Roman Lives Matter…. shaping Christian Opinion

The structure of the Roman family unit is very reminiscent of the early Hebrew family. There would be a ‘Head of the House’ which traditionally would be the eldest living male.  The ‘pater familias’ was the oldest living male in a household, and exercised autocratic authority over his extended family. All others in the house were considered dependents.

Families or “Gens” would structed in authority with males holding the highest power based on age, Grandfather first the Father, Sons based on birth order, Mother, Son-in-laws, Daughters, Freedmen Servants, Freed women, and slaves being least of all.

The members of the “Gen” would be collectively referred to as the “Gentiles”. To be considered as a gentile of the specific gen one had to trace their heritage through the pater, or the male members.

We can readily see in the scriptures the use of the word Gentile all throughout and its references to families, clans, tribes and nations. Knowing the construct of the Bible in the 4th century, with the Roman influence replete, because of the control expressed by the Roman Church, we see all people outside the Hebrew nation labeled as “Gentile”.

The principle of separating people into groups in this current day and age is nothing less than a hot topic. God has since the beginning of time separated the just from the unjust. In God’s view are those that submit themselves to His divine purpose and thus are called “Ammim”. We can see this plainly in Hosea 2:23

Hosea 2:23 “And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, {goyim} Thou art mypeople; {ammim} and they shall say, Thou art my God.”
In the assignment of titles in the Roman conquest of the Scriptures they assigned the lesser valued title of gentiles to the goyim.
The Roman head of the house had the position not only as leader of the family, he too, was the family priest. Romans believed the souls of men had an existence beyond the body but they did not believe in a heaven or spirit world. This is according to “The private Lives of Romans” 1903 Johnston.
Roman religious beliefs centered around ancestral worship first then the pantheon of supernatural gods and goddesses. Zeus, Apollo, Diana and the likes were paramount among the deities. Absolute power over all the ‘gens’ belonged to the god and goddesses while absolute power over the ‘gentiles’ belonged to the pater familias.
With this absolute power and authority reigning with the eldest statesman the remaining family members were considered liken to property and therefore merely chattel. The lowest ranking member, the slave, had nothing to afforded him when it came to appealing judgments by the owner, while direct blood members may have had a 50/50 chance of getting a reprisal of consequences.
The constructs of the Roman Church follow this rigid authoritarian structure to the most minute of details. The Pope, or  Pontifex Maximus was the high priest of the College of Pontiffs in ancient Rome, and was the most important position in the ancient Roman religion. His decisions, edicts and directions for the clergy and participants alike, are absolute and final. While a Cardinal or Bishop may appeal to the Pope on matters, the average attendee to the church has very little value in the issues.
The worship of ancestors are dedicated in the veneration of “saints” and is nothing more than the exact same necromancy instituted in establishment of the Roman pantheon. The worship of the supernatural deity is masked in the worship of Mary the mother of Jesus and is actually hidden in plain sight under the title of Queen of Heaven!
You can refer the blogs “Fracturing the Faith” to see the direct parallels to the  pagan rituals.
