    Eph 2:11 Therefore remember that you, once gentiles1 in the flesh, who are called ‘the uncircumcision’ by what is called ‘the circumcision’ made in the flesh by hands, Footnote: 11 Cor. 12:2.
    Eph 2:12 that at that time you were without Messiah, excluded from the citizenship of Yisra’ĕl and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no expectation and without Elohim in the world.
    Eph 2:13 But now in Messiah יהושע you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah.
    Eph 2:19 So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the set-apart ones and members of the household of Elohim,


    Jer 10:1 Hear the word which יהוה speaks to you, O house of Yisra’ĕl.
    Jer 10:2 Thus said יהוה, “Do not learn the way of the gentiles,1 and do not be awed by the signs of the heavens, for the gentiles are awed by them.2 Footnotes: 1Lev. 18:3, Dt. 12:30 & 18:9, Ezek. 11:12 & 20:32, Eph. 4:17, 1 Peter 4:3. 2Dt. 4:19 & 17:3.
    Jer 10:3 “For the prescribed customs of these peoples are worthless, for one cuts a tree from the forest, work for the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool.
    Jer 10:4 “They adorn it with silver and gold, they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it does not topple.
    Jer 10:5 “They are like a rounded post, and they do not speak. They have to be carried, because they do not walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they do no evil, nor is it in them to do any good.”
    Jer 10:6 There is none like You, O יהוה. You are great, and great is Your Name in might.
    Jer 10:7 Who would not fear You, O Sovereign of the nations? For this is Your due, for among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their reigns, there is none like You.
    Jer 10:8 They are both brutish and foolish, an instruction of worthlessness is the tree.


    Happy Mithras Day.

  3. It is true that Christmas day and the Christmas tree have pagan origins, but going over the top and applying scripture that refers to idol worship is not accurate or a very Christian thing to do.

    Oh. So is Christmas of pagan origin or not? I always thought that if something was pagan it shouldn't be participated in by believers. I'm almost sure I read that somewhere. Oh yeah, it's in that passage I just posted. Besides, Dec. 25 is the birthday of the sun god. His symbol was the crux. His mother was a virgin. Isn't this what Christmas is about?

    I guess I'm just in a sarcastic mood today.

  5. Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen,(pagan)

    It funny how so-called christians choose to ignore what God says so they can learn and practice pagan customs. Even those that admit christmas and the tree came from pagan customs continue to keep it.

    What a slap in Gods face. Oh well it isn't the first time they have done it.

    TODAY? :wow:

    But, what if the pagans are right? There is just as much evidence to support the pagan view as their is to support your (whatever the heck you are) view.
     
  8. That's fine, just don't slap Christ name on pagan days.
     
  9. Today??!?

    Anyway, I just answered this on the other thread:
     
  10. Yeah, 'cause we wouldn't want to claim pagan things for Christ.
    Pagan things like you & I. Right? (Not)

    BTW, God claimed many formerly pagan things for Himself, such as animal sacrifice, baptism, temples, circumcision, etc., etc.
     
  11. Christmas is of both pagan and Christian origin. The Roman Empire was very good at syncretism. That is gluing things together. Wasn't Jesus mother a virgin? BTW there is no commandment against celebrating Jesus birth.

    I don't have a tree, but I do acknowledge Jesus birth. I don't judge people for keeping the day to the Lord. This is what the Bible tells us to do. Don't be so sarcastic and judgmental.

    Romans 14:5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
    14:6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
    14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
    14:8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.
    14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
     

  12. God created all things, sorry Bert you don't see this. God created animal sac.,baptism,temples,circum. for Himself.. Man (just like the rcc today) took Gods created things and used it in worship of their own gods.

    ;)
     
  13. Are we not to walk as Jesus walked ? do as Jesus did? Christmas customs came into christianity much later than when Jesus lived. So He never done or approved them.

    "I don't have a tree, but I do acknowledge Jesus birth."

    In the Bible who were the only ones that acknowledged in a celebration ones birth?

    If Jesus had wanted His birth kept why not give the date, since the Bible is very specific on dates God wants us to keep?

    Jesus did however ask us to remember His death and gave us the date in which to do it. He did it as an example for us to keep.

    After all Jesus died for our sins He wasn't born for them.

  14. Actually, I do see it. It's you who are denying it.

    And He didn't create things like pine trees? :dunno:

    Ahh ... calumny. Didn't take too long for you to be bearing false witness.
    You should think about actually following Christ some time.
     
  15.  
  16. He does?
    Where?

    I'm not sure if you really belive this, or if you're purposefully deceptive.

    Really? You can cite this, I'm sure, even though the historian I quoted above disputes this. :popcorn:

    Kingarthurhk Isaiah 53:4-9

    The irony of this is that you condemn others for not observing feasts that Jesus Himself fulfilled, and then you comdemn others for wanting to celebrate a day of giving and caring in honor of His birth. I would be inclined to celebrate another day other than December 25th if you could just prove to me on which day Jesus was born. I know it wasn't December, but I can't tell you the exact month or day. Can you?

    "Better is the day of one's death, than the day of one's birth."

    All the clues point to Him being born at Succot. Doesn't really matter because we aren't told to celebrate His birth. If we were, He would have given us a Feast Day for it. We are told to keep Passover, Unleavened Bread, Pentacost, Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles,a nd the Last Great Day. None of which you seem to keep. So I find it even more ironic that you are condemning me for keeping Days He said to keep forever because I said you shouldn't keep a day that celebrates the sun god.

    Kingarthurhk Isaiah 53:4-9

    Jesus fulfilled the Passover by showing us how to keep it in honor of Him, and when He died as the sacrifice without blemish on the Cross. Jesus fulfilled the feast of unlevened bread by being the Bread of Life. Jesus stood up in the Gospel of John and fufilled the Feast of Booths (Tabernacles) by declaring Himself the water of Life. Yet, you ignore Jesus, and look back toward the ceremonies that pointed to Him, and the same time declare no one should celebrate the birth of our Salvation. Very very strange.

    So He was the Passover Lamb, but no longer? He was the Bread of Life, but no longer? I'm not going to listen to you tell me I'm looking back at something. I'm not. You're the one who's screwed up. I celebrate Him in every one of those days that He said to keep forever and I'll listen to Him thankyou. Me strange?

    .....wow I'm trying real hard to stay calm here...

    He fulfilled them so we don't have to? Really? REALY??? Please tell me where this nugget of wisdom can be found. Apparently I'm still stuck on the part where He tells us they won't pass till heaven and earth do. Please, oh please, tell me where in the Bible I can find where He lied and changed His mind?
