Christmas: "It Ain't What It Looks Like"

Former New York Yankees great Yoggi Berra once said, "Sometimes a thing ain't what it looks like."

With the recent re-election of the most anti-biblical President in US history---including strong advocacy for homosexual "marriage" and abortion, and with Washington State following his lead off the moral cliff and legalizing marijuana to further dull the senses, sometimes we get the perception that the majority of Americans have abandoned biblical values and assigned them to the ancient past.

Adding to this misconception, atheist groups publicly attack Mary, Joseph, Jesus and all things related to the true meaning of Christmas.

It seems, sometimes, everyone has abandoned the Christian faith.

But, "It ain't what it looks like."

A Rasmussen Survey earlier this month found a very large majority of Americans feel that Christmas should be more about Jesus and less about Santa.


Rasmussen reports that 76% of American adults believe that Christmas should be more about Jesus.

While public education has demonized the idea of even using the word "Christmas" on public property, the public, who theoretically own the property, strongly disagree.

This year, 82% of the "property owners" told Rasmussen they think religious holidays should be celebrated in public school. Including Christmas. This is up 3% over last year.

This past April, Rasmussen found that 77% of Americans believe that Jesus rose from the dead, as Scripture teaches.

Christmas is a national holiday and there is no legitimate legal reason why it should not be celebrated, nor is there any legitimate legal reason for public schools and city halls to be "Christmas free zones."

A small minority who violently oppose Christianity and Christmas have created a misconception that the public agrees with them. The public does not agree with them.

Through intimidation and fear of lawsuits the school districts can't afford, they have been silenced and shelved through fear.

Christmas is a "fear not" time of year.

While secularists and atheists feverishly work to exclude Jesus from His birthday celebration, a vast majority of Americans disagree.

Join the majority. Fear not! Say "Merry Christmas." Sing "Joy To The World, The Lord Has Come, Let Earth Receive Her King."

Hear the bells on Christmas day. Oh come let us adore Him. Sing the Hallelujah Chorus----well at least listen to it.

Be Joyful. Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Informed. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.

  4. This was a great message. I fear for those who are actually blaspheming Christmas, Jesus, and the Ten Commandments. As Jesus said, "They do not know what they do." Their sarcasm, their rude language, and verbal aggression against the Almighty will be "coming home" to rest at their feet someday. We need to pray for them, although it is hard to do against their hate. Our God is a merciful God. Satan does rule the world, but his rule will end soon.

  5. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him and he with me. The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. Revelation 3:20-21

  6. All these stats are irrelevant. The apparent majority is doing nothing to stand up and be heard. If it had we wouldn't be preparing to suffer through four more years. I am not advocating giving up, just pointing out that the alleged believers will go quietly as they have in the past.
    May God have mercy on us...

    1. I have to say I agree that the majority is doing nothing, to many Christians are blending in with the world, sad to say. God do have mercy on us.

  7. Thank you so much for those uplifting statistics!! I wish my favorite cable news would not give time to the atheists they have on but my husband says it is good to make people aware that "they" are out there. I just finished reading Bill O'Reilley's Killing Kennedy and was feeling quite down about the people our nation holds in high esteem even though their morals are publicly so opposite of what the Bible teaches so your article was a great lift to me this morning!! God Bless!!
