I Hate Christmas

I hate Christmas because it has nothing to do with Christ anymore, but it's just the pagan holiday of gift buying, giving the pastor money and going to parties with people you really don't want to be with. I really do hate Christmas.

Maybe you need to change the way you celebrate Christmas. If you don't like going to the parties, then don't. Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ. Celebrate it for Him and not others. Giving gifts is optional.
---Betty on 3/1/09


it does'nt matter if you hate Chistmas,what matters is that Christ was born and died for our sins and you except that.the Bible does'nt tell us the day that Jesus was born for sure,if he wanted us to celabrate it he would have told us somewhere in the bible,so its ok if we do or we don't celabrate.just don't forget why he come to earth and died. and besides people have'nt really been celabrating Jesus birthday for years even tho they claim they are its just been used for a day for them to use in there own way and say its for Jesus birthday.Judy
---judy on 3/1/09


rhonda,all things belong to God--every day is God's day.There is nothing wrong with desiring to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.We do not know exactly when the Lord was born,He may have been conceived in December.I am all for taking things back from the devil that originally belonged to God.If the church aimed to stop people from celebrating a pagan holiday by choosing to celebrate a "Christian"holiday during the same time period-to give people something truly to be Joyous about-prophecy fulfilled in a Saviour..Many still celebrate Christmas season as a Holy Day,and celebrate Jesus.Carnal people and business take advantage and make it something different.Dont throw out the baby with the bathwater.Christmas can be what you make it.

It's easy to understand Col 2:16 ONLY when one entertains THE ENTIRE CHAPTER ...ironically the very chapter warning the pagan Colossian converts is used by self-professing Chritians today in DIRECT opposition of what Paul was teaching these pagan converted Christians

Satan as the great deceiver, father of lies, and god of this world has beguiled men of Gods precious truth

Colossians Chapter 2 is addressing the pagan culture of the Colossians who had MERGED their pagan practices into the life of Christs church ...having more faith in pagan ways then Christ Col 2:8 ...Colossians had as many or MORE practices then Pharisee's of self-denial etc of foods etc that were "works" to their gods
---Rhonda on 2/26/09


Col 2 Paul is explaining to converted Colossians to NOT worry about HOW their Colossian society would view them and their NEW way of life in the church 1Corin 12:27/Col 2:17 ...as these newly converted Christians would be eating drinking and joyously celebrating the Sabbath when their society was practicing self-denial

The main passage in Colossians Chapter 2 is smack in front of all who read it YET beguiled by Satan they are unable to see

Col 2:16-17 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you ...of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come

Gods plan is written in HIS Sabbaths it foretells his plan for mankind
---Rhonda on 2/26/09




Colossians lesson is the foreshawdow of WHAT Gods Sabbaths picture which is his coming Kingdom on earth Matt 6:10 Colossians Chapter 2 magnifies Gods Sabbaths

christ-mass is simply the sun-gods day that has been "christianized" with name of Christ it is hollow without any meaning other than what men assign to this pagan day ...unlike Gods Holy Days which picture his Kingdom

christ-mass is VOID of The Eternal and Christ knowing God forbids mixing pagan ways with his HOLY days
---Rhonda on 2/26/09


wake up-16Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.
Colossians 2:15-17

sounds to me that Christmas is A-OK- for celebrating Jesus's Birth and why He was born unto us!
- most Christians who love Jesus, are not celebrating the pagan aspects of Christmas or Easter- We are celebrating Christ's birth and resurrection..not santa and the Easter bunny!

The others should pick a day in September I guess.
As a human race it is awesome that Christians from all over the world honor the Lord Jesus Christ's birth on that one day!

Oh how we bicker.

james 4:9-11
Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.
1 Peter 5:4-5
And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
Also, Galatians 5:16-26
God bless you Rhonda!
---miche3754 on 2/23/09


...you judge harshly when God's word says you should not ....very harsh and judgmental- displaying bad fruit ...humble yourself.
*****

I HUMBLE myself to The Eternal NOT to mortal men

posters on this blog send people to hell ...tell them they are not saved ...claim others have "bad fruit" ...or they are "judging" ...I don't do any of these instead label me "harsh" lacking anything else to DEFEND your pagan ways?

....you post to be "liked" defending your brand of christianity and ITS traditions ...I post Gods Truth defending GODS HOLY WORD

READ Gods Word very carefully ...The Eternal WILL JUDGE those who carelessly mix pagan days into his Holy ways

Well I was looking into joining this site and this was the second blog I read. I really wish now i had not even logged into this site. Being a Christian to me is Brite and Happy you feel good when you are talking about the Lord and I usually getting a really peaceful feeling. Not with the blog. I pray that God will put his hand on each that need it and feel there hearts with love.

God Bless Each and Have A Wonderful Week
Kim
---Kim on 2/23/09




rhonda,
I am not the one taking it personally or calling names.
Paul says not to judge anyone for esteming one day over another, so I am not.
Celebrating Christmas is all dependant on WHY you are celebrating.
I am simply telling you that you judge harshly when God's word says you should not.
The way you are talking(typing), is very harsh and judgmental- displaying bad fruit.
Sis, you should humble yourself.
God certainly will judge my heart and see that I celebrate because I love GOD not some sun god.
You can't judge on what you see with your eyes. In fact, it is not your place to judge at all.
---miche3754 on 2/23/09


You have a tendency to be a little twisted ...with your strong arming others on this site(calling them false worshipers and such).
******

Miche if Gods Truth in HIS WORD not mine "insults" you then you should take a look at the religion YOU SERVE ...."strong arming" FROM Gods Word or blindly following mens pagan customs?

would you celebrate your christ-mass holiday GIVEN BY RCC if it were in August?

INSTEAD you celebrate it on SAME day as the sun-god ...you don't answer to me ...YOU WILL answer to God someday

God gave man his truth ...devil said let me organize it ...mixing up vile pagan days into Gods Holy Days and self professing christians are blind to Satan ...just like mother Eve
---Rhonda on 2/21/09


willow, to answer your question, YES, I would. Because they would then know that I lower myself and speak kindly. It is hard to tell how a person is speaking truly from the typing.

one should check their "fruits" to see which God they serve
---Rhonda on 2/19/09 -
The true God.
I always consider you my sister in Christ even when we don't agree. You on the other hand say I am not your sister in Christ because we disagree.
Who is displaying the bad fruit, sis?
See Matthew chapter 18 on how to treat your brothers and sisters.

I am not suprized that thomas posted he hates Christmas.

look at all of this bickering

Question:

Would you speak this way to each other if you were face to face?
---willow on 2/20/09


rhonda,
I was talking to jim first of all, not you, AND, I was talking about how he is judging people and for what he said about my son who happens to be only 7 years old.

How is it GOOD fruit to insult a child?

You have a tendency to be a little twisted.
You insult me constantly just because I disagree with your strong arming others on this site(calling them false worshipers and such).
Jesus says to his believers, That we should not offend.
Get over yourself We should not judge people who estem one day over another.
I like your passion of Christ, but you need to lose the hatred, it is not of God.
---miche3754 on 2/20/09


jim,
I know Jesus said we will know who is of him by the fruit they bear.
And right now, brother, yours is rotten.
******

Miche is it gleeful self professing "christian thing" to sit on high horse claiming everyone else's "fruit" is rotten?

I don't claim anyone's fruit is rotten because they worship the sun-god and their "christianity" as taught by their religiousity

Christ not born in December ...Apostles did not record exact day for a reason ...worship of creation NOT the CREATOR with RCC's christ-mass

God gave man truth and the devil organized with his brand of "christianity"

one should check their "fruits" to see which God they serve

jim,
I know Jesus said we will know who is of him by the fruit they bear.
And right now, brother, yours is rotten.

The true birthday of Jesus is actually the end of September.
Jesus is God, not my son. So unlike my son, I don't think Jesus cares as long as I love him and follow his commandments. In fact Jesus says so. "If you love me, you will keep my commands. Love God with your all heart, soul, mind, body and strength. Love your neighbor as you love yourself"
Jesus is not a man that he should lie.
My son on the other hand is a child who doesn't know any better right now.
Brother, you really need to quit condemning people and follow Jesus' commands. Judging isn't your job.
God bless you~
---miche3754 on 2/19/09


December 25 is probably not the strict anniversary of Jesus' birth.

But it is when I celebrate it, with other Christians.

And why shouldn't we?
---alan8566_of_UK on 2/19/09


Lisa, many Catholics and Protestants have been falsely taught that Jesus was born on December 25th. December 25th was the worship of the sun god during the time of the 4th century. Constantine declared December 25th as a day for both Christians and pagan baal sun worshippers as an offical day which included the gift giving and worship that we see today. The early church of the Bible never celebrated Jesus birthday, but because of what Constantine did the church did by the 4th century. The roots are all pagan not Christian.
---Jim on 2/19/09


Jim,

Are you a Catholic? I am one and I have always been taught that December 25 is Jesus' birthday. But I would love to see the reason why his birthday is on September.
I know Christmas is a time of giving and sharing God's love with everyone. I have learned through Religious Education how to give gifts to Jesus is by giving gifts to others, and praying.

God Bless,
Lisa

Try celebrating his birthday 9 months late this year and see if he loves it. I doubt it as well as you know. Also remember to give his gifts to his brothers or sisters. I know that he would enjoy that also.
---Jim on 2/19/09


When it's your birthday do people celebrate it on the wrong day and give your gifts to others? I doubt it.
---Jim on 2/19/09

In answer to this....
My son's real birthday is on July 6th... BUT... we celebrate it on the 4th of July because I am off work and so is everyone else in the family, and he and his friends are out of school.
Does this take away from the fact that we are celebrating his birthday? NOPE! He loves it because everyone can be there.

It is what in the heart, not the exact day.
---miche3754 on 2/19/09


Lisa, Christmas isn't Jesus birthday. Jesus was born in September. Christmas is the birthday of the sun god. Christmas isn't about exchanging gifts as again that is a tradition of the sun god worship. Christians need to worship Jesus instead. When it's your birthday do people celebrate it on the wrong day and give your gifts to others? I doubt it.
---Jim on 2/19/09

Try this for the next Christmas:
Invite God into whatever you are doing for that holiday. Celebrate Jesus' birth since that day is his birthday! Think about what gift giving and receiving means. It's good to give. For the parties, just invite God to come along and see if there's any difference. Remember what Christmas is all about. Try to bring that out in whatever you are doing.

---Rhonda on 2/11/09


You are right. Jesus wasn't born on Christmas, but evey church celebrates it, and I can't understand it either. Jesus was born around Oct. and the 3 kings didn't give him gifts at that time, but when he was 1-3 years old. Christmas, just like Easter and Valentines Day and Halloween are all pagen holidays and God says have nothing to do with the world's ways or follow what they follow, and commands us to follow his holidays in the bible, so I go to a Jewish Messianic church. The Catholic church decided to christianize all the holidays and force the christians to follow it in the 16th and 17th centurys and when they didn't, they martyred them.

Check the fruits and see if you are measuring up. If you aren't, you need ask God to help.
Real Christians don't produce the fruit you are bearing on this site.

And whether you wish to believe it or not, You need go back and study the scripture I gave you. The rcc aren't what YOU say they are.
What you speak against them is hate. That is not of Christ, SISTER!

Allow me to speak planly, Paul warns of another Jesus. it looks good ,it sounds good but its not real. Jesus Christ said, "The world hates me" the point was the world loves christ-mass .... no one sees a problem there? Make the connections, it's really not that hard.

Was Jesus worng about the world hating HIM?

People He's talking to in Matt. 23 is the great Harlot.
Revelations
16:6
.. they have shed the blood of saints & prophets, & thou hast given them blood to drink....
17:6
...I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, & with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus...
18:24
..in her was found the blood of prophets, & of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

Satan has blinded some that they'll pay attention to his left hand ... wont see what his right hand is doing.

RCC isn't Harlot. These people had blood of saints/prophets on their hands before the RCC.

If you did YOUR research, you'll find that there are as many theories about Christmas as there are books of the bible. I've research the pro and cons about this celebration in the late 1960s.

Besides, it's written that you celebrate your way and another person celebrates his way. Each glorifies God in their own way. You don't need to celebrate Christmas the way the majority celebrates Christmas. Scripture does set down principles which should affect the way we celebrate it.

miche3754,
Rev 17 - "...the great whore who is seated on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the inhabitants of the earth have become drunk...on her forehead was written a name, a mystery: "Babylon the great, mother of whores and of earths abominations. And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the witnesses to Jesus. "

When reviewing history over the past 2,000 yrs it's a stretch to see how the kings of the earth committed fornication or drank the wine of Muslims. After John received his revelation, ask yourself, "who has persecuted and killed more saints Islam or Rome?"

Please learn some history about christ "mass"
while youre at it research easter,fat tuesday,halloween the list goes on, eight or nine in all,everyone of them is rooted in old testament Ashtoreth or grove or sun and tree worship systems,christ mass did not show up on any calendar until about 356ad, as far as "we dont do it that way" (Eccl. 1:15, Lev.18:30, Jer.10:1-5(the tree).Just how does a Christian (I use that term loosely )keep a pagan custom, bottom line Christians live in a pagan world , we cant get away from it, Example: today is Wednesday,once opon atime it was wodon's day, wodon was one of many pagan gods, My point is, some of it we cant get away from, stuff like christmass , are easy to get rid of.

I agree with a number of your observations of the RCC and Christmas, however you may want to rethink your definition of a "True Christian".

I look at Christmas like it is 2 different entities. We celebrate Jesus birth (even though he wasn't even born in Dec.) and we celebrate with our families. By giving, spending time with each other--in thanksgiving and love. So I think Christmas is very much about Christ. We are to love our brother as ourselves and we are to give--so thats what we do at Christmas. It won't matter anyway, before too long we will be more worried about how to put food on the table then buying Christmas presents--so don't fret about it.

people have to be TOLD about Jesus and the good news. So the can choose to believe or not.
After you hear the good news, read the good news and believe in the good news..THEN THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN CONVICT YOU. not before.

Rhonda, your hatred towards the RCC is more than obvious.

You should first understand the motives behind what we do and then comment.

Without the RCC, none of you would have even heard about Jesus Christ.

Christ taught us to love each other and not to denigrate each other. Please do that.

I love christmas,for me its not about trees,gifts,lights,any of the worldly things,just as easter is not about candy,rabbits,parades,etc.christmas is about the birth of the savior of the world,easter is about the resurrection of savior of the world.

We all know that The Father gave us the greatest gift of all- Jesus!
And we as people of faith know His birth was historical and prophetic. A great day all creation waited for!

WE honor Jesus fully, His birth, His life, His death and His resurrection as well as His promise to come back!

It is not Just Christ's birth we celebrate Rhonda! and just because we devote one day to honor His birth your King, doesn't me his life is neglected in anyway shape or form.
We honor him every day!

I want to wish the Lord happy Birthday!
And thank you Father for the greatest gift of all! Jesus!

Angel, you are a TRUE Angel.

Yes, Jesus is the reason for the Season. I, as a Catholic, give priority to that event that happened 2000 years ago. All the decorations and good food that I eat are solely to compliment the festivities.

Christmas is the birthday celebration of Jesus and I wish all Christians start celebrating such a happy event. That's when it all started.

Happy New Year.

Hey guys, instead of saying we 'hate' Christmas, why don't we try and do something to help the people that are forgeting the true reason for the season. We CAN help put Christ back into Christmas.

....and others who are not well to do don't have the money to buy gifts for their kids. Others lose their jobs around this time, but in between all this terrible things....
********

Curiously you IDENTIFY WICKED FRUITS of season ...STILL unable to see Christ NOT present because NO FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT

"buying gifts" "spirit of the season" "reason for the season" slick department store marketing NOT Gods Word

blindly following traditions given by men unable to see God HATES heathen man made traditions

WHICH SPIRIT? ...Truth of christ-mass it is given by rcc who christianized sungod NOT the SON of God

merry christ-mass the TRUTH is it means Merry death of Christ

I agree for the first time with Eloy. His comments were well stated.
While many have legalistic views why it is celibrated on the 25th it is motive behind why we believe in a date for His birth. Whether it was April or May, we have at least a day we can honor Him, and so that most of the world who is not saved at least hear about His name. It is also a time of great pain for many who have lost someone in life. The holiday's brings many memories to so many, and others who are not well to do don't have the money to buy gifts for their kids. Others lose their jobs around this time, but in between all this terrible things, Christ birthday reminds us that no matter what happens in our life's Christ will always be with us, no matter what.
---MarkV. on 1/3/09


Continue 2: We as Christians honor Him everyday, but at least we have a date for the One we so love. All other reason why we shouldn't have a date for His birth, are really to stop people from having at least a date for the world to remember who Jesus Christ was. Lately our liberals want to remove Him from our lives, but that is impossible no matter what they contrive or do.
We may lose our votes in keeping Him in our schools, and public places, but He can never be removed from our hearts.

I understand that whomever made this blog has very strong and sensitive feelings about how people are forgeting the true reason for the season. The devil will do anything to make us worldly-minded especially when it comes to the holidays. The children especially are getting to be so addicted to Santa Claus on Christmas that the importance of Jesus Christ is starting to exit their minds which is very unhealthy. After all, their minds are still not quite developed and in the future, we want them to know in their heads that Christmas wouldn't exsist whatsoever if it wasn't for Jesus Christ.
God Bless.

Rhonda:- What do you see when you look in a mirror Beauty or Hate?.
******

must really HATE Gods Truth making sarcastic "christ-like" statements thinking this reasoning proves your pagan traditions of men (John 15:18, Mark 7:7-8, Luke 6:46, Matt 15:8-9, 7:23)

dress up Christ-mass professing love and good AND God STILL HATES all pagan traditions (2Corin 4:4, Jer 10:2-3, Psa. 106:34-39)

if christ-mass was from God NOBODY would celebrate it because it is of the world 2Corin 4:4 everyone does

mocking God observing a pagan day when children were slaughtered for their pagan sungod ...glossing over the horror of this day by calling it christ-mass because you say so ...notice God didn't

Rhonda:- What do you see when you look in a mirror Beauty or Hate?.That same Babe who is dead to you, is Very Much Alive He is YOUR CREATOR. The reminder in Christmas is TO CHANGE Rhonda, God gives usw a 2nd Chance over & over again,and you do need to change dear lady."I see tears and Sorrow as you speak NOT Joy and contentment"and you blame Jesus for it all!! Blessings Dear lady.

I love Christmas because it has everything to do with Christ always. The greatest birthday party in the entire world:
******

bdays honor ALIVE guest who gets gifts ...twist Gods Word lying Wise men giving Christ bday gifts ...TRUTH giving gifts to KING unrelated to birth

BIGGEST bday party world will see is yet to come ...JUST like heathen christ-mass people giving gifts to one another during tribulation

Rev 11:10
....shall send gifts to one another.....

christ-mass is pagan tradition honoring a dead baby in a manger exchanging gifts to one another

...rcc worships a dead baby during this man made tradition christ-mass her daughter PROTESTant churches blindly follow

SEG:- Are you saying I am not worthy?By following His church,His institution,His way to Follow Him and that I have no faith.How do you know that not having ever met me?Your quote is about Jesus's Resurrection read on JN5:28-28If you want to be a true witnes then read JN5:30-34 Belief is faith, but Faith without good works is dead.So you may condemn me all you desire but this you do to your own condemnation.Your faith in Him is in the fulfillment of His Law.
---MIC on 12/29/08


It dawned on me this year that the only thing that Christ wants is "his people" to come home with him on that great and terrible final day of the world.
The gift that we are to give to others is the love,life and knowledge of Christ.
We are to show Christ's love through our actions, our life and in sharing his teachings.
We are to live in example through our lives, taking all measures to be blameless and holy as Christ. Everyday we need to ask Christ to take us on an amazing adventure with him , ask he lead us and speak through us . with this key in place You will be a Christ Mass to others daily!
