Christmas 2005 will present an opportunity for Christian families to give a positive stand for the Lord’s Day and to defend the truth of God against traditions of men. Because Christmas falls on Sunday, in the minds of many it will be the holiest day since their last correspondence. One can almost feel the magic. An early morning church service. Gifs and brunch. A yuletide extravaganza worthy of Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby. There is one problem. December 25, 2005 will be the Lord’s Day, not Christmas Day.

This is an understandable and perhaps necessary response.
