In 1 Corinthians 8, Paul is simply teaching the transposition of The Law and the liberty that provides those whose attitude is righteous when it comes to this physical world and physical acts. Very much like Yahusha and his disciples gathering food on The Sabbath... See below the verses to replace “the eating of things/meat sacrificed to idols to “the Christmas Day” and commentaries in parenthesis to help you understand better. 1 Corinthians 8 4 Therefore concerning the gathering together on Christmas Day, we know (in our heart) that there is no such thing as "Jesus was born on Christmas", and that there is no God but one Yahuah not Jesus. 5 For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven (the sun is a god i.e. Baal) or on earth (Jesus parading around in our hearts as god incarnate), as indeed there are many gods and many human demi-gods called Christos, 6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father Yahuah, from whom are all things (created) and we exist for Yahuah; and one King, Yahusha the Messiah, for whom are all things (were given as an inheritance), and we exist through The Yahushaic Covenant as co-heirs. (my attitude is that Yahuah alone is God ... Jesus doesn't exist either does Baal, it is just another day to me) 7 However not all men have this knowledge (and view December 25th as a day of worship, a holy day to them); but some, being accustomed celebrating the birth of Jesus until now, celebrate Christmas as if it were (their intent) a day of worshipping Jesus; and their conscience being weak is defiled (on Christmas Day because to them it is a holy day). 8 But gathering with family on a specific day of the year will not commend us to Yahuah; we are neither the worse if we choose not to gather with family on that day, nor the better if we gather with our family on that day. 9 But take care that this liberty of yours (to gather with family on December 25th with the intent to spend time with family not celebrate the birth of Jesus) does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. 10 For if someone (weak in faith) sees you, who have knowledge (that it is just another day), having dinner with family on Christmas Day, will not his (the person who sees you) conscience, if he is weak, (thinks you are celebrating Christmas) be strengthened to actually keep Christmas Day as a holy day? 11 For through your knowledge (that it is just another day and your Liberty to gather with family on that day) he who is weak (in the Spiritual Truth of the Law) is ruined (because by your example he thinks it is OK to celebrate the meaning of Christmas), the brother for whose sake Yahusha died. 12 And so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, (doesn't have the knowledge of Intent over act) you sin against The Yahushaic Covenant. 13 Therefore, if getting together on a Christmas Day causes my brother to stumble (because he is not Strong in The Yahushaic Covenant and understands Spiritual Intent over act), I will never gather on that day again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble
