I deny the Resurrection!



I ripped this off from another blog that I saw, hook line & sinker.

I certainly DO NOT deny the resurrection of Jesus. In fact, my entire life would be a complete joke if I did...and a pointless one, too. However, often times, the way I live my life, I might as well deny it. Because my own selfishness and ambition betrays me and the God who saved me.

This is all from Peter Rollin's blog. Like I said, I'm ripping it off because I am a lazy, lazy man...but he does make a point. So, just something to think about.



My Confession: I deny the Resurrection

"I am four days into my ‘Lessons’ tour and so far loving it. My time to date has been spent in Calvin College engaging in fascinating debates with Kevin Corcoran, Jason Clark, Jamie Smith, Lori Wilson and Michael Wittmer. Many subjects have been covered, but perhaps the most pertinent one revolved around the place and nature of belief in faith.

At one point in the proceedings someone asked if my theoretical position led me to denying the Resurrection of Christ. This question allowed me the opportunity to communicate clearly and concisely my thoughts on the subject, which I repeat here.

Without equivocation or hesitation I fully and completely admit that I deny the resurrection of Christ. This is something that anyone who knows me could tell you, and I am not afraid to say it publicly, no matter what some people may think…

I deny the resurrection of Christ every time I do not serve at the feet of the oppressed, each day that I turn my back on the poor; I deny the resurrection of Christ when I close my ears to the cries of the downtrodden and lend my support to an unjust and corrupt system.

However there are moments when I affirm that resurrection, few and far between as they are. I affirm it when I stand up for those who are forced to live on their knees, when I speak for those who have had their tongues torn out, when I cry for those who have no more tears left to shed."
