The Battle Resumes

The war on Christmas has continued and this time the city of Chicago is protesting a Christmas festival's planned use of the film The Nativity Story as a part of the festival. There is a movement underway that seeks to remove Christianity from the public square. We've seen it for years and it is not isolated to Christmas. Easter is under attack as well.

The anti-Christian movement seeks to eradicate Christianity from our collective memory, and by doing so eliminate all condemnation of sin and judgment from the lives of those who reject Christ as messiah.

But as Paul Braoudakis, spokesman for the Willow Creek Association, is quoted in the article as saying, "The last time I checked, the first six letters of Christmas still spell out Christ. It's tantamount to celebrating Lincoln's birthday without talking about Abraham Lincoln."

It is not so unreasonable to expect at some point, the very name of the holiday will be changed to something more palatable to our increasingly pagan nation. In fact it is more likely with each passing Christmas holiday.
