I have just watched this documentary “Constantine, Christianity, Mithraism, & Osiris”, and while it does cite some of the same evidence that I use, it is just like a meal laced with poison. There may be some taste and some nourishment in it, but its real purpose and effect will be to make its consumer sick. There is an ‘editorial perspective’ to it that is very obvious from its beginning to end.
This Simcha fellow is just like all of the rest of his ilk. He has no clue what the relationship was between the so-called gods and religions of the ancient Mediterranean Region. He is just parroting all of the other History (etc.) Channel talking heads who completely misunderstand the connections between these ‘gods’ and the groups that worshiped them. He cannot read the scenes on Constantine’s Arch of Triumph, and does not understand what he is looking at. For example, I have saved two important images from the video. These are of Jupiter Marimus as ‘Father Tiber’ the NARAYANA of Rome. Jupiter MARIMUS and Juno MARINA were NARAYANA and NARAYANI as worshiped at ROME. In Egypt the 4 Headed and Armed Form of Helios Phanes appeared on the Primordial Lotus from the prone Form of NHL NILUS / NILE (NARA), MZRYM / NHRYM/N. Without understanding the identity and importance of NILUS / MARIMUS / NHRYM (Hebrew, Bible = NHRYM = NAHARAIM = NARAYANA) this Simcha ‘researcher’ is just another one of the blind leading the blind.
I am so tired of these History (Discovery or National Geographic etc.) Channel talking heads who are simply pseudo-expert New Age panderers exploiting the popular Anti-Catholic sentiments of the historically and religiously mal-educated masses. They all want name, fame and adoration in the New Age ‘spiritual, not religious’ milleau for some sensational anti-Catholic or anti-Christian expose. Does anyone who watches this kind of garbage ever consider the bias of these ‘scholars’ ? This video asks if the image of the leader Maxentius as an evil pagan tyrant was “fabricated”! It is clearly biased against Constantine and the Holy Tradition regarding him that was shared by both the histories of the Eastern and Western Rites of the Apostolic Church.
While attacking Constantine, it makes some broad speculations about Maxentius as a good Ruler who was more favored by the Christians than Constantine. Such supposedly objective ‘researchers’ who are really trying to destroy Catholicism and faith in the Jesus of the Apostles, often attack Constantine as if his influence was all that mattered in the history of the One Holy cCatholic and Apostolic Church! This tactic only works with people who are so badly educated about the history of Christianity, that they are vulnerable to such rot. Consequently in this Age when people in general ARE uneducated or are very badly mal-educated, they are very vulnerable to being mis-led about the important realities of the past.
