John 11:1-37 What Makes Christianity Different From Every Religion?

Death is an enemy not a path to a better life; Jesus hates death, orthodoxy glorifies it; The dead aren’t alive; Resurrection is the Christian hope, not death; Jesus said, “Lazarus come forth”, not “Lazarus, come down from heaven in your spirit form and re-inhabit your body”; It’s not pagan to visit a cemetery or weep for those who died; Jesus has empathy even today; Why did Jesus snort like a horse and weep?

Facebook is nice, but in person is better. We live in a day where we have easy communication with Facebook, Twitter, Texting and the like. But with all these methods of instant communication we lack real communication. So much of the communication through these modern means are superficial, combative, or destructive. These tools have not improved our ability to discuss and communicate effectively and patiently, just the opposite. Too often these methods of communication are used to AVOID real communication with others under the guise of communicating – in other words, they are convenient excuses to avoid people!

Here’s a chance to get out from hiding from behind the keyboard and enjoy the presence of your brethren:

NORTHEAST OHIO CONFERENCE

Come out from the technological wilderness and enjoy the personal presence of your brethren. Paul said, “I long to see YOU…” not digital images of you.
