We have assembled a number of options on this page.  Before we give you the wrong idea, though, we need to tell you what we mean by "options."  Well, tell you what, let's just see what the Bible says.



“And there is salvation in no one else; 

for there is no other name under heaven 

that has been given among men

You are probably familiar with the announcement of the Christmas angel to the shepherds, "Behold I bring you good news . . ."  The coming of Jesus Christ was, indeed, good news.  It still is, but if we are going to incorporate that good news into our lives, we first have to work through some bad news.  Click on the image to the right.  The video presentation will take about five minutes.
