The bible says nothing about or a lick of anything to do with Christmas.. why celebrate it let alone any other holiday...
I believe you are a person am i worshipping you
Nobody worships Santa. And secular christmas doesnt mandate scandal
The bible tells you to do certain things and not to do certain things.. like to believe and worship God and God only.. Pagan holidays like Christmas make our kids believe in an old senior Bishop, Nicholas "old Saint Nick" instead of praying and worshipping God as the bible proclaims us to do... But it isn't religious coercion you pick what you pick just remember God is here...
Well if your a Christian at heart kind of...
So secular activity is prohibited by christianity?
I don't know when Christ was born.. but it wasn't December 25th 1 C.E
If your gonna celebrate Christmas then do.. meet family, pray and have a glass of wine.. no need of a load of Pagan beliefs...
but it isn't even close to the date of the birth of Christ.
"Santa" or old Saint Nick is an old Pagan tradition as well, his name was Nicholas an senior Bishop whom was born in Turkey and created the new testament that described Jews as the children of the devil whom killed Jesus.. this was later picked up and believed and or worshiped by German and Celtics Pagans.
We celebrate the birth of christ... How is this paganism
in my opinion Christ was born sometime in the spring.
December 25th was a pagan holiday. to keep christians away from this holiday the church made Christmas on December 25th.
there are two holidays on December 25th, a pagan one and a Christian one. Christains celebrate the christian holiday.
it's basically how a conquerer might put himself at the head of a country's practice, it says "see that practice, now it is done for me." it gains a new purpose and the religion gains more sway. Nothing wrong with that, I think. If it were not done this way, how many of those holidays could have survived anyhow?
The Christian church adopted it and absorbed the Pagans in as Christians with it.. the Christmas tree comes from the Pagans whom worshipped trees.
The Christmas holiday was the christian one merged with another as a political move by the church to not only make peace between cultures, but to take the chance at erasing the other's holiday. Sure, the pagan one had traditions that stuck, but its purpose was lacking and so was peacefully assimilated and the purpose that took lead was the Christian one. So now it can't even be called a pagan holiday, and it is indeed a Christian one, because the Christian one can survive with the others traditions but traditions do not make the belief.
Christmas is not mentioned in the bible.. let alone it being introduced to Christianity by Roman catholics and Roman Paganists.. there is no proper proof of the exact date of Jesus 's birth.. As is said Roman Pagans introduced Christmas they celebrated by a week of lawlessness.
Christ was born in the summer. Christmas is a pagan festival of Saturnalia.
So celebrating the birth of christ is pagan how
Christmas, Easter.. Halloween ect...
