Okay Halloween is over praise the Lord and now it is early November as I write we therefore have to start talking about and preparing for Christmas. That is Christmas and not Xmas or Happy Holiday or any other attempt at renaming this season.
“Oh you are just old fashioned and out of touch with today’s world.” I probably am actually, but where is it getting us?
Cadbury’s Egg Hunts rather that Easter Egg Hunts along with other dilutions of tradition to commercialize seasons for the benefit of huge business. Don’t get me wrong, I am not pretending that Jesus was born on 25th December or that Easter time was not originally a celebration of Spring fertility and that both were completely Pagan and non-Christian celebrations.
I am not someone who thinks that all will be well with the world if we allow everyone to just do as they like. It seems today that anything which counters the long-held traditional, or in many cases Biblical view of a particular area of society is thought to be a good thing and should be universally approved and accepted. Excuse me if I don’t agree. This world is falling apart and if you don’t think so, consider the poverty, the inequality, the fighting, the abuse, the corruption, the sexual and gender confusion, the lack of direction, the fools in power, the slave trade and the Bankers and of course the eight weeks of Christmas …sorry Xmas,
For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear”. 2Timothy 4 v 3
