Chuck Colson

But as my colleague theologian T. M. Moore has written, from the beginning, Christ also brought division into the world. “The Good News of Christmas,” writes T. M., “is for those who trust in Christ and follow Him as fishers of men. For all the rest—all the liars, deceivers, oppressors, . . . greedy, covetous, and selfish—the message of Christmas is one of shame, wrath, and judgment.” That’s the hard truth of Christmas, but one we must not forget.

The shepherds who first believed in Jesus likely faced oppression and were treated as outcasts. Like them, we must maintain our faith regardless of the world’s reaction. And we must never water down the message of Christ’s birth.

On behalf of all of us here at BreakPoint, this is Chuck Colson from Washington, D.C., wishing you a holy and merry Christmas.
