When Jesus was born it heralded the arrival of the person of God ... God with us. Religion until then had been the institutional mediator between God and Man. Jesus said, "no more, I will write my law on your hearts, I will put my spirit in you, anyone who simply believes will not perish".
Unfortunately we have continued to be blind to this message: the institutional expression of the worlds churches continues to confuse people outside the faith, preventing them from seeing Jesus. Just look at one secular portrayal here (link) - does that offend you? It's an honest comment by someone outside the church ... the sort of person who'll enter our doors once or twice a year.
Jesus lived 1 Corinthians 9:18-23 (link). Jesus brought a fresh expression (link) to those on the outside of religion, Jesus bypassed religion. Let's freshly express ourselves because:
"Christmas: its the announcement of the end of religion"
Now go out and really celebrate Christmas ... Go overboard
