Good Friday

"The French positivist philosopher Auguste Comte once told Thomas Carlyle that he planned to start a new religion to replace Christianity. 'Very good,' replied Carlyle. 'All you have to do is be crucified, rise the third day, and get the world to believe you are still alive. Then your new religion will have a chance.'"

Good Friday is here. We are reminded that the Crucifixion of Jesus led to the hope of all mankind; the ability to overcome death and live forever with the Living God. We celebrate a terrible day which led to the greatest of days; Easter Sunday.
