Yesterday I posted a brief article by RC Sproul on the true meaning of Xmas. Yesterday Carlos Whitaker posts an interesting article frrom FBC Dallas on their new Naughty and Nice website, and it directed me to one of his articles that I missed the other day and I feel like it is worth posting a few of his points so that you will want to click over to his site and read the whole thing. While you’re there check out his other posts, especially the one on the naughty and nice list posted by a church.
From Ragamuffin Soul:
9 reasons why it’s okay to say “Merry Xmas”
1. I love baby Jesus too but he didn’t name Christmas…Christmas. We did.
4. I’m thinking we should celebrate Christmas when it actually happened. More or less around September.
6. I love Jesus. If you are concerned with people seeing a Christian take “Christ” out of the word “Christmas” let’s just say it Merry Jesusmas so that everybody will get it.
