Columbia, SC — I find Neal Jones line of thinking irrational to say the least ( “The Christmas story: Neither fact nor fiction,” Dec. 19). He admires Jesus but does not believe in the virgin birth. If Christ were not virgin born, then he could not be the son of God.
Christ stated: “I am the living water,” and “I am the bread of life” and “I am the light of the world.” He repeatedly referred to himself as the “I AM,” which the Old Testament tells us is the name of God. If he was not the son of God, then these are the statements of an egomaniac or a mental patient. Who would admire someone like that?
The column reminded me of I Corinthians 1:20: “Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?”
