Why did the catholic church name so many things after pagan gods?

Question by ~۞~ST£V£-Ø~۞~ the Sexy Beast =): Why did the catholic church name so many things after pagan gods?
They named the holiday easter after a pagan god. The months of January, March, February, May and, June after pagan gods. They also named every day of the week after a celestial body that was worshipped by the previous pagans. But the church is the one who made the calendar, why would they name everything after another religion which they supposedly oppose?
They could make up words or name their months and days after other things important to Christianity. Easter is a pagan God, I believe it’s spelled like Eastre though. Monday=Moon Day, etc. March= Mars, etc. I did not think about the whole easier to convert dealy.
The church did make the calendar, the Gregorian calendar named after Pope Gregory.

Answer by Jim
They adopted pagan holidays and turned them into christian ones as well (such as the saturnelia on Dec. 25th)

They did it to make the “new” religion of christianity palatable to the Pagan Romans. It made converting easier.

Yeshua Is My Name! (God’s Hidden Signature Encoded in the Bible)

Yeshua Is My Name! (God’s Hidden Signature Encoded in the Bible)

(1 VHS Video) Yacov Rambsel, a messianic rabbi from San Antonio, Texas, has found the Hebrew name of Jesus encoded in many familiar Old Testament passages. His studies in the Hebrew text are astounding. J.R. Church, along with Gary Stearman and Yacov Rambsel, provide amazing insights into the verbal inspiration of Scripture. Recent Torah Code findings have prompted a new field of Old Testament studies – Equidistant Letter Sequences. On the front cover, the Hebrew text of Isaiah f53:8-10 is shown with letters displayed in red at 20 letter intervals. Beginning with the last letter they spell Yeshua Sh’mi, which translates into English as “Yeshua is my name”. Yeshua is the Hebrew name of Jesus. This is just one of many incredible examples presented in this video.

The Purpose Driven Church: Every Church Is Big in God’s Eyes

The Purpose Driven Church: Every Church Is Big in God’s Eyes

  • The Purpose Driven Church

‘The Purpose Driven Church has brought focus and direction to more pastors and church leaders than you can count. What a gift!’—John Ortberg, bestselling author Every church is driven by something. Tradition, finances, programs, personalities, events, seekers, and even buildings can each be the controlling force in a church. But Rick Warren believes that in order for a church to be healthy it must become a purpose-driven church, built around the five New Testament purposes given to the church by Jesus. ‘The issue is church health, not church growth!’ declares Warren. ‘If your church is healthy, growth will occur naturally. Healthy, consistent growth is the result of balancing the five biblical purposes of the church.’ Rick Warren shares a proven five-part strategy that will enable your church to grow * warmer through fellowship * deeper through discipleship * stronger through worship * broader through ministry * larger through evangelism The Purpose Driven Church shifts the focus away from church building programs to emphasizing a people-building process. Warren says, ‘If you will concentrate on building people, God will build the church.’The thesis of The Purpose Driven Church is that when churches think first about their health, growth is sure to follow. “If your church is healthy,” writes Rick Warren, “growth will occur naturally. Healthy, consistent growth is the result of balancing the five biblical purposes of the church.” These five purposes are to “Love the Lord with all your heart,” “Love your neighbor as yourself,” “Go and make disciples,” “[Baptize] them,” and “[Teach] them to obey.” And those purposes can only be accomplished, argues Warren, when church leaders stop thinking about church-building programs and shift their focus to a “people-building process” involving fellowship, discipleship, worship, and evangelism. Warren, the founder of the fastest-growing Baptist church in American history, has taught seminars to thousands of pastors from all over the world, many of whom have successfully implemented his techniques.
