Debate:Does the Resurrection negate Gods Sacrifice of his only son?
Not at all. In fact the two go together... God's wrath being poured out on Jesus Christ, who was bearing our sin willingly. Then, conquering death, which was the last enemy to conquer, He rose bodily from the dead. If He was not risen, that means basically everyone in the New Testament, including Jesus Himself, was a liar. --Ymmotrojam 15:31, 31 March 2007 (EDT)
If he rose was resurrected from death what was the sacrifice.Rebiu 16:15, 31 March 2007 (EDT)
Only sons are sacrificed all the time and without the benefit of resurrection. What made this one so earth shattering.Rebiu 10:56, 2 April 2007 (EDT)
The difference is that this one had a message of salvation for humanity that nobody had ever considered before and his death gave the weight of ultimate conviction to that message.Rebiu 21:41, 2 April 2007 (EDT)
This has the sound of a "trick" question
Like: Lets see who answers "yes" and jump 'em!
This might sound like Roman Catholic bashing but I do believe this is the actual teaching of the RCC: Christ is sacrificed anew at each Mass. The Liturgy is called "The Sacrifice of the Mass." There are those who disagree with this POV citing Hebrews, (mainly), to repudiate this specific teaching. I'll get you chapter and verse if we actually need it. -- Crackertalk 16:23, 31 March 2007 (EDT)
- Looks like you were wrong as someone posted yes and they were not attacked. Perhaps this conspiracy would have played out if you had not spoiled the trap.Rebiu 21:39, 2 April 2007 (EDT)
On the contrary, Christ is not sacrificed anew at each Mass, he is sacrificed anew by each sinner when he or she sins. Bearing false witness is a sin. Christ's sacrifice is a single event in eternity, and it is presented to the Church Militant in time with each mass. In other words, the Eucharist is how man in linear time taps into and unites with the Calvary event. Teresita 09:40, 4 April 2007 (EDT)
