Usually enjoy the sermons but to-day 20.12.09 was very disappointed. You referred to Simeon waiting for christmas. Do you not know that christmas is a pagan festival and has nothing to do with Christ or His birth so how was Simeon waiting for it? it is the Mass of Christ and in the 5th century the RC church commanded that the birth of Christ be observed forever on Dec 25th to celebrate the birth of Sol one of the names of the sun-god. Your word to-day was a lot of truth mixed with error and brother I think you should research a little more into the pagan practices of this season of the year and come out from among them and be ye separate we are to be differend from the world a holy peculiar people. Rev.18v4. May the Holy Spirit open your eyes and many of our evangelical pastors in these last days to the truth.
