“Pastor Dave Grisham filmed himself Saturday standing in an Amarillo, Texas mall and heckling children as they waited in line to meet Santa.
He walked up to the line of families waiting to meet Santa and announced: Kids, I want to tell you today that there is no such thing as Santa Claus. Santa Claus does not exist.
He continued: The Christmas season is about Jesus. Jesus was born 2,016 years ago. He was born in a manger in a small town called Bethlehem.
‘Don’t lie to your children and tell them there’s such thing as Santa, when you know in reality that there are no flying reindeer, there is no workshop of the North Pole, there is no elves making toys, that you buy all gifts and put them under tree. That’s all the truth!'”
The American Mirror
The Apostle Paul told the congregation at Corinth that they were ambassadors for Christ, an ambassador for the loving Jesus should exercise tact and diplomacy in preaching the Gospel message.
The loud and obnoxious Pastor Grinch succeeded only in turning people away from the Gospel with his self-serving publicity stunt.
How would Grisham like it if an atheist walked into his church while his congregation waited in line to receive communion, and shouted: Jesus died some 2,000 years ago! He didn’t rise from the dead! Stop believing in myths and fables!
Let’s get real, the Christmas season isn’t about Jesus or Santa, it’s about mindless consumerism, greed, and attending Bacchanalian office parties.
I pray that a prophet filled with the holiday spirit will take a giant King James Bible and spank the hell out of Pastor Asshole if he pulls this stunt again.
