Dirty Diapers, Colic, Acne, and Immanuel

Average Rating: Not rated [see ratings/reviews]

Does the doctrine of the Incarnation blow your mind? According to Ken Langley's sermon—"When God Came to the BBC"—the idea that God could genuinely become a human being was just too much for people. Langley asks, "If God wanted to become human, that's a big if, then why not skip infancy with its dirty diapers and colic? Why not skip adolescence with its acne and peer pressure?" But God didn't skip those stages; he fully embraced our fallen humanity. Langley's sermon contains profound doctrine and practical applications all wrapped in a fascinating story from history.
