    Yes - a Joyous and Blessed Christmas to all...

    The first Christmas gift ever given was from the Father in Heaven...

    John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Сhristmas is pagan holiday. We got to learn the origin of this. Word Christmas is not mentioned in the Bible. At Colonial times the Puritans avoided this pagan celebration. So did our founding fathers, and in the earliest days of our nation. Christmas was adopted by the notorious Great Whore who is the Catholic Church and her antichrists, the popes.

    I have seen people like you before, but I have always been charged admission.

    I'm not a Pagan, I don't worship the Christmas tree. I am a former Catholic (technically excommunicated) so I know your arguments which I reject because I do none of the Pagan worship of the day of Mithras and have rejected the authority of the Pope(s) and His Magisterium as well.

    BTW There were gold covered cedar and fir trees in the Solomonic temple.

    Christmas means Christ-mass (the sacrificial offering of Christ),
    but contrary to the Catholic teaching there was only ONE sacrificial offering (mass) at Calvary to forgive sin once for all.

    Puritan is not in the Bible, therefore you must be a pagan.

    I am not a pagan worshiper. Since I trust in Christ, I can't be a pagan. For paganism, go and talk to Mormons.Biggrin

    For me, Christmas is Christ centered, therefore it can't be a pagan celebration.

    It is too bad that this troll is able to ruin a thread like this.

    You guys need to leave that thing alone. It is not serious nor genuine it is only working to aggravate people.
