God came down from Heaven and became one of us.

Let us remember why we celebrate Christmas.

Merry Christmas!




Isaiah 53:3-7 (written around 700 years before Christ was born)
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth

Matthew 24:44
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Revelation 22:20
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

His birth date is not 12-25. 12-25 is a pagan festival day like Fenrir said above.

Jeremiah 10
2 Thus 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.

3 For 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.

4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

Creates universe, creates people all from himself. Then creates one person as himself and the other people he created kill that person. So we celebrate his birth with a fat guy in red suit, decorated trees, and shopping. Weird.

You need to go back to school and develop some reading comprehension skills. The Bible says that god created man in his image (likeness), not from himself. Nothing in the Bible says that god created "one person as himself." Jesus is god's son, not himself. How's is that so difficult to understand? The other stuff - Christmas, Christmas tree, are pagan symbology used by Constantine to increase his base of donors to increase the church's wealth by bringing in non-Christians.

The very first line in this thread is.

"God came down from Heaven and became one of us. "

OP is looking for that good old fashioned christian persecution or he would have gone to the forum called "Religion". He is a MF troll. Don't feed him.

Merry CHRISTmas to you too!

It is a time for reflection.

No, that was my reason.

I've gone to Christmas Mass once with my in-laws, I don't ever remember the holiday really being tied to religion, just the fun commercial parts of it like the tree, Santa, food, and the presents.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:38:58 PM EST
I wish people could post something as simple and kind as Merry Christmas and not have a bunch of people shit all over it.

Merry Christmas Op and everyone else too.

That makes sense. So, you don't consider Christmas to be a Christian holiday?

I agree. Unfortunately the OP is constantly trolling GD with his religious posts and neither his post nor intention was a simple and kind Merry Christmas.

That said, Merry Christmas back to you Jim.

It totally is, look at the name of it.

We aren't religious though, so we just have fun cutting down and decorating the tree, doing presents for the kids, having good food. It's a fun holiday.

He posts religious stuff here from time to time, and because it is GD, people of various opinions respond. And, invariably, a few Christians feign surprise that a thread in GD would draw in such differing views and critiques.

He's trolling' for Jesus.

It's the opposite of that other group that also call themselves Christians, but where men become god.

You shit on those too.


Also, the militant Catholics hate it when Protestants post there, so they'll do their best to get things locked. You can't even share the Gospel in the Religion forum without it getting locked.

God=Jesus=Holy Spirit.  The three are one. 
Matt 28:19 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” 
That name is Jesus Christ. Singular, not plural.

 Keep in mind this is the same channel that featured M5 Stewart tanks in a show on WWI.


BTW. Saturnalia was between Dec 17 and 23 (it changed over the years), yet from the clues in the Bible, we know that the Star of Bethlehem was a conjunction of Jupiter and Venus, and those clues show us that the Magi visited Christ on the 25th of December, although Christ was born on Rosh Hashanah.
