    Read this interesting article/blog by New Testament scholar Andreas Kostenberger then answer the poll.

    "Any of you ready for a “Puritan Christmas”? Be careful now, because—some of you already guessed this—a Puritan Christmas is in fact—no Christmas at all." -SOURCE

    47 views and only 6 people have an opinion on this? I just can't believe that.

    This is not some side issue. This is a big deal. Should Christians celebrate Christmas? If so should we insist that the lost world do the same? Do we have a Biblical basis for our position? This is important folks. Mainly in a day when Christians are being forced into the closet (while the gays come out) and when Christmas is under attack (or so say some).

    No. Mass is for Roman Catholics.

    It makes sense for the world to celebrate Christmas.

    There is no Biblical basis for honoring Christ's birthday with a mass. The only scripture about this "holy day" is in Jeremiah 10.

    Modern Christmas

    The Puritans are an excellent example of why there needs to be a strict separation beteen chrurch and state, from both directions.
