Christ Ahnsahnghong DID NOT Keep Christmas

At this time, and even earlier, people are preparing for what is known as the "most wonderdul time of the year." Even just with that quote, you know what I'm referring to - X-mas. If people REALLY knew where and how this "holiday" originated, even non-Christians would have nothing to do with this day. I received the following info from a site created by a person WHO IS NOT EVEN CHRISTAN! (How embarrassing!) {I did paraphrase}

[X-mas began in Iran about 4000 years ago in the worship of Mithra. They believed Mithra as the god of light and used the sun to symbolize their god. In 539 BC, the Greeks defeated the Persians and adopted their enemy's religion as the official religion of Greece, as well as the predominant of Europe. The Romans also celebrated their sun god during the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, and kept it as the rebirth of the sun god (as the days grew longer and longer.)
The winter holiday became known as Saturnalia and began the week just before December 25th and usually lasted until Jan. 6. When Constantine (you know the Roman emperor who "converted" to Christianity to enlarge his territory) ruled in Rome, he mixed his "previous" religion as sun worship with the ever-growing popular Christianity. At this time, he incorporated the belief that the sun god was reborn from the winter solstice into the scriptural event that Jesus died and resurrected 3 days later. (Hey, it's still the birth of the son, right?) ]

by definiton on page 537 of the Catholic Encyclopedia, it says,

"In the Christian law, the supreme sacrifice is that of the Mass." It goes on to say, "The supreme act of worship consists essentially in an offering of a worthy victim to God, the offering made by a proper person, as a priest, the destruction of the victim."

Victim" of the Mass! The Latin word for victim is "Hostia" from which the word "host" is derived. The Mass, by definition, is a sacrifice involving a victim. There is no other meaning for the word "Mass" or "Christ-Mass." Now put the word "Merry" in front of it. The Mass is the death sacrifice, and the "Host" is the victim. This is official Roman Catholic doctrine, and "Christmas" is a word that they invented.
How is the bleeding death of Christ, Our Father, happy? In the sense that the holiday makes it, x-mas is the most wonderful time of the year?!

This is why we must know what we are doing. God already warned:

Hos. 4:6 "
my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge..."

Not only the knowledge of what NOT to do, but also the knowledge of WHAT TO DO. We must keep God's true commandments, the feasts of God. (Lev. 23:1-44, Matt. 26:17-26, Luke 22:7-20, Acts 2:1-4, 21:1-8, John 7:2,14,37-39, John 13:15, 1Cor. 11:1)

Yes. If we are love of Jesus, we have to follow what He says. Christmas is not His word. I want to follow only God's truths. God bless you. :)
