The Christmas Myth

         Every year The Christmas Myth is resurrected and people all over the world go along with it as if it was a fact to be celebrated. There are songs, stories, movies, clothing, pictures and more associated with The Christmas myth. A myth, by definition, is a “an idea or story that is believed by many people but that is not true.” The proper meaning of Christmas is that time of the year when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah who would come for the purpose of paying the penalty for our sin debt.  Satan has always done everything in his power to try and prevent the coming of the Saviour, but he failed. He tried to defeat the Saviour by having Him crucified, but that failed also. Jesus Christ is God, He is God the Son who left heaven’s glory and came to earth as was foretold in Isaiah 7:14: “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” The word “Immanuel” means “God with us.” Jesus is the name given to the Messiah at His birth.   Mary, His human mother conceived Him of the Holy Ghost: “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” {Matthew 1:18-21}

Why Christmas?

The Gospel Tract, “Why Christmas?” is a 6-page tract that answers the question. The following is from the tract:

“There seems to be a great misunderstanding about Christmas; there are all sorts of ideas about it, so it should not be a surprise if someone asked the question, “Why Christmas?”  In a small tract like this it’s difficult to go into any great detail about Christmas, so I shall be brief and condense it.
In the world of marketing and retail sales, Christmas is all about sales: play the seasonal music, advertise and advertise some more, and entice people to spend money.  Gifts are nice to give and receive but that is NOT what Christmas is about.
For some people, Christmas should not be celebrated by Christians, but that does not hinder them from accepting the gifts others give them. One of the arguments put forth is the Christmas tree and its alleged pagan origin.  Then there are those who argue about the date Christmas is traditionally celebrated in America. (There are some good arguments for and against December 25.)  In some countries the Christmas celebration date is other than December 25.  The fact of the matter is, the exact date is not nearly as important the actual event, and that brings us to the question, “Why Christmas?”

This tract is available for a gift of $2.00 per 100 copies, plus postage. It is an excellent tool for witnessing during the Christmas season.

Which Church?

which churchWe are living in a time when there seems to be an abundance of churches everywhere. Some are large and some are small. Some are fancy and some are plain. Some are in the city and some are in the country. One church says one thing, while another says something entirely different. Because of this, many people have become confused and are now asking, “How do I know which church is the right church?” Allow me to share with you some practical suggestions on how to determine which church is the right church. To do this, we need an understanding of what a church is.

To many, the church is a building. Actually, the church is not a building, but rather it is an assembly of people. The building is where the church meets. In the Bible the word church is “ekklesia” and it means an assembly – more specifically a called out assembly. It is used in the New Testament as a called out assembly of Christian believers. The word “ekklesia” has been translated “church” in our Bible. Christian believers are those who have repented of their sin, and by faith alone in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, have received Him into their hearts as Personal Saviour.

Many religious organizations call themselves a church, but they are not. Even though they may be an assembly of people, they are not the true church because they do not believe the Bible. A true church will believe and preach the following: . . .

What The Unsaved Have

The Bible lists several things that unsaved people definitely have. As we read down through the list, we soon discover that these are not the most desirous things to have. However, at the very end we have God’s alternative.

Beginning at the top of the list, we find that the unsaved person has: . . .

Warranted For Life

warrantedWhen a product is purchased, it often comes with a warranty, the terms of which may vary. The warranty may be good for a 30, 60, or 90 day period or even as long as 1-year or more and cover such things as parts and labor. But, the warranty is only as good as its underwriter or broker, no matter how good the terms of thewarranty may be. For example, let’s say you bought something that had an unconditional, lifetime warranty. Alas, the item begins to develop problems, so you try to use the warranty to have it repaired, only to find out that there was a “fine print” clause, or that the company is no longer in business. Is the warranty worth anything? Obviously, it is not. Disappointment and frustration are bound to follow. After all, you did not get what you thought you did, and then when a defect showed up the warranty was no good. Disappointed? Yes! Frustrated? Yes! And there’s nothing you can do about it – you’re stuck with a broken product. Did you know that there is a “product” that you will never be disappointed with, and that it comes with a warranty that never expires, no matter what? That’s right, it does exist but it cannot be bought for any amount of money. If you are interested, read on and I’ll tell you how you can get it, for free! . . .

Time & Eternity

“What’s the hurry? I have plenty of time,” someone may say. Alas though, as he lingers, timecontinues to march on, at a snail’s pace, but nonetheless, continuing onward. Time – though not seen, still it exists; though not heard, yet its presence is felt, for all experience it. Timemay be measured by clocks and calendars, but it cannot be harnessed nor restrained. Though the clocks may be stopped, the seconds continue to pass by, unimpeded. As time advances onward, its course never changing, eternity awaits its arrival. Eternity – it has no beginning or end, for it is infinite. In the eternal state, time has no meaning, for it ceases to exist – it is consumed by eternity. Sooner or later for all of mortal mankind, time runs out as eternity beckons. No matter what the status of an individual’s life, time and eternity wait for no man! . . .

The Verdict Is In

If someone would have asked me 15 years ago to describe a “born again” person, I would have given the example of a phony, self-righteous person who, after “getting religion,” would use the title to somehow vindicate himself from any wrong doing and excuse his behavior.

The moment I became “born again,” however, I realized what the term truly meant: that I was eternally forgiven from all my sins and I had a right standing before God. And I know it! And it’s Biblical! And it’s imperative! . . .

The Symbol Of Freedom

In New York harbor, standing on approximately ten acres of land, is the Statue of Liberty. Standing there with her torch raised up to the sky, she greets all who would enter New York harbor. To the United States of America and the world, the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of freedom.

Nearly two thousand years ago on a hill called Mount Calvary stood a cross, an instrument of death for criminals. In time it became a symbol of death. No doubt many crosses were erected on Calvary on which many people died. But on this one “special” cross was One who did not deserve to be there. He was completely innocent of any crime whatsoever. He was there, however, because of you and I. This One who hung on that cross was Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He was there as our substitute, for we read, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” (Gal. 3:13) As our substitute, . . .

The Price Of A Soul

price of a soulDOWN through the ages there have been many items that man has termed as being “priceless,” or invaluable. Priceless objects have a variety of forms. For instance, to a stamp collector a certain stamp is so rare that it is “priceless.” To a coin collector a certain coin is so rare that it is “priceless.” To the art collector a certain piece of art, and to a book collector a certain book, and so on. In some cases a person will risk everything, even his own life to obtain that “priceless” object.

Perhaps the most universal and cherished “priceless” object of all is freedom. Nations go to war, committing all they have, literally, just to preserve their freedom – it is “priceless.” Husbands and sons, and in some cases even daughters and mothers, go forth to fight and die for their freedom – it is “priceless.”

Of all the “priceless” objects, none are eternal, for sooner or later they will pass away.

There is one other “priceless” object that we have not mentioned. It is not only “priceless,” it is eternal. This object has had a life given and blood shed for it. What is it? The eternal soul of a human being. Your eternal soul! . . .

The Maze Of Life

maze of lifeHave you ever tried to do a maze puzzle? It’s one of those puzzles where you go in one end, and try to find the way out. You go way, only to find a dead end, so you try another, sometimes backtracking in an effort find the correct route. There’s only one way through the maze and you have to try every option available.

Well, here you are, in this “maze” of life seeking the source of true contentment and happiness. You’ve already tried other routes, all of which ended with disappointment and a dead end. “Another route,” you say to yourself, “I’ll try another way!” The way of material things – “If I can only buy that new car, dress, suit, boat, etc., then I’ll be satisfied.” And so you did, but only to find another dead end and disappointment. Other routes? Yes, you’ve tried them all; the route of new job, new town, new friends, new hobby, new entertainment, new this, and new that. You even went so far as to try the route of “church” or “religion”, but that didn’t work either. The maze of life; there’s only one route or path through it that leads to contentment and happiness. Want to know what it is, the solution to the maze? OK, here it is. . . .
