Take prayer out of schools, to the Christian God, that is. Take down Ten Commandment statues. Leave God out of the Pledge of Allegience, the Declaration of Independence, and for the love of…well, something…please take “In God We Trust” off our money.
In the midst of constant athiest lawsuits against creches and crosses in the public square, Christians called to fight these battles are showing valiant effort, seemingly to no avail. The
secular Satanic influence on our worldly governments is powerful and commanding especially during Christian holiday seasons…temporarily of course.
The Good News is the first syllable of Christmas: Christ, which of course is why it must be eradicated from all utterance, verbal, penned, or otherwise. Replacing Christ’s name with an X eliminates the very purpose of celebrating the holiday; a purpose everlasting, not relegated to one day or one season of each year.
People say all holidays have a pagan aspect to them. Christmas does not. Take Christ out of Christmas, and you no longer have Christmas. Folks who spotlight family, focus on exchanging gifts, and take pride in the
seasonal temporary spirit of giving celebrate X-mas. People whose lives revolve around the birth of Christ, the Savior of our fallen humanity, followed by His sacrifice and resurrection are those who celebrate Christmas.
What is family without Christ? What is giving without the Holy Spirit moving you to share the only True Hope behind the provision of material necessities maintaining our flesh? Meaningless is what it is. And why is it that people feel it is sufficient to be generous for one season? I suppose a more appropriate all-encompassing-question would be – why not? When Christ is taken out of our words and actions, all we are left with is a “mas”, more accurately expressed: “mess”.
“…Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people: Today a Savior, who is Messiah the Lord, was born for you…”
– Luke 2:10-11 HCSB
“Jesus shouted again with a loud voice and gave up His spirit.”
– Matthew 27:50 HCSB
“God has resurrected this Jesus. We are all witnesses of this.”
-Acts 2:32 HCSB
The last thing we should be crossing out is Christ. Merry CHRISTmas.
