Can I just remind people why we are celebrating Easter see below? It seems people like me who believe in Christianity are ridiculed for our belief in favour of Secularism and Islam. Yet Christians are the most persecuted group in the World many dying for their faith. The secularists and Muslims continue to say less people are attending Church on a regular basis that may be true I am not a regular Churchgoer but I still believe which is the important thing. In the past secularists would laugh at me and say “Martin and his Invisible friend” but what they did not realise was that is actually how I felt I believe that the Lord is my invisible friend. So time to be proud to be a Christian and to be Proud to live in a Christian Country
Christians believe, according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter.
Through his death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus purchasing for all who believe in him, eternal life in Christ Jesus.
