CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS.>>COMING UP. CHARLES DICKENS WROTE ONE OF THE FAVORITE CHRISTMAS CLASSICS. THE WE’LL TELL YOU THE STORY BEHIND THE CHRISTMAS CAROL WHEN WE RETURN. >>IT’S A HOLIDAY TRADITION FOR MANY FAMILIES WATCHING OR READING CHARLES DICKENS. THE CLASSIC STORY, A CHRISTMAS CAROL. THOUGH IT’S STUDIED TODAY, FEW KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT DICKENS REALLY BELIEVED.>>TODAY, IT’S CHRISTMAS DAY, OF COURSE.>>FROM THE SCREEN TO THE STAGE. THE TRANSFORMATION OF EBENEZER SCROOGE IN THE MINDS OF ADULTS AND CHILDREN. ALL THESE VERSIONS ARE THE RESULT OF CHARLES DICKENS CLASSIC NOVEL “A CHRISTMAS CAROL”. THE ENGLISH WRITER LOVED THE HOLIDAY AND QUOTED SAYING “I WILL HONOR CHRISTMAS IN MY HEART AND TRY TO KEEP IT ALL YEAR”. >>MANKIND WAS MY BUSINESS, COMMON WELFARE WAS MY BUSINESS, CHARITY, BENEVOLENCE WERE ALL MY BUSINESS. >>HE STUDY DICKENS EXTENSIVELY EVEN IN THE UK STUDYING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SAINT ANDREWS ON THE WORKS OF DICKENS. >>THAT’S WHAT’S GOING TO BE PREVALENT WITH ANYTHING WE READ BY DICKENS.

FOR DICKENS, THE GOLDEN RULE.>>THE FAITH OF CHARLES DICKENS IS THIS LITTLE KNOWN WORK WRITTEN OVER A PERIOD OF 3 YEARS FOR HIS CHILDREN. IT’S SIMPLY TITLED “THE LIFE OF OUR LORD”. CRITICS ARE RIGHT, IT’S NOT A FANTASTIC PIECE OF LITERATURE, BUT IT SHINES A BRIGHT LINE ON DICKENS FAITH BECAUSE HE IS THE SOLE EDITOR OF THIS THING. HE CALLED THE LIFE OF THE LORD, A GOSPEL OF HARMONY WHERE IT’S WE HAVE HAD INTO A SINGLE NARRATIVE. IN THIS CASE, DICKENS SUMMARIZED THE LIFE OF HIS CHILDREN >>”MY DEAR CHILDREN, YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT JESUS CHRIST”.>>A CHRISTIAN FAMILY AT THAT TIME WOULD HAVE HAD AT LEAST TWO BOOKS IN THEIR HOME. THE BIBLE AND THE BOOK OF HARMONY.>>THIS IS NOTHING THAT DICKENS WOULD LEAVE TO SOMEONE ELSE. HE WOULDN’T HAVE DONE THAT. THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN A VERY IMPORTANT TOOL IN THE DICKENS FAMILY AND FOR RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION AND CHRISTIAN THINKING. >>COLLEGE SAYS, VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THIS PART OF DICKEN’S WORK OR HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH. LITERARY CRITICS CLAIMED IT WAS UNCHRISTIAN AND NOT CRITICAL. >>I WOULD BE SO AUDACIOUS TO SUGGEST THAT THIS ICONIC BRITISH LITERATURE WAS SOMEHOW A MAN OF FAITH. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN THAT HOSTILITY OTHER THAN PEOPLE LIKE DARKNESS BETTER THAN LIGHT. >>OVER THE YEARS IT HASN’T ALWAYS BEEN NEGATIVE. HANDFUL OF LITERARY SCHOLARS HAVE EXPLAINED THE FAITH OF DICKENS. COLLEGE SAYS HE BELIEVES GOD WANTED HIM TO WRITE THIS BOOK. “GOD AND DICKENS”.>>ALL OF THIS IS GUIDED BY OUR LORD. IT WAS ACTUALLY RATHER EASY TO GET A PUBLISHER. THAT’S NOT ALWAYS TRUE. IT’S JUST A GOOD FEELING WHEN YOU KNOW THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS INVOLVED, AND THIS IS NOT YOUR PROJECT. >>HE DEDICATES THE BOOK TO HIS GRANDCHILDREN, WRITING “MAY YOU EACH FIND JOY AS DICKENS AND THE SAVIOR”. >>YOU ARE SHARE THIS STORY ON CBNNEWS.COM AND POST OF FROM RIGHT THERE. WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK. >>HELLO, THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON. I HAVE JUST FINISHED PUBLISHING THIS BOOK. THE GOSPEL OF JOHN. >>MY HOPE IS IF YOU WILL USE THIS QUOTING TO ALLOW THE WORD OF GOD ABIDE IN YOU.>>LISTEN TO IT. AGAIN AND AGAIN AND SPEAK THE WORDS ALONG WITH ME. LET THESE GREAT PASSAGES FILL YOUR HEART AS THE WORD OF GOD TRANSFORMS YOUR MIND AND BUILDS YOUR FAITH. >>FINALLY THIS WEEK, SANTA CLAUS IS A FAMILIAR CHARACTER AT CHRISTMASTIME AND SOME MIGHT NOT KNOW THAT HE’S ACTUALLY BASED ON A CHRISTIAN SAINT. HERE IS THE STORY ON JOLLY OLD ST. NICK.>>CHRISTMAS WITH PRESENTS AND STOCKINGS STUFFED WITH GOODIES. FOR MOST KIDS, THIS IS THE DOING OF SANTA CLAUS. BUT HISTORY AND TRADITION TAKE US BACK A THOUSAND YEARS. NICKLAUS WAS BORN HERE. WHEN HIS PARENTS DIED DURING THE PLAGUE, NICKLAUS WAS LEFT WITH A HUGE INHERITANCE. INSTEAD OF SPENDING IT ON HIMSELF, HE GAVE TO PEOPLE AND FED THE HUNGRY. LEGEND HAS IT THAT A FATHER WAS ABOUT TO BE FORCED TO MARRY OUT HIS DAUGHTER IN ORDER TO PAY FOR HIS DEBT. IT IS SAID THAT NICKLAUS CAME INTO THE HOUSE AND LEFT GOLD. NICKLAUS WAS SO GENEROUS WITH HIS WEALTH THAT HE LIVED A LIFE OF A PAUPER WITH NO WHERE TO LAY HIS HEAD BUT IN THE HOUSE OF GOD. HE WAS CHOSEN BISHOP BUT WASN’T EASY. NICKLAUS SPENT YEARS IN PRISON OFTENTIMES BEING TORTURED. THIS IS ALSO WHEN CONSTANTINE WAS FIGHTING CONTROL OF THIS VISION. THE SYMBOL, THE WORDS, IN THE SIGN YOU SHALL CONQUER AND NICKLAUS WAS FREED. AFTER HIS RELEASE, NICKLAUS RESUMED HIS POSITION AND CONSIDERED ONE OF THE TOP CHRISTIAN LEADERS IN THE EMPIRE. HE HELPED UNIFY THE CHURCH. AS AN OUT SPOKEN FOLLOWER OF CHRIST, NICKLAUS NEVER STEPPED AWAY FROM HIS FAITH. THIS IS THE SPOT WHERE NICKLAUS PREACHED. HIS LIFE AND DEATH WERE ENCAPSULATED IN THIS CHURCH. HE DIED IN 1843. OVER THE CENTURIES, MANY MEMORIES WERE CENTERED AROUND NICKLAUS. IN NICKLAUS’ DAY, PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE WROTE ANGELS IN THE BOOK OF OF LIFE. AROUND THE WORLD, THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENCES TO THE FATHER OF CHRISTMAS TO GERMAN GIVER WHO RIDES A DONKEY. NICKLAUS GOT AROUND RIDING A REINDEER. AND THE TINY REINDEER WE’VE ALL READ ABOUT, THAT IS IN MORRIS CREATION, A VISIT FROM SAINT NICK OR TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. AND HE RETURNED TO THE CELESTIAL CITY AND THE WORKSHOP BECAME THE NORTH POLE. MANY CHRISTIANS REMEMBER THE BIBLE FROM THIS. WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM SAINT NICK? NO. 1 THAT NO MATTER HOW DIFFICULT OUR LIFE BECOMES, WE SHOULD STAY FOCUSED ON GOD AND THAT IT’S BETTER TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE. AFTER ALL, THAT’S HOW NICKLAUS LIVED HIS LIFE AS AN EXAMPLE TO JESUS CHRIST.>>FASCINATING. WASN’T THAT AMAZING. I DIDN’T KNOW THIS. FROM ALL OF US HERE AT CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS, HAVE A VERY
