There was once a pagan shrine in Abeokuta where abducted strangers were kidnapped and used for rituals.
When the Catholic missionary Rev. Father Jean-Marie Coquard came to Abeokuta, he won many people to Christ by his humility and simplicity and by the power of the word of God.

Soon that very same evil shrine was torn down and in its place, a Cathedral was built.

Applying this same logic to Christmas, it becomes apparent that replacing a pagan holiday with a Christ centered celebration was therefore, nothing short of a stroke of genius.

The result is that whenever December the 25th is mentioned, the first name that comes to people’s minds is that of Jesus.

Truly the early Church Fathers were very wise.

Their wisdom by far eclipsed that of a 21st century mulatto dummy radio dj and a 7th century illiterate pedophile fake prophet.
By the way, this is what the fake illiterate “prophet” was best known for doing:

this must be the most stupid comment I've read this month...The feasts that God himself instructed are not relevant? They were made to be abolished by who? You? your pastor? what a load of crap
Those feast were not observed by Jesus.They were part of the law. Don't be spiritual illiterate

God instructed sacrifices for the remission of sin....why did we stop

Why did we now work on Sabbath?

Why have access to holy of holies

Why no longer eye for an eye...but love your neighbour

Why no longer stoned to death but Go and sin no more

I guess Jesus waa going against God and mosaics law

3. If you agree Jesus wasn't born in winter, it means you agree he wasn't born on December 25th.
Another proof that Christmas is man made



4. So Christians couldn't understand the most important day of their religion while the Apostles and the Holy Spirit was with them.
But they finally understood it after a pagan helped them choose a date.

God truly works in mysterious ways grin grin

Anyway, 3rd proof that Christmas is man made.



5. In 336AD, Emperor Constantine set December 25th as the official Christmas Day for the Roman Empire. It has remained so till this very day.

Constantine was a pagan but converted to Christianity on his deathbed and was declared a saint till this very day!

alBHAGDADI & MrPresident1 answer these questions or forever remain silent:


1. Why wasn't Christmas mentioned in the Bible?

2. Why did St. Peter, St. Paul and all the authors of the New Testament not make reference to Christmas in the numerous letters they wrote to the churches?

3. How could shepherds be out with their sheep at night on Jesus' birthday if Jesus was born in winter?

4. Why did Christians wait till 336AD (over 300 years after Jesus' death) to celebrate their first Christmas?

5. Why did it take a Pagan (Emperor Constantine) to "remind" Christians to celebrate the most important day of their religion?




PS: You cannot quote Bible verses because the Bible actually has nothing to say about Christmas since the Bible was written long before Christmas (as we are made to believe).


That 'Pagan' - Emperor Constantine is one of the very important people that made the worldwide spread of christianity possible, making christianity the most popular religion by human population.

The problem with the Bible is that you can use it to prove anything angry Literarily anything angry

That makes everything in it unreliable angry Yet, some people pick a part of it and call it the truth, while ignoring another part that says otherwise angry

I still wonder what any educated person is doing with a self contradictory book like that angry

You contradict yourself.

You say "Yes he wasn't born on December 25th" and "there's a 100% chance he was born on December 25th".

Which one is it uncle?

Quoting Bible verses do not justify anything if you cannot provide incontrovertible proof - especially since the Bible's authenticity cannot be verified.



Reasons for Christmas being a pagan holiday wasn't because of Nimrod (another embarrassing error on your part), it is because of the Roman Sun God - Mithra.

1. Dies Natalis Solis Invicti means 'birthday of the unconquered sun' and was held on December 25th (when the Romans thought the Winter Solstice took place) and was the 'birthday' of the Pagan Sun god Mithra.

Years after Jesus' death, Christianity gradually grew popular & incited a lot of riots in the Roman Empire. Emperor Constantine had to merge the pagan Sun God celebration (Sol Invictus) with Christian doctrines to pacify both parties. The Bible you read today was revised by Bishops & politicians & many books were removed & banned at the Council of Nicacea.

Even the sunday you attend churches was gotten from the pagan religion of Mithraism, the holy day was Sunday and is where we get that word from!



2. Jesus couldn't have been born on December 25th because according to his birth story, shepherds flocked at night.

Shepherds don't flock outside in the Middle East around December (winter). This happens around spring (October).

Its usually cold outside and even snows so how on earth could shepherds have been outside at night with sheep on a hill that would probably be snowcapped and devoid of any grass?!


They say ignorance is bliss. Leave the ignorant to wallow in ignorance. They know nothing about history. Nothing!

I love Christmas because it a modification of paganism festival. all thanks to the Roman emperor.


The poet Lucian of Samosata (AD 120-180) has the god Cronos (Saturn) say in his poem, Saturnalia:

‘During my week the serious is barred: no business allowed. Drinking and being drunk, noise and games of dice, appointing of kings and feasting of slaves, singing Unclad, clapping … an occasional ducking of corked faces in icy water – such are the functions over which I preside.""

Olodo...Tithing is inclusive but Jesus is indifferent whether you pay tithe or not Mt 23:23

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.

December 25 was celebrated as the birthday of Lord bal by pagans before emperor Constantine changed it to Jesus birthday.

You can't deceive God. All your doctrines have a root in paganism.
You celebrate easter without knowing the meaning.

What has the name Easter got to do with the death of Jesus Christ? We Christians are not asking questions.

The same way Muslims are not questioning Salah. How come they celebrate Ibrahim sacrifice more than the birth of mohammed.

All these festivals and celebrations are what pagans used to ensure their practices survive till eternity thanks to zombies religion wackos

Do you know that the same Bible you are quoting today was originally written in Aramaic & Hebrew (Jewish languages) before being translated to Greek and then English.


If the originators of the Bible (Jews) doubt Jesus then I believe they m.ust have a very strong reason to.
