For Christians who don’t celebrate Christmas – some things to consider (revised)

Lord, bless me with the same gracious, and faithful, attitude as Maria when exposing the lie of X Mass to the brethren!

Reality

The assumption that Christmas is a Christian holiday is nearly universal.

It is an institution, an extraordinary cultural phenomenon, and it is promoted by both believers and those who don’t believe.

Rightly or wrongly, it is also seen as a time when people are more open to the Gospel, so that it has the vote of those whose chief desire is to reach the lost for Jesus Christ.

In other words, Christmas is HUGE, and while we need to warn other Christians about its origins and practices, we need to realize that nothing is going to change unless it is God’s good pleasure.

Some thoughts and a little advice

Unless people are pressuring you to participate, you can pay almost no attention to it except at certain times.

    • I agree, Maria, that more Christians are seeing the truth behind the Christo=pagan X Mass and Easter. At the same time I’m seeing more “Christians” get terribly rude when confronted by the truth. I pray that it is because they are being convicted. I’m so very glad that its God’s job to bring them into the truth while I am just to declare it. Hoo boy! How tough it would be if we had to do God’s job! 🙂

      I’m glad you found our blog, too! “Cause then I was able to check out your blog and Follow! God bless you, Maria, in all that you do for His Kingdom, by His power and for His glory! amen~

      • Truly, I did read all that you said though I didn’t respond to it.
        Yes, sometimes people are under conviction. I had a Christian who loves Christmas so much, and who is convinced that she has determined by God’s Word that Jesus was born on the 25th of December exactly, who kept commenting that I was going all wrong and being influenced by cults. This was a test for me to respond in the right way.
        Yes, I hope it’s true that people are coming to understand these things better. There is a lot on YouTube about such things, but whether this actually translates into a growth in true understanding and being rooted in the truth of God’s Word, I don’t know. Jesus said that the gates of hell would not prevail against His church, so He will take care of this issue too.
