Celebrating holidays
« on: March 02, 2007, 01:37:00 AM »

Since most holidays to my belief is pagan in orgin or at least has pagan practice to a point.
 I was wondering how you celebrate or if you do?
I especially was wondering about Christmas for those that have small children.

Jackie Lee,

  This topic has been dicusses in another thread.  This topic was very explosive and did start to cause strife.  It started as a general open discussion but got heated.

  I leave you with the gist of what Joe said in the end, that it matters to the individual and God.  Which is the way that it should be.

  I refuse to contribute my opionion as this question/thread in the past was explosive and wish not to contribue schism in the group.  I know that another person started this topic not too long ago, and the topic was removed.

  If anything that I say, please to all who respond, do so in an encouraging manner as well as in a loving and a nonjudemental manner.  Remember we are all at different stages and in different places on the learning curves.

  Sincerely,




  Anne C. McGuire

Hi

I am not trying to generate strife. But, I did find this interesting.
My wife and I were members of the World Wide Church of God for many years, when they frowned on celebrating Christmas. After having celebrated Christmas for over 40(including as children) years , we stopped celebrating it and let our families know why (because it is not commanded in the scriptures). They never created any problems for us because of it. Actually , it saved us a lot of money so we were better able to  pay our three tithes to the church. I don't know what kind of funny face to put on this.

We still do not celebrate Christmas and it turns out to be fairly great because we do not have to fight the lines at the mall, over charge our charge cards, find money to pay for all the stuff people don't need, and try not to offend people for not outspending them, etc.

It is also strange that many leaders and people in Evangilistic churches realize the fact that Christmas is not required scriptually . I take my mother to church Sunday's (she was baptized a few years ago into an Evangjilistic church). The Sunday school teacher will bring up subjects that he has people comment on. He brought up a list of traditions and Christmas was one. I told them that  I do not celebrate it, and considered it a tradition, along with all the stress of doing it. He agreed to it being a tradition and not scriiptual, and being stressful. This actually surprised me.

I was reading about the World Wide Church of God before I found this site.
They have some good teachings but other things I wouldn't like.
