As for Christmas movies and music they are great entertainment. so enjoy them and don't let others take the enjoyment away from you!
    Well said Bobbi! :D

    Christmas_Freak, as Bobbi said you have to make the decision to trust and believe in the Lord despite what others may say at times. I'm not sure if you are speaking of Christmas movies or something like Angels and Demons which just came out, but no matter what it's uip to you to decide if seeing a certain movie is a "sin".

    "This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus." ~Romans 3:22-24
    Many people can go overboard with what they believe is "against" God. The only thing we can truly base it on is His perfect Word. Don't let anyone make you disbelieve what it is in your heart that you know is true and perfect. God is the one who has the last "say" and because we were all born sinners we must repent through the grace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Hang in there and let us know if we can help! I hope we've helped you out in some way already...

    Blessings,
    Bob

    Not sure that I can add much, but I know it's easy sometimes to tell yourself that it's just wishful thinking and that you're making it all up in your head. I have a hard time debating people about it- I don't know how to convince them. All I know is that I know that it's not just a fairytale, due to personal experience. I think with the movies and other things that people are against, it's because sometimes they get your mind to go places that it shouldn't go, and ideally, your mind should always be on God or about his business. At least that's my understanding of it. Good luck!

    You are very welcome. Please pray for my great nephew John Matthew he had to get 4 shots yesterday and he is fevered up and sore tonight. I feel bad when kids have to get shots. But he was behind on shots and he still needs two more next month!

    I am happy to announce my blood INR is 2.7 which is excellent tonight. In order to keep it like this they want me to take my coumadin for 5 days straight then skip for two days. hopefully this will work out for me. My chest is not so bothersome tonight. God is merciful and grand!

    Please pray for my neighbor K.C. he lost his 19 year old nephew. I believe it was complications due to diabetes.
