X-Mas: The Biggest Pagan Holiday/Holyday of the Year
12/3/2006–Is X-Mas Biblical? Let explore the facts so you can see for yourself. On 12/24/1871 Charles H. Spurgeon said: “We have no superstitious regard for times and seasons. Certainly we do not believe in the present ecclesiastical arrangement called Christmas. First because we do not believe in any mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be sung in Latin or in English: Secondly, because we find no scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and consequently, its observance is a superstition,..
It was not till the middle of the third century that any part of the Church celebrated the birth of our Lord;.. Probably the fact is that the ‘holy’ days were arranged to fit in with the heathen festivals. We venture to assert that if there be any day in the year of which we may be pretty sure that it was not the day on which our Savior was born it is the 25th of December. Regarding not the day, let us give God thanks for the gift of His dear Son. How absurd to think we could do it in the spirit of the world, with a Jack Frost clown, a deceptive worldly Santa Claus, and a mixed program of sacred truth with fun, deception and fiction…The Catholics and high Church Episcopalians may have their Christmas one day in 365 but we have a Christ gift the entire year.”
Dec. 25 is known as the ‘nativity’ of the sun or birthday of Tammuz (the sun god).
Plus much more.
