The Resurrection of Christ-True or False?

Christianity stands or falls on whether Christ rose from the dead. The world my declare that Che lives or Elvis lives, or in Ulster that even George Best lives, but we know full well they have died and are no more walking the earth.I have always found one of the most convincing truths that Christ rose from the dead was that his friends and disciples could have easily saved their own skins had they had denied it.Rather, they were put to death with the message on their lips that Christ died for their sins and rose again on the third day.He appeared to them (500 on one occasion) and then before some of them had ascended back into heaven. He also promised that he will again come back as the Judge of the whole world, both living and dead. As the old song challenges us so I would challenge you:
'People get ready
For the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers
From coast to coast
Faith is the key
Open the doors and board them
There's room for all
Among the loved and lost'

We must get ready before he comes and should not put it off until later- or we may never do it at all.Isaiah tells us to seek the Lord today,to call upon him while he is near.If you hear his voice today please do not harden your heart, but rather go to him, confess your sins and give him over your heart and your life, and though your sins would be as scarlet they will become white as snow.I would encourage you to contact me if have done this or would like to talk to someone about this important matter.AK
