Pitied more than all men

“If only for this life we have hoped in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.”  (1 Corinthians 15:19)  Occasionally I hear someone say, “I’m not concerned with life after death.  If I find out later that there is no Heaven, I will still be glad I was a Christian because it was the best way to live.”  Paul would NOT have agreed.  Christians who believe that “God has given us eternal life”  (1 John 5:11), who make sacrifices to “lay up treasures in heaven” (Matt 6:20  ) should be pitied if it turns out to be untrue.  We should be pitied because we die. (all men)  We should be pitied (believers only) because we have been deceived, have trusted something that is false.  Friend, do you believe in the resurrection?  Do you believe that there will be life after death, for you and for all those around you?  Is the resurrection real or just a nice thought?  More as we study 1 Corinthians 15 this week.  My love to you , dear friends.  Don
