From The Top 10 Myths That Dominate Christianity


4. Ho-ho-ho.
Merry Christ-mas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year (sing along if you know the words), when we celebrate Santa and reindeer and Christ-mas trees and Christ-mas lights and Christ-mas decorations and presents and ski trips and drinking and stuffing our faces at Christ-mas parties. Deck the halls. Jingle bells.

What in the world does any of this have to do with the birth of Jesus?

Ask any Christian and they’ll probably tell you that despite the central role Santa plays in all of this ‘holiday cheer’, they know the real reason for the season. Don’t we all?

MATERIALISM.

Christ-mass/X-mass is the most materialistic event on the calendar. Advertising and peer pressure has people spending money they don’t have on things they don’t need, to impress people they don’t know. THAT is what X-mass is all about and the real reason for the silly season. The supposed birthday of Jesus was simply added to indoctrinate and incorporate Christians into these overtly pagan/heathen Yuletide/Saturnalia traditions and promotematerialism. X-mass/Yuletide/Saturnalia and the birth of Jesus are, by their very nature, mutually exclusive.

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and materialism.


X-mass teaches people to tell lies, and worse yet, it manipulates us to perpetuate these lies “for the good of the children”. And if any should refuse to teach, train and spoil their children into being selfish and materialistic liarslike themselves, they face the wrath and judgment of the evil majority (Exod. 23:2) who consider themselves to be St. Nick’s best friend and personal defenders.

From a very early age, children are fed the LIE that there is a jolly old man in a red suit named Santa [Ni]Claus (old St. Nick/Nicolas) who, in a single night, flies around the world in a sled pulled by flying reindeer (one with a red nose that lights the way), landing on people’s rooftops undetected before forcing his obese, jelly-like exterior through the chimney and leaving all of these wonderful gifts under the X-mass tree strung with gold and silver tinsel. As ridiculous as this story sounds, even to children, they are told if they do not believe in Santa he won’t come and leave them any presents. How can children believe anything their parents tell them after finding out Santa is a lie?

We are training our children to believe in lies and that it’s fun to repeat them.

The name “Santa” is a very obvious anagram for Satan, who is the father/inventor of LIES [John 8:35 (John 8:44 KJV)] and he is laughing at us all (ho-ho-ho) for falling for his X-mass con job. No wonder Christ HATES X-mass.

Revelation 2:6, 15
2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes (followers of Santa [Ni]-Claus – Yuletide, Easter [Ishtar – a goddess of fertility – eggs a symbol of fertility] etc.), which I also hate.
2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the followers of St. [Ni]-Claus (Yuletide), which thing I hate.

So how can so-called Christians do this to Christ? Celebrating a lie, and teaching your children to do the same is patently evil, which is why Christ (the Truth) condemns the pagan tradition of the X-mass/Yuletide/Saturnalia, which honors Satan/Santa, NOT the supposed birth of Jesus. Does anyone really believe that the Lamb of God was born in the dead of Winter? Lambs are born in the Spring, the season of REBIRTH.

In the year 7 B.C. there was a conjunction of Jupiter (the king of the planets) and Saturn (thought to be the protector of Israel) in the Constellation of Pisces (the Sign of the Messiah), as computed in 1603 by the Astronomer Royal in Prague – Johannes Kepler, that was first visible at daybreak on the 12th of April 7 B.C. (Passover in 7 B.C. was on Monday April 13th which commenced at sundown on the 12th). The earth-shattering significance of this conjunction – Messiah; King; Protector of Israel; Passover – would have been unmistakable to the Levitical Druid astronomers (wise men) in the British Isles, where the monarch was also the Archdruid.

Read about Glastonbury

Matthew 2:1-6
2:1 Now when Jesus had been born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men (druids) to the East to Jerusalem,

2:2 Saying, Where is he that has been BORN King of the Jews? for we saw his “Star” in the East, and are come to worship him.
2:3 When Herod the king had heard [these things], he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
2:4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and lawyers of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.

2:5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
2:6 And thou Bethlehem, [in] the land of Judah, art not the least among the princes of Judah: for out of thee shall come a Governor (of this prison planet), that shall rule My people Israel.

Jesus (Savior) was born in the Spring, in Bethlehem of Judaea, at the time of the Passover (when the lamb’s blood saved us by causing the angel of death to passover) NOT on the pagan Yuletide/Christmas, during the season of death. Celebrating the heathen Yuletide/Saturnalia began shortly after the flood (Gen. 10:8-9), and had been going on for thousands of years before the birth of Jesus.

Jeremiah 10:1-4

10:1 Hear ye the Word which the “I AM” speaketh unto you, O House of Israel:
10:2 Thus saith the “I AM”, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
10:3 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.
10:4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.


Spreading lies and continuing to do that thing which Christ hates is a sure-fire way to burn (Rev. 21:8).

I know it's easy, and often perfectly legitimate, to decry the grotesque commercialism of Christmas, but I shall always appreciate what my poetic dad, who was raised without the church but who later became a Christian, said of Santa Claus: that he was, at least to my dad in his otherwise heathen, pagan because rural, childhood, far from a usurper but rather an ambassador for Christ. Without Christmas, celebrated in his little one-room schoolhouse out in the country, in a remote parish so far removed that it was never wholly evangelized by either competing Protestants or Catholics, he might not have been introduced to Christ and to the gospels. The logic may be specious, capable of being criticized on many, including Biblical grounds, but it remains, at least, poetic, and I am the kind of guy who often appreciates the poets as much or more than the Hebrew prophets. Speaking of whom, here is a section from Handel's masterpiece, taken from the scriptures, and perfect, it seems to me, for the season (hello bro @Todd ):

Nice story about Christmas! I became a Christian one Christmas morning when I was about 8 or 9 - I woke up early (about 4am), crept downstairs and opened up one of my presents - a classic 1980s radio cassette player (not unlike this one):-

As there was absolutely nothing else to do, I grabbed a cassette that was lying on the table and by breakfast I had understood a message that I didn’t expect and encountered a person who has changed my whole life.


Paid on the Nail, by Graham Kendrick, 1974

Perhaps if you have heard the Christmas story a thousand times before, you might catch the echoes of truth from the events of the 1st Century coming through...
