Do we need a material body to sense spiritual power? How do we know supreme intelligence, real intelligence, not intellect? Is there something like divine energy? Does man live because Life lives and not the other way round? Is Love continuous?
The timeless Easter message gives answers, solid, good answers. And really good questions. For all time to come. Here is food for thought from Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 43/44):
"The final demonstration of the truth which Jesus taught, and for which he was crucified, opened a new era for the world. (...)
Human law had condemned him, but he was demonstrating divine Science. Out of reach of the barbarity of his enemies, he was acting under spiritual law in defiance of matter and mortality, and that spiritual law sustained him. The divine must overcome the human at every point. (...)
Could it be called supernatural for the God of nature to sustain Jesus in his proof of man's truly derived power?"
Can anything overpower Life, in the short or long run? And can anyone create a tulip - from scratch?
"Do you know the laws of the universe? Can you use them to regulate the earth? Can you shout to the clouds and make it rain? Can you make lightning appear and cause it to strike as you direct? Who gives intuition to the heart and instinct to the mind?" (from Job 38)
So can anyone truly make Life disappear?
