“I’m a nice person, I treat people nice. God will let me into Heaven.”
“Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few” (Matthew 7:13-14).
We hear it all the time. Christmas Day is just a day that the Church stole from the pagans to get them to convert. Jesus was born in March!
Actually, they have it backwards – Jesus wasn’t born in March. He was conceived in March…
March 25 is also the date calculated by the early Church as the actual Good Friday. The popular understanding among 1st century Jews was that prophets and other important figures died on the date of their conception/birth. So Jesus was understood to have been conceived on 3/25 – H/T @PopeSpurdo (No, he isn’t the Pope. That’s his Twitter account name. 🙂 )
In case you are not familiar with the story and history of Our Lady Of Guadalupe, or the Tilma, here’s some information that will make you say, “Whoa…”.
Our Lady Of Guadalupe Tilma
The Tilma was examined under a laser ray, it was shown that there is no color on the front or the back of the cloth, the colors hover at a distance of 3/10th of a millimeter over the cloth, without touching it. The colors actually float above the surface of the Tilma.
