As christians we all celebrate the feast day of Christmas or more to the point “Christ’s Mass”, a Catholic tradition. Protestants being a part of the Church, although a separted part, are united to the Catholic Church at this time of year by some of the traditions held by the Church.
It seems strange that Christ’s Mass, one of the many Catholic small “t” traditions, is one that you celebrate. If you are a sola scriptura christian how do you justify such a celebration of Christ’s Mass? Why man living nativity scenes at your place of worship? Why have special faith gathering services on Christmas Day since they are not required from the bible? Why celebrate with family the birth of the Lord at this time of year. The bible never says when Jesus was born. The Catholic Church does tell us when to celebrate the birth of Christ. We are not told that is the birthday of Jesus, just when to celebrate it by the Church.
Why is so December 25th such an important date to you if you ignore the authority of the Church but observe one of her feast days this month as one of the holiest of days of the year?
