Secularization of Holidays

Christian Conduct Opposed to Seculatization

The Bible is by far the most influential book ever written. It has impacted our world so thoroughly that it is extremely difficult to imagine a world in which the Bible did not exist.

Hospitals, human rights and charity organizations provide only a smidgen of examples on how Christ has affected our world since his life, death and resurrection. Today, the atheistic agenda and the secularization of society is determined to remove the Bible, not just from schools and government institutions, but from the world itself.

The Atheist Bus Campaign launched in the UK on October 28, 2008. The phrase "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life" is to be advertized all around London beginning in January 2009. This campaign is an altogether anti-religious movement and is outright mean-spirited in its method.

This however does not excuse Christians to behave in the same manner. In Olympia, Washington, a sign was posted by the Freedom From Religion Foundation next the nativity scene on the legislative building. It read "At this season of The Winter Solstice may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds." This bold move by the foundation is not only disrespectful but also offensive to many.

While there was controversy about the placement of the sign, the sign ended up being stolen. The media immediately shifted from focus on the anti-religious group to the poor and illegal performance of the religious community. The sign was replaced with a note attached..."Thou shalt not steal."

In America, the land of the free, where freedom of speech is enforced by law, allowing the nativity scene to be displayed means than it is unreasonable and illegal for anybody to disallow others to speak freely.

It is the very same freedom that allows beleivers to worship and preach. If left alone, the atheistic agenda will continue to shoot themselves in the foot by disrespecting others' rights to practice religion.

the job of Christians is to make disciples. This is accomplished by loving our neighbors (even the atheists) as we love ourselves. We pray for those who do not know Christ, we honor and respect others beliefs while at the same time presenting the truth of the Gospel to all mankind.
