If Christmas is a Pagan Holiday wonder why Famous Tv Preachers still celebrate it?

Also wonder if the Famous Tv Preachers knew the history where Christmas came? We all know Jesus was not born on Dec 25th. Is having a dinner and exhanging gifts with family still wrong without all the decorations and Christmas tree?

  1. Even if it did come from a pagan holiday, I think Jesus still appreciates our praising Him and celebrating His birthday, as long as we don’t forget the reason we are celebrating.

  2. Yes you are correct Jesus was not born on Dec 25th, and also TV preachers do and say what ever the public favors. Now with the exchanging of gifts around the holidays will give people the thought that you do celebrate Christmas, but is it bad? That is all in perspective, personally I don’t celebrate any holidays( I’m still Christan), but that that does not make me or you an Atheist. If you feel fine with it then go ahead.

  3. Christmas is NOT pagan. It is the day that was chosen to honor the birth of Jesus Christ, who is very clearly of Christian mythology. Some pre-existing cultural traditions were adopted into the celebrations of Jesus – so what? Each new developing culture adopts from previously existing cultures. Whether Jesus was actually born on Dec. 25th (if he existed at all) is neither here nor there. Whether the church chose this day to help draw converts from their already existing pagan cultural winter solstice/sun god celebrations, I don’t know and really don’t care. No one group owns exclusive rights to the month of December, or decorating with evergreens, or exchanging gifts, singing songs, feasting with friends and family, etc. It’s time people got over this what-belongs-to-who mentality during the holiday season and uphold the spirit of their respective holidays, live as a good example of their beliefs. I can celebrate Yule for what it means to me, and a Christian can celebrate Christmas for what it means to them, and we have no issues, nothing to argue about.

  4. Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, God the Son.
    The angel said to them,
    “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.”
    And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
    “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
    (Luke 2:10-14)
    Christmas is in no way a pagan holiday.
    No one knows the exact day when Jesus was born. If a date close to the winter solstice was chosen for Christmas to make conversion of pagans to Christianity easier then what is the harm of that? One could probably find a pagan holiday close to any date on the calendar.
    With love in Christ.

  5. The Preachers and those that worship the Lord with this type of festival are blind to the truth of the Word.
    The truth is present in His Holy Word:
    “Do not worship the LORD your God in the way these pagan peoples worship their gods” (Deuteronomy 12:4).
    “So a message was sent to the king of Assyria: “The people whom you have resettled in the towns of Israel do not know how to worship the God of the land. He has sent lions among them to destroy them because they have not worshiped him correctly” (2 Kings 17:26).
    ““““““““
    No matter what the Roman church teaches, December 25 is and always has been used for the birthday of the pagan’s sun god. The Roman church claims she chose this date in order to persuade the ancient pagans to join the new religion of Christianity . . . But, is this tactic necessary Now?

    No, I don’t think that having a dinner and exchanging gifts with family is wrong without the decorations and a Christmas tree.
    BUT . . .
    We belong to the Most High God and He has spoken.
    Be Blessed:-)
