JESUS vs. SANTA

Hello again folks! My good friend Joanna Livermore sent me this interesting critique of Jesus versus Santa [or is it satan?] Clause." I'll address when the LORD Jesus Christ was ACTUALLY born soon but it ain't on December 25th!
"When we carefully compare the myth of Santa Claus versus the real Biblical story of Jesus Christ, we are presented with the shocking truth that Santa has been thoroughly created to replace Jesus Christ in too many people's lives.
COMPARISON BETWEEN JESUS CHRIST AND SANTA CLAUSE

SANTA CLAUSE: THE COUNTERFEIT ACCORDING TO MYTH OF MEN

  1. Has white hair like wool
  2. Has a beard
  3. Comes in red apparel
  4. Hour of his coming is a mystery
  5. Comes from the North where he lives: North Pole
  6. Is a toy carpenter
  7. Comes as a thief in the night. Even gains entrance to homes as a thief.
  8. Omnipotent - can deliver all the toys of the world in one night
  9. Omniscient - knows if you have been good or bad, for the entire year
  10. Omnipresent - sees when you wake or sleep. Has to be everywhere at once to be able to deliver all the toys in one short night.
  11. Lives forever
  12. Lives in the hearts of children
  13. Giver of Gifts
  14. Absolute Fable [1 Tim 1:4; 4:7; 2 Tim 4:4]
  15. Sits on a throne
  16. Children are bidden to approach his throne to ask for anything they want
  17. Tells children to obey parents
  18. Bids children to come unto him
  19. Judges whether you were good or bad
  20. Father Christmas
  21. Kris Kringle [means christ child]
  22. Prayers and worship to "St. Nick" by children
  23. Lord over a host of elves [in Druidic religion, elves are demons or tree spirits]
  24. Santa says, "Ho, ho, ho ..."
  25. Symbol of World Peace, the image of the Christmas Season" [end quote]

Can you see the similarities here? Children's hearts and minds need to be protected at all times - especially in these dark days of multiplicity of deceptions. The best deceptions are often successful because the deceived often believe the myth or lie or half-truth or be "harmless". But these seeds of "legend" that are planted in the souls of our children don't always lead adult souls on the wrong road. But if young lives are not tempered with Truth [with a capital 'T'] - especially in the early years - then they are wide open when these precious little souls enter the educational system. Add a little evolutionary myth/legend/theory and then the real damage begins.

We need to be careful at this time of year for many reasons - not least that most folks are worshipping antichrist [can mean "in place of" &/or "in opposition to"] in the form of Santa on the 'birthday' of the original antichrist type - Nimrod - some three [3] months after when the Real Christ was born. So ... honouring the wrong 'Jesus' at the wrong time can only bear bad fruit me thinx. Be evangelists [as applicable]; Be Bereans; DO NOT BE DECEIVED! and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... Keith JS ... 22-Dec-2009
