  • Suffered, Dead, and Buried (Apostles' Creed, Pt. 5) | Anne Robertson
    of the Church it was simply another branch of Christian faith The Creed was written to give some definition to what it meant to be Christian allowing the Church later to say this teaching is in or that teaching is out on the basis of the Creed that had been established Whether that was helpful or not is another sermon but for now it is important simply to realize that the Apostles Creed was written in response to need and controversy As I mentioned in the other sermon the place where Gnosticism most ran afoul of Christian teaching was in its insistence that God could not really have become a human being in Jesus They taught that the Holy Spirit filled Jesus at the time of his baptism and left before his shameful death They believed that matter was essentially bad so a God who is complete goodness could not possibly have in any significant way become human Certainly God could not go through a birth canal or suffer the indignity of torture and physical death The phrase about Jesus conception and birth through a human woman is followed directly by this affirmation that the rest of the Christians did not agree with the Gnostics Jesus was as God conceived and born and then he suffered was crucified dead and buried all of the things the Gnostics said were not possible In modern American culture our problem with this line is a little different Comfortable Americans are decidedly uncomfortable in the face of a suffering Christ The account of what happened to Jesus in the last 18 hours or so of his life are not pleasant in the least Much is being made about the graphic brutality with which those events are shown in Mel Gibson s movie The Passion It will be released in theaters this Wednesday Ash Wednesday That brutality is an accurate reflection of the events It was a brutal time and crucifixion was so cruel and sadistic that it was forbidden for a Roman citizen to die that way It was reserved for the barbarians and criminals who were not part of the empire We turn our heads from such things As much as I would like to see the movie to be able to answer the charges against it first hand I don t think I can handle watching the brutality Such things still happen in places today but I don t want to know about it I don t want to have human suffering invade my space and haunt my dreams and I don t think I am alone In the church we discover our aversion every Holy Week Everybody wants to come shout Hosanna and wave Palm Branches on Palm Sunday A lot of people like remembering the Last Supper and a ton of people want to express their hope that death is not the end by celebrating the Resurrection on Easter But there are precious few who want to look squarely at
