How are you treating Jesus? Are you in bondage?

People will say they have Christian liberty to celebrate this abominable man-made “holy” day. But that means they would make Paul say it is OK to christianize paganism! The very same tree-in-house yule tide season celebration stems from its root of Babylonian false messiah worship that pre-dated Christ’s incarnation. The Israelites were judged for worshiping God in the same manner as the heathen did their gods and Paul, knowing this, would never condone we do the same as they did! Why do we lower Christ down to the same status as the false gods by putting His birth on their birth date? God is to be treated as holy, set apart, unlike the worldly heathen.

How many Christians say that they know of the pagan roots of Christ Mass then go headlong into its celebration never minding how God hates it and that they are disobeying His Word from the Jerusalem Council?! It is fornication to Him! This is not a matter of Christian liberty but of obedience. How can one worship God through disobedience? The only ones who want to kick against the goads on this issue are those who worship the season more than God. I challenge my brothers and sisters to not celebrate the pagan/papist/traditions of men even once to be sure it is not a thing they are in bondage to or compelled by men to celebrate.

Christ’s birth was, and is crucial. Its the incarnation, the one time only and only unique birth event, which the angels were celebrating. Salvation has come to the world! \o/ Did you know that Jews of Jesus’ day did not celebrate birthdays? Not even bar/bat mitzvahs (those are new innovations)! That is why we do not see any apostle celebrating the birthday of Christ Jesus. But, the Jewish-pagans of His day did celebrate birthdays – Herod was of Judaism but he was also enamored with the Roman culture as evidenced in the celebrating of his birthday. He was a Jew in name only. He was also an Idumean, aka, an Edomite, with that wicked Haman in his ancestry.

Has the Christ Mass celebration been changed from pagan to Christian lawfully? No. We do not see anywhere in Scripture where God has said to steer clear of paganism until a certain amount of time has passed. This pre-Christ yule-tide season where the decorated tree-in-house tradition comes from is, in our day, a celebration of pagan Wiccans who adopted the holiday from the sun worshiping Druids. We are to keep from even the appearance of evil yet we look just like the Wiccans when we practice their decorated tree-in-house tradition. Putting Christ’s name on that which God hates is an evil we need to beware of if we love Christ Jesus. God warned the Israelites not to worship Him in the same manner as the heathen do their gods and we do not see a lifting of that command in the New Testament but instead see what the pagans did with their books in Acts 19:19. Its what we must do with our christo-pagan traditions and things. Hard to do? Yes! And yet easy when you love the Lord Jesus Christ and want to please Him in all of your ways.

Its a huge error to say that the Incarnation is the Christ Mass story. It is not and never has been except it being forced upon Christ by men. We should not have even the appearance of evil yet one has to look good and hard to see any difference between a Wiccan’s holiday decor and the Christian’s…

I’m glad I can daily sing praises to God for sending us His Son and need no special day to reflect on it and celebrate it. And, what a burden removed by not having to observe the day as the heathen do with decorated trees and home. Set free from having to buy gifts, too. I’m also grateful that God opened my eyes to the lies of this season so that I can now worship Him in spirit and in truth.

May God open the eyes of His children and call them out of this iniquitous tradition of men/pagan/papist practice into a pure worship of Him in spirit and in truth, amen!

“In keeping, after a religious sort, a day that has no authority but man’s, we are paying homage to that authority; we are bowing down, in the very act of our observance of the day as part of worship, not to Christ, who has not appointed it, but to the Church, which has. We are keeping the season holy, not to God, but to man.” ~ from the book, The Church of Christ by James Bannerman
