Saturday, December 22, 12


Christmas time During this time of year nearly everyone is preparing to celebrate one of the most popular holidays of the year, Christmas!

Saturday, December 22, 12


Christmas We know that Christmas is celebrated on Dec. 25th of every year and that Christmas Eve is December 24th. We also know that on Christmas day, most children and adults are opening presents found under the Christmas tree, eating a delicious meal with their families, and enjoying time spent with friends and family.

Christmas It sounds very fun and exciting but did you know?

Saturday, December 22, 12


However, with all the excitement Christmas brings, it can also bring about damage because it is a pagan holiday.

Saturday, December 22, 12


Lets’s explore! What is Christmas and where did it come from? Many families and the Christian religion says Christmas is actually Christ’s birthday

Saturday, December 22, 12


Did you Know? They use the story of Jesus’s birth found in the bible to explain the reasons behind buying gifts for their loved ones and celebrating the birth of Jesus But, Christmas is found no where in the bible and is not a day commanded by God to be kept

Saturday, December 22, 12


When Christ was born it was a very special occasion. Two adults had become parents for the first time and the parents knew that their child would be someone very special! The baby’s mommy and daddy loved him very much! When Jesus was born he was laid in a manger inside of a barn and wisemen brought him gifts days later. His gifts were gold, frankincense, and myrrh (a lot of people believe since there were three gifts then there must have been three wise men also. Unfortunately, the bible never tells how many wise men there were).

Saturday, December 22, 12


So where did it come from? People wanted a reason to celebrate this man made holiday, so they decided to say that it was Christ’s birthday The bible never says that Christ was born on Dec 25th. No one knows the real birth date of Jesus Also, there is no story of snow and ice in the bible being told about Christ’s birth

Pagans and Christmas Christmas was taken over from the Pagen Winter Solstice Festival season People were already celebrating a lot of things so they decided to add Christmas to the list of celebrations

A man named Constatine and a man name Julius I Saturday, December 22, 12


• There was a man named Constantine who was a Roman Emperor and a Christian when Christmas was first celebrated on Dec. 25th. • A man named Pope Julius I decided that the birthday of Jesus should be December 25th. • Remember, these dates are not in the bible and should not be made up.

Pretty Decorations •

• • •

The Christmas tree could be such a pretty sight. It is decorated in colors of silver, gold, red, and green lights. It has pretty ornaments and lots of glittery garland. Most of all, it has that big shiny star centered right at the top of the tree. In Jeremiah 10:2-5 it tells us that the heathens and their traditions place Christmas trees in their homes. The Christmas tree was not always a very likeable object for children. Some parents did very cruel things to their children near the tree.

Presents, Presents and more presents •

A lot of children believe that their Christmas presents come from a big jolly guy named Santa Clause. It sounds fun to believe that some mystery guy will sneak into your house on Christmas Eve and leave all kinds of gifts for you under the tree.

Saturday, December 22, 12

Do these men look similar?


Jesus and Christmas • But, if it is Jesus birthday, why would Santa Clause leave presents for you? What if you went to a birthday party that was prepared for you and everybody gave gifts to each other and you were left out? Wouldn’t you feel disappointed and left out?

Saturday, December 22, 12


Guess what? Christmas is not a commandment of God, it is a tradition of man!!

Saturday, December 22, 12


What did Jesus say? • The bible states in Matthews 15:9 “But in vain, they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. • Mark 7:9 tells us that if you reject the commandments of God then you are keeping your own traditions.

Saturday, December 22, 12


Confusion with the seasons In Luke 2: 8 the story of Jesus birth tells us that their were shepherds in the field working with their flock It would be impossible for this to happen during the winter season because no flocks would have been in the field

Idols

• If you a ssociate any items with that of God that are untrue, then you have placed them before God and therefore they have become an idol (something you have placed before God.
