here is an article, is religion the problem?, about a debate betwixt dinesh d'souza and Christopher Hitchens, a leading athiest.
you can read the article and watch a clip of the debate if you like. i'm not into this kind of thing because it usually just makes me wanna puke.
anyway . . . d'souza writes: for Christians it is not the death of Christ but the resurrection that is the central doctrine. as a catholic, it is my understanding that it is the death of Christ that makes our salvation a possibility. it is the death of Christ as the ultimate Sacrificial Lamb, not His resurrection into glory, that gives us hope.
am i wrong?
