I have to agree with MelissaMe, this is completely false. Most people think as hedy mmm does, that is okay to celebrate Christmas just as long as we believe in Christ. As well they believe that celebrating Christmas (no matter what day) is an appropriate form of worship to God. But what does the Bible say? As far as Jesus birthday goes no date is ever mentioned in the Bible. As well, the apostles whom had accompanied Jesus in his ministry, never celebrated his birth on any day let alone the 25th of December, nor did early-day Christians. Rather, in harmony with Jesus' command, they commemorated only his death. (Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26) So was he born on the 25th? The Bible doesn't say. However, it does say in Luke 2:8 that the shepherds were out in the fields and keeping watch over their flocks, which is something they don't do in December. The Bible also tells us that Jesus died at 33 and half years old on Nisan 14. If you do the math that puts his birth in September or October. So what the Bible tells us is that it couldn't have happen in December. Why does that make a difference? John 4: 23-24 tells why. "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers."God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." We have to worship God in truth, Christmas being the birth of Jesus is just not the truth. If you take the time to do a little research, you will find that Christmas has no roots in true Christianity. Many Bible scholars of various religious denominations acknowledge this. The New Catholic Encyclopedia acknowledges: “The date of Christ’s birth is not known. The gospels indicate neither the day nor the month. According to most scholars today, the birth of Christ was assigned the date of the winter solstice (December 25 in the Julian Calendar, January 6 in the Egyptian), because on this day, as the sun began its return to northern skies, the pagan devotees of Mithra celebrated the dies natalis Solis Invicti (birthday of the invincible sun). M’Clintock and Strong’s Cyclopedia says: “The observance of Christmas is not of divine appointment, nor is it of New Testament origin. The day of Christ’s birth cannot be ascertained from the New Testament, or, indeed, from any other source.” Christmas has nothing to do with God or true worship, look it up for yourself.
