In Topic: Christmas Tree Or No?

Yesterday, 08:45 PM

The more I reflect on the Jeremiah 10 passage, the more I have to wonder if it is speaking of carved idols at all.

For this reason: it is not in them to do harm or good. (paraphrased )

according to Ezekiel 20, idols pollute people. I would say thay is harm.

Seems to me the idol is put on the tree. Jeremiah reveals that the image is molten, in other words , made from melted silver or gold. They deck it with silver and gold.

There is no harm or good in the tree itself. But they put their molten images in its branches.

Oh Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Your branches green delight me...

Could be seen as idol worship, imo.

Will be praying for God's will in the situation.

Might I suggest that if you are not living in the land promised to Jacob, that instead of tithing your money to the Church you use it toward your medical bills and other household bills? God does not require tithes of anyone living outside of Israel... no matter what pastors tell you.
