Mary's Perspective on Christmas, Part 1

We want to get into the biblical definition of the incarnation, and it's a wonderful, beautiful message. Let's focus on the real meaning of Christmas.

The reason why Pharisaism is always popular is because we think it's possible to follow rules. "I can clean the outside of the dish but I can't clean the inside. I can't change my nature—it's hard-wired." But God can.

Jesus tells us, against everything the world suggests to us, that the root to extreme happiness is by way of holiness, purity, and integrity. The result of all these things is an incredible vision of God himself.
