The Resurrection is more than a platitude and more than "pie in the sky" thinking. The Resurrection is the core of Christian teaching and as such has infinite application for human life. Good theology is a source of great comfort. While personal experiences of God's goodness and provision help confirm God's trustworthiness, our overall level of comfort and hope in the Christian Gospel is directly proportionate to the depth of our understanding.
In the face of gross suffering in the world, many people conclude that there must not be a good God in the world, or else none of this pain would happen. But does suffering and evil actually prove that God does not exist or that God is not good? That is the question Tim Keller answers in this podcast presented by The Veritas Forum, and his answer proves that the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is more than a platitude. If the Resurrection of Jesus Christ actually occurred, then the whole theodicy debate has been reframed.
