It’s Not Over (Even When It’s Over), Apr 12, 2009

1 Cor. 15:1-19
Implications of Easter

If Christ IS NOT risen…
1. …preaching is empty
2. …the apostles were liars
3. …faith is futile
 – people are motivated by fear, greed, and hope
 – faith is substance of things hoped for and evidence of things not yet seen
4. …sin has conquered
5. …the dead have perished

If Christ IS risen…
1. …Jesus is the resurrection and the life
2. …there is life after death

Our faith is based on fact
1. an empty tomb
2. historical evidence
3. fulfilled prophecies (who He would be, what He would do, how He would come, where He would be born, etc.)
