Don Merritt Now if there is no resurrection: March 30, 2018

Seriously now…

Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them? And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour? I … Continue reading

1 Corinthians 15:20-28 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. (15:20) If Jesus did not rise from the dead, then the gospel would be a lie; but He did rise from the … Continue reading

As St Francis of Assisi said to his followers

5. That no one should glory save in the Cross of the Lord.
