To be honest here, you saying the following

However, it appears you are fixed to have it that way at any cost.
When serious about searching, a steady read of primary sources helps rather than searching the Web for the sensational.

would be deemed by most to be an “undercovered” personal insult.  Maybe you should look in the mirror on your criticism of QC and myself.

Unfortunally, QC and Unprofitable, it appears... regretfully that some cannot leave a discussion without resorting to undercovered personal insult.
I am not sure what undercover personal insult I departed the discussion with. You (and please correct me if I am wrong)have more than once stated that quotes shared in this thread that don't match your thinking were unreliable basically just because you said it was. That, sister, is nothing more than your opinion, to which you are entitled. My comment was not intended as an "undercover insult" but a statement of summary of your posts. My apologies if it came across as an insult.

On the other hand, it does involve breaking God's law if you kill someone.
The 6th commandment clearly involves the act of murder not the act of self-defense. Our Lord even told His disciples to have swords, they weren't used to roast marshmallows on an open fire. You have no indication at all in the story that the gunman was persecuting people for their faith. Your just wrong on this my brother, not going waste time on debating you.

Once again (see TMC link well researched and documented) we have ample proof that Christmas is not a "Christianized" pagan celebration of our Lord's birth. Both it and the date(more later) are not pagan in their origin. Yet we have brethren taking unwittingly what is misleading and inaccurate and using it to admonish us. It is the *truth" that should be spoken in love.

The date is obviously unknown and not even important, the event (which is NOT brought front and center except for this time of year) is of GREAT importance (which I showed earlier from Scripture.)Even when we celebrate another's birthday it is the event not the day that is important.

The reality of God's great condescension in our Lord's Incarnation should be a daily cause of celebration, thanksgiving, and worship. It is NOT a nothing to see here event. Obviously nothing else would have occured in the life of Christ without it.

Paul not only said God forbid that I should glory save in the cross, he also said I will glory in mine infirmities, that those saved under his ministry (ye are our glory) and the Christian actions of them (see II Cor 8&9) were cause for glorying.

All days are "holy days" for God's children.

Praying for you sc.

“There is a myth circulating that Christmas was originally a pagan holiday. Some claim it was proclaimed by Constantine to be on or around the winter solstice in order to placate the pagans and borrow their celebration. Some claim it was borrowed from the pagan Sol Invictus festival. None of these are true, and I can prove it with a single piece of evidence.

“Here is a quote from Hippolytus of Rome in his commentary on Daniel, written around 202 AD:

“For the first advent of our Lord in the flesh, when he was born in Bethlehem, was December 25th, Wednesday, while Augustus was in his forty-second year, but from Adam, five thousand and five hundred years. He suffered in the thirty-third year, March 25th, Friday, the eighteenth year of Tiberius Caesar, while Rufus and Roubellion were Consuls.”

“Here we have a claim from the very beginning of the third century that Christ was born on December 25th. This may or may not be the real date of Christ’s birth. But we do know that Christians were claiming this day as the date Christ was born at least as early as 202 AD.

“The festival of Sol Invictus began in 274 AD, some 72 years later. Thus, if there were any borrowing going on, the pagans stole the date from the Christians, not the other way around.

Premillennialism is a rather new “doctrine”.
http://www.ldolphin.org/premillhist.html

One of the many quotes from the article

"RIGHT-MINDED CHRISTIANS...ARE ASSURED THAT THERE WILL BE A RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD, AND A THOUSAND YEARS IN JERUSALEM, WHICH WILL THEN BE BUILT ADORNED, AND ENLARGED, AS THE PROPHETS EZEKIEL AND ISAIAH AND OTHERS DECLARE." -- JUSTIN MARTYR (100-165 A.D.)

Philip Schaff, the dean of American church historians and himself a postrnillennialist, provided the following summary of the early church's view of the millennium: "The most striking point in the eschatology of the ante-Nicene age is the prominent chiliasm, or millenarianism, that is the belief of a visible reign of Christ in glory on earth with the risen saints for a thousand years, before the general resurrection and judgment. It was indeed not the doctrine of the church embodied in any creed or form of devotion, but a widely current opinion of distinguished teachers, such as Barnabas, Papias, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Methodius, and Lactantius."

Even the Monergism website references, why the early church fathers finally rejected Premillennialism.

So to say that it is a relatively new position is not accurate.

Tommy: I know that there is ample proof that humans remember significant events on the day they occurred (like 9-11), so the Shepherds probably remember His birth the rest of their years and Jesus mom would have made note of His birthday every year because that is what moms do.  Plus all New Testament writers who would have been Apostles and early church leaders, they actually saw the significance of Christ birth decades after it happened!

Dr. Tim:  That’s right Tommy, there is no insignificant part of the life of our Lord, his birth, his presentation at the Temple, His staying behind at Jerusalem, His ministry, His message, His miracles, His suffering, His death, His resurrection, His high Priestly office and all are very important! We should thank Gid daily for the Incarnation and not be dissuaded by what the world does or does not do

Yes, Susie, great observation, in fact in Philippians 2 it talks about our Lord being made in likeness of men that He might die for our sins, that also occurred at His birth.

Galatians 4:4 God sent forth His Son, made of a woman

Nicholas:  That wasn’t just about His coming was it Dr. Tim, it says made of a woman, that would have to be His birth also?

Dr. Tim:  That is correct Nicholas and when Paul wrote in Romans 1 that Christ was made of the seed of David according to the flesh, He was referring to His birth.

Hebrews 2 describes the birth our Lord in conjunction with His death on the cross saying that Jesus was made (at His birth) a little lower than the angels

How important is this, consider the words found in I John 4 that if we deny that the Lord came in the flesh (that would have occurred at His birth) is not of God.

Paul was talking about the important doctrines to the church stated in I Timothy 3:16 that one of them was God manifested in the flesh, which only occurred due to His birth in Bethlehem.

Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah…out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel

Julie:  But wait, Dr. Tim that doesn’t talk about his birth

Dr. Tim: Ah but Julie, if we read in Matthew’s gospel that wise men came to Herod asking, Where is he that was  born. King of the jews, and the chief priest and wise men quote the verse found in Micah and when they were debating about whether or not Jesus was the Christ in John 7 they tied the verse in Micah to he birth.

Dr. Tim continued

The message of the angel to the Shepherds was said not to be to them alone but to all people

Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord,

The angel talking with Joseph about the birth of Christ told him

Matthew 1:21 and she shall bring forth a Son and thou shalt call His name Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sin

In fact the story of His birth in our Bible consumes 2 chapters in Matthew and 3 in Luke, it is no small event!

John 1:14 The Word became flesh and dwelt among us,

Susie:  That happened at the time of His birth right Dr. Tim?

Welcome to Dr. Tim’s class, today will discuss the birth of Lord Jesus Christ.

Johnny: Dr. Tim, Dr. Tim, my Muslim friend says there was no virgin birth.

Dr. Tim: Unfortunately he is denying the doctrine of the virgin birth, not the narrative of the virgin birth.
Susie: Why are we talking about this now?

Dr. Tim: Well some well meaning Christians say this is just part of a narrative, or it doesn’t matter, or its significance was a one time event and probably didn’t happen during this time of year. They may be correct the date is unknown but the only time they discuss it is during the so called Christmas season, they don’t glory in it on other days so as to disassociate with the “pagan” holiday, they only bring it up to during the time of year in which both in the secular and sacred world there is focus in on it.

George: Are there verses in the Bible that emphasizes His birth, God leaving heaven to become a citizen of Earth seems like a big deal?

Dr. Tim: Good question George, let us see.

Isaiah 7:14 says a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given

I could go into more details with other verses but two in Galatians should do to disprove sister B’s statement that the birth of Christ has nothing to do with redemption

Galatians 4:4,5

But when the fullness of time was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to REDEEM them that were under the law that we might receive the adoption of sons

see also Hebrews 2:5-10 and Matthew 1:21

"always room for improvement".
Bro, in my country I have been around churches long enough to know that the church - which is the people - remain the same from year to year. To my mind, that means they are saying, "I am fine, all my doctrine is fine....." Nothing ever changes. Well of course, if you are already perfect, nothing needs to change. But it seems you are like me, and see a great need of improvement, of an increase in holiness, of greater separation, of deeper sacrifice, of higher levels of worship, of better submission to the will of God, of a total submission to the word of God.
Well, let's take the last one, total submission to the word of God. Let's apply it to this day - December 25th - and ask how it is that so many Christians make a lot of this day without any biblical warrant, none whatsoever, zilch, zip, naught, nothing, zero.
Room for improvement there, eh?
Just another day to worship the Lord and all that He is. Another day to thank Him for His undeserved mercy and grace and for all He has done, including leaving the glories of heaven and taking on flesh!

Hallelujah what a Savior!!!

Brother, I have great rejoicing in Jesus Christ and have much gratitude that he came into the world to save sinners. I am not of those who say, "I am fine, my doctrine is fine, my church is fine, my worship is fine, everything is fine."....
John as long we journey in a sinful world and battle the world, the flesh and the devil here below then to be sure nothing is “fine”. That doesn’t mean my doctrine is bad, my church is bad, my worship is bad and everything is bad. There is always room for improvement. God, thankfully, accepts worship from fallen flawed individuals whom He has redeemed. He doesn’t require perfection. It is not about us, it is about Him.

I am not sure why you bring up arguing with you, I have not said anything about what you have written in any of your posts on this thread with of course the exception being this post.

I pray all of my brothers and sisters have a Christ filled day and will worship Him in spirit and in truth.
Luke 17:10, if you are referring to this Frank, my email has been out for a while and I am in the process of setting up a new one. When I do that, I will once again post my email.Things like this don't come easy for us old-timers.
Thanks for the update I will give you mine when yours is available, you can then share it with sc. Hope you don't mind using you as a go between. She has emailed you before, if memory serves me correctly, and I want her to be comfortable with the whole process.

Can identify with things taking time. My wife says the only thing I do quickly is forget stuff. God bless you brother.
