This is a very interesting read. Time is far gone where people believed whatever other or the majority of the people believed. Today everything is about evidence and proof. Since the dawn of the scientific age, it is quiet difficult for many religions from the past to make it in to the future. This is not different for Christianity - especially with all the supernatural events in the Bible.

The fundamental belief on which Christianity is standing is the bodily resurrection of the historical person Jesus Christ. Paul says that if Jesus didn’t raise from the dead, the faith of the believers is in vain (1 Corinthians 14:15) which means that there is no point in following Christianity.

I totally agree with this. I remember the words of one Christian Apologist - “Christianity is not about bad person becoming good (not mere moral values) rather Christianity is the dead coming to life”.

If Christianity is just about a person becoming a morally good person, there are so many others ways/philosophies of life that offer to change bad person to good person. In fact in today’s world, people who do not follow any religion pushes to live a good moral life.

But the foundation of Christianity lies on the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ and our hope is that our bodies will also be resurrected at the last day.

What do you guys think about resurrection and its significance in our life?

"IF" the Resurrection never happened?

Too bad. It DID happen. Why these specious arguments based on wishful thinking of atheists?

Christianity is the only religion in the world that says we cannot do anything at all to earn our way to heaven, gain God’s approval, or pay for our own misdeeds (sins).

ALL other religions in the world are “works based” meaning you “earn” your way, or “pay” for your own misdeeds, or “gain God’s approval” by doing something.

Even once we are saved by Jesus Christ there is nothing we can do to earn that salvation, gain His approval, etc. We are to obey Him and repent - both on a regular basis and trust entirely in Jesus Christ as our Master and Lord as well as Savior and allow His Holy Spirit to sanctify us.

The reason the Resurrection is Christ’s Victory is because He was man and God and He overcame death! If you do not believe this, you are not a Christian. Period.
