Because it can be preached in a way that preserves the false convert’s self-righteousness! Now let me just say right from the outset, I am not saying 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 is not the gospel. What I’m saying is, Paul wrote this here, but he also wrote the Romans road. God didn’t inspire through Paul the writings of Romans and then later on say, “Just kind of forget that and we’ll go with 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. Just ignore the other stuff.” He didn’t do that.
I am going to show you in this study that, yes, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 is the gospel, but it’s also overt her in Romans.
