The Truth About Easter

Easter 2017

Happy Easter everyone! I really mean that. But on this day that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has risen I’d like to offer you a friendly reminder.Unlike all the statues, crucifixes, art and most movies and TV shows you’ve seen, Jesus was not a blond haired, blue eyed white man.  He probably didn’t have six pack abs either.

See Jesus was born in Jerusalem making him *gasp* from the Middle East and a person of color. Yes it appears that not even the Son of God is immune to our whitewashing culture. Sad. Its even sadder to think that this history of whitewashing goes back to at least to the birth of Christ. So really, what chance do the rest of us have?
