"...to those on whom His favor rest." NIV Luke
Now there is something we can learn from here. I read many anxious posts here on this forum. Anxiety is clear sign that the Holy Spirit is not comfortably at rest in the heart of the believer. God's prescence in the soul echos with joy...peace....patience....steadfast courage....etc.........but NOT worry or anxiety.....Even if that worry is for the "drowning sinners" all around, we are told "let not your heart be troubled."
And also, "Let the peace of God reign in your hearts".
Christmas should be a time for personal peace with God and with each other. It's sad to see a frantic, multi-paged rant from a Christian "in-the-know". Chill out people and cheer up...Jesus the Christ is born this day!

nonsense

christ was born in the spring not the winter

xmas is a pagan winter holiday some pope stole from them and erroneously declared to be jesus birthday to help reinforce the pagan practices the rcc was instituting to help convert the heathens

andthehorse,,,says...Jesus was born in the Spring
Boyd....the reason John the Baptist feast day is at Summer solstice June 25 or so...while...Jesus birth is celebrated at Winter solstice...Dec. 25........is because the Sunlight increases each day after Christ's birth...while...John's Feast day sees decreasing daylight hours........All of it based on the famous testimony of John the Baptist: "He must increase while I must decrease"

Sir Pugsly says:
"and who are those people"........Well....horse....I was one of the most anxious and worried Christians I can think of. I even wrote a 250 page book on the collapse of Western civilization...to warn Christians before we ruined America. Now, I see that it was wrong for me to worry so much. God, raises up people well in advance of trouble, or as ruin hits...to tell His people why it occurred....but there is no need to stress. I lean that load on the Lord...and trust God to see us through.

Sir Pugsly says:
horse..."50-150" years
Boyd.....If Leftism is now fully in control in US government...(the way it is in places like CA or NY city or Chicago)........then I would go with 15-50 years for the structural collapse and 50-150 for the name to disappear.
The world will become---is becoming---quite unstable as the "world police" (US) smoke the metaphorical doobie of Leftist pacifism, political and personal narcisism (sp?) leading to voting ourselves goodies on expired credit.

Pagans did not create the seasons. Creation should be used to honor our Creator - not to superstitiously believe the pagans had them first.

Sir Pugsly says:
Faith....Boyd says it is not "superstitious" to recognize that the Church chose the Winter solstice to honor how "the Light came into the world"...and, at the same time, flipped some pagan traditions for Christian usage. There is nothing wrong with converting pagans or pagan practices for Christ Jesus our Lord. The same "flip" occurred when Christians began celebrating Easter in the Spring.

What is seriously wrong, however, is for modern day athiests or pagans to claim Christmas and Easter celebrations are ideological continuations of paganism...after Christians converted some practices for our own use.

for one: those who constantly harp about the end of the earth/Christ returning soon/signs of the times.

RKG says:
based on this, the Holy Spirit has done nothing for you.

leftism and rightism are the death knell of any society. any ism is the death knell of any society.
