Christmas

There are several modern-day Gnostics who, in the name of Christ, seek to dissuade us from celebrating the birth of Jesus each December. They go to great lengths to enlighten us regarding the pagan associations of the winter solstice, the worship of Druid gods, and idolatry related to evergreen trees. They chide us, saying we are somehow playing into Satan’s insidious scheme by honoring the birth of Christ with our Christmas traditions. Don’t believe it. This old “guilt-by-association” argument condemning our celebrations of Christ must be examined from a biblical perspective (See Rom.14:1-6; 1Cor.5:9-10; 1Cor.8:4-6; 1Cor.10:25-30). To condemn our Christ-honoring praise for the incarnation each December because of some ancient pagan associations is as ludicrous as disallowing Sunday worship because “Sunday” was initially designated for the worship of “Sol” the Sun god. Historically Christians have rightly redeemed certain days, words and places for the worship of Jesus Christ. As Paul wrote when facing the critics in Corinth “Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, for ‘The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it’” (1Cor.10:25-26). So let us utilize all we can to bring glory, honor and praise to God for the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. The issue is not so much as to celebrate the birth of our savior. My concern is why in the bible does in not state this if we were to celebrate this then why was it not only not stated but his birthdate never mentioned? The flying raindeer that do not exist and a man with magical powers sound like witchcraft. Not to mention santa claus so closely resembles a mispelled “satans claws” which would seem to fit this celebration which at current has no incling at all of the birth of our dear savior Jesus. Its all about money, Idolitry and self gratification. The actual celebration yes but the way it is now? No Sir the bible is very clear on this issue. Dont Do It. !
