Today, "Good Friday," commemorates the assassination of Jesus Christ.
This is a central fact for humanity. The world's only sinless human being, who did no evil and worked to heal the sick, was murdered by the two institutions who claim (above all other institutions) to be the benefactors of the human race.
The religious leaders of Jesus' day held a kangaroo court in the middle of the night to satisfy their legalistic religious requirments, passing a sentence of "blasphemer" on Jesus. Then these "holy men" solicited the strong arm of the State to put Jesus to death, on the grounds that Jesus spoke "against Caesar," and anyone who failed to condemn Jesus was no friend of Caesar (John 19:12).
Was this murderous church-state conspiracy an aberration, or is it the very nature of the "archist" to oppose God and that which is truly holy and peaceful?
Good Friday exposes the biggest lie in the history of the human race.
