The birth we celebrate in one week could have been a great tragedy for mankind. Our ancestors killed God's Son physically and we battle Him spiritually. It would be perfectly fair for God to take revenge.
The same is true concerning another murder. Two decades ago Tim Streett was 15 and living in a northern suburb of Indianapolis. As he and his dad were shoveling snow, young men from the inner city drove up. They demanded money from the white father and son. They fatally shot the father in front of the son's eyes.
