Good News or Fake News

So often when we listen or watch the news it is difficult to determine what is truth and what is fake news
This Easter we want to share the truth that Jesus Christ, the Son of God died on the cross for our sin. Jesus took the punishment that we deserve for the wrong in our lives. Now that is good news for you and me because it is true
But the best news of all is that Jesus rose from the dead 3 days after he was crucified, because that gives us a hope and a future in this life and beyond which is amazing
However, some people say the resurrection was false, that it was and is fake news, that:

  • Jesus didn’t really die, he fainted came around in the tomb, pushed a 2 tonne stone over, and saw off 4 Roman guards. Really!
  • The disciples stole the body and pretended Jesus was alive. Would you die for a lie? Of course not!
  • Jesus didn’t really come back from the dead. The disciples saw a ghost or they hallucinated. However, Jesus ate food, cooked breakfast and appeared to lots of people, even 500 together on one occasion. Ghost doesn’t do that, and 500 people hallucinated simultaneously? Never, ever happened ever!

I could go on, but whichever way you come at the resurrection it is good news, any attempt to explain it away is fake news, but don’t just take my word for it. Why not come along on Easter Sunday Morning 10.30am, and see and hear for yourself.
In a world where much is false, especially news, please come and experience the Good News that is for all people, that Jesus Christ, the Son of God died, rose, and is alive forevermore.
We would love to see you. You would be very welcome
