September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Vatican Readies for Christmas with 82-Foot Tree

The Vatican kicked off the Christmas season Monday with a 82-foot tree in St. Peter's Square.
         
Roman Catholic Church officials say the tree signifies the joy of the Nativity. The tree tradition was started by Pope John Paul II.

"The Christmas tree is a symbol of eternal life for Christians. It's green, and when the lights that are on it reminds us of Christ bringing light into the darkness of the world," Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Philadelphia explained.

"So, as we prepare for Christmas we put up our trees, but it is also important we put up our hearts with reception of Christ again in a more serious and intense way," he added.
     
The tree, donated by the Ukraine, will be lit be lit during a ceremony on Dec. 16.

Really? In what way? The so called romanized "nativity" scene didnt happen any ways and is a lie to start with.

That is 1 big huge reason not to participate.

"The Christmas tree is a symbol of eternal life for Christians.

For Christians? I dont think so. This was a Pagan belief that predated Christ visitation on Earth. It represented life to the pagans as it was green all year around and didnt die in the winter months.

It's green

got ahead of myslef.  Cheesy Wink

That right there is right out of the pagan beliefs thta are associated with the xmas tree. The gods dying in the winter battling darkness and being reborn to bring the light back for the new year. This is 100% pagan belief and has no basis in the Bible what so ever.

So, as we prepare for Christmas we put up our trees,

There is a reason the puritans banned this Holiday.

Jer 10:2   Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, 

Right there for all to see, Learn not the way of the heathen and that is what this is. This is all from the pagan heathens. I didnt even post the part about trees and dressing them up as you cant get past the first part there. Learn not the way of the heathen solves almost all of the xmas problems. As all of the traditions are of pagan heathen origin.

Jer 10:2   Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 
Jer 10:3   For the customs of the people [are] vain: for [one] cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 
Jer 10:4   They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 
Jer 10:5   They [are] upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also [is it] in them to do good. 


woops...

8   Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. 
9   But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? 
10   Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. 
11   I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
Galatians 4:8-11 (KJB)

The Christmas tree is a symbol of eternal life for our Christians people and it's sign of peace. It is  a traditional way to buy a new tree in every Christmas and i prefer to buy this tree through online tree farm. 

Show us the scripture where that comes from please. My bible says it's a pagan tradition of men.

Real Christians don't celebrate xmas, or any other pagan/secular holidays.
