christmas!

Last night at work i was talking to some of the other servers. One said he hated Christmas. Another girl quickly said, “WHY??? it’s Jesus’ BIRTHDAY!” and his response was, “Yeah, well if it was celebrated as Jesus’ birthday then I would be more loving it. But instead it feeds our egos, empties our bank accounts, causes strife when families who don’t get along get together, and it’s a big commercial promotion. Which is stupid and has nothing to do with Jesus.” Wow. what a statement. It’s true. He said, “I can buy presents for my friends any day of the year; I can have family dinners anytime, but how bout let’s celebrate Jesus this year?”

Now, I’m not sure if he will. But those are the exact feelings I’m kinda getting….

What do you feel about the Christmas season?

One thought on “christmas!

  1. “Times of ignorance God wink at” Act 17:30

    REASONS WHY WE SHOULD NOT CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS
    1.December 25 is NOT the birthday of Jesus Christ, it is the birthday of the Roman sun god and this is a polluted pagan feast full of lawlessness, drunkenness, nakedness and partying. To celebrate this day means we are participating in this polluted festival.
    2.Jesus Christ did not command us to celebrate His birth with any programmes or festivals but to remember HOW HE SUFFER AND DIED FOR US SO THST WE CAN FOLLOW HIS EXAMPLE
    3.Christmas was never celebrated by the church in the first 400 years of Christianity as they obeyed the Lord in not celebrating it and also God had not allow anyone to know the exact time of the Saviour’s birth. It was added in by the Roman Catholic Church who calls Christmas “Christ Mass.”
    4.The Roman Catholic Church wanted power and large numbers of people to be converted, so they allowed thousands of pagans to keep their pagan practices, including celebrating the birthday to their sun god. This is why Christmas is celebrated only 400 years later when Roman Catholism polluted true Christian’s beliefs.
    5.The Romans use Dec 25, the birthday of their sun god to torture Jews
    6.The spirit behind Christmas is satanic and deceptive- this is why the whole world is swept into celebrating Christmas. They even wish one another “X Mas,” because they do not want the word ‘Christ’ in it.
    7.If we continue on this pollution, we will lose God’s power and blessings.
    8.Polluted worship is the ‘sin of Jeroboam’ 1 King 12:32 who retain all the outward trapping of worshipping Jehovah but was living in rebellion and pollution.

    RIGHT WAYS TO USE THE HOLIDAY SEASON GIVEN TO US

    1.If people call on us, USE THE TIME AND OPPURTUNITY TO WITNESS TO THEM, TO ENCOURAGE THEIR FAITH WITH YOUR TESTIMONIES AND TO TELL THEM THE TRUTH. Play a Christian VCD. Pray with them.
    2.Take advantage of cheap sales, special concession from shops etc. To buy gifts for the poor and send your extra bonus to needy ministries, not store gifts to yourself and one another.
    3.Use the holiday season to visit people in homes, in prisons, and hospitals. Not go on holidays for your own family.
    4.Use Dec 25 for prayers and pray for
    •God’s forgiveness on His people for not willing to obey and be separated from pagan ways all throughout church history (coming out of the pollution of Christmas).
    •The persecuted church who is suffering and dying in prison.
    •Christians who are sick, in bondage and backslidden from God.
    •Our unsaved loved ones.
