Every December, millions of people go through the custom of taking evergreen trees from groves and standing them up in their homes, churches and offices, decorating them with all kinds of ornaments to celebrate the Christmas holiday.
But might there be something wrong with this popular tradition?
Now, a best-selling Christian author says God has made it clear in the Bible that He has no liking for this ancient practice, with Scripture indicating it will be put to an end by the Almighty Himself.
“People really need to crack open their Bibles and read the words on the page, because Scripture is filled with God’s own comments about decorating green trees, calling it a worthless custom,” says Joe Kovacs, author of “Shocked by the Bible 2: Connecting the Dots in Scripture to Reveal the Truth They Don’t Want You to Know.”
“And, what’s even more shocking to some, God says He’s going to do away with this ancient heathen practice that millions of Christians have adopted.”
The first chapter of “Shocked by the Bible 2” has an in-depth examination of what Holy Scripture says about associating green trees with the worship of the Creator, providing numerous Scriptures expressing God’s displeasure with the custom.
“Many are stunned when they find out how many times the Bible mentions ‘every green tree’ and ‘groves,’ and how God’s own people became mixed up with the detestable practices of pagan, God-hating nations,” says Kovacs.
Here’s just a small sampling of the Bible verses cited in “Shocked 2”:
