Take the time to read it, its worth it.

  1. Greetings! I will have to walk the line on this one. I do think it is expecting too much for a secular company to promote a religious observance – are we really having conversations about paper cups (smile).

    On the other hand the phrase, ‘Happy Holidays’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas’ has irked me for some time; and the lack of acknowledgement of Christ-mass being a religious celebration. Who would want to take the Hannukah out of Hannukah celebrations? And who would be offended if one got a card from a friend with the greeting in it! I can say with relief saying Merry Christmas is still alive and well down-under for church and non-church goers alike.

    What worries me most though is the point in the video where he pulls out the gun and talks about the second ammendment or something or other. Now that is definitely not in my bible. American’s please assure me this is the exception rather than the norm! Christians claiming guns are somehow aligned with keeping the real Christ story alive? Weird. Scary.

    Blessings

    • Lol thank you so much. I reblogged this from Nate lakes blog he’s a Christian youth with really awesome views.
      But I was upset that he went about it the wrong way. That’s not how to teach or preach Christ. If Jesus was there he wouldn’t do that. He would be pleasant to the waiter and probably ask why it was removed and ask if he could Make a suggestion. And he would definitely not pull a gun on them lol.
      But thank you so much. I hope to see more of you

  3. Modern Christmas in the United States is all about getting, and giving stuff. Everyone tries to accumulate as much stuff as they can get, with their credit cards all maxed out. Some search for some kind of peace. We won’t find peace by saying, ‘put Christ back in Christmas.’ A life of peace is trying to understand God’s peace, it surpasses all understanding, God wants us to know that peace and be happy in all situations.

    There once was a ‘Little Church in the Wildwood’, were people sang and worshiped the Lord. The modern church has everything that you would find in a Hollywood production. People come for the entertainment, some worship and offer up praises. Some leave saying, I didn’t get anything out of that service. Did they put anything into it?
    I guess that was a little harsh instead of loving.
