Christmas Is celebrated every 25th December. This occasion is celebrated to mark the birth of Jesus Christ. On this festive day, a lot of Christians enjoy themselves with good foods and drinks. Though this festive day brings happiness but many people hold the idea that celebrating this day is a sin.
There are a whole lots of articles and videos on the internet making people to believe that Sunday is the day of the Sun. It is said that the Romans used to worship the Sun on Sunday and this has now become the day that Christians meet which Christians call it the Lord's Day.
Ah, love. Nothing makes the heart beat more than candles, flowers and the sound of love phrases. We love it so much that we have a day dedicated to celebrating the love in our lives, the wonderful Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day has its roots in an ancient (and quite daring) Roman tradition called Lupercalia.

I really enjoyed this Monday's expose on the seat show on net2 because of what transpired on the show. Prophet Peter Anamoh has been on the seat show for like a month now with all sorts of allegations and revelations.

He had said on this program that all pastors in this country are fake and they have deceived Ghanaians. That he has been sent by God to come deliver not just Ghanaians but the whole world from
Christmas is a celebration of the Christians but mostly of the Catholics. It is celebrated in December, probably on the 24th to the 26th day of the month. Moreover, it is celebrated to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25. Before I continue, I presume you know very well of the religious festival. Well, here is what you need to know about the origination of Christmas. The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336 C.E, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine.
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way….. Christmas is all about making memories and having fun and is celebrated annually and the exchange of presents as well. It is celebrated to remember the birth of Jesus Christ, who Christians adore. The name Christmas comes from the Mass of Christ.

The name Christmas was formed because the ‘Christ-Mass’ service was the only one that was allowed to take place after
Kissing the holy and sacred objects has been part of various world religions for thousands of years. The practice comes from cultures where a "kiss" was viewed as a sign of respect or used as a greeting and was naturally applied to objects that represented the divine. As Catholics developed the liturgy, they adapted customs from their own culture and gave them new significance. Kissing the Altar was one of them and was quickly attached to the actions of the priests at Mass. Brief History: During the first centuries
Biblical Verses Depicting Sunday Worship Sunday worshiping is the norm for Christian worship today. As slightly or apparently opposed to Sabbath, it is the most accepted day of worship in the entire Christian world. How best does the bible support modernity? In fact the bible does support modernity and has in many occasions endorsed modern customs. The little bit challenge here is that, is a particular day of worship applicable to modern ways of worshiping God? Despite the numerous debates on the actual day
Whereas it is true the a certain pagan festival was celebrated on December 25, before Christ was born, and later it was appropriated for the celebration of the birthday of Christ.

He indeed made the Church a state
Ah, love. Nothing makes the heart beat more than candles, flowers and the sound of love phrases. We love it so much that we have a day dedicated to celebrating the love in our lives, the wonderful Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day has its roots in an ancient (and quite daring) Roman tradition called Lupercalia.

These pagan antics remained very popular even
As a Christian, how well do you know your Christian faith? - Know the history behind the Nicene Creed
The debate about Jesus’ divinity and humanity after his ministry on earth gave birth to what we call the Nicene Creed. This development came up centuries after Jesus’ Ascension. Two school of thoughts debated between the divinity of Jesus and his human nature. Docetists believed Jesus was really God and only seemed to be human while Ebionites also believed Jesus was only human but denied his pre-existence and divinity. This someway led to the development of the Nicene Creed. Church history has never been
