  12. There is ONLY One Reason to Celebrate Christmas. It is the Birthday Celebration of the Only Begotten Son of Almighty God, the savior of the world. His life and death atoned for the infinite sin of Adam & Eve, the debt He did not Owe because we humans owed a Debt that we could not have paid in any other way. It is now possible for those who seek God, obey the Laws of God, and Pray constantly to thank God for everything we have, and everyone we cherish, because all of those are gifts from God our creator, and so we can go to heaven forever. By the Death of Christ he atoned for our sins, and will keep some of us from eternal torment in the pit of hell. God did not create death, the evil one did that by his envy of man, and rebellion against God. Jesus was the remedy for all who love God, and seek to do His Will, which is only good.

    You're Welcome !
