God is not pleased when people copy or borrow religious customs from pagan observances and re-label them… in an attempt to worship Him.
Yet, Jesus Christ was indeed born to be a Savior. But, I wonder how much people really know about the actual events as presented in Scripture? We indeed rejoice that Jesus was born to be our King and Savior… we simply choose to honor God by not celebrating His birth with pagan myths, wrong timing, and heathen religious rituals. What I would like to do today is for all of us to take a quiz together… its open book… self-grading… and the question and answers are from a recent article I read… I enjoyed this quiz because it covers some myths we don’t usually mention in our own literature. I admit I was stumped by a few of the questions.
