Christmas: What's it all about?

One person told me, "It is not about trees, ornaments, lights and even presents. It is about Love."

Well, I have to agree!! It's all about LOVE!! Love of Tradition! While I realize that the majority celebrate Christmas as an expression of love for Christ, the love of tradition is also a huge factor!

IF Christmas isn't about trees, or lights or ornaments... or even presents, then what is it all about? Why are those things even included?

Think about it!

WHY are those things ALWAYS extant in the holiday observance, and WHY is it never celebrated without them? IF it's all about LOVE, then why not find another WAY to celebrate that LOVE, without attempting to worship Him with all those heathen customs and accoutrements?

Why not pick another day, other than the Winter Solstice ?

Why not worship and honor Christ WITHOUT using the very things that He warned His people NOT TO LEARN, and who were then punished when they did not obey? If, in truth, it is not about those things, WHY NOT DELETE them from the celebration, and be done with it?

Why not stand up and PREACH AGAINST those things that God clearly HATES and calls abominations??

God is LOVE

Some say, "God is Love, and we are called to express that Love. Christmas is a reminder of the great Love that God has shown us in giving us the gift of His Son."

I agree. God IS LOVE! But what does "Christmas" have to do with it??

HOW are the pagan customs of 'christmas', a reminder of that?? What is it about the holiday that reminds ANYONE about the gift of His Son? Is it the mistletoe? How about the chestnuts roasting on an open fire?? Jingle Bells? Exchanging gifts? Santa Claus? Rocking Around the Christmas Tree?

WHY does the 'reminder of the great love God has shown us' have to be infested with all those PAGAN rituals??

Why can't TRUE followers of Christ remember what the Father did for us without all that 'baggage'?

Most people KNOW that it isn't really His Birthday, so why do they do it?

Truth is, for the most part, they are just following the crowd like sheep following a shepherd .. just doing what looks and feels good... and yes, they may have an earnest and sincere desire to worship Christ and to honor Him, but they are being led directly into VAIN worship.

Have you read the scripture that says,

Mt 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Tell me, do you believe that statement? Is it TRUTH?

 

"Christmas is a reminder of the great Love that God has shown us in giving us the gift of His Son."

That's what the majority would like for it to be... but it isn't!

It is what it is, but it isn't 'Christian', and it isn't 'expressing love for Christ'... just the opposite!

It is people, doing what they want to do, and calling it "Christian."

I realize that these things are offensive, but the TRUTH is often offensive to those who have been taught to think otherwise.

 

Christmas: What it's REALLY all about.??

It's all about the continued deception of sincere people who truly want to worship the True God, but whose worship is being diverted, polluted and nullified!

After all is said and done, that worship becomes VAIN and useless.

And "vain and useless worship"... isn't 'worship' at all!

 

That is TRULY the OLD, OLD STORY, and I'm sticking to it!

 

Yours for TRUE worship!

 

Ben
