Nobody Wants To Hear This Crap!

It was sometime before I left the U.S. Navy in 1975 that my wife and I decided that we would no longer celebrate holidays. Not because of religious beliefs as much as recognizing Christ's Mass...or as it is called, "Christmas," was obviously, and not only, a Catholic holiday, but was unequivocally commercialized, hedonistic, and was definitely NOT the day Christ Jesus was born.

At that time, as members of the Church of Christ in Jacksonville, FL., I researched and found that not only was Jesus more likely born in October (due to prevailing weather conditions recorded in the Christian Bible), there were several misunderstood and misconstrued fascets about the soi-disant holiday. To wit: Nowhere within the context of the Bible was anyone, at any time, commanded to celebrate Christ's birth. In fact, in those days, birthday celebrations were considered 'pagan' and not recognized by Christians. (Christmas | Origin, Definition, Traditions, History, & Facts | Britannica https://www.britannica.com/topic/Christmas)

As you will see should you bother to read the material provided by Britannica et al., the exact date of Christ's birth is completely unknown. It was, in fact, like all things Catholic, made up over time to incorporate pagan traditions into Christianity and thereby to corrupt the very foundations of true Christianity.

Take, for example, The Three Wise Men of the famed "We Three Kings" holiday tome. In fact, they were NOT wise men at all, but astrologers that worked for King Herod. Herod heard the tale of this "so-called king of the Jews" being born and dispatched those "wise men" to locate him. Why? Because Herod wanted him DEAD! Read chapter 2 of the Bible book of Matthew. As you will see, there was a "star" that appeared to the "astrologers." Not astronomers, or those who study the stars, but "astrologers," those who pretend to foretell events by the stars.

Consequently, the star appeared only to them, a star nobody else claimed to see anywhere else within the account. If it were visible to everybody, Herod would have sent his soldiers to follow it, would he not? So, king Herod, who wanted the baby murdered, ordered the "wise men" to "do a thorough search" and report to him where the child was. The account states that the star "moved ahead of them" to guide them directly to the child. What star was ever seen that moved ahead of someone to give them directions and then comes to "rest" or hovers directly above the place in which the child laid? Would Jesus Heavenly Father cause this?

Now, THINK...(BTW, fortune-telling is condemned in the Bible) Three fortune-tellers are hired by King Herod to locate the child so that he could be murdered: would God then guide them directly to where the baby laid? These three, i.e., the only persons able to see this mysterious star, are later warned by an angel to NOT RETURN to Herod. They then sneaked off in a different direction, after which an Angel warned Mary and Joseph to get out of Jerusalem altogether. After they fled to Egypt, Herod sent soldiers to slaughter every Jewish child from 2 years of age and under.

As to the other facets of "Christmas," do a little research for yourself: The gift-giving, the tree worship, Santa (saint) Claus, or Nicholas, depending on the location of the myth, all propagated and supported by Satan through the Catholic Church and spread to all other so-called "Christian religions." This along with Easter, praying to Saints, and praying to Mary, etc., and so on and on.

According to his own words, Jesus said that he would hold them accountable for this corruption of TRUE WORSHIP:

15 “Be on the watch for the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s covering, but inside they are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruits, you will recognize them. Never do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles, do they? 17 Likewise, every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, nor can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. 19 Every tree not producing fine fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Really, then, by their fruits you will recognize those men. 21 “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of the heavens, but only the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. 22 Many will say to me in that day: ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name? 23 And then I will declare to them: ‘I never knew you! Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness!’"

Their continued pretense of owning the Kingdom of God will cause them, and all of the so-called Christian churches that follow their pretentious teachings, to be judged accordingly. In the words of Hebrews 10:30, 31,

"30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
