How December 25 Became Christmas – Biblical Archaeology Society

via How December 25 Became Christmas – Biblical Archaeology Society

Those who do not celebrate Christmas are extremely vocal in pushing the idea that Christmas is pagan. That the Roman Catholic Church back in the 3rd century, in an effort to Christianize the heathen, allowed them to bring their pagan practices into the church. Those who hold to this position would like everyone to believe that this is the one and only explanation for Christmas being celebrated on December 25 in the western world.

This article, written by Andrew Mc Gowan, Dean and President of the Berkeley Divinity school at Yale, disputes some of the assertions of those who call Christmas pagan. He also presents historical proofs indicating that Christmas was a product of Christians and not of the heathen.

About veldaville

A retired special education teacher with a Masters Degree in Education from Mount St. Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Was raised in an evangelical church but at age 20 joined Armstrong's Worldwide Church of God. After spending over 30 years in that cult, God opened my eyes to his truth and brought me back to the things I had learned when I was a youth. I believe that I was a Christian all along but because I was young and unlearned in the Scriptures, I fell prey to a religious cult. My ambition is, therefore, to proclaim Jesus Christ to all and especially to those who have been deceived by false teachers. My hope is that they may see the light and be saved from those who prey on their souls.
