Now we come to the Christmas season to spend time with family exchange gifts and cheer, so what is Christmas?
In todays society we say happy holidays afraid to offend others, yet many will exchange gifts with no love for the reason of Christmas. Why??
If you don't believe in Christ, and want to make him something less then what he is, why in all sense would you celebrate his birth since you don't know him???
Christmas has become something that is far from the meaning of what it is. It has gone from a celebration of God coming to Earth as a man to make the sacrifice that only God can accomplish as the perfect man to a Santa Clause day.
Christmas has gift giving in rememberance of the gift that Jesus brought us in dying so we may have eternal life in him. It is a reminder of the wise men who came with gifts for the King, and that whoever does for the least of Gods children does so unto him, so in that we are giving gifts to Christ just as they did on his birthday.
Yet we have shows brainwashing children that there is no Christmas without Santa Claus, and that it actually has something to do with this chubby version of a character from Norse mythology who is given aspects of God.
Why would anyone who doesn't believe celebrate the holiday celebrating God coming to Earth to save mankind when this same person spits on the gift given every chance they get, and look at those who are his children as superstitious fools??
This all is just sort of goofy in my book, and it makes no sense to me at all.
I say Merry Christmas to you, and if you don't like it, my prayers go out for you in all the love that Christ fills me with.
