are one of them, right?
Here is what Jesus thinks of your spending and folly
on your belly and your lusts:
14:15 And when one of them that sat at meat with him heard these things, he said
unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.
said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many:
sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all
things are now ready.
18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse.
The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go
and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
19 And another said, I have bought
five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused.
And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the
house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes
of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the
22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded,
and yet there is room.
23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into
the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
24 For I say unto you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste
of my supper.
you suppose there are a lot of Christmas junkies who hope to "eat bread in
the kingdom of God" who will eat flames in hell? I believe that any saint
who learns the true heritage of Christmas, but refuses to cleanse his home and
church of it, will be chastened. If you have a jolly holly Christmas with no pain,
no chastening, then you may very well be damned to hell-- a Laodicean fake. And,
that applies more to you preachers, Fundamental Baptists and all, more than the
sheep you refuse to teach.
vast majority of Fundamental Bible believing pastors I have talked to will NOT
teach their people the pagan and filthy Roman Catholic heritage of Christmas.
They know Jesus was not born in December. They know that the Gospel is NOT about
the birth of Jesus. They know the Anabaptists and Pilgrim fathers punished anyone
who observed the winter solstice. They know that the Lord Jesus Christ's Church
has cursed Christmas since the day Constantine married Jesus to Marduk.
these scurvy wimps refuse to stand up against popular custom. And, it is usually
a handful of nag women in their local church who keep them from telling the truth.
These jerkwater ecclesiastical scum then blast the Methodists for having lady
preachers and lady deacons. They talk tough about pastoral rule, but the pastor's
wife often leads the mob of Fundamentalist feminazis in defense of Satan's favorite
holy day-- Christ mass.
what is YOUR excuse?
1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly
seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and
Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful;
but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the
glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and
to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
has been rare, exceedingly rare, but we have heard almost every year of those
who have renounced the pagan rituals of Christmass. Will YOU cleanse yourself
and your church, or is it the same old folly--
Spend, spend, spend, gimmy, gimmy, gimmy.... ?
