The real reason for the season
December 26, 2012
As I walked through downtown the other day, I saw the spirit of Christmas everywhere.
For the merchants it is the best time of the year. It is a time of giving presents for members of our family and friends.
But the real reason for the special season is the celebration of Christ's birthday!
Jesus Christ's coming has changed world history. No other man ever performed miracles as Jesus did.
He healed the sick, restored the sight of the blind, brought back to life several dead. He walked on water to meet his friends.
Christ's life culminated by his Resurrection showed his divine power. He visited his followers, dined with them and instructed them to preach his Gospel to the whole world.
Christ's teaching provided a foundation to our western civilization.
If applied, Christian moral values can heal our sick society.
