Heidelcast 196: What Must A Christian Believe? (13) He Was Raised From The Dead

In our survey of the rule of faith, i.e., the Apostles’ Creed, we have reached the fifth article: “On the third day he was raised from the dead.” We live in the late or liquid modern world (so Zigmunt Baumann), at least in developed nations. There are benefits to living in late modernity. It is good that physicians now wash their hands between patients. We might debate, however, whether we have these benefits because of modernity. It is frequently assumed that the world is better because it is modern, that we have our technologies because of modernity, because of the Enlightenment break with the pre-modern Christian world. Perhaps but that way of thinking may be an example not only of what the Greeks called hubris (arrogance), which one sees on full display in most of the so-called “New Atheists,” but also of a logical fallacy: post hoc ergo propter hoc (after which therefore because of which). At this point we must choose whether we will be “Modern” or Christian.
