Christianity Today (January 2009) captures my two favorite. (more…)
As local media concentrate on their top stories for 2008, let me throw in just one of mine for fun. (more…)
After spending the afternoon in John 14, it would be sin for me to reject Jesus’ words and believe in a modalistic god as some “evangelicals” do. They are not obedient in their faith.
I must obey by believing what Jesus told his disciples, for he speaks to me during these last hours of 2008.
I believe, Lord.
Marsh, an associate professor of ancient scripture at Brigham Young University, authored A Child is Born (CFI, 2008).
He writes unapologetically for the LDS Christmas story.
The very first page of the book put me in a foul mood when he described Jesus:
He was half mortal and half eternal (1).
I would like to share more quotes from this book later. But let me conclude with this Christmas truth:
For unto us a child is born, unto us as son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Merry Christmas to you all.
Glory to God.
So thankful for the birth of Jesus Christ.
