This year, like every year, America will celebrate Christmas. The reason given will be to honor Christ’s birth, a man who came to help the poor, sick and children. A life of service, generosity and commitment.
The principles Christ left us with are certainly something to celebrate.
So how do we honor this man’s life? How do you celebrate his birth?
Here are some fun facts you should know about the way we, as a society, have decided to celebrate Christmas:
- The Christmas tree, introduced in 1851, is Pagan practice.
- December 25th is the celebration of the Sun God, which is why this date was used to celebrate Christ’s birth as well. If you think this doesn’t matter, then why don’t you celebrate your loved one’s next birthday on your ex’s see how kosher that is?
- Santa comes from an old pagan belief that a winter spirit, often referred to as the god Odin, used to fly in the sky with horses. Today, the pagan god of Odin, a.k.a. Santa, is now called the father of Christmas by hundreds of millions of Christians.
- Decorating with holly (and ivy) is a pagan tradition used for Saturnalia celebrations.
- Mistletoe was used in the old pagan winter festivals as a sign for killing…at least the Christians changed that to kissing.
To add insult to injury, today’s Christians who refer to Yeshua (real name in Hebrew) as Jesus are really saying, “Hail Zeus.”
The letter “J” wasn’t even in the English language until 400 A.D., and to top it off, the English translation of Yeshua is NOT Jesus – it’s Joshua.
Bottom line: Christmas, like the American church, is corrupt down to the core, and the evidence is its annual celebration of hyper-consumerism that is as ugly as it gets all year long, right around Christmas.
