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.- Eberhard Arnold

We experience that unity is at the same time agreement with the apostolic testimony of the New Testament, and agreement with the testimony of the future of the kingdom of God. Thus we experience unity not simply in the small circle of our community life, but as a unity that embraces all millennia; the spirit of inspired men and prophets; perfect unity with all original movements that were a spiritual uprising, with all movements, which sprang from the source, borne by the Holy Spirit and led by the inner light. We can testify that we have experienced that we become completely unanimous, when in the quiet hour the Spirit gives witness, and the light of Christ bursts into flame in our hearts, when in this silent concentrated attention the voice of Jesus speaks within us.

At the moment when Jesus died, he embraced all space and time, he embraced all centuries and all nations. He broke down all boundaries. He broke down the boundaries between the years. He broke down the boundaries between the continents. He broke down the boundaries between peoples and nations. He broke down the walls and small fences between the individual souls of men. He overcame all time and space in the abundance of his love. And in this love he brought unity and truth and love, and united everything in a newly created body on his cross. The new incarnation of Christ began when the first incarnation ended on his cross.- Eberhard Arnold
We believe in the crucified Christ and his death, and therefore we thank God that all our own strength, our own life and nature, died and was crucified with Christ. We thank God that we have died with Christ and are dead to sin, dead to the world and to the spirit of the times, dead to our own ego and our covetousness. We thank God that Christ’s death became our own death, that the judgment which broke in upon Christ has become our own judgment, so that because we are judged with Christ, we need not be judged any more now, that in him we received forgiveness for all our sins.- Eberhard Arnold
