The fact is, if Jesus Christ died on the cross and did not rise again from the dead, everything we live for and believe as Christians means absolutely nothing, Ill. 1 Cor. 15:12-20.

1. v.13 Christ Is Not Risen

a. He died in vain, Rom. 4:24; 5:10

b. He lied, Mt. 16:21; 12:40

c. He had no power to save then, and He cannot save anyone today!

2. v. 14 Our Preaching Is A Waste Of Time - (Ill. A big lie!) (We can help no one, all will go to hell!)

3. v. 14 Our Faith Is Foolish - All we do, our praying, studying, witnessing, working, hoping, holiness, praising is a waste of time!

4. v. 15 All Christians Are Liars - Our testimony is false, we are mentally deranged!

5. v. 17 We Are All Lost In Our Sins -Rom. 10:9; 5:10 Ill. Heb. 7:25 A dead Savior can save no one!

6. v. 18 Our Departed Loved Ones Are Gone Forever - They are all dead and in the ground, or in Hell today!

7. v. 19 We Are To Be Pitied - We are all fools, building our lives and our hopes on the corpse of a dead man. We are all hell bound

8. v. 20 Jesus Is Risen – And because He is, all the negatives are transformed into positives. He is able to save the soul. He is able to give us His life. He is able to change us from the vile creatures we are into His image for His glory
