A friend wrote me today about the number of people, 2 Billion plus who went to church today to hear the illogical story about a man named Jesus, whom it is claimed, rose from the dead about 2 thousand years ago and walked out of his tomb? At the Easter Vigil on Saturday night, stories about the six days of creation, the Passover in Egypt, the parting of the Red Sea and our legacy to these stories were read. I listened to the names of a plethora of Saints being read, as we sang while the newly baptized joined us in believing this illogical story.
“God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty”
I Corinthians 1:27
To those who would say the illogical cannot persuade them to believe otherwise; I would have to respond that, Cowboy Logic would say, “Half your troubles in life come from wanting your own way, and the other half comes from getting it”. Ain’t it so!
