33 - Christmas and the Way of Life
Now that we've clarified that the customs and traditions surrounding christmas are entirely pagan in origin, having spawned from demonic witchcraft practices of human sacrifice to celebrate the birth of the sun god, and that Christ and the biblical records do not support any of the current teachings regarding Christ having been born in december, let's ask the question, does it matter? One hears that question most frequently from christians who know christmas is not biblical, who know Christ was not born in december, and yet who still decide to celebrate it. Does it matter?
Well, yes it does. In fact, we can handle christmas with one verse.
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
Do you think it is okay to lie to young children? Do you think it is okay with God to tell lies to young children? If you do, your head is full of the spirit of christmas. Lying is simply wrong. Yet, this is what people do every christmas. They choose to ignore God's word and instead lie to their children, filling their heads with witchcraft rituals that originate and culminate in human sacrifice, usually that of young children.
Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
Look, I don't care about all your reasons and excuses, lying to children breaks the word. I don't care how much you wrap it up in tinsel or how flashy the lights are on your tree, lying is lying, and parents lying to their children is against the will of God. You do it for the kids?
What exactly is it you do for the kids? You wrap up presents for them, put them under a tree, and enjoy a good family day together with an excellent meal. Why can't you do that without lying? Why not bin the tree and put the presents in a pile under the window instead? Why not open the presents and have your family day on December 24th? If your children question what you're doing, tell them the truth. Tell them only the heathen celebrate the birth of the sun god on December 25th, and santa clause doesn't exist, he's a lie. Tell them their presents represent the gifts the Magi gave to Jesus Christ when he was a toddler in Bethlehem. Teach your children the truth, don't lie to them. They will still enjoy unwrapping their presents. They will still enjoy the family time and their dinner. Do it for the kids.
Still think God thinks it is okay if you celebrate christmas and lie to your children?
Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
God in his word very clearly states that we are not to learn the ways of the heathen. That God had to confront this practice hundreds of years before Christ certainly confirms that decorating trees was a well practiced heathen tradition even then. If you lie to your children, you are in direct opposition to God and his word. And don't waggle your tongue at me and tell me this is the age of grace. Grace is not to be used as an excuse to sin, and lying is sin.
Still think it doesn't matter? Saul thought it didn't matter to disobey God as long as it was for a good cause.
1 Samuel 15:22,23
And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
Still think it doesn't matter? Jesus Christ had much to say about the traditions of men, confronting those who chose to put the traditions of men above the word of God. Christmas is very much a tradition of men that is contrary to the word of God and which is fuelled by the love of money, so Jesus Christ's confrontation is still relevant.
And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
If you reject the word of God and lie to children, you are rejecting the commandment of God. Lying to young children is not acceptable under any circumstances. Forget trees and presents and family time, lying is the issue here. If you hold the traditions of men in higher esteem than God's word and lie to your children, you are rejecting the commandment of God. Am I killing santa claus? I certainly hope so.
Here are a few other points you may wish to consider. The feast of Saturnalia is the worship of the birth of the sun god, the devil, a feast consummated in ritualistic human murder. The devil became the god of this world, the illuminated sun god, when man fell back in Genesis chapter 3, so this may very well have occurred on december 25th. Human sacrificial offerings are most likely spiritual representations of the fall of man, when Adam and Eve died spiritually on the very day that they disobeyed God and handed their dominion of the world to the devil. The celebration of the birth of the sun god on december 25th is a celebration of the fall of man and the inauguration of the devil as the god of this world. And you want to celebrate that?
If you still think it doesn't matter, try this.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Living God's way is a decision, it's a choice we make. You cannot use grace as an excuse to lie to children. The word says to put away lying, and that must include lying to children about fat bastards like santa claus.
In this administration, we are told in Colossians that we are not to allow any man to judge us in respect of holy days, and this is the verse folks use to justify their celebrating christmas. They say it's okay to celebrate christmas and no one has a right to judge them.
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
Now yes, we know that this is the age of Grace and that there is nothing unclean of itself, and that a tree is just a piece of wood and having one in your home is neither good nor evil in and of itself. However, Colossians cannot contradict Galatians, can it? Try this then.
But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years.
I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
Whatever Colossians is saying, it cannot contradict the rest of the bible, can it? So what is Colossians actually saying then? It is not saying that it's okay to celebrate days, months, times and years and we are not to allow other christians to judge us for it, for that would contradict Galatians and a hundred other scriptures. According to Paul in Galatians, if you celebrate christmas, labour has been bestowed upon you in vain, to no purpose - teaching you the word has been a waste of fucking time. So Colossians means the exact opposite of what most dumb christians think. It is saying that we don't allow UNBELIEVERS to judge us for abstaining from observing their stupid traditions like christmas, and for abstaining from their meats and drunkenness. This is further corroborated by Peter.
1 Peter 4:3,4
For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
What Colossians is saying is that we don't stand for unbelievers judging us for not sticking our noses in their horseshit. If you give up christmas the world is going to speak evil of you, I can assure you, because the world is greedy and it will hurt their income. What's more important to you, God or the traditions of greedy men?
In return for celebrating christmas, the world offers a few days of pretty decent family time, albeit at high cost in gifts and debt, and which was first observed to celebrate the fall of man and the devil becoming the god of this world. With God, you can have pretty decent family time all year round, for free, with no ulterior motives. It's your choice. If you choose the wrong way and put the traditions of men above the word, don't go blaming God when life turns and bites you.
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
There are many benefits to enjoy going God's way.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
As for me and my house we will serve God, and I don't give a fuck about that freemason prick Dickens and his fanciful stories depicting me as a scrooge. He served his god and I shall serve mine.
