Home of the Bechtloff, your friendly neighborhood nerdy misanthropic libertarian sinner saved by grace. With a cold and broken hallelujah

The tomb is empty.
Happy Easter to all! People sometimes ask me why I'm a Christian. When a man walks out of the grave, it's time to pay him some attention. The events of Easter are some of the most verifiable in all of antiquity. Most all of the skeptics explanations for it are borderline if not outright absurd. It was a hoax, Jesus didn't die he just fainted, Jesus was an alien.
Yeah I've actually heard that last one on more than one occasion. Anything but he was who he said he was. Because after all, if he was then you are accountable to him. But if he was just a conman, a myth, or Lord Xenu, then he can be ignored. I for one believe he was who he said he was. And so I give thanks on this Easter because he paid a debt he did not owe because we owed a debt we could not pay. So happy Easter to all.
