Origins of Christmas
December 25 is known by Christians as the day to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. The date itself and, customs associates with Christmas, have evolved from pagan traditions celebrating the winter solstice.
“Christmas is really about bringing out your inner pagan,” – Historian Kenneth C. Davis
What Encyclopedias Say
The word “Christmas” means “Mass of Christ,” or, “Christ-Mass.” It came to non-Christians and Protestants from the Roman Catholic Church, but where did they get it? The New Testament? No. The Bible? Nope. From the original apostles who were personally instructed by Christ? NADA. It apparently gravitated in the 4th century into the Roman Church from PAGANISM.
Since the celebration of Christmas has come to the world from the Roman Catholic Church, and has no authority but that of the Roman Catholic Church.
Catholic Encyclopedia, 1911 ed., published by the Roma Catholic Church.
“Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the Church. The first evidence of the feast is from Egypt.” “Pagan customs centering around the January calends gravitated to Christmas.” Under “Natal Day,” we find that the early Catholic father, Origen, acknowledged this truth.
In the Scriptures, no one is recorded to have kept a feast or held a great banquet on his birthday. It is only sinners, like Pharaoh and Herod, who make great rejoicings over the day in which they were born into this world.”
Encyclopedia Britannica, 1946 edition
“Christmas (i.e., the Mass of Christ) Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the church. It was not instituted by Christ or the apostles, or by Bible authority. It was picked up afterward from paganism.
Encyclopedia Americana, 1944 edition
“Christmas” It was, according to many authorities, not celebrated in the first centuries of the Christian church, as the Christian usage in general was to celebrate the death of remarkable persons rather than their birth” (The “Communion,” which is instituted by New Testament Bible authority, is a memorial of the death of Christ.) A feast was established in memory of Christ’s birth in the fourth century. In the fifth century the Western Church ordered it to be celebrated forever on the day of the old Roman feast of the birth of Sol, as no certain knowledge of the day of Christ’s birth existed.
These recognized historical authorities show Christmas was not observed by Christians for the first two or three hundred years. It appeared in the Western, or Roman, Church, by the fourth century A. D. It was not until the fifth century that the Roman Church ordered it to be celebrated as an official Christian festival!
Jordan Maxwell is a renowned researcher of ancient religious symbols and their meanings. He is best known for his work on the secret societies and their relation to religion and government. He has written several books on the subject, and is a popular lecturer in the United States and abroad.
Maxwell’s research began in the 1970s when he noticed a pattern of symbols in the art and architecture of ancient cultures. He developed a theory that the symbols had been used to represent a hidden knowledge or power which has been used by secret societies throughout history. He claims that this hidden knowledge is based on the laws of nature and the universe and is used to control people and nations.
Maxwell’s work has been met with both skepticism and acceptance. His theories have been widely criticized by academics and other scholars, who have dismissed them as conspiracy theories. However, his work has been embraced by some in the New Age movement, who believe that these ancient symbols represent a spiritual power or knowledge which can be used to improve the lives of individuals.
Maxwell is an outspoken critic of organized religion and the political system, and has been a vocal advocate for freedom of speech. He has appeared in numerous documentaries and TV programs, and his work has been featured in magazines such as Esquire and The New York Times. He has also given talks at universities and conferences around the globe.
Jordan Maxwell has had a lasting impact on the study of ancient symbols and their meanings. His theories and research have opened the door to a new way of looking at the world, and his work has inspired many to pursue their own research into the hidden knowledge and power of the ancients. His work has also provided invaluable insight into the history and culture of ancient societies, and has shown that the symbols used by these societies had much deeper meanings than previously thought.
