My Christmas Thought

CHRISTMAS NEEDS THE CHRIST CHILD: Dear friends and fellow Americans as Christmas draws close, again this year, we can see the beautiful Christmas decorations, the lights, the Christmas Trees, Santa Clause with his reindeer, and hear the Christmas Songs, and much more, but my friend I have a question to ask. "WHERE IS THE CHRIST CHILD IN ALL OF THIS?" The true meaning of Christmas is nowhere to be found. Christ is what this day is all about! Most people celebrate everything but the real reason for the season. Worldly and liberal activists have seen to that, with the help and involvement of the cowardly courts where the terminology of the Constitution have been twisted and re worded for their cause and purpose. That cause is, if you have not already figured it out, "A world without Jesus Christ." People can display a menorah, but not a manger scene. They can display anything in this world but nothing to do with the Baby Jesus. It is not the Constitution that was created by our founding fathers that is at fault, but judges, who have been so intimidated by the worldly and liberal crowd that it has become acceptable for a near about anything to be part of a street display at Christmas time, but not a manger scene or anything related to the birth of our Savior. Not only is that a twisted and gross misinterpretation of the Constitution, but of our nation's history. This nation was founded on Christianity.

We need to come back to the fact, God has given us His only Son as a gift to take our sins away. Now that is a fact! Oh, what a blessed gift! A person could not ask for a better gift than that! The ideas which make up our civilization are based on Christianity. Some of those ideas have taken on a life of their own, forgetting about Jesus, and giving worldly people the false impression that we can throw out Christianity while keeping hold of the ideals needed for our freedom. That is just not right and it will not work. Throwing the Lord out the door. Just look at the countries in the Bible who tried to leave The Lord out. Just look around you, my friend, for the evidence, in the demands for the drastic changing of our family values, the changing of Christmas from the birth of Jesus into a shopping spree in which the word Christ Child is never heard. It is happy holidays instead of Merry Christmas. If we cherish what is so distinctive, so special, and so good about country and our form of civilization and freedom, we must respect, preserve, and defend the Christian roots from which our way of life, our principles, what we stand for, and what is left of our public decency have come from.

As we get ready to celebrate Christmas and rejoice over the birth of Jesus, we as Americans should give serious thought to The Lord's influence on the great American freedoms, among us, that we so cherish so much, and which did make this country so great. Out of respect and reverence for Christian roots, if for no other reason or purpose, As Christians and American's we should have, as our main goal and concern to put Christ back into Christmas and not only that but to make Him apart of our daily lives. God bless each and every one of you, and have a Merry Christmas.
