What does God say about Jesus and Christmas?

Each year our families gather to celebrate Christmas with parties, food, and gifts. Why do we gather, and what is the true meaning of Christmas? Let’s see what God says about it. Jer 1:4-5, “Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” God formed us, so doesn’t it make sense that He would know who we are, His individual purpose for each of our lives, and what we need? Including our need for a savior? Rom 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” God told us, some 1,500 years before Jesus’ birth, that Jes

What does God say about Jesus’ second coming?

Reasoning with God requires us to study the whole Bible, not just a few selected verses. It is context, which opens our reasoning to the complete meaning of verses, as we see them fully develop in the light of other verses, Is 28:10, “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:” So, let us explore what God has to say about Jesus and His second coming. One of the most important themes in the Old Testament points us to Jesus’ first appearance.

The dilemma is to live in our sins and face eternal death, or to swallow our pride and reason with God. Honestly reasoning with God will lead to our accepting Jesus as our savior, signaling the beginning of our transition away from willful sinning, Heb 10:26, “For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,” For will

What Does God Say About The Unexamined Life and Free Will?

“The unexamined life is not worth living.” Attributed to Socrates. Was Socrates correct? Prov 4:26-27, “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.” Apparently, God thinks we do need to examine our lives, and He wants us to use the free will He gave us to choose good rather than evil. Why? And, what makes a life worth living? If this life is all there is, we might want to get all we can get out of it. Or, as Henry David Thoreau expressed it, “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, a
