Hope of existence

保羅說 : " 如果基督徒沒有永生,就 世人都可憐,我們不如吃喝玩樂,好像世人一樣,因為明天便要死"

"If there's no life after death, let's eat and drink and be merry, for we die tomorrow...."

And why do you think I keep risking my neck in this dangerous work? I look death in the face practically every day I live. Do you think I'd do this if I wasn't convinced of your resurrection and mine as guaranteed by the resurrected Messiah Jesus? Do you think I was just trying to act heroic when I fought the wild beasts at Ephesus, hoping it wouldn't be the end of me? Not on your life!
It's resurrection, resurrection, always resurrection, that undergirds what I do and say, the way I live.
If there's no resurrection, "We eat, we drink, the next day we die," and that's all there is to it.
But don't fool yourselves. Don't let yourselves be poisoned by this anti-resurrection loose talk. "Bad company ruins good manners."
