I'm stunned by the lack of reaction from Lansing-area churches about the real possibility that a statute to Satan will be erected on the front lawn of the State Capitol next week as part of the Christmas celebration.
As reported today in the Lansing State Journal, satanists in Michigan will erect a statute of Satan next week for several days as their way of celebrating Christmas. There will be no Nativity scene. This is because, according to the story, no Christian church has stepped forward to put one up and take it down everyday. Did anybody know about it?
There has to be boundaries to what is allowed for the celebration of one of the most sacred days of the year for Christians. Honoring the author of sin and all the vileness of this world is not one of them. We have war, murders, hunger, poverty, racism, domestic violence and all other forms of trouble because of him.
I'm offended that this is even a possibility at the hub for state government in this state.
Churches need to step up. We can't allow Jesus to be taken out of Christmas, especially in Lansing and in this state. We place ourselves in the bullseye for more of Satan's handiwork if we don't act.
Just my opinion. Anybody agree?
