Quote :: Jesus Christ and His Incarnation

"If we were going to try to take the focus off Christ at Christmas...If I were determined to conceal the true meaning of Christmas... I would make sure society put an emphasis on lights instead of THE light, on stars on trees instead of THE star, on Santa instead of a lowly stable. I would leave the baby in the manger, I wouldn't take the rest of the trip to the Cross. I would make sure that getting gifts was more important than the greatest gift given to man. I would encourage buying instead of reminding people that one came to buy them back and redeem them from sin. That's what I would do, if I wanted to subvert the true message of the season." Michael Catt
