Christmas and Creationists

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Yes, I know that there are many misconceptions about Christmas.
Still, I cowboy up and ride along. I'm not going to fight with people about traditions, or even if Christians are wrong for celebrating Christmas. Here's a corral-load of links with historical information and discussions on the yes-or-no of it all. I choose to celebrate in good conscience and freedom (1 Cor. 10:29-30, Col. 2:16).

Reworked "Adoration of the Shepherds" by Rembrandt, with Scripture and galaxy.

So, why do so many biblical creationists choose to celebrate Christmas? Because God the Son is the Creator (John 1:1-3, Col. 1:16, Isaiah 44:24). He humbled himself and set aside his glory to become a human (Phil. 2.7-8). Everyone has sinned (Romans 3:23), and all deserve eternal death, separation from God in Hell (Rom. 6:23, Rev. 20:12, Rev. 20:15). Jesus died on a cross for our sins, then rose from the dead on the third day (Acts 2:23-24, 1 Cor. 15:3-8). We can be reconciled to God (John 1:12, Romans 5:10).

The Creator of the universe died for this rotten, sinful guy and made him a son of the living God!

But far too many people reject his free gift of salvation (Eph. 2:8-9). Instead, even though they know that God exists, they suppress the truth and seek to deny his existence (Rom. 1.18-22), depending instead on the religion of evolutionism and their "wisdom" (1 Cor. 1:18-23). But there will be a final judgement of the unrighteous (Rev. 20:13-15, Rev. 21:8). Those of us who received the gift of salvation have a different destiny (Rev. 7:17, Rev. 22:1-5, Isaiah 1:18).

For us, there will not be presents under our tree this year due to some serious financial setbacks (we're recovering, though). As you can see from what I wrote above, I've already received the greatest gift of all.

DO NOT go to the link in the picture. The site is kaput and taken over by dangerous residents.
Charles Darwin was not born according to prophesies. He did not die for anyone's sins but his own, and he certainly was not resurrected from the dead!

We Christians not only have the best possible reason to celebrate the humble birth of God the Son, our Savior, but an opportunity to proclaim the gospel.

Happy Christmas!
