 Huh When did we start using "Happy Holiday" instead of "Merry Christmas"? I know this is not new, and I know that retailers are only interested in making money at this time of year - but why can't they use the word "Christmas" in their ads?  The closest I've seen is "Xmas"!  Dear Lord, they've taken "Christ" out of "Christmas"!  Isn't Jesus the reason for the this season?  Besides that, I've seen "Happy Kwanza" and "Happy Hanakah", so why not "Merry Christmas"?  Why is it the CHRISTIAN holiday that is mangled?  What if the retail public started using "Happy Han" or "Happy Kwan"  Would those celebrants be INSULTED? Would there be HELL TO PAY??  Where is the ACLU for Christians?  We need liberty too!  Just my humble opinion . . .

Merry Christmas and Blessings -

Hi Terri,

This has just been a small portion of what gripes me. The ACLU and other groups that are in association with them are doing all they can to take Christ/God out of our public. Even to the point of changing history in our American history books. If you look in the "Parenting" or "Politics and Political Issues" you will see that I am not hesitant in the least to preach against them and to get the truth out.

It tears at my heart to see children do not know of our Christian heritage and only know the lies that these people want them to know. You will also see many groups that I have listed and what they are doing to fight against this abomination.

Where is the ACLU for Christians?

They are the primary ones fighting against us and then boldly saying that they are not.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We belong to JESUS! Isn't that alone enough to make us happy, be MERRY, and give thanks?

Since JESUS Came Into My Heart

What a wonderful change in my life has been wrought
Since Jesus came into my heart!
I have light in my soul for which long I had sought,
Since Jesus came into my heart!

Refrain

Since Jesus came into my heart,
Since Jesus came into my heart,
Floods of joy over my soul
Like the sea billows roll,
Since Jesus came into my heart.
I have ceased from my wandering and going astray,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
And my sins, which were many, are all washed away,
Since Jesus came into my heart!

Refrain

Iím possessed of a hope that is steadfast and sure,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
And no dark clouds of doubt now my pathway obscure,
Since Jesus came into my heart!

Refrain

Thereís a light in the valley of death now for me,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
And the gates of the City beyond I can see,
Since Jesus came into my heart!

Refrain

I shall go there to dwell in that City, I know,
Since Jesus came into my heart!
And Iím happy, so happy, as onward I go,
Since Jesus came into my heart!

Refrain

May the Love of JESUS CHRIST fill your hearts and homes every day until HE comes to take us home.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Isa 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Merry CHRISTmas Terri and Everyone and a Safe Happy New Years! Grin

Jesus Christ is The Reason for the Season!

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
   19   Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

20   But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
   21   And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
   22   Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
   23   Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
   24   Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
   25   And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

1   NOW when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
   2   Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
   3   When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
   4   And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
   5   And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
   6   And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.

7   Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
   8   And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
   9   When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
   10   When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
   11   And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

I was reflecting on todays date, December 7th. I was 14 years old when the Japanese attacked us, and what I recall is that we were a Christian Nation. Since then Sin has prevaded this country and I am not surprised at Happy Holidays. Happy anything that makes money. Lord have mercy on this country, as this country has turned from His face. For us Christians we need to remain steadfast and not shop where they have taken Christ out of Christmas. Pray for this country and their leaders and may God have mercy on us all. Jerry Droney

AMEN!!

I'm going to do just that, and I'm also going to go in the opposite direction that the ACLU wants for Christmas. I'll say "Merry Christmas" whether they like it or not, and I'll add "JESUS CHRIST is KING! Maybe I'm naive, but I'm still optimistic that we might still be able to turn things around and go in the opposite direction - Back Toward GOD!

Love In Christ,
Tom

As far as I'm concerned if it wasn't because of Jesus' birth we wouldn't have ANYTHING at all.
So it's Merry CHRISTmas, JESUS is the reason

I had to quote your post instead of just responding to it because I felt the graphics were well worth displaying again.

Jesus is the reason for ALL seasons.
