    This is a quote from another thread. I bring it up to ask all of you who hold to this theory, do you also hold to a literal resurrection of Christ?

    I believe in a literal and global flood and I believe in a literal physical resurrection of Christ.

    I agree too. Anything less is to bring the integrity of the Bible into question.

    I believe in the actual physical ressurection of Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago. I believe in an actual physical ressurenction for us at the consumation of all things.

    1 Corinthians 15

    1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
    2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
    3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:


    1Cr 15:16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
    1Cr 15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith [is] vain; ye are yet in your sins.



    The resurrection is the gospel. One cannot be a Christian and reject that.

    Amen. Genesis is true as is the resurrection.

    What?

    Ummm we call into doubt Noahs Ark because we can't find a boat?

    Well ok,,, lets go down that road... Not finding a body must mean a physical resurrection. :smilewinkgrin:





    I take the Bible as literal history, except the prophecy's, I take them as literal future.

    If the resurrection wasn't literal, we have nothing to look forward to when we die. I know of no one who holds to the hope of being a disembodied spirit.

    So do I.

    The Apostle Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 15:

    13. But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
    14. And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
    15. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
    16. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
    17. And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
    18. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
    19. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
    20. But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.


    We may differ in interpretation but if we do not believe in the inerrancy of Scripture then we are of all men most miserable because we do not know what is true and what is not.

    If our rebelliousness is real, then it will bear itself out in history. And if God truly wants to seek and save us, then that bears itself out in history as well.

    The only reason one would want to deny the historicity of the account of Noah would be to also deny the historicity of Christ. "We don't really need a wonderful and miraculous savior; we can save ourselves. After all flood wasn't real, so neither are we as bad as Christ said we were."
