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”?
The Friday before “Easter” is celebrated in religious tradition as the day when Y’hoshua (Jesus) was crucified and placed in the tomb. The day is called “Good Friday”. It is difficult to imagine what sort of mindset would identify the day Y’hoshua was murdered as “Good.” Some claim that the term “Good” simply means “pious” or “holy” but again, what is holy or pious about the day the “Son of God” was murdered? Do you think that God considers the day his Son was killed to be Good?
Roman Catholic doctrine considers Jesus to be God incarnate. It is even more absurd to think that men not only killed God but celebrate the deed. What kind of god can be killed by his own creation? Consider what happened to those who sought to kill God at the Tower of Babel.
