"Dear ones, the Bible does not need to be altered so as to conform to manâ€™s tastes, desires, or preferences in the 20th or 21st centuries. For truth is always truth and never changes from one age to the next.
Manâ€™s perception of what is true may indeed change, but Godâ€™s truth never changes for God Himself is immutable--He cannot change (Hebrews 13:8: â€śJesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and for everâ€ť).
Thus, the only way we can find out what Christ thinks about Christmas is to search it out in His holy Word which is what we shall do over the next three weeks. As we consider the question before us, I ask you to approach it as objectively as possible by putting aside your own preferences, your own desires, your past memories of Christmas, and all the present sights, tastes, and smells you associate with Christmas.
For remember, the question we seek to answer is this: â€śIs Jesus Christ pleased with our Christmas celebration?â€ť"
Christmas: Why We Donâ€™t Celebrate It (Part 1) Matthew 28:20 Puritan Reformed Church, Edmonton, Alberta November 29, 1998 Rev. Greg L. Price
"Now, in answering a question in the way that I framed it requires some explanation. For I did not ask whether Christmas pleases you or anyone else here on earth. I asked, â€śIs Jesus Christ pleased with our Christmas celebration?â€ť
The Lord Jesus Christ is no longer living bodily upon the earth. We cannot pick up the phone or drop by His house to ask Him this question. Therefore, how will we get an answer to such a question? We will have to go to His Word revealed to us in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.
For the Bible is the very Word of Christ. The Bible reveals the mind of Christ. The Bible is not a collection of fables and childrenâ€™s stories written by well-intentioned men, but rather the Bible is and claims to be the very Word of God from beginning to end (2 Timothy 3:16). Because it is the revelation of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, there can be no error in it without accusing God Himself of error.
