Have a Happy Christ-x Day!
I see it so much as I drive around. I see the fat man in the
red suit with the long white hair and beard and "Merry X-mas" on
many of the signs. Merry X-mas? When a person takes Christ out,
he doesn't have anything. Christ Jesus said, "The thief cometh
not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come
that they might have life, and that they might have it more
abundantly." The thief (Satan) is stealing from people whether
it's their sanity, their hope, or their peace- what little they
have. Satan is destroying families, children through incest,
exploitation, etc.; wives and husbands through adultery,
jealously, wrong priorities or whatever else he can come up with.
He desires to keep you dead spiritually until you die physically
in your sins by trying to get you to put off Jesus through
temptations that he puts in your life such as drugs, sex outside
of marriage, just plain procrastination. Even so-called good
goals like working hard to support your family, but even work can
become a god. The focus can be money and the formula is work=
money = happiness = peace = security = life. The foundation is
wrong because the focus is wrong. The focus is self and self
This particular holiday is when we have the most suicides. A
time of the year that is filled with happiness for many is the

money if any. To really celebrate this holiday season, our
outlook should be on him, sharing the Answer to life's problems.
The Answer to our sin problem with the answers to the problems,
temptations, trials that come our way each and every day.
Satan mixed paganism into Christianity through the Roman
Catholic church. Using just one of many examples is when they
made Saturnalia, which was a pagan festival to the sun, occurring
on December 25th, Jesus' birthday. Most historians will readily
agree that Jesus was born around September. Almost since its
inception, Roman Catholicism has been incorporating paganism into
their church and they are still doing it up till this very day.
Even though the date is wrong. Jesus Christ is the same. Come to
him for forgiveness and life. He'll make this time and any other
time of the year worth celebrating. So in closing, "Have a Happy Christ-x day"
today and everyday. Keep Christ in and take the mas[s] out, it's not
