New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 3, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas COUNTDOWN 352 DAYS New Braunfels Sesquicentenniai March March Inside Letters to the Sports An Easter message By Rev Robert F Keith Special to the HeraldZeltung Today Easter Sunday churches everywhere are filled to capacity Why Because on Easter Sunday people gather to celebrate the most important single event that has ever occurred on the face of the earth But some might ask what about our own age Discoveries and advances of science and medicine have extended life We have truly wiped some diseases from the face of the earth small pox for example And think about this King Solomon who lived 950 years before Christ had the same plumbing transporta tion and communication system as George Washington in the 18th cen tury Now in less than a single cen tury weve stopped traveling on horseback and have visited outer space We have buckets of moon seen Jupiter mars and Saturns rings up close and person al Its absolutely amazing yet along side the resurrection of Jesus Christ all those things grow pale For as hard as we try we do not have the power to breathe life into the dead The breath of life belongs to God atone and by the power of our Cre ator God Jesus was resurrected That part alone separates Chris tianity from all other world religions Of no other world religious leader has it been said He is Guadama Buddha founder of Bud dhism was duly cremated after his death Confucius was buried In the family plot No affirmation of resur rection ever surrounds them nor Is it proclaimed by their followers It was only Jesus who rose triumphant from the grave Of Him alone it Is said He is If it were not true that Jesus Christ rose from the dead then Christianity would collapse worldwide in a instant There would be no Christ Jan faith no Christian church and no need for one And as strange as It sounds the empty tomb alone may fall short of being sufficient proof of the resurrection The main evidence of Christs resurrection lies elsewhere The stronger evidence Is In the lives of those who saw the risen Jesus boldly proclaimed it and eventually died for the truth of it Look at Peter Peter after three years of walking beskia Jesus see Ing all that He had done did In the end deny Jesus and run for cover when the chips were down But after the Pentecost Peter stood before all of Israel and declared the Incredible truth about Jesus that He was risen and alive So convinced was Peter that we are told that he too suffered crucifixion head down because of his unswerving faith In the risen Lord Consider Paul Once a dreaded committed killer of Christians whose life was radically changed whan he met the risen Christ on the road to Paul then proclaim an apparition If so would he have been willing to be arrested for It Imprisoned for ttOr was It his fafth In the resurrected Christ that caused him to endure Why would Matthew be dragged to death by horses Why would Stephen be stoned to death Why would thousands of Christian believers go to their deaths because of their faith when all they had to do was to deny Jesus Christ and live For a He For a hoax I think not In the growth and existence of the church for nearly the contemporary proof becomes obvi ous when we see churches every where across the world filled on East er Sunday and when we realize that evi i today people are being per secuted and die for their faith in people whole churches clinging to a legacy handed to us across the ages by the likes of Peter and Paul and thousands of the faith ul whose name we cannot know Death has no victory over us because we are Easter people Alleluia Christ Is risen He Is risen ndeed alleullal Robert F Is Rector of St Johns Episcopal controversy at Smithson valley

small towns It happens Riddering said rape victims often are afraid to report assaults for fear of being stigmatized or they feel the case will never prosecuted The FBI estimates that one out of every
