It’s really unimaginable how one man making a statement (whether he believed it or not is another question), can so influence popular opinion. He said “we are bringing Christmas back”, yes it’s the president over the other side of the pond.
I love Christmas and unashamedly wish everyone of every faith a merry Christmas. I understand the influences and commercialism blah blah blah. Like I said, I love Christmas, it’s an awesome family time like no other.
However over the past few years it’s been popular to replace Christmas with the word ‘holidays’. Do you remember the fiasco over Starbucks and removing all traces of Yuletide on their cups. Well they showed their spirit of good will re offering to pay taxes in the U.K. tut, tut…!!
Some say he courts the evangelical vote and question whether he is actually a Christian. None of those are concerns of mines.
What has shocked me is this. Supermarkets are playing Christmas carols again – not just Bob Geldoff and Santa Baby, Christmas has become popular again. And the voices against seem to be quiet to nonexistent.
Think. Is this all it takes to establish Jesus the Christ over the earth. For just one man – irrespective of his choices in life. Would declare Jesus the Christ is Lord and the world would respond.
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth (1 John 2:20)
In the age of “post-Truth”, knowing the truth requires spiritual anointing from the Lord and willingness to stand counter to popular culture.
