Will America and the West Survive? Real Hope for Christmas…

America is in one of her darkest hours as a nation. We have a President who mocks God and hates everything that made our country great. With greater fervor, atheists are once again coming out of the woodwork to attack public displays of nativity scenes. Islam is knocking at our door and Muslims are infiltrating the highest ranks of our government. Europe is teetering on the brink of economic collapse.

Is there hope for America and Western Civilization? Before I answer this question,  take a moment to read and ponder the words of a very special Christmas carol written by Henry Wadsworth Longsfellow during the War Between The States.

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said,
‘For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.’

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
‘God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men.’

Till ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

A good student of history will recognize that it was during the darkest hours that God’s power was revealed.  In the year 732, it appeared that Islam was going to completely overrun Europe and end Western Civilization for good. But God providentially intervened. He used Charles “The Hammer” Martel to swiftly and decisively stop the Muslim advance into Northern Europe at the Battle of Tours. None of us would be here if Charles Martel had failed.

When Jesus came into this world 2,011 years ago, he did not come to fail. He also came at the world’s darkest hour to become our King and give us life eternal.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)

Rome ruled the world with a heavy hand and freedom was nowhere to be found. Over the past 2,011 years, Christianity has slowly advanced and grown, bringing freedom, peace, tolerance, and prosperity to the world. No other religion has ever accomplished this. There are more battles to come—some within and some without. But rest assured that “the wrong shall fail, and the right prevail.” We will overcome socialism, atheism, Islam, and every other enemy that stands in the way of liberty and righteousness. As Winston Churchill states, we must “Never, Never, Never, Never Give Up!”

This Christmas, read God’s promise for yourself and your family in the prophecy of Isaiah 11:7-10…

And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like an ox. And the suckling child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’s den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

    Gee Mohammed, are you upset or what? Calm down and use language we can understand other than alluding to profanity.

  • Bree

    How truly beautiful Brandon! Thank you for the gift today. There is so much Hope in what you have stated here and indeed, hope for the world through Jesus Christ our Lord. I love the Book of Isaiah, my favorite book of the Bible and especially Chapter 9. He is the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace, the Real Hope for Christmas. Merry Christmas All!

      With the fact there is nothing that exists more evil than what we have legalized. It is not in isolated places, either. Our country is literally oozing in this evil, legalizing sex with animals, the abomination homosexuality, baby murder in millions. What on earth else can we think of doing to raise the anger of GOD who promises that HE will come back and cleanse the earth of all evil. If anybody can explain how America can survive this evil I would like to know how it can be.

    • am2sweet

      Evil is like cancer. It starts out small and innocent looking. But, at some point without anything working against it, it will grow and grow until it either takes over the body or medication is successful in killing it. We can only hope and pray that somehow we are able to find the right thing to get rid of what is plaging us. God is one but we also have to help ourselves for Him to help us.

      “Merry Christmas, and God Bless America”!!!

    • LS

      Sounds like the US government.

    • June

      Remember this phrase and pass it on – -”The only way for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing”! I don’t know the name of the author, but this should truly have meaning for US!

    • Ruby Smith

      O.K., Myrtle, the filth is everywhere. What are you doing about it? When a sex scene (borderline porn) is inserted into almost every T.V. show & movie, did you write a letter to the sponsers declaring your dislike and telling them to clean these shows up or lose your business – did you get the addresses so you could give to others & they could do the same? Did you also tell them to clean up their filthy mouths because children are copying this bad behaviour? “JUST TURN THE T.V. OFF – YOU’RE THE PARENT AND YOU CAN CONTROL IT” !!! bALONY~
      your kid will go visit a friend whose mom & dad let’s them see anything – and your good effort means nothing. Stop the river of sewage at it’s source – Once upon a time no American mother would allow the indecent filth that permeates our entertainment industry. If a car factory was producing such destructive products, people would be up-in-arms, SO “Moms of America” get out your darn rolling pins and MARCH!

    • SHAWN T. CARSON

      Here’s how. The righteous believers of God and of His Son Jesus Christ: the Bible assures us that if we truly REPENT
      and cry out to HIM, He will hear us from Heaven and WILL HEAL our land! Thats how! There are many righteous men and women in America who pray daily and nightly for Repentance and turning away from evil: so I am sure God WILL hear and WILL save a remnant of America. However, all those who call good evil and evil good, will feel the fury of His wrath. The righteous however will be spared, so fear not : trust in Him. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
      And at this late hour that is all we can do. And when the time comes vote for a true man of God…Ron Paul; one of the few patriots…as of old. As a man he’s not perfect; but is IS America’s LAST, BEST HOPE for a return to the Constitutional Republic of “WE THE PEOPLE…”

    • Diana

      Ofcourse the United States will survive. We have survived more than 200 years. We are needed and we are tough, independent people. This current down turn will not last. As long
      as we remember where we came from and why we were started we will be able to survive. We are not Europe,we have never wanted to be. No assault on the USA or on Christianity will succeed. The fact that we are aware of the attacks by Islam and atheists, indicates that we do care for and are aware of our roots. Have a peaceful Christmas.

    • SHAWN T. CARSON

      Remember

      He who died on a cross of wood
      Yet MADE the hill on which it stood.

      Keep your eyes on HIM and God will supply all or needs
      thru Christ Jesus. Simple faith: because the Bible tells me so.
      God bless all those who love the Republic.

    • Elwood

      I believe in God because the alternative is totally and completely unacceptable to me.

  • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

    I’ve posted this before, but it seems appropriate to do it again, and again. We need a new CEO!

    America’s CEO

    Imagine you are a board member of a corporation and the officers (senators and congressmen) you appointed signed a pledge never to raise prices and eventually you would fire them.

    Well in reality it is the CEO who usually reports to the board, so let’s imagine that in 2008 as a board member you hired a new CEO to turn the company around. Since the hiring, you have not been given an operating budget to approve. He has not yet presented a strategy with goals and objectives for his executive (Senate) and management (House) team. As a matter of fact, he does not even meet with them. The board-meeting agenda only consists of a request to borrow more money, which has now reached 40 percent of your operating expenses. The company’s debt has increased by about 60 percent; the stock price is at an all-time low; one of your division chiefs okayed an operation which resulted in the violent death of one of your employees.

    Most of the time the CEO travels the country promising your customers and shareholders the products and service will get better if they give him more time and money. He tells them he is doing everything he can but that his executive and management teams don’t know what they are doing, they can’t make a decision and it’s their fault the business is in shambles.

    As a board member, I would fire the CEO based on no confidence in his leadership ability. Wouldn’t you?

    So, as a board member, isn’t it about time to call a meeting, cast our votes, and fire zer0bama. We can do just that, in November 2012. So let’s do it for the good of what’s left of our country.

    • SUSANM

      and how long do we have to wait. its getting bad in america, something is going to come down and it won’t be rain…we have no one on our side, no judges, congress, senate, so what are we going to do, wait till its over? i don’t think AMERICA is going to make it till 2012.

    • Larry Hughes

      Well maybe 2012 but certainly not 2013.

    • David A. VanBockel, M.D.

      Are we merely arguing over the precise hour of our national demise? We should all have an ultimate back-up plan, sometimes called “direct action”.

    • Phil

      I agree we need action. Who has the gonads to follow through?

    • SHAWN T. CARSON

      You are absolutely correct. But….but…what choice have we?As the majority of the contenders are but clones of BHO. We thought GWB was bad. Remember how good BHO looked? He was like a God! And what did we get; someone far worse! We are now coming full circle. Same dilemma. IMHO we have but two choices to save America and perhaps, even the western civilization as we know it. These are of course Ron Paul and
      M. Bachmann. Virtually everybody else is tainted: bought and paid for by the same masters who foisted BHO upon us. These two face steady uphill battles: the media…also tainted: bought and paid for by the same controllers/handlers; absolutely hate them and do their best to insult, discredit and CONVINCE you, if they can, that neither has a chance. The media are dead wrong. many Americans realize that these are our last best hope to reverse and restore the wreckage and the plunder that has gone on during the course of the last 5 presidencies.
      We must get the information out there; we must get down on our knees, repent of the sins that this country is awash in, and pray that God will heal our land. Just maybe we can do it. Like I said…our last, best hope. Just think about the cost of doing nothing? America cannot survive another term of BHO nor any of his masters clones.

    • Texan living overseas (until Texas secedes)

      Thanks for the proposal. I think Michelle Bachman and Ron Paul need to form a “conservative coalition”. We AGREE on domestic issues, so all we need is a “grand bargain” on foreign policy.

      How about Michelle’s pledge be to STOP spending trillions rebuilding Iraq/Afghanistan back into a threat, and Ron Paul would agree to not work against the GOP if they decide to (in the Congress) declare war in support of Israel if Israel is attacked.

      That would solve both parties’ concerns on foreign policy I believe.

    • Don

      This is how is survive as you said partly – 2 Chronicles 7:14, and say to say that verse is applied to mature believers and those coming up on that state of maturity to rescue our sick country. Unbelievers can pray all they want to – but in vain in unbelief God wont hear their cry! So the question is the pivot (majority) 8 to 10 % of those believers to save our country? Wishful thinking won’t get the job done!

    • Larry Hughes

      What you got was the Anti-Christ. He fits every description I’ve ever read.

    • TheThinMan

      Just how is Santorum bought and paid for? I’ll not argue the rest. I realize that you were perhaps referring to the top runners of Romney and Gingrish, Perry and Huntsman perhaps also fill the bill. M. Bachmann simply doesn’t have the gonads for the job and keeps tripping over her little brain. “I” don’t think she’s bought and paid for – but she hasn’t the leadership capacity for the job. She is not a “Margaret Thatcher”. If Romney get’s elected it will be on his looks, certainly not on his ideology which is the same as Harry Reids.

    • Dorothy

      I have wonderd about that I just have my doubt about Mitt R. why do the liberals try & protect Mitt R. lead they try to knock off ever one that gets close. why did he erase or buy the computors when he was Gov. ? I have a lot of questions with him. is he a liberal

    • Grif

      Very ,Very good MSgt I can’t believe Fox news and Conservatives don’t use this same reasoning every day thanx

    • Angie

      Very good analogy Sir. And thank you very much for your service to our great country. If we fire this dismal failure in 2012 we can keep it a great country!

    • http://none john c.o.b.

      The first thing the people of this country should do is find out who’s pulling the strings that is keeping obama in office.A lot of people already know.From what I have heard and read they are wealthy and I mean WEALTHY.Quite awhile ago I read where obama said he wasn’t concerned about being re-elected because he already had more money in contributions then the reps that are running for pres.totally have.Also he mentioned that he thinks he is the 4th best pres.there ever was.Somebody should fire his staff for being incompetent.That should put carter in 3rd.That’s all folks this old man is falling asleep,it’s time for me to get away from this comp.

    • Christel

      Amen to that. Most companies would have fired their CEO’s long before now. Our ‘CEO’ has been ‘MIA’ for 3 years now. Time to fire him before our beloved ‘company’ goes ‘under’. Also, the Christians in American have stood by way too long listening to the ACLU. We have let the ACLU take away our Christianity in all public places. Shame on all of us for that.

    • Paul

      Nice post but you don’t seem to understand our government. When you post “He has not yet presented a strategy with goals and objectives for his executive (Senate) and management (House) team”. The president is the executive. The Senate and House are the board of directors. It is incumbent on the House and Senate to FIRE the President when he exceeds his executive boundaries. WE, the people, are the stockholders. Our job is to replace the board of directors that is not doing their job and replace the President they have failed to replace. LET’S DO IT!!!

  • Joe

    How true, thank you Brandon…I might add Isaiah 40….”The Nations are but a drop in a bucket” While we worry, God is not in the least surprised, nor worried. He laughs at those who oppose Him. He is Faithful and True. He will prevail and save His people. Nothing is too hard for Him.

  • Ranchman

    I also believe here is hope in Christ. But I also believe that, just like Charles Martel, God uses men to do His will. And he will use men again to overcome the evil in the world today. There’s lots of it, mankind needs to be ready.

  • http://windstream Sandra Leathers

    Bree, Yes he is. We all have to pray that he will heal the nation, and let us vote in people that will turn our country around. God bless to all, and Merry christmas.

    • Anthony San Diego

      God helps those who help themselves… believe it!

    • SHAWN T. CARSON

      Sorry, but this..what you are saying…is nowhere to be found in the Bible. Let me just say: Hitler helped himself, as did Napoleon, as did the current incumbent BHO and God never helped any of them, did he. I think what you are really trying to say is that God works thru men: men of goodwill and honesty. God fearing men who love the Lord. men who despise evil and love the Light of the World, Jesus, the Son of God. Yes, God helps those men: those who seek His Truth and His Grace.

    • msbets

      your putting a spin on the comment.

    • I am the Tea Party

      Ben Franklin said, “God helps those who help themselves.” It is a great statement.

    • Paul

      I’m afraid our Congressmen have misunderstood and are “helping themselves” to everything offered to them by Lobbyists.

    • David A. VanBockel, M.D.

      Thank you, Anthony; my thought exactly.
      If a certain national crisis comes, hands must stop wringing and start loading.

  • Patriot Paratrooper

    In ww2, everyone wondered why most of the jews that went to the concentration camps didnt fight back and just let themselves be led to the slaughter. If america keeps going down the same path, I’m afraid alot of americans will know the answer to this question. I believe in the man up above. I also believe he gave me the wits to read the signs and piece it together. If america is to be saved, it will be by free thinkers who are prepared. You don’t want to be like the guy in the joke when his house was being flooded and he prayed to god to save him. First, a four wheel drive came by and said get in. No,no, the lord will save me. As the waters rose, a boat came by and said get in. No, no the lord will save me. As he is standing on the peak of his roof, a helicopter flys over and lowers a ladder,
    get on. No.no. the lord will save me. his house is washed away and he drowns. When he gets to heaven, he asked god, after he prayed and put his faith in him, why he let him die. God answered him, my son, what more could I have done, I sent a four wheel drive, a boat, and a helicopter. Don’t be that man. Put your faith in god and keep your powder dry. God gave you the brains and the brauns to get the job done. Now it’s time to get prepared. Times are getting ready to be real tough. You don’t want to be the 47% who need Uncle Sam to wipe thier backside. Be able to look at your family and know you did the best you could.

      Good Point. How can Christianity save America when it is losing to aethists, gays,socialists, communists, the ACLU, and the liberal media? If we can’t stand up to these groups internally, how can we stand up to Islam when Europe falls and it acquires England and France’s nuclear weapons. Demographic trends that that will happen within a generation of so.

      Pray for our grandchildren. Better yet, lets do something about it in the next election.

    • Tracy Stokes

      This is what I keep telling my husband! God gave us brains and some of us discernment! FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT – and fight I will!

  • BetsyRoss

    Charles Martel, that wonderful CATHOLIC,ruler who saved Europe from the Muslims was chosen by Divine intervention.
    That was when all Christians belonged to the True Church founded by God Himself, Jesus Christ which He bought with His blood. But too bad, man in his arrogance thought he could do better job than God Himself.
    You can’t deny history my friends. So Convert and be saved, as there is no Salvation outside the One ,Holy, Apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ. And that also means those New Protestants in the Novus Ordo Catholics. Time is fleeting,
    God is waiting.
    Peace, B

      Men and women have one main purpose here on the Earth. Have ny of you read the book of Job. In the last part, God came to Job in a whirlwind, 38, read it. TYhe one purpose all man kind has for being here, Accepting Jesus as their savior, willingly asking Jesus into their hearts to rule their life. All else you see here is Temoral, it is what we can not see that is everlasting, 2 Corn, verse 18

      Yes there i evil here in America, in fact the entire world. With Job, The Lord allowed the evil to prove a point. He told Satan at first that he could take all Job had, and in one day Satan di. But Job stayed faithful. Then the Lord allowd Satan to lay a hand on Job but he could not taake hi life. Satandi. Job stayed faithful. Even Jobs wife left. Three friends came over and told Job to commit suicde. He still stayed faithful.

      How do we know that the Lord isn’t allowing this to happen to America as part of his over-all plan for humanity? America isn’t mentioned in the end times. It is like we do not exist. The main purpose we all have, me also, is to accet Jesus as our Savior. Accept his grace, confess your sins to him. Nothing else matters. Not your wealth, not your home, not your politics, not your job. Or any other personal pocession you have.

    • TheThinMan

      My, what we can read in what is perhaps the OLDEST of the books written in the Old Testament. And Jesus is not mentioned. It is a great story, perhaps one of the best in the whole Bible of a pious yet humble man.

    • TheThinMan

      You really should study Christian Religious history – by the time of Charles Martel – grand father of Charlemagne, who saved “christendom” from the infidel Moslems, the “church” was steeped in paganism, corruption, and was definitely NOT the church that Jesus began with his 12 disciples. The “church” strayed very far from that one that Jesus started with his 12 chosen disciples. It had become decidedly Paulist – a man that has about the same credentials as Joseph Smith who founded the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The church by the time of Charles the Hammer was very much a secular political entity that held power of the ignorant with their threat of damnation to hell and in keeping much of the populace ignorant. Charles Martel himself set up Christian Diocese and appointed clerics.

    • 724willy

      Betsy,Betsy, betsy, History tells a tale you should consider. The prominance of the Roman church started when emperor Consantine entered the picture in 324, and brought in a thousand years of darkness. Unbelievable evil transpired thruout the { Dark Ages ] in the name of the Roman church.
      Jesus is and allways was the Head of His church. He is the mediator between God the Father, and man the sinner. “All have sinned” Peter was never a pope, there was no head apostle, all followed Christ, all made mistakes. No church can save your soul, only Jesus can forgive sin, Jesus said ” I am the door, no man comes to the Father but by me ”
      The dark ages did not begin to end until the reformation began,so please seek the truth, and “the truth shall make you free”. If you knew what the Roman church was doing thruout the dark ages when they forbade the reading of God’s word by the common folk, you would not be bragging about them.

    • Robert Caskey

      Sorry, there is only one church mentioned in the Bible, The Church of Christ, no other! The catholics were just one of many false churches that have rose up through mans false delusions!

    • SACCI

      I would like to get my hands on some books of the Ottoman Empire and who really wiped it out. I read I am sure mongolians Ghangus Kahn (sorry spelling) all but wiped out, China first, hence the wall, then he went after all of Europe, then the muslims and put them onto the road of zero. And squashed the Ottoman Empire into a thin small can. i believe the Nordics went after them too. It happened about the time the Nordie Eric the Red was building churches thru out Europe, and michigan America, too. and a tiny one big as a 12 x 14 shed is a tiny church to this day in Greenland or Newfoundland which was Vineland. because of the extreme heat, the Canada areas could raise grapes which love hot dry weather.

    • NenaChu

      AMEN, Betsy Ross. Being a Catholic is the best part of my life! And I can be one in any corner of this entire world! PRAISE BE TO GOD!

    • Paul

      Rejoice not in being a Catholic. No Church can save you; only a personal relationship with Jesus Christ who said “I am the way, the truth, and the light, no man can come to the Father except through me.” Not through my mother, Mary.

    You All Need To Read This For Your Own Good!( I,m not good at typing so this will take me about 2 hrs.) (Not the Reason For The Season) Many people realize that Jesus Christ was not born anywhere near Dec. 25,and that Christmas is rooted in ancient paganism,but will still proclaim that Jesus is”The Reason for the Season.” Is This True ???”WHO is REALLY Being Celebrated On Dec. 25 ???””Why Evergreen Tree ???” “And MOST Importantly,Is JESUS CHRIST REALLY PLEASED ???” (Luke 2:1-8)tells us that Jesus was born doing the time of the Roman Census when the Shepards were not out at night in the fields anywhere close to Dec.25! In ancient Palentine ,because of her winter rainstorms,the shepherds always brought their flocks in from the countryside by no later than mid Oct..As(Ezra 10:9-13) makes,clear,by Dec.ancient Palestine was bitter cold and rainy!So why is Jesus birth celebrated on Dec.25 ???The fact is that winter solstice celebrations preceded Jesus birth by more than 2000 yrs.,all the way back to ancient Babylon and the Babylonish”Mystery Religion”devoted to Worshiping BAAL.To honor Nimrod,reborn as the infant Tammuz,Semiramis{Nimrod’s widow) claimed that a beautiful evergreen tree sprang up over night from a dead tree stump!The ancient Babylonians then began to utilize the evergreen tree during the winter solstice to celelbrate Nimrods reborn as the Sun-God! This tradition lived through the centuries,manifesting in ancient Eygptain winter solstice festivals,Roman Saturnalia celebrations,and Persian Mithras worship! And ancient Israel adopted this Pagan Custom thousands of years ago(Isaiah 57:5)! Notice,(Kings 17:10,”They set up for themselves sacred pillars and wooden images on every high hill and and under every green tree.”And describing how wicked King Ahaz adopted this Babylonish Worship,(2 Chronicles 28:2-4) recounts,he burned his children in the fire,according to the abomination of the nations…and he sacrificed and burned incense on the high places,on the hills and under every green tree.Just years before ancient Judah fell into captivity,the prophet Jeremiah famously rebuked them for their Baal Worship.Notice (Jeremiah 3:6)”The Lord said also to me in the days of Josiah the King,Have You Seen the Backsliding Israel has Done?”She has gone up on every high mountian and under everygreen tree,and then played the harlot.”Jeremiah’s,warning to ancient Judah Applies TODAY!”Only acknowledge your iniquity,that You have trangressed against the LORD Your GOD,and have scattered your charms to alien deities under every greentree and You Have Not Obeyed My Voice,Says The LORD”(V.13).Ancient Israel and Judah loved their pagan, pre-Christmas winter solstice celebrations!They refused to repent of Baal Worship.So their nations collapsed and they went into captivity.Today”Modern Israel” is repeating the Pagan rebelliousness of ancient Isreal,and without real,real repentance soon,Modern Israel will suffer the same correction(Jeremiah 30:70.The vast Majority of those who celebrate Christmas are friendly,sincere,but Deceived people.But,it is no secret that Christmas is of Pagan origin and was not celebrated by the early post-Apostolic Church.The Catholic Encycolopedia admits these very facts!Christmas was Not among the earliest festivals of the church…the first the first evidence of the feast is from Egypt.(“Does It Really Matter???)YES IT DOES!Jesus is not”The Reason For the Season”Baal Is.TRUE Christians are FORBIDDEN from adopting pagan customs to honor God(Deuteronomy 12:29-32,Jeremiah 10:2.2Thesalonians 2:15)and are commanded to “Come Out Of This Babylonish System”(Revelation18:4)!God the Father and Jesus Christ are the same mind(John 10:30),and in their eyes these Pagan celebrations are “ABOMINATIONS”(Jeremiah 10:3-4;Ezekiel 8:13-14)!Part Two Next If ANY Of You Want to know what the Bible REALLY tells us go to (lcg.org) The Living Church of God

      Is Religious Syncretim a Good Thing??? Most people don’t relize it ,but their Religion is a blend of Paganism and Christianity. Is That a Good Thing??? Does it make any difference to GOD that at least at one’s beliefs and practices came from a Pagan Religion ??? Syncretism is”the combination of different forms of belief or practice”according to Merrian Webster dictionary.In an article on syncretism in 1911 edition of the Encyclopoedia Britannica,it says:” Its(syncretism)most frequent use,however,is in connexion with the religious deveopment of antiquity,when it denotes the tendency,especially prominent from the 2nd to the 4th centuries of the Christian Era,to smiplify and unify the various Pagan religious…Syncretism even went so far to blend the deities of Paganism and Christianity …the triump of Christianity itself represented a result of syncretism,the church being a blending of the beliefs and practices of both new and old religions.”DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED”in the 2nd to the 4th centuries of the Christian era as mentioned in the above encyclopedia article?Christianity was rapidly changing from what it had been during the first century under the 12 Apostles.There were sharp disagreements between those who followed the doctrines and practice of the Apostles and sought to maintain those first century beliefs and practices,and those who were going in an entirely new direction than had been previously taught.A whole host of Pagan practices and symbols were absorbed in Christianity.In an effort to convert those worrshipping Pagan religions,the old Pagan ideas were simply given new names and assigned new meanings.One of the better-known examples of religious syncretism is Christmas.Christmas was invented as a substitute for the older, Pagan Yule celebrations.Instead of worshipping a Sun God on the 25th of Dec.,pagan was told he was worshipping the Son Of GOD.The symbols and rituals and practices all remained,only under a new labels.Bible evidence shows that the birth of christ was in the fall of the year,likely late September or early Oct, at the latest and not on Dec 25th.The Bible no way institues the worship of the birth of Jesus,much less authorizes the absorption of Pagan religous practices.There are many exsamples of syncretism in the modern Christian religion.Another example is Easter,which is loaded with symbols,practices and rituals incorporated from ancient Greek and Roman Pagan celebration surrounding spring fertility.The Pagan practices of worship of Istar,the fertility Goddess,were absorbed into Christianity.The new meanings given was to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.But the Bible Does Not Institute the Worship of the Resurrection.Some think the idea of syncretism is good and is a means of showing that Christianity is not “exclusive”of other religions and their”paths to God.”The idea of being”multi-cultural”has invaded public thought in the last few decades.while God created all peoples ,His Word is Quite Clear that there is Only One Path,”excluding all others;”Nor is there Salvation in Any other Name Under Heaven Given among Men By Which We Must Be saved”(Acts 4:12).God Means it when He says”You Shall Have No Other GODS Before Me”(Exodus 20:3).God warned Israel about worshipping foreign Gods;Thus says the Lord:Do Not Learn The Way of the Gentiles”(Jeremiah 10:2) God Forbids Religious syncretism!

    • I am the Tea Party

      Isn’t it awesome how our great God can even turn something this awful around to receive honor and glory for Himself. Think about this: There used to be only 10 months. Then two more were added July after Julius Ceasar and August after Augustas Ceasar. Take away two months and that would place Christ being born in October.

    • TheThinMan

      Dear God, we worry about the date of Jesus birth rather than the message he brought. it doesn’t matter, and no one knows – it is not recorded anywhere what day he was born. He does do better than Obama, at least we know where Jesus was born. And Jesus was born during the reign of Augustus. Now, tell me when the calendar was changed from 10 to 12 months – or were the names of two months changed. http://www.pantheon.org/miscellaneous/origin_months.html; http://www.calendar-origins.com/egyptian-calendar.html

      try a little research before you say stuff.

    • SHAWN T. CARSON

      Jesus was not born in the Fall; rather in the Spring. The text states that the shepherds were in the fields at night…watching over their flocks. This was customary only at lambing season…which of course, occurs in the Spring of the year. Certainly not worth arguing about; just that this makes perfect sense. Agreed…what you said about the 25th of December. But does it really matter? I have recently read that they have fixed Christ’s birth at 7 BC. Again the only things we have to go by are the Roman records as to when Augustus made his taxation proclamation (10 to 4 BC when Quirinius was Governor of Syria) and also the date of Herod’s death. Remember, the Holy Family returned only after Herod died and history tells us that was in Jericho in 4 BC. Thus we have a window of opportunity here from 10 to 4BC for His birth. Some even offer the exact date as April 6, 7 BC. However and in the final analysis is that we may never know for sure in this life: what is important is that we honor Him with a birthday and thats really what counts. Is it not? Have a wonderful Christmas and may the Light shine brightly
      in every day of the year and not just at Christmas.

    • Ruby Smith

      My,my, I’ed say BAAL is doing a good job by working thru YOU. Yes, Jesus IS the “Reason for the Season”. All good Christians want to give Him a birthday party but we just weren’t sure of the exact date, and we love him so much. Well, there was this big “shindig” thrown at a certain time of the year where people did some pretty stupid things that they regreted later and good folks just couldn”t get them to wake up to see what was happening. So the “good folks” said “Tell you what, if you want to celebrate at this time of the year, let’s make it a super, special, decent, loving & respectful event. Let us give a birthday party for Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Let us give gifts to each other with loving hearts as if we were giving them to Him. If we have food & wine, let us not be drunkards, but let us join in singing praises and spreading happiness to all we see because we are Christians and that is what we love to do.
      SO, Happy Birthday, Jesus on DEC.25th Love

    • TheThinMan

      You are delusional – Christmas is no longer a celebration of the birth of Jesus and it hasn’t been for years. a celebration where we give each other gifts – the wise men brought him gifts of gold, because he was to be a king, of frankincense because it was believed to enhance the spirit, and myrrh which was used mostly for burial purposes. Giving toys for tots – is a silly way to celebrate the coming of the Savior of the world. buying material things which is only appreciated by the sellers is sort of smack in the face to the Messiah. If you were truly going to celebrate His birth, you might give him what He has asked, if you love me, keep my commandments. If you wanted to give a gift that “I” think He would appreciate, instead of some material thing, how about give your wife or your child a whole day of your attention rather than some material thing that in all likely hood will be forgotten or not appreciated in two weeks. Is it the “spirit” of Christmas, the joy of giving a true gift, or the “spirit” of the holiday season that you are after?

    • tod

      Your Totally Blind !!! Show where in the Bible it says anything about celebrating Christs birth or resurection.We are to go by every word of God not Pagan celebrations!!! Show me proof of the Bible,or God telling us to celebrate Your Pagan celebrations.You Can’t because it doesn’t say it anywhere,and yet I showed you the Proof of what I’ve written all the way through it. Back up your lieing mouth PAGAN!

    • Johnnygard

      tod, We can’t do ANYTHING that isn’t in the bible? Do you celebrate any birthdays? But we can’t pick a date and celebrate Christ’s birthday. He may be offended by the commercialization, but not by the good people who remember what we are celebrating. By the way, if it has to be in the bible, where in the bible does the “Our Father” have the words, “For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory”?

    • tod

      Your foolish defence is worthless,the only thing the Bible tells us to do is to Celebrate God’s Annual Holy Days and they are Passover ,Unleavened Bread,Pentecost,Feast of Trumpets,Day of Atonement,Feast of Tabernacles ,and Last Great Day,Plus the Sabbath which no man can CHANGE !!! which is Friday sundown and Saturday sundown !!!

    • Johnnygard

      tod, “no man can change”? The calendar has changed enough during the years that even the Sabbath isn’t where it used to be. Some religions use Sunday and some use Saturday. We could both be technically wrong, but as long as we believe in Christ and keep a day especially holy for Him, I can’t imagine Him getting too torqued (like you) if we have the wrong day. Christ doesn’t tell us we HAVE to honor Easter and/or His birthday, but is there a good reason not to? Again, do you celebrate any family occasions?

    • SACCI

      I can’t type well either so what I am a published poet. What would you have use do to Celebrate Jesus Birth.

The muslims don’t don’t even know or care. Be glad we care.

    Right now, WE are those same Jews: they just passed the Detention Act… your CONGRESS did that…against you… why is nobody rising up? The orders are out to get the DT FEMA camps ready in every state to imprison 50 million Americans; why is nobody rising up? I say again…WE ARE THOSE JEWS and its the same thing all over again. We need patriots: the kind of men who laid everything on the line back in 1776. Where are our patriots, our minute men. our Paul Revere’s? The Nathan Hale’s who said “Give me Liberty, or give me death!” Is it any wonder why these people are successful in their evil enterprise? Like Rip Van Winkle… Americans are fast asleep!

    • TheThinMan

      I think you are seriously delusional if you think this or any other government will be able to lock up another 50 million Americans. We can hardly support the “criminals” we have locked up. The next county over just built a whole new facility for it’s prisoners – guess what – not a single prisoner will ever see the inside of it – why – they do not have the money to pay for guards, for food, or even to pay the light bill.

      And while you may think the government will try to lock up 50 million – they must be prepared for a civil war and KNOW that the US military will back them – I doubt it.

  • http://www.missiontoisrael.org Ted R. Weiland

    We are at the very beginning of what perhaps is the most significant paradigm shift in America’s history (besides perhaps the 17th-century arrival of the Pilgrims and Puritans here in America). America is beginning to recognize her national idol that like Gideon of old must be repented of before we can regain Christian dominion of our nation. Our darkest hour will prove to be our brightest moment. I offer as proof a radio interview Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, conducted yesterday (December 17, 2011) with me regarding this very issue. It will aired on Saturday, December 31 at noon, EST, although some stations will delay the broadcast. Perhaps the easiest way to listen is online. You can find Gun Owners of America’s station list at http://gunowners.org/radio.htm. I hope you will tune in.

    We are a nation under God and that is our strength and we will survive because we have the love of God and our faith in Him.

    • TheThinMan

      You should walk out of your house sometime and look around you. Saying that “in God we trust” doesn’t make it so, and we are not a “nation under God” any more than any other nation on the earth is. Less than 30% of citizens are “Christians” or even Jew’s that practice their religion. At best, most are simply irreligious, but perhaps there are 50% that are anti-Christian or of some other religion. “Not every one that said to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

    How can we defeat Islamic Jihad when we continue to allow hundreds of thousands of Muslims to immigrate into our country every year? In order to defeat Islamic Jihad, we must stop all Muslim immigration into Western nations. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but a large percentage of Muslims want to live under barbaric Sharia law, and many Muslims support Jihad against the West through charitable donations.

      Excuse me but don’t Muslims base their belief on the Koran? Is not the Koran the rule book they go by? Then stop peeing in our faces and telling us it’s raining when you say there are good and bad Muslims ! Their rule book “the koran” tells the followers of that book “the muslims” to kill all of us infidels period. What part of this equation can’t some people understand?

    • Ruby Smith

      Shane, did you hear what a little Spanish town did to stop a mosque from being built – they killed a pig and buried it on the site.
      The mosque was not built, there was no riot, and I believe the Muslims deceided to re-locate. If we truly want our nation back and a great exodus of the evil that is seeping in, like a Cancer, a PIG may be the cure.

  • Winston

    The author did not answer his own question: Will America Survive? There is no mention of America in the end times prophecies. As a matter of fact either America will be so dimenished in power and ability that we will be a non-existent nation, or it will join with the armies of the world when they “ALL” will come against Israel on the plains of Megido in the battle of Armegeddon…and will be destroyed. At the rate the current trend for our three branches of government, we as a nation will lose our sovereignty and will become just one of ten regions in the world under a one-world government which will be anti-God but more of a neo-secular and ecumenical (all religions into one).

    • TheThinMan

      No, we will elect Ron Paul, and he will pull American troops out and not become involved in the conflict at all. We should remember however – that he that is not for me is against me.

  • Gene

    Morality isn’t much different than from King
    David’s example 4000 years ago.
    Though David has all the wealth,power,wives and children inherent for the king of Israel he does not have what he craves for most: the true love of a woman who loves him as a man instead of as king. He is attracted to Bathsheba, the wife of one of his soldiers who is more devoted to the army than to his wife. David & Bathsheba succomb to their feelings. Their affair, her resulting pregnancy, and David’s resolve to have her husband killed so Bathsheba will be free to marry, bring wrath of God upon the kingdom. David must rediscover his faith in God in order to save Bathsheba from death by stoning, his kingdom from drought & famine, & himself from his many sins.
    King David declaring to Jonathon; “your love to me was wonderful, passing the love of a woman.” (11 Samuel 1:23-26)

    • TheThinMan

      I’m trying still to figure out what you are saying here. But I’ll tell you this – if you are implying that David and Jonathan were homosexually involved you are dead wrong. If you were ever in the military you might understand the concept of brotherhood and the bond that binds men together. there is nothing like the bond of a man and woman, but most of it resolves around intercourse which lasts minutes and is pleasurable beyond measure – but so very few men and women truly love each other more than that or the security that they bring to each other. David had NO friends at court, the king hated him because he knew that he was finished and that his family would not inherit the kingdom. Jonathan was David’s friend where he had no other friends and he stood by him when no other would.

  • Bullbat

    Very nice, but this nation will only be restored thru 2 chron 7:14 and the Christian Church has failed. As in Daniels day, we may lose our sovereinty, but the Lord has a plan for Mature Christians as he did for Daniel and his friends. Many others may perish because as the scripture says my people are destroyed for a lack of Knowledge or ( wisdom ). The scripture also says that I give a nation the leadership they deserve and here we are with a closet muslim for president and about to elect a mormon who serves the same master. I fear the worst yet Jesus Christ controls history and his will be done.

  • http://WFA7DID2011.com albert w loescher

    Yes, yes, and yes, Tod. You are exactly correct. The ‘Xmas Bacchanal’ is riddled with pagan heathenism. True Christians know this stuff and why we don’t hang mistletoe, wreathes, stockings, erect trees, wait for Satan Clause, or suck eggnog toddies.
    Every generation, from 34 AD, believed Christ would come in their lifetimes. There have been multiple ‘tribulations’ and many anti-Christs. My generation (1940) is no different. But what is different is that this ‘trib’ will be pandemic. The oppressed and persecuted will find no refuge of a safe harbor anymore (USA). This former ‘nation under God’, now a ‘nation under Gov’ and ‘evil in the sight of the Lord’, will celebrate this winter solstice with the last nail rammed into our coffin lid: the nullification of the first amendment via the Internet ‘kill switch’ on Wednesday, 21 Dec 2011.
    Germany hosted its Krystalnacht and the night of the long knives came shortly thereafter. ‘It Can’t Happen Here’ (Sinclair Lewis). If you noticed, it has already happened. However, this tribulation will be our last.
    BTW, the third or Fourth of July will be the usurper’s 1,260th day of its reign. That significant number is repeated in the books of Daniel and Revelations.
    Enjoy your last Christmass on earth.

  • Patriot7

    All Christians should be praying for our country. The power of prayer is our only hope for survival. We have an evil administration but as a Christian nation founded under God, not even the gates of Hell can prevail against us if we are united in one spirit. When the Israelis were marching around Jericho, the united prayers of those people succeeded in gaining God’s ear and the walls of that great city came tumbling down. We need to do the same today.
    If we get together in one accord, our united prayers can be heard by our father in heaven who will bring down the walls of the evil ones in power.

  • Alan from Branson

    Read America and Britain in Prophesy. The ten Northern Tribes traveled over the Caucus Mtns and spread out over Europe and then came to America. Between 1850-1920 over 50 million people came to America. This was the true regathering of the Tribes of Israel, and has nothing to do with the “bandit” state currently called Israel. The United States of America and Britain contain the remnant of the 13 Tribes (11 + Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim & Manasseh) results in 13 States at our birth as a Nation. That land in the Mideast should be called Palestine as it was over the last 3,000 plus years.

    Please don’t be offended but some of you rattled on and on, off subject. It was so confusing my brain hurts. Wasn’t this about ”Will America and the West survive? Real hope for Christmas?” Gads Zooks, I realize I am 69 years old but what the heck are some of you talking about? A new paragraph here and there, would be nice too.
    Some of you folks were very clear and I would guess, on point. Doesn’t the first paragraph set the tone and illustrate what the subject is? If one considers that we are being led by a (ungodly man ) Obama; attacks against nativity displays; and the economy, to name a few, these are a bit of what suggests we are in deep trouble.
    I know God is in control of his creation. The issue is, does one believe in Jesus or not? This is not normal times. If you don’t know the answer to this “time”, find out and give yourselves to the Lord. All this history talk etc is simply man’s way of explaining belief, not just doing it. A difficult thing for most mortals. Have a Merry Christmas and trust God to guide every step.

    Well, I know at various times people have thought the end of the world was nigh, etc., and I always thought, “How stupid of them; can’t they imagine how bad things will have to get in the world for it to presage Armageddon?”

    Now, as a Texas living in London, I can see and feel it getting much closer, and the pieces are certainly falling into place. I find it very scary, because I wonder how much tribulation we’ll have to go through before Christ’s return. I can state categorically that if the end doesn’t come within the next few years, the entire world will be living under Sharia Law, and any remaining Christians, and people of other faiths, will be beheaded. You need to be reading the articles posted by “bare naked islam”. At first I thought this was an extreme site, and although some of the commentators are pretty extreme, the site itself is merely reporting what Islam is doing throughout the world — the horrors that your mainstream media will NEVER mention at all. Read Ephesians 6 — and get your armor together.

    I don’t think America’s future depends so much upon whether Obama is re-elected, but on whether we, as a nation, return to the God, Who brought this place into being.

    Gal. 6:7 – “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”
    If Obama and the majority of Americans wish to ignore God, it is promised in His Word that what goes around, comes around.
    The only hope for America is to repent of past sins and return to the only God, Who can save us.
