Christmas - its true origin in Satanism

A factual account of the origins of Christmas’ pagan ceremonies taken from an encyclopedia by A. Martinez,

To the reader:

This paper is written to that group of people who claim the name of Jesus Christ. It is written for the edification of the churches and not to evangelize the lost. If you have not accepted Jesus Christ, the LORD God Almighty, to be your Lord, and want to be forgiven for all of your sins, then believe on the Lord Jesus with all of your heart, soul, and strength. Trust Him to lead you into the truth. Pick up the King James Bible, read it and believe it! (Read the gospel of Matthew to find what you must do next. If you decide to serve Jesus Christ the Lord in truth and in spirit, continue reading the New Testament and then the old. Serve him with your whole life, and endure unto death) "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." (Matthew 24:13) and again "9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:9-13)

Here is a brief summary of the points covered in this study. See the paragraphs below for more detailed information.


New Pagan Celebration

Old Pagan Celebration

Feast of Saturnalia

It is now called Christmas by those who are deceived (and others who are not so ignorant, AKA "deceivers") about its pagan roots.

Christmas' beginnings come from a pagan feast day know as Saturnalia, established in memory of Saturn's benevolent reign. (Yes, this is the Roman false god called Saturn.)

Christ's Mass

Known today as Christmas, few know or care that this is the old whitewash façade also used on Halloween and Easter

The Old English called it the Cristes maesse or "Christ's Mass". It has been corrupted into today's pronunciation, "Christmas".

Christmas tree

Today, an evergreen tree is killed, taken and fastened to hold it upright, and then decorated with silver and gold spheres.

This practice is described in Jeremiah 10:1-5. (long before Jesus’ birth)

Supposedly endorsed by "saint" Boniface (680-755) - like clockwork, it receives the pagan stamp of approval.


(Dec. 25)

Here in the United States, on this date, almost all religious bodies gather to blaspheme the word of God and ignore the truth.

Nowhere in the bible does it say what day Jesus was born on. (hint hint)

A pope at Rome declared that Christmas should be celebrated on Dec. 25. So what! If he told you to worship Mary, would you?

crèche (baby "Jesus")

Millions of Americans gather a bunch of graven images and set up a "nativity scene"

Not encouraged in the bible, but rather forbidden!

Exodus 20:3-6

Santa Claus

Depending on the country the name & costume change, but the paganism still remains.

Catholic "saint" - "saint" Nicholas

the Magi

(3 wise men)

Children and adults dress up and pretend they are the 3 men going to see the Christ child.

The actual number of wise men is not found in the bible (so call me picky), but the encyclopedia does shed some light on the term "magi" see below.

 DISCLAIMER: Most of this information comes from a secular encyclopedia and the authors mistakenly refer to Catholicism as Christianity. Catholicism is Roman. It is NOT Christian by any means.

Feast of Saturnalia

"The feast of Saturnalia, established in memory of Saturn's benevolent reign, began on December 17. Originally it was observed only one day; later it lasted as many as seven days. Its feasting and gift-giving were forerunners of the Christmas festivities of Christians."

"Saturnalia" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. S-89

They are referring to Catholics NOT Christians. Genuine Bible Christians don't go a whoring after pagan festivals and then claiming that, "God Christianized it!" They rather obey God's command of Revelation 18:4 and 5, "…Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5: For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities."

Christ's mass?

"Christmas (Old English Cristes maesse, "Christ's Mass"), Christian festival celebrated on December 25, commemorates the birth of Jesus Christ and is also a popular secular holiday.

According to a Roman almanac, the Christian festival of Christmas was celebrated in Rome by AD 336. In the Eastern part of the Roman Empire, however, a festival on January 6 commemorated the manifestation of God in both the birth and the baptism of the Jesus, except in Jerusalem, where only the birth was celebrated. During the 4th century the celebration of Christ's birth on December 25 was gradually adopted by most Eastern churches. In Jerusalem, opposition to Christmas lasted longer, but it was subsequently accepted. In the Armenian Church, Christmas was never accepted; Christ's birth is celebrated on January 6. After Christmas was established in the East, the baptism of Jesus was celebrated on Epiphany, January 6. In the West, however, Epiphany was the day on which the visit of the Magi to the infant Jesus was celebrated."

"Christmas" Encyclopedia Britannica vol. II pg. 903a,b

Well it should be clear that it was never clear! The earliest recorded celebration of Christmas on December 25 was 336 AD. That means that the early disciples of Jesus Christ NEVER celebrated that day nor did Jesus ever command it. It was thought up in Rome by a Roman emperor (see the section on "The Date, December 25". These Satanic antichrists claimed to be god. If this isn't enough to convince you, then read on.

Christmas Tree

"Christmas tree, an evergreen, usually a balsam or douglas fir, decorated with lights and ornaments as a part of Christmas festivities. The use of evergreen trees, wreaths, and garlands as a symbol of eternal life was an ancient custom of the Egyptians, Chinese, and Hebrews. Tree worship, common among the pagan Europeans, survived after their conversion to Christianity in the Scandinavian customs of decorating the house and barn with evergreens at the New year to scare away the devil and of setting up a tree for the birds during Christmastime; It survived further in the custom, also observed in Germany, of placing a Yule tree at an entrance or inside the house in the midwinter holidays."

"The modern Christmas tree, though, originated in western Germany. The main prop of a popular medieval play about Adam and Eve was a fir tree hung with apples (Paradise tree) representing the Garden of Eden. The Germans set up a "Paradise tree" in their homes on December 24, the religious feast day of Adam and Eve. They hung wafers on it (Symbolizing the host, the Christian sign of redemption); the hosts eventually became cookies of various shapes. Candles, too, were often added as the symbol of Christ. In the same room, during the Christmas season, was the Christmas pyramid, a triangular construction of wood, with shelves to hold Christmas figurines, decorated with evergreens, candles, and a star. By the 16th century, the Christmas pyramid and Paradise tree had merged, becoming the Christmas tree."

"Christmas tree" Encyclopedia Britannica vol. II pg. 904a,b

Paradise tree? The fall of mankind from God is nothing to be celebrated! Why would anyone want to bring something that pagan into their homes or even be a part of all this garbage. If you truly are a new creature in Christ, don't bring this garbage with you! Wafers are not Christian symbols! They are a symbol of death to hundreds to thousands of real Christians during the dark ages when the Roman Catholic institution reigned throughout most of Europe. And a pyramid! What is not to understand about that?

"One legend says that the custom of the Christmas tree was started by ‘Saint’ Boniface (680-755), while he was a missionary to Germany. One Christmas Eve he told converts that the fir tree pointed upward to the Christ Child, and urged them to take the tree into their homes as a sign of their new worship as Christians…"

"Christmas" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. C-309

Yeah, he also "urged" them to take graven images of the queen of heaven into their homes too! As usual, the heathen traditions of Satan’s own invention have been taken and so called "Christianized" by changing the names to protect the guilty and redirecting the open worship of devils to a god of their own filthy imaginations who gladly receives this junk. (Question: Has the worship that makes use of these things really been redirected? Answer: No.) Just because someone changes the queen of heaven’s name from the queen of heaven (Jeremiah 7 & 44) to Mary, it doesn’t change the god they are worshipping. This is pure bunk! When you aren’t born again and don’t have the Holy Spirit, which manifests himself from the inside out, the pagan then must depend upon an outward show of his religious ‘faith.’ In the Old Testament, Satan was going to be worshipped by a group of unbelieving Jews through a golden calf. Question: Should a true servant of the Most High God try to take the practices of the heathen and act as if these could ever become acceptable to the God of Israel? Answer: God forbid!

"…And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf" and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD…." Exodus 32:4

Question: Did this fool God? Could God ever be glorified in this? Did the Lord receive this evil worship from Aaron’s hand? Was the Lord convinced just because Aaron said, "…Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD."?

"…7And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down: for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: 8They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt." Exodus 32:7-8 [Emphasis added]

So, if you were able to correctly answer all of these questions with a no, why is it that so many religious people gladly embrace a phony pagan satanic white washed unholy day like Christmas? Answer: because they are only religious! Which one are you? "7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Matthew 15:7-9

The origin of this practice of decorating evergreen trees comes straight from the heathen religions, MYSTERY BABYLON to be specific.

"…2Thus 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. 3For 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. 4They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good." (Jeremiah 10:2-5)

You’ll notice the tone that the LORD has taken is identical to the tone taken concerning graven images! If you don’t believe this, just keep on reading Jeremiah 10:6-16. This practice, among others, is as pagan as causing your children to pass through the fire to Moloch. (Leviticus 18:21; 2nd Kings 23:10; Jeremiah 32:35) In ancient Babylon, the evergreen tree was a symbol used in their mystery religion. Those initiated into the mysteries only knew the real meaning. Like freemasonry and other heathen religions, only the "enlightened" ones were privy to this knowledge. The evergreen tree and the pinecone were both worshipped because, it was believed that they had the power of male and female reproduction within them. Just as the symbol of the yin and the yang are worshipped because they believe that it symbolizes their god being light and dark, good and evil. (1st John 1:5) This is the origin of "Christmas trees." Just like the worship of the queen of heaven, (Jeremiah 7 & 44), it predates the birth of Jesus Christ the LORD! This is a satanic and false doctrine and woe unto them who are deceived thereby! It was because of these practices that the Israelites were sold into the hands of their enemies to punish them!

But one will say, "Oh no, we don’t worship the tree. It’s just a decoration to go along with the Christmas season." or perhaps you would say, "It’s for the kids, they don’t know any better." Whose fault is that? (Deuteronomy 4:9; Proverbs 8:13) To those lame excuses, I would say,

" 23Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding." (Proverbs 23:23)

All of these excuses are just another way of saying, "But I like it!" Only Jesus can deliver you from this, if you let him! "Hate the evil, and love the good,…" Amos 5:15, Romans 12:9

The Date, December 25

Question: "Where do "Christians" get this date for the birth of Christ?" Answer: Nowhere biblical! This is proven by the following passage from our encyclopedia:

"‘Christians’ began to celebrate Christmas about 200 [a.d.]. But they observed it on varying dates, because the exact date of Christ’s birth was unknown. In 354, December 25 was declared to be the birthday of Christ, and in 440 the pope at Rome decreed that Christmas should be celebrated on that date. The ‘church’ at Constantinople observed it for some years on January 6."

"December 25 comes only a few days after the winter solstice (about December 22), the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This season had long been a period of celebration among pagans in many parts of the world because it symbolized the beginning of a new year in nature. Christmas thus replaced a pagan holiday with a Christian one, while keeping the same symbolism - the birthday of Christ corresponds to the birth of a new year. It was only natural, therefore, that many of the customs of the pagan midwinter festivals became part of the Christmas celebration."

"Christmas has been a popular festival in ‘Christian’ countries since the Middle Ages. In England, however, the Puritans were so opposed to merrymaking that in 1644 they banned the observance of Christmas. The Puritans of New England also forbade the celebration in 1659. In both countries, these restrictions were later lifted."

"Christmas" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. C-308

In other words, the Puritans stopped caring about being separate from the pagan world (1st John 5:19). They were ceasing to be Puritans! "…Take heed and beware the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees." (Matthew 16:6) The pagan celebration of the winter solstice was representative of the old pagan, Mystery Babylon, Baal worshipping heathen doctrine of worshipping the sun. Since December 22nd is the shortest day, they believed that their god was dying, and as the days began to get longer, they saw this as proof that their god had been reborn, or reincarnated. Thus the gold halo (ring of sunlight) around baby Baal’s head. This is why they display a baby just being born on December 25th! You see, it was not the baby Jesus that was being born on December 25th, it was their sun god, Baal, being born, as witnessed in the now lengthening days. The days were getting longer, and their god was getting stronger. This is why the LORD saw to it that the exact day Jesus was born, as The Son of Man was not written in the bible! God did not want to allow anything pagan tied to that day just as he never referred to his mother as anything else than "woman". He knew that the day he was born would be corrupted into a pagan festival just as he knew that these same pagans would turn around and worship his mother if he even gave them the slightest excuse. He gave them none! In fact, the day that the Lord of Glory left the presence of God his Father, and was born in the likeness of sinful flesh (Romans 8:3) is no day to be celebrated at all! It was a huge step down for the Lord. True Christians are desirous rather to see the Lord glorified as he is in his true word, the KJB (Revelation 4:11). I would dare say that the Devil and his followers gladly rejoiced to see the one who created them and kicked them out of heaven becoming flesh and bone! Nowhere in the King James Bible are we told to celebrate this unknown day! Indeed we are not even told to celebrate our own birthday! The only ones I know of who were celebrating birthdays were king Herod (the guy who had John the Baptist beheaded) in Mark 6:21, and Pharaoh in Genesis 40:20. (Hmmm… here we have two men cut out of the same piece of corrupt cloth celebrating birthdays, consider that!) Devil worshippers celebrate their birthday as one of the two unholiest days of the year. You see Satanism is a very selfish religion. All things are centered on the self, as in fulfilling their own lusts and desires! Anton LeVey even said, "Do as thou wilt shalt be the whole of the law." As you can see, celebrating birthdays is taken from the worship of the Devil. Whether you like it or not, that’s the fact! So to try and blend birthday celebration with the worship of God is evil at best and satanic at worst. It is no better than trying to blend the worship of graven images with the worship of God (see Exodus 32:1-6)

Let's see what another encyclopedia says about the subject.

"Mithra, the Iranian god of light and sacred contracts, is described as being born from a rock, the birth being witnessed by shepherds on a day (December 25) that was later claimed by Christians as the nativity of Christ."

"Christian Myth and Legend" Encyclopedia Britannica vol. 4, pg. 552f

"Christmas, the festival of the birth of Jesus Christ, was established in connection with a fading of the expectation of Christ's imminent return. The Christian festival calendar was thus converted to the Julian solar calendar. The Christmas festival is the Christian revision of the Roman day of the winter solstice - the festival of Dies Invicti Solis (the Day of the Invincible Sun) on December 25. It slowly supplanted Epiphany, which originally was celebrated in the East on January 6 as the birthday of Christ, as the "manifestation" of the heavenly Logos in the flesh. The Fathers of the 2nd and 3rd centuries, such as Clement of Alexandria, Origen, and Epiphanius, contended that Christmas was a copy of a pagan celebration. As the festival of the incarnation of the heavenly Logos, however, Christmas was increasingly entrenched in theology and liturgy under Roman influence during the struggle against Arianism in the 4th century. In Rome the appearance of Christ, the "sun of righteousness" (Mal. 4:2), was celebrated on December 25- in place of the Sol Invictus festival introduced by the emperor Aurelian in the 3rd century - as the festival of victory of Christianity over paganism." [Emphasis added]

"Christianity" Encyclopedia Britannica vol. 4, pg. 499e

Well there you have it folks. Right out of the horse's mouth comes the actual origin of this modern day perversion. It was not the early Christians ( the disciples of Jesus Christ) that came up with Christmas along with December 25th. It was a Roman Catholic response to a pagan day "Christianizing it" with another pagan day.

Crèche, (baby "Jesus")

A crèche is a graven image of a baby in a manger with its’ mother and father. This is not biblical, but of the Devil! One might say, "How can you say that an image of the baby Jesus is evil?" You either believe the bible or you do not. That is all!

" 3Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. [Emphasis added]" (Exodus 20:3-6)

"The crèche was given to the ‘church’ by Saint Francis, who also is said to have begun the custom of singing carols in his native Assisi, Italy. [Emphasis added]" "Christmas" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. C-308.

I hope you caught that! This graven image, which is accursed in the bible, was given to the Catholic 'church' by a catholic canonized ‘saint’. This is not of God, and it doesn’t bother a pagan to have a graven image given by another pagan to be used in a pagan celebration. What’s wrong with this picture?

Santa Claus (alias Saint Nicholas)

"…(early fourth century A.D.), a bishop of Myra, Asia Minor, who became the subject of many popular legends. Nothing is known for certain about him except the fact he was bishop of Myra. Saint Nicholas became the patron saint [emphasis added] of Russia, Greece, and other places and also of sailors and of children. A legendary bishop of ‘Christian’ charity, he is represented in religious art more often than any other ‘saint’, except the [Virgin] Mary. Many [catholic] churches have been built in his honor…."

"Legends tell of Saint Nicholas tossing bags of gold into homes facing starvation, and of his aid to poor servant girls, to lost sailors, and to penniless prisoners. One of the most popular legends tells of three bags of gold he threw into the home of three maidens to save them from a life of shame. From this legend arose the custom of giving gifts to children at the feast of Saint Nicholas, December 6. (Saint Nicholas was often represented as bearing three golden balls, which became the symbol of pawnbrokers.) In New York the English corrupted the Dutch ‘Sant Nikolaas’ into ‘Santa Claus,’ and associated him with Christmas, the traditional English time of giving gifts,"

"Nicholas, Saint" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. N-304

"The most popular Christmas legend is that of Santa Claus, whose name came from Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of the children. Many of the qualities for which Santa Claus is known originated in Clement C. Moore’s poem, ‘A Visit from St. Nicholas,’ beginning ‘Twas the night before Christmas.’"

"Gifts were exchanged during the roman celebration of the Saturnalia, a feast to the god Saturn, held December 17-23. However, gift-giving came to symbolize the gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh brought to the Christ Child by the Three Wise Men, or Magi…."

"Christmas" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. C-308

Yuck! Barf! Gag! I could rest my case here, but let's continue for the sake of thoroughness.

Magi, the 3 Wise Men

"… The story in Matthew (2:1-12) gives few details, but according to tradition there were three wise men - often called the Three Kings - who were named Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthasar. Cologne Cathedral, Germany, claims that it has their skulls." [Hmmm… Dwelling among the dead?] (Mark 5:1-5)

"In ancient Babylonia and Persia the magi were the priestly and learned class. [A deceitful way of saying that they were initiated into the mysteries of Mystery Babylon.] The term also referred to astrologers, who foretold events by the position and movement of the stars. The reputation of the magi declined, and eventually they became wandering jugglers and quacks. The word magic is derived from the name."

"Magi" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. M 51

If you’ll notice the facts that are given away by the author of this entry, the ancient Babylonians, Persians, and I might add, the Egyptians had magi or "magicians" who were referred to as "wise" men. This is found in Genesis 41 and Daniel chapters 1,2, and 4. They are calling the wise men of the bible Magi, because Babylon, Persia, and Egypt all had magicians that they called wise men. The heathen were magicians and astrologers, and since the wise men in Matthew followed Jesus’ star (Matthew 2:1,2) they were branded astrologers and magicians by the world. Astrologers, soothsayers, and sorcerers were and are the enemies of the cross of Jesus Christ. If anyone is involved in these abominations, let them come out as they did in Acts 19:13-20! The world wouldn’t know a wise man from a magician. Never the less, they insist on being blind leaders of the blind and take pleasure in their unrighteous traditions! (Matthew 15:1-9, 14)

Yule and the Yule Log

"… an old Anglo-Saxon name for the Christmas season. It survives in poetical or fanciful usage, and in such words as ‘yuletide.’ The pagans [emphasis added] of northern Europe had a midwinter month named yule, or Jol, and during it held festivals to celebrate the lengthening of days. Some of their observances, such as the Christmas tree and the yule log, were adopted by the ‘Christians’."

"Yule" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. Y-36 [As stated earlier lost people call Catholics Christians]

Again, more proof that this whole pile of traditions and compromises has been taken straight out of the pagan sun worshipping blasphemous doctrines and given a coat of white paint. (Matthew 23:27) From there it has been repackaged and sold by Mystery Babylon the Great (i.e. Roman Catholicism, see Revelation 17 and 18), and from there it is eagerly consumed by all of her daughters. What’s your excuse?

Holly leaves

"The Norse used holly and the yule log to keep away evil spirits." [Emphasis added]

"Christmas" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. C-308

In case you haven't figured it out, this is witchcraft!


"Mistletoe that grew on oak trees was considered sacred by ancient Celtic priests, [emphasis added] who harvested the plants with golden sickles. The custom of kissing under the mistletoe dates to pre-Christian Celtic and Teutonic times in northern Europe." [FYI, Celtics are druid priest, some of the most evil of satanic priests. Pre-Christian is a polite way of saying pagan, ungodly, and satanic!]

"Christmas" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. C-308

"In the British Isles, Scotland and Ireland, the most evil people living in this area of darkness were the Druid priests (known as "MEN OF OAK"). They demanded human blood sacrifices. Their big night was Halloween. In the occult it is called, "Samhain" which is October 31st. All of the little kids going from door to door yelling ‘trick or treat’ had its origin with the druids! On Halloween the druids and their followers went from castle to castle and serf to serf playing trick or treat. The treat from the castle demanded by the druids would be a princess or some woman for a human sacrifice…. If the treat pleased the druids… they would leave a jack o’lantern with a lighted candle made of human fat to protect those inside from being killed by [devils] that night…. When some unfortunate couldn’t meet the demands of the druids, then it was time for the trick. A hex (hexagram) was drawn on the front door. That night Satan or his [devils] would kill someone in that home…" (Spellbound? Chick publications, P.O. Box 662, Chino, CA 91710)

According to the encyclopedia, Druids are, "…the order of priests among the ancient Celts of Gaul (France) and the British Isles. The druids kept their beliefs and rites secret but Julius Caesar wrote a good account of their practices. The druids held religious services in oak groves and regarded the mistletoe growing on oaks as sacred. Followers of druidism worshipped gods that were common in the ancient world. They believed that the human soul is immortal and after death passes into another body." [Reincarnation, hmmm… sound familiar?]

"The druids were teachers, served as judges, and exercised great political influence. [Some things never change! - Ecclesiastes 1:9] They outlawed persons who disobeyed them. The druids knew a great deal about the stars [astrology] and forces of nature [earth, wind, fire, and water are all the ‘forces’ of nature worshipped by wiccans, hmmm…], and were regarded as philosophers…." "Druids" New Standard Encyclopedia pg. D-285.

To sum everything up, it’s like this. The pagan Boniface came to the ignorant and unlearned and said, "Here, take this pagan tree into your homes on the pagan midwinter festival day, as the pope has commanded, and exchange gifts as they did during the Saturnalia. Oh, if your really serious about this heathen stuff, here take the Yule log, mistletoe, and the holly leaves to decorate the graven images of baby Baal and the 3 astrologers you set up!"

There is a saying that we have, "Life’s full of choices." What will yours be?

" For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." (Galatians 1:10)

"23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." (John 4:23-24)

"But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant." (1st Corinthians 14:38)
