It was really a gorgeous day here - what a Blessing!
Video at link above.
I don’t know when Christ was actually born, but Scriptural clues definitely makes it in the fall.
Don’t know, don’t care. I’m an atheist. I don’t believe in Zeus.
Modern computers and advances in celestial mechanics allows for a precision never dreamed possible.
We all started life as atheists. ;)
We all started life as ignorant. Then an adult had to come along and spoil it.
It wasn’t an adult who spoiled it, it was something that happened 6,000 years ago.
The King of Kings who hath brought us salvation. Happy birthday Jesus.
Actually, depending on when Zacharius, John the Baptist’s father served in the Temple, gives a possible date of...NOW OR, around Dec. 25th.
I tend to suspect that the Christians in the Roman empire were not so ill-informed, stupid, and dull as to get the date wrong after 200 years or so (when they first started celebrating Jesus’ birthday), and Christmas has NEVER been celebrated in the Fall.
So sorry Messianic Jews, Sukkot is NOT Jesus’ birthday—and 99.99% of Christ followers in history agree. You may want to get on the bandwagon and celebrate the date Jesus’ followers have faithfully followed for at least 1700 years.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
They were so stupid as to not even be able to get the months of the year right:
September (Septi-) = 7, not the 9th month!
October (Octo-) = 8, not the 10th month!
November (Novem- = 9, not the 11th month!
December (Decem-, Dec-) = 10, no the 12th month
But one small example of the preponderance of the evidence to the contrary.
What I just posted to you, proves a link exists back to the Biblical reckoning of time for the Gregorian calendar.
I am familiar with this, makes sense.
Yep...I agree...I’m in the 99.99% and celebrate the 25th of Dec. with Christians throughout the world who celebrate at this time.
I overheard a woman in a store in Tennessee telling her child that Joseph and Mary couldn’t find lodging before His birth because everyone in town was celebrating Chr*stmas.
lol - too funny!
6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Based on astrological calculations contained in the book “Star of the Magi,” the actual date was April 17, 6 B.C.
Well, you’re in for one hell of a rude awakening.
