Know The Answer?
Who am I: I was appointed to represent the might of Rome as a Roman procurator of Judea in AD 26-36. The greatest failure of my career was my holding a trial. I chose expediency above principle.

Did you know that Christmas was observed by pagans 2000 years before the birth of Jesus Christ? - that neither the apostles nor the inspired New Testament Church observed it? Here are the astounding FACTS! IT WILL come as a shocking surprise. You probably have never noticed it before, but it is true! In the New Testament is amazing proof - almost totally overlooked - that CHRISTMAS and other pagan holidays were cleverly introduced into the Christian Church IN THE DAYS OF THE APOSTLES. And proof that the apostles were inspired to FORBID Christians to observe them! It is time you looked to see WHAT IS RECORDED IN YOUR VERY OWN BIBLE! How, then, did Christmas - now revealed as an ancient pagan holiday celebrated 2000 years before the birth of Christ - creep into the Christianity of this Western World? And DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE if you observe it? Consider! Your eternal destiny depends upon the answer!
