The Xmas Thread: Discussions on secular/pagan practices

Loutzenhiser's picture

This thread is for the discussion of secular/pagan Xmas problems and thoughts. I used Xmas to differentiate this thread form the Christmas thread. To discuss the birth of Jesus please use the Christmas Thread.

Good points, Dan.

In the Sermon, Jesus said he came to fulfill the Law, that is, to 'pay it off'. Its observance was no longer required to please his Father after he presented himself to Him in Heaven. (Hebrews ch. 9 % 10)

You're aware, of course, that Paul spent a good portion of his letters on refuting the Judaizing Christians, especially those in non-Jewish areas like Galatia. (Antioch was addressed especially by the letter from the meeting recorded at Acts 15, in re circumcision.)
