Observing Christmas?

Hi M____,

The reason you see no scripture for celebrating Christmas is because it isn’t in the scriptures. Christmas is a pagan holiday with the name of Christ attached to it by the harlot Christian church system of Rev 17-18.

However we are told that the strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak. Christmas is a pagan holiday that is observed by most of our friends and families in this country. While I personally, cannot in faith, partake of this pagan ritual, I never expect others to be what or where I am. I have very good brothers in Christ who still observe Christmas. This is between them and God. God is the only one who can convict us of our sins. Until He does so, the truth of His new covenant is “Whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” Anyone who can observe Christmas in good faith would be sinning if he did not observe it. Which is like saying that ‘He that eats meat believing that he should not would be sinning,’ even though the scriptures teach that God has given us “meats to be received with thanksgiving.” If any brother is not aware of these verses he would be sinning to go against his conscience.

We do not make decisions for each other. All of our holidays are of pagan origins. Here is God’s feeling concerning Easter sunrise services:

Eze 8:14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate ofnthe LORD’S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

[ Tammuz, or Dumuzi, was the young paramour of Ishtar (Easter). He symbolized the passing and regeneration of the bounty of earth’s vegetation. He died during the scorching heat of summer only to be brought back from the underworld by his lover, Ishtar, in the spring. Tammuz is often identified with the Egyptian Osiris and the Greek Adonis. He was worshipped, in one form or another, throughout the middle east.]

Eze 8:15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
Eze 8:16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
Eze 8:17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
Eze 8:18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.

Read God’s word and ask Him for direction and wisdom, and He will give you guidance in this matter. I would only add that ” bear the infirmities of the weak” is not to be understood as ‘ participate in the infirmities of the weak.’ We must always remain faithful to the knowledge God has given us.
