So true! Mankind just believes whatever without looking things up to see if they are being told the truth--knowing what God says, not what man tells us it says. The only people I've spoken to that has shown me from the Bible the answers to my questions has been Jehovah's Witnesses. And they're the only people who use God's name, and do their best to act like real Christians. Like Jesus taught us to be like. I've still got questions, but I want my answers to come from God's Word only. Thanks for your comment. I'm unable to quit thinking about doing more to be Christ like. '
I'm with you 100%. You're absolutely right! Neither Jesus--who'd birth date is unknown--nor the Apostles, early Christians, nor Hebrews (the Jews) celebrate Birthdays. I read that astrology, divination, magic, etc. are mixed in with this celebration. His Laws and Statues benefit us, not God. Christmas is another celebration that is of pagan origin, yet religious leaders stay quiet on these issues? Another one is most Christians won't use God's name either. YHWH is Yahweh, or in English: Jehovah. The Dead Sea Scrolls found Yahweh (YHWH) written throughout thousands of these scrolls. Jesus, and the first Christians used God's name. In Rev. the word, Hallelujah is used which means, 'Praise Jah'. (A shortened form of Yahweh) Around the 3rd century, Christian leaders began removing God's name from the Scriptures, so today, few people, other than, Jehovah's Witnesses, will even say His name. Know wonder so many have lost faith in a Creator. The Bible is so factual, Archaeologists use it to find ancient cities, etc. I want to be thankful for such a magnificent earth, heavens, various other creations, God made simply for humans to be content and happy. All He asked in return was our love and obedience, just as we want from our own children. Thanks for your comment.
