You shall remember and keep the Sabbath day holy. Respect your father and mother. You must not commit murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not give false evidence against your neighbor
  • Sarah on Deuteronomy 1
    This would change only after Constantine converted to Christianity. From the mid-fourth century on, we do find Christians deliberately adapting and Christianizing pagan festivals. A famous proponent of this practice was Pope Gregory the Great, who, in a letter written in 601 C.E. to a Christian missionary in Britain, recommended that local pagan temples not be destroyed but be convert into churchs

    There is no biblical history concerning the birth of Christ. We know He was not born in December, somewhere in the fall. The tree is a heathen custom. Jeremiah 10: 1-5
  • Sarah on Deuteronomy 1
    They claimed that because the early Christians didn t know when Jesus was born, they simply assimilated the pagan solstice festival for their own purposes, claiming it as the time of the Messiah s birth and celebrating it accordingly. More recent studies have shown that many of the holiday s modern trappings do reflect pagan customs borrowed much later, as Christianity expanded into northern
  • Sarah on Deuteronomy 1
    on a manuscript of the writings of the Syriac biblical commentator Dionysius bar-Salibi states that in ancient times the Christmas holiday was actually shifted from January 6 to December 25 so that it fell on the same date as the pagan Sol Invictus holiday.5 In the 18th and 19th centuries, Bible scholars spurred on by the new study of comparative religions latched on to this idea.6 They claimed
  • Sarah on Deuteronomy 1
    Despite its popularity today, this theory of Christmas s origins has its problems. It is not found in any ancient Christian writings, for one thing. Christian authors of the time do note a connection between the solstice and Jesus birth: It s not until the 12th century that we find the first suggestion that Jesus birth celebration was deliberately set at the time of pagan feasts. A marginal note

    on December 25. Christmas, the argument goes, is really a spin-off from these pagan solar festivals. According to this theory, early Christians deliberately chose these dates to encourage the spread of Christmas and Christianity throughout the Roman world: If Christmas looked like a pagan holiday, more pagans would be open to both the holiday and the God whose birth it celebrated.
  • Sarah on Deuteronomy 1
    The most loudly touted theory about the origins of the Christmas date s is that it was borrowed from pagan celebrations. The Romans had their mid-winter Saturnalia festival in late December barbarian peoples of northern and western Europe kept holidays at similar times. To top it off, in 274 C.E., the Roman emperor Aurelian established a feast of the birth of Sol Invictus the Unconquered Sun ,
  • Sarah on Deuteronomy 1
    Tertullian c. 160 225 . Origen of Alexandria c. 165 264 goes so far as to mock Roman celebrations of birth anniversaries, dismissing them as pagan practices a strong indication that Jesus birth was not marked with similar festivities at that place and time.1 As far as we can tell, Christmas was not celebrated at all at this point.
  • Sarah on Deuteronomy 1
    .Celebrations of Jesus Nativity are not mentioned in the Gospels or Acts the date is not given, not even the time of year. The Catholic church changed it .The extrabiblical evidence from the first and second century is equally spare: There is no mention of birth celebrations in the writings of early Christian writers such as Irenaeus c. 1Tertullian c. 160 225 . Origen of AlTertullian c. 1
  • V. Cartwright - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Genesis 1:2: The Spirit was already present, ready to act as soon as the order should be given. The Holy Spirit has always been doing this very work. The divine Agent has ever been present to assist in the work of creation and redemption, to reprove and strengthen wayward souls, to comfort the sorrowing and to present the believer's prayers in an acceptable form to God.
  • Tom on Psalms 23
    By family request I will be reading the 23rd Psalm in a memorial for a dear 95 years young lady. It is "her favorite". Says it all, for her faith, for her graciousness and for the love she invested in everyone around her. That investment continuous to bless us all. We will miss her, but are filled with joy to have known her here and are celebrating her victory with Jesus. !!

    IT is not written in the bible Jesus dob. It explains the conception of John the Baptist and lead into the time Gabriel visited Mary and said she was highly favored among women. Our months are not the same as theirs. Their calendar was the Nissan calendar. Read Luke 1:21-32. Christmas is a Pagan holiday. We are to commemorate, memorialize Holy days not holidays. ex- Passover, Unleavened bread.

  • Christian - in Reply on Ephesians 2
    you are not going to heaven if you think you can add your good works or righteousness to the work of Jesus Christ to get salvation. it is in the works of Christ alone that we are saved, not of our works least any should boast.

    Yes Hazel, You are so right. The glory and magnificence of his Being and Word are truly beyond our understanding. Then He also indwells us with His Holy Spirit. He loved us so much that His only Son came and paid the supreme price for our eternal deliverance.All we have to do is to receive His gift. May all of us truly know that the greatest word in Elohim's vocabulary is LOVE ! ! ! jrock.

  • I AM THAT I AM: - in Reply on Daniel 10
    Nay. For no man who is of the truth can reject the truth: For it is written in the Holy Scriptures, of CHRIST: And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected: but received me as an Angel of God, EVEN as Christ Jesus.

    The Maccabees was not an "inspired"book the writing of these books was during a period where there were no prophets. None of the books are mentioned in Our bibles. Glad you are searching,Cling to the inspired scripture of Our Father.Prayer for you and blessings.

    For MANY shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ: and shall deceive MANY. And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for A WITNESS unto all nations: and then shall the end come.
  • Patty Tozi on 1 Timothy 3
    To help others before yourself is a great gift from God to understand Him. Helps are giving yourself as Jesus did for us. Challenging yourself for anything God puts in front of you. Getting out of your rot of self and complaining.Sound familiar? Well- do something about it this holiday season. Open your eyes and Love God for for putting you into a situation you had to use God's Love! Understand!
