Senator Raphael Warnock was criticized in a tweet on Easter Sunday, saying that the “meaning” of the holiday was more “transcendence” than the actual resurrection of Jesus.
The tweet was deleted, but was answered by websites such as Mediaite and Daily Wire.
The senior pastor of the New Ebenezer Baptist Church said: “The meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ.” “Whether you are a Christian or not, as long as you are dedicated to helping others, we can save ourselves.”
There are approximately 2.3 billion Christians in the world, and Easter is one of the holiest days of the year to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. According to Christianity.com: “In doing so, he conquered death and saved us from our sins while we believed in him.”
Author and podcast host Allie Stuckey (Allie Stuckey) said in a tweet: “Nothing is beyond the resurrection of the god-man Jesus. Literally: His resurrection transcends our limitations on science and reason Concept. So, killing for our sins is only to conquer death in three days?”
Warnock provided the Sunday service, in which he talked about life and how this season is “separated” from the coronavirus.
He said: “A season of loneliness.” He pointed out how Mary Magdalene stood alone at Jesus’ tomb and wept, and compared her experience with the suffering in life, even with family and friends. With the help of the support system, so does loneliness.
He said: “There is a way to hide everyone in the shadows so that we can survive.”
Mediaite pointed out that Warnock did attract some defenders on Twitter. MSNBC host Joy Reid tweeted to former Trump prosecutor Jenna Ellis that Warnock spreads “false gospel and heresy.”
Ellis said that the human condition cannot save itself.
