Does the Bible say that having a Christmas Tree is idolatry?

B.Y

Some believe that Jeremiah 10:3-10 is referring to making or possessing a Christmas tree.

The Christmas tree is not mentioned in the Scriptures. Jeremiah 10 does not refer to the modern Christmas tree, but instead to a piece of wood similar to a totem pole, an idol, and overlaid with silver and gold. Notice particularly Jeremiah 10:9-11.

Christians should never worship a tree or anything else. The Christmas Tree is simply a symbol that Christians use to remember that Jesus Christ was born to be, and is, Saviour of the World!
