This time of the year has come again. This time is called the festive season in South Africa and the time where families get together, men and women that work in cities away from theirs get back to their homes to reunite with their families. This is the time for spending, where people are buying gifts for friends and families. Businesses are happy, children are happy and the stingy man all of a sudden becomes the biggest giver.
For me, this the most annoying time of the year. The abomination that takes place and the idolatry that goes on during this time is absolutely disgusting. Christmas is the worst form of idolatry and it blasphemes the name of the Son of God Jesus Christ. People would claim to love and serve the Lord Jesus while they do almost everything that the Lord did not command. To erect a Christmas tree and dedicate to the birth of the Lord is absurd to the highest degree. God warned not to follows the tradition of the heathens through Jeremiah the prophet.
“Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.” (Jer 10:2-4)
In the passage quoted above we see the description of what is known today as the Christmas tree. God calls the way of the heathens. These trees are erected in the houses and in churches and are somehow connected with the supposed birth of the Lord Jesus Christ which is not even on the 25th of December to begin with. God will never bless something of which He disapproves. I have never read in the gospels anywhere it made mention of the tree or the significant thereof as far as Jesus Christ’s birth is concerned.This Christmas holiday and the symbols therein have nothing to do with Lord Jesus Christ but instead are promoting another god and another spirit that come to deceive the people.
Be Warned!!! Keep away from idols!!!!
