Whom do your decorations honor?
I go for a walk and I feel like I have stepped into a horror movie. I am surrounded on all sides by creatures and signs of Satanism.
At Christmas time, churches and private homes are criticized for putting up Nativity scenes. Where are the voices now? Have we become a nation where everyone has a right of expression but God's people? Are they so busy shouting “hocus pocus” that they cannot say “Holy, Holy, Holy” — one for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit? Are they so hung up on the Halloween spirit that they have lost sight of the Holy Spirit?
Last year at Christmas time, I put up a poster with shepherds, sheep and an angel with a Bible verse that said, “Peace for all men.” It was taken down within four days by a co-worker. She said some people found it offensive.
For almost 30 days, I've been surrounded by signs of Satan. Doors and windows completely covered and people standing around admiring this. Even some of the churches have moved these signs into the sanctuary.
Don't forget, the Bible says you can't serve two Gods!
It is time to make a choice: God's way or Satan's way.
We must live in the world but we must not, as Christians, become a part of its madness. They can tear down God's Commandments, protest our Nativity scenes and take prayer out of the schools, but they cannot take God and prayer out of our minds and hearts.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
