Keeping things in perspective...
I try to make it a practice to patronize Christian businesses and avoid woke businesses. I recently used VistaPrint for business cards, but will now look elsewhere. Do you have an alternate suggestion?
John, your experience in regard to not being able to find any Christmas cards with a religious theme, is just another subtle example of what the New World Order has been doing to influence peoples thinking, or lack of. You raise a serious issue that needs to be addressed in regard to religion, that is; "do we need it ?". We certainly need a moral code to have any type of civilization, and that has been religions best and most valuable function, but so many religions have evolved from an original few and all this has done is create confusion and cause wars. We need to create a committee to exam what society should do with religion. When they are finished with their report we can burn them at the stake, like the infidels they are.
I liked it; you have an easy-going writing style. And, you picked a compelling example: the Christmas card thing. It seems to me that most of the overabundance of secularizing things, which goes to influence us in the very wrongest direction, are coming out of the very wrong notion that making money is an end in itself what can substitute for value judgements. Their final conclusion, which is something I have always disagreed with, is that it does not matter how a person makes money if it was legal. Otherwise, if it made money it is valid? Sounds like a good way to lose all of our traditions. Now we place value only on 'FAST CASH.' There is this idea that EVERYTHING human beings do is NECESSARILY a business or a for-profit act. Maybe some persons agree that it is a bad idea, but the fact that most everyone seems to accept it is beyond belief to me (or do only the more prominent sort of people accept it?). Indeed, almost all the prominent or well-placed or well-known people (including artists and musicians) have been implicated in this psychological attitude. It is mostly the "important" people who are influenced by this philosophy that money is all there is.
But how stupid, when we all die.
John, my wife and I noticed this when we went to purchase religious Christmas Cards at our local $ stores! We find that despicable and disrespectful.
Jesus has never abandoned us and, we will never abandon Him!
Merry Christmas and Thxs for Critical Thinking!!!
This year I ordered a variety of Christmas cards from Leanin' Tree... including religious cards that are lovely. They had a good selection and cards are made in US. Go online to find them: www.leanintree.com. A blessed Christmas to all!
Thank you, John. As always, you shine light on critical subjects, and this is one of the most compelling as Christmas approaches. I had no idea Christ was being taken out of Christmas.
Good message, John. For those who are interested in learning more about the Star of Bethlehem, as well as the seismic events attending Christ’s crucifixion, see God of Heaven and Earth, a recent release by Edify Films. Compelling scientific evidence for both events is presented in the movie.
The struggle is real. Vote with your dollars and in the future only purchase such cards from companies that recognize the 'reason for the season'. I'm sure there are such companies already in existence.
Jesus Christ delivered a message and an invitation which can also be said of our founders. At the heart of each offering is the anticipation of freedom of thought in the people addressed. Christ listeners were offered life eternal, proto-Americans a life of personal freedom. Eternal life required a life of selflessness deviation from which without repentance offered the possibility of an unhappy eternity, to put it mildly.
Personal freedom in America is bounded by jurisprudence. When odious opinions are promoted in the public sphere their curtailment is authorized by proxy when the opinions result in violations of law.
Christmas observation as a religious holiday is for people who have accepted Christ’s’ invitation. As for secular co-opting of Christmas that is their right. I recommend proselytizing the Christmas of one’s choice by observing the appropriate traditions.
Merry Christmas Mr. Droz! Thank you for your tireless hard work to bring light into this world. It is because of the efforts of yourself and others that in the midst of all of our mass destruction we have yet to fall completely into darkness.
I think I posted this video here last year, but it is so wonderful that it's worth doing so again: https://bitchute.com/video/LOEfoyc0VR1a [3:49mins]
I pray that your wife is faring better. Best wishes to you and yours.
