"Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men." Matthew 2:16

Herod had faked his desire to worship Jesus to the wise men (Matthew 2:8.) God knew of Herod's hatred and fear of Jesus, though only a Baby, and countered his deceit toward the Child (Matthew 2:12.)

The issue today, as was then, is not about holidays or holy days; not about commemorating Christmas or not; not about greeting people with "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Holidays." The firestorm centers around keeping Jesus Christ alive or allowing Him killed off by His enemies. The controversy is not about a manger scene, nativity display, a star in the east or wise men bringing gifts. The issue was then and is still now, is Jesus Christ the Saviour of the world?{C}

The Error of Easter, The Lunacy of Lent and the Fable of Good Friday.

The greatest days for church attendance each year are Christmas and Easter. Now, personally, I like these days because it reminds every person on earth that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh and died, was buried and resurrected for our sin. Everyone is reminded of these two truths twice a year. Also like the truths, there are some lies that are perpetrated at the same time.

In the garden of Eden Satan challenged what God said (Genesis 3:1,) then he outright called God a liar (Genesis. 3:4.) Eve added to what God has said (Genesis 3:32,) and there you have it...satan and men contradicting what God has said. Satan claimed to Eve that God is unjust, unkind and untruthful.

Introduction

We have recently begun a new series called the U,V and W's of right division. This title has been carefully chosen because I do not wish to give the incorrect notion that the series will be the "final word" on R/D but that it will extend the already published  "ABC's of R/D" https://rightdivision.com/study/abcs-right-division

It was interesting to see that the American College of Pediatricians has written that to teach a child that transgender sex is normal is actually child abuse.

"The American College of Pediatricians urges educators to reject all policies that condition children for transgender sex. Facts, not ideology, determine reality." Leonardo Blair, Christian Post.Com

"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves..." 2 Timothy 3:1-2

The word "perilous" means "dangerous." These are dangerous times...murders, mass murders, random killings, family murders. This is the result of men loving themselves...they care about no one else; my life is important, yours is not!

We have had multiple killings in bars, churches, parks, schools, shopping centers...no place is safe.

Someone asked me if I could talk to one person from my past, who would it be. Without a doubt it would be my daddy. I ran many years behind in realizing how much he loved me, how brilliant he was, how he sacrificed for me and what good advice he gave me. Usually we do not think much of a father's love; we think more of his discipline or instruction, yet the first time "love" is mentioned in the Bible, it is a father's love.

I was thinking about the church where I was saved in 1953. We had Sunday School (Bible teaching) and a preaching service on Sunday morning. On Sunday night we had Training Union (Christian training) and a preaching service. On Wednesday night we had prayer meeting and preaching. Most everyone, children included, brought their own Bible. We could even have what they called "Responsive Reading" (a person would read a verse of scripture and the congregation would read the next verse in response.) Wouldn't that be something today?

The Psalmist said:

" He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with Him."  Psalms 126:6

This is a long time quoted verse regarding soul winning.  It is a promise, a challenge and instruction.  It matches the last book that Paul wrote.  His last instructions to Timothy were:

"…do the work of an evangelist…"  2 Timothy 4:5

Super Bowl 50 has come and gone. It was a great defensive football game which thrilled the real aficionados of the game and was boring to those who just want see touchdowns. As usual, there were private celebrations after every big play with either the offensive or defensive player drawing great attention to himself as if he won the game. This game also revealed that some who can celebrate their wins cannot handle their losses too well. Grown men drawing millions of dollars, pouting, whining and blaming others. This attitude has marked the biggest change in sports in my lifetime.
