A cult leader in Beslan, Russia, is offering to ressurect the victims of last year’s hostage siege for money. Read story. As can be imagined, a public outcry has followed, even though several mothers allegdly believed the guy. Not that I blame them, their grief must be horrible, and any sort of consolation must be welcome.
Obviously from a Christian viewpoint, this is exactly the sort of madness Jesus warned us about in Matthew 24. I’m more worried, though, about the media coverage in general. Suddenly some lunatic in Russia is talking about resurrecting people from the dead – people must be out of their mind to believe such superstition. Nobody believes in resurrection anymore.
I’m no crazy Russian, but I do believe that one day the dead shall arise and we’ll all be together with the Lord. I’m not charging money for it, though, and neither is He. Maybe that’s why that doesn’t get the same sort of media coverage. Old news, anyone?
