Yesterday's quote

Only action and readiness for action, only the courage of endurance can prevent us from giving way, from falling prey to this or that influence which leads to the abyss through arrogance, lying, adultery, and acts of injustice. Any sitting on the fence, any lukewarmness, any wish to be neither hot nor completely cold, lead us into falling away to the side of Satan, to injustice and to contamination by this world and our own flesh.

Christ’s victory over the evil committed by the demonic powers of self makes the believer one with God and his church. Through the death of Christ, his heart is pure, released from all the mortal guilt of his egoistic life. He knows that the baptism of faith has cleansed his body of the lusts of death. He can trust in the faithfulness of God, which has drawn him into the realm of God’s promise of enduring life. His heart overflows with thanks that Jesus Christ has delivered him from the blinding darkness, from the sinister spell of satanic tyranny.

Christ not only died, He rose again from death. So we too have risen. And the limbs that before served injustice are now working tools of the Kingdom of God. Jesus is different from Buddha in that he died for us and for our sins while Buddha died merely in the illusion of compassion and of denying the world.
