RE Verse reading–1 Corinthians 15 (day seven)  “Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead?”  (v 12)  Have you been to one of those wok restaurants?  You decide the ingredients and they stir-fry it up for you?  Christianity is NOT like that.  Not even a little.  What we believe, what we teach is not subject to individual change or personal preference.  Jude calls it “the faith once delivered.”  Paul expresses the same idea.  “How is it,” he asks with disbelief, “that you have the brashness to call yourself a believer and yet deny the proclamation of the apostles and church?”  It is a bitter pill for moderns to swallow.  The message is fixed and for all time.  We are not free to omit the parts We don’t like.  “How FIRM a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, is laid for your faith in His excellent word.”
