    Happy Easter CA!

    Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter

    Here's some interesting quotes I found that fit the season...

    A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act. --Mahatma Gandhi

    I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him. –Napoleon

    As a child I received instruction both in the Bible and in the Talmud. I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene....No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus. His personality pulsates in every word. No myth is filled with such life. --Albert Einstein

    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 a 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

    God Bless...

    From "I Am a Japanese School Teacher"

    There was one [penpal] letter that really threw everyone for a loop, including the [Japanese] teacher. The American student was talking about his favorite holidays, and he wrote something to the extent of "My favorite holidays are Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, which is the resurrection of Jesus."

    Even the teacher was baffled by this, so they called me over to help. "Well, resurrection means when someone who's died comes back to life." I explained to the student. He nods in understanding. "Okay," he says, "now, who's this Jesus character?" (Christmas in Japan is all about the man in the big red suit.) "Well, Jesus was a man..." I start to say. Before I can even finish my sentence, the boy looks up and me and says "Oh! So, Jesus was a zombie then?"

    .................................................. ......Yes.


    HAPPY ZOMBIE JESUS DAY!!

    technically, "no".

    he was never bar mizvahed,
    so according to the jewish community, he is not jewish.
    though he always considered himself one.
    and im sure hitler did too.

    its why he came to the US,
    to escape the nazi's persecution.

    Happy Easter CA, from NZ.



    And now a random fact about Jesus...

    Jesus is capable of causing women to conceive through the sheer awesomeness of the Holy Spirit. Nonetheless he chose to impregnate Mary Magdalene using earthly means.... to show her that he doesn't just make the lame stand up!
