Whether Christmas means “anointing depart” or not, if people want to celebrate the birth of Christ on Dec 25th, they ‘re free to do so. Everyday is God’s, for the earth is the Lord’s and all its fullness, so giving it to the devil is unscriptural.
Every-Day is God’s Day
Everyday is God’s day, therefore honor Him. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof (Psalm 24:1). Deuteronomy 6:13 says “Honor the Lord your God, worship only him, and make your promises in his name alone.” thus you honor Him by worshiping Him & doing that which is pleasing in His sight on a day when others are doing wickedness. Hence, it doesn’t matter what others do on that day but what the Christian does is what matters. If people want to celebrate the birth of Christ on Dec 25th, I don’t see why that is wrong.
In Spirit and In truth?
If you truly worship in spirit and in truth, you will know that God can actually direct someone to celebrate the birth of Christ just for the sake of calling many to Christ on the day you say they shouldn’t. For God uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;” 1 Cor. 1:27
Be led by the Spirit. If He leads you not to, then don’t do it…but if He leads you to bring people together on that day to not just celebrate but most importantly discuss and understand the purpose of His birth (which brings power) then you are to oblige.
“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:” Col. 2:16
Romans 14:4-6 – “He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord…“. Stop judging your neighbor and focus on Christ. If you don’t want to celebrate Christ on Dec 25th then let it be to you. But don’t impose it on others who want to celebrate the birth of Christ in sincerity of heart. Let the center be Christ and in days or events. “One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.” Romans 14:5
It is now your choice to search for truth yourself…in light of the word. #Seekunderstanding.
Christmas Tree, Tradition?
Do not celebrate for the sake of tradition and because everyone is doing it. Do it purposefully. Also, note that Christmas trees are a no no as they can become idols. But celebrating the birth of Christ is perfectly fine. You can argue over this “if” Christians ‘re celebrating “Christmas” but true believers/Christians do not celebrate for the sake of tradition or “Christmas”, they celebrate the birth of Christ. If we ‘ve a right to celebrate our birthday [even without original birth certificate], then Christ’ should also be celebrated. The focus here is Christ. Anything else is self-imposed worship, false humility, & harsh treatment- Col. 2:21-23 and misjudgement (Colossians 2:16) #think.
Christmas A Tradition?
It is true that nobody knows when Jesus Christ was born to be quite frank with you. However, if people choose to magnify, lift, and raise His name on 25th of Dec, I don’t see any reason why that shouldn’t be. The problem is most people celebrate other things just like the pagans do so because of that even the ones who do the right thing on that day are frowned upon for doing the right thing. The bible says everyday is God’s day, so I don’t believe in giving a day to pagans or some group of people. I believe in also using that day to the fullest to celebrate Jesus Christ. It’s like Halloween, my point exactly is not that people should not praise God or do whatever they want to do on that day, my point is that they shouldn’t celebrate Halloween in the way pagans, witches, etc do.
