Why Christmas is Not Christian

Listing Some of the Reasons

We list some of the reasons why Christmas is not and cannot be a Christian holiday. It has nothing to do with the God or Jesus Christ of the Bible

  • It makes a mockery of the true Christian faith
  • December 25th is not the birth day of Christ
  • The Scriptures do not tell us to observe the birth of Christ
  • It is based on pagan observances and symbols
  • It was started by the Roman Catholic Church
  • Suicide rate is up at Christmas time
  • Crime rate is up at Christmas time
  • Covetousness is rampant
  • People go into debt because of Christmas
  • It is a time of riotous merrymaking and partying
  • Alcohol related accidents are up at Christmas time
  • Christmas causes parents to be liars and deceivers
  • It breeds loneliness for many unable to be with family/friends
  • Christmas makes hypocrites of those who give grudgingly
  • Most people are stressed out, unhappy and just glad when it is over
  • It was outlawed in Americas' original thirteen colonies
  • Christmas is loved by the world
  • Whatever is very popular in the world is not of God
  • and many more ungodly things this holiday gives.

Our problem is not so much with the holiday any more than with any other pagan festival, but our real complaint is that people try and tie Christmas to God and Christ which in reality is blasphemy against a HOLY God.

That which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. ~ Luke 16:15b; Colossians 2:8 ; Mark 7:13 tiny cross
