Christmas is God’s answer to Solstice

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. – Isaiah 9:2

Let the Son shine into your heart

Solstice is the darkest part of the year in the northern hemisphere. The days become troublingly short, with night falling before afternoon is over. For those with “seasonal affective disorder” it can be a time of dangerous heavy depression.

The Church chose the period near Solstice to replace the pagan bacchanal celebrations with holy gatherings to honor the Nativity of Jesus Christ

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
– John 1:1-5

Very true. A light shining in the darkness. From no room at the inn, to a God who welcomes everyone. Merry Christmas one and all.

We are living in darkness, and we know that there is something woefully incomplete and imperfect about our fallen human nature. The doctrine of Original Sin is the only dogma, to my knowledge, that we have any empirical evidence for. As a mere mortal, I cannot understand my role, my part or my responsibility in Adam’s and Eve’s sin; Yet we do take on faith that God wanted humanity to share in His Creation as stewards. We can reasonably assume that had Adam & Eve not sinned, someone else would have. But we can reasonably assume that, had no one… Read more »

“Christmas Originally Was a Celebration of the Conversion of Pagan Germans to Christianity”

“… the actual origins of Christmas were based on the conversion of Germanic pagans to Christianity, not necessarily a celebration of the literal day of Christ’s birth on the winter solstice:”

From Jimmy Akin, “9 Things You Need to Know About Christmas“: No matter how many times you hear Sheldon Cooper (or anyone else) say Christmas is based on a pagan holiday (whether Saturnalia, Sol Invictus, or anything else), we simply have no evidence of this. If you read the writings of the Church Fathers, you do not find those who assign Christmas to December 25th saying things like, “Let’s put Jesus’ birthday here so we can subvert a pagan holiday.” (Not that subverting pagan holidays is a bad thing.) They simply don’t do that. The ones who say Jesus was… Read more »

I will NOT be finding Johnathan Cahn on youtube. A false prophet is a man who makes a prophecy which doesn’t come true. You go and look up all his ridiculous blood moon books and videos and see what did not come to pass.

Hi, old bat: Do you seriously think that in our secularized, post-Christian (so said Obama) America where satanism is now a cool thing, Jesus Christ our Lord really has issues with Christians who celebrate His birthday on December 25th? Seriously? This is your conception of God as a deity that petty? I can only imagine what perverse satisfaction you derive from disputing which day really was His birthday — a day that you don’t know either, for all your protestation. I truly feel sorry for you. That being said, I send you my sincere and warm wishes for a very… Read more »

James 1:17, KJV: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” … James 1:17, NLT: “Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens.

actually, xmas was made up by the catholic church. as is easter and all all saints day. they “christianized” pagan celebrations. when were we told to do that? jan 1st is the day catholics celebrate Jesus’ circumcision. the jews circ on the 7th day. count back 7 days from the 1st of jan and you get 25 dec. hence they declared that Jesus’ birthday. nice that it is really near the winter solstice, too. we dont know the day Jesus was born, but almost certainly NOT 25 dec. maybe feast of trumpets, maybe in the spring. this is a totally… Read more »

Jesus gave the bishops of the Catholic Church the authority to teach and to declare holy days, to bind and loose things on earth, it’s that simple. Does your church have bishops?

The greatest betrayal of Christ Jesus since Judas’ kiss.. Trump’s “SUPER SUPERIORITY” Executive Order for Jews. The order will effectively interpret Judaism as a nationality, not just a religion, to trigger a federal law penalizing colleges and universities, and soon expand to cover Worshiping CHRIST since Judaism HATES Christ. For the first time since Emperor Constantine recognized Christianity in the 300th Year of Our Lord, Christians are relegated to SECOND CLASS CITIZENSHIP. 1700 years and JUDAS ISCARIOT again betrays CHRIST. The first step in legalizing State sponsored Christian Persecution. Trump has set the legal precedent for the subjugation of Christianity.… Read more »

You are reading too much into this IMO. Trump’s exec order simply codified long-existing precedent, that Jews are a nationality/race. The Jews, not Jews generally but as Henry Ford would have said The Big Jews, are rather fluid about this issue of race/nationality or religion, historically opting for whatever serves their interests at the time
