The Truth About Christmas

OFG The Truth About Christmas

Thus saith יְהוִֹה, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 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 10:2-5 (AV)

In this post we are going to expose the true pagan origins of Christmas and provide the reader with biblical revelation concerning the true spirit of the festive season.

In this post we are going to briefly explore the excellency of divine grace in terms of its absolute necessity to salvation and biblical immutability.
