"The world celebrates the Lord's Birthday and doesn't invite him."

An amazing quote from a VERY wise woman - My mother on finding Christmas wrapping paper that contains Christian imagery.
---Pharisee on 9/22/07

Each person is entitled to what they do, but God never intended us to celebrate jesus' birthday otherwise he would give an exact date,not just he was born in a stable, but he wants us to remember him around Passover when he died. Christmas is stil la Pagan holiday no matter how you spin it.

I am very saddened with the fact you all believe our Lord n Savior's birthday is as u say. Where in the bible does that say. Tammus the son of Nimrod was born on this date. When he grew up, he married his own mother 4 she was the most b.u.tful woman then. Gross...OUR LORD DESERVE BETTER THAN THIS...

Virginia, you make me smile. I don't know if they have their cake and eat it, too, in God's Kingdom. I'm thinking the oven is down below. God can do anything He wants, I'm sure He and Jesus have many special times together.

Paul and them dudes expected Jesus to come back in their lifetime, so didn't celebrate Jesus birthday, don't you imagine?
I IMAGINE Jesus and the angels enjoy the world's celebration of His birth each year.
But that may be just because I enjoy my birthdays, no evidence but who knows!

I Love the theme of Christmas, It repesenting the Birth of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, But shouldn't every day be treated like Christmas? In other words, Jesus should have our FULL Honor and Attention EVERY DAY, not just on His Birthday. God Bless!

court5565, as a Christian you should not have a dsignated time of year to "get beck to the roots" this claim is rediculous. Christianity is a state of existence, not something you leave and come back to depending on times and seasons. The Pharisees didn't see any problem with making inference from scripture either.

You know i have seen all of these arguments before. How about this for a different view point. though christmas may not be supported by scripture, the celebration of christmas is a time of year for us as christians to get back to the roots of what we believe. Love! God is Love, and at this time of year we celebrate Love as well as the birth of our Lord Jesus christ. why argue the rightness of it?

Why do we give everyone gifts when we are celebrating Jesus' birthday? Does anyone give the whole family gifts everytime someone has a birthday?

We do share a few gifts on Jesus' birthday and we do have a birthday cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.

Eloy, how did you determine the timespan from the birth to the Magi visiting The King.? Is it based on the star being in the sky that he Magi were responding to?
---Ryan on 12/18/06

eloy there is no evidence that it was December 25, although it very well could be, i'm pretty sure scholors say he was probably born nearer to July
---mark on 12/18/06

.ryan, you do not speak the truth. Biblically, the magi came from the east to Bethlehem of Judea, on December 25th, 5 B.C., in the second hour of the night, and when they had come into the house, they saw baby Jesus with Mary his mother, and fell down and worshipped Christ God Jesus who became flesh; and they gave up to him gifts: gold, olibanum, and sweet-smelling myrrh. This was the first Christmas recorded in the Bible.

What were the traditional birthday celebrations of National Israel. Funny thing, I never saw Paul, the disciples or Christ Himself celebrate His birthday. The christmas celebration of the birth of the Messiah is NOT supported by scripture.
---Ryan on 12/17/06

We usually sing Happy Birthday to Jesus, and blow out the candles on his cake.
