Religious images still first choice for greetings cards
A LEADING art library which licenses images for use on Christmas cards has revealed that traditional religious images are still the preferred choice for the seasonal greetings cards.
The Bridgeman Art Library, the renowned British fine art image library, today announced the 'top five' Christmas card trends for 2007. This year, Bridgeman has licensed over 200 images for Christmas cards and once again, traditional religious images come in first place -- particularly fine art depictions of angels.
The Library said that a newcomer to the top five list is Japanese art: this year, a number of major greetings card companies, including Hallmark and Paperchase, have licensed Japanese snow scenes such as the Kuniyoshi woodblock print of A Snowstorm at Kinryozan Temple....
The Authorized Biblical Literal Account of The Birth of The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth in Israel is Historically True, Accurate & Undisputable !
When the "Archbishop of Canterbury Dismisses (The) Nativity Scene As Nothing But 'Legend'"; he has some historic ring of truth to his words.
I myself personally see The Nativity Scene; with all its Statues, Images & Likenesses of Things in Heaven (angels) & on Earth (men, a woman, a baby): As Pure Idolatry--in the Most Conservative, Strict and Literal Interpretation of What The Authorized Holy Bible Says With Regard To Idolatry !
Note: I remember when I was a spiritually lost Roman "Catholic" child; going to the local Roman "Catholic" Temple of Idolatry on "Christmas" Day. The "Christ"-Mass/Mess was said in a language that I didn't understand (Latin) by a man who I didn't know (although I believed then that he was "sinless" because he was a Vaticanist priest); in a huge place full of statues, candles, gold, pearls, precious stones & a painted image of a woman with the sun & moon under her feet & angels next to her in clouds. I was suppose to pray to her and thank her for speaking to God for me. And that day I went in front of the altar & kissed the foot of a baby statue of what the priest said was her son !
