Easter...More than bunnies and eggs

This is the very day to reflect on a reality that everyone of us faces…our mortality….One doesn’t have to go vey deep in their reflection because its starkness
meets us in the news media on a daily…if not hourly basis…Art comprises this reality as does literature. The immediate question is begged in inquiry and as a rhetorical bid for truth…If we do not accept the message found in Scriptures….what then shall we resort to and what basis can we accept its objective validity. Can reincarnation as speculated by mysticism…..to what end and resolution? Should you return a thousand lifetimes…..would you perfect the ‘soul’ that is intrinsic to each and ev’ry lifeform whether it be human or bovine ….If you are not ‘fortunate’ to be revered as some divine entity in the confines of India, would you be as the ‘Chick filet logo’ bidding for humans to eat poultry vice beef steak…Regardless what ecumenical madness what attempt to placate…..there is this truth…not all roads lead to ‘heaven’. They are antithetical of the others in nature and proposition. Only one can supply absoluteness and veracity…Do your ‘homework’…..investigate the belief system in each ‘religion’ and philosophy….be careful what you choose as the one you will ‘live’ your life by….what you may choose may be as toxic as cobra venom or a black mamba….

Consider each as like unto the various drinking vessels displayed in the movie, Indiana Jones, TheLast Crusade…one vessel and ONLY THAT VESSEL pours out “LIFE”….There was a ‘easter’ morn that is like none before….Consider it before you go blindly in search of another…..Did Jesus rise from the dead? As Paul urged his readers and listeners in that Corinthian household of faith….“If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is without foundation….we are found to be false witnesses about God, beacuse we have testified about God that He raised up Christ….if Christ has not been raised…your (belief system) is worthless and we are prey to the winds of merciless torment. There would thus be no remedy for our mortality …nothing to give hope or comfort….Christianity would be a fool’s faith and you would be as well off holding onto the tenants of any ‘religion’ ….But wait there’s more… BUT NOW CHRIST has been raised from the dead…just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive….read on…there is a marvelous resolution of which it is for us to be a participant or not……’Choose wisely…..that you may hear the immortal words…Truly, You have chosen wisely…Enter into My Presence”
