“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8 NIV
There is a popular tv show called “To Tell The Truth” it is based upon deception and truth. The contestants on the show solemnly fabricate with sincere persuasion that leaves the questioning panelist guessing who the real person is. Then at the end of the episode, the real person is revealed. That’s how real life is too. Many times people lie just about everything especially pretending to be someone they are not. One of the biggest and oldest fairy tales that is consistently told is the story and tradition of Santa Claus.
It is told and celebrated by Christians too. The fairy tale of good old Saint Nick, a man with a long white beard, fat belly, wearing a red and white trimmed suit with a wide black belt, black boots, carrying a giant red bag filled with toys, riding in a red sleigh with a herd of reindeers and one of their noses glows, sliding down a chimney leavening toys for “only” good boys and girls! I rest my case because it’s so much more to this very old fabricated traditional tale that has mentally confused children and canceled out the real meaning of CHRIST-mas, a Holy celebration in the Christian community. What can we do to put an end and remove this deceptive, distracting shadow over CHRIST-MAS?
WE CAN DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT! Put Santa Claus out! Take that lie out of your Christian CHRIST-MAS celebrations. Then as a member of the Body of Christ, “TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH.” We can teach the whole truth without adding the world’s fairy tales in the name of extra joyful fun for kids. JESUS doesn’t need extra because JESUS is the EXTRA. The memory and celebration of the birth of JESUS do not need fabricated embellishments.
CHRIST-MAS is amazing, exciting, joyful, and fun-filled all by itself. It is a prophesied, life-giving, beautiful true story that still brings Love, Joy, Peace, and Hopes to everyone all year long. Come now, let us, GOD’S dear children tell everyone the real truth about JESUS’ birth without fairy tales this CHRIST-MAS SEASON. Our King and Savior deserve for the world to know the real truth about His powerful majesty and great love for EVERYONE. He deserves for all CHRISTIANS to excommunicate themselves with the world’s beliefs and traditions and TELL THE TRUTH. Amen.
The true legacy of JESUS’ birth is the real reason we celebrate the CHRIST-MAS season.
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
Thank you for your everlasting light of truth and caring love for your dear children and the world at large. May the whole truth about JESUS, the savior of the world is told to everyone this 2021 CHRIST-mas season. - Amen in JESUS name.

“Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life.” -Corrie Ten Boom.
