Tiss is the season for lying  Fa la la, la la la, la la la.,

Is it ok to lie to your children?

Experts agree that this sort of situational bending of the truth isn't likely to harm your child. In fact, she probably won't even notice.

Every lie is two lies — the lie we tell others and the lie we tell ourselves to justify it. ~Robert Brault,

Those who think it is permissible to tell white lies soon grow color-blind. ~Austin O'Malley

A lie may take care of the present, but it has no future. ~Author Unknown

God sees you when you're sleeping
God knows when you're awake

God knows if you've been good or Bad
So be good for goodness sake!
 

In Ezekiel, as part of the sun god worship that had infected the Jerusalem temple, we find the "women weeping for Tammuz" (Ezekiel 8:14) because the Babylonian sun god had died as a young deity. As part of the demonic ritual, his death was honored on his birthday which coincided with the Winter Solstice. The idolatry of sun worship is closely identified with this seasonal period when the sun begins to stay in the sky longer.

The birth of Tammuz was December 25th, and to commemorate his death, the people would cut down a young evergreen tree (which causes the death of the tree) and decorate it with bright ornaments and candles. The star placed at the top of the tree is related to Ashtaroth - the star goddess mother of Tammuz (Attis to the Phoenicians,Adonis to the Greeks, Osirus to the Egyptians, etc). The practice goes back at least 2,500 years before Jesus Christ was born. Needless to say, Jesus was not born in December. 

Over 500 years before the time of Jesus, the prophet Jeremiah wrote:

"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. For the customs of the peoples are vain; for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of his hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright like the palm tree, but speak not; they must needs be borne, because they cannot go."

The ritual of the decoration of a "christmas tree" is descended from the worship of the groves in the Old Testament (Judges 3:7), the practice of Wicca (ancient Witchcraft) in the middle ages, and the Druids (child sacrifice) in more recent times. Over the years, whenever I've pointed this out to "Christians" that "celebrate" the holy day, virtually every one of them will justify their involvement with a variety of rationalizations. Sometimes they seek to `Christianize' the practice with a manger scene under the idolatrous tree - usually saying something to the effect of "Jesus has changed all that." Another favorite is "Oh, I know it has dark origins, but the kids love it and the tree smells so good."

Ezekiel also noted the fragrance associated with the ritual tree when the Lord warned how those that He was about to destroy "put the branch to their nose" (Ezekiel 8:17). As my family and "Christian" friends continue to stubbornly defend the christmas tree practice through the hardness of their hearts, I've learned they will ultimately seal their justification of honoring the Devil by summarily dismissing the subject (and me) with the catch phrase it doesn't mean that to me.

Bible Verses connected to the celebration of Easter

Jude 1 Contend for the Faith
3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. 4For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
 
 Matthew 15 Defilement Comes from Within
 3 He answered and said to them, “Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? 4For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; a and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’b 5But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God”— 6then he need not honor his father or mother.’c Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. 7Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:8‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. 9And in vain they worship Me,
 
 2 Kings 16 Ahaz Reigns in Judah 4And he sacrificed and burned incense on the high places, on the hills, and under every green tree.

 2 Kings 17:9 Also the children of Israel secretly did against the Lord their God things that were not right, and they built for themselves high places in all their cities, from watchtower to fortified city. 10They set up for themselves sacred pillars and wooden images a on every high hill and under every green tree.

Deuteronomy 12   A Prescribed Place of Worship

 2 You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree

 Deuteronomy 12 A Prescribed Place of Worship

 John 844You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

 1 Kings 11 Jeroboam’s Rebellion

33 because they havea forsaken Me, and worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the people of Ammon, and have not walked in My ways to do what is right in My eyes and keep My statutes and My judgments, as did his father David.

Deuteronomy 4 Moses Commands Obedience

2You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. 3Your eyes have seen what the Lord did at Baal Peor; for the Lord your God has destroyed from among you all the men who followed Baal of Peor.
