THE CHRISTMAS JOY
Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities. The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their music. The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning. The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!
The two words, “enjoy” and “joy” are certainly related. But they are not the same. It is possible to “enjoy” something, that is really not “joyful”. For example, drug addicts might “enjoy” the drug to which they are addicted. But the addiction is not “joyful”. And it is not “joy” that drives them compulsively as a slave, to the use of the drug. In the same way, “Christmas” might be something many people “enjoy”, but it is not “joy” that drives them to it. And “joy” is not what it produces. “Enjoyment” yes perhaps, but “Joy”, no.
The “essence” of the “Christmas spirit” is the propagation of a very big “lie”. In fact, “spiritually”, it is probably the biggest “lie” you will ever face in your life. The “extent” to which that “lie” reaches, is almost unimaginable to the common person. But once you begin to “dig into” what it really is, and what it has really done, both to whole societies and individual “Christians”, it is truly an “amazing disgrace” in its “scope”. The deception is so massive, it is almost of a magnitude, that cannot even be “believed”. And yet, that is precisely what it is.
One of the “Lies” it tells about itself, is that it is full of “Joy”. It refers to itself as “the Joy of Christmas”. The “season of Joy”. The “Christmas Joy”. But if you “believe” that propaganda, you are going to end up with a very “odd” definition of “Joy”.
If you take the “propaganda” blindfold off, you will see what a “delusion” those “propaganda” slogans actually really are. And if you “believe” them, it will be the first step in the “delusion” that ends in Biblical Christians, worshiping Lucifer, and insisting their worship of Satan, is really “Christ”.
Part of that “delusion” of calling black, white, and white, black and north, south, and south, north, spiritually, is “believing” that “Christmas” is a time of “Joy”. When factually and statistically, it is literally the most dangerous, saddest, most depressive and most emotionally divisive time of the entire year. And it is no “accident” that the annual “gloom” of this time of year, is glossed over with “over-compensation” and smothered in “opposite-speak”. (Because it is literally, the worship of a lie)
As you have already seen in “the Christmas Magic”, oddly enough, and without sufficient natural reason, Christmas is consistently, the most deadly time of year. Even when people are not working. Travel is at a minimum. Activities which produce injury and death are all on pause. Despite this cessation of activity, Christmas still manages to consistently be, one of the most deadly times of year, every year. Even researchers, who compile these numbers, are at a loss to explain why?
Critical “stress” levels often cause the onset of illness. But illness induced from stress may not show up, until months after the actual “stress” events, which produced it. So the real damage that “Christmas” routines may be having on the health of a population may not even be fully known. “Christmas” is routinely identified by people in surveys, as the “most stressful” time of year.
In 1967, psychiatrists Thomas
Holmes and Richard Rahe examined the medical records of over 5,000 medical
patients as a way to determine whether stressful events might cause illnesses.
Patients were asked to tally a list of 43 life events based on a relative
score. A positive correlation of 0.118 was found between their life events and
their illnesses. Their results were published as the Social Readjustment Rating
Scale (SRRS), known more commonly as the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale.
Subsequent validation has supported the links between stress and
illness.<> The scale was also assessed against different populations
within the United States (with African, Mexican and White American groups).
The scale was also tested cross-culturally, comparing Japanese and
Malaysian groups with American populations.
The sum effect of this stress is known to produce illness. The
chart below is the Holmes and Rahe “Stress” chart. The items highlighted in
yellow indicate the areas that “stress” during Christmas is routinely
generated, except for the categories of death and divorce. In the chart
following is a summary of routine “stress” levels as shown against the Holmes
and Rahe “Stress” chart. As you can see, Christmas routine, scores a 276 on the
Holmes and Rahe Stress scale. Moderate risk of illness is given between the
range of 150 to 299. At 300, the probabilities seriously increase for illness
within the next six months. People are literally "dying" to "celebrate" "Christmas".
