Quote from an article by David J. Meyer:
“If you are an honest, sincere and discerning Christian, please read on; if not, you might as well stop right here. The World Book Encyclopedia defines “Christmas” as follows: “The word Christmas comes from “Cristes Maesse”, an early English phrase that means “Mass of Christ.” (1) It is interesting to note that the word “Mass”, as used by the Roman Catholics, has traditionally been rejected by the so-called Protestants, such as Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Pentecostals and so on. The word “Mass” is strictly a Catholic word and thus, so is “Christ-Mass.”
It would stand to reason that since all of these denominations love and embrace Christ Mass, December 25th is the greatest homecoming day of all time when every Protestant become Catholic for a day. All of the so-called “wayward daughters” of the Rome-ish church return to their mother, the scarlet harlot. All of the Protestant churches should be singing to the Pope, “I’ll be home for Christmas.”
The word ‘mass’ in religious catholic usage means a ‘death sacrifice.’ The impact of this truth is horrifying when the millions of people are saying, “Merry Christmas,” they are literally saying “Merry death of Christ!” When the fat man in the red suit laughs boisterously and says, “Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas”, he is mocking the suffering and bleeding Saviour who died for our sins. He ‘ho ho hho’s’ while parents place little children into his waiting arms to hear his false promises of gifts.
