Question: "What is the true meaning of Christmas?"

Answer: The true meaning of Christmas is love. John 3:16-17 says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this incredible act of love.

The real Christmas story is the story of God's becoming a human being in the Person of Jesus Christ. Why did God do such a thing? Because He loves us! Why was Christmas necessary? Because we needed a Savior! Why does God love us so much? Because He is love itself (1 John 4:8). Why do we celebrate Christmas each year? Out of gratitude for what God did for us, we remember His birth by giving each other gifts, worshipping Him, and being especially conscious of the poor and less fortunate.

The true meaning of Christmas is love. God loved His own and provided a way—the only Way—for us to spend eternity with Him. He gave His only Son to take our punishment for our sins. He paid the price in full, and we are free from condemnation when we accept that free gift of love. "But God demonstrated His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8).

Around here it means parents overspend on their spoiled teenage brats thinking somehow they might start to like them. Whereas, a swift kick in their spoiled butts would do the trick. But hey, keep running up those credit cards, let me know how that works for you.
Couldn't agree more, post of the year!

So you start a thread about the true meaning of Christmas. You state:
"The true meaning of Christmas is love."
Then you start a thread about myself saying unkind things, then you post under different names speaking in racial slurs. As if you are fulling anyone.
When you are cutting and pasting the millions of words you do on this site, please actually try to comprehend what you are saying. Try to be true to yourself and not so hypocritical.

True colors shining through Susan, you are quite the little racist. Start a thread about Christmas then start talking trash.
Not very surprised though.
