Can we be Christians if Christ had never arisen?


The Risen Christ

The apostle Paul states, “If Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty” (1 Corinthians 15:14). And, three verses later, he made a similar statement, saying, “If Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:17).

Without Jesus’ resurrection, no one would have any hope of going to heaven. The resurrection of Jesus is the basis of the Christian faith (Romans 1:4). The early church multiplied quickly in just a few short years because of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). The Gospel is not about a “lifeless lord,” but a “risen Redeemer.”

The Resurrection – the Basis for the Christian Faith

Christianity as a faith is built on the Resurrection of Christ. Amen.
