What is Christmas, REALLY? Lately Christians have been told that Christmas is a pagan holiday and REAL Christians should NEVER celebrate it. There has been much attention given to the pagan roots of the Christmas holiday. Some say we need to celebrate his birth in spring, not December. Others say that we should NEVER celebrate the birth of Jesus, God never told us to.

As a Christian, what should we do? Is December 25 a pagan holiday? Why did the early Church choose this date to celebrate the birth of Jesus? Are we participating in paganism if we take part in the Christmas holiday season? Does this mean we are part of the world and not a TRUE Christian? Should instead we celebrate the biblical holidays and ignore the rest?

This show is dedicated to a biblical discussion on various topics. The focus of this show is to touch on subjects most people are unfamiliar with or don't know how to confront. My goal is to equip believers through discussion and debate to present the gospel message to those led astray by the "philosophies" of this age.  It is set up so people can call in with a question or comment. Please note, it is possible that we will get calls from those who want to promote the subject we are discussing. Some shows might be of a sensitive nature due to the fact that calls will not be screened to investigate content. It is the host's desire to address each subject in light of historical biblical Christianity and proper biblical hermeneutics and apologetics.

Anyone who abuses the privilege of decent public expression will be removed.
