    I remember when people were outraged with Starbucks taking Christmas decorations off their cups.

    Atheists have made attempts at Christmas, trying to secularize it, but then again Christians don't make it too difficult for them

    They're going to have their hay day soon. They'll be kinda bummed about having taken that mark (Re 9:6).

    Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ. See the word "Christ"? Who cares what the world tries to do to it. Christ is still preached regardless of the naysayers.

    Well, we could always let the world have Christmas, and celebrate Jesus birth during the Feast of Tabernacles, where it makes more sense and more likely actually happened.

    Maranatha!

    Nah ... we don't know when Jesus was born. Besides, the Jewish people would not be flocking to their hometowns in complete disregard for the Law of Moses just because of an edict by Augustus. It is more likely the Jews would have revolted, not been compliant. The Feast of Tabernacles was one the three required feasts for all males to go up to Jerusalem.

    I don't think all the commotion/negataive press about Jesus' birth being celebrated on Dec 25 is worth the effort. It's the day chosen for the birthday party. Live with it

    It was just a thought.

    We do have some pretty good clues in the Gospel of Luke. Jesus was conceived while Elizabeth was six months pregnant with John. That puts his birth about 15 months from John's conception. Since John was conceived shortly after Zacharias was serving in the temple, and historical evidence says his order served in the 4th month, that puts Jesus birth somewhere in the 7th month, where all the fall feasts are.

    Yeah, I know it's not concrete proof, but I did say "likely", and it makes sense to celebrate the Son of God taking on flesh and tabernacling with us during the feast of tabernacles. We still celebrate Christmas at our house, so we get to celebrate our Saviors birth twice a year!

    Still and all, it might not be such a bad thing if the cultural holiday were separated from the faith holiday. It might help some believers who are confused about being in, but not of, the world.
    Maranatha!

    Naysayers can't gainsay (Lk 21:15).

    I need a little help. There're a lot of archived videos after I followed that link. Anything in particular I should start with? Or even better, text to read. I'm a little impatient with video, since I can absorb a lot faster from reading, and time is short.

    The latest. No reason to go backward. He likes his graphs.

    Do you have a smart phone? I'd recommend the StarWalk app, too.
