The Church of God Does Not Celebrate Christmas as Jesus’ Birthday

2020-12-11 15:19
Origins of Christmas.
The reason for establishing December 25 as Christmas is somewhat obscure, but it is usually held that the day was chosen to correspond to pagan festivals that took place around the time of the winter solstice, when the days begin to lengthen, to celebrate the “rebirth of the sun.,”
From Encyclopedia Americana (Glolier Inc., 1996)

Christmas on Dec. 25 is first known to have been celebrated in Rome in the second quarter of the 4th century…

December 25 in Rome. – This was the date of a pagan festival in Rome, chosen in A.D. 274 by the emperor Aurelian as the birthday of the unconquered sun, which at the winter solstice begins again to show an increase of light.
From Encyclopaedia Britannica (Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc.)

It is very scary that people worship Sun god without knowledge of the Bible. Christmas is not the birthday of Jesus Christ but the birthday of Sun god. When people celebrate Christmas, they worship other god. It means that they break the 1st commandment among the 10 commandment. That's why World Mission Society Church of God does not Celebrate Christmas as Jesus' birthday.

    Yes, it is true. To celebrate the Christmas is disobey God. If disobey God, who can be saved? So we have to know the Bible. We have to look at what the Bible say. We must keep the Passover of the New Covenant but not celebrate the Christmas.

  • 2020-12-11 15:48

    There's no record of the Christmas in the bible. It shows that the Christmas is not relevant to Jesus at all.

  • 2020-12-11 16:15

    I've never celebrated the Christmas in our Church of God (WMSCOG) since our church only celebrates the feasts of God in the Bible, rejecting the men's tradition not based on the Bible. I am so proud of that! Christmas celebration originated from Roman Saturnalia celebrated on December 25 and has appeared in Christianity since AD 354. The genuine Christians must not follow the Pagan custom

    We need to seriously consider this matter of celebrating Christmas because the act to worship other God will bring a curse. Many people still do not know about the fact that Christmas is not Jesus' birth Day, but that of the sun god. Let's spread the truth to the people of the world!

  • 2020-12-12 02:48

    Surely, Christmas is not written in the Bible at all. It has nothing to do with our salvation. On the contrary, whoever celebrate Christmas prove himself to be standing against God.

  • 2020-12-12 11:07

    Christmas is sun-god's birthday, not Jesus' birthday. So God's children must not keep the Christmas. We should keep the Passover of the New Covenant to receive salvation.

  • 2020-12-12 12:13

    When I was a little while attending a church with my friends, I had been cerebrating whenever Christmas comes with them. However, when studying the truth about that Christmas is not the birthday of Jesus but that of pagan, that came to me as a shock. Now, I've been attending in church of God which keeps all true truths and believe in Father and Mother who exist in the Bible. I'm so lucky to realize all things of truth.

  • 2020-12-12 12:50

    Yes. Christmas is fake, not the date of Jesus' birth. It originated from the birthday of the sun god. This is now common sense. All history tells the truth.

  • 2020-12-12 14:48

    Stan has tricked the whole world with lies as if Christmas was the day of Jesus' birth. However, we now know that Christmas is not the birthday of Jesus, but the birthday of the sun god.

  • 2020-12-12 13:40

    Jesus was not born on December 25th.

    On the contrary, Christmas is related to the birth of the sun.

    Christmas has nothing to do with our salvation. Instead, we should keep the New Covenant Passover to get salvation.

  • 2020-12-13 13:36

    Churches are lying that Christmas is Jesus' birthday, and instigate people to celebrate Christmas ,namely sun god's birthday as Jesus' birthday! True Christians must not participate in Pagan' s festival.

  • 2020-12-13 13:49

    It is so shoked that Chistmas is not Jesus' birthday. I'm afraid I break the 1st commandment.

  • 2020-12-13 13:49

    Celebrating a day as God's festival is very important matter for Christians. The day should be approved by God. However, Christmas is not Jesus' birthday, but Sun God's birthday. We must know the day of God's festival to serve God in the right way.

  • 2020-12-13 13:48

    Christmas is not Jesus' birthday! It's a day to commemorate the birth of the sun god.

  • 2020-12-13 13:51

    Church of God doesn't celebrate the Christmas. It is because the Christmas is to worship Sun god. To celebrate the Christmas is not God's will. Only those who obey God's will can be saved. Therefore, people who want to go to Heaven, must not celebrate the Christmas!

  • 2020-12-13 13:58

    The Tv show, Surprise had already broadcast that Christmas was not Jesus' birthday. also there is no evidence in the bible. 2,000 years ago, Jesus wanted to celebrate Passover. Why do people today not know Passover and go crazy about Christmas?

  • 2020-12-31 13:15

    Definitely Christmas is not the Jesus' birthday. Clearly no one can gain the blessings by keeping the Christmas. On the contrary Jesus' birthday is the Passover through which we can be saved.

  • 2022-07-23 14:11

    This world celebrates Christmas.
    Even though that day is the birthday of sun god.

    We celebrate Christmas because, as the angel said, the birth of Jesus Christ is “good news.” Good news is meant to be celebrated. In fact, the angel said the news of Jesus’ birth would cause “great joy” and would be “for all the people”—the joyful celebration would be universal. People around the globe would be glad for this occasion.

    We celebrate Christmas because, as the angel said, “A Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” The three titles the angel applies to Jesus are important. Jesus is the Savior who delivers us from sin and death (Matthew 1:21). He is the human Messiah (or Christ) who fulfills the Law and the Prophets, showing that God is faithful (see Matthew 5:17). And He is the divine Lord who has entered our world: the Almighty has taken on human flesh; God and man have been fused together in an indivisible, eternal bond; God is truly with us (see Matthew 1:23).

    In celebrating Christmas, we celebrate the Savior, because we needed deliverance. We celebrate the Christ in whom all of God’s promises are “Yes” and “Amen” (2 Corinthians 1:20). We celebrate the Lord who in humility took on “the very nature of a servant” for our sakes (see Philippians 2:6–8).

    We celebrate Christmas with gift-giving because of the “indescribable gift” that God gave to us (2 Corinthians 9:15). We celebrate Christmas by stringing lights because the Light of the world has come to us (John 1:4; Isaiah 9:2). We celebrate Christmas with carols and choirs because they are expressive of joy and follow the examples of Mary and Zacharias and Simeon and the angels, all of whom extolled the Lord in poetry (Luke 1–2). We celebrate Christmas by decorating evergreen trees with stars and angels and tinsel because of the eternal life Jesus brings (John 4:14)—and stars and angels and beauty were all associated with Jesus’ birth.

    In celebrating Christmas we celebrate the love and condescension of God. In Texas in 1987, a toddler by the name of Jessica McClure fell into an eight-inch well casing. Down she went, becoming stuck twenty-two feet below ground. Once people discovered that “Baby Jessica” was in the well, they took immediate action. They didn’t tell her to find a way to climb back up, and they didn’t just shout happy thoughts to encourage her. No, they went down to where she was and got her. They did whatever it took. Rescuers worked nonstop for fifty-eight hours to free her.

    In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve fell. Down they went, dragging all humanity with them into the darkness and death of sin. And what did God do? He did not tell us to find our own way out of the mess we were in, and He did more than shout down happy thoughts to us from heaven. No, He came down to where we were and got us. That’s what Christmas is all about—God’s coming down to rescue us, to do whatever it took to deliver us from sure death.

    When even one person is in a life-threatening situation, we understand what has to be done. When God looked down at our sinful planet, He saw a whole world of people in mortal danger. We celebrate Christmas because it was at Christmastime that the Rescuer of all mankind came to save us from the hopeless situation we were in. God did not stay in heaven; He came down to where we are.
