Introduction to the Book Christmas



A Short Introduction


I am writing this to all who are truly interested in serving the Lord; it does not promote any particular denomination. I have included many verses from the Bible which are relevant to the topic at hand. However, the customs associated with this holiday originated outside of the Bible. Therefore, the investigation of those customs requires the consultation of other sources. I use reputable sources such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, firsthand accounts, and books written by experts in their field of study. I followed the trail of facts wherever it led; the sources of information are listed. This work is the result of countless hours of preparation and prayerful study. There is an incredible amount of misinformation about this holiday. That misinformation comes from every side. For example, some say Martin Luther invented the Christmas tree. This is not true. Others say Jews were forced to run through the streets naked at Christmas time, and the Pope laughed at them. While these events did happen, they were not connected with Christmas but another holiday at a different time of year. I wanted to get to the bottom of all of the information I had read about this holiday. I went in search of the truth. Month after month, year after year, I poured through very old as well as modern writings in an attempt to understand this holiday and how it became so intertwined with Christianity. Those who are in love with Christmas at all cost may want to skip reading this for now. Many will be offended at this message, but that is not my intent. I have written in a purely factual manner and with as much love as I could convey through the written word. We each come into certain understandings in our own time. Using the analogy from 1st Corinthians 3:2 and Hebrews 5:12, for some, these truths will be more than milk and may be meat which is impossible to digest. If this writing in any way begins to draw you away from our Creator, then put it aside, and walk in the light which has been given to you; my only hope in writing this is to help people draw closer to Christ. My hope is this writing will help those who are sincerely seeking the truth about this holiday. It surveys the Christian skin which has been draped over this holiday. It examines the skeletal remains of paganism which suspend that Christian covering. Finally, it pierces straight to the heart of the holiday to examine the true nature of the beat. Does the heart of the holiday beat in synchronicity with that of Christ and the Christian walk or something else? Those who continue to the end will see it is possible to separate the light from the dark, to hold fast to that which is good, and to reject the evil associated with the season.
