I am sure everyone thinks I am anti happy times that so called Christmas brings. As I was growing up there was a real part of me that did not like Christmas simply because in our family no one in our family or our friends gave any mention to the supposed birth of Jesus Christ! All I saw was over indulgence of food and much alcoholic drink and greed. I do not remember any thought of the birth of Jesus Christ. What was so hypocritical to me was the fact that people pinned that name on to the greatest person who ever walked the earth and was willing to go through so much torture and abuse just simply because he loved his heavenly father and he knew the destiny of imperfect man because of Adam and Eve's sinned against their creator.
By Jesus being willing to be transferred into the womb of an imperfect human through holy spirit by his love for his Father, he was able to grow into adulthood and suffered extremely for the love of his heavenly Father and for imperfect mankind. He gave his life for all mankind.
I used to believe the story of Christmas until I started doing research and going to encyclopedias and finding out that the date of December 25th was actually the day when the pagans celebrated the birth oi the Sun and of course we know that pagans are against God's teachings. Never in God's word the Bible does it say when Jesus was born or if we were to celebrate this day.
If you believe in God's word as the ultimate honored word from Almighty God then you yourself needs to look into these facts. I would not repeat to you anything if I did not know they were facts. I believe in honesty in all things! Please believe this is your choice!
I am open to those who are curious and want to learn.
