As we are nearing Christmas time and all of the celebrations that people are involved in with this time of year, it is always interesting to me to see the differences in how and what people celebrate. Since we are never commanded to celebrate Christ's birth (only his death) we should allow others their liberty in Christ to celebrate a day or not to celebrate as they see fit as long as they do not violate any of God's other commands in the process(Romans 14:4-6). One of the most ironic and hypocritical things that I have ever noticed will occur again this year all over this country since Christmas day is on Sunday this year. Many "Christian" people talk about how Christmas is a celebration of Jesus' birth and that is what they are supposedly celebrating on December 25th. So how will many of these individuals celebrate "Jesus' Birthday"? By giving Him gifts? By singing Him songs? By teaching others about Him? No the vast majority of people who believe they are celebrating Jesus' birth will do so by skipping church and not worshiping Him so that they can have more time for themselves and their family to feast and give each other presents. What a way to say happy birthday!
