body of Yahshua), because truly your family is who Yahshua pointed out in Matthew 12:48-50. Throughout history, people have often turned away from the teachings of the Bible and its traditions that have been passed down to them. Instead of observing the holy days and feasts that have been appointed, many have chosen to celebrate man-made (artificial) holidays. This disobedience can be attributed to a number of factors, including a desire for greater freedom and autonomy, exposure to paganism and other similar ideologies, a lack of faith in religious institutions, a growing sense of individualism, or being reeducated with false doctrine. Whatever the reasons, it is clear that this trend has profoundly impacted how people approach faith and tradition in the modern world.

The 7th Day of Every week is a day of rest. The Shabbat would be Saturday on the Gregorian calendar that most of the world follows. Pope Gregory XIII established the Gregorian calendar in 1582 through the papal bull Inter gravissimas. Yes, the Western world, along with other parts of the world, has been reeducated several times, has followed the Pope’s orders, and continues to do so. Check out the Blue Laws around the world.

7. and in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the command-ments of men.”
8. For forsaking the commandment of YAHWEH, you hold the tradition of men: washing of utensils and cups, and many other such like things you do.
9. And He said to them, Well do you to set aside the commandment ofYAHWEH so that you may establish your own tradition?

Mark 7:7-9 (HRB)

In this and all Food for Thoughts I recommend you read the Scripture(s) provided and the entire chapter they are from to obtain more insight.

Man Made Feast Days or Holidays

  • Ash Wednesday – Pagan – There are two days of celebrated overindulgence and revelry. The first is Collop Monday, a day dedicated to consuming eggs and bacon. The second is Fat Tuesday, also known as Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, or Mardi Gras. These two days lead up to Ash Wednesday when Christians receive an ash mark on their forehead as a sign of fasting, which goes against the teachings of Yahshua (Matt 6:16-18). The fast goes for 40 days. This practice is also mentioned in scripture, where women worshiped Tammuz, and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 called it an abomination (Ezekiel 8:13-15). The mourning of Tammuz is also a 40-day annual practice that is initiated with the placement of the TAU symbol on the foreheads of worshippers, similar to the use of ashes on Ash Wednesday. The tradition of using ashes on the forehead has its origins in Hinduism. Were the people reeducated with Ash Wednesday in place of Tammuz worship and Hinduism practices?
  • Lent –  Pagan – Is the continuation of Collop Monday, Fat Tuesday, and Ash Wednesday. Christians say that Lent is a forty-day fast to honor JC. The truth is that Tammuz was worshipped and mourned for 40 days. This is a continuation of Tammuz worship. 
  • Saint Patrick’s Day –  Pagan – The origins of the day can be traced back to a pagan solar holiday that was created to worship the Sun’s warmth, light, and rebirth. This ancient festival was intended to usher in the Ostara festival, which shares many symbols with Easter, such as spring flowers, butterflies, rabbits, and eggs. On March 17th, the world celebrates St. Patrick’s Day, one of the two days in a year when an Equilux occurs. An Equilux is when the night and day are equally 12 hours long. Following this, the Spring Equinox begins, which is when the Sun passes directly over the equator. This event is considered the start of the Sun’s rebirth, recognized by the days becoming longer or the Sun ruling most of the day.
  • Good Friday and Easter – Pagan  – Watch Video 1 and Video 2 to discover the pagan origins of Easter. Were the people reeducated with Easter in place of Ostara or Ishtar worship?
  • Christmas – Pagan – Watch Video 1 and Video 2 to discover the pagan origins of Christmas.
  • Valentine’s Day – Pagan – Watch this Video about the pagan origins of Valentine.
  • Holloween – Pagan – Watch this Video about the pagan origins of Holloween.
  • Thanksgiving Pagan – Watch this Video about the pagan origins of Thanksgiving.
  • Sunday Christian Shabbat or The Lord’s Day– Pagan – dies Solis, the Day-of-the-Sun. Pagans have been worshipping the Sun since Nimrod established Babylon. Sunday has been used to worship the Sun as Baal (Lord), Bel, Shamash, Molok, Ahura-Mazda, Dagon, Sol, Marduk, Mithras/Apollo, Krishna, Amon-Ra, Aton, Woden (Odin), Zeus, Deus, and God. In 321 CE, Constantine decreed under the penalty of death that all people in his empire cease work on the Venerable Day of the Sun in honor of Mithras/Apollo. This mandate is still active in many countries worldwide, including the USA, as Blue Laws. It’s important to note that nowhere in the Bible does it state that the Shabbat was on the first day of the week or changed to the first day of the week.

Days of the Weeks and Months

  • 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 named them Day 1-7 and called the 7th day Holy, the day rest (Shabbat). 
  • Man named the days of the week after their gods and planets in the solar system.
    • Day 1 – Sunday – Worship of Baal (Lord), Bel, Ra, GOD, Zeus – Sun worship (Latin dies Solis). Emperor Constantine I, in AD 321, mandated the observance of Sunday as a day of rest for all citizens.
    • Day 2 – Monday – Worship of Artemis (Diana) – Moon worship (Moon day) (Latin and Spanish as Lune and Lunes meaning moon)
    • Day 3 – Tuesday – Worship of the idol Týr (Tiu) or Mars, the god of war – The French call this day Mardi (Mar’s Day), from which Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday derive. (Latin and Spanish as Martis or Martes)
    • Day 4 – Wednesday – Worship of the Idol Woden (Odin), the planet and god Mercury (Latin and Spanish as Mercurii and Miércoles)
    • Day 5 – Thursday – Worship of the idol Thor (Son of Woden and Freya) – Jupiter worship (Latin and Spanish as Iovis and Jueves)  
    • Day 6 – Friday – Worship of idol Frigga (Freya), Aphrodite, Venus (Astarte), and Isis – Venus – (Latin and Spanish Veneris and Viernes)
    • Day 7 – Saturday – Worship of idol Saturn – Saturn worship (Romans named the date Sāturnī dies, meaning Saturn Day). Multiple languages around the world call their 7th day Shabbat. This interesting fact provides more evidence that the Gregorian calendar Saturday is the true Shabbat. Look at some of the other worldwide languages for the 7th day – Arabic: Sabet or SabitArmenian: Shabat, Bosnian: Subota, Bulgarian: Sabota, Corsican: Sàbatu, Croatian: Subota, Czech: Sobota, Georgian: Sabati, Greek: Savvato, Hebrew: ShabbatHungarian: Szombat, Indonesian: Sabtu, Italian: Sabato, Latin: SabbatumMaltese: is-Sibt, Polish: Sobota, Portuguese: Sábado, Romanian: SambataRussian: Subbota, Serbian: Subota, Slovak: Sobota, Slovene: Sobota, Somali: Sabti, Spanish: Sabado, Sudanese: Saptu, Ukrainian: Subota.

Education is crucial to our lives. It shapes our perception of the world and guides our beliefs. However, in this information age, we have access to a wealth of resources that can help us discover the truth. We can follow the example of the Bereans in Acts 17, who diligently searched the scriptures to confirm what they were taught. We should not fear the discovery of truth, for it is the key to our freedom from the lies that Satan, religion, and world governments have told us. The Bible teaches in John 8:32 that the truth will set us free. We no longer have to live in ignorance and deception. Instead, we can embark on a journey seeking to become reeducated with the truth. This pursuit of truth requires us to be prayerful, Ruach HaKadosh lead, willing to fast, studier of the Bible, and diligent. We also must be willing to question our beliefs and examine the evidence for and against them. Only then can we develop a clear understanding of the world and the truth that lies within it and become reeducated with the truth.
