“Christmas Without Christ” Lesson One by Ben “Bear” Reeves

The passage of Christmas is only for a short span of time. Most, believers and non-believers, glimpse this holiday as time for gifts, abundance of food and debt. A time to play with the spirits to excess. Often, this time of the year leads to, dyscontrol. It will enforce emotional abuse, creating a depressive disorder. Thought derailment can and does produce, an empty shadow within their own imagination.

Truth is recognized, accepted and applied, but to the few. Those not accepting the truth, remain unwilling to remove the tattered veil or deception that blinds their eyes or encloses the heart. Unfortunately, the mind of mankind will become a prisoner to error, before it will acquire the courage to approach the truth. The cause of this is not hidden in some obscure form, unperceptable to others.

Those that chose to remain in error, have miserably tame performances that will become pale and overshadowed. It becomes an open display resulting from internal causes. These outward displays are seen by all that are present. It becomes
observational fact, not a poorly created image, formed to present a false, fatal shadow of what was or could have been.

Is your Christmas without Christ?

Are you one of the many that feels that it is easier to accept falsity rather than to work or reason to acquire truth? If you are, Christ is not in your Christmas. What do you have
without Christ in your Christmas? …MAS, (Mental Attitude Sins.)

The lessons that are to follow will explore these sins that devastate man and the details in his life. There are ten of these sins listed from God’s word, which is the Mind of Christ. They are as follows:

1. Envy,
2. Jealousy,
3. Arrogance,
4. Bitterness,
5. Vindictiveness,
6. Implacability,
7. Hatred,
8. Anger,
9. Guilt reaction,
10. Self-pity.

Next week, beginning with lesson two, each of these sins shall be presented in an in-depth study, as to definition, it’s application and the resulting impact that is seen by others, whether Christian proper or improper. Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of CHRIST. To leave the birthday guest out of His celebration is an empty actuality. The lessons are constitutive of your perception as you begin to study, metabolize, and apply the truths therein. The last three lessons will explain what you can have with Christ in your Christmas and your life.
