THE BIGGEST LIES OF A COUNTERFEIT CHRISTIANITY

Christianity instead of doing away with paganism and idolatry, have adopted it. It has become the lynch pin and focal point of their teaching of so-called truth, aimed at the docile, naïve crowd that have by their own lack of truth, wisdom and understanding, in not bothering to seek and search it out for themselves. In their lethargy in allowing others to program and teach them about the word of God, they unwittingly and unknowingly have made the choice to let others dictate how, why, what and whom to believe and accept as the truth of God. By not making a choice or decision to know and understand the truth by their own seeking and searching it out.

They have already made the choice to allow others to program their minds to suit someone else’s plans and purposes. When someone tells us, “its in the bible” we need to ask where? Many things that people tell us about being in the bible, is a straight up lie, by someone wanting to seem knowledgeable and they have heard others respond to them in like manner. The problem with this lack of a desire to actually know the truth of God has consequences that go along with it. Especially so if a person claims to believe in the creator God of all that exists. The atheists and unbelievers are not trying to fool anybody, they are up-front in their unbelief. The worship of God is absolutely useless to those that are not attempting to know Him intimately, those claiming to be followers of God, but haven’t the slightest notion of what it is they are supposed to be following. For them it counts for nothing at all except for it being an abomination to God who has this to say below in Matthew.

Matthew 7:22Many will say to me in that day, (when Christ returns to rule over all nations) Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

(But what will Christ say?)

Mark 7:6-8 (ESV) And he said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, “‘This people (those claiming to be Christians) honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me, in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

The commandments of men

Unequaled evil satanic trash, against the word and way of God, such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, the trinity lie, the rapture lie, the hell myth, the dying and going to heaven myth, the worship of Dagon, the half fish half man god, purgatory, Lent, Maundy Thursday, Ash Wednesday, The worship of a dead woman in place of Christ, praying to her for guidance and direction in life, until recently eating fish on Fridays in his honor, that man has a free will apart and separate from and greater than the will of God, the Christian lie of the hell myth, where God is going to send billions of His own people that He loves, to suffer forever in the excruciating never ending pain and suffering beyond the imaginations of man, and many more things too numerous to mention, God says)

You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.”

Will we continue worshiping God in vain? Or will we take it upon ourselves to seek and search out the truth that everyone in the world now have access to. In the library or our own encyclopedias, or on line we can Google up everything under the sun to learn the truth about anything we would like to know. We definitely do not have to accept and believe what any individual has to say about anything, including myself.  We just have to ask ourselves whether or not we care enough to know the truth of God, or whether we prefer having it pumped into our heads and down our throats, by spiritual teachers that the god of this world has blinded, and God the Father has sent them all strong delusion that they should continue believing a lie.

Why do you fight so hard against hearing the good news of God?

A giant problem for so called Christians, is the fact that they want to accept and believe that they are going to be saved, but they do not like to hear that everybody else is going to be saved as well. They somehow reason that it diminishes their own goodness, that none of us have. It is just another way in which their mind, heart and thought process gives them away in how they think, believe and reason things out. Why should anyone be upset at my teaching the truth of God, that He is going to save everyone? Because that is the best news that a person can bring to us. Unless of course,, they cannot stand the thought that God is going to save others that they do not like or their own enemies as well as themselves. God tells us, that out of the mouth, comes the abundance of the heart. We do not have to hear them saying it out loud for everyone to hear, they have given themselves away by what is coming out of their mouths of unbelief.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 (KJV) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause, God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Two thousand years ago Jesus Christ came to earth to be born of a flesh and blood woman. To grow up from a baby into adulthood to acquaint us with His Father God. He said, “You have seen me, you have seen the Father--it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.

Proverbs 28:5 Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD comprehend fully.

Jeremiah 31:34 No longer will each man teach his neighbor or his brother, saying, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity and will remember their sins no more."

(this time frame will be after Christ has returned and along with His elect that will rule and reign with Him for a thousand years, have taught the nations the truth of God)

Matthew 13:11 He replied, "The knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.

(I claim that God has been and continues to reveal His truth to me as I can bear it, while He is holding His truth back from others that are unable to receive it at this time. I do not claim to have all truth, I do not believe any physical person does. I believe that many others have been given more of the truth of God, than He has given me, but as I continue on seeking and searching His truth out, He will see that more will be revealed to me)

John 6:45 It is written in the Prophets: 'And they will all be taught by God.' Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from Him comes to Me--

John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever. (It is talking about the Holy Spirit of God here.)

John 14:17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and will be in you.

(Jesus Christ is the Holy Spirit of God, He lives in me, and I live in Him.)

John 14:26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you.

(in the due time of God, and not a split second earlier, God the Father will reveal all things to all of creation)

1 Corinthians 2:12 We have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 
(this is speaking of those accepting and believing followers of the truth, the will and way of God.)

2 Corinthians 1:21 Now it is God who establishes both us and you in Christ. He anointed us,

1 Thessalonians 4:9 Now about brotherly love, you do not need anyone to write to you, because you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another.

Hebrews 8:11 No longer will each one teach his neighbor or his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' because they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest.

1 John 2:20
You, however, have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.

Again, it is speaking of those having accepted and are in the belief of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ that takes away the sin of the whole world, without even one exception. It is not something that Christ is going to do, He has already sacrificed Himself one time for all of creation. We do not have to continue on looking for someone to come and save us, when He exclaimed, “It is finished”. He had successfully completed the assignment His Father God had given Him to do.

John 14:17 the Spirit of truth. The world (unbelieving so-called Christians) cannot receive Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you do know Him, for He abides with you and will be in you.

(Christ, as the Holy Spirit lives in me, as I live in Him)

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

If all of this sounds foolish to you, it would indicate you are perishing. Not by any means to be understood as losing your salvation, those not acquiring or allowing a connection, belief or relationship with God, are perishing so long as they remain in that condition. Once God brings all things to Himself through Jesus Christ, then all will understand they are being saved by the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:21 For since in the wisdom of God, the world through its wisdom did not know Him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.

And as stated many times before, all will eventually understand, all will be called, all will come and all will be saved and belong in the world ruling government known as, “The Kingdom of God”.

1 Corinthians 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,

1 Corinthians 1:25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength.

But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. So, as I chide others for not having the understanding, I feel they should have if claiming to be followers of God, I have to admit that it is impossible for them to discern them on a physical level, because they have to be spiritually discerned.

Matthew 13:11 He answered and said unto them, because it is given unto you (those who believe and accept the truth of God) to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them (those refusing to believe) it is not given.

Matthew 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Peter was looking at things with a totally physical mind set, God discerns things through spiritual discernment. The Babylon of confusion refusing to come out of this world counterfeit Christian religion, find themselves at odds with the word of God. The likes of which we find in most all of the time-honored paganism and idolatry worship that so-called Christians put their stock in, like Christmas, Easter, Halloween and on and on it goes in the endless things I have written down in this letter, etcetera.

1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

1 Corinthians 1:18,23 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved, it is the power of God. (all to be saved at a later time)

John 8:51,52 Verily, verily, I say unto you, if a man keeps (obey) my saying, he shall never see death…

John 10:20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?

His people calling themselves Christians today, will not say these things out loud. But inwardly, they are mostly of the same mindset and belief as they were back during the time of Christ on earth as a human being. They didn’t believe Him and wouldn’t accept His Word as the truth back then and even killed Him for bringing it to them. Unless God is calling you now, you do not and can not believe it now either, it is just so much foolishness to you. In which a prudent person would ask God to heal their blindness and deafness and allow them to hear and understand too. 

Proverbs 14:6 A scorner seeks wisdom, and finds it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understands.

John 5:44 How can ye believe, which receive honor one of another, and seek not the honor that cometh from God only?

I am not due any honor in bringing you the truth of God, it may come to you through God using me, but it is all of God.

John 6:44,45 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

(it is an operation of futility to go looking for God, He knows exactly where we are at, at all times. He will come seeking us in the time He has preordained it to be, and again, not one second before. Therefore, it behooves us individually to be prepared to answer His call and His will when He does)

Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

How many times must God continue on reminding us that things are to be done His way and not how we decide to worship Him by worshiping Him in following after the ways of this counterfeit Christian world and attaching the name of His Son Jesus Christ onto paganism and the idolatry of following after Baal, Nimrod or the sun god Saturn, all one and the same identity, in their evil, satanic anti-God celebration called Saturnalia, after they have attached the name of Christ to it, now being called Christ-mass or Christmas? The Word of God as witnessed here has a lot to say about that. Please, drink deeply of the message that the Apostle Paul would have us all to understand.

Colossians 2:1-22 (NIV)

I want you to know how hard I am contending for you and for those at Laodicea, and for all who have not met me personally. My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments. For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how disciplined you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.

Spiritual Fullness in Christ

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. 11 In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self-ruled by the flesh was put off when you were circumcised by Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with Him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.

13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, (take note here that Christ has already forgave us that believe… all of our sins) 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

Freedom from Human Rules

16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. 18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind. 19 They have lost connection with the head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.

20 Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 21 “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? 22 These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings.

All of the pagan originated so called holidays that the counterfeit Christians celebrate, thinking that they are pleasing God, are instead an abomination to Him. They all have spouted off at what a wonderful time and season it is, then mouthing merry Christmas as a diversionary tactic as they elbow themselves through the crowd no matter who has to suffer. They have one thing only in mind, “Be the first, get the most”. God looks down and sees the get process going into full swing, as folks crawl over one another at the department stores trying to be first at getting their hands on whatever it is that has become the latest trend this year. Shoving, pushing, using foul language wrestling one another to the floor at the same time others have occupied themselves with a good old fashion knock down drag out of survival of the fittest.  

Isaiah 29:13 Therefore the Lord said: "These people draw near to Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. Their worship of Me is but rules taught by men.

I wonder, do any of these words of God have any effect on your mind, heart and soul? Or are they running off your back and psyche like water off a duck? We make a giant mistake in judgment when we just follow along with the deceived crowd that continues on year after year paying tribute to Satan, the god of this world when they get knee deep in the paganized so called Christian celebrations of idolatry being pawned off as God sanctioned, God ordained or being authorized by Jesus Christ whom God the Father has given all authority in all heaven and earth, as seen here below in Matthew.

Matthew 28:18. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

Mark 7:7 They worship Me in vain; they teach as doctrine the precepts of men.'

I will continue to remind you that the words spoken here are not mine, they are the words spoken by Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. If I were to tell you these things on my own you would be foolish to listen to them and pay any attention at all to them. But, by the same token, knowing they are from the word of God and you have the ability to check them out to make certain, now it is upon you to verify and follow or to ignore and suffer the consequences.

Colossians 2:22 These will all perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings.

Below we can learn another aspect about one more of the many negative effects that the pagan originated idolatrous Christmas season and its celebration, after it took on the name of Jesus Christ to cause it to be accepted and thought of as being ordained by God. Originally being a pagan season of idolatry in the worship and reverence to their pagan god Saturn. A god of agriculture that needed sun light to warm the ground for a good planting and then onto a good harvest season. The people of God were drawn into idolatry by burning their own babies and little children alive to appease their sun god Saturn. In a celebration known as Saturnalia where all law and order were suspended for several days as all sorts of deviltry, disorder, drunkenness, the being naked and singing in the streets, rape and molestation of every nature was allowed, as was temple prostitutes that took on all comers. The off-spring from these horizontal Mambo’s was often what produced the baby sacrifice for the following year in the egregious, anti-God festival Saturnalia. Now having the name changed to Christmas. Where the pedophiles drag out their red suits and hustle on down to the department stores for a merry season of molestation as seen below.    

GARDEN CITY, Mo. -- He was trusted by many and is part of many holiday memories for families in Garden City, Mo. Because the town population is less than 2,000 people, Garden City Chief of Police Thomas Alber said there's a real possibility 36-year-old Anthony Hall has come into contact with many children in the town.

Anthony HallOfficers arrested Hall Monday morning at his job at Auto Zone in Harrisonville. He's charged with child molestation. The victim is a six-year-old girl. Hall is known for dressing up like Santa Claus around the holidays and can be seen in photos on social media, even in a 2014 Christmas picture on the police department's Facebook page. Chief Alber said, "People with these tendencies gravitate toward areas where children are accessible and available. They’re tough cases; they’re cases that hit many people right in the heart."

Investigators said when the girl told her mother, she told the victim not to tell and continued living in the same home as Hall. Court documents said both Hall and the victim's mother denied everything at first but changed their stories after they were shown illustrations the girl gave investigators. Chief Alber said besides the police department, other investigating agencies are involved, like the Missouri Department of Social Services. He said, "Children go through special interviews with specially trained forensic investigators."

The chief said working the case took months, but Hall's arrest was timely. "Especially being the beginning of November where people would begin to book Christmas parties that might be employing this individual and allowing him access to more children," Alber said.With four daughters of his own, Chief Alber said he's glad a man facing these types of charges is off the streets."When the child’s a victim, it’s especially difficult," Chief Alber said. "We take a great deal of time and care in investigating these cases."Hall admitted to investigators he's been accused in the past of inappropriate sexual contact with each of his own three children.

On Wednesday, McHenry County Court imposed the sentence on 33-year-old Taylor Blaul from Crystal Lake for violating sex-offender laws. It’s after he sported a Santa Claus costume at a Christmas fundraiser at a local animal shelter, the Chicago Tribune reports.

In 2015, Blaul had to register as a sex offender for life after being convicted for molesting a 11-year-old boy on several occasions, according to local media. He was given a sentence of four months in jail and three years of probation, which was due to expire in 2018. Last December, Blaul was asked to replace a man, who usually plays Santa at the Animal House Shelter. However, a local woman who came with her son to adopt a dog recognized him and reported him to police. She told the court on Wednesday that Blaul had a boy sitting on his lap while posing for a photo, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Assistant State’s Attorney Victor Escarcida said that Blaul “knew well and good dressing up as Santa was against the law with his status. “The official stressed that Blaul signed a document, that specifically mentioned playing Santa Claus as taboo. “He was working in a place where you expect kids to be present. Children love dogs, and they love Santa Claus,” he said, adding it was “improper” on Blaul’s side.

The offender said he was “caught off guard” and apologized to the judge. According to his lawyer, the shelter’s management were aware of Blaul’s convictions.

  • It was just a traffic stop, until police in New Jersey found a crack pipe, empty crack baggies and hypodermic needles in a man’s car early Monday morning — right next to the Santa suit he uses as a Toys for Tots volunteer Santa Claus.

    “This is the guy who has our kids sitting in his lap,” Capt. Robert Kaiser told the Hackensack Daily Voice. 
    “The crack pipe and Santa Claus costume were in plain view.”

    Charles R. Smith, a 66-year-old retired transit worker from Pompton Lakes, N.J., was arrested Monday on two counts of drug paraphernalia and one count of possession of hypodermic needles. Amidst all the other child safety concerns parents face — 
    at school or even at home — it’s news that could make parents think twice about whose lap they’re plunking their little ones down onto this holiday season for those classic photo-ops.

    Despite the fact that we live in a culture that ruthlessly and remorselessly fat-shames, age-shames, and man-shames, most of us are willing to give Santa Claus a pass because he gives us tons of free stuff.

    Regardless of his fat old maleness—and in most cases, his unforgivable whiteness—we see beyond all those birth defects and have formed a fond and warm emotional attachment to Santa. We see him as a giver, not a taker. Rather than molesting small children, he hugs them. He brings families together instead of murdering them 
    en masse. He gives us candy rather than beating us to death for stealing it from him.

    That’s why the following stories are all so sickening and disheartening. It shatters childhood innocence to learn that Santa Claus is an a-hole.

    1. Mall Santa beats elderly woman to death for allegedly stealing his chocolates

    Elgin Clarke. (Fulton County Sheriff’s Department)

    An Atlanta
    Santa—hey, that rhymes!— Elkin Clarke was working at a mall one grim December day in 2004 when he accused 74-year-old Christian evangelist Annie Nelson of swiping chocolates from him. He grabbed a wooden 2×4 and beat her unconscious with it. She died six weeks later from her injuries. “She was stealing my stuff,” Clarke said in his defense. “I asked [her] ten to fifteen times not to touch my stuff.” Despite such a seemingly airtight alibi, Clarke was found guilty of murder.

    2. Seventy-three-year-old Santa molests his 11-year-old female elf

    Zay Harold Jones. (Rutherford County Sheriff’s Department)

    Zay Harold Jones pleaded guilty to sexual assault on a female child in 1981. He pleaded guilty to sexual assault on an adult female in 1991. Despite such an unsavory track record, a North Carolina business called Santa’s House hired him as their go-to Santa for three years running beginning in 2002. During the Christmas holidays in 2004, an eleven-year-old girl who’d been hired as his personal “elf” accused him of molesting her. Jones was found guilty of taking indecent liberties with a minor and hopefully will never again be able to sexually traumatize young women under cloak of Santa’s hat and beard.

    3. Man dressed as Santa in Berlin spikes beverages with date-rape drug

    Despite their horrible Nazi heritage, some Germans still celebrate the Christmas season in the hopes that someday in the distant future God may deign to forgive them. One of their Christmas traditions involves handing out free alcoholic beverages in public markets to help one another warm their hearts and perhaps forget momentarily about the Holocaust. 
    In 2011 came a series of at least ten instances where unassuming revelers accepted drinks from a male stranger, only to begin puking and losing consciousness. In many instances the man reportedly wore no costume; but in at least one case he was dressed as Santa and gave a 15-year-old girl two shots of schnapps that had been laced with an odorless and flavorless date-rape drug. The perpetrator has never been found.

    4. Santa for underprivileged children steals thousands from charity fund

    Robert Joseph Papaleoni. (Cobb County Sheriff’s Office)

    With his chubby cheeks and white beard, seventy-year-old 
    Ronald Papaleoni was one of those fellows who looks like Santa Claus even when he isn’t in costume. He founded a charitable organization called the Joy Foundation that saw him bringing happiness and treats to disadvantaged children in the Atlanta area. Unfortunately, he was also siphoning public funds into his alleged “charity” and was found guilty of five counts of theft amounting to what prosecutors claimed was $150,000 in embezzlement, very little of which apparently went to the impoverished children he’d appointed himself to help. I think we can all agree that this qualifies him as a jerkasaurus of the highest order.

    'I was Satan,' not Santa, molester says; Ex-shopping mall Santa gets 26-year jail term for child rape. Feb 28, 1998

      
    SEATTLE -- A 72-year-old former shopping mall Santa Claus hung his head and wept Friday as his son asked that his father be given the maximum sentence for child rape.

"I was Satan," Ronald Carroll McDonald later sobbed as he apologized to his family and to relatives and friends of his victims in the courtroom. "I know everyone wishes me hell."

McDonald pleaded guilty in November to four counts of first-degree child rape and three charges of first-degree child molestation. King County Superior Court Judge Norma Huggins sentenced him to the maximum prison term of 26 1/2 years.

His lawyer, Michael Danko, said McDonald realized he was effectively receiving a life sentence. Danko said that before the hearing, McDonald told him, "I can't ask for forgiveness. What I have done is unforgivable."

McDonald was forgiven, however, by Faith Thayer, who said she was assaulted by McDonald decades ago. McDonald was never charged with that crime.

"What Mr. McDonald did to me doesn't compare to what he did to the ones he loved," she told the judge. Her religion, she said, allowed her to "offer forgiveness as an act of my own will."

The white-haired McDonald, dressed in a red jail jumpsuit, cried softly as she spoke.

McDonald, of suburban Lake Forest Park, was arrested in October after family members confronted him about molesting a young relative.

A former janitor at the University of Washington Medical Center, McDonald played Santa for years at the Lake Forest Park Towne Centre and was a volunteer child-care worker at the Seattle hospital and at his church.

The charges against him involved four children, one of them a 6-year-old girl who is related to McDonald and the rest all under 11, in incidents dating back to 1994, investigators said.

In court documents, prosecutors say McDonald admitted to police that his sexual contacts with children extended over the past 60 years and included at least 45 victims.

His son, Craig McDonald, quietly but firmly told the court that his father should receive the maximum sentence.

"Our family was raised in a loving way," he said, glancing only briefly at his father. "While my dad has done many loving things, it's been proven that even good people can do bad things to good people."

The elder McDonald, his voice cracking, then told the judge he wanted to apologize to all his victims, though he realized that would not set things right. "I've devastated their lives. It's as if I killed them," he said.

Huggins granted a defense request that McDonald be recommended for confinement at the state's treatment center for sexual offenders. Danko said McDonald wanted to make himself available to researchers studying the causes of sexual deviancy.

At a news conference afterward, Craig McDonald said he has struggled to come to terms with his father. He said he was unaware of his father's crimes until last year.

"It's a tough thing but it just goes to prove you have no guarantees in life," the son said.

He said he was glad his father took responsibility. He recommended the maximum term because there had to be accountability and, "I've always been raised to do the right thing."

He also said he could forgive his dad.

"It's easy for me to forgive because I still don't understand how all that could happen," he said. "I have no doubt that he had a genuine love for children. But that dark side also was there."

WHTM Staff - HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - A Dauphin County man who worked as a mall Santa Claus will spend at least 15 years in prison for sexually molesting a young girl for eight years, beginning when she was four years old.

Stephen Carruthers, 56, of Susquehanna Township, was sentenced Tuesday by Court of Common Pleas Judge William Tully to a maximum of 30 years in prison, followed by 20 years of probation.

Tully also designated Carruthers a sexually violent predator under Pennsylvania's Megan's Law, meaning police will notify neighbors if he ever gets out of prison.

Carruthers, who played Santa Claus at various Central Pennsylvania malls for about 13 years, was convicted by a jury in October on charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, aggravated indecent assault of a child, indecent assault, indecent exposure, corruption of a minor, unlawful contact with a minor and terroristic threats.

Prosecutors said he abused the girl when she visited his home. She testified she was frightened to tell anyone about hundreds of sexual abuse incidents because Carruthers threatened to kill her and her family.

Carruthers, who had been ordered to have no contact with the girl, boasted to the jury that he had written over 300 letters to the girl and that no one had the right to stop him.

At sentencing, prosecutors said Carruthers told Tully that he attended Princeton University and was admitted into United States Air Force Academy. It was revealed later in the hearing that while Carruthers may have attended those institutions, he never graduated.

Carruthers also told the court at sentencing that he is seeking a publisher for a children's book he has written.

Cape Girardeau Co. Santa Claus charged with child sex crimes.

By Crystal Britt | August 12, 2015 at 2:56 PM CDT - Updated July 10 at 1:27 PM

CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - A Cape Girardeau County man, who has played the role of Santa Claus, faces child sex crime charges. Jeffrey Moffat, 55, is behind bars on $50,000 cash only bond. He's charged with first degree statutory rape, for having sex with a person under the age of 14. Moffat is also charged with first degree statutory sodomy. According to local law enforcement, Moffat has played the role of Santa in the Jackson area for nearly two decades. Heartland News has learned that Moffat was the Santa Claus on the Iron Mountain Railway in Jackson on the Polar Express. According to the probable cause statement, Moffat is accused of touching a 6-year-old girl inappropriately on more than one occasion. During a medical interview and examination, the child reportedly disclosed that Moffat had sexual intercourse with her. According to the court documents, the incidents happened at Moffat's home in Cape Girardeau County. On July 24, 2015 detectives with the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Office interviewed Jeffrey Moffat.
            
According to the probable cause, Moffat denied touching the child in a sexual manner, but said at the conclusion of the interview that "Children don't lie". "Never in a million years would I have dreamt that, he is just not that way," said Moffat's girlfriend. Patricia Lynch is Jeffery Moffat's girlfriend. Lynch says she's known him for 30 years, and there's no way he committed these crimes.

(I would like to add a personal note here from my own personal experience of dealing with child sexual abuse cases for an extended period of time perpetrated against my own innocent little granddaughter, by her mother’s live in policeman boyfriend. I dealt with many different folks legally connected and acquainted with child sexual abuse. One high up official from the Detroit, Michigan area during our conversation volunteered a startling admission. He told me in all of his years of dealing with child sexual abuse cases, that every single mother he had ever interviewed, had always taken the word of the perpetrator over her own daughter. It has always stuck in my mind.) Leith. Cunningham

The lady continues to defend

He is just not guilty of this crime, I know that, I feel it in my heart," she said. The story had a lot of you commenting on Facebook, many of you 'outraged' by the news. One person says the story makes her stomach hurt. Another wrote, "Knowing my son has sat on his lap the past two years makes me so sick to my stomach."

Many of you may know Moffatt from the years he portrayed Santa Clause for the Iron Mountain Railway. The President Cheryl Huffman came to Moffatt's defense. Huffman said she believes Moffat is innocent and says she's shocked to hear about the charges facing the person who she calls a "friend" and "valuable volunteer."

Moffat is due in court on August 18, 2015

SANTA CLAUS: AMERICA'S GREATEST PEDOPHILE IS PRAISED AND HONORED BY AMERICA!

THE BLACK FIST / 11 years ago / 1 Later on, I'll give a detailed history on Santa Claus, aka, St. Nicholas, St. Nick, and so on.  Saint?  He was no saint.  He was an "aint" like the rest of them.  He was a bonafide child molester!  He was rapist of little boys!  

And no parent in their right mind would want their child around a child molester, let alone, sit on his lap (what a way to fuel sexual urges in a child molester by letting children sit on his lap, you so called Christians!) and tell him what toy they want from him (talk about enticing a child in return for sexual favors!).  

There's the problem.  The parents don't have a "right" mind.  They lose their ability to think "right" around the winter holidays, for the sake of spending money and false feelings of peace!  

The stupidity and major neglect of those parents who support and encourage their child to be fond of the child molester called Santa, is easily seen by the past and present parents who were/are so murderously angry at law makers and city council leaders, when children are molested by priests and other adults, and when a child molester moves into their neighborhood, that they will, one time out of the year, teach their children contrary, that its ok to accept toys from a child molester, aka, Santa.

What a low down shame!  What irresponsible and ignorant parents those children have been birthed to!

Sex offender, 54, convicted of raping an 11-year-old boy, arrested working in a McDonald's as Santa Claus

Norman Burbank, 54, taken into custody Saturday in Burbank, Texas

Sentenced to 12 years prison for the 1992 sexual assault of 11-year-old.

Police determined he had not broken the law by working at the McDonald's

He was not on probation or parole. Under Texas law sex offenders are not allowed to work as a limousine and bus driver, taxi cab driver or amusement park operator.

A convicted violent sex offender was allegedly caught working as Santa Claus in Virginia at a Petco Christmas event where children were present.

Leonard Kidd, 37, was hired by the Petco store in Wytheville, where he played Santa Claus during the weekend, WBDJ reported.

Kidd pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual battery in 2002 for assaulting a six-year-old boy and was just released from prison last year under the condition that he stay away from events where children would be present, the Roanoke Times reports.

WBDJ reports that Kidd posed for pictures with children and pets at the event.

Kidd renewed his sex offender registration in October, and lists the Wytheville Petco as his employment, according to the Virginia State Police website.

A spokesperson for Petco said they take the safety of their customers seriously, and they are cooperating with authorities.

We can confirm that the individual in question is no longer at Petco and we are cooperating with local law enforcement,” the spokesperson says.

Following his conviction in 2002, Kidd was sentenced to six years in prison and was scheduled for release in 2009.

A clinical psychologist who evaluated him, however, states that he had a “high risk to offend” and scored on a test that put him “in a group of sex offenders who demonstrated a 100 percent probability of violent recidivism within seven years,” Southwest Virginia Today reported.

Under the state’s Violent Predators Act, which had just gone into effect a few years before his sentence ended, Kidd was involuntarily confined beyond his sentence at a state treatment facility for sex offenders until 2015.

The Virginia State Department of Corrections is investigating the incident.

A 54-year-old man convicted of sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy in Ohio has been caught working as a Santa Claus at a Texas McDonald's.

Norman Burbank was sentenced to 12 years prison for the 1992 rape of the child, but recently moved to Baytown, east of Houston.

On Saturday police received an anonymous tip the sex offender was acting as Santa Claus at the fast food restaurant and had children in his lap, according to Click 2 Houston, along with a photo of him taken on a cell phone.

However, after being arrested and detained by police, Burbank was let go, after authorities determined he had not violated any laws by putting on the red suit.

Detained: Norman Burbank, 54, was taken into custody Saturday at a McDonald's store in Baytown, following an anonymous call. He is seen here in a photo from his Facebook (left) and a police mug shot (right)

Snap: A customer at the McDonald's is believed to have taken this picture of Burbank working at the store and sent it to police, who then handcuffed him and took him into custody

Scene: The restaurant released a statement about the incident saying they are investigating 

Unless a sex offender is on parole or probation that that stipulates, they stay away from children under 17, it isn't against the law to have dealings with children.

'What's right isn't always legal,' legal analyst Brian Wice told the station. 'And what's legal isn't always right.'Local police seemed just as surprised. 'Him putting on a Santa Claus costume and having children in his lap, however unsettling that is for parents to hear, it was not a violation of Texas law,' Eric Freed from the Baytown Police Department told Click 2 Houston. Burbank was approached by the news outlet at his home. He answered the door to the camera crew, but told them he had no comment about his detainment or his job. 

'No comment': A local news crew went to Burbank's home in Baytown, but he would not talk about his job as a Santa Claus at McDonald's.

Santa Claus molested me!!!

Posted in the African-American Forum

  

#1 Dec 14, 2011 I awoke this morning and had a flashback. I was 9 years old when it happened. I was sitting on Santa's lap, and it’s as clear as day, now. That damn Santa dude molested me. Yep, he sure as heck did. He had his hands all over my little "thingy" and I even think he penetrated and rammed me up my little butt! Yep, he was a nasty, perverted Santa. He did the deed on me, and had me come back seven more times that year to "clarify" my order for Christmas. Well, fast forward to 25 years later, and now I'm 34 years old. I know where that Santa dude is this Christmas. He's still at the mall, hitting on little kids like I used to be. So, should me and my friends go visit Santa and, "kick his @$$"????? Or, should I let it go? N.Y. / REGION

Postal Service Tells Gift-Givers Not to Help Santa

By N. R. KLEINFIELDDEC. 18, 2008

Continue reading the main story Share This Page

For decades of Christmases, it had been a gratifying way to function as a substitute Santa Claus. Every holiday season, thousands of New Yorkers trooped to Manhattan’s main post office and sifted through heaps of dream-encased letters that children had scribbled to the big guy at the North Pole. They picked out the ones that tickled the heart and responded with gifts for otherwise empty stockings. Then came Thursday. Gift-giving souls who reported to Operation Santa Claus at the post office on Eighth Avenue and 33rd Street, looking for the familiar cardboard boxes bursting with letters, were instead greeted with no boxes, no letters and no explanation.

The United States Postal Service abruptly shut down public participation in all the Operation Santa programs — in New York and other major cities across the country — at 1 p.m. Wednesday, without offering post offices or letter-seeking citizens any understanding of why. A Postal Service official in Washington, after an initial, limited acknowledgment of a “privacy breach,” said that at one of the programs, not New York’s, a man whom a letter carrier recognized as a registered sex offender had “adopted” a letter

I am doing my part by willingly spending my time day and night in helping you the reader become aware of just how bad, evil, demented and deceived that we the people of our present-day society have become in following after SATAN as oppose to our Almighty God of all heaven and earth. I know it is unintentional and you haven’t got the slightest inkling of what I am talking about, because it all seems good and upright to you, but to God it is all an abomination that He hates. We live here right smack dab in the middle of the Babylon of confusion, that God tells us all to come out of in Revelation 18:4. How long will we as a people whole-heartedly accept and believe such nonsense as Satan has shoved down our naïve necks and our gullible willingness to receive it, before we say, enough is enough and begin to seek and search out the truth of God on our own? I have already done that many years ago and God has been revealing more of His truth to me along the way. Deceived mankind has fastened the name of Christ to a pagan celebrated festival called Saturnalia where they burned their little children alive to their god, profaning and taking the name of God in vain while now calling it Christ mass or Christmas. Do we want to continue to be a part of that?  

We have backslid to where even doing good, is being misused

When postal officials confronted the man, the official said, he said he was sincerely trying to do a good deed, but postal inspectors nonetheless retrieved the letter and notified the family of the child. The Postal Service, indicating that the closing down of all of Operation Santa might be temporary, said that it felt it was wise to take the precaution. “This is a program that we have promoted for 100 years that is very near and dear to the Postal Service,” said Sue Brennan, a spokeswoman for the program. “Everyone wants to believe in Santa. For us to stop this, we feel we are doing the right thing.

Sue Brennan is absolutely right in having the process stopped that allows for pedophiles to rush on down to the post office and pick out a letter to begin applying their charm and grooming process on one more innocent little child that has no idea or concept of what the future has in store for them, as the communication between them and the child molester begins to take place.

One more reminder of Christian authorized paganism

Below is an artist’s depiction of a priest handing a little child to their sun god Saturn. Whose arms and body have been heated to red hot in which to burn the child sacrifice alive in his arms. Other priests are beating loudly on drums to drown out the blood curdling shrieks and death cries of the babies so the fathers cannot hear them. This is a reminder to those who get all wrapped up in celebrating Christ-mass or Christmas every year after the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has been attached to such a rank and rotten idolatrous celebration that burned their own little babies and children in fire to their pagan god. How is it possible that any person of the human family can become so ignorant of the truth of God, to continue on celebrating such a foul, evil and demented season, and believe it is from our Father God? As if He would ordain and be pleased with such a filthy practice that His people had taken the name of His Son and attached it to the highest level of idolatry and paganism, and now celebrate it as something good, upright and pleasing to Him, by calling it Christmas. Satan the god of this world must almost laugh himself to death, every time he stops and thinks how easy it was to deceive so many of the people of God that all consider themselves to be enlightened by the truth, but they instead have easily been hoodwinked into accepting and believing lies of monumental proportions.

A picture of a giant iron god sitting down and being heated up to red hot with out stretched arms and hands in which to receive a live child sacrifice to be offered to their pagan sun god Saturn, did not transfer over to be copied here. ( I will explain) Where a crowd of folks with their own little children and babies waited in line to sacrifice them to this horrid sun God to coax him back in the spring, to warm the ground for a good planting season and then a good harvest season in the fall. It took place in a festival called Saturnine that ended at or about the 25th of December. To deceive the faithful they easily took a pagan practice of idolatry that had always been celebrated on or about the 25th of December, the shortest day of the year where the sun would be on it return back as the days became longer, to warm the spring grounds. They just used a slight of hands gesture to make it seem logical and above board. They had always worshiped and served the sun god, and now they claimed they were worshiping the son of god. By this means they hoped to please both pagans and the Christians. But it has backfired, instead of doing away with idolatry and paganism, Christianity all around the world have adopted it as the truth of God.

The laws were all suspended during Saturnalia and deviltry of every nature prevailed for several days. Singing naked in the streets became the fore-runner of singing Christmas carols in the streets, as all sorts of other anti-god practices took place. They provided temple prostitutes to take on all comers in fornication, adultery, and every other vice and nasty to the core ways, of unrighteousness that would enter their evil and demented minds. The babies being produced from these ungodly practices, often became the first to be sacrificed the following season or year. I have a suggestion for all of you who celebrate this rotten, slimy, anti-god pagan slop and festival of idolatry, after the name of Christ has been taken and fastened to it, and now calling it Christ-mass or Christmas. Every time you hear some one announce a "MERRY CHRISTMAS" to you or others around you. Stop for only an instant maybe, and reflect upon what it is really all about. Then ask yourself if you really, truly want to continue on being a part of this blatant deception that this world of the counterfeit Christian church is pawning off as the truth of God.  

It would do us all well to carry around in our minds eye, the above picture of the rank and rotten child sacrifice of innocent little children and babies to their sun god Saturn, to be roasted alive to appease their pagan god. Where Christianity under the influence of the Catholic church took the name of Christ and fastened it onto the festival called Saturnalia along with all of its evil anti-God authorized law breaking, where they now call it Christ mass or Christmas. Now so-called Christians all around the world celebrate it as if it was something upright and good, but stinks to high heaven in the nostrils of our Almighty God.It never ceases to amaze me of how naïve and gullible full grown and mature human kind can be in allowing themselves to be taken in by such ungodly nonsensical fairy tales as that woven around the Christian Christmas of paganism and idolatry).

Offering to Molech (illustration from the 1897 Bible Pictures and What They Teach Us by Charles Foster)

The vocalization Molek occurs eight times in the Masoretic Text, predominantly (five times) in Leviticus:

Leviticus 18:21 "And thou shalt not let any of thy seed (little children and babies) pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD."

Christians today do profane as well as the taking the name of God in vain, by perpetuating and keeping a lie alive one generation after another. Reasoning that they want to keep that old-time religion. “It was good enough for Pa and Ma, its good enough for me”. Without enough gumption to seek and search out the truth of God on their own. Here in this writing I am doing it for you, but how will you respond? Will you be thankful and grateful or will it just offend you? I do not expect most to accept it, because they, His own people didn’t accept or believe Jesus Christ when He came to earth two thousand years ago and told us all the truth either. Instead, God’s own people back then killed Him for bringing them the truth. Nothing has changed and has only gotten worse, Christ would not be allowed to teach the truth of God in any of the 41 thousand and growing number of so-called Christian churches around the world today. The Christian churches around the world have not even tried to do away with the Idolatry of the pagans, they have adopted them all, only celebrating them in different ways today.

Leviticus 20:2: "Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, (these are the people of God) whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones."

These things may not be allowed in our present day as God has brought us out from the old covenant and placed us into the new. Still, God tells us He changes not, He is the same yesterday, today and forever. We can therefore see and understand how he feels about celebrating of pagan days, times and seasons that have their origins all mixed into idolatry that He commands against.

Leviticus 20:3: "And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed (innocent little babies) unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name."

Leviticus 20:4: "And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, (See how God has authorized the killing of any man that allowed this to happen to one of his own children. Seems to me to be a pretty good indicator of how God feels about celebrating pagan times and seasons, after attaching the name of His Son unto it, and calling it God ordained) when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not"

The law of the old covenant was to kill them. Sounds like pretty serious business to me. Enough so, we would do ourselves well to think deeply on this issue and to contemplate the future consequences that may very well be in store for those who take the word of God lightly and dismiss it with a shrug of their shoulders.

Leviticus 20:5: "Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people."

God is not addressing atheists, antagonist or unbelievers about these things, not at all. Here it is talking about the special people of God back in biblical times. Today God is talking to US, His people calling ourselves Christians today. The word of God tells us to choose this day whom we will follow, will it be God our Father, or will ,it be the Satan the god of this world in 2nd Corinthians 4:4?

Before I go on and get into the next section that I will write about the origins of Christmas, I would like to tell you some things I have witnessed for myself about those that go against the word and way of God to celebrate paganism and idolatry times and seasons as if they were commanded by God. Myself and my family have even had to suffer greatly in times past when because of custom, ritual and the traditions of men, I thought it was a man’s duty to provide a merry Christmas for their family, as something owed to them. Thank God, over a half century ago God brought the truth about Christmas and most all other holidays and church doctrine were satanic lies so deeply imbedded and entrenched into counterfeit Christianity, that the actual truth of God had all but been hidden under and within the lies that Satan has successfully anchored in the minds and hearts of God’s own people.

Where most all of the so-called Christians of today accept, believe, and teach unto others, the lies that Satan has imbedded into their heads as the truth of God, that does not have one iota of truth at all left as the truth. What a feather it must be as Satan rubs his hands together and lays back licking his chops with a giant smile on his face that is about to break into an all-out laughter, for how simple and easy it was to corrupt and to bring man and woman kind into his anti-God web of lies, and have most all of them accept and believe them to be the truth of God Himself.

I remember one Christmas when we didn’t have anything at all. I had sold everything I could get my hands on to come up with about one hundred dollars. I went to a store and spent almost all of it on junk of one sort or another. Then I waited until late on Christmas eve and went looking for a Christmas tree already after dark in a tree lot in Sumpter, Michigan. They had one of the most beautiful trees I had ever seen, it was all painted white and I begin to bargain with a kid at the lot. I mentioned that in another hour or so he would have to pay to have it taken to the dump. I offered him two dollars for it and he took the money and I took the tree to my car. I had the trunk open and had stuffed the tree into the back of it, when suddenly a man came running down the sidewalk yelling at me at the top of his lungs.

He accused me of taking advantage of the guy at the lot as he threw the two dollars down at my feet and grabbed hold on the tree in my trunk. As he gave it a mighty yank in the steamed-up condition he was in, I at the same time pushed the trunk lid down as hard as I could and it stripped off about half of the branches, as the man went on back cursing and swearing dragging his now scraggly looking tree along the way. Now, I had about a half of a Christmas tree in the trunk in stripped off branches. My wife, myself and our two little kids had gone on back to our mobile home and begin to decorate the place with the bows that had been stripped and left in the trunk. It all looked really good and It served its purpose and gave us that nice pine smell within, and we had two dollars left over, that the mad man gone hog wild had thrown down at my feet.

I had lived more than my share of the time in following after the ways of this world until God had finally called me out of it at age thirty-two. By that time, I had lost everything that we had worked for and earned three different times. God had finally gotten my attention and fortunately for myself and family, I had received a spiritual awakening. God was now adding common sense, wisdom, knowledge and understanding as I began to follow His ways. In eight years at the age of forty we became totally debt free. We owned a brand-new car and an all paid for home, not because of our own smarts, but by having the truth given to us and the wisdom now to follow it.

Christmas time is a big money and moral drain on finances and personal character. I have seen things happen to people that go all out to celebrate this nasty to its evil core paganized holiday trying to get their own slice of getting all you can handle of happiness in a bottle, wife swapping, drunken sex orgies, over extending themselves in every way possible, little kids left home taking their own chance of surviving a possible Christmas tree fire that kills all to many family members each year. Adultery, fornication, sodomy, and unfaithfulness that is slowly causing marriage to become obsolete. Broken homes run by single parent families where none of the kids last names match the others. Where the whole family structure fits perfectly into the paganized celebration of idolatry, where the kids are often the ones running the home, because the guilt-ridden parent allows everything under the sun to happen to their innocent little babies and children. The parent not reigning themselves in, taking part in all sorts of kinky things, cannot bring themselves to correct their vulnerable little kids. So, on it goes in our corrupt society with the tail wagging the dog.

I grew up in an area where there were broken families that I knew personally that suffered unbelievable horror on a regular daily basis. One family with both a father and a mother, both of them being drunks. The word was out all around the county, anybody was welcome to come on over and bring booze, they kept their lovely little 14 or 15-year-old daughter all dressed up in a Daisy Mae outfit that didn’t leave much for the imagination. They would traditionally invite the one bringing the booze to take little Daisy Mae upstairs and play games in the bedroom while they drank themselves unconscious oblivion.

Another mother in the neighborhood would load all the kids up in her car, go to town and park it on the street and leave all the kids in it to fend for themselves. Subjecting themselves to every pervert in town that knew they would be parking there at the curb on most any night. While she would go into the local bar and let someone buy her alcohol while the kids sat in the cold car. Waiting hour after hour as they stared at the door of the bar, hungry and shivering for what must have seemed like forever to them. They were being used like baiting a trap, where they take a goat and stake it out in the woods to bring out the predators. Her young teenage daughter was completely vulnerable and had to deal with the cards that life with her mother had dealt to them. Sexual molestation wasn’t spoken of back then, but it existed and flourished on a regular basis.

Another family in the area where a father and mother both lived and spent their time drinking and having new kids all of the time, finally outgrew the home they lived in and couldn’t support any more kids. They had twins and gave them away. Then as they started getting older the incest by the older boys and their sisters began. For some unknown reason all of the boys turned out to be about a half of a French fry short of a happy meal, that all, talked using pigeon English, while the girls all seemed to be normal, likable and with plenty of smarts, regardless of their goofy environment and family life style.

One large Irish family with a father that was tougher than a keg of nails and could whip about everyone in the neighborhood, and at one time or another probably did. A friend of mine had gone over to visit him one day or ask a favor of some kind. The old man had about a dozen kids running loose around the yard, mostly naked and in and out of the barn like a bunch of unrestrained, south of the border wild Comanchie Indians. As my friend and the old man entered into the barn, he was shocked and flabbergasted to see a brother and sister in the naked prone position making hay while the sun shined. At the sight of the old man they just jumped up and scattered for high ground. The old man put on a show of being surprised and a little disappointed with them, saying to them as they crawled out of the hay, “AW, you kids hadn’t ought to be doing that again”. 

Another little side trip Christmas season brings upon the world is a spike in all types of crime. I am convinced that the jolly Christmas yuletide season with all of its party down atmosphere that surrounds it was at least part of the reason that my brother Glade had a brain tumor operation botched in the VA hospital in Durham, North Carolina on December 22, 1961. They had removed the tumor but, in the process, they had damaged to much of his brain. They had transfused him with 22 units of blood before stopping and giving up, allowing him to just bleed out there in the recovery room. Lying to me by telling me that the only body functioning was his ability to breathe. I knew they had lied to me as I stood by his bed holding his hand as he gurgled and choked out his last breath of life.

With tears running down both sides of his face. As you might have already guessed by now, no one needs to do me any great favors by wishing me a Merry Christmas. I blame in part the Christmas spirits in a bottle being passed around at the time, diverting the surgeon’s business and skilled hands away from the life and death operation to remove the brain tumor. Christmas is plain and simply a time set apart to worship and serve in replacing God with something that stinks to high heaven like an outside toilet that some deceived Christians have thrown a silk and lace cloth over, sprayed a little Febreze on it to make it seem good, upright and proper. It fooled me at one time as a kid, but not any longer, for which I will be forever grateful and thankful. May the God of all heaven and earth open your eyes to see with and your ears to hear with, and bring you and yours into the wonderful truth of knowing that all of us human beings are being made in the image and likeness of God, God in mankind is reproducing Himself. Christmas, because of its pagan and idolatrous roots and origins, has no place at all in the lives of true followers of God and His Son Jesus Christ.

Evil beyond measure

The length, width and depths of mankind’s depravity, carnal and evil nature, is beyond the ability of man to measure it, only the God of all heaven and earth knows well and for certain, of how far down into the gutter of filth and perversion we have traveled to have arrived here today being up to our arm pits in its very midst. Most of us have no concept what so ever of what is going on behind closed doors. I am here to reveal some of it to you, in hopes you will be able to bear it. Many years ago, in the Readers Digest I had read an article entitled, “Where the young ones are”. At that time, it had a 50,000-subscription list. It was being aimed at and to the pedophile community. A clear indication that by the subscription numbers, that it held great interest to a lot of pedophiles looking to interact with, molest, rape, hunt down and even kill children. I brought a message about it in and to the church I belonged to at the time. I would imagine by now their subscription list has grown 10, 20 or even 30-fold and more over that time years ago. Long enough for multiple millions of little kids having been abused in so many ungodly evil ways to count, up to and including a torturous, painful and bloody death.

A news story came to my attention a couple of years ago when so called conservative Supreme Court Judge Antoni Scalia was found dead in a West Texas motel of sorts, no different than Motel 6 in room size and décor, that dealt with the super-rich and influential movers and shakers. However, a great difference in the room cost of $600.00 per night. A secretive back out of the way place away from prying eyes or out of ear shot. The official name was The Cibolo Creek Ranch, owned by one Poindexter a rich owner of a separate Dallas, Texas business. The ranch became known as Rent A Boy Ranch, where the rich and famous pedophiles got their jollies off on raping and molesting young kids. Where such well known elites such as Charly Sheen, Mick Jagger, Dick Cheney, George Bush, and Billy Graham had taken a turn or two at. In other words, those that make and enforce the laws upon us little ant like peons and explain what is right and wrong, are themselves steeped into the worst that this evil anti-god world has to offer. Among other perversions against kids brought into that area, for the express purpose of actually hunting them down and in some cases killing them. Who knows, maybe on vice president Dick Cheney’s hunting outing on Feb. 12, 2006, if the truth be known beyond the spin, did he perchance shoot Harry Whittington the attorney, mistaking him for a child being hunt down?

WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 - Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and wounded a prominent Austin, Tex., lawyer on Saturday while the two men were quail hunting in South Texas, firing a shotgun at the man while trying to aim for a bird, a member of the hunting party said. 

Mr. Cheney, a practiced hunter, shot the lawyer, Harry Whittington, on an outing at the Armstrong Ranch in South Texas. Mr. Whittington, 78, was taken by helicopter to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition in the intensive care unit on Sunday, according to Michele Trevino, a hospital spokeswoman.

Former Victim Claims Scalia Was a Pedophile Antonin Scalia (right) has died with no autopsy performed, but there’s another important issue: pedophilia. One former abuse victim makes the claim Scalia was a pedophile.

Scalia was a pedophile

ccording to SRA (Satanic ritual abuse) victim David Shurter. Justice Antonin Scalia, one of 9 judges on the US Supreme Court, died suddenly on February 12th/13th, 2016. His death has sparked intense curiosity and supposition, with many alternative media outlets claiming he was murdered. No autopsy was done on the body. Intellihub reports that William O. Ritchie, former head of criminal investigations for the DC police, wrote that he was stunned that no autopsy was performed, and former Army Intelligence officer Ray Starmann wrote that he was suspicious that foul play was involved. However, rather than focusing on whether he was assassinated, there is another important issue to be investigated about Scalia – pedophilia. If Scalia was a pedophile, was he part of the Satanic elite pedophilia network?

Claim: Scalia was a Pedophile and Satanic Ritual Abuser

Shurter is yet another in the long line of victims who have suffered Satanic ritual abuse. He tells how he was groomed in MK Ultra fashion until the age of 10. When he was 18, he went to Omaha, Nebraska to live with his biological mother, and soon got caught up in the massive international child sex slave and Satanic pedophilia network there. Senator John DeCamp, Ted Gunderson and others famously exposed the Omaha child sex ring in the 1990s, including in such books as The Franklin Coverup: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska. The documentary Conspiracy of Silence gives an overview of the issue. Like other victims such as Cathy O’Brien, Shurter names former NSA chief, colonel and open Satanist Michael Aquino as one of his abusers. Shurter not only claims that Scalia was a pedophile, but that Scalia was the head of the “cult” (i.e. the Satanic pedophilia ring) and that the abuse he perpetrated was just as extreme as Aquino’s. He writes on his blog:

This is as written, I haven’t changed anything

Scalia liked to fuck little boys. I know this from personal experience – as he was one of my primary abusers as a child and was one of the HEADS of the cult that abused me. He was a vile man who was such an extreme sadist that I find it hard to give words to his voracious appetites. I hated this man in ways that I can’t begin to explain and he rivaled Aquino in my abuse as a child.”

Gordon Duff of Veterans Today wrote the article Scalia Sleeps with the Fishes exposing the fact that Scalia was a pedophile and that he was killed at a rent boy ranch in Texas where the rich and famous go to indulge in pedophilia. Apparently, the article was originally banned from viewing in the US, but is still active at that hyperlink at the time of writing. Scalia was known for his provocative speech. Interestingly, he asked on several occasions why the Court should not also protect pedophiles since they protected gays. This may have seemed flippant at the time, as well as ignorant (by falsely lumping together homosexuality and pedophilia), but now these kinds of public statements can be read in a very different light …

It is going to be well worth your while and time to keep in mind and heart what it was that the so called conservative Supreme Court Judge Scalia had in the back of his mind when the article above says this.

Scalia asked on several occasions why the Court should not also protect pedophiles since they protected gays”.

Consider this, when I was young and growing up, no one that I knew of was a homosexual, at least if they were, they didn’t advertise it, they hid it through embarrassment, guilt and knowing it was wrong and not a normal thing to be doing, as well as being against the laws of God. They wouldn’t have advertised it, bragged about it or told anyone that they were diddling their own sister or brother either, for the same reason. No one would have bragged about incest and having sexual relations with their own son or daughter. All of these things happen on a regular basis, yet most people don’t go around announcing that they have been liberated from those old fashion rules and regulations of yesteryear. That is, not until our present society. The statue of Liberty that sits in New York harbor has liberated us all from having to follow any laws, we have been successfully liberated to do as we wish. God no longer has any influence to speak of on His own people calling themselves Christians. Here is how it works, I have even got a name for it. It is the “Creeping, Cringing, Crawling, Crud”. Known henceforth as the four C’s.

We will take judge Scalia’s question as an example, this is exactly how the unacceptable become the acceptable. The four C’s is a slow process, it may take weeks, months, years or even centuries to achieve. There are always those in the wings in the background that are sowing the seeds, same as Judge Scalia was doing to suit his own purpose. Feeling others out to test the water of resistance or acceptance. Tossing out something so farfetched as to curl up the toes of most thinking, reasoning people. Someone along the way, in support of normalizing homosexuality, while it was yet a sexual perversion to be hidden away in the darkest corners of one’s closet. Then probably because of their own persuasions and inclinations of having homosexual tendencies, and being in a leadership position to add weight to their influence on others, begin to toss out a word here and there concerning homosexuality and the judgments upon them being old fashion and out dated. Suggesting society bring it into the light of day as something good and up-right and cause it to become socially acceptable and to even be proud of.

Gradually now the four C’s begin to move ever so slowly forward. So slow that no one is watching, it is kind of like putting a frog in a pan of warm water on the burner of a stove, and turning it down really low. The frog sits there in a warm glow and gets into relaxing 101, he is happier that a woodpecker in a lumber yard. Things happened so slow and comfortable that he just sat there until he boiled to death. But guess what? Homosexuality is now not only acceptable, it is flaunted as something good and upright, and would be a death sentence for any politician to speak out against. Thanks to the liberal news media, the democratic party, the Hollywood elite and the devil and Satan that rules the hearts and minds of the faithful with deception so great, that they cannot or will not break its iron grip upon them. And thanks to the four C’s and the lingering time that it took to finally make everyone through intimidation and manipulation and total mind control, to accept it as something normal. But have they fooled God into accepting it as His truth too?

I think not!

Romans 1: 24-27 Why God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up to vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

 

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 9 Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionists, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

That is where we, the United States of America are at as a society right now. The four C’s of Creeping, Cringing, Crawling, Crud, under the diabolical and subtle hand of Satan the devil has been successful in leading us to the pan of warm water and having us test it out with our toes dangling in it, some have found it so pleasant, warm, relaxing and comfortable, they just went right ahead and jumped right on in. As more and more are getting in the relaxing warm water, it is just human nature for others to follow along. So, it is, we as a society have arrived here on this 28th day of November 2018 with most all of society whom consider themselves to be followers of God, laying in the pan doing the back stroke without a worry in the world. It seems to me to be high time for us folks claiming to be the people of God, to step up and actually be the children of God. The hand writing is on the wall, the dye has been cast. We can wake up and look around ourselves and see the things I have talked about in this piece, coming to fruition like I have described them to happen, and now we are swimming in a pool of degradation, filth and the hog slop of a Satan led so called Christian church of religion gone wrong that have not the foggiest notion what the truth of God is all about.

Never realizing within their Satanist comprised mind and thinking, that we most likely are on the threshold of actually losing of our sovereignty to our enemies. They will not have to take it away from us, God will take it away from us and give it to them. That is, if we believe what His Word tells us. God will only allow a nation or an individual to slip and slide so far away from His Word and way, before He takes decisive action to bring their folly to naught, it will all fall down around our ears with a deafening crash that will be heard all around the world. God tells us that unless those times should be shortened, no flesh will be saved alive. None of us have to be in that number that is going to meet such an ungodly fate as God tells us about, the one that is on its sure and certain way. Read Revelation 18:4 and do what God commands us all to do. To come out of this worlds counterfeit Christian religion. The one that has subtly been carefully put together to lead all of the people of God astray with half-truths, intimidation, manipulation, and outright lies from (Satan) the god of this world being talked about in 2nd Corinthians 4:4.

Mark 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.

Isaiah 6:13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so, the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

Isaiah 65:8,9 Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so, will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all…

God is not going to erase all of mankind off the face of the earth at that time. But, make no mistake about it, He is going to erase two thirds of all mankind off the earth as seen below in Zechariah. Those two thirds of mankind will be resurrected back to life in the Great White Throne Judgment of God. What they all failed to learn, to accept, to believe and to follow in this physical life, they will all be subjected to the fire of God talked about in Hebrews 12:29 Our God is a consuming fire. Where all sin and unrighteousness will forever be burned up and destroyed. Jesus Christ will have reconciled all things back to the Father. Death is the last thing to be destroyed, after that the only thing that exists for all is life. Immortal, spirit life, to have life like Jesus Christ and God the Father have life.

Zechariah 13:8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

Most of you have heard about the rise and fall of the Roman empire and how they at one time ruled much of the world. The Romans, that were steeped into following law and order and the things that bring a nation to power and sustain a nation and its people. God tells us, where there is no vision, the people perish. That is a physical and a spiritual truth that we have lost track of and it has alluded us and lulled us all to sleep. As little by little the Creeping, Cringing, Crawling, Crud has ever so slowly overtaken us and we are being ruled by it. Everything that man has touched and left to itself to find its own way, has failed. The only possible way that mankind will be able to avert a slowly coming collapse that will have us being servants to another nation.

Will be when we get our collective heads out of our own hind-ends, and back upon things that this nation was founded upon. Mankind simply is not capable of properly governing ourselves without the active guidance and direction of God Almighty. Yet as a nation and as a people, we thumb our noses at God, in refusing to accept, believe and following His Word and His way. Many without saying it believe that He is not relevant any more in the modern age of enlightenment. Has anyone stopped to reflect a moment, upon the fact as being the so-called greatest nation on earth, we have not won a war since the Korean War.

It is God that makes and unmakes nations as well as their leaders. It is God that gives the victory to one and the defeat to another as suits His purpose and plan for all of creation. And it shouldn’t take an Einstein to tell us how God feels about the life styles being promoted and lived here on this good earth that He has created and provided all of the abundance for us to enjoy and be thankful and grateful for, instead of the ungrateful wretches that we have all too often become. Let us begin to apply ourselves now before it becomes to late. Ask the God of all heaven and earth to come into your life and guide and direct you in the way that He would have you go. Ask it in the name of Jesus Christ.    

Justice System and Judicial Branch are Implicated in Pedophilia Too …

Satanic pedophiles have infiltrated all aspects of society, including the justice system and judicial branch. There you can find both pedophiles and those who would protect them. The case of Scalia being a pedophile is certainly not the first time a judge or justice, even a high-up one, would be involved in the dark Satanic and pedophilic network that runs the New World Order. In Australia, the Royal Commission set up to investigate the child sex trafficking ring there was headed by James Wood, named by Fiona Barrett as one of the perpetrators of the Australian VIP pedophile ring. These fancy “Royal Commissions” are normally a scam; they are controlled by the perpetrators themselves.

Remember the Warren Commission, headed by then Supreme Court Justice and 33° Freemason Earl Warren, which controlled the official narrative about the JFK assassination and hid the true killers. JFK assassination mastermind Allen Dulles was a member of that commission! Commissions or investigations like these are all about manipulating public perception and keeping organized pedophilia hidden. In A Case of Ritual Abuse and its Meaning for Society, James Shanahan mentions that Joh Bjelke Petersen, a former Premier of Queensland, Australia, once famously said, “You do not hold a Royal Commission unless you already know what the answer will be”.

Hopefully more people will step forward to verify these claims against Scalia. Apparently, Scalia rubbed shoulders with Dick Cheney at Cibolo Creek Ranch owned by John Poindexter. Cheney, you may recall, was named by SRA and mind control victim Cathy O’Brien as one of her abusers. If Scalia was a pedophile, the world needs to know.

The true origins of Christmas

It is the time when professing Christians are supposed to focus on Jesus Christ. ­Everyone instead asks the question, what did you get for Christmas? No one bothers to ask the other person what they had gave to Christ, do they? After all it is according to them His birthday, isn’t it? I would like to submit this piece here below written and researched out about the ungodly idolatry and pagan origins of Christmas, the Yuletide season so called. By David C. Pack

 

BY DAVID C. PACK

Where did Christmas originate? From the Bible or paganism? What is the real origin of Santa Claus—mistletoe—Christmas trees—holly wreaths—and the custom of exchanging gifts? Many are concerned about putting “Christ back into Christmas.” Was He ever there? Here are the stunning answers!

Every year after Thanksgiving, most people's thoughts turn to Christmas

Christmas is thought by most to be a wonderful time, focusing the participants on giving, family togetherness, beautiful music and decorations, feasting on special foods and singing Christmas carols throughout the neighborhood (as my family did every year). All of this is supposedly centered around the worship of Christ. Surely the Bible instructs us to do all this—right? The answers will shock you!

Learn the why behind the headlines

Why do people think that Christmas is wonderful? Most never reflect on why they believe what they believe or do what they do. We live in a world filled with customs, but few ever seek to understand their origin. We generally accept them without question. Most people basically do what everyone else does—because it is easy and natural!

Let's carefully examine the roots of Christmas. Let's look at why people follow the customs associated with it. Why is it kept on December 25th? Did the early New Testament Church keep it? This article is filled with facts from history that, when placed together, paint a complete picture. Let's avoid all assumptions and only accept what can be PROVEN!

Pagan Origin

In 1990, the Solon, Ohio (a Cleveland suburb) school board banned all nativity and other Christmas scenes on any school property because they felt it violated the separation of church and state. They were challenged in court when outraged parents opposed them, feeling that Christmas was being stolen from their children and the community. The board lost the case! The citizenry had contended that Christmas was a worldwide tradition that was not part of, and transcended, religion. It was deemed to be secular—a part of virtually all cultures worldwide.

The court decision affirmed that Christmas has no Christian roots! However, the court's opinion also noted that Bible reading and prayer obviously are associated with Christ-ianity—a remarkable admission! The court concluded that Christmas-keeping and manger scenes could remain because they are not really part of either Christianity or religion—but prayer and Bible reading, which are, must remain excluded from schools!

Nearly all aspects of Christmas observance have their roots in Roman custom and religion. Consider the following admission from a large American newspaper (The Buffalo News, Nov. 22, 1984): “The earliest reference to Christmas being marked on Dec. 25 comes from the second century after Jesus' birth. It is considered likely the first Christmas celebrations were in reaction to the Roman Saturnalia, a harvest festival that marked the winter solstice—the return of the sun—and honored Saturn, the god of sowing. Saturnalia was a rowdy time, much opposed by the more austere leaders among the still-minority Christian sect. Christmas developed, one scholar says, as a means of replacing worship of the sun with worship of the Son. By 529 A.D., after Christianity had become the official state religion of the Roman Empire, Emperor Justinian made Christmas a civic holiday. The celebration of Christmas reached its peak—some would say its worst moments—in the medieval period when it became a time for conspicuous consumption and unequaled revelry.”

Consider these quotes from the Catholic Encyclopedia, 1911 edition, under “Christmas”: “Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the Church…the first evidence of the feast is from Egypt.” Further, “Pagan customs centering around the January calends gravitated to Christmas.” Under “Natal Day,” Origen, an early Catholic writer, admitted, “…In the Scriptures, no one is recorded to have kept a feast or held a great banquet on his birthday. It is only sinners (like Pharaoh and Herod) who make great rejoicings over the day in which they were born into this world” (emphasis mine).

The Encyclopedia Americana, 1956 edition, adds, “Christmas…was not observed in the first centuries of the Christian church, since the Christian usage in general was to celebrate the death of remarkable persons rather than their birth…a feast was established in memory of this event [Christ's birth] in the fourth century. In the fifth century the Western Church ordered the feast to be celebrated forever on the day of the Mithraic rites of the birth of the sun and at the close of the Saturnalia, as no certain knowledge of the day of Christ's birth existed.”

There is no mistaking the origin of the modern Christmas celebration. Many additional sources could be cited and we will return to this later. Let's begin to tie some other facts together.

It was 300 years after Christ before the Roman church kept Christmas, and not until the fifth century that it was mandated to be kept throughout the empire as an official festival honoring “Christ.”

Can Christ Be Honored by Christmas?

The most common justification that one will hear regarding Christmas is that people have replaced old pagan customs and intents by asserting that they are now “focusing on Christ.” I have heard many say that they are “honoring Christ” in their Christmas-keeping. The problem is that God does not say this is acceptable to Him! Actually, He plainly commands against it! Keeping Christmas dishonors Christ! He considers everything about it to be an abomination! We will soon see why.

Christ said, “But in vain they do worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matt. 15:9). Christmas is not a command of God—it is a tradition of men. Christ continued, “Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition” (Mark 7:9). Every year, throughout the world, on December 25th, hundreds of millions do just that!

We will see that God plainly commands, “Follow not the way of the heathen.” But most people do not fear God, and He allows them to make their own decisions. Human beings are free moral agents—free to obey or disobey God! But woe to those who ignore the plain Word of God!

Was Christ Born on December 25th?

Christ was born in the fall of the year. Many have mistakenly believed He was born around the beginning of winter—December 25th! They are wrong! Notice the Adam Clarke Commentary, volume 5, page 370, New York edition: “It was custom among Jews to send out their sheep to the deserts about the Passover [early spring], and bring them home at the commencement of the first rain.” The first rains began in early-to-mid fall. Continuing with this same quote: “During the time they were out, the shepherds watched them night and day. As…the first rain began early in the month of March-esvan, which answers to part of our October and November [begins sometime in October], we find that the sheep were kept out in the open country during the whole summer. And as these shepherds had not yet brought home their flocks, it is a presumptive argument that October had not yet commenced, and that, consequently, our Lord was not born on the 25th of December, when no flocks were out in the fields; nor could He have been born later than September, as the flocks were still in the fields by night. On this very ground, the nativity in December should be given up. The feeding of the flocks by night in the fields is a chronological fact…See the quotations from the Talmudists in Lightfoot.”

Luke 2:8 explains that when Christ was born, “there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.” Note that they were “abiding” in the field. This never happened in December. Both Ezra 10:9-13 and the Song of Solomon 2:11 show that winter was the rainy season and shepherds could not stay on cold, open fields at night.

Numerous encyclopedias plainly state that Christ was not born on December 25th! The Catholic Encyclopedia directly confirms this. In all likelihood, Christ was born in the fall! A lengthy technical explanation would prove this point.

Since we now know that December 25th was nowhere near Christ's actual birthdate, where did the festival associated with this date come from?

Now read this quote under “Christmas”: “In the Roman world, the Saturnalia (December 17) was a time of merrymaking and exchanging of gifts. December 25 was also regarded as the birthdate of the Iranian mystery god Mithra, the Sun of Righteousness. On the Roman New Year (January 1), houses were decorated with greenery and lights, and gifts were given to children and the poor. To these observances were added the German and Celtic Yule rites when the Teutonic tribes penetrated into Gaul, Britain and central Europe. Food and good fellowship, the Yule log and Yule cakes, greenery and fir trees, gifts and greetings all commemorated different aspects of this festive season. Fires and lights, symbols of warmth and lasting life, have always been associated with the winter festival, both pagan and Christian” (Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th ed., vol. II, p. 903).

A final quote about the selection of December 25th as the birthdate of Christ is necessary. Note an article in The Toronto Star, December 1984, by Alan Edmonds, entitled, “We owe a lot to Druids, Dutch”: “The Reformation cast a blight on Christmas. By then, of course, clever ecclesiastical politicians had adopted the Pagan mid-winter festival as the alleged birthdate of Jesus, of Nazareth, and thrown in a few other Pagan goodies to make their takeover more palatable.”

December 25th was not selected because it was the birth of Christ or because it was even near it. It was selected because it coincided with the idolatrous pagan festival Saturnalia—and this celebration must be carefully examined. In any event, we do not know the exact date of Christ's birth. While God certainly could have made it known, He chose to hide it from the world's eyes!

What About Santa Claus?

Parents reason that they owe the whole Christmas myth to their children! Christmas traditions are focused primarily on kids, and they are certainly the center of most of what happens. I know because I kept seventeen Christmases. My older sister and younger brother and I were the recipients of much and the givers of very little on that day—and it all started with the Santa Claus lie.

Some years ago, a priest in New Jersey told his Sunday school class that Santa was a myth. The outrage from parents and his supervisors was swift. He had “killed Santa!” He had “destroyed family tradition!” He had “usurped family authority,” the article continued. He was officially censored by his superiors for being “overzealous and insensitive.”

His crime? He told the truth!

According to Langer's Encyclopedia of World History, (article “Santa”), “Santa” was a common name for Nimrod throughout Asia Minor. This was also the same fire god who came down the chimneys of the ancient pagans and the same fire god to whom infants were burned and eaten in human sacrifice among those who were once God's people.

Today Santa Claus comes from “Saint Nicholas.” Washington Irving, in 1809, is responsible for remaking the original old, stern bishop of this same name into the new “jolly St. Nick” in his Knickerbocker History of New York. (Most of the rest of America's Christmas traditions are even more recent than this.) “Old Nick” has long been recognized as a term for the devil.

In Revelation 2:6 and 15, we read about a “doctrine of the Nicolaitanes,” which Christ twice tells His Church “[He] hates.” Let's analyze the word Nicolaitane. It means “follower of Nicholas.” Nikos means “conqueror, destroyer.” Laos means “people.” Nicolaitanes, then, are people who follow the conqueror or destroyer—Nimrod. If you have believed that following Christmas is an innocent Christian custom, let this truth sink in!

Is It Scriptural to Exchange Gifts?

Merchants regularly report that over 60% of their annual retail sales occur during the Christmas shopping season. This represents a tremendous amount of gift buying. Most today believe that gift-giving comes from the Bible example of the “three wise men” (the Bible gives no number) presenting gifts to Christ. Is this true? Where did exchanging gifts come from, and what does God's Word say about it?

The Bibliotheca Sacra states, “The interchange of presents between friends is a like characteristic of Christmas and the Saturnalia, and must have been adopted by Christians from the pagans, as the admonition of Tertullian plainly shows” (Vol. 12, pp. 153-155).

Like every other aspect of Christmas, the shocking truth is that even this supposed Christian custom does not come from the Bible. It is an irony that people love to believe they are following the custom of the wise men giving to Christ, when actually they are giving almost exclusively to each other! What hypocrisy! Christ is completely forgotten.

The Bible actually teaches that Christians should not keep birthdays. Numerous scriptures make this principle clear. (Read our article “Are Birthday Celebrations Christian?”) However, what if you went to a birthday party that had been prepared for you and everybody gave gifts to each other and you were left out? The idea is ridiculous! If this happened, you would say that people were being selfish and forgetting you. In fact, most people give to others on Christmas merely because they expect to receive gifts themselves!

Let's briefly return to the “wise men” who gave gifts to Christ. The scripture describing this is Matthew 2:1-11: “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is He that is born King of the Jews?…And when they were come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.”

It is commonly supposed that these were birthday presents for “baby Jesus.” But is this what the Bible actually says? Absolutely not! First, it is important to note that they did give the gifts to Jesus. They did not stand in his presence and exchange gifts among themselves or give them to others. The gifts were “presented unto Him.” Also, they arrived well after his “birthday.” This is another reason these could not have been “birthday presents.”

A long-standing, ancient custom of the East was to present gifts when coming before a king. These men understood they were in the presence of the “King of the Jews.” The Bible carries many examples of people sending gifts to kings or presenting them upon arrival into their presence. This custom is common today when ambassadors or others come into the presence of a world leader.

Finally, notice what the Adam Clarke Commentary, volume 5, page 46, states about what really happened on this occasion: “Verse 11. They presented unto him gifts. The people of the east never approach the presence of kings and great personages, without a present in their hands. This custom is often noticed in the Old Testament, and still prevails in the east, and in some of the newly discovered South Seas Islands.” Gifts were customarily presented to kings. What could be plainer?

Origin of the Christmas Tree

No article about Christmas is complete without some explanation of the “Christmas tree.” We have touched on it without directly focusing on it. The modern Christmas tree originated in Germany. But the Germans got it from the Romans, who got it from the Babylonians and the Egyptians.

The following demonstrates what the Babylonians believe about the origin of the Christmas tree: “An old Babylonish fable told of an evergreen tree which sprang out of a dead tree stump. The old stump symbolized the dead Nimrod, the new evergreen tree symbolized that Nimrod had come to life again in Tammuz! Among the Druids the oak was sacred, among the Egyptians it was the palm, and in Rome it was the fir, which was decorated with red berries during the Saturnalia!” (Walsh, Curiosities of Popular Customs, p. 242).

Frederick J. Haskin's Answers to Questions states, “The Christmas tree is from Egypt, and its origin dates from a period long anterior to the Christmas Era.” Did you know this—that the Christmas tree long preceded Christianity?

Most aspects of Christmas are not referred to in the Bible. Of course, the reason is that they are not from God—they are not part of the way He wants people to worship Him. The Christmas tree, however, is directly mentioned in the Bible! Turn to Jeremiah 10:2-5, “Thus says the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen…For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it moves not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.”

This plain description of the modern Christmas tree is clear. God directly refers to it as “the way of the heathen.” Just as directly, He commands His people to “learn not the way of the heathen,” calling these customs “vain.” Verse 23 adds a remarkable and powerful statement: “O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walks to direct his [own] steps.” God must teach people how to live. Man, simply cannot figure out God's ways for himself.

There is no room in Jeremiah 10 to believe, as some have tried to suggest, that because these trees are powerless of themselves, it is not really forbidden to have a Christmas tree. God condemns the putting up of pagan (Christmas) trees with this plain Bible command!

The Source of Holly Wreaths, Yule Logs and Mistletoe

The Encyclopedia Americana states, “The holly, the mistletoe, the Yule log…are relics of pre-Christian time.” In other words, paganism! The Yule log was commonly used in a rite of Teutonic nature worship.

Frederick Haskin further states, “The use of Christmas wreaths is believed by authorities to be traceable to the pagan customs of decorating buildings and places of worship at the feast which took place at the same time as Christmas.”

The Encyclopedia Britannica, under “Celestials,” exposes the origin of the holly wreath: “European pagans brought holly sprays into their homes, offering them to the fairy people of the forests as refuge from the harsh winter weather. During the Saturnalia, the Roman winter festival, branches of holly were exchanged as tokens of friendship. The earliest Roman Christians apparently used holly as a decoration at the Christmas season.”

There are dozens of different types of holly. Virtually all of them come in male and female varieties—such as “Blue Prince and Blue Princess” or “Blue Boy and Blue Girl” or “China Boy and China Girl.” Female holly plants cannot have berries unless a nearby male plant pollinates them. It is easy to see why the holly wreath found its way into pagan rituals as a token of friendship and fertility!

Christmas is incomplete to many unless it involves “kissing under the mistletoe.” This pagan custom was natural on a night that involved much revelry done in the spirit of drunken orgies. Just like today, this “kissing” usually occurred at the beginning of any modern Saturnalia/Christmas celebration. I will never forget having to always kiss my friends' mothers upon entering each of their houses every Christmas. It was the first thing that we did. I hated it—but it was something I “had to do”! Mistletoe was considered to have special powers of healing for those who “reveled” under it.

The Encyclopedia Britannica, under “Santalales,” states, “The European mistletoe is thought to have had special ritual significance in Druidical ceremonies and lives in folklore today, its special status as the Christmas mistletoe having come from Anglo-Saxon times.” Mistletoe is a parasite that lives on oak trees. (Recall that the Druids worshipped in oak tree groves.) The ancient Celtics (associated with the Druids) used to give mistletoe as an herbal remedy to barren animals to make them fertile. It is still referred to as “all healer” in Celtic.

Like mistletoe, holly berries were also thought to be sacred to the sun god. The original “sun log” came to be called the yule log. “Yule” simply means “wheel,” which has long been a pagan representation of the sun. No wonder people today commonly speak of the “sacred yule-tide season.”

What Should You Do?

Finally, let's examine what God told His people they should do and the way they ought to teach their children.

Human beings do not want to obey God (Rom. 8:7). They would rather follow their own “imagination.” They do not understand that God wants their lives to go “well.” He wants happiness, joy and blessings to flow into people's lives. All these are the results of obeying Him.

God inspired Moses to warn parents of the grave responsibility that they have in what and how they teach their children. Notice His instruction in Deuteronomy 6:16-720-2125: “Now these are the commandments…which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land where you go to possess it…And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart: And you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up…And when your son asks you in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God has commanded you? Then you shall say unto your son, we were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand…And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as He has commanded us.”

God took Israel out of Egypt—out of the customs of the world around them and revealed His Law to them. He does not want His people going back to the traditions, customs and ways from which He has called them.

When all of the interconnected traditions, filled with the symbolism of worshipping an ancient pagan, humanly devised god, are taught, this is not worshipping the true Creator.

The prophet Isaiah was inspired to write, “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet, and show My people their transgression” (58:1). I have done this. (end quotes)

Shorter Written Study from unknown source

Christmas is, Custom, Ritual and Tradition all rolled up into ONE Giant Lie to be passed off on sleepy time Christians, living in fear of the truth of God. All of whom have elected to follow after Satan the deceiver in which there is no truth at all. As they one and all reject the truth of God, while expecting Him to be an active force within their lives and lifestyles. (My emphasis)

Sometimes tradition is acceptable and perhaps even pleasing in the sight of Yahweh. But other times it is not acceptable and can even be hated by Him.

When our Savior walked the earth in the first century, He didn't seem to take a liking to tradition. Consider His response to the scribes and Pharisees here in Matthew 15:

(NKJV) Matthew 15:1- Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Yahushua, saying, 
 2 "Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread."

Just as Yahushua was asked about why He wasn't observing their tradition, those who don't participate in the tradition of Christmas observance will often hear the question, "Why do you not celebrate Christmas (transgress the traditions of our elders)?"

First of all, nowhere in the pages of scripture do we find a command to keep the celebration of Christmas. Nowhere in the pages of scripture do we find an example of any disciple keeping Christmas. It was actually never celebrated by believers in Messiah until sometime after 300AD.

If we are willing to take an unbiased biblical at the observance, we will find a tremendously sad reality: The only time a tradition like Christmas is ever mentioned in the pages of scripture is to declare that we should not be practicing it.

Once we realize we shouldn't be practicing it, our answer to this kind of question would be similar to how our Savior responded:

Matt 15:3 - He answered and said to them, "Why do you also transgress the commandment of Elohim because of your tradition?

Our Savior didn't like the traditions of the Scribes and Pharisees because they transgressed Yahweh's clear commandments.

This study will demonstrate that Christmas is actually transgressing the commandment of Yahweh in favor of tradition. But first, please notice that He goes on to say:

Matthew 15:7 - "Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 
`These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with [their] lips, But their heart is far from Me. 
9 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' "

I am not condemning anyone who chooses to observe Christmas. I personally grew up celebrating it and have a number of fond memories spending time with family and the anticipation of gift-giving. But when it comes to seeking out my Savior's will, the most important thing is not how I feel about it. The most important thing is how HE feels about it. After all, it's all about Him... yes? It's not supposed to be about us. It's about HIM.

So, we see here in Matthew 15 that it's possible for a tradition to honor him with the lips, but actually be a vain thing that displeases Him. Just because it appears to give honor to Him doesn't mean that He sees it that way.

Christmas has essentially become a commandment of men because, like the Pharisees expected Messiah to adhere to their practices, it is likewise expected that believers in Messiah observe Christmas. But this tradition was not authored by our Creator. There is no verse in the bible that asks us to celebrate the birth or even the resurrection of Messiah. Thus, to do so is purely an invention of men.

It is important that we take the time to question whether or not our traditions even if few dares to. I find it ironic that many Christians will speak against the Catholic traditions of Lent, Ash Wednesday, etc. but fail to recognize that pagan elements also exist in the celebration of Christmas and Easter. So how did the Christmas observance get its start?

Origin of Christmas

The following is a quote from the 2000 Encyclopædia Britannica, Volume 11 ; page 390.

"During the later periods of Roman history, sun worship gained in importance and ultimately led to what has been called a 'solar monotheism.' Nearly all the gods of the period were possessed of Solar qualities, and both Christ and Mithra acquired the traits of solar deities. The feast of Sol Invictus (open unconquered Sun) on December 25th was celebrated with great joy, and eventually this date was taken over by the Christians as Christmas, the birthday of Christ."

Notice how it says "both Christ and Mithra acquired the traits of solar deities?" Pardon me, but do any alarm bells go off here?

The Christians were apparently trying to get more converts so they tried to make the Messiah more like the idols found in sun worship---all under the guise of making Him more attractive to pagans.

They even brought various elements of the December 25th "feast of the unconquered sun" into their worship by saying that December 25th was actually the Messiah's birthday. This is the origin of Christmas and this is why we have various pagan-rooted traditions accompanying this holiday.

When it comes to things like this, the real question for me is "who converted who?" Do we imitate the world to bring the world to the Messiah? Absolutely not. You don't win the world by imitating the worldyou win the world by imitating Yahushua the Messiah!

It seems to me that true believers should be teaching the unbelievers the true way of Yahweh rather than the unbelievers teaching believers these pagan customs and practices. But Christians of former times not only learned these heathen ways, they also incorporated them into their worship.

(Christians didn’t do away with idolatry and paganism, they have adopted their beliefs. (my emphasis)

When Paul was writing to the Ephesians, a group of believers who were surrounded by idol worship, he said:

Ephesians 5:11 - And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

So, we shouldn't be trying to copy idolatrous feasts. Rather, we should be exposing them for the fraud and lie that they are. One of the last things our Savior would ever want is to "acquire the traits of solar deities" and believers should not be imitating pagans.

So, when was His birthday? The scriptures do not supply us with an exact date of birth.

We know the date of His death is on Passover. Scripture does tell us the time of many other important events in biblical history such as the founding of the temple (first day of the biblical year), the timing of the Exodus from Egypt, the date that the flood began and many other events. But the date of the Messiah's birth? Scripture is silent.

To me this speaks volumes. Even though Yahushua could look into the future and know that there would be billions of people who wanted to celebrate His birthday, He never told us when it was. If He wanted us to celebrate His birthday, He surely would have told us when it was.

His silence is deafening.

I realize that today, Christmas is a very popular holiday. However, as is often the case, what is popular is not always right and what is right is not always popular. We can't follow the masses if the masses are wrong. We should have no fellowship with those things, rather we should reprove them.

Christmas means 'mass for Christ,' but the name of the holiday is much newer than the holiday itself. The customs associated with Christmas, in one form or another, have been celebrated for literally thousands of years. 'Christmas' is just a new name for an old holiday.

So, there is no doubt that the customs that are associated with Christmas, as well as the idea of a deity being born on December 25th are of pagan origin. One need only look to an encyclopedia or even many local newspapers in the 12th month of the year to find this "truth so I don't need to spend much time establishing that. The real issue is whether or not we should walk in these customs.

You may wonder what is so bad about it. You may say, "Oh but what about the children? They would feel left out if I didn't celebrate Christmas." But what should we be teaching our children? Truth or lies? Conformity to the world when the world is wrong or a rejection of worldly things that are rooted in idolatry?

The truth is that we have no evidence Messiah was born on December 25th. Instead, December 25th is the birthday of numerous pagan idols. Why would we want to put the holy Messiah in with them? He is holy, a word which means "set apart." He is not like them at all! And He doesn't want to be associated with them or the customs of those who worship them.

In fact, the pagan customs associated with Christmas are clearly condemned in the scriptures. Here is one of them:

Jeremiah 10:1-4 - Hear the word which Yahweh speaks to you, O house of Israel. 
Thus says Yahweh: "Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, For the Gentiles are dismayed at them. 
3
 For the customs of the peoples are futile; For one cuts a tree from the forest, The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. 
4 They decorate it with silver and gold; They fasten it with nails and hammers so that it will not topple.

First of all, Yahweh is telling us in this verse "Do not learn the way of the Gentiles" Don't even learn it, let alone practice it and incorporate it into the worship of Yahweh! After all, shouldn't the roots of our worship be in the scriptures, rather than paganism?

Secondly, it says that the Gentiles were dismayed at the signs of heaven. History tells us that when the sun began to go further away from the earth and the days grew shorter in the winter, the sun worshipping Gentiles were "dismayed", and feared that the sun would not return. So, they held certain festivals just after the time of the Winter Solstice when it did begin to return. This return of the sun is why December 25th is the birthday of so many solar deities/gods.

One of the customs the pagans had was to decorate a tree that they had cut down and fasten it so that would not topple. The evergreen tree seemed to not be bothered by the winter so it would have been a logical choice. We see this same copycat custom existing even today--called the Christmas tree.

Yahweh tells us not to learn the way of the heathen. And here He even goes so far as describe a custom that is a way of the heathen. Since He tells us that this is a heathen custom and He clearly condemned the practice of it, shouldn't we avoid it? How can we delight in something that He despises? The placing of gifts under the tree is much like the heathen who offered various gifts to their idols, and then kneeling before the tree to receive them back again.

Think about it though---if this had never been done before, have you ever wondered why in the world someone would do something as strange as cut down a tree and put it in their house and then decorate it with all different types of ornaments? Not only is it odd, it is a custom that is clearly condemned in the scriptures. We don't need a prophet to come and tell us today that this custom is wrong. Jeremiah said so a long time ago! 

This is one of many other such customs, including the gift giving. Why on earth would we give each other gifts when it's supposed to be the Messiah's birthday? It isn't our birthday, is it?

All of this has led to ridiculous commercialism, with various "Black Friday" sales in corporate America. But "Black Friday" sales are only a smokescreen. It may be the day when corporate America goes in the black, but most other Americans end up going in the red. 

Because of this, credit card companies will get even richer and the poor man even poorer. All this to buy gifts for people on a birthday that is neither theirs or the Messiah's.

Santa Claus

All over the world, Santa Claus is God to the children of the world (move the n to the end of Santa). Others say 'Father Christmas'.

Parents purposely and deliberately lie to their children and tell them that they should fear Santa Claus because "he knows if you've been bad or good". These same parents also lie to their children about the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy. Then they wonder why their children become liars and don't believe the Messiah is real later on in life. 

This is clearly a total abomination to Yahweh. You don't have to look very far in the word of Yahweh to find out how much he loathes idolatry and lies. Yahweh is the only true Mighty One!

Our children look to us and believe every word we say. Don't they deserve the "truth? How abominable it is for a believer to teach their children to fear Santa Claus, and in so doing, creep an idol into the conscience of a child! 

Lies, lies everything is lies

The very foundation of the Christmas holiday is a lie. The Messiah was not born December 25th. He did not ask us to celebrate his birthday. He did not say to set up a tree in our house and decorate it and our houses with anything. Santa Claus does not exist. He doesn't have reindeer that fly and he isn't going to come down anyone's chimney on December 25th and leave any gifts. Everything is a lie. Is Yahweh the originator of this holiday? Or is it the father of lies? Yahushua condemned the leaders of that generation for teaching lies:

John 8:44 - "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the "truth, because there is no "truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

It's high time that we forsake these lies and abide in the " "truth!" Let's forsake this foolish practice of yoking the Messiah (who said "I am the TRUTH") together with lies, for He has nothing to do with lies.

Revelation 22:14 - Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 
15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

If we want to practice a lie, we need only celebrate Christmas and we will be doing just that. But if we want to abide in the "truth," we will avoid all lies.

The book of Revelation also predicts a future time when those who hate Yahweh rejoice at the death of His two witnesses, for they will make merry and have a gift exchange:

Revelation 11:91010 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

Sound familiar? I don't know for sure, but it sounds a lot like one day the two witnesses will die and the whole world will rejoice that they can keep Christmas again. I think it's time we make sure we are on the side of "truth and righteousness. 

Mixed worship forbidden in scripture

Not only is it wrong to practice these lying traditions, it is also a sin to take these traditions of pagans and try apply them to the worship of Yahweh. Proof of this is in how Yahweh dealt with the children of Israel when they were about to enter into the promised land:

Deut 12:29 - "When Yahweh your Mighty One cuts off from before you the nations which you go to dispossess, and you displace them and dwell in their land, 
30 "take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, `How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.'

Notice that it doesn't say, "Let us serve their elohim (gods)" but "HOW did these nations serve their elohim/gods"

31 "You shall not worship Yahweh your Mighty One in that way; for every abomination to Yahweh which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods. 32 "Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it.

"You shall not worship Yahweh your Mighty One in that way." Do not worship Yahweh in that way, the way of the heathen! Don't take heathen customs and try to honor Him with it. He is not honored by them. Do not add to His commandments and do not take away from His commandments.

Both Christmas and Easter take pagan festivals and traditions and apply them to the worship of Yahweh. This practice is clearly condemned here.

Think about it though: Would it be right to take a Satanic holiday that Satanists have invented and then incorporate that holiday along with its customs into the worship of Yahweh? Surely not. We need to realize that all paganism is Satanism. Satan is the one behind all pagan worship. And whatever god the idolaters worship, they are actually worshipping Satan. 

1 Corinthians 10:20 - Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to Elohim, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons.

Now consider this next verse:

1Corinthians 10:21 - You cannot drink the cup of Yahweh and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of Yahweh's table and of the table of demons.

We cannot mix the profane with the holy, and we cannot mix lies with truth, and we cannot mix the table of Yahweh with the table of demons. We must choose one, or the other.

Which table will you choose? (end of this writing)

The Truth about Christmas…. Flee from Idolatry by R. F. Becker

What Is Christmas? 

These three verses from God's Word should be intensely startling to anyone who is in the habit of celebrating Christmas. They ought to search out the very depths of the conscience and bring a conviction and condemnation to every Christian who has been active in any way, in the festivals of Yuletide.

From these words of the Spirit, we should have no trouble understanding that whatever is very popular in the world is not of God. They place the unerring finality of Omnipotence on the decree, "That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." They also present to our innermost being the chilling fact that people are not always at heart what they appear to be. And again, here we find a lesson as positive as it is appalling, that the saints of Christ are often, even if unwittingly, led through man's traditions into idolatry, which thing God hates.

We all know holiday seasons are very popular. Any time of festival seems to have great sentimental appeal to the hearts of most people. Add to this emotional expectation, the complex of a conscience which compels a vague respect of the day when Christ supposedly was born and we have--the Christmas spirit. No date on the calendar is welcomed more. Old and young--rich and poor--pious and vulgar, saint and sinner, with boundless frenzy, race with the coming of Christmas day like the waters of a flooded river, submerging everything before it. Christmas is the day when the driving power of this festival love reaches its zenith. No other day can equal it for fleshly revelry, and debauchery combined with a heathen misrepresentation of Christ which, as a fanatical religious orgy from every quarter swirl to a literal vortex of confusion and jamboree on December 25th.

No--Christmas is NOT of God. It is abomination to Him. It is NOT honoring to Jesus Christ. It only calls forth from multitudes of unthinking people a natural sentimentality and a false worship of Him. The observances of Christmas are in no way inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Christmas spirit is only terrible mockery to Him.

Christmas time is not a season of revival and upbuilding in the Church of God. Instead it is a pagan spell of evil, which spreads spiritual pollution as it rages among churches and believers for the time appointed. Thousands of evangelical believers who would be horrified and deeply depressed to find a professor smoking or drinking or dancing, calmly and deliberately indulge in the idolatries of the heathen at Christmas time. And those who know and love the Truth are counted to be narrow minded and sacrilegious if a protest is raised. So, such honest souls are forced to stand aside and witness annually this glittering cloud of pagan observances descend with a smothering and paralyzing pall on all people. And as we watch parents, who loudly proclaim the necessity of truthfulness in children, who advocate the need of so many social reformations and who bemoan the juvenile delinquency which prevails, deliberately teach their unsuspecting little ones the monstrous Santa Claus lie, we can only cry with the Apostle John "I wondered with great wonder" (Rev. 17:6 R.V.).

"A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land. The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" (Jer. 5:30, 31).

The Origin of Christmas 

The celebration of Christmas is a mixture of pagan Babylon's "mystery" idolatry in its purest form, imported through Pergamos (Rev. 2:13) into Rome, and there incorporated into her pagan religious ritual, and from thence introduced into the world by the Roman Catholic Church as a commemoration of Christ's birth. A wealth of proof can easily be produced today to put this fact beyond question.

It is freely admitted by all learned and honest writers of old, that the date of Christ's birth cannot be known. How then did it come to pass that the Roman Catholic Church fixed December 25th as the day He was born?

First, we must remember that Satan's chief object has always been to claim the honor and worship due to the most High God. For it is written in Isaiah:

"How art thou cut down to the ground. who dist lay low the nations. For thou hast said in thine heart. I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the uttermost parts of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High" (Isa. 14:12, 13, 14).

In keeping with these words of Isaiah long centuries before the time of Christ, Satan in his bid for the worship due to God, instituted a great pagan feast which was celebrated at that exact time of the year in the Chaldean city of Babylon. This heathen celebration was in honor of the birth of Tammuz or Bel or Bacchus who was the son of Semeramis, or Cybele or Rhea, the Chaldeans queen of heaven.

Now in Babylon where the sun was worshiped, it was not worshiped as merely a light giving divinity, but as the Incarnate God. And one essential in this Chaldean worship was, that Baal was that same God. So, when Tammuz was worshiped as God incarnate the implication was that he was an incarnation of the sun, or Baal.

When Belshazzar was slain (Dan. 5:30) and the Chaldeans defeated by Darius the Mede, those with authority and power to continue Babylon's idolatrous "mystery" worship, fled to the city of Pergamos, where afterward a Christian Church was founded (Rev. 2:13). There for many centuries Satan himself brought about the worship of Aesculapius, the child of the "incarnate sun." This worship was celebrated in frantic excesses of evil as Babylon's "mystery" idolatries were perpetuated in their exile. Then in the course of time, at the death of Attalus III when Phyrgia was given to the Roman Empire in 133 B.C., the worship of pagan Babylon was removed from Pergamos and its wicked course renewed in the city of Rome on the Tiber.

Now nearly every recorded form of pagan worship which has descended from the Babylonian "mysteries" focuses the attention of its deluded worshipers on a mother god and the birth of her child. In Egypt the mother and child were Isis and Osiris. In India they were Isi and Iswara. In Asia the mother was Cybele and the son Deoius. In Greece we find Ceres and her son Plutus, even in Tibet and China the mother was Shing Moo, and her son was devoutly worshipped with her. Lastly, we have many records of the mother Fortuna and her son Jupiter in pagan Rome. In the worship of all these false gods there has been more or less departure from the original Babylonish form. Only in the Roman Catholic Church can we find today the pure idolatry of the ancient Chaldean "mysteries." From that source has emanated the greatest "mystery" idolatry of all ages. For Rome has given to the world this mother and child worship of wicked Babylon of old, concealed beneath the Satanic disguise of a commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

How did this come to pass? In the third century when the Apostolic Church was in its infancy, grievous wolves entered among the flock of God speaking perverse and evil doctrines. Slowly and cautiously at first (Acts 20:29), they began to bring Rome's pagan worship among the believers Constantine's false conversion and his edict making Christianity the state religion of the Roman Empire, rapidly developed the imported paganism in the worship of the fast decaying Church of Rome.

Now Rome's way of converting the other pagans to her style of worship has always been to absorb them gradually, along with their idolatrous observances. So, about the 4th century the Roman Church brought the worship of Simeramis the Babylonish queen of heaven and her son Tammuz into her ritual, disguised as the worship of Mary and her son Jesus. Then followed the December 25th commemoration of the birth of Christ, and the evil institution of the "mass" for Christ, and behold! --the iniquity of Christmas was launched forth! Thus, the pagans in the now apostate Church could worship the queen of heaven and observe the birth of her son Tammuz while the untaught unsuspecting believers thought they were honoring Christ in the same ritual, Behold the trail of Satan's Christmas festive ritual of counterfeit! From Babylon on the Euphrates, to Pergamos once the capital of Asia, to Rome upon the Tiber and thence into the apostate Church there, finally to emerge through the Roman Catholic Church a flood of lying pagan wonders, covering the earth!

Faithful men of God who knew and loved the Scriptures of truth fought against the mingling of paganism with the name of Christ. They were valiant in opposing the entry of Christmas and its festivals among the believers. But in spite of their efforts, the lukewarm and rapidly decaying church, with the exception of a few faithful Christians, was overcome and finally forced to submit to the observance of the mother and child worship from Babylon. Sad and solemn has been the spiritual and moral wreckage wrought by this Romish evil down through the history of men. And in spite of the plain truths of the Word of God, revealing His holy hatred of idolatry, nearly all of the Protestant Churches and assemblies of Christian believers have followed Rome in her Satanic observance and unholy celebrations of Christ-mass.

Now since the Roman Catholic Church is truly the "Mystery, Babylon the Great" of Rev. 17, and the virgin in her sanctuaries is the real and actual Chaldean queen of heaven, and her blasphemous representation of the birth of Christ is, in fearful reality, a form of devil worship, how we should shrink from having any part in her heaven defying wickedness. For though some may consider the sin of idolatry a light thing, our God does not, no indeed, for the Almighty has attached the greatest of all threatening to the commandment forbidding false worship.

"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God. visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me" (Ex. 20:4, 5).

And shall we, who have been saved by the great grace of God through the atoning blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, and who enjoy the liberties of a government founded by our Puritan fathers who themselves fled from Roman Catholic persecution shall we join hands with that same false and bloody Rome which is daily adding to the fearful list of over 50 million martyrs of Jesus? Shall we embrace and love and celebrate with Babylon the Great, her festivals of iniquity, and shall we do so any longer with our eyes wide open. knowing that her Christ-mass is, after all, just Satan's pagan mockery of the birth of our only Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ? And if, alas, too late, we awake suddenly to find the relentless judgments of God bearing mightily down upon our nation and people, can we not discern His own hand in fulfilling His Word for our national sin of following Rome into her glittering sanctuary of Christmas and Easter evils?

Origin of Christmas Customs 

The following quotations are from standards of authority on the origin of Christmas customs and observances.

1. In Alexander Hislops famous book "The Two Babylon’s" the following quotation concerning the birth of Christ is on page 91 . . .

"There is not a word in the Scriptures about the precise day of His birth, or the time of the year He was born."

2. In Webster's Student Dictionary for Upper School Levels, page 145 (a Catholic dictionary used in our schools today) we read . . .

"Christmas. -- Christ + mass. A church festival, December 25. Christmas day commemorating the birth of Christ."

3. In the Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia, 1903, Vol. 2, page 987 -- we read . . .

"Christmas, -- Christmas properly begins with the evening of December 24 . . . and continues until Epiphany, January 6, the whole period called Christmastide. In the Roman, Greek, Episcopal and Lutheran Churches Christmas is observed as a religious festival with special services. Its celebration was formerly forbidden by the Puritans."

4. In the Encyclopedia Britannica, 9th Edition, Vol. 5; page 611 -- we read . . .

"Christmas Day, -- There is however difficulty in accepting this (December 25th) as the date of the Nativity, December being the height of the rainy season when neither flocks nor shepherds could have been at night in the fields of Bethlehem. By the fifth century, however, whether from influence of some tradition or from the desire to supplant heathen festivals of the period of the year such as Saturnalia, the 25th of December had been generally agreed upon.

5. The Encyclopedia Americana, 1942 Edition, Vol. 6, page 623 reads thus . . .

"Christmas. -- It was according to many authorities not celebrated in the first centuries of the Christian church as the Christian usage in general was to celebrate the death of remarkable persons rather than their birth. A feast was established in memory of the birth of the Saviour in the fourth century. In the fifth century the western church (Roman Catholic) ordered it to be celebrated forever on the day of the old Roman feast of the birth of Sol."

6. In the new Americanized Encyclopedia Britannica, 1900, Vol. IX, page 5236, we read . . .

"Saturn. -- An ancient Italian god . . . Saturnalias, this is the great 'Festival of Saturn,' celebrated on the 19th, but after Caesar's reform of the calendar, the 17th of December. Augustus decreed that the 17th and the 18th should be sacred to Saturn and the 19th and 20th to Opalia the festivals of Ops. Caligula added a fifth day, 'The Day of Youth,' December 25th lasting seven days. The time was one of general joy and mirth. The woolen fetters were taken from the feet of Saturn and each man offered a pig. During the festival schools were closed . . .

"Gambling and dice at other times illegal was now practiced. All classes exchanged gifts, the commonest being tapers and clay dolls. These dolls were especially given to children. Varro thought that these dolls represented original sacrifice of human beings to the Infernal God."

7. The new Americanized Encyclopedia Britannica, Edition of 1899, Vol. XI, page 404, has this . . .

"Befferna. -- A corruption of the word 'epiphania' (Epiphany) is the name of an old female character in Italian folklore, who was so busily engaged in housecleaning, when three wise men of the east passed by on their way to offer their treasurers to the Infant Saviour, that she excused herself for not going out to see them thinking she would have the opportunity of doing so when they returned. Not knowing that they went home by another road she has been ever since watching for them. She, like the Dutch Santa Claus, is supposed to take great interest in children, where in Italy a stocking of each is hung up before the fire. Soon the cry "Ecco le Beffena" is raised when the children jump up and seize their stockings, each of which contains a present bearing value in proportion to the conduct of the child during the year. One whose behavior has been particularly bad finds his stocking filled with ashes in token of Beffena's displeasure.

The custom of carrying an effigy called the Beffena on the 'Twelfth Night' in a procession through the streets is probably a relic of one of the 'Mysteries of the middle ages.'"

8. The new International Encyclopedia, 2nd Edition, Vol. 3, page 27, tell us . . .

"Epiphany. -- A festival held on the 6th of January by the Roman Catholic, Eastern and Angelican Churches in commemoration of the manifestations of Christ. Three different events are included in this celebration. As early as the third century at least, it was observed as the commemoration of the baptism of Christ . . . Later in the east it was taken to commemorate the manifestation of divine power in Christ's first miracle at Cana in Galilee . . . . In the fourth century the birth of Christ was also connected with It by some writers. Many special observances have been connected with the day which under the name 'Twelfth Day, Twelfth Night,' was a time of special merry making in England and closed the Christmas festivities."

9. In the "History of the Christian Church" by Fisher on page 65, it is recorded . . .

 "About the end of this period (3rd century) two new festivals came in. One was Epiphany originating in the East -- the other was Christmas, a festival of Roman origin taking the place of the heathen festival in honor of the sun or of the deity bearing that name, which was celebrated at the winter solstice or on the 25th of December the time erroneously assigned for the solstice in the Julian Calendar."

10. In McAbes History of the Popes, Vol. I, page 18, we find the following information given by Bishop Eusebius in his "Ecciesiasticial History" . . .

"There was at the time (fourth century) an acute controversy about the date on which Easter ought to be celebrated. We must remember that Easter was then the greatest, if not the only ecclesiastical festival; for December 25th was the supreme festival of the pagan and Mithraic calendars and was an abomination to Christians."

Practical Considerations 

1. The name Christmas. This very name is an abomination to our Holy God. The reason for this is that this word Christmas is an unholy and pagan combination of the two words "Christ" and "Mass." Christ died once for our sins (Heb. 9:26). By that ONE offering He has perfected forever every believer (Heb. 10:14).

But behold the terrible mystery of iniquity! For in the Roman Catholic mass, Satan himself has introduced unto the ends of the earth, the crowning blasphemy of Anti-Christ. It is the teaching that the "mass" is not a mere representation of the sacrifice of Christ, but that it is a continuation of the same offering, as the priest commands our Lord Jesus to come down from glory and become a piece of bread. And besides all this, the Roman priest teaches that this same "mass" adds to and improves upon the atonement of our Saviour which He made at Calvary. Thus, in the blasphemy of the "mass" can we not hear Satan say "I will ascend above the heights of the clouds: I will be like the most High" (Isa. 14:14)?

Christ is the divine title of our wonderful Lord and Saviour. "MA" is just the shortening of the blasphemous "mass" of Rome. Christ is the head of the true and living Church which He bought with His own blood. The Roman Catholic Church under the headship of the Pope is verily the synagogue of Satan, the false church. She is spoken of in God's Word as "The Mother of Harlots and abomination of the earth" (Rev. 17:5). Nothing in the realm of the natural will stir one to anger so suddenly as to learn of someone having connected the name of his wife, sister or mother with the name of a well-known woman of ill fame. Christian, how then can you, with serene composure, and interested cooperation, join hands with Rome as she brazenly and wickedly blends the "mass" of the harlot church with the name of Christ the risen Head of the True Church of God?

2. The Christmas Tree. The production and sale of evergreen trees in the U.S.A. has developed, thanks to Rome, into a vast enterprise. So, while lumber is becoming scarcer and prices soar, millions of young trees are annually sacrificed to satisfy America's Christmas god, Tammuz. During the weeks of Christmas festivities, one is met everywhere with these dead evergreen trees arrayed in their glitter and tinsel, reminding us of the lifeless pagan gods of old. But behold! as the fervor of festivity dies down, out goes the stripped and bedraggled remains of the Christmas god into the junk pile or garbage barrel or to be kicked around the street! Yet thousands of untaught people will gladly go hungry and willingly deprive their families of necessary things in order to buy and decorate this same Christmas tree.

The first decorating of an evergreen tree was done by pagans in honor of their god Adonis, who after being slain was brought to life by the serpent Aesculapius. The representation of this slain god was a dead stump of a tree. Around this stump coiled the snake Aesculapius symbol of life restoring. And lo -- from the roots of the dead tree comes forth another and different tree -- an evergreen tree symbolic to pagans of a god who cannot die! In Egypt this god was worshiped in a palm tree as Baal-Tamar. The fir tree was worshiped in Rome as the same new born god as Baal-Berith, who was restored to life by the same serpent, and a feast was held in honor of him on December 25th called the "Birthday of the unconquered Sun."

Now in Babylon's "Mystery" system of idol worship the sun was called "Baal," the one and only god. So, when Tammuz the son of the queen of heaven was worshiped as God he was also reverenced by the name of Baal.

Thus, we can see how, in the annual custom of erecting and decorating evergreen trees, the Roman Catholic Church has brought down through the ages to us, the paganism of Baal or the worship of the sun, mingled with the worship of Aesculapius the serpent. Whether erected in public or private, a tinseled and spangled evergreen tree is just a glaring symbol of the worship of this false god. So, in keeping with the policy of Rome for centuries, while she keeps millions vainly supposing they do honor to Jesus Christ with a Christmas tree, they are actually even if unwittingly commemorating a pagan festival in honor of Baal, which thing our God hates (I Kings 18; Judges 8:33).

"For the customs of the peoples are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest. the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it moves not. They are up-right as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne. because they cannot go" (Jer. 10:3, 4, 5).

3. The date of the birth of Christ. There is not one Scripture in the Word of God which indicates that December 25th is the anniversary of the day on which Christ was born. Neither do we find in that Word anything to prove what time of the year He was born. There is not a verse in the Bible in which can be found the word "Christmas." No one knows the date of the birth of Jesus. Those archeologists and historians who can be depended upon and whose honesty never was doubted, and who are unbiased in their conclusions all agree that the birth of Jesus could not possibly have been in December. There is no reason to connect His birth with December 25th, except for the purpose of using His name to hide the commemoration of a pagan festival as the Church of Rome has so successfully done.

God in His wisdom has chosen to hide the time of His Beloved Son's incarnation. The Bible is the inspired Word of the same Holy God who inhabits Eternity. His dear Son is the central figure in that Word from Genesis to Revelation. He has revealed to us many wondrous things about His Son Jesus Christ. But one thing He has completely hidden from man. It is the precise date of His birth.

Nowhere in the Word of God are we told to remember the birth of Jesus Christ. Christians are commanded to remember His death, both by the Lord Himself in Luke 22:18, 19 and by the Apostle Paul in I Cor. 11:23 to 26. Surely the heart of man must be far from right with God when it can enjoy itself greatly in doing exactly the opposite of His command. Yet many who pass before the world as Christians gladly join the hilarious ungodly in celebrating the pagan festival of Christmas. Another thing I have noticed, those who make the most of Christmas day are those who care the least about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the day on which Christ told us to remember His death, the first day of the week -- the Lord's Day. People who very willingly desecrate the Lord's Day with all manner of pleasure seeking, all sorts of open business places, every kind of secular work, will forfeit all these with great zeal to attend some Christmas service or program in a Church or some other place. Then back they go to their ungodly polluting of the Lord's Day until the next Christmas, when with a conscience aroused by festival emotion they rush again to the altars of the Roman goddess from Babylon.

But who that has been taught by God's Spirit can go in for these pagan celebrations? Christian, can you take part in the idolatries of Babylon? How can you who have been bought with His own blood, offer false worship to a pagan god introduced among us by Satan's Anti-Christ? Can you like Judas, betray Christ by joining hands with them who hate Him and blaspheme His atonement, yet falsely pretend to honor His birth in a festival of sin? Can you, too, enjoy the Romish pageantry in your church and help crucify Jesus afresh by putting Him to an open shame in the idolatrous mockery of Christmas?

"If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him" (I John 2:15).

"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins and that ye receive not of her plagues" (Rev. 18:4).

4. The giving of gifts. In Bible accounts where celebrating and gift giving were done at someone's birthday party, sin and evil prevailed and murder followed. In Genesis, on Pharaoh's birthday, the chief baker was hanged and beheaded. During Herod's birthday celebration John, the Baptist was beheaded for preaching against sin. In Rev. 11 we read how wicked people celebrated the slaying of God's two faithful witnesses by making merry and sending gifts to one another. The Holy Spirit by the mouth of Paul once said, "Ye observe days. and months, and times. and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labor in vain" (Gal. 4:10,11).

I believe that gifts can be great blessings. But a gift is of no value whatever unless it is given in love. Today the common custom seems to be to give a gift at Christmas as a part of a bargain to receive one. Those who give only at a time of a celebration of idolatry certainly are only doing so to the abhorrence of the Almighty. How much more then are they mocking God and making themselves abominable to Him, who send gifts to one another at such a time in a pretense of honoring the birth of His Son? And what account shall those Christians give to our God in the day of judgment, who have annually spent hundreds and even thousands of dollars upon Christmas presents out of their abundance and yet have given little or nothing to support gospel work in our land or in the needy mission fields?

The godly wise men from the East gave their gifts to the child Jesus Himself -- not to one another or to their friends. They gave to Him from hearts moved by the Holy Spirit. Their gifts were a part of their worship of the new-found Messiah. Neither were their gifts common trinkets but presents of great value showing their heart's true love for their Lord. They did not bring to the Christ child presents that they might receive from Him something in return. O how far removed from those first gifts to the child Jesus is the modern cheap knick-knack giving of the fickle throng of Christmas revelers who annually submit themselves to all the festive responsibilities of gift purchasing, which is only a burden grievous to be borne!

5. The world and Christmas. Here is one thing which, if it were the only thing, would prove to me that Christmas celebrating is not of God. It is this; the world which hates Christ and His blood atonement for sin, respond as one man at that time to revel and feast and celebrate. If in reality December 25th was a date set by God to remember the birth of Jesus, the world would not have anything to do with it There would be absolutely no response by the rank and file of mankind. Witness how the world does not regard the Lord's Day which is of God. But the world DOES regard and love Christmas, therefore it is not of God. "For the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God" (I Cor. 2:14). Then how can an obedient child of God, or a church or a gathering of Christians, follow Papal Rome and the drugged and reeling world in their abominable idolatry and sin of Christ-mass festivities?

Those who despise the Gospel of God's grace will go to any length to celebrate a false tradition about His Son's birth. Those who hate the doctrine of forgiveness through the blood of Jesus alone, are filled with great zeal to promote programs, to play Santa Claus, to adorn their dwellings with wreaths and trees and say "Merry Christmas" to everyone they meet. Proud sinners, self-righteous sinners, immoral sinners with a character black as midnight, morally virtuous sinners with hard impenitent hearts, refined and well educated sinners seeming to know everything but Christ as Savior, religious sinners with a lofty heady profession -- all, all with one accord join hands in the gay hilarity of Christmas following the old Mother Harlot, ignorantly imagining they are doing honor to a Savior they neither love nor know nor care to know.

During Christmastide men and women become foully drunk on "Christmas present" liquor and perpetuate every kind of social vice, and criminal debauchery. In wild "Christmas parties" young men and women willingly sell their bodies to evil and their souls to Hell around the be-ribboned and wreathed "Christmas gifts" of champagne, brandy, wine and beer. And thousands of others who would not get drunk commit the abominable sin of gluttony like some gorging carnivorous animal. And in these the name of Christ is used in vile cursing, vulgarity and blasphemy by men and women, boys and girls who lie deliberately about "St. Nick" and "Santa Claus" and love a "Merry Christmas." Dear Christian, can you help to betray Christ with these pagans, by going with them in their religious riots? Can you sell Christ to the ungodly world for a pagan Christmas like Judas did for his 30 pieces of silver?

6. Christmas Programs and Literature. Please read Matthew's Gospel, Chapter 2, then Luke, Chapter 2. By doing so with care any thoughtful reader can see at once that Christmas songs, books, cards and programs are not scriptural. For in most of these we find in one way or another, misrepresentations about the shepherds, the wise men, the star, the child, the stable, etc.

[The Christmas time manger scene always includes Mary, Joseph, a baby Jesus, three wise men and shepherds. This tradition clearly contradicts the Bible record.] Let us begin to solve this problem by stating that nowhere in God's Word are we informed how many wise men there were. [Secondly, the scriptures do not say that the wise men saw Jesus in the manger. They saw him in a HOUSE with Mary His mother (Matthew 2:11)--no mention of Joseph or the shepherds. Even if this house were the inn, this could not have occurred when Jesus was first born because Jesus was not born in the inn, there was no room (Luke 2:7).]

It was not the wise men but the shepherds who came to visit the babe Jesus in His manger cradle in Bethlehem. They followed no star either as they did not even see one. They were informed of the birth of their Messiah by the angel of the Lord (Luke 2:10). Our country teems with covetous men who have made the Christmas season a profitable one indeed for themselves. And through their misrepresentations of the Bible the land abounds at that same season with all sorts of literature, cards, books and programs of celebrations, which utterly confuse the facts written in God's Word about the birth of Jesus. Shepherds and wise men, angels and stars, stable and inn, manger and house are misrepresented. The visit of the shepherds and the visit of the wise men are confused, so that the whole story of the birth of Christ becomes a distorted combination of truth and error.

Long ago King David said to a carnal generation like ours, "Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing?"(Psalm 2:1).

7. God's Judgment. One more point we dare not overlook concerning Christmas. The very source of Christmas equipment condemns the tradition. Until World War II nearly all Christmas goods were stamped "Made in Germany" or "Made in Japan." Thus, these very goods, used by England and the United States to pollute the worship of God and make whole nations to sin, came from the very countries God used in bringing His judgment of war upon us. How did such poor nations finance so great a war? By selling us the fruit of their cheap labor among which Christmas goods played a major role. Ought we to regard this as a mere coincidence? Ought we not rather to see the threatening of God in it? NO COUNTRY IN ALL HISTORY HAS TURNED TO IDOLS AND THEN PROSPERED FOR LONG!

The national fear and unrest, the ominous rumblings in the various world councils the low standard of morality, the universality of open sin, along with the wickedness of idolatry and unbelief, all point to one great event we may soon see come to pass, the fall of this nation. FOR IF THE SIN OF ROMAN CATHOLIC PAGAN IDOLATRY IS NOT NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED AND CONFESSED AND FORSAKEN, WE CAN ONLY LOOK FOR NATIONAL DOOM. If it is increased and developed and our nation goes on with her open idolatry, her legalized gambling, her mountainous liquor corruption, her disregard for the Truths of the Bible, her desecration of the Lord's Day and the maintenance of pagan festivals, all of which are backed by the Roman Catholic Church, we may be sure of one thing. The Lord's anger will not be "turned away. but "His hand" will be "stretched out still" (Isa. 9:17).

"Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people" (Prov. 14: 34)

"Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil" (Ex. 23:2).

8. Perhaps some well-meaning but untaught Christian will say, "We only keep Christmas to give the children a good time."

Let me give you some questions to consider.

1. If you are a Christian how can you teach your little ones to delight in and love a Christmas tree which actually is a pagan symbol of sun and serpent worship?

2. How can you before the all-seeing eye of God tell your children the lie about Santa Claus and his reindeer? You should read Rev. 21:27. Do you think that the God who holds our destiny in His hand will preserve the freedoms of our future generations if we make them a nation of liars?

3. How can you have the brazen boldness to tell your children you are a Christian, and then connect pagan idolatry to the story of the birth of Christ?

4. How can you help a bewhiskered clown dressed like a dunce, who is hired by some commercial establishment to lie to children all day long, betray your own trusting child into a maze of falsehood to save your face before Christmas idolaters?

5. How can you expect your children to have any confidence in whatever you teach them, when they find you have lied deliberately to them for years about Christmas and Santa Claus -- and during those years you punish THEM for telling untruths?

6. Does not your heart smite you as you think of them growing up in servitude to the pagan observances and celebrations of Rome, instead of the real truth of the gospel of Christ?

7. How can you have the shameless boldness before God, to teach your children paganism and the Word of God at the same time? Do you expect that God will spare a people, whose chief delight is to make a mock of the birth of His Son?

8. Does not your conscience accuse you as you combine the story of our adorable Saviour with the Roman heathen idol, the Christmas tree of Baal-Berith?

9. How can you expect your children to believe you, that they must worship Christ alone, if they see you indulge in an annual festival which had its beginning among the devil worshipers of ancient Chaldea?

10. How can you expect your child to believe your witnessing to him about Christ when he finds out you have been lying to him about Santa Claus and his reindeer, etc.?

11. Do you believe that a festive season that not only came to us through Rome from Babylon, but in itself is a system of perpetual lying to little children, is of God?

12. Can you teach your children to honor the Lord and the Lord's Day and then help them engage in honoring a heathen god, Baal-Berith, a Christmas tree and all the God-dishonoring observances connected with it?

13. How can you tell your children with a clear conscience that you are a child of God yourself when they annually watch you celebrate a Romish Christmas, and lie to them like a child of the devil?

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them" (Matt. 7:20).

"Train up a young child in the way he should go: when he is old, he will not depart from it" (Prov. 22:6).

Conclusions for Your Meditation 

It maybe you have saved up money to buy Christmas gifts and cards and decorations and a tree. Be sure this is not pleasing to God, fellow Christian. Let me suggest to you what should be done if this is the sad case with you.

Do not spend what God has given you on temporal gifts. Do not contribute to the "good cause" of supporting a Romish Christmas entertainment in your church. Do not buy an expensive tree with its ornaments and decorations, like the Christ-hating world does. Dare to leave them all behind for Christ's sake.

Instead of all this, take what God has given you and send it as a gift to the Lord to some needy missionary in a dark and foreign land. Think awhile on those poor of the earth, those millions of souls who have never heard the glad tidings of Christ for the lack of support of real Christian missionaries. Can you use what the good Lord has given you to celebrate like the idolatrous heathen, instead of giving in order that those same poor heathen in awful darkness might hear the Gospel and be saved?

"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" (Matt. 25:40).

I have no desire to discourage one honest soul. But I have witnessed this Christmas festival of sin creeping as a deadly thing, coiling its slimy and glittering idolatries slowly and surely around the feeble Church of God as a part of Rome's program to strangle the true worship that remains. And I have found most of those who know Christ as Lord and Saviour totally unaware of the truth about Christmas. And few are the voices raised in protest of this paganism, for the honor of Jesus Christ our only Lord and Saviour.

Therefore, I have revealed to you the truth as God has shown it to me by His Word and by history and existing facts. May He make it a word in season to you. It is my hope and prayer that every Christian who discovers he has erred so exceedingly as to partake of Rome's Christmas, will turn again to the God of all grace and in contrition, utterly and forever forsake all that pertains to this Christ-dishonoring sin of Babylon. It is my desire to see, not only the souls of men saved, but the children of God walking in obedience to Him. The Apostle John said, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth'' (III John 4).

Christians are commanded to be holy (I Pet, 1:15, 16). They are to be living sacrifices (Rom. 12:1). They are to utterly forsake idolatry (Ex. 20:5). They are told to walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the fleshy desires (Gal. 5:16). They are told to stand fast in the liberty of Christ (Gal, 5:1). They are commanded to grieve not the Spirit of God (Eph. 4: 30). The Apostle said we believers ought to walk as Jesus walked (I John 2:6). Christ Himself said we should be perfect as our Heavenly Father is (Matt. 5:48). Jesus told us to set our affections on things above where He is (Col. 3:2). In Christ we are new creations (II Cor. 5:17). By His grace we have come from the hole of the pit (Isa. 51:1) to Mount Zion, the city of the Living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, into the Church of the Firstborn whose names are written in Heaven (Heb. 12:22, 23). By God's Grace we have been brought from the terrible darkness of death (Eph. 2:1) to the light of life (John 11: 6; John 8:12). We have been saved from eternal death by the blood of His dear Son (Rom. 5:9). We have been bought with a price most precious (I Pet. 1:19). We are not our own any more but His (I Cor. 6:20), and now in Christ we are temples of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 3:16).

Reader, do you now see why faithful John said "Little children, keep yourselves from idols" (I John 5:21)?

And can you pastors see now why you should faithfully warn your flocks against the idolatries of the mother of abominations?

Can you not see what terrible hypocrisy it is to hold out the Word of God in one hand to the souls of men, and welcome the heathen Christmas customs of Rome into your midst with the other?

You who would not think of honoring Rome's "Lady Fatima," are you annually welcoming Rome's Christ-mass into your own church?

And you pastors to whom has been committed the care of God's flock, do you not care if our church and nation drift on to disaster? Dare you stand in your pulpit between God and your people and yet not raise your voice against those idolatries which have caused America to be weighed in the balances and found wanting? O Pastor watchman, can you not see that God will require this nation's blood of your hand if you refuse to heed the handwriting on the wall, and if you allow Babylon's idolatrous pageantry and revelry to prosper in the Church of God for whom Christ died?

I, Leith Lyman Cunningham, have assembled writings from others as well as my own input about exposing idolatry and the paganism of Christmas that it truly is, as I have put this piece together to educate, to open minds and hearts to the truth of God. It is my hope that if even one innocent little child should have been able to avoid falling into the hands of some perverted, evil minded pedophile playing Santa Clause. A child predator on the prowl looking to molest them, using the name of Christ to get and retain contact for more repeat performances, such as the one 10-year-old little girl I have quoted in this piece that told us Santa Clause had her come back 7 times to affirm her Christmas wishes. Telling us that he had penetrated her in the process. Most probably right under the so-called watchful eye sight of a naïve, gullible, gone to sleep mother or father that has never bothered to learn the truth about such things, nor do most of them even want to know the truth, this would be someone playing around with what mommy and daddy had taught them as kids. Being of the belief that mommy and daddy wouldn’t lie, would they?  

Be this all as it may be to others, as they are apt to brand me as an alarmist or a Scrooge yelling Bah-hum-bug to something so innocent and enjoyable to the world around us. Still I am doing the work that God has given me to do in a timely fashion. And if because of what I have pains takingly searched out and written about. Then along with the truth that others have contributed here to expose Christmas as it really is. It will have been worth all of the time and energy spent in doing it. If even one person accepts and takes this to heart enough to recognize the teachings of this world of counterfeit Christianity as vile and as anti-God filthy garbage that it has become, being disguised as something pure, upright and Godly, while it is all just the opposite, that it really is from Satan the god of this world that has most all of God’s own children deceived into believing it to be the truth of God. Then I have not wasted my time. Check out the website of myself, Leith Lyman Cunningham and my good friend and brother in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, James Oliver Near.

God speaks to me in Isaiah 58:1

Isaiah 58:1 CRY ALOUD, spare not. Lift up your voice like a trumpet and declare to My people their transgression and to the house of Jacob their sins!

We of the house of Israel are the people of God in this age and time frame.

I am but one person doing the best that I know to do in following the word and way of God, as He reveals it for me to see. I am doing what God has called and trained me to do. First in believing that God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ are whom They claim to be. God the Father reproducing Himself, first in Christ, then in all of mankind to follow at His appointed time.

Then to teach me all I need to know to begin passing it on to others as He would have me do. God has shown me the error of orthodox, mainstream, and counterfeit Christianity known as The Babylon of Confusion. and how they, us or we continue to pollute the word of God to the point that it has all become as menstrual rags.

Isaiah 64:6 (EXB) All of us ·are dirty with sin [became like an unclean/defiled thing]. All ·the right things we have done [our righteous deeds] are like ·filthy pieces of cloth [filthy garments/rags; or menstrual clothes]. All of us ·are [fade; shrivel] like dead leaves, and our ·sins [iniquities], like the wind, have carried us away.

Isaiah 64:6 (CEB) We have all become like the unclean; all our righteous deeds are like a menstrual rag. All of us wither like a leaf; our sins, like the wind, carry us away. (CEB)

Romans 10:12-18 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 

I have been sent to teach, to enlighten, to speak the truth of God

And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?”  So, faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. But I ask, have they not heard? Indeed, they have, for “Their voice has gone out to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.”

God can raise up stones to preach and teach His Word and way to the world. I am living proof of the strength, power, might and omnipotence of our God. I am a high school dropout. During May of 1949, at the age of 17 I quit school and joined the United States of America Army. A year later at 18 I was a machine gunner on the front-lines against the brutal North Korean and Communist Chinese Army in the dirty business of kill or be killed insanity of war. I came home on a completely empty tank, with nothing inside or outside left to give.

God gave me the next ten years or so to self-medicate myself and chase away the war demons, it only made them worse. I have never been quite able to do that, but God did get my attention. He body slammed me down on His potters’ wheel and begin shaping and forming me into something usable, knocking off rough edges here and there as He pounded me down again and again allowing me to pay for my many mistakes along the way. It finally came down to a day in 1964 where I was unable to resist His calling me any longer. I turned my will and way over for God to use in any way He could make me useful.

I arrive here today doing the best that I know to do in serving God. He has not given up on me and my Brother Jesus Christ tells me that He will never ever leave nor forsake me. The uneducated dummy that I was, God has turned into a productive citizen. I have been teaching the word and way of God to others now for over a half century. Not by or through anything I have done for myself, but what God has done for me that I could not do for myself. God has given me a head start into becoming one of His elect to rule and reign with Jesus Christ when He returns at the first resurrection.To rule and reign with Christ along with the other elect for a thousand years until the great white throne judgment of God that will deal with the great masses of humanity whom have ever lived. A time when, all will be called, all will come, all will pass through the symbolic fire that God tells us that He is in Hebrews 12:29 Our God is a consuming fire! Having the ability to bring everyone ever born on this earth into His world ruling Kingdom right here on earth. 

I was able to write 3 substantial God revealing books during the year of 2018. They are all at the publisher at this time in their finishing faze. The titles are as follows.

#1. My salvation is certain, so is yours.

#2. WAR in big bold lettering on the upper front cover, with this caption along the bottom where it fits well.

“And the after effects on those doing the dirty work of killing.

#3 The church that Christ is building.

All of these books will be for sale on Barnes and Noble, Amazon and in book stores around the world, as well as other book outlets. This is the agreement I made with the publisher, all of their services have to be paid for in some fashion. However, I have stood all personal expense to this point, in the amount of between 7 and 8 thousand dollars. Of which I do not intend on recovering any of it. It is my free will offering to the purpose, plan and cause of God. All of the royalties I will receive during my life time will be turned around and taken out in books I will give away to others. Jimmy and myself are both of the belief that freely we have been given too, freely then we must give. Then too, God tells us to buy the truth and sell it not. So it is, in this manner that we will expose more of the truth of God to all of the world that our website reaches into. 

It is our hope that we are providing spiritual knowledge and understanding beyond the mainstream of those identifying themselves as Christian, that find themselves perpetually stuck in preaching and teaching after custom, ritual and the traditions of men as opposed to the word and way of God. My good friend and brother in our Lord and Savior Jimmy Near, my partner on our website thetruthstandsout.com. Jimmy and I have well over a hundred years combined in seeking and searching out the actual truth of God. We appreciate all of you who peruse our website for the truth once delivered. May God enlighten you all with His word. Please read my article posted on this website entitled, "The church that Christ is building".
