Praise be to God, or honor be to God. That is, the praise of redeeming man is due to God. The plan of redemption will bring glory to God, and is designed to express his glory. This it does by evincing his love to people, his mercy, his condescension, and his regard to the honor of his law and the stability of his own government. It is the highest expression of his love and mercy. Nowhere, so far as we can see, could his glory be more strikingly exhibited than in giving his only-begotten Son to die for people.

Could you explain your design? Just wondering.

The question of religion aside, I'm kinda curious about a design choice in the poster; three colours, with lines diverging from the word 'the' that separate the three colours of the text from each other.

Just thinking about the meaning of it, really, and whether or not I'm just imagining that there's a deeper meaning behind this particular design, since I imagine that there isn't judging from your other work.

God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit??
It probably doesn't mean anything but I'm glad you pointed that out, I didn't notice before.

Well, I suppose that makes sense for the coloured text, at least probably in the creator's head, but what about the lines? They're coloured too.

I also imagine that those three are, at least arguably, in equal prominence in Christianity, am I right? If that's so, then why does it feel like the three sections are unequal in area?

But at any rate, going out of that, I think the largest criticism I can point out personally is that the text that cites where the quote came from is quite dark, which might have been or not have been intentional.

Hm, I guess I didn't put that much thought into it all.

I'm gonna say to me no, they are not equal prominence but most people don't agree with me at all so whatever you want there.

Oh I didn't even see it. Ha ha ha .

Why not? The message is still positive in this verse, whether Christian or not.

baaa fine I'll follow (only for the fonts, I'm a sucker of those) and I didn't mean to sound rude I just don't want people to think or suggest I'm religious, its like people asking me my sexuality and country origin (which I'm still not convince on how people just assume I'm British or American)

like I said sorry for sounding rude (not having swell days of late)

Can you tell me how God has shown his "love" for us. As if love were even possible for him.

He gave us Christ to redeem us from our sins, so that whoever should come to believe in him wouldn't perish but live eternally with him in Heaven. <3

So... he killed his son for our burdens even though he can just do it himself? I mean God is all-powerful after all. Power over all. Why didn't he destroy hell instead? Sounds more logical to me.

(I apologize in advance for the long response ^^;)

The original intention of Hell was for Satan and his demons. Satan caused mankind to rebel against God, in the bible it is described that before we were saved we were 'children of Satan'. All of us before being saved by Christ are bound for hell. A lot of people can't get their heads around  the fact that the heart of mankind is actually quite evil. They think that God is cruel for sending us to hell. But think of it in this perspective: God is actually gracious for allowing sinners into heaven.

If you saw a glass of clean, cool water, and then saw someone drop just a drop of poison into the glass, would you want to drink it?
Likewise, Heaven is so insanely pure that God cannot risk it getting tainted by evil. The penalty for our sins, as trivial as it may seem, is unfortunately death. God, in his divine purity, cannot be in the presence of sin. Hell, in its essence, is the absence of God: The Bible says that everything good comes from God, so Hell is the opposite of all that is good. 

Sin's penalty is that blood needs to be shed. Who on earth is pure enough to qualify as a perfect sacrifice for mankind? That's why Christ needed to come down and do it.  :)

Thank you. It delighted my evening to see this verse.

Also, there is a typo in your title. It should be Luke 2:14 instead of Luke 2:12.
