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.
