Some people firmly believe that there is a war on Christianity going on in America today. Many will even present what they consider evidence related to “Christian holidays” and “Symbols” that are not necessarily either essential for Christian living or even doctrine. But they still argue that although these holidays and symbols are not prescribed in the Bible they are recognized as things which have elicited Christian sentiments for ages, thus, any position that prohibits their public display is a a direct war on Christianity. Others believe that there it isn’t enough Christianity in America against which to wage a war and that actually the war is against “churchianity” and/or fundamentalism.
I believe that growing up as a Baptist boy in a former Roman Catholic Country, (as it today is either Mystical Pentecostal or Mystical Spiritualist, especially of the African cult influence) – something the RCC refuses to recognize, I know how uncomfortable it is not to “fit in”. Those who decry too much Christian exposure on the account of their discomfort, may be right! If we write the story of Christianity as it is presented today, with all its symbols and holidays, a honest historian will have to admit and write that these symbols and holidays have probably worked better against the propagation of the message of the Gospel than in favor. If one is not ignorant of the devil and his devices (II Cor 2:11), the trivialization of the message of the Gospel is really one of his favorite works; “Make it into a nursery rhyme” kind of work. My conclusion will shock you but that may not be so bad: Perhaps those who allegedly war against Christianity are in a strange way serving as puny servants of God to fight against the devil and his devices! Reflect on it! Perhaps these guys are God’s servants whereas the whiners and those who decry and proclaim an imaginary war against Christianity, aka, the “fundamentalists”, are working as the devil’s vassals!
