Christmas: Most Churches are Lazy!

Christmas: Most Churches are Lazy!

Ok. Not all. But many are.

Now let me get specific since I've got your enraged attention.

Most churches are lazy when it comes to Christmastide. That's why I'm posting this ahead of time. Fair warning.

Most churches do not position on their properties in prime location a nativity scene  -  lighted.

Yet biblical Christians each season contest for "Christ in Christmas.." They write letters. They smash the ACLU. They appeal to town officials for town center's nativity scenes. And so forth.

All the while, as an ardent Christian believer, I drive by one church building after another over decades to see blank front lawns during December. There is the usual church sign. Yes. But where is the nativity scene?

When I do spy the scene, I'm overjoyed to think that clergy and laity actually spoke with their faith on the church lawn throughout those Christmas weeks.

This should happen all across North America  -  including increasingly unbelieving Canada.

With secularism threatening our biblical, traditional faith, as secularism has taken over European, Christmas is THE time to advance the gospel message of Savior Christ arriving with salvation's gift.

So, yes, it is fact.

Too many churches are lazy. They are handing the nativity scene witness over to the village library? I don't think so. The school yard? Hardly. The mall? Why the mall?

11 days to go.

Let's do our homework, believing friends. Get that nativity scene shined up now for before long the fight for right will start all over again. At least in 2011 we don't have to be hypocrites because we will have put our witness where our church lawn is.


CHRIST: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16
