Another helpful verse is:2 Peter 2:6By turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes, He condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly.
A final verse:Exodus 32:20Moses took the calf they had made and burned it with fire and ground it to powder and scattered it.
"Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?" 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 15 More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. 19 If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.1 Corinthians 15:12-19
