This page is going to examine the claims of many that the holidays celebrated by Christians are rooted in the customs and beliefs of paganism (heathens/Mystery Babylon etc.). This area of study and focus is very dangerous to the spiritual condition of believers and needs to be addressed. I myself fell into this trap many years ago and it has taken me a long time to wake up to the errors and falsehood I was believing and teaching.
Most, if not all, of the claims of Christian holidays being rooted in paganism are erroneous. Some are outright lies, some are half-truths but the result of bearing false witness is still seen. These lies are dividing the body of Christ and are abominable in the eyes of God.
Pro 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: Pro 6:17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, Pro 6:18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, Pro 6:19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
I believe most who believe and teach these things, like myself in the past, are sincere people seeking the truth who have been misled by men of cunning craftiness (Ephesians 4:14). I hope to share some things I’ve learned which have helped me see more clearly the errors of those who claim Christian doctrine is “pagan” and hopefully edify the body of Christ in so doing.
This page will be dedicated to the subject of holidays celebrated by Christians in light of the Word of God, history and the teachings of the early Church.
