    GLMX #149: Invictus or Invictor?

    in Christianity

    Have you ever heard this phrase: "I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul"? What you may not know is that those two short sentences are the last two lines of a poem by English poet William Ernest Henley titled "Invictus", the Latin word for "invincible" or "unconquerable."

    William Henley's poem is a poem of defiance in the face of great odds. At the age of 14, he contracted tuberculosis of the bone. A few years later, the disease progressed to his foot, and physicians announced that the only way to save his life was to amputate his leg directly below the knee. He underwent the amputation when he was just 17. Shortly thereafter, he was told that his other leg would have to be amputated. However, by enlisting the help of another doctor and undergoing intense surgery, he was able to save his other leg. This event, and his determination to live, enjoy, and control his life despite his circumstances, are what led him to write this poem while he was recovering in the hospital. Despite his disability, he survived with one foot intact and led an active life until his death at the age of 53.

    Henley felt that he needed to be in control of his life, and he thought that he could control every aspect of his existence including what happened to him after he died. From his words, we see that he did not accept that there was an eternal being whom he could lean on for support in this life and for assurance of his destiny in the life to come. He wanted to be the "master" and "captain" of his entire existence.

    However, the Bible tells us in Psalm 103 that we are but "dust." It goes on to say, "As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more."

    VFTB 212: Keep Calm and Christmas On

    in Paranormal

    THE MATTER of Christmas has become rather contentious in recent years. It needn’t be.


    While Jesus almost certainly was not born on December 25 (see this video by Dr. Michael Heiser making the case for September 11, 3 B.C.), Christians should not be concerned about accidentally worshiping a pagan deity if they celebrate the birth of the Messiah on Christmas Day.


    In brief:



    There is no scholarly evidence linking December 25 to the birth or worship of Nimrod and/or Tammuz
    Christmas is not modified Saturnalia
    Evidence suggests that a feast for the birth of Christ was celebrated in Egypt prior to 200 A.D.
    Some Christians celebrated the birth of Jesus on December 25 decades before Aurelian chose the date as the birth of Sol Invictus in 274
    Christians of the 4th century did not acknowledge a pagan origin for the celebration of Christmas (the idea did not appear in Christian writings until the 12th century)
    December 25th may have been chosen because it was nine months after March 25th, the Feast of the Annunciation celebrating the conception of Jesus


    Here is the takeaway: Those who choose to celebrate Christmas and those who are restrained by their conscience from celebrating the day are correct.  See Romans 14:


    One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. The one who observes the day, observes it in honor of the Lord. The one who eats, eats in honor of the Lord, since he gives thanks to God, while the one who abstains, abstains in honor of the Lord and gives thanks to God. (Romans 14:5-6 ESV)


    Be satisfied in your own mind. If you keep the holiday, or if you do not, then do it for the Lord and may He richly bless you and your family.
