Interview on Canadian Television about Christmas

by JesseRay on December 16, 2011

I received a call from a Canadian television station requesting I  do an interview about Christmas. I had quite a good time with Michael Coren, host of The Arena.

He was a great host and author…did you know he wrote the book: “Why Catholics are Right”? It is a very helpful book explaining and defending the Catholic Faith. It is one of the top selling books in Canada. I had begun reading it before the phone call, and was pleasantly surprised when I made the connection.

Steve’s interview is about 10-minutes. He discusses the origins or Christmas. Pagan Holiday? Enjoy!

STEVE RAY HERE: IN CAPS I WILL RESPOND TO JACKIE’S COMMENT.

JACKIE WROTE: Michael Coren did not discuss this subject with a panel of diverse opinions, i.e. Evangelicals or even better, Messianic Jews.

WHY IS THAT NECESSARY? HE DIDN’T INTERVIEW BUDDHISTS, COMMUNISTS OR ESKIMOS EITHER. ONE DOES NOT NEED A FULL PANEL TO DISCUSS A MATTER. BY THE WAY, MESSIANIC JEWS ARE BASICALLY JEWISH PEOPLE WHO HAVE ADOPTED EVANGELICAL PROTESTANT THEOLOGY AND TRADITION BUT KEEP THEIR JEWISH GARB. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THEM BUT THINK PEOPLE SHOULD REALIZE THEY ARE REALLY EVANGELICAL PROTESTANTS IN THEIR THEOLOGY.

JACKIE WROTE: Try and fix it any way one wants to, Christmas is a Catholic invention for Solstice.

AND WHERE DOES ONE PROVE CHRISTMAS IS A “CATHOLIC INVENTION”? IT IS FUNNY HOW SOME PROTESTANTS THINK. WHEN THEY WANT TO DISMISS CATHOLICISM THEY DENY IT EXISTED UNTIL LATER CENTURIES, INVENTED BY SOME POPE OR EMPEROR, BUT WHEN THEY WANT TO DISMISS SOME EARLY CHRISTIAN PRACTICE (LIKE CHRISTMAS) THEY SAY THE CATHOLIC INVENTED IT IN THE EARLY CENTURIES. THEY WANT IT BOTH WAYS.

JACKIE WROTE: Search this Scripture Stephen and Stop saying things GOD did not invent!!!

AND YOU ARE THE JUDGE OF WHAT “GOD INVENTED”?

JACKIE WROTE: Mary was just impregnated by the Holy Spirit when she visited her cousin Elisabeth;

WRONG. MARY WAS IMPREGNATED IN NAZARETH WHEN THE ANGEL BROUGHT THE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM GOD. SHE WAS ALREADY PREGNANT WHEN SHE MET ELIZABETH. AND ELIZABETH IS NOT DESIGNATED A “COUSIN” IN SCRIPTURE BUT A “RELATIVE — KIN.

JACKIE WROTE: Luke 1 says that Elisabeth was 6 months with child…so this brings her to a March birth for John the Baptist

WHERE DO YOU FIND IN SCRIPTURE OR ANYWHERE THAT JOHN WAS BORN IN MARCH?

…count backwards and this brings Mary to be impregnated in December at Hanukkah (Festival of Lights). Count 9 months Mr. Genius…and that bring YESHUA at the end of September birth…right into the Festival of Sukkot (or Festival of Booths). This Festival lasts 8 days…and the Bible says on the 8th Day, Mary and Joseph brought Him to the Temple for the ceremonial Brit Milah (circumcision) according to the Law for all Jewish boys.

THE ONLY THING YOU GOT RIGHT HERE IS THAT JESUS WAS CIRCUMCISED ON THE 8TH DAY. YOU HAVE A LOT OF UNFOUNDED SPECULATION ABOVE — ONE MIGHT SAY YOU ARE INVENTING THINGS GOD DID NOT SAY AND YOU CANNOT PROVE.

JACKIE WROTE: Michael Coren is turning me OFF, FOLLOWING the other Son of Hamas recently who pretends to be converted to Christianity but still speaks evil of Israel on other channels (in Arabic)é
DO YOUR DAMN JOB COREN…and get facts STRAIGHT.

COREN IS REALLY UNCONCERNED ABOUT YOUR THOUGHTS OF HIM, AS AM I. YOU ARE RUDE AND INACCURATE AND POMPOUS. BUT IT IS GOOD FOR FOLKS TO SEE THAT PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE OUT THERE AND FULL OF NONSENSE.
