Strip aside all the pomp and pretense of religion… the abuse and hypocrisy… this is the greatest story ever told.
Leave, for just a moment, the endless debate of whether it’s fact or fiction.
There is no more beautiful story than a creator god coming as a poor “nobody” to rescue his creation.
This God became an immigrant. Unwanted and unnoticed. Rejected.
Love, in this story, drove him to do this. Oh, how I love him.
“He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” John 1:11
