“Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel.” - Matthew 1:23

NO VIRGIN BIRTH? NO CHRISTMAS.

Christmas is about a virgin birth. Do you believe it? Think about what it means if it isn’t true:

  1. It means Joseph and Mary lied about Jesus’ birth, which makes them despicable or delusional.
  2. It means the Bible contains lies, which makes it an untrustworthy book.
  3. It means the true nature of Jesus is missed. For without it, He’s just a man, conceived like you and me.

Question: Do you believe Jesus rose from the dead?

The Bible is clear. A person can’t be a Christian if he doesn’t. Yet some so-called enlightened Christians believe in Jesus’ resurrection, but not His virgin birth. Often motivated by a desire to have fire insurance and yet be sophisticated, their intellectual inconsistency of believing one miracle and not another is a wonder to behold. And if Jesus rose from the dead, what’s the big deal about His virgin birth?

With God, nothing is impossible. I believe it’s true because I believe the Bible is trustworthy. What about you?

Christmas, without the virgin birth, is just an empty shell.
