Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 12:6


12:6 Thither bring your burnt - offerings - Which were wisely appropriated to that one place, for the security of the true religion, and for the prevention of idolatry and superstition, which might otherwise more easily have crept in: and to signify that their sacrifices were not accepted for their own worth, but by God's gracious, appointment, and for the sake of God's altar, by which they were sanctified, and for the sake of Christ, whom the altar manifestly represented. Your heave - offerings - That is, your first - fruits, of corn, and wine, and oil, and other fruits. And these are called the heave - offerings of their hand, because the offerer was first to take these into his hands, and to heave them before the Lord, and then to give them to the priest. Your free - will - offerings - Even your voluntary oblations, which were not due by my prescription, but only by your own choice: you may chuse what kind of offering you please to offer, but not the place where you shall offer them.

    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..
