Engaging the culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Merry Christmas:

by Daniel Pulliam

We wear our buttons and religious pins;

We’re in the fight to keep HIM in!

“Merry Christmas!” we’re sure to say,

We’ll have none of that “Happy Holidays”.

They say this is Santa’s season.

We say Jesus is the reason.

We claim to have the Holy Spirit.

They say they’re in the Christmas spirit.

We stand and chat with them in line

And speak of the joys of Christmas time:

The cooking, the calories, the parties, the toys;

And how it’s all for the girls and boys.

We stand and talk for hours on end,

The same conversation with strangers or friends.

When we’re through we part our ways.

They tell us “Happy Holidays!”

“Merry Christmas!” we say with pride

since we’re on the evangelical side.

We wear our buttons and religious pins;

We’re in the fight to keep HIM in!

“Merry Christmas!” we’re sure to say,

We’ll have none of that “Happy Holidays”.

They say this is Santa’s season.

We say Jesus is the reason.

We’re off to yet another store.

We have a lot, but need a little more.

Just two more days ’till Christmas cheer,

And we will not be out done this year!

“I know how much they spend on me,

Their gift will be valued equally!”

We patiently wait in line – it’s hard!

That stupid machine is rejecting her card.

The moment we make it through the door

The kids ask who the gifts are for.

We wear our buttons and religious pins;

We’re in the fight to keep HIM in!

“Merry Christmas!” we’re sure to say,

We’ll have none of that “Happy Holidays”.

They say this is Santa’s season.

We say Jesus is the reason.

It’s seven o’clock on Christmas morn.

All you hear is paper being torn.

Praises are given, but not to The LORD;

Rather Johnny thanks dad for his new skate board.

We say that Jesus is the reason

We celebrate this Christmas season.

We fought all month to keep HIM in;

Yet HE’s not in our kitchen, living room, or den.

There’s really no difference in the way

We celebrate – just what we say.

We wear our buttons and religious pins;

We’re in the fight to keep HIM in!

“Merry Christmas!” we’re sure to say,

We’ll have none of that “Happy Holidays”.

They say this is Santa’s season.

We say Jesus is the reason.

So why do we blaspheme and blame HIM for

The reason come New Years’ we’re all dirt poor;

And say it’s for HIM, and raise a big fuss,

Yet, in reality, it’s all about us?!

So take your Christmas decor and religious pins

And put them in storage right beside HIM.

And next time when Christmas time rolls around,

Go up in your attic and get your gods down!

Mark 7:6 –  “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, “‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me;”

I John 5:21 “Little children, keep yourselves from idols. “

  2. this was good D. If you wonder why I didn’t comment sooner, it rhymes with “monviction”.

    Keep the faith,
