Christmas and Pontius Pilate – The Universal Question (Opinion)

Expert analysis!!

Published

on

A lifetime of Christmas television specials asking or trying to answer the “true meaning of Christmas” question, may have our heads swimming in uncertainty. Is it, home, family, giving, kindness, brotherhood or some secret spiritual meaning that only the deepest thinkers or more indoctrinated can gather?

Scouring the pages of scripture for the answers always brings us to the same answers, but one answer stands out above them all.

It turns out that it is the same question asked by Pontius Pilate the Roman Procurator. Pilate held Jesus in custody and he alone had to decide his fate, even though he knew the Jews had delivered Christ to him out of spite and jealousy.

Pilate asked this question:

“…What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?” (Mt 27:22)

Oddly, Pilates question is the answer!

In fact, it is the only answer.

Understanding Christmas and why so many choose to fight against it, is centered on Pilate’s question.

Is it nativity scenes, Christmas specials, church plays with little children, family gatherings, gifts and good will – perhaps in part? But the question of what we will do with Jesus the Christ is the entire meaning of Christmas in a single interrogative.

The question is the difference between celebrating his birthday and celebrating his birth. His actual birthday means nothing, but his birth is the salvation of man.

It is this question that raises the ire of the atheist and calls to the divine nature of true men. When the question is properly answered it produces new life.

Jesus said it best – “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (Jn 10:10b)

We must look to the Apostle Peter for the perfect answer to Pilate’s question. When Jesus Christ asked
Peter, who do men think I am and then who did Peter think he was, he answered…

“Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Mt 16:16b)

Peter’s answer leaves only one universal question and that is – what will you do with this man Jesus?

We would be remiss if we left out a third and final question.

In this season of searching for the perfect gift it might amaze you to learn that Christ also urged us to search for the perfect gift just by asking one important question.

The woman at the well in Samaria asked a lot of questions to Jesus and she argued some religious points with him about the proper form and place of worship. Christ diverted her attention away from the liturgy and ceremony.

Jesus drove the matter home by calling on her to recognize who he really was and asking him for a gift. To wit:

“Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.” (Jn 4:10)

Over simplistic? Not at all, in fact, Christmas does come down to the three most important questions any man or nation will ever ask.

1.What will you do with the man called Jesus?
2.Who do you think he is?
3.Will you ask him for the gift of eternal life?

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
(Ro 6:23)

President Trump Calls On United Nations To Hold China Accountable For Causing Pandemic

Published

on

President Trump has come out and called upon the United Nations to step up to the plate and hold China accountable for causing the coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the globe, killing hundreds of thousands of people and almost leading to economic collapse for America and many other nations across the world. The president made his confrontational speech to the United Nations General Assembly in a recorded address a day earlier at the White House. The tone of his talk made it absolutely clear he’s not at all happy with China, the nation where this mess originated from. via Washington Examiner: His speech contained a list of accusations against Beijing, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans. “The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions. China absolutely should be held accountable for causing this mess. There are a lot of theories out there that suggest this virus was created and purposefully leaked into the world. We don’t know if that’s true, but even if it isn’t and the whole thing was an accident, the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for all of the horrific loss of life and economic damage this has caused. As such, they need to step up to the plate and make this right. They need to take responsibility for their actions and their blatant failures to get the spread of this illness under control.

Liberal Officials At State And Local Level Using Coronavirus Aid Money For Free College, Guaranteed Income

Published

on

State and local officials are taking full advantage of the millions of dollars they have received from CARES Act funding — before it reverts back to the federal government — by spending the money for many, many different kinds of liberal priorities, including free college, “Trunk or Treating,” or an experimental income program. The CARES Act has provided $139 billion for state and local governments. These payments have been used to fund a plethora of programs, including police budgets and utility assistance for struggling residents. And that is the sort of thing this money is supposed to go toward. Helping folks of all walks of life endure the hardships caused by the coronavirus and the subsequent shutdowns. However, liberals are using this money to support their own little pet projects and causes too. via Fox News: Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is spending millions on free college for more than 600,000 essential workers. Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell agreed to spend $629,000 to hire 15 community relations specialists. Democratic St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter recently announced a guaranteed income program for low-income families using $300,000 in CARES Act money but has received pushback from a fellow Democrat. Earlier in September, Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., wrote a letter to Carter expressing concern that the spending fell outside of federal guidelines and could be subject to recoupment by the U.S. Treasury. https://twitter.com/MayorCarter/status/1301936145585106944 It’s not at all surprising to see liberals take money that was supposed to be designated to help folks struggling in the wake of the pandemic closures for things they’ve always wanted to have the money to put in motion. What’s maddening is these same officials are already standing in line, hands out, begging for more money because there isn’t enough to actually help people in their communities because they misappropriated the…
