When the Man Comes Around

And I looked and behold: a pale horse. And his name, that sat on him, was Death. And Hell followed with him.

Christmas trees

Since Christmas is a heathen (pagan) holiday, it should be no surprise that the Lord commands us to not partake in its traditions.

Jeremiah 10:1-5 gives us a perfect description of a Christmas tree, with the Lord forbidding the custom.

Thus saith the  Lord , Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.  Jeremiah 10:2-5
