y uncle Daniel has said, of the Rivas family, that we like to argue; that it's in our blood. I can affirm that his statement is true, for me, anyway. However, I don't like to argue for the sake of arguing; I have reason, a purpose for when I make an argument, and that reason and purpose is to get to the truth of the matter. And the truth of the matter that I wish to argue here is the real reason for this holiday season.
The Winter Solstice
From the Tower of Babel, the earliest recorded pagan civilization, let's fast forward thousands of years to the ancient celebration of Saturnalia, held in Rome, as a feast day dedicated to the false god Saturn (Kronos in Greek), who we know as Father Time in the West. When did this feast day occur? You'll never guess! Originally, it started on Dec. 17th and ended two days later! See what you can learn when you ask questions and seek the answers? Over time the idolatrous revelry, which included feasting, fornication, drunkenness, singing in the streets naked, and a human sacrifice, was extended to twelve days, which incorporated the birthday of the sun god on Dec. 25. Does anybody else find that fascinating? Historically speaking, the birth of the sun god, during the winter solstice, is the real reason for this holy day season, as the burger joint, Sonic ®, so plainly (and honestly) states; not Christmas. And they have chosen to honor the sun god in classic fashion with a phallus, a foot long hot dog, with the god Molech (an owl) in their car, that appears rather oblivious to their celebration. I have no idea why the owl would even be there otherwise, as opposed to a cat (another nocturnal animal), if it weren't there for a reason. And it is there for a reason, to oversee the wintry celebration. Molech is mentioned in the Bible and if you research it, Molech also take the form of the wise o' owl.
Now then, one must ask ones self, "Where does Jesus' birth come into all of this?" The answer is that it doesn't. Sonic ® makes no mention of Christmas here, which is odd since Christmas is the biggest time of the year for retailers. So kudos to Sonic® for being honest, as they candidly show, this time of year has nothing to do with Christ's birth. And at this time, I would like to point out that just because the word "Christ" appears in a word (like Christmas), that in no way means it is holy. After all, Jesus' name is used as a swear word, and the word Anti-Christ should also make my point abundantly clear. So, why haven't faithful Christians asked themselves why this holy day is called "Christmas?" Because they avoid the obvious, which is that Christmas is short for Christ's Mass, a Catholic religious rite which is held at midnight on Christmas eve and extends into Christmas day. What is the midnight mass? The midnight mass is the celebration of the birth of the sun god, not the Lord Jesus Christ. Of course, the Catholic faithful will deny this vehemently, but history and symbolism are not on their side. Here are a few images to show you, dear reader, the connection of pagan sun worship, and what goes on in the Catholic church.
Tradition Trumps Orthodoxy
If Christians, so-called, were really interested in learning the truth, then they would search and find that Christmas was not openly celebrated in this country until the mid 1800's. Wait, what? Yes, that's right. The people that Christians turn to to justify their right to force godliness on the rest of the nation DIDN'T EVEN celebrate Christ's birth! Why not? Because the Puritans and Pilgrims were closer to the truth, they knew that Christmas was the Roman Catholic solstice celebration thinly veiled with Christian decorations. That should speak volumes about the source of this false-Christ celebration in the dead of winter, but the truth is a bunch of humbug to these blind souls. So be it. Those who refuse the truth will face Jesus and have to explain themselves to him, and that fact should make them squirm and tremble, but it doesn't. I suppose that is the bliss that comes with ignorance, and a false sense of security.
Contrary to what you might think, I do NOT enjoy telling people, "You're WRONG!" No one likes to hear that, especially me! But when you're wrong, you're wrong. And I was once terribly wrong in celebrating this wicked holy day. I desperately try to bring the truth to you in love, it takes a lot of nerve to bring this kind of stuff into the light, to face the ridicule of the masses, to rip the veil off and expose the lie. I don't take this stuff lightly, and neither should you. This is very serious business. So, I have given you the truth via history, which you can look up for yourself, and I have given you the truth via Scripture, which you can also look up for yourself. Now, simply see if what I say is so, just as I have done, and found the leaders of Christianity to be wanting in their exegesis regarding Christmas. They have lied to us, Christ doesn't want us to celebrate his Scriptural and historically undocumented birth via pagan rites, he wants us to celebrate his Scriptural and historically known death, burial, and resurrection via communion, until he comes.
Now, allow me to leave you with these words from Amos chapter 5. They are spoken by our Lord:
20 Will not the day of the LORD be darkness, not light-- pitch-dark, without a ray
21 "I hate, I despise your religious festivals; your assemblies are a stench to me.
22 Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them. Though you bring choice fellowship offerings, I will have no regard for them.
23 Away with the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps.
24 But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
25 "Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the wilderness, people of Israel?
26 No, you served your pagan gods—Sakkuth your king god and Kaiwan your star god—the images you made for yourselves. (see Acts 7:43)
27 Therefore I will send you into exile beyond Damascus," says the LORD, whose name is God Almighty.
