How To Explain Easter To Your Kids If You're Not Religious

For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised.

Good Friday is celebrated all over India by the Christian community, who traditionally go to churches and offer special prayers to Jesus Christ.

Of non-religious people, 9% believe in the resurrection.

Obviously nobody was there to see what actually happened.

Yet in 2016, some 90,000 people were slaughtered because they would not abandon their faith that the cross symbolises.

Almost a quarter of UK Christians do not believe Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead, a survey has claimed.

"The best method is to tell them the truth about the origins of Easter", she says.

It is so important, that we regulate the pattern of our lives around our annual Easter holidays. Two thousand subsequent years can not be explained, except by the reality of the resurrection. The Tomb is empty.

Jesus, the Pope said, brought a new hope into the world: like the seed he became tiny and fell to the earth.

Archbishop Freier said this was a real and lived experience.

I invite you to come and worship Christ this Easter at Taylor Creek Church: Good Friday service is at 7:00 PM, and our Sunday Easter Celebration begins at 10:15 AM.

The Word of God guarantees the believer's resurrection at the coming of Jesus Christ for His church at the rapture.

Nevertheless, the good news of Easter is about what Jesus was prepared to do for the whole human race. The resurrection rearranged hearts and minds, but it also rearranged atoms.

"He is alive and we rejoice in his resurrection, and that's why Easter eggs are symbolic of new life", Hermanus said.

The resurrection of Jesus is important for several reasons. I'm in the old Neale's Auction House at the top of the Mansfield Road and for over a hundred years this was the premier auction house in the East Midlands.

Uniting Church Canberra region presbytery co-chairs Vanessa Crimmins and John Williams said Easter was about finding new life in a grace-filled relationship with God. But it was also an event of changed atoms and of a changed dead body.

God's holiness demands holiness on our part (Leviticus 20:26), but with the pattern of sin started by our first parents Adam and Eve, nobody could ever meet God's standard of perfection.
