We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer

Did They Really Say That?

?!?
His disciples believed Jesus to be dead while he was hidden in the sepulchre, whereas he was alive, demonstrating within the narrow tomb the power of Spirit to overrule mortal, material sense. ... Paul writes: “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the [seeming] death of His Son...”
Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p.44,45
Let’s see; the Bible says Jesus was dead in the tomb and Eddy says he was alive.  Then she added a word, in brackets, to Paul’s words to give credence to her teachings.  Well, if Christ did not die, then our sins never paid for.  What do you trust - the Word of God or the words of Mary Baker Eddy?  I trust the Word of God, and I’d suggest you do the same.

So let's see if I have this straight - the Romans, experts of crucifixion, were somehow fooled into thinking someone was dead, took him down and buried him in the tomb, then three days later, that man left a sealed tomb. Now with no food or water for three days after spending several hours hanging by his hands and getting a gash in his upper thigh, and the first thing he does is walk for several hours and the people he travelled with did not notice anything unusual.

I'm very curious about who believes that, simply because if that makes sense to you, you would have to be in incredible physical shape!

You have to understand Christian Science theology. Everything is an illusion, nothing is material. Hinduism wrapped in a "Christian" face.
