How should the incarnation shape our view of the world? Pastor Nate Harlan reminds us that God and man are reconciled in Christ, and thus secularism has no power to separate Christ from the world.
What does it mean that Christ is present with us, his people? The incarnation demonstrates that we desperately need God to be with us. Pastor Nate Harlan preaches on the gift of Christ to his people.
The celebration of Christmas, when done for Christ’s glory and honor, is actually a blow against secularism, the idol of our age which says God and man should be kept in separate categories. As pastor Nate Harlan says, “Merry Christmas” is a battle cry.
The teaching of the Incarnation, that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, is viciously attacked today. This is an old lie; the Apostle John himself also faced this lie among the heretical Gnostics of his era. But as Pastor Nate Harlan preaches on 1 John 2:18–23, we discover that if the Incarnation is false, then Christianity collapses. We must hold onto this truth against any “false christs” who would claim otherwise.
