I guess to you OT everyone but you is a Heathen or Pagan.



Greeny2,

I do not suggest this at all. For I know many who are Christians...and not just myself. I think you can do better than this..much better.


Frostedman,

But to suggest that Christianity was effectively borne from Paganism? Hogwash.


I do not suggest that Christianity was born from Paganism. But I do understand that efforts were made from the beginning to infiltrate the system of God and replace or overlay it with another belief system...privily ..with subtlety...unawares. And we see this history and attempt takeing place .. both among the Hebrews and today among the Christians..privily ...without many being aware of it happening. And this from the Garden of Eden unto today.

This is the essence of the series called "The Ever War" in explain this shift and substitution to those unaware or untutored in it.

The difference in paganism and Christianity is the fruit it produces. Yesterday as well as today. And this too is covered in " The Ever War."

Oh... um.... sorry. Had a flashback from the Black Friday stampede madness.

No one really knows the date. One theory is it was set to coincide with pagan traditions being celebrated in that season. Another theory was proposed around 200-300AD and that was working back from Jesus's death. He was crucified in the spring and going back all those years and 9 months, they settled on that date.

Again, no one knows. Currently, there is a christian group somewhere in Europe that celebrates Christmas Day as Jan 6th or 7th. They have been doing so for centuries. So, for them, the whole pagan holiday, winter solstice, etc...doesn't even come into play.
Dawkins thinks belief in God is an excuse to evade thinking in the scientific world. Sadly, he is ignorant to the list of christian scientists who have contributed & founded many of the sciences he himself believes in. How ironic.

Agree...Joe..no one knows. And I dont worry about it at all..His Birthday is not important to me at all. No birthday is important to me as I decided some years past to stop with all of them.

When I learned to think ouside the box of most manmade tradition and custom...I realized the importance of Jesus the Christ for Remission of Sins...is for whom He died...for whom He shed His Blood...not His birthday.

From there I began to look at other things or indexes of man made custom and tradition around me and I realized much of it was after the pattern of which the Hebrews were disobedient to the Law of Moses.

Well...I hope you get the idea here. I laughed to my self very hard when I read the title of this post...that it was the Pope's statement. It is very funny when you know the simplicity of the Truth.

Thanks,
Orangetom
