The Birth of Jesus Christ

Tomorrow is the day on which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ the promised Messiah.

The story of the birth of our Messiah is available on the net for those that do not own a bible.

As opposed to commercialization of the holiday with gift purchases, light decorations and "holiday parties" we celebrate the birth of the Son of God who redeems us from our sins through his sacrifice.

While others may point to the incorporation of pagan symbols into the present day celebration of Christmas (Winter Solstice, "Christmas aka Yule Tree, Gift giving of the Manicheans of Europe, Saturnalia) this is more an example of successful growth of the faith.

A chronology of the life of Jesus Christ is available here.

Merry Christmas.
