The forgotten story behind the Christmas holiday
Pastor's Christmas Greeting 2015 here...
About than 2000 years after birth, Jesus remains the most misunderstood being in all of human history. His followers are divided as to Who He really is. The Center for the Study of Global Christianity (CSGC) at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary reports that as of 2014 there are approximately 45,000 Christian denominations in the world. It is expected in the year 2025 the brokenness of Christinaity will reach 55,000. All or most claim their teachings to be faithful to the Scriptures.
So, who is Jesus Christ? Most Christians agree that Jesus is God in the flesh. Others see him as a human being, a lesser god. Still others teach that God is personal and interested in our daily affairs, as opposed to the concept of a distant God who created all but is not involved in our lives. If He is close to us, then where is He?
What do the Holy Scriptures teach about Jesus? Immanuel: God With Us reveals a picture of God seldom considered among Christians and utterly rejected by atheists. The Bible says that He is the Word. What does that mean?
Did you know that before Jesus was born, His Hebrew name was already Immanuel?
Time, society, financial and political gain, theological differences have all taken their toll on obscuring the reason why Jesus was born on Earth. “He came so save us,” does not tell us why he had to save us. “He saved us from sin,” does not tell us how sin entered a perfect creation.
Come and explore the most misunderstood event in history which affects every human being on the planet and the rest of the universe. The controversy between good and evil has its answer in Immanuel - “God with us.” Life and Peace is knocking at your door right now!
