Greg reflects on the Christmas story, Christmas cards, and Christmas carols, then he answers questions about engaging a post-Christian culture, how free will fits into Romans 9:14–23, a struggle with spiritual numbness, and whether people are in Hell by choice and how that can be reconciled with Revelation 5:13.
