Where did Christmas go?
Season wreaths - Holiday Trees - Festive Lights - Blah Blah Blah
It's called Christmas. So I go around saying Merry Christmas to people. I actually got a "Merry Christmas" from a employee whose company has told them not to say it. Yesterday we learned that one of Annekas friends will be celebrating "Presents Day". They are atheists.
A county in Texas received a law suit from a group of atheists who demand that they get to put their banner up next to their nativity. The banner will read. "At this season of the Winter Solstice, LET REASON PREVAIL. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds."
The city of Boca has had so much flack about this they decided to do nothing.
I don't believe that this war will be won sitting in a pew - at a judges bench or in the arena of public opinion. It isn't our job to convert people - it is our ministry to tell them the good news about Jesus. It isn't our job to convict them of their sins - it is our job to show them the love of Jesus.
This war will be won when no matter what culture does - we decide to celebrate Christmas. Not the holiday - Christmas!
Luke 2:11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
