The excuse of December 25th not been the birth day of Christ for not celebrating Christmas is selective practice and does not pass the smell test.

These same churches celebrate Easter, the death and resurrection of Christ despite these dates not known to the Bible.

Even the Sunday we go to church is alleged to be associated with idolatry and the worship of the Sun God.

All these dates are symbolic, we know that we don’t know the actual dates because they were not recorded but we believe these events too place hence the symbolic ceremonies.

Even the date January 1st is a different date and day back then because we used different calendar and counting systems.

So chill out and enjoy your Christmas meal without quilts conscience.

God bless you for this.

Even Sunday which Jehovah's witnesses use to Preach is said to be the Day dedicated to the Roman Sun God. undecided

January as a month is connected to a Greek god, Janus. smiley

If Christians should dig deep, most of our practices came from Roman paganism and it's not our Fault.
As Christianity came from Rome. sad

On the argument that Christmas is a Pagan feast

Another Christmas, and the recycled argument continues on how 25th December is a pagan feast, and how Christ was not born on the 25th.

Some things don’t go well with me, arguments like this that don’t make any logical sense.

Let us agree that Jesus was not born on the 25th, can you kindly suggest to us a new date? And since you know he was not born on the 25th, it therefore means you know or have an idea of the date he was born. Tell us then.

I heard this same argument for Sunday. They said Sunday is a day of worship of the pagan Sun-god and that the meaning of Sunday came from the Sun-god.

I remembered sharing a detailed teaching and telling those propagating that message the reason for Sunday, being that it was the first day of the week, and Christ rose that day and started appearing to his disciples every first day of the week as they gathered behind closed doors in prayers.

I think I should not have wasted my time in doing that, what I should have done would have been to simply remind them that the days of the week as we have them today were all adopted. They are all pagan.

Monday is named after the god of the moon. Thursday is for the Norse god known in Modern English as Thor. Friday is named after the Anglo-Saxon goddess Fríge. Saturday is named after the Roman god Saturn.

There is this impression from some of you that once anything has a pagan origin it is evil and it is impossible for it to be 'Christianized.'

Well, unfortunately, many things came from the pagans, including the papyrus that was used to write the bible in those days. The tradition of offering visitors kolanut in Igbo culture is largely pagan. Even Baptism as we know it today as the pouring of water or immersion in rivers did not start with Christians. Eating pork is pagan. New yam festival is pagan. Ojuju Calabar is pagan.

What some of you fail to see is that the Christian faith must be planted in a culture for it to take root. Even St Paul while preaching to the Areopagus in Act 17:16-34 had to use what the Athens have as an altar to the "unknown god", to plant the message of the living and known God into them.

Once the Christian faith is planted in any culture, it uproots the bad in it and retains the good. This is why once you mention "Sunday" we think about the day of worship in church and not sun-god. This is why 25th December may not be the day Christ was born in your calculation, but it has taken a Christian dimension pushing aside whatever it was known with before. This is why the cross, which was pagan, and seen as a symbol of shame, has now taken a total different meaning the moment Christ was crucified on it.

The pagan cross moved from shame to fame, from gory to glory (let me be looking for rhyme words like a motivational speaker since na watin una wan hear. Nobody should stress me biko.)

OP correct your assay. GKS is never a part of Jehovah's witness neither was the founder part of Jehovah's witness. Take note. She was founder in 1934 in Lagos and it began to spread to other parts of the country and to the rest of the world. The headquarters is in Warri Delta state. We do not share so many things with the so called Jehovah's witness. Take note.

This is wrong! Before the Catholic church, there was something and this was the church of Christ which started 33AD until the Roman Catholic popped up 600+ years later and when the likes of Luther sought for a return to the old order this brought about the evolution of churches as it were today from Methodist, Baptist and the likes despite most of their leaders wanting not to be named after the ideas they're leading.

Edusouls:
For 1550 years there was only one church on earth and that’s the Catholic Church, Martin lurther who is a priest broke away due a misunderstanding with the way the church is doing some things, king Edward broke away to form the Anglican Church cos the pope refused him to marry a second cos the first didn’t give him a male child, many fragments of Christian churches began to form that’s the problem we have today u see numerous crazy, clueless and one man led churches under the name of Christianity, after catholic, Anglican, Methodists other are just businesses and not church

MrProlific95:
Most of us acknowledge the fact that there are some reservations about Christmas. Notwithstanding, the birth any day could have been chosen to celebrate the birth if Christ.

Besides for enemies of Christianity who want to be hypcrite, they should remember that some muslims celebrate Birth of Prophet Mohammad whereas majority of muslims do not celebrate it
Weyrey child of hate and perdition.
A Christian opened a thread on Christmas and about Christmas, you ended up bringing Muslims and Islam to it.

As for others, the look like breakaway from Jehovah Witness and Deeper Life that's why they share same doctrine.

Na dem sabi.

Merry Christmas to everyone
You know nothing. Purge yourself from fake doctrine and witness the renewal of your being in Christ Jesus.. Nobody is saying you shouldn't celebrate the birthday of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, but saying he was born on the 25th of December when it wasn't written in the bible. Jesus Christ was born in the month of October. That's why you people mark His death and resurrection in April every year instead of June.
Since he was born in the month of October, he lived for 33 and halve age, His 33rd birthday was October. 6 months later he was killed . When you count six months from October you will arrive at April. If it was in December, it will be in June. Do you mark his death and resurrection in June? Your answer is as good as mine.
No what you celebrate and purge yourself from ungodly activities. Anything that doesn't bring glory to God Almighty will be burned. Those celebrating Christmas are honouring the devil and will receive the devil's rewards.
