The Resurrection: Fact or Farce?
1 Corinthians 15:12-18, 50-58
The A bomb was dropped at the end of World War 11. Up until that time it was the greatest power known in the world. It brought ''OOHS and AAHS'' all over the world. Men still judge power in such things as politics, nuclear weapons and the like.
Satan and his forces from the beginning sought to stamp out Jesus Christ. He threw the worst he had at Jesus. Jesus subjected himself to death; but the grave could not hold its prey. He came forth from the dead. This is the greatest power imaginable.
The resurrection is central to the Christian message. As Christians we have a code of ethics in the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount.

We should be known for our stand on morals. Alcohol is our number one drug in this country. We should drive with our lights on to memorialize those who have innocently died in alcohol related deaths.
Drugs today are where alcohol was a few decades ago.
In 1984 I said in a sermon that marijuana will be sold legally on Main Street America within a decade and people will think you are a religious nut if you take an active stand against the legalization of it.
Pornography is literally taking over in many of our big cities. I have read that one out of six clicks on the internet are to pornographic sites.
Our country is morally going down the drain. However, I will continue to preach that Jesus Christ has conquered death. He is alive. He is making intercession at the right hand of the Father. He is coming again. And every person will one day stand before him and give an account of the things they have done.
