Because i wasnt born then, i feel like this is the time for me to do it. And moreover, why not commemorate the death of Christ just one in your life time.

You don't feel what you like when it comes to things pertaining to the Lord.....you act as you were told and how the apostles acted........

Why should I commemorate the death of Christ once in a life time??....was that the instruction given??.......uh??.

Lol........the NISAN 14 is what matters most...we have a foudation we are working with...while you have nothing but a bunch of pagans dictating what you should do and how you should do it...........telling me to discard the use of the modern calendar that should help me arrive at the month and day that alligns with NISAN 14 is a lame argument..........if not for NISAN 14 and the Jewish calender the new calendars we have would not have evolved...........

I have NISAN 14 from the scriptures to work with,while you have nothing......
@Bolded, plz tell me what and what did the pagans dictate for me.
@Red text, for you to have make use of an idol calendar, makes you an idol worshipper. So said your brother truthlyt.

well it been nice chatting with you guys. What I would expected is appeal for Christians to shun the inordinate merrymaking that accompanies Christmas, and lean towards spiritual revival and appreciation for what Christ has done by reaching out to others physically, materially and spirituality. This should not necessarily mean jettisoning the celebration altogether.

But to insist that any observance of the day is inherently evil, and being unable to come up with explicit Biblical references that condemn such, other than the 'pagan festival origin' cliche, is untenable.

Christ said do this in memory of me... He didnt say you should do it yearly/monthly/weekly. So how did you come to the yearly conclusion.
Christ never told his apostles to find someone who will replace Judas by casting losts. Will you now accuse the apostles of doing what they feel like.

What chukwuddi put up there in no way justifies why the birth of Jesus should be commemorated, and then rubbed with paganism.............

The aim is not to justify, but to show your hypocrisy.

ijawkid:
If you guys were on track you would have noticed this discussion isn't about names of months or a calender system,.....this thread is about how pagan festivities or observances has crept into christianity............

the use of pagan names for dating is a pagan observance, and it has crept into Christianity because Christians accepted and use it. So it is relevant. If you don't want christmas, you must also invent your own calender or rely on the Jewish calender for your dating cos everyday in the current calender is pagan and according to brother truthislight each day has a demonic spirit attached to it. You just have to do away with the current calender.

And your aim here has not been to knw the truth about xmas,but to perpetually engage in self gratification and paganism all in the name of Jesus...............

The bible you hold made use of Jewish dates and that is how we knw the month and date of the passover and still allign it till this moment..you guys have no reason and no back up for xmas celebration.....and don't you guys misconstrue truthislights words.........

From what you guys have been saying, i still havent seen any reason why xmas is pagan. And mind you, the truthslyt is basing his reason on the fact that dec 25th is used for sun god worship and so celebrating christmas that day is pagan worship. (did you now see how he relatted sun god worship ro xmas.)... Now, in the same way using truthlyt logic, am telling you that the day in which you celebrate Nisan 14 is equally attributed to a spirit/idol (according to truthlyt) so in the same way, you are equallly worship that spirit on that particular day.

And your aim here has not been to knw the truth about xmas,

...and what truth are you telling us we don't know. We know that:

1. xmas is the annual commemoration of the birth of Christ
2. xmas was initiated by the catholic church in an attempt to win over your pals (the saturnalia worshippers) to the Christian fold, assist them in doing away with their pagan feast.
3. the church chosed the pagan feast day to block the possibility of your pals going back to observe their feast after celebraating that of the church (if it was to hold on a different date)
3. the implementation was not 100% perfect resulting in the inclusion of some of the activities undertaken during the pagan feast in xmas celebrations
4. over time the celebration was refined, some activities were taken out or modified, and some peeps decided to spice up their celebration by adding some other activities.

so what other truth are you telling us?

is it that xmas was not mentioned in the bible? we already know that.
is that there were only few instances in the bible that mentioned birthday celebrations and these celebrations were held by non Jewish kings? we already know that.
is it that in the first instance a life was lost and another was saved leading to Joseph regaining his freedom? this we know
is it that in the second case Herod's wife used the opportunity to ask for the head of John the baptist? this we already know

is there any other truth that is not your personal opinion you want to share with us? Please let hear it.

Hmmm... So your problem now is no longer the celebration, but the date in which it is celebrated. Now if Christmas is to be celebrated on 10th of Oct, will it cease to be a pagan practice in your eyes?

Date,custom etc ....everything is wrong.........rich4god its wrong....all wrong.......I was only just emphasizing that the date(dec 25th) was the beginning of the scam called xmas................the truth is even if today you are told Christ was really born in OCTober(ofcus he wasn't born dec 25th),you guys would never switch....xmas has been seriously programmed to tally with the pagan observance it was taken from..............you can all continue to wallow in this pagan heathen celebration called xmas......when you are satisfied with it you might come to your senses.........

"There is nothing like praise worship on a special day called xmas", but there is something like food on a special day called xmas, and that food is pagan angry you see yourself angry the praise worship is an xmas special; its the first thing i do before the chop-chop. You have the courage to condemn the food aspect because you believe it's risk free but refer me to bible to go and decide for my self when it comes to praise worship angry you see yourself na?

Why are you taking this so personal? this is a general bases...Christmas is celebrated world wide and the motive is uniform. My point is that, the scripture did not instruct this feast how much more laying a command that it´s a day set aside for «praise and worship» . Zikkyy i beg enjoy ur chop chop.....u are faced with the word of God condemning these type of tradition, but you just can`t lets them go for Jesus. So bro...enjoy ur chop chop....gift, drinks, speacial praise and worshp hahaha..... grin
