Q: Are Nativity Scenes Bad

Q: A girl in my Sunday School Class said that Nativity Sets are not theologically sound. She said that the 3 Wise Men visited Jesus when He was in a house, not a manger. Nativity Sets are so pretty and a good Witnessing tool! Does this mean that they are really bad?

ITT: Yes, not all "Nativity Sets" / "Nativity Scenes" are Theologically Sound.

Spotlight Bible verse = "After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him." "
(Matthew 2:1-2, NIV)

Spotlight Bible verse = "After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him."
(Matthew 2:9-11, NIV)
An unfortunate side of "Human Traditions" is that over Time, Facts may get Twisted, Lost, etc. unintentionally. You are right, they are very Pretty. You are right, they are a great Tool to Profess Your Belief in Jesus Christ. Soooo, You have to decide if/how You will or will not Utilize this Opportunity.

Spotlight Bible verse = " "Master," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him, because he is not one of us." "Do not stop him," Jesus said, "for whoever is not against you is for you." "
(Luke 9:49-50, NIV)
