How the Resurrection Ruined Christianity

Chellew-Hodge, Candace
September 2013
Whosoever;Sep/Oct2013, Vol. 18 Issue 2, p11
The author focuses on why he thinks the resurrection story is the point where the new movement of Christianity truly lost its way and its real association to Jesus. He explains how the religion becomes about belief and about warranting those beliefs against all protests. He emphasizes how the institution has allegedly become a giant money-machine that is more interested about its doctrine, policies and finances than aiding the poor, oppressed or widowed.
