DID CHARLES SPURGEON CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS? Christ-Mass ChristMass Xmas Holy Days Reformed Baptist

DID CHARLES SPURGEON CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS? -- Christ-Mass ChristMass Xmas Reformed Baptist Holy Days Idolatry Idols Sin

We have no superstitious regard for times and seasons. Certainly we do not believe in the present ecclesiastical arrangement called Christmas: first, because we do not believe in the mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be said or sung in Latin or in English; and, secondly, because we find no Scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and, consequently, its observance is a superstition, because not of divine authority. (Charles Spurgeon, Sermon on Dec. 24, 1871, emphases added).

When it can be proved that the observance of Christmas, Whitsuntide, and other Popish festivals was ever instituted by a divine statute, we also will attend to them, but not till then. It is as much our duty to reject the traditions of men, as to observe the ordinances of the Lord. We ask concerning every rite and rubric, "Is this a law of the God of Jacob?" and if it be not clearly so, it is of no authority with us, who walk in Christian liberty. (from Charles Spurgeon's Treasury of David on Psalm 81:4., emphases added)

Christmas Is A Roman Catholic Missions Strategy

"Spurgeon’s understanding of Christmas in 1855 was it was Catholic not Protestant
Spurgeon did not celebrate Christmas as stated by him in 1856 ...
Spurgeon did preach on the birth of Christ during Christmas time in 1859 and 1868
Spurgeon’s learning brought him to believe Christmas to be of pagan origin in 1871
Spurgeon no longer preached on Christmas after 1871. He died in 1892."

From: SPURGEON: Did he celebrate Christmas? (Online blog. As with all links we provide we only agree with that which is in agreement with the Bible at the sites where the URLs point.)

What About Celebrating A Secular Christmas?

7 FREE MP3s: History of Holy Days (Sabbath, Lord's Day, Christmas, Easter, etc.) by Dr. Steven Dilday
Much needed preaching in our day, when many Protestants worship more like Roman Catholics than like the best Reformers. This sermon contains much important Scriptural and historical information.

"Christmas was not celebrated by the apostolic church. It was not celebrated during the first few centuries of the church. As late as A.D. 245, Origen (Hom. 8 on Leviticus) repudiated ...the idea of keeping the birthday of Christ, "as if he were a king Pharaoh." By the middle of the 4th century, many churches in the Latin west were celebrating Christmas. During the 5th century, Christmas became an official Roman Catholic holy day. In A.D. 534, Christmas was recognized as an official holy day by the Roman state.The reason that Christmas became a church holy day has nothing to do with the Bible. The Bible does not give the date of Christ's birth. Nowhere in the Bible are we commanded to celebrate Christmas. Christmas (as well as many other pagan practices) was adopted by the Roman church as a missionary strategy." - The Regulative Principle of Worship and Christmas by Brian Schwertley, emphases added (FREE ONLINE BOOK)

"The Regulative Principle of Worship declares that God alone is sovereign in worship." - Greg Price http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/REFORMATION-RPW-GP.htm

In 1899, the General Assembly of the PCUS was overtured to give a "pronounced and explicit deliverance" against the recognition of "Christmas and Easter as religious days." Even at this late date, the answer came back in a solid manner: "There is no warrant in Scripture for the observance of Christmas and Easter as holydays, rather the contrary (see Gal. 4:9-11; Col. 2:16-21), and such observance is contrary to the principles of the Reformed faith, conducive to will-worship, and not in harmony with the simplicity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ." - Kevin Reed, Christmas: An Historical Survey Regarding Its Origins and Opposition to It (Free Online Book)

"It is commonly objected, that we may as well keep a day for the nativity, as for the resurrection of Christ. We have answered already, that Christ's Day, or the Lord's Day, is the day appointed for remembrance of his nativity, and all his actions and benefits, as well as for the resurrection." - David Calderwood (Covenanter, emphases added), on the Puritan Hard Drive

"I would to God that every holy day (including the ChristMass - ed.) whatsoever besides the Lord's day were abolished. That zeal which brought them first in, was without all warrant of the Word, and merely followed corrupt reason, forsooth to drive out the holy days of the pagans, as one nail drives out another. Those holy days have been so tainted with superstitions that I wonder we tremble not at their very names." - Martin Bucer, cited in William Ames, A Fresh Suit Against Human Ceremonies in God's Worship (1633) , pp. 359-60, on the Puritan Hard Drive

FREE SWRB BOOK: Foundation for Reformation: The Regulative Principle of Worship (RPW, God's Sovereignty Over Worship, Against Arminianism In Worship) by Pastor Greg Price

"The Regulative Principle of Worship declares that God alone is sovereign in worship. The Regulative Principle of Worship simply applies the principles of Calvinism (i.e. God's sovereign Lordship) to worship, whereas the view that what God doesn't forbid in worship is permitted is applying the principles of Arminianism (i.e. man's sovereign lordship) to worship. Just as fallen man naturally seeks to impose his will in salvation (e.g. "I can cooperate with God in salvation",or "I have a natural freedom to choose Christ"), so fallen man naturally seeks to impose his will in worship ("I can cooperate with God in worship by adding what I desire so long as God doesn't specifically forbid it"). But just as God condemns a man-centered salvation, so God condemns a man-centered worship (Col. 2:23 specifically condemns all will-worship i.e. all worship instituted by man)." - Greg Price, Foundation for Reformation: The Regulative Principle of Worship (FREE ONLINE BOOK).

"There has not been a more valuable extra-biblical resource and tool than the Puritan Hard Drive. It holds some of the most priceless Reformed works of God-centered and Christ-glorifying truth that were ever penned. Most students, ministers and scholars of the Bible would never personally acquire even half the literal number of books on the Puritan Hard Drive, much less the extreme caliber of its contents. In God's providence modern day Christians have been chosen to be the recipients of both a theological and practical blessing. May we not squander it." - Dr. Matthew McMahon, Pastor, Author, Theologian, Seminary Professor, A Puritan's Mind Web Site, etc."
