Pagan Christmas

The Truth About Christmas

In Commentary, Featured, In the News, Videos by JD Rucker4 Comments

For generations, Christmas have been viewed as a Christian holiday. The reality is that it’s not. This is undisputed by scholars. It’s well known by pastors. However, it has been “adopted” into Christianity based upon the concept that Christ has claimed it for use as a time when Christians can express their hearts. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

In lieu of adding to the debate with our own perspectives, we turn to a pair of teachings that go into better detail about how Christmas was brought into Christian traditions from pagan sources and why this is important to all believers.

  1. You know that it is written in 1Cor 10:31, whether Therefore ye eat, or drink,or whatsoever ye do,do all to the glory of God” Therefore if Christians hold Christmas unto God in remembrance that God sent His Son into the world,to give God the Glory of sending His Son for the sins of the world, there is nothing wrong in that,as long as Christians do all to the Glory of God. 1_Cor 10:31

    1. The video Truth or Tradition shows very well how satan twists the truth. It maybe ok for you in your heart but it’s not what matters to Him. God bless.

  2. Just because you do it with good intentions, does not make it right.. Even the beast masquerades as a sheep from time to time. Is he not still a wolf in sheep’s clothing? Do not allow yourself to be deceived.

  3. December 25th corresponds to the 25th of Kislev, originally called a winter Feast of Tabernacles (Succoth): “And now see that ye keep the Feast of Tabernacles in the month of Kislev.” (2 Maccabees 1:9.) The rabbis later called this Hanukkah (Dedication), but originally it was called a winter Succoth. It is now called Christmas to celebrate the humble circumstances of Messiah’s nativity with outdoor manger scenes and decorated trees. It extends eight days, the eighth day being the day of Christ’s circumcision, January 1st, the new Rosh Hashanah or Feast of Trumpets, a time for making a loud noise–the New Year. It is prophesied that all nations will come to celebrate Succoth–now Winter Tabernacles–Christmas! The New Covenant meant new bottles for the new wine: Pentecost became the Christian Weeks; Ash Wednesday, the Christian Day of Atonement; Good Friday, Christian Passover; Easter, Christian First Fruits; January 1st, Trumpets and Christmas, Tabernacles. Sunday became the Sabbath as prophesied by Isaiah 30:26–“Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.” Monday (the light of the moon) replaced Sunday (light of the sun) as the beginning of the work week. And Sunday became the light of seven days or Sabbath. You cannot put new wine in old bottles or the old bottles will burst, as Jesus said. The New Covenant involved new bottles to carry the new wine of the Gospel. The Divine Liturgy or Mass pointing to the great and last sacrifice of Messiah replaced animal sacrifices.
