What If There Is No Resurrection? 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 Paul begins this section by mentioning that some at Corinth were teaching that there is no resurrection of the dead. What follows are the implications of that teaching: Christ has not been raised Our preaching is in vain Your faith is vain (worthless) We are false witnesses of God You are still in your sins Those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished We are of all men most to be pitied Paul uses "if - then" statements throughout this paragraph to draw his implications of a teaching of non-resurrection. Vs. 20 states however, "But now Christ has been raised from the dead." Since Christ has been raised from the dead, these are the implications: Our preaching is not in vain, but is the most important message the world will ever hear! Your faith is not in vain or worthless, but is the most priceless thing you possess! We are not false witnesses of God, but tell the truth of God earnestly and plainly! We are not still in our sins, but have been cleansed and forgiven of every sin! Those who have fallen asleep in Christ have not perished, but are present with the Lord, enjoying His glory! Those who do not have our hope in Christ are of all men most to be pitied!

1 Corinthians
1 Corinthians 15:12-19
NT
nasb
Now if Christ is preached,
that He has been raised from the dead,
how do some among you say
that there is no resurrection of the dead?
conditional
But if there is no resurrection of the dead,
not even Christ has been raised;
and if Christ has not been raised,
then our preaching is vain,
your faith also is vain.
Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God,
because we testified against God
that He raised Christ,
whom He did not raise,
if in fact the dead are not raised.
ground
For if the dead are not raised,
not even Christ has been raised;
and if Christ has not been raised,
your faith is worthless;
you are still in your sins.
Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
If we have hoped in Christ in this life only,
we are of all men most to be pitied.
