I have been seeing a lot of Christmas-based programs in the city these days. There are also different Christian denominations that are going gung-ho with the festivities.
Christmas is a sham!
What makes me sad, is the fact that most Christians don't know what Christmas is all about.
We also tend to get carried away with the shenanigans.
Here, I'd like to make a few points to back my argument and encourage debate on why I think Christmas is sham:
Christmas today is commercial. Companies exploit it to make their millions in that short period of time. In doing so, enormous sums of money are spent on worthless gifts and toys of every description.
In addition, there is the overindulgence in nuts, sweets, roast turkey, seafood, ham and all other vain indulgences. Much of it results in headaches, stomach disorders and other ailments.
All this is outright heathendom and an insult to Christianity. The promotion of gluttony is wrong.
And you would not believe it, but companies love doing it to you. Because by the end of festivities, most of your savings end up on medical bills or a new gym membership. One needs those abs, not flabs.
Its time people sit up and take notice on what being a Christian is all about. Festivities can come later.
Why not join the debate?
