Welcome to our website
remember the first time someone called Christmas a "pagan
holiday." I was deeply angered, that anyone could think
such a terrible thing! Wasn’t our Lord Jesus born on Christmas
day? How could they think Christmas was started by the pagans?
since that time years ago, I have changed my mind completely
about Christmas, and I now agree whole heartedly with this couple
that called Christmas a "pagan holiday." And, as these
people deeply angered me back then, I know for a fact that I
too will anger many by my beliefs. But, since I have researched
the subject of Christmas, and know what the Bible states, and
what Jesus states, I can no longer "celebrate Christmas."
In fact, it now deeply offends me because in my heart, the Holy
Spirit has convinced me it is a sin.
know there will be many who pick up this article, that will never
finish it, because they FEEL that I am wrong! All I ask, is
that you read with an open mind and let God lead you, let God
discern for you if I am speaking Truth or not.
let me say that the virgin birth of our Lord Jesus is a vital
necessity to the Gospel of Christ. I fully believe in it and
I would never diminish its importance in any way. It is a sound
Biblical doctrine as is His death, resurrection and ascension;
but NO where in God’s Word does it say anything about Christmas;
NO where does it say we are to celebrate the birth of Christ.
There are only two birthday celebrations mentioned in the Bible
and BOTH are connected with murder (Genesis 40:20-22; Matthew
Jesus had wanted us to celebrate His birth, He most certainly
would have told us; but, He did not say to do so. We are told
to "remember" His death, and each time we receive
communion, we can celebrate His sacrificial death for us; but NOWHERE does
Jesus tell us to celebrate His Birth. 1 Cor. 11:24-25 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which
is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.  After the same manner also he took the cup,
when he had supped, saying, This
cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as
ye drink it, in remembrance of me. [KJV]
Bible is God’s Word to mankind. In its pages, it holds all we
need to know about how we should live in this brief life on
Earth. It tells us what we should do and what we should not
do. If we read anything else into it, such as celebrating Christmas,
we are adding to it. No person has the right to change God’s
Word (Deut. 4:2; 12:32; Prov.30:5-6; Rev. 22:18-19).
Jesus really born on December 25? Luke
2:7-15 And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger;
because there was no room for them in the inn.  And there
were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping
watch over their flock by night. 
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory
of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I
bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour,
which is Christ the Lord.  And this shall be a sign unto
you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying
in a manger.  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude
of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,  Glory to
God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from
them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us
now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which
is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
[KJV] The month of December is the middle of the rainy season
where Jesus was born, and to my knowledge all the sheep were
kept in the folds at that time of the year. The shepherds kept
the sheep in pens normally from October until April each year.
So, IF this is true, Jesus could NOT have been born in December
because the shepherds would not have been in the fields at night
2:1-3 And it came to pass in those days, that
there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world
should be taxed.  (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius
was governor of Syria.)  And all went to be taxed, every
one into his own city. [KJV] This is yet another
reason Jesus could not have been born in December. The ruler
of Rome would not have set a date to be taxed in the middle
of winter, for travel would have been very difficult and some
could not have made it. He would have set a date when weather
permitted so everyone could be taxed. Jesus told of the hardships
of travel in winter. Matthew 24:19-20 And
woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck
in those days!  But pray ye that your flight be not in the
winter, neither on the sabbath day: [KJV]
it is NOT important exactly when Jesus was born. What is important
is that He was born, and He then GREW UP into a Man, who then
died for our sins. We do NOT worship
a tiny, helpless baby lying in a manger, we worship a grown
Man, a risen and exalted Saviour, Christ Jesus our Lord.
may say as I once did, that it doesn’t matter WHEN Jesus was born, we will just celebrate His birth on Christmas
day. But. let's go a little further.
did Christmas originate? With God? NO! NOT with God! It
started with the sun worshippers way back in the time of Nimrod
and the tower of Babel. Was that of God? NO! That was an utter
abomination to our Almighty God (Genesis 11:1-9). Christmas
was actually celebrated thousands of years before Jesus
was even born! And it was on December 25th that it was celebrated.
They celebrated the birthday of the sun god, Tammuz on that
day. It was, and it still is IDOLATRY!
virgin birth of Jesus is indeed a blessed and holy fact, but
the celebration of Christmas is an ungodly and sinful thing.
AND THE WORLD
John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the
things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the
love of the Father is not in him. [KJV] Worldly
customs and traditions of Christmas draws the heart away from
God. When love of the world predominates, our love of God decays.
Unless victory over the world is begun in our heart, we have
no root in ourselves, and we will fall away. Vanities are very
alluring, and will corrupt our hearts, without constant watching
3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things
on the earth. [KJV]
When we "set our minds on things above" we look at
life from God’s perspective and seek His will and desires. The
more we consider the world around us as God does, the more we
will live in harmony with Him. We must not become attached to
temporary customs and traditions, but consider instead eternity
12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be
ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove
what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. [KJV] We are not to copy the behavior and customs of this world, but
let God’s Spirit transform us into a new person by changing
the way we think. Then, and only then, will we know what God
really wants us to do, and then and only then will we know how
good and pleasing and perfect His will really is. It is only
when the Holy Spirit renews us, reeducates us, and redirects
our minds that we will see the Truth as God sees it.
are millions of non-Christians (unbelievers) around the world
who celebrate Christmas. Doesn’t this
seem strange to you? IF Christmas is a Christian holiday, why do all these unbelievers,
who hate Christ and what He stands for, celebrate His supposed
birth? There are people in the world who know nothing of the
Bible or Jesus, yet they celebrate Christmas. IF December 25th were the birthday of God’s only begotten
Son, Jesus the Christ, do you honestly think the world would
have anything to do with it? NO! Absolutely Not!
16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are
they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your
hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination
in the sight of God. [KJV]
This is a solemn warning from our Lord. We CANNOT serve God
and go along with idolatrous customs of the world. There are
many things that are considered of great value by people, yet
they are worth nothing in God's eyes; and the more I know of
Christmas, the more I know God is really angered with it.
you are honest with yourself, you must admit that Christmas
is NOT of God, but is an idol. The world simply adores Christmas,
but it hates Christ! Which does the world "esteem"
(reverence) Christ? OR Christmas??? The world reverences Christmas,
are so many unscriptural traditions connected with Christmas. Exchanging gifts has
absolutely NOTHING to do with the birth of Christ. Who
received gifts when Jesus was born? The Baby Jesus, that’s who!
The wise men gave gifts to Jesus because it was a custom in
that area to give gifts to a king. The wise men brought gifts
because Jesus was born to be the King of the Jews. They were
NOT birthday gifts. The wise men didn’t visit Jesus until He
was about two years old (Matthew 2:16). The shepherds visited
Him at His birth, but the wise men did it about 2 years later.
an idolatrous custom. Jeremiah 10:3-4 For the
customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of
the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with
nails and with hammers, that it move not. [KJV]
God does NOT want His children to learn the way of the heathen
"green tree" is mentioned many times in the
Old Testament, and EVERY time
it is connected with idolatry (Deut.12:2; 1 Kings 14:23; 2 Kings
16:4; 17:10; 2 Chron. 28:4; Jer.2:20; 3:6, 13; Eze.6:13; 17:24;
20:47). There is NO reason whatsoever in the Word of God for
a Christmas tree! I’m sure there are many Christians who think
they are honoring Jesus by having a beautiful tree; but in fact,
they are dishonoring our Lord!
are instead honoring a false god in the pagan festival of Christmas.
know there will be those who say "I don’t worship Christmas
or the Christmas tree." IF they are not idols to you, then
GIVE THEM UP!
about the lies about Santa
you are lying to your children when you tell them about Santa
Claus! We should teach our children the Truth about Christmas.
We should never lie to them or any one else (Eph.4:25). Children
taught about Santa Claus could well grow up believing that Christ
too is a fairy tale, just as is Santa Claus.
4:9-11 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are
known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements,
whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?  Ye observe
days, and months, and times, and years.  I am afraid of
you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain. [KJV]
Once you become a child of God by belief in Jesus (John 1:12-13),
why do you want to become slaves all over again, by paying special
attention to certain days, months, seasons, and years. God does
not want us to "observe" any holy days in this dispensation
of grace in which we now live.
is good only for stores to make money and people to party. Christmas
is NOT in the Bible! There should be NO special
holy days for true believers. God’s will and desire for us is
that we worship and serve Him 365 days a year!
again Christians should have no superstitions
of times or seasons, therefore the annual event of Christmas
should not be celebrated by us. Even though the majority of
the world goes along, hog-wild for Christmas and its decorated
trees, gift swapping, Santa Claus and wild parties; God’s children
should not participate in this pagan tradition.
Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and
be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing;
and I will receive you, [KJV]
God considers Christmas "unclean." The more I study
God’s Word, the more I know that Christmas is an abomination
to Him. At one time I did not think so. I thought Christmas
was a most worshipful time of the year; but when you truly desire
to know the Truth (Matthew 5:6), God will see to it that you
are enlightened. But there are those (many) who simply do not
want to know the Truth, and if that is the case with you, the
Holy Spirit cannot persuade you that Christmas is wrong in God’s
eyes. It took me a while to finally admit that God’s Word is
right and Truth, and I was WRONG. Now when I look back, I wonder
what took me so long; for the Truth was right there in front
of me the whole time. I simply did not want to give up the custom
and tradition of Christmas.
pagan history of Christmas has always been known by those who
truly wanted to know. In 1644 Parliament declared Christmas
to be unlawful and it was canceled. Puritans considered Christmas
to be the work of Satan. At one time in early America, Christmas
was illegal, but somehow, down through the years, it crept back
in and is now a holiday for the entire world.
Cor. 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate,
saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will
receive you, [KJV] If we celebrate Christmas,
we are disobeying Almighty God, for we are not coming out from
15:18-19 If the world
hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:
but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out
of the world, therefore the world hateth you. [KJV]
These words of Jesus makes me feel so alone at times, because
I know I am one of the extreme "few" who does not observe Christmas. The world once hated Jesus
too, so I consider myself in the best of company! If I do not
take my stand with Christ and speak out the Truth, knowing what
I know about Christmas, I am not worthy of Him.
