Merry Christmas

There is one God, Yahweh, who created the world good and rules all things.  Violence and evil are not written into the fabric of creation but are due to sin and His righteous judgment on sin, and therefore there is hope of redemption from evil.  Ultimate reality is not a gaggle of gods, nor an autocrat, nor an impersonal Fate.  Rather, ultimate reality is Three Persons in an eternal communion of love.  Above us is a God who is love, whose love overflows in creating a world He did not need and in redeeming a world that had turned from Him.  Heaven is not a battlefield or a prison; it is a dance hall filled with song.  And, one day, earth will join in.
