Well Happy Easter everyone. 1/3 of the way through the year already, almost time to start putting up the Christmas decorations…
Its also the time of year to remember that two thousand years ago (give or take a few) the human race nailed a man to a cross for suggesting it would be better if people were nicer to each other (Ref. Douglas Adams). Humanity was kind of a jerk back them. Whether you are like me and believe in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, or if you are not a fan of organised religion (in fairness organised religion and Jesus did not exactly see eye-to-eye back then anyway, hence, cross) I hope we can all agree that nailing people to bits of wood, even metaphorical ones, just because of what they believe or who they is not the right way to go.
Sadly the truth is that humanity is still kind of a jerk and even though the Roman crucifixion system has gone (now we have YouTube comments), the fear and hatred still remains. The only hope for humanity is to reduce its jerkiness on an individual basis. If you are Christian remember the sacrifice that was made for us and the forgiveness that was offered even as we nailed Him up. Let that life be an example to you. If you are not a Christian then remember what that story represents; unconditional forgiveness to those who have wronged you and love for everyone.
Peace and love and spaceships everyone
Romans 5:8 ‘But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’
How many people who hate you have you died for today?
