True SDAs do NOT.

True SDAs realize that Christmas & Easter is pure Lucifer worship.

So, acknowledging/celebrating the birth and resurrection of our Savior is worshiping Satan???????

And I have to say, some SDA churches do acknowledge those celebrations. Our nondenominational church rents the local SDA church for our Sunday services, and just after Thanksgiving the church is decorated with Christmas trees (by the Adventists), and they (the SDA's) have a very involved large-scale pageant (both at Christmastime and at Easter) which is presented multiple times and attended by many in the community.

Is it a wonder that of the current members, less than one in one hundred will be saved?

Grams, you have to realize that not all who shout, "Three angels' messages! Three angels' messages!" are SDA; but only those who refuse the mark of the beast.
Christmas is a pagan holiday; and so is Sunday.
Sunday isn't a holiday.

I dont think many SDA's will admit they celebrate Xmas, because they can no longer condemn Christians for Sunday worship since the RCC brought along Christmas and Easter along with Sunday worship according to them.

Come on SDA's we are waiting to hear from you and what you do for Christmas.

SDA's are pretty silent on this one. Im sure they do, but like you said, they are doing the same RCC activity they claim Christian do every Sunday and have nothing to say.

I know this topic doesnt involve condemning a Christian to hell for Sunday worship, but come SDA's we want to know if you celebrate Christmas or not.

Dear Ant:

My observation is that there are very few baptized members of the SDA church who post here very much. I post at times and follow some of the threads and post when I feel the need.

First of all Seventh Day Adventists do recognize that Dec. 25th. is not when Christ was born. Nothing new there... Some Adventists who are in a very small minority shun the day because of its origins. I do not fault them in any way. The Bible tells us to be convinced in our own minds. Other Adventist's who are likely in the majority at least in North America celebrate Christmas pretty much the same way most other Christians do. The cautions that we need to look out for are simple... we need to do whatever we do as unto the Lord. If we get caught up with giving and getting and food and fun and festiveties then we have probably missed the whole point of Christmas which is Christ Himself. Our personal relationship with Him is the most precious gift that any of us could have. If our Christmas activities tend to lead us away from that then what have we gained? Before I was a Christian I celebrated Christmas for all the wrong reasons... let us remember that none of us are immune to missing the whole point of Christmas if it become more about the gifts... than the giver of every good and perfect gift.

Here is the point. None of us know exactly when
Jesus was born so does that mean we never celebrate
the Birth of Our Lord? I don't see that it really matters . Christmas always points others to Jesus.
Christmas makes people think about Jesus. So it is
a good thing not bad.

I for one have always had a wonderful time with my
family. My husband who Is Jewish and of the family
of "Hur" ( See Exodus ) loves Christmas. In fact his whole family celebrates Christmas.

I think it is grate. know one I know hates Christmas.

There is no such things as other Gods!!!!!
God no where in the bible said he created other Gods for people to choose from. There may be man made idols, but there is no such things as OTHER GODS!!!

Christians dont celebrate a made up sun god on Xmas either.

Why does Scripture infuriate you?

Read the Word. Obey the Word. End of story.(Or you can choose to rationalize away the keeping of Christmas all the way to the lake of fire.)

Your choice.
