Does II Cor 4:16;18 mean "HS raising up" our dead spirits (Rm 5:12-14) "presenting us with you"(v16) "although the outward man perish"(v18)?
CORRECTION: II Corinthians 4:14; 16
II Corinthians 4:14; 16 says
"Knowing that He which raised up the Lord Jesus [Romans 6:4] shall raise up us also by Jesus [Romans 6:3], and shall present us with you" (v14).
"For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day" (v16).
Why do today's Christians believe
***There is no resurrection of the dead***
>>>>IN THIS LIFE<<< (I Corinthians 15:19) like the Sadducees who are SAD; YOU SEE?
Don't they know if they believe that resurrection of the dead is only after our physical death although we are born "DEAD spirits" (Romans 5:12-14; I Corinthians 15:21-22), it will be too late to be "born again of the spirit" (John 3:5-7) after we are physically dead?

Romans seems to be speaking of being saved by Jesus, while II cor. seems to be speaking of the inward changes we go through with faith in Jesus.
