Romans 1:18-26 & Mark 16:1-8 Ressurection Sunday – He is Risen, He’s Alive. Don't push down that truth by exchanging it for the world!  April 5th 2015, Pastor John Geaney

Why do more people go to church on Easter Sunday? Or to flip it, why don’t more people go to church every other Sunday?  Is it because of not believing the Easter Story of the Resurrection?  If the Resurrection happened then….. But the reason someone doesn’t believe in resurrection is because of what Romans 1:18 says.  The dreadful exchange, the foolishness of thinking there is goodness in sin, and that in God there is emptiness
