You're probably familiar with the traditional story of the birth of Christ. Jesus was born in the little town of Bethlehem, in a lowly manger. He was visited by shepherds and received gifts from 3 wise men. This has long been commemorated in nativity scenes, Christmas cards, songs and dramatic church productions. It's about peace and good will toward men - but that's not the whole story, or even a very accurate one. My interest here is not in setting the historical facts straight or even in condemning the practices that offend The One who is falsely claimed to be honored. And, while that would not be without value, my interest in this study is in bringing forth a message from obscurity that is entirely absent, not from the scriptures, themselves, but from the teachings of those who have been entrusted with the responsibility to inform us about the whole truth. Your version has had its teeth knocked out! The real story, the story of Christmas that should be told, is not one that inspires warm feelings of religious sentimentality but rather one that is truly life-changing. It's a poignant and very sobering cautionary tale that is intended for us, for you and I, today. It bears stark witness to the reality of judgement and of our personal accountability, speaking profoundly to the sincerity of our faith, love and hope!
