“Was Easter Borrowed from a Pagan Holiday?”

“Why the Early Church Finally Rejected Premillennialism”

These early [church] critics believed that chiliasm [premillennialism] represented an approach to biblical religion that was sub-Christian, essentially failing to reckon with the full redemptive implications of the coming of Jesus of Nazareth as Messiah. They saw it as an under-realized, a not-fully-Christian, eschatology.

Jesus the Extreme Street Preacher

“Think positively, because I'm here to talk with you and walk with you along life's narrow way. Give me all your tears of sadness and all your years of pain, and you’ll enter into life in my name. By being strong-willed, you will be able to overcome the obstacles of a long and winding, dry and hot desert road and arrive at your blessed assurance. Now you can testify that I'm alive because I live within your heart. Then, because I'm a loving and healing Bro, you can be happy and blest, praising your Savior all the day long."
