Holy Week

As most people know, last week was Holy Week. The week that is the most importatant in Christian Faith. Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter are all part of Holy Week and to most Christians it is the time when they are the most grateful for Christ’s sacrifice. However, to some people Easter is about family dinners.
One of the greatest things that Satan has ever accomplished is replacing one idea of what a holiday is about with a wholesome “alternate” meaning for that holiday. Christmas is about giving gifts to others, Easter is about the Easter Bunny giving gifts to little kids, and Good Friday is this enigmatic holiday that allows most government businesses to close eventhough most people don’t even know what the meaning behind it is. It’s really sad.
Kristen and I went to see The Passion of the Christ again yesterday and enjoyed it more than we did the first time we saw it. I was able to look past the suffering and focus more on the underlying story. I’m very happy to see if performing as well as it has been at the box office, I believe that this is a truly amazing evangelical tool.
Why evangelize? I know, today the popular thing is to be completely accepting of everyone’s religion. Most people think that Christians are arrogant because they think that their way is the only way and that everyone else is wrong. Let me put it this way and maybe you’ll understand our point of view:
You’ve seen the anti-drug commercials with the teen drowning while their friend stands their watching, right? Well, if you’re a Christian, you believe that anyone that doesn’t know Christ is drowning and part of what you’re supposed to do as a Christian (as commanded by the Bible) is spread the word of Jesus Christ and keep these people from drowning. So, it is completely impossible to be a Christian AND be completely accepting of other people’s beliefs. It’s not that we’re intollerant, it’s just that we don’t want everyone to end up making an eternal mistake. It’s about love. Honestly.
If you don’t agree with me, that’s your choice. My duty is to tell it to you and allow God to work on your heart. I won’t argue, and I won’t fight. I’ll simply tell you the truth and allow you to do with it what you want.
