Classic BibChr Christmas links

Christmas has long been a favorite season and event for me. Christmas carols pre-evangelized me, and it's always been a wonderful time. So I've got some links to my past writing (and some of your contributions, Dear Readers) to share you might have missed:
  • From my web site, there's the essay To Tell the Truth, Virginia.... It's a Gospel presentation keying off of Isaiah 7:14.
  • From December of 2004 comes the sermon Longing for Christmas, in which I preach on the flow of OT prophecy pointing to the Messiah, Jesus.

"Ask your mom."

Yes, please--because Dad would rather not talk about it.

Duh!

::sigh:: The video for Open The Present, NOW is gone.

And my curiosity was truly peaked... even though I don't watch 24 - too much blood and violence (and repetitive story lines...) for me.

Merry CHRISTmas, Dan.

Oh, I'm sorry. And I can't access YouTube from work. I'll check it later.

DJP said...

OK, try now. I think I have a good link.

I may have mentioned this before, but my favorite question of my then 5 y.o. re: the whole virgin birth thing...

"Mom, if God put Jesus in Mary's tummy, and God put me in your tummy, why am I sinful but Jesus wasn't????"

I was tempted to answer - "It's your dad's fault."

But settled for "That's a a really good question we'll have to talk about more one day. But now how about we talk about the presents you're going to open Christmas morning!! What do you think is in all those boxes??"

Appeal to rampant childish materialism successful. Crisis averted.

For now...

To quote my dear wife: "It's hard to explain the hypostatic union to a two-year-old."

Not only did my parents lie to me about santa, but they lied to me about the three kings also..which supposedly come by everyone's homes on their, apparently, flying camels and leave gifts for every kid under the tree...BIG disappointment...all that much effort spent collecting grass for the poor camels to eat. I was always so happy to see all the grass gone and the cookies and milk half eaten...of course and the toys under the tree..
I ain't doing the same. There are no exceptions to the 9th commandment that I know of.
