Perhaps in these last hours before Christmas… some will ‘pause & reflect’ of what is ‘Cultural’ and: what is “TRUTH”…? How about some “Tough Questions”…? Is there a command or inference in the Holy Word of God: about Celebrating Christmas: “Yes” or “No”…? Will True Born Again Christians, celebrate Christmas: in the New Heaven & New Earth…? “Yes” or “No”…?  If You cannot be Honest about these small things: what about the ‘Rest’ of LIFE…?
