There is a very good reason why He said that the way which leads to His Truth is very narrow and “few that be that find it.” The Truth is not popular, it does not sell much in the way of the world’s products, and it doesn’t tickle the ears.
He was not born at Xmas, nor in the dead of winter at all. Scripture makes this clear repeatedly, through multiple witnesses, to those with “eyes to see”.
There is a reason why the Adversary, and his commercialized minions and symbols — from ‘yule logs’ to ‘Satan Claws’ — have so been able to “wrest” such a false ‘holy-day’: it was never His to begin with. Read Jeremiah 10:1-10, and the many other warnings in places like Deuteronomy 7:25-26, the story of Ezekiel 8 and 9, and most of Deuteronomy chapter 12 and 13. And any encyclopedia will tell you whose birthday falls just after the winter solstice, and where each of the legion of pagan customs originated.
And the issue is NOT simply that He was not, and indeed could NOT have been born in December*, much less on the winter solstice on the same supposed day as Mithra. The problem is that He clearly says NOT to do such things, much less claim that they please Him in any way.
If He is in fact the Master, and we desire to be told “well done, good and faithful servant,” why do we so often persist in IGNORING what He says we SHOULD do, and keeping the Appointed Times He specified that we were to “keep forever“, while instead doing things He says are abomination to Him, and calling those pagan celebrations “holy-days”?
For those who know the Truth but can’t understand why He would take no delight in having His Word perverted, take a listen to a cute, simple example:
How would YOU feel about it?
And why do you think what has happened to “Christ-Mass” is so easy to explain?
* A bit of Bible research, associated with the birth of John/Yahuchanon “the Baptiser” supports the belief that the Messiah was actually born in the fall, almost certainly during the Feast of Sukkot (aka “Tabernacles”) — where all of His people traveled to Jerusalem, and stayed in a “suka” (a word coincidentally often translated into Olde English as “manger”).
