Santa is mean

“You better not pout, you better not cry, you better not shout I’m tellin’ you why, Santa Claus is coming to town!”

What terrible news! What kid is not going to do these things? According to this no kid deserves any presents.*

The good news is:

John 3:16-17 HCSB
For God loved the world in this way: He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

John 6:37b HCSB
the one who comes to Me I will never cast out.

    Not only is Santa mean, but he apparently possesses many of God’s attributes.

    “He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good…”

    It’s such a scam.

    And don’t get me started about parents LYING to their kids.

    Jeff: The whole Santa thing has been a struggle for us with four little ones. While we don’t get into the whole “flying through the sky and sliding down chimneys” nonsense, we are careful not to talk about it in such a way that they (the kids) will blow it for others who believe. I think the whole thing is ridiculous and am often tempted to have my oldest tell her friends that he’s not real, but I don’t want the parents’ backlash! I remember finding out–I was hardly disappointed!

    Since I don’t have kids, I guess I don’t think about things like how it would affect other kids. That’s no excuse to lie but I suppose there is a way to handle things.
