"RESURRECTION is the great truth which is signified. Christ rose from the dead on 'the first day
of the week,' that was of necessity the eighth day."
"The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the ultimate new beginning. In the perfect Wisdom of God, it occurred on Sunday, simultaneously the First Day and the Eighth Day of the
And Why We Meet And Worship On The First/Eighth Day Of The Week:
"1 Early on THE FIRST (EIGHT) DAY OF THE WEEK, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that
the stone had been removed from the entrance.19 On the evening of that FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK, when the disciples were together,
with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!"20 After he said
this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord." (John 20)
"7 On the
FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next
day, kept on talking until midnight.... " (Acts 20)
"After EIGHT DAYS His disciples were again inside, and Thomas
with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, "Peace be with you." 27 Then He said to Thomas, "Reach here with your finger, and see My hands
; and reach here your hand and put it into My side ; and do not be unbelieving, but believing."28 Thomas answered and said
to Him, "MY LORD AND MY GOD!" 29 Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed
are they who did not see, and yet believed." (John 20:26-31)
Ten Ways To Make A Holiday A True Holy Day
The Following Points Are Links That Connect To Its Explanation:
1) No Other Jesus Will Do! (2 Cor. 11)
2) Don't Embrace The Shadow Or Major On Minors
3) Don't Cast Your Pearls Before Swine
4) Let The Master Be Your Only Master
5) 'This Little Light Of Mine, I'm Gonna Let It Shine.'
6) Do the Do's And You Will Be Less Likely To Do The Don'ts
7) Teach The Children The Meaning Of The Holy Day
8) Thou Shalt Judge
9) Don't Throw The Baby Out With The Bathwater
10) Does He Have Your Attention?
1) No Other Jesus Will Do!
This Is Of First Importance, Above All Else.
"But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the
serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and
pure devotion to Christ. 4 For if someone comes to you and PREACHES A JESUS OTHER THAN THE JESUS WE PREACHED, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different
gospel from the one you accepted, YOU PUT UP WITH IT EASILY ENOUGH....For SUCH MEN ARE FALSE APOSTLES,
deceitful workmen, MASQUERADING as apostles of Christ. 14
And no wonder, for SATAN HIMSELF masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade
as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve." (2 Cor. 11:1-15)
I've Experienced This My Whole Childhood And Part Of My Adulthood Until I Walked Away Due
To The Preaching Of Another Jesus And The Gullibility Of The Hearers In My Family.
Will The Accused Please Take The Stand?
2) Don't Embrace The Shadow Or Major On Minors
If The KJV Was Good Nuf Fer The Apostle Paul, It's Good Nuf Fer Me
Christmas Time For Me Was About Majoring On The Minors And Minoring On The
Excuse Me, I Have Just One More Question
Not A Prophet, A Non Profit
Then There's The Jewish Wannabes At Christmas
The Fervor That Jewish Wannabes Pursue The Shadow Rather Than The Christ Is Astounding. They
Will Argue The Pagan And Catholic Origins Of Holidays But Wink At The Jewish Feasts Where Millions Of Unbelieving Jews And
Believing Jewish Wannabes Gather To Celebrate A Coming Messiah That The Unbelieving Jews Rejected The First Time Around. (Zechariah 12:10-14)
Jewish Wannabeism Sure Makes For Some Strange Bedfellows.
"For IN CHRIST ALL THE FULNESS OF THE DEITY LIVES IN BODILY FORM, 10 and you have been given
fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. ...Therefore do
not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious
festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17
THESE ARE A SHADOW of the things that were to come; THE REALITY, HOWEVER, IS FOUND IN CHRIST." (Colossians 2:9,16,17)
The Jewish Wannabes Will Even Listen To Unbelieving Karaite Jews Tell Them What The Gospels
That The Karaites Don't Believe, Mean In Hebrew, And Tolerate Their New Ageism Because Of Their Misplaced Emphasis On All
Things Jewish, But Condemn Christians For Celebrating Christmas.
You're A Religious Wannabe To One Degree Or Another If You:
These Jewish Wannabes Seem To Be Trapped Into Legalism Which Presupposes That We Are Still
Obligated To Observe The Torah Rather Than Love, The Shadow Rather Than The Shadow Caster And Whenever The Messiah Is Diminished
You Have A Resulting Increase In What Man Has To Do To Take Up The Slack. This Is True Of The Cults As Well. Diminish Who
Christ Is Then Man Has To Fill In Where His Saviour Falls Short. Jewish Wannabes Just Worship A Shadow That Cannot Do Much
For Them At All.
When Paul Spoke Of Cutting People Slack At Their Level Of Maturity In Romans Fourteen I Believe
He Was Referring To Actual Jews Coming Out Of Judaism Not Gentiles Who Wannabe Jews.
In Christ We Are Complete, In His Shadow We Are Incomplete (Colossians 2:9,10) And Therefore
Do Things That Incomplete People Do, Like Major On The Minors And Minor On The Majors, Push The Torah Rather Than Love, Touch
Not, Taste Not, Don't Handle....
If You Are A Christian, Perfect Or Not, The Above Mentioned Verses Are What You Should Be
Should We Major On The Minors, And Minor On The Majors?
What Happens When Christians Strain At Gnats, Swallow Camels, Embrace Shadows, Major On The
3) Don't Cast Your Pearls Before Swine
not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then
turn and tear you to pieces." (Matthew 7:6)
I'm Leary Of Considering Anyone A Dog Or Pig But There It Is. How Can I Determine A Dog Or
A Pig Unless I Judge?
Interestingly The Verses Right Before These Verses Are:
not judge, or you too will be judged. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged,
and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3
"Why do you look at the SPECK OF SAWDUST in your brother's eye and pay no attention
to the PLANK IN YOUR OWN EYE? 4
How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there
is a plank in your own eye? 5
You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove
the speck from your brother's eye." (Matthew 7:1-5)
Here Jesus Isn't
Saying That Whenever You Judge You Have A Plank In Your Eye While Your Brother Only Has A Speck, He Is Saying Don't Judge
IF You Have A Plank In Your Eye And Your Brother A Speck. In Other Words Don't Judge If
You Are Worse Off Than The Brother You Are Judging. But To Know Who A 'Dog' Or A 'Swine' Unworthy Of Your Pearls
Is, You Must Judge?
If Your Efforts To Get The Christ Into Christmas Fails In Your Family And You're Looked At
As A Radical Fanatic For Speaking The Obvious, Then You Can Always Do It Correctly At Your Own Home.
My Wife And I Have Been Condemned By Family And Relatives For Retreating To Our Home For
The Holy Days. 'Well, If You Were Loving, You Would Endure The Holiday With Us.
They Refuse To See How Christ Told Us To Respond To Those That Don't Receive The Good News
From Us, Frowning At Our Christian Presents, Picking Up Christian Tracts After Us So No One Gets Them.
"Whatever town or village you enter, search for some
worthy person there and stay at his house until you leave. 12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting. 13 If the home
is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. 14 If anyone will not welcome you or
listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town. 15 I tell you the truth, it will be more
bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town." (Matt. 10:11-15)

"COMING TO HIS (JESUS') HOMETOWN, he began teaching
the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. "Where did this man get
this wisdom and these miraculous powers?" they asked. 55 "Isn't this the carpenter's son?
Isn't his mother's name Mary, and aren't his brothers
James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren't all his sisters with us? Where then did this man
get all these things?" 57 AND THEY TOOK OFFENSE AT HIM. But Jesus said to them, "ONLY IN HIS HOMETOWN AND IN HIS OWN HOUSE
IS A PROPHET WITHOUT HONOR." 58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their
lack of faith." (Matthew 13:54-58)
Jesus Then Left And Went Where People Would Listen. I'm Sure That There Were Those Out There
That Claimed He Was Being Unloving For Not Casting His Pearls For Them To Rip To Shreds, But He Was Love Incarnate And This
Is What He Did.
4) Let The Master Be Your Only Master
Now Here's An Area I Need Work On. When That Good Smelling Turkey, Cranberry Sauce And All
The Fixins Hit My Nose I Am Determined To Fully Enjoy It.
This Is My Thorn In The Flesh. (2 Corinthians 12:7-10) I Sometimes Eat Christmas Dinner Like There Is No Tomorrow. Then I Need To Be Carted Off In A Wheel Barrow.
However, This Year I Am Committed To Watch Myself While Still Enjoying The Meal And Thanking God, My Wife And The Turkey For
So Here's A Simple Thought During The Holy Day:
Eat When Your Hungry, Stop When Your Hunger Is Satisfied And Give Your Brain The Time To
Register That Your Hunger Has Been Satisfied By Eating Slowly And Thinking About Christ.
When I Was In The Navy Over Thirty Years Ago, I Was Placed With A Group Of Fellow Sailors
And We Were Forced To Hang Over The Side Of The Ship From Early Morning To Late Evening, Seven Days A Week.
When We Were Given Our Lunch And Dinner, We Were Only Given Fifteen Minutes To Eat It And
Then We Were Ordered To Be Back Over The Side Painting The Ship.
This Meant That You Had To Shovel Your Food In Your Mouth And Not Wait To See How Much You
Well, After Three Months We Staged A Mutiny And Refused To Do The Work Anymore, One Guy Went
Straight To The Executive Officer And The Group Was Disbanded.
I Seem To Have Never Recovered From That Way Of Eating Though. I Need Divine Help On This
Now Let Me Add, You Skinny People Aren't Off The Hook On This One Either. Many Years Ago,
I Had A Christian Brother That Rebuked Me For Being Overweight. He Was Skinny And Arrogant About All Things. But What He Forgot
About Was That I Had Been With Him At Buffets And He Eats Three Times As Much As I Do.
So Did God Say, Don't Be Overweight Or Avoid Gluttony, Even On The Holidays?
The World Is Into Counting Calories Or Being Skinny And If It Was About That Then We Should
Conclude That People In The World Are Our Example Because They Got This Down Better Than We Christians Do.
Bars You Gots To Drive To, But The Fridge Is Only A Hop, Skip And A Jump Away.
This Arrogant Brother Was Skinny And Obviously Had A Metabolism Or Activity Rate Much Higher
Than Most, But Wrongly Concluded That God Said Being Skinny Is The Goal.
Paul Said: "Everything is permissible for me"--but
not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible for me"--but I WILL NOT BE MASTERED BY ANYTHING.
13 "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"--but God will destroy them both."
(1 Cor. 6:12,13)
I've Been To Christmas Celebrations Where You Would Think That There Were Only Two Choices,
Either To Eat As Much As Possible Or Be Anorexic And Nauseating While Fearing Food. These Were Two Extremes That Are Equally
The Goal Is To Be Like Christ, Let Him Be Lord Of Every Area Of Our Life And Nothing Else.
This Is A Lifelong Journey No Doubt. Serving God Is A Lifelong Pursuit, But Some Aren't Even Trying.
"NOT THAT I have already obtained all this, or HAVE
ALREADY BEEN MADE PERFECT, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ
Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But ONE
THING I DO: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward
in Christ Jesus. 15 All of US WHO ARE MATURE SHOULD TAKE SUCH A VIEW OF THINGS. And if on some point
you think differently, that too God will make clear to you." (Philippians 3:12-15)
Those That Don't Take This View Or Struggle To Serve God Are Not Christians.
Moderation Means That You Do Eat But Not Too Much. You're Not Afraid Of Food But You Don't
Treat It Like Your Only Friend Either. God Doesn't Say Get A Skinny Operation To Be Skinny, He Said Don't Be Mastered By Anything
But The Master. That Means Food Or Fear Of Food....
"Because what she wants is smaller and less costly than what has been set before her, she never recognises as gluttony
her determination to get what she wants, however troublesome it may be to others. At the very moment of indulging her appetite
she believes that she is practising temperance. ...If challenged, she would say she was doing this to avoid waste; in reality
she does it because the particular shade of delicacy to which we have enslaved her is offended by the sight of more food than
she happens to want. The real value of the quiet, unobtrusive work which Glubose has been doing for years on this old woman
can be gauged by the way in which her belly now dominates her whole life." (C.S. Lewis)
Gluttony Of Delicacy
My Wife And I Know A Woman That Went From Being Overweight, To Skinny Surgery To Being So
Obsessed And Afraid Of Food That She Has Frightened At Least Three Other Younger Family Members Into Being Anorexic And Looking
Like Holocaust Survivors As Well. They See The Rest Of The World Through A Food Strainer.
Moderation: 'Avoidance Of Excesses Or Extremes' (New World College Dictionary)
This Means Not Only The Excess Of Food Consumption But Also The Excess In The Opposite Direction
Of Being Afraid Of Food And Avoiding Food. This Woman Even Would Praise These Men Like Dead Trees Walking For Doing Such Things.
"Blessed is the man who DOES
NOT WALK IN THE COUNSEL OF THE WICKED or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. 2 But his delight is
in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 He is like
a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its
fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers."
Where Biggest Loser Got It Wrong.
My Wife And I Watch Biggest Loser And Enjoy It, While Letting It Inspire Us In Our Eating
Habits And Exercise.
However, The Way These Trainers Train These Big Losers Are Setting Them Up For A Fall.
No One Is Going To Train Like That On Their Own Or Be Changing Up The Exercise Routines Like
These Trainers Do.
One Must Do What They Can Maintain For The Rest Of Their Lives.
The Way They Workout On The Biggest Loser Cannot Contribute To Long Term Weight Loss.
Integrating Exercise Into Ones Daily Activities Is The Ideal. Those With Carpentry Jobs Are
Blessed And Have The Edge Over Us With More Sedentary Lifestyles.
The World Has Vascillated Between Thinking Marilyn Monroe Was Attractive To Thinking Audrey
Hepburn Or Ally McBeal Was. From Voluptuous To Bulemic. Models Modelling Clothes That Only They And Women On Speed Can Wear.
I Knew Two Women During My Inner City Ministry Days That Were Slightly Overweight. They Gave
Into The Pressure Of The World i.e. Tely, Daughters...To Be Skinny And They Resorted To Drugs To Accomplish It. They Got Skinny
All Right, But Also Got Screwed Up In Many Other Ways In The Process. They Often Haven't Even Got To The First Step In The
Healing And Deliverance Process Of Admitting They Have A Problem Because They Often Don't Think They Do. They Don't Suffer
From Their Problem, They Enjoy It, Basque In It, And Make It Their Whole Identity.
They Think They've Gotten The Victory Over Food When Hopefully They Someday Find Out That
Now They Fear Food. Anorexics And Bulemics Often Think Everything Is Progressing Nicely But Want More Weight Loss. They
Don't Even See That They Have A Problem. Ask My Wife About Her Experiences Years Ago, Who Agreed To This Mention.5) 'This
Little Light Of Mine, I'm Gonna Let It Shine'
Lit Cross: We Have A Lit Red Cross In Our Window, Year Round But Especially During The Holy
I've Been Shunned Just For Shining My Light During The Holy Days. Despite What I Say It Always
Come Back To: He That Is Without Sin Preach The First Word....
"If We Say That We Have No Sin, We Deceive Ourselves And the Truth Is Not In Us." (1 John
The Bible Says We Are Not To Hide Our Light Under A Bushel But That's Exactly How Some People
It Is More Blessed To Give And Receive
6) Do the Do's And You Will Be Less Likely To Do The Don'tsMike Warnke, 'Christian' Comedian
Said, 'Do The Do's And You Won't Have Time To Do The Don'ts.'
But I Say Unto You, 'Do The Do's And You Will Have Less Time And Energy To Do The Don'ts,
Not That The Don'ts Will Be Impossible. Mike Warnke Finally Figured This Out.
Many Unbelievers Or Carnal Christians Wrongly Conclude That Christianity Is A System Of Don'ts Rather Than Do's. Then They Conclude That Being A
Christian Is Being A Moral Goody Two Shoes. Then They Expect You As A Christian To Be Perfect Before You Can Say Anything
So It Then Follows That They Don't Do Any Of The Do's, Which Is What God Really Wants.
"We Are Dead To Sin Only To The Degree That We Are Alive Unto God."
"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, SET YOUR HEARTS ON THINGS ABOVE, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your
minds on things above, not on earthly things." (Colossians 3)
A Christian Is Primarily One Who Tastes Of God Things And Bears Fruit, Not A Monk Who Takes
A Vow Of Seeing No Evil, Hearing No Evil, Tasting No Evil.
"That which was from the beginning, which
WE HAVE HEARD, WHICH WE HAVE SEEN WITH OUR EYES, WHICH WE HAVE LOOKED AT AND OUR HANDS HAVE TOUCHED. 2 The life appeared;
we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life,
which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3 We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard,
so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son,
Jesus Christ. 4 We write this to make our joy complete." (1 John 1:1-4)
These Were Jesus' Disciples Who Experienced The Word/Logos Which Is The Beginning Of True
"Come now, LET US REASON TOGETHER," says
the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as
crimson, they shall be like wool." (Isaiah 1:18)
But We Can Experience Him Too. He's Not About Thou Shalt Not, He's About What Thou Shalt.
Those That Don't Do The Do's Are Those That Don't Know Him At All. (Philippians 4)
"Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the
man who takes refuge in him." (Psalm 34:8)
Love And Truth Is A Do And A Fruit And Fruit Grows But Doesn't Instantly Appear: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such
things there is no law." (Galatians 5)
7) Teach The Children The Meaning Of The Holy DaySometimes The Children Are
Disobedient To Their Parents, Ungrateful, Unholy Because Their Parents Are And Don't Respect Each Other. They Don't Even Know
The Basics Because Their Parents Didn't Or Didn't Communicate It To Them.
Going Into A Situation Where You Get The Displeasure Of Hanging Out With Families During
A Holiday Where The Children Are Looking For Someone To Devour, Kind Of Like A Cat Looking For A Scratching Post.
"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be LOVERS OF THEMSELVES, lovers of money,
boastful, proud, abusive, DISOBEDIENT
TO THEIR PARENTS, UNGRATEFUL, UNHOLY, 3 WITHOUT LOVE, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of
the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS
OF GOD-- 5 having a FORM OF GODLINESS but denying its power. HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM." (2 Timothy
LOVERS OF THEMSELVESThis Is How Some Holy Days Have Become Holidays Without Any Sign Of Its
Christian Meaning. Santa Replacing Jesus, Me Instead Of Him, My Presents Rather His Presence...
The Almighty Me Being The Center Of My Punyverse And I Can Only Interpret What Is Happening
By How Does It Serve Me.
Logic And Reasoning Are Only As Good As Their Starting Point. When 'Me' Is The Starting Point
No Wonder When You Talk Of Jesus They Look At You With Blank Stares. They Don't Even Know What You Are Talking About.
DISOBEDIENT TO THEIR PARENTS, UNGRATEFUL, UNHOLY,
LOVERS OF PLEASURE RATHER THAN LOVERS OF GOD
Having a FORM OF GODLINESS
HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM
8) Thou Shalt Judge"
24 Stop judging by mere appearances, and MAKE A RIGHT JUDGMENT." (John 7:24)
People That Say 'Thou Shalt Not Judge' Never Read Let Alone Studied The Bible. I Have Heard,
'Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Judged' Spoken Out Of Context So Many Times From Carnal, Lukewarm And Undercover Christians And Unbelievers
That I Could Literally Hurl.
Log Versus Speck:
"Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged" (Matthew 7:1ff)
The Context, Not Just The Whole Sentence Is About Those With Logs In Their Eyes Not Judging
Those With Specks In Theirs. For Those That Don’t Know, A Log Is Bigger Than A Speck. In Other Words Don’t
Judge If You Are Worse Off Than The One That You Are Judging. It Has Nothing To Do Whether One Should Judge Or Not.
"He that believeth on him is not judged: he that believeth
not hath been JUDGED ALREADY, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And THIS IS THE
JUDGMENT, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil." (John 3:18,19; A.S.V.)
Those That Love Darkness, Walk In Sin, Don't Struggle Against Sin Are Judged.
Now What Does This Have To Do With A Holiday/Holy Day?
Everything, If We Are To Celebrate A Holiday, Let It Be For The Stated Purpose, Not As An
Afterthought That Gets About A Minute Of Attention Then On To Me, Me, Me.
It's Easy To Spot One Who Loves Darkness Rather Than The Light. Their Nasty Mouth Might Get
A Holiday Once Or Twice A Year But The Rest Of The Year They Can Cuss The Wallpaper Off The Wall, Not To Mention The Cuss
Words Often Don't Even Fit With What They Are Talking About. (Ephesians 4:26)
They Will Often Claim To 'Have God' But Hardly Ever Acknowledge His Help Or Blessings. If
They Even Have A 'Form/Facade Of Godliness' They Deny The Power Thereof, And Their Pretending Is Easy To See Through. They
Pride Themselves In Much Of What The World Prides Itself In i.e. A Great Body, Job, Car....But They Are Really Just A Silver
Plaited Turd, A Whitewashed Coffin.
If They Even Pray It Sounds More Like A Speech Than A Prayer And A Lot Of Thees And Thous
The Verdict And Judgment Is Already In On These Folks. Their Famous Line Is That Only Perfect
People Can Point This Out And Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged, But Conveniently Forget That They Have Already Been Judged By Christ
We Cannot Talk To Them About Jesus, Until We Are Perfect Though Talking About Jesus Is A
Part Of Becoming Perfected. (Philemon )
9) Don't Throw The Baby Out With The BathwaterThere Is All This Talk About The Pagan Or Catholic
Origins Of The Holidays, Apparently They Forget That Even The Names Of The Days Of The Week Have Evil Origins.
900; ME Saturdai; OE Saternesdæg, partial trans. of L Sāturnī diēs SATURrn's day; c. D zaterdag, LG saterdag'
By 'Saturn' We Are Not Talking About The Planet But The Roman Mythological God.
'an ancient Roman god of agriculture, the consort of Ops, believed to have ruled the earth
during an age of happiness and virtue, identified with the Greek god Cronus.'
bef. 900; ME sun ( nen ) day, OE sunnandæg,
trans. of L diēs sōlis, itself trans. of Gk hēméra hēlíou DAY OF THE SUN; c. G Sonntag.'
If A Pagan Names The Day No Matter The Name, Doesn't It Have Pagan Origins?
Unless We Want To Communicate Differently Even Using The Names Is Our Participation Isn't
Well, Honey I'm Going Shopping On The Third Day Of The Week, Do You Need Anything?
So, Many Of The Days Of The Week Are Of Pagan Origin, So Should We Not Participate In Them?
Should We Throw The Christ Child i.e., Baby Out Because His Bathwater Is Dirty?
How Did Paul React On Mars Hill When He Saw All The Idols The Greek Worshipped And Philosophized
About? He Was Distressed As I Am With All The Dirty Bathwater Surrounding The Christ Child, Including His Catholic Mother.
"Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and
said: "Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. 23 For as I walked around and
looked carefully at your objects of worship, I EVEN FOUND AN ALTAR WITH THIS Inscription: To An Unknown God. Now WHAT YOU
WORSHIP AS SOMETHING UNKNOWN I AM GOING TO PROCLAIM TO YOU. ...28 'For in him we live and move and have our being.' AS SOME OF YOUR OWN POETS HAVE SAID, 'We are his offspring.' 29 "Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should
not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone--an image made by man's design and skill. 30
In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now HE
COMMANDS ALL PEOPLE EVERYWHERE TO REPENT." (Acts 17)
Rather Than Condemning Them Like With Religious Pretending Jews And Jewish Wannabes (Matt.
23; 1 Timothy 4), He Built Upon What Was There To Bring Them The Whole Truth. He Refers To Their Altar To 'An Unknown God'
And Even Quotes Some Of Their Poets.
More Here On That.
The Advantage We Christians Have Is The Christ Child To Celebrate Not An Unknown God. As
Long As That Is Still Possible Why Not?
Most Families Have Been Given Over To The So Called 'Christmas Spirit' Whatever That Is,
Materialism, Everything But The Christ Child And To Them We Are To Wipe Off Our Tennis Shoes, (Link) But These Epicurean Philosophers
Were Eager To Hear This New Doctrine.
But How You React Is Your Business. (Romans 14:1,5-8), But As For Me And My House, We Will Serve The Lord On Every Day Of The Week And Year. We Choose To Make
That Day Holy.
If You Cannot Beat Them Then Try Redirecting Them.
I Find It Funny But This Year Christmas Is On A Saturday. So The Throw The Baby Out With
The Bathwater Crowd Condemns Christmas For Its Pagan And Catholic Origins But Don't Do The Same With The Days Of The Week
One Person Knowing My Opposition To The Catholic Church Asked Me In Regards To Christmas/Christ
Mass If The Hero Now Is The Catholic Church.
I Said, No, But I Thank Them Regarding Christmas Day Like I Would Thank Balaams Jackass.
I Don't Throw Out The Trinity Because The Catholic Church Formulated (Not Created) The Doctrine.
The Trinity Is Taught Even In The Old Testament. (Genesis 1:26; Ps. 16:10; 45:6,7; 110; Isaiah 9:6; 48:12-16) And The Catholic
Church Only Organized The Teaching Into A Creed.
In Addition To This Many Of The Errant Doctrines Of The Catholic Church Came Later Here.
So Making An Official Day To Celebrate The Birth Of Christ That Counters The Pagan Origins
Of That Date Doesn't Take Away From The Fact That God Became A Baby Through Mary And This Is A Day When Many Christians And
Catholics Celebrate His Birth.
I'm Jiggy With It And What Happens In My House Will Be Strictly About JC And That's What
Is Important To Me.
And If I'm Correct The Creator Is The Originator Of All Days, No Matter What Man Decides
To Call Those Days Afterwards.
"In The Beginning God ....And there was evening, and there was morning--the ___ day " (Genesis 1)
For Those That Celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas, For The Others Have A Super Saturday...Oops
That Has Pagan Origins Too!!
10) Does He Have Your Attention
"For where your treasure is,
there your heart will be also. 22 "The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole
body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within
you is darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 "NO ONE CAN SERVE TO MASTERS. Either he will hate the one and love the other,
or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." (Matthew 6:21-24)
