Christmas trees, secret Santa's, Easter Egg hunts, sunrise services, Halloween uh, excuse me fall festivals - all with pagan origins yet observed, condoned, overlooked or allowed in the church -

when is enough enough.?.

Have we become so desensetized that we sprinkle a little holy water around the holiday, perhaps give it a new name or a Christian spin, wash things up a bit and continue to practice the things that are detestable to God?

"The Christianization of Pagan holidays began about the fourth century A.D. when the Roman Emperor Constantine, became (or feigned becoming) a Christian. In order to consolidate his rule, he incorporated the Pagan holidays and festivals into the church ritual - attracting the Pagans, but he gave the holidays and festivals new "Christian" names and identities - thus appeasing the Christians. Over the centuries, this practice has continued until the present time where we find the two systems, Paganism and Christianity, almost indistinguishable.

This is the Adversary's clever deception - paganism dressed in Christian clothes - nothing more - nothing less, yet Christian churches have wholeheartedly embraced the deception."

"And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine." Leviticus 20:26

Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be a snare in your midst. But you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and cut down their wooden images (for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God)." Exodus 34:12-13

"What fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? ...come out from among them and be separate." 2 Cor. 6:12-18

"Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God." Revelation 3:2
