What Fellowship Hath Christ and Belial?

by Douglas W. Comin

An examination of the religious celebration of Christmas in light of the Scriptural duty of separation and the Regulative Principle of worship. Below is a quote from the article.

“The real meaning of Christmas is compromise – a sinful fusion between the worship of the true God and the worship of the pagan world that was instituted by a church which was not prepared to cast down the idols of the nations and burn the Asherah poles – or Yule logs – and enforce the pure worship of the God of the Bible. We must not join with them. We must not follow in the ways of Jeroboam, son of Nebat. We must not be yoked together with unbelievers. Let us reclaim instead the glory and delight of the Lord’s Holy Day and learn to call the Sabbath a delight. Let us rejoice together in the precious sacrament which Jesus has given to His Church as a celebration of His life, death, and resurrection. And in doing these things we are promised a blessing from God: “Therefore, come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing and I will receive you and you will be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty. Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.”

  1. Also FTA: If we are unwilling to lay our personal views on the table beside an open Bible, then we are indicating more than we may think about our openess to conform our lives to the teaching of Scripture.

    • If there is no biblical precedent for christianizing pagan holidays and celebrating them then all of the scripture quoting concerning Christian liberty is in vain. Or do you believe Paul would find delight in christianizing pagan traditions and artifacts? If so, then why didn’t he let us know for our edification on the matter?
