Topic Notes

Is it evil for Christians to celebrate Christmas?

Several Reasons:

the LORD condemns using pagan religious practices in His worship (Deut 12:29-31).

  • He’s right. God doesn’t want us to adopt the religious practices of the people around us.
  • But the reason is because the culture around them at the time did things that were detestable to God
  • BUNNY TRAIL: Black Friday!

the LORD condemns adding to or taking away from His commandments (Deut 12:32).

  • Celebrating Christmas isn’t something we have added as a command. It’s just another great day to worship God

the LORD hates religion that goes under green trees (I Kings 14:23; Isaiah 57:5; Jer 3:6).

  • It’s not about the trees! It’s about the things we do!

the LORD condemns the heathen use of decorated trees at a solstice (Jer 10:1-4).

  • Read the context: it’s talking about making idols
  • The point is: Don’t worship idols

the LORD condemns turning to the left or right from His commandments (Deut 5:32-33).

  • This verse says nothing about Christmas

the LORD commands us to separate from and not touch pagan religion (II Cor 6:14-18).

  • Christians set up the worship of Jesus on this day to hijack the holiday
  • Guess what? We won!

the LORD commands us to come out of Roman Catholicism and her sins (Rev 18:4).

  • Wha?
  • This verse is not about the Catholic Church!

the LORD told the apostles to teach us to observe only His commandments (Matt 28:20).

the LORD rejected David's worship for a small detail and killed Uzzah (II Sam 6:1-10).
