Re: if
I'd tell him that I like the secular traditions...that it's a fun thing to do with people.

Then I'd proceed to ask him so many things, to try and gain clarity on the religion that was named after him.

I'd also probably ask him to come hang out and talk more often.

Well for one, he wouldn't, but it would be to tell him the truth, just like I'm telling you. Right Now.

For Thanks :)

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30108220


Jesus in turn would air grievances as to how his name was put on a Holiday that neither he himself celebrated, nor commanded his true followers to celebrate, a celebration whose roots can be traced back to Pagan Rome, with its mixture of festivals of honoring the agricultural god Saturn and the sun god Sol. yes, Jesus has grievances with the "deities" that put his name on a pagan holiday. a man made holiday with no truth to back it. As Jesus said at Matthew 15:9- "It is in vain that they keep worshipping me, because they teach commands of men as doctrines".

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30808623


Yes, its a Holiday celebrated out of compulsion, for the most part. IF it were a holiday that truly had God and Jesus blessing, would not it not produce fruitage that proved that? the Bible says : " Let each one do just as he has resolved in his heart, not grudgingly, or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver"- { 2 Corinthians 9:7}. Christmas hardly produces that spirit.

Obviously a hypothetical question- because so many lack faith in what they cannot see. If Jesus were before the face of people, they may examine in a different light why they celebrate a holiday that dishonors his name

 Quoting: Being * gnieB


Because our seasons, celebrations, and traditions are inherently empty of meaning. It is we who give meaning to them.

Else, why would religious people use the pagan-derived names of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday? Or January, February...?

It might be of interest to look up the origin of the Christmas tree, then one might reconsider if Jesus would decorate such a thing. It is also of interest that no where in the Bible do we find Jesus or any other First Century Christian decorating a tree or observing any other part this celebration.

My friend, I suppose you are going to quote dear old Jeremiah 10 now. Don't bother as it has nothing to do with Christmas.

Or perhaps you will tell me that it's PAGAN!!

Why is this so important to you? 99.99% of everything we do didn't originate with Jesus. So why pick on one thing?

What is important - and what we should be striving for - is that you are immensely loved and have incredible worth in the eyes of Father. May we all open our hearts widely to receive that love. If we can do that, most everything else falls into its proper place.

Blessings.

Re: if
I would tell Him it is because it is tradition to mark the winter solstice with celebration, and i would thank Him for His testamony to the truth that may one day make all men free. Free of violence, free of ignorant stupidity, free of depravity and free of sin & death. That due to the memory of what He did, one day this world might become as God intented and that all souls might yet again know their creator instead of believing they are an orphaned cosmic accident.
