Only a complete idiot would call himself a Christian and not believe in the resurrection. The whole point of having faith in Christ’s death is because there is a life after death, and Christians don’t want to spend that life in Hell. If one didn’t believe in the resurrection, why would he bother following Christ? And why trust anything Christ said, if Christ is now dead and not raised? The difference between Christ and Mohammed and Confucius and any other religious leader is that Christ has conquered death! Why hope for eternal life in Christ, if He Himself had no victory over death?
