There are many deceptions being propagated in the world today. One of these deceptions is the the curious case of the modern Santa Claus. There are several interpretations of what the modern Santa Claus is.
Many are taught that this modern Santa Claus is the same or equal to the 4th century church father Nicholas of Bari, or Nicholas of Myra. However, with the passage of time, the knowledge of who this 4th century father was has transformed. With proper discernment, one can easily comprehend that the modern interpretation is a spirit being.
Spirit Being: Satanic Mimic
This modern Santa Claus may possess similar aspects of the early church father; however, the stories of the modern Santa Claus attribute his powers to that of pagan spirit beings and divine sources. The modern Santa Claus is said to possess the powers of omnipresence, omnipotence, omniscience, and has the ability to judge.
One need only site the lyrics to songs written about this entity for a glimpse of how people perceive it. The song Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, for instance, has these aspects of its godlike ability. Here are the lines in question:
He’s making a list and checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice (omnipresence)
He sees you when you’re sleepin’
He knows when you’re a wake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good (omniscience)
Now Santa is a busy man, He has no time to play
He’s got millions of stockings to fill on Christmas Day (omnipotence)
Each of these sets speak of a supernatural aspect of this being. The song speaks of an all knowing, ever present, all powerful, and loving being. These aspects are divine in nature, thus mimic the attributes of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
