Christmas: WhenPagan rituals and festivals

meet the Catholic Church


For Santa Claus to become a household name, something or someone had to promote this as being a 'good' thing.  You can thank the Roman catholic church for that, as they wanted to unify the pagan world with the roman world.  the Roman Catholic Church 'decided' to take the pagan rituals that many were used to and 'incorporate' them into 'Christianity', deeming the rituals NOT pagan anymore.  Of course you know that these pagan rituals of Saturnalia brought in the money for the church and keep the Roman empire cohesive.  It was the Catholic Church that 'decided' that Dec 25th was a good day  for their 'Christ's Mass', and THEY deemed that Jesus' birthday should be on that same day.  Never mind that Jesus was most likely born in September, but 'they' decided that this was good enough.


It is interesting how 'they' still determine things for people today.


SO, the Roman empire mixed the pagan rituals of Saturnalia with 'Jesus' and declared this as how things are to be.  Many people to this day never checked with Jesus to see if December 25th is really His birthday; they just believe it because it is a tradition.


And you wonder why the devil continues to deceive the whole world.


The Church can tell people all they want that the winter festivals are all about Jesus and we are to believe that this is the way it is.  They never asked Jesus; they never asked the Holy Ghost; they never even asked Jesus' Father.

Christmas is the amalgamation of two pagan Winter Solstace celebrations - Saturnalia and Yule


True to form, the Catholic Church was instrumental in getting the whole world to celebrate Christmas, but where did the Catholic Church get this celebration from?  You do not have to look very far because the Catholic Church is the purveyor of this scourge we call "Christmas".


In typical Catholic Church fashion, the Catholic Church incorporated two pagan rituals into a "Christ's Mass", and this is where we get "Christmas" from.  One of the pagan rituals was celebrating Saturn, and that ritual was call Saturnalia.  The other ritual that the Catholic Church incorporated was the Winter Solstice ritual of Yule.  We will explain what these are in the next few paragraphs.

Saturnalia


From Wikipedia:


Saturnalia was an ancient Roman festival in honour of the god Saturn, held on 17 December of the Julian calendar and later expanded with festivities through to 23 December. The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice at the Temple of Saturn, in the Roman Forum, and a public banquet, followed by private gift-giving, continual partying, and a carnival atmosphere that overturned Roman social norms: gambling was permitted, and masters provided table service for their slaves. The poet Catullus called it "the best of days". It was the Roman equivalent to the earlier Greek holiday of Kronia, which was celebrated during the Attic month of Hekatombaion in late midsummer.


In Roman mythology, Saturn was an agricultural deity who was said to have reigned over the world in the Golden Age, when humans enjoyed the spontaneous bounty of the earth without labor in a state of innocence. The revelries of Saturnalia were supposed to reflect the conditions of the lost mythical age, not all of them desirable. The Greek equivalent was the Kronia, which was celebrated on the twelfth day of the month of Hekatombaion, which occurred from around mid-July to mid-August on the Attic calendar.


Saturnalia is a festival of light leading to the winter solstice, with the abundant presence of candles symbolizing the quest for knowledge and truth. The renewal of light and the coming of the new year was celebrated in the later Roman Empire at the Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, the "Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun", on 23 December.


The popularity of Saturnalia continued into the 3rd and 4th centuries AD, and as the Roman Empire came under Christian rule, many of its customs were recast into or at least influenced the seasonal celebrations surrounding Christmas and the New Year.

Now you can see for yourself that Saturnalia was the worship of the pagan god Saturn, and this is the basis of what the Catholic Church incorporated into its "Mass".  As you can also see, the Roman were party animals - they used this time for gift giving and a lot of partying (and yes, that included a lot of sex).

Yule


From Wikipedia:


Yule or Yuletide ("Yule time" or "Yule season") is a festival historically observed by the Germanic peoples. Scholars have connected the original celebrations of Yule to the Wild Hunt, the god Odin, and the pagan Anglo-Saxon Mōdraniht.


Later departing from its pagan roots, Yule underwent Christianized reformulation, resulting in the term Christmastide. Many present-day Christmas customs and traditions such as the Yule logYule goatYule boarYule singing, and others stem from pagan Yule traditions. Terms with an etymological equivalent to Yule are still used in Nordic countries and Estonia to describe Christmas and other festivals occurring during the winter holiday season. Today, Yule is celebrated in Heathenry and other forms of Neopaganism, as well as in LaVeyan Satanism.


Notice the following passage from Gotquestions.org regarding Yule:


Yule was the name of a winter festival that occurred in December and January on the German lunar calendar. In the fourth century, the church decided to celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ at that time with a 12-day feast, often called Epiphany or the Feast of the Nativity. They planned the feast to correspond with the pagan holiday, the feast of Sol Invictus, which celebrated the winter solstice and the gradually lengthening days of increased sunlight.


The governing passage is this: "The church decided..."


Who authorized the 'rededication' of this pagan winter festival to be the celebratoin of the Lord Jesus Christ's birth?  Jesus certainly did NOT authorize this, so someone in the chuch "decided" to make this pagan festival "Christianized" so it would fit the Catholic Church's definition of a "celebration".  This will also let you know that the church "decided" to celebrate Jesus' birth and Jesus did not sanction, authorise or want any of His Disciples or Followers to celebrate ANYTHING of His birth or death.  Yet, we see these celebrations all the time, propogated by the Catholic Church.


This is what you are dealing with, as you CANNOT take something that is pagan and then "Christianize" it so it will be accepted as "Christian".  The Catholic church is EVIL, and as you can see, it perpetuates the evil that it is.  You can take a look in history and you will see that wherever there are atrocities and abominations done in the name of "God", you will find the Catholic Church right smack in the middle of all of it.

Take a good look at the picture above and you will see a pretty good synopsis of what Christmas REALLY is.   You CANNOT take something that is unholy and pagan and make it into something that is "Holy", as the Catholic Church has been doing for centuries.  This is why you see the debauchery and the sodomites in the Catholic Church - it is because the Catholic church was NEVER of Christ.


Now you can see how that unholy entity, the Catholic Church, has spread its poison to the whole world by getting people to celebrate "Christmas" as a "holy" holiday that is supposedly of Christ becausde they gave the Lord Jesus Christ lip service by "declaring" that winter solstace the time Jesus was born and that should be celebrated at that time.


This is one of the main reasons why Christmas is so evil, Christian, and any Christian who knows the Lord Jesus Christ personally will NEVER celebrate a holiday that has pagan roots.

Not buying it, are you?


We are going to end this article with some hope and exhortation that you get with the Lord Jesus Christ and get your forgiveness for this travesty that is destroying households all over the world.  Learn how to keep your household Holy, as the Lord has commanded His Disciples to be Holy.  Learn how to go to the Lord Jesus Christ FIRST and ask HIM before you follow ANY 'tradition'.


Why is it that this is not being taught in churches today?  Can we not see that worshipping a tree (we know, it sounds stupid when you are not spellbound by it), dumping the Holy Ghost for the Christmas Spirit, and thinking that following the canons of the Roman Catholic Church which put our Lord and Saviour in a stank, nasty, poo filled, smelly manger and exalting Him as 'baby Jesus' is NOT what the Lord wants us to do?


We already know that 99% of the people reading this article will reject it and say 'I am going to worship the Baby Jesus ANYWAY, no matter what these clowns say'.  You can do that, as you have a free will.  We are here to proclaim the gospel, not sell it.  It is up to you to dig into this for yourself.  It is up to YOU to ask Jesus if what we have posted is true.  It is up to you to make that determination because YOUR salvation is on the line, NOT ours.  We are to worship the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and in TRUTH, and thinking that a big fat, stank, nasty, reindeer sleigh driving man with gifts, who will NOT fit in a chimney no matter how much you stuff him into it is TRUTH is up to YOU to decide.   If you think we are wrong, then that is fine; you have a free will.  YOU can choose to believe what you want to.


We also used Wikipedia as a source  to show you that this information is readily available to you if you were to just look it up.  The devil doesn't even hide it anymore because he knows that many of you are having 'fun' rather than studying  the Word of God, righty dividing the Word, talking with Jesus Christ as often as possible so you can make it into the Kingdom of God by casting aside all traditions that are of the devil.


The devil goes as far to tell you that he is EVIL, but you don't care.  You would rather have 'fun' than to know the truth, repent, and get those sins off of your ledger.


However, if you can see that the whole world lies with the wicked one, and you are serious about being a true Disciple of Christ, take some time and ask Jesus Directly about what you have read.  As we always say on this site - Don't take our word for ANYTHING.  Always go to Jesus Directly and ask Him about what was posted.  It is up to YOU, Christian, as it is YOUR salvation that is on the line. 

Here is Our Challenge

to you, Christian


OK, so you have read the Hot Topics.  We challenge you to go to Jesus directly RIGHT NOW and ask Him if what is shown here is true.  Use this as a means to start a conversation with The Lord Jesus Christ and sit with Him and ask Him questions.  Start with (asking out loud):


“Jesus, is what I just read true?”


He will answer you, Christian, and NOW you will be on the true road to salvation, knowing for SURE if you are going to make it or not, as Jesus would have told you.  Keep talking with Him.  Get to know Him and He will start to reveal Himself to you.  You need to find out for yourself and work out YOUR salvation for YOU, as the scriptures tell us to.


As a part of your salvation, it is recommended that you  FORGIVE the pastors and the churches that were sending you to hell.  For many pastors, this is what they were taught in the seminary.  Many 'pastors' that pastor a church don't even know Jesus and are not authorized to be a pastor, as Jesus did not send them.  Forgive them and pray for them so they may escape damnation by repenting of their sin of misleading many people.  Get more tips on how to talk to the Lord directly here.


In closing, we want to give you an EXACT QUOTE we got from Jesus Himself:


"Disciples of mine will make it into my Kingdom; Christians will NOT."


Take heed, Christian, and don't just blow this off.  What is being presented here is IMPORTANT!!  Read and understand what the Lord Jesus Christ is saying  to all of us.  As we always say, do not take anything we say as the gospel; ALWAYS confirm what you are reading or hearing by running it by the Lord Jesus Christ yourself.  Keep talking to Jesus and He will respond to you.  Have Him explain WHY what is being said is true.  Talk with the Lord Jesus Christ and get to know Him personally.


We will say this again:


We do not care what you believe, Christian, because it is YOUR salvation that is at stake.  All we are saying is that you should go to Jesus Christ directly and ask HIM what He thinks and go with that truth.  As we always say on this site - don't take our word for anything. Go to the Lord Jesus Christ directly and personally ask Him if what is being posted is true or not, and go with that.
