What is the true meaning of Christmas?

Postby nakitakona » 12 Dec 2018, 04:21

I have realized nowadays that Christmas has lost its real meaning due to the advent of modern technology and the overdoing of commercialization.

Is Jesus Christ's birth a good source of income especially those big business establishments?

Kids and adults welcome Christmas season for gifts, for party. Employed people are happy when Christmas is here. They are receiving 13th month pay along with their productive bonuses, among others.

In yourself, what is the true meaning of Christmas?

The holiday known world wide is promoted as a Christian Holiday, celebrating the birth of Jesus. However, you asked about the true meaning of Christmas, and it is not what most think.

The Christian Holy Scriptures is called the Bible. It would seem this is the best source to study the true meaning of Christmas if you are going to call it a Christian Holiday. It causes many great concern and conflict from their upbringing to learn that there are seven specific God's Holy Days and true Christians are to celebrate those days that are Holy to God. The holiday known as Christmas is not one of them. Most people who call themselves Christians don't even know God's Holy days exist.

The scriptures warn true Christians to be wary of false prophets and the Great Deceiver; those who mislead with false doctrine. Most of us today have been misled. Most of our parents, grandparents and several generations before them have been misled. The winter seasonal holiday we now celebrate as Christmas is actually entirely based on pagan celebrations that were celebrated centuries before Christ. Every aspect we now call Christmas activity is based on a pagan activity, including a lighted tree, the giving of gifts, the yule log, mistletoe, feasts; every detail.

A catholic pope in the 4th century deemed it a good idea for those Christians in that era to time their own celebration season to coincide with the pagan events to hide their activities. If you study the time line given in the Scriptures, Christ could not have been born at that time of year. It is false doctrine.

Many toss all that aside, saying, “Well, we are celebrating the birth of Christ. I don't care what it was before.”

The biggest problem with that is that the Bible also warns true Christians to stay away from all forms of pagan celebrations, which are called abominations to God. If you actually open the Book and study the Word, you will find great discomfort in celebrating Christmas as a Christian holiday. Those who hold true to God's Word avoid it like the pagan holiday it truly is.

Satan takes great delight in misleading those who call themselves Christians. This “Christmas” holiday event is right at the top of his worldly successes. Don't take my word for it. If you call yourself a Christian, take time to Study God's Word to learn the entire Truth and while you are at it, learn what else you are being deceived about.

Christmas is nothing but capitalism to make malls and online stores rich because Jesus doesnt exist.

@oldguy well said. I am a Christian and I do read the words of God from the Bible, from the scriptures. It is our faith that leads us to believe has been written in the scriptures. It is the world that introduced Christmas, a pagan practice on Christ and the rituals or the mass held for such paganism tradition. The birth of Jesus is the manifestation of the unfeigned love of Heavenly Father to give His children who have been fallen the chance to be saved, to be redeemed from their sins by believing with His Only Begotten Son as the only Savior for them.

From what I have learnt, Christmas ought to have been a festival of helping Poor, Destitute, help elders and disabled in need.
Of speading the compassion and love in world within and among communities.
Yet what I see are Mega Shopping offers, enticing Holiday Packages, Commercial selling bonanzas.
The Festival looks to have been made a slave of Commercial considerations.
That is why people have become crazy about celebrating the festival so madly even in India, where the Catholics are not so large in numbers. Also, I wonder how many Indians actually know the true meaning of this festival?

As a Christian christmas is a period where Christ birth is celebrated in christiandom. It might not be the exact date but it has been a period set aside the world over to celebrate this.
