So many 25`ft of December.......

.



Ma tot intreb... Din ce cauza exista asa multi oameni care chiar cred ca data de 25 Decembrie este ziua de nastere a "pruncului" Isus Cristos?
 Majoritatea raspunsurilor la aceasta intrebare suna in felul urmator:
"Pentru ca asa am fost crescuti sa credem, asta am fost invatati"
"Asa scrie in biblie, asa zice popa in biserca"
 "Cum sa nu credem, asa a fost din mosi stramosi"
"E traditia noastra"....
Nu demult, astronomii australieni de la "Port Macquarie Observatory" ne anuntau ultima lor descoperire (in urma unor studii relativ simple): Isus s-a nascut pe data de 17 iunie, conform evenimentelor astronomice amintite in biblie.
Acum se ridica intrebarea "Ce anume sarbatoriti voi la data de 25 Decembrie?"
Am reusit sa gasesc raspunsul exact la aceasta intrebare printre randurile care urmeaza la finalul acestei postari (si-mi era lene sa le traduc...va descurcati voi):

Totusi, facand o exceptie de la tot ceea ce o sa cititi mai jos si considerand ca Isus s-a nascut cu adevarat pe 25 Decembrie, cum anume ar trebui sa-l sarbatoriti voi ?
Eu stiu ca nu exista nici un model biblic in care Isus si-a sarbatorit ziua de nastere. Nu tin minte nici sa existe cuvantul "craciun" scris undeva prin biblie. Nici Isus nici apostolii sai nu au amintit vreodata de ziua lui de nastere.  (sa ma contraziceti va rog cu un citat din biblie daca gresesc)
Si totusi chiar daca El nu a facut asta si voi va doriti asa mult sa-l sarbatoriti, o faceti asa cum se cuvine?
Ce inseamna Craciunul pentru tine?
Altceva decat taierea masiva a puietilor de brad, altceva decat chef, betie, carnati, sarmale, carne proaspata de porc, carne umpluta cu alta carne, mai multa carne, 3 pastile de "Colebil", mersul cu colinda pentru bani, pomana din troleul 25 data unora care exploateaza aceasta sarbatoare profitabila, profit comercial, a oferi si a primi cadouri, concedii in strainatate, inseamna o ocazie buna de a transmite tarii urari de bine facand publicitate electorala, inseamna concerte de colinde sustinute din dragoste de Dumnezeu dar cu conditia a cateva mii de Euro ......?
Si toate schimburile astea de cadouri le faceti voi pentru Isus?
..... Serios?
Ma indoiesc ca mai asculta atunci rugaciunile voastre atata vreme cat toate acestea le faceti in numele lui.
Va obisnuiti copiii sa creada altceva decat "E ziua lui Isus, super... o sa primesc o multime de cadouri"?
Va doresc un "Natalis Invicti" cat mai lipsit de neplaceri.
Eu voi "sarbatorii" la fel ca intotdeauna sarbatoarea asta nenorocita: acasa cu 2-3 carti in mana si muzica cat mai buna...fara LER.
P.S.
Nu-mi trimiteti aceleasi mesaje pe care le primesc in fiecare an, nu va amintiti de mine in perioada sarbatorilor, nu ma sunati in perioada sarbatorilor, nu va ganditi la mine. Nu vreau sa aud de voi daca in ultima jumatate de an nu am fost la o bere impreuna, daca nu ne-am scris, daca nu ne-am auzit la un telefon asa...fara un motiv anume. Nu vreau sa-mi amintesc de tine la fiecare Craciun sau Paste si atat. Nu te cunosc. Nu vreau sa te cunosc. Nu suntem atat de apropiati incat sa-mi vorbesti despre "lumina sfanta", "incalzirea sufletelor", "iubirea pruncului" sau sa-mi spui cu atata nerusinare orice magarie care incepe cu "sincere urari"!

Ati ajunge cu totii in iad fratilor daca ar fi adevarata toata gluma asta cu Dumnezeu dar sunteti prea egoisti sa va ganditi macar la asta.


"" The ancient European pagans celebrated the midwinter festival and a number of other festivals long before Christianity ever existed!

Babylonians celebrated the feast of the Son of Isis with gluttonous eating and drinking, and gift giving and the goddess of fertility, love, and war.

The Romans held a festival on 25 December called “Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, celebrating their own god Sol Invictas - PAGAN.

The Persian god Mithras, the Syrian sun god Elah Gabal, the German Sol, the Greek Helios and the Mesopotamian Shamash. But also Saturnalia, honouring Saturn, the God of Agriculture. The law courts and schools were closed. No public business could be transacted an this is where the holidays originated - ALL PAGAN!!!

Wax tapers were given by the more humble to their superiors. The origin of the Christmas candle - PAGAN!!

In Rome groups of costumed went from house to house entertaining their people. And this was where the carolling Christmas tradition originated PAGAN!!

Statues of the Mother and lover or Mother and son were paraded through the streets not only in Italy but also in Africa, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany and Bulgaria. Thus, the symbolism of the Heavenly Virgin and the infant child paraded on a yearly basis are not of Christian origin. They stem from the Mother-goddess religion, which is very ancient ENTIRELY PAGAN!!.

Scandinavian countries celebrated Yule honouring Thor - PAGAN.

In Germania (not Germany) they celebrated midwinter night followed by 12 wild nights of eating and drinking. The 12 days of Christmas PAGAN!!

The church under Pope Julius I declared that Christ’s birth would be celebrated on December 25 in 350 AD in order to try to hijack the PAGAN festivals but it was largely ignored. Christians did not really celebrate Christmas until 378 but it was then dropped in 381 and not resurrected until 400.

The Christmas tree stems from pagan tradition and ritual surrounding the Winter Solstice, which included the use of holly boughs ivy and other foliage as an adaptation of pagan tree worship. Holly and ivy represented male and female. Mistletoe was considered a sacred plant, and the custom of kissing under the mistletoe began as a fertility ritual - all PAGAN!!

Santa Claus came from the Dutch “Sinterklaas” and was a tall figure riding a white horse through the air and usually accompanied by Black Peter, an elf who punished disobedient children. Also the origin of the reindeer, sleigh and the elves ALL PAGAN!!

The modern red coated Santa was brought about by Coca Cola!!

America actually banned Christmas several times and is the originator of the expression “Happy Holidays” which came about because of the pagan origins of Christmas to include all religions and traditions!!

The Venerable Bede, an early Christian writer pointed out that the Christian church absorbed Pagan practices when it found the population unwilling to give up the festivals. Thus a lot of what Christians now see as Christians practices are in fact pagan!!! ""
