3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
This will shock most people who read this, because usually when I tell people this I’m called crazy or told I’m taking things too far, but I don’t see any other way to describe it; Santa Claus is a false god.
I don’t have any links to attach here to back it up, but seriously stop and think about it.
“He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. He knows when you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake”
So Santa is all seeing, all knowing. Be good to please Santa. He’ll reward you for pleasing him. In recent years I’ve actually seen people praying to Santa. Amelia Pond did in an episode of Doctor Who. That’s how she’s introduced!
If Christmas is about Jesus, why are there so many carols praising Santa, saying he’s coming soon?
The idea of Santa is a very dangerous one. Not only because he’s a false idol, but also because your kids will eventually find out Santa Claus is a lie. So when you start telling them about the oddly similar Jesus, why should they believe you this time? It could just be another myth, like Santa.
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
So let me ask you something; Do you believe in Santa, or do you believe in Jesus?
