Enough of this term post-Christian. Nothing follows Christ because he is the end as the beginning. He can go out of a nation, as we are now witnessing, but he cannot go out of the world so long as the world endures. If we are paying attention, we cannot doubt the triumph of the Kingdom – not because of our own efforts to haul God down to us, but because the sovereign Lord, in his own time and at his own initiative, has condescended to come to us in Christmas. Ask the mountains whether God quits.
