You're not supposed to have a Christmas tree if You're Christian

Jeremiah 10: 1-5 does talk about cutting down a tree and decorating it.
God and Idols 
1 Hear what the LORD says to you, O house of Israel. 2 This is what the LORD says: 
  "Do not learn the ways of the nations 
  or be terrified by signs in the sky, 
  though the nations are terrified by them. 
3 For the customs of the peoples are worthless; 
  they cut a tree out of the forest, 
  and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel. 

4 They adorn it with silver and gold; 
  they fasten it with hammer and nails 
  so it will not totter. 

5 Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, 
  their idols cannot speak; 
  they must be carried 
  because they cannot walk. 
  Do not fear them; 
  they can do no harm 
  nor can they do any good."

    Quoting Lydlou02:

    You missed the second half of verse 3."and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel"
    When's the last time you took a chisel to your xmas tree?

    When the guy with the chainsaw chops the bottom off to put the tree stand on?

    I don't worship a Tree so I am not worried about it.

    My pastor from our old church put up a tree in his house and in the lobby of the church. Everyone loved the one at church. It was beautiful.

    I don't put up Christmas trees. Bam. Oh and even if I did, that wouldn't make me less of a Christian.

    This isn't talking about a christmas tree. The verse talks about taking a tree from the forest and carving it because it is explaining the process of carpentry. That is, creating an idol. A Christmas tree in and of itself is not an idol, and is not worshiped. There is nothing wrong with it.

    Who in the hell worships their Christmas tree? You misinterpret scripture.

    Nope. That's specifically referring to carving idols.
