Choosing Sides in a Post Resurrection Age
And, of course, that is not what men are looking for today. We all want freedom from oppression in order to pursue our own will without hindrance. We would all love to have our problems solved. But we don’t want the problem of our sins solved quite so readily. Because for Christ to redeem us from sin, He must condemn our sin and set us on a path of righteousness that we do not naturally choose for ourselves. Thus, Jesus began with Cleopas and Mary in the same way He must begin with us, with redemption from sin. And He explained it to them beginning with the Old Testament.
