What is the justification for Christians to have Christmas trees in their home and church?


The Christmas tree was birthed in pagan idolatry. The Bible says God will not accept worship when people take a pagan custom or manner of worship and try to honor Christ with it.

    An object is not an idol of worship unless you make it one.

    What you want the tree to be does not change its history. The star is the sacred symbol of Nimrod, and has nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity. Adding Bethlehem and Christ into the representation of the tree is what is convenient for you.

    They are items of idolatry. The Christmas wreath serves as tiny shrines to the god Jul. The berries on the wreath help fortify the spell and symbolize fertility.

    The Christmas tree is part of the beautiful side of evil which glosses eyes and gives goosebumps. Ho...Ho...Hold on!

    And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. - 2 Corinthians 11:14

    Well, I wouldn't say "Christianity" is bathed in pagan idolatry, but I would say there are some traditions handed down from the Roman Catholic Church that have been accepted by some protestant churches.

    Is it ok to bring a Buddha idol in my home because it is has no power too, just as the Christmas tree of Nimrod ?

    Can I freely enjoy how the adorned idols look as an accent to my home with the "common sense" of "who God is and what He is not?"
