AMERICAN LEFTISTS vs OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD!
Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child (SPOCC) – the largest Christmas gift-giving project in the world – has been brightening lives of children in third world countries since it was founded in 1993, with with over 100 million shoe boxes full of gifts and joy . SPOCC Founder William Franklin Graham III (or just plain Franklin) is reporting that Operation Christmas Child is now on track to deliver almost 10 million shoe boxes to disadvantaged kids this Christmas season around the world! This is an effort which cannot be matched by anyone, anywhere...and follows a trend of Christians doing what we do best - love others in Jesus' Name.
These wonderful gifts are packed by churches and some schools, as well as private schools around America by mostly ordinary families and their children, with a lot of love and care going into each box. Yet there are people whose dark soul of the night are not just criticizing Franklin Graham (son of the great Billy) for who he is, but by extension, they are grossly insulting the kindness and good hearts of America’s Christian families who supply the majority of these boxes. (Businesses, Scout Troops and other smaller outfits fill out a good percentage of boxes as well.)
So what are in these boxes that has the irreligious left, pagan grinches and just plain heartless people so upset? Well, I can tell you, first –hand, that these boxes are chock full of toothpaste; toothbrushes; mild soap; wash cloth; combs; socks; safe toys or age appropriate games (no cards etc); school supplies (pencils; crayons etc); t-shirts; picture books and even a personal note to either a boy or girl, if you wish. Dolls; stuffed animals; harmonicas and jump ropes are allowed. NO toy guns, NO toy knives and nothing dangerous are allowed. No liquid or food stuffs are included. No medicines or any violation of local cultural norms are packed in ANY of these boxes. Wow! I have never seen such subversive materials go out to children of the world! Yet, these liberal people who are champions at squealing for other people’s money, while spending absolutely none of their own for somebody else, would deprive a poor child in over 100 countries something they would buy their own kids!
In the past few years, Operation Christmas Child has been kicked out of the Air Force Academy and a number of public schools, for two reasons – they are a pure 100% Christian group and secondly, their leader is Franklin Graham. Who is Franklin, apart from the son of America’s greatest preacher Billy? Franklin Graham never fails to stand up for Jesus Christ – the Name above all names – and the superiority of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven. That’s why they hate him – Christ! It has nothing to do with the fact that he is a conservative. For almost 2000 years, the unredeemed has hated Jesus Christ and will continue to until He returns and puts a stop to this world system.
It matters not to the critics that Samaritan’sPurse are among the first responders whenever there is a catastrophe like Hurricane Sandy; or a Typhoon in Philippines or the Earthquake in Haiti. It matters not to the critics that Samaritan’s Purse will not only go and minister to all these westernized “Christian” countries with medicine, food and comfort.But Samaritan’s Purse gives freely and responds immediately to tragedies in Islamic and other countries as well.
So how does one respond when personally attacked for loving the less fortunate as we are commanded by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? Well, we pack more shoe boxes! In fact, we help Duck Dynasty’s Uncle Si pack 50,000 more shoe boxes by following these simple instructions and help brighten somebody else’s Christmas. (This post was inspired by criticism of my support for OCC from anonymous people).
WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, PRAY FOR THEM TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS LORD AND SAVIOR,THIS IS THE BEST GIFT WE CAN EVER GIVE ANYONE, SHORT OF WITNESSING TO THEM ONE ON ONE ABOUT THE LORD JESUS!
Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Hanukkah and MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL!
