    Deuteronomy 16:21-Thou shalt NOT plant thee a grove of ANY TREES near unto the altar of the LORD thy GOD,which thou shall make thee. Christmas trees are of a peganism way,when we get the presents we are bowing down to the tree,even if in our hearts We aren't doing this exact thing,if you are to honor father then no tree of celebration is to be near unto him,decorating it,music about it sung.

    April: I been to a few of these Churches,some for four years when you mention it they just say who are you holier than now. Some say your probably right, but we're gonna do it anyway,it's fun, the kids love it. I mentioned a Nativity scene would be better. They just looked at me. Some even have a Santa Claus and a bunny suit. The church I grew up in Hung witches in The Church at Halloween! I Left.

    Dr.Ford: I was wondering have you tried to speak to these people and shew onto them whatever is within your heart?I use To go to a Baptist Church,and currently found out Chrismas n Easter are filled with Peganism and other beliefs from other countries all tied into an image that so many people honestly think they are worshiping GOD,yet it is an ABOMINATION unto him,we're doing the exact opposite..
