This original artwork by Jeff Pettit is not the classic Crèche Nativity of St. Francis origin, but one based on the mystics mind’s eye view.
Primarily an image influenced by the Venerable Mary of Agreda, and Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1800) both who have mystical experiences of the blessed event.
If Christ is Divine then we must believe everything he said and commanded. The true meaning of freedom becomes conformity to him.
Jesus called himself the “Son of God” that is the same nature of God. Jesus called God his Father. In contrast people like Buddha said he was not God. Buddha, Confucius, Muhammad and other religious founders performed no miracles and did not rise from the dead. Buddhists do not believe Buddha was God nor do Muslims believe the Muhammad was God. Christians believe Jesus Christ is God.
