“Much of what is taught in this generation, and even in a couple that have already passed, is simply a gospel that looks to see what it can gain from the Cross of Jesus Christ.” —Carter Conlon
In “The Resurrection: An Answer for this Generation,” a 28-minute special airing on Christian radio stations nationwide, Pastor Carter Conlon says “we have tried to be Christian and Christ-like in our own strength. But we have lost our Savior, in great measure.” He admonishes listeners to get back to Biblical Christianity, in preparation for the dark days ahead.
Pastor Carter Conlon notes that the first Christians “moved immediately from self-preservation to a focus on others.” They were not focused on what they could gain from Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Their hearts were fixed on how they could best serve Jesus as His ambassadors, and get the Good News out to the world.
“We’re going to have to learn to be the Church of Jesus Christ again. We’re going to have to go back to the basics, and we’re going to have to find our joy in truth, not in exterior forms of religion.”
Pastor Carter’s Easter message is powerful and life-challenging, woven among the testimonies of ordinary men and women who’ve been to the foot of the Cross-and are stepping out of a place of prayer, empowered by God with a vision for the future.
