    What is more amazing, that an innocent man sacrificed his life so that we could live?
    Or that God became man in order to perform that very task?

    We've heard the story, over and over again. A baby... a manger... a star... and wise men.
    But what about the fact that the Creator of mankind, became an infant?
    That's like Edison becoming a light bulb, Fleming becoming Penicillin or Steve jobs becoming a computer. It just doesn't make sense... it's so backwards and impossible, that you have to ask, "Why?"

    Why would someone unparalleled and magnificent become vulnerable and ordinary? And of course the answer is us. There was only one reason God would take on flesh, knowing what the end result would be. And it wasn't death on a cross. That was Satan's hope, but God knew the finality of this action wouldn't be seen until eternity.

    So this year, when I wish you merry Christmas, what I am really saying is, "May you fully realize the unimaginable act that has taken place on your behalf and may your life be forever changed by it."

    Blessings friends!

      I believe that a man, (begotten by God,) rejoined God. I am not arguing with you sed-me. I just believe Jesus had returned (through 100% willingness) to God. He was an individual who loved God so much that he rejoined the Spirit of God. And operated accordingly. (He cooperated with God's plan to enlighten us by fulfilling His role on earth.)
      You do not have to argue, comment or reply because I am just sharing my viewpoint.

      Beautifully stated, Beth!  Yes, it is unimaginable, but it happened.  I have fully realized what a high price it was that was paid for me ...in full.  Praise Him!  Blessings to all!

      I think you make some very astonishing points Sed-me and I completely agree with you. I feel it will be our actual translation into the spirit to know just exactly what it means. It is so hard to imagine anyone could love us so much. Thank you for this and God bless you.

      Jobs
      Announced that he didn’t want to have anything to do with worshipping such a God, and he never went back to church. Jobs became a Buddhist after a trip to India in 1974. Many Buddhists do not believe in reincarnation. Some may call these individuals atheists.

      Edison quote
      "So far as religion of the day is concerned, it is a damned fake... Religion is all bunk." I cannot believe in the immortality of the soul. . . . I am an aggregate of cells, as, for instance, New York City is an aggregate of individuals. Will New York City go to heaven? . . . . No; nature made us--nature did it all--not the gods of the religions

      Imagination maybe the closest thing to being Godlike. To be honest nobody knows God and thr 99% unknowns spirit .  God is just a word and nature is the only true religion for everyone all the time..

        Looks like you have one up on Edison, since at least you admit "nature," (as many including him refer to it), is simply another religion.  Typically it reads more like "nature" is the god, and Scientism, which  encompasses it, is the religion.

            I made no reference to any other religion, or book.  I simply gave you kudos for acknowledging what many will not.

              A nature religion is a believes the natural world is an embodiment of divinity, sacredness or spiritual power. Nature religions include indigenous religions practiced in various parts of the world by cultures who consider the environment to be imbued with spirits and other sacred entities

              Maybe that is why America made Atheists a religion. Religion dose not have to mean God, nor can God be proven to exist or not, either way.

                Unimaginable!
                Funny word, because everything we have ever done in life, was all once imagined
