In time for the celebration of Jesus' death and resurrection, the Washington Post prints an op-ed that asks - What's the big deal? Concentrate on fixing Earth instead of focusing on heaven and the afterlife.
Usual false choices. Not like Paul didn't talk about it in his first letter to the Corinthians 1: 21-24.
21For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
22For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom;
23but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness,
24but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
