Good Friday: Everybody Was A Winner

The Devil and Evil won, because they succeeded in killing the Holy One, the Devil's archenemy, master, and tormentor.

Mankind won, because it succeeded in silencing the Voice accusing it of sin.

The political-religious establishment won, because they were victorious over a major pain in their butt.

God won, because things went according to his plan.

The cross is a fascinating intersection of competing interests, all of whom, according to their own terms, "won". The question: can God use the greatest display of evil to achieve the greatest display of good?

Stay tuned…

It's Friday, but Sunday's coming.

Down from the cross they took Him.
In cloth of linen they wrapped Him
In a grave so cold they laid Him
For death - its victim claimed

Blessed Good Friday Richard

Thanks, Joe.
