TITLE: THE ONE "GIFT" YOU WILL NEVER GET FOR CHRISTMAS
Parents give every kind of "gift" imaginable "for Christmas", but there is one gift, they will NEVER give.
Parents are encouraged to promise their children, their most coveted possession for Christmas. Sometimes making them put off the attainment of their most desired materialistic goal until that very day, which may be months away. All this to enhance the Pavlovian conditioning to associate the day, with fulfillment of their greatest wish or pleasure. It is a very effective method to brainwash children. And religious leaders behind the promotion of these rituals know the impressions and associations they create, will last a lifetime, and go way beyond anything a fully conscious, rational thinking mind, can produce as a later adult. The psychology will already be firmly planted deep within the subconscious mind. No matter what the truth may be. And that is certainly the problem with it.
Religious leaders who promote the practice, are essentially having to justify the unjustifiable. So in order to do that, they create narratives and explanations that are essentially untrue. Most of these kinds of religious leaders do not really care what the truth is. They don't see it as relevant. There may be many different reasons for this. But in many cases, especially with religious leaders who identify themselves as historically Protestant varieties, it is not that they do not know any better. It is simply that they do not care any better. They do not care. So what. Christmas is a lie. It's a nice lie. A pleasant lie. A good lie. A lie that makes us happy. What's so bad about that? So we will "make it" "the truth", and go on. Everyone will be happy.
But the problem that is being intentionally buried, is that there are some very very real warnings about the consequence of these beliefs and actions in the Scriptures. It has to be assumed that the religious leaders who do not care about what the Scriptures teach in this regard, simply do not care what the Scriptures teach. That should come as no surprise to most who know the general mind set of most religious leaders. But what is surprising is that they also spend their week-ends standing in pulpits all over the world, preaching from them, as though there is something true, in them. And certainly, in regard to the New Testament, they love to pretend they are following the lessons of Christ. Which of course, in doing Christmas, they are actually ignoring.
This standard of complete hypocrisy and deceit is the embrace of an ethical standard, that will permeate not only everything they teach about Christ, but everything they will practice bearing that name. And in so doing, they will also permeate their congregations with the same consciousness. So that no matter what profession they practice, no matter what political party they will lead, or no matter what school subject they teach, or no matter what business they will run, they will carry forward with them, these same set of ethics. And over time, as "Christmas" saturates the culture, and fills the calendar, it brings with it, it's moral, religious and ethical standard. And thus, transforms society into a mirror image of itself.
Proponents of Christmas will think that is a good thing, because they have been "conditioned" from childhood to think only the very best things of human nature concerning Christmas. But that itself is the effect of the intentional blindness, that it generates through the Pavlovian conditioning it instills from childhood. Because that very completely one sided view of the practice, which demands intentional blindness to everything else, is itself, a product of it's "brainwashing" culture. Just because you can only "believe" the best possible things about Christmas, doesn't mean that is actually "the truth". And that is the one "gift" you will never get for Christmas.
So, the question is, does it matter? Are the religious leaders, who simply do not care any better, right? Well, if they are, you should accept that fact, by renouncing Christianity. Because if it does not matter, then nothing in the New Testament is actually true. Including it's religion. Or it's "salvation". Because in the New Testament, both are at issue, in the practice of Rome's "Christ-mass". So it either matters, or it doesn't. And if it doesn't, then nothing else does either. Including your "salvation". So maybe you want to think that choice over, and become fully conscious of the "choice" you are "choosing", to make. Despite what "gifts" you got for "Christmas" when you were a child. Because the one "gift" your parents never gave you for "Christmas", was the truth about it. Where it came from. What it means. And why it is done. (That is the one gift you will never get for "Christmas") and that gift, really is, the gift of what the New Testament means, in the word, "salvation".
Does it matter if "Christ-mass" is not "the truth"?
(It does according to the New Testament, in the most serious way possible)
2Th 2:10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth, in order for them to be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this reason Elohim sends them a working of delusion, for them to believe the falsehood
2Th 2:12 in order that all should be judged who did not believe the truth, but have delighted in the unrighteousness.
Rev 14:8 And another messenger followed, saying, “Baḇel is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her whoring. - TS2009 Translation
The "Love of Truth", is the one gift, you will NEVER get for "Christmas".
(And YES, it Matters, if you wish to really "be saved")
