Prof. Dr. Ing. Libor Brom
Scientists claim that man is nothing but an accidental accumulation of odd material put together during a very brief fragment
of time, doomed ultimately to disintegrate. The human body, they say, is composed of one octillion atoms, and three trillion
of such atoms would form the period at the end of this sentence. They add that an atom is not actual material. If enlarged
to one hundred meters in diameter, its contents would amount to waves moving with the speed of light, or faster, and the socalled
material in such an extended atom would be no more than a pinhead.
Scientists do not tell us what man is. Jesus Christ does. And He tells us how to live. That our thoughts and deeds must follow
the example He gave during His short Journey on earth. That as children of God we have been given eternal life through His
death and resurrection.
Christ could have saved the octillion atoms found in His human form. He could have made a compromise with Satan. He could
have retracted His teachings and denied His heritage before Pilate. He could have surrendered to the momentary doubts on the
Cross and shown Himself to be another ordinary bewildered mortal. But Jesus chose to do otherwise. He accepted the Cross and
left it as an example of Manhood.
There is no greater Love than the Cross. There is no greater Holy Day than the Resurrection.
