The impact of Christ’s resurrection can be seen in individuals and institutions, in art and entertainment, in science and industry, in calendars and carols, in tribes and in nations. All of human history—from Creation to Christmas to the Crucifixion—culminates in Jesus leaving His earthly tomb. As I implied earlier, and as history clearly reveals, the resurrection of Jesus stands aloft every other event the world has ever known.
And while belief in Christ teaches that forgiveness or redemption is possible for the truly repentant, in “Theory,” there is no forgiveness. The original sin of being born white cannot be absolved. You will live and die, and nothing you do or say can forgive something over which you had no control.
