Christians have become cowards, a shame on Christianity and on Christ. Christians have
They became cowards because every year, they dare not say a word of truth in defending their values, tradition and feasts to the point where they are afraid and ashamed of wishing ‘Merry Christmas.’ They live in fear of hurting others’ feelings, but they neither fear nor care about hurting the feelings of their own
Retailers, the commercial industry, and the mass media continue to discriminate against Christians, commercializing their feasts and showing no respect, and yet, Christians fail to raise their voices and ask for what is rightly theirs. The world told them that not everyone is Christian, thus they cannot use Christian expressions in stores decoration, but wait a minute…not everyone is Jewish, but in the same stores you see signs of Happy Hanukkah, and not everyone is Muslim, but you see signs saying Happy Eid. Doesn’t it upset Christians that all other religions, including atheists, are offered respect and protection in schools and universities more so than Christians? Christians are not allowed to mention Christ’s name or sing Christmas songs without some form of backlash. Even the Christmas tree became the tree of fortune. Just about everything that society used to consider wrong and unhealthy has become acceptable in our country, except mentioning the name of Christ or His blessed feast.
Would you like to know why this has happened? This is a result of Christians’ cowardice. Inside their churches and temples, they jump and scream “Hallelujah, Christ is Lord and Master,” but when they leave their churches, they act like lost sheep, like cowards. They are afraid to hurt people’s feelings if they show their cross or their Christian faith, but they do not care to hurt the dignity of their Lord who said “Go therefore and make disciplines of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of The Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Mathew 28:19-20); and who said, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have
Yes, they are cowards. A cup of coffee for them from Starbucks is more important than the dignity of Christ, and God’s commandment which says that “For
Why economically support these people who are constantly offended by your expression of faith? Why do they get offended when we say Merry Christmas? How are we offending them? Is it because we are wishing them peace on earth and joy to their hearts? Why are they bothered?
They are bothered because it reminds them of Christ who came for the salvation of mankind.
This hate and blatant bigotry against Christianity
These people and companies, and their social engineering
This requires courage, and Christians have become cowards because they do not know Christ as they should, nor the holy Fathers of the Church who accepted gruesome death after gruesome death as the price for their faith.
Christians, you must remember; life without dignity has no meaning. Remember who you are, and who your God is, and who your forefathers are, those who challenged emperors, kings, great heresies, great suffering, death itself, and all manner of onslaught against them and the faith, to witness the One who died on the cross, for their salvation, your salvation, for the salvation of your children, and that of the world.
Teach your children what courage, manhood and womanhood are. Do not let this Christmas go by like those before. If the world wants a war, based on their bigotry and hatred against us and our Lord, let us declare another war based on love, wisdom, and courage. Wherever we go, let us proclaim that Christ is born and let us wish a Merry Christmas to everyone, Let us decorate our homes with lights. Let us decorate our hearts with Christ’s light, with courage and love for God first and our
The Lord said to be meek like a lamb, gentle like doves, but he also said also be wise
Christians: rise like your Lord rose from the tomb. Rise from your death to life, from shame to dignity. Be, in this coming feast, the presence of the angels in this darkened society and illuminate, without fear or cowardice, by saying loudly “Merry Christmas” to everyone, declaring that Christ is born, Hallelujah! Whether they like it or not, it is a Merry Christmas, and because it is merry, we repeat with the angels; “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, and good will among men.”
Amen, Amen, Amen.
