I hadn't heard the Jeremiah verse before;
10 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 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. 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. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not."
God himself is talking about a Christmas tree, what else could he possibly mean by this?! So had a quick look at Christian sites to see what they say about using a pagan tree, a tree that god has SPECIFICALLY told Christians not to use; 'Oh no, God didn't mean a Christmas tree you silly thing! He meant a tree that the pagans worship!'
That's a Christmas tree you idiots! Look around you; who else fills their homes with trees decked with gold and silver?
And this is what I find is so irritating about Christians; they feel free to 'interpret' the bible to mean whatever they want, not what their god wants, what they want. A verse in the bible telling them specifically not to get involved with trees decorated with gold and silver, and what do they do? For a tenth of the year they festoon their homes with trees decorated with gold and silver.
'Oh but we don't worship the trees!' Really? Then you won't miss them in your homes or churches at Christmas. After all, what if God's real and you're just pissing him off? Why take the chance? (to use one of your own arguments).
