Some Christmas Thoughts By James White

Some Christmas Thoughts – Pros Apologian

I need to be careful and not post too many links to James White’s blog. Some people may find his blog more interesting and never come back. And it might already be too late! 🙂

Seriously though, James White always seems to have something interesting and helpful to say, and he is a true scholar. Now, for those who went to his blog and came back here, I did not link to his blog because it talks about Ergun Caner (though I confess I find that an interesting topic). But the primary reason for the link is for the Scriptural texts that he quotes which speak of the eternality of the Son of God, helping to balance the almost exclusive focus on the Incarnation. The Incarnation is a wonderful truth, but we place way too much emphasis on the infancy of Jesus Christ. It’s almost like we want Him to be weak and vulnerable in His appearance to us instead of Sovereign and Lord. Portraying Christ as Sovereign and Lord in glorious majesty and dominion over all, with Lordship and salvation belonging exclusively to Him and no other, offends the majority of human beings, but it is nothing short of the truth desperately needed to be proclaimed in these dark days. “Salvation is of the Lord” (Jonah 2:9 KJV).
