Do Christians

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

So you know your history?

Magna Carta was written in 1215

Magna Carta Libertatum (Medieval Latin for "the Great Charter of the Liberties"), commonly called Magna Carta (also Magna Charta; "(the) Great Charter"),[a] is a charter agreed to by King John of England at Runnymede, near Windsor, on 15 June 1215.[b] First drafted by the Archbishop of Canterbury to make peace between the unpopular King and a group of rebel barons, it promised the protection of church rights, protection for the barons from illegal imprisonment, access to swift justice, and limitations on feudal payments to the Crown, to be implemented through a council of 25 barons.

If you pronounce Jesus as "Hey-Zeus," (since the phonetic "jay" sound didn't exist at that time in Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin or Greek), then the Hellenized version of Jesus's name has more to do with Zeus than you think. His name isn't Jesus anyway, because no Hebrew woman was going to give her son a Greek name after what Antiochus Epiphanes did to the Temple or to the Jewish people. His name in Hebrew is Yeshua. Not only that, he wasn't born on the 25th of December (seriously). That is a pagan holiday adopted by the Catholic Church.
Don't take my silence to mean I've agreed with you; I easily could've just lost interest in explaining how wrong you are.

Yes I am well aware that Jesus's name is Yeshua! And that Dec 25th is not his birthday. But it is celebrated by Christians across Christendom.

Many Israelites from the Dara Tribe of Judah escaped Egypt to Greece before the Exodus. So the connection between Jesus and Zeus could be!

Do Christians ever stop to think that baptizing pagan holidays and traditions isn't what their God wants them to do?

Since Christians supposedly believe that the entire Bible is true, then they already have their instructions for not including paganism in their worship. See Deuteronomy 12:2-3.

Their God being Yahweh! You should know that since you knew Jesus's name.

I am only pointing out that most Christians celebrate holidays that are not in the Bible (Christmas and Easter), and that they ignore the entirety of their Scriptures (aka cherry-picking which commandments to follow).

The Tetragrammaton (YHWH) isn't necessarily pronounced Yahweh. It is known as the unpronounceable name for a reason...

As you can see by the Royal Tribe of Judah family tree that Greek/Trojan Kings came out Judah's twin son Zarah via Son Dara who left Egypt for Greece before the Exodus.

Are you sure you're not Anglican?

Also, Revelation 20:11 describes a great white throne, which is very unlike the one you have posted here.
