12-15-2016 Getting Jesus Right-Birth Date

The New Testament writers, “did not follow cunningly devised fables” (2 Peter 1:16 NKJV) when they wrote about Jesus Christ.  A “fable” is a “myth, fairy tale, or falsehood.” “And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn” (Luke 2:7 NKJV).  Shepherds were told: “For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11 NKJV).  “And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger” (Luke 2:16 NKJV).  They praised “God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them” (Luke 2:20 NKJV).  The day of His birth is given, a date of December 25 was not.  Going beyond God’s Word is unscriptural!

6-18-2015 A “Myth-stake” !

Paul left Timothy in Ephesus to “charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies” (1 Timothy 1:3-4 NKJV). A “fable” is a fictitious story which lacks facts to establish it. The Egyptian, Persian, Grecian, and Roman gods and goddesses were pure “mythology.” Aesop’s Fables, “Frozen,” Pinocchio, Superman, Santa Claus, Link, Lara Croft, Evolution and Climate Change are also “myths.” When children’s minds are filled and shaped by these “myths,” they can’t function well in the “real world.” God condemned false prophets who claimed “I have dreamed,” and “who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal” (Jeremiah 23:25-27 NKJV). The facts of God are crowded out by fantasies!
