    How important is the resurrection of Jesus from the dead?

    "and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless, and you are still in your sins." 1Cor 15:17

    The resurrection of our Lord is the cornerstone of our faith.

    Pastors who refuse to preach the resurrection message at Easter are dead within themselves.

    I believe all Americans have heard of the basics of the Easter message. So if a church invites people to an Easter service by toning the content down to zero, and then they preach the whole message once they show up, won't people who are invited feel manipulated in some way? Like it was false advertizing? Easter eggs in the ad, then blood and death once they show up.

    I am not sure about this.
    I know that here in Switzerland not everybody has heard this great message.

    Just because a invitation does not include the blood of Jesus it does not automatically mean that they are denying in the service the truth of the death and resurrection.
    I have designed so many invitations etc myself: there are many ways you can do them.

    Maybe not in Europe, but I think most Americans have heard of the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus. The role of his blood is a more theological matter.

    I had to wait all of 25 seconds for him to mention the resurrection. And I thought that he was going to say something about easter eggs ?

    Did he mention the name of Jesus, our need to repent etc? You know, the basics of salvation?

    I just listened to the first part. I wasn't committed to the whole thing.

    I listened to the first few minutes of his introduction. I don't know anything about this pastor. I am totally unfamiliar with Steven Furtick and his ministry. I would add that I lean more to the Lester Sumrall, Novel Hayes, T.L. Osborn, John Wimber, Derek Prince, and Kenneth Hagin category of preachers to name a few. I know they are deceased. But I still have a lot of their material that I listen too. I am an old-fashioned saint. I'm not a real listener to much of the new generation of preachers.
