Dan Proft: The Slaughter of Christian Innocents

“Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stroke far-right anger in the West.”

That was the headline in the Washington Post the day after the world learned the Easter Sunday church bombers were radical Islamist terrorists.

It seems the Post isn’t sure if Christianity is under attack. But it is sure only the “far-right” is upset about the massacre of “Easter worshippers,” as they term them.

Historically, the Left has used perceived persecution to accrue power—so they are reticent to have Christians benefit from actual persecution, thus they use the label “Easter worshippers”—as if it’s a spring festival of sorts.

This is how identity politics works and it is at work in the coverage of the slaughter of Christian innocents.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and leading Democrats all used “Easter worshippers” language, generating much-deserved pushback.

No atrocity is so great as to prevent the Left’s pursuit of power.

Albert Mohler: The Promise Of Easter

This Sunday is Easter, a great celebration day for Christians. The Church bears a mandate to proclaim the truth that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. The resurrected Lord gave the Church a sacred commission to take the gospel—the message of Christ’s victory over sin and death—throughout the world.

So, as the Church gathers to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Christians look back in thankfulness to that empty tomb and forward to the fulfillment of Christ’s purposes in us. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the promise of our resurrection from the dead, and of Christ’s total victory over sin and death.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is at the very center of the Christian gospel. The empty tomb is full of power.

Happy Easter to all. May the joy of the resurrection be yours.

Michael Medved: “The Choosing People” of Passover

Opioid

As Jewish people around the world celebrate Passover, it’s worth recalling an often-ignored aspect of the Exodus story. The Midrash, a nearly-2,000-year-old collection of elucidations of the Biblical text, suggests most of the Hebrew slaves, despite the miracles around them, felt too fearful to follow Moses out of Egypt. In this sense, “the people of choice” described in the Bible were as much a choosing people as a chosen people. Even at the Red Sea, Midrashic sources say that God only split the sea once the Jewish people took the first courageous steps into the water. In this sense, and in this season, God can still perform miracles but we must partner with Him in the process.

This is also true for the Easter message of salvation and redemption, isn’t it? Liberation and salvation are gifts from God. But it’s up to human beings to take the first steps.
