“…Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.” – Isaiah 7:14
Christmas begins with a virgin birth. What do you think about that? Have you considered what it means if it’s NOT true?
- It means Joseph and Mary lied about Jesus’ birth, which makes them despicable or delusional.
- It means the Bible contains lies, which makes it an untrustworthy book.
- It means the true nature of Jesus is missed, for without it, He’s just an ordinary man, conceived like you and me.
Question: Do you believe Jesus rose from the dead?
The Bible is clear. A person cannot be a Christian if he or she doesn’t believe it. Yet, there are some who believe in Jesus’ resurrection, but not His virgin birth. The intellectual inconsistency of believing one miracle and not another is a wonder to behold. If Jesus rose from the dead, what’s the big deal about His virgin birth?
With God, nothing is impossible. And 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.
