GOOD FRIDAY: MORE THAN NOSTALGIA AND BAD THEOLOGY
by Ted Schmidt
If the world hates you, know that it has already hated me before you. If they have persecuted me, then they will also persecute you.
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed but not driven to despair; persecuted but not forsaken; struck down but not destroyed.
2 Cor. 4:8 ff
Whoever hears the message of the crucifixion of Christ in such a way that the cry of the crucified has become inaudible in it, hears not the Gospel but rather a myth.
