Do Christians unknowingly celebrate Nimrod's birthday on December 25?

  • But it's harmless

    It's just a holiday. It's not like we are worshipping them or putting them as our idol or savior. Even Jesus partied and had a good time and enjoyed wine. There's nothing wrong with that inheriently. It's when you make it a religion that it becomes a problem. But Christmas is harmless.

  • Christmas is not biblical.

    According to biblical scholars, Jesus was could not possibly
    have been born on December 25th.
    Because of the time of his birth in relation to the harvest of the
    crops, many experts have said that he was actually probably born in
    September. Also, in the Bible, in
    Jeremiah, it says not to bring a tree into your house and put ornaments on
    it. Many Christians know this, but
    celebrate it anyway because it is tradition.
    It’s no different than celebrating Easter with the Easter Bunny.

  • Yes they do.

    There you can google all about it. It seem like Christmas trees and Sunday (sun) worship may also be related as well. I also recommend googling about the holiday of Easter. I have been reading about Easter as being a celebration for a fertility goddess and not the resurrection of Jesus.

  • Yes and they shouldn’t

    Instead we should educate others about the whose “birthday” it truly is. Why don’t we know for certain the date of Jesus Christ’s true birthday? Who has worked so hard to keep that secret? We do we settle on combining the celebration of our Savior’s birth with the likes of Semiramis and her bastard son? !

  • Indeed they do

    The church does not teach what the bible say,s it states in jeremiah that he was not born in december, this has been fabricated by evil men of power, the pastors go along with what they are told to teach that is why churches are tax exempt. It is that simple to understand

  • Observance is a matter of the heart

    You cannot celebrate something you do not have in your heart. The day noted as December 25 has always belonged to the Lord, not Nimrod. The Lord created the day, not Nimrod. Nimrod is nothing. Jesus is everything. If people celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25 and you do not, what is that to you? Who are you to judge another’s servant? It’s not about it being His actual birthday but about the fact that He was born. If people celebrate it as His birth, then fine. John 18:37–Jesus notes His birth is inextricably connected to His ministry and His death. So when we celebrate His death and resurrection, we celebrate His birth. When we celebrate His birth, we celebrate His death and resurrection. Observance is a matter of the heart, and the only ones who bring up Nimrod are the ones who fight against a celebration for Christ.

  • Who we worship and celebrate is a choice.

    I never knew about Nimrod or that is was a pagan holiday as a child; I celebrated Jesus's birth. It was all about Jesus. We performed cantatas at church and so forth. Just because it is celebrated on a pagan holiday does not mean that you are celebrating that holiday. The only time a pagan god is celebrated or worshiped is when you choose to worship them; you direct your praise to their name and make sure everyone knows that is the focus of your celebration. Nimrod nor any other pagan god was ever mentioned, nor was he worshiped. If anything, by worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, his name is being praised instead of a pagan god on that day, and that is always a good thing.

  • Christians do not unknowingly celebrate Nimrod's birthday.

    Most Christians do not know who Nimrod was. Every culture has some kind of a winter holiday. It is a coincidence that this pagan festival happens around the same time as the Christian holiday, Christmas. Even if Christ wasn't born on exactly December 25, the holiday still has the same meanig of charity and community.

  • Christmas is simply pagan

    Christmas is not the celebration of "Nimrods" birthday, it's a continuation of various "pagan" celebrations that the Christians of the Roman Empire took as their own after they conquered the Roman state. That's simply where Christmas came from, no conspiracy or anything like that. It's simply a pagan holiday reheated.
