I don't think Jesus was a very materialistic messiah. Would he have been waiting in line to get into Walmart on Black Friday morning? Would he expect expensive presents as proof that someone loved or cared for him? It strikes me as odd how Capitalism and Christianity are very contradictory ideologies and the fact that somehow greed and gluttony, the cornerstones of capitalism, the engines that make it all work, are deadly sins worthy of going to hell for. What do you think is the true spirit of Christmas? What would Jesus think of Chrismas as we conduct it today?
