The Tomb Is Empty, with thanks to Arun

I usually don’t preach religion.  I have my beliefs as I am sure you do.  But I came across an article that I think needs sharing.

If you don’t agree with it that is ok with me.  I am not here to convert anyone to my beliefs.  But I think Arun sums up Christianity pretty well.  I think today being Good Friday is the perfect time to share this with everyone.

Arun is a friend of mine that publishes a lot of PLR material.  If you don’t know what PLR is someone writes an article that they sell and others buy it and change it to their words and resell or give away.   PLR means Private Labeling Rights.

Here is the article he wrote, I hope he won’t mind me sharing it with you.

The Tomb Is Empty (Read… if you’re a Christian who has time)

It will be Easter on Sunday, and I think kids in the US will be busy hunting for colorful eggs that a bunny laid. That seems fun. All we have here are Cadbury Eggs, which I bought 5 bags of. I’ll probably give myself diabetes by Monday.

In many churches here, it’s called Resurrection Sunday. 

If you know the bible accounts well, you’d know that after Jesus was crucified and placed in the tomb, most of his disciples lost heart and hope and were wallowing in worry and misery.

It was a small group of women who went to the tomb a few days later and discovered it empty… and they ran back to tell the men that the tomb was empty and Jesus’ body had been taken.

This ’empty tomb’ is one of the MOST significant turning points in the Bible because it tells us one thing – Jesus is NOT a martyr who died for a cause.  He died as a substitute for us because the wages of sin is death. 

The bones of martyrs are still in their graves, but He came back to life.  That makes Christianity a ‘living’ religion. No other religion can claim this. 

You’ll see a ton of information circulating and claiming that science is real and God is just a fantasy. Atheists LOOOOVE to debate and prove their point that God doesn’t exist… and almost always, it’s about Christianity. No other religion faces as much unwarranted criticism.

These days, everybody is an intellectual with a ton of opinions and everyone is always right… but if you read the bible, you’d notice that Jesus never forced anyone to believe in him. The atheists, doubters, and naysayers were left to doubt and be negative. He didn’t argue with them.

There’s a reason for this – Jesus, in all his wisdom, wanted people to have a RELATIONSHIP with God. He knew that you could not force a relationship. All he wanted people to do was to love each other and to love him… because love is a choice.

That’s what Christianity is all about – your relationship with God and your choices. 

We’re never asked to debate anybody. We’re also not asked to judge or make others ‘see the light’… and yet, I see so many Christians saying horrible stuff in Facebook comments, judging what others do and feeling morally superior because they are Christians. 

Jumping around like an angry Easter bunny when no one even wronged them in the first place.

They’re against everything from homosexuality to other religions – and they make a fundamental error. They end up hating the people more than the actual sin. 

Quite frankly, I’ve noticed that some of the most judgemental people can be found in the church. This is a major flaw and it’s the root cause of why so many people turn away from the church.

As long as you do and say what the people at church want to see and hear, you’re fine. The moment you come in with tattoos or you say stuff that they don’t agree with, well… you’ll start getting the side looks where you know they’re judging you. Once again, Christian bunnies jumping to conclusions.

They won’t even give others the choice that Jesus gave them… to choose how to live your life. The truth of the matter is that He died on the cross for ALL our sins… ALL. Not just Christians, but ALL… that means the LGBT, the atheists, the ALL. 

And he came back for ALL too. Whether they choose to believe or not is up to them. Amidst all the noise and naysayers… all that matters is our walk. 

Most Christians can’t even walk the narrow path without faltering and stumbling, and most of the time it’s because they’re looking at others instead of watching their own footing.

It doesn’t matter what others do. If we can help them, we help. If they go another way, we let them be. There’s no need to impose our will or way on anyone and get bunny-hopping mad if others don’t agree with us. That’s not our fight, it’s His. 

And when all is said and done, it’s not about being like a bunny. It’s about being like The Lamb. 

Have a Happy Easter, and may the resurrected King resurrect you
All The Best,
Arun

I wish each of you a Happy Easter, even if all you believe in is the Easter Bunny that is ok with me.   I’ll see you next week I am working on a good article for you.

All my best to you faithful readers,
