Living in post-Christian "culture war" America, evangelical Christians like me have become used to certain catch phrases this time of year, some of which are very well-meaning and not altogether untruthful, that sell like hot cakes in Christian bookstores and the like.
9 The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own,  and his own people  did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) 16 And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only God,  who is at the Father's side,  he has made him known.The world doesn't know who Christ is, but we who have received Him, who believe Him, who have beheld His glory must tell the world who He is and call them to repentance and faith in Him.
