I’ve been reminiscing this Christmas season. Thinking back on many wonderful memories of Christmases long ago. Thinking about the pure, wholesome, biblical parts of the season that are fading away due to the corrupting influences of our modern culture.
But my heart has been lifted by gazing through volumes of art by NC Wyeth and Howard Pyle. Artists who illustrated many beautiful, heroic, and wonderful things about our early American history.
However, I’m troubled that these things are disappearing with our culture’s rejection of the good things of our past. Along with its increasing hatred for the Puritan ethic of our forefathers.
I’ve watched as good things are corrupted by a culture which chooses to celebrate Christmas as a purely secular holiday – devoid of any biblical foundation.
Choosing instead, to create something that appeals to all people. Without regard for the necessity of exclusive faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. According to the scriptures.
