What if God really did create everything?
If he did, what if he did it for a purpose?
If he did, what if that purpose was so that he could have a special relationship with mankind?
If it was, what if mankind rebelled just like the Bible says they did, causing the suffering we see in the world today and destroying that special relationship?
If they did, what if God’s character did not permit him to just overlook that rebellion meaning we’d have to pay for that rebellion ourselves?
If it did, and if it does, what if the payment for that rebellion was far greater than we could ever pay, rendering the destroyed relationship eternally destroyed?
If it was, what if God decided to pay for that rebellion for us in the hopes of restoring that special relationship and bringing mankind back to him?
If he did, what if that’s why he sent his son to be born into this world (as celebrated by us this Christmas day) and to be the perfect sacrifice to pay for that rebellion because he valued that special relationship so?
If it is, what if we refuse that payment, choosing to pay for our rebellion ourselves, being unable and unwilling to do so, and remaining estranged from God?
If we do, what good is our celebration this Christmas day if that special relationship, for which we were created, is not restored?
