Many highly educated people have come to the conclusion that Christianity is nothing more than a new version of pagan mythology. There are many examples.
One reason they believe that, is the fact that December 25th is known to have been considered the birthday of pagan gods long before the time of Christ. Even so, now, it is widely accepted as the birthday of our Savior.
Those folks think that we are stupid – but there is a difference between deception and stupidity. Many of us have been deceived by our religious leaders and teachers. I know that I was; and, when I found out, I knew that it was my responsibility to warn others. That is the purpose of these commentaries.
The book of Romans has something to say about those who reject the Gospel of Christ. We are told that: Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. December 25th never had anything to do with the birth of our Savior, yet many pseudo intellectuals have believed the lies of the theologians to the extent that they have rejected Christ all together. What are we going to do about it?
Romans 1:18 speaks of those who withhold the truth in unrighteousness. We are told that the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against them.
In an information age that plainly reveals the pagan nature of December 25th. will we demand honesty or will we be complicit with those who purposefully withhold the truth?
