Why not do some research about Christmas? At one time, church authorities fought “tooth and nail against [the] relics of heathenism,” says the book Christmas Customs and Traditions—Their History and Significance. But in time, church leaders became more eager to fill pews than teach truth. Hence, they began to “wink at” those pagan practices. Later they embraced them.I don't think if you celebrate Christmas and put up a Christmas tree I'm a pagan I don't worship these things I don't pray or bow to them I read the story of Jesus birth to my family I know he wasn't born on dec 25 but I don't know when he was born but I know who I worship and honor and as far as what book or webs age I read that from are you kidding me I wouldn't put my all being on the line without doing some research
‘What you sow you reap,’ the Bible says.(Galatians 6:7) After sowing their fields with the seeds of paganism, the churches should not be surprised that “weeds” proliferate. A celebration allegedly honoring the birth of Jesus becomes an excuse for drunkenness and revelry, the shopping mall becomes more popular than the church, families go deeply into debt buying presents, and children confuse myth with reality and Santa Claus with Jesus Christ. Yes, for good reason, God said:“Quit touching the unclean thing.”(2 Corinthians 6:17)
Jesus’ followers, held no commemoration of Christ’s birthday at all—not on December 25! And this held true until about the middle of the fourth century.
Origen, a third-century historian, wrote that “of all the holy people in the Scriptures, no one is recorded to have kept a ... birthday. It is only sinners (like Pharaoh and Herod) who make great rejoicings over the day on which they were born.”(Genesis 40:20-23; Mark 6:21-28)
According to McClintock and Strong’s Cyclopedia, Jews of Bible times “regarded birthday celebrations as parts of idolatrous worship.”
Could Christ be honored by festivals originally designed for mythical gods and idolatrous worship?
The Bible answers:“Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For ... what agreement does God’s temple have with idols?”(2 Corinthians 6:14-16) Dressing idolatrous festivals with a Christian name does not make them acquire harmony with Christ.
