    Having read the article entitled “Have a Messy Christmas says the Archbishop of Canterbury” I am writing to correct the well-intentioned but error-filled article of the Archbishop.

    The Archbishop’s observations are honest, logical, and appear to be obvious. His ‘chaos’ theory appears to be referencing the facts that either the actual Inn was full; or the time a busy time; people on the move; the tax season; the census, the town was busy; all Inns were full; or the location / conditions of the Holy birth, etc.

    However there is no mystery or confusion surrounding the birth of Christ. A mystery is only a mystery to those whom it has not yet been revealed. So in the Spirit of Christmas, here’s an explanation as to why the Birth of Christ (and that’s what Christmas is really about) was the opposite of “chaos” and most certainly far from being “unplanned”.

    Why was there no room at the INN?

    The reason why there was no room at the Inn is, God did not want room at the Inn. God did not want His Holy Son born there amid drunkenness, sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery, idol worshipers, evil thoughts, etc. In short there was SIN in the INN and so it was not a fitting place for the birth of a Holy God. At that time, that was the stable! It would have been nothing for the creator of all things seen and unseen to provide the grandest palace adorned with Gold and Silver but it was not with gold and silver we were to be saved nor would the Lord condone mammon and greed.

    The humble stable with the animals that bore no sin was the cleanest place for our Saviour to be born.

    However had our Living God wanted, I don’t think there would have been any major problem on His part to provide a room at any inn of His choosing, at any time regardless of how many people were or were not coming for any census or event at that time.

    It was God’s wisdom and predestination alone that His Son Jesus Christ be born on ground that was Holy and without sin in the camp. (No ‘chaos’, no ‘unplanned’ events)

    We have an all powerful God where ALL things are possible and who knows ALL things past, present and future, and He had already made up His mind to have His Son born on ground made Holy by His Presence. God’s planning is ALWAYS perfect and He is a God of order not disorder.

    Wishing the Archbishop and all your readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
