Christians on Christmas
November 12, 2009 5:15pm CST
Yeah after year christmas comes around and there are discussions as to why religous christians, the devote ones and even those who teach and preach in leadership promote a lie. Everyone knows the bible doesnt tell us the exact date of the birth of Christ. References are littered like a landfill as to why people celebrate christmas; originally to appease the pagans in the Roman empire to convert to the newly approved religion of Christianity. People nowadays mask it's history saying it is a time for family togetherness and giving knowing full well this is one of the most stressful, violent, time comsuming, jealous, and materialistic times of the year, clearly not godlike attributes. You have to wonder if there is a more powerful backer of this holiday than humans. Someone or something that fuels this time of want. It reminds me of the scripture 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 which says that not only wicked men but also Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light. I wonder for what purpose? Probably the same purpose men do it. To decieve.

Most things in the christian religion and its interpretation, aren't literate, but philosophical. We all know its not the truth date of birth of Jesus, but we still celebrate it that day. Humans keep looking for meaning in everything. Before christ, people looked for meaning in ancient religions, people who are not christians look at it elsewhere.. and some look for it in materialistic stuff. I celebrate christmas properly, and I hate materialism. Just because people decide to make out of christmas a materialistic feast,doesn't mean I'm going to let this ruin the best feast of my religion.

Most celebrations and festivals are not based on actual thngs or events but are based on mankinds celebration of his ability to gather the people and build a concensus. One group says this is important another this is important and yet still another this is important. But history shows that whom ever wins the war makes the story. Christmas comes about because the Romans won the war then used the celebration of Christ to capture the followers of Christianity into the empire through modifying their religion to suit their ends.

The birth of Christ is a special celebration for christians. Its an obvious thing to celebrate it. Yeah no one know the exact birth of Jesus, but thats why they fixed an specific date for all christians to celebrate it. And you are right christmas has become more than a religious celebration and has turn on another thing that is superficial.
