Is the Father of Jesus showing people what he thinks of Christmas?

Or is it my imagination?


Revelation 9:20, 21
The rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands, so that they should not worship the demons and the idols of gold and silver and copper and stone and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk;  and they did not repent of their murders nor of their spiritistic practices nor of their fornication nor of their thefts. . .

It is your imagination, yes.

What worship does God require, James?
You have read Micah, haven't you?

Why Christmas? The verse is very interesting, especially when it says "The rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the works of their hands" what denominations does not believe that we have to repent? I know it is talking about the last days and the state in which men will become, however, how have you connected it with Christmas?

God obviously changed His mind, James...
THe WTBTS was perfectly happy with Christmas for the first five decades or so of its' existance.
Now, either God was wrong - and I doubt this - or the WTBTS was not being 'a faithful and discreet slave' but was, in fact, abandoning God...


Er.......

Citations from your own religion's endorsement of Christmas, Birthdays, flags....

Oh dear, you are a Jehovah Witness. That makes you an enemy to the bornos. Who will undoubtedly see you as rich pickings for their hostilities. Be assured that you will not recieve such hostile judgement from me. I claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of my own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may. Unfortunately,  bornos think they have all the answers and that makes you wrong.

James 1:26, 27
If any man seems to himself to be a formal worshiper and yet does not bridle his tongue, but goes on deceiving his own heart, this manís form of worship is futile. The form of worship that is clean and undefiled from the standpoint of our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their tribulation, and to keep oneself without spot from the world.

What is keeping one self without spot from the world?
