|Jesus has no beginning nor end, does he need a birthday party?|
Jesus back into ChristmasYear after year I hear preachers meticulously telling us to "put back Jesus in the celebrations" because they clearly sensed he was not there. But let me ask, was Jesus ever there in Christmas? I mean in the original Christmas? Or even in any of our celebrations? any single year? What have we give Jesus for his birthday? Did we follow his words - "preach the Gospel to all nations?" I think not.
We took new clothes, some gave presents to each other (not to Jesus), and cheerfully go to Church (God will be happy if we simply 'go to church...') and do some ritualistic meaningless things and hope God would have been happy. Atleast thank God he's not here to express his unhappiness.

Isn't it sinful not to celebrate the "BIRTHDAY" of our God?
No! He just came as man that's all. Jesus taking a form as a human is not so significant as what his mission objectives were.
