      I hope you won't be decking your halls with boughs of holly, kissing under mistletoe, or decorating a Christmas tree, or celebrating with a feast of winter foods; they are oh so pagan. Some heavy repentance will be required for following the abominable practices of the heathen nations.

        Right on, really! Thanks for the post. Let's pray many and not the few will heed. It never hurts to hope - that is the number one thing this world needs right now, a complete turning to the true God and His ways, not the world's ways of pagan practices that hides the truth from starving minds.

        You do realize that Pagan traditions are for Pagans, Islamic traditions are for Muslims, Christian traditions are for Christians, etc., etc.

        It's the spirit infused in the tradition by the person hanging the hollly, mistletoe etc. Actions, in and of themselves, are not tied to anything in particular. It's the thought behind them that determines the intent and meaning.

          Hi Emile, I agree with what you say and my family will be doing all the usual Christmas stuff. I was just being facetious in my post. smile

            smile I'm so glad to hear that. You always post so philosophically, I was surprised to think you worried about silly stuff like that.

    I wonder if anyone actually looked at the cartoon posted.  I started this thread as a joke thread.

      I noticed.
      And (no joke) it would be sweet to think we might get some wise men in Washington D.C. (or get the current ones to wise up!).
      But who knows? 
      And I think...even if Jesus were to come again and give us all a second chance (which He won't, 'cause His sacrifice was once and perfect and cannot be re-done), there'd still be multiple numbers of people who either wouldn't believe it or would deny Him....
      But again, Merry Christmas, Virgil!  smile

    Yeah, nice cartoon, Virgil. And Merry Christmas. May the spirit of Christ be with you always.

    Wise men in D.C.? Perhaps the evil hordes of Revelation are gathering. Corruption is going unpunished, evil-doers are getting presidential pardons and false wars have been started out of greed and a lust for more power. Al Qaeda may be one of the monsters, but another may be sitting closer to home (in America, that is).

    And perhaps we will all be wearing the "mark of the beast" soon, before we can continue with any commerce. Perhaps an electronic chip courtesy of the Rockefellers, Wall Street Bankers and their ilk. And somehow it will all seem conveniently "necessary."

    The erosion of American freedoms is somewhat sexy in its sinister secretness. Restrictive controls on travel are now in place, all because of the false war concocted by the rich -- the ones behind the face of terrorism. And congress is considering restricting our speech, starting with the Internet. That's right; it's happening right now!

    I remember when Nelson R. was asked not to be VP because it would attract too much attention to the family. He had his day in the sun and it barely caused a ruffle of anyone's feathers that one R. company was found to be selling arms to the enemy. Oops!

    Why the dark tones in this holiday season? Well, we may be having some tough times ahead. We need to remember throughout them that God and Jesus love us. He knew the forces of evil would gather and what tools they would bring to bear on our brothers and sisters. The time is at hand. From the resurrection of Israel to the nuclear furnace (great star) of Wormwood (Chernobyl in Ukrainian), the pages are being turned toward Armageddon. The signs have already begun to unfold.

      Wow. That has to be the strangest way anyone has expanded on the Merry Christmas sentiment. I'd hate to see your Advent Calendar. smile

      Cool, I saw a guy on a soapbox standing on a street corner waving a bible in his hand saying pretty much the same things.

      Most people wouldn't make eye contact with him and just moved along.

      Was that you by any chance?
