Sincerely, when I see my fellow Christian ignorantly celebrating Christmas on 25th December, I donâ€™t know whether to clap for him or slap him. Like I always say, I am not a Seventh Day Adventist faithful but I really admire their way of worship. I always have a premonition that they are right in their way of worship. For instance they donâ€™t countenance the fact that Jesus Christ was born in 25th December. Having perused my Holy Bible, I totally agree with them because I havenâ€™t come across any verse that confirms the birthing of the Messiah to be December 25th.
Christians have Bibles but they donâ€™t read them accordingly. Jesus Christ was never birthed on 25th December as you are made to believe. There is no fundamentality in this lie.
The Bible says categorically in Luke 1:26-38, 26 in the â€œSIXTHâ€ (6th) month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virginâ€™s name was Mary.28The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
Immediately after, the same angel appeared to Gabriel and advised him not to reject Mary after realizing she was carrying the pregnancy which he was not responsible for. Now if you calculate very clearly, and given the fact that Christ was born to this world just like any other human being, youâ€™ll realize that his birthday was not the one being celebrated today. Theologians where are you??
So, next time think twice before you with me a Merry Christmas
