Sun worship is religious devotion paid to the sun either as a deity or as the symbol of a deity. Sun worship was practiced by the Iroquois, Plains, and Tsimshian peoples of North America and reached a high state of development among the Native Americans of Mexico and Peru. The Babylonians were sun worshipers, and in ancient Persia worship of the sun was an integral part of the elaborate cult of Mithras. The ancient Egyptians worshiped the sun god Ra. In ancient Greece the deities of the sun were Helios and Apollo. The worship of Helios was widespread; temples were built in Corinth, Argos, Troezen (no longer in existence), and many other cities, but the principal seat was on the island of Rhodes, (Greece) in the Dodecanese, where four white horses were sacrificed annually to the god and was one of the Seven Wonders of the World. A similar sacrifice was offered on the summit of Mount Hagios Elias, in the Taïyetos Mountains, in Laconia. In time virtually all the functions of Helios were transferred to the god Apollo, in his identity as Phoebus. Sun worship persisted in Europe even after the introduction of Christianity, as is evidenced by its disguised survival in such traditional Christian practices as the Easter bonfire and the Yule log on Christmas.

(See our extensive research on Easter and Christ-mass at the end of this paper.) We resesrch and investigate the bible and biblical history without bias, or prejudice and examine what doctrines have been injected into the Christian Religion, then carefully examine what the Christian bible, and history reveals about these subjects so the bible student can decide for themselves what to believe. We also believe that many ministers teach only what they were taught in their university thus not being able to think outside of that theology. For more information on Sun worship and the elaborate cult of "Mithras" see Sun worship in Christianity at the end of this study.
A colossal statue:
Although we do not know the true shape and appearence of the Colossus of Rhodes, modern reconstructions show the statue standing upright are more accurate than older drawings. Although it disapeared from existence after an earth quake, the ancient World Wonder inspired many people as well as modern artists such as French sculptor Auguste Bartholdi best known by his famous work: The Statue of Liberty. From this research we have found that the Statue of Liberty was fashioned after a sun god. The sun rays that come from behind the Statue of Liberty also show that it's in reality a sun goddess and should be condemned by a nation that professes worship to the true creator God of heaven whom has stated that we should destory them that are no gods, but are dumb and cannot speak or help in time of need. The command from the true God is "You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; Exod 20:3-4" (NKJ) (See our research on the Obelisk at the end of this study.)
This is the way satan gets people to worship and keep that which God commands us not to have. Remember the old saying, "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts?" The Statue of Liberty may seem like a good thing, after all it has such a profound meaning and it is embedded in our history so deep we could never get rid of it. Even if it is a sun goddess, we must keep it or we will enrage the people, right?
What does God say? Jer 51:17-18. "Everyone is dull-hearted, without knowledge; every metalsmith is put to shame by the carved image; for his molded image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. They are futile, a work of errors; in the time of their punishment they shall perish.
The image next to the Statue of liberty is Sol Invictus as well as the coin ("Invincible Sun") and was the official sun god of the later Roman Empire.
The slab at the end was said to be a dedication slab representing the Sun god crowned by solar rays.
Festival on 25 December is sometimes thought to be responsible for the date of Christmas.
In 274 the Roman emperor Aurelian made it an official cult alongside the traditional Roman cults. (Look familiar? )
