: The author of this work believes without reservation, that the King James Bible is more than just a priceless work of literary art, which it is. But it is has indeed been preserved without error by God's providence as an infallible book that the common man in the English speaking world can hold and own, and the light it can give rest entirely on that man's faith in it and its Author. And all those who believe otherwise have either been duped, have an unclean motive, are just ignorant or see no issue of importance in having God's word readily available in an infallible form. No amount of linguist ability can give any extra light if there is doubt to its content, the Holy Spirit will not honour anyone that want to subject this English Bible to an inferior position.
It’s the season for rejection TRA, LA, LA, LA, LA LA, LA or should we say JINGLE BELL, JINGLE BELL, JINGLE BELL ROCK.
Christmas despite the date and the pagan appendages of the winter solace is in the main about as biblical as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. However it still gives honour to the birth of the Saviour, and this drives humanist and atheists nuts.
Pagans had traditionally decked their halls with boughs of holly, evergreens and mistletoe and later after the birth of the Christ Child it evolved to rioting and drunkenness, chambering and wantonness complete with a boar’s head and feasting.
Nevertheless, we Christians are caught up in this traditional leaven. I once had a children’s book where Santa Claus was kneeing next to the manger
Gal 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
On one hand we Bible believing Christians who have studied the history of this holiday know that it’s roots are Popish with a mixture of truth and error. Christians in the past Puritans, Quakers and Baptist both in England and the early American Colonies and later have refused to celebrate it.
But on the other hand, even though it’s origins are tainted; it still speaks of the birth of the only sure hope the blessed hope the Lord Jesus Christ and now it is no longer so much as a contention between diver groups under the banner of “Christianity”, but has become a battle between those who hate the mention and any association with the birth of Christ Jesus. This is done under the subtle guile of diversity, tolerance, and sensitivity.
Rom 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
Their goal is to expel any link to the birth of the Saviour and not to retain
God in their knowledge and yours.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
The very term Secular Christmas is an oxymoron at best.
The only thing, I personally have against Christmas Day in the religious sense is the last three letters (MAS). That which is supported by Holy Writ I must accept!
And no I do not condone the heresies of Catholicism or any other group. You can help populate hell by trusting a wafer or Hyper-Calvinism.
But the battle is no longer as stated before across denomination lines (no matter what you may thing of certain denomination beliefs), but now it has become an agenda to remove any link of Judea-Christian moral and beliefs. At one time all we had to battle was the soft sell of Santa Claus, you know “it is for the children and makes them happy”.
Seeing that they have removed prayer from the public schools and replaced it with sex education, which probably has increased prayer in many cases with “I hope to God I am not pregnant”.
And now the leaven has risen to remove all Judea-Christian morals, beliefs and traditions, this cake has been mixed with the dung of evolution, removing prayer in public institutions and other sordid ingredients.
The goal of Satan is stated by Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Satan wants no completion in any form this is the ultimate goal.
Anything that remotely honours God or his Son is under attack. You maybe in a jungle of heresies in diver “Christian” denominations; but a lion that is against the very name of Christ (regardless of the denomination) is chasing you.
What can we do?
Romans 14:5-6 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day [alike]. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. (6) He that regardeth the day, regardeth [it] unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard [it]. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
1. While it is true that many have a form of godliness and deny the power thereof. It behooves us to remember that the very form is under attack.
2. If there is anyway to boycott business that seek to eliminate the name of Christ do so.
Regardless, of what you think of Christmas. Did not the heavenly host praise his birth?
Luke 2:13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
3. Your basic religious freedom is under attack and the Christian heritage of our forefathers.
Psalms 11:3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
4. While you may put your head in the sand and say I will not defend Christmas because it is linked to many falsehoods, does this mean that those who wish to eliminate it will not come after your religious beliefs.
Luke 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
Do not cut off your nose in order to spite your face.
John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
