1 Difference between Sabbath and Sunday? Note Genesis EdB Thu 03/26/15, 5:09pm 242084
  Not to be argumentative but I think we give Constantine to much credit and/or to much blame.

The Lord's day, "first day of the week" was chosen long before Constantine came into being. Today I was reading a excerpt from Josh McDowell's book New Evidence that Demands a Verdict. In it Josh wrote one of the things that convinced him of Christianity was.
"THE LORD’S DAY: All the apostles were Jews, and for any Jew to turn from the observance of their time-honored Sabbath Day, which was established in Eden and had been made a sign of the covenant-relation with God, Exodus 31:13 and Ezekiel 20:12 and 20, a miraculous event would have to have happened. However, these disciples did change their day of worship from the time-honored Sabbath to the first day of the week, and that custom has continued down to our times. As early as A.D. 70, Barnabas, one of the early Fathers wrote, “We keep the Lord’s Day with joyfulness, the day also on which Jesus rose from the dead.”

We also see this referenced in scripture in Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2, Revelation 1:10.

To me the name is arbitrary it could very well be Sonday as it is Sunday.

As to the origin of "halos" I can't speak with authority but I believe it is more artistic liberty than trying to honor any particular god. Ancients often portrayed their deities with a glow or halos around their heads but this was more to emphasis their radiance rather than any form of homage to a the sun god.

In scripture we often see a reference to a radiance or glow (possibly a halo) in the description of God, Jesus or even Moses after he spent time in God's presence.
2 Difference between Sabbath and Sunday? Note Genesis sonofmom Wed 03/25/15, 7:00pm 242081
  One other interpretation is that when King Constantine legalized Christianity he blended it with all the pagan religions of the day for a wider acceptance.
Actually, Sunday was in place as the worship day because of Zeus, the sun god, for which the day derives its name.
I am in agreement with Ed, as to the Lord's day also.
But I recently learned this is why the Roman Catholic Church put halos behind the head of Jesus and heads of saints. This was done in honor of the sun god.
3 God's Mercy Note Is 29:24 DocTrinsograce Sun 03/22/15, 12:48pm 242074
  "A smug posture over how I love sinners as Jesus does, unlike those judgmental people, is a pretty good sign I'm one of those people." --R. C. Sproul, Jr. (2015)

4 How many Marys are there in the new Test Note NT general One of the Kings kids Wed 03/18/15, 4:24pm 242071
  Thank you for your answering my question. I was curious since I mix the names up sometimes and as we Believers know, conjecture will get you in big trouble in truly understanding His Word. Blessings
5 Diligent to Enter That Rest Note Heb 4:11 DocTrinsograce Sat 03/14/15, 6:10pm 242061
  Though heaven be given us freely, yet we must contend for it. Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with they might!" --Thomas Watson (1620-1686)

6 Subduing the Flesh with Prayer Note Gal 5:24 DocTrinsograce Fri 03/13/15, 3:41pm 242056
  "There is never a mortified man who has not been a praying man. Subduing lust can never be obtained without prayer." --Christopher Love (1618-1651)
