Move one letter “N” around, and santa turns into satan. Now could all of this be a coincidence? Sure it could. Crazier things have happened. But if we agree that Santa Claus is a made up character and that for years we have been spreading the lie to children that he is real. And we believe that Satan is the father of lies, then it kind of makes you wonder if it really is a coincidence or not.

Bible students have known and proven that Satan is the greatest counterfeit of the Lord Jesus Christ. So it would only make sense for Satan to create such a character to do his work.

Now to the question of what kind of things should we allow as far as Santa decorations and other things. I am not in the business of trying to convince everyone to take my stand on issues. I know that by passing out Santa’s to adults you are not deceiving children and when you put them in your yard it doesn’t prove that you are wicked. However, I do think we are in danger of violating (1 Thessalonians 5:22).

My recommendation would be to get rid of them for the sake of being separate from the world. And try to avoid the slightest possibility of aiding in the deception of children. However, there is no verse of scripture that says “thou shalt have no Santa’s in your home”. The Holy Spirit will have to guide you into the right decision that will bring the most glory to God.

Jesus is the REAL reason for the season (Luke 2:10-14).
