there are a few things you can't overturn

Time Magazine writes that Dola Indidis, a lawyer in Kenya, is trying to get the International Court of Justice in Hague to overturn the 2,000 year old conviction and death sentence of Jesus Christ. Since the target of the lawsuit are the religious leaders of the time (Emperor Tiberius, King Herod, Pontius Pilate and the chief priests) it is proving somewhat of a challenge.

Indidis said, “I filed the case because it’s my duty to uphold the dignity of Jesus and I have gone to the ICJ to seek justice for the man from Nazareth. His selective and malicious prosecution violated his human rights through judicial misconduct, abuse of office bias and prejudice.”

It’s nice, but my simple response is this: there are a few things you can't overturn.
  • Jesus freely gave up not just His human rights but His divine rights for all of humanity. 
  • No person can commit a good deed that outdoes God's smallest deed.
  • What man intends for evil, God can use for good. In this case, the ultimate evil paved the way for the ultimate good.
Don’t try to talk Him out of it. Let Him give His all to you. Maybe you’ll discover the joy of giving your all to Him.
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
