Isn't the core teaching in Christianity that of going to heaven when a person dies, if the person has done what is asked of a christian?

I posted this recently but it seems appropriate here too:

Strange, is it not? that of the myriads who
Before us pass’d the door of Darkness through,
Not one returns to tell us of the Road,​
Which to discover we must travel too.

Yes on when you die... but not really "If the person has done what is asked of a christian". (Basically speaking) :)

So, what is the Resurrection, which is a *future* event? Acts of the Apostles 24:15…”…going to be….”

If people immediately go to “another realm” after death…then what need is there for a resurrection?

There was a similar teaching that arose in the 1st.Cent, where the Apostle Paul said some “had abandoned the truth, saying that the resurrection has already occurred.” Paul said that that teaching was “subverting the faith of some.” — 2 Timothy 2:18-19.

Unfortunately, almost every religion has some sort of similar teaching; but we should expect the truth to be hidden, since Jesus made it clear that the Devil is “the ruler / prince of this world” (John 14:30) (but only temporarily John 12:31), and Paul referred to him as “the god of this world.” — 2 Corinthians 4:4. See also Revelation 12:9,12

Did you forget those other Scriptures: Psalms 115:17, Genesis 3:19, Ecclesiastes 9:5, etc.?

" 2 Peter 1:10-11 and Luke 6:17"

The above verses " 2 Peter 1:10-11 and Luke 6:17" have not been colored in red in the following Red Letter Bibles:
New Testament (RLE): The Gospel According to Saint Luke
The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ, According to St. Luke
World Messianic Bible Luke 6

and that means neither Yeshua- the Jewish Messiah, spoke them nor authored them nor wrote them and , therefore, are not a reliable source for guidance in ethical, moral and or spiritual matters, it transpires. Right?
