Quote from A.W. Pink

Christmas is coming! Quite so: but what is "Christmas?" Does not the very term itself denote it's source? ‘Christ-mass.’ Thus it is of Roman origin, brought over from paganism. But, says someone, Christmas is the time when we commemorate the Savior's birth. It is? And WHO authorized such commemoration? Certainly God did not. The Redeemer bade His disciples "remember" Him in His death, but there is not a word in scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, which tells us to celebrate His birth. Moreover, who knows when, in what month, He was born? The Bible is silent thereon. It is without reason that the only "birthday" commemorations mentioned in God's Word are Pharaoh's (Gen. 40:20) and Herod's (Matt. 14:6)? Is this recorded "for our learning?" If so, have we prayerfully taken it to heart?”

- A.W. Pink, Xmas (Christ-mass)

No, Mr. Pink, we have not, not even in churches that subscribe to the Westminster Confession.

It's Christmass time again

Not one word of the below can be refuted by anyone in any church in Winston-Salem. The only response that would be made by the Christmas keepers is simply that George Gillespie is a raving lunatic. In my view, observing Christmas is incontrovertible proof that the Counter-Reformation has prevailed. The demonization of the Puritans that began with Nathaniel Hawthorne continues to this day. The reason for it is that the demonizers want to keep their "pearl of great price", which they call "Christmas". I find a never ending supply of irony in the fact that those who don't keep Christmas know what it is and those who do have no idea what it is. The real problem I see with Christmas keeping is if the Christmas keeper subscribes to the Westminster Confession because Christmas keeping is a clear violation of the Confession, as stated so succinctly by Commissioner Gilliespie. If you don't subscribe to the Confession, by all means put on the trinkets of the whore for you will not find the baggage of Babylon too heavy to carry.

"... by communicating with idolaters in their rites and ceremonies, we ourselves become guilty of idolatry; even as Ahaz, 2 Kings 16:10, was an idolater, eo ipso, that he took the pattern of an altar from idolaters. Forasmuch, then, as kneeling before the consecrated bread, the sign of the cross, surplice, festival days (like Christ-mass), bishopping, bowing down to the altar, administration of the sacraments in private places, etc., are the wares of Rome, the baggage of Babylon, the trinkets of the whore, the badges of Popery, the ensigns of Christ's enemies, and the very trophies of antichrist, -- we cannot conform, communicate and symbolise with the idolatrous Papists in the use of the same, without making ourselves idolaters by participation. Shall the chaste spouse of Christ take upon her the ornaments of the whore? Shall the Israel of God symbolise with her who is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt? Shall the Lord's redeemed people wear the ensigns of their captivity? Shall the saints be seen with the mark of the beast? Shall the Christian church be like the antichristian, the holy like the profane, religion like superstition, the temple of God like the synagogue of Satan?"

Inaugural invocation

To the question of “What do you think of Rick Warren delivering the invocation at Obama's inauguration?” Mr. Stoecker gets it completely right. I have yet to meet a liberal who is not a hater. Hate is always the main component of their argument. Ask them what’s wrong with George Bush and the answer you’ll get is: “I Hate Him”. This is why they are delusional. George Bush is the most perfect leftist to ever occupy the Oval Office but their delusion keeps the leftists from realizing this. Evangelical Christians are just as much delusional though: they think George Bush is a conservative!

The Delusional Leftists

The anger many leftists and militant homosexuals have expressed at Obaminable's choice of Rick Warren to give the invocation at his inauguration is but the latest example of how deluded these people are. Warren is no conservative; it is doubtful that he is really even a Christian.
Leftists hated the "right wing" Richard Nixon, but Nixon was yet another tool of the Illuminati-dominated CFR, carrying out their incremental leftist agenda. He began the first moves toward recognizing Fascist China, and he federalized many welfare programs. They hated George I, but he carried the leftist agenda even further. They hated Ken Starr for "persecuting" Slick, but Starr deliberately focused on the least of Clinton's crimes: his Monica Lewinsky affair and resulting perjury, and the confusing Whitewater mess, where it was not clear whether the Clintons were perpetrators or victims. Starr ignored Slick's sale of technology to China and the mysterious deaths of Vince Foster, Ron Brown, Mary Mahoney, and many, many others. Starr, like most people prominent in government, was not what he pretended to be. And, of course, all leftists (and many of us patriots) hate George II, but he is a tax and spender and has left our borders open, hardly the deeds of a conservative.
Leftists, like their Muslim comrades, are never satisfied and basically hate everyone. But they should be happy and not worry, for the Anointed One will complete the enslavement and destruction of America that is so dear to their twisted black hearts.

the current conspiracy

A conservative Republican is as rare as a conservative Democrat. The word “conservative” is an antonym to both Republican and Democrat. There is a conspiracy between the upper echelons of both the Democrat and Republican parties to perpetuate the myth that Republicans are conservative. I say conspiracy because if the voter who wants to vote conservative were to find out that Republicans aren’t conservative, he would quit voting for them and turn to a third party, which would hurt both the Democrats and Republicans. (More slices in the pie mean each slice is smaller.) This conspiracy also allows both parties to ignore their “base” because with only two parties they can say “where ya gonna go?”
