The Importance of The Resurrection

Awesome post.

Why is it so essential?

“Our old history ends with the cross; our new history begins with the resurrection.”
-Watchman Nee

During the easter week, many believers’ Facebook pages and Instagram accounts are full of quotes and statements proclaiming how Jesus is not dead, but alive (and of course this is very true). During the week, I was reading through Luke 22, and it occurred to me that contemporary Christian culture has somewhat missed how central the resurrection is to the Christian faith. It is not simply another Christian holiday, and it is not simply another eucharistic event. It is in the center of Christianity. The resurrection of Jesus has, in some measure, been taken-for-granted in western Christian culture.

Democrats, and lawyers, should be ashamed. They herein attempt to criminalize and thereby censor scientific dissent with this fascist move. And we all should be up in arms over this.

I believe the notion of human induced climate change is likely correct. I likewise believe that we need action now to address this likely fact. And I know to a 100% certainty that corporate interests do constantly seek to pervert good quality scientific research.

And, more importantly, and despite all the above, I also believe that this move by these mental midgets is a swing not only at free speech but at the fundamental driver of scientific innovation – that is the existence of vigorous debate particularly in opposition to a majority scientific consensus. The sin qua non of scientific innovation, without fail, in history, has been the overthrow of a majority position by a minority position. Over and over again a majority position falls to one that has previously been disfavored. These are apparently democrat politicians first and critically minded lawyers second – or maybe not at all. And these clowns want to deny the prime catalyst in science because, unlike everyone else in the history of the world, they’ve “got it all figured out.”

And, of course the same “sin” is prevalent in republican circles. I make no defense of them as they take similar positions designed to censor minority views.
