The resurrection of Jesus Christ is an essential and unshakable doctrine of the Christian faith. It is foundationally and definitionally crucial to the true Gospel and without it, the entire faith would crumble. The Apostle Paul, in his first letter to the Corinthian church, states unequivocally that anyone who preaches a gospel that denies the resurrection has believed in vain. This highlights the paramount importance of the resurrection in historic orthodox Christianity.
Thank you for the clarity by sharing an understanding of the nature of the true Church apart from the status of many pseudo assemblies.
As you say Jeff, without the resurrection of Jesus from death on the cross, there is no Gospel and no faith. Thank you for this powerful statement on THE central doctrine of the Christian faith. Beautifully reasoned.
Another great article Jeff. This and the "Forensic" one from earlier today are great pieces to read and keep on hand and use for references. Thanks for all your work on these.
Thank you for Truth of the Word.
