I wrote this a couple years ago. Since I already re-blogged this last year it won’t let me re-blog it again this year. Unfortunately the topic still seems to be an issue still so I am re-posting this entry for the third year in a row, hopefully it will reach a few different readers.
Have a Blessed Week,
It seems the new trend for many Christians is abandoning Holidays like Christmas and Easter. They shout that it is Pagan and we shouldn’t celebrate these things. Some even condemn those who do to Hell. Seems pretty harsh too me.
I often wonder if these people who go on commenting about these things or pointing out every “False Prophet” on the internet, really have God in their minds and heart or are they just using this time to make themselves feel better than other people? They claim they are doing this out of love, and that we need to “correct” our Christian brothers and sisters.
Doesn’t sound a lot like Jesus’ message of love, compassion and forgiveness does it?
I love all my Christian brothers and sisters. Views may be different but the most important thing we must do is show love. You know who loves believers arguing and dividing themselves over small things like holidays? Satan. God wants us to love each other not fight.
I also love Christmas, so many stories of miracles, people reuniting with Family, putting their differences aside and coming together. People become more charitable and volunteer more around this time. Church attendance increases. Many become saved this time of the year. I think God would approve of this Christianized Holiday. God accepted Gentiles, their countries, why not make some of their traditions Godly too?
I look forward to this time of the year, which is my favorite and I hope you all enjoy it too.
