Christ Is + + + +

CHRIST IS!

Christ is!

What more is to be said?

False teachers SAID they were,

But now false teachers are dead.

Christ is!

– eab, Dec 1985

 

#1 The myth supposedly “knows if you’ve been bad” – Jesus knows that for a fact!

The myth has a white beard – Greatest Being in history had a younger, manly beard.

The myth is connected with a green tree – the Savior hung on a bare, crude “tree.”

The myth is pictured as an old man – Jesus was dead (in the human, of course) at about 33.

DEATH  

Some hours ago the message came,

The solemn message of the dead.

(These are always given,

Given and received, with dread.)

Sad the duty to deliver,

Sadder yet to stand and take;

Someone else has gone in sleep;

We are still awake.

– eab, Dec. 1984

 

 

#2 The myth “smokes a pipe” – Christ had no such filthy habits

The myth sneaks into your house – Christ only comes in the door, by-your-invitation.

The myth only “comes” once a year – Jesus wants to live with you all year.

The myth wears red – the enemy of Christ (antichrist) is associated with scarlet (Rev 17.4)

“If man is not a free agent…God is as much the author of our actions, good or bad, as a show-man is the author of the actions of his puppets…”

– John Fletcher, Works, vol 1

 

#3 The myth supposedly brings presents (does not) – Christ offers the greatest Present: His Presence.

The myth (at store) is 1 of 1000’s “playing” a role – Christ is One & yet is in every store, every home.

The myth is allowed to visit schools, libraries, sadly even some churches – Christ is not allowed.

The myth “rides” – Christ walked or rode in a boat until His last time into Jerusalem

Ps 96. 5

“For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.”

 

#4 The myth is cyclical, as false religions are – Christ came, left, & will come again: linear.

The myth is popular in sinful homes/secular business parties/etc – Jesus is only in humble hearts.

The myth “has a twinkle” in his eye – Jesus was the Man acquainted with grief.

The myth is a creation of man – Jesus Christ created man.
