GLORY IN THE HIGHEST !
Once again the holiday season of
Christ's Birth is near. What should
we do as Christians, knowing that
December 25, is in reality the birth
of the pagan god, Tamuz and not
Christ Jesus, the True God and
Saviour of the world ?
I will share with you how my family
view this season celebrated world
wide by people of many different
religions and cultures.
First of all, even though it is pagan
at it's source, we have found that
it is the one time in the year when
the whole world is reminded that
an event did take place in a far
away village called Bethlehem, which
has effected the whole course of
history and that a large part of the
world is governed in time by the
birth of the Christian Messiah ! Like it
or not the whole heathen world is
reminded of the birth of Christ !
Also, we find that we can give a
card to family and friends depicting
this event, and they will not be
offended that you are pushing your
religion on them but the true spirit
of Christ's birth, the spirit of giving
and sending greetings of joy is felt
by even unbelievers !
One of the joyful aspects of the season
is also the getting together of Family
and Friends made possible because
most of them will have some time
off from work in which to sit down
together for a special meal prepared
by several of the ladies from each
home ! Sharing some simple gifts
as tokens of the love we have for
We believe we should not let the devil
steal the whole time but give him
serious competition exposing his
lies and gently bringing seeds of Truth.
We love to sing the many beautiful
hymns and songs uplifting the Christ
Child and Christ the Saviour of
the world !
And let us not forget to give a gift to
Jesus in offerings for the poor
and the proclamation of the message
of Christ's love for every sinner.
Glory to God in the highest,
on earth, peace to all people !
We love to sing with the Angelic
Choir who still sing the glorious
song they sang that special night
while the Shepherds were watching
over their sheep !
