Every year I have to endure as person after person spouts ignorance to the masses regarding Christmas. Every year I usually have to say something to someone at least once before it is all said and done.
Why can’t people just enjoy the holidays without trying to convince everyone and their brother that it is Jesus’ birthday or that Jesus is the reason for the season?!!
For Christ’s sake people (pun intended), look it up. In this day and age of freely available resources almost anything is waiting at your finger tips to be learned.
I know they mean well, frankly I don’t care. What really baffles me is those who know it isn’t his birthday and know that the holiday has it’s roots in Pagan celebration and still say that “Jesus is the reason for the season”. Can someone explain that to me?
Seriously, if you are a confessed Christian and you confess that you know that Jesus was not born at this time and you confess that you know that Christmas was a Pagan celebration originally, could you in good conscious with your God continue to tell everyone that Jesus is the reason for the season and that you are celebrating his birthday? Isn’t that the same thing as lying? Doesn’t God look down on that?
One or two years ago my family and I celebrated our first Christmas/Yule. Why you may ask did we celebrate it if we are against it.
Well, I am not against it. That’s just it. I am against misinformation. I have no problem with Christmas, I do have a problem when people try to say it is all because of Jesus that we have Christmas. Nothing could be further from the facts and it really bothers me that people continue to live in ignorance even to this day. People actually know the truth and still proclaim that is all about him.
Well, that is what has been on my mind of late.
Things are coming along with our Gun business. Since September we have sold 7 guns and someone is coming by tomorrow to possibly buy another one. I am looking forward to being able to finish the Gun Store soon so that we can start filling it with guns and armor to sell.
I am looking forward to the new year and I am hopeful. Even though things are not looking good for our country. I believe that ultimately, things will turn out for the best. We may have some hard times ahead of us but it is hard times that bring people together in unity. Too long this nation has been slowly loosing it’s unity. This (the enslaving of us and our children to the government in the name of bail outs and insurance for the poor.) just might be the catalyst needed to bring everyone together again.
Blessings and Peace to all through the coming year.
