Season Reasoning

Did you know that you cannot reason with evil? Maybe that's why it's so hard to understand the vehemency of people who are so anti-Christmas. But maybe that's just their make-up...anti-everything. They would probably disagree about most things. Maybe they think they could change God's mind about evil. Or maybe they try to twist evil into looking like good. Only God is good, none else.

It's really a shame. They're missing the most important decision for themselves that will depend upon where they spend eternity. Because they will spend it somewhere.

I believe that if I'm wrong believing in Jesus Christ to bring me to live with Him in eternity, then the hope that I have seen with my eyes was false and that doesn't make sense. I HAVE seen Him work in me and in others. I HAVE seen miraculous healings, deliverances, and provision. I'm a living testimony as to His power.

Luck and coincidence cannot account for the things I've experienced. It could only have been the hand of God. He is my strength, salvation. He is my past, present and future. The only God. The only Savior in Jesus Christ. God bless and may the Holy Spirit soften your heart to understanding.

Reasoning with Evil
"Most people are convinced that if they could only gather around the bargaining table, everything could be resolved. It seems they quickly forget that evil cannot be reasoned with."

"God cannot be tempted by evil..." James 1:13

Enjoy the following information on the Candy Cane.

The Candy Cane Story
A candymaker in Indiana wanted to make a candy that would remind people of the true meaning of Christmas; so he made the candy cane to incorporate several symbols for the birth, ministry, and death of Jesus Christ. He began with a stick of pure white, hard candy. White to symbolize the Virgin Birth and the sinless nature of Jesus, and hard to symbolize the Solid Rock, the foundation of the Church, and the firmness of the promises of God.
The candymaker then shaped his cane into the form of a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus, who came to the earth as Savior. It could also represent the staff of the "Good Shepherd" with which He reaches down to to reclaim the fallen lambs who, like sheep, have gone astray.
Thinking that the candy was somewhat plain, the candymaker stained it with red stripes. He used three small stripes to show the stripes of the scourging Jesus received. The large red stripe was for the blood shed by Christ on the cross so that we could have the promise of eternal life.
