This morning, the teacher in my adult Bible study class told us, "Santa Claus is the Antichrist." He further stated that kids worship Santa and they write letters to him asking him to heal their mother, etc. The teacher says that Santa has a god-like status: He sees you when you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good. So does Julian Assange and Homeland Security! The teacher said he tells kids in front of their parents there is no Santa Claus. One of the class members stated that when she was a kid, she viewed Santa Claus the same way she viewed Mickey Mouse. The teacher told her that kids are taught that Santa is everywhere. "So is Mickey Mouse," she replied. I stated that when I was a kid, I thought of Santa Claus as a guy in a red suit with reindeer who gave kids presents once a year. I didn't view him as a god. The teacher then said that when he visited a church, the church members sang Christmas songs. One person stood up and sang a Christmas song with Santa Claus in it, and the teacher turned around and walked out. Any thoughts?
