UNPOPULAR TRUTH ABOUT CHRISTMAS



Almost all in the Christendom celebrate Christmas, send presents and wish usual " Merry Christmas ", taking cheerfully for experience that that must be correct. Actually, it became a so appreciated tradition that we avoid wondering about its origin, origin which we can find in encyclopedias and histories not slanted by the church. God's Word does not justify either its annual celebration, but condemns austerely in Galatians 4:10,11: " Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labor in vain ". So the observance itself, as it is pious or rebellious, is condemned.



Galatians 4:10-11

10 You observe [particular] days and months and seasons and years!

11 I am alarmed [about you], lest I have labored among and over you to no purpose and in vain. AMP



The blessed Savior did not come to see to it that His birth (...) is popularized by the world. ... " that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. (1 Timothy 1:15) " Christ died for the ungodly ". (Romans 5:6)



1 Timothy 1:15

15 The saying is sure and true and worthy of full and universal acceptance, that Christ Jesus (the Messiah) came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am foremost. AMP

Romans 5:6

6 While we were yet in weakness [powerless to help ourselves], at the fitting time Christ died for (in behalf of) the ungodly. AMP



Nobody knows when the Christ was born.

Clément, in the second century, considered as "superstitious" the speculations as for date.

Origène, in A.D. 245, made a fool of the idea and said that it was a sin. The church of Rome, in the fifth century, records: " no certainty existed ".

In the New International Encyclopedia, we find: " we do not know exactly when it has origin... almost certain that December 25 th cannot be the date.

The New Catholic Encyclopedia reports: " however incomprehensible it can appear, the date of birthday of the Christ is unknown ". (Vol. 3, p. 655)

The origin of Christmas

In the Nelson's Encyclopedia, it is said that December 25 th was " of heathen origin, otherwise sun... The Saturnalia of Romans preceded it ".

" The day of the ancient holiday of Sol-Invictus (to celebrate the birth of the god-sun). ( Americana Encyclopedia)

" Saturnalia (a holiday of enjoyment without restraint)... The Christmas was fixed at the same time ". Mr. de Beugnot: History of the Destruction of the Paganism in West, Vol. 2, p. 265.

" The church... returning to the paganism... wishing more festivities, added Christian names to heathen holidays ... The church established Christian festivities, so named, to replace heathen... so paganizing the Christendom to satisfy their carnal thoughts ".

Augustine tells that the people were so determined to have their holidays, that the clergy pretended to see nothing!

The tradition of the ancients (Matthew 15:2)


Matthew 15:2

2 Why do Your disciples transgress and violate the rules handed down by the elders of the past? For they do not practice [ceremonially] washing their hands before they eat. AMP



So the tradition emanating of the " god of this world " (2 Corinthians 4:4), appeared from the paganism, was transplanted in the Christendom by fathers unfaithful predecessors, and was developed by the church of Rome, " Babylon the great, the mother of the abominations " (Revelation 17:5). As of children led to believe in Santa Claus (***not sure about the translation here***), the Christendom was deceived by her " blind persons, drivers of blind persons ". (Matthew 15:14)



2 Corinthians 4:4

4 For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers' minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God. AMP

Revelation 17:5

5 And on her forehead there was inscribed a name of mystery [with a secret symbolic meaning]: Babylon the great, the mother of prostitutes (idolatresses) and of the filth and atrocities and abominations of the earth. AMP


Matthew 15:14

14 Let them alone and disregard them; they are blind guides and teachers. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a ditch. AMP



Do not all this break the heart of shame and do not bring us to sigh and to cry for all the abominations practiced in the Laodicean Christendom in dishonor for the Name of our blessed Savior? (Psalms 119:158; Jeremiah 15:15-17; Ezekiel 9:4; Philippians 3:18-19). How can we have part in such a joke? How will it appear to the throne of Christ's judgment?
