Should Christians celebrate christmas? Why I quit celebrating Christmas


Today I want to tell you why I quit celebrating
Christmas. Growing up, Christmas was my favorite time
of year. I loved everything about it. The decorations, the food, the family, the
gifts; it was all so beautiful and exciting for me as a child. My love for Christmas continued into adulthood. Every year I looked forward to setting up
the tree, hanging lights on the house, and buying gifts for family and friends. I was so excited about Christmas that I would
start decorating at the beginning of November, and leave them up until the end of January. Christmas was my absolute favorite holiday
because I thought it was the celebration of Jesus birth. Then one day someone told me that Christmas
was originally a Pagan holiday that was adopted by the Church hundreds of years after Jesus
died. I wanted to find out the Truth about Christmas,
so I started doing my own research, and was shocked at what I found out. After doing just a little bit of research
(like looking in an Encyclopedia), I quickly found out that nearly everything about Christmas
comes from Pagan traditions. The tree, holly, mistletoe, tinsel, lights,
gifts, caroling, Santa Claus, and many other popular Christmas traditions all find their
roots in Paganism. I was so disgusted at the Pagan origins of
some of our traditions that I began to weep and repent for my involvement in these things. I felt so deceived, and what made it worse
is that the lies came from people I trusted – my family, friends, and pastor. Then I found out that most preachers know
the Truth about Christmas being a pagan holiday, yet they keep silent about it. Unlike preachers in past who were not afraid
to stand up for the truth. Listen to what Charles Spurgeon had to say
about Christmas in a sermon on Dec 24, 1871. “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 Now every December, Christian parents lie
to their children about Christmas. Telling them Jesus was born on December 25th,
and Santa Claus brings them gifts. These lies are reinforced by the Church, so
it is no wonder our kids are turning away from God as they grow up. They realize that Santa Clause and the Easter
bunny were lies, and they naturally question what they were told about Jesus as well, since
he has been so closely associated with those other fictional and mythical characters. God seeks worshippers who will worship Him
in spirit and in Truth, and we know that Christmas is a lie, so how can we continue to worship
God in this way? I made the decision to stop celebrating Christmas
because I love Jesus, and I hope my testimony has encouraged you to do your own research
about the Pagan origins of Christmas.

  1. Lies i'm a Romanian i know more about Chirstmas! Jesus helped Santa to be come Santa! You are all liers! If u don't agree with me! I won't agree with u too!

  2. Amen to you for standing up against these well routed lies! I too won't be celebrating anything else that the whole world celebrates until Jesus returns…which is soon!

  3. Jesus was born in the Spring, at the same exact time the Passover lambs were being born for their sacrifice.This is why the sheppards were in the fields guarding and assisting the females with birth and how they saw the Star of Bethlehem. Jesus was God's perfect lamb and our sacrifice. Everything about Christmas is satanic as are Easter celebrations, just disguised to mislead everyone which is how satan works to start with.

  4. I wish I wanna stop celebrate christmas but my family didn't want me to do it and I must do because the emptiness overcomed me

  5. Christmas is a Roman invention and has nothing to do with Jesus. Stopped celebrating 5 yrs ago. Is is both a spiritual and historical lie and blinds you to God's prophetic times and seasons. The RCC is known for rewriting history to suit the Vatican's agenda. The Jewish feasts reveal way more about Christ and prophecy. It's blessed me a lot and there is no question which God they are talking about while Christmas seems confused about it's own meaning every year.

    Pagans make fun of Christians for celebrating their holiday, they think we're idiots. If you want to find the real birth date of Jesus you have to use the Hebrew calendar, not our pagan Gregorian calender. The more I studied about this, the more I despised this sham of a holiday. It is designed to distract and hide truth, not explore it. God's feasts are designed to explore his ways especially for kids. Some of them have not been fulfilled yet! Want to find the real birth of Christ? Study the feasts of God. In fact, go celebrate them and have some good food and fellowship while you're at it. They promote a sense of family too.

  6. how are they lying as the gentiles were brought into christians ,that was there birth so and the birth was the same as Jesus being born

  7. Jeremiah chapter 10 in the kjv it convicted my wife and son. This is our first Christmas free year. And we celebrate Christ every day.

  8. Hey I don’t want to celebrate Christmas bc the history of it but what do I do if someone gives me a gift do I throw it away??

  9. People don't read their bibles and are deceived by satan as christians we cannot imitate worldly traditions. The holy spirit will guide us in truth and God speaks to us in his word. Jesus open my eyes .Churches wont say this because they want people to stay and some are all about the money.

  10. What about denying the fact that Jesus was born on that holiday and then just giving gifts and things as such, like I mean if it is not a Christian holiday, could one not celebrate it like New Years of something, where yes it is pagan, but we do not say that it is from Christ. My heart has been very troubled at this and I have been praying lately about it and really meditating on it. God bless, and please pray that when the truth is given to me, I would not turn it away.

  11. You guys are butthurt for the wrong reasons. Christmas is a celebration that brings everyone from all religions to celebrate a christian holiday together. Whether its pagan or not, its a good message. To abstain from it you are just showing the world how un-inviting Christians are and that is not good for our reputation. Negative nansies. Your family didnt lie to you? Its quite bad of you to accuse them of LYING when they probably didn't google it either.

  12. I was in the same boat as many Christians, I too as a kid Loved and adored Christmas. Always looked forward to it and wondering what I was going to get and I Loved it. I Loved giving gifts and cards to church members and gifts to the kids all loved it. But today will be the first that I will NOT celebrate Christmas and I too learned that it was a pagan holiday. Even if I told people that Christmas is pagan they will say that either I'm lying or you just don't have the love for it, My prayer is that all Christians should wake up and learn the truth about Christmas and stop clebrating it as with Easter we should STOP clebrating Easter and Christmas. I pray that Pastors tell their flock about the truth about Easter and Christmas until then.

  13. Most Christians don't follow The Most High. They actually worship JEZEBEL and themselves. Look up the Christian couple that was in church every Sunday singing hymns while they starved a teenage so much that he weighted like 45 – 90 pounds. Church usually has WORLDLY people in it. Remember Christ did NOT teach in a church; he taught in the street. The bible says we will know them by their WORKS.

  14. Glad to see Christians being educated about the lies of your church and faith. Keep digging friends, nearly all of your faith is plagiarized and assimilated from other religions and cultures.
    Jesus story is not new, it's taken from far older sources.
    Moses? Never existed and stolen from older sources.
    Not trying to discourage you. Just wanting to keep you honest. Keep digging up old Faith's, paganism and look up religious beliefs and traditions from older cultures. You'll be surprised. ❤

  15. its a pagans traditiona & is insulting our Lord .. I quit celebrating Dec 25 & Christmas trees .. Catholic pope who made it as Christian holiday ..

  16. Do you hear "Christ" in christmas. We christians "Go tell it on the mountain
    Over the hills and everywhere
    Go tell it on the mountain
    Our Jesus Christ is born."
    Years ago we stole anything that was pagan in this time of year and changed it to celebrate God's love for humankind. Come let us adore Him!

  17. There are still millions of Christians who will continue to prepare for and celebrate the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ. I am one of them. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, thank you for saying yes to God's plan for our salvation. "All generations will call me blessed" Luke 1:48….and so we do.

  18. Jeremiah 10= 1:6 It says: Hear the word which the Lord speaks to you, O house of Israel.

    2Thus says the Lord:

    “Do not learn the way of the Gentiles;

    Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven,

    For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.

    3For the customs of the peoples are [a]futile;

    For one cuts a tree from the forest,

    The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.

    4They decorate it with silver and gold;

    They fasten it with nails and hammers

    So that it will not topple.

    5They are upright, like a palm tree,

    And they cannot speak They must be carried,

    Because they cannot go by themselves.

    Do not be afraid of them,

    For they cannot do evil,

    Nor can they do any good.”

  19. Thank you so so much for this video! I’ve sent it to quite a few family members! Wish you could one day (possibly) get into more detail about the pagan vs Christmas similarities! I would love to watch that!

  20. This is the second year that I don’t celebrate Christmas. I had people from my church come down on me because of it too. Also I have found out that there are Pastor’s who know that this is a pagan holiday however yet they still teach and preach and churches still have Christmas plays continuing the lie.

  21. People can't stand the truth! I worship Christ everyday…..However, I taught all four of my kids THE TRUTH! December 25th is not in the bible and never will be- Worship HIM in all honesty- HE gets pleased with that.

  22. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas or you do you're still worshipping a pagan God
    Feel sorry for y'all

  23. Not just because it biblically outlawed or you could say blasphemy. But it has nothing to do with Christ whatsoever. So whoever says they celebrate Christmas because they love Jesus take a look around all of the decorations have nothing to do with Jesus but everything to do with Biblical idols. So the answer to this should Christians celebrate Christmas the answer biblically is no same thing for Halloween New Year's Eve Valentine's Day Halloween Samhain and the rest of them and their, holy days

  24. My fiance booked a trip for me that lands on Christmas. We didnt plan to have our trip over the Christmas holiday and we were just so excited about the trip. Now I'm looking back thinking God allowed this on purpose and maybe wants me to get used to not celebrating this holiday.

  25. Hello my family enjoy your videos. Can you please answer this question –
    when someone tells you the below scriptures and in reading them it is
    ok to celebrate Valentines day, Easter, Christmas etc. what do you say
    about the scriptures after reading them?
    "One person regards one day above another, another regards every day
    alike. Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind. He who
    observes the day, observes it for the Lord" (Romans 14:5-6).

    "Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather determine
    this—not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother’s way. I
    know and am convinced in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in
    itself; but to him who thinks anything to be unclean, to him it is
    unclean" (Romans @-14).

  27. So does for trinity.
    Jesus never said it.
    Early bibles never mentioned it.

    On the other hand, Makkah and Prophet Mohamed was mentioned in the Bible.

    There is only one God.
    Jesus and Mohammed are his prophets

  28. You know how you place the star at the top on the pyrami- I mean tree? Are people unknowingly placing Lucifer's star back? He was referred to as "morning star" before he fell.

  29. Since young, I was taught that on Christmas we should remember about Jesus’s birth and not that it was exactly the date that Jesus was born. No one knows when Jesus was born and so on Christmas we take the time to remember his birth and celebrate about it.

  30. This is my first year not celebrating Christmas. I loved it. Like you say, decorating, Santa, giving gifts, and people are nicer during Christmas.
    But there is no way Jesus would approve of it. Im so dissappointed in churches pushing Satan's deception. Like there is not enough already. I miss joining in.

  31. Well I feel bad for you buddy. I'll be celebrating Christmas. While everyone is with their family's your gonna be alone. Have a happy Merry Christmas dude or whatever you celebrate. lol what a loser.

  32. Daniel 7:25 prophesied that satan will try to change the laws of God. And he did. Instead of keeping the Passover which Christ established for us to receive eternal life, now everyone celebrates christmas that comes from Roman emperor Constantine who is pagan. So "Prophecy is Fulfilled"

  33. I have stopped celebrating Christmas a long time, when God speaks I have to listen. Where in the Bible could you find the date of Jesus birth . likewise Thanksgiving, do they know the true meaning of Thanksgiving. It's not about the parades. GIVE THANKS TO JEHOVAH GOD! Giving thanks is everyday. Amen.

  34. Christmas isnt pagan, it has been celebrated and chronicled through time back to the early church. Celebrated by kings and queens, shakesphere, king arthur, etc. Kept safe by christians and for christians.

  35. I've come out of Babylon and the practices Christmas is a lie a very dressed up festive lie…with all the trimmings. I desire the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth my eternal life is at stake if I walk otherwise…for the enemy is the father of lies.

  36. I have not celebrated Christmas for the last 20 years it's all FAKE cause Jesus was not born on the 25th December. It's called YULE TIDE Look it up on Wikipedia.

  37. Leviticus 23 are God's holy days and the seventh day Sabbath is the start. Some ministers know the truth but most are all about the Benjamins.

  38. Christmas is an opportunity to tell people about Christ it doesn’t matter you celebrating it or not the Bible says may you never be condemn by anyone by any holiday. Stop referring everything to paganism.

  39. So why ruin it for everybody else. Christmas is a beautiful celebration. Just because some people don't realize the true meaning, doesn't mean it's like that for everyone. Jesus coming to earth is a ginormous event. He literally split time in half. It should be a huge celebration. Your criticisms are not 100% spot on. Jesus was placed in a tree at birth, worked with trees as a carpenter and died on a tree. Trees are a perfectly appropriate symbol for Jesus. Scripture calls Him the BRANCH. We know he was actually born in September. So He had to have been placed in Mary in December. I know how annointed and miraculous the holiday is. I also know how open people are to talking about Jesus during this holiday. You can stay a self-righteous curmudgeon if you want. Dickens wrote about the spirit of society's Ebenezer Scrooges. I plan on enjoying all the beauty, peace and we wonder of this special time despite attempts of you miserable people to ruin it.

  40. December 25 isn't Christ's birth date. It's a lie, same goes for that what you call Three Kings, wherein bible said they were WISE MEN.

    Why they celebrate it? Read Mark Chapter 7 verses 7 to 9.

  41. We tell them the truth and tell them that we can PRETEND that Santa/tooth faierie etc. is real. Just like we pretend to believe in super heros. We explain the spirit of x-mas and the history of things and that we can participate thru play. It works! They love it! It's no different in terms of "keeping magic alive"! Perfect middle ground!

  42. One big lie is that his name is not Jesus its YAHUSHA that name means Salvation thier was no j when the new Testament was writen we ve been lieded to about alot of things!! J IS ONLY 500 YEARS OLD LOOK IT UP

  43. It’s a time of cruelty to animals and wasteful dumping of garbage more than any other time of year.

    Religion is bathed in hypocrisy.

  44. Growing up in a strict Christian family I never celebrated Christmas my whole life
    We were always made fun of by other christian denominations but we never stopped as it is clearly said in the bible not to idol worship God. These festivities r created by the namesake christians who just want to design the celebration as per their own wishes.

  45. God works in mysterious ways🙏🏾 some people only hear the word of God during these holidays that’s when some people attend church so God reaches people that way

  46. I Stopped Celebrating Christmas … When Pastor Jennings Said Santa knows When you're sleeping or Wake… he knows whose been good or bad.. he has a list and checks it twice…Santa is Satan… Only God Knows Everything… God is a Jealous God and I Only Serve 1 and his Name is Jesus…🙏🏽💜🙏🏽

  47. Wow,I'm with you all I stopped celebrating Christmas 20 years ago and sometimes am thought badly of because of my true belief in Christ! God bless!

  48. I just figured this out on why my friend did not celebrate Xmas and Santa is satan in anagram and I was just shocked idk what to to if god will forgive me or not

  49. This year I forced myself to go through the motions…this is my first year being awake and aware. I'm absolutely disgusted and CANNOT do it again.

  50. So 44 seconds in you begin to wonder if its about Jesus Birth? DUHH _ what about "O little town of Bethlehem" – or "Emmanual" – it seems that are all about the Birth of Christ – hence Christmas? Did GOD Himself NOT celebrate the birth of Christ in Lk 2? Did the early church NOT spread the message of Christ and Christmas across the Roman empire by AD 70?

  51. BY :51 -BY now you have delved into deliberate lies – NO pagan festivals were were connected to Christmas – and it was NOT 100's of years – IT was NOT a HUNDRED years – it was intertwined with the spreading of the message of Christ across the Roman empire – so much so that TWO copycat Roman pagan religions were founded using Christmas as a part of their culture – Mythacism by AD 70.

    Where do you get these easily disproven nonsense?. WHY are you so willing to follow the deception of satan to remove the mentions of Christ and Christmas from the public consciousness?

    YOUR statement is a lie. YOU present no support for that lie. Naturally!!

  52. 1:08 – so looking for truth you went to secular/catholic/fiction – NOT Christian sources – source that regurgitate the Catholic/fictional deception that THEY adopted pagan customs and created Christmas – hundreds of years after Christ?

    WHY not read the early church fathers instead – and see what CHRISTIANS say about the greatest event in Human history – one satan has spent 2000 years trying to hide with lies and deceit – all of which you bought into. And here you are helping spread his message.

  53. 1:37 – you felt deceived? What about those that actually watch the evidence of your current deception?

    I have serious doubts that it was GOD bringing you to the point of attacking Christmas – satan is just as/more likely – since he is the ONLY one with a reason to attack Chrirtmas – and you seem to enjoy working WITH him.

    God would never attack something he Himself celbrated . . .

  54. SO you willingly lie/slander and state that most pastors know Chrisrtmas is pagan? Have you no shame?

    YOU liowe and involve others in those lies? And Spurgeon was a man – a man of many faults – he enjoyed cigars – so much so that one brand used his picture and likenes – stating – they were Spurgeon's Favorite Cigars . . .

    Men are mortal – and all are sinners – so his opinion is infallable, WHY?

  55. 2:32 – YOUR misuse of Spurgeon's statement is deception at its finest . . . and selected to reinforce the lie you WANT to make – BUT the while contexts refuted it . . . so again you lie and deceive . . .and you seem not to be interested at all in TRUTH.

    Spurgeon ended that thouighgt with this statement – which in youre intent to decieve the weak and the ignorant – you intentionally left out – even though it is the refutation to your false misuse:

    "Nevertheless since, the current of men’s thoughts is led this way just now, and I see no evil in the current itself, I shall launch the bark of our discourse upon that stream, and make use of the fact, which I shall neither justify nor condemn, by endeavoring to lead your thoughts in the same direction. Since it is lawful, and even laudable, to meditate upon the incarnation of the Lord upon any day in the year, it cannot be in the power of other men’s superstitions to render such a meditation improper for to-day. Regarding not the day, let us, nevertheless, give God thanks for the gift of His dear Son.”

    WHY would you intetionally deceive you viewers? And UNLIKE you I cite my sources – you could never cite your souces – fore they are largely MISQUOTES

    While at that time Spurgeon may have been unaware – ignorant – of the evidence for Christ's Birth and its date – its unreasonable to make him say its Pagan – when he didn't – much of his aversion was to the catholic connection as he stated in your reading. Basing your use of his words when he was OBVUIOUSLY un or MIS informed of the historical evidence is inexcusable. Its journalistic assassination. Its deliberate lying.

  56. YOU have obviouly N O use at all for truth. . . Another quote from Spurgon that destroys your MISuse of his quotation on Christmas:

    "In December of 1855 he preached on “The Incarnation and Birth of Christ” from Micah 5:2. His opening words were these:

    THIS is the season of the year when, whether we wish it or not, we are compelled to think of the birth of Christ. I hold it to be one of the greatest absurdities under heaven to think that there is any religion in keeping Christmas-day. There are no probabilities whatever that our Savior Jesus Christ was born on that day and the observance of it is purely of Popish origin; doubtless those who are Catholics have a right to hallow it, but I do not see how consistent Protestants can account it in the least sacred. However, I wish there were ten or a dozen Christmas-days in the year; for there is work enough in the world, and a little more rest would not hurt laboring people. Christmas-day is really a boon to us, particularly as it enables us to assemble round the family hearth and meet our friends once more. Still, although we do not fall exactly in the track of other people, I see no harm in thinking of the incarnation and birth of the Lord Jesus. We do not wish to be classed with those

    “Who with more care keep holiday
    The wrong, than others the right way.”

  57. Since you deliberatly misuse Spurgeon in your lie about Christmas – here's another quotation from him- again destroying your misuse of your pervious quote:

    "In the same vein Spurgeon preached a message entitled, “Mary’s Song,” based on Luke 1:46-47 (#606, MTP). In it he says,

    Observe, this morning, the sacred joy of Mary that you may imitate it. This is a season when all men expect us to be joyous. We compliment each other with the desire that we may have a “Merry Christmas.” Some Christians who are a little squeamish, do not like the word “merry.” It is a right good old Saxon word, having the joy of childhood and the mirth of manhood in it, it brings before one’s mind the old song of the waits, and the midnight peal of bells, the holly and the blazing log. I love it for its place in that most tender of all parables, where it is written, that, when the long-lost prodigal returned to his father safe and sound, “They began to be merry.” This is the season when we are expected to be happy; and my heart’s desire is, that in the highest and best sense, you who are believers may be “merry.” Mary’s heart was merry within her; but here was the mark of her joy, it was all holy merriment, it was every drop of it sacred mirth. It was not such merriment as worldlings will revel in to-day and to-morrow, but such merriment as the angels have around the throne, where they sing, “Glory to God in the highest,” while we sing “On earth peace, goodwill towards men.” Such merry hearts have a continual feast. I want you, ye children of the bride-chamber, to possess to-day and to-morrow, yea, all your days, the high and consecrated bliss of Mary, that you may not only read her words, but use them for yourselves, ever experiencing their meaning: “My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior.”"

    SO you lied again . . .

  58. In ancient times, Christmas was celebrated at the same time a pagan festivity was celebrated to mimic and to draw their interest to this Christian holiday. The Bible did not mention
    an exact date or how we celebrate. But we cannot dispute Jesus birth. It is narrated in the Bible. Luke 1:31, 35., Luke 2:7, 10. The term Christmas is a coined word "Christ" the Greek
    word for the anointed one and the Hebrew word for the promised messiah., and "mas" referring to the Catholics "eucharist" meaning the celebration of his sacrificial death.
    We cannot separate His birth from His sacrificial death because that's the reason he came.  Gift giving is based on the 3 wise men giving gifts to Jesus. and God gave His Son
    to the world. The other trimmings are just products of the imagination how to celebrate the occasion of Jesus birth to make it more fun and joyous. You can choose to celebrate or not.
    But Christmas is a unifying holiday for all Christians to remind us of the true meaning that "the Word became flesh and dwelt among us". To celebrate is to honour the Lord's birth.

  59. Everyday belong to Jesus. He makes everyday. Yes we really don't know when Jesus was born, but it's fun to celebrate Jesus on this day like everyday. We do not celebrate santa. My family celebrates CHRISTmas. We exchange gifts, go to church and spend time with family. Just because I celebrate Jesus birth on Dec.25th doesn't mean I'm pagan. I'm a born again Christian baptized in The Holy Spirit. If we put Him first that's all that matters. The Lord put us on this earth to live and enjoy our lives. But that's everyone's right to not celebrate. God bless you all❤

  60. The Lord Jesus wishes you are hot or cold. Because you are lukewarm, He will spew you out. Christmas celebration is not celebrating the birth of Lord Jesus but the work of the devil. Decorating a tree with silver and gold was long been celebrated since the days of Jeremiah. Birthday celebration is paganism. Only king herod celebrated birthday in the Books of the Testimony of the Lord Jesus. Lord Jesus said FOLLOW ME. Lord Jesus live holy life on the basis of the Law of Moses. He celebrated the Passover and the Feast of Tabernacle. If you want to enter the Kingdom of God, you need to come out from living pagan and live holy life on the basis of the Law of Moses, OR YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD. God is holy; No one can see God unless he is holy. The Lord God of Israel sent the Law of Moses and Lord Jesus to teach His people about holy life so that they can enter His Kingdom and meet Him.

    Jeremiah 10

    Thus says the Lord:

    “Do not learn the way of the Gentiles;

    Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven,

    For the Gentiles are dismayed at them.

    3 For the customs of the peoples are [a]futile;

    For one cuts a tree from the forest,

    The work of the hands of the workman, with the ax.

    4 They decorate it with silver and gold;

    They fasten it with nails and hammers

    So that it will not topple.

    5 They are upright, like a palm tree,

    And they cannot speak;

    They must be carried,

    Because they cannot go by themselves.

    Do not be afraid of them,

    For they cannot do evil,

    Nor can they do any good.”

    Mark 6:21

    Then an opportune day came when Herod on his birthday gave a feast for his nobles, the high officers, and the chief men of Galilee.

    It is now evil time and the devil is working heavily to deceive this world so that those who love lies and did not obey the truth may be condemned.

    2 Thessalonians 2

    The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    The Spirit and the bride,

    Mount Zion, the Heavenly Jerusalem

    Hebrews 12
