Putting Christ into Christmas not enough.

Hi folks,

Happy Christmas everyone... but a word.

All this yammering about putting Christ back into Christmas is giving me a migraine. A majority of contemporary Christians still seem unwilling to put Christ into Christianity.

So just as a reminder:

When Jesus said "Blessed are the poor" he didn't mean we should make more of them.

[Matthew 5:3, Lk. 16:19-31, Matthew 5: 38-49, I Tim. 6:6-19 ]

The problem, as Chesterton said, is not that Christianity has been tried and found wanting, but that it has been found difficult and never tried at all.

Dream in heavenly sleep everyone.
Tomorrow, you'll have to get up.
