A very simple and very short Christmas quiz:

Christmas is about Jesus coming to save people from their . . .
A) winter boredom.
B) needing a reason to shop.
C) sins.
D) needing a cute story to entertain their kids.

Answer:  The reason for the season is “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”  (Matthew 1:21)

Another question:

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
