No, He sure never commanded it. Neither did He forbid it. And that's covered in Romans - something so many Christians tend to ignore about this. No, just because something isn't forbidden doesn't mean it's right to do. But at the same time, it doesn't mean it's wrong, either. (God did specifically say who was to offer incense, hence Nadab and Abihu were fully aware that they were NOT to do so.)

 

Consistency needs to be maintained.  And it isn't by many people who say that Christians who celebrate the birth of Christ are following paganism and Catholicism - in so many different ways.  An offering full of spots and blemishes? So, keeping a day to the Lord, as Romans tells us we CAN do, is unacceptable?  Somehow that just doesn't line up with Romans.

 

I'm not jabbing or attacking here, Mike. But I have to say that, while you are welcome to not like Christmas based on the fact that Catholics promoted it, you did once say that you watch Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph.  Again,I'm not attacking, but there is an inconsistency in that Frosty comes alive by a magic hat - magic, not sleight of hand. And magic comes from where, when we get down to it?  Satan.  Rudolph has a red nose, flies (as do other reindeer) and talks about Santa. If celebrating the birth of Christ is wrong, then where would the right in watching/enjoying either of these come in, since they also are rooted in paganism.  And then there are the superhero shows...mythology rooted in paganism. Right?

 

I'm sorry, but I honestly don't see how one is right and the other is wrong. Again, not trying to be personal, but it has me wondering...

These folks would know...

 

 

 

"Sadly, President Obama made the wrong decision. The freedom and democracy of the Cuban people will not be achieved through these benefits that he's giving -- not to the Cuban people -- but to the Cuban government. The Cuban government will only take advantage to strengthen its repressive machinery, to repress civil society, its people and remain in power."

-- Berta Soler, leader of The Ladies in White.
"[Alan Gross] was not arrested for what he did, but for what could be gained from his arrest. He was simply bait and they were aware of it from the beginning... Castroism has won, though the positive result is that Alan Gross has left alive the prison that threatened to become his tomb."

-- Yoani Sanchez, Cuban blogger and independent journalist,14ymedio.

 

 

 

"The Cuban people are being ignored in this secret conversation, in this secret agreement that we learned today. The reality of my country is there is just one party with all the control and with the state security controlling the whole society. If this doesn’t change, there’s no real change in Cuba. Not even with access to Internet. Not even when Cuban people can travel more than two years ago. Not even that is a sign of the end of the totalitarianism in my country."

--Rosa Maria Paya, daughter of murdered Christian Liberation Movement leader, Oswaldo Paya.

 

 

 

"This is a betrayal that leaves the democratic opposition defenseless. Obama has allied himself with the oppressors and murderers of our people."

-- Jorge Luis Garcia Perez "Antunez," former political prisoner and head of the National Resistance Front.

"I feel as though I have been abandoned on the battlefield."

-- Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet, former Cuban political prisoner and U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient.
