…the resurrection that is. Here is a quote for us.
The resurrection addresses those who insist on protection and security of the individual, institutions and country. Such persons set up mechanisms of defense along economic, racial and national lines¦ In sharp contrast, the life of the Spirit, with its hope in the resurrection, does not, indeed, cannot, dwell on the preservation of the flesh (personhood, institution and nations). Rather the corporate life of the Christian becomes one of risk. A Christian hospital can accept more welfare patients than economically advisable because it knows God’s love for the poor does not depend on its continued existence. Christians can call for total disarmament in the midst of a cold war because they know the future of the world does not depend on the survival of the nation. A Christian can risk his or her life because a Christian knows this life is not the end. – Graydon Snyder
nough said… It burns a little doesn’t it? I hope it does, because it burns me a bit. Let it burn, sit in it! Let the truth of the resurrection change everything!
