Jehovah`s Witness/Christmas - a Satanic tactic lie.

Question
Bro. DW,

It's truly amazing how satan has blinded the minds of the unbelievers. That is those who don't believe that Christmas is a lie designed by no other than the father of the lie.

Now that they had their fill, their marry making and gift giving under the Christmas tree in front of the burning "yule" log fire. Their Santa Claus under the chimney - lets again remind all celebrants (whether they care or not) what they just celebrated: the pagan celebration of Saturnalia disguise as "the Mass of Christ - Christmas".

The World Book Encyclopedia states:

“This celebration [Christmas] was probably influenced by pagan (unchristian) festivals held at that time. The ancient Romans held year-end celebrations to honor Saturn, their harvest god; and Mithras [the sun god].”

The New Catholic Encyclopedia says: “On Dec. 25, 274, [Roman emperor] Aurelian had proclaimed the sun-god [Mithras] principal patron of the empire . . . Christmas originated at a time when the cult of the sun was particularly strong at Rome.”

The book Celebrations states:

“The clergy eventually brought the . . . world of the Saturnalia into the Church itself.”

And the Encyclopædia Britannica notes that December 25 was regarded “as the birth date of the . . . [sun] god Mithra.”


Encyclopædia of Religion and Ethics:

“Most of the Christmas customs now prevailing . . . are not genuine Christian customs, but heathen customs which have been absorbed or tolerated by the Church. . . . The Saturnalia in Rome provided the model for most of the merry customs of the Christmas time. This old Roman feast was celebrated on 17-24 December.”


Richard must be very proud it or as he put it

"a phenomenal time together with family."

So if as Richard say

"I celebrate Christ's birth which is hardly a pagan concept.  I go through no pagan rituals in the process,"

Then why celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25 if this date was not his date of birth but “as the birth date of the . . . [sun] god Mithra.”?

If it's not "a pagan concept" why do scholars say that it is?

Why does history say that it is derived from a pagan concept.

Why associate the birth of Christ to the celebration of the pagan gods Saturn / Mithra (December 25)? Why not December 1, 2, 3, 4, 20, 21, 22, 23 or 24 or 26?

If no pagan ritual is ever observed during Christmas season - why the Christmas tree?

What does the Christmas tree have to do with the birth of Christ if not based on pagan rituals?

Why the yule log?

What does the yule log have to do with the birth of Christ if not a pagan ritual.

Why the Christmas gift?

What does the Christmas gift have to do with the birth of Christ if not a pagan ritual?

Why Santa Clause and his Reindeer?

What do Santa Clause and his Reindeers have to do with the birth of Christ if Christmas is not a pagan concept?

Really Bro. DW. who is it that Richard and all of Christendom honoring when they are celebrating Christmas?

thx.

Answer
Hello Bro

Thanks for writing

You know isn't it funny how things are just obvious for true christians. I mean a brother was talking to me about Christmas the other day and we were just saying to each other "you know everything about it is pagan the churches are so blind it's just so obviously pagan" that's all we needed to say to each other, both exactly on the same wavelength.

Yet you get people like Derrick and Richard and just all of Christendom that even when you explain it to them multiple times they just brush it off.They have Christmas trees in there churches. They actually have a resurrected sun god in their churches, unbelievable!!

It's the same with the trinity. It's blatantly obvious there's no trinity it's the most ridiculous thing you could ever think of yet people still believe it.

The truth is just obvious, to those who want to see it they'll see it, to everyone who doesn't want to see it they won't

Have a very happy day in Jehovah's service Bro

Take care

Jehovah`s Witness

Bro DW

Expertise

I have many years of experience serving Jehovah . I have known Jehovah a long time and I have known his organization . I have been privileged to see great progress not only in my own personal relationship with my God and Father but within his organization. I am an avid reader of the bible and have been gifted by my Father with the indescribable privilege of being allowed to understand his own word.

Experience

The truth is all about scripture and logic. The two go hand in hand . There is not one bible verse that cannot be understood within the realms of human reasoning. Not one!! Why would it?? The bible is God's message to his creation . His creation who he made to understand things in a specific way. God is not stupid or unwise as to leave as a message then allow us to guess what it means or who he is. 1 Tim 2:3This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth" Notice the expression "accurate knowledge".

Organizations
The bible leaves signs of true christianity there are many. Jehovah's witnesses meet every single sign. One sign is the removal of false teachings that permeated the world soon after the apostles died. Jesus foretold this and he also foretold of the restoration of pure worship in the period known as the last days. The days we are currently living in. Jesus was a master of using illustrations he used an illustration to highlight this point Matt 13: "The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a man who sowed fine seed in his field. 25While men were sleeping, his enemy came and oversowed weeds in among the wheat and left. 26When the stalk sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds also appeared. 27So the slaves of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it have weeds?’ 28He said to them, ‘An enemy, a man, did this.’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go out and collect them?’ 29He said, ‘No, for fear that while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest season, I will tell the reapers: First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up; then gather the wheat into my storehouse" Why did he speak in illustrations? Matt 13:10So the disciples came and said to him: “Why do you speak to them by the use of illustrations?” 11In reply he said: “To you it is granted to understand the sacred secrets of the Kingdom of the heavens, but to them it is not granted" The kingdom of the heavens is full of sacred secrets that Jesus reveals only to his followers. This privilege is open to all who are really willing to submit to God and his Christ in action not just in words. These are the ones God is looking for. Are you really one?? If so I encourage you to let Jehovah's witnesses show you what the Bible really teaches.

Education/Credentials
False religion is disgusting to God and to his true worshippers it is likened in the Bible to a harlot Rev 17:"I will show you the judgment upon the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, whereas those who inhabit the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication" Whereas the bride of Christ is likened to a virgin Rev 14: 4"These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins" These are both used as spiritual terms here and show the importance of pure and clean worship for God's people.
