There's Nothing Partial About Christianity

Gonna keep this one short and sweet.

Too often, life for the sake of life leaves us unsatisfied. To be satisfied is to be whole, to be complete. This world is ill-suited for completeness. Everything about it comes to ruin, the tangible and the esoteric. Everything in existence but God.

God is possessed of all virtues. God is the source of all virtues. God has endless amounts of these virtues. Of His mercy, Isaiah says this:

Isaiah 9: 6-7
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, [a] Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David's throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.

God's only son, sent to Earth to pay our sinful debts, that we might someday stand before God and be judged. To die so we may live. If the superlative nature of this premise is lost on you, if you can't see how these acts touch both extremes of sacrifice and forgiveness, accept my humble pity.

However, understand that all the following words, too, are maxed out. They have only on or off switches. There are no degrees of these. If you're like me, you're darned glad that's the case.


If you have a distorted image of any of those, blame this world, not God.

Merry eternal Christmas, everyone. Keep Christ in Christmas, and keep Christmas forever.
