This used to be the greeting of Christians 2000 years ago.
The word for it was Maranatha.
It was probably code for "I'm a Christian."

Like drawing a fish in the sand with your toe.

But it's all about the Risen.
If indeed He is risen,
He knows something about death and resurrection,
that we need to know.

Fortuneately He's not keeping it to Himself.
"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."
What was the joy set before Him?
He had a throne before he came here.
He didn't have you.

Happy Easter.

The love and power of The Christ lives within all our souls and there's nothing we can do about it. We should question, we should force science against faith, and in the end we should learn that they are different yet drive to the same cause. This is in no way a paradox. How could faith be without the presence of physical existence? One can not understand the other for the souls of man require both. Science glorifies Him as much as faith requires Him. There is no conflict. When I look to the stars at night I do not see G-d. I see his work. And that's some pretty impressive shit.
