A brief outline of what this war was and is all about: The War on Christmas was basically whether or not major corporations would include the words “Merry Christmas” in their T.V. advertising and billboards.
Merry Christmas had become unacceptable in the eyes of many Democratic Congress People, as they felt it was an infringement on the ‘Seperation of Church and State’ ammendment.
Nativity Scenes, words Merry Christmas, and any reference to Jesus Christ were all considered taboo and were most promptly banned, and most corporations fell into suit as they were afraid of law suits and the like.
But in spite of all these things, we must never lose sight of what Christmas (Christ Mass) is really about: our Risen Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ who was crucified and died on the cross in an act of Love to wash away our sins.
The one who came as a baby in swaddling clothes, and was born in the lowliest of places. The one that came and bore the weight of the world, and bled, suffered, and died on a tree to take the weight of our sins to give us a chance at Eternal Life. The Ultimate display of human love, the Ultimate reason for Christmas.
So we do not just celebrate the birth of Christ, but, in essence, the birth of all of us. I am so thankful to G-d for granting me the most precious of gifts, the gift of life. And I am also deeply and spiritually thankful that He further gave us His only begotten Son. And that by accepting Jesus Christ into my heart, all of my sins are forgiven and I am able to be born again.
And when I pass from this life, as we all must do in the end, I know that I will be given a mansion in Heaven, built by G-d, and will have life everlasting with my Lord and Saviour. That is the ultimate Christmas gift, is it not? It’s not something brought by Santa Claus, riding through the starry night on a reindeer driven sleigh. It is a gift that only G-d Himself can give, and we each must must choose whether to accept it or not.
I have chosen. Have you?
Although Lucas makes a lot of important points, he doesn’t actually get around to answering the question. Fortunately, Bill O’Reilly did just that. Will there be a declaration of victory underneath the Christ tree, or just a lump of coal in your stocking? Let’s find out….
Regardless of who won the battle, the war will resume next season. The secular progressives and the ACLU will not rest until they have successfully stomped out every reference to Jesus Christ in this country, especially at Christmas.
So we must remain ever vigilant. The battle may be over for now, but the war rages on. Let’s win this one for the gipper. And for our Heavenly Father.
