|"Christ in Christmas"|
|Topic: Christmas||Type: Article||Author: A. Allison Lewis|
According to a front page story in the "Advertiser" for Dec. 7 the Anglican, Roman Catholic, United, Salvation Army, Presbyterian and Pentecostal churches are planning a march with the theme "Is Christ in Your Christmas?"
What Christ could a thoroughly ecumenical crew like this ask you to put in your Christmas? The Christ of the BibleGod come in flesh to save His people from their sins? The bastard Christ of Modernism and Liberalism Or the impotent Christ of Romanism which continually "sacrifices" him in their Masses?
The PROSTITUTE (harlot) of Revelation 17And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: and upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH [REV 17:4, 5]. I am aware that the Protestant Reformers said the Church of Rome was the "whore" referred to in this passage, but I do not believe that this is entirely true, unless she is the "Mother" and the rest of the apostate, modernistic and liberal churches are the "harlots" mentioned in verse 5. The developing ecumenical church movement as it works towards a one world church is the prostitute.
Unequal YokeBe not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what concord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has he who believes with an infidel? [2COR 6:14-15].
Today's churches are, on the whole, populated by hell-bound sinners. The preachers appeal to folk just as they are. The window dressing of respectability is simply laid over unconverted sinners. The appeal is made to folk in our "contemporary culture." This makes it easy for a man to be one of the boys during the weeklisten to a dirty story, take a "wee nip" of the bottle, and be a man of the world. On Sunday he puts on a clean shirt, assumes a pious front and teaches a Sunday School class, ushers, or gives a testimony. If he is a singer, he sings on Sunday, "Everybody ought to love Jesus," but during the week he can appear in a night club and sing "Everybody's doing it." The Bible demands much moreholiness. Hebrews 12:14 puts it bluntly: Holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.
It is vain indeed to talk of putting Christ back in Christmas until He and His Word is first put back in the pulpits of the land.Come out of Her, My people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues [REV 18:4].
