It’s the Christmas season, when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus. But not everyone wants to hear this message, says Sammy Tippit of Sammy Tippit Ministries.

Tippit recently lost the ability to promote several of his videos to a larger audience on Facebook after teaching about the incarnation. “When we talk about anything else, we don’t get a lot of flak. And the whole Christmas message is about God in human flesh. I don’t know for sure (because Facebook won’t tell you) but it appears that because I’m proclaiming Jesus is God in human flesh, they have gotten complaints. And they have disabled our ability to boost any videos.” See the videos on Sammy Tippit’s Facebook page here.

Tippit explains why this Christian doctrine often causes more angst than any other. “People like Jesus as a great teacher, a great moral leader, a good man. But to say that He’s God, it puts Him in a category all its own.” Several Christian doctrines, such as monotheism and the resurrection of the dead, appear in other religions as well. But the idea of God taking on human flesh is found in no other world religion.
