The Bible is filled with stories just as outrageous and ridiculous as those silly tales found in children’s books of the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and, of course, Ole Saint Nick. Stories the kids really believe, right! Have you ever wondered at the difference between those children's tales and Bible stories? Let’s face it; both children and Christians are equally gullible in their willingness to believe. And many of those children stories are rooted in Christian doctrines, such as St. Nick and Xmas angels. So, what’s the difference? Kids question as they grow and learn, and at some point it becomes impossible to believe in Santa Claus and the Easter bunny. Christians, on the other hand, have a magic wand that creates miracles and brings the impossible to reality—faith.
Let’s take a real critical, and satirical, look at some of those true Bible stories. As we do so, if you’re a Christian, perhaps you can remember when you were young, and recall the adrenaline rush that surged through your body as you ran about the yard in your new Easter outfit searching for that prize bunny egg. Or the joy and excitement of jumping out of bed on Christmas morning. No doubt you can also recall the shock and disappointment when your older cousin told you the truth about Santa Claus—a truly sad and devastating event. You were probably hurt and angry at your parents, just a little—right? But you grew up and now, looking back, it’s a bit comical—right? Christians, it's time to do a little more growing.
