Easter is the most significant religious holiday celebrated by Christians since it recalls the Saviour’s self-sacrifice so that we should all have eternal life!
This religious celebration not only gives all sinners (yet never to sin itself) a new chance (through change), but it also has significant psychological and cultural consequences. People are neither good nor evil in and of themselves, but their actions are so. A person is not better or more important than another person, but their actions can be more or less positive or significant in comparison. Indeed, a human being is far too complex to be judged globally and definitively by concrete actions, and therefore must be embraced unconditionally. This unconditional acceptance of human beings does not imply agreement with all of their actions, but rather acknowledges their complex nature and the fact that they cannot be judged globally, based on concrete actions. We give man the opportunity to change his deeds for the better by embracing him, and not his bad deeds! Finally, unconditional acceptance of oneself and others is based on a rational, scientific, practical, and religious basis. Embracing others as equal fellow humans, let us be reconciled to who we are, always striving to improve our actions and those of others!
