Was the message a fellow Christian told me today.
To celebrate in the form of a Mass for Christ (CHRISTmASS) Rejoicing in the day Christ came in the flesh and to dwell among us by being born of the Virgin Mary is a human tradition, it was suggested to me.
This was supported by an array of bible verses ( “Col 2:8 ’ See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.”)
He said that because Christ did not specifically instruct us to celebrate his Birthday this contradicts the passages he quoted and that I was following human tradition and not Christ. But what actually riled me up, in attack of the Catholic Faith he then told me that I need to read the bible, which was built by Catholics.
Is this a real thing people actually try to debate that you should not celebrate Christmas?
