Diabolical: Of or pertaining to the Devil, demoniacal, fiendish.
Paradox: A statement actually self-contradictory or false.
Christmas is purported to be the celebration of the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. By simply and honestly examining the history, the scriptures and the actual practices of Christmas, it may be easily seen that it is truly a work of Satan foisted on an unsuspecting, and often willingly gullible, humanity.
HISTORY OF CHRISTMAS…its origin Due to the cold weather in that area at that time of the year, the Judean shepherds would not have been in the fields on the 25th of December as they were at the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 2:8).1 Nor is it likely that Caesar would have required his subjects to travel to their home towns in the winter to be taxed as he did just before the birth of the Lord Jesus (Luke 2:1-3).
Nowhere in the word of God do we find anyone celebrating the birthday of the Lord Jesus, nor do we find any command from God to do so. Since God Almighty has told us that within the pages of His written word may be found all He would have us do to be perfect (mature) Christians before Him, and Christmas is not found there, it must not be a good work in the eyes of God.
II Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.”
Obviously if the celebration of Christmas did not originate with God and the Bible, we will have to look to secular history for its origin. Prior to the celebration of Christmas, December 25th was celebrated as the Natalis Solis Invicti, the birthday of the Unconquerable Sun.1 The worship of this pagan deity, known by different names in different lands, penetrated the Roman world in the first century B.C.. Under Roman Catholicism, the celebration of the birthday of the Sun was adopted2 and changed to supposedly celebrate the birthday of the Son of God, retaining many of the pagan customs and festivities.3 Some of the earliest settlers of the American colonies, the Puritans, outlawed the celebration of Christmas “because there was no biblical sanction”4 for such an observance….
THE DIABOLICAL PARADOX
The celebration of Christmas is purported to be in commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ. In the mass celebrating His birth, the Roman Catholics claim to call Him down from heaven and crucify Him again, the same as on Calvary. This means they celebrate His birth by killing Him!!!
Shall we who know the Christ of the Bible follow the leading of these “other christs” as they claim to accomplish such a terrible feat. Shall we, to the tune of clinking glasses of alcohol, shout “Merry Christ-Mass” or merry crucifixion of Christ again and again and again and again with those who do not love the Saviour! Shall we join with them in calling this unspeakable ungodliness “Christian” and make it the apex of the “Christian” holidays. If this is not a demoniacal contradiction then what is it?!!!
Can you not hear the similarity of the gleeful shouting of the two crowds? Modern day revelers, ignorant of the grand gift of the Son of God for their sins are shouting “Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas!” While the Christ rejecting Jews at the cross shouted “Crucify Him, Crucify Him.” They are the SAME!!! Surely Satan must roll with laughter at the spectacle of some of God’s true children blindly joining with his ungodly followers…..

2 Tertullian, a writer in 230AD lamented the inconsistency of supposed disciples of Christ who willingly compromised with paganism, while the heathen had stricter fidelity to their superstitions. “Oh, how much more faithful are the heathen to their religion,” he said, “who take care to adopt no solemnity from the Christians.” See Alexander Hislop, THE TWO BABYLONS, Loizeaux Bros., Neptune, N.J., 1959, p. 93.
