Christmas is a celebration of the birthday of the founder of our morals and values
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) December 22, 2014
On December 22, 2014, My Positive Perspective host Jason Deierlein was joined by Pastor Gordon Cashwell for an episode to celebrate Christmas. At the beginning of the episode, Deierlein asks Gordon, “Why is it so important to you that we all appreciate and recognize the birthday of Jesus?” Cashwell replies, “We all should respect who Jesus was. I think sometimes we forget that this country was founded on Christian beliefs. That means that on Jesus’ birthday we remember that justice, humility and desire to achieve are behaviors were things we practice.”
Deierlein then asks, “Why do you think that schools and other public places are being forced to shut down their Christmas displays?” Cashwell replies, “I think sometimes others take advantage of the fact that our country is one that treats minorities fairly.” Deierlein then says, “I do not see anything wrong with celebrating the Christian moral lessons that were taught to us by Christ.”
Deierlein then says, “In the end, Christmas is a way for the majority of us to celebrate the birth of our religion and values. The right to display and enjoy this moment should never be taken away from us.”
My Positive Perspective is a media outlet believing that improvement in our community will be best achieved by focusing on the good things happening in our world today. Having survived a near fatal car accident as a youth, a shift of perception forced one to have a mentality of always concentrating on the brighter sides of things. This was true, and in my book, Return From a Comatose Mind, this belief was put to the test. Appreciation for life was the biggest thing one took away from my brush with death, and it is because of that gives me such a huge desire to be helpful to many. My Positive Perspective is a way of overcoming challenges through positive thinking.
