The Resurrection our Hope
Christians are confused. Hence, it is no wonder that the world is confused as well. Watch a typical funeral scene in a modern movie which purports to give a "Christian" message about death. What will you see? You'll likely see a scenario in which death is made out to be no big deal or one in which the audience is promised eternal bliss in heaven. What might startle Christians to learn is that neither one of these ideas is the biblical hope.
