Three Insights into the Glorious Day of Easter

Here are some blessed insights into Easter Sunday:

“When I survey the wondrous Cross,

On which the Prince of Glory died,

My richest gain I count but loss,

And pour contempt on all my pride.” – Isaac Watts

“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” – C. S. Lewis

 

“I still can’t help wondering how we can explain away what to me is the greatest miracle of all and which is recorded in history. No one denies there was such a man, that he lived and that he was put to death by crucifixion. Where … is the miracle I spoke of? Well consider this and let your imagination translate the story into our own time—possibly to your own home town. A young man whose father is a carpenter grows up working in his father’s shop. One day he puts down his tools and walks out of his father’s shop. He starts preaching on street corners and in the nearby countryside, walking from place to place, preaching all the while, even though he is not an ordained minister. He never gets farther than an area perhaps 100 miles wide at the most. He does this for three years. Then he is arrested, tried and convicted. There is no court of appeal, so he is executed at age 33 along with two common thieves. Those in charge of his execution roll dice to see who gets his clothing—the only possessions he has. His family cannot afford a burial place for him so he is interred in a borrowed tomb. End of story? No, this uneducated, property-less young man has, for 2,000 years, had a greater effect on the world than all the rulers, kings, emperors; all the conquerors, generals and admirals, all the scholars, scientists and philosophers who have ever lived—all of them put together. How do we explain that—unless He really was what He said He was?” – Ronald Reagan

  1. Ronald Reagan had it right. He definitely was a Christian. No one can say those words who doesn’t believe it. Oh, where is Reagan when we need him? Pray, pray, pray for a new President who, at least, follows and obeys the Constitution. And it would even be better if he is a Bible-believing disciple of Jesus’.

    1. Ka;¨aneseさんpdf届きましãgŸ。ありがとうございます。これを見てはっきりわかることは&#12289n『鬱陵郡誌』の編者は「無実」であるということです。南面の地名ãe北面の地名が段落分けして記述されていて、北面地名と同じ行から続いて(管轄)竹島 石島と書かれています。これでは誰が読んでも石島が北面所属であるとしか理解できません。GTOMR さんI have a question about Imperial Edict 41.article 3.第三條 開國五百四年八月十六日官報中 官廳事項欄內 鬱陵島以下十九字 刪去ê³  開國五百五年勅令第三十六號第五條江原道二十六郡의 å…­å­— 七字로 改正ê³  安峽郡下에 鬱島郡三字 添入 事.what kind of å­—?字はそのまま「å­—」という意味ではないでしょうか。「鬱陵島以下十九字 刪去」は「鬱」から続いて十九番目までの文字を削除するという意味で、「安峽郡下에 鬱島郡三字 添入」は「安峽郡」の次に「鬱」「島」「郡」の三文字を加えるという意味だと思います。
