The answer is: No. It is not. The proof is in all the history behind it. This history is available to anyone who is interested in knowing the origins of this empty ritual that many “Christian” churches celebrate today to the gratification of the world’s economy.
This secular history indicates that the celebration of Christmas was foreign to the first Christians. It was not until the third century when Constantin made Christianity (a pseudo-Christianity of his own making) the official religion of the Roman Empire, that this ritual was introduced in the churches of the time.
The Bible does not allow for celebrations of Christ’s birth. There is no one place in God’s Word where the birthday of any saint was celebrated. We find wedding feasts and dedications of temples and houses, like in Psalm 30, but there is no mention of anyone’s birthday with the exception of the wicked, pagan King Herod in Mark 6:21, where we learn of the demised of John the Baptist.
In the book of Ecclesiastes 7:1 says, “A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.” In other words, the day of birth is not better, because we all are born into this kingdom of darkness and into an evil world ruled by evil men.
Christmas celebrations belong in the evil world we have to live in. It is, and since 1870 always has been, a commercial holiday with the sole purpose of enticing the ignorant masses to worship the king of darkness: Satan. It is so unfortunate that today’s Christian kids are not taught to separate from the world. On the contrary, they are deceived by “well-intentioned” parents to believe in idols like Santa and elves that appear and disappear and to accept these behaviors as innocuous.
God does not look on this with indifference as many “Christians” pretend. He very clearly states that if we love the world, the Love of the Father is not in us. If we are friends of the world and the worldly system of religion, we make ourselves enemies of the True God. We cannot serve two masters.
Christmas is a worldly holiday as all other religious holidays are. Christmas was born out of the heart of wicked, evil men devoid of the Spirit of God. They made it a tradition within the so-called Christian churches, but God also warns His people about it, “Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition.” Mark 7:9. Judge yourselves if it is lawful to obey men rather than God.
In conclusion, Christmas is NOT Christian. We are not called to be part of the world, but to separate from it, and we should teach our children to do so. We worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth. There is no room for decorations, rituals, and gifts in our worship. Our worship is a sacrifice that honors and gives thanks to God. As Hebrews 13:15 reminds us, “By him, therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
