If Jesus rose, it means a few things.

  • It means if you really hate and are tired of hatred, thievery, jealousy, rape, murder, injustice and hurt, any of it that you do won't be held against you.
  • It means that there is a future in which the Arabs and the Jews, the Democrats and the Republicans, the feminists and the gun owners will love each other in harmony.
  • It means that death is not the end, and that there is an afterlife. A beautiful, harmonious afterlife.
  • It means that in that afterlife every terrible suffering and injustice that has ever existed will be utterly destroyed and there will be no more tears.

And there are those who think us stupid to dream of such a thing.
