I believe that the piece in the Dec. 8 issue by Paul Graves about Jesus should be answered. This is my effort to do so.
The fact is humility is one of the most important traits of Christian character. How better could it be symbolized than by having the greatest man to ever walk on the face of the Earth be born in a manger?
As to the promise of “peace on earth, good will toward men,” we all know the definition of the word peace. The fact that the promise has not come about does not mean that it never will. Christians have prayed for 2,000 years “thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in heaven.”
Many of us believe it will have a literal fulfillment, and the turmoil we see in the world today is the prelude to that happening. The Christian religion is really quite simple. I hate to stop here but I will.
