Easter 2022: Christ's Resurrection

by Douglas V. Gibbs

As we approached this year's Easter Celebration a New York Times editorial proclaimed it is time to get rid of God.  The enemies of the United States Constitution and your Natural Rights denies the existence of God, and the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  

Jesus Christ is the only religious figure in history to conquer death, and that resurrection is founded on historical facts, eyewitness accounts, and the personal conviction of each person who comes to know Jesus.

The existence of Jesus is confirmed by both the Holy Bible, and non-biblical writings.  The disciples who followed Jesus all were convinced He was crucified and that He rose from the dead.  Eyewitness accounts describe in detail His arrest, that He was beaten, and that He was crucified on a hill with two other men.  He was confirmed dead when a spear was thrust into His side.  He was wrapped in cloth, and sealed inside a tomb with a heavy stone across the entrance.  Sixteen Roman Soldiers were charged with guarding the tomb.  Even under heavy persecution not a single disciple or witness changed their story.  They also testified that He appeared to them after His death, a claim they also never turned away from, despite all of the efforts by those who persecuted them to get them to.  Afterward, Paul, a sworn enemy of Christians who carried pride in his citizenship as a wealthy and powerful Roman and was proud of his merciless persecution of Christians suddenly changed his mind and became a Christian after claiming to see Jesus after He had risen.  Jesus' skeptical half-brother James also shed his doubt and became a follower of Christ.  

The most striking evidence of all was that the tomb that held the body of Jesus was empty.  

Free because of The Spirit

What is freedom?  What is America Liberty?  What is free will?

To do as we please?


The universe has laws of physics and laws of biology, and so on and so forth.  Everything natural follows these laws.  If ever something goes outside those laws the consequences are catastrophic.  It rarely happens, but sometimes an orbiting body gets knocked off its trajectory, or a flaw in the creation of a lifeform causes a deformity, and since the body is not following the law of orbit or of life that always works properly in the grand scheme of things the result of the deviation is to skitter off course and more often than not ultimately die in the process.

Things, objects, and bodies of rock or microorganisms don't have the ability to reason like human beings, and therefore they typically don't go outside the laws that nature has in place.  The natural order of things follows a certain path, and once we learn about what that part of nature demands, it is self-evident to us how it is supposed to be.  We don't argue that the planet ought to be able to orbit in a different manner, or that a different structure of atoms or molecules ought to be allowed for the organisms to be able to portray their rebellious side, and we don't expect a rock to suddenly become liquid and we don't look at the ocean and decide it's actually a mountain because it's wrong for us to decide what its identity really is by the way it was formed.
