Some of Jesus’ relatives were Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Boaz, Jesse, King David, and Solomon are also in Christ’s earthly family. Hezekiah, Josiah, and Jacob, the father of Joseph, are his family too.

When the wise men had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there till I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” And he rose and took the child and his mother by night, and departed to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod.

This young man took exception, declaring there was no God, and furthermore stating that he certainly did not have hunger for a relationship with anything that could be defined as God.

In an age where man is elevated to being his own god, religion is seen as a sort of enslavement. Up with self! Down with guilt!
