Chapter 1



Keep Christ in Christmas



Keep Christ in Christmas!



It is a saying that you have probably heard your whole life!



Every year as the month of December approaches we see it on television, hear


it on the radio and in big bold letters it(cid:146)s splashed across billboards that line the


highways and byways.



As the holiday gets closer, churches that are normally bright take on an almost


surrealistic darkness. The sanctuaries that are supposed to be set aside for


prayer, worship and instruction in the Word of God; are instead decked out with


a tree, wreaths, candles and the other trappings that mark one of the most


hallowed days in all of Christendom.



Red and green (the traditional colors of the Season) are splashed across the


pews, the podium, the walls and the outer court with such magnitude, that it


looks as if a painter with only those two colors went mad. Mangers are


constructed and plays of the first Christmas staring the children of the church are


rehearsed.



Here in the USA, the day after Thanksgiving is the biggest sale day of the year.


Stores and malls open at unbelievably early hours (usually before dawn) in the


hopes of getting the first shoppers before the money is spent elsewhere. They


begin erecting the most elaborate scenes imaginable in anticipation of the


crowds that will descend on them before Christmas Day to spend, spend, and


then spend some more! The throne for Santa Claus is assembled and children


wait anxiously for their annual visit to see Old Saint Nick so they can give to him


their Christmas wish list.



Work places, gas stations, and just about anywhere else you go are draped in


the coverings and emblems of the Season. It is not unusual to see a co-worker


or someone else sporting a Santa hat during the holidays and greeting you with


a hearty (cid:147)Merry Christmas.(cid:148)



In the midst of all of this we hear, (cid:147)Keep Christ in Christmas.(cid:148)



Apart from all of the merchandising and hoopla that go along with the season


there are those that proclaim that the birth of the Savior Jesus Christ is the true


meaning of Christmas!





1






They are also the very people that claim Easter Sunday is the day that Jesus


Christ rose from the grave.



But are Christmas and Easter really Christian holy days?



According to centuries old tradition, of course they are!



But have you ever wondered where the practice of celebrating the birth of


Jesus Christ on December 25th originated? From year to year the same date


will fall on different days of the week. So how it that the Resurrection of the


Lord is always celebrated on a Sunday year after year?



Just how were these dates arrived at?



What about the tree, wreaths, advent candles, Santa Claus, the giving of


presents, mistletoe, holly or the myriad other details that go along with the


Christmas festivals? What about bunny rabbits, eggs and bonnets?



Who decided that these things should be a part of the celebration of the birth


and Resurrection of Christ?



And even more importantly, why?



Something sinister lies beneath the surface of these so-called holy days. The


reasoning behind them is steeped in intrigue, compromise and ungodly religion.



To fully understand where this all came from we will need to examine God(cid:146)s


Word, the Holy Bible; and study some world history.

Chapter 2



How it all started



As recorded in the Book of Genesis in the Bible, God created the universe, and


this little blue dot floating in space we all call home.



(cid:147)In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.(cid:148)


Genesis 1:1



God fashioned Adam, the first man, from the very Earth that He had made.



(cid:147)And the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground,


and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became


a living soul.(cid:148) Genesis 2:7




From that first man, God created woman.




(cid:147)And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and


he slept: and he took one of his ribs...and [from] the rib, which the


Lord God had taken from man, [He] made a woman.(cid:148)


Genesis 2:21; 22



The LORD God put them in the perfect place to live (cid:150) a paradise called the


Garden of Eden. There, Adam and Eve would have fellowship with their Creator,


and abide in peace and harmony with everything the LORD had made.



However, before the LORD had made Eve from Adam(cid:146)s rib, He told Adam that


he could eat from any tree in the Garden (cid:150) except one.



(cid:147)And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden


of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God


commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou


mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and


evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof


thou shalt surely die.(cid:148) Genesis 2:15-17



Since Eve was not present during that conversation, she was an easy target


for the devil. Satan appeared to her as a serpent and convinced her to doubt


God(cid:146)s command.



(cid:147)Now the serpent was more [subtle] than any beast of the field


which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman,


Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?(cid:148)


Genesis 3:1



3







She was deceived by the lust for pretty things and the desire to be wise


APART from God.



(cid:147)And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,


and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to


make one wise she took of the fruit thereof and did eat(cid:133)(cid:148)


Genesis 3:6a




The worse part of this scenario is that her husband was there with her. Old


Jewish legend tells us that because Adam loved Eve so much he was willing to


suffer the consequences of disobeying the LORD, rather then be separated from


his wife. So they ate of the fruit that God had commanded them not to eat.



(cid:147)(cid:133)and gave also to her husband with her; and he did eat.(cid:148)


Genesis 3:6b (emphasis mine)



This one act of rebellion by Adam introduced sin and death into the entire


world.



(cid:147)Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world,


and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all


have sinned.(cid:148) Romans 5:12



They were banished from the Garden of Eden and from that point on


mankind(cid:146)s fellowship with God was broken.



(cid:147)Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of


Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove


out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden


Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to


keep the way of the tree of life.(cid:148) Genesis 3:23-24



Even though they were driven from the Garden, mankind flourished. But


because of the sin nature that all men inherited through the disobedience of


Adam, tremendous evil was born into the heart of man. And that wickedness


became very great.



(cid:147)And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in earth, and


that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil


continually.(cid:148) Genesis 6:5

3







She was deceived by the lust for pretty things and the desire to be wise


APART from God.



(cid:147)And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,


and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to


make one wise she took of the fruit thereof and did eat(cid:133)(cid:148)


Genesis 3:6a




The worse part of this scenario is that her husband was there with her. Old


Jewish legend tells us that because Adam loved Eve so much he was willing to


suffer the consequences of disobeying the LORD, rather then be separated from


his wife. So they ate of the fruit that God had commanded them not to eat.



(cid:147)(cid:133)and gave also to her husband with her; and he did eat.(cid:148)


Genesis 3:6b (emphasis mine)



This one act of rebellion by Adam introduced sin and death into the entire


world.



(cid:147)Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world,


and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all


have sinned.(cid:148) Romans 5:12



They were banished from the Garden of Eden and from that point on


mankind(cid:146)s fellowship with God was broken.



(cid:147)Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of


Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove


out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden


Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to


keep the way of the tree of life.(cid:148) Genesis 3:23-24



Even though they were driven from the Garden, mankind flourished. But


because of the sin nature that all men inherited through the disobedience of


Adam, tremendous evil was born into the heart of man. And that wickedness


became very great.



(cid:147)And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in earth, and


that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil


continually.(cid:148) Genesis 6:5
