Resurrection of the Dead is Real
Many persons believe death is final, physically yes, spiritually it’s the beginning. The resurrection of the dead is not a new concept. Many books, films, Bible Teachings and stories have been done about it. Many stories have been told of people who came back from the dead but what I’m about to share with you is not a story, it is for real.
Christ Showed the Church how to Achieve Resurrection of the Dead
Jesus Christ was crucified, buried and rose from the dead on the third. Jesus Christ is the first person to have come back alive from the dead and is alive today. Christ showed the Church how to achieve resurrection of the dead. Christians who are crucified and buried with Christ will also rise from the dead like he did. This is the Believers’ hope.
There are many skeptics and that’s OK because they will always be persons who don’t believe. Christ encountered many during his experiences on earth. Jesus had frequent discussions with members from two major religious sects, the Sadducee and the Pharisees. The Pharisees believed and taught the resurrection of the dead and the existence of angels, but the Sadducee denied both. Today, skeptics are appropriately grouped with the Sadducee, although these unbelievers are non-religious.
