Upholding the truth...

...by ripping four verses out of context, ignoring the fifth and following verses in the chapter, distorting the meaning to fit your idea of it being a literal Christmas tree, and then consigning anybody who doesn't bow down to the false idol of your man-made system of interpretation to hell? Yeah, that kind of reeks of the Pharisees. I don't fault you for not wanting to celebrate Christmas -- that's your freedom. I will fault you for twisting these verses out of context and trying to place them as burdens on others' backs and telling them they're going to hell if they don't follow your views.
