24 Ideas For Building
An Easter Message
Easter is the most important holiday in the Christian calendar. It celebrates the resurrection from the dead of Jesus, three days after he was executed. The Easter story is at the heart of Christianity. - BBC News - London England
Why is the Easter message of paramount importance?
In a word - doubt.
Without the resurrection, our Christian faith would be just hopeful thinking, no better than secular philosophies and fanatical religions.
In fact, the seventeenth-century philosopher John Locke, some of whose ideas were incorporated into the Declaration of Independence, wrote, "Our Saviour's resurrection is truly of great importance in Christianity, so great that His being or not being the Messiah stands or falls with it."
The Apostle Paul's View on Easter...
Paul understood that without Christ’s resurrection, our salavation couldn’t be possible
(1 Corinthians 15). He also believed a person could not be saved without believing in Christ’s resurrection: “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved” (Romans 10:9)
