The resurrection was the consumate miracle,perhaps the founding event of Christianity.Why didn't Christians preserve the site of the tomb as a holy place for veneration?

Why didn't your god put a force field around that tomb so that the Romans couldn't destroy it?

people tend to worship/venerate Holy Sites


add a magic force field and it would lead away from God not towards Him

Does not the Church of the Holy Sepulcher enclose the tomb now?  How much more preserved would  you want it?

Only if your god hides himself. Then what's left but the force field to worship? It's a SIGN, a PROOF of your god!

So has it been preserved now or hasn't it?

Are you saying the tomb site was known and chosen by the Romans for this temple?
