Santa is a delightfully generous and adorably rotund sort of a guy, isn’t he? But have we ever really thought about what he stands for? Is he really generous at all? Is he a harmless bit of fun or does he covertly feed us a terrible lie of what generosity is? Are Santa and his gifts a cheery add-on to Christmas, or in our hearts does he risk overshadowing the true giver and gift or Christmas?
Check out this video by Glen Scrivener, which is an extract from a sermon he gave last year on Isaiah 9:2-7. You can see the full-text here.
(Glen is not suggesting that Santa is ‘the anti-Christ’ but rather that he is the opposite of Christ).
