while I agree that easter is dusted under the rug like every other holiday, and while I agree that such a video is well done, I don't like the message that the love that will never be let go of is the love of mother to son. It seems that video wants to portray that part more than others. The point, instead, is Jesus being willingly lead to the slaugter house to die for my wrongdoing, your wrong doing. That is good friday. The point of Easter itself is the fact that Jesus did not stop at death, he layed down trump when he rose from the dead. That is the foundation of the entire faith of Christianity. Jesus conquered death, he rose to life. By faith in him, I MAY ALSO rise again to new life, IN CHRIST.

Well Dave I just don't understand how you can continually spout off about Christianity. Lets just set aside the debate of God and Jesus rising from the dead. How can you even consider something that would preach helping others, and giving of yourself. What the heck is wrong with you, don't you know that we have to be completely self absorbed with no compassion or regard for others. Can you imagine how sick of a world it would be if people lived like Christians. It would be unbearable to know you could count on others when you needed help. How sick would it be to not worry about your kids getting molested, somebody robbing you, or doing buisness without somebody screwing you.

Come on Dave take a good look at what your preaching and get your head screwed on straight. Go rob a seven eleven or rape an old lady tonight, do what your suppose to do.

Darwin would be proud act like the animal you where decended from.

you probably believe that's what atheists and agnostics do, too. so misunderstood. Yup, anybody who isn't Christian is a non-moral person who does all kind of bad things because they aren't scared of going to hell. Guess what, I am a good person and i don't rape and pillage because I have morals, no thanks to religion.

I think non-believers can be moral people, but the problem is that being a good person never got anyone to heaven, especially not christians.

But the good news is that Jesus didn't just die, there is more to the story. As a matter of fact, NO historian of that day refuted the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Thats not what I said at all. Are you saying that you try to follow a life style that is taught by Christians, You have values, your compassionate to others you actually give a shit. If you really do why haven't I ever seen a supportive post from you acknowleging the life style that Christians teach we should live is infact they way you try to live and is the way you would like to see people try to live.
I think your a closet Christian, And I'm not so down on the pillaging I come from a long line of, pillaging Christians Cossacks.
My point was how bad would this world be if everybody lived an everyday lifestyle that is taught by Christians.

Are you sure your name isn't Thomas.
How do you decide what to believe and not to believe of things that have not been proven to you.

No. Go get off topic somewhere else.

Here is some good prophesy for ya, before Christ was born:




1 Who believes what we've heard and seen? Who would have thought God's saving power would look like this?
2-6The servant grew up before God—a scrawny seedling,
a scrubby plant in a parched field.
There was nothing attractive about him,
nothing to cause us to take a second look.
He was looked down on and passed over,
a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand.
One look at him and people turned away.
We looked down on him, thought he was scum.
But the fact is, it was our pains he carried—
our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us.
We thought he brought it on himself,
that God was punishing him for his own failures.
But it was our sins that did that to him,
that ripped and tore and crushed him—our sins!
He took the punishment, and that made us whole.
Through his bruises we get healed.
We're all like sheep who've wandered off and gotten lost.
We've all done our own thing, gone our own way.
And God has piled all our sins, everything we've done wrong,
on him, on him.

7-9He was beaten, he was tortured,
but he didn't say a word.
Like a lamb taken to be slaughtered
and like a sheep being sheared,
he took it all in silence.
Justice miscarried, and he was led off—
and did anyone really know what was happening?
He died without a thought for his own welfare,
beaten bloody for the sins of my people.
They buried him with the wicked,
threw him in a grave with a rich man,
Even though he'd never hurt a soul
or said one word that wasn't true.

10Still, it's what God had in mind all along,
to crush him with pain.
The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin
so that he'd see life come from it—life, life, and more life.
And God's plan will deeply prosper through him.

11-12Out of that terrible travail of soul,
he'll see that it's worth it and be glad he did it.
Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant,
will make many "righteous ones,"
as he himself carries the burden of their sins.
Therefore I'll reward him extravagantly—
the best of everything, the highest honors—
Because he looked death in the face and didn't flinch,
because he embraced the company of the lowest.
He took on his own shoulders the sin of the many,
he took up the cause of all the black sheep.
