The True Meaning of Christmas

What does Christmas mean to you? Presents? Trees adorned with ornaments? Egg Nog by the fire wearing an ugly sweater? Well y’all should know the reason for the season. Yes I’m going to get politically incorrect, and talk about the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was born Christmas Day to come and give us new life in Heaven. Born in a manger, which is more or less a pig trough, to live a perfect life, and die an ugly death for  us to join Him in Heaven. The Holiest of Holy.

The Star of Bethlehem led the Wise Men to Jesus
The Star of Bethlehem led the Wise Men to Jesus

He was born in the regime of King Herod, during which time, the Roman Empire occupied the Holy Land of Jerusalem. Three wise men had visited King Herod asking the whereabouts of Baby Jesus so they could worship Him. King Herod was not happy of the possibility of another king usurping his rule. Little did Herod realize that Jesus was the King of Kings. Herod sent soldiers to find and kill every baby boy within two years old so that Jesus could not unseat him. Mary and Joseph fled to Egypt and returned later, but not before being visited by the Wise men who had followed the star of Bethlehem, hence the meaning of the star tree topper that many people use today. The presents under the tree represent the gifts the wise men had brought, frankincense, gold, and myrrh.

A lot of atheists think we Christians borrowed, or rather stole, the story of Jesus from Pagans. Nothing could be further from the truth. We see evidence of Gods love all around us. Christmas is the celebration of the Savior’s arrival on earth in the most humble fashion. in John 3:17, it says that He did not come to condemn the world, but to save the world. What better time to share the awesome news of Christ coming to us in human form?

We get peace of mind when we surrender ourselves to God, as Philippians 4:6,7 says, “Don’t worry about anything, Instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has done.. Then you will experience Gods peace, which exceeds anything we can comprehend. His peace and love will guard your hearts and minds as we live in Christ. It’s our job as Christians to share the good news of His arrival. All this Santa Claus and Reindeer stuff is just a worldly attempt to lose focus on the Savior. image

Racism and Bigotry: The Left’s Favorite Weapons

O.k. – I have been called a racist and a bigot far too many times by liberals who don’t understand that ISIS is seeking to overtake us and force us under Shariah Law. I’m not a racist, my wife is Filipino-American, my step-sons are Filipino as well. I love them and I don’t think anything bad about the Asian race at all. One of my best friends is Hmong in fact. Islam is not a race, but rather a set of ideas, or a lifestyle. A lifestyle that allows for pedophilia, honor killings, and many other things that deprive other’s human rights.

In light of the recent events in San Bernardino, Paris, and we will never forget 9/11, I’m not sure these people will ever get it to their heads that Islam is a parasitic set of ideas. If they get offended, they kill and bomb. The Boston Marathon Bombers were no different, they were vetted refugees, and look how that turned out. We Christians have too much work to do for God to be standing around and getting our heads chopped off for not refusing Christ. Now it turns out white Christian males are most likely to be terrorist? We are the the ones crashing planes into buildings! We are not killing our co-workers after they throw us a baby shower! We are not executing people by chopping off their heads publicly for all to see. White Christian males like myself just want peace, but we still respect other cultures. Islam needs to be dealt with in a way they understand. All of the recent terrorist attacks, save the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood attack, have been carried out by Muslims. But I’m a bigot for pointing out the truth? I’m a racist for not wanting the Syrian refugees or illegal immigrants in our country because we have homeless veterans that need to be taken care of first? These men and women fought for our country, and put their lives on the line for us! They fought for the right for the ungrateful welfare abusers to trample our flag. They fought for our free speech, freedom OF (not from) religion.

The Founding Fathers would be rolling in their graves if they saw how America’s turned out. I’ll bet George Washington would also have a few choice words for our sorry excuse for a leader in the White House. Abraham Lincoln wouldn’t mince words either. Just understand that Islam is not the religion of peace like people say in the current administration. They have not contributed anything for the last 1,400 years to humanity, and they have laid waste to whatever country they are in, with the exception of US, but they are trying that now. England is practically predominantly Muslim now. Dearborn, MI is fearing for their future as a town. Tribunals for Shariah Law are popping up in Texas, but thanks to the mayors, they are getting shut down.

I am an American, not a terrorist. I will not let my country be overthrown by barbarians still living in the Dark Ages. I will not let my amazing wife fear for her life, or my sons.
