    Ano ang Pasko-Saan Galing ito? Tuklasin natin!

    What is this - Christmas?

    The word Christmas comes from the words Cristes maesse, or "Christ's Mass." Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus for members of the Christian religion. Most historians peg the first celebration of Christmas to Rome in 336 A.D.
    Celebrating Christmas - Is This Possible?

    While you may find this strange, we have received letters asking about the permissibility of allowing Muslim children and adults to join along Christians in celebrating Christmas; giving gifts, decorating their homes, lighting candles, putting up Christmas trees and lights and greeting each other with "Merry Christmas."
    No candles? * No Christmas tree * No sleigh? * No reindeer? * No mistletoe? * No bells? * No elves? * No stockings by the chimney? * No Christmas Carols * & NO SANTA CLAUS?

    Let us consider some important facts about this occasion and what it really means:
    Christmas - For Muslims??
    By A Loving Muslim brother

    I was a Christain for many years, and I used to get really upset when people took the "Christ" out of Christmas, and I could not imagine why people would let all of this gross commercialism overwhelm the remembrance of the birth of Christ Jesus. So, it came as a great surprise, in my little world, to learn this was from the Solstice celebration, and had been going on for hundreds of years before the time of Jesus. Also, we find no evidence Jesus was even born in the month of December (and in fact, it becomes obvious from close study of the Bible he was not even born in the year claimed to be 2,006 years ago.
    Let's consider some very important evidence about the event called "Christmas":
    No proof for his birth in December - nor for exactly 2006 years ago for that matter. New Testament claims he was born during the reign of King Herod. He was already dead 6 years before.
    No proof for Christmas trees - actually, the Bible (Jeremiah 10) forbids the act of cutting down trees or holly or anything and then taking it into the house and decorating it up.
    Nothing about Santa Claus except a bishop who attended the Council of Nicea in 325 A. D. named, Saint Nicholas who was generous with money and used it to help a man get his two older daughters married off by throwing a bag of silver into their open window for their dowry (women paid men - the opposite of the dowry system of Islam), thus earning himself the title of St. Nick.
    There can be no absolute proof of the particulars and details surrounding all of the many factors coming together in Rome in 325 A.D. (after Christ's birth), in order to establish with certainty, Jesus Christ was born on December 25, as mentioned.

    Solstice Celebrations:

    From Babylon to Rome , for thousands of years, virtually every culture has had some sort of celebration for the solstice. The winter solstice is the darkest, shortest day of the year, and since it marks the time at which the glorious light returns, the solstice has long been an occasion for great celebration and rejoicing.
    On the surface, the solstice celebration is often a rejoicing of the return of the sun with the promise of the greening of the earth and the warming of the days. But on a deeper spiritual level, the solstice celebration honors the birth and rebirth of the glorious Holy Light which guides and sustains all of creation, the One Light that illuminates every heart and promises new growth, the warmth of loving-kindness and the brilliance of illumination to all of mankind.
    The sun god Mithra (Mithra in Persian, Mitra in Sanskrit) was highly honored and well known across the entire region from India to Rome . In the ancient Vedic hymns of India , Mitra is often invoked together with Varuna so that the two are combined as 'Mitravaruna' : Varuna is lord of the cosmic rhythm of the celestial spheres, while Mitra brings forth the light at dawn, which was covered by Varuna.
    In the Zoroastrian religion, the sun-god Mithra was highly honored as a major deity, and interestingly, the birth of Mithra is celebrated at the eve of the winter solstice called Shab-e Yalda in Farsi (Persian).
    The Romans had a great number of temples dedicated to Mithra, and the winter solstice celebration dedicated to the sun god Mithra was indeed a major event in their lives.
    In the ancient world, much of the day to day life was centered on a keen awareness of the sun, the stars and the seasons. For thousands of years, the return of the sun at the time of the winter solstice has been a time of good cheer and great celebration, both secular and spiritual.

    Early Christians:
    The early Christians did not celebrate the birth of Jesus. The early church fathers Origen (d.255), St. Irenaeus (d. 202), and Tertullian (d. 220) do not include Christmas or its date on their lists of feasts and celebrations.

    In fact, nobody really knows when Jesus was born. Church father Clement of Alexandria tells us that certain theologians had claimed to have determined not only the year of the Jesus' birth but also the day; that it took place in the 28th year of Augustus and on the 25th day of Pachon (May 20) (Stromata, I, 21). He also added that others said that he was born on the 24th or 25th of Pharmuthi (April 19 or 20). Another piece of evidence is De Paschae Computus of 243, which states that Jesus was born on March 28.
    Many modern scholars, using the details given in the bible, suggest that Jesus' birthday was likely before October or after March. So, although we don't know when Jesus was born, it seems quite unlikely that it was on December 25th.

    The Church In Rome :
    The early church fathers in Rome were perhaps feeling a bit left out by all the celebrations that were going on at the time of the Solstice. It's all too difficult to control people who are busy celebrating for just any old reason.

    It was not at all common in those days to celebrate a person's birthday, but something drastic had to be done to get the church into the celebration. So, in order to eclipse the solstice celebration of the sun god Mithra, in the middle of the 4th century after CE, the newly converted Emperor Constantine declared December 25th to be the official birthday of Jesus.

    Within a few years, the altars of the temples of Mithra had been destroyed and the temples were quickly rededicated to the activities of the church of Rome. Just that suddenly, the winter solstice which was perhaps the greatest celebration known to the ancient world, was transformed into a matter of church doctrine.
    In later years, the English gave this celebration the name Cristes msse, literally, Christ's mass... and from that we have inherited the word Christmas.

    Now...
    We see clearly, Christmas as it is celebrated today is not something associated with Judaism or Islam in their original teachings. We must ask the question, "If the prophets of Allah and their people did not engage in such acts of pagan worship, then why should we?"
    Our prophet, peace be upon him, ordered us to refrain from following in the footsteps of those who had gone astray before us.

    hanggan kailan tayo magbubulagbulagan, magbingi-bingihan at walang naririnig !!!!!?????

    unang patunay na kailan man hindi itinuro ang pagdiriwang ng mga lakad ng ibang bansa siguro naman kasi galing ito sa mga relihiyosong pagano kaya ayaw ng ganito ang mga Propeta noon.
    basaa kapatid.......

    Christmas Tree

    Jermiah 10:2 Ganito ang sabi ng Panginoon, Huwag kayong matuto ng lakad ng mga bansa, at huwag kayong manganglupaypay sa mga tanda ng langit; sapagka't ang mga bansa ay nanganglulupaypay sa mga yaon.

    Jeremiah 10:3 Sapagka't ang mga kaugalian ng mga bayan ay walang kabuluhan: sapagka't may pumuputol ng punong kahoy sa gubat, na siyang gawa ng mga kamay ng manggagawa sa pamamagitan ng palakol.

    Jeremiah 10:4 Kanilang ginagayakan ng pilak at ng ginto; kanilang ikinakapit ng mga pako at ng mga pamukpok, upang huwag makilos.
    Jeremiah 10:5 Sila'y gaya ng puno ng palma, na binilog, at hindi nagsasalita: kinakailangang pasanin, sapagka't hindi makalakad. Huwag ninyong katakutan ang mga yaon, sapagka't hindi makagagawa ng kasamaan, ni wala ring magagawang mabuti.

    [004:163] Verily, We have sent the Revelation to you (O Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) as We sent the Revelation to Nh (Noah) and the Prophets after him; We (also) sent the Revelation to Ibrhm (Abraham), Ism'l (Ishmael), Ishq (Isaac), Ya'qb (Jacob), and Al-Asbt [the offspring of the twelve sons of Ya'qb (Jacob)], 's (Jesus), Ayyub (Job), Ynus (Jonah), Hrn (Aaron), and Sulaimn (Solomon); and to Dwd (David) We gave the Zabr (Psalms).

    Siguro nga, mali ang petsa ng Pasko. Pero may tanong lang ako. Ano ba ang tingin mo sa Diyos/Allah/Yahweh etc. mo? Isa nga lang ba Siyang misteryo na kailangan mong pagaralan at. paniwalaan sa mga naiwan nyang sulat at aral na naitala? O kailangan mo Siyang kilalanin at bigyan ng napakataas na lugar sa puso mo bukot pa sa pananampalataya at pagaaral tungkol sa Kanya?

    Siguro tama lang na maging matalino tayo at lalo natin kilalanin ang lahat ng pwede natin malaman sa Kanya. Pero hindi lang naman dapat dun hihinto yun. Dapat isinasapuso mo *** aral Nya at pagmamahal nya. Hindi lang sapat na magpakadalubhasa ka sa Kanya. Pinakaimportante sa lahat dapat mahalin mo Siya.

    May tatlong virtues na pinakamahalaga sa isang Kristiyano, hope, love, at faith. Pero ang pinakaimportante dito ay pagibig..

    Masama nga ba talagang mamili ng isang araw sa isang taon para magdiwang at magpahalaga para sa pinakamamahal mong Diyos?

    PATAY NA CONTRADICT, LUMALAYAO BAKIT?:

    UNAWAIN NATIN KAPATID UNA SABI MO

    HOPE - ANONG PAG-ASA ANG MATATAMASA MO KUNG ANG IBANG DIOS ANG NASASAMBA NATIN.

    LOVE - KUNG INISIP NATIN AY PAGIBIG NA LANG! NASALAMIN NA BA NATINA ANG SINASABI MONG PAGIBIG KUNG HINDI KA MARUNONG SUMUSUNOD SA MGA BATAS NA IPINAGUUTOS NG DIOS TULAd HALIMBAWA SA MGA TALATA SA IBABA?

    FAITH - ANONG PANANAMPALATAYA MO KUNG IKAW NANINIWALANG SA TATLONG KATANGIAN LAMANG HINAHALINTULAD ANG dios ninyo napakahinang dios yan hindi iyan ang Dios na Lumikha ng Sanlibutan!

    Haha.. Nga naman, mahirap ipaliwanag *** ang konsepto ng pag-asa, pag-ibig, at pananampalataya.. Di pala tanggap ng relihiyon ninyo ang I Corinthians..


    Para sa ikaliliwanag mo, ang sagot ko ay tungkol sa pagdiriwang namin ng Pasko na yun naman talaga ang topic mo. At ang sagot ko ay malamang na di maglalaman ng mga sagot sa iba pang tanong na nasa isip mo maliban sa itinype mo jan sa taas.


    Kaya naman ang argumento mo sa faith at hope ay hindi katanggap tanggap. Dahil malayo yan sa pinaguusapan. Lalaki ang pagdedebatihan natin.


    Ang masasagot ko lang sa mga sagot mo ay tungkol sa love. Nang dumating si Kristo, naging dalawang simpleng batas na lang ang mga yan. Una mahalin mo ang Diyos. Pangalawa mahalin mo ang kapwa mo. Sumuway ba kami sa batas ng ipagdiwang namin ang Pasko?

  16. #16
    kapatid !
    ang pagdiriwang ng pasko ay isang insutlo kay Hesus p. dahil ng linisan nya ang mundo kahit mga disipulo nya ay walang kaalam-alam at hindi itinuro ni Hesus p. sa kanila, at hindi ito sukatan para tawagin kang isang christiano.

    patunayan nyo na sinabi ito at itinuro ni Hesus p. bago pa man linisan nya ang mundo.

    Isang banyagang salita kay Hesus p. ang Pasko, santa klaus, krismas tree, noche buena, at mesa de gallo.

    sa makabagong panahon ngayon, sino paka ang magtatangkang pigilin ang pagdiriwang ng pasko sa kabila ng katotohanan nito ay wala sa bibliya at salungat ito sa mga mensahe na binitiwan ng mga Propeta SKNP.

    Christmas Tree PATUNAY NA WALANG SINO MANG PROPETA KAHIT SI HESUS AY MAYPAGDIRIWANG NG PASKO KAPATID BASA....!!!

    Jermiah 10:2 Ganito ang sabi ng Panginoon, Huwag kayong matuto ng lakad ng mga bansa, at huwag kayong manganglupaypay sa mga tanda ng langit; sapagka't ang mga bansa ay nanganglulupaypay sa mga yaon.

    Hehe.. Ibig sabihin mo ba limitahan ko din ang pagpapakita ko ng pagmamahal sa Kanya dahil wala naman nakasulat sa Bibliya tungkol dun?

    Ang relasyon namin sa Diyos ay di tulad ng sa amo at alila, na ang katapatan ng alila ay nakukuha sa pagsunod sa utos ng amo. Ang relasyon namin sa Diyos ay base sa pamamahal. Simple lang ang utos ng Diyos, magmahal. Ngayon, masama bang ipagdiwang at ikarangal namin ang Diyos, na nagmamahal satin sa paraan na di natin masuklian, sa araw ng Pasko?


    Kung ang tanong mo naman ay tungkol sa mga Christmas tree at kung ano ano pa, hindi naguutos ang Simbahan ng maglagay at maniwala ng kung ano ano pa.. Ang utos ng Simbahan ay magdiwang at magbagong buhay sa paggunita ng pagsilang ng Tagapagligtas. Kung ano man yang napapansin mo yan ay tradisyong labas at nananahan sa kultura ng mga nananampalataya. At malamang hindi yan tututulan ng Simbahan kung ang mga tradisyon na yan ay nakakatulong sa pagpapalaganap ng diwa ng Pasko.

  18. #18
    yon naman pala malinaw na sa sinabi mo na Diwa ng Pasko ok malinaw na sa aming mga seekers na iba pala ang pananampalataya nyo hindi yong katuruan ni Hesus p. dahil si Hesus p. walang kaalam-alam sa mga tradisyon nyo na pinagdiriwang ng mga pagano.

    please google THE ORIGIN OF CHRISTMASS

    hindi naman pala kayo nainiwala sa Tunay na Hesus p.
    tamaka na Christo pala ang sinusunod nyo ang hindi ko pa alam kung sinong Christo ang sunusunod nyo

    sino ba dito pili ka ha!!!:

    [Jesus- Nazareth
    Khrisna- India
    Sakia-India
    Iva- Nepal
    Indra-Tibet
    Mithra-Persia
    Tammuz-Babylonia
    Criti-Chaldea
    Attis-Phrygia
    Baili-Orissa
    Thules- Egypt
    Orantes-Egypt
    Witoba of the- Telingonese
    Odin-Scandinavia
    Hesus-the Druids
    Quetzalcoalt-Mexico]*[8]
    Sino ngayon ang tunay na Tagapagligtas sa ating mga nagawang kasalanan, lalabas napakarami nila. Sino nga ba ? Mamili ka sa kanila !!! Wala dahil sinabi mismo ni Jesus: Datapwat kung nalalaman ninyo kung ano ang kahulugan nito, Habag ang ibig ko, at hindi hain.[9]

    Magkaparehong Aral ng Misteryosong
    Relihiyon sa Bagong Tipan.

    Mga Simbolo, Kaugalian at Kapistahan ng Pagano

    Tanda ng Krus
    Ang Banal na Hapunan ng tinapay at alak bilang katawan at dugo ng Cristo
    Paggunita sa Linggo ng pagkabuhay ( Easter Eggs )
    Ang pagdiriwang ng Pasko tuwing Disyembre 25
    Ang Paggamit at palamuti sa puno ( Christmass tree)
    Ang pagtawag sa Cristong pagano na anak ng Dios at Dios anak.
    Ang katuruan ukol sa orihinal na sala ng tao at ang manunubos na Cristo sa pamamagitan ng pagpako sa krus.
    Ang Aral na Pangunahing Lalake, na umiral na bago pa ang sanlibutan, kasama ng Dios (Gnostico) bilang Cristo o Messias.

    Ang Pananampalatayang Pagano Sa Simbahan


    Ang Relihiyon sa Persia ( Mithraism)

    Si Mithra ay kinikilalang dios-araw at isinilang noong Ika-25 ng Disyembre sa araw ng Linggo. Itoy ibinibilanmg nila na aral ng kabanalan. Silay may rituwal na pagbibinyag, at banal na hapunan ( Tinapay at alak bilang simbolo ng katawan at dugong Cristong si Mithra). Naniniwala sila na si Mithra ang Cristo, ang tagapagligtas sa pamamagitan ng pagtanggap sa kaniya bilang sariling panginoon at tagapagligtas. Ang Dios sa Mitraism ay may anyong Trinidad- isang dios na may tatlong persona.

    Ang Relihiyon sa Egipto
    Si Orisis ay namatay at muling nabuhay. Siya ay dios na nagtagumpay sa kamatayan at libingan kaya ang sinomang tatanggap sa kanya ay magkakaroon ng buhay na walang hanggan. Siyay pinatay, inilibing at nabuhay sa loob ng tatlong aral at nanatili sa Sheoul (Impierno). Siya ang magiging hukom sa mga namatay ayon sa mga gawa nila sa daigdig na ito. ( ihambing sa I Cor. 15:3; Hebreo 10:4-14; 9: 12-15Roma 14:9-10, 5:21;6:23; 2 Timoteo 4:1; at 2 Thess. 2:16 )
    Amon Ra ( Amen) ay tinatawag na panginoon at ama ng mga dios, na namatay at muling nabuhay. Siya ay tinatawag ding Amen ang Misteryo. Siya ang pinaka-una sa Trinidad sa Thebes. Ang lumang monumento at dingding ng sinaunang templo sa Ehipto ay makikita siya na may hawak na tau cross bilang simbolo ni Amon at simbolo ng buhay. ( ihambing sa Apocalipsis 3:14 (?))
    Ang Relihiyon sa Babylonia
    Si Tammuz ay pinaniniwalaan na namatay at muling nabuhay, at siya ay sinasamba bilang dios na nagkatawang tao, anak ng Dios ( o Dios Anak) at Cristo. Siya ay pinatay para sa kaligtasan o kabutihan ng sanlibutan. Siya ang pinakamahigpit na kaaway ni Apophis, ang tusong ahas na sumira sa kaligayahan ng sankatauhan. Kinikilala si Tammuz bilang binhi ng babae na siyang papatay o sisira sa ulo ng ahas. Siya ang wawasak na kaharian ni Satanas. (ihambing sa Apocalipsis 12:9; Genesis 3:15; Efeso 2:16; Roma 5:18;6:9; Apocalipsis 20:2; Juan I:1, 14; I Corinto 1:18; 15:3

    Ang Relihiyon ng mga Griego

    Si Dioysus o Bacchus ayon sa mitolohiya ng mga Griego ay kinikilala siya bilang dios, namatay at muling ipinanganak. Ang mga debote niya ay nagdiriwang ng kanyang kamatayan at pagkabuhay na maguli sa mga patay. Tinatawag siya na bugtong na anak ng dios ( Jupiter) at ipinanganak ng isang birhen. Siya ang manunubos at tagapaglligtas ng sankatauhan at tinatawag niya ang kanyang sarili na Alpha at Omega. ( ihambing sa Matthew 17:5; Lucas 1:35, 27 Apocalipsis 1:11?)

    Ang Relihiyon sa Syria
    Si Adonis ay ipinanganak ng isang ring birhen, nagpakasakit at namatay upang sagipin ang tao sa kasalanan at muling nabuhay mula sa mga patay .( Ihambing sa 2 Corinto 4:14; Tito 2:14; Colosas 1: 12-14; Roma 6:4-5; ! Corinto 1:30)
