Pagan Roots of Christmas
Pagan Roots of Christmas

Should Christians today celebrate this ancient festival? Many today may think it is all right, but the opinions of men are not our standard or authority. What does the Word of YEHOVAH God itself say about this matter? It is a very serious question. Is it all right in the sight of YEHOVAH for men to take pagan customs and traditions, and to observe them, calling them “Christian”? Is it all right to merge and combine PAGAN practices with the truth of YEHOVAH God?

According to the prophet Malachi, YEHOVAH does not change (Malachi 3:8). His laws and commandments are eternal (Psalm 111:7-8). Does YEHOVAH say it is all right to observe the traditions and customs of the pagans?

YEHOVAH God commanded ancient Israel, “I am the Lord your God. You must NOT DO AS THEY DO IN EGYPT, where you used to live, and you must NOT DO AS THEY DO IN THE LAND OF CANAAN, where I am bringing you. DO NOT FOLLOW THEIR PRACTICES. You must obey my laws, and be careful to follow my decrees” (Leviticus 18:2-4).

YEHOVAH God hates idolatry! He detests it with vehement passion. He tells us, “…Be careful not to be ensnared by inquiring about their gods, saying, ‘How do these nations serve their gods? We will do the same.’ YOU must NOT WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD IN THEIR WAY, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of DETESTABLE THINGS the LORD HATES” (Deuteronomy 12:29-31).

Because of pagan idolatrous practices, YEHOVAH God cast the Canaanites out of the Promised Land. They were worshippers of Baal, or Nimrod, Tammuz, the sun god, the pagan Messiah, the god of wine and revelry. They worshipped the evergreen tree, and used it as a symbol of their god. They observed December 25, in worship of the waning sun, and their sun-god divinity. This whole religious system stemmed from ancient Babylon, the fount of all heresy and apostasy.

Their sensuality and gross lasciviousness was particularly displayed during the mid-winter festival, called the Saturnalia in Rome, with gift-giving, drunkenness, and sexual licentiousness. YEHOVAH says of such Bacchanalial rites,

“Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. Even the land was defiled, so I punished it for its sin, and the land VOMITED out its inhabitants….Anyone who does any of these DETESTABLE THINGS — such persons must be cut off from their people. Keep my requirements and do NOT follow ANY OF THE DETESTABLE CUSTOMS that were practiced before you came and do not defile yourselves with them. I am the LORD your God” (Leviticus 18:24-30).

Even such idolatrous items as the “Christmas tree” are condemned in the Word of YEHOVAH God! Jeremiah the prophet wrote,

“Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord, LEARN NOT THE WAY OF THE HEATHEN, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them [such as the waning sun at the winter solstice!]. For the CUSTOMS of the people are VAIN [empty, useless, worthless]: for one CUTTETH A TREE out of the FOREST, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. They DECK IT WITH SILVER AND WITH GOLD; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good” (Jeremiah 10:1-5).

Truly, the whole world has been deceived by Satan the devil and his clever masquerades and machinations (Revelation 12:9). YEHOVAH God Almighty thunders: “Wherefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye POLLUTED after the manner of your fathers? and commit ye WHOREDOM after the manner of THEIR ABOMINATIONS?…ye POLLUTE yourselves with all your IDOLS, even unto this day….But as for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD: Go ye, serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but POLLUTE YE MY HOLY NAME NO MORE with your gifts, and with your idols” (Ezekiel 20:30-39).

The very name “Christmas,” combining the holy name of Christ with the pagan mass, POLLUTES and PROFANES YEHOVAH’s holy Name! The celebration of these ancient pagan festivals, calling them “Christian,” is an abomination in the sight of YEHOVAH God! YEHOVAH will not accept such pagan, superstitious worship!

Yeshua the Messiah said to his disciples, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will KNOW THE TRUTH, and the truth will set you FREE” — free from the shackles of error, superstition, mythology, and pagan deception! (John 8:32, NIV).

Christmas is pagan. There is no doubt about it. The question is: What are you going to do about it? May YEHOVAH God help you to make the right decision, so you can inherit eternal life, and reign with the saints forever (Revelation 2:26-27; 5:10; 20:4).

“Ye HYPOCRITES, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, ‘This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouths, and honoreth me with their lips; but THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME. But IN VAIN do they WORSHIP me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of MEN” (Matthew 15:7-9).

“Howbeit IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, teaching for doctrines THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye HOLD THE TRADITION OF MEN…” (Mark 7:7-8).

History of Rome, by Michael Grant, we read this startling revelation:

“Yet there was also another pagan belief during this same epoch, that much more nearly competed with Christ for the control of the Western world. This was the cult of the Sun, which was revered by millions of the inhabitants of the Roman Empire, and its religion for a time even became the state worship….

“In Rome, the divinity of the Sun came very early on; and then, centuries afterwards, in the superb dome of Hadrian’s Pantheon, the central opening, surrounded by star-like rosettes, represented the solar orb….Before long, the emperor Aurelian established a massive temple of the Unconquerable Sun as the central and focal point of the entire religious system of the state (274). The birthday of the god was to be on DECEMBER 25, AND THIS, TRANSFORMED INTO CHRISTMAS DAY, WAS ONE OF THE HERITAGES THAT CHRISTIANITY OWED TO HIS CULT”

a book by historian Jack Finegan, Myth & Mystery: An Introduction to the Pagan Religions of the Biblical World. Finegan writes:

“…But the worship of the sun-god continued widely throughout the empire, and under Aurelian (A.D. 270-275) the cult was restored to its former high estate. In the year 274 Aurelian declared the god — now called Deus Sol Invictus — the official deity of the Roman Empire; he built a splendid temple of the sun in Rome…and set the sun’s birthday celebration (naturalis solis invicti) ON DECEMBER 25, the date then accepted for the winter solstice (also in his solar character the BIRTHDAY OF MITHRAS). In the time of Constantine the cult of Deus Sol Invictus was still at its height, and the portrait of the sun-god was on the coins of Constantine….Likewise it must have been in this time and with the intent to transform the significance of AN EXISTING SACRED DATE that the birthday of Jesus, which had been celebrated in the East on January 6…was placed in Rome ON DECEMBER 25, THE DATE OF THE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION OF SOL INVICTUS. This date appears in a list of dates probably compiled in A.D. 336 and published in the Roman city calendar, edited by Filocalus, for the year 354” (Finegan, p. 211-212, emphasis mine).

But Jesse Hurlbut laments the results of Constantine’s making Christianity the state religion, free from all persecution. From that time, he points out, the church became totally subverted by politics and self-seeking opportunists.

“…the establishment of Christianity as the state religion became a CURSE.

“Everybody sought membership in the church, and nearly everybody was received. Both good and bad, sincere seekers after God and hypocritical seekers after gain, rushed into the communion. Ambitious, worldly, unscrupulous men sought office in the church for social and political influence….

‘The services of worship increased in splendor, but were less spiritual and hearty than those of former times. The forms and ceremonies of PAGANISM GRADUALLY CREPT INTO THE WORSHIP. Some of the OLD HEATHEN FEASTS BECAME CHURCH FESTIVALS WITH CHANGE OF NAME AND OF WORSHIP” (Hurlbut, The Story of the Christian Church, p. 79).

it is a watered down Christianity that barely resembles its former self. Blended with poisoning deceptions. What happens to water when you add even a drop of serpent’s poison?

Will Durant, renowned historian, in his massive work The Story of Civilization, wrote in volume III, entitled Caesar and Christ, that in the new “church” that developed in the Roman Empire, the Jewishness of Yeshua was lost or rejected, and replaced with Greek philosophy and thought; the “Law” of the Jews was rejected, and, he writes,

“…the god Christ was assimilated to the religious and philosophical traditions of the Hellenistic mind. Now the PAGAN WORLD — even the anti-Semitic world — could accept him as its own.

“CHRISTIANITY DID NOT DESTROY PAGANISM; IT ADOPTED IT. The Greek mind, dying, came to a transmigrated life in the theology and liturgy of the Church…the Greek mysteries passed down into the impressive mystery of the Mass. Other PAGAN cultures contributed to the syncrestic result. From Egypt came the idea of a divine trinity…from Egypt the adoration of the Mother and Child…From Phrygia came the worship of the Great Mother….The Mithraic ritual so closely resembled the eucharistic sacrifice of the Mass that Christian fathers charged the Devil with inventing these similarities to mislead frail minds. Christianity was the last great creation of the ancient PAGAN world” (p. 595).

Do followers of Christ need to whore themselves out to recruit pagans?

H. G. Wells, in his Outline of History, discusses the transformation of the teachings of the Messiah into the pagan worship of the heathen, calling itself “Christian.” He notes:

“The observance of the Jewish Sabbath, again, TRANSFERRED TO THE MITHRAIC SUN-DAY, is an important feature of many Christian cults…He [Jesus] did not say a word about the worship of his mother Mary in the guise of ISIS, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN. Much that is most characteristically Christian [so-called] in worship and usage, he ignored. Skeptical writers have had the temerity to deny that Jesus can be called a Christian at all”

https://www.hope-of-israel.org/cmas1.htm

“Indeed, it is admitted by the most learned and candid writers of all parties that the day of our Lord’s birth cannot be determined, and that within the Christian Church no such festival as Christmas was ever heard of till the third century, and that not till the fourth century was far advanced did it gain much observance. How, then, did the Romish Church fix on December the 25th as Christmas-day? Why, thus: Long before the fourth century, and long before the Christian era itself, a festival was celebrated among the heathen, at that precise time of the year, in honour of the birth of the son of the Babylonian queen of heaven; and it may fairly be presumed that, in order to conciliate the heathen, and to swell the number of the nominal adherents of Christianity, the SAME FESTIVAL WAS ADOPTED by the Roman Church, giving it only the name of Christ. This tendency on the part of Christians to MEET PAGANISM HALF-WAY was very early developed….Upright men strove to stem the tide, but in spite of all their efforts, the apostasy went on, till the Church, with the exception of a small remnant, was submerged under Pagan superstition” ”

Christ’s First Followers – REFUSED to Celebrate December 25th

“On your day of gladness, we [Christians] neither cover
our doorposts with wreaths, nor intrude upon the day with lamps.
At the call of public festivity, you consider it a proper thing
to decorate your house like some new brothel.
We are accused of a lower sacrilege because
we do not celebrate along with you the holidays …”
– (Tertullian, (A.D. 155-220), 2001, p. 1176).
(quoted by David Bercot, A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs,
1998, p. 342).

The “Nimrod” Tree
“NIMROD” – The LORD of Christmas

“Nimrod started the great organized worldly apostasy
from God that has dominated this world until now.
Nimrod married his own mother, whose name was Semiramis.
After Nimrod’s death, his so-called mother-wife,
Semiramis, propagated the evil doctrine of the survival
of Nimrod as a spirit being. She claimed a full-grown
evergreen tree sprang overnight from a dead tree stump,
which symbolized the springing forth unto new life
of the dead Nimrod. On each anniversary of his birth,
she claimed, Nimrod would visit the evergreen tree
and leave gifts upon it. December 25th, was the birthday
of Nimrod. This is the real origin of the Christmas tree.”
-The Plain Truth About Christmas
by David J. Stewart | December 24th, 2005

“Traditionally, a yule log was burned in the fireplace
on Christmas Eve and during the night as the log’s embers
died, there appeared in the room, as if by magic, a
Christmas tree surrounded by gifts. The yule log
represented the sun-god Nimrod and the Christmas tree
represented himself resurrected as his own son Tammuz.”
–After Armageddon -Chapter 4
Where do we get our ideas?
by John A. Sarkett

“So our Christmas tree — and our yule log — have
tremendous meaning, but not a Christian meaning.
The yule log is the dead Nimrod, human ruler of
ancient Babylon, who was eventually deified as the
sun incarnate, and hence a god. The Christmas tree
is mystical Tammuz, the slain god come to life again.”
–After Armageddon -Chapter 4
Where do we get our ideas?
by John A. Sarkett

The Real Origin of Christmas

“The real origin of Christmas goes back to ancient
Babylon. It is bound up in the organized apostasy
with which Satan has gripped a deceived world these
many centuries! In Egypt, it was always believed that
the son of Iris (Egyptian name for “Queen of Heaven”)
was born December 25th. Semiramis also bore the title
“Queen of Heaven” – and she was Nimrod’s mother.
Paganism celebrated this famous birthday over most
of the known world for centuries before the birth
of Christ.”
-The Plain Truth About Christmas
by David J. Stewart | December 24th, 2005

“Christmas as a pagan holiday traces back
thousands of years before to a man named Nimrod,
founder of ancient pagan Babylon.”
-Christmas Unwrapped

“December 25 was highly honored and recognized
by Nimrod’s supporters…Many centuries later
this pagan custom was “Christianized” as being
the birthday of Christ.”

“December 25th was celebrated as
Nimrod’s birthday. Generally, all mankind
is fast asleep, dreaming this old Babylonian dream.”
-The Story Of Nimrod,
As It Relates To Christmas And Easter
by Wilhelm J Wolfaardt

A Deception of Satan

“Jesus Christ was NOT born on December 25.
But December 25th can be traced back to Genesis
and a man named Nimrod. Nimrod was the founder
of a great false religious system that began in
ancient Babylon that has always opposed the truths
of God. It’s time we face facts! This world is deceived,
just as God prophesied it would be (Rev. 12:9).
Satan is the power behind this deception.
Satan has successfully pawned off the old customs
of the Babylonian mystery religion as being pleasing
to Jesus Christ.”

article in; The Trumpet

A Corruption Against Jehovah God

“As the people increased in number,
the Way of Jehovah was corrupted
and a principal figure in those days was Nimrod,
the grandson of Ham described as a mighty hunter
before Jehovah.  The word ‘before’ used in this
sense means, ‘totally antagonistic to Jehovah.’
We celebrate Christmas on a date which coincides
with the birthday of Nimrod – the villainous king
of ancient Babylon.”

‘NARROW IS THE WAY’
By Harry Lancaster
“Nimrod, who built Babel or Babylon, conceived a
one world government model in rebellion against
Jehovah-God and went about to establish a one world
government in the land of Shinar (which is today
known as Iraq) and institute a pagan worship system
that rejected the Lord God Jehovah.”

“Not only has the original Babylonian religious system
served as the source of all the world’s non-Christian
religions, hut it has also infiltrated and corrupted
Christendom to an alarming degree.”
–Babylon – Source of False Religion
“Babylon, Mystery Religion” by Ralph Woodrow
“Nimrod was a great grandson of Noah.
Nimrod became a “mighty tyrant in the face of Jehovah.”
Much of the Babylonian worship was carried on through
mysterious symbols – thus the “Mystery” religion.
This system of idolatry spread from Babylon to the
nations, for it was from this location that men were
scattered over the face of the earth (Gen. 11:9).
As they went from Babylon, they took their occult
worship and its various mystery symbols with them.”
–Babylon – Source of False Religion
“Babylon, Mystery Religion” by Ralph Woodrow
Nimrod and – His Mother – Semiramis
were the —  “MODELS”  —
after which Satan Fashioned
all other False gods and goddesses
“Thus from Babylon emerged the entire complex of
human “religion”.  the various gods and goddesses
of Rome, Greece, India, Egypt, and other nations
can be identified with corresponding gods from Babel.”

Christendom is Tied to False gods
Christendom will not admit, that by compromising with the pagans of
the world when adopting December 25th as Christ’s birthday – they have
tied themselves into honoring all the pagan gods of the world.How so ?
Almost all the pagan gods – who are nothing more than “Nimrod” reincarnated,
all claim December 25th as their birthday.  The list is exhaustive.Many False Gods – Whose Birthday was “December 25”
Fashioned After “NIMROD”

“December 25th – not only was Mithra, the sun-god of
Mithraism, said to be born at this time of the year,
but Osiris, Horus, Hercules, Bacchus, Adonis, Jupiter,
Tammuzand other sun-gods were also supposedly born
at what is today called the “Christmas” season, the winter solstice!
– Doane, p.474;
– “The Two Babylons; Alexander Hislop, p.93.

“The “winter solstice (December) was the time at which all the
sun-gods
 “from Osiris to Jupiter” and Mithra had celebrated
their (birth
days) –  the celebration being adorned with
the pine tree of Adonis, the holly of Saturn, and the
mistletoe
 (of the pagan Druids)…..tapers(candles) represented
the kindling of the newborn sun-god’s fire…”

And they live still in the festivals of Christianity.”

In Sharp Contrast to Jesus

And here we have Jesus Christ who was born in a warm month when the
flocks were still outdoors at night – as ample proof that a compromise has been
made.   December 25th was celebrated by the pagans in Christ’s day, but
he and his early followers would have NO PART of it.

It is evident that Jesus was NOT born during the middle of winter,
for at the time of his birth, the shepherds were living out in the fields
with their flocks. As the bible says: ‘There were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night”
(Luke 2:8). As is well known, the shepherds in Palestine do NOT
“abide in the fields” during the winter season because of the extreme,
cold temperatures. The shepherds always bring their flocks in
from the mountain slopes and fields no later than October 15th! “

William F. Dankenbring and John D. Keyser

“The wicked apostate Church fornicated spiritually
with the heathen, pagan religions of the world,

as the “birth-day” of Jesus the Messiah,
who was born nowhere NEAR that time of year!”

“Christmas…was not instituted by Christ
or the apostles, nor by Bible authority.
It was picked up afterward from paganism.”
-Encyclopedia Britannica, 1946 edition
“…the whoredoms of all perverted Christian
religionists are still in essence the same old harlotry
which first found place and embodiment on the banks of
the Euphrates. It is the same old Babylon, and her harlot
daughters, bearing rule or kingdom upon the dominions of
the earth, and intoxicating the inhabitants thereof
out of the wine of her fornication. True religion and
an uncorrupted Church have never suited the
representatives of power, or pleased them long.”
– THE WINE OF OLD BABYLON
Excerpt from ‘The Apocalypse’ by J. A. Seiss
“The wine of old Babylon’s fornication was a debauching
system of idol worship and carnal self-exaltation, over
and against the revelations and institutes of Jehovah.
It was already bottled and labelled before the first
dispersion (Confusion of Tongues at the Tower of Babel).
It went with that dispersion into every country and nation
under heaven. As a matter of fact, we find it to this day
among all the nations of the earth, affecting and controlling
their thinking, their policies, their faith, and their worship.
Not less than two-thirds of the population of the earth
at this hour are Pagan idolaters, drivelling under the same
old intoxication which came forth from Nimrod and Babylon.”
– THE WINE OF OLD BABYLON
Excerpt from ‘The Apocalypse’ by J. A. Seiss

“It was by departure from the LORD,

‘The woman, which is the great city, called Babylon,

THE PERSONAL MESSAGE OF CHRISTMAS

by Charles Spurgeon

“We have no superstitious regard for times and seasons. Certainly we do not believe in the present ecclesiastical arrangement called Christmas. First, because we do not believe in any mass at all, but abhor it whether it be sung in Latin or in English. Secondly, because we find no Scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Saviour; and consequently, it’s observance is a superstition, because not of divine authority. Superstition has fixed most positively the day of our Saviour’s birth, although there is no possibility of discovering when it occurred. It was not till the middle of the third century that any part of the Church celebrated the birth of our Lord; and it was not till long after the western Church had set the example, that the eastern adopted it. Because the day is not known, probably the fact is that the “holy” days were arranged to fit in with the heathen festivals. We venture to assert that if there be any day in the year of which we may be pretty sure that it was not the day on which our Saviour was born, it is the 25th of December. Regarding not the day, let us give God thanks for the gift of His dear Son.

How absurd to think we could do it in the spirit of the world, with a Jack Frost clown, a deceptive worldly Santa Claus, and a mixed program of sacred truth with fun, deception and fiction. If it be possible to honor Christ in the giving of gifts, I cannot see how while the gift, giver, and recipient are all in the spirit of the world. The Catholics and high Church Episcopalians may have their Christmas one day in 365, but we have a Christ gift the entire year.” (Dec. 24, 1871)

“Upright men strove to stem the tide, but in spite of all their efforts, the apostasy went on, till the Church, with the exception of a small remnant, was submerged under pagan superstition. that Christmas is a pagan festival, is beyond all doubt. The time of the year, and the ceremonies with which it is celebrated, prove its origin.”

“Those who follow the custom of observing Christmas, follow not the Bible but pagan ceremonies.”
