    Bruce?: Do you have a Nativity Scene to Show Others what it's all about? Everyday is a Good Day to Tell Others about His Birth.Preach The Good News! No man can come to Christ except---John 6:44 / If we confess Our Sins, He is Faithful-- to Forgive-- 1 John 1:9 / Washed in His Blood Revelation 1:5 / He will Baptist you with The Holy Ghost-Mark 1:8 / You will be Changed--2Corinthians 5:17

    Glory to God for sending His own Son (God incarnate) to be born of a virgin and to die for us on the cross so that we could be saved from our sins. What a Saviour! I have not observed Christmas for over thirty years because I believe that mixing pagan tradition with His holy birth dishonors my Saviour. If God wanted us to observe Jesus' birth would He not have revealed this to us in His Word?
