It may come as a surprise to you…that the doctrine of the Incarnation, which is what we really celebrate at Christmas… was once occasioned a significant controversy in the Church.
Today the Incarnation seems about as scandalous as peanut butter!
But in the fourth and fifth centuries, it was an issue that divided many Christians!
Why? Because the incarnation is the understanding…the doctrine…God had come to earth to live as a human!
