    Christian’s transformed some of the pagan holidays into Christ’s Holy Days. An Omniscient way of God replacing those satanic rituals with His Holy Spirit.

    In Europe and the middle east it’s winter about this time… Yet the Shepherds where sleeping outside when they saw the star that led them to Jesus unbelievable…

    We do not celebrate the holiday but we remember that our Saviour was born and came to earth so that he could save us!

    The reason we shouldn’t worry about the exact day is simple. God didn’t mention the date because we should live like Christ is born every day especially within each born again believer.

    No one has to prove exactly which day Jesus was actually born. For the same principles that no one knows the exact day of Christ’s Second Coming. Only the Father knows the day and time.

    Jesus was not born in December. Did the early church celebrate Christmas? Christmas was and still remains a pagan feast.
    We need to celebrate Jesus everyday by living in holiness

    out of 365 days people give our saviour and Lord just one day to eat and drink and say they are celebrating him, this makes no sense, the early church didn’t do this, we must celebrate him everyday by living in holiness. today believers focus on eating and drinking and feasting rather than righteousness. Today believers so easily identify themselves with the world rather than being set apart. This world is not our home, Our citizenship is in heaven. Let’s be set apart for Him.

    A NOTE TO THE ANTI-CHRISTMAS CAMP

    Let me ask you in a friendly and respectable way, I’m not looking for an argument.
    I was born on Feb 2, which is a high holy day for Satanist. Should I not celebrate my birthday because of that?

    Here’s the thing. Christians are supposed to try and make Jesus as attractive as possible to anyone outside of the church.

    I remember when I was searching out denominations (young, green, and with no knowledge in the difference between them) I immediately knew that I would not be interested in checking out the Jehovah Witnesses because they didn’t celebrate Jesus’ birth. I though, “What kind of crazy way of honoring Jesus is that?”

    Here’s the truth, when the world sees real Christians bickering and demanding that Christmas is STILL a pagan holiday, (which clearly it is not because that was the past, and this is now in which there lies a big difference), they find nothing attractive about those kinds of whacked-out (in their minds) Christians who would not want to celebrate the birth of Jesus. They don’t understand your objection, thereby you may be driving away potential Christian, just as I was driven away from the JW’s in the example above. Is you public dislike, the borders hatred worth the possible salvation of another?

    This is the one time of the year that non-Christians are open to Jesus. Christmas music is in the air, and many people are filled with good will to others. Does it really make any sense to put forth an anti-Christmas message when you can attract more people to the Lord by recognizing that yes, Jesus is the Lord bone in and manger, yes He was born to save us and bring love and peace, and use that with a positive spin instead of the other negative way?
    Try and remember what it was like your first Christmas as a new born again Christian… it was awesome. The Holy Spirit within leapt with joy inside you, yet when you matured and found that the roots of Christmas date back to a pagan holiday it soured Christmas for you – but just because you don’t (or can’t) enjoy Christmas anymore should you really take away that kind of joy for new Christians, or people that might come to know the Lord through this holiday?

    COMMON SENSE
    In 1 Cor 8 Paul is conveying that it’s ok for Christians to eat meat sacrificed to Idols,
    NOTE: “But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.”
    It was only to those weaker Christians that couldn’t get past eating something that was sacrificed to an idol that the stronger Christians were to back off for the conscience sake of the weaker. (1 Cor 8:8-9).
    In the exact same sense, if you think Christmas is STILL a pagan holiday, that’s ok, for your conscious sake I’ll back off, but it isn’t right for you to demand others not celebrate it, or condemn those that do either. But if you really are mature

    The answer to the picture below, “SHOLD CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS?” is a resounding Y E S!
    You have the freedom to do so in Christ.

    Anyone who calls Christmas pagan is lost… SMH. Those history where fabricated. Let’s say it was, did the devil make anything? The earth is the Lord’s. Secondly Was Jerusalem originally for Israel? NO! BUT in heaven there will be a new Jerusalem. God took it over… Zion wasn’t originally for Israel until David took over yet the claim Zion now… SMH

    No one know the date but was Jesus born or not?

    And also I bet y’all would still be foolish to say all these even if it was in March 3rd or something…

    You don’t celebrate Christmas but you claim you celebrate Easter. When was the date Jesus died and resurrected because the date changes yearly but you celebrate it yearly.

    Who are you fooling? YOURSELF!!!!

      I think many are missing the point. Many are arguing over when Jesus was born. It doesent matter. God did not command that we celabrate the birth of Jesus, so we don’t celebrate it.

    A rose by any other name, still smells the same. Everything about Christmas, other than the title is completely pagan. And if anyone actually did a little research, rather than denying the truth in order to cling to tradition, they’d know this.
    The same goes for Easter. You can’t just place the face of Messiah as it were, upon pagan traditions, and expect it to be holy. That is the sin of the golden calf. Placing The Name of “God” upon an idol. And Halloween isn’t even disguised, openly pagan, and still so many justify observing it.
    Messiah was not born in the month if Dec. Everything about the scriptural account contradicts the idea of a Dec. birth.

    The birth of Jesus the Son of God was accompanied by great events. The angels of God appeared and praised the Son of God. No one questioned their right to celebrate Christmas. The shepherds went to the place where Jesus was born and sang praises to the Lord. No one questioned their right to celebrate Christmas. And finally, three wise men from the east arrived with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to bow down and worship the Messiah. No one questioned their right to celebrate Christmas.

    Love, Love, Love your post Postlewait Kathleen. Jesus is the author and finisher of days. So what if a few pagan gods tried to call his days by their names, they have never owned the days, they all belong to Jesus. Creator, Redeemer, Lord of All.
