The Believer’s Hope

I Corinthians 15:12-22

What happens at the point of death?  There are only a few options.  The option of the Atheist is that there is nothing at death.  There is eternal non-existence that forever ends all hopes, dreams and consciousness.  A second option is that of the believer in re-incarnation.  That the life to come happens in a new form, one that leaves all memories of this life erased.  The third option is that there is some kind of spiritual existence after death, but that the life to come strips us of physicality.  Finally, the Christian hope is in the resurrection of the body from the dead.  How important is the belief in the bodily resurrection from the dead?  Today we will find out.
