CHRISTMAS PREACHES A FAITH


A 2001 newspaper article explained that the president celebrated many faiths during the holidays – not only Christmas, but also presiding over a Jewish Hanukkah celebration and commemorating the end of Ramadan in a Washington mosque. Ari Fleischer, presidential spokesman, said, "The purpose is not to preach a particular faith. The purpose is to celebrate faith itself."


Christianity offers something different. Christmas preaches a very particular faith, because it is God’s specific fulfillment of a very precise promise.


(From a sermon by Glenn Durham, The First Promise – The Enduring Hope, 6/7/2010)
