    Yes he was but I don't see how this is the same thing. His church was/should have been a sacred place and they were using it for commerce. I suppose if you consider the day as sacred you might have a point, but do people think of it that way? I think of it more as a celebration of His birth.

    Ronald,

    I see no connection with this conversation. You are quoting verses about worshipping a golden calf and we are talking about a celebration that worships the Lord. We aren't worshipping the gifts, nor the tree, nor the eggnog, ad nauseum.

    It sounds as if you do not celebrate Christmas so I will refrain from saying it, but have a nice...hmmm....life?

    "And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all
    them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the
    tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold
    doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be
    called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of
    thieves."
    Matthew 21:12-13, KJV


    No it doesn't say the actual word, but can you picture Jesus going up to one of the tables and saying, "Excuse me, may I have your table so I can toss it out the door?" And then moving on to the next.

    Eggnog...3?

    The connection is they too were having a feast unto the Lord.

    And when Aaron <0175> saw <07200> (8799) it, he built <01129> (8799) an altar <04196> before <06440> it; and Aaron <0175> made proclamation <07121> (8799), and said <0559> (8799), To morrow <04279> is a feast <02282> to the LORD <03068>.

    If I recall someone was unhappy, didn't appreciate their gesture of Love

    No, they were worshiping an idol. But just for you, I will reread that passage again when I get home and see if it changes my perspective.

    I'm not saying that at all melody. In fact, please, i want you to celebrate christmas. I wish people acted like this the other 11 months of the year, the world might be a better place. The only reason i bother bringing any of this up is 1)though you may know about it, some don't and 2)i just think they are fun little factiods about the holidays and i'm a nerd like that.:D

    As has been posted by others. There are people that do act like this the other 11 months of the year.

    Isn't it better to focus on that positive fact instead of spreading doom and gloom? Isn't there enough negativity in the world today? I mean, seriously, you mentioned in one of your posts about depression and Christmas. Don't you think your posts may depress a lot of people that have different Christian beliefs about the holidays you have posted against. Then again, I guess it depends on whether they choose to follow your thoughts or stick with what they were taught through their own religious upbringing.

    Please feel free to ask before incinuating that I am stoned.

    It seems our postings crossed ways. My apologies that again I was not specific in who I was responding to. It does appear that my statements were towards you. Not intentional. I guess I should start deleting what I am not responding to. I have no idea how to insert quotes form different posters in one response.

    Since I am having such a problem communicating I think I shall go back to posting to off-topic discussions in which I have more a chance to respond appropriately with what my feeble mind holds. I guess I need to obviously get my head out of my tush as it seems the case would be by this latest response to one of my posts.

    Sorry again jewscout.

    Off to the other threads I go.

    Has this thread been cursed? Everyone posting here this morning seems to be misunderstanding everyone else posting here. Is the obvious solution to this problem for us to all wear tin foil hats while posting in order to protect ourselves from the harmful, discord-causing radiations that are spewed by Santa's sleigh as it whizzes around the earth at Christmas time? I should think so! And that's why I already have my tin foil cap on.

    I'd have to borrow the foil. I've used all mine to wrap the plates of cookies (probably a pagan ritual too) for the homeless shelter. I only do the cookies once a year so I won't misunderstand their enthusiastic greetings to mean my worthless offering is actually acceptable.

    :woohoo:

    I need a little smilie drinking eggnog.

    That's easy for you to say if you have a tin foil cap on, but what about the millions of people in starving Africa who can't aford tin foil to protect themselves from the diabolical Christmas time radiation of Santa's sleigh? Is it really a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays for them? Am I the only one alarmed by this?

    Did I forget to say that the Elves of St. Nick really started the whole Christmas thing way back when? That's because they are really the demons Jesus expelled from all of those people when he walked the earth. I know, I know, what?! They had to go somewhere...:eek:

    Frankly, I'm no longer surprised by anything that you tell me.
