Sometimes I wonder why people get so upset about today being called "Good Friday."
I understand that it was a terrible thing for Christ to be killed. It is appropriate that we Christians mourn our sin that caused the horrific death of our loving God. He was stripped, beaten, mocked, spit upon, nailed to a cross. But remember that the crucifixion was part of God's good plan to make us whole again. Despite the terrible events that took place on the day Christ was crucified,
it was in fact Good Friday.
