Christ or Christmas? Mini Article Series, Part 4

Jesus said of the Pharisees: “’And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men--the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do. He said to them, ‘All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition’” (Mark 7:7-9).  

Do you notice the “doctrines” and “commandments of men” are practices without any authority from God? Pharisees wanted to appear even more religious than those who simply obeyed God’s Word, so they invented observations, and set aside “the commandment of God.”  The observance of a “Christ’s Mass” is just such a Pharisaical practice. Christians remember Jesus’ death in the Lord’s Supper, and resurrection every 1st day of the week. For a “Christ’s Mass,” many set these aside.
