The Santa Claus Lie, taught to children...


This particular lie won't be a revelation to the majority of us but I feel lead to start this thread and think that there are several other lies that can be added later.

I'll start off by copying the lyrics to a couple of 'Christmas' songs about Santa Claus.


Santa Claus Is Coming To Town


You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!


Here Comes Santa Claus (partical lyrics)

Hang your stocking and say your prayers
Cause Santa Claus comes tonight!

He doesn't care if you're rich or poor
He loves you just the same
Santa Claus knows we're all god's children
That makes everything alright
So fill your heart with Christmas cheer
Cause Santa Claus comes tonight!

Peace on earth will come to all
If we just follow the light
So let's give thanks to the lord above
That Santa Claus comes tonight!


I was in a situation where a couple of mothers were teaching their young toddlers these songs, with such enthusiasm it made me wonder if they were even aware of what blasphemous things they were teaching their children. They(the songs) teach children that Santa Claus is the reason for 'being good'; that he is all knowing; the reason for saying 'your prayers' is because Santa Claus is coming tonight; that Santa Claus knows we're all Gods children and that is what makes everything all right; following the 'light' will bring peace on earth.

I daresay they (the mothers, who profess to be christian) don't spend near the time(if at all) and energy teaching the children Bible verses or Bible stories as they do being sure they've got the 'Spirit of Christmas' ingraved upon the childrens hearts.

Some of the lies about christmas are very blatant and obvious to anyone who will view it all without an agenda(seems to be almost impossible due to the strenght of the 'Spirit of Christmas'...and Yes, Charlie Brown, it is a demonic spirit, one of the strongest, deceiving millions upon millions of people.) But the way Satan tries to usurp what belongs only to God through seemingly 'innocent songs' is a bit more subtle. The message he is sending is that there is someone beside God who knows, sees, makes judgments, and is the source of peace on earth..."so lets give thanks to the lord above, That Santa Claus Comes Tonight."





"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God."
