I understand but what I'm saying that I don't see this distortion as literally worshiping the sun.
In other words if you can convince a population to worship an object in the sky because someone else told them to do so then how are they ever going to be expected to figure out which god is the real one?
If this were the case the human race will never figure it out.
Think not as literally but figuratively. Constantine hated the true Sabbath and therefore on March 7th, 0321 he declared Sunday the official day of rest in the Roman Empire.
Many 'true' Christians were killed at that point for flat out rejecting 'Sunday' as the day of rest and worship. Jews in particular, that is Jews that had accepted the messiah.
The scriptures were changed accordingly to 'cover up' this fact. Acts being a good example as the original Greek states in Acts 20:7 "unto a Sabbath, unto a Sabbath....."
The lie states, " on the first day of the week the disciples came to break bread." That lie was inserted to cover up the churches sinfulness. And, yes, the church knew exactly what it was doing.
So, if your in the Woman and haven't come out of Her one will be judged according to Her crimes. Why? The words of God state such.
So yes Christians, literally worship the Son of God as a false God because the Son is not the Father, and figuratively because they worship the on the same day as the pagans worshipped their Sun God, double whammy!
