“It’s not just a tree. it’s a movement.”
Is this for real? Seriously?!?
I don’t want to be that guy that just spews random hate and criticism – especially during this season of generosity but I’m just going to be real:
I’m going to turn over some trees.
Straight up. If this tree pictured above or below is in your home, I don’t care if I’m a bad guest and you’ll never invite me to your house again but I’m going to turn over trees. For realz.
Okay, I get it. I understand that some Christians are irritated, upset, and threatened by the ongoing cultural tension and opposition to their perception of Christianity and all things glorious Christendom of America. But starting a movement of Christ-mas trees – with some decorated in the American colors of red, white, and blue – is not the remedy. Nope.
Frankly, I’m getting tired of it. It’s the same routine every single Christmas season, right? It goes like this:
- Christians want Christ back into Christmas.
- Atheists hate Christmas and religion and want Christ out of Christmas. They prefer “happy holidays.”
- Christians fight back and claim America has always been a Christian nation.
- And in between the above bullet points, we all shop away.
Every single year.
I don’t really care because
I think there are more important things to pursue as we seek to participate in the work of the Kingdom of God. We can be secure in knowing who we are and who our Christ is so that we don’t have to start “it’s not just a tree, it’s a movement.” This reminds me of last year’s post, “What are we exactly standing up for when are stand for Christmas?”
Your turn. Thoughts?
And how about this one? This is Marsha, the founder of CHRIST-mas TREE demonstrating the perfect storm.
Religion, Patriotism, Money, and Sex.
She posted this on the FB page of her company, Boss Creations. The comments about her picture are well…interesting.
Tammy: This is sinful.
Tammy: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin,
when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
David: I’ll take every single tree you have in stock. Every last one. And that girl’s phone number.
Janice: You’ll need to pay extra for her lips. They are still under a financing contract.
David: Money is no object to obtain a Christian woman like that. She’ll fit nicely into my household and will raise my children to fear the LORD.
Janice: I am already fearing something…
Tammy: The only person who should be seeing that young lady like that is her husband. The Bible tells us to dress modestly. We should be praying for that young lady and the men she is causing to stumble, not posting pictures of her next to the symbol of the Lord.
David: No, I think this is just perfect. And by the way, from the looks of her forearms, she’s not that young.
Gabriel: I wouldn’t have that tree in my living room if you gave me the tree, but I will take the women.
Boss Creations: yes wearing a dress if very sinful and extremely low body fat equals age?? cud it be extremely low body fat? of course not, haha! bodybuilding competitor – haha which I’m sure is very sinful, too.. suure… ha! and of course anyone who looks half way decent must have augments anything to make yourself feel better. I don’t waste time critiquing pictures of people all day – I have a life! haha…. when you have something meaningful or interesting to say, I might chat some more… I won’t hold my breath… poor poor lonely misguided legalistic unhappy people 😦 n why on a page you don’t like? just looking for someone/ place to spew your pent-up nasty venom.. ugh sad! Thanks again! -Merry Christmas!! 🙂
David: I LOVE this page. It has made today so much cheerier. We need more TRUTH on Facebook.
Gabriel: I am so glad that Stephen Colbert talked about Boss Creations’ trees last night. How would I have known to look for this company on Facebook?
Tammy: I will pray for you. The young lady should use her body only to glorify the Lord in the way He intended. Christians should NOT be using sex to sell crosses!
Boss Creations: that is sex? sorry sweetie. that is a dress. nothing sexual. If I happen to wear better than you dont be a hater. that dress on some stick figure, unattractive person would get no comment whatsoever… last words on this silly topic go read a bible and live in a bubble and judge everyone – what a great ministry you have…. do something useful
David: OMG, I feel the same way! TRUTH is spoken by Boss Creations. May Jesus Christ be praised!
Ok then. Merry Christmas, everyone.
