God’s Own Fool

Is the Resurrection Real?

It had better be real.
As real as the contractions that ripped new life from my body.
As real as the rattle that strangled life out of his.
I’ve no use for a spiritual resurrection.
If Hope
for the drowned, damaged, disfigured, disowned,
is emotional ease,
if the pain of flesh and bones
is answered with mystical comfort,
if Guns are stronger than god,
then count me out.
But tell me that Death Loses,
tell me that Life Prevails,
and not in the abstract,
but in pulsing blood, flowing tears, thumping heart,
then the Resurrection
is Hope
for us all.

Kara Root

A virgin birth, an actual death, a bodily resurrection. Either Christ was a madman liar who deserves to be laughed off of history’s stage or he was exactly who he said he was, which is profound. Today, those of us who follow Him celebrate. Happy Easter.
