Lie for a season


As Christmas approaches millions of parents will lie to their children. Mothers and Fathers will encourage their children to make lists of gifts they want from a false god called Santa. The ninth commandment is "Though shalt not lie" However many will overlook this commandment during the festive season. Jesus understood this well when he said "You reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition" Mark 7:9. To the visible disgust of many we never told this lie to our daughter but told her plainly the presents come from us. She has in no way 'missed' out and I feel God has blessed us in that. To encourage worship of Santa is to incite covetness, materialism and greed. Interestingly Santa is an anagram of Satan. The second commandment forbids us to bow down to anything other than God and the first commandment to always put God first. In millions of homes the God of the Bible will be the last thing on many peoples minds. The false god Santa will be exalted amongst the unregenerate and the real God will receive no thanks for life, family, food and all the other common blessings he has made available to all.

Amen! How very true this is and the view many have, exalting Santa over the Savior.
