The Resurrection and Easter

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the pivotal, most essential point of Christianity. Easter could be the celebration of it, but not always. When I’ve been going door to door, I’ve seen far more Easter bunnies and eggs than I have anything about Jesus Christ. People decorate their houses with these symbols of a secular version of this holiday to remove themselves from the real truths. More and more people want to separate themselves from these truths, especially because of the authority that they bring. The authority is seen in the sermon by Peter on the Day of Pentecost. Those people knew Jesus had lived, died, was buried, rose again, had ascended into heaven, and would be returning some day as judge. Many of the people hearing it that day, 3,000 of them, believed that message. They knew in fact Jesus was Who He said He was and that they were in trouble. The right response was repentance. They did repent. The people who cover over the resurrection, ignore it, or treat it with a kind of indifference, they are not repentant. They will not acknowledge to a right degree because they don’t want to consider a Jesus, who might judge them. They will have to acquiesce to His authority because of this truth and submit to Him. That means they won’t be doing what they want to do. There are more truths of the resurrection. It means Jesus is God and that He has power over death. With that power, Jesus can provide us resurrection if we come to Him on His terms. It also means He’s alive and interceding for us.

Christian Patriotism?

How does being a patriotic American relate to the Bible and church? Is this even biblical? It’s difficult to make the entire argument in this small space, but I believe we can be patriotic as a chur
