You're not supposed to have a Christmas tree if You're Christian

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Jeremiah 10: 1-5 does talk about cutting down a tree and decorating it.
God and Idols 
1 Hear what the LORD says to you, O house of Israel. 2 This is what the LORD says: 
  "Do not learn the ways of the nations 
  or be terrified by signs in the sky, 
  though the nations are terrified by them. 
3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless; 
  they cut a tree out of the forest, 
  and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. 

4 They adorn it with silver and gold; 
  they fasten it with hammer and nails 
  so it will not totter. 

5 Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, 
  their idols cannot speak; 
  they must be carried 
  because they cannot walk. 
  Do not fear them; 
  they can do no harm 
  nor can they do any good."

No one actually follows the bible or everyone would have mulitple wives, everyone would smoke pot, and men could run around raping women as long as they married them. Oh we would also still sacrifice lambs.

Only convenient scripture applies. That's inconvenient so they ignore it. Lol!



This is EXACTLY why I hate Christianity. They pick and choose!

Well trees are pagan traditions anyways so yeah. But people puck and choose what parts of the bible to listen to anyways. A the end of the day I don't care what people have or don't have up in their homes.

Convenient scripture quoting takes place on both sides.

They're not talking about Christmas trees, they're talking about carved idols of other gods.

You missed the second half of verse 3."and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel"
When's the last time you took a chisel to your xmas tree?

When the guy with the chainsaw chops the bottom off to put the tree stand on?

 Im guessing you dont know what a chisel is, its not another name for a ax or chainsaw lol.

Also it talks about making a tree into a idol, that isnt what a christmas tree is, this isnt talking about a christmas tree at all.

 

I know what a chisel is, and I know they didn't have chainsaws back then either, but they do accomplish the same goal.

 only a moron would try and cut down a tree with a chisel
