Losing sight of what Christmas is really all about is hardly a recent issue. Charles Dickens wrote his famous holiday story to address that very problem, and Charles Schultz did the same.
In the old cartoon classic, Charlie Brown struggled with a festive season that — like most other things about his life — just wasn’t coming together.
In a classic moment of angst and frustration — after being mocked for his scrawny little Christmas tree — Charlie Brown laments ‘I guess I really don’t know what Christmas is all about,’ before crying out that famous line…
‘Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about’?
The answer to his question was right there beside him. His friend Linus answers by taking Charlie Brown right back to the beginning, in Luke chapter two.
Ever since someone pointed it out, we can’t help but smile each time we watch this as we notice exactly what point in this story Linus drops his bloved security blanket.
Merry Christmas Clash nation, from our families to yours!

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
