My biggest forte to teach is Sukkoth, but my weakest to
the Babylonian pagan roots of December 25th. One thing I do know is
that if anyone is familiar with the holiday song "Silver and Gold"
famously sung by Burl Ives, the words to the latter part of the chorus
Silver and Gold
Silver and Gold
Means so much more when I see
Silver and Gold decorations
on every Christmas tree
But looking in the book of the Prophet Jeremiah, this is what it
Jeremiah 10:1 Hear ye ta-the word which hwhy speaketh unto you, O house
of Israel: 2 Thus saith hwhy, Learn not the way of the
heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen
are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth
a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with
the axe. 4 They deck it
with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers,
that it move not. 5 They are
upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be
borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot
do evil, neither also is it in them to do good. 6 Forasmuch as there is
none like unto thee, O hwhy; thou art great, and thy
name is great in might.
is just one of many pagan roots of the Christmas traditions that was
carried into our modern society.
There are videos below from our Hebraic Roots teachers that will
explain the pagan origins of Christmas/December 25th.
