Across the world there are different traditions that people practice when celebrating Christmas. Most people feel that no one tradition is right; you and I may agree or disagree.
However when it comes to our views and beliefs about Jesus Christ biblical orthodoxy is essential. If you do not believe what the scriptures say about the Lord Jesus you cannot be saved and you are worse than that, antichrist and a deceiver.
As Joshua once said 'choose ye this day whom you will serve', Joshua 24:15.
