His Resurrection is the central theme for our faith – our hope in God! Without it we have none! If He is ‘not risen’ then neither will we be resurrected for an eternal life with our Creator, our God!
Each of us should consider where we go when we die. If we believe our death ends all life – and is thus, completely over – that we are then in ‘oblivion’ and that is all there is to this life – that we are ‘not’ eternal beings, then, we ‘reject God.’ We call Him a liar!
If we then also feel that somehow we will be ‘eternal beings’ and at our deaths will be transported ‘somewhere’ – to ‘exist in some form’ – and it will ‘be a version of Heaven’ – and our ‘acceptance into this place’ is based upon our ‘good deeds or works’ – our personal performance (which all other religions except Christianity seem to have as their basis) – then, we also ‘reject God’ because if we ‘believe that – then we actually must believe He made a horrible mistake in sending His only Son, Jesus Christ, to be crucified – to pay the penalty for our sins – to provide the way of redemption – to reconcile us forever to God the Father. Because if one person could ‘attain holiness and righteousness’ by ‘their own performance’ – Christ need never have been crucified.
