IF YOU’RE A ‘CHRISTIAN’ JUSTIFYING THE OBSERVATION OF PAGAN CHRISTMAS BY QUOTING ROMANS 14:5-6 . . . THIS ONE’S FOR YOU —


The scripture condemns such practices as Christmas. Jeremiah 10:2,3 tell us to “learn not the way of the heathen” and that “the customs of the people are vain.” In Matthew 15:9 Jesus explains that men worship Him in vain, “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” In Colossians 2:8 we are told to beware lest someone should spoil us “through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of men, after the rudiments of the world.” I Timothy 1:4 instructs us to “neither give heed to fables … which minister questions.”

  1. I pray more start seeing that this information is not to judge their hearts but to share the truth.
    The Good Lord also reminds us that our hearts are deceitful…
    Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Another question that has come to me is IF people are observing this as the birth of the Messiah- why are they buying people gifts?

    My heart was far from the Lord in what I perceived to be an observation of the birth of the Messiah. I am very very thankful that the Lord has opened my eyes to His truth- many do not seek it- they just assume ( I have done that, too ☹️)- with information literally right st our fingertips ( THE BIBLE) we have no excuse to continue in our ignorance.
    I say this with 💕

  2. I guess I have first a statement and then questions. Ellen and I have since committed to follow Christ, placed the Christmas Day focus on the story of His birth. Over time we learned that His the celebration by the world was paganism. The true birth of Christ was Sukkot in the fall when the sheep were grazing in the fields. We learned this from our messianic Jewish brethren. So to the questions: why is the world attempting to remove Christ from this celebration? When else is this witness better made to prick the world’s conscience? Are the Christ Mass carols not a witness to the lost? If God is in complete control (ruling through His Church) as you believe why do you challenge what is happening in the church at Christmas? These are just some of my questions.

    • Dear faithonthefarm, thanks again for adding to the discussion.

      Dave Winger, the teacher who made the video, obviously cares that people receive sound teaching but I have problems with his teaching, especially his nonchalance. He stated,

      “I don’t personally have a problem with re-purposing a pagan day.”

      He also doesn’t have a problem with Christians introducing their children to the legend of Santa Claus and sort of playing with them about this fictional character. David instructs his listeners to simply center the celebration – whatever you do – around the Lord Jesus Christ.

      He undercuts the understanding that pagans regularly celebrated various feasts at this time of year. He said,

      “We don’t have a pre-establish ‘something else’ [pagan festival] that’s being replaced [by Christmas].”

      He repeats the legend that Martin Luther originated the Christmas tree after a walking in the woods and seeing the stars through the trees’ boughs. Martin Luther preached on the Incarnation at this time of year as his duty but like other Reformers was trying to move away from the Catholic feasts which were frought with temptations.

      For all his hard work on the subject, David Winger neglects to mention that the origin of the English day for this celebration is the ‘Christ Mass’. As Protestants we need to know this and be wary.

  3. May I add , Maria, that I have been Born Again- spiritually- and I have learned that once a person is born again -the way that Jesus says we must be -we have been blessed with new spiritual ears- eyes and a mouth-things that we partook in when we were of the world just aren’t the same when we try to participate in them 🙏🏻 That is how it has been for me ❤️❤️❤️ Praise the Lord!
