Merry Christmas- Christ is Lord and Savior

Our forbears recognized the importance of celebrating Christ as King. As Lord and not just savior.

Our current rebellious culture has de-emphasized God's claim as rightful Lord of mankind and instead focused on His role as savior. But that is not the full gospel. Jesus is both Lion and Lamb. Once His role as King was put off, next came the savior part as godless forces (some glad in the garments of the clergy) started downplaying the reality and seriousness of our sin and the need for repentance.

There are kings in this world, their kingship is valid, but it is God who raises them up, and who brings them down. The kings have a King themselves. The lords have a Lord. And this declared doctrine of God is what rankles many of the mighty whose position has gone to their heads. They chaff against the very idea that there is a King over them.

When I look at the madness being pursued by our national government, it brings me great comfort in this Christmas season to know that though these reckless people have been given authority for a time, they are not the final authority. We all will answer to the King of King, and the Lord of Lords.

Christmas is not a christian holiday. According to the bible Jesus wasn't even born in December. The early Christians branded the existing solstice/Saturnalia celebrations as a PR move. I know you guys don't let the truth get in the way of your opinion, but you might want to look into it some time.
