Out of the Mouths of Babes...

Some months ago I was watching The Mummy (1999) with my younger sister (I say "younger," even though it's only by two years). For those who don't know, the beginning of the film shows the High Priest Imhotep and his lover, the royal Anck Su Namun, killing the pharaoh. As the palace guards arrive, Namun tells Imhotep to escape and remember to resurrect her.

My sister immediately went, "You know you have faith when you believe someone will resurrect you."

A great smile came to my lips. This is the precise faith that so many Christian martyrs gave their lives, and upon which so many Christian faithful pass away with to this very day.
