Short Bits: Fact or Fiction

This time of year, we can all get mighty distracted by all the hubbub and totally miss the real Reason for the Season. This quote by C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) is worth pondering. REALLY pondering.

Here are just a very few compelling facts to consider as you open, empty, flatten, and discard your Amazon boxes:

  • Christmas = "Christ's Mass" = Messiah (Savior, Deliverer) + Mass (Commemorating the Last Supper and Jesus’ bodily sacrifice for the sins of mankind).

  • Number of Believers = 2.2 billion or >31% of the world’s population and far exceeding other beliefs, however meaningful. Objectively, In terms of cost-benefit, it's the best deal going.

  • The Bible is the best-selling book of all time, with 5 billion copies in >3,300 languages (all or part).

  • Gregorian Calendar – Most of the world uses a calendar framed around Christ’s birth, B.C., A.D.

Jesus, the God-man influencer who inspired all this was a carpenter’s son, born in a small-town barn. Quite a departure from the fame and fortune-driven celebrity culture of today and yet with enduring, immeasurable impact. No other facts nullify these truths.

During these wonky times, please ask yourself Lewis’s implied question:

If Jesus is for real and Christianity is true, what do we need to do? ❤️💚❤️

Merry, Merry CHRISTMas!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
