Christmas 2006!

The last supper

To all my readers:

Merry Christmas -I hope you enjoy your day (presents included ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m sure you all know that today is not just a day about gifts, but also the day that we celebrate the earthly birth of our Saviour. So whilst it may have become a day which pagans use as an excuse for a holiday and a good drinking binge, we can grab hold of the oportunity to thank the Lord again for sending his son.

Here are some things for you to think about concerning the birth of Jesus. If Jesus had never been born our world would be a vastly different place! (What if Jesus Had Never Been Born? – D. James Kennedy)

-Christianity has influenced the world’s view of the value of human life
-Christianity has contributed largely to charity and helping the poor
-Christianity has contributed heavily to education
-Christianity has contributed to Civil Liberties
-Christianity has impacted science by giving people a desire to “think God’s thoughts after Him”
-Christianity has influenced free enterprise, ecconomy and work ethic
-Christianity has influenced health and medicine (value of human life)
Christianity has influenced people’s morals
-Christianity has influenced arts and music (Sistene Chapel)
-Christianity has changed lives forever by Jesus’ Death

This is just a few areas where, had it not been for the birth of Christ, our world would not be the same place we have come to know today!

Think about it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for that, Ant. My dad has commented before on what a good book “What if Jesus Had Never Been Born?” is. Now I’m even more interested in reading it myself.
