    What's so 'good' about Good Friday?

    Why on earth would Christians refer to this day as “good” Friday?
    It’s called Good Friday because even while powerful men were conspiring to kill the Son of God, God himself was acting to save the world from itself, once and for all. Even while the world’s authorities were conspiring to perpetrate history’s greatest evil, God was working to bring about history’s greatest good.
    It didn’t have to be this way. After all, God created the world as his good kingdom in which humans could flourish, and in which they would never have to experience evil. Yet, the very first couple, Adam and Eve, decided to seize power for themselves and, in so doing, introduced evil into God’s good kingdom. From that day forward, humanity would live in a world riddled by evil and its consequences.




    In the aftermath of Adam and Eve’s mutiny, God promised that he would one day send a Savior who would undo evil. That Savior was Jesus. The Bible says that “God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:17).
    1. On the cross, Jesus suffered so that we would not have to suffer.
    2. Through the cross, we can be reconciled to God and each other.
    3. Because of the cross and resurrection, we have hope for the future.

    Just in case you wondered why Jesus being put to death on the cross was called "Good Friday" , here is an explanation of why it was a Good Friday. God had a plan to reconcile people to himself. This was the "New Covenant" Jeremiah spoke of .
    "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant which they broke, though I was their husband, says the LORD. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD: I will put my law within them, and I will write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And no longer shall each man teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,' for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the LORD; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more." (Jeremiah chapter 31 verses 31-34)

    If god created everything, why did he create evil?

    Why do you blame Adam and Eve for their human nature? Why do you hate man?

    its they day to drink, smoke and do heavy drugs or whatever floats your boat. A day to Party hard and have hot toe curling sex. It is a day to eat until you pop and cuss a blue streak. It is a day to make noise and mock all things religious...


    now THAT is a good day.

    God created humans with free will and they chose to do bad things rather then follow Gods will to do good things.
