    Once again you have presented yourself as one of those Christians who gives
    such a negative impression that you turn people away from Christianity. You
    have made the classic mistake of allowing secular rituals the interfere with
    the legitimate observance of Christ's birth and resurrection. That he
    wasn't born on December 25th is totally irrelevant.

    Many of us specifically take time this year to honor the birth of Christ.
    Whether you feel compelled to label ALL celebration as pagan is up to you,
    and remains your problem.

    What do you do this time of year besides muttering to yourself about how
    unholy everyone is? -And how does that honor Christ, or draw people to him?

    Warm holiday messages from anonymous trolls just seem a little warmer, don't
    they?

    What is negative about quoting facts found in the encyclopedia? What is
    negative about exposing paganism?

    You have mistaken documented facts for secular rituals. Why is christmas
    observed on December 25th? Could it have anything to do with paganism?

    I did not "label ALL celebration as pagan", I stated that certain
    holidays have pagan origins.

    I have not muttered anything about anyone.
    What do you do on Holydays?

    There is just one question you need to answer.

    Are you bringing people closer to Christ with your posts, or are they
    repelled further from him?

    If they are repelled (and I dare say they nearly universally are), then you
    are an agent for the OTHER side, whether you mean to be or not.

    Think about this.

    =============================

    Jesus said, " No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent
    me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day." Jhn 6:44
    If any are repelled from Christ by the truth, then it is because the
    Father does not draw him and he therefore cannot come to Christ.
    There were some who turned away from Christ because of the teachings of
    the Apostles, were they agents for the other side? I am not trying to
    repel anyone from Christ. The subject line concerns holidays and I spoke
    the truth concerning holidays. I did not mean to offend anyone but
    sometimes the truth is offensive to some people and this particular
    truth is offensive to a lot of people, believe me, I know. I
    participated in christmas practices for most of my life until I knew the
    truth.

    Well anyway, You probably won't be seeing me around here very much after
    the end of this year, I have been spending too much time reading this
    group and need and want to spend more time studying eternal things.
    There are some very interesting people here, who share an interest in
    photography as I do also, but only 24 hours in a day.

    Steve Barker has forged my message and replaced every occurrence of the
    words "Happy Holidays" with his distasteful religious reference. If he had
    any integrity he would have begun a new thread instead of altering mine in a
    feeble attempt to make it look like I had said those words. Please excuse
    his ***very*** bad taste.
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    Afterall, the word "Christmas" does refer to "A Christian feast commemorating
    the birth of Jesus". An oft-quoted phrase: "Jesus is the the reason for the
    season". :)

    I would hardly call calling the holiday what it is bad taste. Remember,
    there is only ONE reason for the season.

  18. Yes, the reason for the season is the winter solstice, a pagan
    celebration. The Christians of about the 4th Century decided to
    celebrate a holiday remembering Jesus' birth at the same time to take
    away from the existing celebration. Jesus was probably born in the
    spring of the year we would call 4 BC. Now what is this season about
    again??

    So for about the last 1600 years or so it has traditionally been called
    "Christmas". So why is that sooooo offensive to people these days? Jesus is the
    reason for the "Christmas" season. People are always free to celebrate "winter
    solstice" if they like, but that's not Christmas. It might've shared a calender
    date at some time. Christ-mas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.
    It doesn't matter if it's the exact day or not, because we know not the exact
    day. In New Zealand, "Queens Birthday Weekend" ain't exactly celebrated on the
    Commonwealth Queen's exact birth day. You get the idea. :)
