I've written a dozen or so new poems in the last week... they and other newer poems will eventually be printed in a second paperback volume of such works; until then, the first volume of my poetic works is available:
Bittersweet Impressions & Inspirations, original poems and a few short stories, 310pp., pb., 6x9, 20.00 + P&H.
Those who celebrate Christmas and who get lost in the self-absorbed materialism, even pseudo-piously trying to squeeze Christ in there somehow (the wise men didn't give the gifts to each other!) need to repent and realize that Christ's birth was for one reason and one reason alone—to redeem His SINFUL people (not provide for them a humanistic holiday riddled with paganism).
The cross is not merely a nice idea. If it has not changed you completely, it has not changed you at all.

See also: my booklet, Merry Antichrist-mas...? Is Christmas Christian or Pagan...? —Is it Pagan even if Christ is in it...?, 24pp., 2.50 + P&H, which is also listed here for free:
If you find value in what you read... support this ministry. Do you not pay for a meal and even leave a tip for the waitress? Christendom is dying because of apathy and inactivity and selfishness... yet the left, the communists, the perverts, the false religions, the antichrists have no shortage of people who sacrifice for their evil cause. You reap what you sow. If the true priests and prophets are neglected, so is the soul of the nation. If God's command to tithe and support the priests and prophets is ignored... again, you reap what you sow. "Shall a man rob God...?" —yes, but he will not get away with it! If you are not doing anything real for the Kingdom—pray for and support those who are so doing, daily, day and night.
