One of the things that most notice is the story of Santa Clauss given to children around Christmas is very similar to the story told to Christians for
Jesus. So, is Jesus the Santa for those who refuse to grow up, as they learn Santa is all made up?
Some suggest there are issues of similarity.
These are some characteristics of Santa Claus. He:
•is omniscient, seeing all things that happen.
•is good and loving.
•can cause miracles.
•rewards people for doing good.
•demands belief that he is real.
These are all attributes that are shared with the Christian view of God. One might ask then, is a belief in Santa Claus equivalent to a belief in a
god? To a child's eyes, it must be very similar.
Alternatively, it may be considered that once the myth is shattered in later years it will become a source of distrust.
Kids know Santa might be real because of the story and presents show up under the tree, if they are good children.
Now, does Jesus leave any rewards, like eternal life, that anyone has found anyone telling about?
Just how faked up is the Jesus story when the Trinity is faked up in the Bible?
When Jesus declairs that: ""Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father." (John 20:17) it appears that he didn't do the death on
the cross thing, else he would have been with god in death.
Did Jesus become as Santa Clauss and only those liking nice stories take it all in as much as children take in Santa.
It appears Jesus is the very root for the Santa theme with gifts being brought afar to the child.
Since, all the Christians declair that they are the body of Christ Jesus, when the Santa person that sits the kids on his lap in Department Stores
really Jesus wearing a Santa Suit and a Grey Beard?
Should adults grow up, or keep Jesus in a Santa Suit?
