Quote of the Week - Bishop J.C. Ryle

"Clinging to the Resurrection. There is a resurrection after death. Let this never be forgotten. The life that we live here in the flesh is not all. The visible world around us is not the only world with which we have to do. All is not over when the last breath is drawn, and men and women are carried to their long home in the grave. The trumpet shall one day sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible. All that are in the graves shall hear Christ's voice and come forth–those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of damnation. This is one of the great foundation truths of the Christian religion. Let us cling to it firmly, and never let it go." -- Bishop J.C. Ryle

This is a good summary of the resurrection. Unfortunately, a large number of atheists today do not believe in the resurrection.

Sadly, some who call themselves "Christian" don't believe in the Resurrection!
