Easter greetings

Easter greetings"On 20 April Christians in many parts of the world will celebrate the greatest festival of the church year, Easter. On this day the church proclaims its faith in God's triumph over our ultimate adversary, death. For Christians believe that Jesus, who uniquely brought divinity and humanity into contact, died, was buried and rose again to new life through miraculous resurrection.

 

Many others of course find such a notion completely preposterous, an unbelievable and incomprehensible doctrine, a fabrication concocted by the early church. Some Christians respond to this incredulity by seeking to assemble logical arguments and point to the so-called evidence that might persuade disbelievers of the truth of the resurrection. Such efforts are rarely successful.

 

For belief in God will only start when the limits of human reason have been reached. It is only in acknowledging the human impossibility of belief in the truly radical notion of a resurrected body that actual faith becomes possible. All faith must start from a position of unbelief. Read more
