Merry Christmas from Faith & Freedom
As Christmas approaches, it is important to remember why we celebrate this wonderful time of year: the birth of the Savior, Jesus Christ. “And the angel said to them, Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:10-14 For the past few years, our religious freedom has come under attack, especially in December. It seems that anything having to do with Christmas or the birth of our Lord is not politically correct in secular culture. FFC founder and Chairman Ralph Reed states about the war on Christmas, “In every case, otherwise benign Christmas traditions have been banned because of the pleadings of a few who claimed they were offended, as if the Constitution guarantees that no citizen will ever experience offense. In truth, by enshrining freedom of speech (including speech of a religious context) in the First Amendment, the founders guaranteed we would be offended regularly by the publicly expressed views of others. It’s called liberty.” We urge you do stand strong during this time of year. Say “Merry Christmas,” sing your favorite Christmas songs loud and clear, and never be afraid to celebrate the real reason for the season, Jesus Christ.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
