Is the Lord leading you, as a born again Christian, to withdraw from the Christmas celebrations. If He is, I hope this little poem will be an encouragement to you, because you will be in the minority. If you haven’t thought much about it, perhaps this will be food for thought. Also, in this day of ecumenism, Christmas has become a great catalyst for unbiblical unity among professing Christians and even those of other faiths. Interesting.
1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD – A Poem
Pagan customs, and pagan roots,
Add in God’s Word, mix in some truth.
What is the harm, a little fun?
A good time had by everyone.
The risen King, in a manger,
Have we Christians seen the danger?
Little statues, God still infant,
Though He reigns this very instant.
All the lost, they see a baby,
Not their Judge, He will one day be.
Catholic doctrine, holy family,
Obscure Jesus, highlight Mary.
This picture speaks a thousand words,
But certainly no Gospel heard,
Repent, believe, the mercy call,
Blood atonement needed by all.
Christmas, Christ’s Mass, it is a shame,
Many have come in Jesus’ Name,
Deceiving hearts around the world,
Of multitudes, numbers untold.
It’s Christmas and it’s time to spend,
The stores make most their money then.
Is this the Jesus that we know,
Are these the things the Bible show?
The manger scenes and Christmas trees,
Is Jesus honored by all these?
What does the Bible have to say,
About our Christmas and displays?
Doing what’s right in our own eyes,
Or heed God’s word, to make us wise?
The world loves Christmas, that’s a clue,
Hope this comforts more than a few.
