The Meaning of Christmas

Just did a lunchtime check of some blogs and ran across a comment by someone calling themseves "Vandal" responding to a post by someone fed up with the LLMB's PC approach to eliminating "Christmas" (or anything Christian) from the season. Vandal commented that the best response to such was "Merry Christmas, you filthy animal." Others were quick to chastise Vandal for such an "unchristian" attitude. I beg to differ. "Merry Christmas, you filthy animal," really does touch the very heart of what Christmas is all about. I applaud Vandal's clear Calvinism and want to remind us all that anyone who ascribes to the total depravity of man can't be all bad... heh After all, Christmas is God's gracious response to our "filthy animal" depravity that He demonstrated in the incarnation and sacrifice of His Son... So, "Merry Christmas, you filthy animal" is kinda God's loving response to our total depravity. I like that.
It is just as scripture has said, "There is no just man, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one in search of God. All have taken the wrong course, all alike have become worthless; not one of them acts uprightly, no, not one..." (Romans 3: 10-12)
The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 6: 23)
So, Christmas is about "Good will [from God] to filthy animals," if you will. And that's something we can be very, very grateful for: that God looked upon those who hated Him and chose to reach out to His enemies with love. (Romans 5: 8) "Peace on earth"? Accessible only through Christ. (Romans 5:1). And that addresses why so many who find the Christmas season depressing or—in LLMB PC conformity, offensive. They do not yet know the Good WIll God has already expressed toward them, nor have they welcomed the Peace He offers through His Son. Their choice. So, I wish one and all a Merry Christmas you filthy animals! A very merry, merry Christmas, indeed.
