December 31, 2017 – January 6, 2018

This week extreme cold and extreme hot temperatures spanned the Globe.  Protests and War continued to take lives.  The Pope spoke of peace while a Catholic headmaster was jailed for abusing children.  Hypocrisy was not limited to the religious leaders.  Trump increased military spending and conflicts in 2017.  The first Supermoon of 2018 shinned brilliantly and a volcano erupted for the first time in recorded history!  Be sure to select each box for additional details.

Traditions Make Void the Word of God

The Christmas Tree, advent calendar, Christmas stocking, the mistletoe and candle light services are all traditions followed as a way of celebrating the Christmas Holiday.  God’s Word warns that traditions make void the Word of God, therefore, you should stop and ask yourself, “Is God referring to any of my traditions?”  How exactly do traditions make the Word of God “void”?

Santa Claus is coming to town so hide your children

Pedo-Santa
Santa Claus or pedophile?

“Santa Claus is Coming to Town” was first sung on Eddie Cantor’s radio show in 1934 and is the third most popular Christmas song of all time.  Jolly old Saint Nick or Santa Claus was an Orthodox Catholic Priest in the 3rd century and due to his habit of secret gift giving he became the patron saint of children among other things.  When you consider that the Catholic Church is the most pedophilic organization to ever exist, the words to this song are downright scary.  How would you feel if a pedophile was saying these things to your child.

Santa Claus is Coming to town

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

 

Santa Claus – Saint, false god or Pedophile Priest?

Who is Santa really? And why do parents completely ignore the fact that the origins of this practice are paganism, materialism, consumerism and pedophilia?

Roman Catholic Bishop "Santa Claus"
Roman Catholic Bishop Nicholas, “patron saint of children and altar boys”

With the rampant pedophilia within the Roman Catholic clergy, why isn’t the connection made between the massive child abuse and this custom of giving the children over to such a fantasy figure of a man who “knows if they’ve been bad or good”?

The image of “Santa Claus” is nothing more than a marketing ploy to make the merchants of the earth rich, while the children are taught to “pray” to him as a “false god” for all their wants and wishes and made to believe that if they’re “good” those wishes will be fulfilled. It is idolatry and evil in the eyes of God and it only serves to provoke Him to anger!

Trump’s Thanksgiving Proclamation, God’s Answer

On Thanksgiving Day every year, the President makes a Thanksgiving Proclamation to look back at the year and give Thanks to God.  Trump kept with this tradition, but is Thanksgiving and the things Trump spoke of in-line with God?

“God is Not the God of the Dead”

Halloween and the Days of the Dead

Halloween (“Holy Eve”), All Soul’s Day, All Saint’s Day and the Day of the Dead will be here shortly. But what are the roots of these special Days of the Dead? When we trace them all the way back to their origin, we find they came from ancient Egypt when the people were caused to worship and make sacrifices to their dead Pharaoh. The name translated ‘Egypt’ in the Bible is actually ‘Mitzraim’ which was one of the sons of Noah’s son, Ham. The name means “oppression.”

What is idolatry?

This probably seems like an odd question since the subject of idolatry is one of the most repeatedly covered topics in Scripture.  The question however, is not whether God commands against idolatry, which He most assuredly does, but what exactly is idolatry?  The argument has been made that when praying to an image or a statue, it is not idolatry as long as it’s done in reverence to the person or “saint” the image represents, and as long as you do it in worship of and love for God.

In Ex 20 (the Ten Commandments) God commands against worshiping “graven images or any likeness” stating “You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them.”  God is so adamant about this that it takes three verses to cover this one commandment and He refers to the idolaters as “them that hate Me”.

Do any of these men hate God?

Webster defines idolatry as “the worship of a physical object as a god.”  This is a very simple and concise definition, but it does not cover the full scope.  What about the worship of God through a physical object?  Does God appreciate your worship even if it comes through a statue or a painting or a “holy” wall or a big black box?  As long as you are worshiping God why does it matter how you do it?
