To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!

About Me

My photo
I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!

JESUS' BIRTHDAY - NOT!

There are reasons I do not celebrate December 25, or any other date, as Jesus' birthday. In a nutshell, both the Old and New Testaments say that we are not to add to God's Word nor take from it (Deut. 4:1-2; 12:32; Prov. 30:6; 2 John 9; Rev. 22:18-19). We are told to remember the Messiah's death, burial, and resurrection (Luke 22; 1 Cor. 11:22-26). We are not told when He came in human flesh, nor are we told to celebrate that occasion. The Bible is silent. To "speak as the Oracles of God" (1 Peter 4:11) is to be silent where it is silent.
