Today’s Reading I Corinthians 15-16
I once was asked by someone, “Do you really believe everything in the Bible?”
This was a bait and switch type of question for what they really wanted to do was debate/argue the validity of scripture.
I turned the tables by asking the same type of pointed question that Paul asked the church in Corinth:
Forgetting everything else for the moment, allow me to ask one fundamental question for the whole manner in which you read the Bible will be skewed by how you answer the question:
Did Jesus rise from the dead?
You have to answer that question first and foremost. The rest of the debate hinges on the answer to that one question.
Christmas means nothing without an empty tomb!
Any other debate about scripture is pointless unless the tomb is empty!
So, did Jesus rise from the dead?
Your answer will change your entire world view . . .
