Merry Christmas to you! I have a very nice and caring Muslim friend that wishes my family and myself a Merry Christmas every year, as well as sharing an Easter wish.
What is Christmas all about anyway? If you live in Europe, chances are 1 in 5 you don’t know it is about the birth of Christ. If you live in Europe 1 in 20 think Easter is about the birth of Christ.
In America, the population that wants Christmas to be more about the birth of Christ has dropped 14% in the last four years to only 65%, see Latest Survey
It has been published that 88% of Americans still believe in some kind of God, higher power, or spiritual force. It appears to me that we are following the footsteps of Europe; we too are losing our spiritual way.
My friends, if you are in this 88% group believing in “spiritual higher power things”, this is Hinduism and not Christianity. This is the way Oprah talks. If your spiritual “thing” is not 100% the resurrected Jesus Christ, then it is just “a thing”…and a worshiped “thing” [not Christ Jesus] is an idol.
SO, what is Christmas about? The birth of our Living Savior who has already redeemed the world [lovingly paid the price for your sins]; all you need to do now is to, drop your idols and 100% believe in the resurrected Christ Jesus and celebrate His Holy birth.
Blessings and Merry Christmas to you and your families!
