“Christmas is not mentioned in the entire book of the Bible. Never one time did Jesus refer them to His birth, but to His death.”
JESUS CHRIST WAS NOT BORN IN DECEMBER; HE WAS BORN IN APRIL
“It couldn’t have been Christ’s birthday. It just absolutely could not have been. He’d have had to been born in March or April, ‘cause He was the Lamb. And He was a male sheep and borned in under the ram, Aries. It had to be. You see? And—and sheep are not born in December anyhow. Sheep are born in the spring. And then another thing, the hills of Judaea now, there’s twenty feet of snow on them. How could the shepherds have been out there?
“Christmas is not a Protestant holiday. It’s a Catholic day. The 25th of December was months and months before our Lord was born. Our Lord was born in April. But He wasn’t born in December. If you’ve been in Judaea in December it’s colder than this, so—so you know He wasn’t born in December. And it’s spelled, it’s C-h-ri-s-t-m-a-s, a mass for Christ. It’s the Christ-mass.”
And by the way, Christ wasn’t born on the twenty-fifth day of December either. He couldn’t have been. If you’d ever been in Judaea, the hills are full of snow, worse than it is here: He (was) born in April when all nature comes forth. Now, but it’s a tradition. And why—why do we do those things? Because we follow the traditions of men instead of the commandments of God. Then something like that wouldn’t matter, but they just make a commercial day out of it. It’s a disgrace, a shame for them to do such things as that.”
CHRISTMAS ORIGINATED FROM THE ROMAN “SUNGOD” FESTIVAL
“We celebrate this 25th day of December for the birthday of Christ, but, of course, anyone knows that it wasn’t Christ’s birthday. That was the Roman SUN god’s birthday, that when the church was converted into, or, brought into Catholicism, was formed at the council at Nicaea. Instead of it being the sun god’s, they made it the Son of God’s birthday. And it was the sun god’s birthday, and they just taken the Son of God and made that His birthday, to blend it in with their pagan tradition. And it’s no means at all being Christ’s birthday. He could not been born at that time, because Judaea is about the same on the—on the… high up in the equator as this is, and we—we find out that in Judaea in the wintertime, 25th of December, she’s blizzardly and cold. Shepherds cannot be on the hill, and many reasons that it couldn’t be. And then He was nature born like all other nature, He—He came forth in the spring, usually when the lambs are born in the spring; and He was the Lamb. Now, I believe He was born, myself, March, April, or somewhere along in there in the early spring.”
“But this being the 25th of December, why, making it the birthday, this is the sun god’s birthday (See?), the Roman Baalim, the sun god. See? And the sun is just exactly halfway around now. And from the 20th unto the 25th was when the Roman circus was in celebration of the sun god’s birthday. And the… So they said, “Well now, to please the—both Christian and pagan, we’ll make instead of sun god, the Son of God and the sun god together. So we’ll put it all together and make it the same birthday and make it on the 25th.” So it seemed to please the pagan and the nominal church then, or the first church of Rome was just… It was just all right with them, so they didn’t care. So they made it both sun god and Son of God’s birthday.”

“This was done by the Roman Catholic church before it become the Catholic church in Rome, about 86, 106, somewhere along in there, or 306, rather. Now, we find out that the Roman pagans worshipped Jupiter, which is the sun god; and they worshipped Ashtoreth, which was the moon god, or otherwise the mother of the—the mother of heaven. Well, to bring this down, they said that Ashtoreth, or god’s mother of heaven was no more, and reflected herself in Mary. So it still remained idolatry, connecting Christianity to idolatry. Then also, and they suffered, or worshipped and respected the birthday of their sun god, which was Jupiter. It’s when the sun from December the first until December the twenty-fifth.”

“But then when Christianity was brought into Romanism and mixed at Nicaea, then they had the sun god, Jupiter, the sun god of Rome, his birthday was on the— between the—about the twenty-fifth day of December. Because the Roman circus started on the twenty-first and lasted till the twenty-fifth, which was in celebration of the sun god’s birthday. So blending Romanism paganism to—to Christianity, they said, “Let’s make it the Son of God’s birthday, and then we can all agree upon it.” See, it’s always been on systems of compromising to the Truth, every time, has always been.”

“Pergamos was invited. All right, they was invited to a feast after the Nicene Council. They was invited to the feast of Winter Solstice, which means the sun, worship of the sun, which was a pagan god, which fell on December the 21st, the shortest day in the year. And the years… The same time doesn’t change till December the 25th. All heathens celebrated it, the sun god’s birthday. The sun god’s birthday was the shortest day in the year, December the 21st. And anyone that ever read the history of the churches know that heathens worshipped on that day. It was a celebration. Well, the Romans had—they had the big games, the Roman circus. How many seen this here, whatever it was here not long ago, they had, “Ben Hur”? See? Now, the Roman circus; that’s what the Romans had on that sun day, in commemoration of the birthday of the sun god.”

“You love each other?
[Congregation says “Amen.”—Ed.] Turn around and shake hands with each other, say, “God bless you. Christ be with you.”
Instead of “Merry Christmas,” say,
“Christ be with you,” as you turn around”
