  11. I thank you do much for amazing sabbath lessons we always have. Every week. Am a catholic but I have two f closest friends of mine who are Adventist and they always share with me lessons from the sabbath school.
    It is my hope that one day I should be one of your members because I have leant the bible truth.
    One of the things which I have come across is the issue of t christmass. To my knowledge which ihavel learnt from my friends. Is that christmass is pagan and why have you also started practing this pagan belielf. Please stic to the word of truth .never follow paganism Because Jesus Christ is coming soon. Never sale the church to the devil.
    Every good example which I have seen is christmass song which your church has done at the general conference. Together with the president Ted wison ,please I pray that you should stick to the love of God not love of the pagans

    Amen!(8)
    • Hi Pamela,

      We are glad that you are enjoying our Bible lessons.

      Please realize that the Seventh-day Adventist Church does not observe Christmas as a religious festival.

      However, most of us recognize the secular Christmas holiday season as a good time to remember the birth of Jesus Christ which reveals to us the love of God. That is not a "pagan" practice. We need not focus on Satan and paganism when we remember the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Focusing on Satan and paganism would be selling out to the devil, and we do not wish to do that.

      To put things in perspective, we need to remember that the meaning of symbols change over time. Nearly all things have been part of paganism some time in the past. Every day of the week is named for a pagan God. But that's not what we think of today. We only recognize the names of the week as specifying a certain day of the week, and that is fine. The same is true for the Christmas season. Even though there was at one time a pagan festival close to the same time (but not on the same date) as Christmas is celebrated now, that's not what comes to mind today when people think of Christmas. Most people think of this as a family holiday - a time to get together with loved ones, and that's not a bad thing at all. Additionally, this is a time of year that even secular people are more generous and open to think about the birth of our Savior, and that is surely a very good thing.

      Please do not let past pagan history distract you from focusing on Jesus Christ not only during the Christmas season but also on every other day of the year - even though these days are named after heathen deities.

      [Note to our readers: Please do not take this as an invitation to submit arguments that Christmas is a heathen festival. Such comments will not be published.]

      Amen!(8)
  12. To all Yehovah's Servants who have enabled me to access these great & wonderful resources online, Thank you for your time to have the resources online. Apart from my Bible your resources are at my fingertips to access to help me with the study of the Word of God. I really love the song the Sabbath School on Hope sings! I'd love to teach it to our children @ school! A great song! Thank You and God's abundant blessings to you all.

    Amen!(7)
