This might look like a practice in reductio ad absurdum or mean-spirited teasing, but I would seriously like an answer from those who forbid talking about Baby Jesus in December.
How does singing and reading and preaching on the Birth of Jesus in December constitute something un-Biblical?
In which months would it be acceptable? Because if we can’t get a Bible-based ruling on when it’s okay and when it’s not, how can we ever celebrate the incarnation.
Would it be okay to focus on the birth of our Lord every July?
Is it okay to do it regularly, so long as not on the same day or month every year so that people won’t think we have made it a holiday? To have a worship assembly singing the nativity hymns and preach on the birth in February one year and August the next? Always rotating to make sure we aren’t doing something wrong?
If you are against focusing on the birth of Jesus the same time of each year, do you participate in Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Fourth of July and/or Thanksgiving themed services annually?
How can any believer in Jesus forbid others or be angry that others are worshipping some aspect of the life of Jesus?
It boggles my mind. Would love an answer.
If your conscience won’t allow it, I have to accept that, but to be honest, I have a hard time understanding and respecting it.
If you publicly condemn those who do participate in some public celebration of the birth of Jesus this time of year, you should be ashamed of yourself. Just my personal opinion.
