I don't observe Xmas due to its pagan origins.
I told my pastor that, and I told him that his Hero, Bush, is an evil man. I guess that's what led him to take me off the church membership rolls.
I guess he's mad because I was saying that I cannot see how someone can believe the Bible and justify Xmas-keeping. And the fact
that I called Bush an evil man--did I mention that? He buys into the lie that Bush is a true conservative, and I know otherwise.
At the end he asked me, "So you're right and everyone else is wrong?" :bnghd: What about that verse, let God be true and every man be a liar? I
said, I believe what the Bible says. I let that speak for itself. But if he wants to look at it that way, let him. He accused me of acting
un-Christian, and all I can say is, Pot, meet Kettle!
Then there's that verse, a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. And there's learn not the ways of the heathen (Jeremiah 10:1-5).
On top of that, December 25 is the birthday of a pagan god. Jesus was born no later than mid-October. I don't deny Jesus was born of a virgin,
crucified, spent three days and three nights (Wed-Sat) in the grave, and rose again, and is at the right hand of the Father in Heaven. What I do deny
is a) he was born December 25 and b) it's okay to use paganism to ostensibly worship God.
The only thing Xmas is good for is holiday pay for my husband.
