Death and Life

It is hard to know the truth behind death, and hence life, since hardly anyone has lived through it and come back to tell us about it. Perhaps life simply vanishes. Perhaps we come back to life as someone else, or something else, ad infinitum; but perhaps not.

Perhaps there is a release, but how? Based on our own sense of justice, perhaps the good people will be rewarded and the bad punished; but how good is good enough? It is so hard to be truly good; no matter how hard we try, we simply cannot be completely free of the selfishness, the jealousy, the hatred, the laziness, … Some of our wise people seem to have grasped part of the truth, yet we know deep down it is but a shadow of the real deal.

It seems if there is really a personal God, it is hard for us mortals to truly get to know Him, unless He reaches down to us Himself. Fortunately, He did, in the form of Jesus. He is the reason these young Canadian Christians came to act out the Christian story at the TsimShaTsui Ferry one day earlier in February 2007.
