The Empty Tomb - An Easter Sunday Sermon
Updated: Mar 5, 2021
“Here’s a thought: What if the greatest force of evil in our world is not Isis, what if it’s it is not fundamentalist Islam, what it's not even homophobic evangelical Christianity? What if the greatest force of evil in our world is the capacity of human beings to deceive themselves into believing that truth is a lie and that a lie has become truth?What if the greatest force of evil in our world is how easily we exchange the truth of God for a lie, worshipping and serving the creature rather than the creator. (Rom. 1.25)
“What I mean by this is that we idolize our fears, and we allow them to control our actions, and in so doing we make ourselves subservient to our own creation. We convince ourselves that the tomb contains terrors, and then we construct our lives around that lie. We live the lie of fear into being, and we live out that fear in our thoughts and our actions.”
