The Federal Reserve System – Part 2

Last year at this time I wrote, the Federal Reserve System – Part 1 citing the 104th anniversary of the Federal Reserve Bank. December 23rd will mark one hundred and five years since the robber barons brought this system into law during the Christmas vacation of the United States Senate. President Woodrow Wilson signed it. Since that time American debt has gone up exponentially!

O Christmas Tree, Idolatree

Most people probably wouldn’t associate a Christmas Tree with idolatry. But God’s Word commands against this ancient custom of vanity and idolatry.

“The modern Christmas tree is frequently traced to the symbolism of trees in pre-Christian winter rites, wherein Viking and Saxon worshiped trees.”  BBC Religion and Ethics

Traditions Make Void the Word of God

The Christmas Tree, advent calendar, Christmas stocking, the mistletoe and candle light services are all traditions followed as a way of celebrating the Christmas Holiday.  God’s Word warns that traditions make void the Word of God, therefore, you should stop and ask yourself, “Is God referring to any of my traditions?”  How exactly do traditions make the Word of God “void”?

Santa Claus is coming to town so hide your children

Pedo-Santa
Santa Claus or pedophile?

“Santa Claus is Coming to Town” was first sung on Eddie Cantor’s radio show in 1934 and is the third most popular Christmas song of all time.  Jolly old Saint Nick or Santa Claus was an Orthodox Catholic Priest in the 3rd century and due to his habit of secret gift giving he became the patron saint of children among other things.  When you consider that the Catholic Church is the most pedophilic organization to ever exist, the words to this song are downright scary.  How would you feel if a pedophile was saying these things to your child?

Santa Claus is Coming to town

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

 

Christmas Violates Commands of God

Christmas, December 25th, is celebrated as the day Jesus was born.  How did this come to be?  Is this celebration a violation of God’s Commands?

Scholars have filled many books with arguments as to when Jesus was born.  Nowhere in Scripture is any significance given to a person’s date of birth.  It was not until the third century that the festival of Christmas was heard of.  It did not gain observers until well into the fourth century.  The first recorded “Christian” Christmas celebration on December 25th was in Rome in 336AD.  However, by this time, most other religions in the empire were already celebrating the birth of their gods on December 25th.  They had been doing so for centuries.

What is idolatry?

What exactly is idolatry?  This probably seems like an odd question.  In scripture, the subject of idolatry is one of the most covered topics.  The question, however, is not whether God commands against idolatry, which He most assuredly does, but what is it?  The argument has been made that when praying to an image or a statue, it is not idolatry as long as it’s done in reverence to the person or “saint” the image represents, and as long as you do it in the worship of and love for God.

In Ex 20 (the Ten Commandments) God commands against worshiping “graven images or any likeness” stating,

“You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them” Exodus 20:5

God is so adamant about this that it takes three verses to cover this one commandment.  He refers to the idolaters as “them that hate Me.”

Do any of these men hate God?

Webster defines idolatry as “the worship of a physical object as a god.”  This is a very simple and concise definition, but it does not cover the full scope.  What about the worship of God through a physical object?  Does God appreciate your worship even if it comes through a statue or a painting or a “holy” wall or a big black box?  As long as you are worshiping God why does it matter how you do it?
