When is God’s birthday? This is a question that has puzzled theologians for centuries. Some say that it is Jesus’ birthday, which would make it December 25th. Others say that it isn’t actually Jesus’ birthday, and the date of Christmas was chosen to coincide with pagan celebrations. In this blog post, we will take a look at the history of Christmas and explore when God’s birthday might actually be!
Christmas is a holiday that is celebrated all over the world. It is a time when families come together to celebrate, exchange gifts, and eat delicious food. But what is the origin of Christmas? And more importantly, what is God’s birthday?
Truly a question that has baffled many even until today. However, there must lies an answer to every question, even just the slightest. Today, we will be giving you everything we know about God’s birthday!
There are many different theories about when God’s birthday is. Is it really God’s birthday or was it only due to celebrate alongside pagan celebrations? The mystery continues, and we’ll take a closer look at all of these theories and give you an answer to the question.
The Theory Behind Jesus’ Birthday
The theory that Jesus’ birthday is God’s birthday is based on the Bible passage in Luke chapter two, where it says: “And she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.” (NIV) This passage is often used to argue that Jesus’ birthday is Christmas.
However, there are also many arguments against this theory. For example, the Bible does not say explicitly that Jesus’ birthday is God’s birthday. In fact, it is possible that Jesus wasn’t actually born on December 25th. Additionally, many of the customs associated with Christmas, such as gift-giving and decorating trees, are not found in the Bible.
The Theory Behind Pagan Celebrations
The theory that Christmas was chosen to coincide with pagan celebrations is based on the fact that many of the customs associated with Christmas are similar to pagan celebrations. For example, both Christians and pagans celebrate winter solstice, which is the shortest day of the year. Additionally, some pagan religions believed that December 25th was the birthday of a god or goddess.
However, there are also arguments against this theory. For example, many of the customs associated with Christmas were not practiced by pagans in ancient times. Additionally, even if December 25th was chosen to coincide with pagan celebrations, it doesn’t mean God wasn’t born on that day! It just means that people wanted to celebrate his birthday along with other gods’ birthdays.
Both theories have major pros and cons, and reasonably so. The fact that the Bible never really mentioned God’s birthday is baffling, nor does celebrating it with other gods’ birthdays.
However, the 25th of December has always been one of the most important dates in the history of the world. Regardless of that date being God’s birthday, there must be an event that we can celebrate His life through coming together, gift-giving, and sharing His word.
There’s no real answer to when God’s birthday is. However, we have still managed to pass down His beliefs, do it gracefully, and share it to the world. If that is so, then we must always celebrate every day like it is God’s birthday.
The lack of evidence to answer this question sure leaves a bad taste in a lot of mouths, but we must learn to live with what has been given. Celebrate God’s birthday today, tomorrow, and all the days after that—if that’s what means to share love in all ways. Maybe you can decorate trees for fun? Cue up some “Jingle Bells” while you’re at it. It doesn’t always have to be as extravagant as you think.
