I recently found this leaflet while cleaning out a drawer, and thought it was appropriate to both the season and talk.bizarre. It had been shoved into my hand at a Christmas Shopping Season Kick-Off Parade in Appleton, Wisconsin when I was in school there. The front of the pamphlet features a drawing of Santa Claus with a Satanesque tail sticking out of his suit. All spelling, punctuation, capitalization, and underlining are copied from the original. Anyway, here it is in all of its glorious silliness: THANK GOD FOR JESUS ...AND TO HELL WITH SANTA (SATAN) CLAUS SANTA IS ONE OF THE CLEVEREST TRICKS YET, PROMOTED BY THE DEVIL, TO ROB JESUS CHRIST OF HIS OWN GLORY! THE 1ST COMMANDMENT, EXODUS 20:3 SAYS: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. YET SAD TO SAY, OVER 90% OF AMERICA, DURING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, HAVE ANOTHER god BEFORE THEM AND HIS NAME IS SANTA (SATAN) CLAUS. THE BIBLE SAYS THAT ONLY GOD CAN SEE YOUR EVERY ACTION AND KNOW YOUR EVERY THOUGHT. BUT COME DECEMBER PEOPLE START WORSHIPPING THEIR FALSE god AND SAY THAT SANTA SEES YOU WHEN YOU'RE SLEEPING, HE KNOWS WHEN YOU'RE AWAKE. SANTA KNOWS IF YOU'VE BEEN BAD OR GOOD, SO BE GOOD FOR SANTA'S SAKE. THAT TYPE OF THINKING IS STRAIGHT OUT OF HELL. YES, YOU READ IT RIGHT, HONORING SANTA IS STRAIGHT FROM HELL. MATTHEW 4:10 SAYS: Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him _only_ shalt thou serve. YET PEOPLE SERVE THE DEVIL OVER JESUS CHRIST BY _LYING_ ABOUT SOME FAT LONG-HAIRED GLUTTON, WHO DOESN'T EVEN EXIST! PROVERBS 6:16-17 SAYS THAT GOD _HATES_ A LYING TONGUE! YET PARENTS THINK NOTHING OF IT TO LIE TO THEIR CHILDREN, AND TO PROMOTE THE _LIE_ OF SANTA CLAUS. GOD HATES YOUR LYING TONGUE! JESUS'S BIRTH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SANTA CLAUS. IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH JESUS. MATTHEW 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son and thou shalt call his name Jesus for he shall save his people from their sins. LETS NOT BE TRICKED BY THE DEVIL. DON'T LIE ABOUT ITS TRUE MEANING AND GIVE GLORY TO A LIE. JESUS CHRIST WAS BORN TO DIE A BRUTAL, BLOODY, DEATH TO WASH YOU FROM YOUR SINS, SO YOU WOULDN'T DIE DIRTY AND GO TO A BURNING DEVIL'S HELL. THAT'S WHAT HIS BIRTH IS ALL ABOUT. AND THE BEST GIFT YOU COULD RECEIVE IS HAVING YOUR SINS WASHED AWAY. ROMANS 6:23 ... but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. LET'S PUT CHRIST INTO OUR HEARTS!! Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I confess unto you I am a sinner Lord, and I'm sorry for my sins, please come into my heart, wash me clean and save my soul from hell. In Jesus name Amen. Fishers of Men Baptist Church 1489 Main St. Green Bay, WI 54302 Well...at least they should get points for originality and imagination! :-) 888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888 88 88 88 Barth Richards AT&T Bell Labs 88 88 Naperville, IL 88 88 The Liechtenstein of talk.bizarre !ihnp4!ihlpl!barth 88 88 88 888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888 --------------------- They call themselves Baptists...it's the sort of thing that makes me ashamed to be a Baptist. They seem to have overlooked the fact that "Santa" means _saint_. And is it a lie, or is it a game for parents to be "Santa Claus?" Not to mention the theology... BoB
