Happy Friday Everyone! Christmas is in a week!! Are you ready? Honestly I'm not a huge fan of Christmas in America anymore. Satan has sure won a victory in taking our eyes of of Jesus and putting them onto Christmas trees, decorations, food, parties, and gifts! I'm amazed at the commercials I see showing tons of gifts most people could never afford, like cars and diamonds! And of course all the people are beautiful with big houses and happy smiles. Who buys a car for someone for Christmas, anyway? Certainly not anyone I know. I've not seen one commercial about Jesus..a.k.a. Christ who is the Christ in Christmas. What I do see is people at stores and restaurants hesitant to even say Merry Christmas for fear of offending someone. What? Give me a break! I make it a habit to say it loud and clear to everyone I meet. And you know what? So far, no one has been offended. Most say it right back. What has happened to our country when we can't display a Nativity Scene in front of a public building to celebrate the birth of Christ, which is why we even have Christmas!? Does that make any sense to anyone?
And why is it, it seems, that only Christian ideas and celebrations are banned? Nobody seems to go after Buddists or Hindus, Atheists, Satanists, and especially not Islam, or you might get your head chopped off. (Satan only attacks that which he fears!) Frankly, this is America and I don't care what you believe or what you celebrate when. You may speak out about it, write about it, shout it across America's byways! You may put up whatever decor you desire and bow to whatever idol you want. This is a free country with free speech, or at least it used to be. Whether or not I believe what you believe doesn't matter. You have a right to say and do whatever you want within the law. But so do I. And that's where I get mad. Isn't it true that people who talk the most about tolerance are usually the ones who are the most intolerant.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
I plan on celebrating the birth of my Lord for as long as I have breath. I will put a Nativity in front of my house and wish everyone I meet a Merry Christmas. And whenever God grants me a chance, I will tell everyone about the incredible love of Jesus and how He came and died for everyone so we could be set free from the evil one and live forever in a place that makes this earth look like a dung heap. And when it becomes illegal to do so, they may break into my house and drag me off to some prison, where I will STILL celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior, Jesus, until my dying breath.
Who is with me?
