I happened to chance upon this Christmas advert and it got me so well I thought I should share with our readers.
Often people complain about the repression in so-called Islamic nations, and often people hit back that they aren’t all the same. They aren’t, but taking measures like banning a celebration of other people’s faith just sends the message of how repressive you are.
Recently, the Kingdom of Brunei banned the celebration of Christmas within its borders. Whilst Christians would be allowed to celebrate within their own communities, they have to alert authorities beforehand- and the country’s majority Muslim population are to be shielded from the Christmas festivities, as it might ‘damage their faith’.
It’s been a long debated topic, what are the true origins of the Christian celebration of the birth of Christ. With this year almost at its end, it is a topic worth revisiting.
Christmas is quite possibly the biggest global holiday, celebrated in most of the world. Even in many non Christian countries festivities are carried out just in accordance with the season, especially because The New Year is the New Year everywhere, and Christmas is just a week beforehand.
So should Christians be revelling in the festivities reserved for the 25th of December every year? What are the origins of the choice of date, and what are the meanings behind those.
To begin with, the bible makes no mention of the birth date of Jesus. It cannot be proven that Jesus was born anywhere near December; and whilst even a mention in the bible would not have been incontrovertible proof, at least it would have been something you could hang your hat on. As it stands even that does not exist.
As with most things surrounding organised religion, a group of people sat somewhere and made a decision for the rest of the populace. When it occurred that the birth of Jesus had to be celebrated, a convenient time was chosen, one that would help in converting heathens of the time as well as be the most attractive to followers of the faith.
As sources, I’m using two pieces I found in my research; one making the argument for Christmas and the other against Christmas. What both agree on though, is that 25th December has significance far predating the birth of Christ.
The issue of Christmas being a celebration for pagans or Christians is nothing new. One argument against Christmas is that the traditions surrounding the holiday have origins in paganism.
This is something not to tell a Christian because it is heresy to mention paganism. The General overseer of the Deeper Life Church has admonished all Christians to avoid celebration because it is idolatrous and unscriptural. According to him:
We don’t celebrate Christmas. It actually came from idolatrous background. That is why you don’t hear us sing what they call Christmas carol. Never! We always say it is the December retreat. We are only gathering together because it is the holiday period and love the Lord more, and rededicate ourselves more.
“When you find anybody coming in, or any leader, trying to introduce the idolatry of mystery Babylon, that they call Christmas and you want to bring all the Christmas carol saying that is the day that Jesus was born, and you don’t find that in the Acts of the Apostles or in the early church, then you don’t find that in the church either. If you don’t know that before, now you know.”
He warned that any of the church’s leaders that tried to introduce the “idolatry of Christmas” into any section of the church would be sanctioned, while also encouraging other believers in Christ to jettison the celebration as part of their sacrifice to perfection.
Kumuyi said the duty of the church was to make people more like Jesus Christ and not join in worldly celebrations.
“We are not trying to make the church turn like the world. We want it to be like Jesus Christ, and more like the Apostles. If you don’t have that mind with us, then you have permission to go to other places,”
Bells, candles, holly, and yuletide decorations are mentioned in the history of pagan worship and we use the same to decorate our trees. Christians who choose to ignore Christmas point to the fact that the Bible doesn’t give us the date of Christ’s birth, which is certainly true. December 25 may not be even close to the time Jesus was born. Those Christians who do celebrate Christmas often see the occasion as an opportunity to proclaim Christ as “the reason for the season” among the nations.
