A friend of mine, Jewish by birth, told me he was off to visit family during Passover. Unsure if I knew the history of the holiday, he told me how the Jews were slaves of Pharaoh and was rescued by God via a bunch of miracles. Then he added, “it’s all lies, anyway. Holidays are just an excuse for families to see each other.”
It got me thinking about how people seriously misdiagnose the motivations of true Christianity.
An excuse for family get-togethers? A way for people to be good to each other? Just another religion on a spectrum of beliefs?
