Is it a sin to celebrate Christmas?

Green Forest, AR

Sin only comes into play when one fails to acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ.

While all things are lawful for us (I Corinthians 6:12), we must be careful in three areas: (1) in determining our priorities, (2) in exposing ourselves to any thing which has the potential of bringing us under its power or cooling our affections toward Christ and (3) in choosing among alternatives those things which will best enhance our testimony before the world and help our weaker brethern (I Corinthians 10:23)

Since the Christmas season is one of the few times that the world stops to consider spiritual truths, we as Christians have a special opportunity and obligation for giving Christ the preeminence referenced earlier.

Our cause for rejoicing in celebration is God's gift of His Son. Everyone and everything else must clearly take second place.
