I have peace within and no one can take it away

How do i show dem love by rejecting their food. As long as i am doing it in the company of brethren who see nothing wrong. I do not partake in the worship. The meat does not defiles. It is the heart intention to affirm an idol.

I believe Apostle paul said in his letters 1st corinthians 10:18-28.

Lastly all things are lawful but not all tinx are helpful. Let no one seek his own good bt d good of his neighbour.

So if eating salah meat publicly will cause my brother to lose faith, i would politely decline.

So as i say my brethren in the north see nothing wrong.
As we dont affirm the sacrifice and the meat does not defile one
If you are knowledgeable and understand that it is of Baal but just need to show them love.

Then it may be of no effect, but it is not advisable for some one who doesn't know this.

This is not the literal food like pork that was reverence as meat that defiles.

It is meat in commemoration of a deity that denounces God having a son, Christ crucifixion, resurrection and the holy spirit (basically the Antichrist as Jesus himself put it)

A cult that does blasphemy to God probably when preparing the food.

Don't forget blasphemy against the holy spirit is not forgiveable, and people perish for lack of knowledge.

Remember that this cult is the biggest Antichrist group and how it was possible it decieved the very elite, (God punishes all that fornicates with her either through ignorance or deliberate) so don't be wise in your own eyes

DeOTR:

Jesus as a name itself, is a transliterated version of the original. In Hebrew form, both Jesus and Joshua are one and the same name. Though, Joshua is very close in pronunciation to the original name than Jesus, they mean the same thing, "Yahweh is salvation".
So in actual sense, Nigerians do name their children, Jesus.
Yeah man

His connection to roman catholic.

I know man u fans who knows little about Liverpool players.
But in Religion, it is difficult for a Muslim to wear Santa clause uniform.
Difficult for Christian to eat Sallah meat

Religion stains whatever it touches. Religion has caused division among senior advocate of Nigeria. Ignoring the problem of religion in this country never manages to push the problem away. Ignoring the problem often compounds the problem until it grows into a mountain .

. An average Christian wishes  everyone is a Christian. An average Muslim wishes everyone becomes a Muslim. Each tries to project his desire to the other. Whenever a Muslim is in power, Christians fear he is on a mission to islamise the country.  Whenever a Christian becomes president, Muslims fear the same.This fear makes it difficult for them to cooperate amicably . Christian trust Christian leaders, Muslims trust Muslim leaders.


Our education system is fueling this saperation.  From primary school, children learn mathematics, English language, Basic science and other languages together. But when it comes to religious studies, Christians are divided from Muslims. This continues until the child finishes secondary school. The school saperates the children as kids and expect them to miraculously work together as adults.

The academia should develop a general religious knowledge curriculum. At an early age, children ought to be introduced to all form of religion outside the religion of their parents. A growing child should have basic knowledge of Christianity, Islam, African Traditional Religion, Buddhism etc.  Limiting him to one knowledge alone create a narrow mind and makes him difficult to tolerate and work with another Religion for which he never knew existed. When we delve into other belief, we become intrigued by the similarities. We become more accepting .


Christian should not wish everyone were a Christian. If everyone thinks alike, the world would be bored. God created us different for a reason . Muslim should wish every Christian develop a greater understanding and acceptance of Islam while remaining firmly within their own Religion.

Oh ok, so will you deem it acceptable if people say they are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ on the 25th of December, which is diffferent from asserting that he was born on that day?
jikins:


They will be like no, its just a day we picked. There's nothing wrong with it. But there's everything wrong with it. Everytime anyone says Jesus was born on Christmas day, they are lieing and they spread this lie even sing it and celebrate it. Suddenly lieing becomes acceptable and not a sin once every year, just because we all decided it is so. SMH

It has no role. Santa claus is pagan. Today, my people worship santa claus than jesus on christmas day. Infact they celebrate santa than jesus christ even in the church.

You are ignorant like most on this trend. Look up Saint Nicholas on google. Santa Claus original name was Saint Nicholas.

Saint Nicholas was a Christian priest that loved children sharing them gifts many centuries ago. The same way that Saint Valentine existed who was the reason why valentine day was started because of his selfless service for couples.

Santa Claus is a distorted pronunciation of Saint Nicholas by toddlers or children that found it hard to pronounce the real name Saint Nicholas. Ask your one year old child to pronounce Saint Nicholas and listen to what it sounds like. Of course he won’t sound properly. Coincidentally, Santa also means “Saint “ in Spanish language.

Because children loved him for his gifts. The practice was made as a fun part of Christmas for children because children love Christmas.

Nope it's not. I was just trying to get your perspective on the matter. I now see you are not quite sure of your opinion on the subject or you would rather keep shifting the goal post. So again it goes, what's your problem with Christmas. That some wrongly believe Christ was born on that day? Or that Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, despite the fact that they are uncertain about the date? Bear in mind that in those times time was measured using day, night, and seasons.
Meanwhile you are the one trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.

oga we are saying the same thing.

Christians never said they know the month Christ was born let alone the day in the month.

For crying out loud no one knows, but December 25th was chosen as the more acceptable date.

That's not an excuse to welcome pagan beliefs, bro.

You can share gifts anytime.

Santa Claus original name was Saint Nicholas. He was a priest that dedicated his life to children just like Saint Valentine dedicated his life to couples. It’s not a pagan practice.

Of course, Jesus’ birth has nothing to do with Christmas. Meanwhile, what is the role of Father Christmas or Santa in Christianity?

Look up Saint Nicholas on google and free yourself from ignorance.

That’s the original name of Santa Claus. He was a Christian priest that dedicated his life to children just like Saint valentine dedicated his life to Roman couples before his execution.

The distorted pronunciation of Saint Nicholas by toddlers or children is Santa Claus. That’s where the name come from. Coincidentally Santa also means a Saint in Spanish

I am not a Christian but Christianity is not built on Christmas.

By the way what is "pagan" and what is wrong with "pagan" practices

Santa Claus was Saint Nicholas. The name is gotten from Sinter Klaas, the Dutch short form of Sint Nikolaas.

He was a man who loved children and was very kind and generous to them. There's a story that he saved three girls from being sold into slavery or prostitution by their father, by paying their dowry so they could marry.

His day of celebration is December 6th, which is the day he died. I think people just joined it with Christmas since it is so close to Christmas anyway.
