Hi Christians! Why do you spend so little time on the life of Christ?
Not sure where this goes - feel free to place it properly.
It’s December 28.
I woke up this morning and my wife was already watching a Passion Week DVD. She just barely celebrated Christ’s birth and she’s already watching him get the crud beaten out of him.
Why is that? Christians spend one day (a few days more if one celebrates Advent) on Jesus’ birth (celebrating a whole bunch of harmless pagan rituals along the way). They celebrate one day for His resurrection (again celebrating a few more harmless pagan rituals along the way).
The rest of the year seems to be spent on the passion and his crucifixion. It’s as though they'’ve stopped using it as a time of remembrance of what He did for us and concentrate on glorying in the blood, gore and brutality. playing it over and over making sure they get the full picture.
Can’t theists remember His suffering without treating it like a cage fight?
If anyone was wondering why some people call Christianity a blood and death cult - this is why.
