On the subject of the Divine origin of Jesus:
David Dixon Porter (1813-91), an admiral in the U.S. Navy and later the superintendent of U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, stated:
"When one sees how much has been done for the world by the disciples of Christ and those professing the Christian religion, he must be astonished to find anyone who hesitates to believe in the Divine origin of Jesus and the wonderful works He performed, all of which are so beautifully portrayed by the author of the work under consideration; and no man or woman of real intelligence would hesitate to believe that it is only through Christ that sinners can be saved, unless their vanity is so great that they are capable of saving themselves without an intermediary."
The Bible states in Luke 2:11, "For unto you is born in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Lord."
Keep Jesus Christ in your Christmas.
