It seems that we have become so open-minded that our brains have fallen out! Other religious leaders would never be asked to omit the name of their god in public, yet Christians are asked not to use the name of Jesus! City councils have been intimidated by the A. C. L. U. so often, about Jesus’ name and things Christian on public grounds, that these good people live in fear of a BOGUS law suit. The Bible states that the greatest name in the entire world is JESUS (Philippians 2:9-11). This great nation was founded on the Bible and the Lordship of Jesus Christ, if you care to check the original documents. So, why so much concern about the name of Jesus? The name of Jesus reminds sinners of their sins and the consequences of refusing Jesus’ gift of forgiveness. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His ONLY begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)  World religions and Christian cults all teach that Jesus’ death on the cross was insufficient for man’s sins, so people must add good works to the formula to go to Heaven.  These groups hate Ephesians 2:8-9 for it lays it out clearly!  “For by GRACE (undeserved favor) you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the GIFT of God; NOT as a result of WORKS, so that no one may boast.” True Christianity teaches that no one can be good enough to EARN forgiveness; everyone must receive it by humbling themselves before a holy, loving, merciful God and receiving THE greatest gift of all, forgiveness for sins by Jesus’ death on the cross.  Let God give you the greatest gift of all this Christmas!  JESUS REALLY IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON.  Pastor Ike
