Many conservative homeschooling Christian families have read Internet articles asserting that Christmas is a pagan holiday and should not be celebrated. Christian ministries have produced DVDs on the subject. However, most of these trace their information to a pamphlet published in the 1700s. But what did the early church fathers think about the holiday? What was the REAL origin of the Christmas tree (not the one reported in that pamphlet)? And what is the biblical attitude we should have toward things that might seem entirely secular? Richard begins a series of lessons on "How Pagan is Christmas?" with taking a look at how the Apostle Paul appropriated and then redeemed the culture around him. He also show that there are only 2 biblically correct positions regarding the celebration of a holiday: (1) Either observe the holiday in a way that gives glory to Jesus; or (2) do not observe it at all. However, some Christians today err in choosing an unbiblical third alternative--to celebrate it strictly as a secular holiday. Richard shows from Scripture why this is not an alternative for Bible-believing Christians. Before ou make up your mind about whether Christmas -- or a Christmas tradition in particular -- is pagan, listen to this entire series. Then seek the leadership of the Holy Spirit in how you and your family should celebrate!
