Do you think that the word ‘Church’ is in the Bible? It’s not.
The name for a group of believers in the Greek NT is ‘Ecclesia” which means “Called-Out” Believers.
So where did the word ‘church’ come from?
“Church” has multiple streams of etymology.
One source may be “Kuriakos” from the Greek “Kurios” (Lord), as in “House of the Lord.”
The other source of the word “Church” reveals it is from the circles of the pagans, such as:
“The circular Stonehenge in England.
The Scottish “Kirk” and the German “Kirche,” are from the early word “Circe.” (note: “Greek Kirke became Circe in the Anglo-Saxon, which became Chirche in Church Latin who finally manifested as Church, daughter of the Sun, a woman who had the power to turn men into animals.”)
The word “Church” is derived from “Circe.”
The name “Circe” is well known by classical historians.
In his classical study, “The Myth of Kirke,” Robert Brown gives extensive meanings in the ancient Greek world and concludes that Circe’s simple meaning is “Circle” or “Circular” (p.22).
But it not only referred to a building or monument that was “circular,” but one of its main meanings was its reference to the ancient Goddess “Kirke” or “Circe.
“Circe was the great heathen daughter of the Sun God, famous for taming wild animals in her ‘circus.’
She also met Ulysses returning from the Trojan War and had an adulterous relationship with him that produced, as one of the children, Latinus, the supposed founder of the Latin race.*
And how is Circe pictured in the classical accounts?
She is shown holding a golden cup in her hand mixed with wine and drugs through which she controls the kings of the world (like Ulysses).
This Goddess, Circe, is also found in the symbolic teaching of the Bible.
She is the Great Whore who sits on many waters and seven hills.
She comprises the religions of the earth (all of them) which have been infiltrated with the Babylonian Mystery religion.
“I will show thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication,
and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication- having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.
And upon her forehead was a name written,
MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Revelation 17:2-5, KJV).
What a clear biblical description of the Goddess of the classical world known as Circe (or “Church”), the great sorceress. As a matter of fact, when Circe (the original “Church”) died she was buried on one of the islands of the Pharmacusii (as in Pharmakeia (sorcery)) group in the Aegean Sea in eyesight of the Isle of Patmos where the apostle John saw most of the Book of Revelation.
The name “Church” (Circe, the Great Whore) adorns all Christian ‘church’es in existence.
So if you think you’re saved just because you “go to church”, think again.
Does this mean we should just sit alone and read the Bible? No!
“Do not forsake the Ekklesia “Called-Out Believers” (Hebrews 10:25)
You need fellowship with other true believers.
Just make sure that your gathering together is a real Ecclesia, with others of like mind and not a than just an idolatrous, “Circe.”
