The topic of Christmas has been covered extensively by many people for many years. Its pagan origins, its commercial value to the world, the fact that even the enemies of Christ celebrate it, all are indisputable facts. It is probably the second most emotional charged topic in society next to abortion. This study will not rehash these things. It will take a strictly biblical view. Should we as those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins, who claim our authority the Bible as being God’s word be associated with this rite called Christmas?

 From time to time I have been ask to describe a proper Christian life. Now there is quite a bit one can reference from the Scriptures on this subject; but I have found that all can be reduced  to only three things that are needful to fulfill our duty to God and man:

SERVICE ~ SACRIFICE ~ SUFFERING

SERVICE

Preparing and presenting ourselves for God's use:

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 Timothy 2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

So it is with men, we think we know right and wrong. We decide what is important to observe and what words of God can be disregarded. It is as common today as any feature of life for the word of God to be reasoned away. That was then, this is now; you have to look at the culture of the times the Bible was written in, etc. Unfortunately for those who let the words of Scripture drop, the Lord wrote in similitudes.
