At the still point of the turning world

"Q: What day most changed the course of history?"

Various scholars and public figures proffer responses.

What about the day Jesus was crucified for his people's sins (and resurrected three days later)? For to be without Christ is to be without God's redemption. If Christ never redeemed us in any possible world, then a gazillion different historical paths taken would each ultimately lead to the same place for all people in all places at all times: without hope and without God in the world.

  1. Patrick for me it is first when we realized Christ's reality. Second, Christ's reality. Third when we started rolling up our sleaves and layed hold of the plow "hastening" the day of the Lord!
