SERMON TOPIC: Should Christians celebrate Christmas

Speaker: Gavin Paynter

Language: ENGLISH

Date: 11 December 2011

Topic Groups: CHRISTMAS, SOUND DOCTRINE, HERESY

Sermon synopsis: Some feel that it is unimportant (or even sinful) to celebrate Christ’s birthday at all.
The arguments used by anti-Christmas proponents are normally:
- The Bible is silent on the date of Jesus birth.
- The December 25th date of Christmas and the many associated customs all come from pagan sources.
All Christmas celebrations are therefore pagan.
- Christians never observed Christmas until the 4th century.
Therefore it must have been the emperor Constantine or 'some pope' who introduced the festival as a form of honour to the sun god.
There is no instruction or precedent in the Bible to celebrate Jesus' birth.
