Christmas Services Must Be Abolished

“Likewise then, the appointment and celebration of religious holy days (that have no divine warrant) is sinful and will without question offend the consciences of all good Puritan and truly confessional Presbyterian believers. Thus, the imposition of Christmas religious services apart from faith, resting solely on human invention and authority, is a gross violation of Christian liberty and charity. Is a love of human traditions so important that the liberty of Christ’s sheep should be disregarded and trampled under foot? Is it an act of Christian love to tempt believers to sin by doing that which is not rooted in biblical faith, but rather pagan and popish tradition? For the sake of all Christians who want to be faithful to Scripture, Christmas services must be abolished.”

~Brian Schwertley, “The Regulative Principle of Worship and Christmas”
