I wrote this after reading an article "A wound that refuses to heal" by Tarek Ali Hassan about the assassinations of JFK,RK, and MLK, asking why we the people have never done anything but accept what the leaders tell us. I think we are too complacent to bother changing what we know to be lies. I also believe Satan is the father of complacency and lies! Therefore we are easily decieved into these thoughts, that keep us from having the necessary motivation to fight for change. Besides it's his way of keeping us from God.
It would be earthshaking to put it mildly, if we were to admit we want to change Christmas and other lies we have lived with for centuries. Who wants to leave their comfort zones to take on such an enormous task as turning the lies of legends into truths!
If you do the research you find that there is no valid record for Christ's birth but almost everyone agrees it wasn't December 25th. The
American Bishops, did not explain to catholics that the true birth date of Jesus is not known, that Dec. 25 is only an estimation that was picked in the 3rd century. According to the Catholic Encyclopedica,
Jesus was thought (by Catholic theologians)to have been born in the month of March.I have not celebrated Christmas as the day of Christ's birth in many years. I have celebrated it with family and friends as the day of Giftmas. That's what I think it should be called. Actually if I had my way we would say"Merry Giftmas " That the Catholic church took it upon themselves to celebrate Christ's birthday on a pagan holiday is typical of how the church at that time did things.
They used the excuse that the people of the time were mostly illiterate so the leaders had to make all decisions. Those decisions have lasted over hundreds of years and no one wants to upset the applecart. However a lot moaning goes on about it, and each year becomes more bitter during the holiday's. I wish we would either stop the complaints or do something about it.
The catholic church of that time is also responsible for Santa Claus, which supposedly was a Turkish prelate the Roman Catholic church raised to sainthood , a Catholic bishop, Nicholas of Myra in Lycia (now Turkey), who was born about the end of the third century.He was sainted and called Saint Nicholas which legend tells us became : Father Christmas, Father Frost, Joulupukki, Kris Kringle, Père Noël, Sabdiklos, Saint Nicolas, Sancte Claus, Sinter Klaas, Weihnachtsmann,Santa Claus.
However,Most religious historians and experts in folklore believe that there is no valid evidence to indicate that St. Nicholas ever existed as a human. They can find no evidence of him,like they do with other members of the clergy of the time.In fact, there are quite a few indicators that his life story was simply recycled from those of Pagan gods. So you see, the church leaders at that time are responsible for a great fraud upon society, which has never been corrected to this day, of both Christ's birthday and celebration and that of Santa Claus.
" The Real Christ inspired John to record in Revelation 12:9..."Satan has the whole world (society) deceived," and as he (Satan) comes to see his time is short (Revelation 12:12) he will lash out a large scale, unprecedented, tribulation and human carnage on an unsuspecting society, which God will permit, because of man's enormous sins.
Hopefully, God will help some to come to see their sins, repent and draw away from these false Christs, by coming out of today's false Christianity, and all false religions so that they can be protected from all the human suffering and devastation when it comes!"" The true Christ would never command His true followers to observe Christmas by setting aside that day, using His Name in conjunction with the same time of the year other people of the past, worshipped their gods--the sun god--the birth of the "new sun."
This is the Solstice season of December, and the time where and when Christmas was founded with all its superstitions, rituals and idol worship, such as the yule log (sun wheel) symbol of the sun, lights and candles, encouraging the waning sun at its lowest place, and the beginning (birth) of a new sun: along with mistletoe, encouraging revelry and sensual pleasure. These are all customs of past, pagan, worship of the winter "sun god," observed for hundreds of years."
(the last two paragraphs were transcribed from an article, which I believe to be true!)
From all I have studied of God and Christianity, it is my belief that the way the religious churches of all denominations have dealt with Christmas is a big hoax and a disgrace, that I want nothing to do with. This may have lost me family and friends, but I don't care! I no longer will be a part of Satans big lie!
If you want to accept it that's your decision and I'll respect it, after all I lived it for most of my life, so I can't judge anyone else. I'm just stating the facts, and how I feel about them. Sad that our whole lives have been filled with traditions based on lies and treachery by the very people who were suppose to tell us truth , and then they wonder why people opt out of religion.
I know, God is not to blame for the lies others have deceived us with. God wants a loving intimate relationship with the people He created! He asks that we go directly to Him and talk. Let Him speak to you, if you feel the need. Sorry if I offend anyone,I just felt I had to share my opinion of what christmas isn't! I feel that in this present age especially it,has nothing to do with Christ! Even churches have commercialized it.
