Christmas With Jesus

I really like this video because it has truth. It free's the expectation of tradition and allows all generations to understand who Jesus was and is today. It shows that we can change the world through the unchanging word. We come to understand that appearance is meangingless and that the word through His scripture is truth. We have to understand that generations clash. This video brings them together. It shows a real Christian perspective, "God is love." Even though we know theology and think we know how to have a Christian walk, we also need to understand that we have to reach the lost, that means putting ourselves last. Matthew 25. I will not be held responsible for not bringing the lost to Christ. Christ holds me accountable. Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 1:8.

Hi, I'm making a video that is similar to this for my church's christmas carol service, and I was wondering where you got the background music from? Particularly the first track (or is it all one piece)?

I disagree; Jesus used made up parables in almost every lesson he gave. If what you're saying is true, then wouldn't every fictional story be a bad thing?

The Most Important Commandment. 25 One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question: “Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?”. 26 Jesus replied, “What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?”. 27 The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”[c]. 28 “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!”. 29 The man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”. Parable of the Good Samaritan. 30 Jesus replied with a story: “A Jewish man was traveling on a trip from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road. 31 “By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by. 32 A Temple assistant[d] walked over and looked at him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side. 33 “Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt compassion for him. 34 Going over to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him. 35 The next day he handed the innkeeper two silver coins,[e] telling him, ‘Take care of this man. If his bill runs higher than this, I’ll pay you the next time I’m here.’. 36 “Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by bandits?” Jesus asked. 37 The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.”. Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.”. Jesus Visits Martha and Mary.

Tracey Gordon Sheehy I grew up in a family with 11 children and we all believed in Santa. I didn't grow up in a religious family so Santa was the focus in our family not Jesus. I think it's important that we have traditions in our family. I just decided to start my own traditions. My daughter grew up believing in Santa (I became a Christian when she was 3) and I remember how disappointed she was at age 7 to find out he wasn't alive and that I lied to her. My daughter is 12 years older than my son and I decided to make the change from the focus on Santa to the focus on God and Jesus Christ. God is always watching, he knows whether you are naughty or nice, he loves you unconditionally and he is alive. That is the tradition and the belief I wanted to instill in my son 15 years ago. I don't condemn anyone for celebrating with traditions. To me it's like when churches have programs at Christmas depicting Jesus' birth. Mary and Joseph are no longer alive (but neither is Santa) and they keep having those nice programs. NOTE: My daughter has told me not to tell my granddaughter that there is no Santa, her tradition ;), and I will honor her request. God bless everyone and have a merry Christmas.

Mike Gingerich , you're right: there is no mention of the cross in this video, which admittedly is the absolute heart of the gospel, and ultimately our only hope of redemption. So good point and thanks for pointing that out. It was Jesus' greatest deed that He set out to do when He became God incarnate and came into the world. In my statement, I kinda presumed that the cross was pretty much implied whenever Jesus makes an appearance. I think it's fairly safe to say that everyone in the Western world knows what the Bible has recorded and what Christians believe about Jesus: that He died on the cross and was resurrected on the third day. I was referring to the fact that in this video He says "above all, just believe in me". Once a person knows about what He has done to reconnect us to the Father (died and rose again), all they have to do is believe and put their faith in Him. It's that simple. That's what I meant by "it's all there". But you're right, my statement was erroneous in that in order for the message to be complete, the cross would need to have been mentioned as it is what atones for our sin, and nothing else. So I stand corrected on that. Thanks! :)

Hazzie Rainbow Thank you very much....I was wondering for awhile if I was the only one that celebrated santa as a child....Many blessings to you and Merry Christmas to you too! =)

Karen Willard I like the way you told your children that the gifts are from God....I grew up with having Santa and never thought a thing about I followed that tradition with my parents and others back then didnt give it a thought cause that is what you did...I have to admit I enjoyed the santa game as a child and was disappointed when told he was not real....but I did get over it and never thought of my parents as kids enjoyed it didnt affect their views or mine about Jesus and the reason for the season...we all love our Lord very much. If I had to do it all over again, I might go with your idea of telling them the gifts are from God....however one decides to celebrate or not to celebrate Christmas needs to do it with thought and prayer.

Shawn Van De Visch, I told my son when he was 3 years old that it is God who gives us everything and that the gifts we give him come from God. I just kept thinking that if I lie to him about Santa how would he be able to believe me about other things. We tell our kids not to lie and then we lie to them (tooth fairy, Easter bunny, etc). It always seems like one lie leads to another. How does Santa get in? Did he eat the cookies? Where does he make the toys? Where does he live? On and on are the lies we tell our kids. So many kids are devastated when they find out that Santa isn't alive and bringing them gifts. I remember when school aged kids made fun of other kids who still believed in Santa. A relative once told me I was going to ruin my son’s Christmas for telling him who Santa was. I told her I didn't agree because he would have a wonderful Christmas and know the truth. What better gift to give a child.

Marrhea Woodroff I love the amazing way you 'celebrate' Christmas! Thank you very much for posting. I have always had trouble with the so called normal ways of celebrating Christmas. I believe you have helped start a new 'tradition' for me. I agree, it's not our birthday!

It's so sad. It just grows worse and worse. So sad. The culture shapes and defines defines us--we do not influence the culture save a small, evaporating measure. Just His Power--through His Spirit...His Truth and His Love lived through who are His.
