I believe in the resurrection

I know it may sound strange that a qualified doctor would believe someone could come back from the dead after three days. But if you asked me

Can you be Christian and not believe the resurrection literally occurred? I would have to say a straightforward NO. This quote puts it well.

Why would you want to be associated with or follow someone you believed to be a liar? Jesus, himself, said, “The Son of Man will be betrayed to the leading priests and the teachers of religious law. They will sentence him to die. Then they will hand him over to the Romans to be mocked, whipped, and crucified. But on the third day he will be raised from the dead.” If you believe Jesus lied about his resurrection, what else would you think he lied about? Christ’s life and teaching would be invalid without his resurrection. My hope for help in this life and hope for eternity would be destroyed had Jesus not risen.

Could Piper be wrong about the man in Romans 7 and does it matter?
