By your reply about children, and since I am the only one posting about children to my knowledge, I am going to assume that your posting is in reference to my posting. I will reply in order of their postings. If I am wrong in assuming it was about my post, please correct me. :-)
Who said anything about lies? If you think that celebrating Christmas is a lie, then don't do it. In our home, it is all about Jesus. Our children are taught the truth about Jesus everyday, including Dec. 25th. If we choose to celebrate His birth on the 25th, so be it, it is not a sin, just as it would not be a sin to celebrate His birth on August 3rd.
Who said anything about the apostles teaching Christmas? But you know what they did teach? They taught... (edit* Paul taught*)
Romans 14:5-10, "One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives God thanks. For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lords. For to this end Christ died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ."
Who said anything about santa? You know what the kids beleive about santa?, that He is not real and a lie made up by the world. They know that the devil tries to lie to the world and make take the glory from Jesus.
Brother, your idea on when Jesus was born is speculation. There is no concrete evidence when He was born, but only that He WAS born.
Thank you for the blessing. We teach our children the truth along with celebrating Jesus 365 days a year including Christmas. 366 on leap years.
