""When the LORD your God goes ahead of you and destroys the nations and you drive them out and live in their land, do not fall into the trap of following their customs and worshiping their gods. Do not inquire about their gods, saying,'How do these nations worship their gods? I want to follow their example.' You must not worship the LORD your God the way the other nations worship their gods, for they perform for their gods every detestable act that the LORD hates." Deuteronomy 12:29-31

Nimrod, Tammuz, and Semiramis are the reason for the season.

God's professed people are living out the altar of the golden calf experience all over again, thinking they are doing God a service.

Nobody knows when Jesus of Nazareth was born. That's the problem. It is not that we should not celebrate the birth of Immanuel, but how should we express the joy of His Advent? And when?

E way is easy to determine. But the time is lost in the dust of history. Perhaps the best solution would be to do so each Sabbath day.

Giving gifts under compulsion and not love? Give gifts all year because you want to not on December 25th to celebrate Jesus birthday? No disciples ever celebrated birthdays only Pharaoh and Herod and neither celebration shed a good light since all Scripture is important (2tim 3:16,17) don't look past what the Bible is trying to teach

Instead, look into the origin of Christmas it is actually the celebration of saturnailia and still most of the tradition is present just change the Mae to Christmas and adapt to pagan traditions... this was done to get members in the churches but is it right? You decide...

bottom line is if God wanted us making a special celebration of Christ's birth day annually He'd have let us know when it was.
We can't even agree on what day of the year He was crucified or the year itself!

Let's see,
It's called a 'holiday' and 'Christ-mas', and mas (Mass) means basically a church service
And when exactly did Christ and the apostles attend church?
Every week on the Sabbath
'holiday' is from the French meaning holy day
Hence, the only Holy Day all Christians should acknowledge is the weekly Sabbath

The man in Rome to be specific - Christmas is a Catholic holiday!

One reason the Protestant Puritans were driven out of England by King James and the Church of England was their rejection of these Catholic holidays. When the KJV 1611 was published inside the front cover still today you will find a calender added with all these romish holidays; christmas, easter and even halloween. The Puritans then founded the colonies with the same laws against Christmas. Apparently many of the laws remained in law in the states all the way until the Civil War, 1865. It's believable considering the way the Mormons were driven out of Missouri just before the Civil War.

• When Christmas Was Illegal

"In 1836, Alabama became the first state to make Christmas a legal holiday. Other states followed suit; even Massachusetts legalized Christmas in 1856, almost 200 years after its ban. But the last state, Oklahoma, did not join in until 1907."

www.chesebro.net/out_xmas.shtml

or wikipedia also records the puritan laws.

Putting the Pope back in Christmas!

Santa was based on the Catholic bishop, St Nicholas. When first introduced to the USA he even had the bishop's mitre not the Santa hat we see today.

birdmaniac, and keep your own traditions and SDA's love to have it so.

Give the text that it is a commandment of God there are those that he sats to do until he comes though. Do you think God forgot to mention about the celebration of his birth a Pagan holiday With SANTA>SATAN, Do you think that if you say you leave SANTA out of it that it is religious.

Ignorant you have never learned ALL of the history about all the traditions of the tree, hot cross buns, bulbs on the tree the yule log etc.

bIRD- You don't know about these are you confessing. Ignorance is BLISS?

DO YOU HAVE ANY REVERENCE OR TO GIVE GLORY FOR THE TRUE GODS OF CREATION.

LEARNED TO BE COMICAL AND NON SPIRITUAL NOT WALKING IN THE SPIRIT BUT IN THE FLESH OF TV AND HILARITY OF SPENDING QUALITY TIME WITH SITCOMS?

THAT IS WHY YOU HATE THE SABBATH SO MUCH IT WOULD REQUIRE TO LEAVE SELFISH SELF-CENTERED ENTERTAINMENT OFF OUT OF YOUR LIFE FOR THE 4TH COMMANDMENT. THAT'S OF YOUR EVANGELICAL ECUMENICAL WALK.
DO YOU LOVE TO CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN AND VALENTINES DAY ALSO?

ONCE YOU WALK AWAY FROM GOD YOUR MOST LIKELY TO STAT ON THE ERRONEOUS PATH.

When Jesus was born as a baby in Bethlehem the Bible says the people were in darkeness. Some remain in that darkness to this day. If Angels rejoiced surlely redeemed men and women can rejoice and celebrate the incarnation of our LOrd.
