“Christmas Was Not Among The Earliest Festivals of The Church...
The First Evidence of The Festival Is From Egypt.”

(Catholic Encyclopaedia 1911 Edition)


Christmas, is nothing but an ancient pagan festival that was adopted by the Roman Catholic church and given a Christian veneer. These facts have now become embarrassingly obvious.

The question now is:
Should a true believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel celebrate Christmas? Is it acceptable to enter into this festival and keep this pagan festival now that their heathen origins have become widely known? And will the Holy One of Israel object to one of His followers, say, attending a Christmas dinner or party?

The Bible answer is absolutely clear on this point and IF you have the courage to read it. Turn to (1 Corinthians 10) and study (verses 16-22) where you will find this question answered, and it amounts to this: Those who eat festival sacrifices become united with the god to whom those sacrifices are made. - (verses 16-18)

Though the food partaken of is itself not intrinsically changed (verse 19) when a person partakes of and shares in a pagan festival or celebration, he/she becomes partner with the spirits of evil, the demon host who daily defy the dictates of the Almighty. - (verses 20-21)

As the Apostle Paul says:
1 Corinthians 10: 20: But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
21: Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
22: Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?”

In other words, when a person celebrates Xmas, which was and still is motivated by the forces of evil, he/she is honouring the demons who conceived that pagan festival in the first place; demons who are totally opposed to the Holy Spirit of God; and who go out of their way too prompt mankind into committing all kinds of evil at their winter festival. You may be sure the so-called ‘spirit of Xmas’ is not the Holy Spirit of the LORD God of the Bible.

  • Maxed out credit cards, rivalry, selfishness, greed.
  • Drunkenness, violence, suicide and depression.
  • Loneliness, lasciviousness and debauchery.
  • These are all hallmarks of the Xmas season.
Ask any hospital emergency department or funeral industry and they will tell you it's their most dreaded time of the year! Everyone is now aware of these facts! People do not like the truth, including those who call themselves true Christians.

What is Truth?
Believe it or not this is an age-old question. According to the dictionary, truth is something that is in accordance with the facts, something genuine, correct and accurate, something that lives up to its claims. Do we find Truth in our society? Not much, you will agree.

Truth, for all its value, is not popular. Multiplied millions of people reject truth; simply because they love sin, even though they know it's wrong. Sin is a spiritual drug with deadly side-effects. Sin brings pleasure, instant pleasure: but in the end sin leads to death - eternal death!

The Bible says that just before the Saviour returns to earth, Truth (The Son, The Word & The Law of God) will be rejected in favour of fables, myths, entertaining fiction and outright sin. That time has come. It is here.
2 Timothy 4: 3: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4: And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

A fable is a story that is not based on fact. A fable is the opposite of truth. It is a legend, a myth handed down through the centuries. Fables are fiction. They are not truth. Strange as it may sound, fiction is becoming extremely popular these days. A visit to any library will prove this.

How accurate is the Bible when it says: “They shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” People are rejecting the Bible record of the creation. They are rejecting the law of God. Instead they are embracing fables, fiction and outright falsehood.

Truth is invincible
Truth is as powerful over falsehood as light is over darkness. Nothing can destroy the truth. Sinners may hate truth, reject truth and fight truth with all their might; but truth is unaffected: it cannot be destroyed. Truth is invincible. Truth can penetrate even the darkest recesses of the human mind. Truth is eternal, as eternal as God Himself. The Apostle Paul writes in...
2 Corinthians 13: 8: “For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.”

The Christian church is guilty of placing the traditions of men above the commandments of God. The celebrating of christmas, Easter, Ash-Wednesday, the Nativity of St John, the Feast of the Assumption, Hallowe'en and Sunday etc. are all human traditions. Not one of these festivals was authorized by the LORD God. They are all spiritual weeds in the Garden of Salvation.

Celebrating them in preference to Yahweh's Sabbaths is no more than self- deluding idolatry. These facts may stun or even anger some who read them. But they must be told! Because replacing a divine commandment with a human tradition is a very serious sin.

At the coming judgment would you forgive me for not telling you the truth?
Matthew 5: 12: Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
13: But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14: Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

They are without excuse:
Romans 1: 20: For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

Not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1: 32: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
