Just as a reminder, I do not celebrate Christmas or any other holidays as I was raised a Jehovahs Witness and am studying to be one. I have had ...trouble throughout the years sticking with those beliefs. But now I am entirely sure that I want to be one, and am thus not partaking in holidays. Please respect this, thanks.

Why don’t Jehovah’s Witnesses celebrate Christmas?

  • Jesus commanded that we commemorate his death, not his birth.—Luke 22:19, 20.

  • Jesus’ apostles and early disciples did not celebrate Christmas. The New Catholic Encyclopedia says that “the Nativity feast was instituted no earlier than 243 [C.E.],” more than a century after the last of the apostles died.

  • There is no proof that Jesus was born on December 25; his birth date is not recorded in the Bible.

  • We believe that Christmas is not approved by God because it is rooted in pagan customs and rites.—2 Corinthians 6:17.


Why make Christmas an issue?

Many still celebrate Christmas despite knowing about its pagan roots and lack of support from the Bible. Such persons could ask: Why should Christians take such an unpopular stance? Why make it an issue?

The Bible encourages us to think for ourselves, to use our “power of reason.” (Romans 12:1, 2) It teaches us to value the truth. (John 4:23, 24) So while we are interested in how others view us, we adhere to Bible principles even if it means that we become unpopular.

Although we choose not to celebrate Christmas ourselves, we respect each person’s right to decide for himself in this matter. We do not interfere in the Christmas celebrations of others.

Don't know if anyone cares since half my friends don't seem to even like or care about AMVs anymore. But I made a SSSS.Gridman AMV. My first complete AMV since 2012, since I kinda stopped editing for a while. But my obsession with this anime made me think of songs that fit it, and I have an entire list that's waiting on the anime to end so I have the necessary footage. Such as Akane's redemption arc if it happens.

Anyways...
Save The World

I finally stored the 9/11 artwork. It's about time I matured past that I guess. I mean. I still personally believe in the conspiracy about said subject. But I will no longer art my opinions on things controversial any more.Unless it's a joke and presented as such.
Doodles of my character Kanji to the song “Hold Me Now” by RED which fits him. Kanji is still my most tragic character to date.75d1c810-ca53-467c-8741-4c22dc5ac3e6 by TheBetrayedPhoenix
Alright. So I've gone to the nerd side. After getting recommended Kamen Rider W as a starting point on the Gridman Discord server, I started it. So far I like the trio but Philip is my favorite. Shotaro second favorite. I dunno, Philip just makes me think of a lost puppy or L.
