"Lately, it seems like some of us have been confusing Jesus with Santa. After all, they both have beards and several nicknames, and often, we get caught up hoping that they bot...."
I was very suspicious of this video until toward the end when the truth came out. Watch it please whether or not you profess Christianity.
The problem with the American Santa Claus is that he is largely the creation of greedy retailers and others many of whom were far from even claiming to be Christians and who were desperate to create greedy consumers.
The celebration of the birth of Jesus, which definitely did not occur on December 25th, should be in remembrance of his message and not the American fascination with materialism.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (Matthew 25:37-40)
So why can't we all just be righteous together? Why can't we help each other to rise to this level for once? Why are there those who fight against it? Why are there so many souls so determined to be selfish even when they themselves want help when they fall and can't get out without help?
We need to come together to get it all done. No one can do it alone. Even Jesus said he can't do it alone.
