Christmas Under Intense Attack This Holiday Season

The holiday season is here again, and with it has come the predictable attacks on Nativity scenes, Christmas trees — and Charlie Brown? That's right, Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown, the theatrical adaptation of a Peanuts holiday cartoon children and families have enjoyed for years, is under attack from an atheist group that caught wind that an elementary school in Little Rock, Arkansas, was going to take some of its students to see the play at a local church.

According to the Christian Post, teachers at Little Rock's Terry Elementary School sent a letter home duly warning parents that the play at nearby Agape Church might “expose your child to Christianity,” so “if you prefer your child to not attend the program they may stay at school.”

While the musical's storyline, which finds Peanuts mainstay Charlie Brown in search of the true meaning of Christmas, can hardly be termed an overt promotion of ...

Celebrating the birth of Jesus is fine. I believe the problem with this is a matter of emphasis. There is a tendency to overemphasize baby Jesus and crucified Jesus by the Roman Catholics/pagans as Jesus in these conditions is perceived to have no or less power (but the goddess Mary does). I believe the emphasis should be on the risen Jesus and the returning Jesus that is going to be judging every man according to their works (Jesus knows whose naughty or nice not that false God, Santa who shares the same celebratory date). While I have no problem with someone singing O Come Immanuel (any day of the year as you rightly state)the woe becomes placing this in the contexts and trappings of a Holy Day that God did not ordain to be Holy and then subsequently all the Roman Catholic/pagan baggage gets lumped on to it.

There's a popular anti-Church Calendar movement afoot. When Christ-mass falls on a Sunday, every preacher gets the day off so they don't have to blow it on worship but to spend good quality time with his or her family.

Ebenezer's visions are early this year. But it may only be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato.

Departing from whether or not we should celebrate Christmas holiday, obviously we should thank God every day that the Lord Jesus came to earth and there is quite a bit in the Bible about the birth of our Lord so to ignore it would be wrong. The poem writer said,
The songs spoke of wise men, of virgin and child, Of shepherds, of God, and all men reconciled; But nothing was said of the blood and the cross; Of repentance, and faith, and of counting the cost.

There are a lot of hymns in my hymn book that would fall under that condemnation that have nothing to do with the first advent. I see nothing wrong with singing songs about our Savior's coming to earth and His miraculous birth. It should be celebrated everyday.

Excellent songs! Thanks Neil. I wonder if there's any church willing to sing them and put on a ChristMass concert. Invite everyone, and see what happens.

Intense? Attack? Parents being informed that it's optional for their kids to attend a play is an intense attack? Language means absolutely nothing any longer.

Russ you are right. Christmas is a holiday tradition and that's it. It not a Christian Holy day. It's a vain tradition that man has made up. C H Spurgeon warned people against celebrating it. Weak christians put more into this holiday than into studying Gods words. If they did they would see that Christ wasn't born in December on the winter solstice (pagan holiday) and oh yeah Christians are not commanded/instructed to observe his birth.

Let them have Christmas. This is a fight that the church needs to let die. Christmas is a left over remnant of Catholicism's syncretistic tendencies and was shunned by our Puritan ancestors.
