What are your thoughts on the resurrection of Christ?

While I don't accept the physical resurrection of Jesus's body, I can take this as a metaphor of some sort of spiritual rebirth amongst his followers, or a visitation by a spirit of immense power. I think the main idea is that the man and his message were a living message. Such are the thoughts of a serverly lapsed Catholic.

Being a Catholic, I can firmly say that I believe it happened.

Regardless of any individual's personal beliefs, it is one of those events that shaped the history of the world.

*shrug* It makes for an interesting story.

As a born again Christian I believe fully in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He died and rose again for our sins. If it had not been for him really do not know where we would be today.

Even when I was religious the questions that came up were designed to challenge the beliefs of other Christian groups,eg if they believed in the trinity then who resurrected him? If they believe in an instant afterlife where did he go when he was dead and what was the big deal about it. Now my big thought on Easter is "Hey, Cadbury eggs are ten for a dollar

There was no doubt that Christ was a good man, but rise from the dead he did not. People were probably so guilt ridden over his death they attempted to soothe themselves by convincing themselves he had somehow risen from the grave. But it didn't happen. He was as mortal as the next person.

I think it's great that we finally have proof that the paranormal does exist in our world. More seriously, according to my ancestors, Christ was a "G-d damn liberal" rabbi. Funny, that's what they call ME now.

OK, now for real: I'm Jewish, Christ doesn't really have a special place in my heart. I'm happy for the family that their son came back to them, and I'm glad his last meal didn't have to be a Passover seder. Nobody wants to die eating MATZAH.

Not gonna happen.

Um... i think it's a bunch of bull. Nobody can magically come back to life... but then, this is coming from somebody who doesn't believe in god.

I was raised Christian so I should have a good stock answer for this one, but I have sort of fallen in line with Wicca as of late, so I don't know...

I think the ressurrection of Christ is a nice story, but I don't know if I accept it as fact. Guess I lose my membership to the Christian club

I believe it from the bottom of my heart that Jesus physical body was divinely resurrected from the tomb by God.

The resurrection is the greatest gift the God has given me. That's the short answer. I'm not sure there is enough room or interest to read the "long answer".

Who's Christ? No, okay, really. I personally don't care one bit. I'm not a religious person, I don't believe anybody can rise from the dead, and Easter isn't particularly important to me.

Rather unlikely. But y'know...I wasn't there. I don't claim to know one way or the other.

Firelady, 23

Very far-fetched story. I don't believe it for a second. I'll accept the chocolate eggs and money though.

Shanna, 15

As a Christian I believe in the resurrection of Christ, as a new beginning of hope and eternal life in Christ.

I think it is one of the most beautiful things that anyone could possibly ever imagine.
