    Don't be so judgemental. It's not up to you, or any of us, to determine who is a "serious Christian" and who isn't..

    Open Theism and Molinism, two inept theological camps, do err in this sense; God doesn't have an R&D department, He does all things perfectly.

    A god who can be fashioned by our own thoughts is no more a god than an image produced by our own hands. - Charles Spurgeon

    All while people freeze to death all over the nation. Who knows, maybe one less pair of pants, socks or an orange in a sock, would be money better spent than on self self self. But then again, charities would probably use it for the Christmas party.


    Oh please, perhaps that is your perception of it and if that is your perception it is a very cynical one.

    People give generously in this nation all year round and not just at Christmas. But, there should be and there will always be a special time set aside to celebrate the meaning of Christmas.

    Our household celebrates Christmas.
    When our kids were younger were used to get a birthday cake and put a candle on it and light it.

    Then we would sing happy birthday to Jesus.

    That's not the point. It isn't for us to speculate whether people are Christians or not.. And exactly where and how did he disrespect Jesus' name or birthday?

    Did you know that catholics believe in the trinity? Must be false!
    They also believe in heaven, those dolts!

    My point is that, this is all guilt by association.

    In fact I am not happy with your cat avatar. Cats were worshiped in pagan Egypt. Take it down!

    What about celebrating christmass without pagan, commercial or cultural additions?

    Without buying expensive gifts, without santa claus and without other silly things?

    I think HOW you (general you) celebrate a holiday, determines whether it's pagan or not. If you celebrate Halloween by going out and doing blood sacrifices, then you're celebrating it the way pagans do. Same with Christmas, if you're in it only for the biggest and best presents, or literally worship the tree, then you are doing it the way pagans do.

    The celebration of Christmas was illegal in Massachusetts, which was settled by Puritans, who were against the High Anglican Church. Christmas was celebrated in Virginia and the southern colonies which were settled by the Anglicans. So, it is a fallacy to say Christmas was outlawed in the entire United States three hundred years ago.

    I didn't see it that way at all.. There's nothing wrong with "Christ mass". It's a mass of people who celebrate Christ's birth. And NOWHERE in the title OR any of his posts, has he said we should be ashamed for celebrating Christmas. He was actually referring to how we do or don't celebrate the holiday...

    I see what you are saying, hence why I asked a couple of questions above.

    I hope you don't me saying so but maybe at times is best to ask for clarification before answering.
