On this Boxing Day, after the experience of spending Christmas Day with my family, I ponder the meaning of "the spirit of Christmas" at home. Yet what does the spirit of Christmas really mean?
This Christmas is unlike all the Christmases before today: I love it, despite all the gift giving. Because of the magic of giving without any thought of myself, I am free of myself.
Who benefits from that freedom? All of us, who too have freed ourselves from wondering "What's in it for me?"
Instead, embraced by what began the world of today, I shall declare what makes us free:
"Love one another as each of us has learned to love our enemies in forgiveness and with the mercy of God."
For that is what the spirit of Christmas really means to me. What say thee?
Disclaimer: everything rI write is my opinion only, and not endorsed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Though I present their plan of salvation, my interpretation of Jesus as son of God differs greatly from theirs to remain true to all peoples of the Book, be they Ahmadi, Baha'i, Christian, Druze, Jew, Mandean, Muslim, or Yazidi
Indeed, Christmas represents God's forgiveness for the trespasses of past sins and mercy to everyone who truly repents of them. This is but my own personal opinion.
Yet the doubt of this sentiment by unbelievers is matched by their unspoken belief in the mercilessness of a cold and cruel world devoid of God, who to them is an imaginary friend.
To me, this imaginary friend is real in my heart, and he has a name: God Almighty. Before we chose to live this mortal life, we once were, are still, and shall remain His children, all of us sons and daughters of God.
For not only do I believe, the spirit of Christmas is captured in the imagination of all believers of God Almighty that one of his sons, the Christ Jesus, is real — not just in my heart, but in the heats of all believers on his name, too.
We know him to be born in Springtime, over 2000 years ago. Even though the celebration of Jesus' birth is a recent innovation assimilated into his worship, the love of God Almighty leads his faithful children to the Savior, born in a manger so long ago.
Although my faith sustains me, the truth that sets me free is this: Jesus as prophet has brought the Comforter that is promised to everyone who is baptized in his name. My belief in this promise sustains my faith in God Almighty. Because of that faith, I am free of the error of unbelief symbolized by one question — 'What's in it for me?"
That error is corrected by my belief in a merciful God — and in the son of God, the Christ Jesus — to become the quest for what is in that faith of the believer who believes in the greatest story ever told: the story of Jesus.
Christmas begins that story. Each light in a Christmas tree represents the light of the soul bequeathed with the Holy Ghost, enlightened with the belief in God Almighty and the faith of a mustard seed which seems so small yet grows quickly, basking in the light of Christ Jesus.
In this light, faith in Jesus and his Atonement, repentance of sins, baptism in his name, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end in the path of perseverance are the five things which are near and dear to my heart as the plan of salvation.
Christmas reminds me of these five things which shape my understanding of God's plan of salvation clearly to me. Christ Jesus' story clarifies how that understanding affirms my belief in God Almighty. As God's dearest child, Jesus is the shining example of perfection. This is why he is referred to as God's Only Begotten, and this metaphor is often taken literally, lest its metaphorical significance distract the doubters from its spiritual truth: the love of God for us all that Jesus died for our sins, and thus atoned for our sins. This is the truth of his Atonement, that I believe on the name of Jesus to follow in his example — to go and sin no more.
When Jesus was baptized in God's name by John the Baptist, he did so to show that he is the Word, and that the Light of the Word is of God Almighty.
Though men will debate of immaculate conception and conflate the term "son of God" into "Son of God," my belief in the Light has revealed to me through the Holy Ghost that the Word which enlightens us reflects upon that Light.
Thus am I freed by the Word to show that the Light of God Almighty shines on us all. Though this be my personal belief, it leads me to remain resolute in my belief in Jesus as son of God Almighty, comforted by the Holy Ghost that is of God, the Father of us all.
For God is One as the Light of the world, and Jesus, the Word that shines that Light on the world — by the subtle power of the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of God that enlightens all believers, even myself.
What is Christmas then? It is about the spirit of giving that transcends exchanging gifts and even that of Boxing Day Specials. Many people line up to to get the best deals in town at such sales events.
Though Christmas Day was yesterday, all of this on which I reflect might be forgotten, were I to indulge myself by lining up in a long queue to buy a Boxing Day special. Instead, I sit here crafting this Christmas message, and have no doubt of the import of my message to my followers, both old and new.
Christmas is special, because it teaches us about giving without expectation of getting something in return. Were it possible to be giving 24-7, 365 days a year, men, women and children might perfect themselves daily. Yet this wish to be giving of oneself is perfection. Free agency perfected might realize it as ideal, but reality favours being human; for to be human is to err, and forgiveness, divine — due to God's mercy.
This brings us to the birth of Jesus in a manger on a clear Spring night over two millennia ago.
For me, the birth of Jesus — symbolized by Christmas — defines the moment when God Almighty showed once again, shows even now, and shall show tomorrow how merciful that he truly is. This indeed is the mercy of God in action — compassion and loving-kindness for us all.
That an innocent child of God grew up to become his greatest prophet confirms the mercy of God Almighty and the destiny of that child as our savior Jesus as Messiah. Indeed, Christmas is about the Christ child, the gift of our salvation.

However, this is most likely propaganda designed to keep the neoconservatives occupied so that the Department of Home Security, the FBI and the local San Bernadino police department are keeping their fellow Americans safe for "truth, justice and the American way."
According to the propaganda manufactured by the news media, the instigators of the San Bernadino shooting are supposedly homegrown terrorists, inspired by Islamic State. This is based on scanty evidence and possible contamination of the couple's rented home by television news crews.
Like the recent Paris attack, it might be another false flag operation involving a Pakistani double agent working with her partner, both of whom were deemed expendable by the CIA. In both incidents, the men who shot up people were described as tall and white.
Yet the news media will not report this, because it does not fit with the propaganda that it is a domestic terrorist incident.
The San Bernardino Shooting: What Really Happened Behind the Scenes: http://21stcenturywire.com/2015/12/13/the-san-bernardino-shooting-what-really-happened-behind-the-scenes/
Years passed, and then in 2011, everything changed. Bashar al Assad, the current President of Syria is the name of that doctor.
During the Arab Spring of 2011, some of the people of his country rebelled against him. After bloody clashes, it became clear that Syria was in a civil war, a proxy war between Russia and Western nations aligned with America and sympathetic members of the Gulf States known as Friends of the Syrian Group.
According to a recent news report, Al-Qaeda of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) — also known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Islamic State — is covertly funded by the Friends of Syria Group (FSG), of whose members Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia fund Sunni covert mercenaries from around the world, including Canada such as a man who was convicted as one of the Toronto 18.
In essence, Western nations aligned with the US government are facilitating the covert training of home-grown militants by capturing them where a few of them radicalize. Once they are released from jail, these militants find their way to Syria as a part of a secret plan to send 100,000 covert mercenaries to Syria. Perhaps, about five percent of detained homegrown militants who are released from prison have radicalized.
Thus the fall of Syria is being plotted by these Western nations with advice from the US government. Rather than drop bombs, the West will instead detain their home-grown terrorists and let each one fly to Syria to join the ISIL which includes most of the al-Nusra Front, each of which are Islamic terrorist organizations.
While al Nusrah Front is aligned with Al Qaeda, ISIL has broken with al Qaeda due to the ISIL's leader's intent to absorb al Nusrah Front into ISIL. For a thorough background on Islamic State's leader, see the Update for December 7, 2015 below.)
Currently, the ISIL-dominated area in which consists of eastern Syria and northern Iraq has been turned into a quasi-Caliphate where Sharia law is the rule of the land. However, it also includes anywhere in the world where local Islamic dissidents have aligned with Islamic State e.g. northeastern Nigeria where Boko Haram have terrorized Christians and Muslim citizens.
When Syria falls, it will be because of the Western nations' leaders aligned with the US government who agreed to bomb Libya, and consequently contributed to the murder of Gaddafi by clan members whose clans were brutally suppressed under the Libya despot.
In that scenario, it is more likely the reason for Libya falling was due to the proposed gold currency that he was fronting and his announcement to share oil wealth with every Libyan, a promise that faded when the Arab Spring morphed into civil war.
In Syria, the Alawite Shi'a minority run the government while the Sunni majority have been routinely suppressed under the al-Assad Dynasty. Indeed, before the current proxy war by the superpowers of the US, Russia, China, and the Gulf States of Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, Syria outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood, possibly due to their ties to CIA.
It is known that Pakistan routinely receives US aid, and that their spy organization ISI secretly trained mujahideen to fight the Soviet Union during the Afghanistan civil war that preceded the Taleban and later US invasion. Thus Pakistan is complicit in the war crimes that the US and its allies in the Coalition committed in both Afghanistan and Iraq.
Today it is most likely that when Gitmo is closed, captured militants will be redeployed in Syria. This is likely why a certain militant was released from US custody.
Thus, in the future, this is what Homeland Security might do:
- Closely scrutinize males from the Middle East who are not Israelis.
- When said males exhibit radical Muslim ideology, isolate them from mainstream Muslims.
- Send in psy ops specialists to convince said males to commit to a terrorist act on US soil.
- Send in police and FBI to "foil" terrorist act and arrest said males.
- Send in more psy ops to convince "home-grown terrorist(s)" that redeploying in Syria is the only option.
- If they choose a trial, then that means their lawyer knows the truth about the covert mercenary plan devised by the FSG, particularly with the aid of Canada.

Criticism of Jihad movement: Sayyed Imam al-Sharif: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayyed_Imam_Al-Sharif#Criticism_of_Jihad_movement
Both books - even the Bible - affirm that all Christians, Jews and Muslims are sons and daughters of God - hence the term "people of the Book.".
Yet the Bible does not state that Jesus is the Only-Begotten. Rather, this doctrine was rooted in the pagan religions of the Gentile converts and assimilated as the Trinity. To believe that the Christ Jesus was solely a prophet and a son of God as all believers are sons and daughters of God is heresy to Christendom today.
Indeed, it is the evangelical Christians that aggressively proselyte the blasphemy — to Jews and Muslims alike — that Jesus is the Christ and God's Only Begotten. Were it not for insisting that Jesus is the Son of God, neither Jew not Muslim would persecute a Christian.
Yet the new Crusaders, those Evangelical fanatics, came to Iraq and Afghanistan with the invading US troops to offend the Muslims.
This is because of that aggressive evangelism by Christendom that the Crusades happened in response to the failure of the eastern Roman empire of Byzantium to appease the Muslims since the 7th Century CE.
When bribes only led the Muslim army to demand more tributes, the Emperor of Byzantium asked the western Roman Empire for help, which lead bastard sons of European kings to massacre innocent Syriac Christians, sack Constantinople, and build kingdoms in the Holy Land, much to the chagrin of the Muslims.
None of this was for the glory of God, but so that both Christians and Muslims could amass war booty. For both the Muslims and the Christians worship God, but their true motives are based on human glory. Their faith in God has never justified war. Rather, their willingness to go to war shows their lack of faith.
Today it is no different: Islamic State has obtained booty, be it ransom for captives or brides forced into sexual slavery. In contrast the West maintains it is fighting the IS for humanitarian reasons.
In fact, the West is in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan to recapture oil wells as dictated by multinational corporations.
Thus the Christians and their Zionist allies are there to help affirm the propaganda that Muslims are terrorists and they are fighting for peace. The Evangelical zealots are there to fan the flames of enmity even higher, showing once again that Crusaders wish only an Armageddon rather than peace just like their Islamic State counterparts.
It is these militants be they Zionist and Muslim that want Armageddon, but shall not get it. This is because mankind's actions will not usher in the Millenarian end of days, no matter what American televangelists and their Muslim counterparts say.
For these militants ignore the truth: only God knows when the End of Days is near. No amount of war will usher it in. It never happened during the Crusades circa 1000 CE, and neither shall it happen now.
So, why do Christian militants and their Zionist backers fight against their Muslim counterparts? Only to affirm the propaganda that Arabs are only Muslims, and these Muslims are terrorists, despite the fact that the Zionists are in control of the propagandists in mainstream media.
Yet not all Arabs are Muslims. Some of them are Christians while other Arabs are Jews. Few of them are terrorists, and those of them that are terrorist have bought the propaganda that the biggest evil in the world is the West especially America.
For recent history tends to prove their fears that Islam is threatened by the Zionists through the islamophobia propaganda, which is based on the lies about Arabs and Muslims.
However, the root of the problem is the bigotry of the West.
It is not Islam that is the problem; it is the lies that Zionist controlled media continues to manufacture which has led American domestic terrorists - most of whom are white supremists - to murder innocent people, most of whom are not Muslims.
It is the bigotry of French nationalists that lead Muslim youth of France to riot and turn to crime.
And that bigotry may lead to a civil war in the West between Muslim youth and Western youth, both of them radicalized by right wing ideology that says "my tribe is better than yours."
Thus are we at the pinnacle where we could let the governments of the West be consumed by the tyranny of fascism or remember the words of a famous prophet who said, "Love one another" and "love your enemies". He also warned mankind that living by the sword implies dying by the sword to discourage his disciples from ushering in the Kingdom of Heaven by force because it would only lead to death.
This prophet was Jesus.
Indeed, Jesus also tempered his love with a limited militancy by healing the ear of a soldier accidentally cut by the sword of one of his disciples. Yet the wielder of the second sword has never been known, probably to prevent the founding of a Christian militant sect that would have died by the sword.
In any case, militancy is anathema to Christianity, no matter what the militants say. If you live by the sword, be you Christian, Jew or Muslim, then you die by the sword. If this be for God, then he mourns the loss as much he does of the martyrs.
On this note, I leave you with this quote, which summarizes the folly of trying to usher in the Kingdom of Heaven by force:
'We often hear Jesus words quoted, “… for all who take the sword will perish by the sword (Matt. 26:52).” Some say He was condemning all military action throughout time. If this was the case, Jesus words simply were not true. Everyone who has taken the sword in conflict has not died violently. I believe Jesus’ words were most likely a warning to His own people. He was saying if you try to bring the kingdom of God by violence, you will all die. He was right. Those who rebelled against Rome died often in a very cruel manner.
'The instrument that would overcome Rome was not the sword but the cross. It was not an act of violence but an act of love. It was not vengeance but forgiveness that eventually conquered the Roman empire.' - http://www.thorncrownjournal.com/timeofchrist/zealots.html
Update: December 14, 2015
Yet the violent persecution by Muslims against Christians of the Middle East is being hidden from the unsuspecting citizens of Western nations. Like their Jewish brothers and sisters, Muslims find the Christians' glorification of the Christ Jesus as Son of God blasphemy.
There is much evidence to support the Muslim persecution of Ahmadiyyans, Christians, Jews, and Yazidis.
In Pakistan, Ahmadiyyans are banned from calling themselves Muslim and can be imprisoned for 10 years under Pakistan's anti-terrorist legislation.
In Syria, Christian boys and men were murdered by Islamic State terrorists, simply for being Christians. Their wives, sisters and daughters were forced to become sex slaves for the militants.
In northern Iraq, Yazidi women captured by Islamic State militants were forced to work in a brothel. Subject to brutal rape, some of them have committed suicide rather than be horribly abused by their captors.
Yet both America and Canada are letting in Syrian refugees, most of whom are Muslim. There is no quota for Christians because the Western nations are leaving that up to Christian refugee organizations to handle — that is, if the Syrian Christians make it safely out of Syria.
IMHO the people of the book — the Ahmadiyyans, the Baha'i, the Christians, the Jews, the Muslims and the Yazidi — are left take care of their own.
But a few questions still remain:
- Will the Ahmadiyyans, Baha'i, and Yazidi be free to choose to follow their own traditions without Christian evangelicals soft selling their way of worship?
- Will the same friction between Christians and Muslims that occurred in Syria continue in Canada and in the US?
- Will the Christians stand up to protect the people they sponsor without discrimination?

Desperate plight of Yazidi woman sold into sex slavery by ISIS
Faithkeepers is an upcoming documentary film about the violent persecution of Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East: http://faithkeepers.clarionproject.org/
Furthermore, on the day of the attack, French security forces were conducting a test of their security.
No coincidence at all.
However, it sounds more like a repeat of 9-11, complete with smoking guns all around.
Yet we have not seen the cafe that was "blown up." I have seen pictures of people being carried away from the sites of this attack. However, I am still awaiting the gory photos of the bomb blast site to disprove my theory that France created a false flag operation complete with actors playing different roles.
While the attacks on French and Belgian dissents is probably true, the woman killed in France was not a suicide bomber. Rather, she was near the actual suicide bomber. Yet the newspapers once again provided propaganda stating that she blew her self up. As well, a Moroccan woman's former friend sold pictures of her because she looks like the female killed when the bomb went off. However, the mainstream media printed those pictures everytime they mention the deceased female as a suicide bomber.
How ridiculous! A close examination of most of the French dissidents' lives reveal that most of them are not practising Muslims. Indeed, most of them are drug users who are easy prey for terrorists.
As well, it is because of French sentiments that they turn to drugs and petty crimes, only to end up in the midst of a homegrown attack. These sentiments make it difficult for French Muslim children with the bullying in school leading to dropping out of school. It is this bigotry that also leads the Briton dissidents of Britanny to desire to secede from France.
My reason for calling these so-called terrorists dissidents is because they are actually disefnranchised French minorities who are excluded from French society due to the fact that they are not European. Even if one of them rises to become valedectorian of their school, the French elite with conservative ties will let their children keep the minorities in their place.
So much for democracy in France. It is only for the Europeans, not the minorities. This false flag attack is proof of it. For little does the average Parisian know but the biggest threat to them is to let the nationalists rise to power as in the Vichy government of war-torn France. Once that happens, the rise of a far-right nations will lead to atrocities committed against the Syrians.
Indeed, France's biggest enemy is as white as they are.
Avec les nouvelles dans les médias traditionnels, l'attaque de Paris le 13 Novembre, ici à 2015 ressemble à la version française de 9-11. Toutefois, cela est seulement la propagande depuis médias traditionnels artisanat soigneusement tous les rapports de sauter aux conclusions sur les auteurs.
En outre, le jour de l'attaque, les forces de sécurité françaises effectuaient un test de leur sécurité.
Pas un hasard du tout.
Cependant, il ressemble plus à une répétition de 9-11, avec "smoking guns" tout autour.
Pourtant nous avons pas vu le café qui a été "gonflé". Je l'ai vu des gens emportés par les sites de cette attaque. Cependant, je suis toujours en attente des photos sanglantes de réfuter ma théorie que la France a créé une opération sous faux pavillon complet avec des acteurs jouant des rôles différents.
Alors que les attaques contre les dissidences français et belges est probablement vrai, la femme tuée en France n'a pas été un kamikaze. Au contraire, elle était près de la kamikaze réelle. Pourtant, les journaux une fois de plus à condition propagande affirmant qu'elle se fait exploser. En outre, l'ancien ami d'une femme marocaine vendu des photos d'elle parce qu'elle ressemble à la femelle tué lorsque la bombe a explosé. Cependant, les médias traditionnels imprimé ces photos chaque fois qu'ils mentionnent la femme décédée comme un kamikaze.
Comment ridicule! Un examen attentif de la plupart de la vie des dissidents français révèlent que la plupart d'entre eux ne sont pas des musulmans pratiquants. En effet, la plupart d'entre eux sont des utilisateurs de drogue qui sont des proies faciles pour les terroristes.
En outre, il est à cause de sentiments français qu'ils se tournent vers la drogue et des délits mineurs, pour finir au milieu d'une attaque du cru. Ces sentiments font qu'il est difficile pour les enfants musulmans français avec l'intimidation à l'école conduisant à l'abandon scolaire. Il est cette bigoterie qui mène également les dissidents bretons de Bretagne de vouloir se séparer de la France.
Ma raison de l'appel de ces soi-disant terroristes dissidents est parce qu'ils sont effectivement disefnranchised minorités françaises qui sont exclus de la société française en raison du fait qu'ils ne sont pas européens. Même si l'un d'eux se lève pour devenir valedectorian de leur école, l'élite française avec des liens conservateur laisser leurs enfants gardent les minorités à leur place.
Tant pis pour la démocratie en France. Il est seulement pour les Européens, et non pas les minorités. Cette attaque sous fausse bannière en est la preuve. Pour peu fait le savoir parisienne moyenne, mais la plus grande menace pour eux est de laisser les nationalistes montent au pouvoir comme dans le gouvernement de Vichy déchiré par la guerre de France. Une fois que cela arrive, la montée d'une extrême droite nations mènera à des atrocités commises contre les Syriens.
En effet, le plus grand ennemi de la France est blanc comme ils sont.
