Blasphemous: Santa suit for baby Jesus in UK poster

A poster depicting a Nativity scene in which the infant Jesus is dressed in a shockingly red Father Christmas-style suit and hat is to be used to encourage churchgoing this Christmas.

In an attempt to promote the Christian festival as more than an opportunity to spend money, the slogan beneath the traditional tableau reads: "Go on, ask Him for something this Christmas."

The poster, to be displayed on more than 1,000 sites across the country in December, is part of a £250,000 campaign by the Churches Advertising Network.

The campaign also includes radio advertisements in which humorous words highlighting over-consumption at Christmas have been set to the tunes of four non-religious carols. Listeners are invited to "ask Jesus for something else this Christmas - come to your local Christian church". ...

It is a privilege to remember the Lord's coming into this world as a baby. He did not have to do so, but He did for the entire world "to save His people from their sins." Matt. 1:21
He became sin for us, having a body that ached because of sin in the world, but never sinned.

One problem with celebrating the holiday at this time of year is that Jesus was not born in December, but sometime in September.

As for the blasphemism portrayed (blasphemous because it is false depiction that puts minds at false conclusions via Santa = Christ)

Lets bring Jesus to the world, not the world to Jesus. Big difference

Obviously it is not wrong to rejoice in the Saviour coming to earth to save His people from their sins.
However, to "celebrate" this as a holyday which God has NOT commanded is adding to the Word, when we have instructions to celebrate the Lord's death only, until He come.

"Xmas" takes us back to what Jereboam did, read what God thought of that! (Jereboam, the son of Nebat, which caused Israel to SIN ! ")
"Christmas" stems from Antichrist religion , and i for one am so pleased to have been delivered from this, do not follow a multitude to do evil!

Hey msc... nice to see you. This is one of those things that is SOOOO ridiculous you can hardly believe your eyes. I can only think of one thing to say, "Now, I've seen everything."

Newspaper columnist and author Lewis Grizzard, now deceased nine years and with the Lord, might have said, "I don't believe I'd uh done that."

Truth in that picture? I disagree with what the folks are doing, putting that kind of suit in a Nativity scene. It's rediculous. As for Michaela's statement, I repsond...Christmas comes from "Christes Masse"/ the Mass of Christ; Christ's Mass. Hence, Christ is in the Mass from the Gospels that are read and the celebration of his body and blood as the true sacrifice for our sins.
Christians are free to celebrate it or not. I celebrate it to commemorate Christ's entrance to the world.."Good tidings of great joy." Christ came to "save his people from their sins." If you don't want to celebrate, fine, you don't have to. But don't tell other Christians they are wrong if they do. To refer to Baal worship leads me to say that we must be worshiping the moon god on Monday, Venus on Wednesday, Thor(the god of thunder) on Thursday, and Saturn on Saturday. And maybe we should then remove birthday celebrations, and secular parades or wedding ceremonies because of their pre-Christian origins.

Michaela....I believe that you have been standing on your head too long, you need to move to the Northen Hemisphere. To say that there is Baal worship in Christmas is Baal-oney. You're not going to stop me from celebrating Christmas, but I'm fascinated that someone would be so dense as to try.

This picture has more truth in it than I have seen in along time, Praise God!!

The TRUTH is the “true sprit” of Christmas is Baal Worship, and this picture is clearly a warning to those Christians who keep trying to [force] Jesus Christ into Christ/mass who was [never] there in the first place.

Be honest with yourselves is this picture blasphemous
Or is God in his mercy toward us revealing something else here ?

I'm not sure you've exegeted the article correctly -- certainly on the surface you may guess that they are saying that Jesus is "Father Christmas" -- but I think the real message which most non-Christian people understand is that the true spirit of Christmas is Jesus and His great gift to us: not the gifts that we give in the name of St. Nick.

We are so eager to take offense and so senselessly violent in our attitudes. The battle is the Lord's!

This article does not make me mad,
if angry, hopefully righteously.
But mostly, I am sad that people have
reached the point that Jesus and Santa
Claus are seen as the same entity.
Sad for the people of England and sadder
still that many Americans may foster the
same worldview.
PTL in the midst of ALL things!
