He knows if you are sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake . . . Who is He? If you answered, "Santa Claus," then you are wrong. There is only One who knows everything we do and whether or not we are good or bad. And He is God, Yahweh, our heavenly Father, the Creator of everything.
God is omniscient or all-knowing (
Why do you suppose such a legend was started, particularly
about a man who went through torture for Christ's sake? Surely Nicholas
would not have wanted anyone to embellish some sort of story about him,
particularly by adding abilities or attributes which are only true of God!
So just who do you think is behind the legend of Santa Claus? Who is it
that you think would like to take something as righteous as a man who suffered
torture for the sake of Christ and turn it into something materialistic?
Who is it that you think would use such a legend to encourage parents to
lie to their children? Who would want to take the qualities that only God
possesses and assign them to an imaginary being? It is Satan who is the
father of lies (
And now one question remains. What about you? Are you to be Satan's willing accomplice? Will you participate in perpetuating this terrible lie about Santa Claus with your children or children that you know? Will you be part and parcel of taking the holy attributes of God (that He sees all and knows all) and blasphemously assign them to an imaginary character? Or will you honor our all-seeing, all-knowing, ever-present and holy God by exposing this lie of Satan's? Who is behind Santa Claus? Satan is. But you don't have to be with him.
