Christians need to know the pagan history of Christmas to ensure that they are worshipping their true God in both Spirit & in truth.  We’ll start back to the time before Christians started celebrating Christmas. Yes, it is a fact that this holiday was practiced long before Christianity was classified as a religion and the early church was formed. It was only known by different names. It’s a pagan festival. Now if you refer back to the history lesson given on Nimrod, the Sun god, the Mystery Religion of Babylon, and Paganism, you will recall that believers and followers of the sun-god celebrate his birthday around the Winter Solstice, on December 25th, the time when the sun is closest to the earth. December 21st is the shortest day of the year.

Followers of the sun-god around the world celebrate this day, December 25th, as the day of birth of their god. This is the day when it is believed that the sun-god is reborn. Many of the practices, customs, and rituals that stem from this day are all pagan. The Romans celebrated Saturnalia, a festival dedicated to Saturn, their sun-god, that ran from the 17th to 24th of December. This festival included gift giving, orgies, and drunkenness.

When Christianity was adopted by Rome through Constantine, it did not replace their paganish customs, it was infiltrated and corrupted by paganism. Only those who had held true to the Word of God and did not accept the Roman’s worldy twist were able to withstand. The early church objected to the celebration of Christmas. You see in the time of Constantine, Christianity was on the rise. There were many riots and uprising due to the conversion of pagans to Christianity. Rather than extend the violence, Constantine claimed he had a vision of the cross of Christ and this was the reason for him being in power. He later declared Christianity as the Roman Empire’s official religion.

While it would seem that it was a win for Jesus & Christianity, it turned into something quite worse. They held the First Council of Nicaea in which they decided on doctrine, practices, and customs that would go along with Christianity, in purpose to allow the already pagans to continue their same worship, but have Christians feel involved. Catholicism was born, which is the use of Jesus intermingled with the idols & religion of mystery Babylon (paganism).

It was here where it was decided that along with Easter, another pagan holiday, that Christians would worship the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25th, along with their sun-god Saturn. They named it “Christ”-“Mass” They discussed the customs and practices. It was the perfect solution for Rome. They were able to continue with their pagan gods worship and Christians felt as if they were able to worship the birth of our Savior, Jesus.  However for Christians, that was false.

Now this tradition which started for “Christians” in the 4th Century A.D., was passed down through centuries over 1500 years until now. A lot of the practices developing and the acceptance of them growing, until now at this point in time they are not questioned. It’s a wildly practiced holiday all over the world. It is a tradition of man, that through acceptance has generated spiritual energy to those practicing’s detriment. From this history alone it should be understood that Christmas is not a Christian holiday that believers should be celebrating. There is however much more evidence when reviewing the history and meaning of the symbols & practices associated with Christmas.

Though you may feel that you still are worshipping our Jesus on Christmas regardless of what the pagans are doing, please know this is incorrect.  We are not to worship God in the way WE want, but how He wants.  When the children of Israel were freed from Egypt and built their idols in order to worship God, Moses quickly tore it down.  They were commanded not to worship Him as the Pagans & Gentiles did.

We are to worship Jesus exactly the way He commands and it should be everyday.  The only reason someone should celebrate Christmas is if it is found in the bible.  If it is not, then it is a tradition of man.  Christians should reject all tradition of men.

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. (‭Colossians‬ ‭2‬:‭8‬ NKJV)

Christians Need to Know The Pagan History of Christmas

    Hi my name is Zoe, I am 12 years old. I started watching your channel about 2 weeks ago. Honestly I am a Christan and so are my Parents and siblings. But they celebrate these holidays and I am confused.My Parents are led by the Holy Sprit. I CAN tell. But wouldn’t that mean they would be covicted about celebrating holidays? I know it is easier for adults to walk away from the traditions as they have more freedom. But my WHOLE family celebrates these holidays and support tithing!I am the youngest of the family so I don’t know what to do!Maybe these holidays aren’t really bad,and It is okay to celebrate them.But then, why can’t I shake off this conviction…!?

      Zoe people do what they do for different reasons. If your family chooses to celebrate these days you have no power over what they do and I’m sure you know this. Since you are convicted, don’t celebrate, just accommodate, the Lord will strengthen you in your convictions. Respect your parents and respectfully voice your convictions, and participate when absolutely necessary. I’m reminded of Jesus when he stayed behind in Jerusalem while his parents journeyed home. His parents found out He stayed in Jerusalem and they went back gripped with fear looking for Jesus only to find Him teaching in the synagogue. They ask Him why did He do such a thing? He replied, “I must be about my Fathers business.” After that He was subject to them. Jesus had a zeal for God but He knew He had to respect His earthly guardians. Where the Lord guides he provides.

    Thank you for your video. Very eye opening indeed. I would like to stop and have begun looking at other traditions and whether they are biblical or not, but my husband does not want to change anything. He loves the special time with family etc and doesn’t want to ostracize our kids from our extended family. For him the value of christmas/easter is in sharing quality time with family and he doesn’t want to lose this. So if you all could pray that the Lord’s will be done in our situation I would be sincerely grateful.

    This thing about Christmas wouldn’t be easy to accept by some people, becos they know they will rejected and mocked by family members and friends. Some of us are more scared of men than we are of God, which is bad, we’re worshipping the creatures traditions than what the Creator said. May God help us, when we hear some hard sayings as this we as believers should not be so defensive and argue about it rather we should humble ourselves and take it to the Holy Spirit and know if it’s truth or not than fighting becos of ur pride and ego and not for God’s Glory. Please know this u can be sincere in ur worship of Christ just like the Israelites when they came out of Egypt but they were sincerely wrong and God wasn’t happy with them at all. We should Christianity is not for us to be accepted by the world or feel good but it’s for God’s Glory and to stand for the truth in love and not to be mesmerized by the world and the traditions of men. If the early followers of Christ didn’t celebrate it, then y are we doing it??? We need to answer this question honestly and know only the Truth will set us free, thanks.

    Wow. Some of you have one religious argument after another and leave no room for a person’s individual convictions. I realize we are to follow in unity or we would have a million versions of Christianity—but, sheesh. Let’s all know that people who are commenting are at different stages in their maturity and not be so harsh on each other.

    Amen to all you have said, Bro. James. In Lk. 5:39, Jesus/Yahshua said that “No man also having drunk OLD WINE straightway [immediately] desires [the]new [wine]; for he says, the old is better”. The Lord revealed to me that this refers to doctrines of men being desired instead of the truth. Christians are stone-drunk on the old wine of traditions, and so do not want to “taste” the new [revealed] truth of the Word. At least, not immediately. I take it that this means that sometime in the future, they’ll sober up and believe the truth. Or stay stone-drunk and pay for it.

      I agree Larry Hayden! My goal in writing this article and creating this site is for them to wake up before He returns. God Bless you and thank you for the comment!
