I WRITE in response to Julian R Powell’s comments on Mr and Mrs Aston’s article on Christmas and why Jesus was born.

Oh, Mr Julian R Powell, what a scoffer you are ridiculing their comments. I could come down to your level of sarcasm, but that wouldn’t be very Christ-like of me would it?

Why not join an Evangelical Church in Newport, where you will find Christ-like people who will interpret the Scriptures for you and give you a better understanding of why Christ came to Earth, etc, etc?
