Can you believe in God but not in resurrection what are your thoughts about saducees?
- PubliusLv 72 months ago
The Sadducees were mostly wrong. They proclaimed Moses the greatest prophet ever so they wouldn't have to be bothered with other prophets and the New Covenant.
They denied the existence of spirits.
They denied the physical reality of the resurrection.

The resurrection of the dead is a fundamental teaching of Christianity and the entire Bible. If one doesn't believe in it, then how can that really help one's faith? Its really a rejection of both God and Christ.

Yes, you can believe in the existence of God, yet reject His teachings. But what would be the point of doing so?
The Apostle Paul made it very clear that believing that Jesus was resurrected is fundamental to being saved:
"That if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and shall believe in your heart that Jesus was raised from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:9-10).
Regarding the Sadducees, Jesus reasoned with them that Abraham did not worship the God of the dead but of the living:
“You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. But about the resurrection of the dead—have you not read what God said to you, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’ ? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.” (Matthew 22:29-32)

They believed not in the resurrection that's why they're sad, you see!

The resurrections recorded in the Bible are patterns and guarantees of the soundness of the resurrection hope offered by the Holy Scriptures.
This record tells of resurrections performed on earth by the prophets Elijah and Elisha, by the Son of God, by the apostles Peter and Paul, and particularly by Jehovah God in resurrecting his Son.
The resurrection of Jesus is the ultimate guarantee of the validity of the resurrection hope. So we too have a firm basis for trusting implicitly in the power and love of Jehovah God.
Sadducees: With reference to their religious beliefs, Acts 23:8 states: Sadducees say there is neither resurrection nor angel nor spirit, but the Pharisees publicly declare them all.
It was in connection with the resurrection that a group of Sadducees attempted to stump Jesus. But he silenced them.
By referring to the writings of Moses, which the Sadducees professed to accept, Jesus disproved their contention that there is no resurrection.

No. God sent his son to die so we can have eternal with him. You can only have eternal life if you are resurrected. If you don't believe in resurrection, you don't believe in God. It's as simple as that.
“Anyone who does not confess that the Word of God became flesh, suffered, died and was resurrected, let him be anathema”
—Council of Ephesus 431 A.D.

Who can stop you
from believing anything
that you wish to believe?
Resurrection myths were so common
in the centuries
before the origins of Christianity
as to be a cliché.
I have no thoughts about saducees.

I have a hard time in believing in either.
