Easter Sunday

What does Easter mean? Every person who has been born (and thus died) on Earth will be resurrected. It is a free gift to all and is not the result of good works or faith. Jesus Christ made the resurrection possible when he himself broke the bands of death: "As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive" (1 Corinthians 15:22.) Contrary to what some care to believe, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints does teach and believe that all are saved in Christ. As a perfect man, through his death he was able to pay the price for all the rest of us who sin. His resurrection led the way and showed us that we will live again.

If you want to know what the LDS people believe, please check out the official Church website or talk to active members or missionaries. I am always amazed that people will believe the opinion of non-members (even anti-church folks) about what we believe (and take that as fact) rather than going to a source that actually knows. If you want to know what the Catholics (or Muslims or Jews or Baptists) believe, don't ask me. I may have an opinion and even some facts but would I be the right source for truth here? H-e-l-l-o!

Have a blessed Easter day.
