Those who contend there is no war on Christmas are wrong. One small segment of society attacks Christmas every year, but it’s a campaign the secularists can never win.
During the 2014 Christmas season, we experienced the usual absurd, sometimes silly attacks on Christmas trees, Christmas cookies, candy canes, wreaths and garlands, Santa and Secret Santa, stars, bells, snowmen and snow women, the colors red and green and sentences beginning with ’Twas or ’Tis. Remarkably, some few believe these are symbols that remind people of the birth of Jesus.
The power that exists in the Spirit of Christmas is so irresistible and so compelling that no attacks can disrupt, retard or stop it. As in the past, the energy and vitality that was Christmas 2014 was everywhere, unavoidable and all-pervasive.
Christmas will always be with us, and one reason is because the simple message, Love Came Down at Christmas, tugs at the hearts of all but the most spiritually barren.
God’s annual invitation to return to love is so simple and so appealing, it will never be vanquished. Those who accept the message, accept God.
“. . .and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” Luke 1:33
